So far its been 3 weeks and he has 5 adsense pages up and running and making $25 per day. Not to shabby I'd say. Here's what I told him
1. Buy an autoblog/domain name so we dont need to build a page
2. Pay an seo expert to get us 3-4 keywords listed on the first page of google
3. Occasionally update your autoblog
4. Rinse and repeat
He thought I was crazy when I told him that I wanted him to spend money to make money, but fact is if you dont know how to do it yourself somebody does. Use them to your advantage.
My favorite business quote: "Do only what your good at, and nothing more". Well im good at spending money lol.
Hope this inspires some to take the first step into the IM world, feel free to PM me for any advice
