    Hey BHW Community,

    I have some questions about this CPA + Youtube Method what everyone is currently doing. Because I can not get hold of it.

    The thing I do know at the moment:

    * Niche Finding
    * Video Creation / Ranking (I got a legit youtube account with loads of views)
    * Dedication :D

    The things I really do not know at the moment:

    * Making a landing page or a website in any form.
    * How to content lock your website

    What I have done so far:

    * I have found a great niche (well that is what I think).
    * I have made a wordpress account and made an awful looking page.
    * Spent 6 hours today on finding out how to content lock and make a website.

    So My questions is now, what should I do. I got my niche and I can make some quality videos in this niche without too much time and after that I can rank those videos after some youtube views/likes/comments. You should download the product.

    But how do I make a landing page? I should buy a domain name right? But I am afraid that after buying the domain name. 1st my niche is shit, 2nd I don't know how to manage everything with hosting/domain things. I have never worked with that before.

    But alright lets suggest I have made a landingpage and hosting and everything is setup how do I content lock it? Or is a PDD Site better like Sharecash or fileice? (I can't get accepted on fileice)

    I hope someone is kind enough to help me :)

    If everything is setup I will start a journey on this forum. I will do that to keep myself motivated and I will do it to motivate other people


    Cheers :D

    KEEP THINGS SIMPLE and not over-complicate things. The challenge with most people is that they over-complicate things to a point where no action is taken.

    When I first started out CPA and YouTube marketing back in 2009, all I did was the flow chart below.

    1) Signed up for incentivized CPA networks (go to affpaying.com to find out which ones that are incent friendly and have content lockers)

    2) Picked a niche

    3) Registered a .info domain name and hosting - A .info domain name is suffice because you're not really doing any SEO to the site since you're doing video marketing. Hosting could be about $3-$6 per month with sites like HostGator or JustHost (I use JustHost)

    4) Found a wordpress theme that suited my audience and installed it to WordPress

    5) Created a couple of posts with download links

    6) Content lock the page with the script that's given to you by your CPA Network to paste in between <head> and </head>. Some networks actually have a wordpress plugin of their own to make the whole thing easier for publishers

    7) Once the foundation is laid out, I then went on to create videos, video optimized them and uploaded them

    8) Back in 2009, just video optimization alone could rank your videos but it isn't the case now so you've gotta boost your videos with views, likes, comments, subscribers

    9) Send backlinks if you're wanting to rank in Google search and track your rankings

    10) Visitors from the video goes to your site, sees the content locker and if your content behind the content locker is desperately needed by your audience, they will fill in the CPA offer

    11) Track, Optimize and Scale your traffic and conversions.

    It's as easy as that really.

    Thanks for the quick reply man! But how did you learn how to work with websites? I am so afraid I am going to put my money on a website which I can't monetize. And I am also afraid that I don't find a good niche. So my domain name is wasted money.

    How did you do that?

    How about you just buy some random monthly hosting just to test and try out the things you may think could work out for you? It's called learning by doing. I started that way and I'm doing pretty well today.

    Several threads talk about how they are using free websites, such as blogger or using a free domain names. That may be a good option , no initial capital outlay.

    My pleasure.

    If I may be frank, if you are afraid to spend a couple of bucks to test things out, then IM isn't for you. And it's not even a lot of money. Here's the breakdown for you:

    Domain: .info (99 cents) - Since you're marketing through YouTube, you won't be looking at ranking your sites but rather your videos.

    Hosting: $3-$5 per month for multiple sites.

    I honestly don't see what the risk. Even if you happen to be working at a job, an hour's wage will cover multiple .info domain names and your monthly web hosting.

    You're afraid that you are in the wrong niche. Here's my two cents on it.

    1) I don't believe there is such a thing as "wrong" niche. We've seen really shitty products and services in our life so far that are incredibly successful. Why are there companies who create shitty products and services yet they're successful? Because they got their marketing done really well man. Just like how people say this method or that method is saturated. There is no such thing as saturated. The only reason why a method is saturated is because people copy it to the tee without having their own twists or unique angle.

    2) Can't really remember who said this but a guy was asked how was he able to make great judgement/decisions. His response was making bad judgements/decisions and actually LEARNING from it. It's the same thing here man. How do you ultimately find the "good" niches that you speak of? By getting into "bad" niches and learning from it.

    Like I said earlier, most people complicate things. I was a victim of that before. If you are to sit down and analyze, it leads to paralysis. No action taken, you're not gonna make money.

    It's not rocket science my friend.
