    Hi,

    my name is Oliver (from Estonia) and I know a lot about SEO and internet marketing. I have been in this industry for more than 3 years as you see my join date (mostly reading). But there is one catch: I have never been doing something specially impressive. That being said, I want to make this journey kind of “internet marketing success story” and testing limits of my own knowledge. I have earned few thousand bucks here and there, but nothing impressive and long term.

    Also I have twin brother who is basically copy of myself. I have previous success with Adsense (micro niche websites), PPD and CPA. Also I have knowledge in Wordpress, CSS and HTML. My brother have earned his money from Fiverr mostly and graphic design (he´s pretty good at it).

    Me and my twin brother at Mayrhofen. I post this picture just to engage more with this journey and you fellow black hatters. Freestyle skiing is one of my passions. I really just want to ski at least three months in the Alps.

    I think I am little obsessed for new information, because, you know it´s easy to consume countless hours of new information without taking action. This leads to more distraction and undone goals.

    I have always been interested in computers and internet, specially games and wasting my time on them. First time I got introduced in internet marketing and making money online was when my brother participate in IM course. It was held by local internet marketing guru. You can read his latest work at ConversionXL.

    My ego reminds quite often I can have impressive success online. You may ask why I haven´t any decent success online.

    I have a numerous reasons for this:

    1. Very hard to focus. I think I may have ADD (or something else). Still figuring that out. I have an appointment to psychotherapist in 7[SUP]th[/SUP] of November. Hope she can help me with my problem to focus etc.
    2. Hardcore comfort zone (I always have some money to spend, but it´s not mine (hint: heritage))
    3. Bit lazy, but I think it´s because of lack of motivation
    4. Sticking to one method long enough

    7 reasons for this journey:

    1. Keep me motivated
    2. I want to get myself focused
    3. I want to have success online
    4. Give motivation and advise to other folks
    5. Earn lots of money because there is not much left in my wallet
    6. Develop my English writing skills
    7. Test different methods and ideas I have collected in my endless mind

    I have to say that I get huge boost of motivation from Matthew Woodward. Amazing guy! I hope I can send my income reports to him one day in the new year (let´s make it a goal to archive). I know its call for lots of work and hours in front of the computer and I think I am finally ready to face it.

    Actually I have been pretty successful in local market. I have my local website http://www.purjetamine.com/ and we offer sailing services to tourists and local clients. But we can be much more successful with it when we put little bit more effort on internet marketing and rank more keywords in local search. Here´s the yacht. My dream sailing yacht is Bavaria 50 cruiser.

    It was introduction post to my journey thread and about who I am. In my next post I will treat you with updates what I´m going to do in next day´s and weeks, basically what are the methods and my long term approach to internet monies, also what tools I have and how much money to spend. I want to try again with Adsense and PPD and later with media buying.

    Wish me luck and please don´t bash me like “You have been here for three years and you haven´t any success whatsoever on the internet marketing. Lame!” I was as honest as I can be in writing this first post of my journey. I have been lying to myself too long.

    All questions are welcomed and thanks for reading this long post!

    UPDATE #1

    This is my first update after prolog. Ten days are passed since last update. It means nothing, because this ONE is real journey post and things really getting serious. Last ten days was intense thinking and research what im gonna do with internet marketing and my approach to it.

    Adsense and micro niches

    I want to try again with Adsense and SEO because its long term and I have lots of knowledge in SEO. I also have money to invest. I aleady ordered 10 MNS websites from King Maker. At first he provide me with keywords only in health niche, but I want to test two niches at once so I requested 5 new keywords. Hope to get them soon. If my micros start earning me some money I will go with quality and autohority

    Five keywords are already registered. Waiting for King Maker to add articles and themes. He do basic SEO, but Im going to do some more. I am going to build my own blog network. I already have some sites on my network, but its nothing special. I also have some basic SEO tools. I want to invest in Ultimate Demon, but Im not going to just buy it. I want to earn money with PPD and then buy it.

    PPD

    I have earned with PPD before and Im going to try it again. My brother is pretty good at it so we are going to do it together. Already did some research on niches and found some pretty promising ones. I will do my accounts by myself and start to upload videos. Luckily I can use my good friend skills. He can do me some epic videos not just some lame screen recording. He is also very good in acting and can make noobs to believe in anything.

    Other toughts

    As you know I have local business with my brother. For my local websites Im going to write bucnh of new articles and make backlinks to them. Prices are pretty high for sailing so only with little traffic push you can make loads of money. Its almost winter here in Estonia so its good time to rank more keywords etc.

    This is brief instructions upon my approach to next weeks. In my next post I write more detailed about exact actions I take and have taken. I dont want to talk about money and how much I want to make with all that. In the future I want to make money to invest in media buying. IMO if you master media buying then you dont have to worrie about all the google updates etc.

    Place where all those things going to happen:

    My brothers update

    Meanwhile my brother using 7878 - "22 - letters" method. He search dentists who dont have website and not even own email address. 26 letters sended out yesterday - still waiting phone calls, if there is no phones calls until Monday, then he calls them by himself. 150 contacts with now website still waiting to sending out...

    All the best,
