Intro Hello everyone! I joined this forum a long time ago, but never really did anything on here. About a week ago, I decided it was time to start pursuing money online so I got on here again. I have been reading various social media methods and learning from other members similar journeys. I am creating this journey to accomplish three things. 1) Help others- Maybe others can learn from this 2) Organize myself 3) Keep myself focused and stop my self from quiting. My plan is fairly simple. I am going to start by building social media accounts. In paticular I am going to start with Instagram and (maybe) Twitter. I will be starting with only one account per social network. The accounts will be named the same thing, and I will likely post the same things. My goal is to monetize these accounts once they have been built and are of reasonable size. Monetizing is one thing that I have not yet decided on. I am debating on wether I should sell shoutouts or try to do affiliate marketing. I think $5-10/day in about a month is my goal but I will be patient. 6/30/2015 (First Day) Today I will be focusing on instagram. So far I have Created the account Uploaded a profile picture Found 20 commonly used hastags used in my niche Scraped 700 pictures from another account in my niche and choose my tool/method of choice....see below Method I plan on using a service called crowdfire. I would prefer not to invest too much until I have grown this a little and have some proof of concept. Once I have grown this, I will likely invest in followliker or something else of that nature. I also chose crowdfire because it allow for easy post scheduling, can be used with both twitter and instagram, has both a mobile and desktop version, allows for easy following and unfollowing. My game plan is as follows. I will post 10 times a day for the first handful of days. As time goes on, I will obviously lower this. Because of crowdfires limitations, I will have to follow on a rotation. The rotation I am thinking of is... day 1: mass unfollow then follow 100 (no more than 20/hour) day 2: follow 60 (no more than 20/hour) (early in the day) This is my first attempt at anything of this nature so feedback and suggestions are GREATLY appreciated I would like input on following methods and monetization in paticular but everthing helps!!!!
