    Hello guys! Lately I've been reading a lot but, haven't really taken any action. I'm totally new to yt + CPA and I have NO experience what so ever in it. Actually I'm an entrepeneur. I've build systems, software and mobile apps for my self and others and I really like spending a lot of time reading online about Internet Marketing, but as said earlier. I really need to take action and start to work, with that said I hope this journey should keep me motivated so that I'll reach my goal soon.

    My plan is to make $100 a day using CPA. I have created a landing page for my niche and used ulock.it for content locking for the "call-to-action" page. I will getting the traffic from YouTube, were I've recently uploaded my first video that contains some clips that are related to my niche and while I'm speaking in the background and convincing the viewer that they really SHOULD visit the page in the description, to my landing page.

    What I got
    - Photoshop and UI/UX skills
    - Programming skills in C#, Java, Asp.NET, Php and a bunch of scripting languages
    - Making simple videos using Vegas or movie maker or w/e.

    What I think I got
    - Skills in SEO and gaining traffic

    What I did so far:
    - Created a landing page, and locked the "call-to-action" section with ulock.it
    - Created a YouTube video that are trying to get the viewers to that particular landing page
    - Used u2bviews for getting 600 views and 600 likes to my video
    - Also did buy 5-6 nice comments from u2bviews to make the video look legit

    As I'm writing now, the video have been up for 45 minutes and the page for like 2-3 hours.
    This is the results this far:

    Clicks: 0
    Leads: 0

    Income: $0.00

    So, beucase of the fact that this is my first YouTube + CPA project I really do apreciate a lot of suggestions and proposals on how I should act in order to improve my results. If something is unclear, just ask.

    Will be updating every day, I hope...

    Thank you for pointing that out. I guess like 200 would be enough. Are there any point of rent subscribers from u2bviews?

    I think the ratio of views / likes are like 100 / 8 or something like that. So it would be like 600 views and about 48 likes.

    Cheers & Good Luck :)

    Btw, how many views/likes do you usually need before the real viewers start to come to you?

    It should be about 100 / 5, maybe even a little less.

    You do that. :)

    I got it for free (don't remember from where ^.-). I think that it's high quality, I modified it a little bit to really give the "call-to-action" feeling for one single button. Otherwise, yep I downloaded it.

    Two questions that came up was. 1. Should the YouTube title be short or long? I mean like "Hockey Method" or like "The best hockey method 2012"? 2. What are the main factors that make you find your video on #1 or #2 page for the selected keywords?

    It doesnt matter what method you use, but make sure you have the keyword in the title, description (unique) and the tags - then optimize it, backlinks, social media etc..

    Summary of Day 1

    I've made SOOO much money today. Well, not really. But I guess I only got myself to blame. Because of the fact that this really was my first day into YouTube + CPA, I don't feel dumb just because I did not succeed from day one. I've been there before, not with yt + cpa but In a lot of other projects and the only thing that matters is that you keep you well motivated in order to reach your final goal.

    What I've done today


    • Picked my first niche
    • Created a new YouTube account, no proxy were or VPN were used.
    • Created my first REAL video were I recorded my voice while trying to convince the viewer that they should visit my link in the description.
    • Created two less-quality slideshow videos using that YouTube video editor.
    • Used the same keywords for all the videos since they are in the same niche. It's like 9-10 keywords.
    • Written an unique description for each video, but all containing the a shrinked link to my landing page.
    • Used the EXACT keywords as the titles of the videos. (is this good? lol)
    • Renting views and likes to my videos from EnchanceViews and u2bviews. Like 100 views and 12 likes on each video.

    Stats today

    Clicks:
    2 (I'm embarrassed to say that those clicks are by me on two different locations)
    Leads: 0
    Earnings: $0.00
    EPC: $0.00
    Expense: $0.00
    Result: $0.00

    Plans tomorrow

    I will try to add two more videos to the very same landing page and niche tomorrow and start to think about a new niche. I guess 5 videos per niche and landing page is enough? As you've probably understood I'm a little bit confused into this YouTube + CPA thing but hey I've already learned a lot (I think). Proposals and thoughts are more than welcome.

    Seems like my niche were way to saturated. I think It will take months to get to the #1 or #2 page using the keywords for that niche. But, as I've said many times, this is my first time using YouTube + CPA so there will ofc be a learning curve. Anyway, keeping those videos for that niche on that YouTube account and I won't touch them at all I think. Starting with a new niche now with a lot less competition, gonna upload like 5 slideshow videos with some nice convincing text, also making a new landing page that all those videos will be leading to. Will still use those "***.comli.com" adresses, since they are free. As soon as the money starts to flow in, I will be buying real domains.
