Hello guys and gals of BHW! With this thread I want to catalog my earnings, failures, and basically everything else that goes on with my quest for an online income. I will update daily with what I am doing and what I have tried/what works. I also would like to help out anyone that is new to making money online. About me: My name is Michael and I have been trying to make money online for around 6 months now. I am 23 and am currently taking college courses. I want to eventually be able to make a living online and since $160 per day would be $20 per hour at an 8 hour job I picked that goal. The main reason I am doing this is that I have social anxiety. For those of you that don't know what SA is, it is a kind of phobia in which I have trouble being in social situations, whether it be going to the store or even talking to someone on the phone. I didn't even know I had it until a year ago, and I have been trying to overcome it since then. I also am in a major I hate and have no idea what I want to do if I changed that major. Enough about me, now onto what I am doing to make my goal become a reality! What I am doing: When I first started online 6 months ago I made a single website that was formed around a popular trend on reddit at the time. I am not sure if any of you remember cat facts daily, but I took that concept and made a website on dog facts daily. For some reason I thought that I could bank on this one trend on reddit...but boy was I wrong. To date I have made around $50 from ads on that website, and now I am averaging between $4-$6 per month from it. I have given up on that website for now but plan to go back to it eventually. My main source of income online right now is from Internet Marketing through email lists. If you haven't read the email list thread yet here it is: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...-money-email-lists-my-40k-month-strategy.html It has everything you need to know on how to start your own email list. I learned everything from reading that thread so I highly recommend it. I have an email list of around 500 right now but am starting over with a new approach since I have blasted that list too much. I plan to start making a blog that will gather emails so that I have another means to collecting them. I currently use facebook and craigslist to get leads, but you can also buy solo ads (much more expensive though). I would also like to start a few micro niche websites and see how that goes, I have read a lot about them on this website. My earnings, starting today (8/6/12): My new email list size: 10 (+3 today) Clickbank: $65.60 Ads: $0.04 My Total Earnings Online: Clickbank: $260 Ads: $50 I just wanted to say thank you to everyone on BHW that has helped me reach this so far, this is a great community and a great website! If you have any questions feel free to ask!
