    Hi all buddies.

    I don't do this very often but I'm writing this thread just because I want to share my feelings and to tell what was my experince.

    Nothing seems to work. Nothing sustainable. I'm sick of getting banned. I'm short on cash, and I'm unemployed, fortunately all the debts in my family are gone now (6 figures debts). I'm looking for work, but in the meanwhile I try to generate money. And I did, some money... very few money two or three years. Around 500€... and all the money that I've earned (digitally or IRL work) went to pay debts and, survive...

    All the time I've been mainly promoting adult CPA Offers from Crakrevenue. PPL, PPS. In Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, Sex.com, my humble try to Reupload porn Method, imgur, I tried instagram (with OGAds). And its always the same history, I create accounts, I do my scripts in python to automate the most that I can, but I can't handle it. Bans are so often, validations too. So I can't build something that is not churn & burn...

    I'm getting so tired of all this, SICK. So I started to think differently. I got to a point that I thought that always doing the same things won't help me make a dime. 'Cause they aren't working for me...

    I consider myself an smart guy, I know/can do things with python, php, sql, consume apis, I know http protocol pretty well. I read docs, I'm organized to the fault. I can scrape, I can automate. I do my own research, for tools, strategies and so, I have A LOT of bookmarks about IM. And I saw people with a lot less IT knowledge doing at least some money.

    I need. Something more stable / reliable. I started thinking about new traffic sources and things to do:
    • Email marketing (cloudhosted ESP's, and read a bit about SMTP servers/relays, MTA, MDA, postfix, Transactional mailing services, cheap alternatives like hostings with smtp servers) But I don't know what are the chances for an adult campaign to get send from cloudhosted esp's, I'll have to try and maybe not fail. Seems hard to grasp for adult, and a big topic.

    • Get traffic to landing pages from PPC traffic (advertising or media buying), I think I want to learn to drip feed traffic between days, not instant, to keep budged too... and to learn to segmentate that traffic for specific countries, ages or sex. I been prowling around adwords, bing, mediavenus, trafficbrowker, exoclick, ero-advertising, juicy-ads and plugrush, adludum...)

    • I've been thinking about doing a cool looking autopilot adult gifs site with infinite content and try to sell it on flippa or somewhere else.

    • I'm also considering on making an adult tube, with embeded videos (titles, vid, cats, tags, views, upvotes, downvotes) from a major sex tube and put ads, rinse and repeat. I'm actually designing database models.

    • Also making micro niche sites (authority sites), but when I think about that I inmediatly think about taking shortcuts, and automate it. But google... I think about gathering articles from content apis, and spin parts of these articles, synonymize some random words, and posting programatically to wordpress (with the rest api) But I doubt this could work... Google is smarter, and all the people say it won't work.

    • I even thought about making a dropshipping store, but there are so many caveats that I don't control. Ok I do the store but the traffic, I still has to drive traffic and I failed every time to drive traffic. Then there's more, ¿ how to maintain an store with catalog updated ? Proably with money its easier, but without it, looks hard. And how to handle support and refunds, returns... Nah, I don't see myself with this.

    • I made a script that spams teenchat.com but It haven't converted a shit... :(

    • I thought about leaving adult, and do some other niches. But I'm close to payout and wanted to keep struggling at least till I get the money.

    My starting goals never been much greedy, my point of view is to earn something stable, just passive money, even $5 or $10 a month would help me to get new goals (investing them), enough to pay a domain and a cheap yearly vps

    I would love to hear your thoughts about this, your feedback or advice

    Thank you

    It seems your biggest problem is spreading yourself too thin, stick with 1 long term method. At least you can easily make 40-50$ per day after 4-5 months of work.

    I'm very impressed with what you did in the past!
    I don't think you lack on motivation, just focus on one project and adapt to the situation (ban, violation).

    I don't get it... If you have all the skill to automate various accounts. Why didn't you use it to promote a long-term adult site you made. Build a review site, maybe even combined with a tube site, don't automate anything on it (like the content) so it doesn't get penalized. And use your skill to get a drip feed and promote it. It would rank so well in a year. In 3, like the time you wasted, you would probably see lots of good money.
    Maybe it's not that smart, I'm a newb, but that's what I would do with your skill.

    @jtrash01 I know what you feel bro. I'm on the same boat. Been in IM for about 4 years, made some money, yes, but currently got stuck hard. Trying this, and that, and getting frustrated cuz am also unemployed, but have some skills with SEO etc. Learned a lot, yet am feeling worse than a guy without a school cuz i dont earn shit atm. Was looking for some mentors but they all only spreading same things. We need some little push i guess, stay strong mate :)

    Focus on one thing and one thing only. By the way, why are you not selling landing page templates? You have the skills for that and good LPs are always needed.

    Mate,

    Here's what you should do:
    1. Pick one idea and i really mean, one idea. If its CPA, then that's it
    2. Stick to it for the next 36 months. Do nothing else. You will see people telling you that other 'money making ideas' are better. Don't bother. Keep working on your thing.
    3. Post here after 36 months about your success.

    You clearly have the skills, as others have said here; what you lack is focus

    Andrew Carnegie (convert his wealth to modern dollars and he would be far richer than Bill Gates and Zuckerburg combined) said that the key to starting out with super success is to put all your eggs in one basket and then guard that basket with your life

    You need to have one and only one project then obsess like a madman and throw the kitchen sink at it. If you have other businesses; turn the keys on them (close them down) and salvage what you can from them to throw into your main project. Play long game not short term spikes.

    WHy would you waste your time on 'methods', instead of working to build an asset, and a real business?

    These methods that are shared here look good on paper, but I wouldn't waste a second on them .. Why? Because they are temporary.

    You should have spent the time to learn SEO, built a little affiliate site, and worked on that. By now, it could have been a nice little earner. Something you OWN, something you could sell for thousands of dollars.

    My advice to you, would be to stop with the shitty little methods, and start working on something REAL

    PPC would be a good start, but that needs a substantial budget. SEO is the easiest to get into, with the lowest barriers to entry. You only need a few dollars to get started.

    Stick to 1 method and perfect it, only then once you start getting a little income invest back into other methods to keep adding more eggs to your basket.

    This helps because once one of your methods die(it will happen) you have back up cash still coming in. But the first step is finding that method thats going to get you started.

    You said your efficient in php/python so why not head over to the "Hire a Freelancer" section or build a website offering your services. And before automating any of the methods you have tried so far, do them manually, then you can determine the best way to automate the method without any major hiccups.

    The thing with these so-called mentors is they're usually peddling out of date crap.
    Can't count how many times someone launches their latest road to a zillion buck, showing screenshots from 2009 or even stolen / fake screengrabs.

    Think about it, if you had the perfect method to make all that much money, when they're claiming to earn $5k+ a day why sell it for $1k ?

    If people are so short of cash, there's enough workable guides on here how to earn $50+ per day, but they need work doing.

    If you're in the UK, got out and get a job at min wage = £7+ an hour ( approx $10 )

    Sorry to say this, but if you only made 500€ in three years while being able to automate things, I think you are targetting very bad.

    For knowledge you have I can only say from personal experience. I am also some 'IT guy' with good knowledge but can't count to find real stable job because I live in shitty corrupted country. I hope that is not case in yours, so first advice would be to try finding some stable real job using your knowledge.

    Second, if you want to do IM, I must agree with some articles I read in the past. They say that at first it's better to work with CPM,CPC because you will see, maybe small, but amount of money which will motivate you to continue and improve work. When you become good in that you can try affiliate. And etc... Some kind of path, or levels, through work and time we become better and experienced so we could try other things. Of course nobody must follow this, but it's easier.

    First you must back trust in yourself, then make some research and decide what is that you want to work, take niche, build network and pick up that easy money because you can do it. Good luck ;)
