I would like to personally that you the reader for taking interested in my journey; it's going to be a long one so make sure to subscribe. If you don't know me I am TheFreshPrince, and you can read more about me in the link below: TheFreshPrince's Re-Introduction Thread Some of you are wondering why I have decided to take two years to complete this journey and there are multiple answers: 1) I am a sophomore in college. I'm not the busiest kid on campus; however, I do like to enjoy myself, so even though I will be slaving away at these projects I understand the importance of "ME" time. 2) Let's be realistic, starting from scratch and making 100k is hard work. I'm not expecting overnight profits, so I have given myself a pretty decent cushion of time. 3) It I finish early, I can use the remaining time to push the limits and see what I can make at the end of two years; not to mention I would feel like a BAWS. Projects: Lifestyle Business For years I have been planing to start a clothing company, and now that I am living in Boston I finally can...but with a twist. I decided that the best approach would be to build a HUGE lifestyle account on Instagram. In conjunction with that, I will build a lifestyle/entertainment blog that I would drive traffic to via Instagram. After a month, or three, I would launch the clothing brand online and if everything goes right it'll be a huge success. FB Ads/Media Buying/CPA I recently got accepted into a CPA network and the owner has agreed to mentor me. I was given access to some locked offers and I am in the process of setting up my landing pages. This whole concept is very new to me; my mentors approach is for him to tell me what to do and for me to do it until I get it right. I know that once you understand the basics, FB Ads+CPA could be extremely profitable. MORE ABOUT INDIVIDUAL PROJECTS BELOW Lifestyle Business IG ACCOUNT: 154 FOLLOWERS Growing this account has been EXTREMELY SLOW. I don't have it in my budget to grab a copy of FollowLiker at the moment, but I will when I can. Another point I should make is that I want all my followers to be interested in what my business is all about; I am not just following randoms at this point. Website: I am in the process of setting up the website. Before I look into the looks of my website, I want to have writers in place, so when I decide to make the site public, there will be QUALITY content waiting for my visitors. Company: I need to register as an LLC in MA; I plan to do this within the next 30 days. Secondly, I have done the math and to fund the whole clothing/marketing/website redesign I have planned, I will need around $50,000. I have begun the process of writing a business plan I can show to potential investors. FB Ads/Media Buying/CPA CPA Network: I managed to get into CrakRevenue, BlackFox.io, AdscendMedia, Peerfly, and Maxbounty. I have been apart of the last three for YEARS, and I only made $4 when someone I knew on xbox live filled it out for me. Offer: I have a dating offer that pays about $7/Free Signup and I can target a few popular countries. It looks good so lets hope it works out. Landing Pages: I've learned the whole point of this CPA and MediaBuying thing is "Data Collection," once you master that, you are ten steps ahead of the game. For my offer I am targeting Males that are 30+ years old. So to start collecting Data and Testing I am making 20 different landers. All are the exact same thing but they go to different domains, for example: "dating domain.com/30yo","dating domain.com/31yo",...,"dating domain.com/50plus" By doing this I hope to learn more about who is clicking my ads and gain valuable data.
