Hey, this is yet another rant thread by me inspired by something someone asked me on Skype. However, this is not a brag thread, it is a thread that is supposed to maybe motivate a soul out there to take action and for me to reflect on the past year (and how crazy it have been). We are not going to talk numbers here (besides the starting capital). Last year, around January, I had $100 on my PayPal account. I had started a site in September the prior year (2014) monetized by Amazon but without any idea of what I was doing, no background research on the niche, no keyword research nor any prior experience in SEO. I started it, put up 2,500 words on the website and saw that it was bringing in $16/mo. I didn't think much of it at all from what I remember. But I felt like I was onto something. I got help by antichrist on here a lot and he told me to add more content to the site and gave me a lot of tips (I will forever be grateful for that Neil!). I started making more and more each month until I felt like I hit some sort of peak and sold it off for a nice sum. I look back at that site and see how many mistakes I made thorough the year and how bad it was looking (also the CTR was horrific in the beginning) but at the same time - I learn from my experiences. The sites I have made are far from perfect and I am still trying to make my process better with trying different keyword methods for example. But what have made me money is not necessarily how fucking awesome I make my sites, the perfect SEO both on and off-page my sites have nor anything like that. It is based on the fact that I took action and risked all of my money. I have always invested 100% as the money I have all come from internet marketing. My first site was a GTA hacking site where I copied all the hacks from other GTA hacking sites and hoped for the best. It didn't turn out great at all. I have had 2 YouTube networks where I have went negative while working on it for 10 hours a day as well as uploading a lot of Game hacks on YouTube getting a few dollars per day from PPI. What made me able to risk 100% of my income is the fact that I live at home (I am 17) so that is a huge advantage of starting early - as well as I haven't really lost anything if this goes back to $0. I started with $0 and I had a blast. This year, I am fortunate enough to be able to support two people and help them put food on the table for their families (as well as making my process easier for me), they work for me for 6 hours respective 10 hours a day. I am looking a lot forward towards what other ventures I will enter in the upcoming years and what the future have to bring in general. It does not matter how much you have on your bank account right now, how old you are nor anything about your background. If you take action, you should be successful. If you say that you have tried all the methods on here, you are just not fighting enough to make money because all of the methods on here can be scaled as well as solid start capital methods. I picked a $5-$10 day method and made some money, which helped me fund the first Amazon site. I don't really know what I have written right now, I hope it was useful for someone at least.
