    Allright... So I'm Skytender. Great start so far. I know my name. Awesome!

    I am a complete ultra newb to the IM game so my apologizes out the gate for any lack of term knowledge. I expect you vets to beat me down but also provide valuable help along the way.

    My Goal is to make $3000 a month online to help get me away from my job and at home with my kids. To do this I need a constant $100 a day coming in 365 days a year.

    What I am Going To Use:
    • YouTube Account
    • CPA Network
    • CL (The name which must not be named) lol
    • Clickbank
    • WordPress site Hosted by the "Gator"
    • Go Daddy

    My Plan:
    I want to make quality informational videos on YouTube (not ripped - self made) that direct traffic to sites and or aff links both CPA and Clickbank.

    I want to make WP site in smaller subniches to also direct traffic to CPA (links, banners) & CB Products.

    I want to use my working Knowledge of CL to post ads to also drive traffic and sells. (this one might be out the door before it starts) Do to the eggshell walk we must do with them I might keep all traffic and info regarding this to myself.

    So Far:
    • I have 1 Video up on YouTube (have used BigBuddy's Service and have a top ranking video in my niche. Sweet! Good Start. Already seeing some natural hits... like 2 - 5 today already. These are staying on the video and clicking through. Thanks BB.
    • I have a CPA account up and running with banners on a single page sells site that takes traffic through a "how to" encouraging multiple sign-ups for CPA links. (so instead of 1 person signing up with 1 Site, They learn that the best way to do what they are wanting to do is to sign up with all my top offers) This turns a $1.50 into a possible $20.
    • I have a basic WP blog up in a different niche that once ranked I will add CB offers. This one is going to take some time but should prove to be the most stable. Planning on buying some articles from offers here on BHW to supplement. SEO plans are to keep it free and clean of aff links and banners till ranked. Use 50/50 mix of follow and no-follow backlinks and set up a web 2.0 pyramid as soon as I figure it out. :)

    As of Today I have made $15 so far. Woohoo!

    I will do my best to post updates at least once a week. That's all I can promise for now as I also work a 50 hour plus job. I also do not yet know how to post images of earnings and such while also being able to block info I don't want seen so help on that so I can prove earnings and such would be useful. Hope somebody out there gets anything from this journey as that is the point. Stay blessed ladies and gentleman.

    UPDATE:

    I got my sub niche site going. It's a simple blog and without submitting it I'm on page 5 in yahoo for my keyword, haven't showed up on google yet. Still working it and will be buying article from BHW supply soon to keep it posted with fresh content.

    Youtube has been good and bad. My first account was disabled because I stuff the description with keywords. (DON"T DO THIS) My new account is up and I'm on 1st page for one longtail keyword and around page 10 for shorter version. Not much activity on sales.

    Clickbank sales:
    8-14-2013 $16.61
    8-12-2013 $13.38
    My CPA is a bit better. I can't go into full detail but am running ads on Networks and am averaging $35 a day in actions. These are coming in through a simple one page website I made with several calls to action to different vendors. On Bing Network: I have spent $60 and made $40... not so great but am studying up on ad writing and still testing keywords. Plan of Action: Going to scale up my ad postings... try some different versions of ads using Microsoft publisher and photobucket to make clickable image ads to post. Plan on making 10 separate ads to rotate and ditch the ones not pulling clicks and rework/ make similar ads of one's that are. Overall not too bad of a start for a beginner. I will update again next Sunday with results from this week. Thanks for your support guys. Any ideas or thoughts on on things that might help me would be greatly appreciated!

    No offense but people need to stop spreading rumors like this.

    Youtube will NOT disable an account because you're keyword stuffing.
    Every single video I have ever made over the last couple of years, I've keyword stuffed and have not once had an account disabled.

    It is far more likely how you make / get your accounts, your video content, spamming, deceptive content, or the dozens of other really good reasons that YT has to disable an account.

    I can guarantee you that keyword stuffing is not the cause.

    Thanks Kinlee! I know I wont be really updating this thread but once a week for awhile but would love and look forward to any feedback you have as I go. :)

    Not trying to spread rumors and no offense taken. Just stating the facts of what happened to me. For clarification the channel was suspended but the main account stayed active. The account is over 4 years old and the video in question was legit in every way except for the keyword stuff in description. Maybe our definition is different here. What I did was like this (ex. keyword,keyword,keyword,keyword) along with the regular description w/ keywords that was more natural.

    Are you talking about simply cramming keywords in along with content or what I did?

    Would also love feedback on how you do it so maybe I can copy :) Thanks again for the feedback!

    Been a good week since my last update last Sunday...

    Ad Placement Stats:
    847 clicks
    182 actions taken
    $450.20 Earned

    You Tube Stats:
    66 Clicks
    22 actions
    $47.70 Earned

    Whats Working:
    Placing ads is obviously the most effective thing I got going right now. However I am scared because it's not stable. For one, if I don't place ads I don't make money. It's not passive, Placing ads is time consuming and bots are out there constantly trying to shut me down. It is what it is though. I'm placing 5 to 15 ads a day on a site that I will not mention but you know it :) I've spent a total of $150 doing this so far so I'm in the green.

    I have 4 YT videos out there. 2 Are ranked on first page for long tail keywords and 2 are slowly climbing the ranks. These clicks are more targeted and the income is passive so I like it.

    Plan of Action:
    Going to scale scale scale up. Plan to invest more into posting ads to increase the amount and locations I can post. Still searching for a way to outsource this but with no luck. I want to post 13 to 30 a day but would eventually like to not have to post at all, either leaving it up to some one else or having YT making me all my cash.

    Also plan to build more videos this week. I want to put up 2 - 4 more. I'm using a simple free screen capture website and making slide presentations. Going to build at least one or two more for my main money site and also a couple for some new offers.

    CLICKBANK:
    Has been a bust for me this week. I have spent $50 in Bing ads and have only 3 order impressions with no sells. Think I'm going to have to update ads, keywords and offers... or just ditch it completely and focus on whats working right now as my time is precious. Not sure yet what to do. I'll make a decision on it this week.

    Overall:
    So far so good. I think I'm about half way to my goal. I won't be satisfied though until the money coming in is 80% passive. Thinking YT is going to be my focus going forward, however, I can't stop doing what's bringing in the bucks. I'll milk it for all I can at the moment.

    Thanks for reading and please feel free to give me your thoughts or suggestions. I value everyone's feedback. Best of luck out there. Stay blessed!

    Hate to be "that guy" but this topic is now dead... GOAL REACHED!

    I have found a way to outsource my listings and still making extra flow from YT videos which a is cherry on top. Just goes to show you that anybody can make money online... :)

    I'm too busy to really do a good "journey" anyways... guess it's no fun to watch if it's only updated once a week.

    Mods feel free to clean this up if needed as I think I was the only one really posting here anyway... Thanks Guys!
