    What's up everybody, I'm Zurlee and this is my first ever real attempt at making money online. Let me give you a little background on myself first:

    I'm 18 years old currently attending university for no reason at all. I have been interested in IM since I was a Freshman in high school. I tried all kinds of little things, but mainly little clickbank sites that I would startup and fail miserably. I was very hesitant at spending any money on the sites (being in high school I had very little) which is the main reason they didn't go anywhere. It was all a learning experience though, and it made me realize that I needed to take things seriously if I want to go anywhere with this.

    I've been a member of BHW for about 4-5 months now on my other account (Swurlej). I hate the username and I'm really ocd about stuff so I just changed over to this account today. I learned a TON over these past months. I read up on many journeys everyday, it almost consumes all of my free time. I feel like I have enough general knowledge to give this a really good go and hopefully see my first real profits from online marketing.

    Here's what I've been working on:


    I'm currently working with OGads and I have been for about 3 days now. I am running their content lockers on two blogger accounts in seperate niches that I am sending traffic to with niche related instagram accounts.

    Initial earnings: $1.15

    So $1.15 for the first three days, not bad for my first internet moneys ;)

    My plan for the next couple days:

    I came across a method that I think can work pretty well with the budget I have. I'm going to be running contests for cheap items in my niche. These items will cost 1 - 5 dollars tops. To enter the contest, the traffic needs to enter their information into a cpa offer.

    That's the basic idea of the method, I don't want to give my niches away right now (for obvious reasons) so I can't tell you the exact items I will be selling. Just know that they will be really cheap items that will earn me a good ROI with only a couple of opt-ins.

    Current stats for IG accounts:

    Account 1:

    Followers: 6298
    Following: 1694

    Account 2:

    Followers: 176
    Following: 460

    I've been doing the follow and unfollow method as well as posting good content 3 - 4 times a day. I bought 5,000 followers from a member here yesterday to make my first account look more legit. Good service they came through in a couple hours. I'd say about a thousand of those followers for the first account are real.

    I'm going to be buying shoutouts from bigger accounts in my niches once I get the contest sites set up so I can get good targeted traffic to my offers. IG will be the main traffic for this method.

    My Plan for the Near Future:

    If this method shows promising results, I will scale up. If it doesn't, I will not give up and try a different approach


    My Plan for the Far Future:


    Once I start seeing a good ROI from the first method, I will automate it and reinvest my profits into bigger and better things. I'm going to start investing some money in Bing ads. From my research they seem like a pretty good traffic source, and I have some ways of getting their clicks for the cheap. I signed up with them about a month ago for the free $50 coupon but I never got one from them. I'll send them an email, maybe they'll give me one, who knows.

    I'll be sending the ads to various landing pages with CPA offers and opt-ins to my email lists so I can market to them down the road. This phase is far down the line, I will need a lot of startup money, especially if I am going to need to buy a VPS or a VPN which to my understanding I will need to.

    This is all a couple months down the line, but I'm determined to get there.

    I will also be updating everything from this journey on a blog that I started today. It's extra motivation for me, plus I think it'll be really beneficial for me now and in the future. I don't think I will be able to link to it because I don't have a paid membership here so I'll just drop it for now, I'll release the name whenever I'm successful enough to become a paid member. :cool:

    I guess that's all for now. Please feel free to PM me about absolutely anything. I am in this thing for the long haul and I mean it. I want to make some friends and meet some potential JV's. I'll update you guys tomorrow on the progress.

    Whatsup guys! I'm back today with some progress and some opt-ins :cool:

    I just want to say thank you to everybody who commented on the post yesterday. You may not think much of it, but it means a lot seeing support as a newbie, especially from some Senior VIP guys. It inspired me to keep going and I got a whole bunch of things set into action.

    Ok, so here's what has happened since my last update:

    First, I signed up for CPA Grip and got accepted. I feel that I will definitely want to work with them in the future because I see that it is a lot of peoples favorite network. So I got that taken care of and put aside for another day.

    Next, I made landing pages for my giveaways on blogger. I also added a "buy now" button through paypal just incase they want to buy the product. It will be awesome to get some sales from this because I will be making about $10 dollars per sale. I made IG feed ads that point people to the link in my bio that leads to the landing page. I posted them last night for the whole night, took them down in the morning, and then I put them back up again for a couple hours in the middle of the day today. here are my results:

    Day 2 CPA Earnings:

    Account 1: $.35

    Account 2: $.65

    Total for the day: $1.00
    Total for the Journey: $2.15

    Oooooooh we're making the big bucks now baby ;)

    It is pretty cool seeing some money come in though, especially for the first time. As you can see, my second account is the one with less followers and its gotten me more opt-ins than my first account. This looks like it could be a very promising niche for this method.

    I reached out to an account with 119k followers with about 1,500 average likes per post in my first accounts niche to see what they were asking for promo. They got back to me earlier today and it looks like it is going to cost me $10 dollars for a permanent post on their account.

    To me, this seems like a steal. This traffic will be sent to my Instagram account which will grow my following, I will send the traffic straight from there to my CPA offer so I can make some of the money back that I spent on traffic, then they enter their name and email for the giveaway which I will put into an auto-responder that will market niche related products to them, or they buy the product and I make 100% ROI from one sale. I'm getting a lot of value for my ten dollars here!!

    I will probably buy the shout out on Friday or Saturday, I'm going to email around a little bit more to see If I can get a better deal.

    I am debating on whether or not I should buy some fake followers for the second account to make it look more legitimate or not. I don't know if I should spend money on a shout out for that account if the traffic is not going to take me seriously because I only have a couple hundred followers. I want to get moving on this niche quickly though because so far it has showed the most promise.

    Here are my Instagram Account Stats:

    Account 1:

    Followers: 6353 (+55)
    Following: 1900 (+206)

    Account 2:

    Followers: 284 (+108)
    Following: 645 (+185)

    I stopped following and unfollowing for today, I kinda got lazy, and its really not going to make a difference when I buy shout outs in the near future.

    Game Plan for the Next Couple Days:

    I'm going to buy a shout out for both of my accounts. I think that my second account really has some promise so I'm going to switch my focus more towards making engaging content for that niche. I should get a good ROI on this instagram traffic, and if I do, I'm going straight into scale mode and scaling the hell out of this method.

    I'm very excited to see what the future holds, especially after seeing a couple opt-ins from barely any traffic. PM me about anything or leave your opinion below. I'd love to hear from you guys. That's all for today, Ill update you guys tomorrow!

    What's up everybody i'm back!

    i know its been a long time coming, but im back and I made a HUGE move.
    I bought a website making $400 per month for $800

    I know seems like a risky move but I just figured I'd buy an asset so I have a good stream of income to keep this business going.

    However, I need some help. I use digitalocean as my hosting provider and they are very technical. I just got the files today, a .zip wordpress file and an sql file.

    Can anybody help me out installing them on my server? I have Putty installed already I just dont know the right commands to use so that I can get the files up onto my server. If anybody is good with SSH and knows how to do this I could really use your help.

    Sorry for being gone for so long, I figured I'd switch my focus to school because I'm paying so damn much for it, but schools over now, and I'm back baby :cool:

    But seriously though, if anyone knows how to SSH files onto a server please shoot me a pm, i could really use the help. Daily updates will be back when I get this site up and running.

    ^^ Sounds to me like someone just hosed you for $800.

    Good job on them!

    You must be smoking crack if you think someone is going to sell a website making $4800/year with possibly more potential for $800.

    You got ripped....and you dont even know how to install it on your server yourself......Don't good decisions bro.

    I'd suggest starting with cpanel hosting. You probably have no control panel setup to make it easy so either pay someone or google it.
    By the way, a site making $400 a month will NOT be sold for $800. Now if you had some crack addict that needs money NOW they may do that, but other than that they at least go for 10x if history is short, if longer than up to 20x+

    yeah kinda figured i was getting ripped :(

    its whatever though, I have a good job ill get the money back soon, all about trial and error im optimistic

    I saw the paypal though and it looked legit, and I already found a blackhat way that I can get my money back within two months with about 45 minutes of work a day.

    still though if anyone can help me out I can just still see if it works or not, if it doesnt then i guess i took a big L, wont stop me tho
