    Hi Guys,

    **Before you post anything**
    I am aware of the abundance and resources this site contains as I am going through it at my pace I ask that no suggestions be made for WIP unless they are specifically asked. I want to see how far I can search and learn personally but also kind of try to demonstrate how creative a mind can be via persistence or ingenuity. Know that I appreciate any help but only when I ask and if I feel cornered as I want to take as little hand me outs as possible.
    **Before you post anything**

    Since I'm new... like utterly completely new to online cash making I decided to make a serious attempt at making an online income. (Also because I lost my job in June due to someones bruised ego)


    So far the ideas are:
    -WIP Amazon and Ebay Dropshipping (Started March 2015), I was subscribed to a service to learn the ropes. (-$20/month)
    • March EOM Net Profit = -20
    • April EOM Net Profit = -20
    • June EOM Net Profit = -8.3
    • July EOM Net Profit = 1.3
    • Aug EOM Net Profit = 8.16 (Cancelled Sub)
    • Sept EOM Net Profit = -0.27 (so far)

    Net Total = -39.11

    Notes:
    Been extremely patient with this one, actually started last year just after Xmas. Since my two friends who brought me into this world makes $2,000+/ month I am not seeing the same yielded results and it's causing me quite a bit of stress because the advice given isn't very helpful both from the service I subbed to and those two. I understand it's something you need to build and I wouldn't mind but I am not seeing the same success and it seems insurmountable. Plus I was told by the service moderators and my friend who backs them 100% that I am too negative and need a constant positive mindset...(Tbh it feels like a socially engineered psychological trap so that people who complain about anything are seen as petty and therefore do not require to get answers that they are literally paying for.)


    -WIP Blogging

    • Inactive blog from 5 years ago applied for adsense (Got rejected)
    • Started 2 Blogs about 1-2 months ago (July-Aug)
    • Specific niches for both but blogs are located on blogger. (Yes I've read about hosting it myself but my goal for this was to get into adsense and if plausible minimal overhead)
    • Wrote some content for both blogs, but haven't updated since mid Sept (semi lost interest but got busy with other things)

    Notes:
    May continue when more time is allotted or I find more reasons to add to the niches.


    - Abandoned Human Captchaing (Request for suggestions on this one if it's even viable without an autosolver or underling referrals to solve for you)
    • Paid 0.00001~ USD per completed captcha
    • Given up, estimated time earning/ per hour < $1
    • Unable to find automated method

    Notes:
    Unless I can automate it to solve the captchas this is worse than a minimum wage job and a majority of the captchas are impossible to visually see.


    - WIP App Jobs
    • Subscribed to two apps that promise generated income via surveys
    • One app is mostly survey and price auditing, purchase maybe required for some but not a lot
    • Jobs range from $1-8, seem claims of $25 max

    Notes:
    Purely side thing, not intended main income status, however stories on one app were a woman borrowed a transit pass went out for a day and was able to toss her friend $20 and have enough to go clubbing later that evening. Although men and women have yet to buy me a drink I will settle if this allows me a monthly transit pass.


    -WIP Instagram monetization
    • Read more on subject
    • Create an Instagram
    • Potential downfalls... Anti-Social and I dread and don't much care for instagram let alone any social media.

    Notes:
    Getting an account started would be a task in itself

    -WIP CPA / Lead Generation
    • Refer to "Instagram monetization"

    Notes:
    Read about it 2 years ago, wasn't very interested but I was told that it can be a 100k/year thing and it's only intensive when you are creating a new campaign but once you get rolling it's gravy.

    -Abandoned Opinion / Survey
    Tried it on and off for 2 years
    Kept getting phased or screened out despite legitimate answers

    Notes:
    Tried the most popular opinion / survey sites but all of them kept phasing me out or screening me out and what's worse is the long form surveys which suddenly cut you off when your 75% into the survey and/or tells you that your not the right candidate or this position has been filled.

    -WIP Youtube

    • Adsense revenue for shock value videos
    • Unable to act upon account until after 6 months as per originated post requirements

    Notes:
    I have created a new youtube channel with the intent on following the method laid out by Blackhatworld but I am unable to utilize his method for another 6 months (March 26th, 2016). However I may use this in between to potentially even generate some content in between to suit my dropshipping purposes.


    My primary goals is to "slow the bleed" as I like saying of my rent and if traction willing for any of the WIP, actually pay the rent in full and not worry about it and give myself enough longevity to actually start surviving and then thriving.

    I have managed to do the following:
    -Set up youtube channel for future use
    -Read through as many and more dropship threads, finding little useful information that I already know myself
    -Ate pop tart...then went back to sleep
    -Woke up to get my 10th sale after nearly 6 months of freakin manual posting on Ebay but thanks to my mis-calculation (tax charge) I lost a mere -$0.27, although I can cashback it I am not relying on
    -Brainstorm more item ideas to post on Ebay
    -Briefly read and touch on instagram, still cringy towards even starting one but if it yields any sort of income I'll get right on it once I have a full understanding
    -Contemplate setting up secondary youtube account as to not put my eggs in one basket.

    I have managed to do the following:

    App Jobs:
    Did single job at local store, walked there saved $3 transit fees and lucked out on the return trip (operator just let me through)

    Net Profit: $3.50

    _______________________________________________________________

    Instagram:
    Made an account learning interface and potential programs to help

    Net Profit: $0

    _________________________________________________________________

    Twitter:
    Set up account and made 15 tweets resulting in 1 follower, 2 engagements.

    Net Profit: $0
    _________________________________________________________________


    Amazon and Ebay Dropshipping:
    Listed a few more items

    Net Profit: $0

    _________________________________________________________________

    Current goal for time being:
    Twitter - Interact and build generalist following for future use and monetization
    Instagram - Same Deal with twitter but figure out interface a tad more
    Blog - Potentially generate some more posts, potentially make about 20 or so posts related to myself then gauge analytic to see if I can't monetize a bit and if it proves true will hire a creative writer on BHW to generate content for it.
    Dropshipping - Chipping away.
