    The goal of this journey is to reach $100 / Day with one website. Currently monetized with Adsense, but that might change later down the road if I can find a product that's worth selling in this niche.

    Short Term Goals
    • Write 50 articles total (currently at 5)
    • 5k followers my social media
    • 10k page views / month
    Long Term Goals
    • 100k page views / month
    • $100 / day consistently
    • 10k followers on my social media
    • Hire full timer writers
    Current Weekly Goal
    • Write 1 article and shared on 30 platforms by Dec. 9, 11:59PM
    Notes About The Project
    So this website was create on Dec. 5, 2016 and I've already started promoting it and getting traffic to the website. The CPC is complete ass right now so I need to work harder to find better keywords that'll give me a higher CPC. Yesterday I had 5 clicks on my website and made a total of $1, that's horrible.

    I still need to optimize the website, it's on a shared hosting and the speed is pretty bad. Going to move it to a VPS, remove some plugins, and hardcode what I need into the website itself.

    I've spent $0 on this website so far (this doesn't include hosting).

    Current Stats

    Nice to see you taking action. I will follow your thread carefully. By the way, you mentioned creating a poet and sharing through 30 platforms. What kind of platform? Would you be kind to explain further.

    Best of luck with your project.

    Sounds good to know. I understand that there are lot of automated tools for social media. Do you care to say what tools are you using for the forum automation?

    Are you getting traffic from search engine or only from platforms? Thanks

    I'm using FollowLiker for Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest. When I post on Instagram it will automatically sync to the Twitter and Pinterest (IFTTT) and FaceBook page.

    If you looked at the picture you would see where my traffic is coming from. Right now it's all platforms and social media with 2 people from organic.

    Thanks mate

    I am happy for you. The progress that you have made is very much motivating. I will urge you that with the set goals, you can be able to break them down into the daily targets. It will help you achieve the end goal objectives much easier as compared to the having the whole goal at stake. Make sure that you are identifying the mistakes you make along the way and probably being able to learn from them.

    Thanks everyone!

    Definitely will try and identify my own mistakes. Part of this journal is for me to write down what i've done and see what's working and what isn't.

    I've done 20/30 already with less then 12 hours to go. Will definitely hit the goal and will try and pass it too.

    Update - Dec 9, 2016
    Okay so I reached my weekly goal that I set a few days ago. I've wrote 1 article and posted it to at least 30 different platforms. So with one goal done, it's time to create another goal.

    Goal for December 16, 2016 - 11:59AM
    • Create 1 infographic
    • Write a 1000 word article
    • Share both to at least 20 platforms (lower because I can't be spamming these platforms and finding new active ones in my niche is quite challenging)

    Notes
    Okay, so this was the first week of launch but off to a good start traffic wise. Looks like I'm getting a little bit of some organic traffic right now too. Updates will most likely be every friday from now on, that's the schedule I've set and what I'm going to be work with. I'm going to be spending this weekend preparing for the next article, organizing an infographic, and working on the website.

    Wish you a luck! Somehow I feel this could be successful.

    If I understand correctly someone mention that your niche is some kind of art, if that is true I fully support it, there is so many social media pages and forums of people who like to read that stuff.

    Keep on.
