    To start things off, let me introduce myself. I am a college student from India that wants to make some side money to help make college life easier (more booze and weed) without feeling like a douche bag for spending my father's money.

    My skills and what i plan to do:

    - writing: I have a decent command over english and I can write articles in various tones (humorous, serious, informative etc.) so i figure i can write article writing gigs on fiverr to generate income from there.

    - graphics design: I've taught myself photoshop and can make website logos / banners / fb cover pages etc really well so I will probably make a gig out of that aswell.

    - Recently joined clickbank and i will try to promote some products from clickbank with youtube videos and perhaps blogspot (i will make my own website if i ever make any money from IM, I do not want to invest anything yet :p)

    - well endowed


    what i need help with:

    - The gigs i want to create on fiverr seem to have big competetion so what is the best way to optimize mine so that i get atleast some buyers? I am sure they will be repeat customers as the work i will give them will definitely be worth more than the 5$ they are paying.

    - How do i go about doing keyword research? Things in the health niche seem to have large amounts of competition so i dont think its worth my time trying to promote clickbank products fitness products. I just use google adwords tool right now but is there any better method to do keyword research?


    Will update daily irrespective of if i have done any work that day or not. Good luck to me! Thanks for any advice offered

    i liked that you will use blogger [ blogger has a huge potential if you know how to use it ]

    go to linkcollider get some fbshares for your posts and some tweets [ directory submission ]

    you will get every thing there for free [ including seo ]

    Day 1
    - Created fiverr logo design gig with 3 pictures of my work. Not sure how to promote it further, i made sure to include keywords and such. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    - I already have an article writing gig from long ago that i will now continue, buyers simply stopped at one point but i have 100% rating on it and all good feedbacks. Also unsure of how to promote it further, advice would be great.

    - Signed up to clickbank and found a few items that i might be interested in marketing, will work on some videos for these tomorrow.

    Day 2
    today i posted my link on various forums and advertised my fiverr gigs further. No sales yet, 0 views on my gigs still. Hopefully this will change in the near future. Have not started work on clickbank yet.

    Also signed up to iwriter today and submitted a few articles. They are pretty well written so i am expecting them to be accepted.

    Good luck on your journey. I like that you set yourself a realistic goal with $10/day. Just test some methods until you find one that you enjoy to do and that actually makes you some dollars. Keep on working and the first $10 day will be there soon.

    God speed on your journey. Don't forget to explain HOW you are using the writing sites, Fiverr, or other portals to make money, not just list what sites you are using.

    You can use the tried and true method of Google Keyword Tool via Adwords but I use Ultimate Niche Finder.. its a really good AP for finding quality keywords.. :)

    Day 3

    My article on iwriter got accepted but I only got a rating of 3 stars on it even though I put in a lot of effort researching my topic. Oh well, atleast i got paid for it i guess.

    videos uploaded: 1

    iWriter: 2.43$
    Fiverr: 0$
    Sharecash: 0$
    clickbank: 0$

    Day 4

    - Another article i wrote got accepted on iwriter (finally got the 5 star rating it deserves). I dont like how i have to come up with good quality work for such little pay though (500 words for 2$ :/). Oh well, I guess when i move to elite work it gets better.

    - No downloads on my sharecash as of yet, although I have got 22 clicks on my link. Im still not sure how to rank my videos.

    - Created a website to further promote my PPD files, i worked on some meta tags but i have no idea how to rank the site. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Keep in mind that I do not have money to buy any SEO tools just yet.

    - No gigs sold on fiverr, I tried to contact some website owners about my service but have not received replies yet. Hopefully this will pick up eventually.

    Iwriter: 2.43$
    fiverr: 0$
    sharecash: 0$
    clickbank: 0$

    total earnings from all days:4.66$
