This post is part rant and part self-motivation. Let me begin by stating that I am not happy working a part-time job and going to school simultaneously, I would rather set-up a semi-automated income stream for me to cash in on (as long as it can match or beat my pathetic $80/week).
I have had success with IM before, more specifically CPA and will rectify this, giving it a lot more effort then I first did. I will be writing out goals which include MATCHING and then SMASHING my current income, being able to buy my car in March 2011 (when I turn 18) and finally creating a profitable and diverse income stream/s that will generate me enough money to live off in the future.
So how exactly am I going to achieve my goals?
To keep things simple and stick with what I know has worked for me in the past I will focus my efforts on article marketing > CPA. Conducting proper keyword research is detrimental to my success with article marketing. Focusing on writing compelling articles and including an enticing bio box will be the other factors I will be focusing on. Two articles per day should suffice for now and then BL'ing to those articles the next day.
Currently I have $1.88 in my Paypal account, I don't intend on small things like this to stop me. Submitting a few articles to associated content should generate enough money for me to buy a domain and obtain that 1c hosting from Hostgator or GoDaddy (it was one of them ).
Based on opinions I have read on here, the WF, I have concluded that I will be re-directing straight to my offer from my domain for the time being, focusing on one vertical to see if it will convert well enough. Once this has proven to be a reliable market and my keyword research has paid off then I will be buying and setting up an auto-responder and re-direct my traffic to a squeeze page instead to focus on building relationships and then generate leads.
This is only the tip of the iceberg for me, it is a sunny winter's day here in Melbourne, Australia (it's strange I know) on a lazy Sunday. It is never too early (or late) to dream big and achieve big!
Let me know what you guys think! :rolleyes:
