    Okay so I'm new here, I recently signed up.

    I want to start this thread as a motivation for me to go and get $100 a day without spending too much up front cash.
    What I've done so far, read a few post and twisted them up to come up with something that I feel is unique.

    I'm working in the adult field. I donno if it's niche but hey, it's adult program.

    I've created a tumblr page and started adding content to it, cost: $000.00
    I purchased a domain name and whois guard, cost: $010.00

    currently balance:-$010.00

    started getting adult content for my field from various sources.

    I plan to use all this content to drive targeted traffic to my offers.
    I hope to be able to start converting and making some sales, at my current setup I should get paid on the 1st and the 15th if I cross my payment threshold.

    These numbers are my first day testing out my own affiliate links to make sure they work: 3c985e5994430e888529fff0f66d54ce.png

    Wish me luck any questions I'll answer to the best of my abilities.

    Peace,
    Red beans

    I just decided what type of adult traffic I would be working with then googled for an affiliate program that catered to that. I can't give you the affiliate because all they do is the current area i'm targeting.

    Choose any niche i'm sure there are people out there who love all types of sex.

    Hi ladies and gents, thanks for all the comments it really helps me keep going. I gotta say starting off with little to no money is TEEEIDDDDEEEEIOOOUSS :( but it's okay.

    I've been searching and found a tool that will help me distribute my content. I think I will purchase it so that puts me at -030.00 so far.

    It's okay because between the last post and this post my screenie.png
    so even though i'm going slow this is already driving traffic which is great!

    So i've been at this a few days and while I haven't been seeing a lot of results from my work, I have been seeing results. I tried whitehat IM methods in the past and totally failed, at least now I'm learning fast and blackhat is getting some results. Here are my numbers after a few days : feebb7f5820fab09bd7c8efcf4b55261.png

    Hopefully after a week or so when I start getting picked up by the bots I can really start to see some increase in my numbers. I'd like to see 150 - 200 uniques per day with 1 to 2 conversions, that's my goal for right now. $100 per day.

    Wish me luck ya'lls.

    Good luck on your journey OP. It may seem trying at first, but if you stick with it and keep improving I'm sure you'll begin to see better results.

    Another daily update : e97a018d9a50411907a032887554c785.png

    I wanted to thank you guys for all the good vibes, this is a bit hard but I gotta keep going, can't stop now. I'm getting targeted traffic just not converting, I need better numbers.

    My traffic building is already on autopilot I just need to let the traffic keep building, while that's building I am also testing out some other things.

    What else am I working on?
    PPD + youtube + seo + (some time "x") = $$$

    Let's hope x != (days)Integer.MAX;

    For the coders that might make sense, it means hopefully it doesn't take too long, I'd like to make some cash.

    I am also working with ******* to promote some links, I made some cash, wanna know how much ? d6ddcc2e0d2265462c91e63b8c654e49.png

    It's not much but it's my first money made from IM.

    #!bin/bash
    end daily update

    this is another daily update.

    What i've been doing so far: I scraped some webcam clips from tube sites, created a xvideos profile watermarked the cam videos uploaded them on the tube site with my watermark leading to a purchased domain.

    I also recently started doing some tumblr picture work with some keywords, comments and sometimes I will put a link in my pictures so some of my pictures takes users to my targeted adult landing page.

    Both of these methods target a specific niche in the adult industry, if you click on my links you already like what you see. These links direct you to my insane dollars link.

    Here are the leads and conversions from the uploaded video: 843c760113bded13f711cebe39b6b547.png

    I am also doing some work on tumblr, just queuing up images, i have about 500 image post with about 45 followers and these are the leads conversions from tumblr: 9399af32dbdf5ae5c735f4bbce03c62b.png

    The tumblr first takes the users through my ******* link to pick up what I can there but that's useless, only 5 clicks so no good numbers.
    I think if I can figure out a way to get videos blasted out to a wider range of tube sites I can get some good income. I was looking at AVS but I am really not sure but I need to make up my mind like fast.

    While I simmer on that, I also started researching some seo stuff. This is pretty interesting and learning how to do pyramid links can come in handy in all types of situations. I will work this end slowly and learn in.

    I am working on a test product, I went to clickbank and chose a niche, i picked a fairly high payout program, $200 Per. Now I created a simple page, got a good article and make a short 30 second youtube channel video pointing to the blog. I am trying to rank the blog & youtube through seo, this I don't know how long it will take or even if i am doing it the right way but i'm doing it.

    So far my youtube video has two unique views that I have no idea where they came from. When I do backlink searches on my blog it doesn't come up with any but I have a list of about 100 that I posted it to, maybe they aren't indexed yet.

    Oh yea about the blog, once you get there you click free download, takes you to a survey from cleanfiles. After you complete the survey you get a great ebook that's niche specific. In the ebook there's a soft sell to click on the url, it takes you again to ******* then to my clickbank $200 dollar product.

    Any advice, PM's anything. It's hard out there whew boy!

    [EDIT]
    wanna thank zenoGlitch for his huge post on the mindset of being a blackhat marketeer. I can't post the link because blackhatworld thinks im a spammer or something.

    not much action today, well quite a lot of action. The seo thing seems to be coming along but I need some time for that. I am going to ditch the porn thing, at least for now.

    more updates to follow soon.
