There is a post over at digitalpoint which I thought was really neat. A guy after reading about my experiemnts with ppc was inspired and started to do his own stuff. After trial and error he eventually found his grove. He makes some great points about why you need to learn how its done and not just try to copy.
Ok, i never wanted to tell anyone about this, i dont know shoemoney, also i dont know anybody in this internet business, but i can tell you one thing.
My whole family was in debt, years!! and not only 50K like shoe wrotes in this post, we lost our home and everything you ever can lose, i tried so many things in my whole life that i cant list them all, always trying to make some money, sometimes i succeded, sometimes not, well most times not!
Some day i found internet is a business that its worth to give it a shot, i tried it with ebay, was sucessfull a few months and i was able to pay a lot of the debt we had, i thought i discovered THE only way to make money online, until i read a few months ago an post by some guy called “shoemoney”, you all know which post i mean exactly.
This post changed my life, i tried MONTHS to copy his results he had with ringtones but i didnt succeded, only made little profits, the bills on my desk growed to an huge mountain, and i always had the thought of giving up.
Until i thought by myself, why copy him why not give your own ideas a chance? And this was exactly the day i started making profits, today i earn more a month than i ever thought i will, in a few weeks all my bills are paid and i can start a whole new life!
I dont say that it was shoemoney alone that brought me success, it was me alone, but he gave me the idea of doing other things like cpa combined with pcc, sites with subscription member areas and adsense and whatever, all i can say to all you other guys out there that always ask how to have success, read his posts, read what he wrotes OVER MONTHS, combine the results and you have an good way to start, an very good way.
And dont do only ringtones, dont do only that what shoemoney does, do a lot of other things that add up to an neach amount of profit, that is not only an nice income it gives you more safety in this business…Do your own stuff dont try to copy the success of someone else exactly, you will fail.
I lost a LOT of money in a phase of my life where i needed every damn cent i earned, for paying my debt always in fear that i lose my bankaccount or my internet trough this damn debt, but i continued and succeded at last. And now that i know “the secret” of internet marketing, im so sure me and my whole family will have a bright future and we will be able again to have things most other people think are naturally, as example making a holiday somewhere or having food in your refrigerator at any time.
Do all things you can, dont rely on just PPC, do exactly with what you had success and if its only making $2 out of $1… What i learned now, if you found a niche were you can double your spending and even if its only $1, you can do the exact same thing over and over again until you have $10k to spend…
If you only read forums and wait for someone to tell you how you have to do something to have success, you will fail! For sure.
Ah forget that lol, and i didnt even emailed the guy called “shoemoney” once, only readed his post and then trained myself all alone what i know, thats why im saying i did it on my own, hell i didnt even knowed html or php a year ago, my html i know i learned since ive done ebay descriptions for my shop, and the php i know ive learned after reading shoemoneys post and experimented a bit with wordpress. You all are alone responsible what you eat, if its noudlesoup 3 times a day or caviar, what you expect from other people? That they tell you what made them rich or what? The infos shoemoney handed out are worth a TON of gold… you just have to combine the posts he made over a few months, im sure he didnt even know how much info he really handed out ;o)
