    Hello ladies and gents!

    To get a bit more motivation and see how i am compairing to some other first timers I thought i would give an overlay of what i have done so far! This is the first time i have created something like this so bare with me!

    I started off a couple weeks ago just solidly reading this forum, i could not get away. I searched methods looking for methods i could do from home with little knowledge just to start off.

    After reading up i decided the first thing i would start is a blog on tumblr following a guide i found on here. From this guide i made my own subtle changes just to make it a bit easier to start off with. I created a tumblr blog based on the niche of tattoos, different and thought there would be low competition. I used a scrape program to gain around 1000 pictures and currently have around 230 pictures uploaded over the last few days. i have 69 followers with adsense on the blog... No clicks yet!

    Whilst tumblr was on auto pilot i decided on implement the idea of copying videos from one url onto my own using videozed, up to $0.01 at the minute with that.

    Finally the last method i have used is done via youtube. I downloaded a video of two women making out (the start of a bog standard lesbian porno) and put some captions on windows movie maker promoting the idea of being "inbetween the two girls". In the description i uploaded a link to ****** which redirected to an adult friendfinder affiliate (two for the price of one?), so far i have zero clicks but 320 views and 2 likes...

    My main issue is that i dont want to put in any money before i made some, this means that initially income will be slow however this is not an issue as im currently employed as an apprentice mechanical engineer, would still be nice if it picked up a bit though ;).

    My future plan is to make a bunch of autoblogs with my own domains and use wordpress to create it, i read a guide on this only a couple days ago and it looks doable.


    For some off you guys who are doing well i had an idea:
    If you had a website with all clickbank affiliate links which links to a product review. If the affiliate link is used you offer a small cashback scheme. You get $45 for certain product then offer cashback of $5, they are getting it cheaper so chances are you will sell more on your website compared to others...? Please let me know what you think of this idea and feel free to give it a try, i simply dont yet have the skills.

    Any advise for a um...newbie? Also anyone know of any good guides for both wordpress and seo? Would be nice to have all the information in one place, if not no hard feelings!

    Thanks for reading and hopefully next time we speak i will be on atleast £10 a day!

    And that's just the start! Keep on promoting whatever you have until you see the money coming. Just make sure you got the content and monetisation in place.

    Don't go with the adfly methods, you only end up with a couple of dollars max, and that's after like a thousand clicks. Instead, try to aim higher.

    You could always start by doing YouTube + PPD? From there you could get some startup money for bigger projects in the future :)

    Yeah you're better off doing PPD or CTR.

    Hey, you're idea is pretty good. Go and maximize it! Most of the greatest CEOs we have today fought YEARS to see the goods, just be patient and keep on. The only thing in the world that keeps a person from making money is patience.

    Thanks for the support, so i uploaded a txt file with cleanfiles with a url for an adult dating site... so far i have nothing its confusing me i have over 2800 views on the youtube video but no downloads, im tempted to possibly download a load of women making out videos and using adsense see how that goes.

    Thats not against there ToS is it??

    All of this at the minute is just testing but would be nice to see something working.

    As well as youtube i have still been trying my tumblr, i have 188 followers and atleast 100 views a day but no ad clicks. With my blog im still trying different things, today i changed the theme on it and placed couple ads just need to wait a couple days now and see what happens!

    Wish me luck :D

    Don't give up. You are doing fine. Start is always the hardest part.

    That is actually funny 2800 views, no downloads ...!! Bad luck, I guess.

    Was great reading your story, keep updated.

    This thing has turned into a bit of a journal, if someone wants to move it feel free!

    So just a little update on what i have done tonight.

    I started of the evening by creating another tumblr for adult conent, done the basics eg downloaded images, set up queue of 300 and an avatar! This is now often uploading pictures. On the tumblr i put down one ad at the basic size of 300 by 250...i think, this ad is for a cam site i get commision anytime someone has bought something who created an account through my link. lets see how that goes.

    For my youtube account i have modified what im doing slightly, i am keeping the PPD link on the video descriptions however im also including a link to my tumblr blog for extra traffic. I plan on uploading a video everyday or maybe two, will see how it goes.

    Doing these little posts help me get motivated, will probably keep doing it.

    My target: $1 a day, Lets start off with something which doesnt seem to hard, once achieved just a case of scaling up.

    Wish me luck,

    Hey guys just a question that i have!

    For my youtube vid it has boosted up 10k views being at 6k yesterday, the bad news is that i only have 6 impressions and 1 click on my PPD any ideas on how to boost it?

    To try something else at the same time with PPD i have created 12 torrents each with 200 password protected adult pictures with the password on a file on the PPD site, i hope this will work.

    So any advise on my youtube vid would be great, thanks!

    "My main issue is that i dont want to put in any money before i made some, this means that initially income will be slow however this is not an issue as im currently employed as an apprentice mechanical engineer, would still be nice if it picked up a bit though"

    I wish I could pull that off....seems I am always stuck in the old adage "it takes money to make money" and its something that I have just come to expect over life....the more I put in the more I get back

    Rather than cashback you can offer relevant PLR bonuses. The trick is to set up a single opt in at a good autoresponder service and tell them to email their buyer ref. to you at [your-account]AT[your-autoresponder] to receive the bonus - this puts them on your email list so you can build up a list of buyers and spam them at your convenience. An old trick, but it is useful for anybody selling Clickbank stuff.

    hey again guys, so finally got my first PPD download... i have around 40k views on youtube and 1 download...
    so any ideas with whats up with that?
    Also with the torrents i think i got an issue with my interenet connection which is awsome! Unfortunatly this is gunna need to be looked at in order to get anything major done with my torrents and wont have a chance to take a look for a good couple days which is unfortunate, awell all part of the learning curve!

    Today i tried the idea of e-whoring to see what happens, i tried 2 different ways to get a bit of interested one did better than the other but nothing of major interest.
    the first method was to pose as a 23year old female on a chat room, i was trying to advertise my own room by sweet talking guys (felt really strange!) got a couple of interestes and a few people going to the website but so far nothing, will see what happens over the next couple days.
    The second method i tried was to act as a Cam Scout as i called it, once again in chat rooms i looked for women over the age of 18 and asked about jobs and such, had one possible interest, with her i think she will check the site but not sure after that.

    Another day done but back to work now so will have less time with IM, even if i dont make money with this im enjoying spending my time doing it! New methods keep interesting me but stopping myself from doing too many at once is hard!

    Oh also my tumblr blog is up to nearly 300 followers which is nice and my youtube video had a huge boost in views so things are on the rise nicely!

    Just checked my cleanfiles stats for you:

    Impressions: 132
    Clicks: 4
    Downlads: 1

    Total: $0.47 - All from 40k youtube views, Awell!!


    Thanks for reading guys and girls andy advise is appreciated!

    Not done much today unfortunatly, browsed the forum and uploaded images to tumblr queue but thats about it.

    Some stats for my attempts:

    Tumblr-Main: This blog hit 300 followers!! woooooo! also on this i reblogged an image and changed teh clickthru to a clickbank offer, had a reblog of my reblog within 5 minutes so will see how this pans out.
    Tumblr-Adult: This blog is still growing but slowly, currently 19 followers.
    Torrents: These will be stuck untill the weekend when i should have a chance to mess about with my routers and such.
    Youtube: Vid1 - 60k Views 41 likes
    Vid2 - 2.5k Views 6 likes
    Cleanfiles: Now this is interesting me still, for today i hit 31 impressions and 3 clicks but no downloads. These stats normally double whilst im asleep as im guessing its when americans are online (only a guess)
    Adsense: Still nothing but since the end of the holiday my views have gone down to 80 per day, understandable.

    I was toying with the idea of using minuteworkers with cleanfiles earlier but decided against it for now. I think i have a lot on the go for now... Might do some coursework on the weekend :D Mixing Work, College and IM is harder than i looks ya know!

    Thanks all but time for bed!

    Due to the request to keep posted i will until i get told to stfu or gtfo.

    So lots of research later and i have come to a conclusion!

    Tumblr is still growing currently over 350 followers and 30 on the other.
    My youtube video got 110k views, then was deleted last night by youtube. Not a big deal wasnt getting much from PPD anyways but i still have another vid up with 4k views at the minute.

    Many people here are probably thinking that i have my fingers in to many pies and to be honest they are probably right however for years i have have planned on making a website just never pulled my finger out my arse and done it.

    Last few days i have been researching micro niche sites checking out youtube videos, looking at examples, how to profit from them, how to find a profitable niche and so on. I think i have found my niche but im going to do a slight twist to normal, i plan to make almost 5 micro niche sites in one. I will have the main homepage with the main micro niche on it then going out to other pages with ... micro micro niches i guess.

    I want to use amazon affiliate with adsense and possibly clickbank dependant on if i can find a well enough relating clickbank offer.

    I am going to do all article writing through fiverr due to the fact i think they will probably be a lot better than what i can do.
    The site will be made through wordpress once i have figured out how to use it, all of this will just be a huge learning curve for me.

    Also i have an exact keyword match for my domain as a .org, havent bought it yet as there is a bit more information i want to gather. Just need to stay motivated.

    Thanks guys no doubt i have missed some information, if anyone has good information on building these sites please leave a post on here as i cant yet get PMs, all good fun.
