    So now that I am done with classes I am starting some IM projects for the summer. My goal is to have 2 micro niche sites earning $5 a day by the end of summer. Hopefully once school starts again all I will have to do is add content from time to time. To start I will work through some methods shared here on BHW as I need some working capital to get going. I will detail my methods and hopefully update daily.

    Today I am going to start with two of the methods detailed in KraftyKyle's The Five Golden Rule of Fiverr thread. I will simply be buying some tweets on fiverr to blast a CPA offer for a free Ipad 3. Fiverr gig is from the user wisperflex. My ad copy was "wow i can't beleive i got an iPad 3 for free at http:xxxxxxx you'd be stupid not to check this out" I will post and update when the gig has been completed. Ill see how this gig goes and maybe try some others to see who brings the best ROI.

    In the next few days I am going to set up some fiverr reselling as my next move.

    So the fiverr gig was delivered very quickly.
    Clicks: 11
    Conversions: 0
    Hopefully these numbers continue to rise and I snag a few conversions as the gig includes a blast tomorrow as well...

    Best of luck to you mate, it seems you have your summer all planed up.
    You should also try placing some CPA offers on your sites, and drive traffic through different sources. My advice is always use a minimum 3 sources of potential "customers".
    Cheers!

    so after the second twitter blast I have generated 51 clicks but no conversions, I am considering trying this again but with a different offer. I am currently working on the fiverr reselling. I will update when that is running.

    So my twitter blast to the CPA offer has generated 6 clicks today for a total of 57 clicks and no conversions. Tomorrow I will put up some posters promoting two CPA offers a job search and scholarship offer at the train station and local community college.

    My reselling biz is close to starting. I should have locked down an outsourcer to do web design/development for me at around $5 an hour and I will be billing somewhere in the range of $20 an hour. Jobs will be sourced from elance, odesk, craigslist etc. Its modeled after the plan in Simple Broker Profit System which you can find in the downloads section.

    so I have sourced my workers but I am having trouble getting jobs. I have sent a lot of emails to craigslist ads as well as applied to some jobs on odesk. In the meantime I went and got my keywords for my MNS site. I used a paid keyword research service to get my keywords. I figured if I am going to invest a lot of time and money into these sites it would be worth spending money to get keywords from someone who has a better idea of what they are doing. I have five keywords as of right now and I am still undecided on which site i will build first. I will update again with my decisions and the stats for that keyword.

    Don't waste your time and money buying tweets from fiverr .. you won't see any conversion.

    Let us know how the reselling biz goes :D

    Nobody is going to believe a tweet like that. The best one I ever saw was for a bag of skittles and loads of people on my facebook actually did it because it's not too unbelievable to get a bag of skittles

    PS tweets on fiverr are probably from people who have fake followers they bought for a fiver on fiverr. I got 10,000 for a fiver on fiverr.

    thanks for your advice I am considering trying a gaming offer (where you have to download a toolbar) and see how that works since your probably right that everyone is blind to free ipad offers at this point...

    Although
    this has given me an idea. Get some twitter accounts from a service on BHW, buy 10,000 followers on fiverr and sell tweets. Gonna try this tomorrow...

    Usually twitter conversion is low and if you go in fiverr way then your success rate will be low even though you
    try out with different offers.Try facebook traffic if you have any methods for driving traffic to offer for better conversion.

    Good Luck on your Journey! I will follow you.

    Did you setup a nice LandingPage for your offers or
    directly linking them to that offer?

    So I have officially started my first MNS site. I registered my domain, got hosting and set up wordpress last night and today. I am using keyword 3 from the previous post. Its stats are as follows:
    kw3
    exact monthly 1000
    cpc 1.24
    intitle 10200
    inurl 4720
    avg pr for 1st page 1.6

    Now I am moving on to creating 5 articles from the keyword and longtails. Articles will be 500-1000 words. Once these are done I will begin link building. I will detail my strategy once I begin that phase.
