Journey To $3000/Month - Affiliate Marketing, Social Media, And More! So here we are on the first day of 2017- January 1st, 2017. I figured if I was going to put together a journey, now would be a great time to do it. My goal is going to be to earn $3000/month. If I had a specific time I would want to reach my goal by, it would be by December 31st, 2017 (so basically 1 year from now). I thought about going for a daily goal, but I don't expect to be earning money every single day- especially at the start, so a monthly goal will be the smarter choice to go with. During the past 4 months (September, October, November, December) I have made around $1200 total from JUST Fiverr. I've gotten to be a level 2 seller from just 1 gig, and I have a 99% positive rating overall. The thing is, eventually I want to move away from Fiverr, because the quality of customers just generally isn't that great. I get 1 amazing customer who owns a legit business looking for work, but then I get 4 people who don't even know what they're ordering. While the amount of money involved for a specific gig might not be a lot, a few negative reviews from a customer who was too lazy to read the gig description to see what they were ordering, and you're screwed. This causes me to get quite annoyed and stressed out, and I'm kinda over it at this point. So like I said, eventually I hope Fiverr is eliminated as a main source of income, and becomes more secondary or gets dropped all together. I started really researching how to make money online and money making methods back in April of 2016. I can comfortably say that I know a lot about a lot of different methods, so I believe that if I can just stay consistent and be patient (which has been my problem up until now) I will have success and reach my goal (at least I better because I'm currently 20 years old living at home with my parents and while we get along great and they want me to do something I enjoy, college is getting forced upon me more and more, and I REALLY don't want to go to college). What methods will I be using to make money? - Affiliate Marketing (Niche-specific websites with products related to that niche through Amazon and/or Clickbank) - Social Media (Brand deals, Affiliate marketing, and something else that I'm keeping secret and on the back-burner for now) - Fiverr (Same thing I've been doing, hopefully I start earning more) - YouTube (I've been making videos for 8 years, so I know every secret to growing on YouTube in the book. The only reason I haven't been successful on YouTube is my lack of ability to be consistent and patient) A lot of people say "pick 1 thing and concentrate on it" but the thing is, I spend around 4 hours a day on my computer working and researching. There is no reason why I cannot do all of these things and maybe even more in 4 hours a day, especially since I already know exactly what I'm doing for 3/4 of these methods. Let me just touch on 1 thing. These are the methods I am going to be using to make money at this current point in time. Things can always change. If I manage to make $1500 per. month from social media, than maybe I would get rid of affiliate marketing on niche-specific websites, or something else. If something really isn't progressing, then why stick with it and waste time that can be allocated to something else? If you're wondering how often I will be posting updates, I plan on posting an update 1 time per. week- probably every Sunday. I will post the amount of money I made from my income sources, and also some stats from my income sources like follower counts, weekly website views, etc. If you have any questions about anything to do with my income sources, please feel free to comment them and I'll be happy to answer them! PS: Sorry if there is too many run-on sentences. I figure that this is just like a journal entry, so proper formatting and structure isn't extremely necessary.
