    Hey guyz,
    I have been for a while in the forum and never tried to aply anything at all from what I have read in here. Now sit back and relax because this is going to be a long read until You find out what I am doing now to get that $200/day.​

    I started IM back in Feb 2010 around my birthday. I was working as Call center guy sales or collections, here and there. Busting my ass long days and evenings shifts. I was over $6k in debt... not biggy for a lot of people but I was never able to finish my high school. And when I started college I was not able to finish it either because of bills and rent.​

    I was sick of that kind of life so that is why I started using my knowlege regarding internet and coding to my advantage.​

    To be honest I started using ShareCash for a couple of months, I was making some decent money anywhere from $300 - $600 a month. But then my earnings were going down due that it was short term thingy projects.​

    I was feeling that I was not making enough money and that I was really not getting the most out of my work. So I started doing some research because I knew that SC was making money to but my question was how...​

    At that time I had no idea about CPA, which is how SC makes their money. One day I happened to see the affiliate link of one of the surveys, so I head over to it. And I discovered then CPA. I applied to the network. ​

    When I got accepted and I saw the payouts I was like "Holy Sh1t!!".:confused:

    I couldnt believe I was misisng on so much payout... Then I stopped working on Sharecash and working on my own.:cool:

    Around tht time I signed up at this forum, but never applied anything that I read here. I rather do everything on my own and learn from any mistakes.:eek:

    I started with Youtube and always sticked to it since I was good at it.​

    I had several campaigns, some failed and other where succesful making me $20 - $50 daily.:rolleyes:

    On Aug 2010 I started a brand new campaign where I had been for a while doing research and planning my work for it.​

    This was only 1 youtube video, one micro niche, one blog on blogger.
    I started making $10 daily until december I breached $100 daily with that campaign and I quit my job. Since I quit my job, I put a bit more care to my campaign bringing it up to nearly $200 - $300 daily. :sleep:​

    I was so overwhelmed with this results that I wante to start something new. :detective​

    I decided to start SEO and ranking in google with an actual website.​

    I was new to this whole new thing and for as much as I read it seemed comlicated for me, because of tools, myths, articles, submissions and a lot of bs work... So I was delaying it to start because of this.​

    In Feb15 2011, this day striked me so hard. :( My campaign in youtube came down in matter of seconds. Because of a huge mistake I made and I regret doing it. I had done it before and I knew if I done it I would be paying for the consequences. I uploaded a new video in the same channel where I had my money maker. So that new video was flag by COMPETITON and got my account suspended along with my authority video.:eek:

    Never put your eggs in the same basket

    I went from $200 to $0 a day...I tried getting back up for the next 2 weeks and nothin but my videos kept on being pulled down with flags.​

    I decided to approach in a different way now...

    Before I started this campaign in august, I had bought a Domain related to this niche but never used it.​

    So I thought It would be Ideal to tried to get everything back up but approaching search engine traffic instead.​

    This are the steps I followed from the few thing I learned.

    On Feb 28 2011, I set up a WP blog.

    1. I did my Keyword research
    2. I installed SEO all in one plugin and SEOpressor plugin to WP.​
    3. I SEO'd my blog properly with my first post.​
    4. I went ahead and bought some XRumer and 2.0 services about probally with 3000 BL's.​
    Let me tell you my results,


    Today March09 2011. My WP blog got indexed within a few days.
    I started ranking for two of my keywords 6th and 9th of SERP's
    This was pretty damn exciting for me to be honest as I thought I was way to complicated to start doing SEO. :D

    But I still in the Google Dance, hoping for better results later.​

    I am now getting 10% of the traffic I was getting in youtube, so its a good sign.​

    My earnings went up tp $20 - $30 a day and its progressively increasing.:)

    I have bought Scrape Box the other day, and Im JV with a fellow member to star using Xrumer. BUt i was advised not to do any blasting for now and allow the services I asked to get indexed. so far there is about 80 Bls indexed.​

    I will use this thread to keep me motivated and working harder to get back what I lost. And hoping to inspire other not to give up.;)

    Hope we can all share experiences and tips in the long run.:p

    Almost the same story happened to me....

    I have stared with sharecash and have been struggling at the begin, but within few months i was earning somewhere around 7$/day (and it was great for me because i don't have much free time), but then i have discovered a CPA and was even more satisfied with the results. After a month i was earning around 50$/day. This was all done with Youtube, but one day my account got deleted. Then all my earning dropped to few $ a day.

    I made a new Youtube account, but within 2 weeks it was deleted also.. Then i knew that i need to do something different, so i started learning Joomla and I'm currently building my own site....I know that it will be much harder than a Youtube promotion, but at least it's safer than Youtube. I'm not so great with SEO but I'm learning and I hope that it will bring some results.

    I will be happy to follow you climbing up to 200$/day, so maybe i will also get some ideas for myself.

    Good luck! :fing26:

    Great thanks, You are right I guess it\s safer thatn youtube, but I still believe YT its a goldmine, only that you have to play your cards right. I am still planning to try to get back that video on YT but I am doing differently ssince YT had recent changes. I wish the best for you as well

    Thanks a lot :)

    Great thread, I'll follow along with you as well. I'm new to the affiliate game but not new to marketing online. I'm currently sticking my hand in the Facebook Ad pot which has been interesting. Selling on a social media site is rough but it does work. Problem is, you have to front money to see what works. Talk about about cold marketing...

    If you don't mind me asking, which CPA network did you join up with? Being new, one the first hurdles I've had to jump over is getting accepted to a decent CPA network. I landed ClickBooth but I'm open to other besides the norms of CB and CJ.

    nice share and congrats on not letting education or anything else stand in your way.

    the key to success is taking every form of opposition that comes at you and turing it into a motivation a reason why you have to instead of why you cant.

    I havn't tried incorporating YouTube into my SEO efforts yet, for what reason do you guys get banned, what rules do you commonly break that I might need to look out for?

    I think that's true, but these downloads are coming from countries like uk, usa or similar. On the other side in CPA i get downloads from almost all countries. For these small countries i usually get around 0.10$ and for other countries i get usually around 3$

    Looks like you have a good niche,
    but you may look to find others, too.

    Just a quick tip ;)

    was really well written too, i'll definitely be following this thread

    do you mind sharing a few things about your YT campaign, and where you went wrong with it?

    just out of curiosity

    There is always a way to test w/out money upfront but its long term waiting resukt but if you are patient then is rewarding. I joined Adscendmedia and they have always paid me on time.

    You are right, its all about setting the right midset at every situation. giving up is not an option in my book.

    I hope so, at least it gets me inspired

    no, you get and averrage of .45 if its canada, uk, au and usa, otherwise its .25.

    Mainly for copyright, but YT has a problem that for every brand new video and it seems that regardless of what it is, as long someone flags you, it would almost instantly be removed for such reason was flagged.

    I thoight i said that, i need to check but thanks for correcting me.

    Yeah, that is better to work with cpa that getting paid only 5% - 10% to sc.

    I think it would be tough but its all part pf the learning process right? so u gotta do what u gotta do.

    Thanks for the tip, My noche its greeats, i rather get into the micro ones within it.

    This is how I started my campaign, I usually research until I find something thats going to bum, so basically i follow my instincts.

    I make my video and whatever is needed.

    Since I am one of the fews to be targeting that micro niche at first, I give my video a boost up with views and likes to make it an authority video.

    Afterwards when it gets lost of searches, if it gets flags, video wont be taken down because of age and authority.

    What did I do wrong?

    I uploaded a new video within the same account.
    When a video is new and someone flags it usually YT removed it right away. Regardless of what is the content about or if the users fraudently flagged it.

    I wish you luck OP as I'm kind of in the same boat.

    Finished high school started college for computer engineer, but I just can't pay attention and I'm failing.

    My first start was with sharecash and now I'm working on my first microniche site. So I hope this works out.
