Yo yo. Celebrating 1 year on BHW & IM today (or well, tomorrow) and I figured it's a good time to start a journey and keep track of progress and set up some goals for myself. I found this forum (can't remember how) in early 2017. I didn't know what SEO meant, dropshipping, affiliate, CPA, all of this was new to me - But it sure was interesting, making money online. This is exactly what I have wanted to do since I was young, since I hate 9-5s. I quickly started trying methods and learning what I needed to know. I ranked an ecommerce and made some money, as well as app reskinning and CPA. Didn't make much, but at least something. 2018 started bad for me. My shitty Shopify store was my main source of income, and it got hit with several scam orders, I lost over $600 in a week and I just lost all motivation for drop shipping. Slow shipping times, customers complaining, chargebacks and products that suck ass. Send proof here and there, answer angry emails from customers, go minus instead of profits because of scams, bla bla bla. I sold my Shopify store a few days ago, which also meant I lost my "main income" as well.. I had to come up with something quick to have a recurring income. So, I researched some niches and started an ecommerce selling digital products and now making the easiest money I've ever made. I found digital products to be a lot better for various reasons: Fully automated & No shipping time, automatic instant delivery via email Higher profits, since you create the product once and resell the same thing Lower competition since every noob in the IM-game can't sell/create these products (For example: Anyone can start selling Drones by going on aliexpress, but not everyone can sell Pinterest bots or Wordpress plugins - Ya dig?) I have two websites selling the exact same digital product. Why 2 sites for the same niche/product? To dominate page #1. The two sites are selling the exact same product, I just rebranded & reskinned it. SITE #1 The first site I made is ranking #3-7 for several keywords, should rank higher soon. The site has been indexed for 3 weeks now, it has DA/PA 1 and is ranking spot #3 (unbelievable, content is king.) This site is normally making $50-$120+ profit/day on autopilot since then, but today I was close to cracking $230 (one order is stuck on "pending" so we'll see). More than my goal of $200+/day, but it doesn't count since it's not consistent, just a lucky day. I've never had $200+ profit in one day in IM (at least autopilot) since I started a year ago, so.. that's cool. I never anticipated this since it cost me like $100 to start & rank this site. (This site also makes $5-$50/day from CPA but I don't count that in since it's usually on the lower side) - SITE #2 I started site #2 a week ago since the first site took off so well, I thought I should take over page #1 by having two sites. This site is currently on page 4 or something (it's new, but still has had sales somehow). I want both of these sites to be on page #1, just that alone should help me past $150 a day consistently. I also have certain niche targeted sites I'm going to buy banner ads on later, that should definitely get me there, if the ROI is good and banner prices are cheap. I invested more in the SEO for this site, because I believe it has a better conversion rate design/brand-wise. Total investment: ca $150 - SITE #3 (Just started) Since the two other sites are basically done and just have to wait for the SEO to yeast, I'm starting a third site in a similar niche. Not digital products this time, but digital services, so more hands-on. Keyword has ca 25,000 searches and KWF 20, checked out my competitors and their sites are weak. I should be able to get to spot #2 without too much effort, #1 might be trickier but I'm happy with #2. I found this niche by accident yesterday and immediately thought "I should be able to capitalize on this" After a few hours of research I figured out how to provide this service myself, if I buy/code my own software. Or I can hire a VA/outsource it, will see how I do depending on order amount. Hiring a VA would make this "business" automated as well. Soon after I found the niche I prepared the layout, structure and silo for my site, as well as gotten domain, hosting and started building the site. Pulled a 24h stretcher, no time to waste. The site should be done within a week, will do everything except backlinks myself. I should be able to rank with a total budget of $100 on this one too. Might put in more, we'll see. TO DO LIST: Buy banner ads to drive more traffic to site #2 Add more payment gateways (except Stripe of course) on site 1 & 2. Add more content to product page on site #2 Finish site #3. Need to write at least 5-7k content. Site setup. Social media accounts. Bla bla bla. GOAL: $200+ daily, consistently. Not $115 one day, $70 the next, then $160, $270, $120 and so on. No! Everyday over $200+, or goal hasn't been met. Hopefully I can reach it, we'll see. 2017 was my learning year, 2018 is going to be my money making year. Lets make some money!
