    Hey guys! I've read this forum for years now and never really contributed much and I want to change that! So here's the first step!

    I used to hit this all the time, but it's been dropping every month. On top of that, all of my Ecommerce sites are still stuck and not recovering well from Panda/Penguin, so it's time for me to take action!

    I'm 20 years old and I just got my own place last year when I was 19, just as Panda/Penguin hit my Ecommerce sites. Since then, I've been mostly living off my savings and this can't go on any longer! (WTF was I thinking letting it last this long?!?!)

    So here we go, my first step is to get my YouTube up and cranking better than it's ever been! (This will be a little easier since the Holidays are here, but I've never hit $500 BEFORE pre-rolls).

    Since we're only 6 days into the month, I'm going to post the previous days starting at November 1st and let's see if we can't make this month the best month yet!

    Hi, good luck with your juorney!
    Can you answer few questions?
    1. How many videos did you add to achieve those stats?
    2. Do you make quality or quantity videos?
    3. What (broad) niche are your vlogs?

    Thanks!

    1 - I have almost 1,300 videos so far, all of them are consecutive, so it's taken a while to build it up for sure, but I love doing it!

    2 - I only upload one video a day, this isn't one of the get rich quick things, this was a long term project that I just enjoy doing, but I decided to post it up here to keep me motivated.

    3 - They're on EVERYTHING, literally EVERYTHING, I mean I have 1,300 videos, so I use my imagination frequently haha.

    I'm doing 1 video every day of just what I do in life, if it's an exciting day and I go to an amusement park, or on a road trip, or snowboarding, I video it all. If it's a boring day and I stay home and work on my Ecommerce sites, I try to speak about something that's controversial, or something positive to help people be encouraged.

    Look up "Charles Trippy". I do basically what he does, I actually know him personally along with a lot of other "big name" YouTubers, so here's my journey to becoming one of those "Big Names"!

    Those are on one account, like I said, just about 1,300 days consecutively, so every day in a row for 1,300 days. It's not a get rich quick, but if I stopped making videos, it'd be fairly residual for a while.
    I'm only doing 1 a day, but I agree, I need to comment more. I have too many projects I'm working on =P

    Do all your earnings come from the youtube partnership thing (I don't know what it's called) ? Have you ever tried some kind of promotion on the description box?

    All of my earnings I'm posting here do, but yes, I do use AD network links in the description for extra income. That typically averages anywhere from $50-$150 a month on top of the adsense.

    If I understand it right and correct, you have already places some CPA offer links in the description right? That is good as well because after the video they might click the link. Good luck :)

    Thanks, and AWESOME!! For what I do, I just use 1 account. If you're doing the freebie offers, I would use a separate account for each offer. That's just my opinion though, maybe someone else can share on that?


    Thank you! No, I don't like the traffic exchange stuff, just because I have so much at risk since they're all on one account. I have used YTNuke before and that is probably the best service out there. I wouldn't mess around with the other exchange ones. If you do YTNuke they actually promote it out to real people, so you always get more views than you pay for and they're all adsense safe =)

    I would, but I don't want to give it out just yet. I'd like to remain anonymous :bigeyes2:

    I'm sure if you search for vloggers you'll find me, you just won't know it's me ahaha
