    Here we go again. Starting from scratch one more time.

    Hi, I'm Kai. My first venture into Internet Marketing was 6 or 7 years ago when I left Microsoft because I was convinced I could do better, time and moneywise. Over the years I have had a love/hate relationship with the IM game. On five entirely different occasions, with five entirely different products in three different niches, I managed to break the illustrious and oft coveted $1,000/day barrier. My first was with Runescape, then World of Warcraft, then Clickbank, followed by Electronics sales, then Facebook. Each time starting from square one all over again...

    Well... 6th time's the charm?

    I've done it before and I'll do it again!

    I will do my best to update my journey on a fairly regular basis. You are welcome to follow along and ask any questions you can think of or add your own two cents!

    My skills:
    Coding/Programming/Development: HTML/CSS/PHP/SQL/Python/Ruby/Javascript/C++/C#/.NET
    Design/Creative: Logos/Site Design/Video Authoring/Video Editing/Advertising Creatives (Banners/Headers/etc.)
    Other/Misc: SEO (Intermediate)/AdSense/AdWords/CPA/DJing/Card Magic/English
    Software Tools: Notepad(++), Visual Studio, Photoshop, After Effects, Much More

    Doesn't matter if he reveals his niche, if you're on a whole new level to others it doesn't matter. OP isn't stupid and is very confident in what he will achieve. Hats off to him.

    I've actually never touched Vegas.

    I have never needed anything other than After Effects to create fake proof videos for game hacks... (hinthint)

    I got started in QA and game testing. I was part of the XBOX 1.0 core team which consisted of maybe 12-15 people. I quickly moved up to test lead (within 2 weeks), then QA manager (within 1 year), then SDET. (Software Development Engineer in Test) My primary function as an SDET was developing tools for testing/breaking/exploiting other programs. Developing testing tools for games was a serendipitous job role for me. It was the only thing that really prepared me to write and sell hacks for other games when I began IM'ing.
