    I'm still doing the PTC thing with ClixSense, but I notice that my funds are constantly lacking from advertising my referral link. I've decided to focus on a niche that I'm very passionate about and gain followers to hopefully convert and make $$$$ to help with my ads.

    I already have an account from April 2012, but I'm going to need help with a few things.

    1. Could I start following hundreds of people on Day 1 or will I get blocked?

    2. Do each of my tweets need to have hashtags?

    3. Once I have thousands of followers, will I need to get some kind of bot and set up a VPS? If so, which ones would work well?

    4. Is there a way to set up analytics and adsense with Twitter?

    5. Is it better to set up a website to get traffic from Twitter, or should I just send links from my affiliates directly to Twitter?


    Tips are welcome~!

    1. Since your account is over 2 years old, you should be fine following ~1000/day.
    2. No. You should have a steady gain from people following you back, so hashtags aren't necessary.
    3. A bot would make things a little easier. A VPS isn't needed, I don't think.
    4. Nope, you would have to direct your Twitter traffic to a website that has Adsense integrated into it.
    5. Either way is fine. I'd think you would have a higher CTR if you directly tweeted the affiliate links, but idk.

    Good luck man! Twitter is always a good and fun option for monetizing.

    Whoa, I only made two tweets and already got a follower. I'm seeing this becoming a money maker already. Since I love the niche - I'm not really focusing on the money, lol. I'll do things slowly but consistently. Let's see where it takes me.

    In the meantime, watch some more YouTube:

    Pretty interesting experience for my first time. Following over 300 people and got 5 followers, but most impressive is that I already got several retweets and faves.
    One person even direct messaged me to let me know that they like my username, lol.

    This could get interesting. This also calls for... The Mountain Song!! :D

    Well, things aren't going as quickly as I'd like, but we're getting there. Some tweets are getting 1 or 2 faves.

    Nothing special yet.

    We've got a long road ahead, guys... But I'm not giving up. :)

    End of Day #3

    I didn't do all that much today, because I was reading other people's journeys and got a free eBook from a member, which explains how to make money flipping new blogs. I already have everything but the site itself set up, so we'll see how it goes.

    Since I'm low on funds right now - I couldn't use a bot for Twitter and needed to do everything manually. That is until I learned from another member about little sites like ManageFlitter, which essentially does things for me. It was going fine until it refused to update how many followers I have and am following.

    Btw, there will be no updates from me tomorrow, because I don't work on Saturdays.

    Not exactly spectacular results. I've been feeling a bit down tonight. So, we'll need to watch something exciting and motivating.

    You should have a bot to make regular postings easier and it will keep your journey progressing.

    Heheh, I bet some of you thought that I was going to quit. I'm getting to 100k followers no matter what anyone says. :)
    This is nothing. I've gotten a few skills to 99 on Runescape - I know all about repetition. I've even had a lvl 99 Novice on Ragnarok without much teamwork.
    Anyway, I've started learning about Bitcoins and planning my next blog on the subject.

    P.S I still haven't given up on ClixSense. I'm just focusing my time on getting traffic. Also, I don't know what bots to use for Twitter other than ManageFlitter.

    Here are my results:

    [​IMG]

    I've actually lost 1 follower since taking a screeny of this, but that's ok because the person prob didn't like my motivational speech, lol.

    "Never give up, Never surrender!" - Galaxy Quest




    EDIT: Lol, this video has some pretty bad editing. It's ok, it speaks for itself.

    Life is tough sometimes, but we gotta fight on if we want to get through it all.

    End of Day #6
    Only got 2 hours of sleep last night. In the morning, I was at downtown paying the bills, but came too early so I had to wait a bit. It felt like hours passed cause I was so tired. Didn't work on that blog today, it's not like I bought the domain yet, lol. I need a new strategy for getting followers quicker. So far I only use ManageFlitter, but it would be nice if you guys would recommend something that is FREE, otherwise I'll have to continue the process this way. It's difficult trying to figure out what people like, especially with the niche that I have chosen.

    I got 4 faves on one tweet because I said something about marketing.
    Well, I'm gonna need some good sleep tonight. Listening to this song at night is relaxing for some reason and revitalizing.





    P.S I call music "song", because as a musician the music speaks to me. Felt that this needed to be addressed.

    I'm supposed to understand what that is or how to set this up? I spent some time figuring out what iMacro is and then read up how to set it up. I'm perplexed. "Modify it slightly" that's equivalent to giving my grandpa my computer and asking him to get rid of any malware that he finds. People post the bot script but don't explain how it works in the slightest. It's as though we're supposed to know this stuff already? Come on guys, I'm already spending all day marketing I don't know what I'm doing.

    Well, I spent some time trying to figure out how iMacro and TwDominator works. So far I'm still doing ManageFlitter cause I'm too much of a dumbass to figure it out, lol.
    I spent time on FitMisc today, because I got fed up with it. Still made some progress.

    Sheesh, at this rate I really will achieve my goal in 7+ years. But what can I do? Enjoy this vid, guys.




    Such a strange song, but catchy nonetheless.

    If[FONT=Tahoma, Calibri, Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif][/FONT]PUTYOUR1STKEYWORDHERE and PUTYOUR2NDKEYWORDHERE is a puzzle to you, then I am quite pessimistic about this journey.

    What keyword? What's with all the hit and run posts I constantly see? I didn't even know what iMacro was until you mentioned it and where exactly would someone have to put it? No, please save your "if you want something you have to work at it" replies that I usually hear. If you're going to post something, don't just half-ass it. Either tell me in detail or don't at all, seriously. No bullshit.

    If we're gonna do this, then we are doing it my way. Either 100% or 0%.

    I posted a working script, you just need to set the keywords you want to fav.
    For example, if you want to fav tweets including "stupidprick", change PUTYOUR1STKEYWORDHERE to stupidprick.

    Yes, now we're getting somewhere. Thanks for not half-assing that reply, I appreciate it. The average money making online guys don't give enough shits to actually give decent advice. I mean sure only the stuff you hear on a daily basis. My attitude is not going anywhere, btw. I used to be one of those judeo-christian pious pricks who pretend to love everybody, but that lifestyle is not for me. I'd rather be true to my word instead of some fakery. Yeah, that meme makes the most sense to me. :)

    I think ima post results once a week instead of everyday, to make it look epic.
