This method is a Youtube technique which is simple to pull off and can make you potentially thousands of $$$ without getting banned. You might actually get a good rep with the Youtube community, which means for some of us, no more uploading lesbian kiss scenes . The idea is simple: Upload songs from a soundtrack of a recent movie and use them to drive views to a "special" CPA landing page. OK, so you might ask, how do we get songs from a soundtrack that hasn't been publicly released yet? So here's the method: 1. Pick a Movie Pick something that you think people will like. No point in wasting time with Rambo 14 or whichever one they're on, people are through with that junk. Sequels are a good way to go, though, because sometimes they borrow songs from their prequels, and you can just use the prequel's soundtrack and upload it saying that it in fact belongs to the sequel. Oh, and make sure that the movie has been out in cinemas recently, i.e. 1 or 2 days, a week tops. 2. Find out which songs are on the soundtrack The easiest (and funnest) way to do this is to go see the movie with a pen&paper and make a note of the lyrics of every song, especially beginning and end credits (those are the ones people tend to notice most - eg. Moby's "extreme ways" only got popular when used for end credits of Bourne Identity). Then when you get back home google it. Heck, you can even bring a mic into the theatre. The volume's so loud in cinemas that as long as you have Wavepad or a similar cheap editing software you should be able to weed any background noise out and come back with a decent-quality audio file. Alternately, you can either start Yahoo questions threads saying something like "I really like the song in the end credits of [movie]. Can anyone tell me what it is?" etc etc. You get the idea. There are also specialist forums like Code: http://soundtracks.tuneforums.com/ where you can ask these questions. Download the MP3 OK, so now you know which songs to download, or you have them recorded on your MP3 recording mic thing. The latter case works particularly well for custom-made soundtracks, e.g. Hans Zimmer's work in "The Gladiator". The reason for this is that directors/sound editors tend to put more focus on the music when they paid bucketloads for it. Even if there are characters speaking over it for a few seconds, no one will mind. If you don't have the song recorded or if you know the name of the song and only got a small clip on your recorder (also frequent, e.g. Bobby Womack's 110th street in "American Gangster"), then you can download the song from Youtube. Just search for the title of the song in Youtube and then download the flv file using Code: www.downloadyoutubevideos.com , You can also download the vid from limewire. If you're in my programming course, use the updown.vb class in PurpleX to do this for you as it will be much faster (and ad-free). Convert FLV to MP3 Use ffmpeg or a similar tool. Find a nice picture related to the movie For example, Code: http://www.impawards.com/2005/posters/batman_begins_ver6.jpg Import the MP3 file and Picture into Windows Movie Maker Set the MP3 file as the soundtrack and drag picture onto scene so that it shows for the entire clip. Then put some text in a highly-readable font (i.e. large, sans-serif, and preferably monospace - courier new is great for this) saying something like "to download the mp3 visit www.[yourwebsite].com Export video as wmv. Create landing page You need a content-protection gateway with a ZIP/Email submit. Basically, just have some nicely-formatted text in a light BG color at the top of the page saying "The content you have requested was created by one of our free members. To access it, please enter your [whatever CPA requires]". Upload video Make sure you include good keywords, including the title of the movie and any prequels, actors, director, and any other famous people involved with it. If it's a custom-made soundtrack make sure you include the name of the composer! The title should be in the format "[movie] soundtrack: [song name]" If you don't know the song name (e.g. custom soundtrack and you recorded it in the cinema) then just describe the scene where the song shows up , in a few words, e.g. "Bridge of Khazad-Dum" (from The Fellowship of the Ring). [OPTIONAL] Increase views/ratings/favorites Tubeincreaser and Tubeautomator can do this for you. If you're in my programming class we may go over how to do this over a smaller scale (i.e. less than 10000 views/500 ratings/500 favs). [OPTIONAL] Submit the same video with different pictures as a video response to similar soundtracks or soundtracks of any Prequels This doesn't always work, but if you genuinely have the soundtrack of a movie that's just been released I can't see why anyone would refuse a video response from you. That's all, folks. If you guys like this method then maybe I'll post my Metallica method, which requires more work, but is three times the fun and ten times the profit.
