    Socialhits Journey
    Hi guys, I first started CPA with Instagram but after getting multiple accounts banned and not having a viable method for phone verification I decided to look at other methods. I decided to look into YouTube and uploaded my first video on 13th October. This was getting very few conversions with only a couple every few days or so. On the 31st of October I decided to create 2 new videos, these had slightly better interest than the first and I started to get a couple of conversions every day. On Nov 3rd I uploaded another video and my earnings improved marginally. Over the last few days my earnings have increased a fair bit. Below is a screenshot of my OGAds earnings from uploading my recent videos.

    I intend to continue adding more videos to hopefully further increase my earnings. However all of my current videos are blackhat niches and so I am currently working on a whitehat niche which involves creating a website since I believe this will have more longevity. As I'm a complete noob at web design etc. and due to IRL stuff in the next few weeks this could take some time but will hopefully be set up by the end of the month.

    I will try to update here every day or so, if anyone can offer any tips etc. then they'd be greatly appreciated and I will also try my best to help anyone with any questions.

    Thanks man, I don't really promote them, I just add some likes and views and leave them. I put my landing page in the description with the video telling them to look for it there.

    So yesterday wasn't as great as the previous 2 days, had a good start early on but then the clicks/conversions slowed down a fair bit. Still made over $3 though which isn't too bad imo for now. Obviously there is much improvement to be had. I've bought a months hosting and a cheap domain for $0.96 which I intend to create my new site on, I have 0 experience with wordpress so this could take some time! After that's all set up I'll buy some better hosting and also the domain name I intend to use. Then hopefully start making some better money!

    Yesterdays earnings:

    I'm also around $10 away from my first OGAds cash out :)

    All the best.
    What type of videos do you make?
    What do you promote in the CPA links?

    My videos are awful, I should've put much more effort into them, they're just a single image and then text telling the viewer to look at the link in the description. I can't tell you what I promote without giving my niche away I'm afraid.

    No all of my videos are my own.

    Thanks guys!

    Small update: Today has been really weird, I've had a fair amount of clicks so far but only 10% conversions. Seems like the problem might be that a fair bit of my traffic today has been desktop based rather than mobile, and the OGAds desktop offers are awful.

    So yesterday didn't end to awfully after the bad start:
    [​IMG]
    A higher conversion rate would have been nicer but oh well, I suppose if a desktop offer earns more then having a lower % conversion isn't too bad. Probably not going to upload any more YouTube vids as I'm very bust IRL at the moment and from Tuesday will be having about a week off. I've bought my domain and started setting up my wordpress site, but as this is my first time using it it's probably going to be a slow process. I have also decided that on my site I'm going to download a plugin that detects mobile devices and then use OGAds for any mobile clicks and then another network for desktop traffic. I've just signed up to CPAGrip as I'll test that out first, however they've limited my offers and so I've contacted them to try and 'unlock' the full amount of available offers.

    Over the next few days I'm mainly going to be working on the site, although may possibly upload another video if I find time.

    Over $50 Earnings!
    Friday and Saturday were both average days with $3-4 each day, however on Saturday I decided to try a different network to try and get better conversions for my desktop traffic. I used Adscend Media as they'd had good reviews on one of my landing pages however I got 51 clicks and only 2 conversions totalling $0.74 which was very disappointing considering that would've probably been around $4 on OGAds.

    One of my niches landing pages (the one I changed to Adscend) had over 188 pageviews yesterday which is the most I've ever had so hopefully today will be a very good day since I've changed the locker back to OGAds. But we shall see.

    My domain has finally changed nameservers but for some reason when i go to the domain it automatically redirects back to the old domain I was using to test things on so I'm going to have to try and sort that out today and then can hopefully get back to designing and building the site.

    Hi, I'm following you on this journey. I tried instagram and cpa with ogads, but no success, I personally think that instagram method is dead and it takes a lot of effort for something that might not turn into profit based on my experience (account phone verification, following people, licences for bots, hosting for site, domain, landing pages, promotion etc.).
    I'm just wondering, since majority of YouTube traffic is desktop (maybe I'm wrong), do you go for stuff like gaming, free stuff, apps since they only work on mobile or you make your landing pages and then choose niche.

    Instagram can work you just need to be very patient and cautious due to the high ban rate. I'd say about 1 third of my traffic is desktop based, I actually just looked for this months traffic for you:
    [​IMG]

    Thats why I was looking for a network that has both good conversion rates for mobile and desktop. But at least when desktop offers do convert they're often worth over $1. My niche is not device specific my landing pages are all blogger pages (probably could've spent a little to use actual hosting but I'm a cheapskate. My LPs and videos are all in the same niche but with slight differences between them.

    Thank you!

    I'm having them same issue as you, OP. I'm with OGAds but 70% of my traffic is desktop based, so the conversion rate is really low (3-5%). I'm looking for new network for my desktop visitors too. I'm thinking about CPAGrip and Blue Track Media. (You can leave CPALead out of your mind because I've tried, freaking awful conversion).
    Do you have any luck asking your account manager at CPAGrip to fully unlock your offer ?

    Ah if you find somewhere that has a decent conversion rate then late me know - pm me your skype? On CPAGrip I just emailed John and he unlocked my offers for me, I might trial them later today/tomorrow.
