    I saw an old thread regarding youtube commenting and lead generation. I know spamming my domain will result my comments get ghosted, but using a trick and google alerts, i was able to generate 30 unique targeted leads toward my website.

    So my question is how cold traffic convert with clickbank direct linking using domain redirection? I call it cold because the leads are just niche targeted and don't come from <product> review videos. Also i know it would be efficient to use squeeze pages, but i have nothing to give my leads also i'm not very good at writing. My plan is to use facebook pixels to grab my visitors so i will able to advertise them cheaply afterwards.

    If i was able to make like $8/hour with this "method" i would totally share all my experience with the bhw community, currently i'm just looking for solutions to scaling up the things. Should i continue what i'm doing or 30 targeted leads are bad for 1 hour of work?

    Any suggestions, notes etc regarding my plan?

    EDIT: Also i hate promoting CPA offers, because i have very bad experience with it. Clickbank just seems to be more safe.
    Well actually i thought trough squeeze pages, and maybe they are not very hard to get them made... and i could use the newsletters provided by my vendor. Any website that may help me to create converting squeeze pages?
    Thanks

    I've done review type videos with decent results. I did however use a landing page (no redirect).

    The quality of the review will also affect conversion rates. So keep that in mind.

    I dont believe a person would buy something just because some guy commented on youtube video . At least I would be kind of suspicious. But prove me wrong ! If you get some sales be sure to share it with us :)

    Yes, Convert.
    If its really, nobody can promote Affiliate Product. Just think how people making money by promoting affiliate product ? Most of the affiliate making review content.

    I always read user review before I buy anything.

    This kind of traffic (I think), would work better with CPA offers since most of them do not require any kind of buying.Anyway, that's just my opinion... Why don't you make the videos yourself?

    Well actually i am able to automate the whole process of commenting and still avoid the spam radar. It's just easier for me than ranking a video.

    Nice job.

    First, I don't know shit about facebook pixels but it seems like you're over complicating things.

    Cold youtube traffic converts just fine. In the end it always depends on the keyword AND the content. I've had some marketers tell me certain keywords don't convert, like "how to stop masturbating". Then I redid the content as well as I could, ranked the video and it converted. The video was banned of course but I have done this in so many other niches. And the simple fact is, if your keyword selection is good, if you know what you're doing, if you can generate converting content than YT traffic WILL convert.

    I have YT videos with domain redirects that go straight to the sales page and convert at 32%.

    Honestly, 30 "targeted leads" doesn't mean much unless those leads are converting. If you told me "those 30 leads converted to $10-$20 in commissions"... then I might think you're onto something and have potential to optimize and scale.

    But you didn't write that. And I don't really understand your method that much in the first place.

    It's a confusing plan cause I don't really understand what you're doing.

    AFAIK you're setting up Google alerts & spamming YT to drive traffic. Google alerts can definitely be scaled up. But comment spamming is another story. I'm yet to see 1 successful journey on this site where someone was able to scale and consistently make money with comment spam and CB. Not to mention, I have many YT videos driving hops/sales to CB. I've had a lot of guys spam my channels with comments and it does NOTHING to reduce my overall hops and sales which tells me that comment spamming is a shitty way of driving traffic.

    There are always exceptions. Like automation, tons of proxies and accounts, etc but I think your comments and accounts will get banned so fast, bugs with software, all sorts of problems that will make it impossible to scale.

    I wasnt talking about review videos or websites , in fact I make youtube review videos and know how it converts . I was talking about what OP said about youtube comments . It just looks so spammy , normal people wont buy something from a link they saw on a spam link . And the guy above made my point stronger .

    I think if you're going to put this much work into it then do it right. By that I mean make your own youtube videos, landing page, and convert them the correct way. Spamming youtube comments doesn't really convert since that's actually worse than someone buying from their spam box.

    Thats interesting. Im sure you cant get 1 in 10 buying with clickbank , but if you can get some decent hops , it might get interesting , I will try it out for sure .

    You can use youtube as a google page and set your name to a web address. so basically your www domain is the channel name. This way you dont have to give them the link, only just mention your website in the comment. Also i always write my replies manually (planning to spin them) and try to accost the video creator this way my comments remain sticky

    Thank you all for the useful suggestions, i read them all and took them into account. I ended up with a product with the gravity of 8 and bought a domain on godaddy for $1.49 (duh) also hired a designer to create me a simple squeeze page. I am really excited about the whole thing, i hardly can wait to capture my first leads. Wish me good luck :)

    I will post the results right there.
