    Hi everyone,

    I've been lurking in the shadows for a while here to see if there's something interesting around to make some few bucks.
    A couple of years I've been reading some methods but I was too lazy and I gave up too quickly.
    I would like to contribute and sharing my method which earned me my first couple of dollars.
    If you'll scale it up you can make around 5 dollars - 20 dollars a day easily.
    For some of you advanced internet marketeers it isn't new and I would like to give others a chance too who didn't made any money yet.
    So for that, please excuse me. :)

    So let's start

    You only need two things: A Google + account and a YouTube channel
    First you need to create a new community page on Google +.
    The niche(s) I have used a couple times is travel, animals, sweet recipes,...

    Make sure your profile picture and cover picture looks legit. So for example, for a travel community page use a (not to sexy) girl on the beach and on the cover photo a picture of a nice looking place.

    Happy people attracts a lot of followers, don't ask me why....

    Now you need some content: Get over to Google Images or Flickr or whatever site you may use and grab some pictures of nice looking places and write some decent description when you upload the images to your community page. Don't spam the hell out of it...
    I would upload 20-30 images in the beginning with description

    Okay, now it's time too have some followers on that community page. Google + has a nice #hashtag search just like Facebook. Type in #travel or #travels or #places or something like that and follow all the users who have pictures of travels uploaded to Google + and also +1 them. They will head over to your page and see that you contribute to your community and they will follow you. Google + has also a max follow limiet so don't be too greedy.

    After a week or so your Google + account has now a decent couple of followers. Don't forget to interact with them with for example a trivia question. The more you interact, the more picture will go viral, the more followers you'll get.

    Now, you'll setup a Youtube channel about traveling. Make a presentation for example "The Top 10 most visited places in the world".
    Don't forget to turn Google Adsense on and put it up on the videos.

    Share your videos in your community. They will click the videos and mostly on the Google Ads and you will see your money coming to your account in a couple of days.

    Also, if you want to get more out if it, search for some YouTube SEO courses and also add some subscribers to youtube.
    Just think out of the box a little bit and you will make bacon in no time...

    Let me know what you guys think. This is one of my first post here so I hope you guys find some helpful information in here.

    Glad to hear you made your first $1, NOW scale it up and add a couple more zeros to it :)
