    Ok folks, to start with im from the UK, and im 19 and a student studying Agriculture.

    When I was about 15 or 16 I started selling eBooks on eBay, made about £70 a week, I made in total around £3k, then eBay put a stop to that because some twat got me suspended for copyright, when I wrote the eBook myself and he said it was his, I fought it with eBay, but no luck.

    I went out of the IM business for a few years, and I started back at it when I found this place a month or so back.

    So far I have made about $16 lol, not much, $12.60 of that tonight lol.

    I am going to give you all a run down on what I have tried and what I am currentally trying.

    - I firstly started in Adsense, made over a grand, then got banned, I still have another 2 adsense accounts tho.

    - Then eWhoring, didn't make a dime!

    - Set up an eBook site, nothing!

    - Set up a video site and viewers have to complete an offer to view the video, made $1.15 in 20 or so days. 100 Page views using Web 2.0 - Still doing this, keep trying!! I also can't find any good sites that let me embed the vid to mine, I need a UK site, Hulu or watever won't work in the UK

    - A/C, but im in the UK, so I get performance payments, so it's shit.

    - Currently putting adds on GumTree and CL for phone contracts and when the buyer emails me I get them to complete a LoveFilm 14 day free trial and I get $12.60 - Did that tonight, 1 person out of 14 did it, im getting approved by CJ for a credit offer, that would be more belivable

    - Im going to give eWhoring another go using Rude.com and CU

    - Going to give Amazon affiliate and CL and Gumtree a go http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...ake-7-day-amazon-5-minutes-work-required.html

    - Going to give CL a go at Job add posting and CPA networks http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...y-cl-shoot-yourself-if-does-not-work-you.html

    - Going to try youtube http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...774-noob-who-arent-making-any-yet-method.html

    - Twitter and Promo Links with Crate Cash

    - Sharecash downloads and Youtube, still needs work to make it bring in some $$


    Does anyone have any tips or pointers for me. Any new methods, fast money methods or good eWhoring tips or sites?

    Well, If you made over 1k with Adense and still have two accounts, why not continue there and keep scaling? Learn from your previous mistakes and make sure not to repeat them.

    On another note, you said you tried AC but you can't make it work because you're out of the States and get performance payments only. I would read around in the AC subforum mate, I've explained many times over how to make the same money with AC (upfronts, partner calls, performance payments) as a non US resident.

    On the surface it sounds like you may not have focused tightly enough on any one method.

    With that said, I hope you get things turned around.

    Good luck!

    1-9 for your Keyword goodluck
    You are farther along than most people as you are actually trying stuff.

    You will hit on something that works.

    If I was to give advice it would be decide what you will concentrate on, get every ebook method available for it, and see what you can make work or change up so it does work.

    If you get stuck find someone that posts on here that knows what they are doing and ask them to help you fine tune it.

    Almost anyone on here will be happy to help you if you take initiative (looks like you are doing that)

    Thanks for the kind words guys.

    I forgot to mention, I am also using sharecash, curently made $1.62 lol

    As for the AC, I looked into the Performance payments thing, but I can't find the topic, can anyone point me in the direction of it?

    I will keep this updated and let you all know how things are going.

    Oh, and the adsense accounts, they got banned and I lost the $$!

    Hey bro, first of all best of luck - I'm been in this caper for a while now but it wasn't until recently that I have really knuckled down and tried to have a decent crack at it.

    Got some advice for rude.com, even though many say it's dead if you play your cards right you should be able to profit.

    -eWhore through CL/facebook/whereever - give it a shot and see how that goes, if this is the case and you think you can get someone to fork out $$$s to sign up, switch from the $1 per free signup.

    -When using youtube, NO# 1 TIP - don't just spam videos left, right and centre... If you have a hosting account, get a subdomain or redirect from a domain name straight to the sign-up page for your rude.com affiliate thingo.

    Then search and find certain vids with high views and instead of copying/pasting links right a few lines or a paragraph about the vid - say you ("saw her here"/"this has better vids"/"youtube is not for porn, go here") - and chuck in the link.

    Of course make sure you chuck a (dot} or </} in your link to make sure it doesn't get marked as spam. And preferably create a few youtube accounts to make sure you can pump out quite a few posts per day.

    People will visit your link (if they are not stupid enough to understand how to type/decypher!) - and i got a decent bump in my earning through this. Though you will only get back what you put out into this method...

    Then down the track, when it comes closer to you wanting to cash out - shut down the re-direction, chuck a few dirty pics/vids on the link with a rude affiliate and leave it until after you've cashed out. This way you are ensuring you won't get shut down by the AM.

    Anyways, best of luck, will be interested to see how you go mate. Any questions, hit me up mate.

    Yo adam, congrats on trying many different things. You learn a lot from that, even when you fail.

    I would second the person who recommended focusing though. Find something that suits your work patterns/method, and focus on making money from that. I think you can make money through any of the methods you outlined as having tried, if you are good at it.

    One more thing, I would give adsense another go. The beauty is if you get it right, and have a steady earner, this is pretty much passive income. Things like A/C and ewhoring on the other hand, require constant work to pay.

    Ok, so I have made a few more $$ with my video site and some using sharecash and Twitter with cratecash.

    Im mainly focusing on CL and my video site add ing around 3 videos per day, getting backlinks, submitting to social bookmarking sites and so on.

    Im going to knuckle down tommorrow and read a few ebooks I have on traffic and test the methods, then make a few videos for the youtube sharecash method.

    I think I will give AC a shot as well, im off for 5 weeks so I have plenty of time to focus on these things, but my main objective is to get traffic and conversions on my site.

    My record for traffic so far is 175 hits in one day, I know its not a lot, but im working on it and hopefully it will improve when I build my links, submit it to more sites and do a bit of SEO and try the linkwheel thing.

    Anyone recomend any good ebooks on traffic, I have a lot from the Downloads section still to read!

    Thanks guys
    Adam

    Yeah does seem like bhw should be clw these days :p

    OP Nice work on actualy crossing the 1st barrier of actualy getting started, but instead of trying methods left and right, maybe you should just focus on 1 and be a master of that ;)

    You dont want to be a Jack of all trades, master of none :p

    SURELY you can find something that fits with Agriculture.

    How to grow GIANT pumpkins. $7
    How to have a green, weed-free lawn without pesticides $7
    How to - oh frig - I dunno - How to do first aid on Cows, Horses - ( Chickens. lol)

    There's a ton of stuff you can write on.

    Then find FORUMS where people interested in that stuff go.
    If you can dream it- there is a forum about it.

    Thanks guys and girls, well I am focusing on one main thing, my tv site, I do about 2 hours work on it every day and try to add as many videos as possible. I just upload my videos because trying to find them on the net is a bollo*ks lol

    I spend about an hour posting on CL with phone contract ads, advertising my site ads, and other bits and pieces, but all the emails I get, I save them in an excel file :prof01: and then I can spam them in a few weeks haha, got over 100 at the minute.

    Then I spend a bit setting up new twitter accounts, and spaming twitter with my links, made $0.50 so far, in a few hours, it's not a lot, but better than nothing.

    Also, I would spend around half an hour reading up on SEO tips and tricks here to try and help my TV site.

    What is MAIL CRAIGSLIST?
