    So to start off I'm from Ireland, 17 years old and have been following BHF for about 2 years now but have never interacted much.
    I have dedicated time to this after following a lot of people over the past months and I'd like to see what I can make out of it, hopefully this thread will help me keep on-top of goals and give me good clear goals to keep me on track.

    To begin I'm aiming for a steady 10 euro a day.
    DAY ONE
    For this I'm planning a Tee-spring campaign on Facebook. I am using the free tool "faceids" , Teespring , Facebook and some Photoshop skills!

    First I created a picture in Photoshop by cropping then using threshold and bold colours to give it a pop art feel, good typography also helps for a punchy image.

    I know some think Tee spring is a lost cause but I have been following Filmosophist's journey (Great inspiration by the way) and he gave me the idea for a very popular unused niche in my country.

    So I then used the face ID tool to extract the all the active users from relevant Facebook pages relating to that niche and created a new audience from it.

    Once my audience was created I began to run a 15 euro per day targeted ad campaign. I really have no experience in this so I'm going by judgement and other users , I wont be to upset if things don't work, that's how I learn!

    And that's day one, this was all completed in about 5 hours and it wasn't a solid 5 hours at all so any ROI with this would be brilliant.

    That was quite a brief explanation of everything but it was written after it was done , hopefully tomorrow I can show some more in depth progress and I will report back on how many, if any, sales I received from tee-spring!

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I have over 12 hours free tomorrow and I'm thinking what I'd like to work on. I do have quite a bit of money to invest if they're is any solid bots that could give me some sort of income I'd love to hear about them, but of course I'll be doing my own research as well. At the moment it looks like I'll be attempting an Amazon affiliate website.

    It's quite annoying how I miss out on alot of CPA networks and monetizing opportunity's because I don't live in the USA but I understand that the audience is far bigger over there.

    If anyone has any tips they'd like to share I'd be more then happy to hear them.

    Hopefully this thread keeps my head straight and I hope someone can learn something from it too, these forums have an amazing amount of knowledge in them!

    Report back tomorrow, thanks for reading :cool:

    Keep coming back to the thread and you'll see a consistent effort starting to go into your work. Unless you're a pathological liar.

    Good luck with they journey mate!

    ​Day 2

    --------------------------------------------------

    I was quite happy with my tee-spring progress, I had about 70 likes, a few shares and a few comments, a good start for sure over only one night. Then I checked to see that I have no sales, it is early to be expecting sales already but I think I have a reason why this campaign isn't going to work. My niche I was targeting was 90% Irish which is where I live, but Tee-spring aren't the friendliest to international customers, we have a 14 business day wait before delivery and this painfully slow delivery is costing 14$! For a t-shirt this really ruins the game, my basic tee is now going to cost my customers 34$ which nobody will be willing to spend. I may look at another site similar to Tee-spring but for the moment that's put yesterdays work to a hault, but I have learnt from it. I have reduced advertising to 2 euro per day just to see will anything happen, I expect to cancel the campaign tomorrow and have a look at something the Americans would enjoy more.

    Today's work wasn't the most productive after hitting the brakes on yesterday's campaign. I had decided to give Pintrest + Amazon affiliate a try after reading about some of Healzer's work, he seems to know what he's doing and his premium plan includes a lot of guides and tutorials, but mind you it comes at a premium price
    :rolleyes: I have sent him a message about it but he hasn't been online since, alot of the day was spent researching that topic and picking where I want to target, with Pintrest, women generally dominate the audience so finding a topic that I know about isn't easy pickings but I have a few I'd like to test out. I made a Pintrest account and began re-pinning some images, following people, creating boards and commenting. The manual work isn't my favourite, I was always a fan of automation and I personally would rather spend longer to get automation running then to have done manually in the first place, just interested by automation really so I think I'm going to wait untill healzer replies and I order the Pinbot before I move ahead fully.

    After spending over half an hour writing this post in detail this morning only to see it erased , and then when I realised my Tee-spring mistake I decided to take a break for while today as I was becoming frustrated, so it doesn't look like much work was completed today but alot of research and thinking was done as to where I'm going next. Hopefully I can get the Pintrest bot up and running tommorow and we can start seeing some minor progress.

    Fingers Crossed! ;) And thanks for the support guys!

    Thanks everyone for the support!
    FBGuru : That tool is brilliant, installed it on chrome yesterday and it's saved me twice since :cool:
    mIsac : Yes and I'll do my best to make sure this thread doesn't go that way :rolleyes: I think it's a good time to start too ;) Hopefully I can be experienced at a young age and get a good head-start!
    DAY 3
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------




    Today hasn't been the best in terms of productivity unfortunately. I firstly disabled my Facebook advert and pulled down the Tee-spring campaign due to the problems I outlined yesterday. This type of project still seems like a viable option to me and I'll always be looking out for a bright idea to bring this back up in the near future. I then did a bit of manual work on my Pintrest account and brought my follower count up to 55, not the worst for the second day, I'm hoping that growth will be exponential.
    My main focus today was Pintrest and I decided to take the plunge and order Healzer's Pinbot , a worth while investment I hope. It's been running for the last few hours and I'm still trying to fine tune it until it produces quality content every-time, still a lot of manual work pulling down un-relevant content. Once I'm added to his private forum I hope to learn alot more about using this tool efficiently.

    My plan at the moment is to try and get my Pintrest account up to 750 followers while I work on my word press store for Amazon affiliate, a goal of mine is to always be using my time wisely. Everything requires some waiting, and while I have to wait for things to grow I like to be getting a start on something else, the use of automation makes this possible!

    Tomorrow I want to:
    -Fine tune my Pinbot and then add 2 more accounts
    -Make a start on my WordPress store by picking themes,plug-ins and the name of the domain I'll be using
    -Apply for Amazon Affiliate on this site
    -Scope other blogs and websites to drag traffic from as explained in meathead1234's tutorial on so called "SEO Jacking"

    Hopefully my time is used better tomorrow as I haven't been working as much as I planned in the last two days due to slow downs and waiting for responses

    Thanks for anyone that's following/supporting me!

    Thank you Kazimierz!
    DAY 4
    -----------------------------------------------------
    Today was productive but more could have been done.
    I was added to the Pinbot premium page and got quite a bit of info from Healzer's guides, he also emailed me offering personal support whenever it's needed which is very valuable. Happy with my purchase so far. I've learned to understand Pinbot alot more and today I reached 116 followers at this moment, about double yesterdays follower count
    ;) I'm hoping the follower count will reach 200 by tomorrow , my following count is about 600 so it's quite a good rate at the moment. I'm targeting two large category's through a good niche, quality pin's and reviewing all posts by board member's is leaving me with attractive, quality post's rewarding me with good results so far. The other 2 Pintrest accounts weren't added as I planned but I think I'd rather keep a strong watch on this account first so that I know exactly what to do on the launch of my next accounts.


    I began my WordPress blog and surprisingly found a beautiful theme for only 20?
    ;) It's called Zuki and it's a very simplistic WordPress theme with good plug-ins. I began writing draft post's for the site to plan the visuals and personality of the new site. I also picked my domain and went for a EMD (took a while to find an available one) , hopefully this will help me. I haven't purchased this just yet, I'll wait till my blog is released.
    One question I have about this : Amazon want to see my site before they review my application, but I require my affiliate login to properly set up my posts... Any way around this? Should I just write my posts without links and apply with that?


    So it's 3:30 am now, I think its time for some sleep
    :cool: I'm not yet dedicating full day's to this yet as I tend to burn out quickly if I jump on too fast to projects , instead I am doing about 3-4 hours after I get up and I leave the house for a while to freshen my mind then come back and work the night untill I lose energy / creativity.

    I have a far clearer vision of where I want the project to go now and how I will get where I want to be.

    Tomorrow's goals :

    - Add a new board to my Pintrest account
    - Keep Pinbot on and reach 200 followers + Comment on some posts
    - Write 3 posts for the WordPress account
    - Apply to Amazon Affiliate
    - Maybe make my second Pintrest account
    - Learn some SEO tricks (quite lacking in this topic at the moment)

    I also have a friends birthday tomorrow night, so if I miss a post you can be sure I'm out embarrassing myself over some Ciders :rolleyes:
    Thanks again for anyone reading still!
