    Greetings!

    First off I'd like to apologize for how dull this Journey will look visually. Unfortunately, I'm not Kinlee and I can't have super cool pictures making everything bright, pink, and cute. :( Anyways let's get started!

    Little bit about me

    I'm 19 years old, and live in Minnesota, USA. Currently living with my parents and financially things are getting tough. I'd love to help contribute but being a music producer doesn't pay the bills quite yet. I have BIG dreams of moving to Los Angeles,CA in the near future and pursuing my career in music. I've had two songs released on a major label so it's definitely a possibility. But I can't make it out there with no money.

    I'm tired of giving up with IM. I start something, and don't see a whiff of results and I immediately get discouraged. I really do want to succeed with IM. I'm hoping this thread will keep me motivated. To me it feels like IM is some sort of sorcery, I can never grasp my head on it only because I haven't found something that worked, and stuck with it. But here are a few things I've been doing and preparing over the past couple weeks!

    Things I've started


    • Today, I've started watermarking vids of camgirls with my site as the watermark, and uploading them to xvideos. They go to my site and it's a redirect link to a crakrevenue offer. Even though I feel a little dirty doing this, I'm desperate to make money :p


    • Over the past week or two, I've finally decided to take the time and use my skills in music to create music for people. Specifically YouTubers. You know how in some Youtuber they have some House, Dubstep, or Electro song in their outro with some generic ass bass wobbles? I've started up a service where I'll only allow a limited number of people (5-10) to purchase the songs. Once that limit is reached it will pull the song from the catalog, keeping it unique to those handful of YouTubers. I'm giving them full creative commons rights to use my music. So, the price of the songs vary from $5-$10 per song. Unfortunately I'm terrible at finding people in need of these intro / outro songs. I've been doing my best on posting to popular YouTuber forums but still no sales...YET! Gonna stay optimistic!


    • I have two Instagram accounts in two different niches. Both with a few hundred followers, but haven't touched it in a little while. Hoping to be selling shoutouts with them. Will be picking those up very soon!

    These three are currently what I'm doing. If you guys think it's too much, too little, any feedback at all would be amazing!

    Things I'm going to do


    • Upload 4-5 videos a day for the camgirls
    • Continue to contact YouTubers in search of intro / outro music
    • Follow the 50 follower limit on Instagram of a targeted audience when I: Wake up, eat, take breaks from the computer, and lay in bed before falling asleep
    • Not give up!
    • Stay optimistic!

    I plan on re-investing most (if not all) my earnings wisely into bots, proxies, VPN's, etc.

    If anyone has any tips, comments, or methods you think I should try out let me know! It's 3:00 AM here so I'm off to bed now. If I missed anything, my apologies... Will continue with this journey in the morning. It's time I have success in IM.

    - Tim

    Sounds great, make an account on Twitter as well! You may be able to interact with those Youtubers!

    I have a Twitter but never thought to market my music business through it... I'll make adjustments to my Twitter tomorrow, and try promoting it. Thank you! :D

    Day 1

    I didn't really do much today. Spent most the day with my family. Got home, uploaded 4 videos right away. Got a few clicks, no commissions yet.

    Also one of the YouTubers from the forum got back to me today saying he was just thinking about changing his outro song for his channel. He said he likes my stuff, and will be going through the catalog of music seeing which would best fit his featured videos in the outro.

    Revenue today: $0

    Also, I know none of you want to hear how my day went. You're just here for the tips and tricks. But this journey will be somewhat like a blog. I'm not going to tell you what I ate for breakfast, or the fact I forgot to brush my teeth this morning. But if something got in the way of my work (ex. spending time with family) I'll document it, or even if I didn't earn any money. I'm still going to write it down so I can see how far I've come. Even if there are $0 days the first week or two, it's here to keep me motivated and optimistic.

    Good luck on your journey! Just imagine what you can have when you are 23 or so if you keep up with it.

    How do you download those vids of camgirls and what software you use to watermark?

    Thanks man, I can't imagine either haha. But hard work and dedication will get me there!

    The site(s) I find them on have a download button. Of course you gotta make an account but it's free. I've seen lots of sites starting to implement this download button. Just do some diggin! :) As for the watermarking I just use Windows Move Maker :p

    Good luck with this. You could make a lot of money with this. I used to have a bunch of community channels and wanted to do a music one too (one step further than what you're doing) but idk, music always had issues with copyright. And unlike you, I didn't make my own music ;P. Here's what I'd recommend doing. Getting a list of 1,000 youtubers in niches that sort of need this. Look for the ones in gaming, vlogging, and news. Especially the ones with intros already. Usually the small channels have pretty crappy intros, so introduce yourself to them. Getting a list of 1,000 should take 1-2 days. Then just messaging them the same message (maybe with minor adjustments) should take another day. You can get a bunch of clients that way. Most will say no, but the ones that do.. boom.

    Oh, and hey. I can't respond to your PM. You have a full inbox for the past few days..

    Don't feel like that, you are doing a social service IMO :p
    and i am a youtuber myself, would you mind sending me a few samples of your work ? :)

    I never noticed my inbox had a limit hahaha xD I cleared them up :) Also, if you could include in the PM some tips on gathering that massive list? I've been messaging people on the YTtalk forum. But it's a slow, painful process messaging each person.

    Thank you for the support! :D

    Haha thank you man :) I'll shoot you a PM now!

    Day 2

    Today was kind of my off day I suppose. I ran into the cities and was running errands all day. I live in a small town so it's an hour drive alone. However I did manage to find and download 5 videos pretty quickly. Will be watermarking, uploading, etc. tomorrow! I've got nothing planned the rest of the week, so I'll have plenty of time to make a big dent in this journey!

    Day 3

    Last night I fell asleep before I got the chance to post Day 3 :p But I watermarked, and uploaded 7 videos. Still no leads, YET! Just clicks. Thinking about this, making $50/day is very simple. The offer I'm promoting pays $50 per signup, so really all I need is one person to signup a day. That's simple. Just getting that person to purchase a subscription will be a pain, but this is a highly converting offer.

    I'll more than likely be buying AVS Adult (not affiliated with them) to automate my uploading process, once I make some money of course haha :p

    If you get $50 per sign up, than the visitor needs to pay about $200-300 to sign up. Try with something lower or just with ads. Good luck to your journey!

    why not reach out to video marketing companies as well as youtubers, and possibly offering your music as outros and jingles, maybe even add a unique outro/jingle to them ad a slightly higher price.
