    Goal: Earn $1000 per month
    Medium: Pinterest

    Stats as of Nov. 3, 2013:

    Pinterest followers: 2,443 on 1 account
    Number of accounts: 1
    Monetizing method: Dropshipping real items
    Assets: Ecommerce website

    October stats:
    UVs: 694
    page views: 1,547


    My plan is to create 5-10 more accounts and build it to 5,000-10,000 followers each. I have already creaeted a squeeze page designed and a giveaway ebook. I have an ecommerce website but planning to direct pinterest traffic to a squeeze page and direct list traffic to the pages on ecommerce website once I have enough list subsrcibers. When I get my next paycheck on Nov. 10, Im planning to buy proxies and get an autoresponder service (Getresponse). I am really kind of low on cash now, I only have less than $40 to live on until I get my next paycheck. I work in a call center and I get a salary of about $300-$350 a month, its a 7am-4pm philippine time job, but its really more of 6am-5pm job as it takes 1 hour before the shift to prepare and 40min-1 hour to get home.. Its because its my first job but they pay higher for those with 1+ year experience. Fortunately, I am a pampered princess as my doctor gf pays for our rent, buys me groceries, we eat together during dinner sometimes so this saves me money. Pls. dont judge, I didnt ask for this, its just she has way more money than me and she likes doing it. No negative comments on this. Plus, we have a very big age gap, Im just 22 years old starting my career and she is well, a successful doctor, hence the income difference. Hopefully, when I master internet marketing, I will be able to give back to her. From experience, I could say you could get 50-100 followers everyday per account. Now I read an ebook, that it is very important to set your expectations properly when starting in IM. 1-6 months learning. 6-12 months practicing and 12-48 months mastering. I will say Im just on the learning-practicing stage, maybe more on the learning side so it is important that I relax, not be too hard on myself. I noticed that my biggest enemy (and probably most newbies) On February next year, I will get an online teaching job so that I will have more time/energy for IM. That will give me at least 3 hours per day. I dont want to expect anything until I reach 1 year dedicated to IM (at least 3 hours a day or more). I just want to go slow, learning until I have more time and energy to dedicate to it (when I start my online teaching job). I will also be attending seminars on positivity and wealth etc. (real live events, not online webinars) to help me remain positive. I have many issues about discouraging thoughts, failures etc. but Im trying to work on it using PSTEC. its free, fast and effective. just google it, percussive suggestion therapy something by Tim Phizackerley. You probably wont be seeing earnings update on this thread much as I plan on building my skill set primarily. Im not looking for a quick buck, I want to really learn/master IM and learn it scientifically and from there, I'll just scale it up. The biggest challenge is really to keep going and not get discouraged. To not compare myself with others, and not feel bad that others are earning $xxxx while Im not yet and just focus on my journey, developing my skill sets and gain more experience. I know that a stable, sustainable income from IM comes only when I have paid the price for it and that is lots of time and effort. I'll try to update this thread 2-3 times a week. P.S. I started pinterest last october so I gained about 2000 followers in 1 month. I havent been doing it consistently like every single day, but I try to make it to a point to move forward. The important thing is to make this sustainable (as much as my time, energy etc. permits) and not steamroll into this and then quit in a month or something.

    P.S. my old ecommerce website from blogger had 1 sale from Pinterest a long time ago. Then that customer bought again. and before that, when design is different, I had 2 customers. 1 of them bought a lot regularly, like maybe up to 10 or something. I lost that customer because the dropshipper put in his trade name, I kinda forgot to remind him to use my trade name and the cust google him. So she directly goes to him now. The other just bought once. The reason why that 1st blogger website is gone is because google just decided that my blog is spammy (but its actually not, its original articles) and deleted my blog. the 2nd blogger website, i decided to convert to wordpress because it has limited functionality unlike a wordpress site. the thing is that blogger website has a pretty good design template that i cant find on wordpress, but oh well. thats why i made my ecommerce wordpress site from scratch. thats why i know i can actually sell something. the method on the 1st blogger site is just posting articles and some SEO service. the 2nd blogger is a site i built and someone from pinterest saw it and bought from it (a long time ago when I had 500 followers. I stopped doing it for a long time and started doing it again this October) . this site im currently working on has no sales yet, I think it has something to do with the design/content, but I will just focus on mastering generating traffic for now and not worry about converstions. Cause I will get stuck on redoing my site if I do that. I'll take it one step at a time and when I have enough traffic, I'll focus on the conversions. Sorry for the kind of confusion when constructing my sentences.

    The topic should be changed to "me and my life" classic response by atticanibal

    no offence op but consider using the biggest key in your keyboard. I was also dizzy and skimmed through. Anyway good luck and post your IM journey later rather your life journey
