So I've been trying to create a few products for the internet, things that might add value for people and I decided to clone followgen after the owner claimed he was making buckets of money. I know that favoriting on Twitter might be a little old and they've clamped down on how many favorites you can do in a day, so these factors probably make it a bad idea to clone.
Anyway, it's been running about a month and I haven't had a single paying customer. I've only put about $150 into advertising, and because I'm a developer the rest of the expense has really just been my time. The whole reason I cloned followgen was because the UI/IA was terrrible but it seemed to be working, so I thought it would be a lucrative market.
So I'm a little dried up on ideas of how to promote the site in it's current incarnation, or even if it's a good idea - you can tell me if it's a shit idea, I won't be offended. Anyway, I'm thinking of pivoting it, maybe a social tracking/ranking/analytics site.
I was thinking about doing this whitelabel, it would be easy to do if anyone was interested and I'd even throw in some custom development if the right person could prove they can get the traffic.
Thoughts, suggestions, criticisms are welcome

That looks like a great Idea. I too have a website that is rapidly gaining clientele. The greatest advice I can give you is not to give up, keep persevering and you will reap the rewards.

Do not just really on paid advertising. Sometimes, paid ads depend on the kind of website you are promoting. If you are going to do ads, make sure you distribute the ads from different sites.
I would also recommend you focus also on SEO. Then perhaps, add more valuable content to your site so you can get good rankings for your site's keywords.

I agree with Mary June. Focus on SEO. it's not really hard to learn it and if you know how to do it well, you wouldn't have to be paying for paid ads.
