    This is something I have wanted to do for a while.

    I am going to explore an area I have never worked in, step by step starting with just £10.

    My Aim

    I am going to teach noobs that are willing to work how to start. There are plenty of threads on here that show you how to make money, hell I have posted 1 or 2 but if you are the doubter that see's these and goes 'yeah right' then this thread is for you.

    I am going to document every step and be completely open about you all.

    Goals

    If you want to start IM you will need money, it makes it much easier and this is a core concept a lot of people do not seem to appreciate. I am not talking $1000's or even $100's. $20 will get you a domain and a bit of hosting to start so with £10 ($15 i think) I am going to turn it in £1000 through amazon only with hard work and learning.

    There will be tools I use that cost money but if you cannot afford them, buy a gig on fiverr from a respected seller.

    My Background

    I have skills in HTML and CSS as well as PHP. I know CMS such as wordpress, joomla, drupal and ecommerce stores like opencart. This is how I have made my money so far. I also have a high passion for learning and SEO has been something that has made me 'tick' for a while. I love the complexity of it all. I have a few SEO clients but the majority of my work has been in web design. As for my time in CPA/Affiliate stuff my experience is basically 0.

    I also used to run a YouTube partnering network and my skills with video as well as social promotion is strong. This will be key but as I said I will be 100% transparent so you will see everything.

    So tomorrow is day 1. I have £10 and want £1000. I aim to provide daily 'live' updates.

    Let us begin.

    Go with wordpress + Amazon. Ecommerce sites dont work. Also unique content is key.
    Doing the same thing with my site.

    Day 1 report

    I have been busy running family errands but today I have managed a few hours.

    Searching the forum I found a code to get 3 .com domains for $1.50 for a year. This is great! Look below for details

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...rking/529459-get-register-com-50c-domain.html

    The domains I got are:

    Domains removed after much thought - they are a book and film review site, camera reviews, headphone reviews

    You can clearly see the areas I will be targeting. My original plan was to target 1 niche with 1 site but for $1.50 you may as well get 3 and see what happens.

    As for hosting I only ever use 1 company.

    tsohost.com

    They have been fantastic for me since day 1. They are UK based so maybe it won't suit some of you but at £5 per month for a basic package what more can you ask for?

    I'm going to install wordpress on all the sites now and hunt for a good theme and get that installed. I'll then get a logo done in photoshop for each site and then I think I shall call it a day.

    I've spent £6, I have 1 month hosting and 3 .com domains in 3 areas with lots of longtail potential

    Tomorrow I'll install my plugins, ill take you through that and then its time to get some content. :)

    BTW I should mention.

    TSO give a free domain with their hosting. I already have 3 accounts with them so I have no need to register again but included it in the budget as I am looking at this from a noobs point of view.

    I'm not sure if revealing your domain name is a good idea.

    I've seen other threads that went down after too much abuse because he mentioned his domain name.

    No matter what, I hope you continue with your journey. I've been earning with Amazon since 2007 but we can always learn something together.

    I think you should hide you domains if you ask me, there are many competition here. Its okay to share but i think its too much.

    Anyways, Good share and Good luck on your journey. I'll keep my eyes in this thread :D

    This is shaping up to be one worth looking at. Tried Amazon two years ago and I lacked the skills to pay the bills, but being looking to get rolling with it again. Daily updates are much appreciated, Tired of looking at follow me threads that op updates every other month.

    Nice thread, hope you can make this happen for yourself.

    How do you claim your free domain on TSO, just pick a domain and let them purchase on your behalf? I've never claimed it.

    One of the Golden rules is: NEVER GIVE UP :)
    Even if you are facing some issues now, continue your journal & journey. Taking action should be independent from other things.

    All the best ;)
