Hey, My name is Jeff, been in CPA, and some other affiliate marketing stuff since 2012 I think, just as a side income thing, and the whole affiliate marketing was and still is an interesting idea but haven't really pushed myself any longer than a couple of weeks at a time (tryhard for a couple of weeks, watch the money for a year, not the best strategy by far, and I realise that... ) And haven't met my goal of 100$ a day, but was pretty close a couple of years back. It's just that whenever I started yearning 50$ or more per day, I got unmotivated as that's a pretty decent amount where I am from, nothing to brag about, but money flows and I get lazy, I'll try to fight that this time, not stopping for as long as it's needed. A bit about my relathionship with CPA: Around 2012 The first-ever network was ShareCash, just locking .txt with fake key files and making generator videos on YT, didn't earn much as I didn't know how to rank that well even though it was super easy and also as lots of traffic from YT knew sharecash and hated it., but it was a start, then I searched for a decent network that I could work on until I landed on FileIce in 2013 to 2014, which is where I started making a bit more cash, still being lazy and earning this in a year: This was when I was still in school about 16 years old, from 5 or maybe even fewer videos, as I said, I was lazy, didn't reinvest the money or anything, just spent it all on fun late 2016 Didn't do anything much until 2016 when I decided to try yt+cpa thing again, searched for a decent network again, landed on adludum, made at least two vids in a couple of weeks and got mostly this from 2 months+small amounts up until the start of 2018: And didn't do any videos yet again until, start of 2018 That's when I decided I'd try a bit harder and that I would need to move on from adludum, so needed a new network, decided to try OGAds, and moved some of my leftover traffic from adludum, transition went well, and I decided to work with OGAds and their mobile app installs, decided to make at least 15 videos and get them ranked top 5 on low-medium volume search and same comp, before I can think about stopping, so I somehow managed to not stop and do it: but then I just watched the money roll in, and didn't make any videos yet again, also at that time YT HR views were getting cracked down almost every other week, so been getting around 50$ every week or every other week from leftover videos from 2018, in total I got this amount with OGAds 2018-now: The end, that's probably a boring story of my relationship with affiliate marketing, sorry, I don't post many threads. at the moment So today I read https://www.blackhatworld.com/members/mrnixdorf.874631/ journey thread going to 500$/day, enjoyed reading about how he's trying to reach his goals and here I am, starting my own journey, with a smaller goal, but a goal nonetheless. And so I hope I'll be able to push myself harder by sharing my current goals and weekly or maybe daily updates about them. Anyway, in the past month made around 5 new videos, uploaded them and they ranked around top 1-10, comp is medium, volume medium, and I am having trouble ranking for #1, so here are the stats from OGAds, past 10 days: oh and I am currently trying another network for desktop, but I don't get that much desktop traffic, so not even worth mentioning. 2019/11/06 Current Goals, and % progress : Reach 100$/day for at least 2 days straight [25%] 2019/11/06 Game plan: Getting some decent aged YT accounts. Uploading at least 3 videos a week + more if possible (creating websites+videos+account warm-up and so on). Trying not to overspend when testing ranking strategies lol, so a bit more planning should solve it. And that's pretty much it, for now, I think. Future CPA goals: Marketing with paid ads Youtube high search volume ranking for #1 Google ranking Thanks for reading if you did read it. Also, not going to explain how I rank or make videos or websites or anything in detail, so refrain from asking if possible, I am not doing anything special, just what most youtube cpa/cpi/pin and such, guys are doing.
