    Alright guys its time I started my own journey. I have read so much on here for the last 2 years or so. (I use to have a different account but lost password) I am so grateful for the information I have received from this forum. This forum and you guys here are so supportive and its really appreciative and encouraging for people trying to get into IM.

    My history:
    I am 21. Been doing IM for a couple years now. Had a site back in 2011 in the herbal incense and legal highs niche. Made 300,000 cash and had another 550,000 in merchant accounts. Did the whole office thing with employees and everything. Got really big and the government caught on and raided my place and I lost all my money (every penny) and now I am in big trouble. Anyways this isn't important. Until I find out whats happening with me I plan on doing it again. Lets make it back!!!

    What I will be doing:

    Using youtube to bring in traffic through videos I make plus ranking videos on google search results with fiverr and manual linking when I have time. I will be targeting multiple niches but for now I have one good one. My main keywords have about 6-9000 exact monthly searches. I plan to make a new video every 2-3 days. I will be linking from youtube to my blog where I have a review site on the niche and from there I will be directing to amazon as an affiliate. (I am currently working to find another company who pays more to affiliates for my niche and has longer cookie tracking). I do plan on using my landing page to collect emails for an exchange for an ebook or something. not sure yet.

    I plan on making videos as well in content locking niche but for now youtube+landingpage+affiliate link.

    Tools:
    hitleap
    Vingler
    Enhanceviews
    fiverr (ranking videos google)
    cyberlink photo director (for slideshows)

    I currently have a landing page for my niche with reviews that I link to from youtube. I am blasting my videos with free likes and views right now with exchange networks. My keywords have no more than 3 videos on google search first page, no more than 5 backlinks per video according to ahrefs, no more than 30-35,000 views and all keywords (main and lsi) have at least 200-250 exact results.

    Wish me luck. Any tips along the way are appreciated.

    alright so here's a screen shot of my clicks. My goal right now is to increase clicks big time but at least I know I'm starting to get some people to my blog through my video. To do: keep pumping social signals to my video with vingler and enhanceviews, also going to start manually back linking on pr5-pr9 web 2.0s, doc sharing sites, guest post sites, and social bookmarking sites to get my video ranking in google.

    my main goal is to rank my youtube video at the top of google. Other youtube videos ranking have 2 backlinks at most but any other site ranking first page are huge authority websites like amazon. Let me know your guys thoughts on going for a smaller searched keyword phrase.

    lol looks like no ones following this thread. That's fine I'll just use it as my personal notepad then to document my progress.

    Today I checked my video and I am starting to get natural views to it and comments. One comment was up stating how this is a video but its not really because its a slide show with my voice over. The problem is I could make a video but since I'm promoting the product and don't actually have the product to show in the video I'm kind of stumped as to what to do about that. The video is ranking on the 7th page of yt under my main keyword and I'm building backlinks to it with spun content everyday.

    I have another 2 videos which I am going to be adding to this journey, monetizing with cpa. One has started to pick up and is on first page of google and youtube for its keywords. I am making about $0.50 a day for the last 4 days or so.

    This is what I am doing today:
    - blasting youtube videos with enhanceviews and hitleap
    - making a new video and uploading
    - building more backlinks to my product video to try to pull it to first page.

    any questions feel free to ask.

    I am going to start making my daily update posts like this.

    Update 1

    Today I scraped a video for a new niche and edited it in mass video blaster to make 3 unique videos out of it (cut time and changed background music). Uploaded it and started getting natural views. I am going to blast all videos tomorrow. Also going to set hit leap to view my videos for at least 1 minute because I can't afford retention views right now.

    One of my videos is ranking well and is bringing about 80-100 uniques to my blog every day. I am thinking about adding annotations on my videos with links to my landing pages.

    Still building backlinks as well to my landing page for my amazon product niche.

    Tomorrow I am going to look for another good niche, blast videos, make a landing page for the videos I uploaded today and drink a beer. Cheers!

    Hey, here's my 2 cents:

    I think your sales funnel is a bit too long. This is basically it what the customer has to do in order for you to see any money:

    find you on youtube -> watch your video -> notice a link in the description -> like your video enough to click through the description -> like your website enough to click through to amazon -> order something on amazon that qualifies for a commission

    That's pretty heavy, I'm not sure exactly how to make it more simple but perhaps you should consider putting a link in the youtube description so that a few of the steps are skipped.

    I don't want to completely eliminate the blog but maybe I could add a shortened affiliate amazon link in yt description + add my blog and tell them if they want a freebie (like ebook) or something to go to our blog and sign up to our newsletter. That way I get their email and can sell to them over and over..... or do you think 2 links in the description is overkill?

    Hey OP,

    Why you just don't only try doing PPD at first and then when you grow and have cash, start your amazon blog and advertise with the cash of ppd?

    Just a thought ;)

    Yea I think I'll be just doing cpa/ppd + youtube so I can focus on one thing at a time and not get distracted. Im still playing around trying to find the right niche.

    I also added ****** to shorten my blog links to see if that will bring in some extra cash. Still testing but so far clicks are lower then without it so I may remove it.

    Still working and not giving up. Just got after effects and going to start trying to make a couple quality videos.
