    Hello!

    A little information about me:
    I am a developer that is born and currently living in the Philippines. After reading a lot of threads here, I decided to take a deep dive to a sea that I've never been to before: SPAM!!!!!

    Why I've chosen spamming: I've coded countless tools and bots for games and some websites in the past. So I'm familiar with reverse engineering and out of the API debugging. Now I want to apply it to acquire some money to pay for the bills.

    The Plan:
    Traffic Source #1: Facebook
    So I've chosen to code a tool for the most famous social media website that we all know - Facebook. I will post on groups while staying under the radar. How? Minimal post, like 2 posts a week. So how do I get traffic? Simple...
    An invisible bumper! On Facebook groups, you can bump your post to go to top by commenting on your post using another account. So let's call the accounts that you post on "niche accounts" and let's call the invisible bumpers "dummy accounts". We will post a picture with caption using the niche accounts and our dummy accounts will comment and delete instantly so it will be bumped to top post every single time.

    I won't post any links to the groups. Just a simple "add me" phrase would be enough, and then I will wait until they add me. From there, my bot running on an endless loop auto accepting friend requests and scanning messages ( from their XMPP servers ) will do it's magic to chat with the incoming horny guys. I'm improving the AI capability of the chat bot everyday.

    Traffic Source #1: Tinder
    On Tinder, everything will run on a simple routine - scan Tinder recommendations, Like someone, if they match, send chat.

    I hope this journey will make me organized and motivated to keep going on even if I fail.

    Monetizing:
    Right now I'm still deciding how to monetize altough I will try dating offers first. If it doesn't work, I'll try incentivized downloads.

    Let's do it!

    Good luck mate, you planning on using proxies? Fb might catch on if your upvote accounts are always up voting /commenting on comments from the same IP

    Dear mj0lnir,
    Spam is generally a best solution for speed cash :) But it doesn't takes so long you to make a money for you. But your plan looks like a great. I think you don't need a luck! You will get what you want !

    Cheers!

    Good luck with your journey.
    From my experience a talented coder will find massive success when he pus all his efforts on creating a product which adds real value. It's longterm, it's rewarding and it can be recurring as well.

    You should consider twitter as a traffic source too, as well as Google+

    Other than that, goodluck mate!

    Hello guys,

    After 7 months...I'm happy and proud to say that I'm currently making a good $300 per day. From spamming and some monthly rent from the bots that I've coded. Mostly from the monthly rent from my bots. I will be checking a few spam methods and see if I can twist and automate it so I can have more earnings..as the bots that I am currently having for rent are making me good passive income already.

    Will keep you guys updated!

    Any plan on sharing with us your bots? I'm sure some people would be willing to pay too.

    OP how does your chat method work. Does the bot reply with sexy stuff to juice them up and basically be like "watch me on cam" type thing?

    Would you be willing to show a transcript or chat log of a typical guy who chats up the bot and converts?

    I kinda stopped spamming on Facebook since they made everything harder and they patched my XMPP method that I'm using to auto respond to chats.

    I'm sorry I don't have public bots to release, as most of my bots are coded for personal use. Although if there's a great method I can code a bot to automate it and release to BHW.

    And please, don't make this as a "purchase" thread! Thanks. Gonna update when I see something interesting here in BHW.
