    Hi BHW, I've been apart of this forum for about 3 years now and I started off with article writing and moved on to affiliate marketing and finally decided to settle down with CPA.

    I've been working with CPA for about a year now?? I took my time and built me a real website on a hosted wordpress blog and did all the things you do to rank in google and I was doing pretty good until Googles new update. I basically went from making around $25 a day to about $0.38 cents a day. :(

    Anyway I've decided to continue trying but without a website this time and only using Youtube.

    I just started yesterday and I only have one video lol. For this video I'm using Youtube + mediafire+ CPA

    I'm just going call today Day 1.

    Day 1:


    Material Used:

    • 8 youtube accounts
    • Mediafire account
    • CPA network (using adscendmedia)
    • Content locker (using content locker provided by Adscendmedia
    • Cyberlink Powerdirector




    What I did was pick create a quick video using Cyberlink Powerdirector uploaded it to youtube (You can upload video to youtube within Powerdirector) Created a password protected .rar file using WinRAR and add password.txt file which included a link to my password protected gateway. Uploaded the files to mediafire and added that link to the description of my youtube video. Added some bought views and also got some views/likes from vagex and enhanceviews. I also used switched between my 8 youtube accounts and liked my video and certain comments that I felt would give me more downloads. I also commented on a view competitors videos promoting my own video and liked them up to top comment.

    My Stats for Today:

    Views: 13400
    Downloads: 2076
    Clicks: 103
    Leads: 11
    Money Earned: $8.43

    Advice that i plan to implement myself: Instead of downloading and editing videos, put actual effort into making it. For example make a tutorial use a mic, and try to make it as professional as possible.

    Basically Quality Over Quantity

    also 13400 views and 2076 downloads, I am not an expert but I think is quite good.
    Also probabily real views are even less.

    You still don't get it?
    He upload a textfile in a folder and zip it. then when someone download the textfile message should something like "go to this link to get the serial key"

    So the chances of conversion is after downloading the mediafire.

    I believe you get it now after reading this.

    Lol yeah I probably would have made more with a landing page in the description instead of the mediafire download link.

    The files in the download link were password protected and I'm sure once most people seen that they deleted the download instantly instead of opening the password.txt file, copying the link and filling out an offer, which is a lot more effort than they were expecting.

    What type of video are your promoting?

    With that many leads if you had them put in their email for a free ipad, ipod, etc. offer, you'd make $1.25+ per email submit.

    It's in the music niche and I'm new to this content gateway thing. I haven't exactly figured out how to make the offers I want to show come up yet.

    I also got a lot of traffic from other countries and most of the high paying offers are pin confirm. The rest mostly are $0.50 or less unfortunately

    Yeah thanks. I figured saying music was very broad so I wasn't giving away too much but I won't give away any of my future niches.

    Just remember that ads-centmedia doesn't allow everything related to f a c e book even the traffic comes from y o utube.
    Question: Is it (your music niche) against the copy right content?

    Nice Journey
    2 Questions Though,

    What did you show in your video and how long was it?
    How many views/likes did you get from Vagex/EnchanceViews ?
