Hello BHW! It's been a while since I've shared with you all. Some of you may know me already and some don't! That is ok, I'm not here to talk a lot about me. I am here to give something back to the community! For those of you that followed my recent successful Journeys such as this one Code: [URL]http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/black-hat-seo/286530-back-200-day-journey-follow-me.html[/URL] Just In case you wondered why I stopped Updating that one. Well, is because I moved on to bigger projects that I will share with you in a bit. Firstly, let me tell a bit aboutmy background and what I've done to put where I am today. I am not gonna claim I am guru or that I make a fortune, but I believe I make enough to stay happy and buy whatever I want whenever I feel is needed. At the end isn't it freedom what we strive for? If you answered yes then online marketing is one of the places you could find this comfort. I started in 2009 with Sharecash while looking for ways to make online. Not happy with how much money I was making, I figured out that sharecash did use Adscendmedia to make their money. So I jumped out and cut the middle man and went straight here the money was coming from. Then I discovered BHW forums, I felt with it with the vast of information tat people where willing to share with the world about different methods to make money. I've spent countless hours reading journeys, methods, stories and many other applicable thread that will help me get on my own feet. I did learn a lot from reading, however never did take action on many of these methods. But It wasn't because I did not want too, I just wanted to feed myself from because I knew one day they will be useful. I joined the World of Youtube Content Creation all due that I was lucky to meet with a few Partnered Youtubers. The money that you could potentially make from being a partner is not what attracted me! No, you don't that much money from youtube unless you are big but you still have to work your ass off. What attracted me how much traffic you can generate from it? Subscribers base, Passive views and so on. And I am not talking about just making one video to promote an offer and then hoping to make good money in a short term. I am taking in a long term as a Youtube Partner. Anyways, taking what I've learnt from online marketing, I helped one of my YT friends to grow from 60k subscribers to nearly 700k subscribers in less than a year. Although he started making good money from Youtube, I didn't think it was enough. I had to push it into selling his own products related to his channel content. Successfully we manage to create a $35k-$40k per month business and still growing as we expand. From there I took advantage that as we grow in traffic,that these could be monetized even further. Drove the same traffic to website and social media to sell advertising. Now You might be wondering why I am shoving these on your faces? I am trying to make a point. There is no exact method/secret to make a successful business. I how you play your cards and how creative can you be. How do you plan it and how well can you execute it. Let me share a story about a SEO service I sold this past week that you could apply: I had a friend referred my SEO Expertise to a Paralegal Biz. The guy called me based on my Online Presence Growth and invited to talk about services over dinner. This is what I did, I told straight out what he needed to do, why he needed it and how is it going to be done. I had confidence that he wanted the service. I made a proposal for him at $350/month with Backlinking, PPC Management and Website Maintenance and he took it. He paid me 3 months upfront. Now I don't have time to be doing most of it. So I hired someone to do the same service and half the price. Except the PPC and Site Management which they are a joke to manage with only a few hours a month. Networking with people is really important, specially with people within and out the same business. Why? Because Most of your ventures or sales will come from that. Take it from somebody that appreciates networking cuz without them there would be no way I will be able to connect to even bigger fishes. Through them I was to land a deal with Coke... If you have any questions on regard to this thread or anything else then feel free to do so. I'm Open to help as much as I can.
