I don't know what a good opener for this thread would be. So, let me give you a little bit of background about myself.

Background
I've been a lurker of the BHW community for about three years now, and I've yet to make a dollar over the internet. I am a programmer and a music enthusiast who mostly worked in a 9-5 environment.
About a year ago, I decided to start a company with a friend of mine (who I used to work with on several different occasions before actually planning to start the company). Unfortunately, he scammed me for a total sum of $5k (which has quite a lot of value in our country). But he also taught me a great lesson about my interactions with others (which I might open up about it in a separate thread, as it's not related to this topic).
Long story short, after a couple of years of lurking the community and two or three failed joint ventures, I'm here trying my luck again in Reddit marketing.

Objective and Milestones
The goal of this journey is to create a network of adult subreddits in different niches and monetize them using direct advertisements on a middle-man tube website.
The milestones are not clear, as I am not quite sure about the right time to monetize the network. Generally speaking, the number that I am looking for is about $2k on a monthly basis from ten subreddits.

What I've done already?
Nos últimos meses, desenvolvi um software bastante complexo para automatizar / semi-automatizar a maioria das tarefas que estava fazendo no Reddit naquela época. O software inclui vários recursos ajustados para conectar a indústria adulta à plataforma. Alguns dos recursos são os seguintes:
  1. Integração com vários sites, incluindo PH.
  2. Integração com vários centros de upload, incluindo RedGIFs.
  3. Editor de vídeo integrado para criar rapidamente pré-visualizações curtas e marcas d'água.
  4. Pesquisa reversa de imagens embutida (usando o Google).
  5. Postagem cruzada automática de uma comunidade para outra.
  6. Agendamento de imagem / vídeo.
  7. Capacidade de gerenciar várias contas.
E talvez muitos recursos diferentes que provavelmente não me lembro de ter desenvolvido, pois não são importantes o suficiente, mas ajudam na eficiência.

Nota: para ser sincero, no início, estava pensando em criar um SaaS a partir do software e, depois de ver seus recursos, decidi não fazer isso.

Além do software, nas últimas duas semanas, comecei um subreddit e aumentei para cerca de 20 mil membros (o nicho que não vou revelar, mas não é pornografia geral). Embora o subreddit seja bastante ativo em termos de upvote e interação, não há muitos posts para deixá-lo crescer naturalmente.

Nos últimos dias, também recuperei um software que automatizou a criação de contas, que escrevi há quase um ano. O software me ajuda a criar cerca de 25 contas todos os dias (durante um período de 40 minutos), mas não estou disposto a forçar muito o software, pois pode ser detectado pelo Reddit.

Há também um número total de 20 contas antigas restantes (dos testes anteriores), que ainda não foram aquecidas. Estou planejando usá-los para manipulação de votos (sei que é contra o TOS, mas estou curioso em aprender mais sobre os algoritmos do Reddit).

Nota: Ontem, tentei manipulação de votos e funcionou, mas hoje depois de tentar as mesmas interações, a postagem desapareceu do subreddit. No entanto, ele ainda estava disponível por meio de um link direto, e eu verifiquei que minha conta não foi suspensa nem banida.
Pergunta: Alguém tem alguma ideia sobre o assunto anterior?

A lista de tarefas
  • Melhorar o software e melhorar a eficiência da IU.
  • Melhorando o tempo de renderização FFMPEG. [Eu ainda não sei como]
  • Pesquisando outros subnichos para colocar os outros nove subreddits em ação.
  • Adicionando uma forma de monitorar meu progresso (talvez usando este tópico?)
  • Tente encontrar uma maneira de melhorar minha eficiência de edição de vídeo. (aquele subreddit sozinho leva cerca de duas horas por dia para manter)
  • Continue criando / aquecendo contas para mais tarde / ou raspe totalmente a manipulação de votos (ainda não consigo decidir, e quaisquer sugestões são bem-vindas, especialmente sobre aquecimento)
  • Automatizando / semi-automatizando o site

Conclusão
Com sorte, vou até o final desse projeto e começo a ganhar alguns dólares. Um ficará azul assim que possível.

respect on the fast growth, nice guy as well! Keep it up bro
Thanks mate! Wish you the bests too.
Sounds interesting. I’m following the post. May be will start something similar too. Goodluck
Thanks! Good luck with your journey
What is the Unqiue Hits number?
It's the number of people who landed on Chaturbate using my affiliate account.

I believe not. Currently, I'm not interested in selling accounts for churn and burn projects. Reddit is already a toxic place, let's not increase its toxicity! :D

I will be your huge fan! Can you dm me your subs? :D
Sorry mate! Currently, I'm unable to send you the subreddits.

The only advice I can give you is to start right away, don't hesitate to find the right time, it never comes.

Quick Update #12:
  • 20 pieces of content were mass-published in various subreddits
  • A new subreddit was created with the purpose of testing autonomous crossposting / LosPollos Advertising
  • I've worked a little bit on the website's appearance as the video page was quite ugly (don't get me wrong, it's still ugly, but at least elements stay in the page's bound and doesn't create weird scrolls :D )
  • I've also added one more ad spot on the website as I mainly drive traffic there. (this's until finding the right way to get conversions from an appropriate network)
About the feature that I've implemented yesterday, It actually helps! I haven't timed it, but the whole process feels much smoother. I've also realized that there are some random bugs here and there in the software, so I'll start fixing them tomorrow. (They're not major showstoppers, but not having to deal with random 504 errors would be great.)

Just kidding! Good luck with the journey! Please keep us updated!
No problem, mate!
Good luck dude.
Thanks!

Quick Update #13:
  • 15 pieces of content were mass-published in various subreddits
  • Two new subreddits were added to cover a broader audience
  • I've synchronized all of the appearance options (including sidebar widgets and rules) to create a more authentic subreddit network feeling.
Unfortunately, RedGIFs stopped working or has banned my uploads as I'm unable to upload anymore (it throws an error and doesn't save the post), I've created a new account but the same error was carried over. I might have to create another account using a different browser and check it again tomorrow (as it's not the first time their service stops working properly).
About the conversion/advertisement side, I'd mainly focused on building the communities then slowly integrate advertisements into them; therefore, for a couple of days, the earnings/hits statistics won't be available.

After downloading the video, I create a one-minute teaser and apply watermark if applicable, then upload to RedGIFs, and finally, post the link.

  • 15 pieces of content were mass-published in various subreddits
  • I've started working on a brand-new website solely to promote the LosPollos SmartLink.
    The website will be accompanied by a bot that will react to a certain condition and tries to direct the traffic to the website.

Quick Update #15:
  • ~20 pieces of content were mass-published in various subreddits
  • The development of the new website is going quite well. There were some minor mistakes that I had to address, which made me redo roughly 70 percent of what I did yesterday. But all and all, it's going great.
  • I've also fixed a bunch of bugs that I've introduced in the last version of the software, and hopefully, it shall run better.

Quick Update #16:
  • ~15 pieces of content were mass-published in various subreddits
  • For the new website, I've reversed engineered the read portion of the target site's API and created a simple intuitive wrapper for further use.
  • I've also switched one of my advertisements to ExoClick (to see whether the CPM differs), shockingly Adsterra provides a better CPM (so I've reversed my decision)
Unfortunately, I might not be able to work on this project tomorrow.

Quick Update #17:
  • I've worked on the new website for about 8-10 hours today, mostly coding, but I've also written a bunch of pages to make it look legit. Most of the APIs are connected and load content from the backend, but UI still needs a lot of work.
I couldn't edit any video today, due to the fact that my connection speed had dropped below 100kbps. I'll get back at editing tomorrow using my mobile data until this problem resolves itself.

With that growth, you should be doing at least $10 a day with los pollos. I can give you a review copy of my book if you want to test my way. Let me know.

Quick Update #18:
  • 15 videos were mass-published
  • I've continued working on the new website. Most of the user interface is done, but there is a lot more to complete
I'd also like to show my gratitude towards @thescrrr who was kind enough to share his ebooks with me, I've read them a couple of times, and I'll start implementing them in my project in the following weeks. Due to the nature of his product, it's not possible to share his twists, and I highly suggest buying his ebooks, if you're interested in knowing more.

Are you moderating all these subs with the same reddit account? Doesn't Reddit get suspicious?
