    Hey guys!

    I’m pretty new here, but I guess I’ll be trying to keep a journal of how I lm trying to do everything to make money.

    It’s only a matter of time till I find something that works, so hopefully my failures (and successes!) will be of use to you,

    So I’ve mostly been making money writing articles in the bitcoin niche: I’ve been doing this for about 2-3 years now and usually get paid $15-$30 for 500 words.

    Due to the huge sell off in the market though, $ has been slow so I’m looking into alternative ways to make $.

    I sold all my stocks and tried dropshipping. My sites still up, I have okay products, but I need to redesign my website to actually get people to buy imo.

    So I’ve been trying to pitch to companies for copywriting and/or social media marketing. I was doing the research by hand, and discovered paigham bot.

    I bought it yesterday but I’m still having difficulties regarding actually getting the key to work but I have high hopes of being able to land my first client with it,

    Hey guys Day 2/365 for 2019.

    I've just been sending cold emails to local businesses.

    Support for the paigham bot hasn't responded, so still cannot comment on the effectiveness of that. Hopefully, they get back to me quickly.

    Finally got the key to activate.
    I got it to work earlier briefly, and I think I submitted 400 crypto-niche related contact forms.

    But now I've come across several problems. Certainly discouraging but I'm going to make this bot work.

    1. Proxies - bought 10 dedicated from proxyhub. That should be the end of it I'd imagine.
    2. NO RESULTS FOUND - Error that I'm getting. Certainly disturbing.
    3. GOOGLE SHOWING CAPTCA TOO MANY REQUESTs - I think should be soled because of the proxies.

    Tagging @Cratos + @Skyebug77 for help as well.

    So the bot is now running smoothly. I've got 3.4K photography related keywords running through it right now. I plan to use the contact pages to pitch one of my cold email templates targeted towards the photo/video niche.

    It is running a bit slow, however. But I don't think I can spend things up until I get my proxies from proxy-hub. I've got scraping throttled between 10-60 seconds (default) but the tutorials show between 3-5. I think I'll be hitting the TOO MANY REQUESTS again unless I've got proxies to rotate.

    Once I'm done with this I hope to run my crypto keyword list and use a cold email template I've got with that for that niche.

    Plans, after that, IDK>

    I'd hope that one company messages me back considering that will be literally at least 10,000 contact pages... we'll see.

    Looks like a great journey!

    Thank you for the shout out!

    I usually recommend going with Blazing SEO (they have a BST somewhere in here) for proxies because they are the one's that I have found to be most reliable. But with regards to scraping Google, that's a whole other animal.

    I also recommend that you just scrape yahoo and bing instead, saves you money and time. Have you joined our private FB group already? There are a lot more tips that you can learn from in there. We also have a cheat sheet that will enable scraping search engines and other sites with the right settings to avoid getting your IP banned all the time.

    Get in touch to get access to the FB group or simply do a search for paigham bot- elite lead systems in the facebook groups search.

    Any other questions just let us know. Be sure to checkout all of our video tutorials on our site here as well: https://www.paighambot.com/videos/

    Also update:

    I had the bot running and posting to contact forms. I think I had posted to somewhere between 3000-5000?

    I'm still trying to find some settings that are consistent.

    I have 15 dedicated proxies running and trying to get the throttle scraping limit as low as possible without hitting some kind of error server end (too many request, proxy timing out, etc.)

    I've had one person TEXT me, one angry email, but the rest have been eh.

    I swapped over to the cryptocurrency keywords I have (1.6k) and i'll def. let this run today, write up a template when I get home, and having it contact forms later tonight.

    I've got three potential leads so far. I think I've got my rhythm down. Slow and steady seems to be the name of the game. If you go too fast, the search engine hits you up with captions that end up slowing you down.

    At this rate, It'll probably take 2.5 days of 24/7 operation for the bot to scrape the 3.1k words off of Google. That should be I'd assume 50k contact pages, however, considering I scraped 200 or so yesterday and netted 4k or so.

    I'm also working "organically" manually finding clients that are local and sending them hand crafted DM's. I keep it all tracked in an excel so I follow up weekly.

    Optimistic we can get something working.

    All it takes is one.

    Got another potential client, asking for sales letters in sets of four. Potential $$ maker right there.

    I'm running a new campaign with only 700 keywords targeted specifically towards wedding photographers/videographers.

    I'll leave the bot running overnight scraping to hopefully start submitting to contact forms tomorrow morning with a new cold template as well.

    goodluck to your journey. I see that the bot you are using cost 99/month which is quite expensive in my opinion. I suggest you use scrapebox, it also has the function of that bot. you can buy it for a cheaper price.

    I read a comparison between the two and honestly, I might take a look at scrapebox but I'm quite liking paigham bot. I'd imagine I'd be able to get at least one client if I scrape and post to contact forms pretty much 24/7 for a month.

    Update:

    Scraped google last night but man it is a PAIN. Scraped and posted to contact forms after scraping maybe 3k contact forms.

    Swapped over to yahoo's search engine because it's fater to scrape for the moment, i'll let that run ovrnight and post those contact forms.

    Working on learning how to do custom footprints, so i can scrape yellowpages/yelp and contact wedding biz on there.

    Yeah it is so hard to scrape via google better to use other search engine or use residential proxies. as far as i remember someone posted here custom footprints on finding that. I'll try to find the link and post it here.

    Please do, that would be SUPER helpful.

    And yeah I'm scraping tons faster with yahoo rn. I probably don't need these 15 proxies then lol.

    Just realized I've been an idiot for not using the smart niche filter.

    I was always wondering why I got the most WACK responses sometimes but realized I just needed to filter my URLs again.

    I did an a blast today to about 2k or so supplement companies, hopefully, that brings something in.

    I'm doing a scrape/contact post submission for companies selling presets (lightroom presets, adobe presets, etc.) and using the smart niche filter for the first time.

    Hopefully, I get a lot more accurate submissions.

    Trying the CBD niche. I heard good things about it, so I've been scrapnig that for a couple hours now.

    Google keywords won't let me use the keyword planner for that which is strange though.. .so I've come up with a couple just on my own.

    Will this be only a STOCK based journey or will you dive into the IM world?
