    Hi there,
    I've just finished my Leaving Certificate in High school and I should be starting to university in September to study Business with Computer science. I started this journey to try and motivate myself to stay on track and aim to achieve my goal of $100/day because i procrastinate and am quite lazy. I'm looking to near this goal to fund going to college for food,accommodation and college fees as my parents aren't able to support me going to college.

    I'm 18 and i've been doing IM as a hobby for the past 3 years, I have gained quite a bit of experience with affiliate marketing and have hit this goal of $100 a day before but really i'm back to square one since I took a break from IM for a year to study for exams and my IM campaigns went to sh*t in the process and now i feel like a lost sheep or something.

    Now that school is over i have a ton of spare time, my friends are working 9-5 so I'm free nearly all day to work on this.
    I have a budget of ?100, basically thats all I have left in my bank account at the moment.I have tools like Scrapebox,Mass video blaster,SEnuke, Market samurai, NHSEO from before. I'm just paying for hosting and domains and a VPS to gain youtube views on vagex,enhance views and u2bviews, I will try to do all SEO myself in the process although google has changed so much i really don't know what works anymore but i will read some threads on here and hopefully that will set me in the right direction.

    I plan to make affiliate sites using buying keywords and using clickbank products.I also want to do Clickbank + Youtube.
    I want to make two sites per week, In 5-7 weeks I hope to have 10 sites with at least 2 making money and Make 3-4 Youtube videos per week. I should be able to buy 10 domains for about $40 using coupons so i have $60 left for hosting :) Just hope i'm not being to overly optimistic xD

    Here is my weekly plan.

    Day 1 : Market research and Buying Domains/Install WP
    Day 2 : Upload themes,Plugins and On-site SEO
    Day 3 : Write 5, 500+ word articles per website, add pages.Set posts to drip over the week
    Day 4 : Make Youtube Video about websites product and add to post
    Day 5 : Make Tier 1 backlinks
    Day 6 : Tier 2 Backlinks
    Day 7 : Tier 3 backlinks and add Youtube video to enhance views,vagex,u2bviews
    Repeat Process.

    If you guys have any suggestions or advice I would appreciate it! and if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask ^.^

    You sound like me when I was starting to get serious with IM. Keep at it, you will do well!

    (and paying for college will be easy as hell!)

    Looks like you got the drive and motivation to get things done and you have a good plan too.
    Hopefully you don't stop your journey when you go back to school. Good luck and I'll be following!

    Hey mate -- good luck with everything...

    I'm in the exact same position as you. Going to be a college student this fall, used to do lots of IM but had to take a break. Now I've lost 75% of my earnings, but I'm getting back into it with niche affiliate sites.

    Good luck and feel free to get in contact with me if you have any questions or want to bounce around some ideas.

    OP, I was too lazy to finish reading your post.

    Indolence
    is the ONLY reason I am not a multi millionaire (as I am better looking and more intelligent than 96.8% of the male population of this world), as you have identified this trait in yourself, then you must work hard to overcome it, as it will be the biggest obstacle in your quest for wealth.

    Good Luck in your Journey

    DAY 1 : Keyword/Market Research

    KW1 : 7K searches/month - General Niche Keyword combined with its extras in the same niche it amounts to around 7k, but could push it way higher if I add more popular but highly competitive KW.


    KW2: 60k searches/month - Found this from google trends in top trends this year. This is a offset of the main niche, but the people in this niche are prepared to spend the extra dollar.
    Its slightly competitive but very profitable.

    Market Samurai analysis
    There are a good few sites with authority ranking against me in these niches, They have a surprisingly low amount of BL but a lot of posts built up. Hopefully I should be able to compete if I optimise correctly with off and on page seo.


    Bought the Domains at GoDaddy using these coupons CJCFW299c and CJCFW4FP
    Got 2 domains for $6
    and hosting at hostgator $0.99c this month.
    Total Spent : $6.99


    Then forwarded the DNS and Set up Wordpress using fantastico. Only took a few minutes.
    I also uploaded all the plug-ins and configured them then ran the site through pingler for it to get indexed a tad quicker.
    I've made a simple header in photoshop just to make it look more customised and not another generic website :)

    Day 2:
    As I Installed Themes,Plugins,and WP yesterday i'm quite ahead of myself and went on to do some of posts for the websites

    I wrote 3 Articles for KW1 website. One not related to the main keyword, two related to the main keyword.
    took me an hour in total to do the three. I'm planning to do two more tomorrow to finish up.

    Wrote 1 for KW2, Related to the KW and have started the second which I will resume tomorrow.
    Took me 30 mins for the 600w article. then i've 250 words on the second one and know how the rest will go which I will continue tomorrow and hopefully do another 2 or 3 articles.

    I also bought a VPS from Host-Stage yesterday but it was set up today so I downloaded vagex,enchanceviews and u2bviews viewers to gain credits so i could get views and likes for my upcoming videos for the websites.

    I set up my youtube account and made a simple video of the product in action using the screen recorder on mac and then uploaded it. I will put it into the view websites tomorrow when they have enough credits

    Total Spent today : $12
    Total Spent : $18.99
    Total Earned : $0

    Day 3 :
    Wrote 5 Articles for KW 1- 3.6k words on site
    Wrote 6 articles for KW2 - 4k Words on site.

    I had Articles on KW 1 took me the longest, although I had 3 done on Day two as I had to research the niche. but I think it came out pretty good in the end.
    KW 2 took me around 4 Hours to write the content for it. I am familiar in this niche so it was okay to write on. I will be writing 2 articles per day for this KW after i'm done until I reach about 50 posts on site. Just to build it up.
    I made sure the posts were optimized for the KW but not overly optimised just to make sure I didn't get penalised.

    Earned : $0
    Spent : $18
    Hours : 7
