    Everyone knows my situation in that I was left with a load of debt by my ex - and have been trying to make a go of IM to turn things around for my childrens sake. Last year I was involved in a method using Amazon in which we made them around £250k of profit for which we were expecting around £18k (approx) of commission - they closed our account, I received nothing and somehow struggled through xmas! Now this year Ive been working on monetising youtube videos with adense only to find that yesterday my adsense account has been closed (no real reason given - I wasn;t doing anything blackhat!!) and my youtube channel can no longer be monetised.

    It seem the rich keep getting richer and the poor keep getting poorer.

    God only knows how Im going to do xmas this year!!!

    Rant over

    What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. You'll figure it out and find your way sometime. Keep at it man and be cautious. Don't do something that you work hard at that is a gamble with your account staying open and getting paid.

    Thats realy bad news man, Wish i could could help you out and get you back to recovery but most of us on here are in the same boat hoping for the perfect solution to come along 18k is a huge amount of loss. Maybe next time make the money on your own and then you know where you are with it all & you know for certain that anything questional involved was not down to you.

    I know things get tough sometimes. Alright lets turn Christmas into a positive. People are buying allot
    of stuff this time of year right? Okay well find items you think you might could sell for a good price like
    on eBay. Get paid for the item and go out and buy it. The ship it to them. After you get some profit you
    can focus on buying a stock of items.

    Hope this helps and good luck!

    lol, with that amount of knowledge, no way you are going to be hungry...get another momentization, try cpa or your own product. the problem is, you are putting it on one basket.

    The rich get rich in the first place because they work harder.

    Shit happens... all you've managed to do in an ENTIRE year is work on a few YT videos and trying to monetize them with Adsense?

    Honestly, you will not find one person on this forum who has been successful who hasn't gone through way more shit than that. I don't even have an Adsense account, it got banned years ago, and honestly, it makes no difference to me as there are 1000s of other ways to generate an income.

    Hi,

    My personal advice to you would be to take your knowledge and experience of IM and then build a business out of it.

    Not a fly by night affiliate campaign with all your eggs in a couple of baskets, but a dedicated 'authoritative' business model.

    Any monkey can thorw up a youtube video and make some money.

    It's time to evolve :)

    Start by doing some cpa, then move into your own product. For one reason or another YouTube either got enough flags on your Adsense account to ban it OR they found out you are from a country where they won't pay out. I would suggest just joining a network and getting paid for views that way, you can always submit to one of the lower end networks to start earning from a YouTube video. As for anything else, you got the knowledge now go out and find a way to make money.

    Now you say that you had about £18.000 worth in commissions coming you way, the account was closed and you just left it at that? My dude, if i was robbed of that money, and i was sure didnt comit any breach against their T&C, i would be banging at a lawyers door within 5 minutes of getting my account suspended.

    I agree with the posters above who are perfectly right when saying this has been a learning experience but man, you sure let go of that money waay to easily. I mean....£18k ?!

    Bundle your methods of utube + adsense and amazon success to a wso ebook and i guess you can sell out a decent amount of copies easily!

    don't just rely on adsense , mix it up , work on 10 different methods to make money : pinterest , instagram , affiliate sites , CPA ...
    try any method that you get your hands on , and automate when you can
    My tip :the real success is not how good is the method you are trying , it is how fast you can do it over and over again (AKA automation)

    Thanks for all the feedback guys! I totally understand what you are saying about all eggs in one basket but - I wanted to get one method working and then start to investigate other avenues. Meathead I wasn't having a pop at people like yourself I was merely talking about the big boys like Amazon and G etc!

    I made money the quickest by simply selling my services... I was able to show clients that I had the abilty to rank for keywords they were interested so I started working with them on the side while I worked a real job.

    Then I took a job working for a company handling major universities and did that for all of 3 months, then one of my "side" clients basically "bought me" to work full time for him and now I make a handsome salary, with bonus potential, company paid medical and paid time off. Keeping in mind he HAD no company before I started ranking his sites.

    What I am getting at is you have a set of skills that some people do not have, others have a set of skills or product that you do not have. Merge these things together and they can work out for you.

    All of my clients came by way of referrals, I fired them all now except for the 1 I work FT with and I even turn down work now.

    This is the type of attitude that creates success. Think of it this way...Everyone only has but so
    much money in their pocket. You have to find a way to show them why they should give it to you.
    The world is one big apple pie. Grab a fork and get your piece.

    Stop being an affiliate. Start selling your own products/services and use offline marketing not just online.
