I promoted clickbank products (everything from grav 600's to grav 1's), cpa offers, tried to flip websites....
I've been through aweber, get response and imnica.
I've created niche blogs, squidoo lens's, over 100 ezine articles, hub pages, (and about 50 more social media sites.)
I've driven traffic through facebook, myspace, link'din, digg, youtube, and twitter.
Used ppc, ppv, seo,
AND JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING INBETWEEN and made nearly NOTHING (actually lost because i spent more on advertising then i made)
**** UNTIL ****
About a week ago when i was going through old posts on this forum I saw something that said "stop doing all the crap that the guru's say, not everyone uses youtube the same way, no one builds squidoo lens's the same way, but most of all NO ONE THINKS THE SAME WAY." So i took a step back and thought of all the things that actually worked for me. (which include youtube, twitter and some specific niche blogs)
And i said, why don't i combine these things...
So i did. And the last 4 days i have averaged 1.04$ each day. That money is not even enough to cover my cup of coffee each day. But to me it's the biggest amount of money in the world.
I am more excited now then i have been in 2 years for this. And i promise in 1 year from now I will be making 100x that a day.
The moral of my story is,
Sometimes it's hard to see what works in the sea of crap that everyone is putting out (not saying everything is crap don't get at me). You have to take a step back and see WHAT WORKS FOR YOU!

Ps. If you want to know what i did, I am monitizing a blog with cpalead and driving traffic through youtube and twitter.
