    Are you on the Slack chat? That's the easiest way to get support. You should check your email for the invite

    Are you getting any traffic to your site? Usually ads won't show up until you are getting traffic to your site.

    UPDATE!

    So I spent the whole day drafting 10 new quizzes. Tomorrow I will work on them and upload them to the site.

    That's all for now.

    UPDATE!

    So just as I was putting down the draft for a 7th quiz the notepad on my smartphone crashed. My plan was to draft 13 quizzes in total and then create the quizzes on my website.

    I was forced to clear cache and all data so I have lost everything and some other stuff on the notepad.

    I have restarted the process for drafting the quizzes I lost but this time I'll just draft and create the quiz on the site immediately to avoid stories that touch.

    For now I need to sleep. I am off to bed.

    Are you using any paid media to drive traffic to your site? Or only using free sources, like posting in groups?

    That's an inspiring story and helpful for anyone looking to start.
    You can also sell your quizzes on Amazon and Gumroad.
    Another couple of platforms for more revenue and ways to drive more people to your site.

    Hahahaha. You think?

    I persist in the face of adversities! :cool:

    Can you please elaborate on how I can sell quizzes on Amazon and Gumroad?

    UPDATE!

    So I was able to raise $35 for a Facebook ad campaign, the idea was to just do a test run and see how it goes, and unfortunately Facebook charges are just ridiculous so after spending about $12 and less than 200 US users I stopped the campaigns.

    I have contacted some pages relevant to the quiz niche I am trying to promote on Twitter and Instagram that have lots of engagements, 1k+ retweets and likes per tweet minimum, and I am waiting for response on their ad rates.

    My Facebook group ban expires today, the most recent ban ie ;), but I am going to postpone posting on Facebook groups for now. Too many bans are bad for the health. :p

    I was a bit busy yesterday so I was unable to post any quizzes to my site but I did draft one quiz though. I will update later on the progress of new quizzes.

    UPDATE!

    I spoke with my "investor", the dude I raised the $35 from, and he took back his balance because of the initial loss. He's actually quite new to the whole online thingy so I understand.

    I have started getting replies from Twitter and Instagram account owners regarding shout outs and posts and their rates range between $10 - $35 per ad. I will try some of them when I am able to raise some cash.

    I will keep contacting more account owners to increase my options. I remember someone suggested on @jamesdarby108's journey thread that he could offer account holders a more long term advertising partnership and I going to try that too. I am already working on the specifics.

    I was able to add 7 more quizzes, 10 questions each, bringing the total number of quizzes to 81. My target is increase the number of quizzes to 100 minimum for this week.

    That's all for now

    UPDATE!

    Been a while! Lol.

    So I have been really concerned about my thumbnails not showing up on Facebook and Twitter and I finally figured it out.

    Facebook recommends an image size of 1200 x 628 pixel and I recently had to reduce the images on my website so as to increase the speed of my site. So now my dilemma is uninstall the image optimizer and reupload high resolution images to rectify the issue or I leave it as it is and my thumbnails keep showing up blank.

    I have decided to go with the former option since thumbnails can also affect SEO. And that is a lot of work but it's all good. I'll have to find other alternatives for increasing my site speed then.

    My Facebook ban has been lifted as well and I have started posting ads again, :p, only this time I have reduced the amount of groups I post on to 5 max a day.

    I came across a strategy for selling affiliate products on YouTube by John Crestani that I think I can tweak a bit to drive traffic to my site instead. I'll start working on that today so I'll be simultaneously reuploading images and working on the new strategy.

    Let's see how it goes

    which video/strategy ar you talking about?
    how much traffic do you get with each facebook group post?

    edit: have you considered any deals with fb group owners? like pay 5$ so that they pin your post for a few days?

    I just started posting again yesterday so I am yet to check the status

    Sorry can't say much on the strategy for now.

    Yes I have and I'll work on that soon. I need to get the thumbnails up first before I run any paid advertising.

    UPDATE!

    So I have started adding high resolution images to my quizzes and quiz categories but unfortunately my thumbnails are still showing blank.

    The Facebook debugger is giving this message:

    "could not be processed as an image because it has an invalid content type."

    Simply annoying.

    Still working on getting more traffic. I have been posting ads to Facebook groups but what I do now is I only post on groups that come up on my news feed. This way I don't end up spamming.

    Income is now $12+. Lol.

    Will keep you all updated
