Hey Y'all of the Forums, I'm xSoulbane, or Soul, a BHW "newbie" by profile. but I had an account before (made years ago) just never logged into it much ant thus I forgot the password.(Fail)Anyways... I'm going to be starting a hopefully long-term journey to make $100 a day--feel free to throw up now from hearing that clich. I know some of you gurus eat this type money for breakfast--and I have nothing but mad respect for that--but I think It's reasonable and challenging enough for me. Most importantly... I'm determined I want to thank you all for taking time to read my post--even if you skip the boring shiz. I Honestly Don't mean to drone on-- I just want to really acquaint myself with you all. Here's a little bit about me: I was always that odd kid out, who didn't know how to socialize w/ children my age... moved alot... many different schools... struggling parents..boo-hoo..whatever. But, as I grew older I learned how to talk to people..had some friends.. etc (I'm over it) I'm 17 years old male turning 18 in January---not particularly hyped up about being 18 soon. Attend University College studying Information Technology Reading/Writing is one of my pleasures--Math--not so much... lol Love art mostly all I do besides school....(Also in process of making a graphic novel--irrelevant crap I know) Not new to Internet Marketing...Surprise! Here's my history with Internet Marketing It all began when I was about 12-13y/o, and had a burning desire to make money. Not to spend it but to save just the idea of making money gave me such an ambition. I tried to talk to my class mates about it... lol but how many kids at that age wanted to talk about business? Not very many. I remember constantly asking my father to help me look for a job. He told me to wait and although i didn't want to...I did... I landed my first job when I was 14 years old... working in a mental health clinic..doing data-entry(not fun) the people were nice though :3 All in all--I realized I didn't want to work 9-5 all the time and especially not as an adult.. I saw all he restless adult working there already so... .... I started my "quest for success" three years ago...and boy did I learn alot since then. Initially I started, as i'm sure many of you did, by doing a Google search for: "How to get rich quick" (don't laugh..you know you did too at one point lol) long story short.. I ended up getting caught in many pyramid scheme programs... I wont name them out of disgust... lol but I wasted my hard earned money from my job and really believing in these programs... then I learned what pyramid schemes were.. and boy was I dis-heartened.I took a break for about a month and upgraded my search from "how to get rich quick"to"how to make money from home" (again... get your laughs out)This time however, I recognized the pattern of those shady... full of empty promises... sales pages... and i avoided them all.Here's some the things I did (many I forgot about): YouTube- I'll talk about this a bit later Online Surveys- (limited success making like $5 a month) Epower Network- (No success--no one wanted to hear a girly-sounding 14/yo boy cold-calling them) Many! other programs like Empower--same no success -Im telling you these kinds of things were ALL I spent my money on.. MCA(Motor Club of America)- Like so many others, the only sales I got were from cousins and friends.. was too scared to cold call people. Google Sniper-Did this with some success I made around 3 click bank sales in a month...for 3 months... but my site eventually go de-indexed by Google and later Yahoo. I know all of these programs had potential.. but I did so much research.--watched so many webinars (hours worth) basically became an experienced noob, if that makes any sense. Here's the deal with YouTube: so I have always had an account with YouTube. I made the typical kiddie video's...pranking people and Rick-Rolling them..all for views. That was back in '06... but many of you know that back then you had to be a YouTube partner to make money--that was my goal as well--as soon as I found out. I never became a partner...but I did stick w/ it untill a few years later I gained a couple thousand subscribers. To my delight YouTube was allowing video monetization for non-partners . Being a gamer that's what I've been primarily uploading... Gaming videos. For a span of about 3 months with monetization I gained $70... then I got slapped by Google. monetization was not able to work on my video's as the games were all copy written material. so I stopped earning money online for a year. I've since stop uploading videos from a combination of no motivation and school.---->thus my YouTube account stays frozen w/ 2000 Subs over 100,000 views. I never got that Adsense money... as you all may know the minimum payout for $USD (I'm in the USA) is $100 so the account is still there with exactly $78.. the $8 came from my monetized non gaming videos... that don't get half the traffic they once did. YouTube is a great way to make money... All you need Is a camera..a computer.. and a bright idea. I'll definitely try again in the future in a different niche... probably comedy. SS of my Adsense I didn't block anything out.. I got no shame lol Anyways... That's the bulk of the boring stuff Just a side note.. I was never able to get accepted to Machinima or any of the other Gaming Networks that give the YouTube gamers a monthly stipend for their channels since these network have the licence to display this copywritten materials to the public. I haven't (completely) given up on my quest since YouTube F*$#ed me over lol. After much studying the forums... Warrior Forum and (ops I said it) and BHW for other money making methods, I decided to of all the choices to do a blog, or many blogs, I started Bluematters 100 a day journey before I made this account.. Printed out the PDF that another user was kind enough to make... and studied it. Respect to Bluematter he really know his stuff ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Here is where my journey begins So since i'm a full time student, and this ain't an excuse, I don't really have time to create ALL of my content, although I would like to. So I have to outsource much of my work. I did't say It before, but I work a part time job as a Computer Lab Consultant at my college. It pays---pretty fair, but since I don't have much hours... I make an OK amount nothing to brag about. Needless to say the money I make, goes to school transportation, my parents (just being honest), and to my outsourcing endeavors. So I would love to do it all from scratch but unfortunately I don't have the time.
