    Hey BHW!

    I am looking at buying some new gear for my IM'ing. So I wanted to know what others setups are and how you use them. (I'm not looking for your secrets, I just wanted to know what gets you into your IM mode.)

    Basically, I was thinking about setting up an IM cave in my home (basement cold storage room) where it's all motivation and quiet where I can just get stuff done without any distractions. I currently work in an office with other people there (I'm also a Realtor) and it gets quite annoying sometimes. I need to get where it's quite so I can't be bothered by others when I'm in the zone.

    Also, what about your system specs and programs you run?

    I currently have 2.5 computers:

    Acer Laptop with i5 Processor and 4GB of ram. ($700)
    Asus Desktop with i5 Processor and 8GB ram ($560) with a 24' $(150) montior.
    VPS through XSS servers for 24/7 blackhat spammin.

    Tools/Software:

    Scrapebox
    AMR
    TBS
    VenomSEO
    Get Article Pro
    SEO Power Suite
    Market Samurai
    Traffic Travis
    Screaming Frog SEO Spider
    UAW

    Total Websites:

    One Money Site
    30 or so Wordpress Blogs

    Niche:
    Real Estate/Lead Generation

    My daily routine:

    I always start the day by checking programs and setting them up to run for the day. I then start writing content. I write all my own content so this is the majority of my day either writing or spinning. I can usually write 5-7 really good articles and spin them well enough to pass Copyscape, yet be readable by a human. Once content is done for the day (enough to post on at least 4 web properties and enough to be spun for my tools) I then move onto keyword mining. I like to check keywords everyday and check out my competition. I have a major competitor I have to deal with who is very good at SEO. He is always changing his name online so I have to be on my toes or he can sneak up on me and take a #1 spot!

    Throughout the day I am always checking on my leads and making sure the Realtors I refer them to are following up correctly. I make sure all my personal leads are emailed and I am up to date on my phone calls.

    This is what I do but I can always improve and there are always ways to make life easier. I need to get into social media more, I haven't really figured out what to do on that aspect. Any tips for that would be much appreciate. If you read all this, thanks and I hope it helps you in someway!
