    Greetings fellow BHW'ers, I'm Platfis and have been lurking this forum for several months currently. Let me introduce myself a bit; I've been doing IM for the past 6 months now and I definitely see potential to make $1000 a month. Currently I make around $150-$250 from adsense on Youtube and $50 from PPD. My aim is to make $1k/month using CPA and mainly SEO.

    What I've done so far:
    Last week I've swapped from PPD+ Youtube to CPA (Adworkmedia)
    I have built a site to which my Youtube videos redirect, as well as some SEO. (they are several smaller niches). (I am already seeing great results. In 5 days I've already made $37 from this website, which I'd just set up.)
    So for the last 5 days I've made $64 in total, however I think I will be able to earn $1k/month if the dedication and hard work is present. The position I am in will allow me to work 2-3 hours a day on the website, creating new posts for the keywords.

    I mainly target keywords that aren't even showing up in Google's Keyword Tool, they allow me to rank from only on-page SEO. These keywords typically generate anywhere from 1-10 visitors a day, each. The posts for the keywords do not take very long to set up, therefore I think my journey will be one of expanding my niche and website. I love seeing my site expanding every day, and seeing the reward in $ from my work quickly.

    If you have any questions regarding my journey, feel free to ask!

    Thanks a lot, however these posts require me about 15-30 minutes to set up, and I can easily make 5 of them a day. That would mean 5-50 visitors added every single day after they are indexed by Google. If 1 out of 2 was to click my locked link, and 1/2 would click an offer and 1/10 of those would complete the offer that would mean 1/2*1/2*1/10=1/40. If a download is $1.00 on average this would mean that my average income will increase by $0.50 every single day, as a results it would take only 2 months for me to reach $30 a day or $1000 a month,

    Right?

    I use AWM's link locker. I am not planning to reveal the niche I use as another person might steal them, hopefully you understand.
    btw, these are yesterday's earnings:
    Impressions: 89
    Clicks 48
    Leads: 5
    Earnings $4.85

    Probably my mind, these things just come up. The keywords are closely related. The best keyword tool is your mind IMO. A couple of weeks ago I wanted to find good niches, however when I woke up a niche suddenly struck me a couple of weeks ago and I started using that..

    Yesterday I've added 5 articles to the website, and did onsite optimisation for all of my (11) current posts.
    The earnings were not very good however I believe it won't happen that often:
    Impressions: 83
    Clicks: 42
    Leads: 1
    Earnings $2

    don't get discouraged by the low earnings. keep it up and you will hit 1k/month soon enough.

    1k/month wont be a problem for you. As long as you are consistent, and that you keep working, you will get there eventually!

    Good luck friend.

    Thank you all for the good wishes, they truly motivate me!

    Yesterday's earnings were disappointing again:
    Impressions: 94
    Clicks: 37
    Leads: 6
    Earnings $3
    I wrote only two posts yesterday, I am still waiting for most of my posts to get indexed by Google, as currently only 3 are and my main traffic is from a few bad Youtube videos.
    For today I plan on making 5 posts and 5 Youtube videos to bring in some more traffic. My main goal for June currently is to make $100 from AWM, however if my posts are indexed and I upload some Youtube videos I think I might be able to do a lot better.

    UPDATE: I know what causes the low conversions lately, there were some images on my most popular posts that were distorted in size, I should be getting better results soon.

    Just a quick update on the last two days,
    June 6 was $5
    June 7 was $12
    It seems my posts are getting properly indexed now, hopefully this trend will continue. I haven't made any posts in the past two days as I was away but my plan is to make 8 of them today. My aim for this month is to get 7 consecutive days that bring in $50 from CPA.
