    Hello,

    Going to keep this initial post short.

    I'm 20 years old and a Junior in college. I have been doing freelance PPC work since early June, and now focus on Facebook Ads exclusively. I got started when I was working a marketing internship over the summer and realized, 'If I don't get my own shit working, this is going to be my life.' That was the fire under my ass I needed.

    It has been going well. You can see my earnings to date below:

    It has been going well. But as you can see. It is very inconsistent. November I had a lot of schoolwork and a lot of personal shit I was going through and my client work suffered as a result. Thus, my goal going forward is to build a much more sustainable business. This includes building an email list, having digital products that don't require my time/attention to sell so I can generate income passively. And ideally through the combination of these 2 I will be able to get higher paying, higher quality clients as well. The combination of freelance work and selling digital products is how I plan to reach $10,000/month.

    $10,000 is my long term goal. In the short term my goals are:
    - 250 email list subscribers by January 31st, 2019
    - 1,000 email list subscribers by March 31st, 2019
    - $10,000 in monthly revenue (average) by September 1st, 2019

    I am planning on doing this with partnerships with people in the paid advertising/Internet Marketing space. IM gurus obviously get a lot of hate here on BHW but I can safely say I'm 1 of few that actually practice what I preach, and will never be selling here on BHW.

    I also have lots of ideas of how I will grow. I want to start a YouTube channel where I show knowledge, and do live audits of viewers campaigns. But my main goal now is to partner with people who have audiences and work with them.

    I've started a lot of journey threads and hope this will be the last one. Follow my journey and keep me accountable ;)

    Is this all profit? And good work so far. You seem pretty busy. Keep it that way and you will make it soon enough. Good luck!

    your website looks pretty good so far. i would replace the free ebook with a free consultation as a lead generator. in my experience it has better ROI in the long term. i'll send you my example in PM

    For the most part yes. My rough estimation on profit margin is 90%. Thank you :)

    That would be great, very much appreciated

    So do you manage the PPC Campaigns for other people or do you promote your own stuff?

    I manage campaigns for other people. I tried to promote Clickbank products through FB ads but the ROI was not there.

    How do you charge your clients?
    Per budget spend? Per initial set up?

    Good luck on your journey!

    If I had the skills, I would have created my own brand (whitelabel products, dropshipping etc)

    All the best on your journey, this seem like a solid goal!

    Maybe I can be one of the first to be reviewed on my website and campaigns

    Both. I charge $1,000-$1,500 for campaign setups. For ongoing management it's a mix of a fixed price and a percentage of ad spend, though I'm trying to transition to more fixed price jobs, since percentage of ad spend is highly variable and ultimately not a great business model for agencies (imo).

    I may do that in the future but it doesn't interest me right now.

    Thanks mate. Definitely can be, shoot me a PM :)

    Please tell me where on my site I sell 'dreams'

    Freelance sites like Upwork, and referrals for now. I want to build a better inbound funnel though.

    Sure mate, send me a PM and I can hook you up.

    How were you able to land the knowledge/experience in order to land clients? It's something that I'm interested in doing.

    The first client I had was an agency looking to outsource/whitelabel work. This is a great place to start as you can get started with a variety of clients and 'get your foot in the door' so to speak.
