I love this part of BHW. It gave me so much motivation especially when things didn't work the way I hoped... That's why I started this journey! I hope you all can find some motivation reading my updates. Who Am I? I'm emzed, 20 years old, currently studying at university. I'm not starting from scratch, I actually got into internet marketing a few years ago, working with poker/betting sites. It wasn't easy, I made my first $4000 then stopped for almost a year.... and started again from exactly 1 year ago! I've got to say that my first experience with IM definitely helped as I already knew the very basic things. My Goals My goal is to reach $4000/month with Amazon Associates, then move on and diversify my income. This must be a long term, relatively stable, income from large authority niche sites (How many? 5 sites would be perfect.) Why? i think $4000 of pure passive income would be (more than) enough for me to live the way I want, travel and, most importantly, invest in other projects and make even more money! What Am I Doing to Make Money: My Strategy When I started 1 year ago, I knew I wanted 2 things: > Something reliable > Something that could potentially bring me very good money passively I stumbled upon Amazon Associates and decided to give it a go. I took it extremely seriously from the very beginning, just like any other offline business. 1) I created my first site in Nov 2013, it failed. Niche selection was bad. It's all fine, I learned so many things thanks to this failure. 2) I created my 2nd site (A) in january/february 2014. I put as much effort as I could (while going to uni) and came up with my own strategy in regards to site promotion and content strategy. This site started making money in May 2014 and I... 3) Created 2 more sites in May (B and C). I'm currently promoting these 2 sites. 4) Keep creating & growing niche sites until I reach my $4000/month goal. *** AUGUST 2014 EARNINGS *** August 2014 was my best month so far! I made a total of $2400! This means I'm more than halfway to reach my goal. This was the first time I experience the real beauty of passive income. I traveled for 2 months, didn't work at all, and came back home with even more money! Here's a screen from Amazon. (in case you're wondering- the other $300 I made are from amazon EU and CA!) *** GOALS FOR SEPTEMBER 2014 *** 1> Leave site A, B and C making money on their own until January 2015 (then publish new articles) Schedule 3 articles a month to be published on each site, until the end of december (already bought & received all of them) Promote site A for Christmas. Start promotion for B and C. Get them ready for christmas. â€‹2> Start a new niche site by the end of September Feel free to ask me questions here or PM me!
