    Hello BHW,

    First thread here. I'm 18 years old and got into IM 2 months ago and since then I have absorbed a TON of information. Really have to thank everyone on these forums for sharing their knowledge (for free), you're all lovely people and I really look up to you:). So I'm going to share what I've done since I started IM, I'd really appreciate you reading:

    To start off my journey, I realized working your way around domains and building websites is core to being successful in IM. So I bought a domain and worked with WordPress and SEO for a while. I realized after two weeks that my website was in completely the wrong niche ("CV/Resume Review Niche"). I knew nothing about keyword research etc. and of course there was insane competition especially for a noob like me in a niche like that... So I abandoned it and moved on. It was well worth it though as I learned a lot of lessons from the experience. And I got like 1 visitor every day from India which was cool! At least now I can create a professional looking website:cool:.

    Next, I decided to try my hands in E-mail marketing - just building a list and sending them click-bank offers. Well, to build my list I tried spamming Facebook for a while with a link to my landing/squeeze page(Diabetes niche). After hours of work all I got was 1 opt-in. I tried sending emails to random email lists I dl'ed online then google blocked my IP lol... so I moved on. I also tried to spam facebook pages (game niche) with related CPA offers... got 100 hops but 0 purchases (which I found weird as how much more targeted can you be?!)

    NOW: I decided to try my hands in PPD + YouTube. I uploaded videos in the game hacks niche (and another niche which I won't be sharing--sorry lol). Now as I'm sure you can imagine, the game hacks niche is overwhelmed with people using Mass Video Blaster and noobs like me. However, the other "secret" niche began getting some downloads (with some help from me using EnhanceViews and Addmefast) and I made 25$ just from that niche in one day! I made 5$ overall with the game hacks niche. The money only really started to come in yesterday (honestly if you're reading this and haven't made your first buck yet it's an amaaazing feeling to make money online!).

    My happiness did not last very long. Today I woke up with two of my accounts banned, and a couple of videos (I only had around 12 up) banned. It was so devastating, I guess people flagged my videos. I liked the YT+PPD method, but it isn't scaleable whatsoever. It just seems like a *you upload ===> YouTube deletes* cycle. Too saturated, too time-consuming, no auto-pilot. So I guess I'll move on.

    But I am out of ideas to try. It seems that with Google updates there just doesn't seem to me like there's any space left for me. I'm very good with YouTube SEO, video creation, I'm creative, and I work hard. Oh and I have free time. I've just lost direction. I suppose a partially created this thread to re-motivate myself. I really need some input from someone that's had more experience than me, to actually read what I've done so far and give me some suggestions on where to move on. Or maybe an idea on improving my YT+PPD method which seemed to be working for me...?

    I really hope I'm not being that annoying noob that's too lazy to find resources and wants to be spoonfed... I really am a hard-worker and if anyone can put me back in the right direction I'd be indebted.:)

    Thank you for reading

    Suggestions:
    1) Don't bump a thread twice a day, it's against the rules.
    2) Choose any method and stick with it. If YT + PPD made you money, I'd stick with it. Yes, accs get deleted, but you can choose a different niche, or just spam your way and don't care about accs, but you'll need money to invest. If you go this way, all you need to worry about is earning more than spending.
    3) Stop quiting, work hard and be consistent.

    Good luck!

    I suggest you keep trying. The one reason why people fail is that they give up too early. Keep pushing forward and where there is ways to automate, do it. It pays off in the end and yes you are right in that making money online is fun. I can only suggest keep pushing forward, otherwise you join the statistic of 95% of people that try, fail. I've failed many times....to get back up and learn from your mistakes, will make you stronger, smarter and richer.

    thanks for your advice... would you be able to tell me ways to build on my slight success with YouTube+PPD? Maybe a way to automate it?

    Although I am not a Youtube + PPD method user, what I would do is be more creative. Create a landing page for your ppd and make it look legitimate. Then on your youtube video, generate traffic to your ppd landing page. That way you are not breaking any TOS and your videos will not get deleted. Then once you stabilize that, figure ways to get traffic. Like I said though, that's not my market so I can't really say what works and what doesn't. That's just how I would approach it.

    The problem is that even if I create a landing page, competitors or even youtubers will flag my videos this getting them deleted. There is no stability and I wish I can find a way to make the videos stay up.

    You made money with youtube+PPD, stick with that. Getting accounts banned is the name of the game. Spend a few bucks on private proxies and some PVA accounts and upload videos to them en masse. Learn to use imacros to automate large parts of the process.

    Thank you for the reply. I started a trial with Mass Video Blaster and I will see if that works out for me. Also, do you think that using public proxies would get my accounts banned?
