    Hey guys,

    I've been lurking on this site for a long time and I enjoy reading the journeys on here. One thing I noticed though is that whenever people started journeys for email marketing they rarely hit their goal and most just stop updating their threads. Well I've decided to begin my own journey on here and I will update as much as I can until I hit my goal. So here's the setup:

    I outsourced a landing page design on fiverr for $40
    I've setup bing ads with a budget of $10 a day
    I don't have to worry about autoresponder fees for now until I hit 2k subscribers
    The affiliate program I'm promoting (will not name) charges around $52 a month and I receive half of that in residual income for each person I get to sign up.
    I also just purchased +200 solo ad clicks for $96 to help build my list.

    So altogether I spent around $198 and as of now I have 4 people signed up who are still using the trial membership for my affiliate program and around 5 subscribers in my list. When I receive my solo ad clicks I will update my journey.

    Success is inevitable!

    I am interested in reading your journey as I know very little about email marketing (aside from the glaringly obvious stuff)... very interested in learning!

    Good luck!

    Good luck on your journey.

    I paid $60 on fiverr for a landing page but the end result was bad. How detailed will your expected design be?

    Dont even bother buying solo ads from fiverr dude, those r garbage/bots. U gota find ones that are reliable/non-bot.

    The page has been very responsive as I requested. I like the design and I provided the content.

    You are using mailchimp, and their free package doesn't allow sending affiliate offers so that's not gonna work.
    Aweber has $1 for first month, you could try that.

    Ok so I finally got my solo ads clicks. I paid for +200 and received around 50 optins. I'm seeing that I may have problems with my autoresponder (Benchmark Email) because after doing test I see my messages mostly go to the spam folder. I checked my affiliate program which my squeeze page redirects to and I have like 25 signups which is awesome. With the program It's free to get started but I earn $22 monthly for each person that upgrades but I know people will upgrade because the program is one of the best. I'm still getting signups so I can't really complain, the affiliate program is one of the main reasons I'm building this list.

    Spent $198
    Earned $0
