    Hello everyone!
    It's time to start my own journey thread here on BHW.

    Some short background info about me - I'm 25 years old, I work as a freelancer online and I want to achieve passive income. I want to experience financial freedom and to travel the world :)

    One of the methods that I want to fully try is building a niche site from scratch and earning money with Amazon Associates.

    My aim with this journey is to achieve at least $1000 per month with Amazon Associates and to sell this website for $XX,XXX.


    Things I did until now:
    • Niche research
    • Keyword research
    • Registered domain and bought hosting for 1 year
    • Installed plugins and purchased a theme
    • I created the basic pages of my niche site - About Us, Contact, Privacy Policy
    What's next? I'm ready for the next step of my journey - content writing.
    For the next couple of days I'm going to do lots of research and I'm going to write some articles.

    I don't know yet how I'm going to promote my niche site, but I will definitely use some info from this forum. I won't use PBN, that's what I know for sure.

    How much I'm going to update - I can't promise you that I will update daily or weekly. As long as something is happening with my niche site, I will keep you informed.

    That's it for now! In the future post I'm going to share some details about my niche.

    Hope it will be a successful journey!
    Thank you!

    Off to a good start. You came to the right place to learn about IM. Hope you find what you're looking for.

    If I can give you one piece of advice, while $1000 a month is a great long-term goal you should also have smaller short term goals. It will take some time for you to make any money but you'll still need to put in the work. If you focus too much on making $1000 you might get frustrated as you struggle through the lean early months.

    Good luck!

    Good luck OP!

    Just an advice from my side - I have been doing amazon affiliate since more than a year now, I would say that PBN's are a must. You don't have to build them yourself. You can buy link from PBN of well known members like -> @Leith and @Finn

    My site didn't reach #1 till I used Leith's Genesis PBN links, I was around #8-#10 and after PBN's I shot up to #1 and making decent profit for that keyword now. So, just stay away from spammy services, build web2.0, do tier linking to them and buy pbn posts.

    Good luck, I think you should have smaller goals like - reach 100$ [It took me about 5-6months to reach 100$ a month]

    Thank you!

    Thank you for your advice, I understand. I actually thought about achieving $1000 per month like in one year from now, till then I will have other small goals as well.

    Thank you!

    Interesting. I will still need to think about it, right now I think it's too early, since I'm still in the process of creating content. I will see later if I will try them.

    If you're writing the content yourself and it's actually high quality, consider promoting the posts on Facebook groups as well - you'd be surprised how much traffic they can bring. As long as it isn't spammy.

    It seems that my category is at 4%, but the good part is that the products from my niche are pretty expensive.
