    My journey to 50$ per day(starting from 0)

    let me start off by saying that although I've been lurking this forum for almost a year now I'm still pretty much still a noob when it comes to IM.
    That's why I decided to just go all in and even if I fail at least I can say I tried(although failure isn't an option :D).

    What I will do:

    1. Honestly this isn't a journey to make me millions, even thousands per month(although it's very doable compared to some very talented posters here). What I will start off doing is growing my Instagram account, which at the moment has 90 followers. I will be using a bot that I have in python to follow/unfollow people and like pictures. I realize botting isn't the best option but it's just to make me those first 1000 followers to help me grow naturally in the future. I've read some other instagram journeys here and it seems that the best thing would be to create(buy) several more accounts all in different niches and grow them using proxies. Now I'm not a programmer so this will take me some time to make myself, I could buy followliker but I want to do this without any costs(at least in the beginning).
    2. My other method involves google adsense which I already have experience with(getting around 100$ per month from my sites), but has suffered a lot in december when they deducted 50% due to invalid click activity. I will try to drive organic traffic to my websites and increase click-through rate.

    So adsense and instagram will be my focus points. This isn't a get-rich quick journey, it will probably take some time to start making steady profit.
    But I do expect to be making somewhere around 500$ a month by july.
    I welcome any questions as well as advice from more experienced members.

    Good luck bro. If you got popular on instagram you can also monetize it with CPA. Ogmobi is good network for mobile traffic.

    Good luck! My 12k account just sold its first ever shoutout. Wasn't really expecting it since the account is still small for its niche. Just be patient and you can do it too!

    Thanks everybody for encouragement, it seems botting is going to be a bit harder challenge than I previously thought. The thing is I have to write a crawler to help me follow/unfollow using some awesome web applications, because I can't really use the Instagram API(It's only for businesses now and they check manually).
    Adsense is adsense :p, receiving payment tommorow, can't tell the exact amount but they really did a number on my CPC and I'll have to seriously reevaluate my membership with google since they don't seem to care about small publishers.

    Update:
    I havent done much these days, been trying to write a quality bot, but since I'm not a skilled programmer it's gona take some more time. I paid for a 30 day instagress membership and it's going well, my instagram is now at about 1200 followers, and growing(follow back method) about 200 followers each day. Once I hit 10000 I'll start unfollowing and growing the account naturally. Will also purchase some proxies(or VPS) once I get the bot set up so I can grow multiple accounts this way. I will put my adsense websites on hold right now since they keep on reducing my cpc and maybe I will focus on amazon affiliate website if I have some spare time.
    COSTS:
    Hosting - $14
    Instagress - $10(for 1 month)
    PROFIT:
    Adsense - $3(today)

    Will do a major update once everything is set up and I have a clear idea what direction I'm heading.

    Good luck. How are you driving traffic to your site? Your Instagram profile is too small to get the 3$ per day?

    No the website used to get traffic from google, now I still have paid traffic, but as I said it's not turning a significant profit.
    My instagram is stuck at 2000 followers, probably because of shitty photos I posted.
    Next to do: manually scrape best photos online and have my bot post them daily.
