    Hey guys, I've decided to cook up my own journey thread to help me stay on the track and achieve my goal of stable 500$ per day. I've joined the scene about 2 years ago and have been full time IM'er for a little over a year now. I don't make much because I'm having trouble staying focused and working nonstop, and to be honest I was getting a bit comfy with my earnings and didn't really have the kick in the back to work hard. But I know my goal and it's not living ''comfy'', but living like a fucking rockstar. 500$ per day will definitely be a good goal to start with, but who knows where I'll go from there.

    How will I achieve this?

    Well my current bread and butter is PPD with my over a year long JV with TheKingGeek. And this venture will definitely continue for a long time as we know the game pretty well and there is no reason to quit, but my other income source and the one with biggest potential IMO is going to be paid traffic and mobile app / pin submit offers. I just feel like this is good niche to work in. I've already had some success with paid traffic and PPI mobile offers and made I a few hundred $ a day some days, but that wasn't sustainable. I need campaigns with bigger audience that are long living. So that's what Imma try to find in this journey. From approx calculations, my PPD journey should start bringing in a few hundred $ per day for both of us in couple of months, so I might just hit the 1k a day, who knows.

    I also ordered and got my Mega authority site from Stfrank to get some passive Adsense moniez, so I will also do a few articles per month. This will probably bring in 100-200$ per month at best, but we all know that passive income is awesome. And I like the idea of having at least some money rolling in no matter what.​

    Play money
    I know PPC requires a lot of play money to actually get some success. I might not have as much as other dudes, but I also don't think my numbers are too small to start. Basically right now I have about 500-700$ to blow on PPC and I can chip in some 200-300$ per month in addition, but for now I've been turning these 500-700$ around couple of times - up with better campaigns, and down with some bad ones. So I guess it's gonna be just fine. I have 2 Facebook ads accounts at 750$ threshold and one fresh that I could easily get to 750$ too. I think I will stick to Facebook Ads for now and maybe some Admob too.

    Some thoughts

    I know achieving these figures with paid traffic is more than possible, all I need is couple profitable campaigns with large enough audience and I'm set. Guys are doing 5 figures per day so mid 3 figs are very possible IMO. My PPD income will stay stable so I have something to fall back to at any time without much worry. Right now we have ton of PPD landers and niches ready to be ranked so not much work is needed in this area for quite some time. My partner Kinggeek does the ranking so I have a lot of time to do my PPC stuff. As I already said, when most of pending niches are ranked we should def hit couple of hundred $ per day each.

    I will try to update this thread daily with at least some basic info of what I'm currently doing. First update will come this evening (by my timezone at least).

    Cheerz!

    I feel like I'll be working mostly with Facebook Ads, as this is so far the only ad network I've gotten pretty familiar with.
    So far I've worked with incentive mobile app PPI offers with my own lander etc, requiring to download app to unlock something, but I'll be doing non-incent too.

    They don't allow direct linking app install ads unless you are the owner of app in question. So I have 2 ways to do this - do regular Newsfeed ad and cloak the landing page until ad is approved, then just swap to direct link to iTunes / Google Play, or second approach - same newsfeed ad with my own landing page, but this will decrease CR as not everyone will click through, although this is safer approach.

    Sorry I didn't update the thread yesterday evening, started feeling really sick and went to sleep. Dunno what happened, my ear suddenly got infected and I got shitty cough.

    So yesterday I updated one of my template landers I use for almost all incentive app PPI offers and ran a few campaigns, not much of a difference so I've got a few more ideas that I'll be implementing today.

    Also yesterday I set up a non-inc PIN submit ad on Facebook for Netherlands. Let's see how it goes. I will spend some 15-20$ a day for couple of days to see how it does. No conversions so far.

    You already know that in PPC you need to test, test and test again different landings and ads, so you have to be ready to spend some budget to find out good niche/campaign. Good luck!
