    Where I work I have access to a computer with internet with literally zero supervision. My bosses are cool, and let me browse and whatever as long as work gets done. My main money method is a PPD site, but it only really takes me 10 minutes to update and maintain. I make about $100/month from that. I just recently opened up a wallpaper site with adsense, and it ain't working so much.. I upload wallpapers whenever I'm bored basically.. but that is pretty boring. I have crashed and burned with amazon affiliate. I hate writing reviews. So I tried outsourcing articles on fiverr.. they were all crap. Now I have two books on amazon kindle.. but earn very little. Maybe like $5/month. So far, this has not been very profitable for me. But I might just write more ebooks on my spare time.. The sad thing is.. the only thing that pays decent is slice the pie right now.. I can make like 10 cents in 2 minutes pretty much. I'm looking for other ways to make money.. even if it is a stupid site like slice the pie.. I know of swag.. and those others.. but I think they pay crap. STP or working on my own website has really proved to be worth my time.. so what should I do? I don't mind doing a dumb get paid to site (i'm already getting paid on the clock anyway), but not if the pay is rediculous low... I still even think slice is low... but it pays a lot better than some of this other stuff..

    Your thoughts?

    I used to be in your same situation.

    How about starting a forum on something that you're interested. You have plenty of time to make a hundred profiles and fill it up with "interaction".

    I'd just keep exploring and find what you're good at. If you don't mind me asking, I'd love to know your method for PPD. I'd be extremely happy with $100 a month.

    mturk dot com is paid surveys. Depending on how much focus you can give it, I've been able to make upwards of $10/hour with it.

    I will look into mturk.. I'm kinda looking into mindless activities that could earn. If that is even possible? Not trying to use too much brain power. Something I can do while listening to music or something. But I know stuff like that that pays well is hard to come by.. or non existent.

    Do the guy asking about PPD.. I make $100.. but took me like 8 months to get there. I worked my ass off for the first 3 months or so. Nowadays, I can relax and only spend like 10 minutes on it daily. But in the beginning.. I put in a lot of work... so it wasn't even worth it. I spent a lot of time on it.. I feel like I deserve more like $100 a day... but I can't complain.. it's all passive now.. but a bit dissapointing. I'd rather had put that time and energy into something that might be paying me better now.

    Was making $300+ a day on it for a while. Then Google turned the traffic down to a trickle.

    You already have a adsense account
    Do some keyword search and start site in better niche

    How did you monetize your forum? Adsense? Building a forum has interested me.. I tried doing a vapor e-cig related forum, but it was lame, and never got any users really.. but then again I didn't try that hard. I would have to find a topic I'm really interested in, or I would get bored quickly.

    Try a forum that offers something you can sell (besides memberships) and where you can post Adsense ads on. Think products and communities. The Vaporizer/E-cig was on the right track. Marketed right, you can do health and fitness, not body building. You can try martial arts and amazon products.

    Adsense and clickbank mainly.

    Here's the beauty of having your own forum with 100 profiles you own:

    You A: I wonder if you can really make your own fuel, or is it a scam?

    You B: I've been thinking about trying this program <link to clickbank bs>. I'll tell you how it goes.

    You C: I tried this <link CB bs> and it was awesome. I'm making fuel out of mineral water!

    You D: I've been wondering the same think. Thanks guys!


    Yeah, the focus of the forum should be something you care about. Then make a lounge section to spam.

    The pain is keeping all your fellow BH spammers out of it. They will smell the gold mine pretty fast.
