    Day 1#1:
    Ayo, it's yo boy back at it again.

    901722.png

    ^added humour as it's my name also.

    Nothing like a day of dealing with the shitty general public and parents to get the fire in your belly started back up to make something of yourself.

    Currently: i work part time in a shit ass department store selling kids clothes(~€800 a month on average) , study marketing in college and enjoy going to the gym and making the occasional website for local businesses (along with managing online presence for said businesses) *no shameless links to my website*

    I know I'm good at all that, which is why I want to do it full time. To do that, I will need to quit my part time job (mentioned above). Some of you may be thinking that's the same guy from the dropshipping thread, you're right - it's me.
    My dropshipping journey fell flat on its face and be currently battling to get my Instagram account back.

    However I'm back though. Better than ever. More educated and more focused, and most importantly with a kick ass plan.

    At present I have nothing set up, besides a CPA account. But I know how that works now.

    I also have a 3 carefully selected domains from certain niches with low competition and high enough ticket items, which is always a help ;)

    THE AIM:
    - 3 PROFITABLE niche sites.
    - 8-10 Instagram accounts, making a couple bucks a day.

    I don't think this is the same colour font as before - FUCK MY LIFE.

    Anyway, that's my plan.

    There'll be mistakes made, that's a given. But that's why it's called a journey.

    Ill be starting off with my niche sites, hopefully getting the first one nearly finished tonight (8.12pm here now and on the way home from work).

    It's also exam season which doesn't help, but a few articles here and there won't kill me I'm sure.

    I won't be starting on Instagram accounts for a while, going to see how the whole ordeal with trying to get my other one reactivated goes. Hopefully all will be well as it will help me TREMENDOUSLY in my efforts.

    But yes, that's the plan anyway.

    Let's make some bacon.

    How dense will the content be on your niche sites? How many articles/words etc.
    Did you pick low competition niches or high competition/demand niches?

    Good luck. Following.

    That's me.

    Honestly, I'm not too sure yet. Been researching the shit out of what's the list effective and come back with a number of 13 articles, with a mix of things - product reviews for popular items, tutorials and list posts. I'll be learning throughout this aswell so I'll be able to see what works and what doesn't and amend my process for the next site.

    They're low enough completion - 10k searches for the general niche, and then the long tail keywords have even less than that.

    Day1#2:
    Right, so ive had a bit of interest in this thread through the DM feature, a fair few people reaching out to me about various things. No hassle answering questions but might be better to ask them here as apposed to through the DM, just a suggestion - i dont really care xo

    So basically I've done a slight 180 and decided that in this instance, ill start with instagram.

    Im researching how to run an instagram through Android with proxy etc, or if theres ways to access it all through PC etc. Alot of various solutions, ill make a decision about what way want to go about this tomorrow and get to it.

    Ill be playing it safe for now aswell, 1 proxy per account for now + more than likely a membership to MP (familiar with the layout etc).

    Have my niches and stuff ready and started gathering content already, thinking i might start with 5 accounts and get to a €4-5 euro a day before invest in anymore. I know might make more sense to invest in 10 accounts now and scale them all at once, but as the Irish say "be grand".

    Have my domains ready to go aswell, WP installed in them all and they are ready for action whenever im ready - realistically ill wait until my exams are over / nearly over, just because instagrams be easier to set up now and get going and then go balls to the wall on the sites.

    All shaping up nicely so far, now just time to take some action.

    Day 2#1:
    AYO IT'S YOUR BOI.

    I'm sorry I'll stop that now.

    Right so today will be setting up about 5 Instagram accounts and letting them start building some traction and all that jazz. Going to have a snoop around for a few aged accounts but if there's none appropriate for the niches I want its all good, I'll just start fresh.

    Ive had a recent situation with Instagram account before, lost a pretty big one (for my experience anyway) so I'll be playing this SUPER N00b mode.

    - Vps (looking into a free one)
    - Proxy per account (dedicated Instagram Virginia proxy or whatever the hell it's called is about €3 p/m - to be extra safe), might start using 2:1 for account : proxy but for now I'll be starting with 1:1. Don't want 5 months down the line to have grown this to a nice size and to get 2 accounts shut down because they're linked.
    - sim cards, going to have to look into someone sorting this for me, just for when phone verification becomes a thing.
    - emails, these are free obviously, just going to need a spreadsheet of all details so can put my hand on them easily if I need verification.

    Have my niches planned out in my head a bit of content ready for action, along with a few researched hashtags and stuff - but being honest I'd prefer if this was a set and forget type thing.

    Once I upload this reply I'm going to download the Vps and start getting sorted on that.

    There will be costs before profit in this instance, but it's okay I can live with that (takes money to make money).

    Once start monetising going to ask people to contact through Skype /Kik for advertising and stuff, just to be extra safe (and I have no idea how to access DMs through a Vps)

    To be honest I've had experience with Instagram before so I'm expecting good results, but all this vps and proxy carry on is completely new to me and I am LOVING learning all this new stuff. Once you get out of your comfort zone it's great because it's an opportunity to constantly expand your mind.

    Day2#2:
    Should be studying, this is a hell of a lot more interesting. Im going to get to it when this is done.

    Right so have a few expenses so far, all good though.
    EXPENSES:
    - VPS (free), using the AWS one.
    - 5 aged instagram accounts (€15)
    - 5 proxies (€6)
    - 6 months of MP (€85) , saved like 35% buying it all together, dont really mind. Got a free 15 day trial aswell.

    So basically, at the moment, im €106 down.
    My VPN is set up and ready for action, and waiting for my proxies and accounts to come in - hopefully by tonight.
    Then ill get into the warm up stage.

    Im going to keep an excel sheet of everything (followers, following, average likes etc) just so i can see the general growth on things. Ill share that like once weekly.

    Wont be updating this every day (thats a lie i probably might) but i've learnt from my previous journey that writing everyday when you have things to acheive is quite good to help keep the min focused as the concept of social proof helps keep me on track anyway.

    Im hoping these accounts are a set and forget type thing, will be looking to monetize after a period of 3-4 months. Honestly I have no clue ill see what the growth rate is like before make any decisions like that.

    Once I can get the accounts to making like €3-4 a day ill look to invest in more.
    I'm only a student myself so even this inital hit of 106 is hard on my pocket, bank and feelings.

    You know what they say though - takes money to make money.

    Time to go study managment strategy for an exam tomorrow! hahahfuckmylifehaha

    Some of us have the BHW white theme which for me is more relaxing for my eyes than black and yellow, the downfall is that you can barely read some colors.

    Lol ofcourse because you have the default theme.

    Most colors work just not the very light colors like white, light green stuff like that. But I will ask if they can write some kind of code so that color's convert with the white theme.

    It's cool, most people don't know about the white theme so can't blame anyone, I can only ask them to not use white :)
