    Over the last 3 months I have been working on streaming, in the last 3 weeks or so I would say I am really getting my head around my method and its bringing me success.

    I am here to share exactly what I have done but at the same point I will not be spoon feeding you all. You will have work you need to do and things you need to spend time on. The following skills will needed or you will need to outsource them to people.
    - Basic ability to set up and work wordpress or another CMS
    - Ability to modify or build a simple wordpress theme
    - Ability to set up scripts on your server
    - Source of aged twitter profiles that you are happy burning, new ones will also work but they will be burned much sooner.

    The Idea Summed Up:

    The idea has probably been shared before but it's how I will be marketing the site that will be different. The site itself will mimic websites that stream, it will have the same look and feel of other streaming websites. This should be the number 1 factor when you design and build your theme, it needs to be familiar to the user. These sites normally look like shit and that means it should be simple for you to build the site yourself or outsource it for not much money. You can even be really sneaky and save the CSS they use as well as the web page and base your template from this. I myself have wordpress set up so all I have to do to 'publish' a stream is add a title. This is easy if you know what you are doing.

    We are going to put a fake stream on this page in the form of a .gif that looks like its a legit stream that is loading. That is all.

    Not actually stream should avoid all the legal trouble this activity normally attracts.

    We are then going to use a content locker and use email/phone/post code submit CPA offers.

    Are we keeping up so far? At this point you have probably heard it before, but keep reading.

    The Niches

    The best niches I have found have been:
    - Real Madrid, Barcalona, Man united, Arsenal, Liverpool, Milan... The big football teams
    - NFL
    - Any Barclays Premier League games
    - Tennis finals (Wimbledon and such)
    - I did well with the european football this summer

    You are going to target sports, but please note that if you set the wordpress template up in an efficient way that a 'stream' takes 15 seconds to set up, cast wide net bag many fish. Tonight for example I was targeting Dexter new season premier and also Home Land. I will tell you in the next 24 hour how that worked out.

    Monetisation

    As mentioned above we are going to be working with CPA offers with a content locker.

    The only network I have been working with is Adscend Media. They have a good selection of offers as well as a half decent content locker, you want to set this up so the user can see the stream 'loading' below the offer. It needs to look legit, if this means spending $50 or so on Odesk go do that. This is a make and break point right now.

    To make this work with WordPress I made a custom field that I can add the code provided to me into and it places this in the correct place, you could also just hardcode it into the page template but my way allows for more flexibility but up to this point I have not really needed any...

    Another route may be content locker pro and another CPA network if you are already happy with someone else. This point you should be using your past experience.

    Secondary income streams I will leave to your imagination but there are many ways to go about this :) - Advertisement pop ups have worked well for me when people click the gif image after completing the offer.

    Marketing

    This is the part of the post that should get you excited.

    No expensive SEO tools are needed or for that matter no SEO of any kind is needed, we are going to use twitter.

    A while ago I spotted this twitter account:

    https://twitter.com/DBZNappa

    Every time someone tweeted "Over 9000" it replied back "WHAT!!! OVER 9000!!!" - A draggonball Z reference I believe.

    It has over 340,000 of these tweets and I have no idea how its not been banned yet, twitter must enjoy it.

    Sadly our use of this will get banned. So we will need multiple uses of this on multiple accounts.

    The bot works by searching for "over 9000" in the twitter search engine, and it replies back - simple.

    You should already know what we are going to be doing with this, everytime someone mentions "manchester united stream" for example we are going to reply back with a real looking profile "I'm watching the stream here: *link* enjoy bro" or something similar.

    So how do we build this not...

    We don't have to. Thankfully for the lazy or those with no PHP skills or twitter API experience the bot created released it for free:

    http://dan.cx/blog/2011/06/twitter-autoreply-bot-dbznappa

    You will need a little knowledge in getting this working, if you can't get it working go outsource it again. I got an indian to teach me how to do this for $30.

    I have this bot uploaded several times on several servers. I get a couple hundred tweets sent out on average before the account is banned if its new and 500 or so if its aged.

    To change the search queries or reply text is simple. Its 2 lines of code and you don't have to touch any PHP.

    It's fairly obvious what to do.

    The Steps

    1. Build your theme
    2. Set up wordpress on a domain that looks trusty, go and get a .com they work well and are $10. Name is anything you want, most stream related names are taken.
    3. Set up your twitter bot, if you are unsure outsource this. More the better of these.
    4. Get a calender app (google do one) - mark on it important/popular games or streaming events (champions league is good in the week, NFL on mondays/tues, La Liga/BPL at week ends) I have at least 5 streams a night. You can easily do 50+ in a night at the weekend.
    5. Create your content locker and get it ready to rock
    6. Create your wordpress post for the fake stream, it should have the content locker integrated.
    7. Change the text on your twitter bot
    8. Repeat.

    My Results

    Like I said I have slowly perfected my website and practice down to a T and I am now breaking into the 3 figures a day area :)

    screenshot to come.

    End Note

    With many links and many bots organisation are key to be getting the best from all this, excell spread sheets and calenders are your friends.

    This is something that you will mostly have to perfect, you will not have the perfect website straight away.

    Constantly tweak and change little thing, wordpress is amazing and its easy to do with this page templates or child themes.

    The twitter bot is 80% of it. Get many many bots going, if you need more servers so be it, they are cheap.

    This is where the money is in the method, I find older twitter accounts work better.

    Search the forum for a source of these, I myself just bought 1000 when I started the method and I used those. I have about 150 left but now they are 3 months old they are lasting longer and longer, I bought another 5000 not long ago.

    Log into the account and manually change the username to something real - if you are lacking inspiration take a name from someone else and just add an underscore or numbers.

    Add a picture and steal a bio. It's all good.

    I encourage you all to twist this up, hopefully I am preying I do not regret sharing this but this forum has given me so much

    Please do not be afraid to leave a thanks and rep comment. :)

    Thanks

    AdscendMedia is strict on streams/videos. You must be really lucky not to get spotted yet. Adscend is a very good network and they will catch on.
    I used to do streams when it was still semi-ok with most networks a few years back, but once UFC, HBO, ESPN started suing networks they got stricter.

    I remember doing them in the past with football streaming and highlights etc. It's amazing that this strategy still works wonders. It also goes to show that it's really simple to make money online if we were to get off our asses and take action.

    In the words of Gary Vaynerchuk: "DO SHIT" peace

    yea this is nothing new at all, the basics of content locking pretty much.. Good to reiterate that this still works though

    Does this thing run on a schedule, i.e. cron job, or do you have to run the bot manually? If so, are you accessing it via shell on linux servers, or what? Sorry for questions, but I just have cpanel on my servers with no shell access. How would you make this work under those circumstances?

    never fully tried it because I was afraid of banning, this is against the terms of any CPA even content locking ones since you're not offering anything.

    I tried to implement it using tmhOAuth, but I get a call to undefined method error at setToken, so I guess I am at a loss. Too bad. Looked promising.

    Great thread ! one fact i want to ask about: wouldn't it be more simple if you use Tweet Attack instead of that bot? From what i know the program can be use to autoretweet whenever a keyword is mentioned.

    You know better than that, hopefully. I would have thanked for the great method and effort to post it, but you lost it with the final end, so you would have to be happy with this quote :

    "thanks"
