    Hello. After failing in PPD and CPA i just asked myself "what i'm doing the best?" the answer was "smoking weed". :)
    Then i made a facebook page and tumblr blog about marijuana.

    #facebook
    I made this page on 23.02.13y, so far it has ~3000 likes. At this moment i'm just posting pics, talking to page fans etc.
    How i'm getting likes? I'm just commenting other pages posts that are in marijuana niche, simple as that.

    This is the most popular post so far. Its good for only 3k likes i guess.

    #tumblr
    I'm getting marijuana photos mostly from pinterest.
    Using tumbloard.com to load photos to the queue.
    I'm not doing anything else at all.

    #monetization
    How i'm going to monetize both pages?
    I'm gonna use my affiliate link on the Facebook page. For example i post some nice pic of bowl/bong/pipe/whatever and in the description i add something like 'A lot of people asked where to buy this, bla bla bla <affiliate link>. If someone buys my product i get 10% of it.

    On Tumblr i'm using mylikes.com. If you don't know, its a site which pays you for each click from US, CA, AU, UK. I'm just adding this link to the photo description. Simple as that.

    #earnings
    I didn't really start monetizing my fb page because i think its too early. I will start at 10k~ i guess. Few days ago i just posted a photo of a bowl and someone asked where to buy it. I found a shop that was selling it, they had an affiliate program.

    Posts with affiliate link: 2
    Unique clicks: 297
    Sales: 1
    Earnings: 2.97$

    Mylikes:
    I'm waiting for a payment of 6.09$. Will update info tomorrow.

    #stats
    Facebook likes:
    3018

    Tumblr followers:
    484

    Thats all for now. I hope i can reach 50k fans on facebook in a month or so. Wish me luck. This thread will be updated everyday.

    Good luck mate, I am deep in the Tumblr game and starting to reap the rewards. I'm having good success with non-nude adult images and Plugrush ads, redirecting my Tumblr sites to private domains. For the first month or so I was getting loads of followers and unique visits but not making a lot of money but last week I rearranged the ads on my favourite theme and my earnings have started to rocket! I wish you well on your journey.

    Update
    Nothing new really. I didn't advertise my fb page as much as i do everyday cuz i went out to drink and smoke some.

    Tip: create a second facebook account and make it a page manager. In case if your main acc gets banned, you don't lose your page cause its also linked to another account :)

    mylikes.com paid me just 2.98$ instead of 6$ which i had. Thats because they are validating all the clicks in 48h, so it didn't count earnings from thursday/friday. Tbh it never took them so long to accept my earnings and atm i have 4.73$ in my acc and its still not available for payout.

    Mylikes accepted my earnings. I got 8$ on my account at the moment, making average of 1.5$ per day with just one blog. Pretty good i guess. They are paying each friday with minimum of 2$ to payout. I'm also thinking about buying a domain for my tumblr blog.

    Been doing the same for whole day. Facebook; commented other pages posts, posted few nice images, one of them went viral pretty quick. So far like 20 shares in 30min. Also i have made 2 new posts with affiliate link, so far no new sales.
    Tumblr; used tumbloard to load another pack of photos to the queue. My most viral pic on tumblr got like 2000+ reblogs.

    I'm pissed off because tumbloadr.com stopped working for me. It just works like its all good, but it won't load any photos to the queue. Do you guys know any other page/program for this? I'm losing money :C

    Facebook stats for today:
    [​IMG]

    peace

    Man, I really really don't want to play the moraliser or teacher or parent or something.. but how can you accept that? How you can just passively be cool with "i didn't work much, just got stoned".

    I smoked before for a couple of years (smoked daily), stopped before my masters degree. Since I've been doing business, I've almost never smoked, once I smoked for around one month and my efficiency dropped to around 20%, maybe even lower.

    All I'm saying is I work (and therefore earn) 500% more when I am not stoned... Its like being drunk (except alcohol would make my efficiency drop into the negative %, I would probably ruin my business, lol)


    PS. i forgot my main message which is nice thread, best of luck and keep digging for the diamonds :)

    I have to agree with you man, but sometimes its just too good to go out and smoke some. As i stated in last post, weather in my country got so great after cold winter so i couldn't just sit in home. Weed makes me more creative aswell. I know its not helping at all just making it even worse, but its my choice and i won't change anything. Facebook/tumblr pages are growing fine.

    peace

    I know what you mean, and I also know that a forum post from a random guy like me will never make you want to change that, that's something that - if one day it will come - will come from within you.

    Anyways, again best of luck buddy, I do tumblr and facebook stuff as satellites to some clients' big sites so I'll be dropping into this thread every now and then to check out and get new ideas!

    I need to get this fixed asap. Tried different browsers and still nothing. If anyone knows other tumblr queue poster i'll be very thankful if you post it.

    peace!

    edit: bonus. You just tell people to share your photo, this is what happens:
