    I have been dabbling with IM for about 6 months very unsuccessfully , currently made about $100 but spent close too 2k. All the kit but don't know sh!t Yup that's me haha

    This is going to be a journey with my wife. I was going to fill you in more on our background and why this needs to work, i even typed it out but then i realized how retarded it sounded. I'll give you the short version right quick which still makes me sound like a class one a-hole. We are now both unemployed and its pretty much all my fault, if we don't make around 18k before the new year then I pretty much have to leave the States and head back to Europe leaving my daughter with my wife. I lost her job for her by being a monumental tard, she was unhappy and i after a couple beers decided to tell her boss to do one. Mine i lost for a simliar reason. Winner i know. We just were not happy and something had to give.

    So i came up with a genius plan after reading here and watching youtube.

    Find low comp keyword
    build site 5-10k word unique content ( all written by me and the lady)
    tier1: 5 -10 web 2.0's hand built with 2-4k words with 10-15 unique article directory submissions (again all unique.)
    tier2: Ultimate demon - with mad spun content ( what a b!tch this is 3-4 days to do it well enough and keep it readable) i spread the campaign over 2/3 weeks.
    tier3- auto content (kontent machine) using UD
    tier 4- scrapebox

    Sounds good? I thought it did and really spent the time to get everything ready before even getting domains. It takes us about a week to prepare the content, get emails build FB, twitter and pintrest accounts, scrape new list for UD and generally get setup. Then generally 1 or 2 days to set up the whole the campaign. On the third week of the campaign i would start to monetize. I honestly thought i would be on easy street, sipping some fancy craft beer and smoking Cubans, writing a WSO and making Mr Cutts have a nervous breakdown at the thought of my awesomeness. Er NO im still stuck on the PBR and rationing my Marlboro lights.

    In truth i never got passed Tier 2. I just can't get UD to work properly. The success rate is so sh!t maybe 5% at best. Iv'e spent countless hours scraping sites and spinning content, for this not to work. It's so frustrating. Any tips?

    So the plan now.
    Last chance saloon. Start 1 more campaign.

    If it don't work the baseball bat is coming out.

    Nah im just gonna try something else. I'm not short of work ethic and have a little bit of coin to keep the family going till around xmas, just got to get it going.

    Tools i have
    Market Samurai (not sure i know how to use it)
    Ultimate Demon
    The best Spinner
    Scrapebox
    10 dedicated proxies

    Wish me luck!
    Any advice , constructive criticism and encouragement will be awesome.

    Tasks for tonight:
    Find a killer niche and figure out how to post a picture of it here

    Countdown to Deportation : 18k and 4 1/2 months

    Try to make a few hundred from Fiverr, you can use that to invest. :) Since you already have proxies and a working buddy, you should check out YouTube + CPA, or something similar. :)

    That's a really short amount of time. You really have to focus on the task at hand to meet your goal after 4.5 months.
    With the tools that you have I would say providing an SEO service would be a good option. Or write articles for people, if you're really good at making articles you can probably pull around $100 a day. But you'd still be shy of hitting your goal at the end of the year.
    It's going to be tough. I wish you the best OP!

    Well an epic fail as far as my journey goes so far.
    I woke up bright and early the next day to find my internet out. Just got it back today , and i'm about to start keyword research. The down time has given me plenty of time to think and loads of ideas.

    I think i may have over thought it a little. Your input would be great.

    So for one of my first attempts at this earlier in the year. I started a website focusing on Soccer, as its a passion of mine ( needless to say it has been a flop).
    So my keyword research went as follows: Plugged soccer into Market samurai and found 5-6 keywords that had lower competition, and then built pages on them. I also just wrote about soccer , without any research games, trades, general news stuff, mainly because i enjoy doing it and i had the thought it would look a little less "salesy".

    or should i have taken the 5-6 keywords (related by the fact they are about soccer but otherwise not) and picked the best one and built a site around that?
    with articles like
    best keyword
    cheapest keyword
    keyword review
    newest keyword

    Needless to say my head is about to exploded.
