Before I begin, let me tell you a little bit about myself. I'm an 18 year-old guy who's been into IM since the day I discovered it. I'm finishing high school in about 2 weeks, and today, I got my college acceptance letter. I'm into Civil Engineering and I plan on opening my own real estate company someday, but IM has always been my passion. So I figured: I can do both. GOAL: $10,000 by January 2015. That's about all of my college fees. I'm starting this journey thread for 2 reasons: 1- It's a good place to write down my progress as well as share it with other people who can make use of it. 2- It's a good way to get advice from the awesome members of this forum. I've already made some progress before starting this thread. My main source of income is PPD. So far, I have earned a total of $250 (in about 2-3 months). I used $80 to buy GSA SER. I also bought a few domains for my niche sites, uploaded a few YT and DailyMotion videos, and boosted them with views. So, my tactics in a nutshell: Video Networks (mainly YT) + Search Engines (mainly Google) driving traffic to a website on which I display my niche. Next step: I'm just going to scale it up. If one niche can get me about $100/month on auto-pilot, 10 niches can get me 1000. 20 niches can get 2000, and so on. Moreover, I'm going to work on more lucrative niches, and going to work harder and smarter to increase their exposure. That's about it for today. I'll update this thread every time something new happens! Here are my earnings so far: Month to date: $79.01 I currently average at about $3/day. Your suggestions will be very appreciated. I also think having a mentor will make my goal much more achievable, as I am not very experienced compared to the rest of you here on BHW. So if you want to mentor me, just send me a PM, I'd be very grateful. Have a nice day everyone!
