    First of all, I hope that EVERYONE is having an absolutely GREAT day. I just wanted to share my quick little story. About 3 years ago I was making $7 a day on a crappy little YouTube video. Since then I have made a few dollars here and there but I never dedicated myself.

    So just recently I decided to put in some work, create a website, and make a video in an upcoming niche. Let me just say, that was the best thing that ever happened to me in terms of my online life. Those $500 days just seem unachievable when you are making nothing. However once you start making $15 a day, $500 a day seems a reach away.

    I did not have the balls/guts to start making money online. I was afraid of wasting time, losing money, etc. The best time to start Internet Marketing was 10 years ago; the second best time is NOW. Just pull the trigger and start working. Put something out there for the world to see.

    As you can see by the red arrow that I placed, there is an obvious upward trend. Early days like April 11[SUP]th[/SUP] had a UK dude complete an offer. I see some huge days ahead as my video climbs the SERPs.

    If you have any questions, ask me anything. I am going to be here for a longtime folks...so just ask away!

    Nice bro, now you can scale it up pretty easily.
    I'm also starting with CPA and my main problem is sticking with a method or niche. I have created many landing pages in gaming niche and started posting here and there, I got few clicks but no one has filled any offer or downloaded anything. I;m going to do the same until I find some good traffic source.
    My question to you is-
    I haven't tried anything with YouTube and CPA. Do you think that I should give it a try, cause I can only spend 1 hour on it and DO you think that is enough time to start making something??

I read your post i know the feeling :) just like to congratulate you and wish you good luck those $500 days are not so far, you are on the right track just find a way to automate the process and you will be gold.

    You need quality if you want to get anywhere with YouTube. Obviously many people are making bank with thousands of videos; but one video is enough to make some decent cash.

    For quality, I would recommend that you spend a good two hours making a video. Write a script, record your screen (or use a camera), and use your voice. The video can be as short as a minute long! Just get straight to the point.

    After you post your video, share it on Google+ multiple times and any other social network that you can. After a few days, figure out the average amount of views of videos in your niche and try to replicate that. If your competitors have 20,000 views... drip 25,000 views to your video!

    Research how to put together a proper title and description. Your goal is to increase the longevity of your video.

    In total, I spent $10 on YouTube views and likes and I have made $100+ from it. The number is rapidly increasing.

    Good luck Intruder! Thanks for the excellent question. If you need any additional help, just ask! :)

    A perfect combination of patience, views, subscribers, relevant videos, tags, description, social signals, likes, dislikes, relevant comments, account age... and yeah, that's about it! Any information can be found here. I do not use and unlisted method and whatnot.

    Eh, it was an OKAY comment on twerkit's behalf. Haha :)

    You are 100% welcome, Intruder!

    I am in greyhat basically. It is a free game download but I offer actual means of downloading the game for free. Back when I didn't know how to use YouTube, I had plenty of videos removed.

    The video that this thread is about has been up for a month now and is going strong.

    Are you saying a single video ranked is making you 300$ a day?

    Yes, you are correct. Right I am making $15 a day and the number is going up by about a dollar a day. I am at the bottom of the YouTube search so in another week or two I should be making $50 a day or so.

    Audacity to record audio, a software literally titled ‘Screen Recorder' to record my screen (hint: check kickass.to), Windows Live Movie maker to paste together clips and audio. Nothing fancy.

    Thank you LoftPower!

    OP congrats and keep up the good work.

    I intent to start testing some stuff of YT. The situation about copyrights there is not very clear to me. Let's say I want to use an already existing videos(nothing popular, videos created by ordinary people) with low amount of views 1-2k mb 3. If I spin a video a little bit and it pass the uploading stage, what is the chance to get penalized in future(video or acc deleted). Please share your thoughts about your experience on that matter.

    Thank you so much for the kind words netcelal!

    I am not very experienced in this area of YouTube but I would say if there are only 2,000 views; you can get away with quite a bit in terms of changing a few things around and posting. I am not going to talk about chance at all because I am nowhere near the level of expertise to guarantee anything.

    Good work OP. You've figured out the secret -- it's simply a matter of not giving up until you get where you want to go.

    Keep it up.

    Hello, SPQR. Great results. Please tell me what is more important views or seo at Youtube? I mean there are a lot of competitors who may do a similar video and they have 100k+ views, so they are on the 1st page of SERP. At the same time your video with good seo is somewhere at 5+ page of SERP. Can (purchased) high-retention views improve the situation and rank you high? Thank you for reply!
