    Hey guys, a quick intro.

    My name is EndingLegacy. I'm 15. Last year around this time I started PPD + Youtube, earned up to 3k/month over a couple months, totally lost my motivation then ended up screwing myself after earning $11,000 USD. After roughly June of last year I had completely stopped doing PPD, then eventually began my descent into madness. I eventually spent all of my money and now I'm broke again. People I know still think I'm earning shit tons of money when I actually don't.

    So yeah, this year I'm going to get back into the groove of things, beginning with around $7 in my PayPal.
    Originally I planned to start out with more capital for investing but I got scammed trying to sell a $400 item on steam and so I guess I'll start with $7. This actually happened today, so I guess that's what motivated me to start this journey.

    tl;dr Last year earned tons of money, stopped, then was motivated after getting scammed.



    My Goal for 1/1/2015: 10k/month, if I hit that, 20k/month, if I hit that, buy/go for some financial planning classes/books.

    Strategy: PPD/CPA/PPI/Clickbank

    Resources: $7 USD, an old premium word press theme, a couple old expiring domains, my brain.

    Game plan:

    I'm going to try to scrape up as much money as I can using just YouTube Traffic + YouTube Videos:
    I do have some points on view adding sites, though they don't rank as well as paid HR views from the BST section on this site.
    Once I consider my options I may consider investing in some views after I find some non-saturated niches that are not at all competitive so I can use this money wisely. Last time I checked, the you tube front pages of most saturated niches are filled with new videos meaning that they get flagged super often.

    Videos will go to a word press page with the niche. I currently only have 2 domains fit for this and I'm pretty sure they expire soon but I'll try to make the best out of it.

    If I can get enough money to renew the domains I'll see if I can rank them on Google as well.

    I may move onto Click bank, but thats after I earn enough money to pay for multiple domains related to Click bank niches + cheap seo campaigns.



    Constructive Criticism, Help, Advice, etc. all accepted.

    I know I was an idiot not continuing after hitting 3k/month but honestly, at that point it felt like money was air and that I didn't need it. Jokes on me.

    I'll update this thread as often as I can, mostly to keep myself motivated, and to remember what I did wrong.

    Great that you turned the failure into a lesson. Keep your self motivated and you will definitely reach your goal. I am also getting started with something similar. Good luck!

    $11k at 15? I wish I was making that kind of cash at that age. You're young and there's no doubt you'll regain success if you've already done so already. Good luck on reestablishing your passive income source!

    aha, i have an exactly the same story as you - im 16, but when i was 15 i had a blog earning around $800 a day - ended up selling it for 50k + assets, ran through that 50k like it was nothing.

    Now i'm back to SQ1, and starting to grind again - hope to see you shine again.

    It's easy to get ahead of yourself when you're earning high at a tender age (I did the same). Knowing where you went wrong and rebuilding will only get you to stronger grounds. Good luck.

    Thanks guys!

    I don't really know how I ran through that money in all honesty.

    Seems like yesterday when I had 3k lying around in my PP account, while earning $100/day doing nothing.

    I think I spent most of it on Virtual items, in retrospect I probably should've seen this coming and not have done that, seeing as it was a really stupid move.

    Good news is that I managed to find something leftover from those days, sold it for $110 this morning so I'll be using this + my $7 as capital.

    Unfortunately I didn't get any leads today, just 6 clicks. Just one of those days I guess, hopefully tomorrow will be better!

    Meanwhile, I found a Viral Script on CodeCanyon, got it down on one of my niche sites. Probably going to wait for the recent Youtube update storm to pass over before I buy any BST services. I did however find an SEO fiverr gig, going to give that a try on my niche site.

    My next move is probably going to be ranking my Youtube videos on Google by throwing links at it in conjunction with ranking the videos themselves on Youtube.

    From what I see it's quantity>quality when it comes to ranking videos on Google, but I obviously won't stray too far from building quality links.

    I also downloaded Market Samurai, though I'm open to suggestions for other keyword research tools, I find that MS is somewhat slow. Probably going to take a more in-depth look at the (not really new) Google Keyword Planner since I haven't used it since it replaced the old keyword planner.

    Again, thanks for the support!

    I'm on AdworkMedia! Used it before and it provides great service. I remember that they gave me early payout if I made a support ticket, which I did every month lol.

    Good luck to you too!

    I have no idea, but if it humors you, that's fine with me. :)

    Thanks!

    Have some respect, man. That was his money and it sure was his business.

    Anyway, good luck OP. If what you said is really true, you have done a hell of a good job for this young age. You could do it then, you can do it now. Just bounce back stronger this time.
