To all EXPERIENCED FULL TIME Affiliate Marketers, this is not a B.S. offer.

I was introduced to affiliate marketing 4 months ago, and ever since then, I've committed to making money online. So for the past 4 months, I've followed various guru's and their teaching, like:

1. Niche Profit Classroom - Adam Sultanic (purchased 30 day trial)
2. Affilorama - Mark Ling (listened to everything on his website)
3. Get Altitude - Eban Pagen (i know he's not a AM, but just wanted to throw that in there)

After spending 4 months spinning my wheels "drinking their cool-aid," and researching articles on this forum. I've began to question if any of their techniques really work, or are they a money pit for newbies that don't know any better.

I'm serious about making money online, and I'm willing to put in the TIME, MONEY, AND A SH*T TON OF EFFORT. However, I don't want to waste time spinning my wheels with an obsolete technique or something that just doesn't work, nor spending 12 hours a day for a year to make 500usd a month.

So there's the deal, if you're a full time I.M. making serious money (>$6k monthly) now, and you're willing to start me off on my I.M. career by teaching me a strategy that really works, I will compensate you.

In addition, I understand it takes "money to make money" if you want to get things done faster, so I am spend additional money delegating work like: hiring article writers, spend money on adsense, etc etc. NO PROBLEM!

And lastly, I have many good relationships to some really cool investors, so if your strategy really works, I have access to capital to build and scale a company.


If you're interested, please send me an email @ iautomate@hotmail.com, and lets chat.

      I don't mind becoming an affiliate; however, form what I understand becoming an affiliate is not a sustainable business model. But, I'm a newb so what do i know.

      I would actually be more interested building a product, and have other affiliates market for me.

      What do you think?

        In four months - what have you done? How many blogs or sites do you have online? How many posts or pages of content?

        You tried a trial of one product -listened to another product - and I don't know Eban's product you refer to.

        A great thread about getting started and what really needs to be done

          Thank you so much for your reply. I completely agree with you that listening is not doing! I strongly believe that some internet marketers are more successful than other because various different reasons.

          I want to know why they're more successful and work more like them, rather than trying to create the wheel, so to speak.

            Because we work, when i started 6 years ago i worked 16 hours a day 7 days a week for 4 months . As i said before the time you put in to IM is your most valuable asset.

            Unfortunately posting a thread title telling marketers you are willing to take their PMs and pay a thousand dollars has just put you back. You are going to hear from all types now with all kind s of schemes. (whether you intend to pay or not) - Some no better than the ones you listen to already, some worse.

            Concentrate on getting traffic/customers. there are not that many ways to do it and they are all talked about almost daily here for free. The only problem is knowing what to listen to and what not to.

              That is exactly my point, "knowing what to listen to and what no to." How would someone like me know what to listen to or what not to listen to? That is why I want someone that has done it before and succeed and knows what they're doing to help me navigate through all the "noise".

    Well the courses you have already learnt from are very decent and they DO work.

    I would love to help, but if you can't make money affiliate marketing through these channels I don't think many others could help you out.

    I think you just need more time.

    It took me over two years of learning Mark Lings methods before I started making any money at all online!

    In most cases it shouldn't take that long, I just suffered from info overload to often.

      Thank you for your comment, I completely understand this method of trial and error. Let me ask you this, from the last two years you have learned a tremendous amount, right?

      If you were to do it all over again, you could probably make more money in a shorter time, right? Right, so I'm trying to learn from other peoples mistakes so i don't have to make them myself.

    4 months is not a long time - and don't be distracted by shiny objects.
    Have you chosen one particular business model, and work through it for 60 days or more..

    Have you decided how you want to make money online - eBay/ Affiliate Marketing/ Product creator /etc... You can't be jack of all trades, so choose one and start to focus, take action, stay consistent, and continue learning in WF.

      You still haven't said what you have DONE in 4 months besides look around to see what's out there.

      Of course I can look back and see mistakes I made - and might have earned faster without those mistakes. But the only way to get where you want to be is to take the journey - and we make our own mistakes along the way.

      So - if you need to choose a niche, you do some research to find methods others use to find niches. But you may still choose the wrong niche because you might misinterpret instructions.

      You can read 20 ebooks about how to pick keywords - but the best way to learn is to do hour after hour of keyword research until you start to understand what your eyes are seeing when you read results.

      For many of the daily tasks someone does in IM - experience is the best teacher. You make mistakes - you learn from them.

      You shouldn't be disheartened that you're not rich after just 4 months of getting into IM. Ask someone who's successful and self made if they did it in 4 months and 100% of them will say no.

      The rules of business and commerce are the same online as they are offline. You need to make more than you spend and have a business model that consistently makes you profit and that can be scaled up over time.

      Try and get exceptional at one or two things instead of good at twenty things. The big money in the long run is in the following - (if you get good at just one of these things you can make a lot of money) -

      1. Copywriting, or at least a working knowledge of how to make someone buy your products or through you website or affiiate link with the power of words. If you have to buy anything at all to help you in IM then go to amazon right now and buy 'Writing Riches' by Ray Edwards. It could change your life, and your bank account.

      2. List building - Start building your list asap and as the years go by you'll understand why so many people say 'the money's in the list'.

      3. Create and sell your own products. All those courses you've bought and will probably continue to buy for a while are created by people who make most of their money by selling courses and then upselling other products to their customers via their email list. You make money selling courses, not buying them.

      Good luck!

      Thank you for your post, I completely understand your viewpoint. And I agree, strategies usually have an expiration date, and the methodology is the key.

          There are so many decent people on this forum, I'm not surprised by this at all.

          I know above you asked that I learnt a hell of a lot over the first 2 years of me not making any money at all, and you're right. I knew more than a LOT of people around me doing the same thing.

          My shortcoming was that I knew I wanted to do this and I knew I wanted to make money, but I was also scared of failure.

          I didn't fully commit myself because I knew that I would be at square one if I failed and burned out.

          I spent the majority of the time attending webinars, buying products, buying WSOs, hiring SEOs, basically with the mentality that I need to spend money to make money.

          The reason that the people around me with the same knowledge were making money and I wasn't is because they were TAKING ACTION!

          I was thinking I was taking all the right steps but every time I tried to take action I was implementing the latest wordpress plugin or editing my themes.

          One day I decided to just take action, I don't think I have bought an eBook since. I know what to do, and now I know how to attract customers to my various sites/services.

          It's all about taking action..

          You know how to do it.. So get out there and make some money!

          (Of course, you need to focus on satisfying customers rather than turning them into cash machines)

    If you can't make money with free IM methods, you'll never make any money!

    Spending money to scale failure is the wrong direction.

    You should only spend money to scale what you know already works, not some IM BS course!

    Elijah,

    You sound like a "real deal" guy so I won't beat you up about the offer of cash to learn or your purchase of courses and not following (is that right?) through. ($1,000 would probably only interest those that are NOT terribly successful anyway, I would imagine...did you get a ton of PM's from this post?)

    We're looking at around $1,800 our fifth month in, but plenty of time/money invested there...and not big money. Hopefully, we'll be around 7-8k/month by the end of the year as we're starting to scale a bit, but there's quite a bit of work to do to get there. At that point, though, it's a pretty decent side-gig for us and, if we get there, would consider really going after it as a business path.

    It's funny you mention the investors. My business partner and I were thinking about IM as an investment strategy. We seem to be getting pretty strong ROI at this point and are wondering (hoping) it would continue. The problem is that I don't see why we would want to borrow the $$ and share the reward...I'd rather invest myself! I could see if I were building the next Mahalo or eHow or something how the capital would be worthwhile, but with our small IM strategy, I just can't see a way it's worth it.

    Best of luck

    In addition, I understand it takes "money to make money" if you want to get things done faster, so I am spend additional money delegating work like: hiring article writers, spend money on adsense, etc etc. NO PROBLEM!

    And lastly, I have many good relationships to some really cool investors, so if your strategy really works, I have access to capital to build and scale a company.
    While i understand what you are saying, this so not true.

    Everytime i see such a message i feel urged to give my comment that if your FIRST priority is thinking about spending money YOU ALREADY HAVE THE WRONG MIND SET already.

    You can think about spending money later when it comes to outsourcing, or once you have that good business plan/idea where you KNOW it works...then you can spend money on whatever it takes to put that plan into reality. (Outsourcing, content/product creation etc.)

    Wouldn't it be much better if you had said "i am willing to make A LOT OF MONEY without spending a single penny"....instead of saying "i am willing to spend (...) LOTS OF MONEY" ?

    This i am afraid is the wrong mind set, get away from focusing on whatever amounts of money you'd have to spend and throw down the so called Guru's throat.

    Sit back, read the warrior forum etc. get SOLID IDEAS (there are plenty), 99% of all the proven methods require peanuts (hosting costs, domains etc.). Because without a solid plan and knowing exactly what to do and how you will just end up spending more money and likely fail in the long run.

    I have access to capital to build and scale a company.
    Elijah, ask yourself...while you seem to exactly know where and how much money you would get to build a company...maybe you should first think about WHAT company you want to make before thinking about the funding for it?

      Everytime i see such a message i feel urged to give my comment that if your FIRST priority is thinking about spending money YOU ALREADY HAVE THE WRONG MIND SET already.

      You can think about spending money later when it comes to outsourcing, or once you have that good business plan/idea where you KNOW it works...then you can spend money on whatever it takes to put that plan into reality. (Outsourcing, content/product creation etc.)

      Wouldn't it be much better if you had said "i am willing to make A LOT OF MONEY without spending a single penny"....instead of saying "i am willing to spend (...) LOTS OF MONEY" ?

      This i am afraid is the wrong mind set, get away from focusing on whatever amounts of money you'd have to spend and throw down the so called Guru's throat.

      Sit back, read the warrior forum etc. get SOLID IDEAS (there are plenty), 99% of all the proven methods require peanuts (hosting costs, domains etc.). Because without a solid plan and knowing exactly what to do and how you will just end up spending more money and likely fail in the long run.



      Elijah, ask yourself...while you seem to exactly know where and how much money you would get to build a company...maybe you should first think about WHAT company you want to make before thinking about the funding for it?

      I want to thank you for your insightful post. I understand exactly where you can coming from, and I agree that throwing money at everything is not the best strategy.

      You're right, "without a solid plan and know what you're doing," you can end up spinning your wheels forever and wasting time, money, and effort. My goal of this thread to find a seasoned Internet Marketer that can teach me:

      1. A Solid Plan
      2. Coach Me - teach me lessons they're learned through their FAILURES & SUCCESSES

      I've been a strong believer that learning through other peoples failures and success is a much more efficient way of learning anything. Not to say, I'm afraid of failure, I believe failure is a good thing as long as you learn from your mistakes and move forward.

      However, if I can minimize my failure rate by "paying" a trainer or coach that can help and guide me through learning a new trade. I believe its a more efficient way of learning; however, most trainers will not do it for free, right? That's why I'm putting up some money to compensate people for their time.
