Day 38 – Work Smarter Not Harder

June 12th, 2009

Part 2 of “Who Wins?”

First of all before I go on, I got a lot of traffic here ever since the controversy over Jeremy Kelsall’s testimonial..I noticed that Jeremy came in and replied back to it but it was caught in my spam filter.  Therefore to help set things straight for him, if you haven’t seen his response, you can find it here: Proof Jeremy didn’t fake a testimonial.

Now, as far as what the order of the day was…as you know I’ve been looking into ways to leverage the money I’m generating online now so that I can multiply my income even further.  To that end, I spent most of my time today looking into a method involving purchasing advertising space on adult sites and funnelling that traffic towards Adult Friend Finder which offers $75 per sign-up.

I’ve done everything to set things up except pay for the advertising, I think I’m going to venture out and give it a shot though, will be an interesting experiment (If you’re wondering, I got the idea from a WSO by Bakai)..

Aside from that, I didn’t get quite as much done as I had planned.  I bookmarked 4 more of my Hubpages and I created and posted up 3 more Hubpages.  I now have 10 Hubpages up.  I’ve gotten 37 visits to all my hubs in total, however this is probably just traffic from within Hubpages…My author rating is now 37 (it’s been climbing up from 0) and each of my articles are climbing up in rating as well (72,69,63,61,58,57,55,50,50,50).

Earnings For Today:

  • 4 Sales = $96.51 (2 Sales for Site #1 – $20.36 + $26.19, 1 Sale for the main sniper site – $27.12, 1 Sale for Site #3 – $22.84)  – I like the way the sales are going as of late
  • Adsense = $2.52
  • Hops = 476

    Mike – Have you looked into some of the methods of “e-whoring” on BHF? They have a whole section dedicated to different methods, so there must be some real potential to earn some serious money. The methods I’ve read don’t involve any paid for advertising but do require some work. As a married woman (14 years on the 17th – woo hoo) I don’t feel right doing this and my man would freak but I’ve read its a fast easy way to make money. 😀

    Congrats on your sales! You are kicking a$$!

    Shelly, As a man, who’s straight, it would be doubly wrong for me to get into that.

    I’m looking for something I can do where I can leverage the money I’m currently making to make even more (hence the name of the post). That’s the only way I’m going to make a substantial amount of money…

    The idea of reinvesting 1.5k each month, or even 5k or 10k each month into my business does not phase me in the least. I’m not looking to live off my online income just yet so I’ll gladly reinvest it all…

    The mentality of not wanting to spend too much money when pursuing this Internet venture needs to die in order to be successful. The good news is it’s easier to break through it once you’re making enough money from your online business for it to pay for itself.

    As part of my research I’m also going to be looking into PPC, I just picked up a PPC course I’m going to be reading through…

    I love your attitude! I have no doubt that you will succeed!

    Thanks for the daily updates, I really appreciate it. Reading about all the work you do online makes me WAY more productive. 😀

    Hi Mike,
    If you’re going to venture into PPC you might want to join Wealthy Affiliate for a month or two to talk to the real experts in that forum. They will hold your hand and get you started with all the templates, etc. I joined a couple years ago but really did not have the money to do PPC. They are real experts in PPC. I think you can even get a $1 first month rate from Pot Pie Girl. Just Google her name. Take care.


    P.S. Shelly, did you test out the index.php files for your plugins and themes folders on WP?

    Peter – I haven’t because I’m scared I’ll screw something up but I have the info saved for when I’m feeling brave.

    Hey Pete, thanks for the info…When I decide to take a serious go into PPC, I’ll definitely look into WA.

    @Shelly – Don’t worry, there is nothing you can screw up. All you are doing is adding a simple index.php file that in no way interacts with wordpress. Give it a try. I guarantee that it will not cause harm to you in any way. I do this for all my sites. Be a brave lady 🙂
