    Hey guys first off I want to start by saying that I've been doing IM for quite some time now & I'm sitting at around $20/day at the moment but I am seeking to scale my earnings.

    I'm not one who likes to desperately ask for help but having outside opinions sometimes helps you open your mind to new things and this is why I opened this thread.

    Being a decent programmer I have developed multiple bots but most of them end up unused.

    Here's a list of methods I tried along with my thoughts:
    YT Videos + CPA -> Quite a workable method but it requires scale scale scale - the biggest problem with this method is creating accounts and keeping your videos live but I could see this earning $100/day if one has the resources and the patience.

    YT Testimonial + Clickbank -> OK I only tried this with one video in a desperate niche but I only got lots of hops but no order form impressions let alone orders. I do see this working probably would be better if there was a website in the funnel.

    YT Top commenting + Content Locking ->This was the first method I used to make money with(I developed an awesome bot) but then YT became really strict and I couldn't create YT PVAs anymore;/

    EWhoring ->I know this is not supposed to be discussed here so I'll keep it short - this was an epic fail especially because of the restriction sites have nowadays.

    Media Buying -> God I love this, it's somewhat long term & very enticing but it requires lots of $$ to gather data & be successful I've had a couple of positive ROI campaigns but overall I lost a couple of $$.

    Authority Sites ->I have a couple of these, one of them is still in the starting phase and has lots of posts scheduled over a timeframe of six months in a niche I'm really interested in - we'll see how that goes.

    Offline-> I have a couple of Web development clients offline which I can't upsell or cross-sell anything to.​

    I know you're gonna say to stick to one thing at a time but I did - see I do IM full-time so I've had some time to try some things at the right pace. At the moment I'm developing my own custom pinterest bot & going to give that a try but I never really understood the structure of how to effectively tap into social traffic.

    I'm afraid that I may soon lose my source of income so I am seeking to expand & put my eggs into different baskets at the moment but I've been struggling so what I'm asking is your opinion on what you would do in my situation?

    I stuck with YT + CPA and scaled. You're absolutely right... with the resources and patience.. it can turn into a $100 a day method. I've seen this first hand. The problem I'm having most is just keeping fresh accounts alive. Aged accounts do work better but harder to come by. 30 HQ videos can earn you this much (how much I had up when making $100 daily). Right now still stuck at 22 videos that are boosted and 8 others that are still aging and getting ranked, but still earning decent. Good luck!

    Yeah youtube is easy to earn the first $1-3 but than it's a bitch to scale.

    Actually, youtube is not that hard to scale up, if you are not breaking ToS and law. :)
    The only issue I am finding with youtube is, that the number of offers/products is pretty much limited when you want outrankable competition and good search volume.
    But if you can make your videos stick, then it doesn't matter that much, because you can rank them over time.
    Just my 2 euro cents. :)
