    Hey everyone,

    another post to inspire everyone to keep moving forward and never give up!

    Since starting on this forum and starting my very small beginnings I now have a small Media Company in the UK - we do everything from graphic design, web design, online marketing, offline marketing and now we offer highly competitive printing too!

    This all started from me trying to make, brand and market online a product back in 2009, since then self tuition has got me to this stage. (I am mid 20's now).

    This shows anything is possible as long as you focus and work hard, I am a musician by trade and although creativity was never a hard skill set to transfer I have worked my bollocks off to make this work and it's proof that if you put your mind to it you can achieve without money just a determination. (I had $100 to start with!lol)

    ANYWAY

    I have now started to move into creating residual income in order to pay for new staff costs and to save for a deposit to buy the business premises I am renting (it has a flat above so that will pay the mortgage)

    They way I have done this is firstly setting up 5 adsense sites per month, they are on average all earning between $5-$20 per day and the idea was to keep some for residual and then sell off 1 or 2 per month as part of the bulk savings for the deposit.

    This week I sold the first two for $4,500! So amazed I can't tell you :)

    Anyway I know adsense isn't the best way so started to experiment with affiliate sales now as well, will let you all know how it goes.

    So Im blabering on now but the point is, look through the threads read and then experiment, experiment, oh and experiment again, asking too many questions in this world gets you nowhere!

    It always feels great to see that money coming in after working on something very hard.

    That is great for you buddy and I wish you good luck.

    Thanks YoungPlayer

    It really is, I think too many give up, we all go through days where you just think why can i never get this to work! Those days slowly decrease and good days start to take over! :)

    Far from my long term goals but everything is as good as it seems as long as your willing to believe and work hard.

    Great success! I am doing something similar, to try and build a brand in my local area and aim for recurring income.

    Also just to let you know, here in the UK anyway, there are different rules regarding working premises and living areas which changes taxes etc. Just want to let you know, would hate to see you lose your house and business due to a crazy tax bill in a few years.

    Good luck and keep working!

    Hey Execute,

    Good to hear :) So you running a media company on top of online marketing earnings?

    Yeah I actually live in a different location to my office but the office currently has the office space downstairs (shop front) and a flat above, the landlords are getting older and I think it could be a steal for the business, plus if the business grows and can relocate to the city I would have increased credit with the bank and obviously managed to get on the property ladder at a very reduced rate :)

    I started when I had nothing in my pocket except a very old PC (Pentium 3) and a very slow internet connection. What really matters is how much work are you ready to put in. Congrats on achieving your goals.

    Great to hear you achieved mate :)

    Same here had a mini net book free with my mobile, I bought a second hand monitor a few weeks later so I didn't look unprofessional to clients when they came in! Seems a long time ago now :)

    Hi,

    That is great to know you have thought everything through, just wanted to bring it up just in case.

    And yes I have been building a local media company that specialises in web design, seo and social media. There is nothing better than referrals in a local business environment so that is what I am working hard for now.

    Hopefully everything will become easier as time progresses.

    When you said you are working on a social media company, are you focusing on that and these niche sites are a bonus on the side or is that the main money earning strategy?

    Cheers bart,

    Yeah I am trying to plan a strategy of rinsing and repeating as much as possible, have got 2 VA's who have been with me for a while, so tutoring them on to getting the sites setup on auto soon.

    Excited to see what the affiliate sites do.

    Appreciate the heads up :)

    Yeah thats very true, referrals have lead to so many bigger projects, when i first started a really small client led to a quite large online client which was amazing, working hard and having reasonable pricing definitely works!

    I think it will, one thing I have found is becoming a busy fool, dangerous as though your income is increasing you loose the time to focus on the business moving forward, this is why I wanted to create an outside risidual income to live off so that all the media's money in the short term is reinvested into staff and further marketing etc. Being too busy means self employment is all you will achieve, those who can get past the barrier of 1st employee etc are the ones who succeed in my opinion.

    In regards to earning my media company is the future, I have plans to move it or create an additional office shop front into the local city, we have a USP over other businesses and I think it could be quite exciting.

    The residual income I am trying to create is income to use for my own expenses and to get the property initially, I want to see how big an income is possible, I spoke to a few in people in Europe who have 10k euro - 30k euro coming in monthly, so having that in your battle plan is only going to help everything you do.

    So you been in the online marketing game for long?

    Obstacles are there to cripple the weak. Every obstacle climbed allows you to stand high on top of it with a fresh new perspective of "what is really possible". Keep climbing, and keep succeeding. Congrats.

    These success stories inspire others as well, especially who are tired and about to quit. My online marketing agency is also new and at times it becomes difficult to keep up, but I have learnt a few things we saw here as well:

    - Referrals are extremely important to make your business big, especially true for local businesses, so focus on customer service
    - It takes time but hard work pays off (usually takes a year or more traditionally, blackhatters may not agree :) )
    - Running business is not for faint hearted
    - Form mutually beneficial partnerships
    - And as OP said experiment (and learn), experiment and experiment a little more
