    I am a relatively new member here and I think it is time for me to start making money. I am no expert in IM so this will be a good learning experience. My method involves all White Hat. I will not be purchasing any traffic, pins, or anything. Below is a little blueprint:

    From start:

    - I have already purchased a domain
    - I am creating the website from scratch and I'm relatively close to completion (no CMS software)
    - I am already accepted into 2 affiliate programs

    To Do:

    - Finish the website
    - Apply to some more affiliate programs, about 5-12 more

    Promotion:

    I will be creating 1 Pinterest account only, with the name of the website as username. This account will be used to advertise all of the items I am affiliating. I won't be following users, only they will follow me.

    Advertising with long-tail keywords through Google AdWords.

    My SEO will be maximized: alternate image text, canonical URLs, heading tags, anchor text, etc.

    You will need at least twitter and fanpage + fans and followers to complete the mission. Or at least some backlinks blast to the pinterest images/boards which is out of your rules. So in my option this pinterest account will be used only to show google your site have social activity. Good luck with adwords - longtail+small CPC = success.

    A copious amount of affiliate programs, aimed at clothing. My website aggregates all of the clothing into a big image wall, like Pinterest.

    Day 3:

    I woke up late and went out with friends at night. I didn't really accomplish much. I added 100 more products and now I am receiving random visitors without advertising. I still have no leads.

    Today I plan on creating my own small analytics engine for the website so I can view what everyone is doing.

    Money Spent so far: $52.00
    Money Earned so far: ​$0.00

    Google Analytics. There are two kinds of IMs. The ones that stay away from google products and the ones that earn money. No I am just kidding, but in my opinion, GA is great and I register every page with Google Webmaster Tools too. I am totally open, nothing to hide, as I think that gives you a trust and thus a ranking bonus. Sure for blackhat stuff it is not a good idea, but I think the future and the way to a stable income is high quality pages and white hat, then you don't have to fear el'G.

    I do use Google Analytics but I want to create my own analytics to help find the most popular products and stuff like that.
