    --Intro--


    Welcome to (what I believe is) the first joint journal and race on BHW! This is simply to add excitement to the Christmas season here at BHW, and to provide motivation to those that are making little to no daily money!

    Here's the idea - a friend of mine, Jasonz10, here on BHW and I were talking and we came up with an idea - a joint journal! Sounded pretty cool. But then I thought, why not make it a race? So here it is! A race to a steady $50/day, for at least 5 days straight. We will both be using our own methods, which we will be posting here (look out for Jason's post right after mine!). Updates will be as often as possible (most likely several times per day). Unfortunately, posts can't be edited after (24 hours?) or so, so you'll have to look through the posts for our posts for updates after that period!

    So without further ado, let's start!


    ========

    Hey everyone! This will be where all of my updates and methods will go. Stats will start on the 14th (Wednesday).

    Here are the methods I will be using:

    ::Micro Niche Sites::
    (*least important as of now, last method I will spend time on*)​
    I already have one micro niche site that I've set up, ranked at #8 for its keyword. I've bought some backlinks that should be going out in a day or two, so I'm hoping to get it ranked to #1 soon. (will probably need to do a bit more seo, but the competition is basically nothing) The site will be monetized with a content locker. There are 4.4k monthly global searches, at rank #1 I'd get about 40%, so about 1760 clicks per month, if 10% convert on the content locker (I'll be using LeadBolt for now), that's 176 conversions, about $350/month, ~$12/day, but we'll assume we'll get lower results than that!

    Projected earnings per day: $5/day


    ::Fiverr::
    I've posted up 2 Fiverr gigs - one selling a huge list of forums, the other selling daily lists of working public proxies. (scraped and tested by myself, of course) So far the forums list has gotten one sale. Over the next day or two, I plan on putting up 23 more gigs for simple things like this (where delivery is a matter of uploading a file).

    Projected earnings per day: $5/day (not very optimistic)


    ::Online RPG Sites::
    There are several sites of the format that I'm working with. I've already written up a bot for one, it gathers the online list and mass-messages all of them. CTR is insane, and conversion rates are awesome. I plan on finding 10 total sites like this, botting them up, and spamming them throughout the day with simple "I'll give you a {ingame item} if you'll sign up to my site real quick" messages.

    Projected earnings per day: $20/day


    ::Online Chat Sites::
    I've found a few pretty good converting online chat sites of various niches. I will be sending at least 10,000 messages on a single one of them each day (with a bot of mine, of course), which should bring at least 500 clicks, and historically they've had an EPC around 10c-20c, but we'll see what happens.

    Projected earnings per day: $30/day




    Stats and updates will come frequently! Be sure to check out Jason's post below as well!

    First update already. :D I've decided that the Fiverr thing is what I'll be starting on first, getting up 23 more gigs for a total of 25. I'll update you all when I get them all up, and I'll probably be searching for those game sites while I'm at it!

    Good to hear! :D

    Got 1 more gig up, and I'm heading off to bed. Hopefully I'll have the last 22 gigs up tomorrow, and I'll at least have a list of the game sites ready. Then the next day I can start botting them up, and the day after that start going full force!

    Well, me and Jason were on AIM as I posted this, so we were trying to make sure his post was right after mine. Unfortunately BHW has a bug, if you post in the same minute as the original post, your post will be the first one. Dunno why it happens, but yeah, hopefully that post will get deleted. :p

    A race is awesome, and chances are faaaaar slimmer you'll end up abandoning the journal like 90% do, as you are getting competitve in a direct way. Guys love competitions, lol :) .. Anyhows, Good luck! Subscribed.

    i wouldn't say 90%.... there's heaps of people recently that keep up to date. but like you said, we'll see...

    hopefully they both do well... i don't think they care who wins, they're both encouraging each other!

    Alright, back home! I've put up several more gigs on Fiverr, and now I'm going to start up the game sites portion. I'm testing the bot I've already made, and then I'll be implementing it into other sites. Stay tuned!

    Same! That and Sekirei are my two favorite animes. Code Geass, Death Note, High School of the Dead, Murder Princess, Chobits, are some others at the top of my list. :)

    Thanks!

    haha I sure hope that the race aspect will help a lot with it. :) Thanks!

    I dunno, I'm a very competitive person. ;) But nah, the race aspect is mainly to encourage both of us mutually, to give us a more direct goal to strive for. Sometimes people stray from the general need of money, because they don't see the immediate effects for some reason. However, with a race, both participants are striving towards a concrete goal that they both want. That's the theory anyways. :D

    I really like that online RPG sites, I think it may be scaled quite a bit if it works. Anyway wish you luck to both.

    In the process of taking my midterms, so lots of time to brainstorm. Gonna be hitting those chat sites veeery hard today, shooting for an optimistic $250 just from that.

    Nice new twist to the ol "journal thread"! A race is cool :D

    I would donate my viral video, but I got into *******, and Affillion so I'm going to suck the cash out of it.

    Good luck to both, hope you reach the goals and share some ideas in the future ;)

    Update

    I haven't made much recently, but I have started two new campaigns. For one, I need a way to send out thousands of e-mails, which I haven't found, but I believe it will monetize very well if I find a way. The other method is just playing the waiting game. I made a PPC ad that links to my site which redirects to a CPA offer. I haven't gotten any clicks but I haven't invested any money which is good I guess.

    If anyone knows of any mass emailing software/services, that don't ban for spamming, it'd be appreciated if you were to share with me :)
