    Hi everyone. I'm Barry and I'm looking forward to starting my first journey here on BHW. I've been registered for a long time with another account but I've created a new account because I lost the password... and I feel like starting a fresh anyways.

    A few years ago before all my time got allocated to my web design business I was making a fair bit of money from CPA and Adsense. I miss those days of seeing £100 accumulate over the day in front of my eyes. So I'm looking to continue where I left off and try to reach the £100/day milestone using adsense on websites, CPA/PPD with websites and YouTube traffic. I'm currently just researching all the latest techniques and trying to get up to date with everything.

    My progress so far this month (I started on the 22nd):

    Adsense websites:
    Website 1: £22.36


    PPD/CPA:
    YouTube Traffic:
    Video 1: £0
    Video 2: £27.12

    Right now I'm trying to get my website set up with a content locker so I can hopefully get a higher conversion rate than just using sharecash.
    I'm also setting up some GSA campaigns for my websites and doing keyword research for another niche.
    I've recorded and edited about 7 different videos ready to upload to YouTube. I'm thinking of doing a video every other day so I can try different techniques on each video and see what ones make the biggest difference in views/leads.

    That's all I have for now. I'll update again tomorrow. If you have any tips for me or perhaps a question or two don't hesitate to contact me.

    Added another video today. Trying something a little different and trying to get it to rank. We'll see how that goes. I've also got some decent ideas for niches to SEO on Google for, instead of YouTube traffic. I've kept more up to date with SEO than I have YouTube traffic so hopefully this will be an easier option for me.

    Current stats:

    Adsense websites:
    Website 1: £22.41




    PPD/CPA:
    YouTube Traffic:
    Video 1: £0
    Video 2: £27.12
    Video 3: £0

    Setup the website today, no change in earnings. I'm looking to plan out everything for the entire month today (not precisely, because things often change but the general outline of what I'm going to do)

    I've decided my goal for the end of the month is £1000. It's quite an ambitious goal but I genuinely think I can do it. I've outsourced all of my web design work so I can literallly work all day, everyday on it.

    Wish me luck :) Will post more updates soon.

    Right so I made about £40 odd last month, considering I started on the 22nd that's not too bad.
    I'll start my stats fresh this month, and here they are:

    Adsense websites:
    Website 1: £0.93


    PPD/CPA:
    YouTube Traffic:
    Video 1: £0
    Video 2: £0
    Video 3: £0
    Video 4: £0

    Not very impressive, at all. But not to fear I have no intention of giving up just yet. Even if there are no signs of hope or improvement I will continue tweaking my methods and attempting until the month is up. (although doubt has already began to slip into my mind I won't let it take over)

    Today I added a new video and I'm again trying a different method of getting visits. This is the same method I used years ago but I figured I might as well give it a try, some methods never die.
    I want to work more on the website tomorrow. I'm not sure whether to use a blogspot account or register a domain. I don't mind spending a bit of money but when I look at the websites ranking for my keywords a lot of the higher ranking sites are actually blogspot websites. So I'm thinking maybe blogspot would perhaps even be an advantage over a domain name. What do you guys think?

    Right so today I've added another video and I decided I'm not going to work on the CPA website until I reach the $50 payout for sharecash (got about $5 left to go). Once I have the payout I'll change to a content locking system with AWM and use cleanfiles for the PPD portion.

    Stats for today:

    Adsense websites:
    Website 1: £3.35




    PPD/CPA:
    YouTube Traffic:
    Video 1: £0.37
    Video 2: £0.52
    Video 3: £0
    Video 4: £0
    Video 5: £0


    Total profit this month so far: £4.24

    It's not much, but there's improvement! As long as there's improvement I'm happy.

    So today I went a bit crazy with niche research and came up with a list of precisely 200 good quality niches (or I suppose you could call them micro niches) where I can create a product that people want and lock it with CPA/PPD. Also the audience of these niches is exactly the kind of person who would fill out a survey to get a download.

    At the moment I have enough edited videos to last me about a week, each day I will upload one and optimize it and also continue optimizing the rest of the videos but on a smaller scale.

    Aside from uploading the videos I already have I plan on creating the nessecary videos/content/programs etc for these 200 niches in bulk. For example first I'll create 200 programs/ebooks/whatever (I call them props), then I'll create 200 raw videos then I'll edit the 200 raw videos.

    This might seem like it will take forever... And it probably will but if there's one thing I do well it's automating things. Any process that I can automate along the way I will (provided it doesn't effect the quality of the end product too much).

    Current stats this month:

    Adsense websites:


    Organic SEO Traffic:
    Website 1: £3.36


    PPD/CPA:


    YouTube Traffic:
    Video 1: £0.76
    Video 2: £0.52
    Video 3: £0
    Video 4: £0
    Video 5: £0
    Video 6: £0




    Total profit this month so far: £4.64


    When I do the redesign of the website and integrate content locking instead of just PPD I'm thinking of including PPI as well. I thought PPI died ages ago but apparently it's still going strong. If I can get it so they have to completed a CPA offer, then a PPD offer and then they install my PPI software I think I will have truly milked it as far as it can go LOL.

    I've created another site Adsense site today in a good niche, with high CPC and low competition. Just under 10k searches per month all keywords, but should be easy to rank.
    Set up a GSA campaign for the website and also have begun building some manual links.

    Uploaded another video, not doing so well with the YouTube traffic lately but I know this is just because I've been testing different methods of marketing them. Next week I'll decide on which method worked best and continue to use that one (and improve upon it ofc)

    Current stats this month:


    Adsense websites:




    Organic SEO Traffic:
    Website 1: £3.96
    Website 2: £0




    PPD/CPA:




    YouTube Traffic:

    Video 2: £0.52
    Video 3: £0
    Video 4: £0
    Video 5: £0
    Video 6: £0
    Video 7: £0

    Still seeing a steady increase in conversions. I just need to perfect my methods and then scale it up big time. Working on a plan to produce all the content and videos for mass upload.
    Not sure whether I'll upload them all to one channel or separate into groups. Probably will separate into groups but will have to spend a bit on proxies and PVAs. I'll have to do the math see how much I need. I was hoping to do this without investing any money at all. Although I'm willing to spend some if I need to... I just thought it would be cool to do it for free.


    Current stats this month:




    Adsense websites:




    Organic SEO Traffic:
    Website 1: £7.11
    Website 2: £0




    PPD/CPA:

    Video 2: £0.52
    Video 3: £0
    Video 4: £0
    Video 5: £0
    Video 6: £0
    Video 7: £0
    Video 8: £3.46
    Video 9: £4.45

    I'm still experimenting with my YouTube marketing methods. Some are proving to be more useful than others. It's hard to determine which aspects of the methods are making the biggest differences though. We'll see. Almost halfway through the month and we're nowhere near our target, but I'm slowly zoning in on proper technique for ranking and marketing videos. As soon as I can come up with a decent plan I can execute on all my videos I'll scale it up big time and churn out as many videos as I can.


    Current stats this month:


    Adsense websites:


    Organic SEO Traffic:
    Website 1: £8.53
    Website 2: £0




    PPD/CPA:


    Okay so I kinda lost track of what file is for what video etc so until I can organize it all I'll just post my overall profit for all my videos.


    YouTube Traffic:
    Video count: 10
    Profit: £10.86


    Total profit this month so far: £19.39

    Barry, not sure if you're already doing this but I have had great success ranking my youtube videos on google as well as ranking them on youtube. I only mention this because I use GSA to do it and since you are already a GSA user you might want to give it a try.

    I was ranking first page on youtube for a KW with 4500 LMS and then noticed the same KW on google gets 3600 LMS. I started to build backlinks using GSA and within a week I was #1 rank on google for that KW.

    Just some food for thought.
