    When I first entered IM 5 years ago I blew a few hundred dollars on PPC campaigns that lost me money. From that point forward I swore I'd only use free methods of making money online.

    Well I'm done university now and I'm spending more hours in IM. I've tried my hand at the "free only" method up till now. In the past 2 months, I've been on it about 2 full days a week. I'm not happy with my results yet...

    Can anyone recommend 1) if I should start investing money again and 2) how to do it so that I don't fail again :p

    Thanks guys.

    Well thank-you for responding and for teaching me a lesson. But I want to know things NOT to do

    Eg: don't promote clickbank products with adwords... that's what I did and it failed miserably. I had a landing page and cpc was on the upper level of the spectrum high.

    Or maybe a general idea of where you guys have put money in and gotten results out. Eg: I bought a fiverr blast from this guy and it helped traffic

    Your monetizing adult traffic which is useless i wouldnt even recommend you continuing doing that , get into some other niche instead of adult traffic.

    It isn't clear on first glance that you want to start reinvesting in Adwords again. Now that you've clarified it, I can't be of any help in this department. Though I believe you should get some really helpful answers from Adwords veterans here on BHW :)

    You're right, it isn't clear what I'm interested in investing in. I actually don't know. Now that I found BHW everywhere I look there're money making blueprints... where to start is difficult. I do feel overwhelmed.

    Most of my hours have been spent on an niche adult blog that's converting poorly (15k uv a month = 400 clicks a month= $15) but I just found out that's definitely not a good niche to be in.

    More recently I've been content locking from one or two long-standing (3 years) youtube videos I have running. But the views just died to zippo in the past few days for IDK why.

    EDIT: And I've also promoted clickbank ebooks on niche sites that are long gone (the ppc days lol). I could do niche CB sites again but not with adwords obviously.
    EDIT2: 15,000 uv a month lol not 15 =P
