    Hey Everyone! I hope this is in the right place, I'm still fairly new to this!
    I decided to keep a journal of what I do everyday to help me stay focused and motivated. And hopefully some of you will learn something and probably more of you will even help me! :D

    I have been in the 'online road to rich's dream' for the past 2-3 months now. I have learned many things since starting, mainly through failure. But I will not give up! I havn't made any money yet except until 3 days ago where I sold 2 ebooks for a total of 45.11$ from clickbank. I was super stoked! Well, until I realized that was kind of a one day thing...

    So here I am. 3 months into the game. I have read tons of ebooks on how to make money online (paying for some... I know I know, what a noob:rolleyes:) and believe I have enough base knowledge to start seeing some sales come through!

    I will be posting everyday exactly what I do and my sales stats. And I will consider today day one! Even though it's been 3 months :eek: Today everything I list under the things I have done is everything I have going on right now. So read on and hopefully you will learn something from me! And even better yet, I hope ya'll will be able to teach me something!

    DAY 1
    Today I spent most of the day reading through forums trying to see what other people are doing out there. Someone said it was a good Idea to keep a log of your work and set goals so here I am. This is what I have so far...

    • Own a wordpress blog on my own private domain. TheHealthDirect. It generates about 3-10 unique visitors a day, but I have never made a sale through it. I am promoting clickbank ebooks on it.
    • Own two fake facebook pages. One with 600 friends. The other with 100. I know this is pretty worthless, however I have made my only two sales by posting the clickbank link the status.
    • Bought a couple fiverr gigs that gave me 100,000 twitter views. I made no clickbank sales from that gig and it's been a while.
    • Started a youtube channel. Infodicret. Yes I know... I spelled Dicret wrong when I made the account :( It was supposed to be direct! I put videos from my affiliates and put my clickbank link in the description.
    • I even have a porn site. My sponsor is pimproll. My site is lesbiansallday. It gets around 30-40 visitors a day. But I have made no money from it yet. Check it out and give me an input if you want.
    • Thought about starting a google adsense account. What are your opinions on that?
    • Set my goal of making 2 sales a day through clickbank. This goal will hopefully be reached very soon so I can set my goals much higher. I like to set goals at small intervals so I can see myself progress by reaching them everytime.
    Money made so far: $45.11




    It would be great if someone could point me in the right direction and follow my journal to help see where i'm at. PM me if you want to skype! :p
    I will be posting more and always ready to answer any questions and take advice!


    THANKS EVERYONE FOR READING:)

    Hi!
    Maybe you have too much projects at the beginning. You could focus on one to start.
    That s not mean that your projects are Bads, they are greats. With blogs you have to work with seo for traffic.
    Youtube, take care with affiliate links, they could ban you quick. Twitter, you need to have lots of followers to make sells, try freebies or content locker with cpa, and you CAN try adfly too. For porn, there s networks who pay you per images views. Plus, add mobile redirect . There s a tactic here in bhw about this,
    I m not an expert that s my knowledge today.

    Thanks for the info. Would you happen to know any names of porn affiliates that pay per image click? That would be very interesting to see how that converts. For the CPA I think I want to reach my clickbank goal before I start another project or it's just too much on my plate right now:ballchain

    I will post later today what I did today and how my stats are looking so be sure to check back later :eek:

    PS: Are there any good threads on BHW you would recommended for me to read about using SEO to boost my blog?

    PPS: Any good recommendations for driving traffic to my porn site? I have used thehun to submit one of my galleries and got 25,000 views in a single day, but that's before my site was set up good with my affiliates link everywhere. Also, I have submitted more of my galleries to their directory and it's been some weeks now and they still haven't listed my page so I need to try something else. Any advise is seriously appreciated

    DAY 2

    Ok, so today was another saleless day.:confused: BUT! but but but there is good news. I did a lot of reading on the BHW and did some more learning about backlinks. I think i'm going to start putting out more backlinks to my blog. Anyone have any tips on that?

    Here is what I did today

    • Posted a 9$ ebook link from clickbank account in a personal message and sent it to all my 777 friends on my fake facebook page. Something about 'getting rich through ebay'. Does anyone have experience of what ebooks might sell better on facebook? Not sure if I ever want to do that again thou... It was a lot of work:ballchain
    • Did more research, but haven't come across anything to new or excited. If you recommend me any threads on here please send me the link! I would be glad to read it. :D
    • Wrote an article on Panic Disorder and put links to my clickbank all up in there. Haha I got dirty with them links just spraying them all over like sprinkles on top of an ice cream. I put this article on my wordpress
    Current Stats:
    Todays sales: $0.00
    Blog views: 5




    I will not be discouraged by this! I know it's only a matter of time before I find a way that works for me :cool: Everyday I'm learning more and more and I would love you guys to share information on here so we can all learn from this and achieve GREATNESS TOGETHER:D

    Cool, I love seeing these journeys. If you just keep updating every day, you'll see success. It's seems as if when people stop updating, everything goes to hell.

    Regards.

    DAY 3

    Well today could have gone better...:( I'm posting this day 3 early today, even though it's technically day 4. I put an HDMI cable in my laptop to play a movie on the TV and boom my laptop shut off and won't turn back on. It's K.O'ed:sheep: I'm going to take it to best buy or somewhere later and hopefully they can fix it. If not I'm defiantly going to somehow get the hard drive out. I have thousands in ebooks and software GRRRR Not to mention a bunch of great pictures I don't want to lose. Now I really have to make some sales asap so I can buy a new laptop!

    Here is what I did today:

    • Sent a clickbank link all over facebook through my fake account with 800 friends. Not sure how much longer I will keep at this method, but i'll give it another few days and see if anything happens.
    • Bought 10,000 backlinks to my blog. The guy selling them is actually here on BHW. I'll be posting a review on how that turns out in the next day or 2. My blog got 6 views today
    • Bought 10,000 e-mails from someone else here on BHW. 5,000 for weight loss and 5,000 for my porn site. Any suggestions how I can send out 5,000 e-mails? Could my normal google account send that many mails? I'll be posting on my success with that.
    • Read through the forum for more information selling Clickbank. I think I might try expanding my youtube account. Add a few more videos with my clickbank link in the description.
    Sales Today: $0.00


    I have a day off so I will be putting a lot of work into this today and hopefully my report tonight will be more promising. I am open to any suggestions.:) I'm a little mad about the whole laptop thing. Now I can't work on my stuff unless I'm at home and I don't have the money right now for a new one :(


    If you have any suggestions on a good laptop for a decent price please give a shout-out. My current one that broke is an ACER 18'. It was like 680$

    SEO Pressor plugin for Wordpress gives you all the information you need to optimize your posts and pages. It should be available on BHW if you search. If not, PM me.

    I actually have the SEO plugin. Just not exactly sure how it works....

    I have SEO Pressor, Platinum SEO and Web Traffic Genus Pro. I will probably spend more time later trying to figure out how to properly use them. Does it create the most searched tags for me?

    DAY 4

    I took my laptop to best buy (Gook Squad) and they couldn;t figure out what was wrong with it :confused: BUT I'm ordering a new laptop tomorrow :D So today, like the past dew days I have been doing a lot of reading around the forums. I have gotten really interested in the idea of mass e-mailing. And promoting my blog or porn site through that.

    Here is what I did Today:

    • Bought 10,000 current e-mails. The problem is I don't know how to send them. Can anyone give me some ideas. Could I do it through my hostgator account? Or would that be a bad idea? I might start a new thread about sending bulk e-mail
    • Re-did my porn site so my gallery pages would be accepted by an adult directory I have submitted to. No sales yet with that...
    • Wrote a new article for thehealthdirect. My blog got 5 views
    That's pretty much it for today. Things sure have slowed down :( I really hope to figure this internet thing out and get a few sales through that. I just need to figure out how to send them...


    Total sales today: $0.00

    Today is my day off and I have some time to do work on my stuff. I have a question :D I currently have a porn site lesbiansallday dotty commy. But have not made any sales through it in 2 months, getting about 40 visitors a day.:( I was thinking about setting up a more blog type porn site. Maybe a different niche. My questions is could I use wordpress through my hostgator account for this porn blog? Or would wordpress delete my account? What do you suggest I do.

    I am an affiliate with PimpRoll. Where do I get the content for my blog, I guess it would be called articles right? Could someone upload a couple thousand articles to the site? Or should I do that myself.

    I have also been looking at a 'self hosted tube' that my affiliate offers. Would this be worth it to buy a new domain for? Has anyone had experience with this type of site? Any information would be greatly appreciated!

    If anyone could help push me in the right direction so I can actually see some conversions on my site that would be great!:chicken_w

    DAY 5

    This will just be a quick update to let you guys know where I'm at. I didn't have the chance to post last night. Got a little too drunk :p I have some GOOD news. My porn site got 11,000 visitors last night. However, no sales! :(
    Not sure why this is... out of those 11,000 500 of them clicked on the adds and 140 of them got to the sign up page. But nobody signed up.... hmmm

    Here is what I did today:

    • Bought scrapebox. Super interested to see how this works out. I think I'm going to send out a ton of backlinks to my pornsite and blog. What do you guys think about this? I was thinking maybe 10,000 backlinks to each site everyday
    • Talked about my blog site on some forums. Got 17 visitors today. More than usual, but still a TINY number :eek:
    • Worked on my pornsite some. Made some adds look more appealing to get my visitors to click on them
    • Did a ton more research and debating if I should start the whole content locker idea. Maybe I'll just stick with sharecash... Instead of making my own content locker for now.:cool:
    Money made today: $0.00


    I will be putting some serious work into this today and see what happens. If you have any advice or suggestions it is welcomed. I need some guidance!!! THANKS EVERYONE :chicken_w

    Sorry i m late to give you answers,
    Well there s a topic nammed " earning with adult image on twitter" . It s almost this title. You will easely find it.
    For seo, there s no really secrets. Use meta tag, keywords description title... Plus you need to post your link in good place for backlinks. Lots of backlinks is great but quality is really better. It s not an easy work.
    And about porn, you just need to know that: there s lots of free content! So that s not easy today to become rich with this stuff. I think, i m not an expert, you need to create a very sp├ęcial porn niche content.
    Or try to be crazy, and fake exclusive content with your own content locker.
    Also, you can try to sell dating online ebook. There s one topic about that, i don t remember the title sorry.
    This ebook show some easy steps on how you can have success with dating website. Then in your ebook you add some dating website affiliates links with comment rating " this website is perfect, here girls are really hot, i met almost 54 girls and i had sex with 34! ".
    So you can create your own ads in your website about your ebook " the secrets to have sex with 100 girls the NeXT month! It s free! Click here to learn more". Then use content locker for the download. And in your custom sell page say it s free but i have to use content lock for any reason.
    That s only some idea i have found in bhw, i m not an expert.
