    I came to this forum a few months back a complete NEWB! Started a journey thread and failed surprise surprise, and after a week of updating it i gave up on it. However i did not give up on IM dream. What i did do was continue to read threads on here and absorb as much as i could.

    I found Triperio's journey http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...eiros-journey-250k-network-facebook-fans.html , and followed along. Big thanks to Triperio , as he really helped me get going and got me in some wicked S4S groups. Now in the 10 or so weeks i followed this method i made around $1300. Unfortunately Zuckerburg , has put stop to that particular method by reducing organic reach down to virtually ZERO!!

    BIG LESSON LEARNED!! Don't put all your eggs in one basket.

    So with that been said , my new plan is to get 30k followers spread across 3 social networks. 10k for each network.
    I will use google plus and twitter to promote adult offers, and pinterest to promote a cpc program along side click bank products.

    How i will grow them:
    Twitter - follow and unfollow method. I have also started a Facebook group for the purpose of exchanging retweets. Pm me for details.
    G+ - follow and unfollow method. I also have joined a newly formed s4s group on Facebook (made up mainly of old Facebook page owners who like me had there eggs in one basket.
    Pinterest - follow and unfollow method. I'm also posting high quality content

    Where i stand
    Twitter - 1651 followers
    G+ - 2324 followers
    G+ - 1170 followers ( this number won't be counting towards my target, but i will be keeping track)
    Pinterest - 3008 followers ( won't begin monitoring until i reach target)

    What everyone wants to know :
    Adult PPL program: $0
    Plugrush : $ 0


    Looking forward to any input and advice. I will endeavor to keep this updated daily.

    why is that?
    Sex sells, and to be honest i really don't care what I'm selling. The only reason i started with the adult thing was i found a journey i could easily follow and worked.

    I'm in the same niche and I wasn't looking for specific product or anything. There are plenty of threads in BHW where people talk about the general niche they're targetting to give context to their projects.

    Day 2
    Well today was my standard day. I followed 100 ish people on twitter and g+. Pinterest i was lazy and just ran my macro to follow 300 people and didn't post any content. I also did a couple of s4s.

    Results
    twitter - 1732 +80
    G+ 2422 + 98
    G+ 1219 + 49 (not included in totals)
    Pinterest - 3029 + 21
    Total = +199 followers

    Earnings
    Adult ppl - $6
    Plugrush - $6.23
    total - $6.23

    Pumped i got a couple of leads. Im still getting a little bit of traffic from Facebook so it could have been from that.
    So today i will do the usual follow - unfollow and s4s. Yesterday i was a bit lazy and didn't really do much except the minimum. Today i will find a bunch of niche related accounts to retweet and fav and gather more content for twitter and G+.

    cya Tommorrow !

    Day 3

    Well an eventful day. I spent a lot of time scheduling content for the next couple days (hootesuite). My thinking was if i could get 3 or 4 days ahead i could concentrate on sharing, finding new content and new traffic streams. Well somehow i managed to post hardcore porn to one of my G+ accounts (2 week ban) as well as Facebook (3 day ban, which tbd I'm not really bothered about as I'm getting limited traffic any the first place.) The ban is not so much a dent to this journey as the G+ page that got banned was the small one, it does help when inciting s4s. So i feel like yesterday was a waste of a day.
    For the twitter account i also did a bit of favoriting and retweeting of accounts , which i think gained me a few followers.

    Results
    Twitter - 1778 + 46
    G+ 2538 +116
    G+ 1406 + 187 (not included in journey total)
    Pinterest 3052 + 23
    Total = +185

    Earnings
    Adult ppl - $17.50
    Plugrush - $ 0.15
    Total = $17.65
    Grand total = $23.88

    ​Well I'm pleased with the earnings so far, the ban has for sure set me back as i can't s4s ( 3 days due to ban). Really disappointed with the gains on Pinterest. Pinning content seems to get far more followers but takes up a lot of time, so i will continue just to follow about 300 people a day as i don't have the time to make anymore boards at the moment.

    I looked into instagram as someone suggested ( bah who got time for that :) , seeing as there are no 3rd party methods available to schedule content I'm gonna pass for the time being. I will however start to look at tumblr and will also start to build a blog to monitize my pinterest account, as well as build a new G+ page to make up for the lost one.

    Is there a follow limit with G+ pages? Have you looked into Tumblr?

    Im actually plan to check out tumblr today.
    As far as G+ follower limit goes, i have not found the upper limit yet, I'm following active people on other pages and am getting a good follow back ratio (75% i guess), but I'm only following around 30-40 per page per day. Hope that helps some

    When you do get serious with Pinterest, you should consider making your own groupboards and inviting like-minded pinners. That seems to be the best way to gain followers.

    If i create a group board i must be the one to moderate it tho huh? (which sounds like a lot of work lol) i guess if i only invite legit looking posters then it should not be a problem.
    Ty for the idea.
