Hello Black Hat World! This will be my first post on BHW and I hope to update it into success! As I've never posted before I will give a little background on myself. I currently work for an digital marketing agency doing web design and SEO. I am completely self taught and began my learning around ~2 and a half years ago. Very recently I, and a close friend and colleague have decided to start a side business and hopefully become self employed! With one site already having brought $103 gross, I'm feeling pretty confident! In the past days I have done an enormous amount of reading in an attempt to find a method with which we could focus our efforts and possibly build a stable automated income. I found some method using CrakRevenue with social media to drive PPLs. After some social media setup I've managed average 7 uniques a day and one lead! (Running around 7 full days so far) But I was really looking for a way to solidify this and build some longevity. I found Smootie's Webcam Method (http://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/method-my-webcam-method-to-making-600-a-month.801786/ because the editor is being weird about these links) and took some elements from it. You can see the jump to 24 uniques following this implementation. But that gave me ideas for scaling. So, after some more searching I came across Reinstecker's Adult Autoblog Method (http://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/updated-method-easy-my-autoblog-social-media-passive-income-system.603521/ ) and decided it fit perfectly with what I wanted to do. (All of this will have my own spins in it). So in honor of my first full attempt, I thought I would track my progress with a journey thread. Thus far I have purchased hosting, and a domain and installed WP on my first subdomain. I've been up late, so tomorrow after work I will be purchasing a VPN for the SM accounts. I'm leaning towards Private Internet Access. Any recommendations there? I look forward to becoming a part of the BHW community so any suggestions or tips are absolutely welcomed.
