My Journey I'm finally beginning my journey after a lot of research and many years of contemplating whether or not I should start Internet marketing. I have a full time job this summer and I'm finally making enough money to save and delve into this adventure. This thread is for me to stay motivated, disciplined and on track. I'm planning to grow a money site from nothing to at least $500 a month. I plan to generate traffic through search, social media, social bookmarking, and PBN's. Income will come mainly from display ads and affiliate sales. Background When I was 15 my parents divorced leaving me with my mother who was not financially well off given we relied on my father for most of our income. She found a job and supported me and my older brother. This was very tough on all of us financially and I watched my mother suffer, doing without to provide for us. During high school I got into a lot of trouble legally this caused my mom so much disappointment and heart ache. I had let her down after all she had done to provide for me and lead me on the right path. I had the right motives at the time just the wrong mindset and this is what led to my incarceration. After seeing her so disappointed and let down I decided to change, I needed to make her proud and change my life around. So I applied to college and got accepted. I'm currently in my last year and working towards a degree while working part time. However I'm tired of watching my mother suffer financially till this day. I want to provide for her and plan to do that through my career and hopefully someday through Internet marketing. I know it will take time to achieve this goal but I''m willing to put the hours in. Completed so Far Built a website and let age for 6 months. Researched keywords with KWfinder. Outsourced for 2 Articles with @NatashaNixon (waiting on 1). Ordered some expired web 2.0's PA 30+ I'm new to all of this so any advice or constructive criticizing is more than appreciated. I plan to update this thread at least once a week as I'm still working full-time. I will try to add at least 3 articles per week hopefully more.
