    OK - so this is going to be my second thread on the journey forum. My last thread failed due to a real lack of interest and time investment on my part, I admit that and I lost out a lot in terms of cash. So, my new journey is going to be centered around the wonderful world of YT mixed in with CPA, PPD & Clickbank offers. If anyone has been following Maggeran's Thread, I've been sort of following in his footsteps along with my own flavours along the way. Let me first of all share with you all what I currently have:

    - MVB Pro
    - GSA Search Engine Ranker
    - Private Proxies
    - 50 PVA YT accounts
    - Blogger Account
    - Adsense account

    I'm sure I'm missing something in there, but that's the basics. My method is something like this:

    1. Create a video in my niche with a specific keyword in mind (my niche lets me do recordings on my computer with some screen capture software, so I talk)
    2. Run video through some watermarking software to keep it my property. (Or block out any private information if I ceebed doing a watermark)
    3. Put video into MVB Pro along with my keyword loaded description and tags
    4. Upload with a random account and proxy using MVB Pro
    5. Assign some views if it's a competitive keyword (there are a lot of keywords for my niche)
    6. Create a blog using blogger for that keyword (usually I make it an EMD or as close as I can)
    7. Write some non-spammy looking blog posts with keywords and download links throughout
    8. Bulk ping and ping farm both the youtube video and the blog
    9. Sit back and enjoy

    Now - that's about all there is to my method at the moment. I'm pondering the usefulness of blogger blogs as the landing page of the videos because I tend to see really low conversions, but I'm currently trying a few different themes across my 5-6 blogs for each different keyword.

    In the title I mention that this is a scaling journey, because I want to be able to continue on with something and feel accomplished at each step of the way. My goal hierarchy is below, I'll update this post as I hit each mark with the date it was achieved and the time it's taken me since my last goal. Also, I'm imposing a harsh restriction on my goals, I need to hit the goal for 7 days in a row before I consider it to be accomplished.


    1. $10/day
    2. $25/day
    3. $50/day
    4. $100/day
    5. $150/day
    6. $250/day
    7. ???/day

    My overall goal is to be able to have a > $250 a day income from this and hopefully offset some of my incurred costs. I'll try and keep this thread updated every day with what I'm doing and how the day has gone in terms of income. I sort of want this thread to be educational as well as a motivator for me, so if you're a veteran on the scene, or a beginner that wants to know more, post here! I'll try and answer any questions that you might have and even if I can't I'm sure someone else reading will be able to. So, I think the way I'll do my daily rundowns is to do an daily income and outgoings report and then a details section for any thing of note that I've done during that day. At the end of each week (probably a sunday because I have a job,) I'll post the weeks incomings and outgoings as a total.

    I also think that I'd like this thread to be a place where people can share some knowledge on how they've overcome hurdles and barriers that are common in the space of YT + PPD / CPA. I know there are a lot and I know there are a lot of ways around them.

    So, let me do my current report:

    CPA:

    [TR="bgcolor: transparent"] [/TR] [TR="bgcolor: transparent"] [/TR]
    Clicks Leads Earnings EPCToday 5 0 $0.00 $0.00

    PPD:
    Today's Earnings $0.00

    Today I:

    - Uploaded a new video in a really hot niche, assigned it some views in viralsocials
    - Created a blog to help with conversions, created some content for blog

    Tonight I will:

    - Create some more videos (2-3) for my new niche
    - Create a template for my watermarking as it's taking me too long to do it at the moment
    - Create a spun YT video description for my niche so I don't have to keep writing content (I'm lazy and don't have the time)
    - Assign each new video some views, likes, and favorites in enhanceviews

    Observations: Getting organic views on my YT videos is really challenging and I think it's related to my keyword selection and density on my youtube pages, does anyone have any advice on this?

    How long should a YT description be, how many references and how many keywords do you generally use per video / description?
    Do you spam tags at the bottom of your descriptions?

    Here's hoping to a long and profitable journey. I'm dedicated and ready to get my hands dirty with some different techniques and methods to get me to my goals.

    Thanks.

    Hey guys, so we're onto the day 1 report:

    CPA:

    [TR="bgcolor: transparent"] [/TR] [TR="bgcolor: transparent"] [/TR]
    Clicks Leads Earnings EPCToday 3 0 $0.00 $0.00

    PPD:
    Today's Earnings: $0.00

    Clickbank:

    Hops: 1
    Income: $0.00

    Pretty abysmal overall - I'm not phased to be honest. There's a lot of things that I can do with the videos that I currently have up, I just need a little time away from work and the girlfriend to get it all done :p.

    So today I:

    - Uploaded a new video in my niche (Only one though, didn't get the chance to record more then that).
    - Assigned it some views, like, and subs.
    - Spent some time making a decent description with a good keyword density (I think that's what's been lacking in my previous attempts)
    - Improved on my blog for this niche

    My next steps:

    - Record at least 4 videos in the next few days in the same CPA niche, each targetting different keywords with low comp high search
    - Write good 400-500 word descriptions for each with good keyword density
    - Upload them all to YT with different accounts
    - Do some research on CBEngine to find another Clickbank product I can promote (My current one has > 1 gravity :S)
    - Fix up the landing pages on the other blogger blogs that I have because I think that's the reason they're not converting well.
    - Make a generic template that I can use over and over for new bloggers so that I can spin out new niche blogs in a few seconds as opposed to making a new one each time.
    - Improve the descriptions of the YT videos that I currently have uploaded, using free keyword density tools to get a ratio of 1-7% of my keyword
    - Start recording down which keywords I already have videos for as it's starting to get out of hand and I don't know which vid is targetting which keyword.
    - Breakdown my Google Keyword Tool list of keywords into ones that I want to target next based on monthly locals (targetting between 1500-15000 hits p/m)
    - Source out some good images and things to use as part of my blogs, I have scrapebox for this, so I might end up doing some article spinning to get some randomized images in my different landing pages.

    OK, that's a lot of work and I don't expect to be getting all of that done in a day. But it gives me a great list to go off when I get the time to tick some things off.

    I've had a really big couple of days at my real work over the end of the week so I haven't been able to get anything done or update you guys on how it's all going, but I'm going to try and put some time aside over the weekend to get a post put together and let you all know how it's going for me.

    Well,with my very busy weekend over, I can can get back to writing out a little bit about how my PPD journey is going. The weekend? Well, lets not go there, I think overall I had around 4 clicks for both days, and couldn't spend any time in front of the computer so couldn't make any new content or tick off any of the things I had on my list. However, TODAY (being Monday here in Australia,) I broke a few barriers down, I got my first day in which I:

    - Uploaded more then one video
    - Got TWO leads in a day
    - Had both leads convert into PPD downloads also

    Pretty happy with that, but I'm going to remain under the assumption that it was a plain out fluke because my overall UV hasn't really changed, it's just perhaps people feel a little more "clicky" on a Monday? I don't know. So what else is happening? Well, I'm working hard at my video count, I've realised that I'm producing good quality content and just need to be able to push it out the door in a more timely manner and with a broader range of keywords in order to secure more of the niche "real-estate." Clickbank hasn't been performing very well disappointingly, and I'm struggling with keeping the same niche promoted, I may end up writing a new video or two for it or scrapping it entirely.

    On the organisational side of the journey, I've set up my Google Drive account into a bit of a more streamlined system so I know where I'm at with keywords, which I've used and which I still need to work on. I've also started using trello.com which is awesome for project management, I actually use it for my full time work, and so it only seemed natural to use it for my BHW stuff too!

    Well, here are the earnings:

    CPA:

    [TR="bgcolor: transparent"] [/TR] [TR="bgcolor: transparent"] [/TR]
    Clicks Leads Earnings EPC CRToday 7 2 $2.25 $0.32 28.57%
    PPD:

    Today's Earnings $0.57

    Clickbank hasn't had any income, but I'm seeing a sporadic increase in hops, not sure if it's due to my video, or just a random thing. I'm considering doing some SB blasts on my youtube videos, if anyone has any experience with this, and has had it have a positive effect on their campaigns, please let me know, I'd like to know if it's oing to help me out or not.

    Till tomorrow!
