    Heyhey people.

    I just made my first cents. $0.24 cents to be precise haha.

    Started two days ago by using a youtube method found on this forum. In combination I use sharecash so people need to fill in a survey to download the file.

    Proof:

    So far it has not been a real profit or something. But I just started and will keep trying for a while! I am going to try to get at least 20$ a day with this method.

    Details: The payment is not going to be consistent in my opinion. The downloads are from 'fake' files so the user fills in a survey then gets presented a fake file. This way it is not a consistent income in my opinion. Next to this, people do not like surveys AT ALL. I saw this when I saw I got 100 clicks but no downloads.

    P.S: If you got any awesome tips, feel free to share them since I am eager to increase the earnings, but also my motivation to keep doing this!

    Thanks for reading!


    UPDATE 1:

    While writing this I made $11 ! This is so exciting and I will continue !

    Odd:

    One download gave me $10... How is this possible?


    UPDATE 2:

    Was waiting for my income to rise. Nothing happening until now. When I wanted to upload a file it said "Error: Affiliate suspended" or something similar.
    Got no clue why this is... Sent an email but I would like to resolve it ASAP.

    Good luck, your doing something very similar to what i'm doing. I'm with sharecash, and using similar niche too. It's been 15 days since i started, now I'm making $20 a day, on lucky days $30+. Just some useful pointers and what to expect.

    - If your doing youtube + PPD + fake files, expect your video to get flagged down ( my video with 90% of my profit got flagged TWICE) so if you have found a profitable niche, make multiple videos of it, this way you wont lose all your income with one video.

    - Picking the right Niche is VERY important, im making all my money from just 1 niche. i found it through testing different niches. I Tested 5-6 niches before i found mine.

    - Treat IM like a hobby, this way if all your accounts get banned or something bad, you wont lose as much motivation or want to give up. Dont make it like " OMFG ALL MY YOUTUBE ACCOUNT BANNED NOW I HAS NO MONEY, NOW I CANT AFFORD FOOD OR RENT" Focus on school or work.

    - youtube +ppd is a start to greater IM techniques, i am moving on to cpa slowly once i get paid from sharecash.

    thats all i can think of the top of my head. Hope it helped.

    100 clicks and 0 downloads is very bad, I usually get around 10 downloads every 100 clicks. Make sure the niche is appropriate meaning make sure the visitor feels like it is worth it to complete a survey.

    Theyr'll be always new visitors going to your landing page everyday, just make sure you keep your site/video ranked on top to get the maximum traffic as possible for that keyword.

    If it was a content locked download, then the person has to complete a CPA survey in order to see your locked content (in order to download your file).

    Pretty simply, these offers have different payout rates (usually depending on country of the consumer, eg, USA will generally have higher average payout than India), the person who downloaded it evidently completed an offer with a $10 payout, so you get $10!

    Congratulations.

    Haha thanks. I didn't even really advertised or so.

    Ah I see, so the 24 cents probably came from India and the $10 from USA or so. Thanks!

    Exactly.
    This isn't always the case, there will be some USA offers which only pay out at $0.30 or whatever, but when you get a high payout offer, odds are it's from somewhere like United States, Canada, France, Finland, Spain, Germany, United Kingdom, etc, etc.

    When I tested the link it only gave me links where I had to fill in my phone number which then leads to me being stuck with some license in which I pay 10$ a week or so. This means that other people see these links also. Is there any way to let people just fill in a form instead of giving information which they will get stuck with a license with?

    These are mobile offers, which will be higher payout.
    Depending on your network it may be possible to remove so it's only offers instead of mobile offers, but look at it this way:

    If you've got an offer where they just put in a bit of information and you get paid $1, even if you get 100% people who come to the page filling it out, it's better to get 11% people who come to the page completing a mobile offer with a $10 payout.

    But they don't support fake files right?

    If I use legit files and would consider going CPA. What is the difference then between CPA and PPD? Judging from what I read it is similar to eachother. Could you tell me why I would go CPA and not sharecash anymore? Thanks!

    Home Page:
    With ppd (Pay Per Download) you get a percentage on each download people download from your download site (Sharecash) after they completed a task (survey, mobile offer,...) The problem here is you depend on an outside company that takes percentages of your profits.
    Cpa (Cost Per Action) has alot of options to try. You don't depend on another site, cause the file you offer can be stored in alot of places like rapidshare, you own site or anything else. Cpa has a big benefit when it comes to options, cause you can try content lock, you can lock the link to ur file etc... When users try to download it, they have to complete a survey, offer or anything else and then they could download file directly from ur site or somewhere else.
    You have alot of options, like adworkmedia, adcend media etc..

    Hopes this helps!

    Yeah thanks! But basically the improvement I would get is merely visual to the one that is going to download the file? And ofcourse the fact that I can content lock(Rapidshare for example)?

    Thank you.
