    Default My IM Comeback Journey to $100.00 a Day!!!

    Howdy Fellow Hatters of Blackness!

    Little Background: Found IM sometime in 2008 (including BHW) , started diggin' into it and got hooked with a serious passion. Took action in 2009 and tried every shiny object I found with visions of Grandeur and riches right around the corner. I even intend to show you some of the wake I left in my path on the internet as I still have all those sites out there trickling in cash. Not really worried about them as they aren't part of my new vision. Therefore, if you can learn anything from them, steal my content, or hack an account here or there. Welp, I'll get over it pretty quickly as I really don't care! K?

    Here we go:

    Article Marketing was all the rage and I quickly started studying Sean Mize who was the king of ezinearticles by leaps and bounds. Started building free web 2.0's using blogger, squidoo, and a few other free blogs. Became an expert author in no time publishing 2 to 5 articles per day under my pen name which was a smoking hot chic I made up. To this day, I think that fake profile photo I stole off of an adult site and cropped, gets more views than the articles, lol!

    Next, I ran into Travis Sago that was the creator of Bum marketing, tried his stuff, and he quickly led me to PotPieGirl. I quickly got a copy of her one week marketing program and that set me off on my squidoo rampage. Built about a 100 lenses and those are still out there pulling traffic and cash to this day.

    That somehow led me to the whole list building thing. I spent a couple weeks learning how to create an e-book, purchased a-weber, another week trying to figure out how to make a squeeze page, and another week trying to hook it all together. Got it live, and yes, you guessed it, couldn't get it ranked and a month later moved on. Still out there live though!

    Last, caught the rental site bug and built a few. Got them up and ranked pretty well, tried to rent them out, didn't follow through and that's when I threw my hands in the air and hung up my IM cape.

    Truth of the matter was I went so hard at it, I burned out. It's taken me almost a year of sitting in the wings (but still studying) to decide to have another go! Biggest reason is if I showed you all of the sites I have commissions sitting in that I never met thresh holds to cash out, (to the tune of thousands of dollars) it would make you sick! I still am!

    Moving Forward: My strategy will be MNS sites promoting amazon, clickbank, and CPA offers. After getting the sites up and running, I'm toying with the idea of trying to capture emails on these sites for list-building and email marketing.

    I will be using the profits instruments course (its here if you want it) as the foundation of my build-out on the sites. I'm using that program because it's a complete and replicatable system. I sincerely think that's what is missing when most newbies get started. A system versus a hair-brained idea. I'm not sure that I will use that courses keyword research strategy though.

    As of today, I have spent the last week finding all of my old logins for sites, accounts, etc. Downloaded the profit instruments course, reviewed it again, and I feel as if I am ready to get the ball rolling.

    So, that was a ton and I apologize but want you to know that I have 0 web skills and I'm flying by the seat of my pants just like a lot of you. I will be learning everything as I go as I have forgotten all of my actual web-building skills and how to do just about everything.

    So, I'm off to do my first keyword research and get the ball rolling! Wish me luck!

    Tried to share some of my sites in the post but apparently I'm not able to. Said I wasn't allowed to post them. Still willing to share them if you want to see any of the strategies I used. Just let me know and I'll figure out how to get them to you.

    Best of luck with your site man, tbh
    while I am personally no expert in
    this have you thought of doing an
    authority site rather than MNS because
    people in the MNS seem to have gotten
    hit pretty hard last year.

    Good luck,

    I havn't done much of anything recently. However, I have a lot of earners there and still make nice money on a bunch of lenses. Basically, before the big g updates I already had a bunch of number 1 ranked sites and they all maintained their rankings, even to this day. I'm pretty skilled on that platfrom though if I can help or anything.

    I have read some posts around the net regarding this. I'm a little nervous but still willing to give it a go to see what I can make happen. I am prepared to shift to authority if needed and do have that contingency plan in place. I'm only gonna bring up a few sites for now to get started and see what type of obstacles I run into. I am still seeing a lot of people making progress in MNS.

    Hi Hammed,

    I wish you luck with your MNS sites / list building! You've already got the IM experience needed to realize what's possible, now all you have to do is step it up and work hard
    You'll get your goal in no time.

    Best of Luck,
    - Metra

    Thanks for all of the kind words everyone!

    Quick Update - Finished keyword research and found my starting domain!
    Purchased domain and working on a WP install now!

    Side note: I was right.. don't think the keyword research from the course I'm using is gonna do it. Took way to long to find a winning keyword string and way to much work. Gonna research some of the keyword strategies here and see if I can find something new.

    Let the first site build out begin!

    Excuse me if this I'm over-stepping my boundaries in asking this (I'm quite new to this, so I don't know the etiquette yet) - what exactly does your keyword research comprise of? Are you using a certain program for this, or is it all manual searching?
    I, too, would like to see some of your sites to learn from, if that's ok with you.
    Thanks,
    Art

    Hi Art! I was following the keyword research method the course I'm using for this recommends. However, the course is still applicable but a few years old. So, I think everything is fine with it, but the keyword research piece is very outdated. I have seen way more automated, and sophisticated methods here on bhw that I'm probably going to adopt instead.

    Following with interest Hammed, you seem to be in near enough the same position I am in regards to coming back into IM after having substantial time out with similar ideas on where to restart!

    Best of luck to you.

    k, ran into some snags with the course i'm using. Two of the plugins for WP are no longer available. Therefore, thought I would reach out for some help here. The two I can't locate are

    Easy Privacy Policy and WP-Spam Free ... anyone have any replacement and configs for substitutes? I'm gonna go do some research here on BHW and see what I can turn up. Thanks!
