Hello everyone! It's my first time post on here, but I've been reading the heck out of the forums for quite a while now. Finally figured it was time to jump into the ring and get rid of having a boss! Decided to go the normal route of having youtube + PPD. Will start with one account/video and work my way up. I have many challenges in front of me, considering I have ZERO start up cash money. So, I have to start a bit smaller to get the seed money for the real master plan. I GIVE PROPS TO SAIYAN AND HIS THREAD OF AWESOMETASTICNESS! Search for his post entitled "Noob's way of making 5-10 dollars a day " here on the 'My Journey Discussions' forum. Read through the whole thing, it's an informative read for sure! BEGINNING (CHEAPO) METHOD it's the basic 'bait and switch' tactic of youtube. "Hey I found a program that lets you print money! OMG <FOLLOW DIS LINK, FOOL>" type of video, trying to keep under 2 minutes long. Make it look nice in Adobe Premiere or something. Link sends you to a file then to a PPD website to get the 'final piece of the puzzle' then bazinga, I got da monees. THE METHOD WHICH I DESIRE MOST Upscale to around 10 YT accounts. Get some likes/comments/views to be high ranking pages in YT searches. Same type of videos, but the links will be set up differently. Maybe 1-2 niche videos per youtube account MAX! I will have a 'blog' website set up for each YT account, basically a landing page for each one. The flow will then go like this: Youtube -> LP (Maybe some small niche ads on page) -> content lock -> PPD file. WHAT I'M STILL LEARNING You're never really done learning, that's how college is so dang expensive! I'll keep reading up on others progress and any tips I receive in this thread. Also, not 100% on the method for linking youtube videos to the landing page with the content locker. I do have some time before I get to that level, but it's on my 'gotta know dis 100%' list. I'm willing to take any and all pointers! This post was made on day 2, so here's the details on day one. =================== THE FIRST DAY, DOLLA DOLLA BILL YALL [May 5, 2013] what I did: Crafted a fancy video in Premiere, got approved for a PPD, opened YT account and got everything linked up! videos: 1 views: 54 clicks: 1 downloads: 1 earnings: $1.16 EPC: $1.16 CR: 100% Wow.. first day I already got a download! MY FIRST DOLLAR. If I get it changed into pennies, I could make it rain. :3 I checked my account on my phone while at my sister's high school graduation banquet and was like.. "WTF I DID SOMETHING WRONG, ALREADY A DOLLAR?" So, once I quit the family stuff for the day... got home and checked that it was real! Starting off strong like that really scares me though.. probably won't have any other activity than that. CURRENT EARNINGS: $1.16 EARNINGS PER DAY: $1.16 || $68.84 to go! ===== I will try to post a log daily on earnings, and what the heck I decide to waste my time on. Stay motivated, people!
