    Hello
    I'm a 22 year old student living in Sweden trying to make some money online. I'm a complete newbie (and a half-ass forum lurker), know barely no SEO at all but what I lack in knowledge I make up for in patience and lots of imagination, in fact, not a single day passes by when I don't think of new ways to make money or improve ideas. But if they're good we've yet to see :p

    My short time goal is making $10 a day and not spend more than 30-60 min a day maintaining my earnings.
    My mid term goal is making $30 a day and not spend more than 15-30 min a day maintaining my earnings.
    My long term goal is making $50+ a day and not spend more than 15-30 min a day maintaining my earnings.

    The reason I'm aiming low is because it's achievable next to easy IF you know half of what you're doing (atleast that's what the community says).
    Another reason is, I like to take small baby steps. It's not like these goals are set in stone, they WILL change but they are reachable goals and nothing motivates me more than reaching a goal no matter how big or small that goal is.
    The reason I started this "journal" is mostly thanks to thec00kchris, I got inspired by him and wanted to start my own.

    -Techniques-​
    I will mainly use sharecash, youtube and free web hosting for the time being. At the moment I'm not dealing with warez, I've uploaded a legit file, made by me, that was promised on my YT account. I started 2 days ago and here's what I've done so far;
    1. Choosen a niche
    2. Created the main account + 5 boosting accounts. I'm planning to create at least 10 accounts in total excluding the main one.
    3. Prepared my old Sharecash account and uploaded the file.
    4. Uploaded a video to youtube.
    5. Commented on 2 videos with 80-100.000 views that targets the same niche as me.
    6. Boosted the comments I made.
    7. Driven traffic to my video through different youtube view exchangers. (just to make my channel look somewhat legit)
    8. Used my boosting accounts to make them look legit (to youtube) as well.

    Day 3
    Today's Earnings: $0.40 (so far)
    Month's Earnings: $0.90
    All Time Earnings: $0.90
    Total Channel Views: 483
    Total Sharecash Downloads: 2
    $0,40/$10



    5 AM here so I will update in +10 hours. Gnite! :dunce:

    So my journey began with a shutdown of my connection until about 20 minutes ago. Wicked start! :p
    Anyway I will continue and update this thread regularly. Something I found interesting is that I've got another download without doing anything in 2 days. I didn't expect this so early.
    So today I've;
    Posted another comment on a video in my niche.
    Thumbed it up to the second place.
    Working on another video. I'm not sure wether I should upload it to another account or on the same to make it look a bit more professional. Atm my channel has 1 video and that's it.
    Anyway here are the stats for day 5;

    Day 3
    Today's Earnings: $0.36 (so far)
    Month's Earnings: $1,26
    All Time Earnings: $1,26
    Total Channel Views: 810
    Total Sharecash Downloads: 3
    Todays Goal: $0,36/$10



    I think it's strange I don't get more per download considering the three people who downloaded the file is from US. Oh well, it's better than nothing. And I've earned my first dollar :p

    ser att det är ett par svenskar här också, kul! :) (Just noticed there are some swedish people here too)

    Today I've been commenting on one video and up'd it with 4 of my other accounts throughout the day. I don't want to thumb it up all in one session because that would look suspicious. Nothing on sharecash today so today's been quite dull.
    I was looking for the simple Youtube SEO guide I found here but I forgot to save it so I'm gonna keep on looking.
    About the commenting, I'd like to point out that I'm carefully choosing which video to comment and what to say. I don't want to be that guy that spams every channel with the common "check out my channel". I want to have a nice solid argument behind every comment even if it's based on, you know.. a blank txt file or whatever.

    I'm going to comment on one more channel then I'm off to bed.

    I'm updating a bit earlier (?) today since I've been visiting my parents and just taking it easy today. Haven't done anything today and got 1 download from netherlands. Most of the views are still "fake", I guess I haven't had much real traffic since I haven't done any real YT SEO and my keywords and everything is so far off it's funny. Oh well. I'm going to continue tomorrow!

    Good luck with your try! Some questions:

    1. What you do the other 5 accounts? How you boost the main account with the video?
    2. In the videos with 100,000 views you wrote a comment and with other accounts you vote it so it can be get to the top?


    Thanks!

    You're around $1/1000views wich is correct, I would advise you to focus maybe on your keyword, make your videos more attractive, and maybe think about CPA.

    Awesome, hope it works out for you. Even if it's not much, making any amount of money online feels good, especially if its every day.

    I'm subbing, would like to see how your journal goes, good luck!

    Youtube Marketing is a little different to most, imagine your targeting naive 13 year olds.

    Good call on setting small goals initially - it always better to leave room to be pleasantly surprised than to set your goals really high initially and be disappointed.

    That isn't to say you don't set really high goals later on - just take baby steps first. You can eat an elephant one bite at a time.
    Good luck!

    Gee, atm I'm so tired I can't recall if it's still day 5 or if it's day 6 :D We'll call it 6.
    So today I've been creating a video for a 2nd nische and I'm about to upload it now. Aside from that I've been commenting and thumbing up my stuff on another video. I'm thinking about abandoning my website I made to drive traffic to from youtube and just go from youtube directly. I've put an popunder thingy on my website if someone actually visits it. I've had about 400 pageviews from 80 unique visitors counting since day 1 though so... well I don't know... :p
    I've been creating another YT account too, I'm thinking of creating one/day. After that I need to find a program to handle all the log in/outs, proxies and whatnot. Any suggestions? I barely know what I'm looking for lol :eek:
