2.1 Transcript Below

What’s going on, you guys? Another day, another lesson here at F.I.M.P.

And I’ve probably said it too many times leading up to this, but I can’t overemphasize how important this section is. And I don’t understand why it’s skipped over in every internet marketing product that I’ve ever seen. But, without being said, I am here to teach it.

And I know based on the patterns I’ve seen over the years that I’ve had on my personal journey and that I’ve witnessed in my friends that are also very successful internet business owners, this is where it’s at. This is the main determining factor for whether you succeed or fail in this industry.

It’s kind of interesting because to a degree it’s a little bit of reprogramming over what most people – it may not be reprogramming for you – but it’s reprogramming for what most people expect out of this industry. And I want to start off this section by talking about the only way that you can guarantee your success online.

And the first thing that I want to talk about is “Get Rich Quick” is a myth that was created by product publishers. Period. It just doesn’t exist. I doesn’t happen. I can’t overemphasize that.

I’ve reviewed hundreds of products myself on Stopping Scams and prior to that I ran a site called No More BS Reviews where I reviewed products in this industry. Time and time and time again when you see anything automated, you see anything shortcut, you see anything related to “Get Rich Quick” of any kind, the product publisher just totally fails to deliver on those claims. And typically, they’re selling a really outdated product.

“Get Rich Quick” does not happen. The product publishers created that world… they crafted this world where you can use internet marketing to get rich quick because if they can convince you it’s easy, it’s easier for them to sell you a product. It’s easier for them to make money at the end of the day.

If it’s hard… like I’m sitting here telling you right now and I fully expect as I get into this, as a lot of you are going through this training, some of you are going to hit some resistance and go, “No, this guy’s full of shit and it has to be easy. There has to be easy strategies. He just doesn’t know them.”

I’m here to tell you I’ve been in this industry for many years now, I know a lot of successful people, I’ve reviewed hundreds of products personally – it doesn’t exist.

Now I know after saying that, there are plenty of people that are going to go, “You know what…”, they’re going to shut off this video and they’re going to go, “I’m going to follow someone else because they can teach me how to get rich quick.” It just doesn’t exist.

Any money you spend on a product that claims to teach you how to get rich quick… it’s going to be a waste of money. It’s not just going to happen.

I’m sorry. I don’t mean to be a pessimist or a negative Nancy here but I want to really… this is the reprogramming aspect… so many people think that internet marketing is synonymous with getting rich quick or taking shortcuts or something that’s easy – it’s not.

Every single business takes serious dedication and internet marketing is no different. You’re going to have to learn a lot of new skills and you’re going to have to work really hard. If you’re willing to do those things… running an internet business, owning a profitable internet business is indescribably awesome. There is no way I can explain how great it is.

Even if you’re not making money hand over fist, even if you’ve just replaced your salary, it makes a really big difference because you work for yourself, you work from home, you have complete flexibility in your schedule, and the coolest thing of all is that you can travel anywhere you want and your business travels with you.

But as opposed to working really hard on a brick and mortar business that anchors you, you can work really, really hard on an internet marketing business, learn some new skills, and it’s a lot more freeing. So it’s totally worth it. I really want to emphasize that. It’s totally worth it. It’s just going to be a different road than I think many people imagine as they started watching my training.

But like I said, the very important thing to remember is if you’re willing to put in the time to learn and the effort to build, internet marketing is incredible. There’s nothing else like it. I really want to emphasize that because I don’t want to give you all bad, bad, bad without the good because there’s a lot of good that this industry has to offer.

So one of the things that I do in my day-to-day task is I’m part of a community where people share their goals. People share their goals to be held accountable to them, to just kind of put it out there. And I can’t tell you… this is from like two days… how often I go into those tasks – because I respond to all of them. Any time someone’s going to put themselves out there like that and share their goals, I am absolutely going to take the time to read them and give them advice and respond to them.

These are the kind of goals that people set when they’re buying into what product publishers have told them all along: that they can get rich quick and that this is a fairly easy industry to start seeing results in.

And that could be true if you already have the site with a ton of traffic or you had a huge marketing budget. You can cut out a lot of the months of hard work. But still, even with that, there are no guarantees that you would get rich quick… or get rich at all, really.

So I just want to share a few of these, because for me… I know they have the best intentions… but as someone that has busted my ass to succeed in this industry and every one I know that’s successful in this industry has grinded and grinded and put blood, sweat, and tears into their business… and then you see someone saying that they’re going to work 10 hours a week and they want to make seventy to ninety grand. It just doesn’t happen.

Once you build a business up to a point, once you’ve put in all those hours and you grind, you can get to the point that you turn it more into a passive stream of income and some of my businesses are like this where I put in maybe 5 to 7 hours a week and that business continues profiting. It continues producing five figures a month. That is possible. But it takes a ridiculous… it took me like two years of work on each one of those projects to get there. A lot of that was learning curve for me, too.

So with this training, you might be able to get there within 12 to 18 months to where it’s fairly passive. But anywhere around it, there’s a lot of hard work from you personally required by your business. This is your little baby that you have to grow up and get healthy and eventually that baby is going to make you money. You have to be willing to put in the work.

So saying you’re going to work 20 hours and you want to make half a million per year and you’d be ecstatic earning over 1 million dollars – it’s not going to happen. Those are not reasonable goals. Those are not setting you up for success long-term.

If you’re talking about making half a million dollars a year, 3 to 5 years from now – totally achievable in this industry. But that’s not what this person is saying and it’s certainly not going to happen working part-time. So, 2 hours daily, they want to make ten to twenty grand a month – it just doesn’t make any sense.

However much free time… I say it a lot… Whenever I get some free time, I want to make somewhere between $25,000 a month and a million dollars a year – well, I’m going to give this business all my free… you know, whenever I have some free time. Whenever I feel like it.

You’re not going to grow a profitable business outright. Especially an extremely profitable business outright. It’s just not going to happen.

So I know these people had the best intentions. It’s not their fault that they’ve been essentially programmed incorrectly by product publishers promising them the moon when they can’t even deliver them the dirt underneath their feet. So I really want you to know that going into this.

Much more reasonable goals are ones like this: you’re saying, “My starting goal is I want to make a hundred dollars a day. I want to get to the point that I’m making a hundred dollars a day. And I’m willing to work 5 hours a day for that.” If you’re only talking weekdays at 25 hours a week… if you’re talking weekends too, that’s 35 hours a week. Those are some really reasonable goals.

Working your way up to $500 per day – once you’ve hit that $100 a day, you’ve quit your job, and now you’re working full-time – $500 per day is not an unreasonable goal either. It’s totally achievable within this industry. It takes a lot of hard work – again – but it’s totally achievable.

Same thing with this one over here. Really reasonable goal: “I want to make a thousand dollars a month for starting and then grow from there.” “I want to make $5000 per month and I want to put in somewhere between 15 and 20 hours a week.” Those are totally reasonable goals. If you’re looking at those long-term over time, those are very, very achievable to hit.

So I want to share some examples. Obviously blocking out people’s identities because again, I know they have the best intentions. It’s not their fault that they’ve just been totally betrayed by the people that planted these seeds in their mind because again, if they could make that seed root and grow, they could sell you a product to fill that need.

But then it makes it harder for people that are actually legitimately trying to teach people how to make money online, right? Like, I’ve got no skin in this game. I’m giving you everything I know for free so there’s no reason for me to lie to you and tell you, “Hey it takes a lot of work when really there are these secrets out there where you could make a ton of money.” If they were there, I’d be using them myself and I’d be teaching them to all of my followers because it’s what would be best for them. It just doesn’t work that way.

So the first things first, internet marketing is really, really tough. Before I talk to you about… like I said, by the end of this video I will tell you the one way to guarantee your success in internet marketing. The only way… what did I phrase it? I can’t even remember how I phrased it. I can’t even remember what the title of this lesson is. But basically, the only way to success… the only way to guarantee your success. But internet marketing is really, really tough.

There is one common trait in every successful internet marketer I know. Whether it be someone that has been a follower of mine through my website over the years, or it’s someone that I have met that is tremendously more successful than me through conferences and by paying for training, and even my friends that I’ve met along the way that I have all over the world now that are successful internet marketers that make $5000, $10000, $20000, eighty to a $100000 per month.

All of them have this trait in common: they went in super determined, they went into it knowing like, “I’m going to find a way to make myself successful. I’m going to find a way to change my life. This internet marketing absolutely holds that promise.” And they latched on to that idea and they went in very determined. They understood that this was a non-linear journey.

Of course, what that means is a linear journey is just a straight line. As you learn more, as you work more, it kind of goes up and up and up. That is not a reasonable expectation for internet marketing.

Success in internet marketing is a non-linear journey. And it’s just like Google rankings are, right. You’ll see this kind of… you’ll get peaks and valleys. And over time, you kind of squiggle your way up to the top. But it’s not linear. It doesn’t go like this. Just remember that there are going to be peaks and valleys along the way. That’s very important to know going into this.

But the reason they ultimately succeeded – the reason anyone ultimately succeeds in this industry – is that they never gave up and they ultimately found success.

You cannot fail in internet marketing if you never stop making progress. If you keep going, keep trying, keep standing up and dusting yourself off after you make mistakes – because you are going to make mistakes – it’s going to happen.

So the purpose of this video and the rest of this section, we’re going to talk about goal setting and setting some reasonable expectations and stuff like that. And the rest of this section, they should be pretty short videos overall.

But what I want you to do right now… if you’re serious about this, if you want to change your life by owning a profitable internet business – because it is life changing, I can’t overemphasize that – you need to forge an iron mindset right now. You really need to grasp onto what I’m saying and just really reprogram your brain to expect exactly this and just know that: it’s going to be a long journey, you’re going to get overwhelmed, you’re going to make mistakes.

I can’t tell you how many mistakes I’ve… I still make a ton of mistakes when I’m launching projects. You learn from them, you move on. You get up, you dust yourself off, and you keep going. Everybody makes mistakes. A ton of them.

I can’t tell you how many times when I was starting that I just… I got three months into a niche website and I realized, “Man, this isn’t going to work,” or “I’m not really interested in this,” and I canned it. I did that so many times and I still do that to this day. I’m actually kind of bad. I know I have a lot of room to improve because a lot of times I launch new projects, give them 2 or 3 months, and I’m just like, “Meh.”

But the ones that I’ve seen a ton of success with are the ones that I stick with for 6, 8, 12+ months and see them all the way through. And we’ll talk about kind of expectations of how long this is going to take in the next video.

Just no matter what in your internet business, keep learning new skills, keep studying, keep self-developing, keep growing, and keep creating value in your niche.

I think one of the best ways I’ve ever heard this concept explained was: you can – a lot of the time, it doesn’t hold true always – but you can measure someone’s financial worth, what their net worth is, by how much value they’ve created in the world, how much value they’ve put into the world. And a lot of the time that holds really, really true – with some noteworthy exceptions. Don’t get me wrong but I think it’s a good general rule of thumb.

So if you keep learning, growing, and creating value… If you keep trying, if you never give up, you will succeed in this industry. As long as you never give up. As long as you’re working hard, you’re following the training – it’s going to happen for you. Latch on to that. It’s going to happen for you. You just have to keep working.

It may take 6 months, it may take 2 years… I’ve seen people that just stuck with it, stuck with it, stuck with it, and it took them 3 or 4 years. But they finally started making a full-time living through internet marketing.

It doesn’t always take that long. The training that I’m going to give you – everything again for free – is going to make sure that you have as high as a likelihood of success as possible. But just know that even if you have the crappiest training in the world, as long as you kept learning and you kept building on that, you kept trying new things, you just kept progressing, you kept attempting – you will succeed in this industry in the long run.

And I don’t mean to be totally “Rah! Rah!” because I’m really kind of against that stuff personally, but this is just fact. If you don’t give up, you will succeed at some point.

So I just wanted to share this really quickly. It’ll be worth every second.

I love travelling personally. That’s one of the reasons… I don’t have any kids yet… but another one of the reasons I wanted to start an internet business back when I was 16 years old was because I wanted a very specific lifestyle.

I wanted to work for myself. I didn’t want to answer to anyone else. I didn’t want to worry about calling in sick. I didn’t want to worry about if my dog was sick, I wanted to be able a day off work if I wanted to. Or if my dog died, I wanted to be able to take a day, or two, or three, or however many days off I wanted without answering to some boss or calling in, “Oh please could I have the day off, my dog died,” and then risking them not getting it and thinking that I’m being unreasonable.

That’s stupid. We live one life. We should be in control of it. We shouldn’t be at the mercy of these other people.

And I wanted to travel. And some day, I wanted to spend so much time with my kids as they’re growing up. That’s another reason that I really wanted an internet business that I could turn into passive income and just kind of watch my kids grow up.

So I want to share a few pictures of my wife and my travels over the years. Actually, as I talk about this, we just got back from Canada. And in a couple of weeks we’re planning to go see the full solar eclipse here in the United States. We live down in Texas – we have to drive all the way up to Nebraska to make it happen – but I’m able to pack my laptop up and go do that.

Next month, we’re going to Medellin, Colombia for a week. We’re going back to Europe for two weeks. We’re going to be in Munich for Oktoberfest. We’re going to see Vienna, which I’ve always wanted to see. And my business goes with me everywhere I go. And I can afford to – here and there – just take an hour, two hours to work that day and then the rest of the day I take off and my team members help me with the rest.

So it’s totally possible, it’s totally achievable, it’s totally worth it. I just wanted to kind of really end on a high note. Internet marketing changed my life. The reason that I’m giving all of this training away for free is so that you can use internet marketing to change your life because I felt like this was the best gift I had to give the world with this knowledge that I’ve developed over the years.

And so there we are in Munich; and bottom left hand corner riding bikes on the streets of Amsterdam; to the right of that where there’s that kind of shrine of human bones, kind of morbid to include, but in Kutna Hora which is in the Czech Republic; the Coliseum, of course; the garden in Salzburg from The Sound of Music; and over on the right there, we are in front of the Eiffel Tower – we were actually there celebrating Bastille Day in 2015 which was really, really cool.

So anyways, you can do this. It’s going to be hard. You’re going to feel overwhelmed and you can feel totally helpless at points. That’s okay. Just pick it up and keep moving. Keep making progress, dust yourself off, and eventually, you’ll be able to travel with your internet business, too.

So I hope this was helpful. I hope this reprogramming is starting to take root and that you’re ready for the journey ahead.

And so now we’re going to talk a little bit about some goal setting and making sure you can achieve those goals and how we kind of set the foundation going into beginning to build a profitable internet business. Alright? So best of luck!

  1. Great stuff so far! Love the pictures of your journeys, especially the one where you’re representing our Horns…Hook ‘Em baby!

  2. I have been trying to create a successful online ecommerce business since 8/2018 with Shopify. I have been very diligent and have gotten a few sales averaging about 1 per week. I know there must be a way to increase this but I am really now on my own and don’t know how to increase traffic to my site without spending alot of money.

    I too have a goal of $10,000 per month, but it seems that doing what I am currently doing will surely not get me there.

    I don’t really know how I found you but I am happy that I did. I am looking forward to doing whatever it takes and learn whatever I need to, to be successful with internet marketing.

    I feel now I am really beginning the journey

  3. Hi Ian,
    I’m only just finished with part one of section 2, but I am eager to go on watching everything else.
    I like your openness, and I love the idea of you giving away all this info for free.
    I have always wondered, and seen it very often on FB, in reactions to people trying to sell something, why do all these people that make tons of money (as they say) need to ask hundreds, or thousands for courses, or programs etc, to help us on our way to success.
    My goal is to make 3000€ (yes, I live in Europe) per month, and I would be ecstatic if I could make 5000€ a month. I do not need to get ‘rich’, I just want to be able to have a nice life, with no financial worries, and the ability to travel whenever I want, wherever I want to, work from home, decide when and how much I want to work … For the last 3 months, I have been working 10 (sometimes more) hours a day, to try and get something going here, and so far, I haven’t made a penny. I hope your course can help me get this first income, however small it is, as that is what I need to feel, that it is really possible, I still believe in it, but having worked on achieving this for all these hours for so many months, I can tell you, it’s hard to keep the faith !
    I have refused to pay the hundreds and thousands because as you start learning a few things, you also learn about the marketing strategies, and you see how they are trying to lure you in, just to sell their product (I also cannot afford it, I need to keep my savings to get me from A to B – B being making money online – so I have to be careful how I spend it, because any penny spent, shortens the time I have to go from A to B…)
    Honestly, I was skeptic about your ‘free’ course, and I still am a little, as you need to use ‘marketing’ also, to convince us of it, but I see you do the best you can to keep persuading us that there are no strings attached, that there is no hidden agenda, and that what we ‘eventually’ will need to pay is a small amount, and only if we really want to get deeper into it all. I know this is, of course, part of your way to make money also, but it is so much more an honest way, compared to so many people out there that are just preying upon us, innocent newbies.
    I hope one day, I will make the money I need and will be able to put some advice out there for newbies, for free, just as you do because I believe that is the only way. You need to make a living, and it is great if you make more than the average person, so you can do the extras that make life a pleasure, but there is no need to abuse the need of others for your own gain.
    Thank you for what you are doing here!
    OK… I’ll head back to the course.

  4. Hola Ian:

    Muchas gracias por el contenido, me ha parecido muy interesante y realista. De entrada nos aterrizas a esperar cifras reales y no soñar con cosas que no se lograran de manera exageradamente rápida. Considero que es bien recibido un contenido premium dado que también mereces recibir remuneración por tus conocimientos.

    Mil gracias.

  5. Hi Ian,

    I´m from Colombia and I really hope you were able to enjoy your time here in this beautiful country and specially in one of my favorite cities in this world: Medellín. I wanted to stop by and drop my big THANK YOU so much for your efforts by building this great training. A review for the Clickbank University got me here and to be honest I was thinking really hard if spending that money and then, I couldn´t believe that I found great quality material for free… something that I was trying to find but like some people may experienced, didn´t fulfilled the expectations. I´m definitely enjoying your course and I´m eager to keep learning not only from you but from other people. I can´t thank you enough for pulling this up and I look forward to complete it and share my success with this community as well.

    God bless you and keep the great work!

    Christian from Colombia.

  6. Worst “Sales Page” In the History of the Internet! link links us to a page that we pay for. what’s that about? is that an advanced level for internet marketing that is taught differently than what we learn here for free?

    • Yes.

      You’re welcome to stick strictly to FIMP, as it contains everything you need to build a business from the ground up to profitability, 100% free of charge.

      But unfortunately the project isn’t financially sustainable, so I can’t publicly offer up all of my advanced knowledge that I’ve literally spent six figures learning over the last decade.

      So IMP (the new expansion of FIMP) is now being offered for supplemental & advanced training to get results faster & make a hell of a lot more money over time.

      The original vision was to build FIMP & get enough community support through hosting commissions to keep adding to it and giving ALL training away for free. But unfortunately, with only 1 out of every 200 users of this training supporting the project (vs. the 1:10 to 1:15 I was hoping for originally), the add-on & advanced training will have to be a premium add-on.

  7. A very true video, true for anything really.
    I have recently had the opportunity to complete my animation degree, I got my butt kicked the first month and I had to build a mental mindset to make it happen and next 3 months I commit every second into it.

  8. You’re right, you do talk alot. In most cases you will give one or two points in a video worth paying heed (which could be done in less than a minute maybe two) and then you0 endlessly repeat yourself. Thanks for offering something that to this point has been free (though with proper motive you want us to buy through your affiliated link, fine). I will continue through till I can’t see it’s worth the time. (I am however running the past the obvious running of repeated and useless words.)

  9. Hi Ian, I just wanted to thank you real quick for creating this course.
    I have been thinking about a different way of life, full of freedom and me being able to call the shots, for quite a while now. I have read about and tried a bunch of products, feeling trapped, because they always wanted to upsell their stuff and never really delivered huge value beforehand… thus I never thought it was a good idea, but on the other hand I had no idea where to turn to in order to find what I have been looking for.
    Until now. I am in Section 2 and I am so grateful for finding your site. I love your approachability and they way you so honestly describe this industry. It feels right and I don’t feel like I am lied to, like with all those other products out there.
    I am looking forward to this journey, thank you again for doing this and wish you all the best!

    Cheers Heiko

    • You made it to the right place, Heiko! I sincerely hope it helps you create a successful journey ahead. Please share FIMP whenever you see the opportunities — I could really use some help getting the word out.
      Welcome to FIMP!

  10. Hi Ian, I’ve just joined today and am very impressed with your approach and honesty. I appreciate there’s a lot of work ahead and I’m trying to keep an realistic target moving forward. I think the toughest thing personally is to just take the plunge and feel confident in your business. Big respect for what you’re doing! Best regards.

  11. Thanks Ian, appreciate your very candid training session. Your site is a God sent! My question pertains to content writing that is posted; versus source posting. I am not a writer though several posting I have written but the majority are from publish books etc….

    • Hey, wscales! This is a very bad idea, at least in the way I’m understanding it based on your comment. It sounds like this is plagiarism or copyright infringement. And even if you are re-writing the sources for your articles, this is not a valid way to build an authority website that produces long term sustainable income.

      You definitely need to focus on creating unique, original content as taught here in the FIMP training. I hope that helps!

  12. Hi Ian
    I am really enjoying the videos they are bringing together all the parts that others have been teaching in one place. The buttons to save and continue are not working I can not see my progress. I want to thank you for your no nonsense straight forward approach to this subject it is refreshing and I look forward to learning more .

    • Hey, mtdirr! I’m glad to hear you’re enjoying the training so far.

      The only ways this could happen is if you have already clicked the buttons and registered these as completed (the buttons will no longer appear), or if you are not signed in, or you are cached in your browser as not signed in. But as long as you’re signed in to your account and you have not yet clicked the save and continue buttons, then everything should be working perfectly.

      There is a slight possibility that they are not clickable until you get to the end of the video, which I would check as a last-ditch effort. Hopefully, one of the two previous suggestions is what’s causing the issue and gets you fixed up.

  13. Ian,
    I like that you are not selling hype. It’s good that you are informing people that Internet marketing can be challenging but one must stick with it in order to achieve success. Good deal!!!!

  14. I’ve been doing this Internet Marketing stuff for 15 years, poorly and unsuccessfully, so I know more than most by now that it’s probably not a get rich quick scheme. As a Shiny Object buyer and user [95+% of them failed], I am an expert, probably like many here in FIMP 🙂 I have to say it’s so refreshing to hear what you have to say and teach, Ian. It’s real. It’s certainly been my experience and I’m delighted I came across you via your stoppingscams site. Looking forward to finakly not feeling so stoopid any more and getting on with earning a reasonable, regular income in this field. You’re an oasis, mate.

  15. Thank you so much for this Ian. It’s what I’ve been praying for. You explain things so eloquently. I LOVE the little details that you put in your video’s. You probably think of it as rambling, but it’s those little details that I glean from and receive hope and motivation from.

    Thank you for the examples of the time put into this business vs. monetary expectation! It will help me to continue moving forward when I am tempted to believe it not going to work!

    I appreciate you!

    • Thank you so much for the incredibly kind words, Marlena! I’m so glad to hear you’re finding the training useful. I hope FIMP helps you achieve everything you aim to achieve through this training. 🙂

  16. DUDE. How was Medellín? It’s on my list of top places to travel to within the coming years.

    Also, thank you putting all of this together! The degree of common sense you bring to this industry is highly refreshing.

    • Medellin was beautiful! It was everything we wanted it to be and more. It’s a shame it’s such an impoverished area because it’s such a beautiful place with so many great restaurants and such an enjoyable culture. We definitely enjoyed our time there and would like to see more of Colombia in the future.

      Don’t mention it. I’m glad you’re finding the training helpful. I hope it helps you on your journey.

      Best of luck!

  17. Completed 2.1

    Thank you for managing our expectations.
    Thank you for your honesty and overview on this business.
    Going thru your video, you have this special skill and compassion on how others feel – a lot of “soft landing’ while you could just forced your ideas thru but you did’nt

    God bless you and your family


  18. I have been burned so many times. With big cost involved. Everytime I lay out this money for nothing it took great energy to convince my other half.. This was it.. The break we need…. Just to be disappointed, angry and embarrassed to admit another F. Up
    I gave up for the last 6 months, but this internet marketing was in my mind all the time. Today I Googled again. In the hope… Then I stumbled on your page. Suddenly the vigor is back. I send out to message to my 6 people today. For this generous service I will definitely follow your lead. Buy all the programs you instruct through your affiliate link

  19. I just had to post a comment. I know I am at the very beginning of the training, but if what I have already viewed is an indicator of what is to come – I am very excited. I love how you are keeping it real.

    I don’t want to ramble, so I am just going to say Thank you!

  20. Wow! I ‘m really happy I stumbled on your site yesterday, I already feel like you are God sent. So I’m a newbie in IM (1mth) old, and I have spent the past one month going through different IM trainings. I totally agree with your submission; IM is only a “business ” on the Internet and it requires the hardwork and diligence that offline businesses put in to be successful . You just need to put in the hrs esp at the initial stage.
    Thank you for this!
    All the best

    • I’m happy you found your way here at FIMP, Woeagle5! I hope the training helps you achieve your goals. I look forward to seeing how you and your business grow over the coming weeks and months! Keep us posted! 😉

  21. I have tried before, Ian, but, being retired on social security with a wife and child, I didn’t have money to invest in SEO, and had try to drive traffic with free methods. After a few months I had to give up, not having the money to pay for my website. I haven’t seen your training yet. Only sections 1 and 2. But what I have seen so far is impressive. I especially liked what you said about get-rich-quick. I had already come to the same conclusion. I haven’t invested a lot of money in these schemes, but I have watched a lot of sales pitches, and I can get a good idea of how much they are going to charge by the amount of oversell they put in them. And when they tell me they have used the same system to make millions of dollars, I start wondering why they are wasting their time trying to talk me out of 47 or 97 dollars. So, I hope you have a lot to say about SEO, and I am planning to watch all the videos in succession. If you truly know whereof you speak, the order will be important, and I will assume you do know, until you prove me wrong… so don’t, please! I am beginning to get excited about this! I like your no-BS approach!

    • Hey, ozuell! It’s interesting that you say you didn’t have the money to invest in SEO previously, because honestly it’s one of the lowest cost traffic methods that anyone can build a business on – as you’ll find going through the training here at FIMP.

      I’m very confident you’re not going to be disappointed, and I’ not going to let you down as you continue going through the training. Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment here. I sincerely hope that the training shapes up to everything that you hope it will.

      Best of luck on the journey ahead!

  22. Man! This course is a godsend! I’ve wasted a lot of money on a lot of stuff and I was one of those people who got conned into get-rich-quick schemes and scammed a number of times! I promise to support your project through your linkis and share this to people who need it. God bless you!

    • Thanks you so much! Any sharing and support would be greatly appreciated. I hope this training and community helps you achieve what all of the other courses you’ve tried didn’t! 🙂

  23. Just wanted to drop a comment and say that so far, I’m really pleased with this training. I’ve been a part of a few different affiliate marketing training platforms and so far, this one is easier to follow and I get excited to move on to the next section. Thank you for putting this together.

  24. Fell for a scam last year, attended a 2.5 day workshop on Affiliate Marketing. They said it’s achievable to get a few thousand bucks the 1st month. Total BS! Been blogging since last May & all I’ve made has been a few hundred bucks here and there despite putting in 40 – 50 hours a week. I’m just praying to be able to make just 1K a month regularly, then scale up from there.

  25. I’m not afraid of hard work. I started working at the age of 8. I currently have a few months to allocate to building a business or or or finding another dead end job. I also live in Texas, Georgetown to be exact which is 26 miles north of Austin. Thanks for Lesson 2.

  26. Wow, would I like to earn $100 dollars per day, just worked that amount out in GBP using a live currency convertor, it amounts to £73.97, I’m telling you that isn’t bad at all, it’s more than some people make in a day by working themselves into the ground

  27. Hey believe me, Ian, the reason why I registered for FIMP is because I was looking for someone who tells it like it really is, I already knew it but people need to be told that “get rich quick” simply does not exist, shady IM sharks want people to believe it.

  28. I could relate to this video in many levels. One of the biggest lesson i learned in this IM is don’t exaggerate in being too over-optimistic :))) because i was one of those people who were over- the top positive that everybody has my best interest..OH God Once I Started to listen to you Ian You just tell it how it is TRUTH. God bless you! I truly believe if all these internet entrepreneurs listened to you, followed your guidance there will be more successful marketers then there is many who are failing now.
