Hey guys, I'm a college dropout. No, JK... hahaha. Anyway, it took a bit of brandy and some deep soul searching before I worked up enough balls to start this thread. I'm not new to SEO or IM as I've been doing this sort of work for the past 4 years. The only problem was I wasn't doing any of the work to build something for myself. Most of the IM work I did was to help other people build their empires. I guess what I'm saying is... It's my time! What I've learned throughout the years is to keep it simple, and that's exactly what I'm going to do with my journey. My plan is to build a niche authority site and promote it through Instagram/Twitter/etc... Of course there are work to be done on the SEO side, but for simplicity sake, I'll keep my updates specifically to just IG and my authority site. Tasks I've already finished: 1. register a domain/hosting/wordpress 2. 4 IG accounts - 2 in niche specific, and 2 in niche that I believe will be viable for cross-marketing 3. Warmed up the IG accounts (ie, posted some scraped pics, followed, and liked) Planned tasks: 1. Test out Instagress after my IG accounts are at least a week old 2. SEO-ify my authority site 3. Rest/workout/lift/go to my day job Goal: 1. 500K followers on each IG accounts by end of June 2016 2. $300/day passive income by end of March 2016 3. Scale my IM venture I'm dedicating 5hrs/day to this. That means, in addition to working my day job (8+hrs), I will be waking up extra early and perhaps going to bed very late at night. Here's to all you wonderful people on BHW.
