Oh my, there are so many 15 year old threads/journals on here. It's quite fascinating seeing kids my age, with the same drive and motivation. It's very motivational! Anyways, I started this journal to document and also keep myself determined. I started a clickbank journal a month ago, and.. I gave up! That's the one thing I did wrong.. I should have stuck with it and kept it going. I didn't keep my words. But now with the fresh month of February, let's kick this off back at square one. I've picked up a bunch of ebooks from here, I've been reading nonstop for the past week. Thank god for my Kindle, I wouldn't have read as fast without it. February 3rd, 2012 Resources/Materials: VPS (Upkeep: $10/mo) One Failed MNS site. (I jumped in without doing the proper keyword research, and realized that there was too much competition.) One successful MNS site. (After my previous failure, I decided to look over my strategies and do the proper keyword research. Surprisingly, it only took a day to find great keywords and a EMD.) Current Budget: $50 I am monetizing my micro niche site by content locking. It has pretty valuable info that will help every visitor who comes along. Averaging about 30 uniques/day. Yesterday, I was talking to a person who wanted to invest into my business. He brought along a friend, who actually turned out to be the lead developer of EZlocal. (A business directory.) I might take up on their offer. (Well, the investment will speed things up dramatically, as well as give flexibility to expand.) The only thing that I'm concerned with is how should I bring about my plan? How would I show the estimated return? I was thinking of setting up 50 sites. Small investment to start and build our relationship on. Probably 10 authority sites, the rest MNS sites. I'll have to think a bit more on what my plan of action will be. I don't want to jump in without doing proper research. I might do keyword research first and bring it in as the plan. Overall, a pretty exciting day! I will make sure to keep this posted, for my own sake too. Goals: Reach $100/month (Unstable revenue.) Reach $10/day (Stable revenue.) Open an LLC.
