This will be my first real attempt at making an earning in the IM world. I have zero experience when it comes to any of this so the way that i'll be gauging my sucess isn't in how many $/day I can earn it's going to be more what I've learned. Obviously money is a great motivator and that's my long term goal but this will be more of a "getting my feet wet" kind of journey. The Plan Porn auto-blog. Very simple, will be following Reinstecker's spoon-fed method with little tweaks and twists to try and optimize for my specific niche. I have a very specific niche with quite a few sub-niches all very closely related. I will be using social media to drive traffic to the blog and I'm going to try different things for monetization. As of right now I have plugrush widgets trying to earn me some daily $ with cpm, crackrevenue PPLs with camsites and dating sites and crackrevenues mobile redirection. These may change throughout the journey as I test different setups to see what will work best for me. I wanted to start this a while ago but I didn't have enough posts to do it so I'll get you up to speed with whats happened so far. April 14 - Bought Domain/hosting 7.00$ for the month Bought 10 private proxies 12$/month Just under 20$ spent to get things going April 24 First sale on crackrevenue 2.00$ for a camsite trial April 25 Another sale this one for .47$ not sure exactly what it was Geomatic redirects people in different countrys April 26 So currently I have 9 autoblogs going with the corresponding amount of social media accounts. Twitter has been locking some of my accounts pretty fast thought. I've been using the proxies and making sure there's no cookies or anything like that but in less than 12 hours new ones get locked. I'll have to wait on these till I get my new phone (sometime in the next day or two). So 6 twitter accounts running with about 200 followers each and growing everyday all specifically targeted for my niche. Between all my blogs I'm averaging 1000 visits per day. My CPM with plugrush isn't doing very well though. I'm lucky to get 5 sells a day with that. Took a look at the options today and I had sell traffic selected which I think might have something to do with it. They don't have a lot of categories that fit in with my niche so selecting that could be why it's not doing to well. I'll know tomorrow when they update the earnings. Money spent to date 19.00$ Money earned to date 2.50$ It's a start personally I'm quite happy with the progress made so far. I was running into problems all over the place in the first week. It took me 3 days to get my first autoblog done. Now I can do one in and hour and a half. I'm going to get one more made and work more on my social media presence. I'm on twitter, tumblr and stumble. I don't think stumbles doing a whole lot for me. Twitters bringing me lots of traffic on the accounts that aren't getting locked. Tumblr is growing slowly but steadily. If you have any comments, feedback, advice or questions I'm always open to it. This is first and foremost a learning experience for me.
