    Hello Dear BHW Fellows,

    I am John, and this is my journey to $3000 in 90 days.

    Short Introduction
    I am new here with this account but I used to be on BHW ~4 years ago, was actually making some money from re-selling services from bhw :) until one guy scammed me for about $500 and MY account here got banned, the reason being "threatening bhw member". All I was telling him is that if he does not deliver what I payed for, I will report him here. The guy was a Jr.VIP here and I was a simple member so.. the result was my account banned and no hustle for the guy. This in the moment when I started to build reputation with the members and was thinking I have a bright future in IM. Anyways, the guy got banned after some time when someone else reported him but since then I decided to not join bhw again anytime soon because I did not have time to start everything over again and had to find a 9-5 job. So.. some time has passed, and I'm back here :) The reason is that I lost my job a week ago, I have 2 kids and I need to do something. $1000/mo is not much but decent money where I live so I'll start with that for now. I have coding skills, know basic SEO and have some experience with social media which I think is enough for now to earn some coins and become an independent entrepreneur. So.. Let the Journey begin!

    Plans:
    1.
    I have a membership website all coded by myself. Topic is selling advanced betting tips. It will take me around 7-10 days to finish the website totally and 7-10 days to implement an affiliate area there in case I decide to promote it this way. I am not excluding to team-up with someone from bhw on this project. I truly hope this to bring a decent amount of money till the end of my journey. Once I hit ~$2500/mo from this website, i will sell it and invest in a bigger project I have in mind.

    Monetization: Membership
    Promotion: Affiliates or/and Joint Venture here, on bhw
    Side effect: build audience (email list) for my next bigger project that is gambling related too.

    2. I want to try adult galleries. I don't know why but I always wanted to have a adult website and now is probably the perfect time.
    Since I don't have much to invest for now, I will do all the work myself. Later on, I will outsource mostly everything in this project.
    This website is almost ready too, needs some design fixes and it's done. I coded a script that takes automatically full adult galleries from other 3 similar websites and embeds them on my website so I have a always updated website with 0 maintenance work :) The reason for that is that I don't want to buy an expensive hosting for now where I could store GBs of galleries and pay for a lot of bandwidth. So.. for now, leaking these pics will work. Later, I will not use this trick.
    Monetization:
    On page-adds (pay per view)
    Pop-overs/pop-unders
    when viewing a gallery, the user will have the option to download it free. I am working on the script that will automatically generate these achieves. They will be backed up by CPA offers.
    Promotion:
    Create Facebook Sexy pages - will avoid adult content and only post non-naked pics here with a link to my website.
    Tumblr / Reddit and other social media. Have to test and read around here what works better.

    3. If someone here needs any coding services, design or small tasks to do, I am always ready to help. Need to support my family on the road to achieving my goals. Will try to find something part-time in the "hire a freelancer" section here.

    So.. that is it for now. Will keep you guys updated every day.

    Cheers!

    p.s. it is late where I live so my journey starts tomorrow ;)

    Good mate. Keep it up. Beware from stupid guys. Hope you and your family will get a nice stand. Use social media method too for your affiliate promotion. That will be powerful.

    Good luck for your journey.
    Never give up.

    Reading this, I would say that you should speak to a moderator about your old account. You will most likely be able to get that reactivated because you did not scam anyone, did not any 'risky business', and it was a very long time ago.

    As for your journey, I wish you well, I can see you have goals and ambition. All you need now is to take action.

    Seems like a solid plan you got there. I never had any success with adult, but good luck to you. Also, for adult traffic reddit si great. I got a lot of visits, but never monetized with ads so that may be the reason why I failed. Just find a bunch of NSFW subreddits and generate shitload of traffic. :D

    Hello OutOfTown,
    thanks for the wishes. Regarding my old account, at that time at least 2 or 3 people talked to the mods explaining the situation. People that were dealing with me on a daily basis. unfortunately, nothing was done. Now I don't remember the username or the email I used back then :/ Other than that, I have plenty of time to build my reputation here again. Slow but steady :) Just like back then but this time I will not be so sure a member cannot be a scammer just because he is on bhw and has a membership here.

    Btw, your username is familiar to me but I see you joined less than a year ago. Wondering if we did business in the past or I just saw some of your posts/comments these days :)

    Thanks for the wishes again,
    See you around ;)

    Hi :)
    If honestly, I don't count on the adult website to bring much money in. What I learned (by reading, not by experience), is that adult traffic is not that hard to generate. It is hard to convert it..

    I can't explain myself why I want an adult website.. I just always wanted to have one :) Just want to try this out. Better to fail than to be sorry I did not try :) And it does not require more than domain/host + 2-3 hours daily for social media... so why not? :)

    Thanks for reddit tip. Note taken!

    Well that is good. I was just throwing some information your way to make sure you did not get banned because of it. But it is good you have that handled. We have not done any business together as far as I know. Not unless you were here last year.

    Hope you will suceed, but why on 90 days? these projects seems to be long term. Membership seems to be profitable to death sine you have the right number of memebers. I have some questions:

    1. are they charged monthly?
    2. How much do you charge?
    3. do you plan to add content every month for the membership area?

    Thanks and good luck

    Well, I definitely did not get banned because of scamming anyone. Otherwise I wouldn't even mention it :) But.. thanks for the info! I really do appreciate these kind of comments over the "nice thread! subscribed!" that are done just for the purpose of post count probably.

    Regarding us doing business, not possible :) probably read a thread opened by you or some useful post.
    Checked your signature website trying to find what was so familiar to me and did not get much info except the fact that your website has russian language included. Are you a russian language speaker? I am one too..

    Actually, no that is not my website. I do not speak russian, though I do know Polish.

    Hello Onizukafr,
    Thanks for the interest in the thread and for the wishes.

    Before responding to your questions, yes, the projects are long term. I don't expect to get rich over night and (personal idea) consider that without patience in IM is just not possible. You are right, membership websites are profitable to death IF the marketing is done right. This is why I want to team up with a experienced marketer here or integrate an affiliate area. Let them people with more experience advertise! and earn. and I will earn with them too.

    Long term reason 2: I like to code any of my projects myself. I can't say I am the best php coder around but what I do works (not buggy) and I never depend on updates, finding paid stuff free that takes more time to find than coding this myself and so on and so on...

    Answers:
    1. I was actually thinking about this. I might launch 2 different websites with the same tips. On first one I will charge weekly + bi-weekly + monthly + yearly. (prices on point 2). On second I will charge per bet. So you can order 1 bet / 5 bets and 25 bets.
    2. Just want to mention that I am still thinking about the prices and investigating so it may change!
    So.. for site 1:
    Weekly: $39
    bi-Weekly: $59
    Monthly: $99
    Yearly: $599

    For site 2:
    1 bet: $9
    5 bets: $29
    25 bets: $99

    3. Content has to be added every day. It will take 3-4 hours Daily to work on this websites which I will do with pleasure :) (both websites will be handled from One admin area). Working includes: Check the games for that day, offer the results for the selected bets and write articles for each bet you choose explaining why you think that specific team will win, why there will be over/under x goals and so on.

    Hope I answered everything :)
