    Hello fellow Internet Marketers! Hope your day is going well!

    So, I've done a couple of journeys, all of which have ended abruptly when i've realised that I need to stop what I'm doing and just research and learn. BUT, no i'm back, and with a vengeance! I've learnt alot over the past few months, and I'm here to share my knowledge, and all the things I've picked up along the way from my mistakes.

    What I'm going to do, is start from scratch essentially. I'm not going to use any of the good niches i've been using over the past few months, and I'm going to show EVERYTHING! No hiding, and no beating around the bush. I'm going to go straight to the point with this journey. I'm also willing to help people one-on-one, so feel free to message me and I'll send you my Skype or something :)

    Quick outline of my plans:
    • Use my generic site for landing pages from YouTube videos
    • Use a mixture of BlackHat and WhiteHat (and explain why each has it's benefits!)
    • Boost my YouTube videos
    • Show you which are the best CPA Networks from my experience.
    • AND MORE!!!

    Day 1:

    Right, so it's day one, and it's time to start this journey, and I'm pumped! What I'm going to do is look for a niche to start of with. I'll now describe how I'm going to find a niche for myself:

    Finding The Niche:
    So, I'm going to head over to YouTube and search the term "Hack". Then I'm going to filter it to "This Week" and then "Most Viewed". This will generally show the videos that other Internet Marketers have up. For example, if you see like 10 "Clash of Clan Hack" videos, it's a pretty safe bet that they're all Internet Marketers. However, if you see a lot of these videos, it's likely going to be a bit difficult to rank for that specific niche, as it'll be oversaturated. You'll want to look for something that appears, but isn't appearing too often. I know it can be a bit difficult to differentiate between the two, but it's all trial and error.
    I've decided to go with a "Call of Duty Ghosts Prestige Hack" niche to start off with.

    Making The Video:
    This is a topic of a bit of debate. Some people will tell you that a lot of detail and high quality videos are best, and to an extent, i'd agree with them. However, for things like this, I'd say the majority of people going to you video, are just gonna click straight on your download link and ignore the video itself. What I do, is add a few descriptive title pages at the start, and then a few slides relating to your topic. So for me, I added some pictures I found of a "Prestige Hack" on google images. I also make a really good looking and eyedrawing thumbnail for the video.

    Thumbnail:

    I'll keep this simple. All I did was got a really high detailed and HD image from google of my niche. In this case "Call of Duty Ghosts". Then I loaded it into my prefered image editing software (For me it's ArtText 2 for Mac). I then added big bold writing across the image saying "HACKED". You don't have to do it this way, but I think it looks good anyway, and draws people's eyes to my video.


    So, I've got my video uploaded, so now I've headed over to Fiverr, and bought a package which gets me 20,000 High Retention views. For those of you who are newbies...High Retention views are essentially views which have viewed the video for a long time (Longer than 30 seconds). Then I used EnhanceViews to get my likes and favs up.

    CPA Part:
    I'm going with AdWorkMedia on this one. I've used a tonne of different networks, from AWM, to *******, to CleanFiles. I've pretty much used about 10-15 different networks. AWM has been the best for me. Their support team is BY FAR the best! If you want help getting accepted, and working with me via AWM, just message me :)

    So, I uploaded my "Prestige Hack" to a product locker, and made it look all nice and fancy and PROFESSIONAL and BELIEVABLE!

    The Landing Page:
    I made a quick page on my site about the "Ghost Prestige Hack". For SEO purposes I kept the word-count above 300, and tried to get a decent amount of keywords in. I then added a 'download button' to the page, which linked to my PRODUCT LOCKER with AWM.

    THEN...I put the link to my LANDING PAGE in the description of the video.

    People are more likely to believe you're legit and not just after their money if you have a legit website landing page between the video and the product locker.

    Conclusion for day 1:

    The end of day 1! I think I've done a decent amount, and I hope I've explained it all to you guys well. If there's anything you're confused about, then please feel free to comment and ask me. I'll try and answer every question posted! I'm in my exam period at University currently, so I'll get to you at some point, if it's not straight away.

    Once again...If anyone needs help, then please feel free to ask.

    I wish you guys luck in your endeavours!

    If I'd made millions, I don't think I'd be on a forum right now. I'd be enjoying the sun on a tropical island ;)

    I've made a decent amount from them though. The point of this journey, is to show people the process of finding their own niches, and building their own little business.

    Not much to update you on for DAY 2 to be honest. I just pushed more views and likes to my videos.

    Got my first conversion today, and i'm currently on 15 clicks for the day, but still got a bit to go till the end.

    I've got to revise for an exam all of tomorrow, so I wouldn't expect too much detail. Probably make another niche and upload it at best.
