    I've read ebooks which teach a method of contacting video owners to offer to pay them to put an offer in their video description. Has anyone here had success with this particular method? If so, is it worth it for the amount of time invested doing it compared to creating your own videos? Also, what type of offers did you have most success with i.e. CPS, email/zip submits, etc..

    I would think that is a great method, as long as the video was relevant.

    I would think it would be a great method too if you can find the right people, but... I have a feeling if the video owner is smart, he/she might do a little research on how to monetize the video themselves after seeing someone is interested...

    Most likely because your message looked amature and that you were looking for a close to peanut price no offense. Video channel owners are not dumb and they are Internet marketers themselves.

    I know of a smart piece of software that finds trending videos for your keyword. It saves a lot of time and means you can contact only video owners who are getting the most views.

    Pm me if you want details

    Two questions.

    How many video owners did you contact and what price did you offer them?
