    Hi all, ;)

    I am from the UK (if that's relevant). I've created this thread so I could motivate myself in reaching $30 a day. I created this account a few weeks ago and I've already learnt a lot. I started looking at ways to make money online, and a lot of it was rubbish! Started with taking surveys which is useless if you want to be earning a lot of money. I totally ignored affiliate marketing; thinking I could never sell anything and that it was all too complicated. After looking through this forum and reading everybody's journeys I think I will give it a go! These are the things I've tried so far:

    • I registered with some CPA networks. I haven't made a single penny. I think it might be a game of luck. Hopefully I might get back into that. I avoid all black hat methods because I have a BIG conscience, I also get anxiety and hate everything illegal or immoral:(. It works for a lot of people, and even if I made 10k a month I would feel very guilty :(. Maybe that's why I haven't had much success. No idea.
    • I took a cpa offer, built a landing page with a domain I was not really using. I played around with fb ads, and I targeted the UK. Didn't make any leads. Probably because I set my maximum budget at £1 hahahaha. Not planning any more paid ads soon until i've succeeded with free traffic!
    • I've also tried a health-related niche, made a site and bought a domain - no leads. With this site my mistake was being too broad and not focusing on a specific area of that niche. It didn't have much direction.
    • I've tried a niche related to a popular Facebook game, made fb ads and made a mistake of boosting the post instead of website clicks. All I got was about 1k likes and no website clicks! I can safely say I've learnt a lot haha. :D. It was also an extremely saturated niche.

    I spent the last few days looking into building affiliate sites and SEO. I hope to achieve a stable income but it will take hard work and focus. I still don't know a lot of things about affiliate marketing. I spend a lot of time searching through forums and sites for methods that work, when actually experience is the best teacher.

    So I will update my journey. I will make a lot of mistakes, but who hasn't? I've noticed a lot of people who make $500 - $1k+ now, made a lot of mistakes and due to learning from those mistakes, have reached that amount and more! As I update, feel free to post advice and questions. I will try and reveal everything I can so that any newbie can hopefully benefit from it.
    Right now my head is buzzing with information and ideas and I need to write them down somewhere. I will write down a plan and post that shortly.
    :D:D:D:D:D

    Ok so here's the plan

    1. Find a good niche
    2. Create a website
    3. Create blog posts that target a relevant keyword, looking for five hundred words per post
    4. Get it to rank in Google, back links and social media creation
    5. Might add some reviews to it too and try and monetize it

    here goes

    Good luck on your journey mate :) You are bound to make mistakes when you start something new, you shouldn't let these mistakes stop you. Keep learning from your mistakes :) Anyone who hasn't made any mistakes, haven't tried anything new ;) :p

    Update 1 (29/11/2015)
    I brainstormed a lot of niches today, haven't done much else. It helps if you start with a broad niche and narrow it down, so that's what I've done. The niche must also have buying potential. The one I am currently doing is something I am experienced with, so that should help when creating content. I think if I didn't have knowledge of a niche it would take me a long time to write articles.

    Its 9pm in London, and I start early tomorrow, so might call it a day. Tomorrow's plan is to build a website, and get 1-2 articles done. I don't think I will have time though; I have 3 university assignments due next week, and i've spent a lot of time researching affiliate marketing and sort of neglected everything else. I will try and manage more of my time and fit everything in. Will post update soon.
