A week ago, my brother told me the following: "You're wasting your time with your website. It'd be a miracle if you were to ever pull $300/month." To which I replied: "challenge accepted !" In fact, I want to make it to $700 per month. I've been dipping my toe in meathead's "Easy $100 a day, perfect for noobs" method for the last 6 months. For the unaware, the idea is to send visitors to your blog, on which you're recommending clickbank products. And you generate that traffic through manual commenting (forums, blogs, news...) In the thread mentioned above, people have been making $2000 - 10 000/month with this dumb method. So my target isn't exactly "pie in the sky" stuff. But it's still very challenging for a noob like myself. Here's what my traffic looks like since december. As you can see, the spikes have been very sporadic. $54 have been made so far, because I've been so inconsistent with my commenting. Time to get real. The obstacles I will face on my journey will be the following: 1. Commenting is TEDIOUS. My god is it tedious. Having to sign up to each site to post a comment is probably the most tedious part. 2. Facebook is a b*tch. They ban my accounts when I use the FB plugin on news sites. Despite spinning my comments. I'll need to dig into this, probably will need proxies and multiple accounts. 3. Self-doubt. IRL, you never meet these people making a killing online. And the internet is full of bullshit, so I can't be confident that making substantial money online is doable, until I accomplish it myself. Some members on here manage to post at a rate of 150 comments/hour. I don't know how it is humanly possible... but practice makes perfect, so I'm gonna try to be consistent.
