    In this thread I will be mainly tracking my improvements this year...

    I will try to include the most important things in my life currently (I am still in high school so if you're not looking to hear about teenager problems this is not the thread for you to follow).

    I will be tracking the growth of my YouTube channel as well as some other ventures.

    Current state:
    74 kg 178cm neckstubble virgin living in my mom's basement

    What I wish to achieve:
    - Dress nicer
    - Start university
    - Find a girlfriend (or someone to fuck)
    - 100,000 subscribers on my music blog on YouTube

    * please note, I am not a loser - I am just seriously have a lack of fucks to give towards 95% of people I meet.

    Now for the good part. What all you greedy fuckers want to know.
    What internet marketing stuff will I be doing? Now please note this isn't guaranteed as once I find the best methods I will stick to those and scale, but what's on my mind is SEO, Social Media (Instagram / Twitter), PPC, etc. I am experienced in all these fields.

    I am discontinuing my other thread "authority music service" journey; it will now be here.

    The main goal of this thread is for me to compare myself at the end of the year to what I was at the beginning.

    Today was a hard working day, scheduled 3 uploads for later this month because exam season is coming up. This month will have no downtime; I won't waste my time watching movies etc I will only be working because it is a crowded month that needs a lot of effort put into school and YouTube.

    I started posting in Google plus communities as suggested by a user in another thread I made. I also followed 50 people and reached my limit. A pretty good day for followers, enjoyed it. Stopped running my Instagram bot for a while because it was being inconsistent; updated it. Connected my Google plus page to my website.

    Tomorrow school starts again- I want to ask my friend to make me a sick banner for my YouTube channel.

    Today I uploaded another two tracks to be scheduled later this month. I did not lose any time, from the moment I woke up till now (2am almost) I have just been working on school & business.

    Good news 1: A producer I contacted decided to give me exclusivity to his track from a year ago that's nowhere to be found on YouTube.
    Good news 2: A large YouTuber (in the millions) used a track from my channel in his video, which has already given me over 500 views in the past day, not sure if the views have updated yet. If I get more views, the video will start ranking for something crazy... This is potential to be another hundred-thousand-view video.

    Get new YouTube banner

    So I got my YouTube banner done, ended up doing it by myself. In doing it I also discovered a new art form which I love.

    Bad news 1: some cunt copied my video. I got exclusive permission to upload the song and he just youtube-to-mp3d it and uploaded it on his channel as well.

    Good news 1: I avoided a copyright strike by deleting a video hours before a mass copyright wave...

    I've been uploading stuff without permission, someone tell me to stop!!

    I've been making "authority videos" that are guaranteed to get me views long term. Buying a few views etc to get a rank boost. Working out fine so far...

    Well, as you've already made 5 posts in this thread without a single reply within a 20 day period, I suppose I should break the ice here.

    You seem to be determined in what you're doing and you're taking action which instantly puts you in the bracket of the minority. Keep it up.

    Yeah thanks I had a thread before (started in like Oct or Nov) and I had a few posts but it was only focused on my YouTube channel. Now I turned into a yearly thread type of thing.

    A good increase!

    & Also I'm changing up the thread. I'll no longer be posting any word updates, I'll focus on the numbers unless something is especially different.

    I will be answering everyone's questions though...so, ask away.

    Yeah, I guess you're right. But I'm not taking it too harshly.

    1. Since I'm going to be at home for a while I'm going to take time to optimize all the necessary videos, in order to have bigger gains.
    2. My #1 video hit 400,000 views, hooray.
    3. I am on track to having 10 videos that are bringing in consistent views, another hooray. Not all of my experiments have been successful but almost 10 have, so that's good. Minimal cost too.
    4. I'm postponing the "Instagram empire" as it's not very autopilot and that is what I need right now.

    Deleted my old videos and I'm in the process of reuploading them with the new logo. Maybe some of my fans will be pissed but I literally could not give less shits.

    Yesterday I created a viral Facebook video and bought $5 of advertising... So far with $2 spent it has a paid reach of 7,000 and organic reach of 16,000 with total views of 7,500. I think that's pretty good if you ask me. It's also semi related to my Facebook page so that means all the new likes coming in are targeted.

    Yesterday I requested to upload a song on my channel and the record label approved me within 30 seconds via message... Perfect.

    I started running follow Liker on my Instagram once again.

    I am once again able to walk post surgery. Life is going well and I will be back to school tomorrow.

    I also created a new website with Amazon reviews (will be applying for azon associates soon) and made an account on CPAlead.

    Oh also I got accepted into the university program I wanted so there's that. Shits starting to go right.

    Made a G2a account maybe I'll get started with that. Got a new record of 47 subscribers in 1 day. One of my friends is creating a next level platform, it is going to be awesome.

    I'm starting to try new things on social media. Don't know how I'll start, but at the moment I'm creating 2 accounts a day on: Instagram, Reddit, Tumblr, Pinterest, Twitter. I'll build up to 30 on each, probably in 1 niche. We'll see how it works.

    In terms of YouTube channel, I've uploaded some sick remixes of current popular songs, so I think that will work well once I boost them with views, likes, socials etc.

    I'm also looking for an addmefast bot, idk how that is going to work.

    My current goals are to automate everything I can, and just be able to press a 'traffic button' where I get thousands of views upon a click of a button, if you know what I mean.

    Yes, I'm OK. I got the surgery, I am going to find out what kind of treatment I need in about a week. I consider it to just be a delay.
