    Thought I would start my own journal as I enjoy reading others journals at BHW and I want to make my own hopefully it will keep me motivated and see how far ive come.

    Anyway I am 20, a student ,newbie at IM, and work part-time. Joined this forum a month ago been researching about making money online for the past 3 months only recently decided to stop reading and start doing so I said "LETS DO THIS!" to myself, lol. I find myself reading this forum 1+ hour a day.

    So the methods that I have started with are..

    Fiverr reselling on ebay

    I started reselling a gig on ebay last week made about £20 from it. So I upscaled tonight and have posted 5 on ebay lets see how this goes would be a easy £100 a week eh?

    Micro Niche Sites

    I purchased 5 sites of chinky_chin about 3 weeks ago and I think they are nearly ready. Thought I would purchase some instead of making them myself so I see how the are made and hopefully make more if they are profitable.

    Hobby Site

    I have a blog site that I made few weeks ago its in the technology niche. I am interested in technology so I post every day on it, don't expect it to rank for anything becasue it is very competitive but hey some experience is good. I have a fanpage for this site which I bought 1000 likes for it havn't done any SEO for it.


    Thanks for reading.

    Thanks! :)

    Yeah i like it aswell, it's pretty easy perfect for newbies :)

    I made 2 sales today on ebay so I made about £8. I have about 6 different services on ebay now, im just trying to smell what sells and upscale it.I need to make my selling page on ebay look better as now it's only a few lines of text. I may think of other places to sell but I need to research more about this. Might consider making a website if it gets better..smell what sells and upscale right?

    I see my mirco niche sites are online but chinky_chin hasn't got back to me so maybe he hasn't finished tweaking them yet so should have them soon.

    made £0.80 from my hobby site today which im happy about because its only got 2 visitors since it started lol.

    Money made today £8.80 :)

    Thanks :)


    I have made around £20 the past few days from my ebay/fiverr venture not too bad.

    I have received my niche sites from chiky_chin about 3days ago. I have 5 sites 3 of which are at the bottom of page 1 and one is at the top of page 2 and the other is page 8 thats good already!. I only added adsense to my sites and started to linkbuild aswell. I have added 500+ social bookmarks of fivver for each site aswell as a 20k scrapebox blast for each. So today from my adsense sites I have made 0.25 which I am happy about :). I also need to find out how to track my keywords as I am just typing them into google LOL

    Nice thread, hopefully you can watch my journal too!

    Don't give up, it may feel hard sometimes but remember, stick with one singel method until you see that it really pay off, then move on.

    Subscribed to your thread :)
    By the way, one of my acquaintances had a hobby blog in the technology niche. That was 2 years ago. Now it brings him a steady $1000/month income with adsense. I've taken a look at his blog, and it isn't half as optimized with content, adplacements etc. that it could be. :D

    Thanks for posts everyone very motivating indeed! Anyway been working hard today, ordered some more articles for my sites, 2 for each site. Waiting on my bookmarks to be delivered still. Wrote a few articles for my hobby blog because I feel like I have been neglecting it lol. On ebay I tidied up the descriptions on each of my listings to make them more appealing hopefully. So far today I have not made a penny! lol EEK but oh well slow and steady....going to install traffic travis now and play around a little :)

    Thanks :)

    I made 1 sale on ebay today and £0.30 on adsense! So about 4.30 profit :)

    I posted some ads on my local ad site kinda like craigslist. One was offering my seo services and another was selling my service the one from ebay for 5x the price Well i got a reply for the SEO and the guy asked me details of my service etc I dont even know what to say back lol need to read some in the offline section tomorrow night! I work weekends with 12 hour shifts so dont have time until tomorow night. If anyone has any ideas please share.. I could even outsource work to you lol The other ebay thing wants to know my company website/name and fb page.. I dont have any so im kinda stuck lol

    Funny reading my old posts lol I Thought I would let everyone know howI got on in the last 7 months.

    I quit doing ebay and fiverr and despite my best efforts I could not rank my MNS, I bought every linkbuilding package on fiverr lol I was working 12 hour shifts at work and then IM into the early hours 3-4am I don't know how my GF stuck me :p

    After around 1-3 months I started to rank for my keywords and now currently I am making £30-£40 per day on my MNS alone.

    I was also on the social scene I started to learn how to build traffic from facebook, twitter and pinterest. I made lots of facebook pages lol l I built a website around a Clickbank product and drove traffic to it collecting emails and selling the Clickbank products all from social traffic. The site started to gain high spots in google from just social links alone so I am getting ALOT of traffic per day with everything combined!

    I now make x,xxx per DAY now which has changed my life drastically! I quit my factory job :) I make more in a week than that shitty job per year!

    So I just wanted to make this post and say thanks to the wonderful BHW community!

    And one word of advice to newbies is that if i can do it you can too..Just look at other successful people and copy them.

    Also books that changed my life:

    Millionaire FastLane
    Rich Dad Poor Dad
    Ca$hvertising

    Good luck bros
