    Hello, I have been a long time follower of BHW but never made an account. Today I came across a journey that really got the wheels turning in my head. So far I have been using pinterest and adsense making about $2 a day but I want more. I want to quit my job and study more often, get better grades.

    So I am going to use CPAgrip and Youtube to make some cash.
    I have my niche and later tonight I will be making a website.

    Method:
    Use CPA and Adsense to monetize my website
    Upload a video (try to do one a day) about a product in my niche.
    Make and article to go with said video (if applicable)
    Use U2Bviews and enhanceviews to get the video likes and views

    Goals:
    not give up
    update this thread daily (that is my way of not giving up)
    not get my youtube account banned

    Day 1:
    Clicks: 0
    Leads: 0
    Expenses: $10.68
    Earnings $0.00
    Net: $-10.68

    I really hope some of you will follow this journey and give tips along the way. This is my first CPA endeavor and I'm excited!

    Thank you guys.

    First update!

    Day 2, So in preparation for my new website I accidentally deleted my old website database and I am currently talking with my host to restore it from their backups (their most recent is from Sep 7). Dealing with that has put a damper on my creative mood. Therefore no changes as of yet!

    Clicks: 0
    Leads: 0
    Expenses: $10.68
    Earnings: $0.00
    Net: $ -10.68

    Edit: my first website is fully restored and I am setting up my new website.
    Installed wordpress, many plugins for seo, sharing etc.
    No posts or videos yet but soon to come.
    Will also be making a tumblr, facebook fan page and maybe a twitter.

    I wouldn't trust affpaying as they have been seen deleting negative comments for $$$$.

    But I can say CPAGrip is legit as I am also an affiliate there ;)

    Quick update and question. CPA is not seeming to work, but I am getting a lot of website hits. Is the CPA content lock blocking my adsense ads to not be seen, would be be beneficial to just use adsense?

    Day 4
    Uploaded a youtube video, giving it 250 likes and views
    Added cpagrip content lock (with ability to close the offers) to my other site currently earning $2 a day, going to see if I can earn some with cpa and adsense on both websites.

    I have not forgotten or given up on this, I have just been really busy with school! I have however made 4 videos, I have 4 youtube account and vimeo account and a daily motion account! I will be uploading all 4 videos to all 6 accounts. 4*6 = 24 uploads and lots of exposure (hopefully).

    This is to be my big entry, starting in CPA with youtube!

    I really hope this big entry will give me the boost I want to keep going.

    Quick update:

    I am really only hitting this cpa youtube thing half heartedly since I am really busy with school. But the last two days in a row I have gotten a lead a day netting $1.42.

    I also have my other website making a few bucks a day which I am updating more frequently.
    Between the two sites I am in the money!
