    I have a few thousand dollars and I wish to invest those wisely so that I can achieve a target of 1k per month of income in 1yr. After getting even 1k per month, my target would be to boost the rankings/ of my sites and get 5k income at least in 1.5 yrs of time. My actual target is to get 10k+ income in 1.5 yrs.

    I wish to explore all the good areas of IM and wish to test & learn n earn:
    1 - 3 Clickbank related websites with 20-30 articles
    2 - 2 big sites with content of approx 100 articles per website within 1 year.
    3 - 2 Long term sites with content on very specialized niche + affiliates but expecting a consistent income.
    4 - 1 Site on Adsense + Amazon affiliates for experiment

    My plan is to finish creating these sites in next 4 months max. I will keep on adding content in slow manner and will make slow links after 2-3 months.

    I am learning IM and hoping to learn more in next 6 months as what I have learnt that you learn IM only when you take some action. Seniors who are earning more than 10k on this forum are my inspiration.

    I have started working on Two sites (point 3) and will finish these by this month end. I am doing deep research on the topics and writing the articles. I will also order 10 articles for certain kwds.

    Next month target would be clickbank or other commission sites (Point 1). I have a unique idea for the website design n content.

    I have a problem with me that I never doubt myself whether I can do it or not. I am sure that i have everything to make myself successful in IM like (in my opinion) : Patience + Hardwork + Programming n Web Design skills + Self-confidence + Love to take risks + Quick learner.

    Lets see what I will achieve. Also, please provide your suggestions on my approach.

    Good luck! My 2 cents is to pick one of the methods above that you listed, and to stick to it. Don't try to create a handful of different sites before you know how to create one money making site.

    Thanks you for your valuable suggestion.

    At present my only focus is clickbank + specialized affiliate (Point 1 n 3). Rest of the sites, i want to create (design + adding 20+ articles for start) just to give them some age and I can work on those after 5-6 months (affiliates possibly again). Meanwhile, I can focus on rankings of 5 affiliate sites and start building my PBN. I think it is not a bad approach.

    Keep updating this thread until you meet your goal. Good luck!

    What is your main traffic source? Google?

    If your traffic source is Google, what about your SEO off page strategy?

    1K per month with the plan you have above should be easy to achieve as long as you stick with it. I wish you luck on your journey.

    Good Luck Pal! You seem to have pretty solid plan there, in my opinion.

    Keep us updated...

    This is the status so far:
    - Designed the two websites
    - Added 10 pages of well researched content on each site

    Researching and writing content is quite a tiring job. I can't order the content (except general blog articles for some kwds) for these sites as I know the writers will not do the research in the way I am doing.

    Working as per deadline: will finish both sites by this month end and then I will keep on adding some content to keep the site fresh.

    The thing is: I want to craft n carve these two sites not just create these.

    Good luck with your goals. I have kinda similar plan like you (multiple projects). You can check out my journey thread if you wish :)

    I am confused though: you say you want to make 1k/month a year from now but then 5k/month from 1.5 years from now? Or do you mean: 1k/month a year from now, then 1.5 years passes and you make 5k/month and then another 1.5 year passes and 10k/month? :D

    Sorry for the confusion. 1k is my minimum benchmark and 5k is my max target in a year. And, 10k is what I dream of achieving in 1.5yr.

    I read somewhere that to be big we have to think big first and have to put consistent efforts. So, I set an aim of 10k stable income for me in 1.5yr.

    If you accept my opinion, I think that you should focus most on the 2 big sites. Why not making more of these authority sites and trying to promote clickbank on them?

    That is the exact plan for authority sites. I have 4-5 niche for them with medium competition.
