    TBH's Journey Thread

    I've been lurking on the forum for quite some time, and I finally decided to make an account. I learned a lot from here and I want to put all the education I received into action and actually start making some money.

    I'm a noob. I'll admit it. But that is not going to stop me from getting those $1,000/days (in the future). So right now, I'm going to start small, and reinvest every single cent​ back into my business.

    My plan is to create multiple passive income streams that I can look to and use to invest into more volatile, and high risk ideas. From the limited amount of experience I have doing Internet Marketing, the easiest and most profitable way for me to achieve this is via SEO.

    Then I could use that money to invest into other stuff like paid traffic, media buys, and even start building offline businesses. The main problem is that in order to build a proper SEO empire, I'll need some sort of cash flow...

    The same cash flow I don't have.

    And that's the main purpose (or one of the purposes) of this thread. In 3 months, I am going to make a steady $25/day. That's $750/month I can reinvest to build multiple authority websites, and start building my SEO empire.

    Right now, I don't have a lot of resources.
    Only time and the desire to succeed. So that pretty much limits me to how quickly I can scale any method. I'll learn how to code, and how to market as I progress through the journey.

    First, like I talked about before, I need startup capital. That's the $25/day I'm talking about. I actually think I could probably start making that amount quicker than 3 months, but for now, that's just an estimate time of arrival.

    How I'll Make Money

    I hate writing, so that's out of the equation. I am going to do some Fiverr work and probably even Youtube + CPA for now. (Since I have no cash, I'll just use free blogspots to host my landing pages)

    I'll monetize the youtube + CPA thing using MGcash. I already have an account with them, so I don't have to worry about being approved. I have some Youtube method ideas that I want to test out first, so i expect that entire thing to be profitable in a week. (A Steady $1-5/day in a week ish)

    For the Fiverr thing. I already have a working method that I'll just have to scale up. Right now, every time I use the method I get about 3-4 orders from fiverr. So if I target the traffic differently, and scale it up with more accounts, more traffic, and better copy, it shouldn't be too hard to get to $20/day with fiverr in a couple of weeks.

    I'll do some freelance work because I have coding and copy writing experience. I could probably get some work every 3-7 days, so that would be a really decent income, so I could scale up the Youtube + CPA method faster.

    Future Money Makers

    I like SEO, and it will be the way I get to that $1000/day income. In 3 months, I should have at least $1000 saved up, so I could build a few authority sites and start ranking them. 4 50 page sites should bring me in about $20-$50/day in affiliate revenue. After that, it will just be a rinse and repeat process.

    Fivver:
    $0
    Freelance: $0
    Youtube + CPA: $0


    I'll update the thread every single day. Wish me luck guys. I should see some results by tomorrow morning.

    Been a BHW lurker too for awhile, I've got some large capital coming in a few months as well so I'll definitely be subscribing to this and see how it works out for you.

    Thanks for the support guys!

    So I just setup a schedule software that tracks how much time I spend on a certain project. I'm doing this, so I'll have some idea on what I can speed up in the near future. (Like if something takes up too much time, I can simply outsource it) Also, i get to see how much work I've been doing and report it to you guys.

    Fiverr

    I setup my first gig today and I am going to use a method of mine to drive traffic to the gig. It's a simple edu/gov backlink service, so i do expect to get a couple of sales by tomorrow afternoon after i run the method.

    Youtube + CPA

    Tonight I'm going to grab a couple of Youtube + CPA methods here, and start doing a couple of them. Right now I just want to get a feel of what I have to do, then I can streamline the process, add some twists and make some more money. I'm definitely thinking about doing the keygens, but maybe I can find something that is less competitive.
    Freelancing

    I'm going to be lurking in the freelance section tonight to see if I could get a client. I'll also try to up my post count, so I could start sending pm's. Hopefully, I get some coding work tonight, so I could make a quick buck.

    Last night I did about an hour worth of research, and built a Youtube method I'm going to follow for the next two weeks. In that time period, I'm also going to build a bot that gets me credits from enhanceviews. I'm not going into details on that because it's very unique, and I don't want it to be saturated.

    Tonight, when I get home from school, I'm going to get 40 niches and I'm going to start building landing pages, and making the videos for them. I think I'll just reup videos for half, and create videos for the other half, so i could see which is more profitable in the long run.

    Later tonight, I'm also going to start driving traffic to my fiverr gig, and by tomorrow, I should have a couple of sales for each gig. As for the freelance work, I'm still looking and eventually I'll be able to send out pm's to members.

    When you reupload videos, make sure you change them a little bit and change the m5 hash do youtube recognizes it as a different video.

    Quick Update:

    I did not manage to get 40 niches like I posted above, but I did manage to get 5 really good ones (competition varies) that I'm pretty excited to try out. I know off the top of my head that 2 out of 5 will be really profitable. One is a medium competition niche, and the other is very stiff competition.

    I have some unique, long term niches that I want to test out, and if they work, it would be a nice passive income stream in the long run, and if they are profitable, I'll definitely build a website around those niches, and grow them some more.

    I'm now going to get some sub-niches (the content itself) and start creating videos/landing pages for each. I plan on having about 50 videos/landing pages setup by Friday night, so I'll have all weekend to test out and see if they make me any money. I'm going to start working on that today.

    Before I go to bed, I'll start driving some traffic to my fiverr gigs and by tomorrow, I should have an order already. I'll then complete this order, setup a new gig, and then later tomorrow night, I'll rinse and repeat the process until I have enough data to make fiverr more profitable. (Less work, == more money, so I'll try to streamline my fiverr sales process, and see if I could convert all my buyers more.)

    So far, I haven't made a cent, but we're still on day one, so I'm not worried about it. By the end of the week, I should have more experience, and landing pages ready to be launched. I'm really pumped up for some weird reason because I know that the more I work, the more money I could make. And on that note, I'm off to build some landing pages & get the videos made.

    Quick question for you guys. What free web 2.0 platform can I use to host my content lockers? I know blogspot is one of them, but is it safe?

    You have a decent selection of stable ways of income. You don't rely on just one, that's what I normally do, so I wish you nothing, but a great luck.

    Today is a great day because I actually made money today. Last night I got one of my first freelancing work for $20. I know it's not a lot, but whatever, it's still something. It's a copywriting gig, so it's not too boring. I think I'll start buckling down and start writing normal articles. I know I hate doing it, but right now, I really don't have much of a choice.

    I write well, and I see that a lot of marketers need content on the forum at an affordable rate. I also woke up this morning to 4 fiverr orders on one of my gig. I already completed them, and I plan on creating some new gigs and promoting them the same way using my secret method.

    I also woke up to some twists for the Youtube + CPA thing. I want to work on these some more, and actually get the # of videos up and posted on youtube by the end of the week.

    I made $10 at school for doing some homework for a kid today. Not bad, and I'll add it to my bank account on Friday to use for the future. I'm going to start adding the # of dollars in the bank because it would be a great motivator, and a money management tool I could use to keep track of my cash flow. I don't want to be spending all of the money I earn on useless stuff, so this will be great.

    I think i'm going to go grab a job at the laundromat in my neighborhood. It's Sat & Sun for 10 hours at $7.25/hour. Should kickstart my earnings big time. I could use that money to setup websites, and scale my methods faster. Do you guys think this is a good idea?

    The total as of today is:

    Fiverr: $16
    Freelance: $10
    Youtube + CPA: $0
    Total NET Worth (+$14) = $40

    PS: I'm only 18 and still in highschool, so this is great seeing that it's only day 2.

    Quick update.

    I uploaded one video to youtube, and I'm waiting for my content locker to be approved by mgcash. Hopefully that is done by tomorrow, so I can create and upload the remainder videos.

    I just found this awesome site that pays you to write articles. It's called hirewriters, so I'm pretty much going to incorporate that into my journey until i start making $50/day passive. I'm going to use dragon naturally speaking to write the articles faster. I just installed it to my windows computer, and I'm going to spend the rest of the night training it, and fine tuning my writing skills.

    I'm probably going to make a type of bot that automatically does the research based on a given set of keywords, so all I'll have to do is just read the article it spits out and rewrite it paragraph by paragraph. If I write 10 articles a day, I'll be able to make about $20/day from hirewriters, so if I write for 25 days each month, that's a really good $500/month income, which will be REALLY good for me. (I'm taking off the two days per week I'll work at the laundromart I talked about before. I think I'll go check it out first, and see if I could get the job)

    I have some work to do tonight, and I'm pretty excited. This can work out really well because I know for a fact that I'll have tons of downtime since I'm only doing the Youtube + CPA method/fiverr/and freelancing. Talk to you guys later.

    Another update: I wrote a 440 word article in about 20 minutes, so it should take about 3 hours each night to do 10 articles. That's not too bad for $20/day, and I know I still have potential to improve my typing speed. I'm going to bed now, so I'll talk to you guys in the morning.
