    Hello Guys,

    I'm opening this thread to share with you my new adventure to make 200$/day from YouTube and CPA

    Introduction about me:
    I'm a computer science student graduating this july so I need to start making money In order to avoid looking for a job (I hate working for other people)
    I'll be using my coding skills to create bots and automate the tasks needed to be done to achieve my goal
    the only obstacle that I have is that I'm totally broke right now:cool:

    what I'll be doing is to upload videos to collect email leads then promote CPA offers via sending them emails

    I'll be applying 3 methods

    - method 01:


    uploading videos that appeal to a broad audience like funny,weired,pranks..etc

    the funnel will be

    YT video --> single optin page --> redirect to cpa offer (zip/email submits/gaming offers) --> autoresponder

    - method 02:


    I call this niche youtube videos where I'll be uploading how to videos in some specific niches then try to convince the watchers to click my link for a free download then let the autoresponder play its role

    here is a niche I'll be going after

    how to save money on gas

    after people signing up I think there is many offers that can do well

    - cash advance
    - work from home
    - job offers
    - education grants

    so I'll email the list all this offers

    method 03

    I call it downloads method

    I'll alter the install file for softwares and upload them to file sharing websites when the user downloads and installs the soft the altered install file will also install an adware to his pc like that I'll create my own ppv network
    ==========
    after uploading the video I'll be doing some promotion to get some views

    here is some ideas that I'm thinking of to get the initial views for the video

    1/email marketing


    scrapping emails and sending the video link (check the email scetion for this forum there is plenty of info)

    2/using social media


    facebook --> facebook is a bit tough now I need to make 500$ fast to buy an iPhone because with a jailbroken iPhone you can create multiple pva accounts with one sim card

    twitter --> using the @ feature on twitter you can send the video link to a lot of people without even following them

    there is also
    myspace and tagged with bots you can spread the video quickly

    3/Craigslist


    I have my own craigslist scraper that I'll be using unfortuantely now I can't pay for decaptcher to extract emails from important sections like dating and resumes

    4/social bookmarking websites

    never done this but websites like digg,reddit an stumbleupon can bring very good traffic to a video with good content

    5/blog commenting

    6/advertising in YouTube itself

    commenting
    adding friends
    messaging people
    video responses

    I haven't tried that yet I would love to know from you guys what are the limits per account like from a fresh account how many messages I can send to random YouTubers after analyzing this I'll try to code a bot for it


    that's a long list of methods to get video views but at the beginning I'll focus on only one video promotion method --> Email Marketing

    software I'll be using

    To download a single video from youtube
    Code:
    Internet Download Manager
    To download a whole channel at once
    Code:
    dvdvideosoft dot com free youtube downloader/CODE]
    [CENTER]  To Watermark a video
    [/CENTER]
      [CODE]Flv editor Pro
    To Mass upload
    Code:
    fireuploader mozilla plugin
    To Mass mail
    Code:
    My own mass mailer
    To Edit the video description
    Code:
    I'll try to code that but I'll start doing it manually first
    Account creators
    Code:
     Email account creator
     youtube account creator
     social media accounts creator
     (all coded by me)
     
    I think that's all what I need right now I'll add more to the list when the need to the tool appear

    Today To do List
    1- find a video (I'll start applying method one to promote zip/email submits)
    2- for lead capture I'll be using mail*chimp they have a great free plan (2000 subscribers) and the service is cool with good interface
    3-build the landing page (I got plenty from the theme download section of this forum)
    4-scrap some emails
    5-blast them the video link

    earning goals for today:


    1.5$

    If there is only one journal out of hundred which helped the writer to make money, reach goals it is worth it.

    sounds like you have a good plan and a lot of methods youre thinking of trying. my best advice would be to focus on one method at a time so you dont get burned out. work on one method, get it to make money, scale it up, then when you feel like you have milked the method for all its worth, move on to the next. best wishes to your success!

    Thumbs up for this advice. Too much at the same time could overwhelm you.

    when you mention someone with @before his twitter id he will get your message in a special tab within his twitter account

    so the idea is to scrap random people from search (using trending keywords)

    and send them the link to the youtube video

    I used to milk like 10$/day using this method by redirecting people to cpa offers now I'll be redoing it to make them watch the video

    the idea is to trick the people to make them click the link

    can you please share what are you doing with social bookmarking?

    i didn't really understand your first method....i read it more than twice and it still sounds weird....you are going to upload cool videos ---> put a cpa offer ----> and then autoresponder??? how can you collect the email of the viewers if you send them directly to the cpa offer ?

    I meant that the video role will be to redirect to a lead capture page but the question is what incentive you put to convince them to register

    every video is different

    for example if you put something about funny cats or dogs you can redirect them (via the link in the desc to a free guide about cat/dog training)

    and ask them to register before downloading the guide

    you can find easily here some plr stuff in a variety of niches just dont forget to put some aff links inside the report to some clickbank products :)

    now you have their email adress you can go blackhat or whiethat

    blackhat means that you spam them with all offers that you think it may convert

    whitehat means you need to build a relationship with those users before selling them anything

    I'm going blackhat :cool:

    If you browse the youtube section especially the two sticky posts you will find that reuploading old videos also work

    or you can grab popular videos in other video sites like dailymotion

    for the promotion I have listed in the first post how i am going to promote

    email,facebook,twitter,myspace,social bookmarking

    here is a nice read about the topic

    Update

    Today I spent the day coding the landing page because i changed my mind from doing normal lead capture using a form to something more powerful
    basically what i'll be doing is to use the facebook connect feature to make the landing page visitor login with his facebook account the moment when he clicks accept
    I'll get his facebook email and I'll post the url to his news feed to make his friends visit my website

    the script is 90% done

    there is a script similar that being sold in the WF that do the same .when i finish mine blackhatters will get it for free

    does anyone know a good reliable free host I have searched for a couple of hours without any luck:confused:
