    I made loads of bots with zennoposter for social media but I cant make any decent money with it and my computer is at 100% cpu and ram most of the day so its pretty maxed out and stoll only making a dollar or two a day.

    I reckon I could remake the bots alot more efficiently with python to take elss resources but that is gonna take a while and theres no telling that will result in more money when I do.

    How else can I make money with python. I mean not necessarily now but in the medium future in 6 months or so?

    I need 20 dollars a day in the short term.

    You could try freelancing offering your programming skills.

    I know it's not easy, but he could always try to analyze what the market expectation are and there are always simple gigs out there which don't require advance knowledge of the subject.

    You can still make money, but its very hard. You need credentials, projects, clients, sales copy, traffic, etc to start making money seriously. You can get lucky and have people who are looking for bargain deals come to you for work, but in the end they will stop coming and you need repeat clientele ordering from you constantly to make any money.

    Ye I've been spending pretty much all my time working on bots that don't bring me money and altho the leanring of python is valuable I guess I need to regulate my time better.

    If your zenno poster bots make money already, then scale up with VPS.
    I've seen a bunch of people saying they got their hands on tons of VPS and cannot make a cent out of it.

    I do have a second computer not in use my old one. It doesnt have much power but I guess it could do something.

    I want to make the most heavy zenno bots into python bots which run form command line instead of loading a full browser so then I could run them more efficintly.

    Specialize in something simple like scraping and take on very small elance gigs. You can easily become decent at web scraping in 2 weeks and start taking on small data gathering jobs.
