    About me
    My name is Mike and I'm 17 years old, I've been into IM for the past 2 years making a decent living for a school student, I have 2 more years to study in high school and then I will be forced to go to college and spend 4 more years there, not enjoying my life. The things I'm into right now are Youtube, SEO, List Building, Social Media and a bit of Paid advertising (mostly mobile). I will try to keep this journey updated twice a day with a morning plan where I state what I'm going to do the whole day and an evening one reporting things I've done. Also each month I will provide a report of my earnings as well as achievements and progress towards my goal.

    Plan
    At the moment my priorities are list building as well as building 1 video per day with a fully dedicated page seo-optimized, as well as building links to it using gsa search engine ranker. I will always be looking into fan pages worth investing and possibly building a PBN by the end of 2014. If my budget will allow it I will get serious into paid advertising in hopes to reach my goal through it.

    Tools
    VPS
    GSA
    Hostgator Hosting
    6-7 domains
    Optimizepress
    Quality Click Control
    Aweber account

    Budget:
    List building: 300$
    Mobile advertising: ~150$
    Seo, youtube: 50$

    Best of luck,
    Mike.

    Good luck. Focus your efforts into list building. I'm 23 and started when I was 16, struggled because I concentrated on the wrong things. I now make 5-figures a month because I concentrate on building my list as my primary objective for the past 18 months.

    Best of luck again. Don't give up and you'll find a way.

    Today's Plan (16 July)
    - Finish my sales page
    - Create a new video for my current niche and upload it to YouTube as well as On-Page optimization for it
    - Build 10 web 2.0 sites pointing to my older niche and build a tiered campaign with GSA for those web 2.0 sites
    - Create a profile for adult marketing on facebook and get friends

    What's the problem with hostgator? Used them for over a year and never had an issue with it, It's not like I use it to get millions of hits a day so the servers can't handle it.

    Good luck with your journey, I hope to see you succeed!
    Forget about mobile advertising as for now just build and uploads the video. And do you have gsa or its in the wishlist, because gsa +cb will cost you at least $170.

    Some people get good hostgator support, others get awful support.
    But then again, Hostgator is a large company with many employees, it's only natural that they have suckers on their team.
    Maybe try out some hosting provided by BHW members instead?

    Goodluck with your journey! I hope you can keep this thread alive for the coming 2 years!

    Thank you, regarding mobile advertising I still do it because the money are already in the advertising network, and I already have gsa, but actually use captcha sniper at the moment because of insufficient funds

    Yeah at least for me they reply in 2 minutes and always solve my problems, I will definitely try some BHW member's hosting in the feature.
    Also thanks for encouraging me with the post as well as your thread which motivated me to create a journey myself.
