I’m Over Trying To Make Decent $$$$$s On The Net.
Kia Ora Stackers,
Finally come to realise that this Internet lark is not for everyone.
Its easy to make $20 per day, but how many of us make the 5 figure daily sums everyone talks about – not a lot I reckon.!!
Don’t get me wrong – Spent a small fortune trying Adsence, FB, POF, PPV and Media Buys without ever getting a decent return ….
So tired holding down two jobs and then staying up to the small hours testing and re-testing for a $30 return … been at it since 2005.
The straws that finally broke the camel’s back were –
1) I spent over 5 hrs getting images, writing headlines and text, setting up different KGB Campaigns on FB,
only to have it all disapproved due to EWA pausing the campaign before I even was notified.
2) Ran a Banner Media Buy on Adbrite, targeting Norway for a $23.45 payout, received Traffic from Hindu, Chinese and French Sites, not 1 impression from Norway. When I questioned them why this was happening – know what they said – we don’t target non english speaking sites and our Norway traffic is very small – yet they approved the banners which were written in bloody Norwegain. Conned in the biggest way.
To me and I maybe wrong – that to make the big dollars one has to have some inside knowledge about what is converting and what is not.
Also being an IT engineer wouldn’t hurt.
So at midnight tonight my subscription for the forum is due, but I’m going to cut my losses – about $20k – and run …
take my bat and ball and head home….
Before I sign off – would like to wish everyone much success and hope you all continue to at least break even on all your campaigns and maybe
some of you will get the opportunity to tell your boss, to stick his JOB where the sun don’t shine.
Take care and stay safe,
Definitely not fit for everyone. Don’t you do internet marketing or something related for your day job as well though?
Just to add some stuff:
1. Some bosses are quite pleasant to work with!
2. KGB was only paused for approx 3-4 days across networks.
Overall though this job is a daily hustle and grind and you have to like marketing and advertising to really be able to stick with it.
Good luck in other ventures!
Pretty sad to read Murray, but I guess you’re right it isn’t for everyone.. if only you knew … Maybe you will know someday
Sorry to see you go Murray, but best of luck with all your future endeavors.
I thought if you could churn out profit every day you already beat part of the game. 20 dollars a day is a huge stepping stone
Pretty good point, $20 a day consistently is quite the stepping stone. It’s definitely scalable from there, but i’m going to assume it wasn’t 1 consistent campaign t $20/day.
