Need A Little Motivation, My sites.

6 replies
Im 17, I've been on here for about 2 weeks now, I don't plan on going out anymore because I've really stopped caring about distractions like useless friends who just smoke weed all day. I decided to stay home and try IM. Im very impatient which is why i give up on so many "WSO" here. I usually refund because really i get frustrated and just say screw it. (I know that need to change in this business). But yeah well I've yet to make a dollar online but I dont plan on giving up, its been only about 2 weeks where I've actually taken this seriously, No products or WSO's seem to be really legit to me, they all seem to suck us newbies dry So, Im only doing Clickbank, and i got a category for a Amazon product list on both my pages. My first website Fast, Healthy & Safe Weight Loss Advice, Workouts, & Products. Proven to be Effective!, has had about 926 visitors, 355 unique. (From StatCounter). And my website which is about 8 months old, bought it awhile ago and just gave up. Internet Marketing For The Average Joe IM Niche, all my sites are by outsourcing, from seo, to the site itself, I change the content, and add every day to keep it updated. selfmade has had about 129 visiots and only 23 unique visitors in the past 3 days. (Should Increase, ive payed for a SEO service, it was like 77$ so i hope it was worth it, but i heard it takes a few months to help out). So Ive yet to make a sale but I dont plan on giving up although ive felt put down many times, I just want to succeed, I dont see a 9-5 in my future, sorry, i just dont. Thank you for reading! A little newbie indeed but we all gotta start somewhere right?

Advice, tips, and anything else! Thanks

    Damn, at least you started at 17! I started at 19 and sorely wish i started as early as possible. Want to know something funny? I had a weight loss site that looks pretty similar to what you have. I put top notch content on it, incredible SEO, got it ranked to gain 20-30 visitors everyday, but it couldn't make a sale.

    I sold the site for about 3 - 4x what i put into the site since it was highly ranked for 2 high competition keywords. The lesson i got from this experience? No profit right away? That's okay! Slap up an opt-in page on the side bar or timed while the visitor is browsing. Collect that email to sell to them later on! There is always profit in there, you just have to be smart about collecting it.

    As a comment about your dedication, when i first got serious into IM it was a large decision to change who i hung out with. I was around people that weren't really going anywhere so I chose to focus the crap out of IM to make it work. And guess what...it DID! My first year or so was super slow but it gets better.
    Don't ever give up.

    **If you want to see my site just PM me. The new owner lost rankings and I'm guessing profit, but i say its a good way to learn how to improve your site.

      LOL... I am in my mid-thirtees and just got into IM about 2 years ago. As long as you have the determination to learn, take action, and build something, you'll reach your goals.

      I know several others who get into this during their golden years as a way of earning extra income on the side during retirement. It's never too late but definitely a bonus that you are starting out now.

      Biggest suggestion would be to lose the distractions (which you have already committed to) and don't let failure stop you. Often times those are the best opportunities to really learn and ultimately help you progress even further.

    I was once in your shoes , it took me years to really understand how important it is to take action , more action less reading. Those WSO may be good, but if you not been consistent with our action taking , than their seem to be crop. You will know crop when you see, once you recognize it just toss it out and go get a good one and stick with it.
