    Hey everyone,

    This may seem very stupid and simple, but it works pretty well. At the end of the thread there is a tweak to help you make this in 2 minutes with a little investment.

    First off, what's great about this method:
    1. Highly scalable. If you upload just one video per day, that's 30 videos per month = $1500 per month ($50/month average per video which is pretty modest)
    2. Long term. One video I did this way has been earning me consistently since June 2010.
    3. Newbie friendly.
    4. I applied it myself and it WORKED, not just re-posting something I found elsewhere.

    What you'll need:
    1. A YouTube Account
    2. A CPA Account or if you really can get into any (I doubt it), just go with sharecash. (HIGHLY recommended to have a CPA account though)
    3. A decent internet connection to upload videos (not necessary if you're gonna apply the twist at the end of the thread)
    4. Probably less than an hour at any given time you'd like to apply it.

    Steps:
    1. [Most Important Step!] Take the time to think of a highly demanded "download" that is relatively old but still getting huge demand. You can do this by searching songs (games, movies, anything!) on YouTube that are still getting comments till this date and has been uploaded in 2008 for example. (minimizes the chance of youtube taking it down A LOT)

    2. Grab the video and do some edits in Camtasia Studio. We just don't want it to look like an exact duplicate.

    3. [VERY IMPORTANT] Upload a landing page to your server, blogger blog, whatever. Should have a catchy design, simply put a big photo of the album/game whatever and list a bunch of features below it. Refrain from using any paragraphs or so, just list in bullet points. Now insert a download button and lock it down using a gateway.

    4. Upload the video and use a description like "Since 2008 and they continue to be my favorite band! Awesome song. Btw you can download the FULL album in high quality mp3 through this site: [landing page link]"

    5. Ensure you use annotations in the video to direct your visitors attention to the video description, this really helps skyrockets conversions.

    6. Now your final step is some video promotion. To drive tens of thousands of visitors I simply used: youtube likes, comments, social bookmarking and bought yt views to give initial boost. Outsource them all from fiverr. Set the comments on manual approval and only approve positive comments :p (you will get many, believe me)

    7. Rinse and Repeat! May seem complicated but by practice you get to do it pretty fast and it works. Ensure you use annotations, a landing page and stuff that is relatively old but still highly demanded. All of this has its advantages. One more advantage of old stuff is there will be much much less competition trying to get setup cpa gateways on old stuff. Everyone is running after new things:D

    ----------<<< Alternative method - investment required<<<<<<---------

    I don't remember if this was posted before but it works pretty well and requires almost no offer.

    1. Find popular downloads as outlined above. Open a bunch of them in new tabs. Also the older the video the better. Try to ensure that the most recent comment is less than a week ago.

    2. Now open all the uploaders profiles of those videos and see the last time they signed in. If it's more than a week ago, I don't bother:D

    3. PM them proposing to replace their download links with yours (cpa locked) in exchange for a flat weekly/monthly fee.

    4. Many will reject, but many will also agree :D. It's free money for them.

    5. Rinse and REPEAT!

    Tips:
    1. There is also a nasty way to increase chances to uploader agreeing to put your link. You can report his as copyright crap (on hotifle...etc) then offer him yours:p. He may just be too lazy to reupload and see it's cool opportunity to save effort, keep his vid alive and get free money!

    2. Occasionally you'll find uploaders with VERY popular videos but no matter what you do they'll only agree on posting a "mirror". In that case, just signup with fileserve or anything and mirror his file. You'll still earn quite a bit, of course not like CPA but worth if the video is a goldmine. Also if you want to go down the mirror road, you often won't have to pay anything as the uploader considers it some free "help" from you.


    Sorry I know was kind of a long thread. Maybe the very bases of the method were laid out before but I'm sure the twists weren't!:D

    Any questions, fire away and I'll try to be as helpful as possible.:)

    Enjoy, folks!

    When you upload a mirror simply upload it, put a ZIP-file with password on it in there, with a .txt-file saying: get password here. Direct to URL, content locker on URL and done.

    If the content has been already alive on YouTube since long ago, it's unlikely you'll get caught. Besides, their lawyers are usually so caught up in blasting DMCA notices for brand new albums :D.

    Yes, you can make a CPA link redirect to rapidshare. One of the ways is the "file locker" or (dunno its exact name) at AdscendMedia and others. Allows you to redirect to a file download link after a survey is complete. Converts less than content lockers that block the screen on landing pages though. Also careful with any kind of copyrighted content on AdscendMedia.

    If you want to be away from copyrighted stuff altogether, you can still use this method with anything that is "demanded". Exclusive "how tos", "tricks to do this", "fix your playstation free"...etc. You can simply gather that stuff from around the net and put it in a quick ebook and voila :D

    So do you actually have the items ready to download? Had any problems with that? also what sort of cpa offers do you use? just something vaguely related or whatever pays most?
    I've got an interesting twist i might try out on this :)

    Yeah missed that, thanks.

    Risky though as original uploader may test it before he posts it on his video. If he doesn't like it, you've lost a big opportunity. But who cares, there are hundreds of thousands of potential videos to try this on. :D

    Ocassionaly you MAY have problems but I just move on lol...When you scale this to hell, especially on multiple YouTube accounts, losing a couple of videos a month or so would be nothing. But for me personally, I have had very little trouble from this.

    I simply use the content locker and it rotates for itself. :)

    I only bother with CPA offer selection when I'm running none incents :)

    How you prevent your CPA company from seeing the illegal content? Or do they not check?

    Well it's unlikely that anyone will use such a method to make $60 per month. You're definitely not gonna post 1 video per month lol. The more the better.

    With regards to preventing them from seeing copyrighted stuff, blank referrers or go after another type of highly demanded material that isn't copyrighted: think outside the box. :D

    Yeah.. you can blank the referer but they will always know where you have the gateway code on or where the gateway redirects to.

    Yeah you're pretty right about that, my mistake.

    The only way you'd probably be able to get away with it is that if you use a custom coded gateway / third party gateway, not theirs. Something like blackhatcodebreaker.

    Thanks for the method.


    Just a question, how do you manage proxies and if you do are they private and how do you manage Youtube accounts? How do you protect your accounts? This is my main concern about having multiple Youtube accounts.


    Regarding CPA's for this:

    - Adcend Media (incentive - gateway)
    - CPA L.e.a.d (incentive - gateway)
    - CPA Way (incentive - gateway)
    - Blam Ads (incentive - gateway)
    - Also Flux Ads is adding some Incentive offers soon
    - Sure must be more


    Anyway, with other WH networks I don't see the problem asking your AM about the way you would like to promote the offer, sometimes you'll find some amazing answers and in the end all depends on lead quality and prequalifying traffic... don't be afraid to chat with them, the worst case scenario is a "no"

    Firstly, I second your advice about talking to AMs. I don't stop talking to them..lol. I occasionally call them too.

    With regards to your question, it's a bit tiring to maintain multiple YouTube accounts actually but believe it or not, YouTube causes me little to almost no trouble at all. I create 1-3 accounts on 1 IP with no problems. I don't upload more than 10 videos per account. Just keep a low profile and you'll be fine. Private is proxies is best especially because YouTube's a video site.

    If you think it over you really won't be needing that many accounts. If you go my way, it's 3 accounts per 30 videos. Even if you want to keep each on a separate IP, your expense will be ($2.5 X 3) = $7.5 so not bad for a method that'll earn you an average $50/mo/video. Use an excel sheet to keep track of your account username and proxy.

    So in summary:
    - Use private proxies.
    - Do not overuse one account.
    - Clear your cookies, history..etc after using each account or better yet use CCleaner.
    - Keep a low profile, do not upload 10 videos on the same account on the same day. Do not get 400 likes on one video while your total views is 450... etc.. Just common sense. :)
