    Hey guys!

    This is my first journey post, and I'm always in awe of what you guys manage to achieve.

    Recently, I've taken upon my own journey, and it's a little less conventional, than CPC, or adsense related, it's a little bit more sit down and do stuff for other people.

    Anyway!

    My name is Roger, and I setup some blogs, web stores and managed instagram accounts for some friends, and I decided to turn it in to a business called "Roger That Media".

    Using a bunch of hints, tips and advice I decided to branch out, and setup my own services building pages, sites and blogs for people.

    A lot of what I did was automated, I charged £45 a month for basic instagram account management - scheduling posts using Latergram, using Instagress to auto like pictures, and then using Ninjagram to cycle / uncycle followers. Now, this was all ok on low level stuff, and I don't know how I'd progress if I managed to get more than 30+ accounts - I manage roughly about 15 at the moment in different niches from Streetwear to Tattoos, all good niches, and they're responding well, one Instagram account went from 800 followers to over 5,500 in less than two months based on the content.

    I then decided to start flat rate selling blog upgrades, and blog installations.

    Using GoDaddy, I setup a service for £60 I would install (or transfer from blogger, wordpress.com or tumblr) and host, with domain a wordpress based blog for them. The GD cost to me, was £13.65 - so for the additional fee, I got to keep for maybe 25 minutes work - playing with themes, installing Yoast, and maybe a few other features. To date, I've sold nearly 25 of these (mostly to friends - but they're recommending).

    Also, using GoDaddy, I would setup (or sometimes transfer) webstores, trying to compete with BigCartel, and setting up a WooCommerce for people, charging £150 for basic setup (no products) to £650 with products (I would use Cart2Cart Migration, costing $65) - and then I would offer a call out charge for help and support. The basic cost for a business wordpress on godaddy is £58, so the profit margin again was quite good. I have since setup 3 of these, it's a bit more time consuming, sometimes with variations, it can take 3/4 hours, but again, it's good money.

    I've been running now for less than a month, and I've cleared nearly £3k, and that's not including the instagrams I run.

    It's a good market to get out too, especially if friends are technological minded.

    I'm running a local social media class, with the hopes of passing off some sales then too!

    Thanks guys!
