    Hello everyone,

    I have been studying the theory of IM for the last 6 months.
    I have learn a lot in theory, now is time to get into practice.

    Destination is still unknown but I am sure I will enjoy the ride.

    The most important I have learned about IM (in theory) after spending countless hours daily reading IM forums posts and other IM blogs is that you have to treat IM like a business if you want to succeed.

    So like every business you have to invest.
    Today I have made my first investment for the foundations of this business.


    1. I got hosting (10 IPs) paid for 6 months
    2. Got some tools GSA SER, scrapebox, Captcha Breaker
    3. Subscriped to Intexification
    4. WAC
    5. A VPS
    6. Keyword researcher
    7. 10 private proxies
    8. A free version of keyword travis
    9. I also plan to buy 5-10 expired domain with PR in the next few days

    I thing I am close to -$500
    Some people will think I am crazy spending all that money upfront but I have my own way of thinking and doing things.

    I will start with keyword research and try to make my first revenue with CPA/SEO (don't want to get into video, it saturates very fast, a lot of competition and very high maintenance project).
    Also I will not go after cracks, cheats serial numbers and software for the same reasons, allow me to keep the niche private for now.

    I will try to document everything I will be doing and
    update this thread every time I am completing a step or have a question.

    I will positively accept all criticism, advises and questions.

    Thank You

    Good luck! I can't believe you've studied for 6 months and retained all of the information to this day, and didn't have the urge to just dive in and start earning. I subscribed to the thread, seems like it'll be an interesting journey.

    I assume you're going to be doing all of the work yourself instead of outsourcing, that should be something you document.

    I might go ahead and follow along and start using your techniques myself if it seems promising. I haven't been trying to make anything online lately. lol Just a lot of coding.

    All the best, tAG.

    Day 1

    I did a lot of keyword research today. This new interface on Google keyword tool made me dizzy.
    I finalize what my niche will be and I have registered a generic domain. Waiting for the hosting company to assign it to an IP.

    I started with a 7k keyword list and filter it down to 326, I am evaluating the competition right now.

    Today I will try to look for some expired/aged domains with PR to buy.


    Question 1: Which CPA networks you think I should apply for?
    Question 2: What should I use as a link locker? (free/paid)

    Invest:$11
    Revenue: $0
    Total: -$511

    I am using PeerFly and very happy about that.
    You can use AdWorkMedia to lock links.

    OP, I'm not sure why you are buying all that. Do you have a specific plan?

    I would like to treat this as a business.
    I am trying to collect everything that I have been advised can give you the advantage in SEO.

    To be honest is a gamble, I might succeed I may not.(all the info i have so far is just theory)
    This is a journey to knowledge, trial and error and eventually success.

    I know the tools alone cannot get me there but it makes me more confident that i am on hold of the correct weapons
    while walking into the battlefield.

    Any advice on a plan is very welcome.

    Thank You
