Making $100+ a Day with Movie Site!?

    I have recently put up 4 movie sites, using slight modifications of the movie press theme and other themes aswell.

    2 of my sites are on Adult Niches, 1 is on Movies, the other is on TV Shows.

    The sites look good, and the cpa lead and adult access now gateways are all custom.

    My goal is to achieve a steady $100 a day, it would be good if I could achieve it $100 a day with everyone of my sites, but at this point I'm focus only on earning $100 a day, I have bills to pay and all and since I'm recently unemployed, I have turned into IM (something I had envisioned for quite some time now)

    I've been working extremely hard this week on setting up my sites, adding content, comments, rating my movies, the whole thing.

    When my sites were done, I immediatelly started producing thousands of videos on camtasia, I made over 5000 movies half adult half tv show / movies.

    Every movie is different, of course the formula is always the same, (Black, Blue or Grey background) at the beginning saying to download the movie on MY SITE and then followed by an image or actual movie clip during the rest of the play time (also with an watermark "to watch this movie go to MY SITE")

    Of the 5000 movies that I produced I have managed to upload until now roughly 1000 to YouTube, I've done all sorts of tags and descriptions, I've done the Part 1/10 - 2/10 ... 10/10 thing.

    I have done EVERYTHING that was humanly possible in such a short time.

    And after all this, exactly 3 days after I started uploading videos to YouTube and promoting my sites, I have made ONLY $7 on Adult Access Now and $0 on CPA Lead!!

    I believe that at this point I ought to ask some kind of guidance or help.

    As I've mentioned before, I have responsalities, bills to pay, kids to feed.

    I'm currently unemployed due to a condition I have, I will receive some money from the goverment to pay for my disability, but it's something that could take another 3 or 4 months.

    At this point I need to pay the bills of the month, any man of family here should know what it is to have to pay the bills at the end of the month.

    I've been longing on these forums for some time now, I passively read some intersting stuff, but only recently after my disablity I start thinking serious about starting some internet business.

    Since I have no money to invest and not much knowledge on many other fields, I started doing the only thing I knew how to do, (and that other forums seem to unanymously claim is among the best constant sources of income on the internet, the TV / Movie Site, I then took action immediately and applied myself to the best of my ability.

    At this point I have done everything that my knowledge, action and expertise allowed me to achieve.

    And it isn't working, I've invested over 16 hours a day during the past week setting up my site while I was producing the videos, creating youtube accounts, etc, etc.

    After God knows how many hours, I have made a ridiculous $7...

    I need some help here, some genuine help or guidance on what I could be doing wrong and fix it.

    Or perhaps be told that Movie sites are obsolete and I should be doing some other niche instead.

    Looking forward for any genuine help here.

    Thanks in advance.

    Im very sorry for your situation but you should expected that before starting those type of website , they need a lot of time and hard work but you can achieve that goal.
    I have tried making a TV shows website at the beginning of this year and this what i have done to achieve 150$/day:
    -First don't install the gateway from the first day so visitors comes back to your website.
    -Get a PPI account at loudmou and put a banner of the FLV player at the sidebar, And add a link under every video , something like "Download This Episode" taking them to your FLV player Affiliate link (you gonna get up to 1.5$/install (from US) )
    -Build a facebook fanpage and install it on the sidebar too , and install a facebook share bottom under every video (you gonna be amazed from the traffic you get from facebook).
    -Submit every episode you post to these websites :
    Code:
    yidio.com
    sidereel.com
    tvduck.com
    tvshack.net
    ovguide.com
    surfthechannel.com
    tv-links.cc
    tvokay.com
    
    If you're using a gateway those website gonna ban your website , so don't unlock it till you feel that you have enough traffic to your website.

    -Download some trailers or anything related to TV shows and watermark them , then spread them using
    Code:
    www.tubemogule.com
    and don't forget to put your link in the video's description.
    You can use this software to watermark the videos :
    Code:
    http://www.mediafire.com/?bzz3mjzvezb
    -Post as many questions you can on those websites and then put your link in the answer:
    Code:
    http://www.answers.yahoo.com/
    http://www.wiki.answers.com/
    http://www.Answerbag.com
    http://www.askville.amazon.com/Index.do
    http://www.yedda.com
    http://www.ask.metafilter.com/
    http://www.allexperts.com/
    Using those methods i got up to 6k UV/day and you can get more if you work hard.
    If you are not getting the amount you need without the gateway you can install it but after you submit all your links to the video website i motioned above so if they ban your domain you still having links on them.
    I hope those tips can help you achieve your goals and i which you the best luck on your IM career.

    Didn't read the whole thread, but just a heads up; **************'s surveys have been bad for the past week that might be affecting it.

    the thing with these sites is it takes some time to get going

    so your timeframe is short to get to what you want.

    also like the other guy said those gateway sites have stunk up the joint lately

    Movie sites are pretty much dead unless your willing to put the massive amount of work.
    Your fighting -

    Warez

    go on every *chan board and start threads 'where can I watch (whatever) online?' then shill away

    find other pir8s blogs and add your links to them
    example: google 'watch lost online' the first response is
    cucirca.com/2007/05/12/watch-lost-online/

    shill away in the comments section, they're still active

    movie niche isn't what it was used to be like a year or two ago. You better of pursuing the tv shows niche which is saturated too but still not so hard to make money

    The main problem with this method is, maybe all your content can be easily found on G within 5 seconds. What you need is rare content, something that will take a long time or even not possible to find it free on the internet. People will still hit the back button and search for it to find it for free but once they are unsuccessful, then they will come back to your site and fill out the surveys to access to your content.

    You are on the right track but survey method is getting old and unless you put your own twist to it, you will have a hard time seeing the benefits of your time and efforts. It was a golden money making method back in 2009. Now, most people got used to it and they know what it is, so a lot of them became immune to it, especially the utube traffic.

    My advice to you: Before taking action for any given method, you should always check the competition for your market and also see how easily accessible the material you are trying to promote. Just do a search on G for "watch movies online" What do you see? From the sites popping up on the serps, i can see that anybody who has a brain can watch it for free, for less than 5 sec maybe?

    So let's analyze this a little bit. There's lots of free content on G, and people can access to it very easily, because the results are on the first page. If it would be buried on the 5th page, you would be getting a lot of responses and conversions. You know what i mean?

    You should always ask these questions to yourself before taking any action for any given method:

    1) How easy it is to access this content for free?
    2) Is there a lot of demand for it? Is it a hot trend?
    3) Is the method over saturated? Do i see a lot of other sites following this method? If every Tom and his mom is doing this, you won't reap the benefits unless you put your own twist to it. For instance, speedy5044's example.
    4) How long will it take for me to get this method up and running? Do i need an hour, a day, or a week? Is it feasible to spend your time on it?
    5) Is the method flexible and can i put my own twist to it? Because if it's not, people will get used to it very quickly, maybe even before you have a chance to promote it fully.

    Maybe you know all of this already but i just wanted to share anyway. If you need urgent cash, i also recommend writing articles. You can get dragon naturally speaking and write your articles really fast with it. I'm not sure if you can make $100 a day with it, but i'm sure you can make enough money to pay some of your urgent bills.

    I run several tv/movie sites, It's not the niche to be getting into if you wanna make real money.

    I don't know the movie site biz, but I'll put my 2 cents in on surveys - I HATE THEM! They're all over the place. people are used to seeing them and it's an instant turn-off.

    What I do is use BHCB and make my own one-offer gateway. (I may actually rotate the offers AFTER the gateway, but all the user sees is a single offer).
    I then tell them exactly what they need to do to see your site. And I stress that it's simple and quick. (Have you ever tried to navigate through one of those surveys?? Holy crap!!!)

    I then use email or zip submits - some as high as $4.00 these days. It doesn't take many to add up to $100.

    I'm not saying surveys aren't good, but just making the change I mentioned above has increased my daily income from $5 or $10 to over $100.

    Hope this helps...

    You can also go with the poll method. It always works with the hot trends, as long as you have enough budget to get some instant traffic with ppc.

    Thanks for all the genuine advice laid forward in here.

    I will implement what was discussed here, particularly speedy's post where he mentions how to get better traffic for my movie sites.

    Another thing that interessed me for more instant money was the articles idea?

    The only way I'm familiar with article writing was through Associated Content, and since I'm not from the United States, I can't signup as a publisher, also, it seems, from what I read that a lot of articles get denied these days.

    What other places can I get paid upfront from my articles?

    Thanks

    Also, what does the poll method consist on?

    I'm unaware of this method?!

    I'd play the movie for 20-30 minutes and then have the gateway pop up... ;)

    SO BHCB with email/zip submit is the way to go?
    Do you need to insert DMR into BHCB?
    Are the submits incentivizable?
    The network/advertiser accepts this?
    Do you send junk traffic to the page to lower conversion ratio?

    Thanks for the great advice, really appreciate it.

    Thanks for the prompt reply! I'll just check over with the AMs about the second page of the offers and blanking the refer etc.

    Here's a question for the the CPA gateway Gurus:

    Say the Content is on someone elses site. Can you lightbox the wall/survey over their site using, say, a redirect domain and an iframe??? (i'm not too technical so that could have been just nonsense I wrote there!)

    ... or just simply have a link on my own site to the content?

    Great thread and replies.

    Excellent tips in this thread. Good luck to OP, I hope you can get the ball rolling on something soon.

    The bottom line is: Follow consumer demand wherever it takes you. Stay on top of trends and what people want and seize the day immediately.

    I was gonna start a movie site myself but it seems like it's over saturated. Unless you put a lot of decent time and effort into it.
