    Hello BHW and welcome to my journey thread!


    Why am I doing this?
    Because I'm a 17 year old Swedish boy who's tired of having no money and awful work ethics! I've been a BHW lurker (AKA BHW Bullshiter) for a long time and I've read a lot of tutorials/guides but I've never taken action. It's almost like I pat myself on the back for thinking about taking action in the future, I'm sure that some of you understand what I mean... Anyways, I'm going to take action today because today the first abstract barrier just burst, I received my first paycheck!

    In June I uploaded a video with a direct link to a CPA offer and then I boosted the video with likes, views, favorites and subscribers from U2bviews and Enhaceviews. after about 4 days I checked on the video and saw that It wasn't ranking well. I was immediately demotivated and after 2 more days, I stopped checking up on the video and AWM. But yesterday I noticed that I had received $38 from AWM, when I saw that I searched for my video and saw that it had was ranking on the first page!

    Receiving my first paycheck from AWM and seeing that my video made it to the 1st page without me even trying was a wake-up-call for me, If I can make $38 without even trying, I could make a lot more if I actually take action! So this thread is mainly for motivation and keeping myself organized, I get unorganized easily if I don't keep track of everything I do.


    My goal
    My main goal is probably to acquire excellent work ethics and to learn how to work "smart" instead of working "hard". My current work ethic is not really that good and neither is my workflow. Like a lot of other people I tend to postpone work and never actually finish what I start. (Unless It's homework from school, then I'll do it all the last night before the deadline) This HAS to stop, I don't want to end up paying the high cost of doing nothing. Now don't think that this is my only goal, I obviously am also motivated about getting money as well, it's just that I believe that money will come with time as long as I focus on working and taking action. If I'd have to make an income goal, It would probably be around $300 a day.

    Game plan
    My game plan ATM mainly has to do with CPA and Clickbank. Most of my methods will utilize Youtube and Social media, but during the weekend (31 Aug & 1 Sep) I did some brainstorming and came up with a pretty good health niche. If done correctly I think that this method will take me a long way. Here's a mind map to help you(and me, mainly me) understand this method in the health niche.

    Where will the content be: Youtube, Social media, Website/Blog
    What will I need: Domain, Host, Unique YT videos, Fan pages, Unique website design, Seo tools,
    How will I get traffic: Google Adwords, Social media, Youtube

    Sorry if my game plan doesn't make any sense I'm currently having a hard time writing my idea down. I'll make sure to write a more detailed game plan post as soon as I completely understand what I'm doing myself :p
    Thanks for reading my post and if you choose to follow my journey thank you even more, I'll definitely need some support! Anyways I need to get to work now!

    Ps. sorry if there are a lot of grammar mistakes in my post, I wrote this in a hurry!

    Quick update before I go to bed. Today I didn't really have time to do a lot, I had some physics homework... But I did pick a new niche and I found some really good keywords for this new niche. The method that I'll be using will still be the same. I want the "first-tier" income of this website to be from Clickbank or Amazone sales and "second-tier" income from CPA. I've made a more detailed mind map on my whiteboard but I'm not able to link stuff since I'm only a "Newbie". I'll probably buy a domain that's related to my niche tomorrow, as well as hosting.

    Tomorrow I get out of school earlier than today, so hopefully I get more IM done tomorrow

    I've decided to stop trying the method that I was talking about earlier... What I was trying to do was make a semi-authority fitness website with quality articles, back links, design, videos and etc. But I've realized that the BIG fitness forums completely dominate in that area, and because I'm only a noob I feel like trying to compete against them would be taking water over my head.

    I'll try to stick to more basic stuff, but still focus on quality over quantity. I feel as if I need a more concrete goal to get me started, so for this week my goal is to make 5 quality blogs/websites, videos and social media pages in 5 different (basic)niches.

    Feels bad to think about all of the hours I've wasted on niche/keywoard and SEO competition research today. Oh well, at least I've learned to use Market Samurai a lot better.

    Good look mate, you can do it! I'm trying to promote with clickbank too, only experience can make our transition from newbie to a 100$/day income.

    Today I feel a bit more productive and on track than I have previously have. I did some keyword/niche research for about 50 minutes. When I found my niche I immediately made a blogger page for the niche and wrote a script for a Youtube video that I'll be recording tomorrow. I'm using Blogger because I'm going to be making 5 new websites every week and I don't want to be spending up to 60 dollars every week.

    I just realized that I've been forgetting to update my journey with my earnings! So I'll start updating my earnings on a daily basis from now on.

    Day 1
    Earnings = $1.90
    Clicks: 9
    Leads: 2

    Day 2
    Earnings = $1.95
    Clicks: 3
    Leads: 2

    Day 3
    Earnings = $2.35
    Clicks: 6
    Leads: 2

    Nothing special at all... But I only have one video(ppd) up atm and it just moved up to the second page this hour.

    Stats
    Videos up: 1
    Blogs/Websites up:2

    Ps. What can I do to make this journey more fun to read? Feel free to come with suggestions! :]

    I'm not Vincent Garza from POG if that's what you thought. I just like the name "The Swole Nerd" because I'm swole and I'm also a nerd.

    Today I spent mostly on doing home work, but I did do some brainstorming at my friends house and I came up with 4 good niches that I'll try to get active this week. So I have a very busy weekend ahead, but I kinda look forward to it.

    As stated above I mostly did homework and niche brainstorming, but I also I did manage to finished my video for the blog that I created yesterday. After I finished editing the video I tried to upload it to Youtube and I got an error that said "The server has rejected the file"... The frustration that this error has given me today I am not able to express in words... I've been trying to fix it for about 2 hours now and nothing seems to work, maybe I'l try to use another computer in my house hold to upload the video.

    Anyways, here are my earnings for today

    Day 4
    Earnings = Big fat 0
    Clicks = 3
    Leads= 0

    Stats
    Videos up = 1 (Almost 2 :p)
    Blogs/Websites up = 2

    As you see I have not earned anything today but, to be fair my video is not on the first page yet so it's understandable!

    Hope that you enjoyed this post. If I have any followers, thank you for following me and for you support.

    I'm also 17 and lurking the forums thinking about all kinds of great ideas and how hard I'd work just to be successful in IM, even if the profits weren't a factor, I'd just like to be successful but I'm not taking any action. I really should there is just too many places to start and I can't pick one. Good luck!
