    Hello, I just recently started posting here and this were I will transcribe my journey of trying to ear at least $150/day. I haven't really decided on my method yet. A little background on me is that I'm an 18 year old college dropout. I decided college wasn't for me because I was tired of learning and not doing. I follow the Startup scene a lot of have experience working with startups.

    Why Am I Doing This:
    I need to earn money and I am not going to get a dead end job where my skill will not be fully utilized. I am also going to prove everyone wrong who doubt me and think that college is necessary to make a living.

    My Skills:
    I can do HTML, CSS, PHP, jQuery, Wordpress, and Photoshop. I can learn almost anything quickly so in the case I need to learn something new I should be fine.

    Current Resources: Right now due to some networking with people I was given access to a Facebook Fan Page with 582K fans based on a HipHop niche with the age range of 18-24. I also was given a three letter Twitter Account for the marijuana niche.

    Background:
    The past week I have been working on a Facebook cloaker and was running Facebook ads and invested $30 and made $140. And I plan to somehow monetize the Facebook Fan Page and the Witter Account.

    If anyone wants to hit me up on Skype and shoot some ideas or just talk it's the same as my username.

    ---------------------------

    Day 1:
    Today was my first day and I was able to get some stuff rolling but ran into two problems. I worked on the cloaker more and add live search and some other fancy pants features. I also am working with another member to run ads on Facebook and split the profits using the cloaker but am having problems with the domain we'll be using for the landing page, looks like it hasn't resolved yet. Plus for my Twitter account I am paying my sister $0.10/tweet so that the account will stay active and I tried to buy Twitter followers on Fiverr but at the last second the gig was cancelled. Tonight wasn't the most successful day, but we'll see what tomorrow has to offer.

    It's actually for as specific hip hop artist. I'm not sure if it's the official one or not, I think it might be haha.

    Edit:
    The night is still young and I was able to set up some Facebook ads and got the landing page up. So lets see how these ads convert tomorrow. I'm pretty excited!

    Okay, I totally forgot about this so here is another update that will summarize everything that I've done in the past few weeks (months?).

    I'm still working on the Cloaker and have added support for Facebook and Twitter. I've been running ads through Facebook with it for a while now and haven't had any problems. With those ads in the past few months I've spent around $500 and made $800. Which isn't that much, but it's a start. I have also created a few Facebook Ad Accounts and sold them to people and brought in a nice $1.5k just yesterday. I have also setup a website and have been posting content to it and been getting many hits from Google and even got a sale from a google search! I'm still adding more content and also opening up another site on a similar niche. I'm going to keep expanding and keep making money. So far I'm happy with the results but it's time to start getting shit in a higher gear so I can get more money in my wallet.

    Another update:

    Been working on adding more articles still and running FB ads. Ran a few days of ads and just did okay, not like I usually do. I think this is either because the pages I'm using as a lander has a lot of "distracting" outside links and also that my ads aren't very strong (so they stay in FB guidelines). Today I got another sale from my site through a Google search!!! I think I got more but they may not have showed up in the network for some reason. I am also purchasing an SEO service from BHW called SEO Shark, so lets see how that goes in a few weeks. So far my only expenses has been FB Ads, WordAI Spinner, and SEO Shark.

    Pretty much I do ads on Facebook that are not compliant with the TOS so I cloak my ad url so when the reviewers and everyone else clicks on it they see something else. But real people who click on it see the offer page.

    So the person who reviews your ads see something other than the content you're really trying to promote?
