Unable to reply to PMs

Yes! I would like to become a memeber of te War Room but at the moment I am maxed out and I will pay the subscription as soon as all my previous internet investments produce enough to pay for it.

I know some will say that if I become a War Room member I am more likely to make my money back but I have kept saying that with every internet marketing product I have bought.

At some stage all of this expenditure will pay off, though until I can get something to be profitable I have to resist spending any more.

Unfortunately, I have another 15 posts to go before I am allowed to reply to PMs that have been sent to me. It is frustrating to have been informed of this after composing my replies.

Apologies to those who are waiting for a reply. Finding the post which prompted the reply is not that easy considering the amount of new posts that come in and push my posts off the page and a long way down the list.

Ah well! This post will get me one nearer to the 50 mark. I wish I could get a income stream going before then.

    i know you're broke buddy, but if you can afford $20 why don't you head on over to the warriors for hire thread and start outsourcing your services. judging from this post, you obviously speak fluent english. i'm sure there are plenty of people who could use a few articles or short reports written. but once you get a chance do join the war room, you'll learn a lot.

      Ah, that's nothing! Ok, maybe we can scrounge up a topic that you can add replies to and make things go quick.


      Now I have some questions for you.

      I just had a quick stroll to a couple of your sites.

      Have you tried promoting products in other niches?

      I suppose technically I am not so broke but I have to be extremely careful from now on where I spend any more money. I know there is much to learn and apply and like most things once a little success is achieved that can be the driving force to go for more success. Either I have to have a well planned paid marketing campaign that will not lead to a loss or else I have to have a well planned campaign using free advertising where possible.

      Thanks Mary for your advice, I will head over and check out the warriors for hire as have not done so up to now.

        I would just recommend doing it. I've gotten tons of people to check out my blog after sharing what I know freely on the forum.

        Had I not upgraded my account I wouldn't have been able to respond to the 30+ PM's I'm getting a day now.

        (This thread's fault)

          Thanks Chris

          By the way, how do you keep up with all your threads? I have just done a search against my name to bring up all my posts so I can see if anyone has added to the thread. I wondered if there was another way I ought to know about.

          I expect I will have to upgrade very soon even though I will soon get to my 50 posts.

    Thanks avenuegirl

    One of my problems is I have too many fingers in too many pies and not concentrating on one product and method and making it a success before moving on to another. I think I need to get an advertising campaign going to promote some of the products I have.

    I think there is a fear barrier I have to get across with paying for a marketing campaign. Your hear lots of people losing lots of money with PPC and Google. On the other hand advertising on Gmail can be very profitable with the right products.

    I have wondered about taking a less competitive niche product found on Clickbank and see whether I could promote that in some way.

    However, that is diverting me from the products I have already and really, I should find the best way to promote what I have. Instant Site Launcher is definitely a very good product to create affiliate websites with and I suppose I could create loads of site for myself but it comes back to the problem of marketing them successfully to make a profit.

    $20 is not too much. I thought it was in the region of $40 to join the War Room.

    Then the cost of a WSO offer. Again I know many have made lots of money by making WSOs and so I ought to try and do something on that front.

    Again it is choices, choices, choices and I have to chose one and stick to it.

    Any guidance as to what you recommend I do first?

      That is a great self diagnosis, and something many people never realize. Many people here in the Forum ask how to make money online. Does article marketing work? CPA? PPC? SEO? The answer is yes to all of the above. Practically everything "works" you just have to work it...one thing at a time.

      In fact, it was only when I decided to focus on ONE thing that I made my first dollar online. Focus for me has been key.

      Are these affiliate products or products you have created, products you own?

      I understand your fear. Heck, I am still afraid! Once you start making some profits, this might be something you should check out...

      One of the few WSOs I've ever bought...but I HIGHLY recommend.

      I've dropped Clickbank, and do one of two things instead...

      (1) Promote MY OWN products...HIGHLY RECOMMENDED STRATEGY

      (2) Use something like PayDotCom, which pays you directly into PayPal...immediate cash is a big advantage

      I will echo what has already been said, consider the Warriors For Hire section. That's where I made my first buck.

      It was from the reputation I built there and the relationships I formed that I was able to successfully launch a WSO.

      Even if you don't post a service immediately, spend time there to see what is selling and why. Could you provide something similar?

      Writing articles is always in high demand. In fact, I'm looking for one now... Email me at derek.ifocus (at) gmail.com if you're interested.


      Best of luck to you,
      Derek

          PMs that have been sent to me
          I agree - thanks for not crying about it.

          BUT - perhaps I'm too skeptical but if people are PM'ing you my guess is they are trying to sell you services or products or get free help from you outside the forum.

          After all, they can see your post count and whether you are member of the War Room - so that tells me THEY don't know the rules here. That's not your fault.

          I have occasionally sent help or an answer to a low-post member by PM but I start by saying "I know you can't answer this PM - this is just to help you out".

          I believe the War Room is $37 - it's good to join when you can but there is a ton of great info in the main section of the forum, too, as you've seen.

    You'll need to join the War Room before you can post any WSOs, though I'm not sure about Classifieds/Warriors for Hire ads.

    For now, post a Visitor message on your profile reminding others to email you if they want to get in touch. That's what I'd do if I were you.

    You can export your PMs to a file, making more room in your PM box without losing the PMs themselves. I do this every month or so.

    Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this post. You will be pleased to know I have joined the War Room before reaching my 50 posts (a couple of which seem to have got lost?).

    Now I am a Warrior Member I shall go there now and look at all the even greater advice I shall get through reading the posts and communicating with other Warrior Members.

    Despite having fingers in lots of pies I have just learned of a simple low cost way from a War Room Member to use a combination of CPA offers, Squeeze Page, and Magpie Twitter Marketing thanks to William Souza's low cost e-book 'Flash CPA' . This is a relatively low cost method to get started to get a profitable stream of income from email submits

    I now have to get accepted into a CPA network to get started. This will compliment the training I am getting from Philip Mansour on CPA and banner advertising. Some of the techniques I have learned from him are phenomenal.

    I think if I can get a little profit from a CPA campaign to begin with then this is one of the quickest ways to start earning that does not rely on anyone else and does not require a lot of set up and does not require a lot of money to get started.

    I look forward to meeting you all in the War Room.

    David
