    This is my first journey. I'm only making this public here for 2 reasons:


    1. This forum will act as an accountability partner. I'll feel obligated to leave updates, make constant progress and keep the momentum going.
    2. I have a lot of dirty, sneaky, but legal marketing tricks I'll be sharing which I know will help many of the members here.

    THE STAKES:

    My BHW account is on the line. If I don't make at least 10k a month for 3 months straight, and if I give up on my journey I'll PM moderators to ban my BHW account. If they won't do it I'll self-ban myself by leaving my account inactive forever.

    Note: making a 'pivot' in my plan, example switching my niche, building a new site, etc is not giving up. For me to have given up means: I post in this thread saying I give up or if I don't update this thread for over a week. No exceptions or excuses, doesn't matter if I'm sick, someone died, if I don't progress and update within a week it's game over. There's no time limit but ideally I want to be making 5-10k/month in 2-4 months.

    THE GOAL AND THE GAME PLAN:

    My short term goal is to make 10k per month through this one method, my long term goal is 50-100k per month. To get to 50k per month I'm probably going to have to develop a custom giveaway system and get into multiple big niches.

    To get there without having a lot of budget monies I'll need to get my traffic to grow in a viral way so it multiplies itself exponentially. I'll explain what viral tactics I'm using later.

    How I'll be generating traffic:


    • Classified ads (just to gain momentum and test my opt-in, conversion rates, and viral potential)
    • Posting quality comments on high traffic web properties (" same as above ")
    • Facebook ads
    • Media buys

    TOOLS:

    DV and Grid servers at MediaTemple
    CPVLab installed and ready
    Testing domain
    Custom autoresponder - http://s22.postimg.org/6d9pqi5e9/auto.jpg

    PROGRESS SO FAR:

    Thought up a domain name, still need to register it.

    Built out a nice squeeze page, lots of custom graphics involved I spent way too much time on this lol.

    Built the viral thank you page, here's some details:


    • Has Facebook share and Tweet button, eventually I'll be adding in an email to friends script and maybe incentivize it.
    • Has thumbnails of 40 products I'll be giving away over the weeks to come. Each thumb has its own amazon affiliate link.
    • At the bottom of the page there's a high gravity clickbank offer which is perfect for my niche.

    HIGH PRIORITY TO DO LIST:

    Manually add getresponse code into my squeeze page
    When user clicks "Submit" button, redirect them to the thanks page but also use javascript to launch a popunder with a survey to relevant CPA offer.
    Fix annoying height issue I'm having on my pages
    Add in TOS, Disclaimer, Privacy Policy
    Create thank you for joining email
    5 trust jacker targets (will explain more on this later and give custom script)

    FINAL NOTES FOR NOW:

    I'll be sharing as much details about my campaigns as possible without giving everything away. For this journey lets say I'm giving away dog toys to passionate dog lovers. I'm targeting a massive, evergreen niche that can be scaled to multi-million dollars in profits.

    I will eventually be giving away custom scripts that I'm using in this journey. Possibly even a custom autoresponder including the source code.. no promises on that though.

    Please contribute, advice, tactics, constructive criticism etc, I'd really appreciate it!

    Cheers!
    :cool:

    You are saying you don't wanna give up and same time you said you give up if you didn't earn 10K at-least.
    are you confuse ?

    Once I've reached 5-10k for 3 months consistently I can stop the journey if I want. If I stop before I reach that goal then the account gets banned :)

    You're really strict/harsh on yourself. That is good, actually. Good luck! ;)

    Nice goal and I love how your account is at risk, that's original.

    Not too big of an issue, but some of your text is not visible on the default BlackHatWorld color setting.

    Just a quick update (then I need to get back to work hehe)

    (done) find 5 trust jacker targets (similar giveaways or good articles in my niche)
    (done) Buy and setup new domains
    (done) change around the links in disclaimer, policy, terms pages
    (done) Create thank you for joining email
    (done) fix directory filename
    (done) clone site and set it up on usa domain

    To Do List:

    (95% done) Setup tracking with CPVLab

    Setup GEO Redirect (I want any traffic that hits my pages to be redirected based on country, if they aren't eligible for the giveaway I want to keep them from signing up).


    Create new GR forms for usa site


    Create new cpvlab campaign for USA


    Create 3-5 unique popups or ways to push sales through trustjacker


    Post a test ad to see how many responses it gets


    Test autoresponder to make sure it's still working perfectly

    Create the weekly item giveaway page template


    Add prize name and value to TOS


    I really underestimated the amount of work to do before I'm able to drive traffic. The more I get done the more things I add to my to do list lol.

    Realistically I'll have everything ready to go for Monday at the latest.

    I cloned my original giveaway site and set it up on a new domain for USA traffic. Had a few small issues with CPVLab which are all sorted now.

    @SPQR - thanks for the heads up on that!

    @michellef - thanks for the kind words, I have very high hopes for this project and will keep going until I succeed.
