Hello, my name is Sebastian. I haven't been active in marketing for a long time but I have been lurking around and digesting tons of information until I decided to take some action. My skills? I'm a very good Video editor and currently making a stable income off of it, also, making money from freelancing every now and then as a designer for pretty much anything, I know my way around photoshop and design like the back of my hand. Also experienced with building websites, not only using platforms but programming too (simple ones though, rarely necessary) I learn pretty fast and actually looking forward to technical challenges. What am I doing now? 1. I make money off of filming and editing weddings (around 1000$/month, three days/week, weekends gone) but that's only valid 5-7 months/year, season job. 2. I manage the website and social networks for a decent-sized company in the pacific, that brings me merely over 200$/month and it takes about 30-60 minutes of my time daily. 3. If I get more free time, I usually take on Freelance projects from Odesk, currently building about a website/month for 4-600$ as an extra income. Tier 2. I have a friend which I issue tasks to and we work together, splitting the money of a few projects like: 1. We ordered 120$ worth of iPhone 4/4S cases from China, we are building an online shop, Web 2.0 on facebook to sell them. We can sell them two times cheaper than anyone around here and still around 6-10 times more expensive than we buy them. We expect, for starting, a profit of at least 800$ for our investment. The market is undersaturated in our country (Romania, btw) there's no one selling decent cases with awesome prints, just plain boring ones. And trust me, there are plenty of teenagers with iPhones out there. We wish to escalate this to selling electronics (like iphones, ipods, psp's, etc.). As a future plan. 2. We have a website, getting 20-30 targeted visitors/day, but they are somewhat useless right now. The website is about facebook covers, we upload 2-3 facebook covers/day with relevant tags and description. After the first week and the first 20 covers added we started getting 20-30 visitors/day, we plan on monetizing this with poker ads or the worst case scenario: Adsense, it should be fine since everything is white-hat-legit though. We don't expect huge profits from this, it's mostly to have a website and an audience we can advertise to later on. 3. We got another website called good movie blog and we wish to use some CPA blackhat tricks to get some extra income to invest it into the white-hat legit businesses when big shot movies get launched. This is quite problematic right now, I'm trying to find a CPA network and understand how I can get a personal content locker, pretty alien things to me right now. 4. We got a pack with 25.000 twitter short funny tweets and we want to setup a bot to post them daily and have the account grow. I still have zero idea on how to do this. 5. We got accepted into CPA Lead (somehow, some time ago, with a personal IT blog that had original content) and now I was thinking we should take advantage of that and find a white-hat way to monetize. 6. We were thinking of escalating a local-online marketing method, like the ones with the dentists in [insert city] and then ask for a monthly subscription. I'll let you know how that works out. How are we working? We use Yammer, we made a company, made a group inside the "company" for "executives" and we have pages for each project, simple as that, we post tasks, suggestions and questions for each project and we manage to get stuff done even if it's a lot of work. Goal? Our goal is to make money, build businesses, learn. Ultimate Goal? Me, personally: I wish to do something useful. I wish to create a product that is useful and professional. I wish to find a need and have the funds and the competence to fulfill that need, for the right price. I believe: I believe BlackHatWorld is a really awesome place to learn a huge deal of no-bs things. And even if my journey is not completely online or related to internet marketing, it is still our common goal: Make a business model and build an empire from scratch, through the internet. A few things: With this thread, I wish to inspire others and help people generate ideas. I also wish to get help and opinions through this. I won't be posting daily updates but will instead post at least three times a week with how it's progressing. Let me know if you have any questions! Thank You!
