Hi guys, I'm back in this forum after a really long time away from IM, and I'm very determined to get back into the game and earn some $$$! I started out a couple years ago making money on Facebook (when it was way easier than it is today), earned a couple grands and then stopped for several reasons. I'm still at university and I'm supposed to get my master degree this year and, considering this, the moment when I'll have to find a job is getting closer and closer; I'd rather have a way to make money on my own than having to accept a shitty job just cause of necessity. Even if I don't earn a lot it could possibly be enough to allow me more time to find a job that I really like. Anyway, enough of this, and let's get to my plan. I set a target of 50$/day but not a specific deadline yet, cause I don't really know what a realistic one would be. I think 3 or 4 months could be enough if I keep putting the work I'm putting in the last few days. Im starting from scratch, both in terms of assets (domains, traffic, etc...) and money (that is, I'm just investing what is strictly necessary). I'm really a noob as far as IM is concerned, but I have great coding skills that allow me to automate most of the tasks I have to do with little efforts and I'm really confident that I can make it. Even though it may change in the future, as of now my plan is simple and only involves Tumblr as a way to get traffic. I made a bot myself which has some limited capabilities that are enough for me, and this is what I'm doing right now: Choose a niche and create a new Tumblr account Scrape hundrends of images from other related Tumblrs with the bot Schedule 300 (maximum allowed) posts into the queue again with the bot After this I basically have a blog running on autopilot for like some days. Besides that, I also make the bot follow 100~150 blogs per day and like/reblog stuff automatically. I'll repeat this process everyday, creating new account in several niches, and adding new content when the queue of the old accounts is empty. At the moment I'm more concerned about growing my followers base (since I just started a couple days ago) than looking for monetization opportunities: I don't have enough followers to make money anyway, and I'll get more into that when I'll have a decent amount. This is a screenshot of my most active blog right now: It's a NSFW blog, I have two different blogs in two different niches and I'm starting to create a couple more in this very moment (as soon as I finish posting this). I think that's all for the first post, I hope this can be useful for people who are starting out like me, at least for a motivational point of view (as hopefully I'll start getting some results). I'll be posting in this thread as much as possible to report when there's something intersting. Wish me good luck!
