    I've been programming for about 4 years now and making bots for 1. I tried making money with them but I don't have a good enough technique. I've made Skype, Twitter, and Instagram bots but never really made a lot of money from them since its hard to find an affiliate campaign that accepts spam traffic. I've thought about spamming in different countries but haven't seen much discussion about it is it profitable? I see people say to sell my bots but how much money can someone really make of selling bots? Also if anyone needs a bot and has a good method of making money I would be very interested in working something out.

    Would you be interested in sharing your bots for help?

    I can share technical details about the bot but not the bot it self.

    If you can make a bot which makes $3 a month then it can be scaled (after you pay for proxies you will still make money) and you can make as much as you want.

    Make money with your bots instead of trying to sell it.

    You can sell a bolt in seoclerks, or create your own bot sales website.
    If I were you, I would start building a sales website and start buying ads to sell the bot

    Well there are simply two ways to monetize a bot.

    1 - Build it and use it yourself.
    2 - Build it and sell it.

    If the bot works well and there is good demand then you could make some stable income from selling it or more licensing it out on a recurring subscription type arrangement.

    It depends what you want though. I have made some bots myself and have decided not to sell. Mainly due to the fact that I don't want teaching noobs how to use/configure etc and support bugs etc as I am trying to use the bot myself to build my own business.

    It would be different if I was going to operate solely as a software vendor, in which case I would have a system set up for customer support tickets and bug reporting.

    You could look into building a repricing tool for eBay/Amazon Dropshipping/Arbitrage. There is some demand for that on here at the moment as the only solutions (for non devs) at the moment is expensive SaaS solutions.

    You could make some decent money with that I think.

    P.S. What level of income are you looking for?

    I'm new to the dropshipping game what do you mean by repricing tool? Something that goes on Ebay/Amazon checks the price that they are selling the product then the bot calculates how much to sell it for? Also I think I'm gonna go with the sell my bots as a subscription but how are the legalities with that? Only reason I would be choosing this route is so I don't have to constantly be thinking of new method of making money I can have somewhat of a "steady" income. As far as how much I wanna make I really haven't thought about that to much just wanna see how it goes.

    Well dropshipping with Amazon is where you list items on eBay at a higher price than Amazon. When somebody buys from you on eBay you order from Amazon and have item shipped to them directly.

    Amazon changes prices a LOT and if you don't handle this you can lose money due to the fact that your eBay item is cheaper than Amazon. Make a bot that will allow sellers to automatically synchronise the prices.
