    Hi all!

    I made over $70,000 dollars in the summer last year by doing a method that no longer works. I basically got lazy after I made that money, neglected IM, quit my part-time job, bought a car etc. Now my money is basically draining away and my weekly profits are less than $100. I need to start my IM up again, hopefully get motivated by keeping this thread up to date. I have to start from scratch again as my old method no longer works so I have to find new ones.

    I hate SEO and slow methods of generating traffic. I'll be sticking to social networks such as Twitter,Instagram and Pinterest as well as using some other methods. Right now I have a few thousand accounts on each of these sites and a MNS to play with.

    My goal is to get back in the game and get that hunger that I once had, as a hunter hunts best when he is hungry :).

    It sucks when you have a good thing going and the rug gets pulled out from under you. I have been there twice.
    I am back in the black for the third time and my new and improved tricks are kicking ass.
    I wish you well and once you make it back you will probably appreciate it more.

    :)

    Thanks

    Pinterest was easy before the spammers came, now not so much.

    Nice words thanks!

    Not much to update,Right now I am continuing to grow my social profiles followers in each social network. I have over 50k accounts combined now so I am building them all up to look legit and aged before I start monetizing them. I also started a BST here for selling accounts just waiting for it to be reviewed. I am learning to code at codeacademy too, doing some basic HTML and CSS whilst focusing on my studies!

    Thanks for the kind words!

    Jumped into facebook PPC today, created my first 2 ads. Costed me £10 but made $63. Not bad for my first try I guess, but bad news I was logged into a VPN when I tried to increase my ad spend so facebook suspended my account for suspicious activity! Do'h lol so trying to get that back.

    Also wrote 3 aricles for my mns, and still building up my social presence aswell. I am going it make a plan to monetize it soon.

    Still waiting on my BST to be submitted.I also have ideas for my own product that I will research. You may think that I am strecthing myself thin here, and I may well be but I am looking for something profitable and I am making alot of time for myself.I only sleep 4 hours a night 12pm-4am for the past 2 weeks haa 'aint nobody got time for sleep when you want to be succeed, hell I forget to eat sometimes lol.

    Keep it up bro! Don't give up! If you will think that you are done go chill out, meet some friends and try to relax, because I think when you just are relaxing the head will work later much better :)
