    Hello everyone,
    Firstly, I would just like to say that I have created a fresh account in order to contribute to these types of forums. My old name on here was linked to the domain that I'm going to be monetizing, so you can see why I preferred not to post using it.


    Alright, now that's cleared up.. A little over a year ago I was earning $200/day with tumblr. 9 months, 120,000 followers and $45,000 in revenue later.. my account was unfairly terminated. (was mass reported by someone trying to steal my method)

    I tried to replicate these results but tumblr had flagged my IP and subsequent accounts were banned once they started taking off. I could have used proxies and changed my MAC address but honestly I was too angry at the time to think logically - just gave up on the whole thing and got a "real job" (which I later regretted). The money kept trickling in but about 6 months after termination it has come to a halt.

    So now, here I am again, determined and motivated to get at least halfway back to where I was before. ($100/day). Though this time I am using my OWN domain so that losing my income stream won't be as simple as having an account banned! Once I see success in the main domains method, I'll be creating a second one in another niche (in case something happens to the first one, and to get extra income.)

    Ps: I'm using meatheads clickbank method. Most of you should know what that is.



    • The main website I have made is in the weightloss/fitness niche. And yes, I know.. it's apparently 'over-saturated' - but I am very knowledgeable about this subject, have lost over 30 pounds myself. I also currently have a combination of popular social media accounts: tumblr (13k) instagram (17k) twitter (2k) where I post about my personal journey.. They have the same name as the domain I had so I figured it was a great place to start. This main website is not just a review site, it is more personal and is generally there to help people improve there life (along with get me some money) - so therefore I will only be promoting legitimate products and no 'get skinny fast' type diets. I feel like this can be really successful as the trust factor is high among those who visit the site.




    >>OVERVIEW OF THE FIRST 2 WEEKS<<

    Anyway.. It has been 2 weeks since I put up my website using WP. I have focused mainly on posting content, reviews and designing my site. Also have used my social accounts to drive traffic and make people aware of the site. Though no product promotion or anything like that during this phase.

    WEBSITE/CLICKBANK STATS:

    • Average of 150 UV's per day
    • 40 hops
    • 0 sales

    MONEY INVESTED:

    • $0.01 - promotional 1 month of hostgator hosting.

    MONEY EARNED:

    • $0.00 total


    Already had my own domain, and got a free premium wordpress theme from a friend. I'll probably be switching hosts once the free host gator month is up. I don't particularly like them much but just wanted to test this first with little to no investment.

    >>YESTERDAY'S EFFORT<<


    Yesterday, I started finally focusing on promotion. Posted quality comments with links to my articles on blog posts/news sites. During the night I got a massive flood of traffic, and made my first sale(s)!



    WEBSITE/CLICKBANK STATS:

    • A flood of over 500 UV's
    • 60 hops
    • 4 sales

    MONEY INVESTED:

    • $0.01 - promotional 1 month of hostgator hosting.

    MONEY EARNED:

    • $24.00 total

    I'd say that went amazingly well. Very motivating to finally see some incoming flowing in. I can do this!

    >>TODAY'S EFFORT<<
    Well im once again getting traffic from those links i dropped the other day. Haven't done any promotion yet. Actually spent the past day enchancing my site. Install sumome plugin and got some email opt-in forms rolling. Allowed user registration and made the comments section look really good. Got a few people commenting on stuff so i thought it was about time to enchance the user interaction. Got share buttons everywhere.

    I also just hosted a giveaway to drive people to the site. I know thats not part of meatheads guide but this obviously has a lot of my own twists. We will see how that goes.

    Should have been dropping links like I planned but honestly it escaped me. On the bright side, the website looks 10x better than it did yesterday :)

    Thanks everyone! And just so you know, I'm female. But It's all good to call me bro/mate - I get that a lot.

    Anyway, honestly I left a few comments on a really popular site that contributed to the discussion really well. So everyone just flooded into my site. Got lucky I guess? Though I did plan that :p I think it just helps that I put a face to my name and all that, so people are more willing to go to my site. (and it doesn't look like spam)

    Got no sales today but I really wasnt expecting to anyway as I barely worked on promotion. Though I have gotten 100 hops over to a different affiliate site, and 40 opt-ins to their mailing list. Hopefully that list converts some of those people, cause they've got lifetime tracking cookies :)

    Hi, walwus.
    Good job there is a lot of motivation in your post.
    I'm "working" on something the last five months, but I still haven't uploaded a single article and Imagine that I have spent almost 120$ , looks like I'm doing something wrong.

    I have one question:
    You upload many articles plus the review articles or only review articles.

    Best regards,
    Khaico.

    First of all, thank you everyone! My strategy is kind of mixed, a little SEO + social media + commenting on articles. I dont do PPC as of yet.

    And as for the last question, I have written 6 articles, only 1 of which is a review article. And one other article has an affiliate link inside it. I have gotten 3 sales on each of these two articles. Maybe that will help you decide what to do

    Well I worked all day today (9 hours) at my real job - where I earn like $14 an hour.. yuck. Didn't have time to work at all on my website. But i've gotten a bunch of traffic and some hops/leads today from previous promotion and the giveaway that i've set up to drive readers to my articles. Got another sale today which was kind of unexpected :)
