    Hello. I'm not very experienced regard internetz/advertising stuff, so question might be not that intelligent plus I'm not that perfect in english, so forgive me that please.

    Some time, well half year ago I developed bot for farming in on-line more or less popular multi-player game. To get a profit I didn't sell it, I just used linkbucks service, so user before he can have an actual ability to use my bot at first _must_ skip advertisement (activation), then after he pressed "skip" button main window pop-ups and user can launch the game and use my program.

    Linkbucks half year ago added account limitation, so right after that my account got limited and I didn't managed to get their response why my account is flagged, I sent 3 messages to them. I do realize that what I did it's scarcely fair, however by reading their "Terms and Conditions" I can't on 100% determine which paragraph they used to block me. I have created a new account and after I reached 15$ they suspended this account. Once again, I do realize that it's maybe not very fair, read: completely not fair even by a game rules, but in some period of time I just got happy that I can receive money from my work which I love, it became useful for a lot of people an so on. I received around 15k clicks per day and all traffic from Russia. I would can easily extend this amount with > 50k minimum by porting bot on other game versions, I just didn't want to get attention and 10$ per day was completely fine for me, it was just perfect and I was able to drink a beer everyday if you understand.

    So my question or even better would to say I just want to get your advice how better to deal to get a decent profit, I can't just sell it since it requires a lot of god damn work like hardware linking, different payment system support, technical support, and a lot of different things plus I don't think someone would by it since I'm not able to get on level of a private solutions. Maybe I should create a site or maybe it's just due to that all traffic from Russia, or maybe it's just me so dumb, anyway I would want to hear your opinions/thoughts, I mean what you would made to get a profit from 15k people constantly using your soft, I mean maybe just create an internet page with banners and launch IE with that page after user starts program, maybe somehow to plug a Pay-Per-Install affiliate, or surveys system, I mean I just want to get advice from experienced people because I've started to look at forum and lost in a huge amount of information I mean completely lost in it.

    You could lock certain parts of the program behind incentivized CPA offers.

    This is what you do, you make that bad boy a free trial for x days then require them to pay $x per month or a onetime payment

    You can also make a free version limited and to unlock the full thing they would have to upgrade

    Good Luck OP

    use the freemium model, users pay for a small onetime fee for a premium no ads version or the best way would be a donate version.

    Chris22, I will look into it, thanks.

    asap1,
    BuildMoreLinks,
    Basically it's what I mentioned in my post, I would like to avoid problems with setup payment system, support etc., it's just a much easier / way less problems to put an advertisements and didn't worry about anything. I mean it's hard to guarantee that I can keep soft in a working state. Something similar to linkbucks would solve all my problems, but for example ******* rates very low compared to LB and I just logged on my account that I used before and it shows sort of limitation. I can't find any good alternative, thats a problem. I'm also not going to build a business with it, just 5 (in ideal - 10) bucks in a day it's on what I am aiming for. Maybe it's much, but I've just though that so much users use program, so should be a way to get some little money with adverts. It would be very sadly if I am wrong really. Thanks for response and desire to help of you two, though.
