    Right hello again BHW members:)
    Recently I have been researching a lot of Link locking, cpa, and making money online. Seeing as I am doing a gap year in the UK I have had a lot of time free in between my duties. ( I am working in a school as a PE assistant teacher )
    And instead of doing nothing, I have decided that I want to make some money - after all how hard can it really be?

    After reading some other journals on their journeys to $50 a day it inspired me.
    I have decided that I will be aiming at a $5 a day.

    WHY on earth so low you may be asking?
    I am a complete n00b, beginner, amateur, inexperienced, at this stuff. So for me $5 is quite a lot.
    I will only be concentrating on Link Locking for the moment.
    Am still a bit unsure of what the best company to use for this type of scheme is - but for now i am using Share Cash. Will change later if I find something better, or if there are higher payouts. The current payouts are $.60 PD ( Depending where you are in the worl )
    That is not bad.

    Starting at the beginning
    Right so here is what I am focusing on.
    1- I have created a YouTube account. I will then be uploading files in this particular Niche. If it is in high demand then people will want it no matter the cost, and are willing to do as much as possible to get it.
    I name that video like this " (What it is ) [FREE DOWNLOAD] "

    In the description I have not told the people that you have to complete a survey to download the song. Should I change this?

    2- Using Vagex I have put 200 views only on one of my videos. Hopefully that will boost something.
    Next I am going to be commenting on other videos that say Free Download.
    The reason for that is for people who click on that video, and then in the comments they will see mine saying
    " New free downloads on my channel " or something like that.

    I don't expect this to go big, as I am not offering much:)
    But hopefully with time will come experience - everyone has to learn starting off with nothing.
    It would be great if you could share your tactics and help me along, and i will share with you what I have learned and discovered.

    For the moment I will be posting every few days, as you can only read so much about Link Locking before it gets boring.
    If i do well, then i will be moving on from link locking to other similar CPA methods.

    If you want you can stick to this thread:) It will be great to get advice from all you experienced people:)

    Wish me Luck!
    Update tomorrow on how I am going!:)

    Good luck! :)

    Is sharecash still turning a blind eye to warez considering what happened to megaupload etc?

    Hmm I am not the best person to ask with that as I do not know all the details:)
    I just remembered it was a site to upload files - then I went to it and found it was banned. Pity.

    I just hope Share Cash does not ban me with my files that I am uploading, as they are not exactly legal.:dunce:

    What do you make the video about? Do you simply upload the song to youtube or do you get for example pictures of the singer etc..

    Good luck man. Check your shortened links with Google. They are disabled. Dont use google shortener for that. Also, try to put in title "EXCLUSIVE PREVIE ONLY HERE" or something like that to make people believe you have something special..!

    Have a look at my channel - I gave the name further up. But what i do is give a few seconds preview of the video. About 30 seconds. Which means that people then cnnot "steal" the video ( Pretty ironic isnt it )
    I just google an image and then use movie maker to add an overlay saying "HQ DOWNLOAD IN LINK" something like that.

    Oh dang. Maybe thats why I have not been getting any clicks.. Thanks for that!!! Thumbs up friend:)

    DAY 1

    So to continue this thread, and to update you on what has been happening.
    First of all I think that I will be using FileIce from the future on ( Once been approved ) as even though the earnings are not high, you have higher chances of downloads as there are no surveys to fill out.
    So in the end more downloads at cheaper leads for me is better than less downloads at higher paid out rates.
    Ill let you guys know what happens.

    So what did I do today.
    TBH not all that much, which is a bad thing! Don't get into a lazy attitude. Money does not come from sitting home doing nothing, you have to work your butt off.

    Youtube channels - 1
    Videos - 14
    Video Views - 701
    Subscribers - 0
    Clicks - 0

    I think the reason why the clicks are not happening are because of surveys, it is such a mission for people to fill them out. If there are any other companies out there like filesonic(now disabled) or Fileice. Companies that PPD and no surveys, then let me know ASAP:)

    I did a few bits of commenting on other channels and videos with similar content as mine, and told them to check out my site as I have free downloads.

    This is slow, I am hoping that I will get one very good video and then hoping that the downlaods will come rolling in!.
    Still a long way to go before I reach $5.
    Haha it seems like I am walking this long road and I cant even see the end.

    I am GOING to make this!
    All it takes is a little bit of work each day:p

    Till the next post!

    Day 2
    Right so I am so excited to post this new reply, I have literally been waiting the whole day just till I have some free time to write this.
    First for a few updates:

    I have not been able to upload any videos as have had duties - will be uploading more later.
    Videos - 14
    Views - 952
    Subs - 0
    Clicks - 1

    haha, so I know this sounds retarded but that one click is from me. I had to test the site to see what it was like. I was a bit disappointed with the surveys as it takes you to an advertisement first and then to a survey. It looks like there are a few things you have to fill out. Once I finished with that I waited about 4 min before the download unlocked.
    Not very attractive to people who want to just download a song plain and simple - I might be scaring possible customers away.


    I earned $.63 for a download. NOT BAD! Have signed up with FileIce, which sounds like a better option. Once I get approved I think i will just convert all my files across.

    On to the new news!
    Last night I stayed up way later than I normally do, just looking around , browsing and reading success stories.
    I found one story that I really liked and decided to implement it, and change and turn it until it fits in with what i need
    I am not going to give you the niche or what I do right at the moment as I need to see if it works for me. If it doesn't work then I will hand it over, and let you guys do a much better job.

    So I signed up for the site last night and I got active. It involves lots of affiliates and advertising.
    The saying goes - Spend money to make money.
    I spent about $25 in setting up accounts, posting things and all that.
    Hopefully in the long run this will help me out and I will end up making that cash over.

    It is a really simple way and is very easy it applies to Noobs like me. Although it is not a noob way of making the cash.

    I checked earlier on today and my earnings are currently sitting at $3.01
    I KNOW RIGHT! I signed up yesterday and I already have $3.01 on that.
    Payouts are every Friday after you reach $10.
    I will keep on going at this method and let you know what happens.

    It seems a bit more profitable than link locking i must say.
    Till next time!
