    Hello everyone,

    I've been coming to BHW to gather knowledge, research techniques and approaches to FB ads, SEO, dropshipping etc etc.

    Soon I will be embarking on my first IM journey I currently own 3 IG pages with over 20K followers and I will be starting my first journey on a dropshipping store.

    Thank you and keep up the awesome job

    idk maybe you already have this mindset, but if you don't,
    the aim shouldn't be getting rich, it should be testing, finding a way to make money, then scaling it. master it and then scale it and move on to the next method.
    then repeat this cycle and remember if you aren't failing you are doing something wrong because the more you fail the more you learn the more you succeed.
    and develop a habit of work ethic, i was a lazy asshole just a few months back but now, whenever i wake up i tell myself ' today you will bear pain ' and since this is my goal, whenever i feel pain in doing something i.e; reading for hours, testing, thinking of other things,
    saying those words help me get through because i know i will go through pain today and pain is a GOOD thing over here. thats my main aim, not to make x accounts, but to simply bear the pain that comes with it.

    honestly i wish i had developed a work ethic much earlier i would've gotten results much faster, but since you're starting out, trust me you have to have the habit of working. that is the only thing that will make you succeed.

    here's a golden nugget thread:

    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/the-ultimate-blackhatworld-thread-repository.915304/

    recently the davdis355 posted a massive, value packed thread about SEO and if you're interesed in that, certainly give that a read, the best guide you'll find over here and, imo, the entire fuckign internet. so give it a read as well
    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/seo-guide-for-2017-building-and-ranking-sites.959735/

    it's not easy to make money online but it is easy if you develop a habit of bearing pain and working.

    another thing
    any ' money making ' method you find online, you need traffic. traffic is basically people, BHW has a million people coming every month i think, so those million people are traffic. and whenever you have traffic, you can monetize it. see the ads over here on BHW, the blue jr.vip tag? these are the few ways the owner of BHW makes money from traffic.

    there are sources of FREE traffic and sources of PAID traffic.

    your insta page has free traffic for example.

    BHW is free traffic because either people come here from word of mouth or search on google for something and reach here.
    traffic from google is free traffic, but you have to rank your website in google first. and you can't do that without any cost involved at the start. ranking in google is known as SEO. which this forum is all about!

    the free traffic isn't necessarily ' free' , it's only rare if there is little to no cost involved. but, with free traffic, the average cost can vary niche to niche. and the traffic only becomes free after a specific time is passed.
    an example of free traffic is ranking in google, you spend money in SEO and the cost may vary niche to niche, but once you rank for a speific keyword of a product or perhaps an informational term, you get quality traffic and you can either sell products on your site or perhaps put ads on the site.
    all your major social media platforms are also sources of free traffic but you have to build a following first. if you make a facebook page, you need to invest money to get likes and engagement. yes it can be done for free as well but it takes a lot of time. and even that would require some money for tools. an example of how people utilize facebook traffic is by creating a large amount of fake accounts and post affiliate product reviews or a link to their site in facebook groups. that way a lot of targetted traffic comes to your site/ affiliate link. and you make $$
    but it's a lot more complicated i suggest you search google or bhw for it. a good way of using google for BHW would be this command

    method site:blackhatworld.com

    or in case of facebook

    facebook method site:blackhatworld.com

    basically that ' site:webstie.com ' tells google to search for these terms in the specified site. you can also further use the tools section under the serach bar and tweak it if you want. i usually put in dates and sort by date later

    aside from facebook literally any traffic source can be utilized
    instagram
    twitter
    youtube
    reddit
    and so much more, there are tons of methods on how to do that over here on blackhatworld.com
    check out the journey section and you'll see what i'm talking about.

    so these are in a way ' free ' traffic sources, but again not necessarily a 100% free.

    now in paid traffic, you basically pay for viewers to come on to your site
    google has a paid traffic network called google adwords
    facebook has one too
    so does reddit
    so does youtube
    so do many others. yes these ' free ' platforms have paid options as well.

    but you should be careful with paid traffic, many people use paid traffic like this, they buy it and direct it to a 1 page website they build called the landing page and, have an email autoresponder set up, when the user sees an ad and clicks that ad, they are brought to the 1 page website and are offered a free ebook or summin, you type in your email, you get that free thing and then you are directed to a product offer. now you either buy it or not, you will be later in the future recieving emails about that product. this is known as email marketing and i have over-simplified it. usually people use paid advertising for big brand advertising, others use it for CPA offers, it's the same as the 1-page website thing i told you just now except you don't offer a product, but instead an offer for the user to complete. and, it's highly recommened that you have an autoresponder set up to collect emails on that 1-page site so that you can later promote products to that email. and not just promoting products again and again fuck no, you first give them value and then you slowly warm them up for the prodcut/offer and then offer it later. lots of email marketing tutorials on the net and on BHW

    people use paid traffic for dropshipping as well, you'll get to know it later when you serach about it. i have linked you that thread that has a lot of good and popular methods applied these days.

    tho since this forum is about SEO, many people use blackhat seo techniques to rank in google for just a short period of time and then they loose their rankings. they do this by blackhat SEO techniques and, although they rank for a short time, they make a lot of money during that duration. you can obviously do whitehat SEO for your longterm sites as well.

    again spend time reading and, have a work ethic developed. if you have that you'll learn and apply much much faster. there's a lot to learn and shit ton of failiure ahead because internet marketing is a big fucking field. be ready to lose money and have money to invest.
    a time will come you'll be banking hard. but before that time will be one fucking hard experience you will go through but it will be for the better.

    never. ever . give up.

    good luck ;)

    @speedhawk45 thank again for this valuable information. Question: I currently have a job that takes 40 to 50 hours from my time a week I will be putting the time and effort into this but can you give me an estimate on how much should I invest and let's say a dropshipping E-store and the marketing aspect?

    hmmm, so you have chosen dropshipping..
    well dear, thing is
    although i have yet to try dropshipping out, you need $$ to burn in FB ads and testing out prodcuts, it could take a thousand dollars for you to finally find a good prodcut. for dropshipping i'd recommend following ' franklin hatchetts ' youtube channel and join his group!
    join ben malols group and also there is a course of his in bhw download section.
    there was another guy but i don't really remember his name. but i think what i told you would be enough

    oh YES! check this guy and his joruney out, also his blog

    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/my-aliexpress-dropshipping-journey.776532/

    a succesfful journey AND he has his own plugin made for dropshipping.

    again don't know much about dropshipping, but what i do know is that starting out with instagram shoutouts is a nice way.

    i'd say don't invest until you have sound knowledge. and then invest in instagram shoutouts or the pages you are growing. and then, get prepared to burn your money. @Lunaaa , also has a journey thread, follow that and ask him for advice as well, he helped me out once and gave me quality info, very nice and cool guy.

    you know you should also search on google for
    'launch jacking '
    read don mazonas post which would be ' launch jacking done right ' and also read online dimes post about it.
    low budget but high ROI and it takes a bit of testing

    you can also
    buy a few low competition kw's here from a few sellers and try to spend your budget in buying hosting and domain and creating a website. for hosting i can suggest you @HudsonWebServices , great guy, great service. 100% recommend him. you can even check out my review on his thread. after that , rank the kw's by doing some SEO or outsourcing it.

    recently @davids355 posted a value packed thread about SEO, give that a read if you're interesed in that
    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/seo-guide-for-2017-building-and-ranking-sites.959735/

    time depends on you and how fast you learn. i can't quote a specific time but remember,
    the more you bear pain the better you will be at IM.

    good luck ;)
