    Hi guys,
    as you can see from the title of topic i'm a newbie in IM and i would like to finally make some money. This is not that type of a journey where i will want to make a 50$ / day. NO. This is the journey of the starting IM who want to make his first money on internet. In this Journey i would like to ask a lot of questions from you guys, experienced sharks. I will be very pleased when struggling newbies (like me) would teach from this thread a thing or two.

    Current Situation:
    Little bit experienced in seo.
    Few Websites making cents per week.
    Have whole summer vacation, when i can work.

    Starting Capital:
    13$

    Ideas:
    As you can see my starting capital is very low (Money i can invest to this site). So i plan to build a cheap wordpress blog with niché of Gaming (Game/Software Downloads). I will buy some cheap domain for $1 and will found some decent free hosting.
    (I Actually know about one free hosting. Specifications of this hosting is: 2GB of storage, 30GB of traffic, but with forced ads in footer. What do you think about this guys?).

    Content:
    Content of this site will be obviously specifications/lore of the game/software i will list for download.

    Possible Monetization of the site:
    a d f l y - redirecting user to the actual site where he can download the game/software.
    AdSense - putting ads on the website

    Investing the rest of the money:
    So i still have that 12$. For this money, i would like to buy 2 gigs on fiverr. (SEO BACKLINKS)

    Questions for you:
    What do you think of my idea/niché?
    What do you think about that free hosting?
    Should i just rip the description of the game and put the link to download, or should i write some of my articles and promote CPA offer? for example Gaming Headset.
    How about the monetization of the site? Is my ideas bad or do you have some better idea how to monetize the site?
    Where should i spend that that 12$ ? Is the Gigs i mentioned OK or should i invest the money to something different?

    Thanks for reading my Journey, i will keep you updated. I appreciate all the answers.
    P.S. Sorry for my terrible english, i'm not natural speaker.

    Dont buy fiver gigs for seo, not worth it. Keep the 12 dollars. And if you have to invest money, do it here.

    Anyway GL and ill follow your journey :)

    You are using adfly and adsense together on a gaming download site? If you are doing something blackhat, you may get banned from adsense.

    Thanks for the fast replies guys

    stentt & theunborn so should i keep that money or invest it to some seo service? if yes can you recommend me some trough pm?

    passionatewriting so should i just use a d f l y and PPD/PPI?

    btw. i would like to invest some of that money, because i know its hard to get unique and targeted traffic. on the other side 10 dollars isnt that much :)

    a d f l y is a good way to start but not the best. You might want to try something else like adsense,content locking or payperinstall and see if that would work any better. You might not get as much conversation like a d f l y but you sure will get paid more than they can offer. Also a tip if you want to try double what you are making find a different link shortener that pays and use that site to shorten your a d f l y link. and if you trying to redirect to software try payperinstall im sure you can work it out.

    Good luck on your journey

    Hey men if starting I think you should do PPI. it's very easy to earn 10$ a week on it. in just about 20 youtube vids you could get 5-6 dollars a day. Goodluck on your journey :D

    You serious? Goals are meant to be achievable. S/he may achieve it in a few days, then move on to $50/week, $100, etc.

    If they came in here saying Journey to $100 a day, total newbie wish me luck, people would roll their eyes. That's how people set themselves up for failure. Taking long term goals and trying to get them in a short amount of time. This is a marathon, not a sprint.

    They have a plan, they plan to execute, and they plan to reap the benefits.

    Nothing wrong with aiming low. Better than aiming high and not achieving the goal. Once you hit your mark, just scale up.

    Make goals big enough so when you reach them, you can be proud about that.

    I dont try to get OP motivation down, but this makes me laugh, this forum with all those threads $10/week turns into TheBotNet forum. $40/month wont make any difference. If he want to make something good and make cash, he should aim for at least $100/week, i could understand that, thats some monthly salary in some countries. $40/month wont even pay interner and electricity bills.

    Right, I understand where you're coming from. But he's a complete newbie to the technique. I've never sold lemonade before, but I wouldn't go into it with the mindset I'm going to make bank. Basically what OP wants right now (from the looks of it) is to recoup any money he puts into it, learn a bit more, reinvest and go from there.

    OP also only has $13 to work with. If he reaches his goal in the first two weeks he has a 53% return on investment. If they find success they may be able to invest $130 and make $70 a week...on and on until it plateaus.

    It's probably less of a money making scheme and more of a learning experience.

    If you want to achieve $10 per week easily, just make 1 or 2 MNS's, get them ranked, and if you do your KW research correctly the site(s) will almost rank on their own, however you will get away with doing just a little SEO yourself without paying out on Fiverr. Put adsense on and even Amazon. Easy! Good luck!

    As many of you said, my goal is pretty low and that's because i didnt really make some money in IM ever ( i tried few times ). When i will reach this goal, i will more forward invest more money to my projects and will set my goal higher.
    PS. Even that 10 dollar a week will be a big win for me.

    I'm going to acually build up the site tommorow.
    I little upgraded my monetization idea and a d f l y + PPI will be my choice.

    Dont use adfly , and just stick with PPI. Adfly wont make you anything and will scare away your PPI installs ;)

    If you really wanna get $10/week, then best way would be to get bunch of YT accounts , buy em off fiverr, then Download bunch of vides and upload videos on YT promoting anything you can think of, check out whats popular, and find good video, download and reupload with PPI link. You will hit $10-$50/day easily if you work on this

    Nice to see a (very) realistic target. You certainly can achieve it and it looks like you are approaching it with the right mentality. All the best with your journey and I hope to see your next post for $1000 a week!
