Forum Success – People Making Money

It seems creating the forum was one of the best things I ever done as far as trying to help people make money online. When I first started this blog, I just started talking. I didnt really have any direction. I can honestly say that I do now. It’s comments like these from the discussion forum that make all the time put into the blog and forum worth it.

From Forum Member JerkJr: I think I would say I hit my pot o’ gold.

I’ve been trying my hand at PPC to CPA

I found a CPA offer that is converting 25%-30% for a few days now.

Yesterday I had 253 clicks, 70 conversions, cost me around $65 to advertise, and I made around $135. This isn’t uncommon for this offer either.  The day before yesterday was about the same thing. 

Here’s what I have learned…PUMP THOSE OFFERS OUT.

The more you get the better chance you have of hitting one that will stick really well.

Thank you Ruck for your posts and your help on everything.

I’m off to go make more landing pages and campaigns


From Forum Member experience:Ok maybe its a little too early to get happy. But today is my first 100.00 profit day. And its just noon where i live. I have been on this forum for less 2 than 2 weeks and i was on the ppcformula forum before that. I was ready to just give up and quit and go try to get my job back.LOL. But i stuck it out and i took alot of advice and read Rucks blogs. Well the stuff that hes giving there is great people and if your a newbie like me that you have to pay close attention to it and follow his steps. But i just want to thank Ruck and all the other guys that helped me out the past couple of weeks.



From Forum Member MasterOfNone: So, I recently received my first check from NeverBlue, for $163.  Its amazing to actually hold the check, and think that I made that money purely using my own skills and knowledge (aided greatly by sites such as this.)  It’s really motivating, and I’m already on my way up, with my next check being over $500!  I’m in college now, and if I can somehow be making $100/day when I graduate a little over a year from now, I’m going to try to stick with this full time instead of getting a normal job.  We’ll see what happens, but I’m pretty optimistic with the way my skills are growing.


From Forum Member Yebot: Guess what came in the mail today …… my first check from an Ad network (pepperjam). SWEET!

$299 is small potatoes, but dammit, these are MY POTATOES and they are delicious.

I have a huge pile of thanks for Ruckles and gokarter and the many others on (and off) this forum who’ve thrown me the nuggets of information that have gotten me off my lazy ass and onto the fast track to building my online business.

Thank you thank you thank you. Someday I will have something to give back to you all …

This noob (me) is looking forward to the day when he can fire his boss and forge ahead with IM full-time — bringing in way more income than he could working for someone else.

Love, Peace and Chicken Grease,


From Forum Member GoKarter: After having my BANS site up for just over a week now, I have gotten my First E-bay commission sale of a whole $2.31. LMAO
 I’m so excited. It’s a start , we all started somewhere . If I play my cards right the Niche that I’m in I should make a killing at.

But first I need to learn and play the game at the same time.


From Forum Member liquidgatorade: Over all I have to say February was a good month for me.

I raked in 1400 bucks with a new method I devised using craigslist and one of my pages achieved a rank 1 with google.



From Forum Member Poker_Fool: Nothing major, but I used offline ads for the 1st time after reading rucks advice.  I never even thought to use offline means as a way to get traffic to an offer.  I bought an ad for $30 and the 1st day the revenue coming in paid off the ad, plus got me $65 profit.  The ad is still going run for 4 more days.

No clue if the ad will continue to produce over the next few days but just wanted to share this to motivate others to be creative and try the things ruck talks about.

I didnt post this to brag. Heck, we leave that up to the forum members :). There are just so many make money blogs out there these days so I thought it would be nice to create a community around this one. It’s a great way to communicate outside the general blog commenting area too. It doesn’t matter how much you blog, there are always unasked questions to be answered or more ideas to be explored. I’m happy that we can do just that in the forum. I did not put up all the success stories so there are more to read!

Another thing is that I have had the pleasure of being sent 3 products created by forum members. I can see that some members are leaning towards being a product and/or software owner. This is great and huge successes all around there as well. Sorry guys I have not tested them yet! I will though! Anyway if you have not joined the forum yet, you really should. I just showed you that there are people in there making money online everyday. There are a variety of topics to talk about and being talked about already however any/all suggestions are always welcome.

 Congratualtions to everyone mentioned and not mentioned on your success!

I think many of us owe a LOT to you Ruck.

Was I making a little bit of money BEFORE I found your blog/forum?


Did I have a clear view, a reproducable process to follow, and a vision of whats really possible?

Absolutely not.

So thanks Ruck!

April 2, 2008

Nah, nobody owes me anything. I enjoy the environment and opportunity to run my own community. Less bullshit to deal with and everyone gets along :)

April 2, 2008

Ruck you’re way off the mark with that last comment.
Even though you enjoy it, you are providing an invaluable service to many many people.
I don’t just say this to kiss ass, there is so much shit around and “Gurus” selling dreams that give just enough information to make you want to do it (but not enough to actually do it without buying another stupid ebook)
So keep up the good work mate.

April 2, 2008

Will do John :), thanks for the support!

April 2, 2008

Wow ruck put my post on his blog i feel like an internet super star. LOL. Just kidding but really thank you ruck. Some of the stuff that you are saying should be sold and its not. Even though alot of it is said from others you put the stuff out there to where we understand it. I just want to let you know that I am still rocking with that campaign i made 113 first day 150 second and today about 70 so far. For all you newbies out there like me just dont give up if you read try to learn and you have a desire to make money than there is no limits to what you can do online. Just stay focused and dont give up.

April 2, 2008

Thanks Ruck for the little plug.
If it wasn’t for you Pal I wouldn’t be where I’m at today .I would a given up long ago.You alway gave me the vote of confidence I needed to keep plugging away and if I veered of course you always put me back on track.
We all own ya man… whether or not that you agree with us.

April 3, 2008

Well thanks for the great post and reminder about your forum Ruck. I joined and then did something else only to forget to return.

Well I have your forum bookmarked now.

There is some awesome info in there and I have been missing it all. I guess I will be floating around in there for the next few hours to catch up.

April 3, 2008

Congrats to everyone! Let’s keep at it and keep posting our results on the forum – not to brag, but to encourage those who haven’t made any money yet.

@Ruck: I second John’s comments re: what you’re doing here. You provide us with so many different ways to make bank and you’ve created this community where we can exchange ideas/knowledge. I really appreciate it, man. You rock :-)

Xerox Xray above. Great people, great place. All starts from the lead dog.

I just finished copying and pasting your entire CPA marketing series (thus far) into word. It’s 46 pages of the most valuable aff marketing (beyond e-book) material that I’ve ever come across.

You have some energy. What with your personal and family goals and obligations.

Can’t wait to re-read and put it into practice. That’s the best way to show our gratitude. Thanks


April 7, 2008

It’s great that you’ve helped so many people. :]
That must feel wonderful.

April 7, 2008

WOW this is really awesome, congrats to you all.

April 8, 2008

inspiring stories, just want to hit something also.

April 20, 2008

awesome! this is just great. i luv when i see that people are making money. and just think, Ruck didnt sell us a freakin 19.99 ebook to learn this stuff either. Top notch man!

well, ive been locked away for a month and a half and now i can get to a computer again. i only have sundays now to build my internet empire but it will be about 6-7 hours of straight Cash Tactics for me.

I already know im gonna be sending u a success story really soon Ruck.

April 29, 2008

Always great to see the success of others. Makes you want to work harder and in effect will increase your own chances of success. Nicely put.

I started this discussion to evaluate public available web proxies:

Which are really anonymous?

Which can unblock facebook, myspace etc, in other words: are fresh ?

Which would you recommend?

Thanks for your help,

P.S.: In my land, the freedom of speech is somehow limited, please give me a hint, if you have doubts about your recommendation.

November 25, 2008

I intend to create a forum like yours but not sure I can manage it or not :)

January 2, 2009

Ask mr google, use keywords free proxy
I think it’s so hard to manage a forum :D

Hi, Just found your blog through search! Awesome post, I am also embarking on a new online adventure, the best of luck in the new year, you’re an inspiration!

June 16, 2010

Came across this site by accident and I’m glad I did. Reading all the posts on this page is so inspiring I wish I stumbled across it earlier.

I’ve been trying different techniques from various online marketers and it is overwhelming for somebody new in this. It’s nice to see sites like these point these people in the right direction.
