    So I started my first IM journey from $0 to $not even the sky is the limit with IG+CPALead about 2 weeks ago! Today it is now a failure. My total was 8 clicks, 0 leads and $0 earned, so sad. The 8 clicks came from me making sure the links worked, haha! That said, it helped me learn some stuff I need to try to avoid next time! My IG account keeps saying my links lead to spam (even facebook.com and such) so I guess i'll just let it sit for a while and come back to it later.

    Now, on to my next journey! I'm still pretty new at this and I have $0 to spend. If anyone has any advice they think might help me in my next journey I would love to hear it! I'm not sure what I will try next, but as soon as I start I will post my new journey.

    Failure is a part of success.

    Congratulations. You got your first failure out of the way and your ready to go back at it. Your one step closer to success. Best advice: keep taking action (it's more than most do already), keep learning and keep throwing shit at the wall till something sticks. Good luck and Godspeed man!

    Look at my journey.... 20 days and $0.88... and I dont consider it a failure. Regroup and Replan if you think you aren't going anywhere sure, but make sure to explore everything before throwing the towel so soon...

    You miss you learn. but dont give up before you learn, make sure you give up AFTER you see what you did wrong.

    Haha! I registered in 2014, but I haven't tried IM till now. My career is a software developer, but I'm not that good of a seller so I figure this would help me get better. I also want to eventually get good enough to where I can automate this stuff using my programming skills.

    Thanks everyone! I plan on throwing plenty more shit at the wall, hahahahaha!

    You're Right!!!

    One of my favorite quotes is..... If you haven't succeeded yet its because you haven't failed enough!

    Oh I plan on having more failures hahaha! I consider this a failure because I was using 1 IG account and now not able to use it anymore. I probably shouldn't have started with IG though. This was the first time I have used IG :oops:

    Never take is a failure but as feedback. Now you know what doesn't work, so try something else.

    That's not a failure, you earned some experience.
    Try again, in a different way.
    Or perhaps you didn't like so much the method you tried and you didn't put so much passion in it?
