    I have a survey site I'm learning how to properly promote. I get paid on surveys sign ups, and I have a Facebook page with just over 1,000 likes and a small Twitter account for it. I've written few articles for submission to article database sites, and I've seen good results from posting on craigslist.

    I have one parked domain that I set up an Instagram for, and I need to finish the tumblr account for and get that started. Very few hits so far, but I'm working on the content for those accounts. Oh, and I made a Pinterest.

    Hopefully posting here will be a good way to organize what I'm doing and maybe get feedback from others. Looking forward to when I learn enough to help other people! :)

    I'm not getting any conversions lately on my survey site, despite many more clicks lately. Posting on a particular classified site got me conversions, so I've started doing that again today, and try other classified sites as well. The 1,800+ Facebook likes aren't helping me out much so far.

    Haven't updated, but still around! I didn't have money to invest for awhile. I'm promoting the survey site across a large list of classified sites that I found on another part of this forum and considering a purchase of a MNS.

    Just out of curiosity...has the parked domain had any earnings since you started this thread? Did the parking company put any content on the parked site?

    I came here in an attempt to edit my original post, but it looks like I can't. Nope, both of these methods were unsuccessful for me. The parking company did put content on, and I used various sites to drive traffic...got a handful of clicks but nothing converting to $.

    The survey site was an offshoot of a popular survey site...a buy your own site option. They apparently aren't updating or working on the sites at all anymore, or responding to emails. Their dashboard stopped recording any hits/conversions after 12/31/2013, so I'm assuming they abandoned the project. Kinda want my money back, but...meh. Not bothering.

    Onward to new things...
