    Hi everybody! Inspired by a lot of BHW's journey thread (especially TheMoneyWizard's), I have decided to open one myself since I think having a journal and sharing it with everybody is the best way to continue on this journey that is full of ups and downs. Till date I have spent about $700 on shitty stuff (useless WSO, useless bots, useless uselessness etc.) just to make $150 so I'm in the red. However I have found a method involving giving incentives to people to fill out offers (the incentive is fake btw) that works quite well for me.

    First I'm gonna try Youtube commenting and rating. Then later when I have made some money, I'm gonna move to facebook ads and some other traffic sources.

    WHAT I HAVE DONE TODAY (DAY 1):

    - Bought Youtube Commander (-$47)
    - Bought 27 YT PVA accounts from Fiverr (-$5)
    - Bought a domain with private registration and Safety Seal or something like that for the domain (-$28)
    - Bought JQuery auto-facebook-like script so that anyone who click on my site to get the incentive will automatically like my webpage (-$14)
    - Since I have dynamic IPs I'm gonna restart my router to switch IPs every 3 votes in order to save money on proxies


    Total:-$94

    Hope I can make this back in 2-3 days :) Right now I'm waiting for Youtube Commander to activate. Their support always seem so slow. Anyway, I'll try to update everyday of what I do even if I don't earn anything. Cheers :)

    Yeah I figure if I divide my big goal into smaller, manageable parts, which I will feel more sure about achieving, I will be more motivated to continue than to keep failing short of the big $250 goal and keep feeling like shit for several months :)


    Thank you so much, I will need your emotional support in the future when I'm down on my journey :)

    DAY 2:

    - Created my landing page. It looks awesome in my opinion :)
    - Customize my link locker with good messages that I think will convert and optimize my offer.
    - Rank my comment on top of 3 videos in my niche


    Doesn't sound like a lot of work but it took me the whole day. I could have done more but Youtube Commander seems so slow and full of bugs and the mass commenter feature doesn't work for me so I'll have to wait until that is fixed.

    EARNINGS: $0

    GOALS FOR TOMORROW:
    - Rank top comments on 20 videos in my niches
    - Try to either fix issues with YT Commander or just get a refund

    DAY 3:
    - Couldn't complete my goal of rating comments to highest on 20 videos today because YT Commander just did not want to work, so I decided to get a refund on the software.

    - So now my originally intended method of getting traffic didn't work out, decided to spam forum and see the result. It wasn't very good:
    --- Landing page hits: 50 --- Clicks: 10 -- Lead: 0 --- . I know 10 clicks is too few to say anything about my method but that was enough for me because before I was trying a method with super high conversion. So I decided to switch to that method the day after.


    DAY 4:
    - Tried an incentive offer from another network today with the method I mentioned and the results were better:
    LP Hits: 3 --- Click: 1 --- Lead: 1 --- Earnings: $2.25

    - I couldn't spam the forum anymore because I kept getting blocked. So I decided to change to another way of getting traffic: facebook page. Created 1 and gonna use addmefast to get fake likes first, then I'm going to use facebook PPV to get likes from realy people. I'm gonna buy a $50 fb coupon from fiverr and see if it works. If it does then I'm gonna mass create fb PVA accounts to use the coupons with.


    - I actually had to spend $0.36 to buy 18 clicks from 7search to dilute the EPC since my EPC for that offer was 2.25 when the networkwide EPC was $0.22. Do you think I should have done this? This is an incentive offer afterall. Will 100% conversion rate on an incentive offer raise any red flag?

    To be fair it doesn't work as well as advertised. It does work, but it always seem to miss videos when mass commenting.

    The OP know about what I'm talking, I predicted a lot things about YTC.

    I hope at least he can get a refund.

    DAY 5:
    - I created a landing page and a fb fan page for the next product coming out.
    - I couldn't do much since I didn't have any means of driving traffic to my site now that I have returned YT Commander and waiting for the $50 fb ad coupon that I ordered from Fiverr to arrive. So of course, no earnings.

    DAY 6:
    - Tried to make my landing page look as legit as possible.
    - Watch some videos that teach facebook ads tips.
    - Got some leads from my last campaign that I promoted through only liking and commenting on relevant facebook pages under my fan page's name.
    UVs: 7 ---- Clicks: 5 ---- Leads: 2 ----- Earnings: $5.00
    This campaign's landing page did not look as legit as my new one but still converted very well. Can't wait to see how the new one fare. Maybe I should start commenting on youtube manually to get a small amount of income first.

    Keep it up!

    Also I manually commented at first. If you put the time in, it can be more profitable than a bot. I hit the highest I have ever earned in a day by Manually Commenting. Also unlike a bot you won't miss out lots of videos :)

    Thanks for the tip TMW, how long did it usually take you to comment on around 50-80 videos like you said in your initial posts? Did you use different accounts with proxies when you were commenting manually?

    No problem. Also it took time I have to admit. It took me about 1-2 hours to post to over 50 videos. No this was before YT flagged my IP and accounts. I got away with using the same IP. I mainly used one account but I created a new one for each niche. I got away with it for about 2 weeks. I hit an $80/day through manual comments once. Just pick the right time to comment and the right day, like Friday night.

    Wow, that sounds motivating, I'm gonna start commenting manually tomorrow :)
