    I will tell you my story...

    I am a boy ( I guess I can consider myself that since Im very young and with little experience in the area...) that has loved and lived with computers around since I was 2 or 3, that made me explore many things that casual pc users dont, like programming ( I really suck at it tho), design, create sites, foruns, etc...

    I allways had great projects in my mind and great ideas and tried to put some in practice but lacked most knowledge when I was younger...

    The project that I think made me a real webmaster was a Forum or a MMO that I created 2 years ago and today still exists and has over 2K users and 40K posts, which I feel very pround for...

    But foruns as most of you know dont make you a living...

    And this year I entered college ( or how we say here, university), my degree of course is related to computers :D, Im studying Computer and Informatics Engineering...

    The problem here is that to go to the best universities U have to move to the bigger cities, which I did, So Im currently paying 250? Monthly for the house and 330? every 3 months to be in the university...

    Until now my mother is supporting everything, but our country faces a really hard crisis and we're not different, my mother currently has 2 jobs just to help me pay all the monthly expenses...


    Now Im gonna tell you another story...

    This summer I got to know what Internet Marketing is about, not that I knew actually. I allways used adsense but that was it... I studied a lot of ebooks, read a lot of foruns and blogs, and got to know most methods, most types of Marketing, a lot of stuff really...
    The only one I put in practice because I felt it was easier to start was CPA campaigns, I started with CPA Lead and with the whole facebook thing... And well, I was amazed, I never saw anyone making so much money in so little time like that, and it was all my self!! I was so proud, I almost counter the money infront of the computer, I was happy, I could pay for everything and buy me good things... ( I made 900$ in 4 days) even the usual CPA Lead publishers at that moment were amazed, They asked me a lot of things, and I was only a newb trying to get their own methods to work ...

    But then the storm came, CPA Lead banned me, I had a long list of emails with my AM and he unbanned me days latter, I couldnt keep with my old cpa campaigns tho, so I paused for some weeks trying to get the money and then think of something new, the thing is that I waited, and waited, the NET30 limit passed by and nothing, 5 days later (3 weeks ago) they banned me for good with no explanation... My whole work of the summer was worthless at the time... I was devastated....

    Now Im back, stronger than ever, with strong convictions and a goal set...

    My goal is to make at least 400? to be able to pay for all the university expenses by myself, freeing my family of such thing...

    I made some investment, investments that students like me usually dont make, but Im feeling confident...

    All I have now is Scrapebox (bought), Marketing Samurai (cracked), WPRobot, 2 host accounts ( one was the 1$ free doteasy promotion), 6 domains and a lot of ideas and brainstorming to do...

    Currently run 2 MMO foruns, Im planning to finish a reward site, but not with the script sold in CPA Lead, I think this one is going to kick ass, I have 1 autoblog that was for my old CPA campaigns and I transformed it into autoblog to test all this things about auto blogs... and 3 more domains unused that I bought to make a network of Review sites and autoblogs...

    This is my story and I hope to succeed...

    That sucks that it went down like that for you, man-- I think this is a good example of the fact that we all need to diversify our businesses, from traffic streams to monetization strategies. When you are rebuilding your empire, use all of the knowledge you've gained to build diversity, from social media to CPA to affiliate marketing and everything in between.

    Good luck!

    I will not put all the eggs on the same basket again ;)

    I will try everything now... From adsense, to cpa, facebook marketing, clickbank, email marketing...

    I hope to get a bit here and there and keep growing so I can finally pay all my expenses...

    Thx for the kind words guys :)


    My progress:
    My first autoblog ( 1 month old) is earning 1$ a day only through adsense, thats not much but at least I got traffic and I can multiply this by 10 or 50 autoblogs

    I got many clickbank clicks but still no sales for me :/

    I will also start another kind of aproches to FB marketing

    And my 2 forums are my proud babies, users and posts keep growing daily

    Great job op.

    I wish I had started IM when I was still studying in college instead of now, making it my full time after graduation (did not look for a job after graduation).

    But I did not regret it, for all the partying and fun. Hehe...
