    Hey all, I thought I'd share with you my journey about making money on the internet! Here are my stats of money made so far:
    ******: $44 and counting!
    Youtube: $45 and counting!
    Fiverr: $4
    RL Part time job: $600+ (lol)

    My current goal is to try and get $5 per day. Currently with Youtube and adfly, I'm getting around 70 cents per day, which isn't a ton, but hopefully I can grow it. :)

    I'm going to try and start writing articles for websites, I thought that might bring in a few extra bucks. I've made the money from adfly mainly because I made a modification for Minecraft, and it sort of went viral, so I was very lucky there. Currently it has over 25,000 downlods. :)

    Any ideas for me to try? I've tried adfly + empire views, but that doesn't work very well. I've also tried making a twitter account about celebrity news, with adfly links to the news, but that hasn't worked out well either. I'm in the process of trying to write articles for Triond now, and I enjoy writing, so hopefully it works out. ;)

    Any other ideas that you guys suggest me to try? I'm in the entrepreneur mood right now. :D

    Make sure you set up your goal first, it doesn't matter whether it's $10/day or $100/day. The thing is, it will make you keep motivated day by day 'till you get there. :)

    And do what you already good at. I see that you mentioned Youtube as one of your income source. So why not keep doing it and optimize it.

    Good luck, if you found a way to make money put more effort in that and scale it up.

    I don't really have a goal of $/day, but I want to just try and keep growing my online income. I've also tried putting "leaked trailers" on torrent sites, and having them password protected through adfly, but that only got me 1 click, lol.

    As for YouTube, I'm trying to follow the trends. I'm currently getting around 300 views per day, which is equal to about 30 cents, so not much per day, but in a month, it's an alright amount.

    I've found making videos about leaked COD info, or just released COD info, game updates, and replies to viral videos really bring in the views. ;)

    Minecraft modification? Instead of using a shitty revenue sharing program like adfly. You could of required people to enter their email address to receive the modification and built a list, This way you would be making more and for a longer period of time.

    No, I assume you make minecraft modifications from time to time. Content lock the modification and send an email to your list with something along the lines of

    Be more sophisticated and detailed with your email, I just pulled this one out of my @$$. LOL

    You get a million views on Youtube? If they're all monetized, you'd get around $1000-$2000 or more.

    Interesting idea, except the place I post my modifications at don't allow things like that. Maybe I could post a newsletter link in the thread for the download, then contact them from that. ;)

    But, I have a few releases, but the one modification got 25k downloads in a couple months, which is great. :D

    You have to be partnered with Youtube to make money. Google Youtube Partnership, and then apply somewhere, then you can make money off of those views. :)

    Monetisation is how you make money from doing something such as uploading YouTube videos, CPA offers, ClickBank etc... You should stop posting and start reading or you're not going to make any money.
    You have 1.2 Million Views and that's it, you can't make any money from them now.
