    ***Background***
    My name? I don't think it's needed here.
    My age: almost 20.

    Okay, I'm still a student. My major is Computer Science (well, I don't know that much about computer, yet). As I said, I'm 20, and I'm still dependent on my parents (yes, I feel like I'm a piece of sh*t now!)

    I kind of feel bored going to college, but my parents really want me to get some kind of degree (you know, Asian parents...). But hey, it's time to pay my debt to my parents, isn't it? I'm going to get a degree to make my parents happy. And it's also my back up plan if I failed as an Internet Marketer (I shouldn't say this, because I'm going to be a successful man!!!!).

    So I used to get around $50/day when the time Adwords isn't too harsh about the ads qualification. But I failed after Google updated, and (I'm not going to lie) I gave up. What a freakin stupid move. But I'm getting back on my feet, and go to "money war"!

    Though I'm doing well with college, but I think I'm not going to be rich if I study in college and be bossed around all my life. So the revolution begins here!

    ***Plans***
    CPA - Going to SEO an actual professional site to get traffic (maybe including Youtube videos). The main income comes from Content Locker (Ulock.it). The networks I'm going to use are:

    • Adwork Media
    • Adscend Media
    • AdGate Media
    • CleanFiles
    • others (if something pops up :cool:)
    Clickbank - Kind of simple. Make a video (using fiverr) and upload/boost/SEO the video :)

    Adsense - Make a video that reads an article, and upload/boost/SEO the video to get traffic for Adsense.

    College - Damn, what a waste of time =.=' Straight A! :D

    These are just the current projects, I'm going to expand as I go :)

    ***Niche***
    I used to use the "fake contents" niche, but I'm thinking...what the hell? I'm making much, but I'm not happy as well. So how about do something different this time?

    Niches that I choose will be 100% legit, but it's just that the contents I'm giving might not as good as I described. The people actually get the content!

    I more thing you should know, I'm going to take 1 niche into action, but for all 3 projects (CPA, Clickbank, Adsense). So I won't be finding niches all day long =.='

    ***Goal***
    Actual goal: $1,000/day
    Minor goal: $500/day

    ***Current earnings***
    $0/day (have old projects going, but they aren't perform well, so $0 is the best choice).

    ***Journey***
    I'm going to write the exact information what I've done in the day. No excuses (bullsh*t) will be mentioned. The journey will go on until I reached my minor goal. After that, I'm going to make another jounrey to get to $1,000/day.

    ***Updates***
    The journey will be updated daily even if I did not do anything or even not earning anything. And no excuses :)

    I have gotten some sales with Clickbank, but it's not that much. I guess it's because of the script that I wrote.

    So I'm trying it again :p

    Thanks, but I don't think luck is with me :) So I'll create my own luck :D

    Yup, I won't give up, not this time :)

    Thanks!

    Thank you for following :)

    ***Update 10-02-2013 (Day 1)***
    Okay, I didn't get that much done today, so here is what I did:
    • Set up my new VPS :) [Everything]
    • Created 3 Web 2.0 backlinks pointing to my CPA website. [CPA]
    • Created a campaign (including Tier 2) in GSA for my keyword #1 (CPA) that links to my website. The content is generated by SEO Content Machine. [CPA]
    • Uploaded the video that I've gotten from Fiverr. Put a nice Title/Description/Tags for it :) Hopefully it'd rank. [Clickbank]
      • Boost views - Using U2bviews.
      • Boost likes - Using Vagex (because EnhanceViews has some problems in liking video).
      • Boost favorites - Using EnhanceViews
      • Created 1 custom comment for this video - Using EnhanceViews
      • Created a campaign in GSA to rank for keyword #1. This keyword is the same as CPA website's keyword, same niche as well :)
    • Seems like GSA Search Engine Ranker is having some errors. It doesn't save my verified links, or it completely removes my verified links after I stop/start the project again. It occurs after I updated to v6.71. So I've stopped all of the campaigns, waiting for it to completely fixed :) Or all of my links are going to be lost again :(
    • Found an article to make a nicely voice-over video. [Adsense]
    • Figured out how to use "text-to-speech" and how to get the audio file after generated. [Adsense]
    • Trying to figure out how to make a nice presentation video + voice-over :) (still having trouble) [Adsense]

    Here is the actual update :p

    Adwork Media Clean Files Clickbank
    Clicks Leads EPC Earning Clicks Leads EPC Earning Hops Order Form Impression Sales Earning Total Earnings
    10-02-2013 13 0 $0.00 $0.00 66 2 $0.04 $2.56 8 1 0 $0.00 $2.56
    I think I should organize my stuffs again...These might not look nice...

    Okay, just got back from the freakin college =.='

    I've done something in the last 2 hours, and here they are :)
    • Cut/Edit/blah blah blah the video, and made a presentation voice-over video (using text to speech website to generate the voice since my English isn't good enough to "talk"). [Adsense/CPA]
    • Uploaded the video to my more than 6 months old account. [Adsense]
      • Wrote a nice description/title/tags for this video, and it's ready to rank.
      • Planned the way to boost this video and rank :).
      • Created a new campaign in GSA for this video.
    • Uploaded the video to a brand new account. [CPA]
      • Boosting views using U2bviews
      • Boosting favorites/comments using Enhanceviews
      • Boosting likes using Vagex
      • Created a new campaign in GSA for this video as well :).
    • Keep boosting video. [Clickbank]
    • Upgraded GSA, and started running the campaigns :).

    That's about all of the things I did today. Not much.

    Today I was in my class, saw my classmates explaining the previous test, and got angry of myself. So I wondered "Why the hell am I still a piece of sh*t?" I gotta work harder. I have to climb up the hill of people and become a successful person. Working harder isn't an option here anymore...

    Okay, here is the question that popped up in my head while setting up the Adsense account in Youtube:
    • I can use a custom thumbnail, and my videos are 100% legit and do not have any duplicate nor copyrighted contents. So can I use a sexy girl thumbnail to catch men's interest?
    • If I successfully did as above, will I get banned?
    • In case if I can do all of the above, but I used a "sexy girl" picture which is a copyrighted picture, would I still get banned? :p
    • Is there any alternative ways of doing this without risking my account?
    If there are some experts who are reading this post, please advice me. I will take anything into account.

    Thanks :)

Maybe not? :p If someone is concerned about this journey and wanted to ask some questions, please do. You're more than welcome here :)

    Hey, I'm in a very similar situation to you but I have no real experience with this kind of thing. I am good at tech stuff though. I can answer the question you had about custom thumbnails. They can be added only if the YT acc has reached a certain level and you cant use copy written images.

    You got a pretty decent goals and nice setup. Make sure that you got two or more networks for content lockers to protect your income and compare their ePC rates.

    We all started with "no real experience," so you should keep doing it if you're in here. Reading threads, and gaining experiences. Having an idea of what to do, and what no to do. After you've gotten a great amount of knowledge, test everything, and don't listen to anyone :)

    I understand that I can post custom thumbnails, but I'm not sure if my Adsense account is going to get banned because of using "unrelated" or "copyrighted" pictures of some sexy girls or not....

    That's the plan. Yay! :p

    There are lots of tools. The easiest among all of them to create slides is Windows Movie Maker, here is the link:
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-live/movie-maker#t1=overview

    If you want to look into more professional slides that have transaction/animation, then you should take a look at ProShow.
    http://www.photodex.com/proshow/gold

    I understand that people are having problems with "start up" money, so you don't need to buy the "ProShow." I can share you a crack version of it if you want. but I can't share it here, I would PM you if you want.

    Thank you for your tip :)

    Well, I did pretty much everything in for the CPA project for today:
    • Finish up boosting videos. (CPA)
      • Views
      • Likes
      • Favorites
      • Subscribers
    • Created 10 campaigns for those videos. This took a hell lot of time =.='. I have to use SEO Content Machine to scrape the contents, then I put everything into GSA SER for it to blast on its own for the rest of the month. (CPA)
    • Trying to contact the owner of Ulock.it. Seem like it was down the entire day, I guess I should buy Content Locker Pro or something :( This isn't going to work if Ulock.it keeps crashing.
    • Fixing my VPS, and thinking about some other shits...

    That's it for the day, isn't that much...I guess SEO Content Machine took me lots of time to get familiar with it. But the 10 campaigns are going to run for the rest of the month (until I stop it). So I think it's worth it :p

    So today, I'm planning on something interesting. However, I'm not able to do it. Damn!

    So here is what I'm planning:
    • I'm going to upload the Clickbank video repeatedly for 10 keywords. Optimize them, and rank them on Google. (Clickbank)
    • I'm going to rank all CPA videos that I've uploaded to rank on Google as well as Youtube. (CPA)
    • Then, I'll take a look into Adsense. Create videos about a content, over and over again. Changing the theme in my presentation or stuffs like that. Then try to rank the videos without monetizing it. After it ranked, I'll stop "boosting" it, and let it run normally with Adsense ads on it. This way, I'll get the traffic, and might not get banned because of "spamming." (Adsense)
    • Create another campaign to rank the website. Not depending on videos anymore because of the high-deleting rate of Youtube lately. (CPA)

    So here are my questions for the day, hopefully someone can answer them:

    • Will it be OK if I spammed the hell out of Adsense videos without monetizing during this time, but I will put up Adsense ads after the videos have ranked?
    • Can I use the same content over and over again, but I make different videos (different theme) and the voice-over is the same?
    Note: The videos are not monetizing anything else except Adsense. Not even Clickbank nor CPA.
