That is a "loaded" question but I am going to do my best to answer it because I know how frustrating trying to make money online is.
First let me say that I am actually very experienced online and actually quite skilled at a lot of things that involve the Internet. My problem has been not really knowing how to put into use my skills and talents as I always seemed to fall short of my goal of making a living online. Now... I have not been earning enough to live on my income from the Internet, but enough to quit my part time job I had. My husbands income pays the majority of our bills. I'm nearing about $1,000 a month from the Internet. Not much, but it is a good start.
Now then... I tried MANY programs, but always got distracted by the constant influx of other programs being promoted. THIS IS THE PROBLEM and if you can STOP doing this, you will have a far greater chance of success.
Okay, so then I found Mark Ling. Mark gives you a step by step guide to setting up a system that will earn you about $50.00 per week on average per affiliate site. Once you set it up and it is making money, you move on and rinse and repeat. My first site is actually earn about $350.00 to $400.00 a month. I then started 5 more blogs using the same technique but my first goal was SEO. I need to work on the actual sales letters or reviews to motivate people to buy.re
Okay, now to answer your question.
I have gone beyond Marks program in SEO. Why?
Because to do all the things you need to do regarding driving traffic to your site using SEO will take FAR TOO MUCH TIME to do alone. So, I am using automated tools, and "systems" that Mark does not teach. In addition to these things, there will be experience you will gain as you go progress. These things will teach you what you can and cannot do, what you want to do, and what you want to outsource.
I have tried a variety of tools and programs to automate or shorten my SEO. My goal is to get to the point where all I have to do is the research and some of the things that require my personal attention. This is pretty much where I'm at now.
I spent almost $500.00 last month buying tools and short cut "ideas" and "training" to learn how to do SEO faster, better, more effectively. But I didn't pay for a different "way" to make money online.
This is the KEY. What you will learn with Mark's program is all you need to know to make money selling an affiliate program. What you can learn outside of this program is how to do your SEO faster and more powerfully.
I have personally trained (through use of private Youtube videos) people that work for $2.00/$3.00 per hour to do backlinking, bookmarking and linkwheel building for me. I also trained someone to set up blogs exactly the way I want them done and to write articles exactly the way I need them written and spun for some of the automated tools I use.
My monthly spending for the tools I use now is running me about $100.00 a month, but it took me a great deal of testing to find the right tools to do it.
Do NOT look for a different way to make money online. Find a really good niche. Pick "worthy" programs to promote and then work on your SEO. If you want to know more about what I'm personally using as far as tools, you can PM me.
Hope that helps. There are no shortcuts to making money online, but there are short cuts to the "time" you spend doing it.
Outsourcing and automated tools.
