Hey! My name is Karupoiss and this is my 4th or 5th or something journey thread. Why 4th or 5th? Because lack of consistency has been the biggest reason why I have failed to earn a full time living via IM. I have abandoned the last threads because I gave up on the methods or I kept earning and was too lazy to scale up until the method stopped working and I was back at square one. Why $34/day? Because that is the average wage in my country that people earn in a month after paying taxes. I know I can earn much more in IM but this would be my first goal - if I would make that then I could live pretty comfortably on my own (instead of my mom basement). Naah.. just kidding, I don't live in a basement - we keep the kids from Halloween there I have been the slave of my own laziness and lack of self belief for too long, I have wasted years because of that and I can't live like this any more. If I don't change my ways of life then I will be fucked forever, none of my dreams will come true and I will just degrade into a pathetic old man full of regrets and "what ifs". I have been reading and testing different things in IM for over 4 years and I have had some successes but my lack of work discipline and the ever changing nature of IM has brought me back to having no mentionable income. What is good about this period though is that I have learned a lot about different things and I have an understanding of what to do (in theory). Anyways, I really want to succeed this time and really turn a new page in my life! GAMEPLAN I have read a lot of threads about SEO and Amazon affiliate sites, some threads I have read 5+ times to obtain every single bit of information they hide within. I must mention @meathead1234 thread here http://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/me...on-newbie-friendly-phase-5a-published.832879/ and @splishsplash guides about competition evaluation and silo site structure here http://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/su...ilding-step-by-step-blueprint-9-parts.825593/ Theses two threads have given me belief that even I, who has failed so many times with SEO, could finally build a site that brings in money long term. I will build an Amazon affiliate niche site. I have already found a niche and gathered all the keywords. I think the competition is around 4-5/10. This was the easiest I could find after a week of search (it's difficult to know which sites are using hidden PBNs and which are ranking from the random forum posts they have built to the site). I have already bought a domain and hosting + I have chosen a theme and set up couple of plug ins. Now I just need to dive into the niche and start writing articles. I will be writing all the articles myself because I am poor I am afraid of doing it because I am not that confident in my English skills but I hope they are not the worst and visitors would forgive a mistake or two here and there. My second goal, as kind of a backup plan or alternate income source, is to build a list in another niche and promote Clickbank product. The niche is something I can talk about hours and give very good advice in but it is also super saturated with other marketers. I have tried to build the list in this niche several times before and I have always set up the sales funnel only to abandon it all because I failed to get traffic. I have already a free ebook that is pretty solid that I will give away for free for the email. I also have written the first couple of emails where I offer free value. I have not written any promotional emails yet because I don't know how to go about it. My way of getting traffic would be Instagram and if that doesn't work out then promoting in forums in my signature. I would be using single opt in because the last time I used double opt in I got like 16% of sign up rate which is pretty bad. I know that people sell to the same people several times but it's a bit hard for me to grasp how to sell multiple stuff to the same people or send them the same offer several times before they just buy it or unsubscribe. I hope it's just a limiting belief of mine that it can't be done because people are obviously doing it so there is no reason why I can't do it. Things don't need to be perfect - just get something out there and then try to improve.
