    So today I embark on a new journey in my Internet Marketing hobby. I am currently pushing dating traffic to my dating offer and make anywhere from $300 - $500 a week from this method. So i have start up money and really like the idea of having a high quality list i can just blast out emails to with my affiliate link and make instant sales. It sounds like its going to be a long journey and a lot of trial and error but it sounds like something i can take on. :cool:
    My main goal is to reach a list of 10,000 quality emails on my list. I may not update this everyday but I'll try to update it a few times a week.

    Day 1 - Today i bought a domain in my niche and set up my landing page with my email opt-in. Sent some "free" traffic just to test my lander and had a 92% Opt-in conversion ratio lol, not sure how " high quality " this traffic is but i now have 24 subscribers :). I plan on buying some high quality traffic and see what kind of results i get. I'll write another update in a day or two. Wish me luck!

    So far invested : $10
    Earned : $0

    Looking forward to further development.

    By the way, are those subscribers double opt-in or single opt-in?

    Yes I would also like to know about your traffic, do you buy traffic somewhere or how do you do it. I also have a few landing pages that need some good traffic.

    Good luck with the journey!

    Day 2 : So today i invested 20.00 on some PPC just to test the waters and see how many clicks actually come out of it. And how many subscribers i get from that. Once I get my subscribers from the PPC i'll send out an affiliate offer and see what kind of results I get. *fingers crossed* I am sitting at 26 subscribers as far as my current list goes. This is all for fun and hopefully its a good long term investment. I've had a successful dating campaign since July and i would like a second strong stream of income. Hopefully this is what this project becomes.

    Total invested : 30.00
    Total Earned : 0.00

    Alright so Day 3 was an epic Fail :noidea:
    Set up my ppc campaign to 6 cents per click to see how many op tins i could i get. Thought i would try MyLikes.com -facepalm-
    [​IMG]

    So they said they sent 231 " paid clicks " and "369" total clicks

    But on my emailing list it says i only got 45 uniques. and 2 subscribers -__-

    [​IMG]

    So yea i tested out 13 bucks and and change with there service and it was a total waste of money. Oh well. This is a long road to success and I'm just starting out. Not giving up here :)

    Slow day today, I'm currently working out some deals with some traffic providers.
    shout out to seo20 - Jr. Executive VIP He gave me some really cool advice that will remain private but I'll be putting to use. So I'll be updating this thread in the near future testing out some of his advice in my own campaign. As for now its 3:27 PM EST and I've gained 9 subscribers to my list and i now have a total of 48 Subscribers... i think i'll gain another 8 or 9 by the time this day is over. 9952 More to go :p lol. I've been doing IM long enough to know persistence and patience is key. I'll update again soon :) Have a good day everyone.

    Today's stats :

    SHIT JUST GOT REAL

    Just got my first sale, i wasn't going to update untill tomorrow but i just logged into clickbank and saw that i made 17.00 bucks! :D
    Looks like it was an 11.04 sale and there was an "upsale " and got a bonus 6.22 bucks. This is great news it means my plan can actually work if i just scale things up! Glad to know i'm not wasting time + money Wow this is exciting :) First sale on day 4 on my new venture. Just thought I'd write this since its like a personal diary for me lol.

    I'm looking forward to your update today! Could you give us some advice that is similar to what you were given? I'm just about to get into internet marketing and your first sale on only day 4 got me really excited. Are you using Aweber?

    What did your marketing email look like? Do you intend on marketing the same product over and over every couple weeks? Are you going to send out freebies like ebooks and tips? What niche are you in?

    Post your update!!!

    Hey sorry for the lack of updates, Had to take a break from this journey as my main IM campaign was having issues and needed to attend that & still do. Haven't had much time put into my email side gig. I'm at 62 subscribers and had some traffic ideas that didn't work out as well i had hoped. But I will be buying click from others emailing list in the same niche in hopes of gaining subscribers that can turn into profit. I'll be updating again shortly.
