    Since 2011. Might be new to IM if compared to veterans...but IM is a limited knowledge pool.

    Once you know the basics you know the rest. Obviously with slight adjustments and tweaks!

    I've been doing it for 7 years, made my first sale 3 days after starting.

    Made around $300 my first week, $1,000 my first 14 days and $3,000 my first 30 days, and my income has been growing ever since.

    The best piece of advice I can give to beginners is to learn and master the basics. Once you learn and master the basics you can create any type of income you like

    yeah lots of changes and learning that everything has a lifecycle is quite important...

    Also learning to rape a system that works for everything but also at the same time have something that will always trickle along and pay the mortgage....

    The also have fun along the way and dont take life too seriously :-)

    And the IM Lifestyle is a lot more fun than people let on...; well sometimes!!

    I started in August 2012, basically when I joined here.

    No money was made until many months after that when I got a coach

    Started in the late 80's running a multi-line subscription based BBS. As things moved more online, so did I.

    So I've been online a long time
    Don't get so wrapped up in making money that you forget the important things in life.

    For a long time. Didnt make money at first, but learned after wasting years and thousands of dollars - and am now on top. I love it. It's worth it... the payoff/tradeoff in the end.

    Since 1997. First online dollar earned in 2002 ($3.20 - it remained un-cashed until I lost it). A while ago I calculated I'd been sitting in front of this screen for over 50,000 hours. Most of it building websites and doing money making activities. Love it.

    9 full months. Wish I got into it MUCH sooner though. But then again, online marketing has become so much more powerful that there'll always be loads of money to be made

    1997 started developing software and websites, those were the days, ) back then a five page website would run you $12,000.00 that was just HTML, Graphics, a little content.

    If you wanted, forms, database and email, it was even higher.

    A lot has changed over the years, but one thing still remains the same.

    Change, everything changes, we sometimes think that all the good opportunities are in the past but the truth is its all about to change.

    Hi y'all,

    I see there are many veteran IMers here. I started June of 2013. I have been making money monthly but nothing to brag about because I make six figure income outside of IM. I hope to eventually build enough momentum in IM so I can walk away from my other gig.

    It has been a great journey since I started. I learn about blogging, SEO, offline marketing and IM.

    One of my biggest problems, when I first started, is that I can't get my eyes off shiny objects. Therefore, I wasted ton on money and time.

    Now, I am a bit more focus as I have more clarity on my goal.

    I am new to WF. I look forward to interact with y'all going forward.

    Confused with all the home-based business opportunity out there?
    I can help

    I started in 1999, this month is actually my 15 year anniversary of making money online, I made the move to full time in 2001 when my affiliate income far exceeded my offline income. Today, I own an operate a successful company that has been pulling in 7 figure yearly profits consistently.

    Being a grade ten high school dropout I don't think I could have accomplished this in any other industry.

    Since 2006. I built my first website in 2007 and I created my first product then. However, I knew nothing about internet marketing…

    I started really learning IM since 2010, one year after joining the Warrior Forum. In the beginning I was only a tourist here. I also delayed to join the War Room because I thought that it was good only for webmasters.

    I had many adventures, and I spent a lot of money. Wish I had found this forum from the beginning, and wish I would be able to evaluate its efficiency from the first days.

    I was so ignorant that I couldn't understand the value of this forum even after finding it.

    On one hand, the fact that I was so ignorant was good because I was too self-confident. If I knew what I would have to deal with, I wouldn’t have the courage to begin…

    On the other hand, it would be better if I had studied internet marketing very well before building my websites, etc.

    I believe that before starting your own online business you have to be almost an internet marketing expert. Internet marketing is complicated and there is fierce competition online. This is a general rule.

    I'm in my seventh year online but was in the "snail mail" MMO business for many years before that. Sometimes I miss getting the mail and finding it full of checks and money orders. Email payment notifications (while still very cool) just don't compare.

    Also since 1999. It's much harder to launch a business these days - most niches are approaching saturation point, and everybody is creating and uploading content.

    Still, I've had a great career in website development, so I can't complain.

    First wasn't sure what I do. Just made some $ in first months so I decided to understand how it's working. I moved from "I don't know that I don't know" step to "I know I don't know". And I stay in this stage till now

    Over 11 years now... Now I concentrate on trying to show newbies and failing veterans the way the successful actually make money. But, many just don't seem to hear what I'm saying. Can't save em all!

    Doing what everyone else is doing? You'll get the same results... 97% fail. Are you a sheep or a wolf? My team and I are changing the game. It's not as hard to make it online as you might think. Let's connect and see if we can help you.
