    So I've been trying ppd for over a month now. I started off with sharecash, but later moved to cleanfiles after I heard it's a thousand times better than sharecash. I made $1.93 on sharecash in about a week or so, and $5.89 on cleanfiles as of yet. My niche is the game cracks/free codes and I promote my files on youtube. Also I have my self-hosted wordpress site under a subdomain, where I basically describe the file and put the main cleanfiles link.

    I get at best 10 impressions for one of my files, and less than 5 for the others a day. However, almost none of them convert. Example: puu.sh/41L7i.png (don't know why I'm not allowed to post this link)

    I tried tumblr, pinterest and other money-making schemes before but none of them seemed to work. All I earned is this $1.93 on sharecash, $5.89 on cleanfiles, ~$2.00 on adsense and ~$20 from selling bitcoins.

    I heard about CPA+youtube, but the whole cpa thing isn't quite clear to me. Can anyone explain how it works and what do I have to do to get accepted in a cpa network? Also, what are some good cpa networks to start off with?

    I'm not trying to sound like a deadbeat but I need some way to make money, so if anyone gives me some advice on how to advance, it would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks for reading.

    I am also just starting up with Youtube + PPD and it seems like we are using similar methods. However I have only made one video up to now because I am working on a web page, if you want to chat you can add me on skype.

    With PPD just stick with it, eventually your videos will explode and get alot of genuine views and that is when you will start earning more.

    How long have you been doing this OP? IM requires patience, so you just might need to push it more time and try various strategies, niches and etc.. The most important thing is not to give up and try different things until you find your goldmine!

    I've been doing this for more than a month, but the earnings are minimal. I also tried the weight-loss niche, but that didn't even get any impressions. Not sure what to try now ._.

    head to the Journeys section in here and start reading what people are doing in your method and niches. There are lots of successful journeys in there about the very same methods and niches. It is always best to learn from other people's experience

    IMO choose another niche because game cracks are available for free in torrent sites and usually when people download a game from torrent they get crack with it. Nobody will fill a survey to download a file which is already available for free... think about it.

    This has basically nothing to do with IM, but with your attitude to things - you are not persistent. Within a month you've tried several methods, but after all you had no chance to try & test it properly. Go back to the (for example) PPD and do it on 101%, try several niches, several channels of promoting, but stick on this method.

    If you'll don't make money today, then maybe tomorrow, or in a week, or in a month... or try the suggested McDonalds.
    All you have to do is to don't give up and try it over and over again. IM is not easy at all.

    You have done much better than you think - you have made $5.89 already witch cleanfiles, what's stopping you from scaling up? The hardest part for me is to find working method, once I do, I'm like a pitbull on a T-Bone ;)

    Indeed. You should think about switching off to other basis if you see no money at all. I suggest you to stay with PPD, play with landing page, testing-testing-testing and after all scaling up. Really, man, month isn't a term.

    Lol, whut? Are you serious? If you compare it to me although I'm kind of running things for about a week now, I'm only pathetically earning approx. $0.47 from adsense. I'm working on YT and CB. But obviously, I'm still new to this so, I can't definitely give up now, or anytime sooner or later. I'm planning to do this for a living. I got nothing else to catch me if I fail. What I really think that will work is, when you put your heart and soul to every little work that you're doing and I think you'll see a drastic change. I'm definitely not one to speak and boast right now but, I do believe that I will earn soon. As long as I'm putting in effort, and of course, to never give up. The difference between a successful and a failure man in life, it's that the successful one is never giving up until he achieves what he desires, but the man that failed, gave it up too soon. Just think about it. In IM, everything else you do is actually for the long term. You will reap your benefits, not today, not later, but probably a month time.

    Never give up, keep working on it, improvise and improvise. You'll get it for sure.

    Sincerely,
    DoT

    Don't give up OP. If are making money, even a low amount, you're on right direction. You just need improve some points and scale this up.
    Are you videos ranking for the keywords you desire? Also, make sure to choose a hot niche.

    So we can tell you the truth. You're probably a kid with get-rich-over-nigh mindset and that's why you suck. Money is not gonna fall from the sky and you wont get rich doing the same god damn thing everybody else is doing.

    As many have said here Buddy just don't give up or get discouraged. Listen there are those who've gone years without any substantial earnings but remained vigilant and it finally happen for them...persistence will always win the day my friend. Did you check out the cleanfiles forum? They're some really nice tutorial and guides you can check out there but the main thing as most have stated is to continue to take action.
    Continue testing,researching,experimenting,adjusting and scaling up those things that start to show some positive results.

    Here's a tip: It's easy to recognize the strengths of a given method or methods but hone in on the weak points and make adjustments there as well and you will be well on your way.

    Example:
    If you're making little to no money but are getting traffic, are getting hits but no conversions that means folks are interested but not enough to complete the survey for some reason, Find that reason...Is it a trust issue? Then breed some trust by making a video showing them what you claim you have you really do have even if you don't. Is it a quantity issue? and by that I mean do they like what you have but there's not enough of it there to make them go through the trouble of doing a survey? Gotta sell them on just the yard and when they least expect it give them the whole dam house! Always try to over deliver!
    Finally,and remember this always, there's nothing wrong with standing on the shoulders of giants to start out but you're objective should be to eventually stand firmly on your own and in return offering a shoulder to those on the way up the path from which you have already traveled.

    You're actually doing a lot better than most people who have been with PPD for a lot longer than a month.
    I can tell you that this stuff is not as easy as it seems, it takes a lot of hard work. Although, It does get easier the more you keep doing it.
    I've run into more failures than successes with PPD, but for me that's the best way to learn this stuff. You have to keep constantly tweaking things and finding out what works for you. Throw out anything that doesn't work and continue to tweak things until you find the perfect recipe. When you find that you're stuck making the same amount everyday, try scaling things up.

    Keep grinding away and don't give up so easily.
