    So its been two months since I was pushing loadedcash and really making good money till they started shaving really bad...I tried a few other adult sites and they seemed to be shaving too while I was sending targeted adult traffic.I've always did best with adult and used that money to invest in non adult methods.Doing this I was making $1500 -$2000 a month.

    So now that all the adult sites are fucking most of there affiliates,i've been trying my own stuff and methods on here to try to earn and really spending all day on a method to get it work.My end result is $0.00

    This is just fucking insane...I'm doing my own methods,other peoples methods and working 12 hours a day to just get smacked in the bean bag.

    Don't get me wrong,i'm not broke....I had to go back to sandblasting rust and paint which I was hoping to not do.I do other stuff to make money...I'm really skilled with my hands so i'll always have work.

    But this internet thing is looking bleak.How far do you go before you hit your breaking point?

    Just needed to get that off my chest.

    That's so sad to hear mate. I hope you get some new fresh ideas and make some money on the internet rather than sandblasting and stuff because that's really boring!

    Only those who work the hardest in this industry will succeed pure and simple, don't stay stuck on things don't don't work,always keep looking for something that will work because its out there you just need to fail enough before you get there. The more hours you spend the closer you get yourself.

    For adult/dating niche - try these networks - ploose, adsimilis - you are less likely to get shaved and they have almost all the offers.

    Other than adult, try content locking - with traffic source - YA ( yahoo answers ), youtube - both have bots available in the BST section.

    This bears repeating. It is excellent advice. I have been guilty of staying stuck on the same things even when they aren't working, and need to tell myself to find other ways to market.

    Here's a tip: Stop lurking in BHW, especially in the lounge creating threads like HOT ASS, anyone in bands, and such.
    Instead, start your research and start taking action. No offence, but seriously.

    I believe it's more about working smarter, than harder in this internet game. Either twist things up or move on to another method.

    It could be your traffic and not the network. If loadedcash is shaving, I'd try going through a few cpa networks tho. Or get more traffic to make up for it.

    Is y.o.u.t-u,be canning your accounts also? They have been not so friendly to adult stuff in the past 3-4 months. I was making 4000.00 a month on YT but since 3 months now, dropped significantly, less then 75%. They deleted most of my accounts & this is using different IP's. My suggestion, Don't STOP! Try different things, stick to porn;) Converts better then anything else.

    As with any tried and true method, eventually things catch up to you and others jump on the bandwagon which causes your income to decrease. Unless you are constantly updating your methods/looking into other avenues, this is inevitable. I am at the point where my profits have dwindled down significantly, but because my method involves roughly 10 hours of work a week (and I enjoy it) and still makes me some money to be worth it, I continue to do it. Will this last until I am 85? Nope. But I am trying new methods every week, testing, and validating the results to see if they can be improved. Keep at it and hopefully you will be able to continue doing your Internet business (and sandblasting if you enjoy it and are making good money).

    It's all good man, this is exactly what you need to shock your system and get you set straight.

    First of all, enough of this methods and affiliate crap. It's time to start a business.

    Personally, I recommend drop shipping. It's got to be the easiest possible business to get into. Here's a step-by-step for you:

    1) Think up some products you know about and can sell online. Hint: Christmas is coming. Hint 2: stay away from Apple products, electronics, etc.

    2) Head on over to http://go.magento.com/ or http://www.shopify.com/ and get yourself an account. Just use a basic theme, it's fine. Register a domain... so far your costs are like 10$.

    3) Now, head to Alibaba.com and start searching for companies that will dropship the products you want to sell. Communicate with the sellers, check out their references, etc. Find out what your costs will be and mark that up by anywhere from 20 to 50% or more... depending on how much your market will bite.

    4) Now, all you need to do is get the material uploaded into your new Shopify or Magento Go ecom website. Ask your vendor for photos of all of the products, or "borrow" them from another website if you're selling something recognizable. Write up the product descriptions for everything yourself or outsource it. Get everything looking like a decent enough online store.

    5) Advertise. If you have to, make a few dozen new Facebook accounts and buy $5 vouchers off of Fiverr that will give you $50 in ad credits for a new account. I recommend against this as you need to learn to make it profitable anyway. Target your age and interest demographics that will buy your products. Keep testing different pictures and ad copy to see what draws people in.

    Believe me, you need to stop this affiliate crap and start owning your own business if you want to make real scratch. The above is JUST AN EXAMPLE of one of the MANY different types of online businesses you can own, but it's a pretty decent one. Figure it out and get on it!

    Following "methods" here will rarely result in making serious money. You'll just waste serious time before giving up and moving on to the next one.

    I agree. Look at my other post on two affiliate networks to avoid. IM isn't what it used to be like 3-4 years ago when affiliate networks didn't shave EVERY single lead. "Converts on first page submit" is a fricken lie anymore with every network. I'm tired of it.

    Give him a break man. Did you post this thread for honest advice or only to hear what you wanted to hear?
