    Hello, I have been reading and lurking on this forum for about a month now, and I need some help with what I should do next.

    What I Have Done So Far
    I first was interested in flipping domain names so I read a bunch on other forums and such, then I bought a few domains, none of them were any good and I ended up losing about 30 dollars from that.

    I decided that domain flipping was no longer profitable, so I explored other options, which is what led to me finding this site.

    I lurked and read all of the top threads and guides, and decided to set up a blog and try to rank it. I found a health niche, set up a blog and posted about 6 articles on it. I built some backlinks on my own, but I also purchased a few fiverr gigs. Somewhere along this path I purchased scrapebox, which was a mistake. I also bought a proxy service and vpn. This set me back about 150 dollars. I was excited due to some natural traffic, but once I was more knowledgeable I realized that I had made a mistake. I had thought that I could beat the top 10, which were sites like mayo clinic, and other authority sites. When I read more I found that this was harder than I initially thought, so I kind of gave up on the blog. It's receiving about 1k or paid traffic a day, which is generating nothing.

    I then tried out a method that used Craigslist to promote cpa offers and such. I basically asked for writers to write reviews, then when they emailed me, I asked them to install an app to give me a sample review. This was promising at first, I made about 8 dollars in a week, but my Craigslist posts started to get flagged, and my new posts didn't generate even over a dollar a day. I didn't meet the minimum payout, so no revenues generated here.

    Next I tried to use instagram to promote clickbank/CPA offers, but I found that gaining followers is harder than just following a ton of people every day. I got 2 accounts up to around 309 followers, then stopped.

    That is what I have done. In total I have spent about 230 dollars and have been paid 15 dollars. You may say I quit everything too early, but I feel like I had to stop investing my time in those because they were doomed to be failures.

    What I Am Considering Doing Next

    I am considering 2 different things to do from here. The first would be using YouTube with either clickbank or CPA. The second is starting a new blog in a Niche that have already found, this would be primarily monetized with adsense. My goal is to be making $20 a day. I have 2-3 hours a day to work on this.

    I need advice in what step to take next, and any other methods that would work. I have read a lot in the forums, so I have a intermediate knowledge of IM, but I don't know what methods are outdated, and which ones still work.

    Thank you,
