    sheepy's journey
    from $0 to $100/day
    1/01/2014 - 1/31/2014

    Hi BHW :eek:

    Internet marketing has always fascinated me. For years I've browsed BHW and other IM forums. And while I've made some hobby sites on the past and thrown some ads on them, I've never done any actual internet marketing. But it's time for that to change.

    Special thanks to kinlee, your journey has inspired and motivated me to try my hand at CPA. (I'm also somewhat stealing your thread layout)

    the plan
    • Drive traffic to landing pages for CPA offers and Amazon products.
    • My main traffic method is secret :) it's something I've never quite seen done before, at least, not quite in this way. It will either be very successful or a massive flop.
    • My secondary traffic method will be creating/uploading/ranking YouTube videos related to my chosen offers/products.

    the tools
    • Laptop
    • One domain
    • VPS
    • Notepad++
    • Mighty Content Locker
    • Luck

    the goal
    • $100/day by 11:59:59 PM on 1/31/14

    _______________


    january 1st
    Purchased domain from Namecheap and a level 2 VPS from KnownHost (more than I wanted/needed to pay for but I couldn't resist the 15% lifetime discount). I also did quite a bit of work preparing my first traffic method.
    stats: $0/day
    time remaining: 30 days

    january 2nd
    Applied for both Amazon's Associate program and AdWorkMedia. Fully designed landing page for my chosen Amazon product. I honestly think my conversions and earnings will be higher with CPA but who knows, right? Maybe I'll be surprised.
    I have a vague idea of what I want to do for my CPA landing pages, but it'll depend on which offers I end up choosing. The majority of my time tomorrow will be spent on this. May also look into some sort of content locking software, I don't exactly need a content locker but I do need something something that will offer me geotargeting + offer rotation. If anyone knows of any solutions for this please let me know.
    stats: $0/day
    time remaining: 29 days

    GOod luck with your journey mate.
    Are you going to get traffic from Google if yes then you should do keyword research of your niche.
    For content locking I will recommend CL pro would be great option.

    Thanks for your support everyone!

    Oh I know, but might as well set my goal high right? Go big or go home ;)

    No SEO/keyword research necessary for my method :) I will check CLP out, thanks. Also going to take a look at MCL. If neither of them fit my needs I may end up having to custom code something.

    And a quick update, I've been accepted to AWM less than 6 hours after applying! Time to begin my CPA landing page.

    Finished the design for my CPA landing page. I'm pretty pleased with how both of my landing pages turned out. Hoping they'll convert well.
    I also purchased Mighty Content Locker but haven't installed and set it up yet. Will do so in the morning, it shouldn't take too long.
    Last but not least, I installed Piwik to track my traffic stats.
    Just a little more work before I can start driving traffic. Hopefully everything will be set up and ready to go by Sunday and I can begin then.
    stats: $0/day
    time remaining: 28 days

    So I haven't posted an update in a couple days - over the weekend I got quite an interesting idea for a website, sort of reminiscent of a GPT website but with a big twist that I believe will make it much more marketable and desirable for users. I've been buckling down and working hard on it the past few days, if done right (big if) I'm quite confident that this site alone could take me to $100/day. While this is causing a setback for my other site, hopefully it'll be worth it. Will update this thread again when both of my sites are ready to launch, probably in a few days.
    stats: $0/day

    If you accomplish this that quickly (and sustain it), you must promise to teach me your ways.
