    Hello BHW members,
    First I want to thank each one of you for keeping me motivated and for sharing your bright Ideas, to introduce myself I'm 21 years old "student" living in north Africa, and first I want to share my story on how I started internet marketing and what I've been doing.

    I started 2 years ago, my best friend inspired me because he was doing some hack stuff and he was earning some pocket money, so I wanted to do the same (not hacking people of course just earning money from the internet) so I searched the internet on how to make money online, of course all the methods I found requires investment or skills and I was really broke and had no skills, but still I was learning stuff and searching in many forums and reading many articles about SEO and Internet marketing and at least I got an idea on how IM works, next the first think I did to take action is CPA but I was cheating because I did incentive (paying other people for sign ups) It didn't last for long of course but I made my fist $300 before my account got banned and I didn't do this with other Affiliate websites because I knew its a short term and It's WRONG so I moved on, I was thinking what to do next, and I got an Idea of creating a blog and publishing articles and doing social backlinking to get ranked, so I created a blogger and I signed up with unique article wizard to get free content (not unique duplicate stuff) and to monetize it I placed Google adsense ads on my blog, (I got approved from adsense after several tries it was really difficult to get approved), next I was bookmarking each article to 30 social bookmarking website and day after day I was getting more visitors (increasing) form search engine and so my adsense (not really that much), I saw one of my articles getting more traffic so I decided to put my clickbank aff link on it, and I didn't believe it when I got a total of 2 sales from that link (let just say 1 sale cause the other one was refunded), but of course it didn't last for too long I got a penalty from google and all of my articles didn't appear on search results (maybe because of duplicate articles or bookmarking too much), now I got $20 on my adsense account and $24 on my clickbank account, and of course I didn't give up I was still leaning more stuff in my journey, after months I found a website that buys articles reviews (any kind of reviews) from anyone and the best part of it is I knew a method from this forum on how to get UNIQUE content for free, so I got a large list of unique reviews and after editing them I sold them to that website and I made like $200 before he found out that i was cheating (yes again) I didn't know how he found out about it but anyways at least I got my $200, so for now I say stop cheating let move for some long term stuff, next I found a method on this forum on how to make money with Youtube partner so I took action and saw result from the first upload (luck) and my earning and views were increasing day by day until some random guy reported one of my videos because it's duplicate (someone already upload it and it's not even his video) so i decided to delete all of my videos just to keep my adsense safe and I earned like $25 from it, so I kept moving in my journey and by chance a found a website and guy who was selling his ebook on how to make guaranteed money and It was legit and cheap so I said why not let take a chance and try it, so I bought the ebook and I took action and month after month I saw some nice results and till now I'm still doing this method but the problem YouTube keeps deleting my accounts (because of aff links I think) and I have to start from scratch again and i don't like it when I have to start again, this really last month I made $110 from it, and I don't think i'll be doing well with this method for this month because yesterday YouTube deleted my 5 goldmines account, now I have only 8 more left including channels, beside that last week I found a software that sends bulk emails (go it from torrent I don't have enough money to buy stuff but I wish to) but i needed an email list, so I was thinking where i can get those emails quickly, so an Idea popped up and I said to myself what's the use of facebook emails?? (btw I had a program that most of you know that get target FB emails and IDs) so I googled and I found out that every email sent to a facebook email is forwarded to his main email, than I felt happy and I took action I have a target email list and a software that sends email and my best friend created an email for me from his own domain (btw my friend is not doing hack anymore he is a freelancer now and i'm happy for him), So I tested to get the emails to the inbox instead of spam and it worked after few editing and testing on yahoo and gmail and outlook, so I started sending those emails and boooom I got one sale from clickbank, and after that no sales, so i was wondering whats wrong so I logged to the email and I found many of messages that are sent are forwarded to me, Why !!! then I found out that facebook wont let you send bulk email to their emails (sucks), yes I know i was doing spam but hey I needed some money to start doing the legit stuff.

    Well that's all for now, there are many things I tried and I didn't mention because i didn't make any money of them and they are not worth sharing, so I created this thread journey to keep myself motivated and from now on I will post updates until I reach $20 a day with your help.

    What I'm gonna do now is testing some stuff and waiting for my money to invest them in Facebook ads cause I have a lot of hope buying ads from facebook and getting sales, hey! at least I know how to get target audience.

    What I have now is $160 outstanding balance in my JVZOO account (waiting to get paid)
    $80 in my Clickbank account ( I only need one more sale to get my first payments)
    and $45 laying there in my adsense account.

    The best part of my past journey I was too lucky to get all of my commission (I know it's nothing but it's something for me) and I didn't lose hope, I will not stop until I reach my goal and then another goal, i'll keep updating thanks again.

    (Sorry for my English).

    Great story! I'd like to know how long did you run and how many articles had you published before your blog got 20$ on adsense?

    Thank you! I saw the results on the 3rd month I think when I started getting more visitors until google kicked me out from their search engine, my articles were published on autopilot (autoblogging) 5 articles a day and some of them got high ranking on the first page.

    UPDATE

    Hi guys This is my update for yesterday, I didn't do that much actually cause this week is full of exams and I don't have much time, I only uploaded 8 videos to YouTube with my aff links.
    And I made a sale from my previous videos, and that was unexpected cause I lost too much accounts but I still have that few, I hope they will not delete them too.

    Earnings: $10.50

    Investments: $0


    Well that's all for now, and maybe I'll post tomorrow cause now I need some sleep.

    UPDATE

    Hi again, this is my yesterday's update. I did nothing for yesterday as you know I have exams and i'll do nothing for the next 2 days until I finish my exams.
    So Yesterday Clickbank sent my earnings for the first time, I though I still have one more sale to meet the criteria, but they even counted my 2 old sales from almost a year ago, so finally my first clickbank payments.
    Secondly I had 2 sales from my previous videos one of them is a sale rebill, well that's luck trust me.
    Anyways just after finishing my exams I will restart my adventure with IM marketing and Ill post every step until I reach my goal, that's all for now ;)


    Earnings: $41.98

    Investments: $0

    The website's name is Review Stream, but trust me I wouldn't recommend it they will rip you off and its just a waste of time if you write your own stuff, I was cheating that's a different story.

    Update of the 2 past days.


    I will be quick cause as you know I did nothing in these past days, I only made a sale yesterday with Clickbank.
    WOW since I posted my journey here I saw improvements even with doing nothing, but hey I finished my exams and it was a rough week for me, so today I'm continuing my journey, and I hope I reach my goal.
