I have been reading a lot of different opinions on how much time you need to invest to make internet marketing work so I made this thread to try to come to a conclusion. I know that this topic is a really hard topic to come to a conclusion as different people need to spend different time in here, so I will talk to you about my projects and hopefully you can tell me if I am in the right path. I am a busy man at the moment, going to start college next week, I have started internet marketing 2 months ago, I started with Pay Per Download (making 30$ first month and 300$ the next). Until now this all seems very easy for me, I suspect CPC and Affiliate Marketing will be somewhat harder than PPD as all I have done in PPD could be done by anyone. My goals are to outsource most of the work (only write affiliate emails and keyword research myself), in order to earn 500$ monthly with 2-4 hours of work every day. Is this possible? So far I have created a list of low competition keywords with 1-2k monthly searches, built a micro niche blog focusing currently on 5 keywords (3 of them are very easy to rank, bought a seo service and I am expecting to rank within top 5) and bought a facebook cupon to start a facebook campaing. How much success can I expect from being top 5 for those 3 keywords + around 50 daily traffic from facebook? Cliffs: -18 and starting college, can only spend 2-4 hours per day on internet marketing. -Outsourcing all the work minus the keyword research and emails to email list. -Want to know if it is even possible to reach 500$ monthly this way. -Built 1 micro niche, currently trying to rank for 5 keywords. 1k - 2,5k exact montly searches. -3 Of the keywords are extreemely low competition, ranking 6th without backlinks for one already. -How much cash per day can I expect from adsense and affiliate from this blog?
