Hi, My name is.... not important. My plan is to make a niche site, that would generate me some income at all. I figured, if I can make a site that gets me 1$ a month that's great! That means I just have to make 10, 100 , 1000... websites and make more , right ? A little back story. *** please skip this part if you're tired of these bull***t , eye tearing stories *** I come from a small poor country ( obviously). I didn't have it easy, had to leave my home in search for a better life. long story short, I moved to another country, life has gone a lot better from that point on. Peaces finally started falling into their places. Life finally got better. I've been interested in IM for about 5-6 years now. Things changed, updates came and went. I tried making small sites for PPD and PPI. Things didn't work out as I had a shty mind-set and couldn't stick to it. Then I tried making websites for CB products. Also didn't work out, no determination , same mind-set. Then , and this one's funny. I decided to make a authority website targeting health niche. I know, silly of me to think I could over rank healthline and webmd who basically dominate the living **** out of it. So yea , good thing I came to my senses and dropped it. So far we figured out that I can't finish things that I start. But time went , I got a little bit wiser and mature. And then I thought to myself, if after 5-6 years I still hasn't left my mind for a minute, then it's time to find my long lost balls and do it. And I did. I had a facebook page that I've created for fun. Got it up to 3,6 k , mostly with addmefast. I left it sit there for about 4 years as I was busy doing nothing. As majority of you know, addmefast likes are useless, at least in my eyes their dead clicks. Most of those accounts are banned, dead or abandoned. So it count's for nothing. **** End of bs story, welcome back *** What I have done so far: So about 2-3 months ago , I decided I'll give it another try, try and bring it to an actual life. I made add, using facebook's promotion. Plan was to spend 60$ , 2 $ a day, to get some real likes and get the ball rolling. Unfortunately after about a week or so, add was taken off, I've violated facebook's policy. I knew that will happen sooner than later. It doesn't really matter. I got around 2-3k likes out of it , and only spent 23$. After promotion ended, my daily fb likes had a huge drop as you can Imagine. I kept on posting , I still had like 10-20 likes a day, and to me that was something. It picked up eventually, now I'm getting 100-700 likes a day, which is great. the whole point of this fb page in my head, is to make some sales by putting an aff link in there once in a while and mostly to support the niche site that I'm working on. I also made a group that is growing in numbers as well. I'll talk numbers in a minute. Got a domain name, got hosting. Installed wordpress, and started writing. I could buy articles, but the thing is, I don't want to go through all the husstle trying to find the right writer. I know there's a lot of freeloaders out there, I got a 1000 word article off fiver once. Dude basically copied text from some other website, span it with automated text spinner and tapped himself on a shoulder, job well done. Anyway, I though , why pay for something when I can do it my self. I'm just starting out so I don't want to be throwing my hard earned money to something I can do. Also I have finally found a niche that I'm really interested in. I have a different mind-set now, I'm at peace of giving it my all now. I'm no longer thinking of far far future and how hard it will be ( that's planning for failure, and that's even dumber than regular planning). So far I have spent some time trying to optimize my website. I think I did it. I have written 3 articles for it: article 1 : 3600 words, targeting 1 keyword article 2: 1500 words, targeting 1 keyword article 3: 800 words, targeting 1 keyword Got my fb fan base up to 13k+ , fb group 100+ I have also made pinterest account I got 1 follower I'll be using various affiliate programs, one of them will be amazon. I don't think my niche has a very hard competition. only thing I plan to spend my money on is , offsite seo , I could do it myself , but I'm not that experienced and it just seems very time consuming. My goal is: Getting my fb fan base to at least 500k , fb group as large as I can get it. Complete my website Move on to another niche. Eventually make enough money so I can quit my day job So far I have spent/made 18$ or so on domain name + 100$ something for hosting 23$ on fb promotion total of 141$ Made:0 so far Sorry for a long overdue blabbering, I'll me my future updates short and on the point. I have 3 days off from my day job, so my plan is to write 2-4 articles , make a proper static home page for my site, and if I have enough time , schedule posts for pinterest . I have my fb posts scheduled for another one and a half month so I can leave it be for now and focus on other things. I'll update when I have something to show for. Thanks to those who took time out of their lives to read this, I hope some of you will follow this journey with me and maybe It will encourage you to follow-through with your own plans. Thank You.
