    Hey fellow BHW'ers.

    I'm 14 years old and I'm from the UK, determined to make this $1500. Ideally, I would like to make this $1500 but if I could make this on a monthly basis and maybe even get more, that would be great. I'm not so experienced, I pulled in around £300 from adsense a few months ago and got banned for some unknown reason. I read for hours on end on blackhatworld. Taking action is required to make money, and I am going to take action. I've been quite lazy recently.

    I will be using this thread in an attempt to help others, and 'force' myself to take action.

    I'm going to use a method very similar to smalboy's method ( I recommend taking a look at smalboy's thread here:
    /blackhat-seo/my-journey-discussions/478744-journey-3k-end-sept-2012-will-succeed.html - its on BHW but I can't post links :( )

    Advertising odesk on various websites. I believe this can rake in $1500, hard work required however. You get $50 from odesk upon conversion. You get payed out every 20th of the month, on a minimum of $50 through electronic bank transfer. The conversions are dealt with through commision junction. $50 isn't an amazing amount of money, but I believe these methods to get traffic are easily upscalable. I require 30 conversions to get my goal of $1500. My determination is high, I believe I will succeed.

    Seeing as payout day is the 20th of October, and I'm writing this thread on the 6th - I'd like to have a small target of $300 by the 20th. Then the rest ($1200) will hopefully be achieved.

    TRAFFIC


    My plan is to advertise on gumtree. I live in London, there are 7 million people who live in London. The reason why I believe this could be upscalable, is because smalboy advertised on gumtree in the singapore gumtree. 5 million people live in singapore, and if I post in London's gumtree 20+ time's a day, and some other big city's in the UK like Birmingham. Cash will hopefully roll in. It may even come to the point that I pay someone to post the ads for me, but this will be later.

    Also, like smalboy's method - I'm getting conversions from local people/friends too. If I could get 10 people local to convert, thats $500 and a third of my target done. The rest can be done via the internet.

    I believe this will work, follow this thread if you wish. I'm guessing there is a lot of fellow 14 year olds on the forums, like me, looking to make money. A lot of you will say get outside, enjoy your teenage years, I can balance it out. I will now be trying to make money instead of playing video games. The ultimate goal is $1500, but $1000 will suffice.

    Big thanks to smalboy for helping me and for his methods.

    Thanks for reading.

    P.S. I'm looking into fiverr re-selling, but at the moment this will do fine.

    When you say failed, you mean they have failed to make money. Even if I make some money that will be a success.

    To promote odesk you need to be a part of commision junction, I am, and it's called simply faking your age. Just say you were born in an earlier date. They don't ask for photo ID.

    Good luck with your journeys, I'll follow to this thread and see if you can reach it :D

    Well when I was 12 I started doing offers on websites, made a small $3 a day. It all added up though. I got around $80 a month. That was a lot for me, then I stopped doing that because I realised I could earn more with adsense, on adsense I earned anywhere between $160 - $300 a month. This was fine for me, but I got banned for ;invalid click activity', I'm still unsure why though. This is why I'm here to make even more money.

    I've started looking at logo gigs on craigslist (fiverr resell), very saturated method but we'll see if we can make any money, sent a few e-mails out already.

    Also put up an ad for GUMTREE AUSTRALIA, see how many replies we get there.

    Even if I get 2 or 3 replies per ad it'll do. 1 of them are bound to give me a conversion.

    It's failing.

    zero made so far.

    Well, get people. I put up ads and get atleast 30 replys. i say first step is to visit this link (my link) and signup as an employer, hardly anyone replies after that. help will be appreciated. this is ofcourse after they say there interested.

    There are other Job areas that don't cost anything to post in, think of counties around London.

    Good luck.
