    So a couple days ago I started my journey in I.M. with a job placement website. I read a thread in the "Making Money" section of the forum and came across a thread by the user, ajpis. He described a method to use facebook groups to force feed traffic to his job placement website that has been monetized with adsense and indeed.com. I have added my own few twists to this method and have built my website. I am not doing any form of SEO on this website. I have yet to try to feed any traffic to this site nor have I blasted it or attempted to build any backlinks. Tomorrow I will start feeding traffic to it using buzzbundle and a few other tools I have up my sleeve! If any of you have any suggestions I would greatly appreciate them! Tools to use, other methods I can blend with this one, twists. I will gladly try many things and report back to you all with my results. Thanks again. I will update this thread as often as I feel necessary.

    Day 2

    Asked to join many different facebook groups.
    Posted links to about 30 pages and 10 groups
    Attempted to use buzzbundle however no success. Buzzbundle fails to comment to facebook every time.
    Looking for a craigslist scraping tool. If any of you have a tool I can use to scrape specific sections of craigslist that would be very helpful.
    No UVs so far. I must be doing something wrong.

    Day 3 -
    $0.22(Adsense)
    1 Email Submit To My List
    68 UVs, 224 Pageviews

    Day 4

    Still driving traffic with facebook groups.
    Would like to see more traffic
    Will begin submitting new content to website
    Run an Senuke campaign
    Attempt to broaden market and ad a review page to a clickbank product for a resume service.
    Not sure if this particular method is too saturated to make any decent money with it.
    This site may turn into an authority site if method too saturated. (Will do keyword research on it if SEO is necessary) (GOD I HOPE NOT)


    I am finding myself searching the forums and studying other marketing techniques I see both on here and when I spot them while I am surfing. Need to start making money soon. May put my voice acting skills to use here. Facebook groups are not getting the job done so I may look to youtube and other means of video marketing. Difficult to say because I am not comfortable with my keyword research on videos. I assume it is the same. I will treat it as the same and see if I can't find at least a bronze-mine. I am finding myself with an internal conflict while working on this project. I am not sure which direction I want to take and am fighting myself internally as to whether or not I should switch to a different method. I may put up more content and try to automate this method a little better so I can spend a little more time on another. Going to give it my best shot to make this job vacancies website work.

    Day 4 Update

    Fuckin shit. Site crashed. Had to re-upload my entire wordpress. Thank god I had a copy of it backed up. Always gotta think ahead. I kinda jumped into this method with a plan but it has evolved many different times since starting. I suppose that is because I gain confidence in one thing or I think of other ways I can market and how the content needs to look. I decided today that I was going to change the tactics up a bit for this website. I am going to make a separate website and facebook for each and every state in the USA. They will all be sub domains of the main site. ca.dsafa.com etc. etc. So today my site was down. Completely. It also happens to be the day I had a free trial of a traffic service for 100 UVs. Convenient right? So instead of actually being able to take advantage of the free traffic. My site decides it wants to show blank pages. The main site domain will be held for reviews and general blog action. It will also be my main hub for cloaking affiliate links as well as building a list. Was able to start building sub sites for each state today however. Also looked up some techniques on making some youtube videos I can try to rank for keywords and link to clickbank/CPA offers. Will use automated link building and SEO strategies to test this method and try many different quality video styles. These videos will be creative and appealing! This is not some, "Yeah I reviewed this product, and it was awesome. So go buy it." fiverr nonsense. I'm trying to bring the pain with these sites. dig into the depths of my viewers souls and embed myself there like a parasitic money gobbler. It can be done! Regardless I am getting stressed and discouraged. Mental toughness is definitely something I have. Still working to get over this wanting to do work and knowing what work I need to do but staring blankly at my screen bullshit. I think it is mostly because I second guess myself and second guess whether this stuff is all really worth it or not. Need to see some cashflow. More than cents every day. I have the skills. I just need to find my way. Tomorrow my goal is to:
    Build 2 more subsites.
    Make 3 quality videos!
    Upload said videos using separate proxies.
    Finish keyword research on products I can market to my job listings demographic.
    Write new compelling content for job listings site
    Upload new content and review page for clickbank product (not yet found) on my job listings site
    Outline method for driving traffic and marketing said clickbank product review

    I know its alot but I feel if i set a steep goal I will bust ass and get shit done. Thanks again for the support.

    Nice to see you are working this and thinking of ideas that are not "same old, same old". I know a little bit about that niche and would like to offer you a thought from my experience.

    Job seekers typically do not have a lot of money to spend unless you are targeting a higher demographic so if you are going to offer a CB product keep the price under 20.00.

    Update. Day 4.5 - I have no clue at this point.

    I haven't actually slept and have literally been busting my ass this entire time. Stress is my number one motivator. Always has been. No burn out. No stress when working. So, keep working, less stress. Weird I know. When life slaps you I suppose you gotta slap back... So I spent my entire time researching some new products. Built 5 new subsites. Also had an order on fiverr. I am a level 2 on there and the order was worth 20 bucks. Pretty awesome considering the gig took me 10 minutes to do. Probably less. Work smarter not harder. Put a 24 hour day in of smarter not harder and hopefully I can start making some money. Was an interesting day actually. My keyword research method is a solid one. I will share at some point. However, quick question. As far as rank tracking I find it incredibly rudimentary to manually measure the competition. An obvious skim over the top 10 but as far as looking at the PR, backlinks, SERPS blah blah blah blah blah blah... we've all done SEO and it blows. Regardless, I am looking for a quick tool that can help me measure competition. Traffic Travis has a feature exactly what I am looking for, however, I am not sure I trust it. Back in 2011 it wasn't so accurate. Yes I have played around in IM since than. Haven't actually took much action since my last endeavor... Funny story actually, 100% whitehat. Built an entire authority site on a crap keyword due to failing miserably at my keyword research than coming much later to find out that it was all a waste of time. Moving on. Dabbed a bit in some amazon marketing on pinterest. When I say dabbed I mean I put up two pictures. To my surprise within 10 minutes of posting said pictures I had 51 new clicks. Pretty awesome I suppose if it is actually accurate. Still got a good 10 hours before I intend to sleep. Feeling like a damn demon machine right now. NO drag on this guy! LETS GO!!!! Still got a list to finish!
    Build 2 more subsites. - Complete + 3
    Make 3 quality videos!- Incomplete
    Upload said videos using separate proxies. - Incomplete
    Finish keyword research on products I can market to my job listings demographic.- Incomplete
    Write new compelling content for job listings site - Incomplete
    Upload new content and review page for clickbank product (not yet found) on my job listings site - Incomplete
    Outline method for driving traffic and marketing said clickbank product review - Incomplete

    @BassTrackerBoats
    Thanks for that advice. Makes sense. Clickbank kinda has a weak selection for resume stuff in all honesty. I will see if I can find some other products related. Do a little more digging on the resume bit....

    @janinaherz3
    You're support is much appreciated.

    @cociba
    If I can find the fire and passion inside to do these videos I came up with a great idea for a long running channel of my own. Who knows maybe partnership later. Sky is the limit!

    Update

    Site crashed again. Has to be my theme. Taking a break from this stupid ass website and moving onto something else while I wait on my hosting support to figure this dumb shit out. I was able to get one video up and now trying to rank that video using Senuke XCR.

    Update Day 6

    Website is back up and running and now I have got to get some serious work done. Nothing further to update as far as other methods. Put up one video and currently trying to rank it. Not sure how to do video keyword research. Still double checking my research. Today I will be working on building more sites for the states I have not completed yet and hopefully find a clickbank product I can market on my job listings site. I am hoping I can find a good product that converts well. Will update again later today
