    Hey BHW users!

    Yesterday I started my first try at earning a few bucks in the internet. Therefore I started with my bro, who has some experience with SEO, a new website. We will give the Amazon Affiliate programm a try.

    The website will be something like a shopping guard for my relatively little niche where users can read reviews about single products and some tips. This will be the "blog" part. On the other side I have a Shop where I will promote selected products. The buy button redirects to the shop. Thats it.

    Like I said, I started already yesterday. There I installed WordPress, the theme, plug-ins and other stuff. After that I looked at WooCommerce and tried some things to get a feeling for it. After that I started to write individual product description with selected keywords. I am doing that today too!

    Before I started I did a substantial keyword research. Well, I try it because I've never done that before. But I am pretty happy about the niche and keywords I found. :)

    Day 1 earnings: $0.00
    Day 2 earnings: $0.00

    Another day in the books and kept writing another few product descriptions á 150 words with keywords in it. Still planning the content for the blog and thinking about possible ways to post content at social medias. Especially which social media sites? Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or even Pinterest? I will work this later out when I am finished with the product descriptions!

    What I forget to tell yesterday: my goal! Hell, what would be a journey with a goal, huh? Well, I am a modest but ambitious person. Still I know this is my very first try and there are many things left that I have to learn. Since it's a micro niche I would be happy with $10 a day - that would be pretty awesome for me and I think it's a reachable goal!

    Day 3 earnings: $0.00

    Good luck m8
    Try to do a bit more than 150 words thats a bit thin really, unless its a churn and burn approach.

    Thank you for your tip but I think it's okay for a simple product description. The main content will be on the blog and there I will have more than 150 words, of course. The product descriptions are just a little nice feature in my opinion and not the real users catcher.

    Or am I seeing that wrong? :)

    My fourth day was a productive day imo. Once again I added selected products to my shop and wrote my own product descriptions to increase the unique content. Additionally I wrote my first blog post. 1000 words and a keyword density of about 3%. Day 4 earnings are of course $0.00 once again. So far I am happy with myself. :D

    Hey guys!

    I am sorry that I didn't post something the last few days but I wanted to invest my free time in my project. I'm sure that you understand that. However, I kept adding products to my shop and wrote another 1,000+ words article yesterday. I also opened a Facebook page, Twitter page and bought some likes/follows for the accounts; just for the look.

    And: Yesterday was THE day. I got my very first sale, wohoo!

    Day 10 earnings: ​$0.67

    keep going dude. make sure you're building backlinks. start off with basic links like comments, bookmarks, forum comments etc before you build out stronger links
