Sorry to add a new Journey thread, but I felt like the journey has evolved slightly over the past two weeks and I wanted to make sure the title and method/formatting was clear from the start. If you want to read a long winded introduction, find my other journey thread on RedBubble and you can learn about me, where I've been and how I got here. Hopefully this can be cleaner, clearer and more helpful to those looking to start in IM. Really this process involves zero technical knowledge, and can be done with relatively zero investment as well. One of the reasons I'm so adamant about starting up this journey thread, to help those who want to get their feet wet in the IM world. Goal: To earn $50/day with a passive* source of income. *No More Than 8 Hours a Week (for $50/day, less for less) General Method Goal: Use free Tumblr traffic to promote my own designs on RedBubble directly (10% Commission), as well as others' designs through ShareaSale Affiliate Program(10% Commission). Use a Fiverr Gig to drive income to use on additional designs from Fiverr designers for my own personal product collection. Tools: Picloadr Premium Account ($10/3 Months), GoogleImageRipper (free), Bulk Images Download ZIG (free) Actual Method: Search for a niche to start that you feel comfortable with, design a product to upload to a RedBubble artist account (or order from Fiverr if you lack the creative juices). Using Bulk Images Download, search GoogleImageRipper for niche images related to products design (hint: instead of searching "Doctor Who", try "Doctor Who Art" or other longer keywords to get less common/more attractive shareable images). Using Picloadr + Tumblr account(s), upload 300 images (max) to the Tumblr Queue with relevant tags, click through link (to product), and brief description with link ("Check out this awesome shirt on RedBubble here!"). Tumblr accounts to have queue set to 50 images a day, with attractive or relevant profile image, and relevant account name. Biggest Challenge: Discovering new niche markets to advertise to that have active communities and are not too dense with content, coming up with new product designs, patience when some days are quieter than others Biggest Advantage:Once you build a good product collection, it does become very easy and continues to be passive. For each niche, I only refresh my photo content every month, if not longer - this process is all about tag discovery and you will not be relying on followers to advertise to, so your content only needs to be original on a weekly basis. Once a week I simply log in to my Picloadr account, select which blogs to post to, select my folder, write my tags down and hit submit. The hardest part is waiting in between uploads (Picloadr is not on the fastest server in the world, by far). I have been doing this for a couple of months, up until this week I have built up to 10 products on RedBubble, and 12 Tumblr blogs on my Picloadr account (all running one product, two products I doubled my efforts on due to a dense fan base). My total income since I started on November 2, 2014 has been $310.64 (88 Days - $3.50/day since I started, with a majority of my first month and a half sitting on just one product and figuring the process out. and two weeks to start the year of not queuing up anything because of other business). This week I have started to ramp up the number of Tumblr blogs I maintain, as well as the number of products I have in my own personal collection, and the amount of ShareaSale advertising I do for other products. I will be using this to track my progress on a month to month basis. I will hope to be updating M-F, explaining my goals for the days or weeks, and keeping a running total of income (monthly/yearly), number of products, number of blogs, etc. I welcome all questions, comments, and concerns regarding the matter - and look forward to some conversation regarding what I do, and how I can do it better. I know $50/day is a far away goal, but the only way to get there is to start trying to get there.
