    Most of you know me by my awkward story of CPA discovery by my mom or most of you know me by celebrating my all time high. Well I give up. As most of you know all my niches were removed two days ago. Okay fair enough I just invested $200 on re-uploading them and re-ranking them. I woke up this morning to see all of them have been removed again. I seriously thought I could get into this business and I was actually making good money with this but now I just realize its a downhill battle, a slow swallowing quick sand till it finally goes up to your head and takes your videos with it. I'm at a loss of words because I am back to SQUARE ONE where I didn't even know what PPD was.


    Lord have mercy.

    If you're giving up so easily you should probably stop IM altogether.

    If you can make money with that, you can make money with anything.

    Put your head to it.

    I am in the same spot as you right now.

    Don't give up. We all have our ups and downs. Look at other niches and methods. I took a $1500 a month hit a few months ago, making peanuts currently but the systems remain the same. Just adjust and move forward.

    You shouldn't be giving up so easily considering the fact that you were actually making progress.
    Take a break, relax and come back with a plan 2 times as strong as before. We all learn from our mistakes.

    I think maybe I should stop using saturated niches.

    well, if you try to start in saturated/popular/high competitive niches you will probably fail.. You will do better in low competitive and untapped niches if you can find any

    This is the point you should consider, not the "giving up" one.

    But I thought unsaturated niches or barely known niches get little to no traffic?

    How do you even manage to spend $200 on your videos? What are you all purchasing? :|

    I don't understand why people support these threads.
    If you can seriously give up so easily, then this isn't really for you.
    This is like the 2nd time YT knocked you off. People have been going thru this time and time again.
    YT is a quick game. Buy a fiverr gig and you can be ranked #1 for your niche in a week. There are ppl who spend months and years trying to rank on google. They don't give up when they get knocked off the top. If I were you, I'd just keep going and learn what you did wrong and not do it again.
    Either way, you can give up if you want. Youtube is very lucrative and you're just making it easier for the rest if you do.

    Too many cry babies on the forum these days. Learn something from your failure instead of just quitting. Like in this case build your own site and try to rank your site pages. Youtube is a bitch in deleting videos. I am just wondering whether are you uploading them with some software or manually. I would recommend you to upload the videos from different IP. Get a Dynamic IP to go the cheaper route if you cant afford private proxies.

    Its not the right time to quit. Make it a point to exhaust all kinds of mistakes you could probably commit in youtube+PPD and eliminate each of the failure by working on them. This is how millionares think and stop being a cry baby as it demotivates others too who want to do something.

    okay yes cpa marketing sucks, its a downhill battle,etc. Now what? So how does that help you? Just give up, its pathetic how you create these threads to get attention. You either decide to stick to it until you hit massive success or just shut up and carry on your mediocre life like before.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with quitting something if it makes sense to quit. In fact, it's a rather valuable quality in any business. If this isn't working, try something else. The road to success certainly isn't a straight line.
    Reminds me of this:

    Low volume niche can be unprofitable yeah, but that's if you pick a bad one. There's a company out there that makes high priced, high end children's bedroom decor. $150k in revenue just from 130 customers. All from social media. Niche, low volume, but high return.

    There are plenty of niches out there. The more specific it is, the less competition, but not necessarily the less lucrative. Be a 3D printing affiliate. There's one idea. Very specific niche and not many affiliates, but 3D companies and their stocks are booming. Great industry.

    Just think instead of whining.

    Dude Ive been fighting for the keyword "Social Media Marketing" for one of my sites for 5 years now. Spent $1000s on every SEO tool you can imagine. There are like 50 of us jumping all over the place and honestly we are probably all on BHW doing the same shit as each other. I was page 1 number 8 for two days this whole time.

    My suggestion is don't put all your eggs in one basket. Whatever you were doing keep it up but simultaneously do 10 other things. Then when one idea is suffering there is a good chance another one is booming.

    Yes its more challenging but thats part of the fun isn't it?

    I realize a lot of people make big bucks chasing after fringe methods on the bleeding edge of getting banned, and maybe they like it like that. Personally, I hate waking up in the morning thinking my stuff might have all gotten banned overnight.

    Long term you're going to want stable methods. Although that's a little hard to find in the SEO world, reuploading something that just got banned seems like you're just asking to waste your time.

    Find new methods. When you've failed, try new methods. When you're succeeding, try new methods so that if you lose your stable method you have something to fall back on.

    @OP, just lost around $200 two days ago on 1 niche, + around $130 on SEO for that niche, then invested $80 again on the same niche... I guess you are doing PPD with fake/copyrighted stuff.. Expect to be removed, but if your niche is good, don't just give up because you got removed, as i said i just reinvested in the niche, i know its gonna be removed this week again, but ill reinvest, because my niche brings me money...
    The same thing happend to me when i started, but i never lost hope, just tried and tried and tried untill i got it right...Don't give up that easy!
    Feel free to drop me a PM if you need any help/tips. ;)
