Hello there people, I am starting this thread to keep motivation up and track my progress. I am quite new to IM, I found BHW 6 months ago and that's where it all started. I have tried a lot of methods, some failed, some made a bit of money, but nothing sustainable. I have a background in graphic & web design, self taught. I started a Journey thread with Amazon affiliate, but quickly realised it's not my thing. I have two websites for making money online at the moment: eCommerce Shopify website Will try and rank and make sales with SEO. Competition isn't the best, so long term it should make some sales. It's a waiting game at the moment while BLs are getting indexed and what not. "Services" site To get sales I will try classified ads, bulk email and other stuff. I won't talk much about what this site is since I want to keep it a secret. It doesn't make sales often, but when it does it's approximately $2000 in profit and I can do it all from home. I am gonna try some marketing stuff with this site, no SEO since it just won't work well with it.. I think, I will look into it more later. Two sales a month with this site and I would be golden. What I've done on the eCommerce: Created logo and branding for eCommerce Created social media accounts for eCommerce eCommerce connected to domain and set live Full on site/page SEO with lots of original/quality content (some still needs re-editing) 100-150 backlinks in various forms Hopefully some sales from my service site can bring in some budget for backlinks. I have gotten 60 hits on the eCommerce via Google No sales yet though. But hey, it's been two weeks - Patience. I have never tried ranking a site before (except my old journey with an affiliate site that was up for 2 weeks). I learnt what SEO meant recently, and I've read and studied it for 2 months so, I am not a pro on it. I have some leads for my other site, but most clients always fall through. They're interested, ask questions, then bolt. Will update with how my marketing shit works for this one. Wish me luck.
