Hello everybody on BHW that's reading this post! As you can see from my join date, I am just a baby on this site. Like a dummy, I jumped right into IM fully not understanding anything whatsoever. However, in doing so I've immersed myself with information and I can start to see a plan forming from my first impulsive move. Before we start I would like to say that I've honestly took on a monster. I first started thinking that this would be maybe a 1-2 week quick get rich quick idea, but as I started investing my time and energy on it, I've come to realize that I've just landed on the tip of the ice berg. Since everybody is super secretive on their 'Journey' posts, I'll be secretive too and wont say the exact niche I'm in. But let's just say it's not really a niche I jumped into but a multi-billion dollar market...:speechles But honestly, I already love what I've been doing and the deeper I go, the more I enjoy working on everything. What I've done so far: So far, I've created a website, facebook page, twitter, and instagram account based around my niche and all related to eachother. I've spun articles around and basically rewrote them just so my website has something on it. Currently have 15 on my website. I plan to start writing my own articles based on the ideas and problems I find through reddit, Google Alerts and other content. What I'm trying to do: Building organic traffic through social media. Researching KW for articles and tiered back-links. Focusing on building my Instagram empire. (not too focused on others atm, just wanted the names and I'm building community manually) Increasing quality of article posts on website. The main focus of right now is quality of content. I don't plan to monetize anytime soon until I see a good number of daily unique visitors. I hope to share experience with all of you. From the future mistakes I'll be making and the success I'll be having. There is one thing that I've learned from this forum already. Success through IM isn't a question of "If I'm going to make it" but rather "when". This is going to be a long journey and I hope by making this diary it will help me make friends along the way. Please comment and share your support,thoughts, and tips! I love input.
