CRT Monitors & Affiliate Marketing in 2005 Thus, we once again seek to comprehend the deep dark depths of Lazy Neo’s wicked mind. Perhaps no one ever will, but we’ll keep on tryin’. And @twinaxe’s affiliate marketing origin story may yet reveal crumbs. It was 2005. 25 year-old Lazy Neo’s single thought at the time was–“parties”. Until a sudden decision altered the course of his life. “I made a big decision that should change my life forever.” One best friend, one 500 kilogram 19” retina-burning CRT monitor, one PC and one 6 Mbit internet connection later is how @twinaxe’s story unfolded. “In the end I paid €70 each month (€60 internet + €10 webhosting) for a forum that we only used to bullshit around in the internet. That didn't sound right for me so I decided to make some money online to pay for that stuff. I didn't know how to do it, I didn't know ANYTHING about affiliate marketing etc but I knew that I'll make it.” Torrents, that’s how it all started–a playground for music, movies and random shenanigans. Torrents led Neo to seeing ‘pop-up ads’ for the very first time. And that’s where it all began… 👉👉👉 I Know You’re Curious…Follow The Story Here

The First $10/day

September 12, 2023

The First $10/day Ah, the sweet smell of your first profits. Look at @hxid321’s glorious screenshot: All newbies have been there. Grinding. Launching campaigns. Testing countless offers. Cherry picking networks. Networking… Yet, you’re never convinced this advertising magic works. It took this man 40+ offers. And 5 different networks to see green numbers. Game ain’t easy. But oh boy do ye get hooked once you see The Profit. Yer welcome. And keep grinding. 👉👉👉 Give Thanks Here [SPONSORED] Guaranteed Income In Affiliate Marketing - Does It Exist?

Critical Affiliate Mistakes Allow me to rustle your feathers. How? Scary words like these: Fear of loss or spending money, especially when yer getting no results. The almighty shiny-object syndrome (maybe I should test this offer, and that vertical, and that juicy traffic source over there) Lack of systems or processes (I’ll test this and hopes and prayers that we get a conversion) Over-analysing and over-thinking. I.e. analysis-paralysis Being impatient, as in expecting 1 million dollarydoos by midnight. Ye should be impatient as an entrepreneur, but only when it comes to execution–i.e. the gigantic gap between ideas and actions, operationally. The list carries on. It’s massive. Anywhoms, these are the conclusions from one of our newbies indoors: “Decided to document everything and make myself accountable to the community. So, here we are. I've jumped into AM several times already over the last 10 years, and never stuck around long enough to make it work. I've been reflecting on why, and with the help of some reading, these are the conclusions I've come to.” If you can self-reflect in that same way… Well guess what? You’d be on the right track, too. 👉👉👉 Keep Track Of This Follow Along

$45k In 1 Day By A Sexy Solid Snake Dad Bod Near You

September 06, 2023

$45k In 1 Day By A Sexy Solid Snake Dad Bod Near You Remember this thread? Remember we were about to riot? Jaybot promised the numbers. He promised. And the juicy inner workings of his campaigns. So, my bag of crafty newsletter spells has just run out. I don’t know how to stop The Jaybot. Not anymore. He’s now used my own tricks against me…twice. The dad bod, the myth, the legend just pulled a $45k/day. And he won’t tell us what the ROI is. Not yet, at least. Look at this, I didn’t write this. He did. He’s mastered the art of the newsletter: “it’s been awhile since 4th grade so my math might be off but I think... (thanks to that tiny little $110 late conversion from Google)... that's around $45k IN ONE DAY Wew. Lad. Yeah yeah. Revenue schmevenue. Doesn't mean much if I paid $46k to get that, right? Well I didn't. I paid less than that. How much less? How's about this: SOLID SNAKE was a fantastic character in the Metal Gear Series and all of the games still hold up to this day. But we're not talking about video games... OR ARE WE?! In any case: Solid ROI. Won't say exactly how much because, you know, it's more mysterious that way. Plus. I'm pretty sure my kids and wife spent it all already. Inflation. And. Diapers are hella expensive. Will update the FA with some crazy details this week. Look forward to it.” I have one last ace up my sleeve, and that’s it–but I’ll save it for darker days. Yer welcome…I guess. I’m even forced to use an emoji: 😾 👉👉👉 Send Yer Thanks & Complaints In Here [SPONSORED] 3 Criteria For the Best Adult Dating Offers?
