    Yo yo. What's up guys & gals. I'm back with another journey thread that I'm hoping would be interesting to some of you out there.

    In my last journey thread - http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...-50-day-fiverr-youtube-clickbank-lets-do.html
    Two out of Three of my youtube videos were removed because of some views that I bought (shit blows, but w.e). And before that, my clickbank earnings took a hit for the worst, and went downhill.

    Before the videos were deleted, I bought an SEO package for one video, then had to change the details for the next, and had to completely ask for a refund at the end of the whole ordeal. Now, I'm sitting here with one video thats not really pulling in any sales, with shitty traffic (mainly people on their phones who click the link), and a limited amount of money to pull through with.

    It was because of one thread that got me back into Clickbank, zerofoxtrot. Thanks man.
    And it's because of one thread (and this shit happening with YT +CB), thats gotten me back into PPD, kinlee. Thanks again.

    So, I'm hoping that with a miracle, smart work, and some luck, I can pull through with this journey.

    The main goal here isn't necessarily to make some money. It's mainly to see if this works like I hope it will, and hopefully for me to make some money so I can continue with my CB journey (that I put on hold for now, because I WILL, REACH MY GOAL).
    A few days ago, I was browsing a website that I visit often, and stumbled across a link that got me thinking, and changed my whole idea about how to go through with this.

    You see, I wanted to try viral marketing like kinlee did, before I even found this lovely forum. Only problem; didn't know how to do it/how to do it the right way.

    BUT NOW, I think I found the right way, at least I hope so.

    Now for the game plan
    On the site that I found, I'll be copying what he/she did, but perfecting it. I already had the idea at the time that I wanted to create a viral ppd site, or semi-viral site with sustaining traffic. Just seemed like it be the easiest thing to do to get some money rolling in. I didnt wanna go the normal route, and upload a ton of youtube videos with saturated niches.

    Anyway, I was checking some of the stats that the site had, and it surprisingly seems to be doing well on its own, and I'm sure whoever owns the site is making some decent money.

    I won't be revealing too much information about what I'll be doing, but you should already have a general idea since I mentioned viral marketing...

    What I can tell you is, I WONT be doing any SEO, Paid Advertising, Spamming, Etc... What I WILL be doing is using YouTube videos as the start up traffic, and letting it continue on from there. I might post a new video 2 or 3 times for each niche, once a week or two weeks. I'll be using a few youtube accounts so just incase any videos are deleted, I won't take that much of a hit.

    So with that said, lets get on with the To Do List.

    To Do List
    I've already creating the website template, and tested everything on Chrome, FireFox, Opera, and Internet Explorer to be sure its compatible, and works.

    - Register at a CPA Network (one thats not detectable by AdBlock, still need to find one)
    - Buy Domain & Hosting
    - Write Article For Website
    - Upload YouTube Video(s) To Drive Traffic To Page
    - Rinse and Repeat With 2 or 4 More Niches
    - Profit???

    Time Frame
    I'm giving myself 3 Months to get 3 or 5 pages up, with different niches driving traffic to them. So this is either a win it or lose it deal.
    My Target Date: September 30th, 2014

    I'll be working on this every time I can, but I also have a program that I'm coding and will be releasing in the next month or so hopefully. So we'll see how much progress I make.

    And there you have it. I'm mainly testing this to see how the results go. And If they look promising/workout like I hope, or fail completely, then I will have completed my journey. Wish me luck guys <3

    Alright, so its been a few hours and I've been up since 3AM. Its now 10AM. I went for a jog earlier, and I'm hoping I can manage to stay awake for a bit :p
    Trying to reset my sleep schedule so I can go to bed early and wake up early has been a struggle lol.

    I wrote up a quick article to place in the main body of the webpage. I wouldn't even call it an article really. More like a 300 word description. But it works, so thats one thing done from my check list.

    Also, went ahead and bought a new domain and hosting.
    The domain cost me: $10.80
    The Hosting: $2.97 (Found a coupon for half off ;))

    And I literally JUST BOUGHT the domain, and set the DNS's. And already its showing the site :D This is awesome. Usually takes a few hours to a day most times.
    Gonna upload everything in a second, and make sure shits all nice and pretty.

    All thats left to do now is to find a good CPA network to use, and get some videos up that'll bring in traffic.

    Mirror sites? o_O
    And I was actually thinking of trying CPA Grip a little while ago.

    Alright so a few things happened over the past couple of days, I got some bad news, and good news.
    Why don't we start off with the bad news first?

    BAD NEWS
    [​IMG]Sparky
    The first page that I had up, lets just name him Sparky for now. I uploaded about 3 videos that were directly related to it. When I chose the videos, that looked like they were already doing pretty good in YouTube, they had only been uploaded about 2 - 4 days ago, and each has well over 5K views. So I thought, this should be pretty good. I downloaded them, and then uploaded them with a link to sparky in the description. I added some annotations as well. Left them a lone for a few days, and they weren't gaining as many views as I thought.I ended up deleting them, and putting sparky on hold for a bit.But In that between time, I thought about another niche that seemed decently popular, and I remember making$5 off of it in one day, so I figured this could work out. (Boy was I wrong). It had to do with a new TV show that was gonna premiere last week with a a new season. I don't care about giving this niche away because its pretty much dead to me. I did the same thing for sparky, found some decently popular vids, and re-uploaded them pointed towards this new page. But this time, I had gotten even less traffic for these videos than I did for the ones I uploaded for sparky. I didn't take into consideration the popularity of the TV show and the competition that was already on YouTube for it. So i pretty much just said bummer, then deleted those videos too... Moral of this side story: I'm no longer gonna be using YouTube videos to send traffic to my pages if it isn't for a "legit"niche that could send in continuous traffic. And since the show is already started, its already too late to profit off it like I wanted too.

    GOOD NEWS
    Fast forward a little bit to yesterday. I was up all night again (like usual) but around 4am, I was literally stuck on what to do. I felt really sad/annoyed because I thought it was over, and I would fail this journey. Basically I felt like giving up, but a little bit of me was still holding on and trying. I ended up going on the site that I visit frequently(the same one where I found this dude's website, that sparked this whole journey), and I saw another one of his pages, except this one different. I ended up checking the stats for it, and it was getting A HELL OF A LOT MORE attention than the last page of his that I saw. It was way more viral. And with all that attention, I knew the dude must of been banking some good cash.This sparked an idea in my head, and I wasn't instantly feeling better. I though if this niche is so popular, then I'll just use the same one. I'm not gonna copy it exactly, but I'll use something very similar to it. (I'm not a copycatter).


    [​IMG] Wubbles
    That's how Wubbles was created.So I ended up writing down some ideas for a new page. But before I could get started, I needed to figure out a way to get a good amount of start up traffic. YouTube wouldn't work for this, so I thought about buying some facebook posts on popular pages. I went on the hunt, and found some good ones, but I only got in contact with 2 people. The first one showed me stats of the clicks, and it gave me a lot of detail. But it backfired, because most of the traffic was mobile people. So I had to re-do my template, and fix some scripts so there were compatible. I did this for sparky, because I figured since I already got a page ready to go, I might as well send traffic to it first...I haven't bought any posts yet, but I'm still talking to the dude. So I'll have more info on sparky later.


    [​IMG]Pizza​
    The other day, I was looking for some keywords, because I was thinking of ranking a YouTube video on google and youtube for this new niche.Thus, pizza was born. (thought of that name, since im eating pizza right now lol)I already made a video for pizza, and have it uploaded on youtube. I sunt a few views to it, and to my surprise I already made one conversion lol. I made $0.28 two days ago. So that proves its already gonna work. I just need to get the video ranked on google, and a little higher on youtube, then I'll just sit back and watch it roll.The only thing is this one has a different template compared to Sparky and Wubbles, so I'll leave it alone for now.But if I start getting a lot of mobile traffic later on, then I'll re-do the template a little bit.
    And thats it for this update. Pretty much to sum this up...

    - I have 3 sites, was gonna have 4, but one died off.
    - Had to redo the template on one, because of the posts I was gonna by (mainly mobile traffic)
    - Found someone I'm interested in buying posts from (around ~300+ clicks/day)
    - Made $0.28 from Pizza.So, until then guys. More updates later.

    For some reason the new lines I added to the post, got removed, and the spacing was fucked up... so if it seems like there should be a space between words or w.e then its not my fault.

    Different thread + different monetization strategy + same person / same mindset = same result.

    I can sugarcoat things but I can't bs you bro. And there is this saying in marketing that rings true in 90+% of these journey threads.

    That saying is, "hobby efforts leads to hobby results".

    For as long as you've been on this forum, marketing has always been a hobby for you. Not a business.

    And for that reason I expect this thread to be no different than your last. This is the 1st page of your new journey and I already see you writing the word "fail".
    You may have the potential to make a lot of money (you do), but you just don't have the right reasons or motivation.

    What I personally see happening - You'll start off strong. Get a few videos uploaded just to show us you're "serious".

    Then a video will get banned here, another one there, and you'll soon realize you're not running from Clickbank... you're running from yourself.
    You'll feel lost, depressed and confused. The novelty will wear off again. And you'll start updating this thread twice a month if we're lucky.

    I'm certainly not psychic. But there is a history here that you're up against.

    And those who fail to learn from their history are doomed to repeat it.

    I was going to post this a few days ago but told myself "I'll wait till he starts breaking". And I do see you trying to be positive, but you need to make
    a decision. You're either going to treat this as a hobby or a business. It doesn't matter to me but you should definitely be clear about your goals.
    And you can make all the excuses in the world. That you're broke. That videos keep getting deleted etc etc.

    Just keep in mind, somewhere out there there's a marketer with an eviction notice on his door. A man with bills piling up on his kitchen table rather
    than food. And that guy won't find 1 excuse, 1 reason, 1 anything to not reach his goals.

    He will drop the word "fail" from his vocabulary.

    The question is, can you do the same? :squint:


    Good luck on your journey old friend.
