    Welcome to my journey thread.


    In this journey I will start out as a complete Noob (fr33 c4sh pl3ese)
    that has gained as many information as possible in the last two weeks.


    I have learned a lot about IM and I am confident I can come up with a solid plan to bring me some cash.


    I do not have any real financial issues, I got two working jobs (not many hours though, they are just side jobs (around 20 hours a week)
    which pay me around $700 per month in total. It's a very low salary compared with the amounts I've seen on this forum.

    The work I do makes me fed up with life :cow04:, I get underpaid as I always have to work more than agreed upon and those hours aren't always getting paid.

    This had me looking for different ways to earn and I got here thanks to that. I hope that it was a quality find.

    I got around 5 months left before my new semester starts. In these months I want to get things settled so I would earn
    from IM. This means that I would try to get things going for me on semi-autopilot. I do understand that beginning is the
    hardest part of IM, but for me that is a challenge accepted.

    I plan to put in full dedication in these 5 months; this means around 2-3 hours a day and if by any means possible more.

    The actual reason i'm creating this journey is to keep myself organized and motivated,
    while at the same time give the community something to read and enjoy.
    Expect posts every 3-4 days to keep you guys updated.


    The Actual Game Plan (4/3/2014):


    First Stage/Ultra Noob Stage:proud: (one month total/earning goal = 100 dollars [ ]):

    As a start-up I'll be doing work for sites that pay for posts.
    This is really boring but I got to push myself and keep going.
    I know this won't pay a lot but it should get me some money to invest.
    Investing is key so at this point, so i'll be investing all the earnings I get from IM.
    At this time I will build my knowledge and try to find the perfect method that suits me.

    Second Stage/Evolving Stage:hmmmm2:(2.5 month total/earning goal = 1000 dollars in total [ ]):

    To get me going I will invest in micro niche sites with Adsense installed.
    I actually bought three sites from a service to give me a head start.
    This has costed me around 90 dollars. I hope to earn this back in the long run.
    On the side I will try out different methods including social media to support my earnings.
    I am still thinking about creating automated blogs and or forums. Clickbank is also something
    I will be checking into.
    Every earning will be invested at a 2/3 rate meaning I will hold one to 1/3 for personal use.

    Third Stage/Blossoming:weightlif(1.5 month total/earning goal = 1000 dollars a month [ ]):

    At this point i'm not sure where I would go. If I actually put in all the efforts I'd like to, I would be making some profits by now.
    I might have some money build up to go big with the investments. On that account I would try to maximize profits and go for the big fish.
    Still this thought is very optimistic and not very likely.
    At the end of this stage I hope I could cut down the time necessary for maintaining my sites.
    This is obviously because my school semester is back up and I need to put time into that.
    If everything goes right i'd be investing 1/3 of the earnings to keep 2/3 for personal use.


    Stage at this moment;
    First Stage/Ultra Noob Stage:proud:

    Profit at this point: $ -90 :17:
    Total hours spent at this point (reading hours excluded, pure working hours): 1.5h


    To make things clear; I am not doing this for information or methods. The challenge is to work things out by myself.
    That, I believe, is the best way to get useful skills for further projects and it should boost my self-confidence.
    Any helpful tips or criticism is always welcome as I am still improving every day.

    Thanks a lot man I hope we will both make some money in the long run! I am not giving up I told myself to at least expect ten months of no earning. So if it costs me that long so be it as I know it is worth the effort :)

    First update:

    I joined Postloop in order to make some startup cash.

    They rated me a 3.7 which means I need more ratings from other people.

    My grammar and punctuation is good enough so I am sure it will work.

    It isn't much but it is certainly a start!
    I mailed the service about my micro niche sites so hopefully I will get those soon.
    I'm off for today got a birthday coming up =).

    Good luck. If you give up, you are not only letting yourself down, but the rest of BHW! I believe :)

    You seem to be doing it right, just ensure to keep the content high quality and add all the necessary contact us and other pages which are required for Adsense so they don't just suspend you right away before sending your check.

    finally got to this point to post...it takes forever when you have a gazillion accounts over various media and you have to remember passwords and even usernames :/

    So, I can completely understand your situation. Where I am now is only slightly negative only because I actually made a sale on craigslist by scraping and autoresponding to resumes with a clickbank job bank type thing. I don't want to keep up with that though as it IS spamming or close to it. I mean the offer is related and doesn't come out of the blue, but you know d*mn well they want a "real world" job. I those jerks at craigslist didn't change their software, I'd be able to post with an image and link. I know you can post what you want if you actually pay for posting, but I wish I had some recent stats to see if the ROI were positive enough to justify it. Why don't *I* test some ads? Because I have about $200 in my bank account total due to not working for medical reasons for several years...but I'm not on here to whine about that.

    Anywho, while I don't consider myself an ultra-newbie due to reading and reading and reading over the years (more intensively during the past couple months), I'm sure no expert since I know the theory behind a lot of strategies. My strength is conceptualizing the project, my weaknesses are copywriting and implementing the work conceptualized. I've read things about everything you can imagine. Is there some kind of copywriting software out there? It would have to be free. I have tons of pdfs and software I've gotten for free, but nothing like that.

    I know I'm rambling, but I swear I'm not trying to hijack the original post :)

    To the original poster: depending on what you want to do, I probably have software or stuff to read on the marketing aspects if you can't find enough. I will tell you that I started with a more focused attempt at generating content through social media. I am using facebook, twitter, and pinterest to collect followers. I have over 1200 followers on facebook...unfortunately most are Turkish because I did a fiverr offer for $5. Even though the individuals are pretty worthless to me, as a group, it shows I have all these likes which I think is helpful in collecting more followers. They see 1200+ and think, "well, this guy must have some interesting stuff" and look more into my fanpage. Another negative is they're slowly unfollowing, but I've been making most of that up with my content attracting other followers. I stuck one or two offers in my numerous posts of images, videos, text, but none are making anything. I figured as much, but I wanted to see. Oh, did I mention the fanpage has only been up for 10 days? I know that's one of my issues. It's a waiting game...meanwhile I post more content I procure, and the quips I put in with the videos and images. Luckily, my niche, which is a bit large, is incredibly long on finding content; I even past viral content. What I need is functioning, free software to automate some of this posting. There's that, and I reuse a lot of the content when posting to other social media. One or two are linked to facebook. I know twitter posts what I post in facebook and I think pinterest too. I recently got accepted into group today. Within a couple hours I got a few new followers and several reposts.

    Why did I post all that? Just to give you and other readers who are new or kind of new ideas. That's how I get some of my ideas :) So, if you'd like, send me a private message and I'll give you one of my emails and we can talk and/or I can give you pdfs software you may want or need.

    -J

    Don't get me wrong I do appreciate u took the time and effort to write all this. However, I did state that I do not require any help. I would like people to criticize my plans and tell me whether I'm following a path which is achievable and more importantly profitable.
    So, I guess u just didn't read or understood what I meant. I do not get however why you post about something which is not relevant knowing this is a thread about my journey. I do feel like you are a sneaky guy trying to hook people up with your "free pdfs software". So I will report this post and hope it gets deleted. Please refrain from doing these kinds of things in the future.

    With the best intend,

    Zuenti

    Thanks for the useful advice ! Really appreciate posts like this. So is adsense likely to suspend me at any time? If I do everything by the book I won't have any problems right?

    Thanks a lot man. Posts like this give me the feeling that i'm not all by myself. Thanks for the heads up its really motivating to know someone is "rooting" for me.

    Thank you sir. The only time I will allow to let myself down is when i'm trying to move myself in my brand new car.

    Good luck with your journey though i think you need to learn make your own small niche sites there are lot of guides available on bhw and you cann download many from downloads section also in my opinion one has to start investing his time not his money

    Best of luck if you stay consistent lot of money is coming your way

    You are definitely right about this. I just made an impulsive buy to get me started. I will go on to create my own micro niches now as I really need to learn every aspect of it. Thanks for the post ;)
