    Hello everyone. the title is pretty self explanatory. I plan to use Youtube in conjunction with clickbank to generate some passive income. Right now I am aiming for $20 a day.

    My plans:
    1. Niche Research
    2. Keyword Research
    3. Find Good Quality CB Products to promote.
    4. Do Voiceovers for all of my videos along with presentations using Camtasia.
    5. Purchase Backlinks/High Retention Views & Likes from BHW sources

    Tools:
    1.Google Keyword planner for Keyword research.
    2.Scrapebox to check backlinks of competitors as well as scrape new long tail keywords.
    3.Audio work done in Ableton 9
    4.Recording my voiceovers through my Scarlett 6i6 interface and using 1176 for compression and Waves L1 to bring up the sound in my voiceovers.
    5.Using some instrumentals I have mixed and recorded as background music

    If anybody has any advice please feel free to respond. I plan to update this thread thoroughly each week.

    Also, I have made videos for one of my products already and am about to promote them.

    Let's Get to work baby!:cool:

    I wanted to give you props for setting a realistic goal and go from there. Lots of times you will see these threads where they say "my journey to 1 million dollars a year!"

    This is great because you are setting a solid goal for yourself that you can quickly achieve. You will get a little taste of success which will really drive you forward and you can set a higher goal. Good luck!

    Thank you mate.

    Thanks

    Haha yes I figured I would start on a reasonable goal before i get discouraged with too big of a goal.

    Yes I am following lots of other journeys like man on BHW. All of them inspiring in their own way.

    haha indeed it is expensive. i already have a lot of my own gear. i just want to be able to buy my season pass

    Brilliant! I planned a snowboarding trip with 9 friends from January 31th - February 6th and I'm earning the trip as we speak. Will follow your journey!

    UPDATE
    so today my youtube views are starting to come in. I plan on using u2bviews to boost the video with likes/comments. Also I am now starting to use cleanfiles with youtube to target this same niche as I believe it can be profitable as well.

    UPDATE 11/6/2013

    Made my first IM Money through PPD on CleanFiles Today!

    I made $2.40 today and I am proud of myself! ALso my views and likes/comments started coming in for my video as well as some of the backlinks i purchased. A little technique i am trying is to use cleanfiles in conjunction with Clickbank. I upload what the customer thinks is a free sample for this niche market which hopefully makes the customer think they are getting something of great value for free and to try out.

    UPDATE 11/7/13

    Another download! :D but I only made $.40 from this one. :( Still better than nothing!

    Some good news, I have ranked on the first page on youtube for 2 of my videos. The first Video I am the #1 spot and this niche is not saturated at all but I can see this niche booming VERY soon. On the second video I am in the 5th spot, however I think I will reach the #1 spot within a week or so based on my calculations and the SEO I am doing. The niche for this video is a popular one and it is mildly saturated, but there are usually higher conversions for this.

    P.S.: SEO: One thing I did notice was if you have multiple links in your description youtube will only show the first link on the youtube search page. SO It is best to have your link cloaked and on the VERY first line of your description. My format goes like this: "Check this great <niche keyword here>: <cloaked link here>." I do this because when people search youtube they often don't even watch the video so having your affiliate link or PPD link there will help increase conversions if I am not mistaken.

    TOTAL MADE THIS WEEK: $2.83

    So, what snowboard do you have? I'm hitting up a shop next week for a decent Burton freeride board and proper boots. Tired of rental shit lol
    Nice progress by the way. It may not seem much, but once you 'open the gate' it's only a matter of scaling up.

    UPDATE 11/8/13

    Okay so no sales on Clickbank yet. And i have had another download on Cleanfiles so that is good. I am now ranking on google for these videos. The first video in the unsaturated niche is #1 on page 1 of google for this KW. And the video for the saturated niche with a KW with 10,000+ searches a month is the only video being ranked on the top 5 pages on google. I am #1 on page 2.

    Now I am trying to focus on getting this video on page 1 of google and being #1 on youtube search for this KW. I think once my backlinks start to get picked up by google I will easily hit page #1. If anyone has any advice on this please let me know.

    TOTAL MADE: $3.68

    UPDATE 11/9/13

    Got another download today worth $1.24 :D
    Also today i created a new video targeted at a long tail keyword with 33,000 searches average. I purchased HR views as well as likes and a backlink pyramid to help boost the sites authority. I am really hoping once the backlinks start indexing my videos will begin to rank better on youtube, especially with he new video I made today.

    TOTAL MADE: $4.92

    UPDATE 11/10/13

    Not too much happened today. Just waiting on my views and likes for my new video as well as my backlinks.
    SO far I am averaging a steady 1 download per day lol still a good start for my first full week at this. Also got offered a sponsored tweet for $5 so that adds into my total.

    TOTAL MADE: $10.62

    Side note: On one of my download files i am getting extremely high clicks but i just can't convert those into downloads. If anybody has any advice on this please let me know! thanks.
