    Good luck bro, I think the main thing is to keep doing small amounts of work and not to burn out. A little and often is better than everything and then nothing for months.

    UPDATE

    MS4 got first order on amazon today yay!


    There are other criteria too when I am buying PBN, which will require a separate guide sometime when I have time. Right now I pay anything between $10-20 per link

    I have hired freelancers in my country. I pay them sometimes on monthly basis and sometimes different rates on per word basis depending on how much they can write and quality of their work, but my max does not exceed $10 per 1000 words.

    thx for your kind words, I work on my sites daily, its the only thing I am doing right now

    IS AMAZON FEELING PINCH OF CARONA

    I am seeing lots of delays in shipping products that have been ordered, Is anybody else seeing this. I am worried that customers don't get into return mode due to this and all efforts gets lost.

    UPDATE

    Ordered More content for MS2, the sales are also picking up nicely, but deliveries are getting delayed at Amazon's end. Hopefully it will all work out fine.

    Learning about Pinterest to get additional traffic to sites

    EARNINGS

    Crossed $100 in earnings

    UPDATE

    With Carona hitting, the whole country is in lockdown. So working from home. The PBN links I bought earlier have started showing traction. Did a Big KW research for Money Site 4 (MS4). Found a good chunk of keywords using Keyword Researcher Pro. Its a relatively unknown tool, but IMHO very underrated, finds me tons of keywords even though for finding keyword difficulty I use KW Finder.

    btw, I find a huge difference between Search data by Ahrefs vs KwFinder, with Ahrefs generally showing higher search data for long tails.

    EARNINGS

    My Earnings from MS1 is a bit down this time, maybe due to Carona issues as the rankings are stable. However, MS2 is contributing well. MS3 & MS4 have started pitching in with few sales. Overall hoping to hit $300 mark, a bit far fetched but still have items which have not shipped yet due to Carona.

    EXPENSES

    I haven't shared the expenses in this journey as I am not keeping a detailed log myself. But I will be sharing the major expenses I incur so I can get back and see what worked when.

    $260 PBN Backlinks
    $200 Content (approx)
    Total: $460

    As you can see I am not break even as of now, but the expenses on links and content will generate income for months to come. Hoping I can break even in next month. Lets see what I can achieve.

    UPDATE

    Have lots of content in pipeline and getting posted. Ordered content for MS2 & MS4. Faced some hosting issues which took up around 2 days in last week. Got it sorted finally Also worked on speeding up the sites a lot, really love it when see this in report.

    Screenshot 2020-04-02 at 1.44.14 AM.png

    The Desktop version was showing full 100 score. Found a really great theme, which increased speed a lot.

    EARNINGS

    Screenshot 2020-04-01 at 9.25.21 PM.png

    The earnings would have been higher if all the items would have shipped. Also, I think MS1 (Money Site 1) was effected by Corona and did not hit the revenue which it hits generally every month. Overall, I am satisfied with the earning in the current scenario. Have 3 more months to hit $1K per month mark, fingers crossed. MS 3 & MS 4 also started generating sales, so its full cylinders firing for next month. Hopefully Coronavirus situation would be sorted by then.

    Doing niche research for launching a new site by next week.

    If you don't mind me asking, which theme are you using?


    Don't be hard on yourself though. But I wish you will make it.

    I am currently using Kadence Beta Theme, its free for now in beta version but again have the risk of something breaking. But its insanely fast. btw, Astra is also good and fast. I also use elementor plugin to design some pages.

    Targets are meant to be hard and will try my best to reach it. Thx for your support

    Its quite interesting and simple method, infact I laugh on myself of not thinking it earlier. I just advertised the job on my country's indeed.com and in 24 hours I had a long list of writers who wanted to work for me from home. I specifically mentioned that I will pay per word basis.

    Thanks for posting your journey! I'm thinking of doing the same on here too. I'm curious what kind of quality you get for the $10 per 1000 words rate. I have found I can get new Native English writers just starting out on Upwork for $15 per 1000 words mainly in return for a good Upwork review. But have to increase that to $20 to maintain them and eventually to $25. When I use non-native English writers, sometimes there is a slight weirdness to the text. Not always spelling and grammar errors. But just like, obviously not written as a Native speaker particularly to US, UK, and CA audiences. Is this something you have had to deal with with your writers? Or does it not matter to you if it is not Native English level as long as it does not have errors and mistakes?
