    Well, this should be interesting.

    Let me first tell you about myself, since this is my first post. I am a 20 year old college student who is now studying computer science. School is my #1 priority right now but ever since I started reading about IM (a month or so ago) I really wanted to try to earn some extra cash. I found BHW not too long ago and all these clickbank threads have inspired me. Today was my first day without schoolwork so I said why not start now? I know with hardwork and consistency I will be successful in this journey just like so many others here on bhw. Even though I may make some noob mistakes on the way, lol.

    What I will be doing:
    Uploading many videos to my YouTube channel in order to promote a clickbank product. I will not be boosting these videos in anyway, just using long tail keywords.

    What I will be using:
    -Sony Vegas Pro 12.0 to make videos
    -YouTube, Clickbank, BitLy, Google KW Tool

    Goals:
    -Start my first journey
    -Get some hops
    -Get a sale
    -$100 in a week
    -$500 in a week

    Wish me luck people! Any input would be appreciated!

    Ok.. so today I started my journey, completing my first goal! One down, four to go!

    Here is what I did today:
    - Opened clickbank, youtube, bitly, and bhw accounts! lol
    - Found a clickbank product for my journey
    - Made YouTube channel for product, designed channel to make it look nice and legit.
    - Did some keyword research and made a video which targeting longtail kw with 1.8k monthly searches (Not really sure what I am doing here, lol)
    - Uploaded one video

    Goal Complete: Start my first journey

    So my plan is to continue to upload 1-2 videos a day to this channel and hope they catch on. I hope I don't need any proxies or anything for this journey as I don't know how to use them. I don't think YouTube will have any reason to ban me but I am not sure.. I am only stealing images from google but that is it so I should be good? Does anyone know if there is a max to how many videos I can upload in one day? This is my first noob question lol.

    And I do not think you will be needing proxies if you posting your original legit videos.

    Will be following your journey. I looked into doing this a little as an experiment. I may give it a go as well and see if I can pull in an extra 2k a month or so in the near future.

    First off, it is CRUCIAL to learn about Keyword Reasearch. How will know what keyword to target that is both longtail and buyer intentional? You need to work on that FIRST before you get started on anything.

    Second, I understand you wanna do quantity over quality, but it's best to have things set up so they last long, and do pull in some decent results. Like the banning you talked about, YES! YouTube could ban you/delete your videos if they have copyrighted material (the pics you pulled from google, bg music, logos, etc).
    Also, you need a decent script. Something that tells a story, in words, with some kind of inspiring free-to-use music to help keep people engaged. Don't know if you knew this, but when trying to make a video convert THE SCRIPT is the most IMPORTANT part. I'd rather have something inspiring, and motivational to watch, rather than some shit that looks like it's obviously trying to sell me something. I'd focus on writing good decent, and short/long scripts that you can either type and display as text with good bg music, or have someone act out on Fiverr.

    Keep that in mind when you're making your videos.

    I'd recommend to stay away from bitly if you promote clickbank products as bitly often mark cb affiliate links as spam.

    BTW, Good luck with your journey!

    Thank you bhw for the encouragement!

    Acidol, I considered all those things when making my video. It's a slideshow but I used good pictures, and nice music and it is like a testimonial. As far as the keyword i targeted it is buyer intent and longtail, I put it as the title and description for video. Another thing I'm going to do is create thumbnails for my videos to get more clicks.

    auw21, I'm not sure what you mean? i tested my bitly link on video and it worked fine

    Sometimes the best method is to jump in and learn as you go, especially in the IM business.

    Hello, BHW.

    Ok so today has been a pretty busy day. I woke up extra early and worked on a video which I will be uploading tonight. I also made two thumbnails in PS for my two videos. After that I had school obligations and now I am back home. Right now I am going to upload this video and study for and take a math quiz online.. lol. If I have time after that I will work on more videos as I will be pretty busy all week with classes and schoolwork.

    Oh also I just checked clickbank and I got my first hop :) . and somehow got 2 order form impressions? Found that weird.

    Don't use bit.ly anyway. They WILL mark your link as spam soon. Best bet would be to buy your own domain, get free hosting, and make some directories with a php redirector in them named "index.php" so you can shorten your affiliate link to something like:
    example.com/blahblah

    Ok Acidol, I'll get a redirector domain sometime this week.

    Oh, and it's annoying how I can't quote anyone without getting a spamm message.. :confused:

    Yesterday's Stats
    Hops:
    1
    Sales:
    0

    Yup, like I said yesterday I got my first hop. Hopefully as the video's start to build so will the hops. Last night I finished one more video which I will be uploading tonight. I am seeing there isn't much work for me right now just uploading one video a day so maybe I will have to start another YT channel for another product. This weekend I will probably purchase a domain for my links (suggested by acidol). Anyway I just got done class and now I am about to go to the gym, if anyone has anymore suggestions they would be appreciated. peace

    Get your post count up higher, and that should go away. Had the same thing happen to me when I first joined the forum.
