    Hello all BHW members,

    I've been reading along this forum for a while and I've decided to start a journey to earning $10,000 a month using various methods of IM.

    I'll start by introducing myself. My name is Stefan, 25 years old and I'm from the Netherlands. I'm still studying (International Marketing) and doing an internship at the moment. My past experiences in IM are mostly adult content and webcam services. I've made a few bucks doing so, but I'm now going for the IM lifestyle, so I can start living using IM only. I started my own company recently, offering Webdesign, SEM and SEO for local companies. So far I'm still busy on gathering clients. It's more a hobby than anything serious, just hoping to get some extra cash in with little effort.


    My plan:
    I've turned one of my old websites (Omegle horny guys targeted) into a moneymaker. It's a simple chat interface and I bought 100k back links once on Fiverr. It now get's about 300-400 visitors a day through Bing and Yahoo. I've only started monetising it this week (yeah, stupid me) and it brought me $160 in the past 4 days.

    Step 1:
    Create another 5 of the websites as mentioned above, buying 100,000 back links once on Fiverr. It'll probably take a few months before it really makes me money, but since the investment is very low, I'll just give it a shot.

    Step 2:
    Thinking about a few other ways to make money. I'm currently planning on creating 10 micro niche sites (all varying niches) and driving traffic via Pinterest and SE's. I'm going for auto-blogging on all of them so the blogs keep gaining more content. Will be going for both Adsense income and affiliate links.

    That will be my first 2 projects. I'm still not sure if I'll have the content written or if I'll do it myself. Since I'm currently in my internship, I will probably write it while working (yes, it's an easy internship). After these 2 projects have been completed, I will be looking at other methods. I'm the kind of guy who likes to spread his chances, so the more method I use, the better I will feel about it. I'm not planning on giving up on any project I start, since the website that's currently bringing in money was dead for months before gaining traffic.

    I hope you enjoy my story. I will have a few hours each day to do some work. I have no tools at this moment for anything, but I will be purchasing some software for link building and probably a remote server to run the programs.

    Made so far: $160

    Good luck on your journey, but have in mind that buying 100k Fiverr links, won't help you rank all the time.

    Thanks all!

    (at)1337python
    I know, but since it worked for that one site, I'll try it x5. If they even convert once, I already make a profit. And with a bit of luck, each sites makes me $40 per day.

    Based on my personal experience I can tell you two things:

    1. It is definitely possible GO FOR IT!

    2. Whatever you do make sure it will last, don't base your income on adsense if you are going to do auto-blogs, eventually they'll kick you out. Don't promote affiliate products that might disappear or are in a "grey area" (pharmacies, gambling, etc). Stick to products/merchants you know will last or have plenty of reliable options to substitute them if they shut down. Try to differentiate as much as you can!

    I can show you screenshots;-) I've started tracking since the 13th again, since then I had 2034 unique visits, with most from Bing (818) and Yahoo (624). The great thing is, that it's only one page and doesn't have any content except a chat interface. You can see it at girls-omegle(dot)com. I'm currently trying to rank it on the keywords omegle and omegle(dot)com. I'm already high ranked in the SE on those keywords, but top 5 would get me 10-25x more visitors.

    For today, I will create the 4 other site (also targeting chat roulette). Converts since this topic has been made is 0, kinda disappointing after having 3 converts tuesday. But I guess I'll just have to be patient.

    As for my first MNS project, it'll be about recipes. I'm going to be creating unique content and probably will be making a decent website, so it get's known and get's visitors back. Here in the Netherlands we have a website full of 10.000's of recipes. I'll be translating one a day and then pinning the pictures to about 10-20 boards. That should get visitors coming and it should be ranking good in Google and other SE's in the long run. That'll probably come tomorrow.

    Other business success: I had a meeting yesterday with a restaurant owner and I can make a bid for a new website. Turnaround will most likely be around $900 for a days work.

    I've just been researching on translating the recipes. It's going to be very easy. When inserting in Google translate, the translation comes out 95% correct, meaning each recipe will only take me about 5 minutes. Other great thing is: my girlfriend will be competing against me on the recipes website. She will also make a recipe site and use the same method. We'll be competing for highest adsense and affiliate income:)

    Why? I learn from people posting their idea's, and I'm willing to share my idea's to others. The chance of replicating my success with this one site is very small. I'm just taking a wild guess with duplicating my site and method. I'm even willing to sell the template of the site for a few bucks. This is just something which is nice to get some resources. My big cash will come from other projects. One page sites will not get me my monthly $10k income.

    Don't use Google Translate! We don't know if in 6 months they'll set a new Algo targeting "semi-automated" translated websites as duplicate content, try another translator (Bing works pretty well) it is a bit paranoid but you never know with G. I've used the same strategy for other Languages and works great, just be careful!

    Using google translate or not, the text will still be different as I do edit it manually to form better sentences. Using another translator is a good tip though. I'll try and mix it up to get the more various results.

    No converts again:( I've set up one other site using the chat interface and will be setting up the last one as soon as my domain name has been transferred. Ordering the gigs on fiverr this weekend, to get back links. I'll then be finished with part 1 of my plan.

    Plan 2: Recipe niche using Social media to drive visitors: Still thinking about a good domain name for it. Will probably complete the entire project by sunday and will start adding recipes starting monday.

    New project: I've obtained a EMD+forum for a popular platform where contractors can find customers. There're a few critics on the site about reviews being removed because of legal issues. I'm going to use the forum as a platform where people have freedom of speech, and profit from that by selling advertisement space and adsense. Will have to go to my bank though to get legal insurance before launching it. Searches on the domain+forum have increased with 300% last month (they're having ads on TV, so it's becoming more know in the Netherlands).

    New project:
    I've purchased an Authoritysite for selling kitchenware. Will connect it to a few of the recipe sites I'll be making and put affiliate offers on there. I think I'll also use this domain to post recipes on along with offering kitchenware, as the domain name is very much like recipe.

    Still thinking about new niches I can target via Pinterest. Will probably go for 10 different niches to target the upcoming weeks. Once that is all in place, I'll think about making some bigger sites that can contribute to a steady income for years.
