    This is a message to all of the younger BHW users. I know there are a lot of us here!

    High school is, by far, the most gossip oriented time of your life. You know that when one person does something, everyone has to do it.

    I am currently in college, however, I started my BH marketing venture when I was in high school. It was here that I realized the power of social media and viral content.

    I created a website and posted made a FB fan page. I created a fake account for an imaginary person in my town. I invited about 25 people to the fan page, and left it.

    Overnight, it caught on. The next day in school everyone was talking about it. That night traffic boomed.

    The traffic was short-lived, but enormous. I had around 3000 uniques every day uniques for about 3 weeks. Attention to the website died down because of it's
    nature.

    I made huge profits, however, I could have made more. This was one of my first ventures and I learned a lot.

    Moral of my story:
    If you're in high school, play off the idiocy of your classmates. You know more than them about the internet. Go viral, go big, go bank.

    If people are interested, I might open up some JVs in the coming weeks to work with high schoolers to do the same as I did.

    Hopefully this encourages someone!

    cool
    atm i'm in highschool too(or at least the german version of it^^)
    it'd be really great if we could work together in the future, i also already got some IM/BH experience, but never had some major success, unfortunately.
    well, would be nice if you could let me know what you think about working together...

    I've been out of high school for a few years, but I use to create fake accounts and talk to girls that I went to school with. I would then send them a 'picture.exe' and hack their computer with the Trojan. This was long before MySpace or anything social like that.

    It was a lot of fun. I found out some very interesting things watching these folks. :)

    I think those days are long gone.

    So my moral to the story, is enjoy the opportunity while it is there. Do not do anything that you will later regret, but be mindful of the opportunity you have been presented with.

    Sorry, no JV chances here...

    I would have paid huge bucks (at least $200 back then) to find this site when I was in HS (but it wasn't around).

    The young folks of today really have amazing opportunities to do very well if they take this serious and run it as a legit business. There is money to be made and I'm glad to be part of it.

    College is good as it teaches you life lessons but the school of hard knocks is also one that cannot be beaten.

    I'm a senior in high school now. I'm trying to set up a bunch of micro niche sites for passive income while I'm in college.

    Hey I can't PM you/find your email because of my post count (long time lurker and first time poster). I have a lot of time on my hands with no idea where to focus me efforts so I'd love to JV with you. I'll be finishing HS this year and I've got multiple facebook accounts/twitter accounts with hundreds of followers/friends. :3

    I too am a highschooler! Currently in my sophomore year. I found BHW half way through my freshman year and have learned quite a bit since then. Still consider myself to be a noob.

    OP would you mind telling us what sort of things you were doing to get profits?

    If I had found this forum 2 years ago when I graduated I would never have wasted the 8k I did on college....I hate thinking of all the things I could have done with that money! Instead I spent all that money to "learn" almost nothing new lol but I guess it just depends on how much you apply yourself and the quality of the schooling!

    I would have loved to have invested that 8k and be seeing some nice ROI's lol
    but you live and you learn!

    Anyone have suggestions on how to make sales, I'm willing to work with people / partner if they see potential in what I have, of course for a % of revenue

    Hi,

    college days are long gone and I already miss university. That's why I am here in BHW. When I have the money rolling I will study some interesting shit that won't make you any money in the real world and I will party all night again.

    But till then do you know guys who would like (or at least are reliable and will) hand out flyers for cheap?

    And are US students (college/university) interested in commission based jobs such as selling websites to local business owner for a minimum of 50 bucks in commission?

    If you have questions about what and what might not work with German students feel free to ask.

    -Gerd
