    What's up guys, I want to know the truth. Is it worth all this time and effort? Do you guys see good money from this? I built up a 30k comedy account but Im losing motivation. I feel like the internet is just a dream killer. Any advice?

    It takes time, Social networks are goldmine, you need to wait and keep testing things, dont loose motivation. I earned my real first $ after doing hard work of 2 months.

    Not only testing but do alot of research, keep reading and you will get more and more ideas, also investements have very important role.

    Is it worth it?
    Like anything, if you know what you are doing, it is; otherwise it is a waste of time. You are looking at it from a microbial point of view; social media is not only used to drive sales and traffic but to increase and reinforce your brand awareness which in turn can result into customer loyalty and brand love (if you play it right).

    Talking from a purely money making point of view, social media is definitely not the top notch channel, however, it is definitely one of the top. You can bank HARD, again, if you know what to do.

    "30k comedy account"
    That put a smile on my face :)))

    Let me ask you a couple of questions; are you aware of the shit that "lol traffic" is worth? If you want to see a penny, you better have 3 million; 30k is not going to give you shit.

    Where is your audience from? What segments? Demographics? I bet you don't know, because if you did you could segment it and play around with orders according to those elements.

    The problem with your account is that your demographics are going to be SUPER random, and you know what happens when you got random traffic? You cannot target offers hence making money is really tough... unless you got a shit ton of it :)

    I'll just go ahead and ask you to please not to poison people's brains with "the internet is a dream killer", because it is not, you are just playing the wrong game with the wrong cards.

    Best of luck with your future moves.

    I think a lot of people quit when they don't get the feedback or comments they expect. If this is the case then get a bot and start a little botnet of 50 or 100 accounts. Have the accounts do exactly what you did to gain followers and then have them like and comment on your stuff. Result = more trafic, more Real trafic, more exposer, and of course...more comments. :)

    You gotta have a lot of patience with it. I love building up my accounts and growing them everyday for each popular social network and when i'm ready to drive traffic to one site. BOOM easy and simple traffic in on click

    there's no promise in anything, at the end of the day Hard work pays off in whatever you do, same applys to social media, i know people making $500 + a day, and ill let you know it didn't happen overnight.... Educate yourself and learn how you can monetize( Affiliate offers, Products ext) on the followers you have currently instead of asking if it works or not, you be the judge not anyone else.......

    It's gonna take time. I'm on the same journey of building up followers. Figuring out how to monetize is not easy, or else everyone would be doing it. I think this is about hitting the tipping point, where previously you made no money you end up making a ton!
