    Hi, let me tell you my story. About 3-4 months ago I found out that you could actually make big cash with IM. So I thought, why not? Lets give this a try. I started a blog though I had read that you are very recomended to start a hosted domain instead, the reason I didn't were probably because I didn't think that I would become any succesfull so it didn't mather. Well anyhow it was slow in the beggining but I kept posting and so on, today that blog gets me about $3-4 per day from fileice, I have tried adsense for over a month but it got me about 1-2 clicks per day with a CPC of $0.0X. Not even worth having the ads there.
    Oh right, I started another blog a 5-6 days ago within the health and disease niche, it has so far got 30 with no adsense clicks.
    At the point I am today I feel that all this is meaningless and if I in some way could sell my sites for a decent price I would do it, but thats right they are blogspot's, I can't flip them! Silly me doing blogs...
    The whole making money subject got me addicted, I spend whole days sitting infront of the computer just surfing BHW, googling, posting on my blog but it dosen't seem to give me any success, right?
    All this time I have spent for only $3-4 per day? Is it really worth it? What were I doing wrong to only get that small cash from that many UV?

    This is a shout out for help! Throw your ideas at me! What do you think I should do? I'm stuck at the point I am at!
    What can I use my blogs for?

    Appreciate all replies, thank you.

    Thing is, the way i view IM is like this. You are either stuck with 1800 technology aka doing it manually or you have 21st century technology , bots.

    There is a reason why people want bots for this or for that, see content is one of those things you really can't automate right(well you can have spinned articles). So for promoting you should be focusing in using bots to automate the promoting, whether is uploading videos to youtube or building backlinks.

    Your blog if it gets that much money just from posting and not promoting, then that means your content is actually worth it. Now you got to focus your time in bringing in traffic, no you will not make it big in IM if you just post and not promote your site. So to get away from filling stuck , you got to start thinkng of promoting your site and find the tools that you need to automate it faster once you find out what your trying to do.

    Thank you for your reply.

    My main blog has 140 posts with only copied content, well spinned once without checking the grammar etc, I have never wrote a unique article for it.

    I have seen shitty sites on flippa go for around $100. Is there any money to collect from just purchasing a domain, host it, design it and then selling it?

    well there is money in flipping turnkey sites, but if you can get atleast 50-100 bucks stable income on your site you could flip it for a lot more. But i think though that you have already enough content, i would just continue doing 1 post a week if you can and try to just promote the shit out of your site, upload videos linking back to your posts at your blog and build some backlinks you seriously need to ramp up the traffic then you will get experience on how to drive traffic successfuly to a site then you can concentrate later on in setting up more sites like once you have an idea on how to promote your first site.

    Flippa for example it wont work for you I think, you need real revenue to sell at a decent amount.

    Profit per month multiplied by 12-24 - so if you make 100 per month you could sell it on flippa for lets say $1800.

    Or at least that is my experience there. So not sure its worth it.

    Thanks, for a while ago I made videos for the blog, but my account got taken down and the videos never reached above 100 views, so I gave that up.
    Whats your tips of promoting the site?

    $1800, is ALOT of cash for me as a newbie :) If I got such a offer I would sell it for that amount. But you know blogspot, can't sell it


    However I'm thinking that a CPA company perhaps would be better for me as fileice only provides 0,1-0,2 for some countries for example india wich I get alot of downloads from, an example of this is yesterday 11 completed surveys and a revenue of $2.

    You mentioned that you use copied content. Stop doing that. Place some original content on your sites. If you don't feel confident in your writing skills then hire a writer. There are many here you could hire for a reasonable price.

    Sometimes you have to spend some money to make money...

    Well, the thing my blog is about is free downloads, each of these smal files are normaly paid. There are other blogs about the same thing, alot of them I'd say all of them just copy that content from the same site (the ordinary sales site). And the only keyword people use to get to my site is really the title of the post. I really don't find it necessary to write unique. Sorry for that bad explanation.

    Perhaps I got it all wrong?

    $3 per day = $90 per month = $1080 per year

    Now, instead of jumping from one method to another, try replicating that small success. Upscaling is the biggest thing in IM. In the beginning of my journey, 10 YouTube Accounts were able to make me $5 per day. Guess how many YT Accs I own now... :)

    I can see you are impatient. A blog doesn't have success after 5-6 days. It takes at LEAST a month to judge whether a website will be able to take off or not. If you are into building websites or blogs you need to be more patient, otherwise that market isn't for you.

    you really shouldn`t feel lost about it...
    ...look at it like a win and do not compare the little money to the big numbers. there are so many people here being happy about their first dollar. and it`s right to do so.
    ...in the end it worked out for you and it generates money. no one will get rich over night and often people do have to scale a working thing up a lot to let it generate a good amount a day.
    ...you should twist your method a little - especially the content side of things - and then get more sites out there. if you had ten sites earning 4-5$ a day you will stop feeling lost about it.
    let your glass be half full rather than seeing it as half empty.

    Thank you, your posts has brought me some motivation. I started a facebook fanpage and I'm planning to generate a couple of 1000's likes to it. I also planned to start making videos about for each post and promote them with vagex. But I'm not going to make the same misstake as I did at first (all videos on one account).
    So, do anyone know a good way to create many youtube accounts without having to verify by using a phone. Preferable a free method.

    Also I'm woundering if anyone could tell me how to make a facebook like page pop up screen in the middle of the site when someone visits it.

    Thanks BHH

    I did not bother to read the replies but you have totally missed out on the keyword research part which is essential for a blog especially when using Adsense.
    Use the search button and read the big threads (many replies).

    And don't use blogspot.. Register your domains with Namecheap and set up your websites with the web host Stablehost (I personally use them).

    you should find enough info on YT-acc`s on the board - with a little search effort...
    ...as well as people selling them - but be carefull with that if you choose to do so.

    what do you mean with "facebook-like-pop up" ?

    Some sites I have visited has like a small "like us on facebook" square popping up when you visit the site, you can choose to click on "like" or just close to continue browsing the site

    Your problem is, in order to make the "big money" in IM you have to treat it like a business, and a blog is not a business. It can be used as the front end to your business (i.e you're selling a product, you make a blog about the product, get subscribers, then use those emails to market to them over and over again, of course you get profit from the initial sales). Just making a blog, posting copied content, and putting some links on the site is hardly going to get you any cash these days.

    Treat it like a business and you'll make business money. Treat it like a hobby and well...
