    - The Back Story:
    I am 19 years old and I live in a small third world country in SEA. Despite my join date,
    I knew about IM when I was still a 10th grader. I never got around to do it though because
    I was crippled with depression and self esteem issue. Furthermore, my parents are both
    white collar workers and they relentlessly forbid me from doing IM. They always talk down
    on me and treat everything I say as garbage. Well, time flies and before you know it,
    you are college studying for a degree in Finance and Banking that carries no intrinsic value whatsoever.

    However, it's summer now and this summer I am taking the matter into my own hand.
    This summer I am opening my own business to make money to go to Sydney or Melbourne
    and get a degree in either Accounting or Law (the stuff that actually matter). I am going to
    prove to my parents that I Can Make It on my own.

    - The Goal:
    + Having a functioning business (with office, license,...) by the August 26th 2013.
    + Focusing on creating complete sale funnel instead of creating perfect incomplete
    sale funnel parts.
    + Keeping my self healthy both physically and psychologically.
    + On my first $200 day I will donate to BHW.

    - The Plan:
    I will use meathead method and post on forum with a link back to my review site.
    All responses will be on point with the goal of helping the end user in mind and the product as
    recommended reading. I already had everything set up and made 38 posts.

    - What I have done so far:
    + I have set up my website and affiliate links.
    + I have made 38 posts on the forum.


    Any Tip, Trick and Advice is highly appreciated.

    Update:
    I am thinking of hiring forum posters to do the posting and pay for each links.
    There are some problems coming up on top of my head right now:
    - Hidden links (the freelancer use transparent pixel or smiley as anchor text) => no traffic
    - Dead links (dead backlinks)
    - Duplicate links ( freelancer send the link twice to get twice amount of money)

    I am thinking of using text mechanic dupe remover, then scrapebox backlink checker, then do manual check.
    Anyone with experience hiring freelancers like this.

    OMG, the competition in this section is just insane.
    I am already at the bottom of the front page.
    What does a guy have to do to get read in here?

    Anyway, Journal Log:
    I busted out a script to invite all eligible freelancer today.
    My inbox should be filled with proposal from freelancers first time tomorrow.
    I will report back how the job scanning goes tomorrow.
    Tonight I will work on the side fiverr project.

    You seem to have a decent plan, also depending on the competition you might want to invest in a bit of SEO, you are spending money already you may want to diversify a bit and see what happens. Maybe create a Youtube video also, but a press release so an and so forth.

    Yeah, I might do it but right now I am focusing on creating a complete sale funnel first.
    But I will definitely try out SEO in the future.

    Just keep the thread active and keep posting your progress! If you do that, I think the thread will become popular on it's own. Just don't give up.

    Good luck!

    $200 a day posting on forums with link to affiliate review? You will need 1000+ active forums and 100,000+ posts to even come close to this IMHO. But hey perhaps I am wrong as I have never tried that just seems like grunt work and not an actual business plan.

    If your gonna do it that way have all the traffic sent to a squeeze page first then redirect to the review.

    This way you can mail everyone that joins the list new products as the new products convert the best as most will have seen the
    old ones.

    6/20/2013 Update:
    I created a getresponse account and made an auto responder campaign.
    I was hoping to save this for later and just focus on manual forum posting for now.
    However, that seems improbable with the mass link deleting going on in the forum
    right now.

    I am going to hire the freelancer to do all the forum posting, and focus on converting
    visitors in the back end.

    Some stats: 25 out of 257 freelancers agree with the rate of $2 per live post.
    Damn! Elance freelancers are expensive.

    Do you guy think that paying for $4 per forum post is too much?

    Fun fact: I got 2 spanish spam messages after signing up to getresponse.
    Do you guy think that getresponse sold my email?

    Some Major update:
    The moderator of the forum went apeshit and decided to ban anyone who post a link.
    Looks like I have to look for different niche and different forum.

    Sup guys. Some updates:
    For the last few days I keep getting randomly blocked from my website. (you can read it on my other thread)
    The tech support couldn't figure out the problem.
    My freelancers couldn't get to work and it set my journey back.

    I finally found a solution today:
    - Create throwaway admin account with super admin account.
    - Log into wordpress site using web proxy site
    - When finished, forced password change with super admin account.
