my domain renewal is coming up soon, but what prompted me to look at the summary is i am seeing some happening in adsense - a glimpse of hope, so to speak. what i did: 1, i bought FL and the domain (a .info) in around 11/2015. 2, i posted to my site in 2-3 batches. i wrote a few scripts to grab my contents from commission junction (which btw, i have not made a penny since i created the account a LONG time a go). specifically i last posted to my site in 1/2016, some 7 months ago. my scripts are not advanced. it takes me quite a few hours to get the posts posted. so i got lazy. 3, i created 13 IG accounts for the website. however, i only have the link in bios of about 5 IG accounts. i never got to add it to all. 4, i have been running FL since 11/2105. so far my follower counts are between 13-22k. i posted averagely a total of 20 posts so far for each account. so i am basically too lazy to post anything. my manual account (not on FL) is stuck at 12.9k for 6 months now. FL unfollow also almost stops working, so my FL/IG pace has slowed down quite a bit as well. 5, the domain is promoted SOLELY by IG. i wasted money on that software GSA SER or whatever and i am not using it. i have not used my tumblr followers. i have not used twitter. interestingly the cpc has increased from around $0.2 to $1 for some reason, and click-thru to my site seemed to have increased, all when i was not doing anything at all and the website posts are seriously outdated. obviously i am not bragging here lol. the morale is: yes, you can make money using IG; yes, you can use adsense on IG to make money; and most importantly, you can make it big (if you are not a lazy ass)! comparison to shoutout and ogads: i have made $31 from shoutouts. it's 'a lot of work' relatively. obviously i dont have a 1mil account to charge hundreds per post. unlike ogads, it's legitimate. you dont have to cheat people for money. you dont have to create a lot of accounts everyday, which is definitely not an interesting thing to do.
