    Goals of this journey:
    • Get more motivated than ever. Put EXTREME ACTION on working hours per day. 12h+++
    • I'm currently earning steady $40/day which is way more than I need to live well in my country. I need this boosted to $200+/day
    • Lose 20 kilograms (Around 44lbs). Shocking yeah, but been there, done that. Can do it again. (aka. start the gym again)

    I want to get where I used to be a few years back - $200/day+.

    My previous journey thread went nowhere as there was not much interested which in fact bothered me. After all my online store (the journey was about it) earned around $7,000+ before it eventually got penalized with latest Google updates. Not important, but I'm quitting SEO for good. It is just not for me. Social media and Media buying are way better in terms of speed.

    What I will be doing?
    Mix of projects. Will give more details.

    P.S. I wasn't around the last several months, as I invested my time entirely into reading guides, studying IM in deep, and taking action where I can. After reading some IM guides that cost $1-4k each I can tell you guys there is information most of you don't even know it exists and is invented (there is so much more its unbelievable...). And no, I'm not talking about SEO, but overall conversion increase strategies, website layout, and how to sell on the Internet. Ive never seen most of this information never to appear on public forums. I also have been part of a unbelievably good (and expensive) private forum on Media buying where I learned A LOT.

    I hope you enjoy my journey. Updates will be regular, so don't miss out!

    With your earlier success, you'll have no problem building something bigger. Waiting to see what you can do.

    This is actually the secret to making lots of money online. Networking and forming a mastermind with like-minded individuals. I'm part of a few private forums and I definitely know which one you're referring to ;)

    I wish you the best in your journey.

    I probably invented the stuff anyways. Did you learn about the one with beer and nutella? Yup, that was all me.

    Jokes aside, good luck with the journey mate, especially the weight loss one!

    Well, i can surely help you with all of your goals. I can put you up on 3 Week Diet programme, just for 47$, and send you some affiliate learnig courses, that cost 700$, and have GREAT GREAT methods, that will get you 6752€/month EASY.

    But jokes asides, you got the killer combo of VERY PROFITABLE PART OF IM ( MediaBuying ) and ACTION taking. I have no doubt that you are going to nail this journey, so looking forward to seeing your progress. I would give you some tips, but you said you are already with great like-minded individuals, so i would just repeat what has been already said.

    Just to put fire under your bum... you have possibility to inspire alot of people, and if you mess up, you will probably destroy alot of people beliefs and ambitions of becoming successful IMer. SO YOU BETTA GET DIS RITE M8

    Thank you all who wished me good luck above. I can't quote you, as there are too many of you!

    Today I managed to put only about 6 hours of actual work. I'm counting only the effective working hours, as I want to reach 12 hours per day. By effective working hours I mean the hours that I actually worked, not just stayed on the PC. If I need a break to eat or do anything else, I stop my counter. Taking into account that I spent more than 9 hours on the computer today, it's quite shocking I only managed to have 6 hours of actual effective work. I can imagine previous days have been even worse.

    To boost my wasted time, I installed a plugin called "productivity owl" for Chrome. It allows you to block certain websites, and there is a little owl that gives you ridiculous messages when you try to enter into a blocked website. I love it.

    Now, I didn't made it clear what I'm doing and how do I earn money right now in my OP. I have 1 client for whom I'm doing media buying and conversion rate optimization (full hands-off service). The product is entirely new to the market in my country, and I was afraid it was too specific to make a good ROI. Thank god I was wrong. So far I have been testing huge amount of ads for a couple of weeks in multiple channels, and with all the tests I managed to make it on the break even. Now that I have plenty of optimized ad copies, and semi-optimized sales funnel I'm sure we can make it rain :p

    Optimizations never end, but since we didn't end up losing on the initial tests for entirely new and specific product, I'm really proud of myself. It gets some of my initial fears away, and it's getting me more motivated than every that I can sell anything :p

    Out of nowhere a guy approached me today, and we started talking. He has a website where he is selling items, and he asked me a few questions about media buys for his products. I helped the guy a lot, and as it was obvious he has money, I offered my services. I tried really hard to make a good impression, including showing him all of his banners and landing pages, and also showing him some of his competitors banners. Even though the guy really thanked me for all the advice I gave him, he said he was busy and wanted to talk with me later.
    I'm not sure if this was a polite way to say "no thank you, Im not interested in you running my ads" or if the guy was genuinely busy. Who knows, I will keep you updated :)

    Ok, just before go to bed I want to add something that's important. How to write killing testimonials

    Today, as I was browsing my favorite forum (BHW ofc lol!) I stumbled upon a website that belonged to one of our fellow members here. I won't mention his/her name, but something immediately got my eyes on it.
    The testimonials.

    Ok folks, most of you get the idea of the testimonials all wrong. This is also the reason some so called "experts" and "gurus" of today's Internet Marketing are blog about "Testimonials are dead" ; "Testimonials will never work again" ; "People no longer trust testimonials" and so on...

    If you ever find such a statement from somebody considered to be a pro, you have my guarantee, this guy isn't as knowledgeable or smart as he/others think he is. Okay that's cool, but where is the problem with testimonials?

    The problem is that many testimonials are faked, and even if not faked they are usually only 1 sided. What I mean is that you can't put a testimonial with a headline: "THIS CHANGED MY WHOLE LIFE" on pretty much anything. Even if your client actually said that - great, but don't let this be the headline of the testimonial. This is just wrong, seems as it is fake, and people don't bite it anymore. Even if it's true, such testimonials are on every second website, therefore people won't trust it, or worse - they will just skip it. In 2014 you have to be smarter than this.

    Okay what is the simple solution? (Always try to think of the simplest solutions, it's always the best solution)

    Let's say you receive a legitimate testimonial from a client of yours. Let it be something like this:

    "I've never used anything like X before, the whole idea was totally new to me, and first I was quite skeptical. The shipment came faster than expected, and a support lady kindly called me to ask if everything is alright - thank you for the great support! After using X for 3 weeks I didn't see any result and I was just about to give up. Luckily my husband George, who is a plumber, convinced me to give it another shot for a week or two, and wait before I ask for my money back. Luckily I kept on using X, and just a few days later I saw a magnificent increase in __-something-___. This simple product changed my whole life. I'm writing this letter to express my gratitude and...blabla"

    Ok, now what most of you guys do is the following. You take the part where the nice lady says "This product changed my whole life", you put it in bold and in quotes, and then place it as a headline. (Crowd saying Ooooooh...)

    What we have to do here is take the most dramatic part and place it as our headline. The part with the life changer is not dramatic. It's boring, it sounds fake, and people don't even bother reading further. Now, let's imagine I structured the testimonial as following (Imagine there is also an image of the client, together with her name and job title)

    "After using X for 3 weeks I didn't see any result and I was just about to give up..."
    "I've never used anything like X before, the whole idea was totally new to me, and first I was quite skeptical. The shipment came faster than expected, and a support lady kindly called me to ask if everything is alright - thank you for the great support! After using X for 3 weeks I didn't see any result and I was just about to give up. Luckily my husband George, who is a plumber, convinced me to give it another shot for a week or two, and then ask for my money back. Luckily I kept on using X, and just a few days later I saw a magnificent increase in __-something-___. This simple product changed my whole life. I'm writing this letter to express my gratitude and...blabla"

    What I did here wasn't anything mind blowing. Instead of taking the most flattering part and put it as a title, I took the most dramatic part and did the same. You don't see testimonials structured like this everyday. I guarantee you that this kind of testimonial inspire further reading. Just imagine being the client and reading this. (especially if the client is a woman)
    They can't just sit there and skip this testimonial. Curiosity is in our nature, and people would like to know why the frog we have placed something like this on our website.

    I hope this mini article helps some of you and inspire you with your next testimonial work. Even something so small such as testimonial can increase your conversion rates dramatically.

    P.S. For people who are starting out and want to write testimonials themselves. Don't overdo it. If you write 2-3 testimonials, you can make it sound different, but the more you write, the more the writing style will become obvious it is the same person writing it. Just get somebody else to do another 2-3, and so on...

    Yesterday I actually installed a stopwatch on my computer in order to better track the effective working time. Quite disappointing, even though I sit on my computer 10h a day, sometimes even more, I have a lot of stuff that can distract me.

    In order to further increase my chances against working hours, I installed the plugin productivity owl (as mentioned before). Today I spent 1 hour just to further improve my whitelist/black list.

    Nothing really big happening, except I still haven't went above 7 effective working hours, and this bothers me. I hope tomorrow will be my day to finally achieve it. Afterall, I'm aiming at 10+++ effective working hours. I think if anybody invest such amount of time in effective working, he can make money fast.

    Cheers
