    I've been browsing BlackHatWorld for a little over two months and I think I'm ready to start my own journey. So far using a few techniques I discovered on BHW I've made about $150 since the beginning of the year with pay per install, and that's the money I have to invest.

    My overall plan:
    Get 10 Facebook and Twitter accounts with a decent amount of friends and followers (5000 each?)
    Get a few Pinterest with a nice following, and same for Tumblr, though I'm not sure of any good methods to grow these accounts, I'm only familiar with Facebook and Instagram.
    Build an ecommerce blog for my niche with wordpress and monetize it with Adsense

    What I've done so far:
    Chosen a somewhat popular niche that has a low competition
    Got around 100 followers on 1 twitter account
    YouTube channel with about 100 subscribers (what could this be used for?)

    When I say nothing in the title I mean I have virtually no current social media following, blog, website, etc.

    I don't have much experience with owning a blog, but I intend to spend as little as possible, writing my own articles and managing it myself. I have a coupon from GoDaddy for 50% off a domain and will use WordPress for the blog, though I'm not sure what to call it.

    I've never done an IM journey or regularly kept something like this up, so I hope that the community here will keep me positive as I do so.

    Best wishes to you on this journey! Will be watching your thread so I could learn more about monetizing with Adsense.

    Update 10/3/16

    Created a second Facebook account this time as a female, with no partial nudity, and uploaded a few random pictures, and started to send some friend requests.

    When I get 100 friends on each account, or more than 150 on one, I will start to create my blog, and put fake dates on some of the articles to make it seem as if the blog has been around for a while.

    Last night I made 30$ from my Youtube channel, and the video got removed shortly after. It got traffic quite quick and I'm not even promoting that for this journey, I don't want to promote that niche since it is something that Youtube would remove quickly.

    Invested: $0
    Profit: $30

    People flagged it for a virus, because of the installer from my PPI network.

    Update 10/4/16

    My second Facebook is doing quite well, and am already at about 100 friends. I will continue to add a little bit of people per day on each of the accounts until I get to around 500 friends on each.

    Invested: $0

    Best of luck to you, seems like a solid plan.

    Just 1 note, adsense isn't really the most profitable monetization method so make sure to collect contact info from the visitors (offer some free report / ebook / whatever) and send them related offers (or at least send them to your other articles). Otherwise, you'll be leaving a lot of money on the table.

    I will be advertising a few amazon products with my affiliate account for some more money, and my target audience is one that would likely use gift cards a lot, so to get their emails I'll offer free gift cards or something similar.

    Update 10/6/16

    I've decided to stop adding friends on those two accounts for a day or two as not to look suspicious and give Facebook a reason to block my account, I'm inching closer to the 250 goal on my second account but its harder on my first account since it is not a woman.

    I made about $1.50 off a Blogger website I forgot I had, it's about coffee cups for Thanksgiving, so there's a free niche if anyone wants it, last year I made $7 from it.

    Invested: $0
    Profit: $31.50
