I contemplated doing this for a long time, in the end I felt like only positive things can come from documenting my progress. Especially since all you kind hatters will guide me Background I have never made any money online I studied marketing, (not digital) then afterwards started to read everything I could about IM, this was around 2012 I traveled for a few years so never got to practice Returned to my homeland, got a job in PR and worked in social media for a year Decided this was shit so took one of their clients and "started" my own business I decided now that this business is not the road I want to travel (It just isn't scalable in a way I want) I've always wanted to work completely online but just never had the opportunity, the client I have takes up very little of my time so essentially I am able to commit 50 hours+ pw to IM. It also provides me with enough money to pay my rent and invest in some tools etc. Where I'm at now After assessing all of the options I've decided that I want to make 2 websites in different niches, and 10-15 2.0s. around each (eventually) I have experience with wordpress so this is not a problem. Site 1 micro niche site targeting a clickbank product purchased domain keyword and a modifier installed wordpress created an opt in wrote 1000 word+ article on "what is the *niche*" Paid for another 3 articles 600 words built first 2.0 with 1000 word unique article; have not linked yet Still to do Write 4 more 1000+ articles Get social signal boost Create youtube video blast video into serps more 2.0s Site 2 Affiliate review site domain is brandable name, no keyword but closely related installed wordpress and theme purchased 3 x1000 word premium articles and 5 x 500 word standard created Instagram a/c running followliker (very conservative settings right now) 30 followers Found expired 2.0 PA30 in exact niche! posted 1 unique 500 word article with images (not linked back) Still to do Finish layout create opt in format all the articles and publish sign up to related affiliate program (cant do until they see the site) create social accounts more 2.0s Plan I plan to finish site one first, hopefully in the next day or 2. Once I have a video made I will pay for views/social signals etc. I also plan on using meatheads method to get some immediate traffic to asses the site. From these metrics I will tweak site and start bing ads. I started site 2 originally but put it on the backburner, I feel site one has the potential to make money faster. No money or traffic to date. I'm so hungry for this, but I might need some help along the way so please get involved, ask me anything and suggestions welcomed!
