    2 days ago I decided to get into making some money online because I have a lot of time to kill for the next couple of months. I read around and did a bit of research and decided to start off small with something that wouldn't cost me anything, so I set-up some PPD (think that's what it's called) links on a free website I created. I went for a an online gaming code type thing and made a bunch of simple YouTube videos on multiple accounts linking to the website. The first day I was very suprised by the results, I made a little over $5. Day 2 however only 0.87, which I don't quite understand because during that day I added two more sites to different games and actually made them look a lot better than my first effort. My expectations were to make a similar amount or possibly more because I figured the videos would be getting some more views and having 3 websites with multiple download links would surely be better than just the one.

    Is this something I should expect early on? I'm maybe being too impatient, it was just a little disheartening to see I didn't even make a dollar for 5 hours or so of repetitive work on that second day. Any tips or advice for me would be greatly appreciated!

    Don't worry about it , some days you earn even $20 and next day a nice 0 . It's just the way it is , the trick is not to give up :) If you already made $5 in your first day and made some more profit on second i would say your doing pretty good keep it up and see where it goes :)

    It all depends on offers. If the user completes a offer which pays less then this will result in lower profits. Just keep going on.....

    Past two days I have had 0 completed offers, I must of just been super lucky on that first day I guess because I've checked all my Youtube videos and only 2 have been removed. Think I need to find some better niches or a new method to try out

    It's going to happen no matter what you just have to keep uploading... I Feel that I wasted some $$ on trying to rank my videos to the top which did not work so now I'm just mass uploading. Accounts are getting deleted pretty fast in about a week so it's kind of discouraging making $10 then making $2 the next day... just don't give up and keep going at it... I uploaded a bunch last night and some of the accounts are already deleted :( and haven't got any completed offers for them... so it feels like hard work got me no where from yesterdays but today's a new day and more uploading! Good luck bro

    Thanks for the replies, getting a few more completions after using vagex and u2bviews to boost my youtube videos. Wondering if there's more I could be doing now.

    Also, could anyone answer if advertising links to virtual products is breaking any laws if the files being uploaded/downloaded are completely fake/copyright free? I know this isn't the way to go if I want to make sustainable long term money but at the moment I'm just trying to get a hang of what works and what doesn't, and doing anything else would cost me money that I know I wouldn't be able to make a profit on at this point.
