Some points on YT: video CTR tends to be low usually 1/150 , it's one of the biggest sources of sh%t traffic in operation, so traffic is lazy, distracted, generally younger, and not out to buy anything right away. Conversion on cpa is probably 1/25 if the niche is hot. Math's simple, you'll need about 3750 unique views to convert a good cpa offer (making $1.50 on average). If your vid's hot and you rack up 100,000 natural views (over 3000 views a day over a month), you'll make about $27. Now ask yourself what kind of videos get that kind of traffic on YT and can you produce that kind consistently. I try to tell it like it is as a lot of noobs get suckered into this game by stories of striking it rich. Usually the story tellers fall into two camps. They're either BSing (who knows why but I ain't judging) or they caught a lucky streak that day. Very few do it on a consistent basis. If you see a too good to be true story always ask for proof or take it with a grain of salt. Numbers never lie.
