I am starting another INSTAGRAM journey. First off, don't ask me any questions -- cause I don't have the answers to them myself. How many accounts? I don't know. What niche? Beats me. How am I going to monetize? Not a clue. And yet here I am. Trying to establish a goal, reach it, and I don't even know where to begin. It's like going on a journey in a jungle without a map, no clues what creatures lie in the dark, and whether or not there's food to eat. EXACTLY! And that's the beauty of this journey. As far as Instagram goes, I'm a blank slate. If you're following this, expect to see the weirdest and the dumbest ideas and efforts to be done, but occasionally, I might have some strokes of genius as well. I'll try everything there is to try. I'll get inside every niche where my interest lies. Monetize using all possible ways. And the best part? I don't even know where all of it will lead me! If you can't be excited by that, I'm not sure what will. 1.) GOALS I don't have an earnings goal simply because money comes and goes. My goal lies in the very process that produces the income. So my goal is to establish systems -- for all the niches I will involve myself into. In order for a system to be proved effective, it should cross a few lines from my handy-dandy measuring stick: a.) Monthly Revenue - The system should be able to produce a minimum of $100 in a month. Anything less than that (even a penny!), then it won't even be considered a system yet. b.) Well-recorded and carefully analyzed timeline in which the system will be most effective -- Look, some niches are seasonal. And I'm pretty sure hundreds, if not thousands, of IMers earned big moolah in the past NBA Season (probably just off of the 7 straight games between Cavs and Warriors). If a niche is seasonal, then so is the system that revolves around it will be. c.) Well-planned daily routine that the system will follow (plus any other EVENTUAL recurring tasks) 2.) CURRENT So... what everybody is probably waiting for. What are my current stats? Number of followers? IG posts. Truly, I've worked my ass off, literally. You could say that I've been twerking non-stop for the past year. And I'm very proud of where I've gotten from where I started. So here it goes... A few months back, I started an IG account. I won't say the niche because it's a secret. A very, very, very deep secret. Anyways, that account has been growing everyday. Stats: Followers -- 134 Posts -- 1 Engagement -- 30 likes on that said single post And yeah, I've just been twerking for this past year. I follow/unfollow whenever I feel like doing so. When I feel lazy, I just eat ice cream and play Skyrim and I just totally forget about my IG. It's like magic 3.) NEXT TASKS The not so exciting part. But hey, we're human beings. Our brains are designed to seek comfort. NOBODY wants the grunt work. Sometimes, I even wish there's a way I could enjoy the taste of food, have it nourish my body, without having the need to chew and swallow. I have my lazy days. But jokes aside. Here's the part where I will lay down the tasks I have for the day. Before that though, I'll make a prototype. But I'm a dumbo when it comes to techy stuff so not what you're thinking about. A prototype system depending on my current level of knowledge. Something I THINK (read: Dumb assumptions) will work and will bring in the moolah. And that's where my tasks will be derived from. So How Often Am I Going to Update This Thread? Daily, probably more than once a day. See, I'm training myself to write. Don't get me wrong. I CAN write. In fact, that's my profession. But I'm training myself to write for MY AMUSEMENT, not a client's. When you've spent years writing things so that clients would love it, you'll find it especially hard to begin writing again, like a child, without any colors. Just pure personality. WITHOUT FURTHER ADO... LET THE IG GAMES BEGIN!
