Hi Black Hats, After a while of thinking I remembered about a that people who keep their ideas to themselves don't succeed as they are not putting it out there. So here am I putting my idea out there. It's nothing new and quite common I guess, but I'm here to learn and get advice from members that have reached success and can share tips. About Me I'm 20yo, had my failures and small successes in business so far, nothing worth pointing out, just that I have been always interested in business and been thinking about it and doing it since I can remember. Of course I have a day job at this time to support my lifestyle, but lets hope, this is a step forward away from it. I completed a diploma in business and I am in my last semester in web design, so... its obvious that I should get into IM... My real passion is not working on computer, but my goal is to create a online income that I can work on from anywhere on earth and not be forced to work for someone else (because I'm leaving my current location soon and the next year or so would be in various countries, not sure which yet thou...). These are my first steps towards my "bigger picture". Currently I live in Australia. I'm always looking for the next opportunity so here what I will do now. My Method In Australia people pay for a service (won't tell you until I complete the site) that is easily accessible on fiver. I know people will buy this because I have tried before simply posting ads on gumtree (local classified ads) advertising this service and they call and I would get about 10 enquires a week from which about 3 would move on to the service. And this was just putting one simple add in only one location in whole Australia. I offered them to pay when the service is done and they are 100% happy. Even when they where happy they always disappeared and I never got payment.. pissed me off.. I decided that I have to have a site where I can charge them right away while they are searching and they are in the mindset of spending money on the service not 5 days later. This time I'm doing everything neatly and approaching more serious then before. The Preparation Website I need a good looking, professional website, I'm charging on avg. about 50% less then competitors, because well... fiverr.. I'm working on the site right now and connecting all PayPal links and making sure everything works and looks good. For website I'm using hosted wordpress. I already have hosting and domain registered, will register DOTcomDOTau domain in the next few days to be more appealing for Aussie market. Emails I created emails for all big cities Adelaide, Broom, Brisbane, Canberra, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Darwin and one Main that I will use for contact us ext. I did this because I will advertise to start off in gumtree and gumtree doesn't allow me to post in every big city in the same section from the same account. So I need one account for every city, hence all the emails. Gumtree (first advertising location) Using the emails I created before I now registered 8 gumtree accounts. Because gumtree doesn't allow me to post the same sales description for every post, I have to write 8 sales descriptions that are different. I will do some research and write in the same style my competitors write in the specific city. File Keeping What I have learned from my previous failures is to keep all files and everything neat and tidy and easily accessible. So I'm keeping everything nice and together, folders for each city, articles and example photos. I'm using drive for this, also I have connected all my emails for the drive and also all incoming mail is forwarded to my Main email. Questions I have I'm new to IM, what would be the tips you can give me to make people trust my site and buy the service there? SEO tips to target Australians? Anyone can share their experience offering fiver services (I have read about that before but someone my relate to me maybe?) How else would you recommend me advertising? I have before had ads on local newspapers (suburb) it costs about $120 to advertise in two issues and every house hold has one dropped at. (for this I know you need to know my niche but maybe have some tips anyway?) Summary Like I said before this is my journey to create online income. I don't know what you will think about it but I thought if I can share my journey and get some tips on the way I'm already a winner because learning new things I believe is the best outcome.. of course a fat bank account is also nice. Will keep writing here what I do and share my experiences and difficulties. Not promising to keep you updated daily or anything in that mater as I do get angry at the whole thing and I find it better to just switch off and work on something else till I can get back on track whit cool head. I recon my website should be done in the next 2 days then I could get some review and tips from you more experienced IM's! I could also share it in PM's with the ones genuinely interested in helping a noobie like me. Looking forward for your tips! Cheers Black Hats!
