    Heya everyone!

    I'm starting today my personal journal. I've started on Youtube + CPA about 4 days ago, so I'll just update it with my last 4 days and keep it going.

    My goal is to reach 1200$ a month. At the moment I'm jobless because I've stayed home the last full year, taking care of my grandpa that has Alzheimer's disease. I've decided that he needs a better place to go, with better conditions and with professional people that can help him so I'm starting my IM journey in order to gather 1200$ per month to be able to pay for a retirement home that can take care of him and improve his lifestyle.

    I'm really new to this IM stuff. I've lurked a lot around the forums and decided its time to take action.

    At the moment I have 2 youtube accounts and I'm running 1 Niche video in each account.

    I've boosted both videos with subscribers / views / likes / favorites.

    Both videos have their own landings pages on blogger.


    Here are my earnings since I've started.


    06-05-2013 - Total Earnings: $12.30 | 3 conversions | 39 clicks | AVG EPC: $0.32 | Conversion Rate: 7.69%

    06-06-2013 - Total Earnings: $25.75 | 24 conversions | 380 clicks | AVG EPC: $0.07 | Conversion Rate: 6.32%

    06-07-2013 - Total Earnings: $29.90 | 29 conversions | 385 clicks | AVG EPC: $0.08 | Conversion Rate: 7.53%

    06-08-2013 - Total Earnings: $9.00 | 9 conversions | 150 clicks | AVG EPC: $0.06 | Conversion Rate: 6.00%


    Total Earnings: $76.95 | 65 conversions | 532 clicks | AVG EPC: $0.14 | Conversion Rate: 12.22% | 230 active campaigns

    So this is it. I'll keep this thread updated.

    Any tips / help are appreciated!

    Thanks for your time.

    Thanks for the support everybody!

    All my traffic and conversions are coming from a single video that is not even ranked on the first 5 pages of youtube for the targeted keyword. The other one isn't getting traffic yet.

    I think once I find a couple more great niches like the first one, I can scale this pretty good.

    Also, since one of the videos is giving me a good amount of leads, should I get domain for it instead of the current blogger one?

    I want to offer you a simple trick if your product is possible to go viral. Social Exchange networks got facebook shares, and someone could really share your post not just a bot and that is a great source of traffic. As well it could be good if you describe your product a bit more to know which you need to improve. You could get more conversions if your optimize langind pages for example or if they are already ok. Think where to get plenty of targeted traffic. I like facebook for example :)

    Update of todays earnings:

    06-08-2013 - Total Earnings: $26.75 | 14 conversions | 128 clicks | AVG EPC: $0.21 | Conversion Rate: 10.94% |

    I'm still searching for more niches to get into and figuring if I should start getting some Youtube accounts + Private Proxies to get some more videos going or if I should upload a couple more on my 2 youtube accounts.

    Again, Thanks everyone for their support.

    I've been browsing the forums looking for youtube verified accounts and private proxies.

    Can someone with experience on this field recommend me a proxy provider that works well with youtube? I'm planning on doing some mass video blasting.

    Final earnings for today:

    Total Earnings: $32.55 | 19 conversions | 199 clicks | AVG EPC: $0.16 | Conversion Rate: 9.55% |


    Broke my record! $32.55! Pretty happy with it. Tomorrow I'll probably be sending some social signs to my videos and let them rest for a while so they can rank.
