    Getting Started

    Goal:
    $1000 per day after expenses (profit)
    Niche: Health/Medical
    Monetizing with: Amazon, Contentsponsors (outbrain etc), Adsense
    Traffic source(s): mostly Facebook ads but I may try some other stuff too
    SEO: Not at all

    Preparation:
    I registered the domain end of last year already but was always too lazy to set something up. I finally started last week and ordered some articles on iWriter, most of them at only $5 per pop (~700 words). You get what you pay for, but I was surprised on the good quality I got and had to make only minor corrections. I had to reject one submission because it was a poorly spinned article.
    I then made some changes to the theme (blog is running on wordpress) which I bought at themeforest.

    Plugins:
    Besides the plugins required by the theme, I installed these additional:
    Contact Form 7
    Custom Sidebars
    Disqus Comment System
    Facebook Open Graph, Google+ and Twitter Card Tags
    My Shortcodes

    Expenses:
    Themeforest: -$58.00
    iWriter: -$78.34
    Namecheap Hosting: -$47.80 (for one year)
    Namecheap Domain: -$10.87

    Everything was set up in less than 4 days from the time I started.
    I created 2 custom channels on adsense, one for a specific sub-niche I'm focusing on first and one for the rest of the blog (articles that don't have a custom channel yet). I'm using 'My Shortcodes' to insert the ads into the articles to make sure that sub-niche1 has ads from the custom channel only. As soon as a sub-niche has 4+ articles, I will create a custom channel for the sub-niche.

    I started to promote 2 articles from sub-niche1 a few days ago and turning in a good profit already. I'm targeting USA and Australia only at this time but I will set up some ads for other countries to test the waters. For tests I'm specially interested in traffic from 3rd world countries that you can get at cheap rates from FB and then try to turn them into profit.

    When I report here, I'm not going to split my profits into the single advertisers. Reports will be updated per week.

    Spent Ad-Income Profit
    Pre-Expenses -$195.01
    Week 1 -$245.89
    $283.37​
    $37.48​
    Total -$440.90 $283.37 -$157.53

    Good luck OP. Looking very very promising. Does outbrain works with adsense without any problem? because i think if google sees some of the outbrain thumbnail picture they might not be very impressed ( some of the posts thumbnail pictures are misleading ) if you have experience working with the both network at the same time, Please let us know .

    You should set a realistic target, like $100/day. Four figures per day from zero in 3 months sounds like mission impossible to me. Anyway, good luck.

    outbrain (and other content sponsors) won't be displayed on the same page as adsense ads.

    I had it set to $2000 per day first but I didn't want to get comments that I'm unrealistic. I know what I'm doing, trust me ;)
    Its also about what one can invest into advertising. As long as its profitable and scalable, the sky is the limit.

    Thanks a lot. I pulled $300+ in profits yesterday already. But that counts for Week 2...

    Thanks for the kind words.

    Thanks, don't forget to subscribe :)

    There is Possibility of 1k/day since you are using FB ads and you know what you are doing. Is the Profit this week all from adsense only? or amazon as well.

    Thank you. I'm pretty confident in reaching the goal.

    15 articles bought, only 1 written on my own.
    Week 1 displays only ad-spend and income. I should mention that I was testing first, setting up different ads until I got the best combinations. One day I was even in the negative with a higher ad-spend than income. Now that the first ads are running profitable, I can start setting up ads for other articles and optimize those until they are profitable.
    Since my budget is limited, I need to get paid by the advertisers before I can scale things up.

    I will... once everything is set I will take a break and lean back :)

    Nothing from amazon yet because I did set up amazon just today. But also not only adsense.

    Yes, I made experience with fb ads in the past...

    Thanks - subscribe (Thread-Tools) :)

    How on earth did you spend $0 on advertising and $0 on SEO and rake in over $200 from ad clicks?
