    Hey all just looking for some advice not really sure what to do now that twitterfeed has shut its doors

    The basics of my money making project was using amazon rss feeds with my affiliate feed imbedded that would automatically post to twitter.

    I would then host giveaways .. usually outdoor related items providing incentive for people to retweet my amazon posts to enter my giveaway and a random user would get selected.

    I began making a steady yet, not brag worthy amount of money that it was worth running the twitter page since it was making some profit and required minimal work.

    I then moved on to hosting giveaways on my website, but people would have to enter their name and email "building my list" to enter (also required email validation). The website also had adsense

    I have a twitter account of 18k followers that would continue to retweet my amazon posts so this continued to pay for the giveaways and still make me some profit.

    On OCT 31st, twitterfeed shutdown and the lowest option I could find is a service like it for $10 a month, but this would essentialy leave me with enough money that it wouldn't be worth my time.

    I was wondering if anyone had some ideas on where to go from here, as the outdoor industry is pretty crappy to monetize using ppa and the clickbank products are low quality.

    If you are contemplating methods where the profits from which are low enough that losing $10 a month in expenses is not worth your time, then you should really find other avenues, don't you think?

    I'm still trying to learn, and was asking suggestions or direction. As with anything in IM simple twists or things overlooked could be what takes you from 0 to thousands. Was hoping for advice, but thanks for contributing nothing.

    I provided you with advice, as well as a direction. It may not have been the advice you wanted to hear, and it may not have been the advice that you can follow word for word and turn your financial state around regarding IM, but it was advice nonetheless.
