    Firstly, I'm not like 90% of the people that start these threads who expect everyone to give them there secrets and what not.

    I've tried a few things, referrals mainly and made a few thousand £'s but that all dried out a long time ago with thousands and thousands of competitors.

    Currently I'm working on a Tumblr to eventually try monetize Sexytattooedgirls tumblr c o m been playing around with that for about 2/3 weeks and getting some good traffic.
    Also Freebiejeebies which I'm sure most of you are familiar with Freeapplemerchandise c o m but that's not really getting any where even tho it's highly ranked on Google with several keywords. Made £68 from that in 3 months :(

    As I'm currently unemployed and have all the time in the world I have nothing else to do other than try and generate revenue from IM.

    If anyone could give me some tips or ideas on what I could try and do I would be very grateful.

    maybe outsource offline SEO? mini niche sites? CPA works good.

    Why not check out the "Money Making " section on here? Makes sense for the type of help you are looking for. :p

    I've spent countless hours reading through threads, there's just so many different ways I just don't know where to start.

    The freebies thing I have 4 referrals and 101 uncompleted, I can't seem to gain the traffic to the site despite ranking on the first page of Google under several different keywords with 521,000,000 results.

    Obviously search engines aren't the only way of generating traffic but I cant find any other ways that have worked for me.

    Another thing I've been playing around with isn't working, even though I've got near enough 10k targeted Instagram followers and about 3/4k targeted Twitter followers (about 11k random) for it and I'm seeing maybe $50 a month, when that's got to be taxed and converted from $ to £ it's not worth it. Been working on this for far too long than I should be and no matter what I do it wont improve.

    With that I just can't work out what I'm doing wrong, I've seen people doing the same thing and have roughly the same following as me earning $1000+ each month. I'm very engaging with my targeted followers too.

    I'm very serious about wanting to learn IM and generate revenue from it.. As I said in the original post I have all the time in the world to learn.

    Not sure if you have seen it already but go check out this thread on email marketing. I started up with this method and have made around $200 so far. It takes patience and lots of testing to get results so don't get discouraged if nothing happens right away. The only thing about it is you need some money to invest in it for it to take off.

    You can also try making a website. I started out with a website about dogs with some adsense ads then gave up on it. Just recently I checked and I am still getting a few bucks each month from the adsense on the site so if I went back and optimized it I am sure I could make more. Making a website is relatively cheap and if it is about something you like it can be easy to find content for it.

    The two most important things are to start doing something and never give up once you start it. Too many people just read the method then never try it. Don't get down if you are having a bad day/week/month with your method, it always gets better. I have had tons of shitty days where I just wanted to give up but I have stuck through it and am now doing better.

    Good luck!

    Why dont you try PPD sites and youtube? That should give you some decent and solid income for sometime.

    I started doing that but I haven't even got 1 visitor to my Tumblr from it, I'm probably doing something very wrong.

    Unfortunately at the moment I have very little money to spare, thanks for sharing tho!

    I have no content to sell and I can never seem to get very good traffic to my YouTube videos, (sometimes no views)

    Read read read more threads. Stick with an idea and approach it at every angle before giving up. Any idea can make money if you approach it at the right angle.

    I wrote this thread earlier today, maybe it'll help:

    Just read your thread and it's very motivational!

    I've read countless threads and currently have 9/10 bookmarked/

    The one thing I'm working on at the moment is ranked on #1 #10 #11 on Google.com and #4 #6 #7 on .co.uk on 3 competitive keywords and it's been like that for 2 months or so but no where to be seen on any other search engines. I'm literally seeing 3/4 visitors per day, think it might be time to move onto something else or I'm doing something very wrong to not get the traffic.
    I also can't gain any Facebook like or YouTube views! The only thing I've managed to gain is 16,000 Twitter followers and 13,000 Instagram followers and that's just by following people.

    First of all continue reading and learning. That's the biggest thing you can do. Secondly, there is not quick fix make money method. You made money initially and then you lost it cuz you found more competitors, by your original post. Now, you're not making much. Instead of trying all kinds of methods, work on building a successful business with what resources you have.

    If you don't have much money rite now, as you say, the you should try this. Do some niche research. build a sustainable website. drive traffic to it through SEO and Social Media initially and then other methods. Create and sell a product or sell some affiiliate stuff. Scale this up.

    THE MONEY WILL COME. Have some faith in your ability and work on creating value and building businesses and you will succeed in IM. This will work for you well since you currently have loads of time in your hands.
