    Hi guys!

    A few months ago I finished my journey $10k/month in 200 days [Youtube, Pinterest, Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook]. Unfortunately I reached only 30% of my goal. Now I want to start new journey and my goal is to earn $100,000 in 2017 year. This is not so easy goal for me but I believe that the goal should be big enough to motivate.

    What's happened in my business?

    2 moths ago I sold one of my dropshipping online stores for $22,630, the second one was closed.

    I still continue to grow my blogs and I have a stable income $1000-$1500 per month from AdSense and affiliate.

    The strategy

    How I plan to reach my goal?

    I want to grow 3 sites and sell them for $75,000 (approximately $25K per each) at the end of the year. Also I should earn approximately $3K/month within 10 months.

    What kinds of sites I plan to grow?

    1. Big affiliate catalog with clothing. I will work with the affiliate networks like a ShareASale, LinkShare, CJ, rewardStyle and others.

    2. Fashion blog with social features (such as voting, suggestions where to buy etc.).

    3. Simple social network website for fashion lovers.

    4. Several Blogspot blogs in fashion, recipes, decor niches.

    Where the traffic should comes from?

    The main sources of traffic will be organic search and Pinterest. I will also looking for other sources of traffic and learning how to get traffic from Twitter and Instagram.

    What are the monetization methods?

    I plan to earn money from AdSense and affiliate programs like ShareASale, LinkShare, CJ, rewardStyle, ShopStyle and other.

    I would glad to any suggestions and questions in this thread. Let's go!

    Are you creating the website yourself? Or are you outsourcing the development work? If so, what is the price you are paying to develop those fashion sites?

    Good luck with your journey. Why do you plan to use both Adsense and other affiliate products on same site ?

    So glad to meet you again my friend. You guided me a lot in your previous journey but I got busy building my family home and couldn't earn anything. Sad.

    Your new journey seems interesting. I have 2 questions:

    1. Can you share some more info on your first website? On what basis you select product with shareasale,etc?
    2. Are all your pinterest boards starting from zero followers? Is yes, Can you share guide that we too can use to get pinterest traffic

    Why not? When I added affiliate to my fashion blog I was doubled my earning. I earn even more from affiliate than from Adsense now.

    Sorry bro, not interesting right now.

    1. I will share more info little bit later. This is big catalog of clothing and I planing to add 1M+ of products. I selecting only branded clothes with good price on shareasale etc. I'm using datafeed (csv or xml) files to import a lot of products automatically. I hope I can get traffic from Google having such a large number of products (even considering the that it is not unique content).
    2. I was growing my Pinterest accounts (I have 10 right now) from scratch. Some of them have ~7-15K followers, other - 1-3K. At first I used mass following with Massplanner, but now they are growing organic, when some of your pin became popular on Pinterest - your receive a lot of followers and traffic. There are no secret. Just take some popular on Pinterest images with tens or hundreds of thousands repins, add those images to your website and pin them. You need very big amount of images - it is better to have thousands. Only one pin from 100-500 pins became popular and you never know witch one will get viral effect so you need to be patience and pin a lot. But do not be spammy, I pin 10-20 pins per day (not in one time). I also repin my pins from my other Pinterest accounts. But all your Pinterest account must look like a real accounts, you need to pin from different sites, not only from your. Because it is very easy to be blocked on Pinterest. And you should use proxy for each account.
