    Hello guys


    I have been a silent reader for long time. I have decided to start involving myself on the forum from now on. This is my journey, more like a diary for myself, to see how I do on daily/weekly basis. And offcourse, hoping to get some insight and suggestions that will benefit me and you at the same time.




    About my journey:


    It actually started back in August 2015. I bought 10 proxies from Squidproxies and MassPlanner with all of the additional modules and started experimenting. I am a "take it slow" guy so I took on the whole thing pretty laid back. I never did anything in Social Media before so I needed a lot to learn.


    What I had back then:
    10 account on each of the platforms aside of Tumblr. Added my Tumlbrs to the mix a month ago. Purchased Tummblingjazz and started botting.
    2 weeks ago I raised the bar, purchased 15 more proxies and registered 15 additional Instagram and Twitter accounts.


    Current stand:
    25 instagram accounts
    25 twitter accounts
    50 tumblr accounts - I just purchased another 25 tumblrs
    9 Pinterest accounts - one got banned in the meantime
    8 Facebook accounts - 2 got banned


    I also have 9 Google Plus and 3 Linkedin Accounts, not focusing on them too much.


    Websites:
    I have 4 websites that are connected with these accounts.
    1 of them is planned to be monetized with Adsense. The other 2 with amazon and some other affiliate programs. And the 4th one is an ecommerce - Shopify and Aliexpress dropshipping.


    What I did until now monetization-wise:


    Tested. A lot. Tried just about anything to see how it goes. Earnings are almost not worth mentioning.
    I earned 50$ on Clickbank via FB Group posting method. I earned 20$ with Ogads cpa on Instagram (with 2 accounts). I earned 15$ with adsense. And 14$ with amazon.
    I earned 200? by selling traffic via FB Groups. I used my connections to affiliate marketers that I have thanks to my other business I do ( a specific SEO service for German market - dont ask what, I will not tell :)). I offered these group postings to some of them and they bought some traffic, to test out. I would say it was decent, they were satisfied but not thrilled. But I do some potential in it.




    Instagram:
    My biggest Instagram account is 43k, growing 600-800 followers daily. I stopped follow/unfollow at 38k as the growth rate is good enough and dont need following to grow.


    My smallest account is at 500 followers - it is a new account, 2 weeks old. I am taking it very slow with the new ones.


    Pinterest:
    My biggest account has 15k followers. I must admit I dont get pinterest. I had almost no visits from it to anything I pinned. Only once, 1 pin got half-viral and it got like 200 visits daily to a sniply link. No money earned and the visits drained out after a week or so.


    Twitter:
    Grows very slowly, brings some small traffic amounts. My biggest account is at 9k.


    Facebook:
    Lost couple of accounts. I joined lots of groups, 700+ on some accounts.


    Tumblr:
    Just starting out. See some potential in it. Will try to drive tons of traffic to my adsense site via these blogs. And will also try to do the same with my Shopify site.

    Objective:
    My short term objective is 50$/day. My long term objective is 500$/day. I know I can reach that within some reasonable timeframe. But I dont set any rigid dates. Would like to get to 50$ until the summer though :). Once I get to these 50$, I will just rinse and repeat to the 500$. So, it is all about these initial earnings. If they come, you analyse what you did, you scale it and you get to the higher earnings.


    That is it. I am sure I missed something, so with the help of your questions, will fill in the gaps :).

    Good luck on your journey. For what its worth, Pinterest is not like others because their traffic is more residual rather than instant. Read up on smartfeed for more info. Also, traffic is mostly women, so food/fashion/crafting/women-things are the ideal niches.

    Thank you for the support guys.

    I am planning to add additional Pinterest accounts - to ramp up my overall number to 30-35. And I am waiting my 25 tumblers. That will see me have 75 tumlbers overall.

    Good luck OP. Guys, Have you invested few $ for starting these journey? Here I can see you have created many accounts in different sites. I think it's so hard to run many accounts for achieving the more followers. Please keep update. Actually I have no time for starting such journey but I can take few inspiration from your journey.

    Yes, there are some recurring costs - proxies, VPS, Massplanner ... didnt track all the expenses. Now, I also have shopify 29 per month.

    So currently I am in a minus, and probably will be for some time. But I know it has to be that way in the beginning, every business and project start with investment, ergo minus. What is important, is that I see progress and I have a good feeling about it. If I lost one of these 2 factors, I would reconsider further investment.

    which tools are you using to promote your social account? I mean which bot are you using to get followers/likes?

    Massplanner with all of it extra modules. I also have unlimited FL for instagram, but dont like it - it is inferior to Massplanner in many features.

    SHORT UPDATE:

    Got my 25 tumblrs, in overall I am at 72 now (3 got banned). This batch of 25 will be used to support my shopify site.

    I am getting 70-100 visits to my store - no sales as of yet. I get couple of add to cart per day, but nobody pulls the trigger. Hope to see this soon :). Would be my first sale via dropshipping method.

    Short UPDATE:

    first sale.jpg

    I finally had my first sale on Shopify:


    It took me well over a month, with almost 2000 visits. I need to improve the design of the shop and this could be regular thing. Very happy to see it works!
