    Hey there!

    Today i'm starting a small (or big if it works out) whitehat PPD journey. I came up with a niche that i think should work, its whitehat (User gets what he wants after the survey, and it's legal (no warez or something)) - I'm going to say this right here to not raise any big hopes to those who might also go with whitehat niches: I'm taking a total shot in the dark here! On that niche, on that method on purely everything! I have no freaking clue if it will work or not, or how good it works. There of course IS a demand of the stuff I lock - the question is, will people really do an offer to get it? I don't know. I'm getting pretty bored by researching, so i'm just going to do it and see what comes out.

    Promotion will be mostly through Facebook - at least at the beginning. I want this to go fast and i'm not here to work on the site for 1 or 2 months without results. If i don't drive in decent results within a week, i'll drop it. If i see potential, i go further and invest more time into it.

    What do i have and what am i going to do?

    1. I registered a domain today, pointing to my host already.
    2. Obviously i have a niche too. As said it's whitehat. I just want to believe whitehat works out better long-term than blackhat niches. (Even if i made hella good money with BH)
    3. I could go the easy way and slap a WP + theme on it. However, i'm in the progress of learning Laravel PHP framework since a few weeks, and as this site does not require THAT much stuff, i'm just going to build it in Laravel 5. This way, even if the site fails, i gained some experience in this PHP framework on a live Application - so it will not be a total waste of time.

    Why PPD and not CPA? I'm quite comfortable with PPD, and i'm going to start with it. I might switch to CPA if things work out.

    So obviously i'm going to keep you updated. Today's earnings: $0 (big surprise ;) )

    If you are reading this and have tips on how to get a nice junk of initial traffic from facebook, feel free to share it here or PM me it. Would be much appreciated!

    Oh, that was some time ago. But yeah, i was a top earner quite some time there but with completely BH niches. (I also once was a mod there; just in case someone is going to complain again)

    Would you do a survey to get what you offer? If yes, it's a great niche, if no...maybe not so great. :)

    Eh. I made thousands of $ with stuff i would never ever do a survey for ;)

    Would you do a survey for a gamecrack? Probably not, still one hell of a good niche.

    You might be the first person I've seen use whitehat niches with PPD, and don't mean that as a negative remark!

    I wish you luck with your journey!

    This is also a reason why i do it. I don't think PPD has to be shady, and i also think that there is more money in whitehat niches.

    Thanks!

    short update: building the site took longer than expected. in fact, it's not completely done yet. still have to do some layout tweaks and some debugging. also need to fill it with some content. however, today is sunday and i'm not working on sunday (GF time) so i'll finish the site and start promoting tomorrow.

    One thing I cannot understand.
    If this is White hat then offer them for free.
    Why PPD?
