    Hello BHW!

    Firstly I would like to thank each and every website contributor as if it wasn't for you people I wouldn't be able to share my first journey after reading through numerous threads and stories. To I would like to share my first journey I'm trying at the moment and has been running since the 28th February 2017 when I decided to put myself out there and give it a try.

    Below I'm going to explain what I've decided to do and the measures and decisions I have taken. I will say in advance though that I do struggle for a specific time frame daily in which to implement ideas to progress and advance but that's just down to personal circumstances and other commitments which take priority.

    Day 1

    • Made a decision about a niche
    • Obtain a suitable and sustainable web host which is cost effective
    • Obtain a domain name based around my niche
    • Integrate Wordpress into my website (User-Friendly based on prior usage)
    • Purchase Woozone (Amazon Affiliate)
    • Purchase Theme ( Based on usage of woo commercial)
    • Website design (Logo's - This was done with Photoshop)
    • Purchase Massplanner and create 5 social profiles for numerous sites
    • Scrape social media data based around niche
    • Google Adsense & Analytics (Around 11 advert banners and to monitor visitors)
    • Register with 6 countries on Amazon affiliates program and complete sign-up (Complying with their terms and conditions) to increase audience.
    • SEO via plugins
    • Small investment in Facebook adverts based on a research of keywords (Around £9)

    Upon conducting all the above which took me approximately about 6 hours to create the website based on a design i thought would be very professional and user-friendly, i then proceeded to custom the settings in Massplanner in terms of bespoke posts and the images uploaded and frequencies. This would be to ultimate gain social media traffic to my URL upon creating several product categories on my website and running 'insane mode' in Woozone to import products.

    The next part would be to make useful blogs posts, now since I'm tight for time I decided to make around 2 blogs per day but the difficult part was writing something interesting about my niche which I don't really know nothing about (poor market research ahead of starting this project ) A simple google search and reading a few topics already made it gave me some ideas on how to carry out this task without having to spend a long duration. Long story short, I just decided to do some reviews on the products I'm selling and reference back to the product which we all know how to do who've explored this field of making money.

    It has now been just over a week since i have started this and below is some information about traffic;

    Personally, i'm honestly not sure if these results are good or not. Based on checking the majority seems to be coming from my Instagram page, followed behind Twitter. Sadly the Facebook Page has only gained three likes so it might not be aimed directly at the correct audience and might need configuring in MassPlanner. The whole reason behind me doing this is because 90% is autopilot once setup correctly.

    Since then i have reviewed several threads about using Instagram and proxies to gather further traffic to an URL using CPA. I took a decision to incorporate this idea based around my already setup niche and add a category which is blank which will redirect to the CPA website. When taking this decision i purchased the following;

    Semi-Dedicated Proxies (100 unique IP authenticated)
    Hidemynumbers account and deposit for mobile verification
    Since then i had been using Bluestacks and BSTweaker to create accounts for Instagram whilst making outlook e-mail addresses as the verification is simple. After creating approximately 40 accounts quiet a substantial amount have already been disabled which might be surrounding the fact that the orientation of the proxies are EU based (France) whilst the mobile verification telephone number is from China. Since then I have limited a number of accounts I create to review my settings on Massplanner as I need to warm them up. The idea then is to redirect to my websites CPA redirected URL (In the website/bio) to hopefully gain some potential more review. Sadly since putting in so much time, i haven't gain any sales or commission via Amazon or the CPA but this is probably because it is extremely early days.


    The reason I'm posting this is to gain some ideas from others users in terms of boundaries they might of experienced and hopefully share ways to overcome them to motivate other users to start this tale and share into this community. Ultimately the idea is to make some additional revenue and would be sharing my story weekly in terms of progression and taking any suggestions into account to see if it has a positive impact.

    Hope you find this thread of interest and would thank you for taking this time to read the content which I hope is written clearly.

    Many thanks

    Just to keep you updated. I have enquired about purchasing 500 pay as you go sim cards with various sources.

    Seems most likely my accounts for instagram are being deactivated due to my proxy being french and my number being chinese. Therefore going to try and see if this flags.

    The idea is if this is successful i will go on to purchase a couple of thousand more SIM cards and sell them at a reason price as there seems to be a hole in the market place for this service.

    Will keep you all updated once i get a response from the vendor.

    Update. Managed to obtain a quotation about 50 sim cards. Negotiations are continuing based on their proposal.

    Question for users here. Would anyone be interested for me to source this cheaply for this forum as i might be able to order thousands for shipping on numerous service providers.

    Checking through the market, there isn't a lot being done with actual sim cards as everyone is resorting to online services which are causing accounts to be banned based on multiple users based on thr integrity of numbers.

    It is understandable as it is time consuming to insert sims into mobile devices which can be laborious.

    Update: I have been experimenting with the creations of new accounts for Instagram to avoid disabling and have managed to make 20 accounts running without being disabled when asking to verify mobile phone numbers. I see this as a great succession and is a key factor on the progression of making any sort of revenue.

    Over the duration of the next couple of days, i will make a decision if i will expand the accounts to around 100 which will obviously time consuming.

    Update:

    16 accounts were disabled after verification. I have created an additional 6 to bring my accounts up to 10 as its extremely late. I have changed the way i generate these to avoid this mishap and will review tomorrow. Also checked the proxies were working correctly.

    Update:

    Just purchased 100 Sim cards to verify accounts. Have enquired about obtain 50 gmail accounts so i can create blank accounts and verify on the Sims once obtained from scratch on proxies without the hassle of worrying continuously about verification or disabling of accounts.

    I will sell the other 50 sim cards towards another buyer.

    I will then focus myself on several niches and widen my chances of getting more revenue.
