    Hi,
    Finally took the plunge and put some money down in an effort to make some profit. This is a branch of another post on here regarding making some dough from scrapebox.

    • 6/7/11 - I finally bought scrapebox the other day in the hope of making some moneyz from it - 57$
    • 9/7/11 - Bought a VPS from xsserver - 15$ recurring monthly fee
    • 10/7/11 - Bought 10 private proxies from SquidProxies - 18$ recurring monthly fee

    Total: 90$

    Plan
    Make some money from selling blasts initially

    Action so far
    • 10/7/11 - Set up a fiverr gig, 10,000 comments.
    • 10/7/11 - Educating myself with ScrapeBox

    I think you make $3 per gig right? This would mean that I need, in the next month, 30 blasts to not lose any money. At the moment it doesn't seem profitable, but we'll find out.

    $4 per gig! Try to focus on the positive, which is how much money you WILL MAKE :D

    I have been doing this myself, so here is to our success !
    Doing ok myselfat the moment, so will be interested in how you do.

    Thanks.
    I think i'm going to do 2 separate gigs. One for spammed to death autoapprove links, 10k posts, and another for 2k posts of not spammed to death harvested myself links.

    Where abouts are you posting your gigs? I've done fiverr, will post on ebay for double the price I think, and then look around other sites and just post post post. If i make enough to cover a dedicated server and the gigs increase I'll move over to that next month.

    I have just been posting on Fiverr, but I used to use Ebay for selling various things.......I am thinking about posting gigs on there again , might be worth your time. I have tried other Fiverr clones, but you can't beat Fiverr because of the traffic flowing through it.
    Other things possible? on Fiverr.......SEO reports...hint visit Metafever's site :D Purchase one FB account with 1k friends from here BHW, and supply friends.
    Anyway good luck with your gigs.

    I am almost on the same boat ;)

    You already have a auto approve list for your 10K blasts? You are sure the list is working? I'm creating my list at the moment.

    You will blast on BE blogs? Or blast to 10.000.000 random blogs? With your 10private proxies i doubt you will get a WP autoaprove list for 10K blasts. I build my list on the BE blogs ;) No Fiverr gig at the moment. Good luck

    Still no fiverr gigs sent my way

    I'm working on my own AA list on wordpress at the moment. Still new to this so trying to learn how to use it too. Why won't 10 private proxies get me 10k AA WP blogs? And how are you finding your AA list? I'm trying to find a completely new list. Not wanting to harvest spammed blogs quite yet!

    Also, a question regarding scrapebox. I've been reading posts which say you should use public proxies for scraping. Whenever i've scraped public proxies (from the default sources in scrapebox or even using proxy lists in bhw) I get barely any results from google (must be blacklisted right?). Whats the problem with using private proxies? I thought the block only lasts 15 minutes then change over to a new one?

    Thanks

    Still no fiverr gigs

    Obviously I need gigs. I'm beginning to get the hang of ScrapeBox now. I'm going to continue scraping fresh AA blogs which aren't spammed to death (today I got a PR4 link on cnn.com, with an old crappy site I have though I haven't been able to replicate it :( ).

    It'd be daft to sit around and wait for someone to test out my services. I looked at other scrapebox gigs. I'm going to try and take tips from there, get the main points from their gigs across on mine and try to one up. So, I've created a brand new account. Now I'm going to get a video on the go ( off to learn Camstasia! ). I want my first gig my the end of the 12th, which gives me 2 days.

    So, how am I going to one up my competition, other than nicer looks of my sale and stuff?
    • Offer more posts
    • Offer more feedback
    • Offer a quicker service

    Any other ideas, send them my way!

    My experience with Fiverr is that just throwing up a gig won't get you sales. You have to promote is externally. Unless you are offering something very unique and high in demand, sales won't come rolling. Be lucky to get 10 sales a month with no promotion.

    How do you propose one gets promoted on fiverr, other than making your gig look snazzy?

    It does seem pretty competitive. Doable, but tough...

    u need to post at peak hours maybe..i got 7 gig orders with no promotion in 2 days..thats a different case i didnt complete a single gig :(

    if i use 10 accounts i think i can get atleast 8-10 orders ..but fiverr.idk i dont feel like working for 4 dollars..although 40 dollars per day sounds gud to me but it depends on the gig actually..my gig got orders coz i posted soemthing which was way too gud for 5 dollars maybe or idk..just sharing..GL

    First order is in

    Now just still preparing a good AA list, not the bog standard scraped ones but something actually worth the money! I didn't bother making a video because I have no idea how to use Camstasia. Once I earn some cash I'll buy a gig of fiverr for a video.

    try WF Forum. but they charge 20 bucks for posting sell thread.
    for fiverr try to make ur gig unique by adding something that others dont offers.
    also try contacting those other members on fiverr who are offering same gigs as yours.
    and tell them if they need hand to finish their orders mostly they don't but give it a shot they will pas on their orders while they are not available or on vacation ill or other reasons.

    build your own AA list then setup a blog put blog link in your signature and start posting on DP & WF or such forums.
    that will surely get you some sales.
    good luck.

    thanks for the replies.

    Today I've been away from the net and computer, and sadly my VPS restarted due to updates automatically - i hate it when windows forces a restart! Anyway, back onto scraping now. And yeah, making my own AA blog list. I reckon 5 blasts per AA blog list followed by selling it 10 times, thats already $70. I will probably post on DP (is it free?) and WF once ive built up some rep.

    shadecc3, I've yet to use SB to its full power i'm sure. still learning actually, but I'd say im alright with it now and have only been using it for a couple of days. definitely need a VPS becaue it just uses far too much bandwidth! Private proxies, not so sure about but I have them. Using public proxies to scrape the search engines though!

    Well, it looks like this effort has been a disaster. Turns out, harvesting your own AA list is TOUGH! Still trying to get that one order done...
