    Hi everybody
    I have been following post in here for a few weeks and wanted to share my experience.
    It has been 8 months since I started trying to make money online and have had zero success.

    Untill two weeks ago when I started making money on fiverr. I have made a little under $200 in the last two weeks. YES!
    Now I know that it can be done I feel that there is no reason that I shouldn't be able to make enough money to live of it.

    So now I am going to post my ideas, ask for comments and let you know about my progress.


    Successes
    Right now the only ways I am making a little money is on fiverr and adsense.

    Fiverr
    On fiverr I am selling youtube subscribers and am getting an average of $12 a day.
    I have thought about using other gigsites but I don't know which ones are good. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Adsense
    I have created a site and have put up adsense.
    By now I have only made around $0.5 but I am hoping that it will pick up as the site gets bigger and recieves more traffic.


    Ideas
    I have a few ideas on how to increase my earnings and to also make sure that I have multiple income streams.

    Selling my ebook
    I have written an ebook that I am trying to sell on my site and on fiverr.
    No sales so far. I would like to use other ways of selling it but I havn't really any experience doing it. What would you suggest? Amazon? Clickbank? A publisher? I would love to hear your input.

    Affiliate products
    I have also integrated amazon affilate links and affiliate links to other sites in my website. I am also hoping that there will begin to come sales from that when my site becomes bigger.

    Youtube promotion
    I have thought about doing youtube videos to generate clickbank sales. Are any of you doing that? What are your oppinions?

    Article writing
    I have written a couple of articles and submitted them to yahoo. They haven't been approved yet. What is your take on writing articles?

    Fiverr
    I have thought of other things to sell on fiverr. Does any of you know of an automated way of getting twitter followers or facebook likes? Do you have any ideas to what I could sell?

    Squidoo
    CPA
    Reselling fiverr gigs for higher price

    Does any of you have any other ideas to what I could be doing? I am not an expert but I am a quick learner.

    Hi there. I'm doing pretty much the same things as you. :)

    I've been selling YouTube subs / likes / views @ fiverr. I made about $100 when I suddenly stopped getting orders...Well after that I tried reselling only 1 fiverr gig @ ebay. That was about a month ago, and today I got a order. I had totally forgot that I put up that gig on Ebay. :D Made $6.50.

    I've also been doing some ppd @ YouTube. I got $1.20 on my first day, and then my Sharecash account was banned for some reason. I'm now trying to get accepted at Fileice.


    Yeah, ontopic. You could start with micro niche sites? I only got one that makes about $0.20 / day. Not that much, but great practicing seo :D

    Hi.
    Thanks for your reply.. :)
    I have actually made a couple of micro niche sites and they have both started generating very little traffic. I am hoping to see some improvements and convertions. :)

    What are you using on the ppd sites? What could I upload that people would like to download? (I would prefer not to use anything illegal or anything to do with porn)

    Thanks.. :)

    Well I've been uploading ebooks, like lose weight and stop smoking and so on. I also uploaded some fake files, like youtube bots and twitter bots. :)

    I have a problem though, I can't seem to get approved @ fileice...any ideas? :)

    Hi
    I just thought that I would post my update.
    Overall I am glad with the way things are going. I have made my first money online ever. That is GREAT.
    But since I began to make money it hasn't accelerated. It has even begun to slow down a bit. So now I am feeling a little discouraged.
    I know however that it is just a hill I need to push myself over. That is why I have made this post. To keep myself motivated and commited.
    If I can make $200 I can also make $2000 and later $5000 :)

    So far my earnings for this month looks like this:


    Adsense - $10
    Fiverr - $204

    So far this month - $214

    Goal - $5000
    Amount needed to reach goal - $4786

    Very good man. I think you should also try youtube and CPA and you will do very well with your goal.

    CPAinfinity and Stronger ads if you go with BHW networks. If you want otherwise, go with Peerfly and Adscendmedia. That should help you get accepted fast.

    It's funny I just thought about using other gigsites as well to get out to a bigger circle of costumers. :)
    Does anybody know some reliable gigsites?

    Hi.
    I wanted to post an update to let everyone know how I am doing. :)
    Things are looking much brighter. I have climbed over the first hurdle and I am very optimistic again.
    That might be beacuse I keep getting more and more orders on fiverr. A lot of them are even repeat business. I make an average of $14 per day now. :)
    It might also be because I have found a way to almost completely automate the process of getting and distributing the subscribers. So overall I think I am using between 10-30 minutes per day on fiverr. I like that. ;)

    Now I just need to find a way to make those $14 into $140 and then I am almost at my goal. :D

    I have also made my first youtube video promoting a clickbank product. I am then using youlikehits and a bot to give it a lot of likes. Hopefully I will begin to see some real traffic and conversions soon. :)

    My earnings this month:
    Adsense - $10
    Fiverr - $312

    So far this month - $324

    Goal - $5000
    Amount needed to reach goal - $4676

    Hi
    I am now closing in on the end of August and I want to post my updates.
    There has been a big change in my techniques. I am no longer selling subscribers on fiverr even though I have reached $400.
    When I got up to 20-30 active orders it became too difficult and time consuming to keep doing that. Instead I wrote my method down in a guide and am now trying to sell it on fiverr.

    But besides that I have begun using my new free time on my website www dot quickerlearning.com

    I am earning a little on Adsense and I am trying to sell various affiliate products on there.
    But the thing that I am most exited about is that I have finished my ebook and am building a targeted list by giving it away for free. I already have 16 subscribers to my list.

    I hope to get a big list very soon and finding a way of monetizing it as best as possible. :)

    So far so good on my first month. :)

    My earnings this month:
    Adsense - $20
    Fiverr - $399

    So far this month - $419

    Goal - $5000
    Amount needed to reach goal - $4581

    Hi all

    I am sorry to have been so inactive the last month. But I am back now.
    There have been some major events since last.

    In my last post I said that I wouldn't be selling subscribers through fiverr because it was getting too time consuming.
    But I did miss the daily mails sayin "Congrats. You've got paid" so I decided to have a bot created.
    After a lot of searches and 1 guy trying to scam me and another guy actually scamming me out of $150 (ouch) I found someone who made me an amazing bot. Everything I need to do to sell subscribers on fiverr is now FULLY automated.. So I am back in business with a new gig and so far I have earned $45 this month. Bujah!

    Other than that I am getting a few other sales on fiverr now and then and also some clicks on adsense. I keep adding new SEO optimized pages to my website to increase traffic. So far I have 13 pages and have about 30-45 unique visitors per day.
    My list is also groing. 38 persons have now downloaded my ebook and subscribed to my list. Once I hit 100 subscribers I will begin sending out mails with clickbank offers or something similar.

    As always, any comments and suggestions will be very appreciated.. :)

    Here are my earnings so far:

    August - $419
    September - $29



    My earnings this month:
    Adsense - $2,32
    Fiverr - $49

    So far this month - $51

    Goal - $5000
    Amount needed to reach goal - $4949
