I have been so busy keeping my blogs updated and also caring for my mother who had a stroke a few months ago.
My income has been constant as I did not manage to find the time to push up my potential earnings but just to maintain it only.
However, my friend who started blogging with me has double his income before the year is ending!
So bottom line, one must be focus and also put in sufficient effort to see your earnings grow too!
But I am glad to say that I still managed to maintain a constant income despite my spending some time caring for my aged parents and other distractions within the family.
With so much distractions, I am not able to do much but will have to review my strategy and do some forward planning now for year 2010.
So seriously, my friends, you can definitely make some income from IM but you have to start NOW.........
And then slowly make your income grow with time as there is no magic formula or overnight success but pure hard work like any other job.
Wish you the best for the rest of the year, 2009!

If you have not done anything yet about your Internet Marketing business then you have to act now!
After working on my Internet Marketing business for slightly more than a year, the stream of income is coming in slowly now. Though it may not be sufficient to replace a proper income yet but if I work hard on it, I am confident it will grow slowly.
So my advice to you is that if you are serious about going into Internet Marketing business, you have to take action and start now. It is going to take some months before you can see some income coming in and then you have to grow it.
Blogging is a basic skill that you need to start to work on and it will help you in your IM business.
Visit my blog on How To Blog at http://howtobeginablog.blogspot.com/ if you are still not very clear on what it is about.
One more important thing that you should also note is that you should not worry about writing perfect English. Use features like spelling check etc....
Once you start writing or blogging, you will get the hang of it.
My friend was scare of writing early last year but once he tried writing a few articles and blogging, he no longer fears it. In fact, he is earning more than me today!
So start Blogging NOW!
May The Force Be With You.....!
I was going through my affiliate programmes that I have joined and I was surprised to find that I have made my first sale with Commission Junction in Jan 2009.
A commission of $10.00 !
This is after one year of effort though.
It seems that 2009 is a good year for me as I started to have a steady stream of income from my Text Ad Link on a monthly basis.
The challenge is to put in more effort to increase such income from the different streams like ClickBank and Google Adsense too.
So I have to worked harder too and push up my income for 2009 and beyond.

I just realised that my ClickBank account have been debited $1 for the past two months so I wrote to them to enquire on the debits.
I just got their reply and I was initially taken aback by their policy on dormant accounts.
I think it is important to share it with you as follows:
Accounts with a positive balance but no earnings for an extended period of time are considered dormant. Dormant accounts are subject to a charge of $1 per pay period after 90 days of inactivity, $5 per pay period after 180 days of inactivity, and $15 per pay period after 365 days of inactivity."
Well, It looks like if I do not get anymore sales, I will eventually lose all my income. However, I suppose they are charging me for administrative charges if I am not active.
But the sad truth is that I am active but not making any sales for the past 3 months!
So my friends, please be aware of it when you sign up with ClickBank as you will have to make an average sale every 3-4 months to keep what you have earned otherwise they will be debitted slowly ove a long period of time.
So I have to push my sales up and not lose my income and meet the threshold value so that they will issue me a cheque.
Be motivated and not lose hope if you are in a similar position.

So I hope by sharing this information, you are motivated to pursue your own IM initiatives accordingly.
Good luck in 2009!

As I mentioned in my earlier post, my friend ,who started with me in IM a year ago, recently received his FIRST ClickBank cheque after earning more than USD100 from his affiliate marketing initiatives.
Here is a copy of his ClickBank cheque to prove to you that IM income is very real. ( I have to blank out the personal details for his privacy. )
So if you are keen to get into IM, get off your butt and do something about it as it is likely to take some time and effort to get some income coming in.
It is not an overnight miracle....!
Good luck in 2009!

I hope you have taken advantage of my compiled Xmas giveaways and the video on how to make use of the Graphic Wizard to make an eBook cover.
I avoided participating in this year Xmas and New Year giveaways as I do not want to be distracted and subscribed to many of the 'experts' for the freebies.
If you are totally new to IM and have time to spare, then go ahead to experience it.
So what are you goals for IM this new year, 2009?
I have been thinking over the Xmas and New Year holidays and here are a few of them :
- Improve my Affiliate Marketing initiatives as I did not make any income from it last year
- Come out with at least one new product to sell
- Continue to maintain , if not improve, my Google Adsense income as it has been a bit irregular monthly
I think it is important to have some goals in mind to keep you on track but make sure it is realistic and achievable, of course.
It would be nice to say that I want to make my first million in year 2009 but it is likely to be a dream than an achievable goal, I think!
But do not stop dreaming as dream do come through later if you work on it.
So have a good year in 2009 and stay healthy too.....
P.S. BTW, I got some new income from offering one of my top traffic site to host advertisement. Very excited about it and what a way to start the new year. So it only shows that hard work will pay off eventually.
P.P.S.S My IM friend crossed the $100 income threshold last year and he will be expecting his first ClickBank cheque soon. We are excited and I am happy for him.
