    The force must come from me. That's what I understood. Maybe I was trying to get some motivation by some guru, some tips. I don't know. Anyway, even if I'm here since years, today I read an article in the Make Money category that makes me open my eyes.. So, no stupidity, just work hard.

    Sorry for my english, I'm from Italy. I'm trying to getting better writing on internation forums like this one. One of my favourite, btw.

    1st, I started a blog, on a free host, 2nd level domain, about a not very saturated niche in my country. The first thing I realize is that the only way I can spred it is social networking: my keyword is an english word, but in the market is not very clicked on Google, so I can just target people who are into it. The translation of that word in my language is very general and in terms of searching I have to compete with all kind of international brand. On this blog I provide quality articles about the topic and other articles about the release on new products, with images and cost. I plan to transform it in an affiliate site, when I will have more traffic. I already have AdSense on it and the free host offer a monetize method, by clicking their banners.

    2nd, I launched my first Fiverr, finally. I want to valorize my skills in graphic and social media. I plan to buy some gig exchange to promote myself (I will reference some article I read on here), and start make some work to show on my portfolio site (see 3rd)

    3rd, I create my portfolio site, with my graphic jobs done. I plan to make a new logo for it and give an insighful description to all my works.

    4th, I have an Instagram profile with more than 500 followers. I actually found a method to get there in less then a week, manually, organic traffic. I plan to get this one to 1000 and start making promoting and rep to some brand.

    TO-DO:

    Niche blog
    - 1 article per day, 7 a week (6 release article, 1 quality article)
    - 100 fans in FB Page

    Personal site
    - Description personal works
    - New logo

    Fiverr
    - Set all gigs

    Instagram
    - 1000 followers


    I have this 4 startups. I don't know how I'm going to get real money from them. I accept all kind of advice/support/critic. Please. I want this to be my job as this world is my world. Now I'm really focused on succeed.
    I'm looking forward to something more valuable to start and to realize.
    Thanks.

    Thank you, guys. I realized that I have to start to believe in what I can do. If that's my way I have to put everything on it. Appreciate your support!

    DAY 1 UPDATE

    I kept reading Jouneys and method, maybe with a different attitudine, I don't know, and I found out a method that could spread my niche blog better then the simple FB page. I will talk about it in tomorrow's post.

    I set up all the gigs in Fiverr, wrote my daily article on the niche blog and started to think about the logo for my portfolio. Also, I found a guy who was promoting his service and giving bounch of followers on IG for free.

    June, 14th
    - 1 article [1/1]
    - Set all gigs [3/3]

    - 100 fans in FB Page [85/100]; Niche blog
    - Descriptions personal works; Personal site
    - New logo; Personal site
    - 1000 follower [753/1000]; IG

    Can't wait to talk to you guys about the new implementation for the Niche blog, that actually only has a dead FB page with no engagement. I'm not showing it today just because I'm setting it up.

    Keep support! Thanks

    Thank your for support!

    Very high competition in almost every field. I put on it my basic 3 skills, but I'm thinkin about something new. My journey on it should give me good inspiration about starting some original gig. Thank your for supporting!

    DAY 2

    Hello BHW, let's start a new day.

    Yesterday I told you guys about a new method I was going to try in the niche blog to get more traffic. I read an article (blackhat-seo/making-money/407343-guide-make-money-pinterest-noob-friendly-ready-twists.html) that inspired me a lot, because I think that Pinterest have a very high potential with my niche.

    So, I started to save some of the most pinned images, like 20, about my niche (medium saturated, I would say) and then I uploaded them on my blog media and pinned them on my Pinterest account, redirecting to my blog.
    Since now, the engagement was not that good: 1 follow and a couple of pin. That's better than nothing.

    After that, I decided to open a Twitter profile for the niche blog. Retwitted couple of things, liked some other, followed 43 niche-related profiles, then turned it off. Since now, I got 4 follower. Ok!

    But when I opened my admin panel and looked to the stats I was very pleased: Saturday I had like 2 UVs, yesterday I got 47!
    WOW.
    19 impressions and 2 clic on AdSense and 0,08$!!
    Don't laugh but I'm happy.

    Today, after my writing routine I will keep pinning stuff from my niche blog media and add that to my daily modus operandi. Got also some free shoutout. Gipsy sheet, but I'm starting from 0, so it's ok for now. I'm not working on the personal site, even if I keep listing it because I'm not able to use my laptop since tomorrow, but I will keep it in mind.

    June, 15th
    - 100 fans in FB Page [85/100]; Niche blog
    - 50 followers Twitter [4/50]; +4 Niche blog
    - Descriptions personal works [0/16]; Personal site
    - 1000 follower [753/1000]; +9 IG
    - $ [0/0,08]; +0,08$

    T-D T (To-Do Today)
    - 1 article; Niche blog
    - 20 pins; Niche blog
    - 10 retweet; Niche blog

    I'm also thinking about a product to be locked with some CPAs. I have a good product, but I have to reorganize it. Nobody has it, as it's a "collection" of years of researches. How could I use it? Just trying to sell it with a landing page, a domain and SEO? I have no money at all, but I think that this is really a good product to be sold. Tell me your impressions and if anybody with some knowledges is interessed in being part of it, PM me.

    Keep supporting!

    DAY 2 UPDATE

    I just pinned all the images and, as a curiosity, I made a little research to understand how much Pinterest and Twitter, my new allied, would really help me.
    What I discovered is not very good: here, in my country 76% of global traffic comes from Facebook, against an international media of 65%. Pinterest and Twitter, globally, have the 15% and 13% of traffic but, here, has the 2,3% and 6%! I found out that Tumblr, on the contrary, has a global 9% that here become a 13%!!! Wow! What do you guy think about using that same strategy but thit Tumblr? Should give it a try! Updates come later!

    DAY 2 UPDATE #2

    Working mainly on the niche blog, these days. I made all my daily routine, even with Pinterest and Twitter, but I didn't have time to try something new. I sign up on Tumblr, my actual experiment, but I had some trouble with the WP plugin that sync it with Tumblr. I'll try to set it up and start posting later on.

    Tomorrow I will organize the infoproduct I want to sell and write down the main features. I'm going to design the graphic and the landing page, so I want to find the best resources to do so: looking to some good ones, etc..
    I don't know how it is going to be, but at least it will be REAL quality stuff.. Even a CPA would be ok, but maybe I can ask more from it. Have you got some suggestions?

    DAY 3

    Today was kinda lazy day.

    I put some more effort on Fiverr gigs, making 1 video (that, actually, with APr takes me a lot of time) over the 3 gigs. Tomorrow I'll make another one.

    Personal site is still at the beginning point, but that's ok, for now.

    Niche blog, with Pinterest and Twitter (almost useless, in my country. I can tell), yesterday had 27 UVs. Half less than Sunday, but still looks good. Going to keep Pinning images from the blog to Pinterest wall. No engagement at all, since 2 day. But let's see. No article, today. Plan to write down 2 tomorrow.

    Instagram is doing ok, the likes are less than the beginning, but I can see far more followers everyday. 1000s are at the door.

    I'm getting pretty curious about the CPA, and I keep thinkin about how I could use offers and spread them.

    I want to test this. I need few things:
    - 2 email address (gmail and 1 local)
    - 2 new FB profiles (I get from the Download section couple of archive with albums of hot girls, perfect for me)
    - start adding friends, with private friend list, only WOMEN. MEN are coming by themselves.

    I have a few questions for you guys, hoping I can make out here without open a new topic.
    - Do free hosting company use to ban who is involved in CPA?
    - Lockin a content, whick is not what was supposed to be, is illegal?

    Thanks.

    Today I realized that manage multiple projects and multiple sources can be hard for a noob.

    DAY 4

    - Got 2 new email
    - Got 1 new FB profile; add some photos and some links to it; add some people;

    I believe that since I have no money and I have to manage all the projects by myself, I have to stay focused on what I have. Trying is ok, but 1 acc per time, to have more control on what happen and what I'm doing.

    Instagram
    is doing ok. Almost 800 follower and engagemnt is raising too: 40+ likes per photo in last 4 photo. I think that this is not that good, but I can see the improving.

    Niche blog has 26 UV yesterday, +5 than Monday. No clicks on AdSense.

    Fiverr gigs has 1 visit each. One of them (who hadn't a good cover image yet) had 16 impressions. I think that this means that it's a good niche, so maybe I have to add some more gigs like that one.

    Personal site is still and, since I have no time to get more graphic work, for now I will keep it there where it is. Fiverr could give me the chance to add more work on my portfolio. Since I can't automate most of the tasks I have to sacrifice something. Personal site would take me lot of time on planning and designing.

    I have to make a real plan. I'm just throwing fuel on fire, but without knowing where I'm going.

    #1 NICHE BLOG
    Keep posting articles, but starting to use a fresh writing style to target the niche I want, more personal and engaging.
    Share articles on Tumblr, Pinterest and Facebook with the "official pages".
    Share related blogs articles.
    Boost UVs and AdSense conversions.

    #2 FIVERR
    Keep improving old gigs with graphics and videos.
    Add 1/2 more gigs on the niche that looked good.
    Join some Fiverr group for the future when I'll have to buy some gigs.

    #3 INSTAGRAM
    Keep the system Follow, Like, Like, Like, Comment on people that looks real and are really niche related.
    Make free shoutout to people that has good feed and doesn't follow me yet, to motivate them to add and get some more reputation.
    People on that niche are really like-oriented
    . I should keep that in mind in the future.

    #5 FB
    Keep adding people and post things to make it seems real to FB staff and folks.
    Start thinkin about what kind of business getting into. Options are: Affiliate, CPA and ClickBank. (I said options to get back to the first sentence of this post.) I need some research on what can sell and drive traffic. Have a couple of ideas.
