Failing at Forex and Others

After a few days I'm still failing at forex. ;_;

Sigh.
I'm not going to give up, yet. It's only been a few days, maybe I'll get better (or not).
Time to start a new demo account I guess.




A while back google mailed me a $35 adwords voucher for some reason. I didn't know what to use it for so I googled around and ended up stumbling upon affiliate marketing. In case you haven't heard of affiliate marketing, basically it's where you try to promote a product and every sale you get nets you a commissions, all of this done online.

Reading about it on various sites and forums this seems simple enough. You basically:
1. Find a suitable product to advertise.
2. Create an ad campaign on adwords with your affiliate link.

Seems simple enough right? I thought so too.


To be fair the ad campaign is still running but I don't think the result will change.
I also didn't spent any money aside for the $10 activation fee for the adwords account.

But I might've been better off selling the voucher instead.



I didn't use adsense for this blog. I was planning to use adsense but then I remembered I have a dormant bidvertiser account so I decided to use it instead.
The fact that they payout via paypal and have a low minimum payout ($10) is a plus too.

But that might've been a mistake.


As you can see, it's not performing well. Hell it's not performing at all.
Oh well I'll let it run for a few more days before I'll decide whether to replace it or not.



Damn making money on the net is hard.

  1. I'm up to around $105 so far.

    I need to create a new bank account, though.

    All of that money is going towards figures anyway.

  2. Why would google send you a $35 voucher? I didn't know they did that.

  3. Beats me. I don't know why they sent it via snail mail instead of just emailing it to me either.

  4. I tried getting into forex, but it seemed like something that'd be easy on paper but difficult in practice.

  5. What Kirari said about Forex.

    I sucked at it. Probably gave up too quickly, but I swear I couldn't have read the charts worse- that's after studying the info sites for a whole day.

  7. Try advertising more? It's hard to get out the word on the internet but try going and seeing other followers and get more followers that way. It's how I found you so lol.

  8. I also tried that thing out and failed at it.
    I just don't have the attention span or the intelligence it takes for that.

  11. Forex is not good to make money. It only serve as a way to save money, if you know how. Don't expect to become rich with this, you won't.
