    Hey guys, I'm back with another journey!

    One thing I realized from my previous journey is that I need a lot of motivation. Now, I know that you guys following me is strong motivation, but I also think that trying to get something I want is strong motivation as well. I think that trying to make money just to have money is not worth it. That's why, in this journey, I decided I was going to work for an item. The one I want is a custom computer from Alienware, which costs in total $2,993. So this time, I'm going to push myself to update the thread each and EVERY day with my stats, because I really want to be on the top of my game this time!


    My Plan:

    • Upload at least 2 videos per day to youtube, promoting my niche
    • Provide starter traffic to my videos using u2bviews, I have an account with 47,000 credits



    Creating youtube accounts isn't hard for me, I am using a new method that I used in my previous journey, and all of those accounts are still active even though I posted really crappy videos. I plan on only posting one video per account, hopefully minimizing my chances of being banned.



    Math:
    Since I'm making from .60-1.00 per offer, I need around 3742 conversions to get this computer.
    I make around $1 per day per video, meaning that I need to have around 100 video's if I am going to get this computer within a month. If I stick to uploading 2 videos per day, I will have 60 by the end of this month. I would rather have 100, so I may end up trying to upload 5 or so videos per day.

    Investments:
    The one investment I am making is Mass Video Blaster Pro, which costs $97. I bought it today, and am about to teach myself the learning curve.


    Day 1:
    Videos Uploaded: 3
    Impressions:9
    Leads: 4
    Profit: $3.55
    Total: -$93.45




    Ready guys? I'm excited for this journey!

    Good to see you bought MVB Pro. It's an amazing piece of software. Only other purchase I would highly recommend is to get CLP. You can make way more than 0.60-1.00 putting in your own offers. I also don't focus on getting x amount of videos up per day. Don't just call it a day because you made 2 videos which takes like a half an hour max of your time. Keep going and get as many up as you can.

    Oh and one more thing. Alienware is ridiculously overpriced. Build your own high-end PC and you will be more than satisfied.

    This is usually the time where people say good luck, but it's not about luck. It's about making a plan and sticking with it. Make a deadline for your goals and write out how you are going to get it. Repeat it over and over as much as you can so your brain gets used to the FACT that you are going to reach your goals.

    Know anyone I can contact for a parts list or to see if my parts list will work together? I'm willing to build it myself for sure. And I do own CLP, I just don't have any good networks to use it for. I'm currently using a network that has their own content locking page.


    Its a desktop.

    Just go to Newegg or Tigerdirect and buy parts to build it. If you don't know how to build one there's plenty of tutorials on Youtube.

    Also i'd recommend trying to rank a few videos in 1st position rather than simply creating a whole bunch.

    As far as getting a parts list together what I did was just sign up to a computer building forum, told them my budget and what I was looking for and they helped me out quite nicely.

    As far as CLP goes, you should really try to get into a few networks. It's not hard to bs your way into most of them and then you will be looking at $1.50 minimum per US lead. Usually a lot higher if you look around. You should also be careful with a networks' own locker since it is most likely against their TOS to lock fake hacks (if that's what you are doing). CLP lets you blank the ref which prevents them seeing that.

    Anyway, with some persistence and hard work there's really no reason you shouldn't be getting your new PC anytime soon! Just remember to set goals and give them deadlines.

    Alienware isn't what it used to be, ever since Dell bought it, its been crappy. Do some research and you'll see they build those PCs with underclocked outdated video cards. I would suggest cyberpowerpc, I just bought a gaming pc from them, and its easily better than anything dell has to offer, and only cost $900. As slick and pretty as they look, they are no where near worth the price.

    I do have another network, but for some reason their offer's had stopped converting for me, and i thought they were stealing from me, so i stopped using them. However, you convinced me to give them another try. I'm going to run a split test, and try to upload videos to both sets of content lockers each day. Hopefully my old network kicks back in again, but otherwise I will stay with the one I'm using now.

    I checked out that site, and turns out, you're right! I may end up buying a laptop from them as opposed to this desktop, as I will be heading off to college after this year and gotta bring something with me.

    Thanks!



    Today's Tasks

    • Find a new site to get my starter views from; as u2bviews seems not to be working anymore.
    • Upload at least 6 videos, splitting them between 2 networks (One of the networks pays me from $.60 to $1.00 per lead; the other pays me from $2-$8 per lead)
    • Learn how to use Mass Video Blaster Pro, hopefully to upload videos faster.
    • Make at least $10

    -U2bviews should be back up later tonight or tomorrow.

    -PM me your main offers. I think I know which ones you are using and know for a fact they start shaving after about a week of running them, which of course they have every right to since we're sending them crap traffic.

    -Here's my basic MVB Pro run-through:

    1. Put all your newest videos in a folder. I name the folder whatever the date is I made those videos. Make the name of each video the title you want for the video.

    2. Import them into MVB Pro with a general title/description/tag so it lets you import them all. I just use "t" for title, etc...

    3. Edit all of your videos with the real info. You can easily copy/paste the video name into the title field right within MVB Pro if you named it correctly earlier.

    4. In your upload settings:
    a) set it to use however many videos/account you want. I personally do 5 videos/account and that works fine for me.

    b) Set it up to use a VPN. Most proxies (public or private) seem to really suck with Youtube. You can try proxies if you want but my accounts always died using proxies.

    c) There might be some other settings I use but can't think of them at the moment and I can't access my setup right now.

    5. If you wish, you can easily duplicate your videos in MVB Pro and then just give them new titles/tags/descriptions.

    Day 2:

    So I'm going to be split testing my networks, and I started doing so today. To distinguish between them, I will give them names. The higher paying network will be called "Gold" and the lower paying network will be called "Bronze".

    Gold
    Videos Uploaded Today: 9
    Impressions: 2
    Leads: 0
    Profit: $0.00
    Total: -$93.45
    Total Videos Uploaded: 9


    Bronze
    Videos Uploaded Today: 9
    Impressions: 8
    Leads: 2
    Profit: $0.90
    Total: -$92.55
    Total Videos Uploaded: 12


    I actually thought I was going to have to disappoint you guys today; I didn't make any conversions until the last hour or so! But, I did upload 18 videos today! I started to send 250 views + likes to each video using u2bviews as well, hopefully that helps my videos rank and get some more natural traffic!

    On another note, I decided I'm going to change my goal. My goal now is going to be a customized laptop from cyberpowerpc, and then after that a custom built desktop PC. The total for the laptop is about the same; $2800 or so.

    Day 3:
    Hey guys, so I made some big changes today. I woke up this morning, shocked to see that all my videos were taken down. That's all 21 videos, all taken down. I then talked on skype with xxf8xx for a few hours, and got some tips. Today I ended up buying a VPN and a hundred PVA YouTube accounts. This set me back $61.52. However, I did upload 10 new videos today, 5 to each campaign. I also boosted them with u2bviews, 250 likes and views per video.

    Gold
    Videos Uploaded Today: 5
    Impressions: 12
    Leads: 1
    Profit: $2.60

    Total Gold Videos Uploaded: 5


    Bronze
    Videos Uploaded Today: 5
    Impressions: 3
    Leads: 2
    Profit: $1.40
    Total Bronze Videos Uploaded: 5

    Banned Videos: 21
    Total Profit: -$150.07



    I did pretty good today, considering I had to start all over again from scratch. I made more than I had in any previous day.

    Guys, I LIKE your comments! If you read, please comment and help me stay motivated! Ask me questions, I am here to help you guys as well!

    Day 4:
    Hey guys, bad day today. So I woke up to 5 videos being deleted again, I had to reupload them today. Unfortunately, I was unable to do much more than that because of a very destructive virus that has practically destroyed my computer. Thanks to that asshole who posted a file that they infected on here! Make sure to scan everything with VT guys, thats the lesson. This virus was a Remote Access Tool, or RAT, called DarkComet. It was encrypted with a software that would make it impossible to detect, so I had to remove it manually. Nasty tool. Anyways, hopefully I have a better day tomorrow! I also made a new niche website, for which I will try to make videos tomorrow. Then, I will upload them and add to u2bviews.

    Run anything that seems suspicious in a sandbox. That way you'll keep it inside a controlled environment and can easily get rid of it if it is infected.
    And good luck on your journey! :eek:

    Am with you bro. Start thinking like youtube would think if you are boosting the shit out of your vidoes all in one day. Boost the videos using different tools and slowly
