    As I'm currently pretty sick this won't be a very long post. If it's useful to someone then great.
    It might be my last post here for a while for various "non-IM" reasons that I don't care to share here.
    Okay, in short: ever since I started working with Clkbank and CPA, I've been MISERABLE.
    I feel like I'm wasting my life away, clicking buttons mindlessly and hoping to catch a fish.

    I'd like to be able to say it's because I don't like CB or CPA as it doesn't convert for me, but it's not even that. I find the work super boring and not rewarding in the least.

    If/When I'm in the mood again, I'll go back to writing ebooks. It pays peanuts for me but at least I don't feel like I'm giving my life to the god of clicks.

    Always best to do something you enjoy. That's why I had to get out of all that nickle and dime, hustle crap. Just thinking about what I was doing or even the possibility of having to do it again causes me to have a shortness of breath. Good god. It's like someone who got out of prison and doesn't want to return, I ain't going back! That's motivation in its own right.

    I'm confused, what exactly are you "clicking buttons" for? It sounds like you enjoy writing but not "clicking", but promoting CPA and clickbank is all about content (ie. writing).

    If you enjoy writing ebooks, why not just add your affiliate/CPA links into your ebook naturally where it fits?

    Just my thought as I don't really understand what you mean by CPA and Clickbank is all clicking. For me it's all content, and I hate writing content, so I hire people to write it for me.

    I think that's what I'll do, thanks. Frankly I'm sick of looking at stats, and even when I get an ebook sale or borrow I'm not happy anymore.
    I think I need to look into advertisement networks such as Google Adsense. I do have about $30 stuck in an old GA account.
    Well the method I was trying to use wasn't really based on content. It was an MNS site which I wrote a single article for + one rebranded "ebook" under a CPA survey content locker.
    Sadly Amazon would block my ebooks if I put CB links in it. I know I could make a website, then have the CB offers in there, but frankly that would ruin the reputation of whatever pen name I'm using.

    It consisted in posting tons of comments manually (daily) to bring "throwaway" traffic to the website.
    While I did get some traffic I had no conversions, despite the fact that I wrote the 1K-word article myself.
    I know MNS needs 3-4 articles at least usually, but the one I wrote was supposed to get people to buy the CB offer.

    It's funny because a few days ago I was really obsessed about becoming rich for various reasons (no, not to buy tons of stuff, more pressing matters).

    Now I don't think it's worth it. If I'm miserable 24/7 it's just not. I don't "love" writing -- well at times I do but not every day. Writing is not an easy job and I can't say I'd be able to pump up one article per day, but then again it really depends on the pay per word. I'm not getting much when I write my own content but at least there's always a chance people will borrow or buy my book later, so it's a kind of passive income.

    So you tried to make money by cutting corners hoping to speed shit up.
    A MNS is at least 3-4 articles but really a good profitable MNS is around at least 10-15.
    You only wrote 1 measly article and I'm assume you haven't even been pushing it for over month since you joined BHW this month.
    If you want success, Hard work is involved. No matter if you want to be rich or live comfortably.
    Otherwise join the job field and slave for someone else living out your boss's dream. Your choice.
    FUCK a J.O.B. I'd rather slave for myself progressing towards success than have another person determine my pay and my life. That's me.
    This is why most people end up quitting and going the 9 to 5 route.
    And BTW I'm most likely in worst situation then you are. Well it's your choice.
    And if you give some else the choice to make your choice than that is your choice as well.
    Attempt to not quit doing what you want to do and Stay up no matter what.

    Take a break for a while, this is a tough business and it's easy to lose your motivation.

    Do you own a website? If not stop the bum methods. I'm assuming you're trying all this washed up old school methods than have be done over and over again. PM if you want to learn how to actually internet market. Last year i was you. I wasted my time, tried everything from scamming people into going to my CPA links all the way to e-whoring. I took a year or so to actually learn how to do things right. SEO, Create value,Build a blog, Build a reltionship with my readers,PPC and all that fun stuff. feel free to ask me man, I wont throw you to the wolves like most will.

    Thank you everybody for your answers. Sadly I'm not able to take a break from the computer at that time because the college work to do, but I decided not to check my stats and visitors anymore. Clearly what I'm doing right now is not working and yes it's probably because I'm trying to cut too many corners. Honestly I don't know if you have enough articles in me to make a proper niche site, but maybe an MNS or two would be possible. Abbystabby if you have any advice for me I would be happy to read it and yes I would be okay trying PPC again even though I failed the first three times.

    I might try it with Chitika or something similar first as I don't want to put my Google AdSense account at risk. If I did this I would probably build a decent website first something like an MNS on WordPress let's say 15 or 20 articles. I have a few ideas but these are probably oversaturated like what I've just tried. Since I have scrape box I then can blast a tier one website word may be even tier 2 and blasts the ish out of it.

    When blasting a large amount of comments with Scrape box do you recommend doing this with a tier 2 so that there are two buffers between the money site and the main website or is blasting a tier 1 fine also? I guess if I am the last to one website I get more traffic back right? Okay I think that's it thank you all again and I will try coming back after a break and a change of strategy

    Hmm, add me on Skype and I'll assist you with your articles if you wish. I find that just being able to chat with some of the people on here every so often helps a lot with motivation and staying focused.

    In most of your posts, you seem to target newbies, requesting that they PM you, so you can take them away from the forums, and charge them for something. Why don't you just get your post count up, but Jr VIP with all this money you're making, and open a sales thread. People will surely review these Godly services you offer, which will then bring you even more business.

    CPA game is require a lots of "critical thinking/creativity & thinking outside the box".

    CB it just you try selling some book. In reality, how you gonna do that?

    Think about it.

    Overall, research about demand first, competitor, and then start jumping into that niche.

    Would you feel more motivated promoting your own Clickbank ebook?

    If you're not already why not publish one and setup a few sites to promote it?

    That is a good advice. Taking a break would surely help her recover from the stresses produced from such business.
