    Hey, folks.

    Before I hit the bed for tonight I wanted to open my 2nd Journey.

    The first one was a total failure haha I tried the YT method being inpatient and doing almost anything (for like... 2 weeks), that's why things fail.

    [​IMG]
    I think one of the problems is that is hard for me to find motivation on some projects, and that I need to place some "unrealistic" goals to really feel that I need to do it. And to spice it a little bit more I need to feel that I'm losing something, the danger drives me. I work much better under pressure.

    Right now my life is pretty good: good job, good gf, plenty of money, etc.

    So why the hell will I put some effort in something new?

    Well... I have no idea.

    My plan:

    Ok, I'm going to be honest, my knowledge in IM is zero, so I don't have a plan hehe.

    I have been reading a lot and I'm going to try some stuff, test, repeat and scale thing that seem to work.

    At least I know what things I'm going to try :D :

    1. Build a IG Network: I have some projects running, some clients and I will build a network from zero to improve my current projects, my clients and my new projects. I'm also going to make some accounts to other Social Media platforms, but right now IG is the KING.

    2. POD: Using these S.M. Accounts just to improve other projects seems poor, productively speaking, so I will try some Print On Demand business with them as well. Not all of them but some. (Of course if one starts to ROCK I will put more effort and resources).

    3. Dropshipping Stores: Probably the thing I have more hope in. At the end is something similar to the POD stores I have in mind but less organic and more Paid Traffic.

    4. Cam Revshare: This is the only project which is going to envolved black hat, but hell... I think there's a giant potential in this business, that's why I'm going to try it as well.

    Methodology of work:

    I'm going to automate everything as much as possible and control the stats. If I see one of the projects doing super good, as much as 1M$, I may drop all the others, except if the one that does super good is the cam one, that's just to have some beer money, I don't want my business to be leaded by that.

    Goals:

    I'm setting goals to feel fear, as I said I'm driven by it. So I need to feel that I'm broke all the time. (don't tell my gf):

    3,000$/month income: I quit my job.
    5,000$/month income: Get an office and some employees.
    10,000$/month income: Buy a Bentley.

    After that I hope I'm getting more discipline, if not I will setup more STUPID goals.

    Starting Point:

    For now I'm starting with zero progress, this week I just got some things done and some STUPID monthly expenses (the fear thing). And tomorrow I will setup some more stupid monthly expenses and begin creating the accounts. I will tell you more tomorrow about the exact numbers.

    Hopefully this journey makes me more organized and hardworker. And you all can help me with some stuff on the way. BTW what email provider do you recommend for the S.M. accounts? The business ones are going to be from my own domain.

    I know it's EASY to trust on the success on this journey, but it's how I usually do things ;).

    Update #1

    There's different expenses, One time and Recurrent. For that reason I'm going to make a Total Expenses and another with Monthly Expenses. The second are the ones which are going to motivate me, because they are a pain in the ass and I better get them covered quick if I don't want to get the project closed.

    The past week I was making the Proxy Server, I freelanced the coding part and the expenses of that were:
    VPS (I bought the wrong one, no refund): 12€
    Freelancer: 67€
    70 IPs: 170€
    PCI (Public Cloud): 25€/month

    Today I got a Dedicated Server to run the Automation Tool:
    Dedicated Server: 70€/month
    Jarvee: 42€/month

    I have to add here:
    50 Proxies to BH: 35€/month
    5 IG accounts: 10€

    So...

    Monthly Expenses: 172€
    Total Expenses: 431€


    Priority, get 172€/month to cover the expenses.

    For today I'm going to Setup the DS and Jarvee, and test a bit to learn how it works. Hope is everything easy, as I say, zero knowledge.

    Thank you! Hope I don't disappoint you.

    The trouble begins. I thought the dedicated server will be like Amazon AWS, I just click Install Windows and that's all, but apparently no.

    I have to figure the way to setup Windows on the DS because I can't Install it automatically.

    Fucking beginnings...

    EDIT: Ok, I have to pay 25€/month to get the license of Windows lol. Problem solved.

    Haha thanks, mate. I hope the lack of knowledge can be diminished by the amount of investment. I don't want to expend more than 5,000$ but I think I have a problem short term in the monetization of the process. Hopefully with Dropshipping I can beat that.

    I have a suggestion for you, focus on one task. Don't start many projects if you're a beginner, it will only stress you out.
    If you have much money to spend I suggest to learn dropshipping/Amazon FBA and stick to it, IMO it's the fastest way to make money if you know how.
    Good luck :)

    So is really dropshipping the fastest way to earn any money? Spotify? or custom (self-hosted) stores?

    Thank you, guys! <3

    I know, I know that's the proper way, but just don't work for me. I can't just focus on one task, but my plan is to automate almost everything so just focus on the important tasks and leverage as soon as possible. And as I said on the OP that's my main goal, dropshipping, because I think is the more profitable way to expend my time and money.

    The IG network is to collaborate with my current business and with the dropshipping as well. The POD is to use the IG network more than just boost other pages. And Cam thing is just for curiosity, I'm planning on automate that hard, and probably I will drop it soon, because I don't have a clue on where to put the links on my strategy haha.

    I know you didn't ask me but anyway I think is the fastest and more profitable way if you have money to invest. With Shopify, not Spotify. If you know how to build a good looking page go with Woocommerce, if you don't go with shopify even if it's more expensive.

    Haha. I'm the head of production or production manager (don't know the job in english) of a company, so I just have hard work when things go wrong, but when everything is fine it's a good job.

    A side a have a few businesses, but as I said above I try to leverage everything as much as possible, and now if trying to reach the next level. Right now I'm developing an app (not me, I just put the $$) and trying this methods on my free time.

    Update #2

    Yesterday the Server provider had some problems with "something" so it took a few hours to get the dedicated server, but by night everything was setup. I install jarvee and import the proxies.

    Then I add one GOOD account to test, and everything was fine. Email verification but as usual.

    Then I import all the BAD accounts (girls and IG Followers) and they all hit email+phone verification. I bought some SIMs and the only girl account that don't have PV is the one that has her own number. The others are mixed with IG Followers accounts and I think that's the reason. So I'm just thinking about dropping them (I just made a few dollars trying with them) or change them to another niche account, because they are aged.

    Today I will import all the accounts and I will try to create a few more. Finally I think I'm going with Gmail for most of them and own domain for the more relevant. I just had better results creating accounts than buying them, but I will give another chance to bought accounts this week and I will buy a few for the Cam niche.

    And also I want to find the Dropshipping niche today, yesterday I try to figured out something, but nope. I want something that I can connect with all the accounts, so it's getting difficult.

    No more expenses and of course no income lol

    Update #3

    First problem!!!!!!1!oneone

    Being super innocent I log into Jarvee one of my business accounts. It got hit with the EV, so not big deal. But an hour later the Community Manager, who runs it, call me saying that someone from France logged into the account. I said I will handle it and fuck... the proxy is from Spain, I don't know why IG detected the IP of the Dedicated Server.

    I prefer not to risk this account so I deleted it and she can log in as usual.

    I also have 2 personal (1 professional, 1 personal) accounts on Jarvee and I'm wondering about taking them out as well.

    But as I planned the important accounts, the ones which a make real business with will be out of Jarvee when they hit about 20k followers. I don't want to risk them. So when that happen I will buy an iPhone for each account to run them separately. Well... maybe 2 or 3 per iPhone, I'm not a rich motherfucker.

    Account stats by niches:

    Professional: 5,412
    Personal: 4,065
    App: 452

    Cryptos (2): 773
    Food: 1,293
    Music: 14
    Travel: 54
    Fitness: 56
    News: 360
    Marketing: 70
    Motivation (2): 1,062

    *(x) number of accounts
    **Colours: Yellow=Monetized Green=Notmonetized Orange=Notmonetized through Social Media.

    I think I found my Niche for Dropshipping, I have to polish the idea, but I think it's pretty good. When I have some time I will explain a little bit how I got the idea and which things a look for when picking a niche.

    Today I'm going also to set the settings for the F/UF, I was thinking about waiting until tomorrow, just in case, but they are aged and manual created account so I think there's no problem beginning today. If I see some error I will stop the account for +24h.
