    I tried all the methods like twitter/porn upload/pinterest and I always get mass bans before I make any sort of money. I will be getting to about maybe 4 or 5 dollars a day then I get mass banned.

    You say make more accounts but it is like a leaky bucket if it is riddled with holes it will never hold any water.

    The accounts take a while to gain steam so it is fighting against a strong tide. They just get destroyed before I can make any money with them.

    Of course I use proxies. I am coding all day every day 7 days a week I take a break to watch an episode or two of startrek in between to maintain my sanity but the rest all I am doing is coding. and I have fuck all to show for it. The skills are good of course but I NEED FUCKING MONEY to pay rent.

    Glad to see your attitude towards IM is so great :D... I have rent too, looks like we got a few things in common. EDIT: OP, Just message the member STE_Fishkin, he will help you out.

    Maybe you should get a job coding somewhere and in your spare time, try and figure out a way to make some money with IM.

    Less pressure and stress of having to make money to survive will allow you to be more creative...

    If you have to "watch an episode of star trek to maintain sanity", then you've picked the wrong line of work.

    Those who are successful tend to find what they do so exciting and invigorating that they're thinking about work when in the shower, thinking about work when out with friends and generally can't wait to get back to work :)

    Find something you enjoy and stop focusing on making money.

    Here's a quote from Richard Branson

    Code:
    "Above all, you should work on building a business you're proud of. This has always been a motivator for me, from my Student magazine days, through to our latest startups today. I have never gone into any business purely to make money. If money is your only motive, then I believe you shouldn't launch the business at all."
    He's also been on record saying those who do it just for the money will fail. I don't meet too many people who are all about the money and successful. I can't even think of a single person I know off the top of my head like that.

    Everyone who has the "I WANT MONEY MONEY MONEY" attitude tends to be financially poor.

    The higher up the rung you go the less people give a shit about money. There's a lot of misconceptions and false ideas out there, but most people watch too many movies like wall street and the wolf of wall street and think those people are indicative of the rich and successful. They're not. They're in the minority, and when they do reach success, if they don't change, they tend to either lose their money or they have very very stressful/harsh lives.

    What I've found is, the more money someone's making, the more they are interested in things like people, interesting projects, being creative, building and expanding something, creating something.

    Take a break. Stop spamming. Get a job and have your bills/food covered then make a 5 year plan broken down into 5 year vision, year 1 plan to make that vision a reality, 3 month plan to make the 1 year a reality, 1 month plan to make the 3 month a reality, weekly plan to make the monthly a reality, and finally, daily plan each day, with 4-6 main tasks per day. Then sit down, do task 1 and you've taken the first step towards your 5 year dream. Keep doing that and your 5 year dream will be a reality.

    Stop swearing and start thinking and earning..you are only as limited as your creativity and attitude, tough times dont last, tough people do, during tough times those lines are very hard to swallor but theres alot of truth in them.

    Maybe your coding skills aren't up to scratch? You either keep grinding or try something else. If IM is too hard for you then go get a Job.

    You tried all the immediate money methods. These methods aren?t that easy without some quality internet marketing experience. You should either try MeatHead?s blogging method or Adrain?s different social methods to get on with it.

    Sounds like you're just being too aggressive with your promotions on the accounts. Find something less spammy you genuinely care about to promote.

    WTF OP? You need to cut yourself some slack here.
    Don't juggle between IM and your coding skills. If your really good at coding, get a real job or get a try working as freelancer. May be when you have enough money to support yourself you could try IM. Just pick a thing and stick with it!

    What exactly are you coding though? I've been in a similar position because of my need to code an entire one size fits all IM platform. I say need but it was more an I want to do IM but if all else fails I'll be a pretty decent developer. Its been a slog, but now I have a ridiculously fast and efficient 'thing' that runs ecommerce, blogging with bells, tube sites, XML import spin and repost to social, content locking etc and that can be extended so simply. Yes it's taken time and I've lost money in places I could have been earning on something short term but I believe in long term success which doesn't come overnight. I've learned a lot as I've been going, I've had frustrations but overall things are working well because I've had a strategy. I've also got an incredible code base to show all the people who keep harassing me on linked in if I do ever need to get another 'proper job' - be under no illusions; to date, I've worked harder to make this work than I've ever worked in my previous jobs and I've had some big responsibilities. Keep going but have a strategy.

    Here's a small tip:

    Make a bot that checks all the items on the "Buy Items" page on csgowild, copy all the names, delete duplicates by itself, make it check 1 by 1 in steammarket for major price differences. The website bugs every few weeks and 1-2$ skins go for 20-30-40$ for several days, find it early and you'll be able to make bank.

    Made 400$ in 1 day 3 weeks ago, a 0.30$ skins was at 35$



    Make this and share with me the program :D

    It's tough to hear it but I would always say that you should be in a stable job when starting with IM so you are not reliant on the income from your efforts and so you are able to put some cash into methods that work. I've been working with a few methods (twitter mainly) and have yet to see a return, but I am building these accounts slowly - and am able to do so because I don't need money from it right now.

    IM takes hard work and is trial and error. Everything I have ever read about making money says you will fail more times than you succeed, but you will learn on the way and (hopefully!) fail less.

    My advice would be to do your best to find a regular paying job and be able to do some IM on the side...

    I understand what is the problem with you,you always need money in hurry and without learning well,you expect lots of money will come to you.

    If you are that good at coding,make one program that can bring you some heavy bux.
    necessity is the mother of inventions bro.
    Don't take your struggles as failures.If you do ,you eventually get depressed and start using curses on your post titles :p .

    Finally, I don?t have to spend hours trying to figure out how I am going to pay my bills. How? Do a quick Google search for ?Super Simple Bot? to find out the answer.
