    Lately, I've been extremely focus in internet marketing/BlackHatWorld because of my huge interest in making money online. I just love the idea of it ever since I made my first thousand online as a kid. That method died. I've only taken internet marketing more seriously the beginning of this year after discovering BHW.

    I am a 21 YR old from Southern California. This is my journey thread.

    As a young adult, my goal is to be able to make a passive income while I sleep. To achieve this goal, I'll need to play with various methods & combine many of the puzzle pieces until I find one that truly works. (as in adding my own twist) In the beginning, I will try to earn as much money as possible to invest.

    To become successful, you have to help others become successful. Yes, I have been trying my best to contribute to this website & while I help some people, it'll teach me new things every day. I'm truly grateful for this website & love the community here. I'm just going to keep it short from there.

    MY JOURNEY CONTINUES HERE :

    2/18/17
    - Instagram Account + Instagress + CrakRevenue
    Total Earnings = $9.90
    I've been messaging my traffic manually so my conversion rate is 8 out of 150 clicks.
    - planning on creating a movie site
    - spent $30 on sc00by's KIK automator

    3/1/17
    - Beginning of new month, I was recommended by a friend to write a Yelp review for 30 dollars. He profited an extra 30 for referring me.
    - I tested out a different approach with Venmo & earned $2.76 with OGads
    My account got blocked for this, but I tried Venmoing every single person 1 cent & attached with a link to my OGads landing page. Not worth the $2.76.

    3/4/17
    - Thought about creating a Yelp business. Created a list of real people with old aged accounts & started advertising to sell reviews to businesses. I tried making the price cheaper than what the business I wrote for paid.

    3/6/17
    - Sold at least 3 reviews since then & made $90. I will try to contact more business.
    - Instagress is still running on my girl account & more guys are following my Snapcat (in which I'm building). Haven't been active on this project because my Yelp project is going well.
    - Still spending hours everyday on BHW learning new things & planning on starting the movie streaming site.
    - Gonna experiment with porn reupload method
    I will continue to update this everyday.

    I am willing to answer any questions!

    For reason, it won't let me edit my thread. Well... my new update :
    I'm promoting my service via Craiglist & continuing to manually message people on my girl account to get them to my CrakRevenue landing page.
    Will update tomorrow on my results!

    Hello. sc00bt's KIK automator is working okay. It's not perfect, but free updates as long as I'm licensed to have it, it should improve in the near future. He's still working on improving it.
    He also owns Snapchat automator as well.

    Update on my journey :
    3/27/17
    I just got a job at a restaurant & I'm getting paid 15 an hour working full-time. Full time = Monday-Thursday. The weekends, I spend working on my IM journey reading & studying new methods from BHW. I'm moving on to Massplanner soon & leaving Instagress BC of the reviews. So I'm going to test it out.
    With the money from my paycheck, I will continue to invest into bigger projects & see where I go from there.

    This thread is not dead yet. I will continue to update you my IM journey soon! Thank you all for the support again <3

    Welp, today is the day I get pay. Hopefully this minimum wage job pays off! The money that I'll be using to invest in ads, etc!
    I'm pretty excited :D

    This idea's been stuck in my mind the past 2 weeks & now I can finally do it! After I get off work in like 5 hours of course.
    I will be purchasing Massplanner & some Facebook/Instagram ads for my Teespring campaign. Will update you guys!

    New Update. I just designed a shirt & its up on Teespring along with Facebook ads. I'm spending 10 dollars a day from now on.
    I just launched the campaign & so far have reached 1,016 people with 3 link clicks costing me $0.98.

    Will update once I get my first sale or fail. If fail, I shall continue on with a different target audience or new design.
    Ty BHW for your support!

    3,834 reached & 1 sold still... no progress. I will kill my campaign & recreate a new one at a cheaper price. I think I left my hoodie too expensive.
    Will try again. Lost $14.83 Lesson learned.

    I don't know if anyone is following my journey but I will continue to update it like it's my diary. It keeps me motivated. Ty all again if you're reading this.

    I like you, you are essentially a good person inside and just wishes to earn some dough online. Just remember, positive people will always lead you to a better place.

    Please, remember it is all about how hard you wanted, not how easy it is. The harder it gets the better it feels, work hard and play hard is the way my man. Good luck, and may the force be with you through out your journey!

    Well... I just got off work. Before heading back to work from break earlier, I decided to drop another $15 on ads targeting people's behaviors. Well... guess I'm still at 1 sold & it's time to truly end my campaign.

    76 Link Clicks = $35

    Not a very great conversion rate. I will end my campaign now. If anyone has any suggestions on how to maximize FB ads & save money, please any advice would be helpful.

    Hey caliolam!
    Good luck with your journey, you seem motivated which is good!
    I also have a journey thread which I update to keep me motivated and see the progress, which helps.
    I was experimenting with teespring also and want to sell some designs but I tought that it would be better to first build 10k followers on fb and instagram on the niche I want to use and also gain more experience with photoshop and the market while I do this. I won't use any ads for the moment. I will follow your journey keep up the good work!
