    Hello everyone, my name is Chris (Cristian in my country) and I'm into IM for 1 and a half or probably 2 years, so I'm not really a total noob. I started making some nice money about an year ago. I did pretty much everything, PPD and Clickbank + YouTube, buying and selling e-books/ gaming accounts/ etc., promoting dating offers, building adult blogs and so on. Yeah I know it was wrong jumping from one thing to another, especially when I used to do money (more or less) with every single method I tried (yeah I am a bit retarded :D)
    The last method I used and focused only on that thing was building multiple adult websites (wp blogs) both tube and image ones and monetize them with ads. Promoted them on Reddit, Tumblr and so on because I like social media and for 2 months I made in average around 1000 bucks/ month. Then Tumblr started banning my blogs faster than I could make them (even using PRTB), the subreddit that was the main source of traffic for my websites got banned and I soon got from hero to zero, because of that huge mistake of keeping all my eggs on one basket, and this sums up my story until now.

    Reasons for creating this thread
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Now I created this journey thread here because:
    1) I need to be more organized and motivated, writing things down helps a lot. I thought why not do it here?
    2) Stop wasting my time on the various sections of this and other forums (also social websites) without doing much. Don't get me wrong I do take action, but I could do a lot more spending my time on IM, not wandering on forums or Facebook for no fucking reason.
    3) Sharing my progress with you guys.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    What the hell am I going to do?
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Well basicaly is going to be PPD + YouTube, at least for now. I want to do something I like (I never liked the adult niche sincerely). I did Clickbank + YouTube for a few months in the past with decent results, PPD...only tried it for a short time but I'm confident if I can get sales, I can also get downloads, plus I like the fact I don't have to wait a ton of time to get my $.
    The plan:
    - already made 3 Google/YT accounts, one verified with my phone number (1). (2) and (3) verified using K7.
    - (1) will be used for health/self-help niche, (2) for gaming, (3) for exchange softwares (u2bviews, enhanceviews etc.)
    - videos made in Animoto and uploaded directly on YouTube using images with free rights to use even commercialy
    - ALL my videos will promote things that do exist (plr ebooks, gaming beta keys) so I will deliver what I promise, no fakes (that niche is already so oversaturated anyway)
    - trying to create and upload as many videos as possible from Monday to Friday, in the weekend I will be doing keyword research, optimize my videos for search engines, add likes, views, etc. (at least now in the beginning)

    Today, since I don't have very much time left I will find a few keywords on my niches and files to upload as a starting point on my PPD accounts (Sharecash and Cleanfiles), I'll also try to create a few videos, but if I can't I'll do it tomorrow.

    I also need to catch up with everything that's going on concerning YouTube, since for the last half year probably I didn't do anything on YouTube and I know things change really fast.

    All in all I'm a wounded warrior after a battle where I thought I was winning, but I wasn't! Time to heal, make a wooden sword and start training. Because of the Christmas and New Year and everything a lot of people (which might be competitors) aren't doing this, that's the best reason I can have to do it right now! The winning army's soldiers are feeling good partying and relaxing, but a true warrior always looks forward to the next battle healing his wounds from the last and becoming stronger!

    You will see a lot of these analogies, which might look funny for you, but I think it will help me!
    :)

    First mini-goal: 5$/day! Let's go!

    Time to get to work, I'll try to update this journey daily if I can to keep track of what I got to do and what I did. See you tomorrow with the first update guys!

    I'm surprised K7 still works for verifying google accounts. I thought they didn't work anymore.

    Good luck white shadow!

    Thanks everyone!!!

    I think is all about niches + quality. Then quantity to scale it up.


    Thanks Kinlee, they still work, but for some reason if you check to receive the voice message only on e-mail and calls from everywhere it doesn't work, you will receive only the last 1 or 2 digits of the code. If you check to receive message both on website and e-mail and restrict calls to only Washington it works, dunno why.:D

    Update 1:
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    What I did yesyerday:

    - searched for some specific low competition niches and keyword, I think I might have found some, well got to test them to be sure
    - created 8 videos in Animoto, 3 for the health niche, 5 for gaming, all different and made to rank on one of those specific keywords, but didn't upload them yet

    Today I'll upload those videos, optimize for my keywords, writing long descriptions and all and just upload more videos for other niches and keywords. It seems YouTube didn't change a lot since I last used it, is just that the retention of the views is important now.

    I will try these first couple weeks I do this to just upload vids as much as possible for various sub-niches and keywords. Then I'll see which of them work fine or not and focus more on quality on those that work well.

    I'll update this thread later or tomorrow, cya guys!
