i've been doing IM for like 2 years now and in the past 6 months i've been doing it hardcore. i've read a ton, i've practiced a ton, i know quite a bit about IM, seo, etc. but all i've managed to do is spend tons of money on software, fiverr gigs, WSOs, and mostly on failed PPC campaigns and have only managed to make about $600 from CPA over the past 6 months and like $2000 from selling backlinks. that's a little over $400/mo lol.... right now, i feel like a total failure while everyone else seems to have all these "$100 a day" methods, which doesn't even seem like a lot but it'd be better than what i'm making now.. i'm extremly frustrated to say the least, but i refuse to give up. (and those that flame me here and say "you should give up" you can shove it where the sun don't shine!)i really just want like ONE method that brings in even like $50/day would be awesome at this point. then i'll just scale it and that would solve everything. so this is what i've been up to: 1. Pinterest - bought pinpal and have been repinning daily to 100-150 accounts, but many of those accounts have no followers and no profile pics which i only know how to fix manually) - only getting around 100-150 visits a day to a recipe blog, getting like 10 clicks a day to amazon from that, zero conversions - i just started linking directly to CPA from my pins and so far zero conversions 2. SEO'd a Niche Movie Review site - site is getting 600-700 visits a day and i set up "watch now" links to amazon but get only a couple conversions a month on that. - i also have adsense on that site and it makes about $1.50 a day on average - i have a few other niche sites that have been slapped hard just when they started to get a ton of traffic from rankings 3. Fiverr gigs - tried selling backlinks, only like 2 sales a week on average. i just generally don't know how to get more sales there. 4. selling backlinks - this has been the hardest service to sell since everyone and their mom does it now. i used to make about $1000/week on it, now i make about $200 on a good week 5. PPC - NOTHING and i mean NOTHING has worked out for me with PPC. it's been a HUGE waste of money and time. - i've gone through the process of testing campaigns and just keep wasting more money with zero positive results, even after months of testing on the same campaigns. - i've tried using PPC for mailing list signups to no avail. thousands of clicks, hundreds of thousands of impressions, zero signups. 6. Adwords vouchers - tried getting mailing list signups with adwords vouchers but i blew through the whole $100 with only 15 or so signups and then how do i use that same list without them disapproving me when i use a new voucher? this still has potential, but is horribly time consuming. 7. psd/wordpress conversion service - this is something i feel i could do well, but people won't buy it for more than $50 anymore. - plus, it's become incredibly competitive as well i'm sure that people would need more info to help me, which i'd be willing to give over PM. but basically i'm in serious need of some coaching. i know how to do a ton of blackhat stuff that would break the rules with the affiliate networks i'm with, but i don't want to bite the hand that feeds me. i just need to find high converting traffic which just doesn't seem to exist in my world. someone help!
