    I think it's about time I made my "journey thread" if not purely for the motivation it gives.

    [​IMG]
    Most journey threads I see on BHW usually are "Journey to make x/day" and to be quite frank, I think they're horrible. If I've learned anything during my time doing IM, income comes and goes - you could be making a constant $100 + for one moment then have it all crashing down the next. Also, there never seems to be any closure to those threads and they usually just die off.

    Instead I've decided to set a concrete goal and a specific time limit to reach the goal. In 30 days you will clearly be able to see whether I reached it, fell short or maybe even blew past it. In my opinion, that makes for a more exciting journey as it also puts the pressure on me to actually achieve it.

    [​IMG]
    My name is Nathan, I'm 20 years old have been doing IM (read: browsing BHW and occasionally trying out the odd method) for about a year and a half. I've had some success here and there but I've ultimately made a small loss, though that's mainly due to buying tons of programs, "WSOs", memberships etc. I can only blame myself for not having succeeded already, I've not been working nearly as hard as I should be, to be quite frank I'm just one lazy sob. This is why I'm making this thread to force myself into a strong work ethic and follow my dream.

    [​IMG]
    Right now, I have several methods I wish to use in order to reach my goal and they are:

    Website 1: This is a website based around getting a user to purchase a certain program via my affiliate link. I can't really mention what the program Is otherwise it'd be incredibly easy to work out my site. Not only that but I have other banners and stuff advertising relevant content that hopefully converts.

    Website 2: An old "micro niche site" in the self-help niche I made awhile back. After the EMD update last year it dropped off from position #1 for most keywords but it's still ranking and I still get some Adsense cash from it. I'm looking to get this site back in first place.

    Website 3: A more authority style site that I'm looking into starting. I'm a mod in quite a popular forum that's in the same niche so I'm going to try and promote it as much as possible on there.

    Media Buying: As seen in this thread. This may come later on in the journey but I'm looking to do some media buys using Sitescout. I already have an angle and banners etc. set up but I'm not going to take the plunge and deposit $500 just yet.

    Optional Youtube/Clickbank: As seen in this thread. Might try ranking some videos on Youtube that promote a specific product. Thought of a few niches already but I'm not entirely sure on this one yet and I know it's not good to be doing too many methods at the same time

    Secret Method: I can't really say much about this method otherwise it'd give away exactly what I'm doing. I'll say this though, it's in the "adult" niche and I'm monetizing through CrakRevenue. Also this will help with short term motivation which for me is very important as I tend to lose morale really quickly when things aren't going right.

    And I'd like to add that I'll probably be dropping and adding new methods as the days go on so everything isn't set in stone with regards to what I'm going to do.

    DAY 1:

    Today's Spend: $0
    Today's Earnings:
    $6.25
    (still early days, it's likely to rise)
    Profit/Loss: +$6.25
    Amount from Goal: $1493.75

    Best of Luck Snivy!
    Doesn't matter you achieve the target or not, but I am sure that this time you'll learn solid lesson. Its obvious from the enthusiasm and motivation that you have shown in your post.

    Good luck bud! ;)

    Awesome man good luck i'm the same age as you and I know what it's like to be lazy as hell, but just think of all the success we could have because we started this as young as we have.

    (Nothing on those 14/15 year olds on here but still pretty good!) Also and this is kind of a side tangent, is your username based off of that grass pokemon?.......nevermind you profile pic was my answer. I loved pokemon growing up but i couldnt deal with the newest one. Pikachu should count as a legendary pokemon by now with how strong he is and ash is hella experienced but every freaking season they make them both weak as hell and let them get beat by newbie trainers like trip. I watched a few black and white episodes with my little cousin and said to hell with it.

    Thank you and yes I believe whatever happens I'm going to learn a lot about myself from this journey even if I end up falling way short of the goal.

    I know right! Some of these kids on here are insane. I really wish I started that early - well in actuality, my first encounter with IM (even though I knew nothing about it) was with an Anthony Morrison Clickbank product when I was 16. I think it was called Tycoon Cashflow or something, anyway not sure where I stumbled upon it but some affiliate probably got paid. That didn't go anywhere and it's not until 3 years later that I found this forum and really began trying to make this work.

    My first exposure to IM was when I was 18 from a friend of mine. Back then sites we'rent getting slaughtered as much as they do now, and I was able to create some pretty decent sites that made ok amazon and adsense earnings. I think I've made a lil over $2800 in my entire IM career but nothing stable or consistent yet and those sites with the exception of one are long gone. I actually want to use IM for startup money so I can focus on a few offline business ideas I want to set up.

    Wish you the best, mate. Please take something into consideration: don't over do. Meaning that if you are with a lot in your hands, you wont be able to focus on one or two methods properly :)

    Good luck.

    Wow you've made more than me. I want to eventually invest in stocks so I'm simultaneously learning about trading. Also thinking about investing in property but of course this is still a long way off. Just something I'm thinking about.

    Thank you. Yeah that's what I'm worried about, and it's partly while I've failed so far.

    Thanks man!

    Also just got another conversion.

    +$2.50

    your story pretty much sums up mine mate , i used to make arround 2k a month with adsense 3 years ago or so , and now i'm making even less , why ? because i'm too lazy to do what i should do to make more profit , and don't worry there are tons of people out there who can make money but just can't take action yet , lately i've been trying to make a change and get myself to work a bit more seriously , i hope you succeed with your journey and i will be folowing :)

    Congrats on starting the journey thread. Sometimes that is exactly what one needs to really gauge how he/she is doing and to give motivation to continue. It is very helpful to see what you have done each day help feel "successful" on the days that you don't profit.

    Are the current profits coming from the old niche adsense site, or the product affiliate conversions?

    Thank you man!

    Sure hope it does. I am probably the laziest guy you'd ever meet. So lazy infact that this journey thread has been like 4 months in the making. I had the draft just sitting there but I'd always procrastinate on posting it. Coming up with reasons not to.

    Same here man thanks!

    Yay more followers!

    Yeah starting this journey thread is probably the best thing I've done since being here. I can already feel the pressure to succeed!

    You bring up a great question about the current profits actually because I don't actually know. I'm promoting the same offer in two different places, one is on the website centered around a product affiliate. And the other place is part of the secret method. I completely forgot to put tracking on either link, so right now I don't know. I'm going to go do that now.

    Having said that it's probably not the website though because it's ranked 7th right now for the main keyword and is not ranking for anything else (yet!)

    Update:

    Okay I think I messed up a bit by starting this thread so late (7:51pm GMT) and also posting Day 1 earnings when the day wasn't even finished yet. From now I'll do my "summary for the day" at around 12am and anything I earn after that time will just be added to the following day.

    What did I do today? Just built backlinks for site 1 and kept on working on the secret method. I'm really sorry I can't explain more about what exactly it is but I promise once I no longer use it I'll make a guide on how to do it. Also brainstormed a couple more niches/keywords for the Clickbank video project thingie. Still unsure on whether to pursue it. I honestly don't know how I'm going to make these videos, it's not exactly my strong area. I did sign up to Animoto today but I'm not even sure if I want to use it.

    Sex sells. Period. You've probably heard that phrase a lot but it's true. There will always be tons of horny guys looking to get off, you just have to find a way to get them to your affiliate link and sign up. I really recommend CrakRevenue's Exposedwebcams offer. The offer is basically a really nice landing page which takes them to the actual page where they can sign up. It's an adult webcam site. Try visiting http://www.exposedwebcams.com (no aff link) to see what it looks like

    DAY 1:

    Today's Spend: $0

    Today's Earnings:

    Adsense: $0

    Clickbank: $0

    Crakrevenue: $18.75

    Total:
    $18.75

    Profit/Loss: +$18.75

    Amount away from goal: $1481.25

    [​IMG]

    P.S. Still deciding on a layout for these updates and revenue posts. I'll probably be playing around with it until I'm happy. :/

    P.P.S Also I know these aren't the most helpful posts right now but I promise that will change
