    So I've decided to stop reading and begin to take action.

    My plan is to create a Gaming Website that produces Reviews, Videos, Pictures and News. As well as this I will also incorporate Adsense, Amazon etc. along the way. I have been working on the Facebook side of things for over a month and my content is receiving shares and likes daily. Accompanied by my fake Facebook profile I have created quite a lot of friends that are small YouTubers, Streamers and just general gamers.

    My starting budget is starting out at £0.00, I may be able to find some money for hosting. I have tried and failed many times but now believe my time is NOW. I have learnt a few tricks and wish to learn whilst creating my new brand.

    The advantage of already creating my Facebook profile and growing to over 2,000 friends means that my Videos and Memes get quite a lot of traction quickly. I have spoken to a lot of the YouTubers and dedicated my spare time in helping them produce better quality videos and advising them on how to grow their YouTube channels. This means that quite a few of the people I speak to trust me already. They are willing to share my content with their friends and allow me to brand their content on my Social Media pages. These types of relationships to me will hopefully prove very valuable in the long run. I have promised them promotion through the website when I begin to create it.

    I have read reports that quote massive numbers for the worth of online gaming. Quotes of $100 billion worth for the industry in the next three years. I want a slice of the cake. With so many different ways to monetize and create relations I cannot see any reason why my ideas would fail as long as I stick to my plan and mix Manual work with Automated processes. I guess confidence is the key here, and a desire for success.

    Facebook.
    The current 18-24 year olds who are fans of video games and news are the Facebook audience I shall be targeting.
    I achieve this by posting in niche content in groups with the content that is submitted into the page, from Reddit or any other means I find.

    Twitter
    Twitter is still the king for achieving quick gaming success, the ease of retweets allows gamers to quickly share their interests.

    Snapchat
    The new Social Media craze is obviously Snapchat. If Facebook isn't careful and plans their market right Snapchat is going to become the kingpin of Social Media. The gaming fans that are on this platform can range from 10-24. The ease and popularity means that this is obviously a market that I do not want to miss out on.

    Instagram
    Obviously being Instagram famous is an achievement to many people, including the up and coming gamers of the world. Most of these kids will do anything to be big on Instagram. This means that Instagram is still a massive market capable of being monetized.

    Reddit
    Reddit is such a weird network of people, but a valuable one if you can get it right. Don't mess with these users because they know blatant advertising when they see it. I have been growing multiple Reddit accounts for a number of months awaiting the right project to let them loose.

    YouTube
    Obviously with the introduction of YouTube Gaming and the normal Videos this market is essential. Creating montages, working with streamers will prove lucrative.

    Twitch
    A website that I am not totally confident with, but one that I am willing to learn. Gamers, gamers and more gamers. Everywhere. Find the right streamers who are willing to work with you and money will be made.

    DailyMotion
    Same ideas as YouTube really, the second biggest video platform for a reason.

    Personal Website
    Needs to be professional, yet attractive for gamers. They have to feel comfortable viewing on all devices. Most gamers however, use their mobile to view social media in between gaming. So a top notch Mobile website is essential.

    I have been planning this for nearly a year, I have failed once due to family commitments selling the website just as it was growing. A regret, but mistakes were made and my desire to crack this market has only grown.

    My beginning tasks:
    • Domain and monthly web hosting, with a view to a better host in the future to handle the traffic of Reddit.
    • FB Like Jacking Ninja.
    • New logos, and social media graphics that compliment the website upon completion.
    • GSA Blast once the website and all social media is ready.
    • PBN Backlinks.
    • Grow Snapchat, Instagram and Twitter profiles.
    • Create montages for YouTube and Dailymotion.
    • Approach family and friends for some form of initial investment for some tools that are needed.
    • Research the UK new business Goverment schemes to see if it is viable to get some form of grant to begin my lifelong journey.

    I'm quite an ambitious person and I haven't really got to this point with a figure of how much I would like to make. I'm a family man who wants to enjoy the luxuries of life and being able to support them will be enough riches in my eyes. HOWEVER, there is no point creating a journey without throwing a figure out there.

    At the beginning of October I wish to be able to say this is a success and earning at least £100 per day. £36,500 per year.
    By the end of 2017 I would like this £100 to be a solid everyday earning.

    Hopefully some people will enjoy my journey. If anybody is interested in a joint venture, I may be up for this with the right person. I haven't studied the rules on JV's, so I'm not sure if I'm even allowed to place that in this thread. If not, fair enough I shall delete it.

    Start by doing what's necessary; then do what is possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.

    Inhale CONFIDENCE,
    Exhale DOUBT.:cool:


    Thanks for reading.

    I'm gonna say that this journey won't work out if you do it as you're planning now. Take it one step at a time; you won't be able to keep up with Twitch and montages and social and reddit and your website all at the same times

    ^What a load of crap. It doesn't take long to post stuff on social media... The only real work is making montages; everything else is just small quick tasks.

    Anyway... Best of luck OP, it sounds like you have a really decent beginning business plan.

    Do you even know what Twitch is?

    Livestreaming. AKA can't do anything else at the same time.

    I can buy the domain and provide hosting.
    I'd create the logos, and other graphic stuff.
    I can grow social media.

    You'd be left with the backlinking and montages.

    How does that sound?

    Like I said I have a niche following. I regularily post gaming content and get over 500 likes on most images. My Facebook Brand Page is scheduled for the next 5 weeks, Buffer is set for Google+, Twitter. All I really need to do is grow all of the pages.

    Instagram is building nicely on a daily basis. I have a giveaway that is active, throughout my whole Social Media, right now for my own personal copy of a brand new game.

    I'm using the Twitter method for followers provided by Sherbert Hoover via Google Chrome console.

    I'm confident in web design, my ability to grow Social Media and rewrite gaming news content on a daily basis. I have newsfeeds set up to receive said gaming news daily the minute it arrives. I am a member of the biggest gaming Facebook groups available with quite the following amassing at least 250 likes on all of the videos I post. My videos come from people who submit them to my email, and other Social Media profiles.

    I have created many relations with small up and coming YouTubers and Twitch streamers. I know that if I brand the Twitch page I can broadcast THEIR streams to my channel meaning that I will have a constant livestream available to my following. Once everything is set up, if I wish, I could then become a streamer myself.

    Please don't throw negative vibes on my Journey thread because you aren't capable of coming up with a solid method to earn $$$THEDOLLARS$$$.

    I have planned this for over 5 months, calculating every little detail about this journey and only creating an account on BHW when I felt ready to solidify my plans.

    I have already done the hard work, now I will enjoy myself doing the things I love which is IM, family and gaming. I already have YouTubers, Twitch Streamers and clans ready to jump on board with my journey.

    Don't take my low post count for stupidity. I'm really not as stupid as most of the n00bs you think you can abuse on here on a daily basis.

    Thanks
