    Ok guys,
    as some of you guys know from my Journey Theard. I'm in debt so I can't really spend a dime but I'll do it if its absolutely necessary
    So I created my own homepage about a month ago and also bought a domain Name. Next thing I bought was some traffic (I'm not sure what kind of traffic I'll look it up later and tell you guys)
    That's about it.

    So the thing is I like this idea of creating a YouTube video and getting sales from there sounds logic but is there a way to make it for free and if not what should I absolutely buy? Like things I 100% need or otherwise I'll fail?

    Could you name some things?
    Things and tools I can get for free and stuff I have to pay for. Something like a package I need.
    In the beginning I'm not looking to become rich but it would be more than good to make 1,500 $ this month (I'm not expecting it bout it would help me out a lot in my situation).
    Thanks guys

    First, it will take time. Nobody is going to tell you "you need this and this so you will make $x,xxx". You need to start testing different things.

    If you are trying to rank and earn from YT video you will need more things. Like comments, subs, likes, shares, retention views (= for YT ranking) and backlinks (= for Google ranking). There is lot of threads with useful info on this topic.

    Just remember that it will take time. Don't want to scare you or something. Only saying how it is :D It may be easy, it may be difficult (probably). It depends..

    I start out just like you man. A little over a year ago.

    Broke, nothing to invest at all, a convicted felon, busted ass laptop.

    I cant offer insight on youtube, except from what I can tell its a lot of work for a little money, but open yourself up to the entire business.

    Learning is most important right now. It wont happen soon, you're gonna have to bust ass for a long time with nothing to show for it.

    But keep at it and theres no way you wont succeed.

    First are you doing affiliate sales for a product from click bank or commission junction or are you doing your own product? Second, YouTube requires that you also invest in views, likes, comments, subscribers to gain legitimacy and trust to you and your channel. So put a plan together by looking at how others rank and bank videos and see if it is right for you. As you stated you have no money to invest and you like YouTube. I'd look at the Trends list and see what is hot for this month, day, week, etc. You can make a few high quality videos, and with YT SEO alone you can make sure you get the correct amount of views for free. If not, try some promotional methods for the HOT trends that seem to have a lot of buzz traffic. You would monetize this either with adsense on your videos or with something OF QUALITY. Your only goal is to make $1 per day from doing such methods, then scale it up once you have some money to $10 per day and so on. You will slowly find out that even if you are doing trends that SEEM over saturated you will still gain popularity if you either buy awesome viral results or by sucking up the views and subs that would randomly come and find your content worth it and appealing to them.

    TLDR? Make YT videos about hot trends, monetize it with Adsense or your own product and site back and scale up.

    Honestly i think the less you have in the beginning the more you have to rely on your own determination and ingenuity. It's easy to waste what little you have on software etc. But often it ends up being a distraction.. Eventually you want to scale things up and you will probably need software then.
    Having said that if you're ranking youtube videos, you will probably need to set aside a small budget for views and likes etc..

    You'll fail if you are not 150% focus on what you want to do. Try, fail, try , fail, fail and in the end you'll win. The secret is not to give up. Good luck.
