Hi, Decided to start my first journal. I will show you how to create an authority, white-hat niche blog which will make at least $100/day December, 2013, possibly, if everything will go according to plan, $1000+/day. I just bought an apartment with cash from my previous ventures last week and have much free time and want to have fun with the community and run the thread to keep me motivated. The interesting part - we will do all this with hard work and almost no investment. Just a domain, cheap hosting and a few Fiverr gigs. Most content will be written by me, and some outsourced later. I will show you how to monetize a site properly and get traffic - social stuff, ppc, ppv, affiliate income, using newsletters, etc. As i said before, the journal is 100% transparent, I will post income and analytics screenshots weekly/monthly and will try to update this thread bi-weekly. Please post any questions in this thread and don't PM me, as I'm not trying to sell anything. The domain is: http://werepreneur.com it will be a tech-related blog with news and articles for entrepreneurs. The income will come from affiliate deals like hosting, saas's, amazon, adsense, etc. What I have done to date(last month - preparing the project): bought the domain - namecheap.com, $10 bought the hosting - stablehost.com, $5/mo created a google apps account created a facebook page and got ~1000 likes created a twitter account and got 17k followers created a google+ page created a mailchimp account created a wordpress.com account installed wordpress on the domain analyzed the project and planned the content strategy got a pro hootsuite account trial (30 day) The likes and followers were done manually using methods from BHW :> As for SEO, I'm not spending any money, everything will be manual, white-hat and organic. I'm just taking on free SEO giveaways from Jr. Vip like once a week just to help with indexing etc. (white-hat high PR links only). When the site will generate some income I will order a good white-hat SEO service in the ~$1000/mo ballpark. I will post at least 1 article everyday. 1 news article and 1 method/case study article (will try to post a good method everyday). I will work about 2 hours every day. 1 hour content writing, half an hour technical stuff and half an hour social interactions. As of now the site just has a hosting offer landing page so it would be indexed by Google, but i'm overhauling the site today to post the first news article. I will post more updates later like which plugin I use, etc. Visits: 0 Income: $0 Money spent: $70 (1 year of hosting + domain) Cheers.
