    Default Just needing to vent...

    I'm not sure where to start. Just been in the dumps lately and I'm just really starting to get emotional. Depressed, angry, and furious all at the same time.

    I started IM about a year n a half ago. Didn't know what I was doing. Didn't even know about BHW or anything. I googled for months on how to make money online. Could never find anything. Everything I ever found were nothing but scams. I was staying at my aunt's house at the time living off food stamps at 26 years old in the US.

    I've been through a lot in my time and just became depressed so that is how I ended up like that.. no friends.. job after job.. people dieing.. bad break ups.. just everything you could think of. I used to be a people person but after everything that has happened I'm the complete opposite now. So getting a ''real'' 9 to 5 job is out of the question. I feel like work is a waste of time and is slavery. There's a whole world out there and I don't want to spend the time I have on it working and being miserable. But I do know that money could change all of that.. and I know money doesn't make people happy but it sure does help. It can solve just about any problem and take stress and worries away.


    I googled and googled for months and couldn't find anything except adsense. Well I didn't know anything about it but I tried it for a few days and got banned. I was new and no idea what I was doing so yea. Then finally I came across a cam site that was paying for free signups. I immediately tried it. Again, not knowing anything at all or what I was doing and not knowing if I could be banned or anything either.

    Miraculously, I never got banned. I guess the way I was generating traffic was legit and it worked. I made a little over $5,000 in my first few months and was feeling good about myself. Then all the sudden they did away with their affiliate program. Then I found BHW and was browsing around and found another cam site affiliate. They even paid more.

    I tried them out, and made about the same. Between $2,000 to $3,000 per month and have been with them for over a year now. I guess the past 6 months though it's been slowing down a bunch. The places I use to generate traffic have been cracking down.. and the pervs have been getting smarter.

    Last month my traffic sucked, but I still made a lil over a thousand bucks. But the company I've been with said nothing was converting.. so they basically told me they don't want me anymore and they will pay me my last couple of checks and then that is the end of that.

    All in all. I made about $35,000 maybe 40 in a about a year and a half. That's not bad but it's not that great either. I guess it's about what almost the average person makes here? Plus taxes aren't taken out either so..

    But still, it was nice being able to work on MY terms and have freedom. I got out of debt, got my license back, got a decent ride (nothing fancy tho) Just a 2 door blue Chevy Blazer.

    Now I've got bills to pay.. insurance.. rent.. cell phone bill.. etc. Tho I can cover my bills with only $400 a month. But like I said, now I'm not making a dime and is why I am ranting. It all just went downhill these past few months.

    I've tried YT, PPD, CPA, ClickBank, and FaceBook. Never made a penny with any of those things. And that other cam site that I first started out with finally came back out with their affiliate program.. but now I still can't get traffic to it like I use to. I was able to get 500+ hits per day using E Whoring methods and at least 30 to 50 signups per day. But now, I am lucky to get 20 hits per day using my methods that have worked non stop for over a year. I just find it odd how all the sudden traffic just stops and no one is clicking my links anymore.

    Anyways, this was just a big rant. Sorry for the lengthy post.

    This is the internet. Everything changes in a blink of an eye. You must adapt and innovate your methods every so often.

    If you don't feel like working where there are many people just pay someone to find you a job which has 10 or less people working there and use that money to make more money. The more money you have the more you can invest.

    Life is now or never. Tomorrow really never comes. The only thing that matters is what you do now. Don't let yourself down. Go out and run, listen to some music go to work ( even if part time ) and focus on one method to making money. You can't fail that way.

    You are responsible for yourself now. No one is going to take their time and take care of you like when you were little. Just get up and get going. Life is hard sometimes but it is like that for many people and not just you. Some people have it worse than you do and what matters is that you keep going and focus on what is important.

    You only have one life to live and it is up to you how you are going to live it. Your choices will shape your life and it depends upon you on what those are going to be.

    Hey, looks like you know how to generate traffic. How about starting your own site, and your own brand? (adult or non-adult, you decide!)

    Thanks for the suggestion but I honestly don't know how to generate traffic anymore. The methods I've been using for over a year now seem to have just stopped overnight and am lucky to even get 20 hits in a day now.

    IM is advancing in leaps and bounds everyday and sometime even faster than that! Most of the stuff that worked a year or two ago does not right now this is the same sort of problem i am facing in every direction. I too just lost my job and its hard to find a new one as IM are out there by the dozen! But the most important for me these days has been to not loose my cool. As long as i am focused and don't lose my cool i can think straight. And that is helping me although all i have made not much in IM i am still hoping for the best and pushing on!

    Hope that helps! Also when life gives you the lemons, break out the tequila!
    Always helps! Cheers mate and hope you make it big soon!

    Nonsense, when you learn how to ride a bicycle, you never forget it,
    just because it is a different bicycle, it doesnt mean you cannot hop onboard and get going again.

    Have confidence and faith in your abilities,
    you WILL be back here in 6 months time telling us all how you have managed to
    dust yourself down, and got back up again.

    Cheers and Good Luck

    What's missing is experience. You haven't ridden the "feast & famine" rollercoaster often enough to feel confident when it's on the low side. A few years under your belt and you'll eventually expect the lows as well as the highs as just a part of the way things are. Learn to manage your money so you have enough reserve to hold you over for a period of time (6 months) and have emergency back-up plans in place in case things truly go to shit.

    They say that the people that are most likely to make a million dollars are the people that have already made a million and lost it. Once you've learned how, it's just a matter of repeating what you did the last time. Lows are actually good for you. For me, anyways. That's when I take my mind of money acquisition and start doing self-improvement, i.e. learning. Reading, etc... Plan my next stage, my next level of development, etc... Guess you could call the low-end "preparation" and the high-end "execution". There's a time for making money, and a time to get ready for making money. Neither of these conditions are permanent, and you always need to be ready for the inevitable change.

    Thanks for all the kind words guys. This forum is so much nicer than GFY.

    I've got enough saved up to pay all my bills for a year. Maybe a tad longer depending how much I get out and drive around. I use to go to the movie theater once a week and go out to eat once a week but I've cut back a ton on that and haven't been getting out much at all since my IM stuff went to the dumps. Was gonna buy a 60 in TV for my room and had to put that on hold. Which sucks cause now its football time. I was pretty smart with my money and didn't do anything crazy when I first started earning so I guess that's a plus. I kinda knew this day would come but I was just milking it as long as I could and just finally enjoying life of leisure. I didn't make a lot of money. Just enough to pay bills and have a lil me time if I needed it. That's all anyone could ever want. It's about the same as a regular job just more freedom.

    Anyways, the other day I saw a few methods on here.. figured I'd give them a twist and start PPD again (which I never made a cent last time) but this time I made a decent looking blog.. made it look pretty legit.. spent a full day making/editing a youtube video. HQ. Used my voice etc.

    Still, no traffic/hits or anything. Well just a couple of hits. But still, the methods I looked into was supposed to get at least a couple hundred hits per day.. They said they were getting thousands of hits per day. I didn't expect to get 5k to 10k like they were but I expected to see at least a couple hundred maybe. So yea, PPD is terrible for me. I'm starting to feel invisible on the internet like noone wants to click my stuff. No matter what it is. Which is strange. Because when I first started doing all of this.. I could get dumb teenagers to click on anything. No matter what it is. That's how I did so good with adult PPL. Once I got people to click.. it was cake. They'd sign up. But now, can't get them to click on any adult stuff, no YT stuff.. no nothing. Really getting me ticked off.
