    Hello

    I will start whew couple words abut me and why I do this.

    Abut me

    I?m 25 years old I?m from poland. English is my second language so excuse me some grammar mistakes. I am in Internet Marketing from 2 years mainly focusing on SEO. SEO also is my hobby so I do what I like. Previously I focus on local SEO in polish but I decade to switch to global because I could make 5 times more in global then in local SEO for same work.

    Why I do this Journey?

    I decide to sheer this because last year I make short list off thinks I want to do some of them was personal some of them was SEO related one of them was money target like this one. And after looking at this list last week I saw that all my main targets that was SEO related have bean completed. Personal goals were not as good but still I?m more then happy whew this list. So I decide make List for 2014 and sheer whew you IM related Part.

    I do this journey because salary in my country are very low I worked for 7 months as full time junior SEO specialist and I get abut 400$ a month so this is just? average salary hire is abut 1000$ but not for young PPL like me. And I have very expensive dream to become commercial pilot and only way I could get money for this in reasonable time is from IM it require abut 60000$ dollars. I want to get such money until end of 2015. And my target for this year is to get 35000.

    As plans abut making pilot license I want to make privet pilot license (which is required to get to commercial License) in my country it is abut 10000$ I hope I will start this in spring 2015. and after I get 60000 I intend to go to US (probably spring 2016) to make more expensive part of license for commercial pilot which shut take me abut a year.

    Back to IM I intend to focus on couple main points and if I find something new that can be profitable I will add this to that list.

    1) Drop caching high PR domains and selling

    Plan is to catch:
    -PR 3 domains paying for them max 25$ and sell them for abut 50$ this will get me 25-40$ profit on each and I can get 60-150 such domains a month
    -PR 4 domains paying for them max 50$ and sell them for abut 100$ this will get me 50-90$ profit on each and I can get 15-30 such domains a month
    -PR 2 I don?t now yet what abut IT I will try figure out that in this month I probably could get abut 300 of them at max cost of 15$ each.
    -PR 5+ I don?t now yet what abut it because it require much more invested money and I prefer to have more pr 3-4 domains to sell then little PR 5 but that?s mainly because i have limited budget.

    This is new idea so I would appreciate feed back from you if these prices are reasonable. I drop caching domains for my personal use from over a year so I?m not newbie in this I even make dedicated Zennoposter templates to get all data I need to search for domains. But I didn?t try to sell them before of coarse all domains are check for they stats and have backlinks in majestic seo to back up PR and have correct ?info? in Google. As domain names there are nothing special they are free from TM and are from .com .net and other global extensions.

    Possible profit 2250-8700$/month

    2) 200 website directory network

    I have 200 directories based at wordpress there are dedicated on polish market but there have category English. Abut 150 of them have PR >0. I?m runing this project from abut a year and profits are based on last year income.

    Possible profit 500-1500$ per month

    3) Micro niche websites.

    I already have 3 websites but profits are very different and previously I focus on a little harder keywords right now I get 1-3$ a day but 95% are from one website. This one is still in experiment faze so it is hard to predict and I slowly increase number of sites.

    Right now target is 1000$ per month

    4) SEO VPS whew sheered IP.

    This one is new idea I have opportunity to resell VPS hosting for SEO but the differs in them are that they have high spec and shared IP and all other SEO VPS i search for have dedicated IP that cost minimum 1,5$ per IP per month and you need to get 500-1000 IP to get that price. Below are spec and prices I probably could sell them for but please treat this only as references because I still need to negotiate whew datacenter main problem is using they server administrators under my brand.

    VPS 1 VPS 2 VPS 3 VPS 4
    IPs 50 100 150 200
    CPU 2 cores 4 cores 6 cores 8 cores
    RAM 4 GB 6 GB 8 GB 12 GB
    Space 20 GB 30 GB 50 GB 50 GB
    Price month 53$ 61$ 81$ 102$
    Price/IP 1.06 0.61 0.54 0.51
    All servers include one dedicated IP, cores are XEON 2,3 Ghz, have SSD disks in raid 10 and direct admin panel (it can?t be done in cpanel because of infrastructure that is require to sheer ip). There will be discounts up to 30% if you pay yearly.

    Don?t treat this as offer. This is still idea and I would appreciate feed back from you.

    Expected profits are very hard to say because I need to negotiate offer from datacenter and it is hard to say how much I can sell. Let say I can make 1000$ a month whew this


    Conclusion

    If you make some calculations you will see that that in theory I could get 4 times of my target but IM are constantly changing and we can?t predict anything in longer time that?s why I decided to split my source of income between couple sources.

    Good luck on your journey, one little recommendation, have a look into doing SEO in Polish. I know that you have already tried it but it seems like you are going the client based route. Try micro niche sites etc. I have tried ranking foreign sites and from my experience it is a lot easier. Might be able to make some money directly. I just stopped as I can only write fluently in English so the translation was quite a pain lol.

    "ranking foreign sites and from my experience it is a lot easier." - it's right, but traffic is small on this sites. Poland is small country.

    Good luck.

    You'd probably do better if you focused all your energy and focus on just 1 business task and executed that brilliantly.

    Hi OP,

    The main objective is the transition between SEO Internet Marketer to a Pilot which is absolutely 2 different specialization. May I know your progressions to transforming into a pilot?
    While gaining license is a mutually exclusive aspirations, may I know if you've an alternative goal should you fail in attaining this pilot vision.
    Note: I do not want to burst your bubble but factual accounts state that it is not easy to get a commercial license, lack of adequate education (aerospace engineering etc.) and lastly, a hefty price to acquire a license.

    Warmest Regards,
    To Your Success,
    Commoner

    Hi

    Not exactly I started working in IM because of this aspiration and it is there from 3 years. As education it is not require to have aerospace engineering or any other college or university degree, I have engineer degree in computer science. This two things are not very similar but bout of them are stuff I love and if I fail my dream I will stay in IM. As pilot license I just read a lot. I already picked one school in US a little harder is in Poland because there are only two near me and none of them have exactly what I need and I don't want to do this part fare from my home. As you seed there are more or less mutually exclusive so I won't start doing license before I don't build stable passive income. There are also some personal issues I need to resolve before I can start doing license but this isn't place to sheer this.

    I agree with iamNRE you need to focus on one task otherwise you risk spreading yourself too thin.
