    This is my one month anniversary on the Black Hat World forum. I though that, as a thank you for all the help I have received from the members of the forum and their inspirational and thought-provoking profit ideas, I will share how I have integrated the learning process into a set-up that allows multiple streams of income.

    I began by creating a blog through Blogspot, absolutely free. It was at http://ashlynnbrookeblog.blogspot.com. I went for the adult niche, which was difficult at first with a Blogspot subdomain. I was looking over my e-shoulder all the time, until I realized that I was able to put an adult content warning on my blog, which made me feel better. I started out getting sporadic unique visitors and hits, anywhere from 92 on my first day to 270 on my fifth. I have not done any more promoting except for Digging every post, and now I have an average of 150 visits per day. I made $13.55 through AdSense before I removed it, and have over 9,000 hits in the two weeks it has been up.

    I then started selling on Amazon, selling away my DVD collection and some GPS systems that I have not needed for a while. This was where I made the mos money this month, netting close to one thousand dollars. However, that took a turn for the worse when I didn't realize that ebooks could not be sold on the site, and several buyers filed A-to-Z claims guarantees against me. I now have $333.80 waiting an additional 79 days before it can be released into my bank account. Lesson learned: never sell ebooks on Amazon. It's too deceiving, violates the Terms of Service, and will get you permanently banned. I'm starting up another account next week.

    During my Amazon expedition, I had a wary feeling, therefore started yet another PayPal and eBay account, just in case something happened to my Amazon idea. Something happened to my Amazon idea, therefore I went to a different idea. I bought several signed baseballs from a dealer in my city. They were cheap, and probably fakes, but I didn't mind, since they came with "certificates of authentication". Five have sold so far in the week and a half that I have had the account. Combined profit total: $375.59. Still no feedback yet, but I guess that doesn't matter. Once I have had the account for a while and have a substantial amount of feedback, I plan on selling it to someone who can better inplement it (EPN, cookie stuffing, etc).

    I've signd up with several adult affiliate companies: Adult Friend Finder, IMLive, HookUp, and Adult Date Link. Adult Friend Finder has by far been the most profitable as far as advertising is concerned, since they have a method that is pay-per-click. I have only made $1.50 with this method so far, but I have ideas on how to streamline and monetize it to make my blog more profitable. I also implemented my IMLive idea into an e-whoring startup. I'm "Jessi", and I have a Facebook, IMLive cam account, Pornhub profile, 70 "pictures" of me online, and a MSN. I've only made $1.00 so far, but to be fair I only tried the free sign-up on two people, so a 50% success rate isn't horrible. I have 50 Facebook friends and 490 Pornhub friends and tons of messages waiting in my inbox.

    I used Boosey's method for Craigslist incomes through CPA with my two CPA companies that I am affiliated with: PrimaryAds and DarkBlue (no phone verification necessary for either). I was "getting rid of" a Macbook. Got 143 emails from interested parties. Told them that I had "given it away" and gave them a nicely disguised link to my one-page free Macbook submit. 35 clicks, zero conversions, zero dollars. However, from my PrimaryAds box on my blog, I have made $4.40.

    Early on in the month I tried out Amazon Mechanical Turk. As long as you choose many of the higher-paid options, you can fraud people out of quite a bit. I made $8.56 from one hours work, just copy and pasting the same word "scam" over and over again. Genius. The money sits in my Amazon Payments account, completely unaffected by my Amazon Seller ban. On the topic of Amazon, I have also signed up for the Amazon Affiliate program. I have a 125x125 box and two product placements on my page, and ave had 12 clicks, but zero purchases. So far.

    Yesterday I started an autoblog through blogger called "The Acai Berry Craze". I set up a sreparate Gmail account with automatic forwarding of emails to my Blogger blog email address. I set up a Google News alert for news stories about acai berry products and reviews. An email is sent to my Acai Berry Gmail address every story that comes out, and is immediately sent to my linked email. It is then automatically posted to the blog. I still have to make a layout and put in some ad boxes, and there are some kinks to work out, but after I can figure that all out, I'll make a thread or ebook about autoblogging on Blogger that ACTUALLY WORKS.

    ShareCash was my first venture, but I made the mistake of trying to cheat the system. I signed up for my own offer through a Verizon Wireless external USB modem that changed I addresses at every restart. I had made $232.19 at the first payout, but was caught. I fessed up and got to keep my account and 5% of my earnings. $10.90 was approved. I requested the check, and am still waiting for it to arrive in my mailbox after two weeks. But it's MY money.

    All in all I have made more money this month than I have made in the previous six. I'm very happy about my progress, and on May 1 I will write another thread explaining my progress again, hopefully with much better results than what I already have. Thank you Black Hat World for all of your help and guidance, and I am now going back to the moneymaking process.

    Total profits March 1 - April 1:

    • Amazon: $1,032.93
    • eBay:$375.59
    • AdSense: $13.55
    • AdultFriendFinder: $1.50
    • IMLive: $1.00
    • PrimaryAds: $4.40
    • ShareCash: $10.90
    • Turk: $8.56
    Total profit in 31 days: $1,448.43. Goal for April: $4,000.00.

    If you would like to know anything more about any of my methods in detail, or if you are stuck on something that I have talked about and would like some assistance, let me know by posting on here. Don't hide behind the PM function when you're a newbie. I've learned from experience that there is no way to learn except to jump right in. Observe too, though. And don't fill my inbox with poorly-worded "help me to make me blog sucesful" pleads. Thanks.

    If any of my information was helpful, the thanks button is in the corner there.

    Thank you very much for your kind replies, lilman and cashresolution. I'm hoping to expand profits on my blog and put together at least ten autoblogs. Also, CPA will play (hopefully) a big role in this months income. At least, bigger than it currently does.

    lol
    It's really refreshing to see someone be completely honest about what they're doing, instead of all the bullshit you hear.

    good to hear someone earning a good paycheck from the methods shared in BHW. inspirational indeed. maybe you should specialise in 3 areas or so? to concentrate your efforts.

    You have a point hydrangea. I thought seriously about doing just Amazon, eBay, and my blog. But the problem was that there is only so much money to be earned from the methods. Plus I'm a little OCD. I would have put equal love into all three. The problem woud come when either a) I got banned from PayPal again, b) I got banned form Amazon again, or c) my blog was deleted, hacked, or fucked up somehow in a way that I couldn't fix. I don't want to spread myself too thin, but at the same time I want to make sure that my income streams are what I said they were, and that is multiple.

    Great share of your experience and success, keep it up mate and nice to hear people actually really trying out the methods on the forum rather than asking for a spoonfeed.

    Btw 1 month here and over 400 posts really tells a lot about your commitment and seriousness in making big bucks in BH. Keep it up and go for your $4000 goal in April with no hesitation alright.

    Cheers for your success :tee:

    Thanks, Dax. I put a lot of time into that, and a lot of time on eBlgotemplates choosing the right template to use. The warning I'm sure deters quite a bit of traffic. But without it Blogger/Google will take notice and rightly delete my blog. It's never happened to me, and I definitely don't want to take the risk of it..

    I have to admit that at one point I was definitely a general noob (see my thread entitled $10,000 By June!)... (scratch that, dont see it). I was part of flamewars and everything lol. But I got over that and got serious. Thank you for your compliments and I will make sure not to disappoint the community.

    The amount you made isn't nearly as important as the fact that you took massive ACTION. Congratulations.

    Thanks Gun-Shy, for that and for the heads-up at SEO for Firefox. I had that for a few days then uninstalled it when I streamlined my computer. I saw your thread just this morning and remembered that I had failed to reinstall my second most important Firefox add-on (after VideoDownloader lol)

    I see you have an amazon button on an adult site. be careful with that. it might be in their terms not to shown on sites with porn. double check.

    Do it! The hard part that I have found as far as videos on a free blogger blog is concerned is that you can't just insert the video into the post. Inserting the video into the post is basically uploading it to Google Video. Any adult content will be almost immediately banned. It sucks, really. So now I'm looking for a video host. I actually put three videos up on the blog in the sidebar as ShareCash links.

    Good thought, tygoldberg. I just got done reading through the entire Amazon Associates Terms of Service and Agreement pages. I didn't see anything about not being able to put their links on sites with adult or pornographic content, so I'm assuming it's ok. But still you're right in your concern, I feel it too, therefore I sent them an email asking if it was ok. I'll post the reply once it comes.

    I dont see what selling your DVD collection or GPS on amazon has to do with Blackhat or IM. Also, that is not something you can keep doing every month. Your ebay profit too is not blackhat or IM, it is simple buy low/sell high.

    You made something like $40 in a month that I would consider IM money. That is a little more then $1/day which is pretty bad.

    Your #1 problem is this: in 1 month you attempted 8 different things.

    Pick 1 thing, stick to it, and really build it up until it is making good profit and then go into maintenance mode on it while you start a second project and build it up. Eventually you can afford to hire people to do the maintenance mode for you while you keep creating new money making ventures.

    Actually theres a lot of work put in here. You realized many things in a very short span and this also shows that there are no shortcuts to success, 'implementation' is all. These are the type of posts I hunger for as they remind me that I know enough info and I have to stop looking and the next thing and work my as* of.

    Thanks FreetheTV, I sure you'll reach great heights in whatever you step in.

    best,
