    Hey guys,

    Just a bit of a background on me:

    I've dabbled in almost every way to make money online {IM, adsense, PPC, youtube, blogging, stock photography, eBay, craigslist, iphone apps, facebook apps, share cash, content lockers, (you name it, I've tried it)}

    In the grand scheme of things, I've made a decent amount of money online but nothing that was every consistent and definitely never anything worth bragging about.

    I'm currently 17 years old, and I've known about bhw for a couple years but only recently have I became a member.



    There are a few reasons why I decided to keep this post:

    (1). I see plenty of "journey" threads on BHW and makes me extremely frustrated that no one ever ACTUALLY follows through... in fact, most people stop posting after like the third day. I just want you guys to know that I am here to stay, I will continue to post daily updates until I reach or surpass my goal.

    (2). Motivation. I need a driving force that will keep me motivated throughout this haul... I figured that I won't want to let down my fellow bhw members, so I'll continue to push forward no matter what kind of success I'm having.

    (3). Time. I have all my time to dedicate to this goal. I won't be enrolled in school for another 6 months, so until then I have 10-14 hours a day to put into this.

    (4). It will act as my journal. Not only will this post keep me motivated, but it will act as my daily journal, so I can go back and see what I did on any certain day.

    (5). Advice. I'm hoping that some of you will be able to give me advice as my journey continues.


    This post will not be limited to IM, I will include anything I do online that was done to "make money".

    Each day I will come on BHW and add my daily stats of what I did, and how much money I made. With that being said, Good luck to me.


    Day 1

    - Created two youtube videos (both promoting clickbank affiliate links)
    - Purchased two $25 Fiverr gigs (6 day Full Monty SEnuke blasts)
    - Purchased 10k retention YT views for each video ($7.99 ea)

    Today's Earnings:$0
    Total Spent:$63.98

    Day 2

    My youtube views (that I bought yesterday) were WAYYYY over delivered
    - Not sure why-- but one of my videos has 100k views and the other has 50k

    I searched my keyword for one of my videos on YT and was surprised to see it was the third video that came up on youtube!!! This is huge!
    - Unfortunately it isn't showing up on Google yet... but that will come with back links

    Both of my affiliate links for my youtube videos are done through bit.ly so I can track how many clicks they are getting...
    so far vid 1 has (11 clicks) not too shabby
    while vid 2 only has (3 clicks)
    No sales so far for either video

    I'm thinking about buying GSA so I can drip feed some back links to both videos

    Alrighty, enough of results-- Lets move on to what I actually did today

    1) I deposited the minimum amount ($200) into my account on Lead impact... I'm going to start doing PPV. No idea for what... but I'll find something... May have been a stupid investment lol but at least it will force me to experiment and learn about PPV

    2) Created a fiverr acount early this morning, created three gigs, and I already got 9 orders!!! All of them required me making a video of some kind so it was quite time consuming, but hey (9 x $4profit = $36)
    --- I suppose I'll leave the fiverr gigs up... It will make me a little bit of money each day.

    3) I've been subscribed to 7878's post about his offline money-making strategy for a while now and I finally decided to take action today! I compiled a total of 10 letters and dropped them off at the post office just 15 minutes ago... In 3-4 days, I will give all of these business that I sent a letter to a follow up call. (really I'm just experimenting with this)

    That's all I've done so far... however, Its currently 11:50pm and I probably won't go to sleep for at least a couple hours... I'll either come back and add it later or just include it in tomorrow's post.

    For the record, I also made $2.10 on adsense today (just from my youtube acct)

    Today's Earnings:$38.10
    Total Spent:$200 (now this money wasn't really "spent", just deposited into an advertising account)

    Looks interesting. I'm following this thread :)

    Your fiverr success makes me think that you'd have some tips for setting it all up there hehe

    Honestly, I don't have any specific tips... I would say quality sample video, and high quality audio is what got me orders. Not to mention, I think I picked the right niche with "testimonials and product reviews"... I feel like that's what most people who are buying on fiverr are looking for.

    Day 3

    CALLING IT A DAY! Phew! I've been sitting in front of my computer for about 10 hours so far today... I didn't get that many things accomplished, but I definitely learned a lot.

    Also, I may have to buy myself a more comfortable computer chair lol... my back is killing me :)

    Anyways, lets first talk about some results today...

    SOOOOO no clickbank sales yet :( but one of the videos has 34 clicks!!! which is great, but like I said, no sales.
    The other video only got like 2 clicks today... kind of disappointing, but at least I know which one is working better.

    Fiverr is amazingly still pulling through, 8 orders today (8 x $4profit = $32)
    once again, these gigs are quite time consuming but its the only steady money I have at this point, so I will let them run.

    As far as adsense on my youtube videos... didn't break a dollar today
    :eek:

    Also, I didn't mention this before, but I was waiting on approval for my Istockphoto.com application... got an email today: DECLINED. Oh well, I can resubmit my application in a couple days with 3 new sample pics.


    Moving on to what I did today...

    First off, I recorded a bunch of fiverr vids (time consuming and frustrating as hell)

    After that, I watched all the tutorials I could find on youtube of GSA search engine ranker... finally decided to buy it once I knew how to use it. It cost me $89 with the BHW discount.

    After I downloaded it... it took me a couple hours to actual set up and get my project right to drip feed back links to my youtube video that has 34 clicks so far. Hopefully I can get that video ranked high on google for my key word. Tomorrow I will probably start a project for my other youtube video even though its not doing so well.

    Okay... so after I finished up messing with GSA, I decided to move on to CPA (I read a lot about it on BHW)

    I followed some guides here on BHW and applied to about 8 networks. I'm already accepted to two :)
    the two are Maxbounty and Adworkmedia...

    I heard some bad things about Maxbounty, so I might stay away from that.

    With my new acceptance into Adworkmedia, I picked out an offer and made a youtube video for it. Not sure if it will work or not, but I was eager to get a video out for a CPA offer. Didn't have any money in my paypal so I couldn't buy any views though...

    Someone also gave me a really good idea for offline CPA that I might try tomorrow.

    Moving on...

    I CAN'T FIGURE OUT LEADIMPACT FOR THE LIFE OF ME! I still have $200 in my account, and I tried setting up a campaign with 4 keywords (my bid is $0.20 per) but I haven't had a single impression yet??? something is going on... First of all I don't know how to use this website and second of all I have no idea what to promote lol. I suppose Landing page + CPA offer might be good for this (PPV).

    As far as landing pages, does anyone know of a good thread that talks about how to make a good one?

    And if anyone has advice for LeadImpact, I would love to hear it.

    I'm always available on skype: appleshowyou (add me)


    Today's Earnings:$32.61
    Total Spent:$89

    Day 4

    Alright, it's 1:38am and I'm about ready to go to sleep. It's been a long day...

    I didn't get too much done as far as this journey goes because I had some other things to take care of.

    Nevertheless, here are some results:

    Vid 1 affiliate clicks: 61
    vid 2 affiliate clicks: 8
    Sales: 0
    adsense: $0.83
    fiverr: 2 orders ($8)

    Results for today were pretty depressing... I finally decided that directly promoting a clickbank product from YT wouldn't cut it. I'm getting the clicks but not one single sale.

    With that being said... I did some further research and decided that content locking with CPA offers + youtube would be my key to reaching my goal. I also came up with a genius idea that I don't believe anyone else has tried (so I will keep it a secret).

    Anyways, I went ahead and purchased Content Locker pro v2.0 for $97... I bought a domain and set up a wordpress website with hostgator for $22. I needed both of these for the method that I'm going to try tomorrow.

    Also, I've been running GSA for my youtube vids... its been a struggle to get verified links for my projects because with youtube videos you have to check "only verify exact domains", so I've only gotten 70 verified links for one of my projects.

    Well, today sucked. Tomorrow should be a big day though... looking forward to it.
    I plan on uploading at least 3 videos tomorrow with my secret method for my secret niche lol... I will link people to my website where I have content locked, and hopefully I can make some good money from these CPA offers.


    Today's Earnings:$8.83
    Total Spent:$119
