    Hello guys! I'm a 15 years old UK student who plans on going to university and although I haven't stepped into the world of adults yet, a lot of things are already bugging me. How will I pay the fees for university? And what if i get a student loan? Guys with experience would know that paying back a student loan + taxes can drain your salary when you finally manage to find a job and this is what is worrying me the most. I'm an ambitious person and I have big dreams, you know, a couple of mansions, a wife and why not, a Bentley too ;) but if I want to achieve this I should start gaining experience in IM now so that when I'm older i can use IM as a secondary source, just to pay the bills and stuff. Also I would like to be able to sustain myself without the economical support from anyone, including my parents, my mum is going to get remarried to some guy I don't know because some kind of quid-pro-quo thing and because my mum said that she has been alone for too long. I really want to leave my house asap and this is one of the many reasons why I decided to undertake the treacherous path to IM success, and thus begins my journey to independence.

    My goal for this journey?

    Although I just said that I wanted to use IM to pay off bills, I'm still a teenager and a pretty spendy one at that! So my first goal would be to make enough money from FileIce to buy a pair of AirMax (£95.00). I might sound like a fool, and this could make you think I'm immature, but i'm a "if-it-can-be-done-tomorrow-i-won't-do-it-today" person so just let me enjoy this few years of youth that I have left ;) and as they say, ignorance is a bliss!

    Here is a quick description of the methods that I plan to use and the niche i chose (btw these methods are mostly from BHW or FileIce forum):

    I have already made a blogger account, and my current niche for the blog is "Dofus" a really popular MMORPG which i played quite a lot when I lived in France and I know a lot of people there are looking for (inexistent) hacks to get in-game money. My blog offers a couple of genuine tips on how to make kamas (the in-game currency) used as an appetiser to incite the users on downloading PDF files with 30 more tips. I also added other posts with things like bots and money generators with a link to my fileice download page. I also use addmefast to add followers to my googleplus so that the number of followers appear on my blog, this will make my blog looks more professional and genuine. Also using addmefast to get views and likes on a couple of stolen youtube videos related to my niche.

    A very basic method, perfect for a newbie like me, I really don't know anything more that the basics of the basics about PPD, actually the only things i know is how to upload and kind of drive traffic to your link. I mean it guys. I am open to any suggestions and tips as long as they are explained in an easy way that a stupid bum like me can understand ^^. Making my target more specific, being able to buy a pair of AirMax every month would be the ideal, so basically £95.00 a month i guess?

    I have been doing PPD for quite a long time you know guys! 4 DAYS!!!!! Nah, jokes apart, I haven't seen any results so far but I'm patient, as long as when this journey ends I can say "Started from the bottom now we here!"

    Thanks for putting up with me and I hope not to kill you with boredom, my "Day 1" will be posted tomorrow when I finish school, today I will just plan everything and get ready mentally,physically and virtually ;)

    DAY 1

    Hey guys, what's up?

    Me? Not so well, I yet have to see a single penny in my FileIce account but guess what? Yes, that's right! I got my very first click yesterday! It was from a link on my blogger, which would let you download a BOT for the game Dofus, it's a BE click, so Belgium I suppose, anyone knows how much are Belgium downloads worth?

    Apart from that one click, there is not much to say for yesterday, one of my youtube video was taken down and that's no biggie, 20 or so more googleplus followers thanks to addmefast, more views to my blog which were directed from my google account and that's pretty much it. Today I'm thinking getting more google followers, around 50 more if possible and then adding a few more posts to my blog and maybe advertise some way or another, I still haven't made any cash from IM, but this time i'm pretty optimistic.

    FWIW do not let the student loan put you off university. If it meant I would be paying back 10% of my salary for life I would still go, it's an unbelievable experience that you can't get anywhere else. And if you do manage to earn some money while at uni you will spunk it all on alcohol anyway, and at the moment it's not cost effective to pay it back before your forced as its a cheap rate atm so you gain % putting it in a savings account. And you only have to pay back on your salary AFTER 1 year and only at over £15k salary, so if you earn £25k, you only pay on the £10k. It will probably all change by the time you go but bare these things in mind and you will see that it shouldn't actually put you off going. PLUS you get living costs as a benefit you don't have to ever repay if your household earns less than 50k (maybe more now)

    Hey thanks for the info! Nonetheless of having to pay student loan, I will still be going to uni! But i just don't want to be tight on budget during those times and I want to be able to buy anything I want. Btw I hate alcohol and even if I did like it, I would spend my money elsewhere ;)

    Have you tried Microworkers yet? You said you need £95 for AirMax trainers, so that would require you earn about $5.30 a day for 30 days. That amount is possible with Microworkers.

    The good thing about Microworkers is that you can do the jobs straight away and know you'll get paid. It's not like Fiverr, etc.. where you need to put up a gig then hope you get orders.

    Mmmh, I've never actually tried methods to make money such as Microworkers because you don't get much at all and I would also like to do PPD to gain experience which can help in a long-term economical growth. Thanks for the suggestion though might give it a try.

    DAY 2

    Hey guys, how you doing?

    My day 2 (yesterday) wasn't much, I just got more google followers which I'm sure will be of great help in the (hopefully) near future for my PPD journey. I've done my share of tedious liking and subscribing for Addmefast credit points so that I can get more followers but you know, it's just the usual routine these days. Today I will make sure to post a couple of articles on my blog to increase views, I've read a few posts all over BHW and some of these were really eye openers! Especially the post about: "The Real #1 Reason Why 95% Of You Will Always Fail - No Matter How Hard You Try (Not allowed to post Urls yet, sorry ><).

    My balance in FileIce is still 0 and i haven't had any clicks at all, but after reading that thread, I see things from a different prospective so I don't really mind not making money yet, but I might take into consideration tweaking my google account + blog+PPD method. I'm open to suggestion as long as they can be accomplished by a newbie like me.

    I can see you're in the right mindset for this one bro, and imo that's one of the most important things. So keep it up and don't give up, as money will come. Wish you all the best.

    &#8203;DAY 3
    Good Evening guys,

    Guess what? Yup ^^! I bought a couple of AirMax! But ... it wasn't from the money I made online (0). I feel a sense of guilt, but I'm going out in a few days so I decided to buy them regardless of my set target. My FileIce account still hasn't hit £0.01, which is pretty sad but I have an iron will and I'm pretty patient. I will keep using the same method for a few mrs days, then I will have to change because if I still don't make a penny then it means I am doing something wrong. As I always say, i'm open to suggestions and such, I would also like to ask if anyone know how much FileIce pay per download for each country and I would also like to thank everyone for the much needed moral support. THANKS GUYS!

    I suggest that you remove your niche in the first post, you wouldn't want to increase its competitiveness to rank.

    For some reason I can't edit my earlier posts, is it the newbies restriction?

    Hey, how you doing?

    Although I haven't made a single penny nor had any clicks on my FileIce, I feel like i'm getting closer to reach my goal! My blog is getting the usual 20 views daily, from France mostly, which is good because it tells me that I'm getting the traffic I wanted for this journey. My blog-dedicated google account is increasing it's followers, I hit 300 the day before yesterday and still counting, of course links to my blog and file ice account are posted all over my account. I'm using addmefast to share my google posts which is working to my favour. Only thing I need now is how to make this specific traffic download my files and make money! Open to any suggestions and thanks for following this monotone journey guys!

    Hey guys, how's life?

    Here it's not going too well, I haven't made much progress, still no clicks and no ££ on my FileIce account, but I figured it wouldn't be easy to make money with PPD. Today I instructed myself on other methods to make money by reading some posts here and there around the web and found something about Clickbank. Now I wouldn't want to BS but I understood that you get paid a commission fee which is a % of the item's price right? Sounds alluring, but I would have to create a completely different niche for that and I'm not sure if I will be able to sell the products anyways. Apart from the main routine (Addmefast + google followers/shares) I didn't take much action. I created a fiverr account but I would be seriously surprised if anyone decides to buy my service. I have never cashed out any money from the net, this is a sad truth, but I think that I should keep trying and this is one of the main reasons to why I decided to post my journey in BHW, to be able to document my progress, to receive help from IM gurus and hopefully, to make this a useful and inspirational journey which shows that even a newbie like me made some cash (if I make any). I'm always open to suggestions and feel free to give any tips or other useful comments. Thanks!

    Hey guys, what's up?

    Today I came to realise a horrible truth! PPD is not the way to go for me. It's been a bit more than a week and I yet have to make a single penny on FileIce, this clearly shows me that I'm doing something wrong. My starting goal hasn't changed, I will still try my hardest to succeed and make £95.00 a month, but not with PPD anymore. However, I will keep growing my google plus audience, it could come in handy in the future, and if someone knows how to take advantage of that, please enlighten me. My revolutionary method consists on NSFW Tumblr blogs, in the first days I will develop a steady audience and then put ads on my Tumblr blog. But I have a few questions that I would like to ask:



    1. Does Tumblr allow ads on NSFW blogs?
    2. Is it true that Adsense will ban me if I put their ads on a site related to adult content?
    3. What are the best alternatives to Adsense for a Tumblr NSFW blog?

    I was also thinking of buying my own domain so that I can direct my Tumblr followers there, but for that I will need a budget first which I don't possess now. I will be grateful if you guys answer my idiotic questions and thanks for following me!
