    Hello,

    I want to ask a question, and it is can you earn a decent amount online without all the accounts, proxies and bots? I have a bot which can spam facebook groups and I am using it to promote some pages with s4s and some trying to get referrals for some other sites, it works sometimes but not really.

    I really want to start trying amazon affiliates, I want to use an existing pinterest account and tumblr but with virtually no followers, not wanting to use the capital for accounts and proxies and not wanting to make accounts myself there seems to be no positive outcome.

    I thought about porn, I have a nice adult twitter account gaining 10 to 20 followers a day and I post nothing to it! I found a site, easyXsites which lets you create a tube site and import videos from many other tube sites, I don't even need to work to get content at that point. I figured set it up, use twitter tumblr and facebook for traffic with plugrush juicy ads and exoclick for ad rev and I'd be set. Yet having a girl, thinking of kids and my career to come, I couldn't do it. I realize porn is a legitimate way to earn but it seems, sleazy.

    I'm posting this as a person who at one point made a lot from Pinterest with adsense and mylikes, as a person who now makes pennies because the effort it took to maintain the method I was using became too much to bother with. My life was consumed by making gmail and pinterest accounts, new sites/blogs to add content to to spam to pinterest. This was all for money I did not need, do not need.

    I more or less want to know what people think when they read this, what they would do. Start the porn blog and grow the twitter account. Quit IM and focus on life? I had thought, I can code and make bots, why not sell them? Thinking of people taking and nulling the bot get me down on that as well, now I just have bots which sit and are used by me alone. Even if I do not need the cash, who says I can not use it?

    There are many other methods of making decent money online other than porn and spamming social media however nobody will be able to give you an exact method because that might just not work for you too. It also depends on what you're good at and how much time you're willing to invest. There are a lot of gold nuggets in the "Making Money" section that you could try. Reading the "Journeys" section will also give you a general idea on what's trending right now, what's working for others and what's not so go ahead and read that too. My piece of advice would be to focus on something that you enjoy doing even though it might take longer to make money from that

    What I tell my clients is that 'you need to find something that you can create or do that is valued/needed by others, and that is normally a group of people that you want to sell products/services to. To do this you need to know what your strengths and weaknesses are. If you make an honest list with everything I'll be happy to help :D. It also helps if you find something you find interesting it makes the work much more easy to do.

    The issue here is that I am good at one thing. Computers, I am a Computer Engineer (Student for 10 more months). I've been working coding and programming for almost two years now professionally. For a while I have wanted to teach (Started but got discouraged) online, java or c. I have a youtube channel and a blog, I intended to start doing tutorials on more advanced topics that you really only learn by working at a high level in the field.

    What bot are you using to spam fb groups op ? I'd really be interested in something like that.

    That's awesome! Would you say teaching is what you enjoy the most about coding? What was it that got you excited/motivated about it when you started? YouTubing and blogging on a high level like that can be really rough because so many people at that level don't even check free options, especially in your niche. That does not mean it's not impossible by any means though, it just means you have to find a way to catch the eye of your target audience.

    A story of mine that I like to repeat too much is Once A friend of mine found a litter of kittens in her back yard their mother was feral or wild. They ended up taking the kittens in, getting them their shots, and getting them fixed, as well as making sure they were very tame and good with people. She put an add in the paper for "Adopt a free kitten" and after a month they had no replies. Then she had the idea to try and sell them so she put the next add (in the same paper) for "Adopt a kitten for $100" and within two days every kitten was adopted.

    I am not saying by any means that YouTube/blogging is a bad Idea as long as you make sure that it will feel valuable if that makes any sense. Even if that means you have some sort of paid option on top of other things YouTube/blogging can be amazing for building a long term following.

    Sorry to see you go! Good luck :D

    And PS I can not reply to PMs because I am a noob :(
