    Hi guys,
    I was not totally a newbie in IM. 2 years ago, I was earning about $50/month with JVzoo by spammy backlink and auto-content. Until Google update and my site got banned. So I quit.
    Now, I have a full-time job in my hometown with the monthly salary of $250 (Sadly, It's normal in Vietnam)
    So, I come back to IM and start this journey. With my income, everything I can invest is $150 a month, no more. And my target is earned up to $150 a month in next 6 month, then I can use the profit to re-invest and scale the site to Authority.
    Sounds crazy, huh?
    I'll try to do most of the things by myself, only outsource content, keywords, and backlinks.
    --------
    I spend few days in expireddomains.net to find a good domain to start. I found one. DA=16, PA=30, TF=2, CF=12, clean history, clean backlinks. It was a real blog of a woman who has three kids. I took it and started.
    Q: Why expired domain?
    A: An expired domain has some backlink already. It also releases to my niche (Baby). If this site can make money, I'll scale it to an Authority Site.
    --------
    Domain and hosting
    I choose Godaddy Wordpress Manager hosting ($12/year for both Domain and Hosting). People said that Godaddy hosting is suck, so I use WP-Rocket and CloudFlare to cache and speed up my site.
    -----
    Themes and Plugins
    I used Divi Theme, Thrive Builder, WP Review Pro, WP Rocket. All of them are from Groupbuy. I don't want to use Thrive theme because I already have my knowledge in Divi. I created logo myself, too.
    -----
    Contents
    I bought a pack of content from @bossofthebosses . 10 dollars for 5 articles. The seller gives me 1 review article and 8 articles. I used 2 of them on my money site, 1 for guest posting and still have 5 left. (Articles are good, but the content is not suitable for my site.)
    -----
    Backlinks
    I make blog comment by myself on real mom/parent/baby care blog.
    I used a review copy of @IamKing
    I posted a guest post at PA 15/DA 36 site.
    -----
    So far:
    Spend : $12 (Domain + Hosting) + $20 (Group buy Premium themes) + $10 (Contents) = $42
    Earn: $0
    Total: -$42
    -----
    My plan?
    Continous blog comment and build Web 2.0 by myself.
    Buy a keyword package from @namhq89 ($30).
    Find a good writer to write 3*2000 words articles. (Can you recommend someone?)
    Find a writer to re-write 15000 words MRR ebook about child safe.
    Use @lightningblitz Cheap SEO Guide to rank some easy keywords.
    God bless me :)

    Hi I am on the sam journey working on two website one of them is news web and other one is niche website. Website are not doing good in current as I think designing part sucks. I have no money to invest in designing of website Which i think is the most important part to get website noticed by visitors. If your ads are not placed at right place no one is going to click them.

    Lets get connected and share experience to make it $150 a month journey.

    So, I have a question. How are you planning to monetize your website. Is it through Adsense?

    Big thanks for @IamKing @Nichekid @https://www.blackhatworld.com/members/james-welker.884842/r and @https://www.blackhatworld.com/members/jason-bradbury.1010493/
    God bless you, bro
    First, I will rank for Long tail information keywords to have traffic and earn some money through Adsense, but my long-term game is for Amazon and ClickBank.
    It's a Vietnamese Facebook Group :)
