    Hi guys, I'm Spuffed and I have been persuaded by you guys to go on a wild adventure to the wild parts of Internet Marketing! I've been gathering information and storing it in my membrane whilst I waited for my new debit card to arrive.

    So on this wild adventure I am looking to potentially make $10 a day, just to begin with, you know get my feet wet and all that. I think once I get better with experience it'll become like a second nature to me and I will have no problem doing it, but for now this is my first journey and i'd love for you all to not only join me but to also HELP me.


    So i've ordered my niche website from luhasr for $35 and will be getting that in the next couple days (hopefully).

    Things to do:
    - Web hosting, I've looked at iPage and it looks good so far? Any recommendations? (I'm currently with GoDaddy, big mistake!)
    - Create a Facebook page and other Social Media pages once my niche + website is up
    - Create an Adsense account or some other monetization affiliate? Recommendations for a MNS please.
    - Taking recommendations as to what my next steps should be...

    I really hope we can do this together and once I am familiar with IM I hope to give back to the BHW community as it has to me.

    I've heard that Bluehost is good. But I personally know that Hostwinds are great, support, uptime, prices -- everything is great.

    Good luck with your journey, dude.

    $10 a day is a good and realistic goal! :)

    I'll have a look! I mean iPage is $2.18/m for everything... but once I get my niche and all that I'll look into it a bit more! :)

    Yeah I think considering it's my first proper IM journey that I should start small and who knows if it pays off well keep it going, if not then onto the next project, and I feel that I will get better with experience so every new journey will most likely be better than the last.

    Thank you :D

    Thank you :) I hope so too!

    Hopefully $100,000 per month! ;) haha.
    Thank you! I hope I won't disappoint you and anyone else drawn to this thread.

    So just an update, I know this thread is dead and all but I received my MNS site!
    The hosting I went with was iPage and i've created a Facebook page too.

    My website is affiliated with Amazon Affiliates and I have purchased some backlinks!
    Any recommendations as to what my next step should be?

    I'm considering purchasing No Hands SEO and No Hands Proxies, would that be a wise idea?

    Wish you the best of luck with your journey.

    In addition, I don't know whether you'll have good experience with iPage or not. Yet, for me, I had very bad experience with them, exactly, the speed which it could spread bad affect to my site UX and SEO.

    You're not wrong, the page is actually pretty laggy... but maybe once it starts to make some money and show improvement I can change hosts.

    Do you think buying NHS (No Hands SEO) would be a smart idea?

    I suggest you to keep using godady or 1and1 they are pretty good

    Keep us updated how it's going. Assuming 10$ is a decent amount for this i wish you luck with this.

    OP what do you mean "ordered a niche site"? Do you tell someone a niche and they make the rudimentary site? Forgive my ignorance...
    Neither service has a very good reputation. I would at least take hosting elsewhere. It really is smarter - in a lot of cases the domain they've thrown in isn't actually your domain but is leased to you as a condition of using their hosting service.

    The faster the better to change the host.

    I have no idea with the tool, but I heard good praise with GSA instead.

    Now even I know not to go with GoDaddy haha! Thanks anyway though. I'll keep you guys updated.
    So basically I paid someone money that created a niche and website for me, just as my first project so I can get a rough idea how they look and work in general.

    But how do I transfer the website/domain? Doesn't it take like 60 days or something until I can transfer domains?

    I'm considering buying No Hands SEO and just letting it run backlinks to my Niche, would that be a smart idea?

    Oh yeah and I also ordered an article a few days ago! The article turned out well written and full of keywords.

    I just purchased a gig from Fiverr in which they write an article, spin it and submit it to 2500-3000 directories! Hopefully this helps with my SERP.

    You can't go wrong with HostGator - they have solid customer support and they are cheap. Good luck man!
