    I started a blog a couple of months ago but due to lots of school work on the side, I had to take a little break. To make sure I keep to it as best as I can I decided to start a journey which I have to update at least once a week.

    If you see me slacking, call me out on it!

    What's the project?
    It's an affiliate blog where I try to give advice on how to use different IM tools.

    Starting budget?
    I have currently put $500 to the side for this project. After that I will invest around $200-$300 per month to make it grow.

    Expenses?
    Domain: $9,99 per year
    Hosting: $5,95 per month
    Mailoptin: $15,- per month
    Jarvee: $ 29.95 per month
    Theme: $29 one time cost

    The project itself
    I bought the domain on August 8, 2019. I started posting on the 3rd of February. Threw my link in some Facebook Groups and on Quora and got a little bit of Traffic from it. Did that from time to time and as you can see it worked out a little bit.

    For now:

    The first step is to rank for low hanging keywords and build my way to more difficult keywords as time goes on. From work, I already have SEO Powersuite which will help me find keywords, blogs within my niche for backlinks, etc.

    I don't want to write the articles myself so I will be using someone from BHW to write articles for my website and the outreach posts.

    Alongside I will pay someone to write a PDF which I will use to capture emails on the website with the email optin.

    After that is done I will be split testing Facebook/Instagram, Quora, Reddit, Linkedin ads to see which one brings in the best leads.

    Last but not least I will create/buy a couple of accounts to ask/answers questions on Quora and upvote it with the other accounts.

    If you have any questions I will be more than happy to answer them.

    Hahah I am from the now.

    Thanks!

    Ad budget is probably going to by $50 dollar for the different social media's I listed. See which one brings in the most leads and then switch the full budget to that platform.

    Thanks! Let's make it one to remember.

    You're welcome! And maybe we can work something out in the future

    Update 1:

    The website was facing some issues with a free form plugin. Spend a couple of days trying to fix this issue and eventually decided to buy a new form plugin which costs me $67. Got it installed and it seems to be working perfectly. Still figuring out some things but it was well worth the investment.

    What I did this week?

    • I created a list of keywords I can target. Will be ordering a few articles this week from multiple sellers to see who can deliver the best results.
    • Created a general layout for the free PDF I want to give away as a lead magnet for emails. Should be finished this week.
    • Thought of a way to get unlimited content ideas which I will also be sending to rewrite. (Will be sharing it later on if this works)
    • Created some web 2.0 and updated all my social media accounts ( Facebook/Twitter/Pinterest/Linkedin)
    • Bought a couple of answers for Quora from a seller here on BHW a while ago which were delivered this week.

    The small amount of traffic I get on the website actually landed me another affiliate sale today.

    Awesome! Would be great to know what you can help me with. Feel free to send me a DM and we can talk further.

    Thanks everybody!

    Jarvee is really nice for managing multiple social media accounts. I will use it to grow them and give an occasional boost to some of the posts I post on the different social media platforms. For now I will be using it to upvote answers on Quora but in the nearby future I will be using it for other social media accounts.

    EXTRA TIP:
    With Jarvee you can use Browser Embed to basically go into an internet browser. This gives you a way to circumvent the 10 accounts limit for $29. Just click on Browser Embed and create another account on another social media. Save the login information in Jarvee's notepad (or your own noterpad) and you can create a social media account for every social media with each proxy. You won't be able to automate it, but at least you will have a lot more accounts you can use.


    PS: I forgot to add the proxy costs per month.

    Added costs:
    Proxies: $22 per month
