    Welcome to my journey


    In this journey i will try to become better at SEO and create a passive monthly income.
    I have no SEO/Webdesign/Coding experience whatsoever.


    General plan:
    - To start off learn the basics of SEO
    - Become an expert in keyword research
    - Rank for easy but profitable niches on google (Eventually move to harder and harder niches)
    - Monetize with Adsense/Affiliate programs/Cpa/Banner space renting/...
    - Perhaps create a community/blog where i will launch my own product(s) - What kind of products you ask? I went from 0 to 1k/day in 10 days by advertising through Facebook ads and created a system i am using to get awesome CPC's. The blog/site/community would be a resource of free&paid information. I have some good tips&tricks that can't be found anywhere for free and i would release some cool things on the blog/site/community (To show people that i indeed give High Quality information). On the site i would eventually sell my method/blueprint to create successful campaigns on FaceBook (This would include the exact offer and network i used to create my first 100$/day on my second day ever promoting through Facebook.)
    I would also make people opt so i could provide valuable information through mails and keep the people on my blog (And to sell stuff ofcourse :) )
    So why am i not doing all of this?
    Simple i don't have the knowledge yet to create an awesome community and to cover X amount of posts so the blog keeps active. I could make maybe cover 2-3 weeks of posts but what then? (This would be ideal to do with a partner that has some valuable things to share etc... To bad i don't know ANYONE in real life that does any type of IM) and would would enjoy reading an ugly designed blog lol.

    Tools i will be using for this journey:
    - Google keyword planner
    - Photoshop
    - Gmail to contact potential customers

    I don't want to be "that guy" that reads forums for months/years and never takes action.
    I don't care what you think, at least i take action

    Goals:
    i have a simple goal for this journey. The goal is to create a monthly PASSIVE income of 5000$/month. When i hit this things can be scaled to higher amounts of $

    I will update this thread Daily or at least every couple days! since i work a full time job (50-60hours/week).
    I love spending time with friends,family and have hobbies but i work really hard on improving my IM skills (At least couple hours/day of studying and experimenting)

    Budget:
    I will have a starting budget of 200$ when i generate some sort of income from this journey all of it will be reinvested to scale things up!

    Bro didn't you clear over $1k in a day using facebook ads + CPA?

    I don't want to hijack your thread but if I was hitting numbers like that as quick as you did I'd still be testing FB ads.

    Either way good luck on your journey. As long as you're taking action and not doing what most newbs do (analysis paralysis) I think you're on the right track. :)

    -SB

    ps- Get some strong ass network links. They can be expensive but if you use them well you can rank for anything.

    Thanks

    Yes i hit 1k+ daily with cpa + facebook but that journey is done :) I hit 500-600% ROI last 4-5 days so no need for testing Facebook ads hehe (My system rocks :p). I just take action and i will see where this brings me, this is just a hobby for me now i care more about my IRL job where i know i get paid every beginning of the month (Not much but hey it's something :p!)
    I plan on making a PBN but not now it would be worthless since i have no clue what i'm doing SEO wise i know the Basics but i like to take it step by step.

    Thanks, yes i have been inspired by the 7878 method and Source-Wave. I will be giving it my own twist and see where it brings me.


    So short update.
    I'm ranking for few keywords already i won't build any Back Links for now and see how high i can climb.
    I siloed the website and it has no content at all just a header and maybe 25 words + an image

    thanks
    thanks

    update: i have now found 3 clients for 300$ each per month one i found through Facebook and chatted him up the other 2 are forum sponsors and hiring banners there. So i contacted them through mail and exaplained what i can do and they are in. so 900$ if i can 2 sites up to top of google (2 are in the same niche but different brands so i would list them on one) now i have to build a pretty site and actually rank it lol (All WP themes are ugly and not the style i want big ugly ass banner on top 99% of the themes are like that). After i made a decent looking website i'll probably buy a some high PR sites to get backlinks

    Short update: the rankings of of the website i purchased most of the KW are now ranked in google. I will let the site sit and see how high it can climb with no Backlinks, it has no articles just skilo.
    I am playing around with some "blackhat" niches now and AWM hacks/cheats/cracks/... the design is awful and the blogspot is just one post and a 200 word article and not even a download link i am doing for toying around lol
    Are these rankings longterm? Probably not i found something that works and take advantage of it ranking in couple of days, but when i can make money why not lol :D

    BH niche 1 (Monetized by AWM)
    [​IMG]

    Niche2 (No download links or anything its for funs and experiments might throw a link locker in there)
    [​IMG]

    I am gonna read up on PBN's and purchase probably couple high PR domains. Get the first 3 clients a rank and make the websites look decent.

    Let me get this straight. You have reached $30k/month from facebook ads which basically means all you do is tweak campaigns an ads and make money. And now you are starting a journey to $5000/month which involves a lot of hard work and patience?

    Something just isn't right here. I can sense that from your first journey. If reaching $1k/day only took 10 days of work(which isn't even hard work considering you were doing this as a side job) then we would all be millionaires by now.
