    Hey guys. I've been hanging around BTB's thread about Facebook groups for a little while and for the past few months, I've been dedicating a lot of my time to learning about Facebook group posting and have done extensive testing, with manual and automated processes. Around 4 weeks ago, I started making some money (around $200) then earlier this week, i found something that worked really well while testing. Although a lot of time was taken by testing, I made an additional $600 with 6 accounts on autopilot. A few hours of work then, watching my earnings flow in very nicely.

    The issue is, there aren't enough hours in the day. I've got a full time job and a massive community website & forums I run in my spare time. Like most people who are really into Internet Marketing, working a normal job can be a big struggle. The mind is almost always focused on how to make money next and taking every opportunity to look at the phone for an earnings update. I've had the hump for a few years but I failed at everything. I was simply inexperienced and would splash out money when I wasn't actually getting any revenue! My dream of becoming self employed died down completely at times. I was watching these forums like a hawk though and with the right opportunity, I would strike and with Facebook groups, I found a method which I had experience in already with the community site I run and something that I was more in control of, rather than waiting for the rank that never came on Google.

    Now, i'm ready to pounce. Those words, which are mentioned very often on here, 'scale it up' fit exactly what I am going to do now. The self employment dream is massive to me and i'll do anything to achieve it and get that freedom to travel anywhere and not be tied up to an employer. I've taken the next week off work and I've (almost) got 100 aged accounts ready, along with 100 UK sim cards and i'm going HARD.

    What i'm using:

    Wordpress site (ready to clone for any new campaigns)
    Massplanner (For scraping, account actions and posting)
    Facedominator (For joining groups)
    VPS, of course
    Private Proxies
    Prosper202 server for tracking how many times each account converts:
    and various other things

    The Kitty:

    Aged accounts from Shadowcat (Will have around 130 once my order of 100 is ready)
    Private proxy for every account
    60+ Facebook group posting lists
    1 campaign, which is converting well (Soon to be 2 + 'mini projects')

    The lists are loosely related to the niche and have a huge potential reach. I also have a few lists which are more niche specific. Accounts loosely related are lasting for a day or two, while some of the more niche specific ones are lasting over a week still. I'll always aim to have 3-4 of those accounts running but i'm not expanding further on those due to the limited audience of those lists. The bulk of the earnings will come from the former, which is focused on high volume / sending shitloads of clicks to my offer.

    Predicted Earnings:

    I'm averaging $100 for each the 6 accounts I used earlier in the week, posting to 100+ groups for each. I'll be able to maintain a higher level than that, along with consistency. Like I mentioned, the accounts i'll be getting volume from are getting suspended quickly as expected but I can get a double take in 2 weeks on most of those, after a temporary group suspension (and re-verification).

    I will be posting with 3-5 accounts a day (or even more maybe) and at least 100 over the course of October. I predict earnings of $10,000, with an investment of around $1,000. This should also give around a 3 month buffer for covering bills and the opportunity to go self employed, to work on more projects and increase my earnings even more.

    With IM, you don't know what's going to happen so these could be very loose. I might make even more or much less, we'll see.

    Most of the hard work will be within the next week and for the rest of the month, I hope to be laughing all the way to the bank :D I'll keep you updated, on this thread when I get the opportunity. Feel free to ask me questions if you're trying out a similar method. I won't go into many specifics, as there's a lot of info on BTB's thread and I've developed my own unique twist but i'll try to help whenever I can :)

    Thanks for reading.

    Good luck OP. I'm getting back into the game after several years out of AM. I'm definitely with you on how difficult it is to work and do affiliate marketing on the side. Luckily my occupation (web developer) actually really complements my side hustle but it still takes up so much of my time that I'm hoping to eventually be able to focus on AM full time.

    I'll be following your journey and will be waiting for updates!

    Wow man, you're going big. All the best.

    Do you mean each account is averaging $100, which is 6 x $100 = $600? If that's what you're telling and if you know that stuff, then it might be higher 4 figures per day.

    Yeah, that's the total from last Sunday to now. 3 of those were banned within the first day or two though.

    Good luck mate.

    I'm working on similar methods but at a quite smaller scale. I'll be following your journey, keep us updated!

    Hi, I like what's you are doing and I would love to follow you on your journey to achieving your goal. Have done something similar too but the site I was working on just started scraping earnings. I still have over 100 fb accounts with groups averaging 100-160 in each. Can I pm you so we can discuss on some things.

    Can't edit, so could a mod please delete the second post that says reserved?

    A first update. I'm in the setting up stage, which i'm devoting a lot of time to this week.

    25/125 new accounts currently set up and joining groups. As those who do this know, it's very repetitive but has to be done right, so group acceptance is higher and not to trigger the fake profile ID verification. Changing SIMs can be tedious too. I've got an A-Z folder for those, which corresponds to a code for each account.

    Going into more details. My main and only current campaign has 60 accounts, secondary/next campaign has 40 and the rest are TBD.

    Not getting much luck with joining groups. Had 5 accounts suspended already and i'm treading very lightly. Some accounts I can go crazy on Facedominator with but i'm still trying to work out at what point its safe to do so. I'm using the joiner for 15-20 groups a day on Massplanner but i'm anxious going over 35-40, as there's a trigger point there. I'm expecting to lose about 10 more accounts doing this throughout the week, while I test different variables to find out when it's safe to mass join but the good news is i'll have them back in 2 weeks once their group suspension is lifted and plenty of accounts to fall back on.

    I've got various accounts coming back from suspension (from the past month or two) and i'm posting with those but my conversion statistics are shocking. $24 (1 sale) with 420+ clicks. Funnily enough, that 1 sale was the very first one of the month ;) They come in bursts sometimes though so i'll lower any expectations until serious traffic starts pouring in. If anyone is wondering, I achieved 42 sales with 5600 clicks last month total (over $1000).

    I always start the first 2 or 3 days at joining 7 groups per day, and then on day 4+ up it to 27 per day. I've never had an account smacked when using a 20m-30m delay and sticking to 27 requests per day.

    Thanks for the tip! Got 2 more accounts suspended after I joined 25 and 50 groups on Facedominator (after 4 days). Looks like the blasting is very difficult now. I think slow and steady will be the best way.

    This means a delay of up to 3 weeks before the campaigns kick into action. Patience is an important thing to have and it's normally my weakness lol so I continue setting up the rest of the accounts in the meantime. I ideally want an account to have been accepted to 150 groups before I start posting. On the plus side, it's time consuming saving individual accounts in a text file and changing the format for Facedominator.

    My accounts status stands at 50/125 now. 6-7 days left of free time so i'm well on course. I'm filling in other time with a manual account I made for my first campaign and might give paid ads a mini test run, from the conversion data I have.

    Great thread you seem to have sussed this out already.:wave:
    Ive tried various offers in various sports niche but I just can't find the offer that the tight bastards on Facebook will cough up anything.
    Ive tried tickets, sports tv free trial, I've tried memorabilia, I've tried sports fantasy games and a few more.
    Do you think I should drop the sports niche?, I get decent amount of visitors but they just don't convert.
    Im resting between rounds right now and working on other things but I need to figure this out so I'm researching again.
    Though I would have at least a sale for encouragement by now, I've sent about 10000 clicks across 5 offers so far and post to 190 groups.
    wtf is going on

    which CPA networks you use for monitizing those accounts? Clickbank, Amazon or other CPA networks?

    Are you directing to your website first or just direct linking to the offer? I don't know about the sports niche. I want to try it at some point. Maybe it's too forced / too 'salesy'. How easy is it for mobile users? Most of the traffic from groups will be mobile so is the offer compatible? I'm trying to aim towards free trials where they pay just for P&P or services where they can get what they want but it 'lures' them into signing up to a subscription. I don't think the typical "here's what you can get, now pay $$ for it" will work well but i'm still a beginner with only one moderately successful campaign.

    I'm also intrigued about how you got 10000 clicks with posting to just 190 groups?

    One particular CPA network. I tried CB for a test run and made one conversion but it was a low sale and i'm trying to target the higher amounts ($20 per conversion at least).
