    Did the music video "niche" for about a week, uploaded like 20 vids, got 17k views in a week on these vids... Half of them I linked to a CPA offer and other half I linked to sharecash DL for music file... Haven't made a single penny off 17k views.

    I'm looking to make about 100$ without investment before I set up a hosting + website and do anything like that. I want to see if I can earn something from scratch before investing further.

    Can anyone offer some advice? Not looking to be spoonfed, just need some pointers to get to right direction...

    Also, what other methods can I work on that do not require a start-up investment?

    Lol.. because i think music isn't worth the sharecash download. People now a days only download with yt converters or non survey links. like filesonic..

    or it's just an awful song ;)

    I don't know, maybe you should consider investing. It's hard enough to make money with investment. I mean, I'm not making much but I can't even stand to use shared hosting and use my own Dedicated 8 core server with 12GB RAM on a 1GBit line :p.

    certain combinations of promoting on YT just plain stink. I've tried the same method you're doing, from my experience, it sucks.

    I've made more off linking to a ringtone offer then I have promoting email submits/ MP3 content lock on music vids.

    One thing you can try is filesonic, though it will take quite awhile to build up decent earnings doing that, especially when accounts will start going down for copyright. In my opinion you're better off just trying a totally different niche.

    Because your offer download is too common and very easy to get it from other sites? Do you use specific name for the song to make it look not so common?

    Or you can easily convert using ****** CPM to make money, about $4 paid for 1K US traffic.

    I will give you $100 a month if you can give me each video you would upload to get 17k visitors a week. Contact me if you are interested.

    Edit: they can not be on youtube already or copyrighted

    You didn't read their post at all did you? No. They uploaded 20 videos and got 17k views total, so 850/per video.

    It's already been said, but your using a method that simply doesn't work for obvious reasons.
    1) People aren't dumb anymore, most know how to download music illegally
    2) The ones that can't, are still capable of using one of the many "download mp3 from youtube" websites out there
    3) EVERYONE hates sharecash

    You don't need $100 for a domain and webhosting, you need $0.01 for hosting (1 month from hostgator) and $1.99 for a domain (.info), but obviously having more money (ie $100) is going to be much better (more domains, better tlds, longer hosting etc)

    If your not willing to invest money, then you won't make much. It takes money to make money and anyone really earning online knows that, if you want to earn some money to start up, that's cool, not all of us can afford to invest our own money and want to make money to reinvest it.

    Look for odd-jobs online, DP is a great place to look, depends on what skills you've got. The most basic method of making startup cash is writing articles, you can't go wrong! Just offer cheaper prices then other people and you'll get jobs, get a profile going, build up a reputation and up the prices. I mean you can usually get $1.00 for 100 words, so if you say $0.60 for 100 words, your more likely to get the job.

    Write 10x300 word articles and you've made $18, rinse and repeat a few times and you'll have a decent amount to begin investing into other ventures, you've just been spoonfed, now go take action!

    Actually, I said I wanted each video that it would take, meaning plural to achieve the aforementioned view count. So, in reality, it is you that did not read my post.

    :rolleyes:

    Thanks for playing

    Now there is ways to make money without money, dont listen if someone says otherwise. I have started many ventures with 0$ budget to get starting cash and never failed.

    If you can upload lots of vids and get views you should open up an blog with your CPA offers inside.

    First think what kind of audience there is with these videos?

    If they are like 15-20 years old youngsters you should give them something like free iPad email submit. Make your blog seem as realistic as possible and tell them that you have allready got your free iPad and push them to fill your CPA offer.

    So let's say you get 17000 views in week and 10% CTR to your blog then you have 1700 visitors and if your conversion ratio is 2%, you get 34 email CPA offers filled, if you get $1,5 per email you earn $51/week. So it takes two weeks to reach your goal. Or upload more videos and make more....
