    I know $5 a day won't pay for shit in a United States college since it's so fucking expensive here but I'd much rather start with a goal of $5 a day, rather than an un-realistic number like $100/day. That's too crazy for me because I struggle to take the first step, and take action.

    --Little bit about me--

    I'm 18 years old from the United States. I haven't worked a day at a "real" job in my life. I've only made maybe $75 from my entire IM career of the past 3 years. I only have about $1,000 to my name. I would love to get a real job but I'm so damn picky of where I want to work, and I live in the country so there isn't much out here... I'm a senior in High School, and I graduate in a few months. I plan on taking a year off of school to travel with friends and family then go back to school.

    --What I have--

    - A brand new website focused on EDM news, songs, etc.
    - An Ecommerce site that I resell SEO services (Don't even use this site)
    - YT channel with some videos aimed for PPI
    - About $1,000
    - Dedication

    I will be doing any type of method I can do. Only problem is I procrastinate and over think things way too much, and eventually just give up. That's why I'm making this journey! Get some tips, advice, and motivation from all you great people here! I hope you stick with me to the end of my journeys. Once I complete my $5 a day achievement, I will create a new journey but with $10, then $50, etc.

    Let's just take this one step at a time!

    Thank you all for reading! :)

    Go get a real job for once in your life. It will give you appreciation for internet marketing, and will get your 5 dollars a day out of your head.

    How is $100 a day not realistic?

    Definitely word on that.

    And yeah, you should NOT jump from method to method. Just choose one that you think sound good, and make it work. Whatever method it is, you could make money with it. :)

    Thank you, I appreciate the kind words!

    It's not realistic for me personally because I don't know what to do, when to do it, or how to do it. I over think things and don't take action as much as I should. I don't know what will work best for me unless I take action

    Believe me I'd love to. But I live in a tiny town, no car, and no jobs available at the moment.

    Okay, but that's chill. I'm pretty much in the same place as you, but I got a summer job at some building sight, and I never wanna do that again haha. :)

    I believe you can make some money from nothing, there are many people on this forum who have done it, including me.

    Cheers and good luck. :)

    While going to college I pushed shopping carts in a Target parking lot in the middle of winter. I ate nothing but Ramen noodles for months and put everything I had into IM. I had to make it work. You have to go in with the attitude that you will NOT fail no matter what.

    Good luck man.

    Thanks man, I appreciate it. Maybe I should have more of a positive attitude. I understand your pain with winter. In my state it gets as low as -45 sometimes and I feel bad for all my friends who have to push carts in that weather just to make a paycheck.

    First : Ttry to get a real job - taht will give you a stable income source which will increase your IM inventory for more investment and serious projects.
    Second : IM , make a blog and monetize it , either write article or autoblogged it.
    Promoting other's product and even your own product is a long way go , better go for content monetization . The fast way , once you have more money invest more and earn from it.

    First Thing , you are lucky because you are from US and people there have good opportunities, few people make like 40$/hour working in an restaurant , why don't you do that instead of making 5$/day ?

    I have a website about EDM music that kind of acts like a blog. I try my best to post at least twice a day on that.

    I live in a very small town, with school on my hands, along with no source of transportation. People making that kind of money would have to be like management position or working in a big city that would give you a shit ton in tips. I wouldn't mind doing that. But nothing is available around here.

    I'm not quite familiar with ORM. I'll have to do some research on it. Thanks for the suggestion! :)

    Day 1​

    I uploaded 3 videos to my YT channel for PPI. I sent 2000 HR views to each of the 3, and now we just sit and wait to see if I can make something from them.

    In other news one of my videos I uploaded about 4 days made me some money. I got 6 installs from that video, I sent the same 2000 HR views to that one as I did to the other 3 videos. So I'm hoping within the next week I can start seeing some installs from the newer videos. But only time will tell.

    Earnings: $1.69
    Expenses: $4.50
    ----------
    Profit: $-2.81

    good luck with your journey bro :) hope you get successful ;)
    I would suggest you to go with one method in the beginning, no need to use 2-3 methods. Just use one and put all effort into it. :)
