Hi everyone! I am an "old" ( 10+ years ) experienced online marketer with an awful last two years in terms of ROI. I am looking for a clear path, already walked on, and to improve experience and knowledge while helping, if it's the case.

I have started this by chance, while I was a student. I was selling phones, and an acquaintance ( back then, cause now we live next door, in something like the Friends TV show lol ) asked me to lend him an expensive phone, to impress the girl he was dating. The phone was stolen. He had no money to pay back, so I told him to look for me if he ever has the money to pay back, no interest. After half an year, he looked for me. He payed back the money, and as a bonus, he shared with me what he learned in the last 6 months in the small online venture he started and which was already producing nice money.

So that's the way I started, and never looked back. Overall, there are more good years than bad ones, 4-5 years of my life I even had from 4 to 9 employees, but for some reason, which probably lies within me, I have never been able to sustain 5 consecutive years with quality profits.

I have been hit by Panda, Penguin, websites depressions and various stuff that from time to time caught me off-guard. I should have probably learned by now not to keep all my eggs in the same basket, yet each time I hit the golden goose I can't help but to milk it at full sails.

I have a programming College diploma, business administration University one, I am a fun outgoing man, a bit naive sometimes, stupid other. I love computers ( including games ), sports, football, the gym, cycling, motorbiking, off-road riding, reading, cooking, animals ( I have 2 cats and a french bulldog ), the outdoors, I am a bit of Jack of all trades in my life, I don't fit neither in the nerd or in the tough guys niche.

Beside PPC, which I have no knowledge about, I have at least some experience in everything else. The problem with me is that I always developed my next venture after receiving free or payed tips, so although I studied and learned a lot to be able to develop the tips, I have never tested things by myself, and this might be the issue in getting caught off-guard. I might be the donkey that carries the bags, not the smart guy riding it.

Tall, blonde, blue eyes, great looking, smart and modest too! ( This line is for marketing purposes, you can ignore it. )

Cheers

I completely understand where you are coming from, there are so many online scams out there. I have experienced quite a bit of this myself, but I do some research and use my instincts and give some things a try accordingly. I am brand new here, but this is a lot different than any other website or job I have found online so far and I believe it will give me the knowledge I need to succeed. I hope it does the same for you and everyone else. Good luck!

Hi Kyle

The premium membership looks nice, but I invested 50k+ in the last 2 years with a very low ROI, so until I will start earning good money again I will not pay for anything. Cheers

Sounds like it has been quite a journey to find your way here to WA Stefan, but I am glad you did. $50K, that is crazy.

There definitely are a lot of scams and programs that simply do not teach you what you need to know out there. It sounds like you may have run into one or more of these on your way to making it here at Wealthy Affiliate. I can assure you that much brighter days are ahead now that you have found WA and I really do look forward to working with you.

If you ever need anything at all going forward, I am personally here to help you out so feel free to drop me a reply to this post or you can find me in chat (I am frequent there).

I did not use a program. I used to make 10-15k a month from adult affiliate programs, then a "friend" buried me, lost everything in several months, yet I still had reserves. Since I had enough of testing and I wanted to move directly to another working method, I decided to pay for advice. I knew that someone was a good webmaster, making money for many years with no pause, so I offered to pay him a lump fee for his teachings. Which made me a marvelous profit of under 1000k, with an investment of around 35k. After that, I tried the same thing with another person, an aquintance, same story. I hired writers ( on my local company ), invested other tens of thousands of dollars, same result. Now I can't afford to pay the same fees anymore. Now if I do the math, 50k is less than I invested, but I don't like remembering that for the obvious reasons :)) More or less, ill advice together with Panda or Penguin got me in the actual position, looking for a golden goose.
I have bought a warrior forum premium access, some wso's, watching some source-wave videos ( warrior offers look to me like some baptist sermon, money thrown away ), ended up here from warrior forum, and continuing my studies, I firstly want to get a clear view of what I am planning to do before moving forward.

You are going to continue getting hit by Google updates if you don't create a proper foundation from the get go. What we have been teaching for years is Google proof as we teach you how to create content in a way that Google continues to look for....quality.

Looking for tricks that get around algos are so temporary and hanging out on forums where people are just there to promote their next "amazing" product will put you through the spin cycle.

Everything you need is here Stefan and I know you have what it takes and then some to create a long term and very successful business online.

The spam venture was a clear error of judgment and I am not planning to return there. I totally agree with you on both subjects, and thank you for your kind words.

It seems our relation starts based on a lie. Because I said that I will not upgrade to premium, yet I did that. Sorry!
