    This is pretty funny to me that you can do this... I've seen it done so there is no reason I can't do it.;)

    Ok so I'm pretty new to internet marketing and I have no doubt in my mind that I will achieve my goals within the next year.

    I've learned so much and I still got a lot to learn.

    But here is the thing, I'm the kind of person that can't deal with a regular job or college ( I'm 21 )...

    And now I've ran out of money.

    I managed to make over $2000 in a period of 5-6 months playing video games and betting on myself. And about $500 writing articles before that in about 3 months?

    I got tired of all that and I saved up about half of that and invested it into learning about internet marketing. I fell in love with making money from my own house and internet marketing is where the big money is at online. I stopped playing and writing for other people for 2 months ... and just diving into this internet marketing stuff writing for myself etc...

    I'm not making huge money marketing yet, even though I've made some and I know that it works and I won't stop doing it until I become an expert at it.

    So now I need money again... I've written so much content for myself I can write 500 words worth of stuff decently in about 20 minutes. When I was writing for money before it took me like 2 hours to write 500 words so I wasn't making much money. Now I believe my writing has gotten so strong and fast I can make about $20-$30 per day doing it fairly quickly. (don't take this post as an example)

    So that's $30, I got a guy willing to pay me $10 per blog because I can write like him and do his SEO exactly like him ... might get one or two of those per day... maybe 1 every other day I'm not sure. But he knows some people that might hire me too for $10 per blog.

    So that's $40-$50 per day right there from that alone... in about 4 hours maybe less?

    Now the last piece of the puzzle is the fun part. On oct 2 a new game came out, it's a basketball game and spending 2 hours per day just studying the game and figuring out a money strategy for all these kids to lose their money to me hasn't been easy but I think I'm finally there. I got my offense figured out against every possible defense in the game I have the perfect team to run my plays, I have the perfect defense to stop 99% of the people I play.

    So on november 13th I'm coming back strong to the stuff that proved me that if you spend enough time on something you scan be successful doing anything. For lasts years game I was 3 months late and I was still able to make better money than working a minimum wage job.

    Being conservative this year I think I can make atleast $40-$50 per day on my bets on normal days and on good days over $100.

    This journey starts on november 13th and I just want to prove to everybody that you can get paid for doing anything so figure out what you're good at and figure out a way to get paid for it. Or if you're not good at anything spend time doing something that you like and get better at it every day.

    LOL some people are going to laugh about this thread but we'll see if I make it. I got a good chance I believe unless the website that I play at got smarter and I doubt it.

    I'll keep spending my 2-3 hours working on internet marketing and growing my business. My goal is $100 per day for 30 days straight, make 3k and stop again and live off that for a while and get back to internet mare marketing full time.

    It might take me a few weeks to get to even $50 per day and here is where I'll track my progress and stay motivated.

    :cool:

    It's November 13th

    Starting balance: $15
    Current balance: $19
    record 1-0

    Played a guy that has a 139-30 record and beat him by 15.

    Starting out small to see where I'm at compared to the community. Looking good so far.

    i don't know if i'm allowed to post links or what so mods remove this if i'm not

    gamersaloon.com
    virgingaming.com

    ---------

    Update for the day:

    Had a setback I was writing a 1,000 word article and I somehow clicked the back button and lost 900 words that were going to pay me $10.

    I got frustrated so I put off the articles for tomorrow when I download a plugin that saves my web forms.

    So here's the deal. The Video Game site that I can play isn't looking as good as it was before. There are people playing but there used to be so much more. It was so easy to spend 3 hours straight on the site and beat 5 people and make $30 before but today I only played 2 games in like 8 hours.

    Not doing that again. If I just focused on the articles those 8 hours i would have made over $50 easily.

    I decided to just put all my money into tournaments, there's a 1k tournament coming up I paid $3 and if I win I get an entry for that. Plus some other tournaments so I'm not wasting time in the sites shoutbox trying to get games when nobody is on and I have a set schedule for games.

    The torunaments are for like range from $5-$15 in prizes but there's that special 1k tourney and I'm not in it for the final prize. You can bet on each game and make like $40-50 from every tournament playing bums. Join enough of those and the money will start flowing but that will take a little more time.

    on the other hand

    The article writing website is looking good. There's more orders available than before,and f I focus on that for like 5 hours straight I can make some nice profit. We will see tomorow.

    Also experimenting with some stuff for my business tomorrow the potential for a profitable method is there we just need to test it out.

    Starting balance: $15
    balance in account now :$2.16 ( all spent on tourneys ) potential for $1,000 + profits
    record 1-1
    hours wasted 8

    balance on writing account: $0

    lost $10 because of my dumbass hitting back on the browser

    tomorrow will be better :)

    update

    hour spent working today: 1 hour and 25 minutes
    total earnings pending review: $11.58
    articles written: 3

    didn't actually work non stop and took breaks etc so $11.58 for about 1 hour of work is not bad for now.

    If I manage to get consistent 5 star ratings in all my articles I'll move up from premium to elite writer and that's where the money is at. 500 word articles go for $8-$10 I can do those in 30 minutes... think I have a good chance of making it.

    I need money to pump into the tournaments on the video game site. I'm already in 3 tourneys but I need money to bet on those matches so I'm selling something that I don't use ever right now let's see how much I can get for that. I just got this idea now writing this lol.

    Your strategies seem all short-term. Are you planning on more mid- and longterm things?
    I mean with some SEO and your mad article writing skills, just search your niche and go?!

    Betting on games... too good to be true for mid- or long-term it seemed after all, huh?
    Maybe in some bigger Starcraft leagues or whatever is popular these days...

    I saw the thread title and thought about an article of mine I posted a few weeks ago on two of my blogs... I made a sale that gives me $100 monthly commission while I was playing Doodle Jump. But that commission was not really the result of me playing video games (although I wanted to make my money with that as a teenager), but Internet Marketing.

    Keep us updated! :)

    This reminds me of other sites where you can play silly games against other people for money, join tournaments etc.

    what i find interesting is that eg; you bet $1. The other player also has to pay $1.
    Now, the site takes 25c from each player as a commision. So there is $1.50 left.
    The winner gets $1.50, the loser $0.

    But, and you have already realised this being the BHW'er you are, the site get 25c for every $1 spent on the site.

    So.. The long term method here is to build your own site :)

    my girlfriend used to play on a site like that.
    I gave her like $10 paypal and she has been playing with that for months on end.
    Sometimes being ahead (up to $50) and sometimes losing almost all of it and building it back up.
    I see the same with a friend who plays zynga poker on his ipad. Some days he is ahead and other days he is almost out of credits.

    In the end it is the same as betting with casino games. There is only one long term winner: the house (or the website in this case)

    This is not a long term strategy at all. I work on my long term strategy every day using everything that I've been learning.

    I'm not new to video game betting. I made around 2k-3k in about 6-7 months when I was doing it as my only source of income(with a little writing). My best day was aroud $200 doing that alone. But there were days where i lost money and there came a point where I got tired of it and took all the money I made and invested it.

    I've gotten my IM work down to 2-3 hours per day and I'm doing this to fill out my day, keep me entertained, and to keep my writing skills strong(I'm not that good but I'm fast and that's really all you need)

    --------------------------------

    Update - total profits for the day (from these two things alone) $22-$24 don't feel like adding up the cents lol. Should have been more but I forgot that there are some clients that post vague descriptions of their project and then reject your article when they don't like it. Got 2 of those today and lost around $10.

    Played some games, ended up going 3-1 and the one that I lost I didn't bet any money on.

    Wrote 3 articles and 2 got rejected for the reasons above.

    Goal for tomorrow $30.

    today: $22+
    day before:$11+

    This is so true, the big winner is the website.

    Owning a website like this in the future is not a bad idea, they got matches going on every minute and they charge fees. If I play a $25 game they take about $5 out for fees, If I lose I'm down $30 but If I win I only get about $22.

    --------
    update: So I kinda took the weekend off from making money and I bet on a couple of games, some of them weren't sure wins and I ended up being -14 for the weekend.

    I got all my articles approved it looks like I need to change my strategy to get 5 star ratings every time from now on to move up to elite writer to make the "big" money.

    The only way I can write quality articles fast and get good ratings is by going to the rewrite section and rewriting articles. That is where I'm getting the best ratings so I'm going to focus on that from now on.

    So If I add up my two balances I'm at $67. To meet my goal for the week I just need to make $33 in 2 days, I'm going to try and make that today and take tomorrow and dedicate it to my website. It's funny but now that I'm working less on my website I'm getting better results, but it needs some love so If I meet my goal for the week today, I'll take tomorrow for that. And get ready to make $200 next week.

    To make $200 I need to average $28 per day. This first week was really, really good. Even though I haven't made that much money I should be able to meet my goal and I tested out different stuff on both sites and know what works and what doesn't. I know which stuff will make me money and which stuff will be a waste of time. On the betting website I have a pretty good idea of who I should play to make sure money, who will be a tough match up and the people that are flat out better than me that will just take my money.

    I might not be the best writer or the best player, but I've made money doing this before, and I'm making money doing it again, I just want to see if I can take it to the next level.

    This thread really does help me keep track of my goals... We will see if I make it this week to $100 and next week to $200. :)

    Update: So week one results

    Total profit: $95
    $5 short of my goal... I'm just going to shoot for $200 from now until next tuesday.

    I'm going to attach a photo on here of my history on the betting site.

    I need somebody that wants to partner up with me. I play on gamersaloon but the money on the other site is so much better. Saloon is like 20 times smaller than virgin gaming but I can't create a virgin gaming account because of my location.

    I need somebody that can create an account and manage the deposits and withdrawals and I'll just play the games. As you can see I've won atleast 2/3 of my games if not 3/4. Whoever is interested pm me or add me on skype fl23pr. You're going to be making money too, doing nothing... I'll do everything.

    today and yesterday combined: about $55-60

    figured out a way to get on vg and I'm 7-0 in 2 days with $35 profit without even depositing 1 dollar.

    That site has free tournaments... you win two games and you win $3.. So I won my first 2 games and won $3, entered the cash lobbies for $3 and advanced all the way to $10 profit yesterday.In 2 games.

    Today I entered the $3 round again and I already made $25 from $3 in 3 games, My opponent disconnected and I have to wait 2 hours but next round is for $45-50 i believe. I am just risking $3 that I didn't even deposit and I can go all the way to round 7 or 8 where you win $300. Oh man.

    Forget article writing I already got a hustle figured out for this site $100 days are not far way my friends.

    Already figured out how to get the money out.

    This shit will get interesting soon. If anybody wants to talk to me about this hustle playing video games for money I'm telling you... you can make $100 a day easy in the site I'm in now without depositing 1 dollar if you're good at just one game.

    This money will be invested wisely on my Internet Marketing ventures and to rent my apartment if I can get the money out successfully.

    3K per month playing video games? Who needs college or a job fuck that shit. And then invest that money instead of spending it on stupid stuff? That's where you win right there. I'm a little exited and just rambling but we'll see how this goes.

    update: made $80 the last 3 days.

    Yesterday and the day before I took it easy and made about $15 each day.

    Today I made $50 and didn't lose one game.

    I could have made $100 today If I kept playing but I just stopped and relaxed. Joined 3 tourneys today that should make me over $50 in the next couple of days.

    I love making money like this man it's so easy.

    $50 days are normal now, money coming in from all places. I could live on $50 a day for the next year at least.

    not bad for being 21... $50 a day feels great with no college and no job at 21, it can only go up from here... save a little to invest later.

    money is just money it comes and goes I've now made over $400 in less than a month from $45 that i deposited and next month that number will be multiplied. 3 times now I've been at my last $5-15 bucks but everytime it happens i look again 5 hours later and I'm back at over $100 ready to withdraw again.

    When you don't care about losing money you make more money. That's what i've learned so far.
