    Hello everyone. First of all I would like to say that I am a n00b to this IM thing. I am not a n00b at online moneymaking though. I have pretty much tried everything from PTC to paid forum posting to article writing. I am even using an hyip at the moment. The most money I made was selling textbooks on Amazon. Alas, I ran out of books to sell, so that source of income was not going to last. Most of my other methods resulted in pennies a day. I mean it's nice to have some extra income, but that is not where I want to go with online moneymaking. I want to be successful!

    The method I plan on using this time is Youtube + Adfly. I plan on posting videos and then providing an Adfly link to something really important in the description. I'm not expecting to be a millionaire with this method, but I do hope to earn a little more money than what I am doing now. I have to start small.

    Goals:

    Short Term:
    Upload at least one video per day with one adfly link.
    Update this thread once per day.
    Earn $5 per day

    Long Term:
    Make IM my primary source of income. I don't plan on quitting my job, but I would like to make this a primary source of income.
    Incorporate other methods to diversify my strategy to promote longevity.

    I hope you will all join me on this venture :).

    What niche videos will you post? And how do you bring traffic to your videos?

    P.S Hope you will succeed!

    I'm sorry but I don't think I'll be giving away my niche. I plan on getting traffic by SEO and I might consider buying views. I don't know yet.

    Today was slow but a good day. I managed to get 2 videos uploaded through adfly. I also got 3 clicks on my links. It's not a lot but hopefully it will increase. I plan on uploading some more videos and adding links. I'm not actually convinced this is a good way of making money yet but it's very early. We shall see what happens :).

    Alright I am having a major issue with google phone verification. I can't make more than one account without getting the message. I don't remember this happening before so now I'll have to deal with this. Maybe this method isn't the best way of making money now. I did make a few more videos but I haven't uploaded them yet.

    lol so time for an update to this dead thread.

    I did the ****** thing and so far I have earned... a whopping 8 cents.

    It doesn't really seem like this is the best method of earning money. I know it CAN be done but it requires a ton of links with good traffic. I do like the fact that my adfly earnings are practically on autopilot now. I earn money every day (no matter how small) with no work at all.

    Anyway, I still have a goal of $5 a day. I think $5 a day on adfly requires a ton of work. I will still use them and scale but it can't be my primary method. I am going to try my hand at PPD, Amazon and YT for now. I am an idea person. I have way too many ideas but have no way of implementing them. I find it difficult for me to stick to one thing at a time so I will use variation. I know sticking to one thing may be more profitable, but if I quit it surely won't be lol.

    Today I:
    Got accepted to/signed up to 3 PPD networks
    Started an Amazon Blogger blog and added 3 new products

    Tomorrow I will:
    Create some original content to upload on PPD Network (start with one document)
    Create new video to promote PPD content
    Upload on YT account

    If I have some extra time, I will add some content to my Amazon Blog :).

    An easier but more active approach to gain $5 would be publishing on postloop. Check it out if its startup cash you need for larger projects. PM if you need more details and I'll give u some assistance. Otherwise. Good Luck! :)
