    Hey guys,

    I've been lurking around BHW for about a year now (recently decided to make an account and become active) and I've attempted to absorb as much as possible. I've jumped from blogging, to PPD, to spamming, literally everything. However I always lacked that consistent dedicated attitude required to really see results with something. I have finally found a certain path I would like to take for the time being, and really stick to it.

    I would like to build a QUALITY email list of people in my niche and although provide them good informative emails, also make revenue from it. In addition to this, I would also like to venture into clickbank and be bringing in a consistent income from that too.

    One of my biggest problems was that I used to be a 'method hunter'. I would literally sit there and search for other peoples methods and replicate them. Since, I have learnt that to really make progression and succeed, you need to be original and provide your own twists on things. This is something I like to think I have done. I have a reach to thousands of untapped highly targeted people in my niche, who I believe I CAN get on that email list.

    As for clickbank, I'm currently unsure of a certain chosen method(s) however I'm definitely looking into PPV/PPC as I would like to have it automated to a certain extent. Also, I'm not the biggest fan of creating websites either. If anybody would like to share any advice or tips (especially for clickbank) then that'd be great.

    The reason behind this journey is simple, I crave my freedom. I don't really enjoy the feeling of suppression and blackmail of the system, and the thought of being financially secure and having the ability to be myself appeals to me.

    I hope everybody enjoys this journey, and that no matter what the outcome, we can all take something valuable away from it. It may get off to a slow start, maybe even months before I see that first $0.01 however I'm not giving up anymore. I'm going to stop being that 16 year old boy, and start being that 16 year old independent man who has a future to build.

    Current tasks:


    • Purchase a mailing management system (most likely Aweber)
    • Purchase a Domain & Email from GoDaddy
    • Create a free product related to my niche for my first Squeeze Page
    • Research into clickbank methods (especially PPV)
    • Continue to grow my audience via my secret twist

    Current earnings:

    Clickbank - $0.00
    Other - $0.00
    Total - $0.00

    Email list:

    Subscribers - 0

    Today, I'm going to begin creating (and hopefully complete) my first free product for my squeeze page. I sent out a short message to my secret audience and they responded fantastically! Without exaggerating, about 100 people instantly loved the idea and wanted this free product. The great thing is, these people are very highly targeted in my niche so from what I can see, getting these type of people on my list is going to be amazing. Another great thing is, my audience is constantly growing with this secret twist, so the potential size of my list is increasing all the time! My one concern is that even though these people are highly targeted, that doesn't always mean they're buyers. However, that's nothing a little clever marketing can't change :cool:

    Once I've created my free product, my next step is to get that squeeze page made. However, my budget is quite tight so if anybody has any cheap alternatives that'd be great. After all this boring stuff is out of the way, the fun begins and hopefully I can start seeing that list grow, and them dollars increase.

    I have researched different methods of monetisation, and one that does appeal to me besides the affiliate offers is a website with adsense. To reach my specific goals, I need this list to trust me, and I feel a good solid website/blog can prove that. I'm not the biggest fan of adsense so this isn't a definite, however it's still an option. Obviously, this is something for the future as I'm taking it all one step at a time. With the right hunger and determination, this venture WILL be a success. Nothing is stopping me achieving my dreams, nothing.

    One last thing guys, if anybody knows where I can make some quick startup money article writing that'd be a massive help. With the right finances, I can make this venture an even bigger success.


    Today's tasks:


    • Make my free product (including eBook cover)*
    • Look into cheap alternatives for creating a quality squeeze page*
    • continue to research methods of monetisation*
    • Sign up to Aweber (optional)

    clickbank - $0.00
    other - $0.00
    Total - $0.00
