    Hey all,

    Just been thinking over the last few days that its been more than 2 years since I've been doing internet marketing. I found out about internet marketing when I attended a Robert Kiyosaki seminar (Can he sue me if I post his name?) and there was this IM "guru" who came on the stage and pitched his service, which was training.

    Before I go into my story, the whole point of this post is for me to track my progress to $10,000 per month. Right now am making $0. Am going to be consistently posting to this thread about what I've been doing and what new progress I have made. I believe by doing this I will then become more efficient with my time and hopefully focus more on my work instead of dabbling. At the same time I want to give back to the community with my ideas and hopefully this thread will help others when am making money so they can go read exactly what I did to become successful.

    I truly believe the saying the more you give the more you get back.

    I will be constantly updating this blog telling you about my progress.

    So going back to this IM guru, I brought his training for £2000 which is around $3000. I went to the 2 day seminar, I didn’t know it at the time but all he taught was very basic stuff such as writing articles and posting them online. Looking back at the seminar and knowing what I know now there was nothing special about the seminar at all.

    Anyways from what he taught I made around $80, but that took me 6 to 8 months.

    I then moved on the hole of auto blogging, I Senuked the hell out of it, made me $100 over a period of 10-12 months.

    After trying so many different black hat methods, spending around 30-40 hours per week, following lots of guides and tampering here and there, dipping my fingers, I am now making a grand sum of $0.

    However I can say that I know much more about IM then I did 2 years ago. From my experience, I understand now that to really make a business online you need to have a solid product and a solid plan. When you’re following all of these different guides and going after the newest fad, you become disorientated and start focusing on other projects.

    So I want to do something which is tried and trusted.

    I think the real "secret" to making money online is to have a quality product as your vehicle to making money, but also hard work and focus is also required.

    So I've taken my own advice, I've now created my own blog and I will be adding articles over 500 words to that blog about anything I want, but mostly about making money online. So far in the last week I've posted 12 of my own written articles, all are over 500 words. My aim is to at least write 1 article a day for the next 60 days.

    Since I've been posting, my blog main page has been indexed. I've created the blog to have 2 banners on there about my product. The banners are on top of my page and down the right hand side. Once a visitor clicks on the page, they are then taken to a squeeze page which encourages them to insert their email if they want to a see a life changing video. Once they have placed in their email, they are then taken to a video.

    The video is to motivate people to buy the product and has testimonials from people and proof you can make money with it.

    My money making strategy is to attract targeted people to the blog, create attractive banners to motivate people to click on them and once I have their email, I would then send an email to them about my product which am promoting.

    My strategy to bring people to the blog by writing keyword optimized articles once a day.

    Check this out here if you want to know how to optimize articles: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...engine-optimization-optimization-newbies.html

    However I understand that not always is it true that blog can be ranked high in the search just by posting optimized articles, if I want results sooner then I need to do other stuff.

    Am thinking about doing facebook PPC and solo ads which I will update you on soon.

    My initial target is to make a sale by the end of this month. That would give me $25!

    From there I want to be making at least 2 sales a week that is $50 a week!

    After around 6 weeks, so from mid October I want to increase that sum to 7 sales a week!

    Basically once I know how to make money, I already have a strategy to upscale it all, where I KNOW by Christmas this year I will be making $10,000 per month!

    Stay tuned folks.

    Today I was on a classified ads website. I've decided to post an ad in the student/graduate jobs section. I know at the moment there are a lot of grads out there who are leaving college/university and are in that point in their life who are under pressure to look for a job. But we all know the economy isn't doing very well. Considering I am in the online money making niche, this is an opportunity to help those who need to earn money.

    I've just posted the ad, its currently getting reviewed and I'll let you know the results.

    Also just has a quick look on fiverr regarding solo ads, brought one of those which have good reviews. Am currently tracking the URL, so I'll wait and see the results from that too.

    I am putting facebook ppc to the back burner for now, but its for a good reason, the last time I went in I lost $100, so this time am educating myself and then I'll try it out...a bit later. However I've heard wonders about it.

    Tomorrow I will be off to the beach! Looking forward to it!

    Will update in two days.

    Before I go off to the beach I have written a quick 500 word article about internet marketing, have also optimized it and pinged it.

    I never knew it would be so easy to write articles so quick! I've done it all in 30 minuets.

    AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! YAHAHAHA AA!!! I MADE MY FIRST SALE YESTERDAY!!!

    I've achieved my first target, now my next target is to make 2 sales per week! Thats means I need to scale up what I've done to make more sales.

    Looks like all of your luck helped me out.

    And the sweet thing about it all was I made the sale whilst I was at the beach enjoying myself, boy I would love to have more of that!

    Okay for the last few says I haven't made much progress as I have been busy doing other things which HAD to be done. I was on facebook just now and saw a facebook capture page which I haven't seen before. Its quite amazing in the sense that FB allows sales capture pages. Another great thing about it is that you can embed a youtube video and capture visitors emails.

    I will be learning more about this! looks interesting.

    At the same time I've been researching solo ads, I posted a solo ad on fiverr, had 89 and probably only one email address submit, which is quite poor. Am thinking the email hits are fake. But anyways I've decided am going to do a proper solo ad this weekend, So I'll keep you posted on my progress.

    Check out this great thread for those who want to know more about solo ads!

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...-money-email-lists-my-40k-month-strategy.html

    P.S am getting worried.......I dont want to burn my money, spent $200 in one week o_O just on IM. Luckily for me I have a good exchange rate with the dollar!

    P.P.S When I say above it HAD to be done, I've been networking with fellow internet marketers attending meetup groups after work, there's a theory that if you connect with people who are more successful than you, their success wears off on you!

    Aiming and goals are very important. Beeing focused, keep in mind WHAT you want and WHY you want it.But my honest Advice: Try to make lower goals first (50 a day, 100 a day etc), than scale up.
