I’ve been a lurker on BHW for more than a year. I’ve read a lot, done a lot, and failed more times than Donald Trump's hair. Damn son. I found his brother. I’m that one kid in school that sucks at everything, but still thinks he's going to get the jackpot. So, I’ve decided if I’m going to build anything worthwhile, I may as well go all the way in. I mean balls in. So, this leads me to the topic of my journey. This is a journey about a kid that’s going balls deep. That's me. So, let's get started. What are you trying to do that requires your balls? I’m trying to build a multi-million dollar business with 100,000 active users in a fully autonomous, passive cash flow base making $1,000,000/day using AI and becoming Iron Man. At the same time. That moment when you have 6 interfaces and you only look at the box in your hand. Yep, you read that right. You now see why it requires a lot of balls to do. I have the setup to back it up, here’s how my current office looks: This just redefined multi-tasking. 10 different tabs all at once. Ok, you’re probably doing this by now: Jokes aside, although that would be an entertaining idea to juggle with, I’m a mere mortal and I have to work towards workable goals before I can become Tony Stark. And before I can work towards unattainable goals, I have to first build systems in place to get me there. So, I have to start with the basics. So, I have to build the "usual" evil master plan. Me planning out my master plan in detail. Here’s my evil master plan in detail: Get a kitten Buy a suit Take this picture Build my first affiliate site. Drive traffic to it. Retain Traffic Monetize Not so exciting huh? That’s because you forgot step #8. #8 is shower in money. That’s definitely how I look. I’m a red...crab that showers in money but can’t afford actual curtains. Genius. That’s the goal right there, boys - shower in money. If you’re not showering in it, you ain’t doin’ something right. But before we can shower in money, we’ve got to make it. So, let’s see how to execute each step of the “evil master plan.” The kitten and suit part are given. That’s a picture of me above, obviously. Let's get down to the other steps Build my first affiliate site Register a domain with a high traffic longtail keyword from google (I’ve already done this) Move the site over to your cheap 0.99/year host. (Yep, done this.) Slap a WordPress theme on the site and make it look sexy (working on this) Make it mobile and desktop friendly. Optimize it to load fast. (haven’t done this yet) Your site has to be like this: If you’re not fast enough for the big boys then you can’t shower in money. After building your site, it’s now time to drive traffic to your site with your new ride. Driving Traffic This is you should be plowing traffic to your site. Build Social Media Accounts (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Tinder, Etc.) (working on this) Start posting interesting content on these channels. (posting dick pics is not the way to go, frankly. Lesson learned.) (haven’t done this yet) Write engaging blog posts. Search up Keywords. Write good blog posts about those. (Note to self, never hire an indian again.) (haven’t done this yet) Do SEO magic. Do some of that SEO magic on-page, off-page, and that link building vodoo. (haven’t done this yet) Yep, this is SEO explained in one word - pizza. But you can’t eat the pizza without enough focus. So that’s why you have to focus on retainment. Retain Traffic Build an email list. Give them free pizza for joining and watch your list grow. Email that list constantly to remind them they didn’t get their free pizza yet. (haven’t done this yet) Study your audience. Do they like your content? Is the slice of pizza not good enough? Recook that pizza with a better ingredient than shit and you’ll get far. (Currently in progress.) Keep them coming. Make better pizza than anyone else. Remind them about it. Post about it daily. Be active. Post frequently and get your audience involved. This is time to pull out some Black Hat tools. Now, to the best part. The part we’ve been waiting for a long time... MONEY SHOWERS Leonardo Di Caprio Style, Baby. Monetize Before we can monetize, understand one formula. It’s the only formula you need for life. (Profits - Losses) / √pizza = Money Showers This formula will dictate which monetization method we will go with. Google Adsense. Slap some Google Ads on your site. Make your customers cringe on the sight of their favorite ads. (haven’t decided yet) CPA Offer. Find a good CPA offer worth doing, but if it ain’t paying enough to do money showers = poor investment. (haven’t decided yet) E-commerce store. If you find a huge demand for an item, build your own product and sell it to your own audience = maybe smart investment (haven’t decided yet) More to be discovered. As I go, there may be other novel ways to monetize but that will be saved as I go along. (smart way of saying, “shit, I’m trying to figure out”) Conclusion That’s it. If you read this far, you’ve just gone balls deep into my own post and I thank you for that. For that, I award you with your very own fantasy money shower: You’re welcome. And that’s how you get your very own money shower, boys. After I achieve that, I’ll declare myself as Iron Man and you’ll see my name around the world. Don’t attempt this at home unsupervised. Even supervised, don't do this. It's a horrible idea. The person undertaking this journey is nowhere near average or sane. It’s time, boys. It's time to live it large. It’s time I get my first money shower. Wish me luck. Don’t attempt this at home unsupervised. Even supervised, don't do this. It's a horrible idea. The person undertaking this journey is nowhere near average or sane. Update Schedule I will update this post once a week. I aim for once every Sunday. I will post updates on my progress on the front as I achieve each goal. I will also update the checklist for each section as I go along. I will try to answer questions along the way, but I'm learning as I go. So please forgive my ignorance.
