Do you think it is worth investing time in this method?

A couple of days ago I found a method here on BHW that somehow promises $250 a week income or even more, writing articles with AI on medium to offer audible books.

To date I have published 20 articles following the method's instructions to the letter, and the results I have obtained are 64 views and 20 reads. In other words, I have gotten nothing. Needless to say, not one person has listened to any of the books on audible.

I do not copy and paste articles made with AI. While the articles are made with AI, I usually rewrite them almost entirely to improve the quality of the text, as the AI usually always uses the same words, the same expressions and the same writing scheme, which I don't think is a good thing. I also take the time to make eye-catching images that are related to the topic of the articles.

This is obviously not done in 5 minutes. It takes time to have a decent text to publish on medium.

Although little time has passed, so far nothing makes me think that this method is going to work and the last thing I want is to invest time in something that will not get anywhere because throughout my life I have invested a lot of time in things that have never given results and I do not want to keep repeating that same story forever.

So, do you think it is worth investing time in this method?

Despite all the above, I would like to read your opinions.

If someone tells you that they made 250$ or whatever why did you believe it?
You know that mods don't have time to verify each and every claim made on this make money section?
 
Apply to the partner program, you might earn a few cents.
 
Medium money making is bullshit like those steem (Blockchain social media) or something articles.

Probably your keywords don't match the intent. Or your traffic isn't from search.

That website is bullshit. No way to rank this shit in 2024 without private lists on gsa ser.

And audible books... I don't know if this type of niche is profitable. First do research.

Haven't seen it anywhere on the forum with mentions in threads about profitability. Probably nonsense.

Loopholes are twists for methods.

So find a working affiliate product like adult pictures / videos/ leaks / dating offers or game cracks / downloads / mods or nutra supplements or pills like Viagra replacements.

Pair it with loopholed traffic source. Abuse.

Living la vida loca.

Forget medium money. It's just random views and reads. This is probably traffic that isn't targeted.

Find your audience either by keywords and satisfying intent or reaching to certain groups of people (for example post fitness products in fb group about fitness). All about targeting right.

Ultra targeting is possible with ads but organic traffic doesn't suck if you do proper amount of tests.

The need to make money is what often makes people believe that a method can work.

It is psychological. The method I am referring to is a method that was shared for free here at BHW, so one thinks: "if this person shares a method for free, it is possible that this method works".

Although sometimes it happens that the person who shares a method is only looking for likes.

Taking advantage of the occasion, is there any method that you know and that you have tested and would like to mention, that really works to make money?
 
I doubt that anyone is going to give a working method so easily. Generally , when the method gets saturated , then it is shared by the member as a method.
It usually happens, however, the only way to know if something still works is to test it.
 
I read the post you're referring to and I saw your skepticism there. People tried to explain to you that it doesn't work overnight, but you still don't seem to understand. If you don't even believe in your own work through the method, no one can help you.

You should focus on ranking for keywords related to the book through these articles. If the articles aren't ranking on Google, then they're of poor quality and your Medium account has already been shadowbanned. Check if this is happening, if so, you're wasting your time.

And as they said to you earlier: in general, affiliate marketing takes months to reap results, especially through this type of method which works by ranking on Google and attracting organic traffic in the long term.

I understand very well that things don't happen overnight. That is clear to me and I am not expecting miracles of any kind.

What happens is that it is one thing when you try something and see possibilities from the start and quite another thing when you try something and simply see that nothing happens "no sign of life".

As for having been shadowbanned in medium, I would think that is not the case. I have done my best to create quality content, although you never know.

Yes. Porn and modded apps. Who doesn't want free premium? It only takes one email to get conversion.

If you want to promote ebooks, make your own ebook. Cater to your audience that you own.
 
I don't know if you saw that one of the forum members started a Journey for just that method:
 
the trick is to find something you don’t hate doing that you can commit at least 6 months too.

The amount of folks on here who think they’ll be doing well after 100 hours work is frankly delusional and will never happen using any method.

Make a sixth month ( minimum) plan and work your ass of implementing it and as you learn and work a lot you’ll see useful ways to adapt that plan without it being hypothetically blah blah blah but a adaptation based on experience and reality.
 
I want to make an update and ask a question again:

I have published 30 articles on medium and they are mostly good quality articles, however, visits and readers still do not appear.

To date I have 14 followers, 153 views and 64 reads. Of this, 0 people have heard any of the books I am promoting.

Do you think that these statistics are in line with what one should expect when implementing a method like the one I am implementing? (If you don't know what I mean, read the first post).

Is it worth continuing to insist on this method?

What do you think? I would like to read your comments.

Any free method you find here is going to miss some ingredients, so you need to add to it. For example, you're getting reads and views, now find something to write about that sells.

Figure out why are ppl reading the articles. Maybe their goal is to read a summary or synopsis of the book, so they have no reason to listen to the audiobook.

Are you even pitching them the book, or you just throw a link in there and hope they click?

If you get a sale after 100 reads, will that be worth it? Maybe not, but if you find another product that has a better return per 100 reads then you might be satisfied.

Also check competition. Maybe others are automating this method and are adding hundreds of medium posts daily on multiple accounts to play the volume game, in which case it might not be worth doing manually.

Thanks for your comment.

To be honest, I don't know what to write about that will sell. That is to say, for anything you think of, there are hundreds or thousands of competitors who are in the game of writing reviews and who got to that game long before you, then getting something to write about and have it sell is not easy task.

Regarding the book, I not only publish a link in the articles, but I invite readers to listen to the book. I try my best to create a good review of the book so that people feel interested and decide to listen to the book, but it is something that no one has done so far.

As for automating the process, I have never believed in that because automated articles are mostly garbage and I wonder, if a person tries hard to create content that is not automatic, that makes sense and still achieves nothing, will it be possible that creating garbage automatic content will achieve anything?

In fact, I once had an autoblog with more than 3 thousand articles, around a niche with many followers, and I never exceeded 20 visits a day because if you sat down to read the articles, they were garbage, so I have never believed in the potential of autoblogs, not even today with AI because articles made with AI tend to be repetitive, and almost always have the same structure in the texts.

In fact, what I publish on medium is created with AI, but I always have to rewrite the articles almost entirely for the reasons I give.
 
You may have a try see the result.
 
Waste of time. I will say that again. :D

This is as white hat as it can get. Even this niche is something that'd never convert without ranking. No way.
