I have a few ideas to accomplish my goals. I’m sure more will come to me as I make my venture into earning income online.
I plan on creating a handful of blogs that genuinely interest me in a particular niche and I intend on blogging about these subjects once every other day or so. I also intend on having a few articles written for me for each site so that I can have content generated without taking much of my time. I will have a few targeted affiliate offers and include Adsense on these blogs as well. I will rely on search engines for organic traffic.
Pay Per Click
I have plans to start up two pay per click advertising campaigns on Yahoo! Search marketing. I currently just setup an account there and have $130 to spend. I plan on picking one offer that is currently hot and another offer that I feel has a strong following. Hopefully they’ll turn out good for me.
I will probably setup about 10 autoblogs in particular niches. These will be setup as subdomains on all-relevant.info. I will have a few targeted affiliate offers on these sites. In addition Adsense will be included on these blogs as well. I plan on submitting these autoblogs to social bookmarking sites and directories for traffic. I also plan on receiving some organic search traffic from Google, Yahoo! and MSN search engines. I will also drop a few links around the more popular websites in their respective niche for link building.
If anybody else has any ideas for me, please let me know.

My goals are simple. I want to be able to start off by being able to pay for my student loans via the income I earn online. That’s short-term. In the long-term I wouldn’t mind being able to make a living via the web.
Here’s a small set of goals that I’ve establish for myself. This way, within 6 months I’ll be able to pay for student loans via the income I’ve made off the internet.
Please note, these figures are net income, not revenue generated. I also plan for this income to be recurring income. Not income I’ve made off a one-time sale of a website/service/etc…

Well a few years back when affiliate marketing hit myspace I took advantage while I could. I mean, who didn’t. A friend walked me through everything I needed to get started. Before I knew better I was making hundreds daily with MINIMAL effort. Life was good. Then they cracked down and myspace sued everybody. So, I decided it was best to go legit.
This is where I ran into problems, I didn’t know affiliate marketing at all. I never even attempted to learn it and subsequently didn’t even try.
Then around October of 2007 I decided I wanted to get involved in affiliate marketing because I didn’t want to get a full time job. For about 2 months I research and read A TON of material on WickedFire and learned many useful things which is what I will be basing this attempt on.
This time last year I started a handful of autoblogs, ran a few PPC campaigns, had a couple legit sites and ended up spending around $300 and only seeing about $100 of it come back to me. When you don’t have a job and see that kind of money going out, you lose hope, which I did. Plus a full time job came a long and I had to accept it. Bills were getting past due.
Now this time around I have some money at my disposal that I can invest and attempt to make some money online. I know that it takes money to make money. With the help of WickedFire I’m hoping to make a decent amount of money online.

The purpose of this blog is to give you frequent updates on my attempts to make money online.
I currently work full time as a Title Officer for Fidelity Residential Solutions. I do title work on foreclosed homes in Michigan, Georgia, Utah, South Dakota and Montana. This job is currently financing my attempts to make some money online until I become profitable.
I just finished my Bachelors degree in Finance from Northeastern State University. Unfortunately, I obtained my degree with the help of student loans and I just started paying them back this month. Once profitable, I plan on paying these student loans back, in full with the money I’ve earned online.
