I've been studying this forum up and down for a while now and I'm thinking to finally take the leap to start this. I just want to clear up some things for myself to not get my expectations too far ahead of realistic outcomes. A little about me: 17 Years old Live in UK Attending 6th form year 12 Without trying to sound big headed I'm probably more intelligent than most people my age so hopefully that will help me with online marketing. Going to do dentistry in university so want an income to support me (come from poor family). Willing to work long hours With this basic info (I know it's not much to go on), I am hoping you guys can help me decide if internet marketing is worth it for me (seems like it, but would like some opinions). I currently play online games to make money and I can make about 20-200$/day if I spend many hours gambling. Very stressful and frustrating. I am wondering if I could match this income (say about 50$/day average) after half a year to a year. This would be with a few hours every single day with periods of spending more time. Also, for my goal of long term money should I be 100% white hat? If not what aspects of black hat should I incorporate, as in everything or just buying back links off fiver or is that even too risky? What I am mainly planning at the moment so far is just niche websites and making numerous ones. I'd probably be writing at least an article a day up to about 3. If it matters my English can be up to a good standard probably for an article better than this. Sorry about babbling on so much and I hope this isn't too annoying but I just want to know what I can expect after half a year/1 year/2 years.
