    As of this posting I have 529 days until my 18th birthday. What this thread is meant to do is keep a log of everything that I am doing to make money until my 18th birthday. With simple math you can probably guess how old I am now. I have been getting into IM since early June of this summer but I have had an online business of some sort since Nov 2010. I started with World of Warcraft goods and services but have since stopped playing the game. I made a decent amount of money off of that but all the profit that I made I spent right back into the game and got nowhere. Started doing IM(internet marketing) this year and have made a little bit of money off of it but not much since I do not like to stick to one method and rinse and repeat. This thread is going to be a compilation of all the methods that I try until my 18th birthday to make $1,000,000 . This thread is 100% serious so trolls keep out.


    What I am doing right now to make money is Amazon. I start off finding a good keyword from a bit of looking in top sellers list on Amazon and type those into Google to see which of them have results less than 1,000,000. From there I check the top 10 results and see who I am competing with an dhow much effort I would have to put into the site to rank for the top spot. If it is a good keyword with good traffic, minimal competition, and a good CPC(its making someone money) then I go after it. I register a domain name with the search term in it from register.com $2.50 per domain with coupon from retailmenot. I then install WordPress and start adding content related to my keyword. When I complete this I start off page SEO with back links(links from other websites) that increase ranking in Google. When someone buys a product with my affiliate link from the articles an reviews I write I get a commission from Amazon. I also plan on adding Adsense and other ways of monetization not just Amazon. After I finish this I take the profit from the first website or my own $ and invest it into other websites. The goal is to make enough money to start outsourcing so that I don't have to spend all the time doing it.

    When I make enough money from Amazon I plan on starting an Email Marketing company where I start membership based sites in exchange for email addressees. The goal is to get people interested in lets say "bodybuilding" to give you their email so you can market products that are close to their interests through email. If they read the email and are interested in the product they buy it and I get an affiliate commission.

    Awesome! The best of luck to you man! I'm only 20 and I've been doing IM since I was 14. Panda and Penguin got the best of me and I've just been too sidetracked to get it all back together. I have 4 companies ATM and I do lots of other things on the side.

    I'm super excited to watch how this goes for you!

    I just jumped into amazon and trust me it would take you far way more than 5 months bro. You first must rank the first websites thing that takes at least 1 or 2 months for each.

    I don't want to be a party-pooper but I think you are misleading yourself. A sustainable business model capable of raking in 4-5-6 digit incomes of net profit in less than 2 years is very very rare and difficult to devise. Even with years of IM experience, its gonna require years of planning, tweaking, programming, etc.. To make millions, you've gotta do something ground-breaking.. I'm not saying you can't get $1m in 2 years, I'm just saying that I don't think its possible with the methods you are referring to.

    Maybe your niche is super profitable and untapped and I'm a fool for assuming that you can't do it. Prove me wrong, by all means, and I will definitely eat my words. But my advice is if you're really aiming for millions, you've got to go deeper than amazon aff store and email marketing.

    ps. finish your on-site optimization

    So you make a little bit of money online and because of this you are confident you can achieve one million dollars within 5 months?
    Im sorry but this has to be some kind of a joke.
    I am getting so tired of these journey threads with 99% of them becoming abandon and failures because the goals where too unrealistic such as this one.
    I do however welcome success threads once people have already gone and accomplished their goals instead of talking about them.

    Yeah he has a little less than a year and half not five months. While I agree that the goal is ambitious, your in HS so you have a lot of free time so I think making a ton of money is achievable for you!
