    So I have been a member here for about 5 months or something like that. I have been just reading alot searching out methods, but not really trying them out. As a matter of fact, I have tried SEO twice for about 1 month each, both were unsuccessful and was for the most part BlackHat which I think led to me not earning anything. Now that I look back on those attempts I see I did not think out my plan, and I did not spend enough time/ last long enough on these projects.

    I usually only made internet money off GPT's, but I realized that is not anywhere close what I could be earning with the same amount of time if I had my own website.

    So after reading some other journey's I realized it would be fun to try and would be highly rewarding. So I set my goal at $100 a day, that I know is very high but the payoff is huge.

    I have a few methods planned, and I am doing a few methods right now. The methods I am doing right now require me to do work for the money, like writing an article, doing a fiverr gig, or doing GPT offers. I am doing this because it is guarunteed money for the amount of work I do, and should be a good startup encouragement/capital.

    About Me
    Just to give some people an idea about me I am 18 years old, and attend college for one of the top Industrial Design schools in America. The amount of work needed to put into it is huge, but it is all about time management. I believe I can spend a good amount of time on this journey, and still get good grades.

    Methods
    #1 Textbroker: This is fairly straightforward, it is an article writing site that is very legit and nicely paying. This method is all about how much effort I put into it, but I hope to write 2-3 articles a day until my website starts doing good.

    #2 Fiverr: I haven't started this yet, but I have thought of what gigs I want to offer. I was hoping to make a writing gig, and Photoshop or video gig. I don't have a mic so the video one would be limited. Like method #1 I hope to only do 2-3 of these gigs a day until my website is fine.

    #3 GPT Refferal: For this one I will be making youtube videos about the specific GPT site, and hoping to get the viewers as my referral. I will comment on other videos and do all that sort of stuff to promote my vid. I will do this on multiple sites, and ones that have refferral contests, and signup bonuses/first offer bonus to maximize my earnings. I won't have this started immediately, but will slowly come into action, I hope to get $5-10 a day with this method.

    #4 Niche Site With Affiliate/CPA: c This/these I am hoping to be my big earners in the long run. I am hoping to get like 2-3 of these sites and have a few affiliates in mind. (I find an affiliate first, then choose a niche) But I am hoping that I won't be locking anything, it will all be affiliate like where they buy something or complete a survey related to the niche. For one of the niches I have in mind, I am able to make youtube videos and promote the site that way (start with this one first). This whole method will be the last method I start, but I hope to start as soon as possible.



    This journey isn't my top priority for my time, but I will do my best to make as much time for it as possible. If I get 2 hours a day with this method, I figure I will be able to achieve my goal.

    While were at it i'll update these at night, and since it's night I will post what I earned.

    Day 1
    Method #1- upd So far I have written 1 article, but I am about to go write another one right after this.
    Earned- $12

    Method #3- updI am using a method I came up with right now to get some refferrals every day (not the YT one) but right now I don't have any and probably won't for a few days (having difficulties with GPT site), but I have earned about $20 (not cashed out yet) in the past few days.
    Earned- Maybe $20?

    TOTAL: $12 (possible $32)

    Good Luck.

    If you are good at making logos you can make some good money making logos on fiverr.

    I might give that a try, thanks for the idea!


    It means Get Paid To, but it is one of those sites where you fill out offers that people normally use to lock files or stuff and then the (we) get paid for filling that offer out. Not that great of a money source, but it is for beginners.

    Sounds like you're off to a good start - having a plan and putting it into action is half the battle sometimes. Good luck!

    you basically write an article when you sign up and they give you a 3 star rating no matter what. Then there are people who have guidlines for articles, and you write them. I am pretty sure if you write the article according to the guidlines you get paid %95 of the time.

    then as you right more you move up levels, and the higher your level the more you get paid for 100 words

    Day 2
    cSo today I started up my fiverr gigs, but didnt get any sales (not that I expected any), but I started 3 in total, and hope to get some buyers within the next few days.
    Also that $20 I was talking about, well that kind of went bad, but it was a black hat exploit thing so I expected that. But I now know why it went wrong, and it is easily fixable, I just have to wait a few days to start again. And I might be able to get that $20 in a few months, just not any time soon.
    I probably won't start my third method (GPT referrals) until next week, cause it is easter weekend and I'm going home. But I still hope to get some articles written and any gigs I get.


    Method #1- I wrote 4 articles today for a total of $16, it probably took max 2 hours total to write these so honestly it isn't that bad of a rate, and when I get higher ratings I will probably be getting at least $10 an hour
    Earned- $16


    Method #3- Did a few offers on one of the GPT sites and got some money, hope to be completing more offers and getting around $50 a month from doing offers.
    Earned- $4


    TOTAL: $20

    Day 3
    Today was an alright day I guess. I only wrote 2 articles because 1. I hardly had any time to do anything today(and was super tired), and 2. there weren't any articles that I knew anything remotely about. Didn't get any orders for fiverr, is that normal? Because I remember a few months ago I started up a gig and got an order right away.
    Also I will probably not be able to do a whole lot this weekend because I went home, and it is Easter, I will try to get something done though.

    I hope to get my referral videos up next week, I know what I want to do for the actual video and how to accomplish it. I plan to upload like 5 videos on the first day maybe 10 within the first week, and then just comment on similar videos and like my own comments. But I will definitely have at least one or two videos done by the end of Tues.


    Method #1- Like I said only 2 articles today but I did manage to get $8 total. Hope to get at least one tomorrow.
    Earned- $8


    Method #3- Did Got a few more offers to credit, and I remembered I had a few sites where I had some money on them, and I cashed those out. I earned $5 through offers today, and cashed out $8 ($7 is being processed and should get tom, Sun, or Mon b/c of Easter) both of which had just been sitting there from a while ago, so I guess i can count it for today.
    Earned- $19

    *Note tom. won't be nearly this high I expect like $10-15 tom. And this was a rare thing so high because of the sites I cashed out on

    TOTAL: $26

    I wanted to try out textbroker, but I wasn't sure if it paid out well. I guess this changes my mind. Seems like a good way to get some starter money for some MNS sites. :)

    Good luck OP.

    Day 4/5
    Okay this was the weekend and I was at home, didn't really do anything. No time for articles or anything, but i did make $5 from GPT so I guess that is good. This forum was messed up and I couldn't post or view this for some reason so thats why.

    I decided to do my niche site before the referrals and stuff, I hope to get it up tom. and start earning.


    Method #1-efore Didn't write any articles, but this was an abnormal weekend. I did manage to get a $25 article though, but I just need to write it. Should only take one day.

    Method #3- Only got $5 through a few offers.

    I will update this again tonight with further details of today (monday)
    TOTAL: $5
