I banned myself a few years ago because... well a lot of reasons, swore I wouldn't return too, erased all my posts with many gems but after the crazy rollercoasters I just got off/on/off/on/off again while success happened I've decided to revisit some of my past and dedicate a lil' time to interact and help those that are about to embark on this crazy journey. Or those that have been at it for x years and still haven't hit and have conditioned themselves to only try the same formula over and over again until they are exhausted and twice as broke.
Anyway, wanted to say hello, I'm the guy that owns DUBturbo which was a CB top 10 and is now a private program after being sabotaged - I've launched 40-50 .com's mostly under CB and mostly split testing to find my winners, my life has been changed and reinvented due to I.M. success and my time becoming truly mine more and more. Now it's a mish mash of real estate, IM, crypto, and actually enjoying my life (4hr work week but only after x years of working xxhrs a day).
Not really sure who or how I can help as I still see a lot of the same incest marketing to marketers with gimmicks and monetizing each other from within the group vs working together to go after true masses/marketshare.. so I'll guess that if you've already experienced some success and have the usual learning curve under your belt but can't seem to hit big (not mmo stuff, actual whitehat end consumer products that are not marketers) - feel free to show/tell/ask/nudge me and I'll take a look (free, I'm not selling anything, don't do WSO's (EVER!!), and don't market to marketers or consult for a fee, I'm good re $).
Great to see some of the oldschool here still too, and sorry in advance there are personalities that I will not interact with because I don't believe in fake personas or profiles where it's not really you and you know who you are so let's agree to just stay out of each others way to avoid BS, I see YOU are all still here too.
EDIT: Feel free to use this thread to ask anything you've ever wanted to ask about our world. I've been through it all from getting attacked by competitors on 6month espionage campaigns, to generating millions year to year through affiliates until it went bust - and I've played in many niches so don't be shy - ask things you've always wanted to ask.
