    Hi there,

    Today is the first day that I launch my new movie streaming website using gateway from CPA Lead to lock the content. If people want to watch the movie, they have to fill in the survey.

    Yes, I made $38 from CPA today. That should be good, isn't it? But it's not. Because I spend $60 on Adwords to drive traffic to my site. So I get loss $22.
    I stop my campaign right now because I don't want to lose more money.

    I would like to know if there is any free way to drive traffic to my movie site. I think it's hard to write articles about free movies online or something like that. How about social bookmarking or directory submission? Don't know if it will help driving traffic to my site?

    Any word of wisdom would be greatly appreciated.

    Create some decent videos and submit them to those sites. Give them an incentive if you have to.

    Any sample would be greatly appreciated.
    Sorry for the dumb question.

    In your case, your niche would be watching movies online free. So go to youtube, or any other video site, download the trailer of the movie you want to promo, upload to tubemogul (website that allows you to distribute video content to multiple video sites so you don't have to upload individually to each site), throw a link to your movie site in the description box. Repeat this multiple times with different trailers for each movie, then do the same for a lot of movies and sit back and watch the traffic flow in.

    Yea.... it's really that easy..

    Thanks Exfilius for reply.
    Is there any website that tells us about upcoming movie?
    Then, how can we find upcoming movie trailer?
    I want to be the first one who post upcoming movie trailer.
    Can we search from google?

    Thanks,

    Do some research man.. nobody is gonna tell you where you can find a movie site when all you have to do is go to google and type in "Upcoming movie websites"

    ..Seriously don't be so lazy.

    You can watermark a popular movie (and A BIG WATERMARK) and tell something like" you can watch full clean movie on ---yours_site---" and upload it to torrent sites. After people download it, they will go to yours site to watch unwatermaked movie...

    When running sites like this, you've got a number of ways to generate traffic. Video marketing is quite popular, so is SEO, one of the best ways to drive quick traffic, would be to use google trends and digg.com to rank highly for the keywords. :)

    Yes youtube is still working. As mentioned above, with your website, you just need to upload movies trailers to tubemogul.

    This is a great way to make a little spare spending money. I suggest that you also get some ebooks off of this forum about PPC. That is a beast. PPC will rape you and take everything you have if you do not know what you are doing.

    Then after you learn about PPC since you are already in some cpa networks, create a top 3 bussiness op pages and promote with ppc, use a lot of keywords and watch your bidding. Split test with different offers, colors, and everything else.

    Also, use aweber or another form to generate mailing lists with your ppc advertising. Do not pay for clicks without capturing their emails. Trust me the money is in the list.

    In my opinion if you are going to start with PPC you need to do free trial cc submits that pay +$20 per sign up.

    Hope that helps.
