Hey fellow Blackhatters! Long time Lurker here at blackhatworld! I have decided to make a move and dip my feet into the world of online marketing! I'm 26 years old and currently a manager at a local fast food establishment. My Goal is to develop skills associated with online marketing with little to no prior knowledge, and hopefully use those skills to be able to quit my job! I would need to make a minimum of about $1,600 per month to be able to make this happen. I do have a little bit of start up money, but I dont want to get discouraged investing it and seeing no return. After doing some brainstorming, I have found a decent evergreen niche that has been around for quite some time and is used around the world. It also just so happens that it is something that I am passionate about. Upon doing some research, there are a couple major retailers and also amazon that are selling the products I plan on reviewing. I am still trying to decide which affiliate route I would like to take. Shareasale is offering 4% commission along with 30-45 day cookies as opposed to amazon, which I believe is also 4% but only 24 hour cookies (correct me if i am wrong). Due to how amazing everybody is saying amazon is, I feel as if this will be the best option starting out. I have also thought about if I should try churn and burn methods using CPA after reading basstrackerboats thread, but this method doesn't seem as "stable". Thanks to meathead1234's sticky "Easy 100$ A Day - perfect for noobs" I am on track with how I want to pursue the webpage but I am still working on details. With my niche there are a handful of different manufacturers with a large variety of my product to suit just about everybody's "style". This seems almost like a problem as there are so many different products, I am unsure if I should do a wordpress style, or a forum style webpage. Upon further thought, Instead of getting too far ahead of myself, maybe doing 5 product reviews per manufacturer is a better route. My agenda for the days to come. 1: Webpage A: Figure out an appropriate domain name and hosting (possibly purchase existing domain) B: Develop a basic wordpress theme and layout the base of the site C: Begin writing 5 to 15 reviews for the different products per day 2: Research adding social media to the campaign to promote traffic A: Research and purchase 3-5 proxies or VPNs and create accounts associated to those addresses, Looking into facebook and twitter, Possibly pinterest? B: Research Automating the growth of said accounts C: Use social media accounts to direct traffic to website (unsure of what extent to do this to) 3: Look into SEO strategies for young webpages/review blogs. I'd appreciate any input all of you have and look forward to seeing your responses. Thank you for your time and wealth of knowledge here on BlackHatWorld!!!
