    On February 27th, 2013...

    I started a journey; I set out to achieve what most beginning IMers dream of: $100/day.

    Exactly 99 days of hard work, determination, and posting on BHW every night before sleep went by before I finally reached my goal.

    When I started, I had no idea how I was going to reach that $100/day goal. My plan was to learn and evolve as the journey went on... and I did just that.

    To reference this past journey, you can visit the link here:
    [JOURNEY] $100 a day-- Won't stop until I reach my goal!

    In the end, I was able to reach my goal by promoting Clickbank products through videos that I ranked for certain search terms on Google.

    Several months have gone by since the journey ended. Lately, I've been teaching people my video ranking methods... even creating products based around my journey.

    Currently, me and my partner are creating a software that automates the entire process of my video ranking strategy.

    Needless to say, I haven't been giving my old videos or clickbank account the attention that they deserve; my earnings have dropped slightly but the commissions are still coming in slowly.

    Anyways, I was reminiscing on my old journey thread and it got me thinking... if I could go from $0 to $100/day in 99 days without any previous knowledge, how far could I take a journey thread now with the knowledge and past experiences that I have?

    So here I am...

    and I've set the bars high. I'm going to reach $1,000 a day.

    I will post on this thread every day with my daily earnings and daily spend to keep you updated.

    This is how my Clickbank account currently reads:


    Fri Jan 10 $26.59
    Thu Jan 09 $152.74
    Wed Jan 08 $30.02
    Tue Jan 07 $155.39
    Mon Jan 06 $17.98
    Sun Jan 05 $294.08
    Sat Jan 04 $0.00
    Fri Jan 03 $48.92
    Thu Jan 02 $32.92
    Wed Jan 01 $107.55
    Tue Dec 31 $17.98
    Mon Dec 30 $142.45
    Sun Dec 29 $0.00
    Sat Dec 28 $31.41
    Fri Dec 27 $126.75
    When this journey is complete, those numbers will all be above $1,000.

    I'm starting from scratch with the videos... I do have 3 videos that I haven't tried to rank yet, but the girl has an accent that is hard to understand, and I'm not sure if I want to spend the time and money to rank them yet.

    My plan is to start slow; I will rank one video at a time for larger keywords with a higher search volume.

    Tomorrow ​will be Day 1.

    Stay tuned folks, things are about to get interesting.

    It's one of those things that's hard to scale as the vids get removed and accounts get banned.

    Nice to see your trying to parlay it into more by creating a product and blog selling info.
    Stuff like this has been done a million times but that doesn't matter. Write great content,
    create good products and build a list. Good luck.

    Edit: I just saw your post on ranking that awesome keyword - 2 months later and you've
    got 70k more views and at #3, impressive.

    Edit #2: That girl is awesome, fiverr's got some great talent.

    Right right. I couldn't agree more.

    And of course, it will be tough to scale to $1,000/day... However, I have taken more of a white hat approach with my videos and since my last journey, only one video has been flagged.

    With that being said, it can be done... and I will do it :)

    Hey Wyatt - didn't know you were a BHW member, cool!

    Have been following you and Dev for a while over at MM and trying my hand at videos with mixed success. Can you tell us a little more about the white hat strategies you're employing with your vids now? Best of luck reaching$1,000/day :)

    All great IMers come from BHW! It's the best forum ever :D

    As far as white hat video marketing goes:

    - Small number of YouTube accounts
    - Quality Videos
    - Absolutely no mass video uploading

    That's about it.

    Cheers!

    This journey is completely from scratch... has nothing to do with our blog, product launches, promotions, services or any other stream of money.

    OK, cool. Are you able to shed a little light on how you get your vids to rank? I've done exactly as you've said in your money-mindset videos to rank, yet i'm just not getting the results. Really want to know where I am going wrong.
    Thanks for any advice man :)

    Well, there really is no secret.

    Chances are that you're just not building enough back links for the term(s) that you're trying to rank for. Make sure you build a diverse amount of links to the video :)

    Thanks for the reply Wyatt.

    Ok, but are there any programs you use to automate your link building etc? Also, do you drip-feed your views? Do you use things like Vagex? I recently got a video removed for using either vagex or enhanceviews. Thanks very much man :)

    Yes to rank youtube videos you need to blast a bunch of backlinks, and keep doing it until the video gets organic views. Then it'll get in the recommended section and views will come double as fast.

    Good luck, seems a great journey!

    I did use GSA for link building in the past, but I haven't used it lately... Although, I'll probably break it out for this journey.

    I don't drip feed views, but I buy high retention views from places like ytview.com
