I never thought I will be saying this and I may tick off a lot of people. Sorry for being blunt, but I am starting to believe that the only way to make money with online marketing is to become a scammer and BS people. I am now involved with IM for about 18 months and made little money online when I started off. In Dec 08 I was laid off and decided to do IM full time. I was extremely excited about this as I knew the possibilities with IM. I joined two online training programs and did everything they taught. ( I then found that they just want to sell you more and more of their own programs without really wanting you to be successful) I TOOK ACTION IN A BIG WAY!!! I did extensive niche market and keyword research, published and optimized landing pages, websites, published blogs, Squidoo lenses and also wrote many articles (Some articles and landing pages 1st page on Google). In addition I am running PPC campaigns on Google and MSN and also Adbrite and to date spend a fortune on advertising. No sales. I also just want to add that I did a lot of mindset training, Tony Robbins, (by the way the video's of Anthony Robbins added to this forum is excellent), did the firewalk, yes walked over fire, do affirmations and visualization exercises, etc. and I can taste success, but still nothing. I am now in the situation where I depleted my savings (mostly on IM) and I am losing my house, despite working 18 hours a day on the internet business for the past 7 months. Can anybody please tell me I am not crazy to still believe IM is the way to go while everybody who supported me in the beginning is now constantly telling me I am wasting my time, money and throwing everything away. Please just your honest opinion and also please do not try and sell me another program or scheme. Many Thanks "Who Will You Be"
