    Lets talk about youtube marketing, as you all know youtube has a huge amount of visitors that you can monetize luckily enough there is more than 1 way to monetize youtube and from those ways there are more niches you can do.By ways i mean, uploading, commenting, commenting and rating, subscribing(subs 4 subs, etc), sending messages, etc.

    So what am going to plan on doing is to write methods that would be categorize within each category or categories, and sometimes it will include using third party software/services/websites etc. So uploading methods, comment rating methods, mass messaging methods etc.Meaning, this is Part 1 of hopefully many series to come.

    Part 1


    Uploading


    [/CENTER]
    Method 1 - Movies sites/TV Shows sites /Trailer Movie sites


    Now as most of you might know, movie sites were pretty big back in the day (like 1-3 years ago). They were easy money making and there were people making hundreds a day some thousands with very few sites. Today is a different time, cpa networks got all these copyrights lawsuits and most of them stopped accepting any affiliates promoting any copyright content. So there are now very few networks where you can actually promote movie sites(will mention a few where you can sign up).

    There are 2 ways of doing this, promoting trailers or promoting movies, tv shows etc.
    If you promote trailer sites, then is a lot less money since its hard to monetize this with cpa, so the only option I see is to promote this type of movie trailer sites with adsense, intext-advertising(will mention a few where you can sign up). While movie sites, tv shows etc are more profitable when monetized by cpa networks(only the ones that accept it).Keep in mind though that this niche is pretty saturated and it doesnt bring a fraction of what it did before, but if you keep working at it it should be a pretty semi-automated 10-40 dollar days. More if you can be part of the 1-5% that can make more than that.

    Step 1:
    First , we need to actually set up the site . You can choose to use any of the premade wordpress scripts out there but it would cost you since they are not free or you can make the site yourself and get the movies from somewhere else. IF you choose to go the latter, then let then check at the bottom of the thread for the more info since I will not go into details of how to setup your site and the process .
    If your going to do movie trailers then check out some automated movie
    trailer scripts that you can buy(check end of thread for more info), or
    you can always do your own and automated with yahoo movie trailers.

    Remember that how you monetize trailers and actual full movies/tv shows sites is different.

    Movie sites/tv shows you offer them the movie but you content lock it with a content locker(mgcash provides one)

    just like sharecash type sites operate. But with movie trailer sites ,
    the chances of people doing a survey just to watch a simple movie
    trailer is very low and you will lose your traffic to potential adsense, intext-advertising and pop ups revenue and what not if you prompt
    them to fill out a survey. So in other words you earn less with a movie
    trailer site, but the risk is lower since you will most likely not get a
    C&D or copyright complains, but hey no risk no gain.


    Step 2:
    If you do this manually you are going to start earning very little, uploading methods are supposed to be semi automatic.So if you can get access to some very basic good bots for youtube you will be one step ahead. Also in the uploading game your speed at what you are uploading matters,and dont forget to get some proxies too but you dont need them if you dont upload much, if you want to upload with your own internet connection you better have a fast connection , else get a dedicated server or vps(get windows if you are using a windows program to upload).

    The objective would be to eventually have your vps or dedicated server uploading atleast 8 hours a day if not 24 hours a day and just spend like 1 to 2 hours a day at most every day(or when you need to), more if you are barely starting out, getting your bot ready to start uploading while you are gone.( so get a stable bot)



    Step 3:
    You might be asking so what videos do I upload. Well if you want to reinvent the wheel you can go ahead and get animoto, or windows movie maker and make your own videos(which I will not go into details about how to create your own videos), but that would defeat the purpose of time and efficiency. The best way would be to upload videos that are already there and just rip them and reupload them on your youtube accounts, thats the best way in my opinion unless you are covering a very uncompetitive movie,tv niche and there are no videos in youtube but thats rare.

    What Videos to get:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6XaVFG8Zvt8
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fuoKbZILrQk

    What videos NOT to get:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLlG0lUSdUM
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZ8g_ZUPQuM

    (you can upload the videos Not to get if your lazy and uploading a lot of videos that is not time efficient to look over the vidoes that you are ripping to upload, most people that do this are doing them by bots that scrape by keywords and upload a lot or is automatic)

    Notice that you don't want to get videos that have the url in the video watermarked, or in a slideshow because your promoting their site. You want to get videos that have something like "Click in the link in the description to watch movie". One tip to notice is that the longer the video is, like 8-13 mins the more clicks you can get thats because users would think is actually part of the episode since is not a 30 secs to 2 min video which most of them will think is fake.Sure you won't convert all of them that watch your video , but it helps to get your video notice.Remember your videos that you upload will look like something like this

    Watch [Movie/Tv Show] Season x Episode x Part x online
    Watch [Movie/Tv Show] Season x Episode x Part x online FULL EPISODE
    Watch [Movie/Tv Show] Season x Episode x Part x online HQ


    Method 2 - Straight linking FREE CPA offers from a video
    This is one of the easiest methods to do for uploading, but its not as expandable and big as other methods of uploading since there are very few cpa offers you can promote using this method.
    So just as the title says it, this method involves uploading videos that are related to basically free email submits.

    Step 1 :
    Since most people that do this method don't really have a website, then the first thing you should do is to get in a good cpa network that has plenty of free email submits to choose from. You want to find ones that you can get credit for 1st page submit, but its okay if you use a 2nd page submit.Making sure you have the right network is what going to matter as you want one that pays high on their email submit offers and has a lot to choose from.

    (For more info about cpa networks to join check bottom of the thread please)
    Step 2 :
    So the videos that you will be uploading will be videos like, free walmart giftcard, free ipods, free ipads pretty much any apple product as those are high in demand. You can also do games, like free bf3 games, free cod mw2, black ops etc.Remember if you want to reinvent the wheel you know what to do, else like my previous method mentioned.Rip and Reupload!!!


    What Videos to get:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BPG05MOG468
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J8hqR5h4jLw

    What videos NOT to get:
    I dont have anything specific, but pretty much try to avoid any videos that show a person talking and just focus more on the ones that are slideshows based, since you can basically download and reupload them by the bulk.


    Step 3 :
    This should be easy, put your cpa offer link in your description and bank.Due to the fact that there are only so many offers you can do this with, this method is hard to expand into the hundreds a day but its easy to do it if you need chunk change and your into mass uploading and not too much into quality.


    Method 3 - Promoting Amazon Videos

    Now lets move down to some real money makers, this method is more time consuming than the others but it actually involves promoting amazon products through videos, which gets you commission from amazon affiliate program. The big difference here is that, most of the times you will need to upload your own videos, videos that you created, since most people that are doing this method are youtube seasoners they know their shit more than most people think. Don't forget this method will not get you instant cash, in fact amazon Payments are made on a Net-90 basis. But don't get discourage as this is one of the methods that pays the best over the long haul and can be scaled pretty big, and most stable in my opinion.This one is for the youtube money-maker season-er or the ones that care about building a passive income empire from youtube videos.


    Step 1 :
    Needless to say, you will need to sign up for amazon affiliate program and get approved before you can start, I will not go into detail about how to do this so use google to find out if you need help with this.

    After that first thing that should cross your mind is whether you want to just promote amazon products by linking from your videos with your affiliate link or if you want to actually get an amazon store, either by some kind of amazon wordpress plugin or by making it your own.
    IF you choose to go the site route, then you will have a much better setup.Plus if you ever get your site making some money, as these sites usually can run on their own without doing much work once you get
    organic traffic or stable traffic ( aka uploading a fuckload of videos to youtube.),then you can actually sell your site on Flippa.com.

    Step 2 :
    Your next step should be creating the videos and using the right tools to create them. Windows Movie maker, animoto and other tools for video editing are the first things that should come to your mind when creating these videos just like the other methods.
    Very few people out there that are creating videos on the fly with automated tools,api etc , thats because this actually requires time to make some slideshows or video reviews about the product . So its not easy to automate that unless you have a great setup with some automation tools that can create automated videos with images and soundtrack if you wish. If you have some cash to spend you can use animoto api and stupeflix api to do all this, but it won't be free and it will require some programming skills.
    (Check bottom of the thread for more info on these api's)

    Also keep in mind, you can upload other people's videos but you will get better results if you create your own since there is more than 1 way to create them and you dont risk the chance of having them get taken down easily since these people guard their videos more than any other youtube money makers I know given the fact that they put a lot of time and effort creating them , not including clickbank affiliates who are in almost the same category as these people.


    Step 3 :
    Now the videos that you will be trying to upload are essentially any product that you can find on amazon, which is almost like a walmart.(FYI amazon is walmart greatest online competitor)
    So if your promoting like "winter coats" then you want to go ahead and grab some affiliate links to some winter coats and make a video about that specific product.
    So if you want to do it simple, something like this on the title will do

    Skechers Raspberry Radiance Girls Jacket Review

    Now I told you that this method is one that many youtube seasoners and pro's do, so just making videos with your product and review isn't what everyone is doing. So you can do all sorts of videos for this, like putting multiple products in one video. For example

    Best Winter Coats for WomenBest Winter Coats for Women: BGSD Women's Thinsulate Filled Hooded Long Coat


    Check this guy out so you can see how he promotes winter coats.- http://www.youtube.com/user/BestWinterCoats
    Check this guy out for vacuum cleaners(warning his videos are very well done lol) - http://www.youtube.com/user/buyingvacuum


    I think I don't need to say that winter coats are only in style for the winter, but I wanted to show you guys this method with a seasonal product example instead of the most common products like electronics, like laptops, cameras , tv's which pay more per commission(check at the bottom of the thread for amazon's commission), but there is more competition with these niches and is hard to rank your video with just a simple slide show or review product. So ultimately if you want to succeed using this method , choose products that are low in competition on youtube and your videos would rank easily for the keywords you are targeting. And remember for seasonal products, always promote them before the season starts(1-2 weeks before) or at the beginning of the season so you can catch the wave earlier, of hungry shoppers looking to spend their money, and not be left out at the end when season is ending.
    So the more obscure you go the less competition there is, so if you want to go and promote diapers then you shouldn't have a problem ranking (although i don't know how many people are looking to buy diapers on youtube lol)


    [/CENTER]
    Well thats it for now, I will either continue a second part to a couple more uploading methods, or start a new part on a different area of youtube .


    Extra Stuff:
    Using unicode characters in the title is another way to
    get your video noticed, people tend to like flashy catchy things. So if
    you have a catchy title you will stand out from the rest. This easy to
    follow tip works like a charm and its easy to implement.

    ☺ ► ★ ❤ ⌦ Title ⌫
    (More info where you can get a library for all these unicodes characters at the bottom of the thread)

    Adding Fake Comments:
    You get much better results if you add fake comments to the videos you upload, things like. "Thanks this video helped me a lot" or "This video is awesome!" etc. Remember to actually try to make your comments relevant to your video or niche, but you can also add some generic comments too.I am against fake views, as it just messes up your actual statistics and doesn't give any real improvement to your videos performance in my opinion in the long run, so I didnt list that as an option as I have never done that in my youtube experience nor will I plan in doing as a matter of fact I believe thats what noobies do when they start youtube .

    Things to keep in mind:
    Questions like how many videos per account, how many accounts per proxy,how many tv shows episode per account are all subject your taste. Personally I would do around 20 videos per account , and around 5-10 accounts per proxy. Unless your accounts are low quality and are likely to get banned in a week without touching them then you should probably do less videos per account and less accounts per proxy. Remember this is a numbers game, a lot of accounts will get banned, videos removed, and most of the traffic comes within the first 1-2 weeks of the videos uploaded(for most methods). So overall if you upload many videos a day you should have a passive income from all the videos you have on youtube.So once again if you are not doing the videos and just reuploading other people's videos then its mostly about quantity instead of quality , so the more you upload the more you make.
    Accounts:
    Youtube cares about accounts, and from experience since I have created thousands of accounts myself by my bots. How you create them and what you use to create them will matter a lot in terms of banning, so what you do with them wont really be the only factor of why your accounts get banned. Don't forget to ask your account provider how he creates them and what emails he uses. If you are creating them yourselves, stay away from most free email providers like yahoo for example. Those are very low quality emails and youtube has started to catch on to youtube accounts with yahoo emails. Best advice I would give you is to actually make accounts with different emails(and proxies of course) and use them to see if you notice any pattern, youtube is always changing their system without most people noticing.This should be obvious but always check your proxy or ip against any blacklists like spamhaus to make sure your ip isnt blacklisted as that would easily cause your uploading, or any activity on youtube to be removed.

    QUESTIONS?

    If you still have more questions feel free to ask them here but remember 90% of what a great IM
    youtube'r will learn is by looking at other peoples niches in youtube
    and examining what they do. This thread will just give you a basic idea
    of what to do and some extra tips, but always remember to spend 90% on
    youtube analyzing your competition and 10% posting on forums when
    starting out. You will learn a lot more doing that.

    I'll be honest, I didn't read it all, but from the formatting and quantity I can see you spent a lot of time on this. Respect for bringing some quality to this board, we don't see much of it here.

    Well am more into the comment rating methods, which i will post in the later series. However, most of these methods i have researched and searched through out youtube in the past 12-18 months, and i have taken a lot of notes on them. Basically, if you are seriously into youtube you will be spending a lot of the time in youtube researching niches, finding out trends, competitors etc. So in a way, if these methods didn't work then people wouldn't been doing them and spending a great deal of time. I posted these methods so i can give a community some methods to expand so we can get a greatder deal of exposure

    Not all of them will get saturated fast, cause i didn't write simple step instructions as if i was talking down to members here, but i posted the general idea where there are various niches to expand too. I have a couple more series on the way , and then from there i will see how the community responds to this to later evolve this into a greater experiment.

    Right now as i speak am working on my own version of youtube tools to tackle these methods in a much larger scale, so i don't have time to work on this as programming in c++ isn't a easy task compared to .net

    Thanks for the share, I am sure it will be helpful.

    I tried a version of mine of one of the methods but my problem was always the ranking of the videos. I even tried to copy the titles/description/tags of the top videos for the keywords I was trying to rank but without any luck and without traffic the videos are useless.

    What do you do to make your videos rank?

    is it good enough to create different accounts with different proxies or should you log in and upload with those same (or different) proxies as well?

    From my own personal experience I don't quite do the ranking method, am a mass uploader, mass commenter, etc i do everything in terms of system where it can be automated just as much as possible.

    So i don't go the rank or no rank way to get traffic, now this post is supposed to be thread that just take a breath about most monetization methods there are out there, it doesn't go into depth for most and the algorithm, for ranking, by pass spam, account creation.

    For uploading, it doesn't matter much as long as the ips are not blacklisted. I would though make sure that when your creating accounts you try different emails, make small batches if you can create your accounts so you can see if you notice any change(personally i know email is a factor that determines your account quality i think i mentioned it somewhere in my post).

    For software i don't really know any other bot out there than mass video blaster, and the blaster series. I code my own tools that are private for this, but i personally know that is easy to hire a coder to make you a custom youtube bot uploader than to make it do most other settings.

    Uploading is easier than most other methods on youtube. However, if you go the private bot i would recommend to give you that option of ripping videos and reuploading them by putting in the link of the video, it will make it go much faster. And also uploading is a pretty much a speeds game, it all depends on how fast you can upload as long as you have good accounts and you are not uploading the tv/movie niche or copyright then you will not need that many accounts and you can re use most of your accounts.




    Well this thread was created out of pure frustation, and ranting due to the fact that this section has been deteriorating in quality . So i thought one day when i was high maybe if i share good information people will match me with some information on my threads. Almost like that stoner mentality , where you match people on bowls, blunts, joints. lmao!

    For accounts creation, i really don't know any out there that are public. In the future I will fix my account creator , private ofc, and i will be giving away some batches of accounts so i can test out the quality and if people like them then I will go ahead open up a bst thread and sell them.

    Same goes for some youtube tools, am working on a different yt bot format so once i play with it and make money out of it i will be thinking hard about if i will release it. However, am not sure if am going to release this yet to the public but i will code it for myself and my team.So if that happens,then i would be adding a new youtube bot to the market(not sure on this yet, i still have to start development and see what bumps i hit on the road)


    So one last thing i forgot to mention, i really dont like promoting bots on youtube since i don't really want to be affiliated with them(not that they are bad). The way i see it is that if post the information and teach people some basic methods, then they will take action and get the basics, like bots, accounts, and so some testing to see what works for them.To be honest, i don't quite like the idea of making this another
    "Easy $xxx methods for noobs", too many out there already. This will be more like a simple, here is the info take it for what you want, if you want to see how much money you can make then go ahead and try it for yourself, afterwards people will have different results based on experience and skills.

    If you want some help i can get you accepted into mgcash as i have used them for some small campaigns from youtube just send me a pm and i will try to help you as much as i can in getting you into mgcash.But just curious why do you say you can't get accepted into mgcash from my experience it was very very easy to get in.

    Very helpful and detailed guide, thanks! Can you recommend some efficient mass youtube downloader that can download for example entire channel. I use Internet Download Manager it's good but I have to do few clicks to download one movie and it's getting anoying with 1000+ channels. I've tried batch youtube downloader but it's just some kind of virus...

    Nice post. My problem is the actual video creation. Can those videos really be made on windows movie maker? The only thing I can make on that is those slide show type of videos right?

    I have a video of cars drifting, with some good views. I've tried make some money with a CPA offer related to cars on it, but without success. Looks like I have to change my strategy to convert views in money.
