Good morning Blackhat World ::yawn:: I've been lurking on here for a while, not really posting much because I didn't feel I really had anything to share but, things are starting to change. I've basically only been dabbling here and there in IM when I was bored but things have changed - we have a baby on it's way - so it's time to pick this s**t up a notch. BTW, I'm kinda in the "grey" with the law so a normal job is not an option at this point so I spend almost all day on here reading/doing. Here's what I'm working on: 1) A specialty electronics store. It's only made about $400 the past 3 months but considering I've done ZERO promoting except for submitting it to G for indexing (if that counts) I feel it has potential. As far as my supply, I'm searching for the cheapest sellers of the goods I'm looking for on EB*y and drop-shipping. I'LL LIKELY DROP THIS STORE. For now however, I'm allotting 1 hour a week to promote the site. 2) I have 3 small blogs. The first is about a mythical creature. The second is about erm "certain male problems" which you can probably guess and the last is about a sole video game - cheats, videos, walk-throughs, etc. Each blog is currently pulling $0.00 to $0.20 a day via Ads*nse. Each blog is now getting 30 minutes a day allotted for 1-2 posts each + promotion. 3) I have a site for selling books. A book search engine of sorts .. I was making good commission via Ama**n but they didn't seem to like that and accused me of using stolen credit cards to buy items via my links and banned me for life. I did no such thing but they won't listen. It's now tied into CJ but making NOTHING via sales now. I guess people just really liked Ama**n. It does occasionally get an ad click however yielding on average $0.50-$2.50/Click. This is only once every couple weeks though. I'm allotting 1 hour a week to promote/build traffic. 4) A music related fanpage and site. I'm not saying anything more as competition is fierce. I plan on competing with three prime sites that have over 10M combined monthly USERS (not visitors, people that actually log in.) No, it's not CD sales ... These are currently in development and making exactly $0. The site won't be running for 1-2 months. 5) A forum. These aren't your typical forums ... It'll be something of a one of a kind information database tied into PHPBB where users can discuss the information contained in the database/add to it. I'll be documenting things in it that hardly anyone's touched on, on this scale so I won't go into complete specifics right now.I plan to monetize by renting out banner ad space. I expect >1 month before this is finished. Once it's up and running, I'll explain more. 6) I'm creating a site to compliment my in-person/mail marketing of ORM, Web Design, Custom Software, etc. I can code in more than a few different programming languages but programming is something that I enjoy and I really don't want to ruin it by associating it with annoying clients so I'm making exactly $0/month with it and I may just keep it that way if the residual income picks up. If not, I've it on the back-burner for "quick cash." 7) A Bible thumper site... Yep. You can read the bible online, something countless people have done. I've added my own twist however. No earnings yet. Site will be complete in 1-2 weeks. 8) Youtube/Adsense/Clickbank - I download videos. Mhmm ... Mostly videos related to my websites. When I re-upload, if they ARE related to my sites, I link to whichever it may be in the description. If the video is not related to one of my sites, I link to a CB product in the description. The CB thing, I've just started. 31 impressions, no sales. The videos themselves are generating an average of $0.25-$0.40 a day. This is with 140 videos, after 2 weeks. FYI, ANY video that gives the slightest "Third-Party" notice, I delete right away. 9) PPD - Fake keygens/cracks/etc - Custom made. I code them in C++. Over the past 2 days I've made 18. 4 are for games that are already out. 14 are for games/software that have not been released yet (less saturation/thinking ahead.) Of the already released ones, I've had 2 downloads the past 2 days yielding $2.87. I expect this to pick up. I do the typical routine - record a video, upload to YT, link in description, blah blah. I feel I'm forgetting something but that's enough for now. I've gotta get working here. I'd say on average (now) I'm making roughly $2/day. Hardly enough for a cup of coffee. This doesn't deter me though because it's really only been my laziness holding me back. I didn't get serious about this until a week ago hence why I'm starting this thread now. I plan on spending the next few months, 12 hours minimum a day (minus sunday) cranking out everything I can so we're ready by the time the baby comes. This is simply a "I cannot fail" situation and I work great under pressure. I'll update whenever there's any significant changes.
