    I always wonder why people are like "$100 a day is nothing"...
    I think it's a good target number for anyone looking to get into IM.
    $100 a day (sustainable) means that you can quit your day job and start IMing full time - and once you do that you know what - You're a Goddamn Internet Marketer!
    Go for it man!

    It seems you guys really have something here. I agree that $100 is an excellent target. It's enough and it's realistic. Best of luck to your journey!

    Thanks for the good words :)
    $100 a day will be a huge achievement for us! We're still students, and 50? daily for each of us will be also great - it's an average salary here in Italy! -.


    Thanks mate :)

    I hear $100 a day/$3k a month is when people stop worrying about money, at least when there's no family to support. Keep going and good luck.

    Thanks mate! Well we don't care about money at the moment, because our families support us, lol. So a great part of the money we earn will be spent on our hobbies, the rest will be saved for future :)

    Thanks! :)

    Basically we are promoting fake keygens of various games, but we have twisted the method a little, as we are trying not to lose our visitors' trust. Only the time can say if this method will bear fruit.

    Sure! We won't stop, thanks man!



    Update time!


    Day 24

    July 20, 2013

    Impressions Clicks Downloads Earnings EPC
    142 35 5 $3.60 $0.10
    Not so bad, but I feel like our EPC could be way more high. We will stick with Cleanfiles till we need fast money, because, even if paypal is now disabled there, there are lots of CF to paypal services.


    What we did

    We recorded and edited 2 videos
    We uploaded 6 videos (I had some backlog)
    We wrote 4 articles

    What we are going to do today

    Record and edit 4 videos, and upload them
    Write 4 articles
    Boost 8 videos with some u2bviews' views, comments, likes, favourites and subscribers
    Exchange 80$ from Cleanfiles to Paypal


    Random thoughts

    Probably tomorrow we will order BigBuddy's 40k high retention, country, age and gender targeted views. We are boosting the 8 videos we will buy views for (5k for each of them), because BB's views are real, and at least a few views, likes and comments will make our videos convert more.

    Soon we'll start YouTube Top Commenting, we only need to finish uploading our main blog's videos, then with the same accounts and same proxies, we'll comment on our niches' video and thumb up those comments (can it be risky for the accounts?). My buddy will find the videos, I'll comment and upvote. Earnings will be invested in views.

    When all the videos will be uploaded, we'll start to set up some landing pages, for saturated niches. We'll use a referrer script on them, if we manage to make it work. We expect to have all the landing pages ready within the end of July, because on August my buddy will be on holiday and won't work, and I don't know how to set up a site (even if I know how to edit it).


    Main goals

    10$ a day within the end of July []
    75$ a day within the end of August []
    130$ a day within the end of September []

    Secondary goals

    5$ a day for a week []
    10$ a day for a week []
    25$ a day for a week []
    50$ a day for a week []
    75$ a day for a week []
    100$ a day for a week []
    130$ a day for a week []
    25$ in a day []
    50$ in a day []
    75$ in a day []
    100$ in a day []
    130$ in a day []

    We haven't reached any of our goals yet, but I feel that soon karma will reward us for the hard work, lol :)

    And that's all for today, have a good day!

    Yes our EPC is low, but this is due to our old shitty videos, our new videos haven't ranked well, but so far all our new files have got EPC > $0.10
    We don't use Landing Pages atm, but a multi-niche blog. We'll try to set up some LPs within the end of this month. Maybe you're right though, people on YouTube won't read long texts, and our download button placed at the end of a 800 words article won't convert much, lol.
    About targeting, actually we are going to buy BigBuddy's USA High Retention Views, I think it's a good method to target USA :)
    And thanks for having wished us good luck!

    Day 25

    July 21, 2013

    Impressions Clicks Downloads Earnings EPC
    105 38 4 $3.26 $0.09
    Nothing to say, our average EPC is still low, but this is due to our old files. I think it will raise after boosting 8 videos with BB's views.


    What we did yesterday

    We recorded and edited 3 videos
    We wrote 2 articles
    We exchanged money on paypal

    What we are going to do today

    Write 4 articles (already done)
    Record and edit 4 videos (1 already done)
    Boost 8 videos with u2bviews comments, views, likes (already done)
    Buy proxies and ask for youtube friendly ones (already done)
    Ask to double our proxies - we bought them from newipnow -
    Upload at least 3 videos
    Wait for a BB's reply to our mail, then buy views :p


    Random thoughts

    Our blog's visits grow every day, we're currently at 30+ unique visitors a day.

    Tomorrow we'll probably start YouTube Top Commenting, I'll create new accounts which will look real and upvote comments with the accounts we are using to upload videos. My buddy will find the videos we will comment on.

    We have to optimize our offers. Our currently range is $0.30-$20 for all countries. Doing this, we are removing offers from low-paying countries, and even if they're only $0.02 or $0.05, we are not going to renounce to those earnings :) my buddy soon will spent a few hours to optimize offers country by country, file by file.



    Main goals

    10$ a day within the end of July []
    75$ a day within the end of August []
    130$ a day within the end of September []

    Secondary goals

    5$ a day for a week []
    10$ a day for a week []
    25$ a day for a week []
    50$ a day for a week []
    75$ a day for a week []
    100$ a day for a week []
    130$ a day for a week []
    25$ in a day []
    50$ in a day []
    75$ in a day []
    100$ in a day []
    130$ in a day []

    We will reach them, no matter what!

    And that's all for today, have a good day!

    Day 26


    July 22, 2013

    Impressions Clicks Downloads Earnings EPC
    123 38 4 $4.19 $0.11
    Nothing new, our EPC is still low.


    What we did yesterday

    We recorded and edited 2 videos
    We uploaded 2 videos
    We wrote 5 articles (the last ones for that blog)
    We asked for YouTube friendly proxies
    We boosted the 8 videos which we will receive high retention views with u2bviews likes, views, and comments

    What we are going to do today

    Record and edit 3 videos (1 already done)
    Buy views (already done)
    Ask to double our proxies (already done)
    Upload atleast 3 videos


    Random thoughts

    Finally, we bought BB's views :) 40k High Retention country, age and gender targeted views, split 5k per video. They will give to our earning a huge boost. We have 20$ left in my paypal account, so if the views will give results, we'll buy instantly another 10k

    I was thinking, when we will reach our goal, the first thing we'll do is donate to bhw and become jr. vip. I'm so grateful to this community... :)

    One of our videos was deleted yesterday. Nevermind, I must have done something wrong with that proxy, maybe I forgot to clean cookies. I'll ask to replace that proxy when we'll pay the monthly fee.


    We haven't reached any of our goals yet.

    The best is yet to come! We will reach our goals, no matter what!


    Thanks for reading and have a good day!



    P.S: you might have noticed our new banner, any other suggestions to improve our thread's design?

    Day 27

    July 23, 2013

    Impressions Clicks Downloads Earnings EPC
    120 45 10 $8.02 $0.18

    Yesterday's EPC was very good. And earnings boosted, too. Maybe this is thanks to views.


    What we did yesterday

    We recorded and edited 3 videos
    We uploaded 4 videos
    We bought views
    We placed our download button at the beginning of our articles, so they'll convert better

    What we are going to do today

    Find videos where we will do top commenting
    Upload the two remaining videos
    Re-upload the video which got deleted


    Random thoughts

    Ok, so we received BB's views. Unfortunately, we haven't received so much conversion from them, even if our clicks increased by 10 yesterday (gone from average 35 clicks daily to 45 clicks). Hopefully in 3/4 days we will see ranking improvements and break that 10$ a day wall.

    So, today my buddy is gonna find videos where I'll post comments and upvote them. I'll do that tomorrow. I think it's a great method to earn quick money, which we'll invest in views.
