    Please don't be like this after reading the headline

    giphy-downsized.gif
    Cause I am not going to cut off anything like I mentioned. Why? because I can't fail. I simply won't. To keep my spirits up I also wrote some offensive words in small fonts.
    Coming to the point,
    I started my first journey here 30 or 40 days ago. Guess what? I FAILED. I wanted myself to get rich quick.
    What I did then:
    I know my niche. I found it would be a money pot for a newbie like me. I thought why not make some quick money coz I 'want' to. giphyTVHNYHCW.gif
    Yes, I started the journey before even indexing the site. I was desperate for money, or rather quick money, I wanted to do 70 sales in 7 days. I failed.
    Why did I fail?
    • I know very little how to build a WP site back then, I learned it in a couple of days though.
    • I wrote the content poorly, rewriting other competitor's content.
    • I never did KW research, I didn't know how to do it.
    • I thought only a little about the visitors, I was just concentrating on traffic, not visitors.( both are same but if you think a little, it is like I want the hole and not the wife.)
    • I put up random theme, I didn't create a logo at least.
    • I also had a bad host to back my site up. I wanted the hosting to be cheap and the site to be rich. Great decision LOL
    • Last but the important thing, I never knew what my visitors wanted in an ideal site.
    What I did this time:
    • At first, I did my keyword research, I found 260 keywords to my liking, I wanted to use most of them in my content. Ahrefs showed the overall difficulty to be 9, I know it is pretty rankable.
    • I categorised them into 3 sub-topics.
    • I analysed my competitors on the first SERP for these keywords. I wrote three long form articles for each of these subtopics and each was longer than double of the largest article my competitors wrote(I had a hard time putting this phrase together)
    • I wrote these articles researching on the keywords, on every one of them. I wanted the article to be long, but still with good content.
    • I downloaded free images from pixabay and inserted in these articles. I optimized the images too.
    • Then I wrote some other content for Homepage, The affiliate product review.
    • I tweaked the theme to my liking, I also switched to a better, faster host now.
    • I added the banners here and there.
    My Strategy to bring in 600 sales in 60 days:
    1.Facebook:

    • I will do group posting, manually on relevant groups with good engagement. I am planning to do this with 3 or 4 accounts to maintain the quality of the posts. I got this idea thanks to @BassTrackerBoats .
    • I will create a FB page for my site and start adding people, at least some of the people who won't go to my site will follow my page.
    • I will also try to interact with people and then message them via messenger and give them a discount link to the product.( I should look more into this,how to do it)
    • I will also be adding friend slowly related to my niche.
    2.Youtube:
    • Create a channel and upload quality videos, each created on a distinct LSI keyword or other low comp. keyword. I have 100s of keywords, so It is going to fill the channel soon. As I will be uploading two videos a day.
    • Commenting on related videos, I will also try to rank it up.( this thing I am not so sure, as the upvotes panel I am using is not working properly)
    • Soon after getting sales, I will buy out other influencers in YouTube.
    3.Blog Commenting:
    • I will be commenting on relevant blogs. Manually, thoughtfully. I shall use 'Dropmylink' for this.

    4.Forum Posting:

    • I will find relevant forums, post there helpful content and hopefully get traffic back to my site.

    5.Pinterest:


    • Create bulk accounts, then post from those accounts in different boards and add followers.

    6.Reddit:

    • I would post on subreddits relevant to the niche, add links after post stayed for a day.
    7.Social Bookmarking:
    I will just use Social Bookmarking services, there is nothing more special.

    8.Guest blogging:

    I should do this after having enough money.
    9.e-Mail marketing:
    This is an important thing for a website, to get repeated visits from a person.

    Last, but not the least:
    10.SEO:
    I am not much good at SEO, but can follow instructions. I have yet to do some Onpage SEO, I usually follow Charles Floate's vids. I will apply that. I also learned most of it here.
    Coming to offpage SEO, Above techniques will give enough initial boost, like Social Sharing, YouTube, Forums and blogs.
    I hope these will help rank at least some of the low comp. Kws.
    Later I will do broken link building, Guest posting to build quality links.
    I am not at all thinking in the perspective of SEO, I want to do first things first.
    These will grow links naturally, it is quite good for SEO.
    giphy-downsized (1).gif


    My Dedication:

    At first, I will be mostly concentrating on YouTube, Forums and blogs for a couple of days. Then, Facebook and others will follow.
    As I said earlier, I will be writing a blog post every day, uploading youtube videos( two or three per day). Also comment on blogs, forums and learn about my other methods daily.
    Expenditure: 13.5 $ on domain+hosting.
    Sales: 0
    Revenue: 0$

    Each sale will give me around 25$. I will post updates twice a week or so.
    I will also give all of fellow BHWers the privilege to suggest me.

    LOL what the [email protected]%$ I just said! I am desperate man, Give me some ideas.
    Deadline: 60 days from today.
    Thank you.

    That equates to up to 10 sales per day. I highly doubt you're able to do that especially within a short period amount of times. But good luck nevertheless.

    Seems like a great plan you got there. So probably no need to cut your head off, anyway seems bad for business doing that. Better watching GOT if you into that kind of things ;)

    I think you need to remove at least your little finger if this fails, or you lose any credibility on here, plus we need video and photo proof :D:D:D

    The fact that you aren't giving up means you haven't actually failed, just stumbled. You only fail when you give up, I wish you well

    The big guy comes here, I am so happy. But you scared me off for good. You would have also given me some suggestions to make this successful.
    I will give you a more solid proof than you asked for.
    Any thread suggestions regarding getting high traffic would be helpful.
    Like Fb, reddit, YT

    I follow your posts daily guys, I like them. And you are in my thread. LOL I love that. I would be more than happy if you point me to some threads regarding YouTube SEO and Facebook marketing, Reddit marketing.
    Also I will also do some paid marketing using some gigs that I bookmarked. The affiliate product is also pretty good paying commissions ultra fast, so it helps in further investing in the project.
    Cheers!

    Yes as some of you expected, I couldn't make it. But, and this is a big BUT. I made many of the things in my life, which others said "Impossible"
    So I will continue to hustle as hard as I can. And you know what I read a great book, it said burn those bridges behind you. You will be sure to achieve Success. I burnt them all. Now I have no other way than to succeed. I will succeed and this will be my biggest lesson I must never forget.
    To let me remember this forever, I shall impose a kind of punishment on myself.
    @MisterF @blogzandstuff @cindyrose888 @Absan @AquaticGamer @cyrusv
    For these people mentioned, I am giving away something. I will work as a VA for them with or without their consent:p for free. The time is not yet decided.
    The time is not at all important for me as long as it gives me the satisfaction of punishing myself.
    Also, I wanted to say a thing if someone wants me to get out of sight, I will gladly do. I will not make a post again if you dont want me to. Just comment 'go away' and I'll gladly go. Even if a single person comments that I will obey it, I won't post again in this great forums.
    Thank you
    -Rudrapada

    Don't give up, take a deep breath, grab a coffee and read the forum, ask questions, Interact. You'll be surprised what you can find
