Does botting still work these days for affiliate marketing?

    Hey guys,

    I notice I'm getting a lot less Skype requests from sexy girls wanting to chat. Also on youtube there's a lot less of those "I made $500 a day from this program" posts.

    Are bots dying out in the affiliate marketing arena? If so it sucks for me because I'm just now gaining skill as a programmer and wanted to make money with bots and affiliate marketing (no money for paid traffic)

    Keep working at it. There will always be something to bot. Platforms may fizzle out, but there will always be new platforms to bot.

    The new(ish) platform that is opening up is Facebook Messenger due to their opening the API up for devs. You won't be able to spam it like the "I make $10,000 dollars yesterday while eating ice cream sandwiches" type posts, but if your bot adds value, and makes you money, then you'll be welcome on that platform.

    Perhaps a personal shopper bot that someone can message on messenger, etc. Aside from messenger, just keep an eye open for new social networks that don't have sophisticated botting algos yet. I was really excited for Peach, but it died out pretty quickly. There will be others. In my opinion, botting is just getting started.

    TL;DR: Platforms will get more difficult as they mature, but botting won't die. Just keep watch for new opportunities.
