    Hey all,

    I'm new to this game, and about to make my first play.

    I spend all of my time on a damn computer, so I figured why not put that time to use while I /afk in the many MMOs and games I play?

    Just a few assets I have that I wanna put to use - a fb act, a yt act and some graphic design/video editing skills. Slapping together a logo or making a banner is easy peasy for me.

    My idea is this. I got a YT act I never use. Really old act, so it's perfect for setting up for use, as it shouldn't trigger Google when I start bring in ad rev and I start uploading bunches of vids. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    I also have a FB act that, yes, use regularly to stay in touch with ppl, but willing to utilize for hosting a page to promote my vids.

    With what IP knowledge I have, my plan is to seek out public domain and creative common vids. Mostly security cam or police/news footage for now. I'll eventually try out just straight up creative common stuff like cat vids and whatever, but I'll have to make a diff channel for that.

    Anyways, the idea is just to grab vids, reupload them, add a catchy title plus a bunch of relevant tags, turn on $, and share it via my FB page.

    Seems like a good idea and all, but generating page likes... that's something I'm no expert of. So my first question is what's the cheapest/most straight forward way of doing this? I kinda want to avoid using my actual profile (ME, myself) to promote this. I want to kinda keep my page followers separate from my actual friends so I don't come off as a spammer or w/e. Is using PPLikes services a good way to go?

    Any other tips would be helpful. Not looking to go big with this. Just something to generate some leisure ad rev for now.

    You can easily separate your life and your business, when you create a FB page nothing will link it to your real profile.

    Do not try to monetize content that you do not own! This will get you banned, so be sure that everything you use is public domain or creative common (check their website to know more about the different licenses -> http://creativecommons.org/licenses/)

    Honestly I think you'll probably make more views recording yourself playing games than just uploading a bunch of videos unless you have some good knowledge about video ranking.

    Man, I hate to be a Debbie Downer.
    Lots of options read the latest and built a mouse trap that suits you.
    We use on the fly paid fake but it's mostly vanity that says we are alive.
    0 ROI = 0 cares around here... Good luck some still jam on it.
