    Some of you know that I am from Syria. And all of you should know what is going on in Syria. Me and my parents are the only ones in our family who were able to leave the country so fast because we have a Canadian passport.


    But the rest are still struggling to live. They barely have any money and they can't even afford some diesel to get a little warm(fuel used for fireplaces in Syria). Electricity comes on like 2 hours a day and on top of all that there is always a chance one will get killed by the army or the rebels.


    Some of them were able to escape as refugees to Lebanon and Turkey but they're also struggling to live as it is almost impossible for them to find jobs. I tried the best I can to help them a bit financially while working offline but that is not enough. I am an interior designer and a graphic designer but I have no certificates so it's hard to find full time jobs. I only do freelancing.


    So just to let you know this journey is not for my own needs in any way. I am very thankful to be safe outside of Syria and would ask for nothing more than for it to stay that way.


    Methods I will use:


    Pinterest: Right now I have a recipe website pulling in at least $20/day. Yesterday was my first $45 day. This in no way will be my primary source of income because I know the danger it holds if you rely on it too much. You can get banned after you are making $100/day so I can expect the worst but I will try to make the most of it while I can and use that money to invest in bigger projects. If my adsense account gets banned I will sell the recipe website so it won't be a total loss. It receives 1500 - 2000 visitors a day with about 1 hour of work a day.


    I used to post only 4 pins a day and boost them with accounts but now I will start posting 20 recipes a day and repin them to many group boards.


    Authority Site/s: Now this is the more stable kind of income. I was working on a how-to website (like wikihow.com) but someone suggested that I work on something a little more specific for now and build that website slowly and steadily. This is to see some success in a shorter time. So I took the advice. I will start working on a new authority site soon. I will be writing articles myself for now. 5 articles/day for now.




    Facebook PPC: The reason I love this method is that once you found something that works, you can scale things up dramatically. But for this you need to not be afraid to spend a lot of money on testing. Right now I am not at that point. Once I am I will start investing money in this direction as well.


    I will be updating you with earnings and things I will do and things I did. Maybe not everyday but I will try my best.


    Goals for Today:


    -Find my authority website niche.
    -Post 20 recipes on my recipe website.

    Best of luck on the journey. Authority websites do take quite a bit of the to start earning, but once they do you will be making a lot off it. I would recommend you stagger the content on your sites as much as you can (don't posy everything at once) do them like once an hour.

    For pintrest the majority of traffic is 40+ women, and a lot of the traffic is at around 10-12pm so use that to your advantage to know when the best time to pin stuff.

    I don't know much about the story of that child. But everything you can think of(the worst of the worst) has happened in Syria. Some of what the article contains is untrue(such as that al Qaeda owning chemical weapons and making attacks) that is just stupid they have no idea what is going on there. But I do want them outside of syria.

    Look at this little kid being saved from under the rubble: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KRgO2GS5rGE

    Anyways I don't want to make this a political thread you get my point. Thanks for wishing me luck!

    I can't even watch that video till the end bro, may God bless that kid. Do you have any recommendation for any legit charity or any other organization to which financial assistance like donations can be offered to help the people in Syria? I have some ideas for raising funds.

    All charity organizations are stealing money none of them actually deliver it. There was a charity organization in the gulf to raise money for Syrian children and they raised millions of dollars(from rich arabs) and the next day you find refugees complaining about lack of food and clothing. The best way is to actually go visit Turkish refugees yourself and offer help.

    My recipe website is a website that has recipe images with a link to the original recipes. I drive traffic trough pinterest.

    Authority website is a website that covers everything related to a specific niche and contains a huge number of articles around that niche. Google tends to give authority and rank this website higher in the search engine for keywords related to that niche. Here we will rely on the accumulation of the traffic driven by the rankings of many long-tail keywords.

    You need $200, $2,000 or $200k?

    I am confused. If you need $200 then hustle some articles and design services and you can get that pretty quick. You write in English very well so you can get decent rates.

    Whatever you do don't put money into PPC if you can't afford to be risking it.

    Best of luck.

    Sorry what I meant was that I need at least $200 a day and not just $200.

    And I did already lose a lot of money in ppc wish I saw your advice before that.

    So yesterday I picked a rather very broad niche to build my website about. I did this because I didn't want there to be a limit and wanted this website to be ever-scalable .

    Do you guys think that this will have a negative impact on my success?

    Anyways yesterday was a very good day pinterest wise. I had a couple of pins go viral and received over 3000 views and made $55


    Unfortunately today seems like it won't be the same. Guess we'll never know until the day ends.

    Today I have an offline design job that will take up most of my time so I may not get too much accomplished. Might buy a domain and setup hosting for my website if I decide for sure the niche.

    It's really noble what you are doing man. You have to keep going no matter what happens; bans, deleted accounts, days with zero income.If you are going through hell, keep going.

    Be strong and good luck, I hope you get to $200/day in no time.

    Het man good luck with everything. I think you should look into gofundme.com
    Its a fundraiser and if you have some online friends for example facebook, twitter, maybe BHW. Hell with some IM you get your page around.
    My son has cystic fibrosis and I started one and made $850 but didnt really use IM, just my online friends. Good luck to you sir.
