    He people. I've been doing active internet marketing the last 2 months and did a little before that. At the moment i took a year off to start IM and look if i can be succesfull with it. I've been studying Accounting the last 2 years and if i fail i will go back to school but i'm not planning on it.

    The Reason why i make this journey is because i believe in tracking numbers, analysing them, and getting better from them(the reason i've been studying accounting).

    How will i do it?
    I'm not really going to do 1 kind of internet marketing. On one hand its good to do one thing and specilize on it. On the other hand it's good to have multiple sourches of income. that's the reason why I want to diversify my strategies.

    Where i stand now.
    I rank my sites first with a M for moneysite and than a number.

    M1
    It's a webshop selling 2 kinds of items. a ?20 product and a ?50 product.
    My profit from product ?20,-- product is 35% and the profit from the ?50 product is around 50%.
    I've generated 280 revenue from M1 last month and i think the line will go to maximal 500,-- in revenue in following month's.
    KW1 2600 searches rank 44
    KW2 390 searches Rank 2
    KW3 210 searches Rank 1

    M2
    Site is dead. Not willing to work on it. not proud of it because didn't put much work on it and have better ideas now.

    M3
    This is an amazon stylish website. It reviews products from a range of ?150-?500. Site is online for around 3 weeks now i think. For some small KW's im between 8-20 on ranking. Others i'm 50'ish to 100+
    Most important KW i rank 37. Last 4 days the ranking went a little down.
    Only thing i will do for this site is stuff to make it rank better.

    M4
    Currently working on this website. I've currently made 7 articles for the website (600-1400 words each). because of webdesign etc. it's a bit time consuming. sinds all i have been doing is making a bunch of articles i'm getting bored of doing that so started with some webdesign. making the site look awesome like it should.

    After M4 i have 3 projects that i can start. All have potential. This will be on schedule. Depending on earnings it will decide how fast i can move forward.

    I believe in working to get better everyday. I track statistics everyday so i can compare days and weeks with eachother. My goal every week is to work a little harder than last week. Last week i worked 29 hours. This week i want at least 30 hours productive working. If you have any questions regarding tracking things. Managing projects or other stuff besides IM hit me up.


    31-10-2014 Update:
    Found a writer to write articles for me. Now have to figure out how much i'll have writen by others.
    M1- none
    M2 - None
    M3 - None
    M4 - worked on the homepage.

    Will update Multiple Times a week. (goal is everyday)

    Cool man, it's probably thrilling to drop outta school and pursue something like this, huh. But I do know that doing this would give you the motivation both internally and externally. Best of luck and hope you make it all happen.

    Thx Casanova (PU name?)
    It gives a ton of pressure, that is for sure. A friend of mine also took a year off to pursue his dream of being a pick up coach. But the pressure on him became to great which lead to the loss of productivity and more depression. Cool that we we're able to figure that out so now he is having time off so he can rest before going back to the grind.

    [Update]

    Probably have my first client :)
    Had some people over yesterday and one has his own business and got an SEO company that is failing for the last 8 months to rank him (they didn't do shit).
    Now he is going to make new site and probably have me rank it. So it's probably 200-1000 a month revenue from that one.
    Curious where this will take me..

    Only problem is that i have to figure some stuff out.
    1. Pricing
    2. Method of ranking

    Week Review.

    My Week went alright. I can't complain. I've worked 30 hours and 40 minutes this week which is 1,5 hour more than last week. So my goal to raise the hours worked got done again. What i've done this week is write a ton of articles. Worked on M4.
    Weekreview Journey.jpg
    M1:
    Didn't do much for this one. Ordered 2 fiverr gigs for it. Will see how that works out next week. I probably going to work on webdesign a little next week.

    M2: Project Closed

    M3:
    Got a friend of mine to help with the site this. the top 10 keywords collectively(is this the right word?) increased with 7 places. This is way to low so that's why ill have 10 decent links build next week and 10 after that. Will see how this works out.
    Visitors = Actually decreased from 54 to 40. Not to happy about this but will blaim it on the rankings. Visitors now doesn't really care to much
    Conversion = Need more data for this

    M4:
    Content is coming along. Will probably finish content next week and hope webdesign aswell for 80% so i can focus on other things.
    Rankings = Some KW's are indexing so this is nice.
    Visitors = Have not tracked this yet.
    Conversion = no affiliate links in place yet.

    Prospects:
    Got first prospect. Will go after that next week and have a good plan for him. I think i'm pretty able to rank him so we have to wait and see how it all works out.

    Summary
    Could have done more ofcourse but since my goal is to increase last weeks record im not that disappointed with it all.
    Curious what M3 will bring me and what the prospect will bring me. Probably long term partner for multiple project if i land him and get good work done.

    P.S. How can i make the picture appear bigger in the post?

    Websites

    M1
    Visitors (16): Increased again to normal level of between 15-20
    Unverified Revenue: Sale of last week still hasn't come in.
    Verified Revenue: another sale of last week came in +20
    Profit: --

    M3:
    Sales: Made none
    Visitors(6): raise from 3 again to 6. but still not even near what it should be.. rankings are needed

    Rankings:
    M1:
    Rankings dropped massively. But when i search it on google it isnt page 10+. So think it will be fine tomorrow.
    M3:
    Seen some drops of 30-40 places with KW 2 and KW 5. Curious if this is just flactuation. Will check tomorrow.
    M4:
    No changes

    Prospect 1:
    Worked around 2 hours for the prospect. The competition is not that easy. I think its Mid competition. Got no clue how long it will take for a brand new site to rank top 10 with this competition. Will investigate some more. If anybody got advice that's always welcome :) Screenshot is Prospect's Nr1 KW Journy 4-11-2014 Pic2.png

    Productivity:
    Worked atleast 1,5 hours longer than i did a monday last week. Happy about that and had good work ethic today. Worked on a article. Builded pages. analysed prospect's competiton, Got Market Samurai working again. That kind of stuff.

    First think of how much value does he get from your services and then come up with a pricing model that's based on performance.

    It might not be feasible for you to rank his website if he's selling "cartoon toilet paper" and only 10 people are searching for it, so make sure you analyze that kind of stuff, and also competition, before throwing prices.

    Product is around 100 a piece. 6 most important KW's have around 7500 searches together. CPC = around €1,--. Competition is medium

    [WeekUpdate]
    Hallo everyone, missed me? Haven't posted a lot this week, been busy but ofcourse made time for the week update.

    Work Ethic:

    I've worked a decent amount more than last week. So cheers to me for increasing work hours 8 streight weeks. I planned to take today off from work. But I just like to work to much for taking a day off. Just doesn't feel right. But will do it in the future.
    Work Ethic W8.png

    Websites (Ranks,Traffic & Revenue)
    M1: Site didn't do as good as last couple weeks. Only had 1 sale of ?20 so thats a little poor. The amount of visitors was regular though and the Rankings didn't change really. Will do some more backlinking so I will rank for some other KW's aswell.
    Traffic M1.png Rankings M1.png

    M3
    Rankings are fluctuation a decent amount the last week. Backlinks are ranking. Current TFCF = 20/35.
    Traffic was low and steady. Not really important because I can't really generate a ton of traffic without rankings ;). Still haven't made any money from the website which is to bad.
    Rankings M2.png Traffic M3.png

    M4:
    Website content and design is finished. Rankings haven't changed much so will work on that next week as stated below. Also need to set up the affiliate deals which i haven't done. Maybe I will wait with that untill it really ranks. Will see about it later. Also figured out that i could better start selling the products myself or using dropshipping only this needs an investment from my side and at the moment not in a good liquidity state for that.
    Rankings M4.png

    Next week Plans:

    The 2 things i will focus on the next week is on backlinking. (BL)Will do backlinking for M1, M3 and M4. (Clients)Secondly I will focus on current client and closing him. Next to current client I'm going to make a structure to generate clients. This will take some time but i'm sure i can manage to make a decent system. Maybe create a landing website for clients to give some information etc.
    - Generate Capital: Maybe will try to get a loan from family/friends for around 1-3k. Think that this will speed up my process. If i could generate some clients that would also be enough.

    Cheers everyone :)

    [Weekreview]

    Introduction
    He guys, I?m back. A little late but better late than never. First important thing is that I switched to Statcounter. Read it somewhere on BHW and I?m pretty happy with it. Now I check visitors multiple times a day to check how they are doing.
    - Switch to Statcounter

    Productivity
    With productivity I went from 36 worked hours to 37. Had a hard time because some things with friends came in between causing me to only be able to sleep 1 hour Friday. But I?m happy I actually managed to work even more than the week before. Didn?t came easy but fuck it. This week I want to go for 40 hours worked. Will always look good for my mother and father. I than can let them see I work as hard as they do. Which I was never capable in my whole life? got a lazy background haha.

    NOW LETS GET INTO BUSINESS!!!

    M1
    Rankings:

    The rankings went up for 3 KW?s and down for 1. Which isn?t a really important one. Most important fact is that I ranked #1 for most important KW (KW2). So now im #1 for 2 most important KW?s. Maybe try to rank the 2400 searches KW.
    KW Searches +/- Rank
    1 2400 4 18
    2 390 1 1
    3 210 0 1
    4 140 -2 24
    5 70 1 37
    6 50 0 101
    7 40 0 2
    8 30 0 9
    9 30 0 2
    10 20 0 101
    Profit:
    0,00 Profit. This is just pathetic. Got rankings, got traffic but sales stayed out. This means I have to adjust my website. That is what is on the planning this week to do.
    Work Done:
    Done some work on design, a little little bit. And done some ranking things.


    M3
    Rankings:

    Now this is something I?m the happiest about from last week. I?ve managed to increase rankings for 8/10 KW?s. Most important KW is now 2[SUP]nd[/SUP] page. So this is pretty good! With these increases I think it will 2 weaks to get some KW?s from my top 10 into the first page.
    KW Searches +/- Rank
    1 5400 0 101
    2 1300 23 16
    3 880 17 44
    4 480 0 101
    5 390 31 20
    6 320 29 43
    7 260 87 14
    8 260 4 9
    9 260 33 52
    10 210 49 46
    Profit:
    FIRST SALE! Owyea buddies! Now official a money generating website. Was pretty happy with it and now going to upscale it. Also going to switch deals so I make more, 5%+ instead of 2,5%. Will update next week about how that went. I?m also hoping on 2 sales this week.
    Work Done:
    Friend helped me with rankings and did some ranking myself. Invested some time and money and it payed off.

    M4
    Rankings:
    Rankings are still crap. Didn?t expect more of it. Found some other KWs that I am going to target. I also noticed the searches are going up in amount. I Think this website has a lot of potential!
    KW Searches +/- Rank
    1 22200 0 101
    2 2900 0 101
    3 2400 0 101
    4 1000 0 101
    5 880 0 101
    6 480 0 101
    7 390 2 42
    8 260 0 101
    9 210 0 101
    10 40 0 101
    Profit:
    ---
    Work Done:
    Got some backlinking done for this website. Made social profiles etc.

    Future Plans:
    This week I?m going to work on new website. Done my research and I definitely should target the KW. It can become a pretty freaking big website so I?m curious how long this will take me. Really depends on how many articles I want to make. I think I can write 100-200 articles if I want to but not sure it that?s really effective haha.

    Hope you guys liked the update. It was good for me definitely and will keep you guys up to date.
