    Hey guys,

    I know, the title may sound a little bit too dramatic, but this is 2017.... so CLICKBAIT is everywhere :p
    So, I created this thread to motivate myself (and you of course too) to not give up in the online marketing business. After months on BHW now I want to start getting serious. This thread is not a specific Instagram or whatever journey, it is rather a journey where I will try different stuff and see how it works ;)

    A little bit about myself: I'm currently 19, studying computer science at a university in Germany. As I have some free time left, I wanted to use it efficiently.

    What I've done so far: In January I started my own SMM website (not like these panels on the marketplace, but really designed for "normal" customers). Since then I was quite positive surprised, I make every month about 700-1000€ profit. Of course this motivated me, so I started spending money on SEO for my webshop (which is hard, there is a lot of competition, even in my own country...).

    Well... that was my first project, which is still going on and takes me nearly no time at all. So I started another on, also in January: Growing Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest accounts with MASSPLANNER...which is dead now, I really was right before scaling up to about 70 accounts and monetize them :(

    Now I will wait some days and see how the situation goes for the other bot providers. Maybe I go with Follow Liker, who knows.

    BTW: I also have other projects too in my crazy mind, some of them have to do with private Youtube channel, and other ones with Amazon, BUT I think this is enough for today. I don't know where this journey takes me and whether it will be interesting and helpful for you or not. So, yeah... Basically that's it for now, I will try to give you guys updates on my projects and ideas regularly :)

    First UPDATE:

    SMM Site: So finally, after weeks of research and spending quite a good amount in SEO packages, my site ranks now in the top 100 in Google for a specific keyword I wanted (which is quite in high competition IMHO). I know, top 100 is not that hard to achieve, but it is the first step to page 1 ;) Still trying to optimize that, because I think the hundreds of € in SEO budget is worth it. Today earned 78€. Last month 1100€.

    Instagram journey: I still can use Massplanner, as my licence is still running. So I tried today to add 10 more Insta accounts with good proxies and sim cards -> All of them got banned -_- I don't know how this will go on...

    Then there's also my third project with my private Youtube channel. I have big plans with that, but this will take a few weeks. I have a lot to do for university the next days. That's it for now :)
    Thanks guys :)

    Wish you all the best for your journey.

    Which template do you use for the SMM site and what payment options?

    Social Media Marketing... but "send me money" describes it good too.

    I use a hoster in my country, who offers various shop designs. Payments with PayPal.
    thanks :)

    Good luck neighbour :) tbh if your smm site is earning that kind of revenue you would be better of spending that money in a custom, built for you only IG bot ;).

    Anyway, Care to link your site in a pm? Interested to see how it looks compared to the (mostly crappy) panel sites

    Hey buddy,

    It's nice that you have a lot of projects that you wanna start, but i suggest you pick 1 (or 2 at most) and start working on those instead of starting multiple projects (like 3-5) at once. That is going to burn you out so much in no time and you will get confused one day... Trust me, i have been there lol. So pick yourself the best and keep on trying. For the SMM, i hate your German competitors. The prices are just ridiculous.

    Good luck!

    How does a SSM site work. Never seen a site like that before. What services do you offer there?

    Small update: Had been kinda busy with university stuff so I couldn't optimize my SMM website (I want to add some new services). The cool thing is that I got a free review copy from a new marketplace thread! 30 days SEO (with on page optimization) which is worth 450$ (again, I got it free!). Let's see how this will effect my rankings, my site is still not ranking in the top 100 for my wanted keywords...
    Earned about 200 € last week.

    About my social bots:

    Created 20 new Instagram accounts (and 10 Twitter accs / 10 pinterest accs) and let them slowly warm up right now. I hope they will grow in the future ;) Maybe I also start some tumblr accounts in the future, I don't know


    thanks :)

    check out my signature :) MP is still working fine by the way

    Quick UPDATE after more than 4 months:

    So basically I gave up on using Instagram to make money, Ogads etc didn't work for me.... I still have Massplanner and about 50 IG and Twitter accounts. But instead of using them for CPA, I use them to promote my private "hobby" YouTube channel a bit.

    About my journey with the "premium" Social Media Marketing site there is some HUGE news:

    I worked hard for 4 months now to redesign the site completely. So I use Woocommerce & Wordpress now, bought a premium theme & WPML for multilingual use. It took a lot of time thinking about the perfect layout, design etc. I spent hundreds of $$$ customizing the site with custom configurators and some very cool PHP stuff. (I want a PERFECT user experience). About On site SEO: Additionally I hired writers, so now I have about 80k words of unique content on the site now targeting 40 main keywords.

    I think I created a really awesome user experience! Cost of the whole development with plugins, content and translations: About 2k$ (Earnings of the "old" version of the site, which was very.... eh shitty)

    About sales:
    The site went live last week, and in this 1 week I made already a bit more than 1k€ (Probably mostly from returning clients, but still a nice amount^^)

    Future plans:
    Keep in mind that I planned this site as a long term business, it's a real registrated company. The nice thing is that the company is financing it's growth by itself. So basically I use most part of the profit to develop the site even further. Now, because the site itself is almost completely finished now, I will invest my earnings in off page SEO. That means real guest posts on REAL traffic sites / blogs / news sites etc. I'm a bit scared when it comes to PBNs (The wolf network seems fine, but idk to be honest) and stuff, because in no way I want to risk my site.

    So that's my update after 4 months of hard work (I had almost no free time the last months, because of so many projects, this site, going to university etc... but it was worth it)

    By the way I already have ideas for 2 new projects (probably starting next year), so stay tuned! :D (And thanks for reading everything here)

    I'm glad you posted recently as it has enabled me to see this journey. Congratulations with your successful SMM site! May I ask where I can learn more about these SMM's sites? They sound interesting.

    Another update after 2 more months: SMM site going really well after investing about 2k$ in HQ SEO in October. While waiting for another rise in SERPs the site is actually finished after months of work now.

    Profit in November: 3.000 €
    Work: About half an hour daily, just a bit of maintenance on the site, processing orders and customer support.
    As you can think I'm quite happy about that^^

    As I have some free time from university now, I'm currently creating my next projects. Right now that means building a new online news magazine around tech / gaming. Site is already online. (not in English)
    Cost:
    Building the site: 100$ and 2 weeks of work.
    Monthly: about 200€ for my writers to write and publish articles.
    Estimated earning in the first 6 months: 0€

    Will try to get the main traffic trough SEO, monetization probably trough AdSense and Amazon affiliate stuff. If you have ideas, you can let me know ;)

    Projects I'm planning currently for 2018:
    A similar site to shoutcart, targeting my country & a web design agency based on outsourcing.

    Thanks, check out the panels on the marketplace and use them for reselling. That's the magic.

    Small update:
    As bitcoin and stuff is exploding currently, I registered on Coinbase and bought 1 litecoin just4fun (My first crypto investment ever) :D Now, a few days later, it already went up again by 35$. I'm still afraid of investing bigger amounts though...
