    I honestly can not really afford scrapebox as a business tool. My site makes... alright sales (1-2 a week sometimes none), it is getting better, but with a standard 2x markup on most my products, that means by the time I order another supply I have made no money, and then you can subtract shipping costs. I have just recently raised my prices by a dollar or 2 on some of my products.

    So, my profit is razor thin (if I want to by more supply, which I do) so my question is. How can I sell a scrapebox service on fiverr.

    I'm not asking how do I post it, I'm asking how do I get customers. I have had scrapebox services in the past and it seems like no one even ever sees them.

    I understand $57 for SB is not a lot, but that is quite a few sales from my store.

    I am quite lucky my friend can take care of the server bill (rents out to other sites) or else I wouldn't have a store at all with this business plan.

    It's going to take a while before you have enough experience with ScrapeBox to be able to scrape a decent sized Autoapprove list, so it's probably best that you just either buy an auto approve list from someone else, or simply buy a scrapebox blast and use the urls in the report.

    After that, you can just list any number of backlinks on fiverr - Some people do blasts of 10,000 links or more and they get loads of sales, but i've found i can just list 1,000 backlinks and people will still buy that, then as you get more and more positive reviews you'll get more customers.

    I did no advertising but it took a couple of weeks before i had my first sale, a month and a half later and they're rolling in every other day now.

    I actually did buy a 10k backlink blast so I'm set there. So you think it would be a good idea for me?

    I just changed the permalink structure of my site (much more SEO friendly now) so I need to work on it again.

    Here is another question. I am currently working on getting a few RDP servers. Could I have more than one instance of the program running? One for my site on an RDP and a customer on a server. Or will my account be banned or something, it would look an awful lot like sharing.

    Yup it's definately a good idea.
    You get $3.90+ (not sure exactly how much it is after paypal fees) per sale on fiverr, so you'd have to make 15 sales to pay off scrapebox, which shouldn't be too difficult if you offer great customer service and get some positive reviews.

    It's fine to run more than one instance of scrapebox, you just copy and paste the whole folder, but you can't run more than one instance of the same copy - I have 5 scrapebox folders, all named 'Scrapebox - Copy 1/2/3/etc'.

    Ok I see, so scrapebox doesn't care how many people and IPs are logged in? Just need to keep them in separate directories for a mechanical reason.

    Well I am going to find some tutorial videos first but then I think I will buy it.
    I get the footprint thing, I need to learn how to sort by PR and stuff.

    Also what sites does SB support. I was watchign a year old video that said it can not post to blogger.

    It obviously supports wordpress. What else?

    Unfortunately you will need to spend some time getting used to it. And it is a lot better to scrape your own AA List.

    Remember althoug you will pay $57 for the tool, you are going to need some private proxies, even for testing the Auto Approve blogs, 10 is fine for this but the more the merrier!

    10 proxies costs around $10 on here, but you can normally get offers on bigger amounts. Just try to remember this is an extra cost involved.

    That's a good point:

    IM in my experience is the pure definition of, 'you have to spend money to make money.' I was in a similar position to you originally - razor thin budget - and my sites suffered as a result. I have 3 domains that are sitting there and 'maturing' because they're rubbish - I put the time in but didn't have the money for software like Scrapebox.

    You're going to need to sit down and really map out a solid budget because honestly, you're going to struggle without these tools. In the end I forked out around $400 for all the tools you can think of - AMR, SB, TBS, SeNuke etc - and just focused on learning the bare basics for all. It was a solid initial investment but my first site back since buying them all and implementing a better plan is now in the process of breaking into the Top 10 for the 15 Main Keywords I'm targeting (and the site is only 27 days old.)

    Moral of the story mate is - you've got to spend money to make money. Sure, outsource a few blasts here and there but Anton is right; you'll need Proxies, hosting, domains, SB, BMD, AMR etc etc if you want to make a legitimate tilt at #1 and have a healthy, diverse range of links to your site.

    Take a day or two and put the SEO on hold - the Internet isn't going anywhere. Draw up the most efficient budget you can and think really hard about how you can conjure up at LEAST $200 as an initial investment.

    Oh and if you do decide on Fiverr Gigs, make sure that a) the description is WELL WRITTEN and includes a video - that should be a non negotiable - and b) for the love of God don't sell your services as offering testimonials; if one more of those show up online I'll scream.

    Godspeed and good luck!

    I think you are at a disadvantage without such an indispensable tool as scrapebox. Scrapebox will pay for itself ten times over once you know how to use it, but buying it with the idea of selling services on fiverr is a bad idea until you know the software.

    Scrapebox works at such a rate that private proxies will be chewed up and spat out quicker than you can find them. You'll waste countless amounts of hours gathering proxies only to have them die hours, if not minutes, later.

    You use private proxies to post, public shared proxies to harvest links and such.

    Though it would be interesting to see a study on someone who only uses public proxies nowadays to harvest and post...I'd imagine the list of active proxies would have to be huge...but they wouldn't all necessarily have to be googlepassed I don't think (except the one's you're using to harvest)

    you mean because of other users abusing the proxies? and getting timed out?

    Ill try to acquire more RDPs and see about setting up proxies. I know one of them is incredibly slow.

    Scrapebox on Fiverr is kind over-saturated. Scrapebox blasts won't work because every seller is doing it there unless you cna differentiate yourself or blasts edu and gov links.

    In the shortrun, I don't find scrapebox very profitable on scrapebox. I find it more profitable for my own sites for ranking though.

    one advantage I may have on fiverr is I can make a fantastic motion graphic video for the service... IF people actually get a chance to see it.
