    My title wasn't so original...but it got the point across. I have about a year copywriting. I have about 2 years doing Internet Marketing (SEO sites, article writing, email marketing, ppc)

    So I'm sort of experienced.

    I've been making money on and off, and I know a couple of ways to get that quick cash to pay my bills. To be honest, I'm quite tired of all the hustling.

    So, I want passive, and stable income.

    What am I going to do?

    I'm going to start making money from the most basic things online (fiverr, facebook, tumblr, etc.) I'm also going to do some freelancing to get cash faster.

    Then once I get about $1,000/month with these methods, I'm going into Affiliate Marketing/CPA and driving traffic via Facebook PPC. I have a couple of months experience with Facebook PPC (All I need is some cash)

    Well, in exactly 5 months, I will be making 5,000/month. Let's go.

    PS: All my updates will be in big yellow letters like :

    Total For This Month: $0


    Wish me luck guys. I'll update you daily, answer questions, etc. Just don't PM me please. Thanks.

    So I began planning out my month today, and decided on the best way to get a quick $500 in a matter of weeks. I'm going to do some freelance writing/ Then once I get about $100 I'll launch a WSO.

    I have about $20 in the bank to spend, and I'm almost done with the sales page for my freelance writing. That should get me my first $100 in less than a week. Will keep you guys updated daily.

    Total For This Month: $0

    Yes, it's still $0. lol.

    Finished writing my sales letter for my article writing gig, and I managed to find an untapped traffic source. So I'm going to start selling website traffic on fiverr.

    Total For This Month: $0

    Tomorrow should be a big earner, so I'm pretty excited about it.

    It definitely was a big earner :) Woke up this morning and made a few sales. Posting my sales letter for my article writing after I'm done with laundry, and still trying to figure out how to get some buyers for traffic.

    Total For This Month: $50

    Pretty excited. :D

    Dude, isn't $5,000 an unrealistic goal? You should start with maybe $250.

    I don't know where you live, but $250 won't last me one day in NYC, and plus, I'm no noob when it comes to IM, so $5,000 in 5 months is a very reasonable amount.

    Update
    Very productive day today. Managed to select an offer to promote on facebook, and I purchased a $50 facebook voucher off fiverr. Got a client that wants a review article, so if I give him my best work, he might be long term. Set up a quick, and dirty CPA method, that I'll be testing for the next two weeks--it's about 80% automated, but it's a typ eof set and forget thing. Will update on its progress. I'm still trying to figure out ways to sell my traffic. Posted a fiverr gig, but no sales, for now.

    To Do List:
    * Set up the Facebook Ad campaign. I still have to make a couple landing pages, write the ad copies, get ad creatives, and set up tracking.
    * Start making $20/day with my article writing gig. It will only take me 4/articles daily. Still looking for other ways to get new clients.
    * Figure out how to sell my Facebook traffic. I was checking out Lieth's fiverr reselling thing, and I think I might do something like that. Except build an entire SEO package, and add in the traffic as an upsell. Then I could use PPC to drive some traffic.
    * Work on the CPA method. It's my first night running it, and I can't wait till I see tomorrow's results. Going to be GREAT! Since it's already automated, as long as it's bringing me in profit, it should be easy to scale.

    Total For This Month: $18

    I spent some cash to buy the facebook voucher, advertising for my article writing, and a membership for ppc tools/tracking. So far I'm still in the green, so that's good. By next week, i should be at least making $40/day which is sooner than expected. :D

    Honestly, Why would $250 not last you one day in NYC? I know its not the cheapest place
    to live. But still that is a little excessive for daily pay out.

    Very productive day today. Got the article done. Set up the campaign and l'll continue to work on that for the next two weeks optimizing, and testing out different angles.

    CPA method didn't show any results today, but I'm still working on different twists and ways to get some traffic.

    Facebook PPC
    So, all my Facebook ads got denied. Figured it would've happened, but it forced me to rethink my entire campaign. Before I was direct linking some $1 submits. Now that's not a bad idea for some short term cash, but I figured that if I want to make 5,000/month faster I should go with a more stable campaign. Therefore, I switched over my niche, and came up with some landing page ideas. I'll probably launch one tonight, and I'll update you guys on the results tomorrow.

    CPA Method
    Was chatting with a friend today, and he gave me a couple of ideas for my CPA method. So tonight I'm about to get those working, and probably by tomorrow, I'll see some sort of significant results.

    Article Writing
    So far the article writing thing didn't pay off. So I'm going to leave that and let it run, just to see if it would get me some clients, and I signed up with TextBroker because I heard they have weekly payments, and tons of writing work. Hopefully I'll get a level 4 account, and won't have to fight for work :)

    ---------------------------
    Thank you guys for your support. I never thought a journal could give me that extra motivation to do some actual work.

    If your monthly goal doesn't successfully meet the target in 5months, then what's your plan?
    btw.. Good Luck!
