    Hi

    I am starting this journal as a way of keeping me ontrack in my goal of making $40k in 5 months. I find this way easier for me to keep track of what I am doing and how things are going. Hopefully along the way I can help a lot of people as well.

    A bit of background for you. I have been in internet marketing now for 4 years. Making a decent living out of it. I have decided that I need to take things to a higher level now.

    This is where this journal will work a bit different from other journals. I will not only target online marketing but will also be venturing into the offline marketing segment as well. I feel this is the way to make the next step.

    I am going to be starting with a couple of aged domains that have nothing on them and also a few new domains that have just been registered. The first step is going to be the online marketing to generate some initial investment cash first.

    I will also be using a lot of the black hat tools like AMR, Scrapebox, Scrapeboard, Xrumer, Sick etc

    I will post updates on a regular basis as things happen to keep you all up-to-date and also to make sure I am on track with the earnings.

    I will try to answer as many questions as I can for you all and keep this as transparent as I can without effecting the business.

    So lets start from here.

    Day 1

    Websites have all been setup
    backlinking with AMR and Sick is being done as we speak.

    Earnings today $0

    Yeah it is a lot but defo achievable. The online marketing is just to bring in some cash flow I expect that the offline marketing is where the money will be made, I made the target $40k but i really do feel this is on the low side of things. I expect with online and offline marketing it could be double that but one target at a time lol.

    I will be updating this regularly.

    This is what really pisses me of, online trying to crack it I couldn't make $40 a month online after 4 years of trying, got Scrapebox Market samurai and this guy comes along jumps straight back into it..

    Good Luck Man.

    Im retiring defeated.

    Don't give up that is how a lot of online marketers fail. You have to try your hand at everything you can in online marketing until you find something you can do successfully day in day out. You have to use more than just scrapebox and market samurai. Google changes everyday and you have to keep up with all that too. I am not saying it is an easy thing, it is a hard slog but all in all better than any day job i have ever had.

    Keep in there mate it will work out. You get out what you put in is my motto.

    Day 2

    Most of the backlinking has been done for the 2 aged sites. Today I am going to continue the backlinking for the 2 new sites. This will be done gradually and I am only going to be backlinking about 100 links a day. I have all the software setup to do this automatically.

    Today I will also be setting up the website for the offline business. This is going to take probably a couple of days.

    Day 2 Earnings - $0

    Will update again soon.

    Thanks

    Harry

    Day 3

    All the initial stages of the backlinking has been done for all the sites. The links have also been submitted to linklicious and these will now be left to be found for a few days. The 4 sites are now all indexed in google and just need the links to be found to get some movement on the listings.

    The offline business website is coming along nicely. There is a few things that still need to be done like the shopping cart needs to be integrated and the on page optimisation needs to be done. Then this business should kick off near the end of next week so hopefully should have some funds to report when that launches.

    So far the revenue to date is $0 but that is to be expected until the sites get listed high on google and until the offline business starts then things should start to roll quite comfortably.

    Any questions just ask away.

    Thanks

    Harry

    Competition differs between the product. I will get the stats and post them soon.

    At the moment it is clickbank and plimus. I will be integrating CPA in a couple of days as well.

    Will be keeping an eye on this thread, seems interesting.

    Could you provide us with some more information about your websites? What does the offline site sell?

    Yes, I too would like to get a little better idea of the type of offline product or service you feel will be the "money maker". Is it your product? Is it a CB or other type of affiliate product?

    Are your websites niche/product specific or more general category websites?

    Hey

    For some reason the forum is not allowing me to quote the above people but the majority of the answers to the questions are below -


    The online website are all cb products. The offline site is something that has been in the making for the last year. It is mainly gonna sell websites but with a bit of a twist. I will explain more later when that is fully operational.

    I can say wholeheartedly this thread is in for the long haul. If I do fail it really wont be by much. I would be very surprised if I dont hit the target before the deadline. I will keep you all up to date.
