    Hello everybody, I have been on this forum for about 3-4 months but I didn't post anything. I found a lot of useful stuff (and also lots of crappy things/Technics) but what I enjoyed the most is the Journey section. That's why I decided to start my own journey and as well because I haven't done that much (I mean nothing) this last month and I think that post often will help to keep doing.

    I'm in IM (mostly in SEO) for about 5 months. I'm gonna speak about this later on. I made about $100 in 3 months time.

    I will try to update my thread every 2-3 days with a summary of my earnings and what I did in the meantime.


    -I'm really sorry for my broken english, I hope that my thread will not be to hard to read.
    -I'm currently living in Ireland and I have a full time job in IT.

    My main and secondary goals:
    -Earn $100 a month.
    -Earn $500 a month. -> main one I would like to achieve in 3 months time.
    -Earn $1000 a month.

    What I have:
    -Knowledge about SEO and IM.
    -Scrapebox.
    -A couple of sim cards.
    -About 6hours a day of free time (I mean the time I can sit on a chair and work on my IM stuff)
    -One PR2 website.
    -Imacros knowledge (I can create and I have macros for basic stuffs like accounts creation, Addmefast, etc...)
    -Followliker for twitter

    Plan:
    1) I will use twitter and facebook to earn some money via entertainment websites (I will first try via Mylikes to see if they are paying).
    2) Continue and rebuild my first website that is a niche website. I want to rank it on the first page for 2 keywords that have about 20K MS per month in my country.

    What I have already done before to start this thread:
    -Build my first website (and bought the PR2) that is getting about 500 U.V a month.
    -Made about $13 in 2 weeks time on Mylikes with one facebook account.

    Good luck. I'm trying to build a twitter account too, started 10 days ago, only have 5.7k followers yet, but i'm averaging 400-600 new followers a day.

    Depending on your niche we could do cross promotions.

    I just opened the twitter accounts to redirect to entertainment websites I don't plan to use CPA offers or to sell tweets and I'm just targeting US users.
    Get 5,7K on one account in 10 days time is really good I think :)

    UPDATE
    WHAT I HAVE DONE THE LAST 3 DAYS:

    Not too much!
    :juggle:

    -I created 3 macros, one to share automatically the content from my main page with my FB accounts / one to autopost on my main page and the last one to add friends with my new accounts.
    -Setted up firefox profiles,

    What do I use on my profiles?
    -FoxyProxy -> to switch easily betweenn my proxies
    -Nightly add-on -> to know which profile I'm using
    -Imacro

    -Setted up ONE new FB account and started to share content with one that reached 5K friends. I also scrapped users from some groups for 4 new accounts. This list will last at least one week of adding for all of them.

    What I plan for the next days:
    -Create 4 more FB accounts
    -Set up my twitters account to start sharing content
    -Finish to re-edit my affiliate website
    -Continue to build up backlinks

    Earnings 08/30 -> 09/01 :
    -Mylikes:
    $0,32
    -Website:
    $0

    Facebook accounts: 2 (5K friends)
    Twitter accounts: 6 (1,3K followers)
    Weekly affiliate website visits: 60



    /!\NOTE/!\
    If you have any questions about macros creation or profiles set up, I will be really happy to help you.

    Journey looks good, but forget MyLikes, they don't pay and shave off earnings.

    Mind adding me on Skype -- Belliiana? I might need some help with Imacros programming.

    Thanks dude! I'm just using Mylikes for split testing (I plan to build my own after, mainly because I don't have enough time and in 3 month I will be full time IM) and to improve my process. I already have $14 on my mylikes account and at 20 I will stop to promote them if they don't pay in time.
    For sure, I will add you after work in a couple of hours.

    Good luck with your journey. I want to get traffic from social media also. Maybe we can share some tips and just discuss how to get traffic on social media as we progress at the same time :)

    Thank you Dude! I will stay focus because I don't have another choice.

    Thank you! Yes sure, I will try to post tips in every update.


    What i'm doing to build my first accounts:

    On facebook -> Just added 1000 thousands friends from everywhere manually (between 20 and 50 daily) and after with the right accounts settings (I mean let people post on my wall and put everything on my profile in "public mode"). After about 1 or 2 weeks, plenty of people started to add me and I reached the 5000 friends and the 1000+ followers in 4-5 days time. Note I just added manually the friends for the FIRST accounts. Yet, I'm able to automate everything.

    My advices (for fb):

    • Don't forget to put a profile and cover picture with a nice looking girl (who wants to had a ugly fat guy that you don't know...) and also scrape enough picture of the same person.
    • Don't accept (or try) fake profile (usually you can see it when the number of friend is under 50)
    • Scrape facebook group and pages that you are interested in for your goal with the notepad++ technic
    • Get a way to verify your accounts if needed and don't use your own IP and no more than 5 or 6 accounts per proxy (that is already too many i think)

    On twitter -> Just use a bot and different IP. Tried to automate everything (I have a tweet scrapper, an account creator, and Followliker). But for the moment I don't think that followliker worth the price at all.


    NOTE: I don't update that much the thread because it's my birthday today and i'm working 10hours a day for my company. But I will start daily update (or try) from Friday!
    I'm still here to answer questions!

    Yes a couple of months ago. I created some back links (about 50) and my website is ranking for the main keyword on the page 30 and I have most part of my secondary keywords ranking from the page 2 to 6 in the serps. I made some sales and get some traffics from search results and quality backlinks (like forum posts and manual comments of articles ranking high for my main keyword). I need to improve my website (mainly for keyword density and siloing). I will start to build back link again via 2.0 properties this w-e. Hope I answered your question :)
    PS: my website has a brand new domain name but I think I start to be out of the sandbox.

    I would like but infortunately I'm a way too busy in my life. With my full time work + IMer work, i'm working in average 12 to 16 hours a day (11 for the full time a day + 1 to 5 more hours for the IMer). I have 3 dais free in the week but I use them to do the things I couldn't do but I will try in the future!

    UPDATE

    So, I have been working a couple of hours on my social account this last days. What I did?

    -Created 3 new facebook accounts
    -Scheduled post (about 1 every 2 hours) on my facebook page and also on my main twitter account (with Tweetdeck -> really good software and FREE to manage twitter account(s))
    -I also created scrapped and created 5 lists of friends to add for my new accounts and created an autoadder macro for each account. -> seems to work really fine because one of them has already 100 friends after 3 days in TOTAL auto-pilot.
    -I created a macro for autounlock twitter accounts (the macro is working really good) BUT the problem comes from yahoo because I bought those twitter accounts on fiverr when i couldn't use imacros (that was a pretty bad idea -> DON'T use fiverr for twitter, for facebook it's fine if you've your own numbers to confirm your accounts.)

    I decide to put more numbers in my updates to make them more interesting and also as I said before to do update every day.



    ALL TIME IM EARNINGS: $128,63

    MyLikes:



    • [*=1]09/01->09/05 : $3,46
      [*=1]Total: $17,09

    ​
    Website:


    • [*=1]Total: $80



    My plans for tomorrow are to create new twitter accounts, create enough posts for one day and start again to solve the issue on my website.

    Woah, nice job man. It's kinda sudden, but how did you make $80 from your website? It's an affiliate site right? What did you use to drive traffic to it?
