    So I've decided to keep myself focused I shall try and stick to a Journey in 2015.

    Niche: Gaming
    Start: February 2015

    The plan is to create a Gaming News website based around Major League Gaming and other gaming platforms but providing the main Console and PC gaming news also. I'm going to try include everything and hopefully one day I will have so much stuff to do I will be forced to employ somebody and go down the offline business route with Apprenticeships and Business Loans. Suppose one day I could rent a house for an actual Professional Team of CoD Players..

    I will create 3/4 'CoD Players', upload a couple of fake free blog websites, Youtube, DailyMotion etc all linking to the main accounts. I have been growing these Social Profiles in the Gaming niches for nearly 6 months in anticipation of this Journey so most of my accounts are already quite well known. I shall introduce the introduction to Twitter and try and recruit some Youtubers/Trickshotters looking for a new way of being promoted. They will join my CoD clan and create Videos for my Youtube and DailyMotion Channels - leading to adverts and original video content for my website and Video websites!

    How Will I Make Money?

    Professional Gaming is everywhere right now, since Twitch sold for $$$$ everybody knows that you can become big from Youtube, Twitch and now even DailyMotion offer Livestreaming services. EVERYBODY (may be a lie) LOVES GAMING, whether you're on a solid run on Fifa or a mother in desperate need of shutting those brats up.

    The kids love the fact that with a bit of Photoshop and Video Editing software people are actually becoming known. They will buy anything - Fifa Points, Shoutouts, Twitter Followers, Fake Twitch Followers/Viewers Graphics and 'Professional' Gear. - endless ideas.


    • Sell Twitter, IG, Facebook shoutouts
    • Adsense
    • Featured Articles on 'Upcoming Youtubers' (The Youtuber will promote my website/youtube for me)
    • Dropship cheap items for Console/PC and Technology
    • Adverts on Videos on my website
    • Amazon Reviews
    • Affiliate for Fifa Point Sellers or Become an eBay Affiliate

    TO DO LIST


    • Finish Wordpress Design, Content Adding
    • Auto AddMeFast points so that I can have a swift start with Social Links.
    • Explore Youtube, DailyMotion and manually create as many Social Profiles as possible.
    • Use IFTTT to automate as many Social Media profiles as possible.
    • Add as many news articles as possible for the first few days under 3/4 different Authors.

    With this Journey there are so many different roads I can go down to become eventually become a successful venture.

    Will update every couple of days to update in my progress :)

    Good luck with your journey!

    As a general suggestion, don't focus too much on AdSense (website AdSense, AdSense for videos is fine) because from my experience CPC is shit in the gaming niche - I think you can do much better with the other monetization methods you mentioned :)

    Interesting. It will require some hard work, and I hope you won't give up.

    Even if your original plan does not workout perfectly along the way the greatest thing you will gleam out of this journey is the knowledge you will gain from trying and failing.

    Good Luck

    So, I'm back again. I've built my website and am currently just copy and pasting news, reviews etc to my website. Because I'm focusing on Social Media I don't know if it matters.

    I bought a package from somebody over here on BHW called the Combo Ultimate Package. So I now await the slow in pour from my keywords.. hopefully!

    I'm quite busy with it all hence the rushed sentencing. My twitter accounts are buzzing and I've got a few retweets from big names in gaming.

    $0.30 adverts earnings
    $0 Amazon

    I continue.. :)

    So I have created all of the Social Profiles. Got a few shoutouts.
    I looked through my ahrefs account today and realised that I have a website on my HTTPs version that I haven't uploaded, nor have I authorised this. How can I get rid of this website does anybody have an idea?
