    I spend quite some time each day here, it's a nice and friendly forum and I almost can't stop reading and reading and reading :)
    So after some little trouble this morning, I thought I ask here for advice:

    Today I had to learn, that 2000 Euros, which I planned to spend on outsourcing, won't come. So I'm stuck with the tools I already have, the low income from my dayjob and a few bucks here or there.

    My problem is, that I probably read to much about IM, read Fatcat, Commision Ritual, A100K, Warriorforum, BHW, about all of the tools, you name it.
    So I have already some tools, have webspace, some domains, a first running adsense page with no clicks, subscribed to some aff networks/ google - I just don't know where to go for. It's bright and shiny everywhere and I've lost track.

    I have an active SerpAssist subscription (that's not financially endangered, but I'm not fully convinced about it), scrapebox, serpattacks, traffic travis pro, artisteer and other keyword brainstorming stuff (I'm member at thekeywordacademy).
    But my english is not that good, so I couldn't write a lot of articles. So I guess my last bucks go on articles?

    Yesterday I was planning on either buying tweetattacks or zennoposter pro along with private proxies (or vpn) to try a quick attack on twitter (my PC has plenty of power to cope with the amount of threads).

    Today AMR looks so promising (successstories everywhere).

    Did I mention I get easily distracted?

    My goal is to reach a reliable amount of money (<100$) /month within 3 month, no matter if adsense or cpa, organic traffic or twitter users (but no pr0n or scam). I just have to see what I'm doing bears fruit.Then I'd do more of it.
    My twist: I have only 1,5 days in the week at hand for it (full thursday and half of friday).


    What would be the easiest way for me, considering what I already have got? I could spend 100 $ more if it's really needed for reaching my goal
    (probably up to 300$ for the next 2 months, but that's it then).



    -Zennoposter: looks lovely for 299,- and I can some scripting, but I don't know if the ROI is quick enough to justify buying it right at the start of my journey. would be the swiss army knife.

    - Tweetattacks: would allow for a quick try at twitter/cpa.

    -AMR: better than my SerpAssist subscription? Woud help reaching my goal?

    - Articles: The method you mention relies on articles, so the money should go there?

    - The Best Spinner? Auto Approve Lists? Articles? Private Proxies? VPS? Outsourcing?


    - anything other that could show me a direction?


    If you need to know more to help me, just ask.

    Help me getting on track, if you know something that gets me at least 100$ a month with my tools, I'm thankful for your advice!

    OK, small update:

    Bought Zennoposter Pro and Tweet Attacks.
    Both great, unfortunately I bought this right when Twitter decides to shoot at everything that moves, I really have problems to keep accs live even without doing anything to them.
    Adsense site ranks on first page for some longtail keywords, but not making any money.

    Home Page:
    you are barking up too many trees. if you are going after SEO, you shouldn't get tweetattacks, and visa versa. focus on one thing and make it work. if you chase every method out there, you won't get good enough at any of them to make them work.

    efwebs: That's very true. In fact I have all my energy right now on twitter, but I can care for my adsense site at work (do some low level greyhat stuff for an online insurance company).
    I decided on tweetattacks to make some quick money, looked all easy was not afraid of anything, but then it turns out twitter got really pissed at spamming and is an azz since last week. I will engage them by just doing more accounts. Zenno is just great. I can use it in any area of online work. Support is a bit difficult at times, they are all nice and try hard, but at times you realize that the russian community seems to be far greater than the english one.

    first things first. stop reading WSO's as they will get you nowhere. second STOP reading this forum and buying all these tools promising to take your marketing to the next level and make you rich. yes they might work but you dont need them right now. you to to FOCUS and settle down on the method you think you can devote a few hours each day and do that for a month. then come back here and read, post, tweak and improve your method. good luck!

    What seems like a large task can be tackled efficiently by taking it one step at a time. Try not to become overwhelmed by the project that lies before you. Instead, take things one day at a time, and actually take action with the tools and information that you've obtained. The first day, you won't see any benefits. Nor for the second, the third, and so on and so forth. However, if you chip away at the task day by day, using your time efficiently, you'll see profits down the road. And, on that day, know that you didn't make money in a day; you made money in the months of work that you contributed beforehand. Think of it like this: Writing a 40-page paper in one night seems impossible; eventually you just run out of resources. However, writing a one page paper for forty days - that doesn't sound so bad, does it? The difficulty lies in doing said work without a 'guarantee' of profits in the future. Just remember, the smarter you work, the more you solidify the 'guarantee' promised by those proven IM methods.

    Fact is, I know I have too much stuff on my mind. The problem is, I don't know which of the methods works with rather little time (1.5 days) but instead benefits from any of the tools I have (btw, best spinner is on the list of my tools now too.)
    I'm pretty much independent from outsourcing stuff, I can masslink web 2.0, comments, bookmarks etc.

    Made plan up on the spot: Will do that twitter thing for a week, then I'll switch back to making more adsense sites.
