Please bare with me as this post is quite long. Last week, I was trying out various different new methods which I thought would work. This one is one of them. The main idea around it is extremely simple, yet, it can bring huge returns on investments. (Yes, you need money to do this method!). A $50 investment managed to generate back over $300 in profits, and this was 2 days work. $300 for 2 days work may not be a lot for some of you guys, but for some people in the world, this money is a lot and they will be really pleased with it. I got this method from another forum so if anyone needs any reference, PM me. This method revolves around Youtube. You definitely must be someone patient who won't mind making mistakes a few times but with patience, comes success and this method takes a hell of a lot of patience, determination and just pure dedication. Youtube is a huge place and there are thousands of people uploading videos, not knowing that their video can make easy money if they monetized it well. Well, that's where YOU come in. This method involves you finding a pretty popular video that is NOT being monetized by the user. These may be hard to find but the whole process becomes easier the more you try. There are thousands of people with great videos but they simply don't monetize it because either: a) They don't know how to b) They only uploaded the video to get views and nothing else c) They don't have the time d) They don't care For example, if you have a website promoting a certain movie and then you have a content locker on top of it.. then you would want to find a video on Youtube related to your website? No point finding a video about Weight loss if your website is related to gaming. Find a video on Youtube which is related to your niche. Once you have done this, click their profile link to get to their channel. Make sure the uploader of the video isn't TOO popular because he probably won't care about your proposal. Make sure the uploader is someone fairly new to Youtube. Once you are on their channel, contact the owner of the channel and offer them money for your link to be placed in their video description along with an annotation in the video for a few seconds. This is a great way to make money with Youtube. Most the methods out there require you to load up Movie Maker, create a video, add a link in description, upload the video to hundreds of accounts and so on. That's just very long work. This cancels all that out. Once the uploader agrees to your proposal, you have basically just saved money! How? Well.. with uploading videos yourself, you would need to work hard and possibly spend money to promote the video and drive traffic to it. With this, you get a link on a video which is already driving traffic on autopilot. You don't need to do anything. The great thing about this is that there are tons of videos in different niches. Weight loss, latest movies, latest music, latest file cracks, latest celebrity gossip, latest sex tapes and so on. The possibilities are endless. The great thing is that most Youtubers are not Internet Gurus or Internet Marketers. They are just there to upload videos, get some views and just build a good relation with other users around the world. Most of them don't know that they can make money monetizing their own videos. This makes your work unique. You don't do much work at all. Just message them and that is it. No uploading videos, no tagging videos, no working hard driving traffic. It's already done for you. You simply message the person and offer them some money for your link to be shown in their description of the video. Most Youtube users wouldn't even believe the fact that someone else is offering to pay for them to put a link in their video description. So anything you offer them would work - but try to make it professional. Imagine you uploading a video of your friend tripping up and falling on his back? You only posted the video for fun, nothing else. And then next day someone offers you money to place a link in the description? You would most likely accept, won't you? All the other user would need to do is copy and paste a link, that's it. This is why the success rate is pretty high. To calculate how much you should offer them, check their videos and the comments/likes and so on. Check if the views are all coming from different places - not shitty mobile views. Have a rough idea in your mind and try to calculate the chances of you making your money back. Id say anywhere between $10-20 works well for most Youtube users. Sometimes, they would ask for more. Its completely up to you if you want to offer more. You need to calculate the risk of it failing. And the great thing is, its permanent. Although you don't know if the Youtube user would remove the video ever, it still gets you a lot of clicks as the link would literally be in the description for as long as the video is live. If you found a video which gets 2000 views daily, and has a CTR of roughly 10%.. then this is good. This means only 200 people will click your link. And if the conversion rate on your website was 1-2%, you would STILL be making some money. (Depending on what you are promoting and how much you get for it.) However, you would always get a better CTR rate if you ask the user to also add an annotation/pause mark in the video. If you don't have any money, then you could try asking the user for a free 1 day trial or something to "experiment" and test out the response. Sometimes they say yes, but mostly they would deny. It all depends on how you write and persuade them. Always pick videos which are "hot". Don't pick videos which has old views. Pick videos which are constantly getting views and make sure its not being monetized at all. So please, PLEASE try this method. I don't make money if you try it but I want you guys to try it. There are ways of scaling this. You can use bots to message a group of people and so on. There are endless ways. But please don't just sit there thinking this is too long, or thinking that this isn't for you. It is. Just try. Here are some motivational points to help you get up, get together and make some money doing something pure simple. Making money can be done by everyone. Yet, most people don't try - because they are simply afraid. Afraid that they will fail. In some cases, yes, you will fail - but that is the whole fun. Getting back up, being optimistic and learning from your mistakes is the first step to becoming a successful Internet Marketer. There are times when you read countless eBooks, read tons of posts and still yet in the end you do nothing. Something stops you. Something holds you back. Or there could have been a time where you worked so hard, and the end result was nothing. You worked for days, planning, and working really hard but you made no money. So whenever you see a post like this, you always think back to your failure and this always holds you back. If you fall into both these categories then let me tell you something. a) Failures are a core essential towards money making. I made hundreds of failures. Lost thousands and thousands of dollars, but this did not stop me. There are times when you fail and you just feel like an ultimate loser. You can't make money. Others can, but you can't. You wonder why and you never get an answer or a solution. For life, you will always be "the one that failed". You are upset, but you can't do anything about it. You read great guides and eBooks with great teachings and tutorials yet you always fail. This then leads to a point where you read another great post but you quit reading halfway - because you think back to the times you failed, and you assume you will fail again. You give in to your brain. You don't take control. You just quit reading and carry on "dreaming" that one day you will be successful. Yet that day never comes because you keep holding yourself back. b) Making a mistake is so much fun. Yeah, sounds strange but trust me. Once you manage to find out why you made the mistake, chances are - it WONT happen again. Thats the great thing about them. You make them once but then they never come back for again. Making mistakes is great because you find out where you're going wrong and it gives you more ideas and plans to find alternative ways. So if you are reading this right now, STILL thinking "I can't do this. Leith's post is good but I simply can't do it" - then you sir, are not trying hard enough. I recommend you read this post again. Because if you believe you can do it, you can. I didnt think I could make money online. But look at me now.. There are hundreds of people making money / losing money each day. Only the best of those would keep going till the very end. The sky is the limit. If one thing doesn't work, twist it around, bend it, and add your own ideas. Because ones "useless method" is anothers "working method". Just work hard and you will succeed. If you've read my other posts, then you will know that I love motivation people. I don't understand why some people give up. Don't let your inner beliefs take over. I strongly believe anyone can make money - heck, even my 12 year old brother. Please, just don't give in. Just keep trying. You failed? AWESOME! Now try again.
