    Hey guys! I've been lurking on the concept of Internet Marketing for a couple of weeks now, and one of the recurring themes that has been jammed down everyone's throat the most is TAKE ACTION.

    It's so easy, and yet easier said than done. Well, after absorbing the information I could in theory, I'm finally deciding to make some moves!!!

    Status: Accepted to CleanFiles two days ago
    Two Gaming niche videos up on the same account, planning on separating videos from now on for a "just in case" on bans.
    Landing page made for one of them, the other is a direct download with a .rar lock inside another .rar. I figured it'd work decently seeing as someone invested enough of their time and interest to download the first one.
    So far the direct download w/o a landing page is driving much more traffic than the landing page

    Earnings Day 1: $0.43
    Earnings Day 2: $0.57Earnings Day 3: $3.01

    I'll be updating at least once a day, though I'm always here so most likely many times a day answering questions and such.

    If anyone has advice, I'm more than happy to accept anything to boost my progress. Trial and error is painful lol

    Well, here's to a great start(I think) to a hopefully happy journey!

    TL;DR
    didn'tread.gif I wanna make some money. :O Cheers!

    My advice for you is to try and get accepted into a couple of cpa networks because in ppd the site always takes a percentage of your commission.And good luck to your journey :)

    Thank you, and good luck to you as well. It's disheartening when I see daily earners of $400+, but they started had to start somewhere right? Never give up!

    So do CPA networks take a smaller commission or nothing at all? I also heard it was more difficult to get accepted to networks.

    Commented on a bunch of videos with similar keywords in my niche(Only promoting one DL at the moment, want to scale up slowly so I don't get overwhelmed in trying to manage myself)
    It's been driving really good traffic, though I'm getting average-ish conversion rates.

    Any thoughts?

    Thank you so much! Do you have any tips for me? I know people say to scale up, but I have difficulty finding more verticals with potential without heavy saturation. Something someone told me defied the opposite of usual things, which is
    There's plenty of traffic for everyone in saturated niches
    My current best keyword is from heavy saturation, but I'd like to find a gold mine unfulfilled one... Any tips?

    What I have learned on my journey is that you will never find that perfect niche. Just do as much work as possible and visualize and analyze your goals every day. There are tens to hundreds of thousands of games out there that people are playing. Games are released every single day. Just keep working and making videos and traffic will come. It will however, never come by researching. The data will be in the results. Upload videos and figure out which ones perform the best and then figure out why.

    Anyway good luck with your journey man!

    Cheers,

    I've slowly started realizing that haha... I'm aiming to stay away from gaming in lieu of the huge traffic solely because there are also more tech savvy players than in any other niche which would pose more problems than I want to handle lol.
    I may give health and fitness a go, though I'm having difficulty coming up with the "solution to people's problems" in terms of a product to offer. Gaming is easy in that respect because we all know people want free stuff and huge advantages in a competitive spectrum like that =/

    Anywho, I've got a lot of brainstorming to do lol Tonight I'm going to find another hot niche, make a video and do some promotion for my first video!

    Earning so far today: $4.02
    Total: $7.60

    It's a start... haha

    The results are in!
    Today's final earnings were: $4.97
    Total: $8.55

    Making big progress but I smell a standstill if I don't find another high quality niche ASAP. I'm off to promote more before I sleep, and find another niche/create a solution. Cheers!

    Eventually switch from PPD to CPA, that will increase your earnings! :)

    Keep up the good work, you will reach your goal in no time! :D

    Thank you for the good wishes! I'm hoping to make some big headway in a big way with a backlink campaign after doing some heavy tactic studying last night. The best to way to generate backlinks quickly just didn't make sense to me at first!

    If anyone has any recommended guides or the like that would help in Link Building, I'd love you forever, but for now trial and error is doing decently haha.

    Earnings today so far: $0.68

    When it comes to PPD, the gaming niche is pretty much the best you're going to get. But if you really want to try something else, you could always try free premium accounts, Paypal money generators -- very saturated although a video I made actually got me some decent traffic -- and tools to hack accounts such as Facebook -- again, very saturated. I strongly stand by my words of think less do more. To give you an idea, I don't even check potential traffic. It's a waste of time and very unpredictable -- especially if its for a brand new game that just came out. I haven't even boosted any of my videos yet, although I probably will in the future.

    Of course, if you want to have a huge variety of niches at your doorstep, get into Clickbank and Youtube. You won't see results right away, but results come eventually. Once I have some extra cash I'm going to have some videos made and really get into Clickbank in order to have another steady stream of income.

    Anyway, good luck once again.

    Cheers,

    I think I'm going to take that advice at face value. Think less, Do more!

    Today I'll be jumping at two semi competitive verticals, uploading 3 videos(one finished from last night) and boosting them to oblivion.

    Earnings still $0.68 today

    I'm betting on some more conversions throughout the day, but I'd be stupid to wait for them when I could do more now!
    In regards to ranking videos higher, I'm not clear on how to generate backlinks properly(though I do have plenty of social signals it doesn't seem to be making the difference BLs do from my understanding), nor how long I should wait to expect for them to be crawled through search engines.

    Is there any particular workflow or procedure I should be applying gurus?

    Thanks for all the support, I won't quit until I have an empire!!!

    Side-note: I have Hitleap Premium, and have been sending ridiculous amount of views using that, but it ultimately has not been crediting for most views(by that I meant 90% of them, maybe more)
    Anyone else have experience with this?

    Use GSA for backlinks and use u2bviews for boosting videos.

    Do you use the free version or do you think it's worth the investment?

    End of the day and I realized why I wasn't earning....
    User error! I accidentally removed a letter in a url whilst editing my description on youtube and voila. No earnings.
    That being said, I caught it early enough to make some earnings, so in the last two hours or so here are my earnings!

    Today: $4.07
    Total: $12.62

    I'm proud of that I suppose for 2 hours of earning today after investigation. Thanks again for all the support guys!
