    Well a few weeks back, i started a site and was in the process of setting it up slowly (because of exams) but however, the web host kinda screwed up my settings somehow.
    Anyways, finals is done and I have moved to a new webhost service and am now starting fresh. Which is great because I can finally focus on this completely for at least a few weeks till school comes back on.

    Anyways my plan:
    Start a website/blog and post articles that give tips.
    I have bought a whole batch of articles from fiverr and I'm going to rewrite them by hand to shoot for uniqueness.
    After there is a good amount of articles, I will start some SEO for the site. Traffic. Gotta catch em all
    Once there is decent traffic, I will post a separate section from the blog for clickbank product reviews and add hoplinks.
    From there, I will venture out to experiment with other affiliate programs.

    Things done so far as of today:
    Set up website (installing themes and editing layouts, menus, etc..)
    Rewrote a few articles
    Posted an article

    Note: I am a total newbie at IM but have been learning a ton of stuff from this site. I'm also a complete noob at websites but everyone starts off as a noob.
    That being said, even though I suck right now, I won't give up

    I'll be updating you guys soon.
    Also thank you guys too. If it weren't for you guys I'd probably be content working in a part-time 9-5 job right now for the holidays

    Thanks!
    Yeah I know I'm expecting to be putting a lot of effort into it and seeing results within weeks or even months.
    But I guess it's going to be a good experience either way

    Boring update: uploaded more content and slowly improving the site's looks

    But here's a tip. Most of you probably know it anyways but,
    when you find stuff to implement on your method, write it down physically on paper, or save it somehow.
    It's a mistake I've committed by thinking up an idea for my site and thinking I would remember it the next day.
    The brain sucks at remembering important things.

    Good luck! Will you do SEO by yourself or outsource it?

    Good luck. Do you ever plan to take the adsense route? If so, be sure to focus on a niche that will yield higher paying ads. You don't want to get into a niche that is only paying 30 cents per click. If you decide to work with Adsense message me and I will let you know a couple of good paying niches. I am constantly getting 2-4 per click on my ads.

    Been a few weeks and yet still no earnings.
    So I'm gonna be doing a new method in a new niche.
    however ill still be building up this site on the side in hopes of turning it into an authority.
    Once I get any earnings ill update this with my new plan.

    And no I'm not giving up. It's all trial and error to see what works out

    Keep at it and it will come. Instead of buying articles look into spinning and then giving a hand polish.
    Matt Woodward has put some great stuff on here about it...
    Best of luck

    Update:
    Here's my new plan.
    Youtube + CPA
    -Download a bunch of youtube videos in different niches and spin them + put watermarks
    -Upload multiple videos on multiple accounts with CPA offer in the link
    -Use Vagex credits to help rank videos in order to get organic views and potential buyers
    -Use student loans to buy credits, proxies, etc..

    What I have done yesterday and today:
    nothing... just kidding.
    I picked a few niches, got keywords for them, and downloaded a bunch of videos.
    Today i picked videos for one niche and spun them and are currently being uploaded to youtube.
    I also bought a VPN and am planning on buying private proxies to go with it.

    If any of you have tips, please feel free to share!
