    I'm not new to Internet Marketing and have made a few hundred bucks here are there, but didn't make a stable income stream, that's why I decided to go back on basics. Basicly this will be my journey towards making a stable/multiple income streams from various methods, that I will be displaying here. By basics I mean, the very beginning. I will start with methods that don't require CPA accounts nor investments.

    I was motivated by KraftyKyle and his thread: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...back-start-journey-50-day-all-over-again.html

    My start will be similiar to his, however I'm planning to stick with one method atleast a week or more, before jumping on another. For one week this first method will get all my attention and after that I will focus on other methods, but still be working on the first one. That's my plan and I'll stick with it.

    With that said, I will get to it.

    Method: Pay Per Download

    This is the best way to start, as it doesn't require any investments, nor CPA accounts. I'm planning to upload music files on filesonic and push traffic using Youtube and Big Board Forums as these are the easiest ones. The method is simple itself. Use pay per download network, such as filesonic. Upload your file and spread it using youtube and forums.

    Day 1.

    Traffic using Youtube (Method taken from KraftyKyle)

    Basicly I will be making videos using Pinacle Studio, however you can any video editing program you like. Windows movie maker will do as well. Before you start making any video you need a picture and audio file of a song you want to upload.

    Here's a small list of music sites:

    Code:
    http://www.newjams.net/
    http://www.hotnewhiphop.com/
    http://www.hitlist.com/newmusic/
    Once you've found some files you want to upload, it's time to check google images for artist photos, pick your favorite one and save it. Done? Good, now you're set to make a video file. Upload both (picture and audio file) to video editing program and save the file. If you don't know how to make a video file, check out youtube for tutorials. I'll do about 50 videos each day, different artists and songs. 5 video per account.

    Don't give up, otherwise you won't succeed!

    My plan is to use FS at the beginning. I know that Fileserve and FileJungle work good as well, but I prefer FS. Later on I plan to direct them to my site, but that will be displayed later on.

    Thanks and best of luck to you as well.

    Day 1 Results

    So yesterday I managed to make 6 youtube accounts and uploaded 10 videos to 1 account. Took me about an hour, to make it all done. The longest process was making videos. As of right now I didn't place any lyrics in videos nor in description, but will do test run some time soon, whether or nor it gets more views.

    Here's the whole process in details:

    1) Create Gmail account
    2) Login into Youtube using Gmail account
    3) Create Youtube channel name, that's related to music niche (one of my channels: recenthotmusic)
    4) Go to hotnewhiphop.com or any other music site and pick a few songs
    5) Download those songs and images of the artists (find images on google)
    6) Open your favorite movie making program and create video files (placing both image and audio file)
    7) Create filesonic account and upload audio files
    8) Copy links into ****** (any shortening service will do)
    9) Upload video files to Youtube
    10) Fill out title, description and add some tags
    11) Go to each youtube link and refresh your browser around 20 times, this will give you instant 20 views
    12) If you have vagex account add your links there to boost up your views

    I've subscribed to this thread to follow your progress. I've a question: for the gmail/youtube account creation have you used any proxy? It's safe to create multiple accounts from the same IP in a short period?
    Thanks!

    Day 2 Results

    I managed to upload 10 more videos, using different account. Previously I used ****** shortening service, this time I used goo.gl to see if there are any changes. If people are afraid of ****** or not. Weekends are coming up so I will definitelly step up and upload more then 10 vids per day, we will see how it goes.

    Hints:

    It's prefered to use tags in description as well. Just copy your tags into description and that's all, should boost up your rankings a bit. In tags, put everything related to that artist or song. Such tags as mp3, free download work good as well.

    Day 4 Results

    Today was a very slow day for me. Haven't had much sleep that's why poor results on uploading part. Managed to upload 6 new songs to youtube and uploaded one CPA offer video. I used animoto to create 30 seconds long video promoting Subway restaurant gift card. Not sure if it will even convert, highly doubt about that. I placed gift card video in No Hands SEO to gain some backlinks and placed video in vagex to get some views and likes/favorites.

    Thanks to everyone who reads this thread and comes back to see my progression.

    Another day uploading songs to youtube and placing my FS link in description. As you might have noticed I have been getting a decent amount of traffic and a few cents a day from those videos. However I need to step it up to achieve my goal.

    Here's my plan for upcoming days and this weekend.

    Firstly, I will build a wordpress site for music niche. I will now start directing people to my website rather then to filesonic. I think it will be more profitable. Since I'm a member of a couple CPA networks I shouldn't have problems monitizing this website. I will still continue uploading video to youtube, but in description I will place a shorten url to my website/page of the song.

    I'm still brainstorming on how to monitize this whole process. My first idea was to put content locker on the site, however it will scare off many people pretty quickly. Then I was thinking to put locker on zip folder. MGCash has this tool, so people will download the file, but in order for them to open it, they have to fill out an offer. This way I think people will be more dedicated to complete it, since they already almost have it.

    I registered a free domain name, using dot(.)tk service, I think it will do the job for now. Also I have a hosting, so I am almost ready. Need to find a decent wordpress template for this. If you have any suggestion for wordpress template feel free to suggest.

    Now a little bit about what I'm going to do this weekend. This weekend I'm planning to purchase VPS and use torrent uploading method. I have a really good software (torrentator) under my belt to spread the files around multiple torrent sites. So this fill be may main mindset for the end of this weekend.

    Later on will update you will day 6 results.
