    I am currently enrolled in a university and I using my free time to work on IM. My most recent project right now is a micro niche site focusing on one product and its accessories in the tobacco industry. This site will be monetized with Adsense and then an affiliate program on CJ once I become accepted.

    My current goal is to spend the next year (or more) traveling the world, living life and pursue my long time interest of skiing. For this to be possible I have the goal to have $5000 saved and bring in about $100 per day. I plan on creating multiple sources of income to get here such as multiple niche sites and a personal blog.

    End of Feb Goals:
    • $100 total revenue
    • 2 sites making $15 per day total
    • Learn as much as possible
    I know this will be a challenge and a lot of work but I am willing to put the time in with this motivation. Please feel free to follow me as I will be providing updates towards my income and goals.

    Hey OP, sounds like you've got a smart head on your shoulders. Dont be fooled, you may not see immediate results.

    Sounds like you've got your foundation set right.

    spend a ton of time finding, targetting, and optimizing your site for easy keywords. this is the most important step. use tools or pay for services that provide knowledge on keywords.

    good luck and keep us updated.

    1/9 Update:
    This past week a took a large step backwards to better develop niche research and create an SEO plan. This was a short term set back but in the end will be very promising. I currently have my game plan set up and am currently doing keyword research using semrush.... I feel like I am moving nowhere but I know it the end this planning phase will pay off. I plan to launch my website by February 20th.


    ***If anyone was methods they use to find keywords that they would like to share it would be much appreciated.
