I'm actually already 32 days into this journey. I am a writer/poet and have a cache of poetry that i've been working on over the last 7 years. I only recently came across BHW (couple months ago) and studied a lot of tactics and methods here and had the idea to monitize what was originally something I did recreationally and therauically already. I figured instagram was the best medium to begin reaching an audience, and 30 days ago I joined Instgram and began posting. I had considered buying 10k followers or something to start but I dont want to get banned so i've just been adding people with similar hashtags. In the last 30 days I've garnered 1.1k followers organically and average about 65-100 likes and 3-5 comments per post. People love my work and are interested and engaged. From here my plan is to slow my posting rate on instagram, i've began a gofundme in an attempt to raise $800, for advertising and a website/blog combo. Whether that succeeds or fails, i'm posting an e-book and a kickstart to try and publish some physical copies as well. These poems have a heavy visual aspect so if everything listed before succeeds i'd like to try and sell some artistic t-shirts, fridge magnets, wall-art, bumper-stickers, the works. I'd like to be, in the end, making money via eBooks, physical books, website traffic, merchandise. HOPEFULLY at least 900/week. (Dont know how unrealistic that is.) My starting funds are a wealth of original content, and whatever money I can scrape by and save (money is tight with rent & expenses) and whatever I can crowdsource. Any and all advice is welcome!
