    I've been dabbling with Click Bank, AdSense an Amazon Affiliates for a few years and I have made a small amount of money, like a 500-600 bucks (not much over a few years but it's something). I was kind of inactive for maybe 1.5-2 years but now I'm back and determined to get to ?100/day!

    The reason I'm doing this now and am motivated, may sound a bit weird to most people. I've been very interested in minimalism and travel for many years, and right now I'd like to build a campervan conversion and travel around Europe and maybe the US for a few years. Due to this dream of mine, I can't have a regular job and the best solution would be to earn money online any way I am able to (within reason and legal limits), but with the goal of eventually generating as much passive income as I can because I may not be able to be online every day, unless they get rid of 3G roaming tariffs in Europe. Which means I am probably going to mainly use Whitehat techniques (slow growth is fine) but occasionally pepper in some Blackhat magic.

    I made some calculations and figured ?25-30/day is the absolute minimum I could travel on (since I will be staying at places for weeks or months at a time), but ?40-50/day is the minimum I'd want to travel on, ?70/day would make it more comfortable and with ?100/day I get some extra savings as well. As you can see I am fairly modest, I don't have any desires to become a millionaire, although if that happens I won't say no to it.

    However I have never lived in an RV/camper or been actively traveling for more than a month at a time, so I figure I should get my income rolling before I roll out, otherwise it's just too much to handle all at once. So here I am, wish me luck! :D

    Nothing stops this train!

    I sure will, and I encourage everyone else here to do the same. Been reading some other threads in this section, helps fuel the motivation!

    Yeah I plan to use those, I may try some others as well.

    Thanks! Put your mind to it and maybe you will! :)

    January 8th, 2014

    Today was a busy day, unfortunately not with IM but family stuff. However I did make one sale for $30 and got around €3 ($4) from AdSense on my YouTube videos.

    As I said in my original post, I have been dabbling with IM for a few years and I have a Facebook fan page with over 100k fans and many of them are active. I kind of got this Facebook page by accident, it grew by itself while I was not doing IM and not paying attention to it. Around 6 months ago I checked it for the first time in 2 years and it had grown from 10k to 70k, now it's slightly over 100k and growing at around 500-1500 per week.

    The shitty part about it is that it's a fan page of a early 2000s luxury car and a big part of the fans are actually from Eastern Europe, countries like Turkey, Bulgaria, Poland etc. Nothing against the people in these countries, but these aspects make it difficult to monetize the page. I'm not able to find many good car related products on Click Bank either.

    However, the sale I made today happened through the website related to this page. I've been making about 1 sale per month without doing much of anything, which more than pays for my hosting and domains so I'm at least not losing money. The only slight problem is that the guy whose product I advertise hasn't paid me in months. But we did agree that he would only pay in batches once the total is over $100, which happened at the end of December, but I haven't heard anything from him. So I sent him an email today, hopefully he will respond soon so I can get my money and reinvest it.

    If anyone has any ideas on how I could monetize that page for that audience, let me know. But please note that I want to keep the content relevant to the page and decent quality. That'll probably have more success anyway. And no, I am not selling it. If it turns out to be too hard to monetize I will just keep it for posterity, as it is one of my favorite cars anyway.

    Also my YouTube earnings from Google have not appeared in my Finalized Earnings in a few months now. I started YouTubing in November, some of them should have appeared there by now as I've made €88 and change from YouTube AdSense since November, most of it in December. I sent Google some feedback on the AdSense page, hopefully they will fix it but I'm not sure any human person actually works in their customer service, lol.

    Earned: €25
    Spent: €0

    So as I was posting my last post, the guy whose product I was selling contacted me and everything is now sorted.

    Also I got another sale today, plus ?6.15 in YouTube revenue for the past three days and I spent $3 on some Facebook likes for a new Facebook page I made, just to give it a small bump and I bought a domain name for $10.7.

    Earned: ?53.11
    Spent: ?10.03

    About the facebook page, you still have pretty good countries there like Germany, USA, France. Btw, how do you grow your facebook page when you create it?

    Hey! Well I got kind of lucky. I created it around 2008-2009 when Facebook was booming and I got a guy who was very popular in the car scene to post the page on his wall, which gave me a few thousand initial fans and then it just grew organically from that over the years.

    A little update since my last one, I have not made another sale on the car website/fb page, which sucks. That fan base is pretty hard to sell anything to, cheap bastards, he he.
    I'm gonna take a look at Clickbank for some other products I could promote, but the selection is pretty poor. I guess I need to learn how to sell crap, like the douchebags in "The Wolf of Wall Street".

    However my YouTube AdSense has been steadly growing and I have some new channels in the works where I get access to some popular websites related to the topics of those channels, so that could be interesting. My YT AdSense is now averaging at about €3.50 per day. That's not much but it's increasing by 20-30% every week, which is a promising trend.

    Since the 12th I earned about €37.99 from YouTube.

    Still, I'd prefer banking through Clickbank or other affiliate programs, hmmm ...

    Earned: €91.10
    Spent: €10.03

    Another quick update. I've been dabbling in cryptocurrencies lately and made quite a bit of content for them, actual good content and I've donated away most of the cryptocurrencies that I have mined.

    In the last few days I've received around $400 worth in tips for my content. I was also offered a job to design and maintain a website in exchange for cryptocurrencies. If this keeps up and becomes a stable source of income, I guess you could say I am soon reaching my goal of €25-30/day. But it's too early to say, however I will keep at it!
