    Hello everyone! I have been reading a lot of journeys lately, and I must say, I felt compelled to contribute my own story. I held off for a while because I felt I had nothing to share. When I was talking to some fellow CPA-ers, I was telling them things, and they were amazed at some of them. I thought most of it was just common sense, but I guess not. This journey will consist of my attempts, the results of those attempts, and what I plan on doing next. I am going to keep this as professional and possible, and make sure everything is grammatically correct (I am a grammar-freak).
    I may or may not reveal niche information or things of the sort.
    So without further ado, here we go!

    I am a 23 year old male, who lives in the USA. I have a 4 ½ year old daughter (yes, I started young :p ). I live in an apartment with my girlfriend, daughter, and our puppy. I work a full-time job at my family’s company, and do not have a college degree. I have been programming windows applications since I was approximately 8 years old, and have never looked back. I tried to do the college thing, but it just wasn’t for me.

    My current forms of income are as follows:

    1. Full-time work
    2. Selling items on Amazon (not affiliate).
    3. CPA

    My current method for getting leads for CPA is as follows currently (in tree form):


    1. YouTube (Niches, and Micro Niches)
      1. Was using MVB to mass upload videos with my link in them. YouTube started mass-banning mass accounts within the last couple days and I have lost all of my accounts (over 650).
      2. Now I am using a more manual method, which I will show you guys in a little bit.
        1. Settings up videos on each manual account, and using TubeRank Jeet to find out popular keywords, and long tail keywords being used/searched for currently.
        2. If it’s a very saturated niche, I will boost them with Likes,Views(Ret. And Non-Ret.), and Subs.
    2. Creating Websites for Gaming Niches and Ranking Them on Bing/Yahoo/Google
      1. Currently have one website up. SEO is done for it, just building backlinks now

    I currently have one website up, and have finished on-site SEO, and am now working on off-site SEO.

    It is currently ranked on the following engine:
    Google: #57
    Bing: #4
    Yahoo!: #4

    What I did to create it (in order)
    1. Used Market Samurai to find a micro-niche keyword in the gaming realm.
    2. Purchased domain, and hosting
    3. Installed WordPress on the website.
      1. Installed plugins, found a theme, and got to work writing content.
      2. I made a total of 3 pages with the following titles all centered around the name keyword(s)
        1. “What’s It Do?”
          1. Consists of a hand written (approx. 375 words) explanation of what the tool does.
        2. “Download”
          1. Another brief overview of what the tool does, but 100% different from the “What’s It Do?” page.
          2. Added a YouTube video of the tool in action on the page (I made the video)
          3. Designed Download buttons to make it look cool.
          4. Put a viral locker on the page which requires the users to “Like” and “Share” the website on Facebook before being able to even see the survey.
        3. “Home”
          1. Obvious… Isn’t it? :p
        4. “Privacy Policy”
          1. Used a free generated copy from FreePrivacyPolicy.com (I think that’s the site).
    4. Drive traffic to the website via YouTube videos.

    Currently my earnings are not where I would like them to be. I am making anywhere from $5 - $80 a day. A snapshot of my earnings from the last couple days can be seen below. I recently switched back to CPAGrip from CPALead. I was getting better conversions on CPAGrip, but that doesn’t mean you should take my word for it. I’m very big on split testing, I am a “stats-nerd”, I guess you could call it.

    Thanks guys. I will be my best to keep this alive. I will not be stopping CPA anytime soon, so I should have this going for a while.
