    Oh, hey there!



    So I decided to put my mind into internet marketing once again. I've been failing, can't even count how many times, in the past, mostly because of my lazyness and not being dedicated enough. However, after reading a few forum threads, I decided to work my way up to make some bank this time with CPA and youtube. I know, you've seen this before and so what? I'm not promising that I will succeed, but I won't let go easily either. Note that I have no experience with youtube what so ever, so it's a new field for me to explore, hopefully the grass is green there.​

    The motivation behind this project of mine is this thread - http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/making-money/296254-200-day-journey.html
    I wanted/want to see how far can I go with more or less same method. I'm still checking his progress day by day and he's doing a good job, he doesn't give up when there are bad days, he keeps scaling up... that's what I'm looking for. Best of luck with your journey Kacho and hopefully you'll reach your goal.

    Anyhow back to my project. So I've made a little plan to fallow.

    * First thing first, I need a CPA offer to promote, meaning I need to join CPA network. I've leadbolt account, which is perfect for getaways, however I'm looking forward to join peerfly as well. As well choose a niche.

    * Make 20 youtube account and a decent looking landing page for leadbolt offers with a free domain.

    * Obtain mass youtube downloader and uploader, so I could save some time with this step.

    I will be updating each day with my progress as time goes by and hopefully you'll see growth and maybe inspiration behind this. As currently I'm at work, I will update my first results and what I've done later, this day.

    So I'm still here, but I'm facing some major/minor difficulties here. I've made a few YT account, and obtained some from a few users here in giveaways contests. All would be good, except I don't have much time and I don't have offers to promote. I was looking forward to get accepted in peerfly, but they rejected my application (not my first account there, messed up the previous one, so that might be the problem).

    Anyways, for the past few days I've been searching for some good e-mail/zip submit offers via offervault and till now, no luck. At the beginning I wanted to apply to Maxbounty, but decided to wait, because I wanted to gain some more experience in this field, so I don't fail when they call me. Still searching trough some offers on my free time.

    If you know some CPA network, similar to peerfly, with easy sign-up process and some decent email/zip submit offers, shoot me a PM or post it here. Also for those who have some CPA accounts (with e-mail/zip submit offers) that you don't use, I'm offering JV.

    Hopefully will update you guys more, just wanna get this thing rolling.

    Thanks for reading ;)

    Thanks for the kind words!

    I would suggest you to try again to get into Peerfly. Just tell them that you use Adwords and you want to see how it will go with their offers. Or you can tell them that you have a nice list of xx,xxx people (all geo targeted of course) and you can blast them emails everyday. You can also try to get into another CPA companies, there's no way that you will get rejected from all of them.

    For scaling my method I will soon have a custom made software that will be quite different from the other YT programs. I am having some problems with Peerfly and I'm not uploading any videos at the moment, because there's no point of making money with them if I'm not a 100% sure that they will pay me. That's also why I'm not posting at my thread at the moment. I don't know if there's anything wrong with my account but I will find out once they answer my email. Of course that doesn't mean that I've given up at all, I've applied to some other CPA networks and once I start using the YT tool I will also try another Facebook method, that is pretty much going to me successful too. Meanwhile I'm trying to rank my websites for some decent keywords.

    So I want to tell you not to give up. You see how much confident I am, even though I'm having one of those days when I make like $4 or $2 dollars? It doesn't matter whether you are making $1 or $10 dollars at the moment. It's important to start and find the possibilities to scale things up. Don't read any guru's ebooks because I don't believe that they will help you in any way. More importantly, don't spend your money on anything before you are sure that it's worth it. Wish you best of luck with your journey!!

    @Kacho - Yea' might do as you said and apply to peerfly once again, we'll see how it goes. Meanwhile I decided to start a small campaign with leadb0lt and see how it goes. Just need to find some interesting niche that people are talking about and set up the website. Will do it today, however they have manual approval, so I will have to wait for a few days till they decide, either approve or reject. Will start sending traffic as soon as I get approved.

    I'm not aiming big now, but I have set some goals, that I would like to achieve this summer, we'll see how it goes obviously. And about those guru's, I always come here if I need some information or if something isn't clear to me. Never spent a dime on information... however spent some money on services, which didn't do any good to me. So this time I will go manual from the start and later on will invest the money I made.

    Thanks for your time and best of luck to you too. ;)

    @convertkemist - Thanks for information, I applied to DaoLeads today morning, still waiting their approval will see how it goes.

    Alright, so I picked a niche on which I will build on my website and earnings. Made a small website using weebly.com, and using co.cc free domain for now. Applied to leadb0lt for it and waiting for approval as well. As soon as they accept me, will start driving traffic via YT videos and will keep building that website. Will keep you guys updated.

    It took me some time to move a little bit foward, but I managed to get into CPA network (sparxessence) and now posted a few videos I made using Photodex ~1 min. long. The video includes images and a text.

    I've a few questions if someone can, please share some info with me.

    * Anyone using sparxessence? Are they good? Do they pay?
    * Should I make longer videos and work with vagex to boost my views, likes and subscription up or mass upload?
    * Should I use URL shortener in describtion or I can just post my free domain name, such as http://www.domain.co.cc?

    While I'm waiting for responses I decided to boost my videos up with vagex, meaning that I'm aiming towards quality not the quantity. Shall I continue?

    I have a suggestion, if you link to the offer in the description box, then shorten the URL to a ****** Url, then you will also get 4$ each 1000 click on the link (Not saying youll get 1000 clicks, but if you do its just not fun to miss the 4 $ is it?:D) Have fun and Good luck!

    True though, but it would look weird if I would shorten the URL in description, but in video everyone will see www.domain.co.cc? Anyhow launched Viewet and boosting the views up. Hopefully it will attract more real viewers.

    Today made another video ~3min. long. Wasn't able to do more, but tomorrow will set up 5 more video and add them all to view generator. Unfortunatelly, today's stats aren't much different from yesterday's.

    Update!

    So if you're wondering what happened, why I didn't update this thread with latest stats etc. I was unavailable, had to go to another city for a good amount of time. Unfortunatelly, there was available only 3G and it sucked, a lot. That's why I didn't continue with my project or anything else. Lost a lot of time there, but I had to do it for private reason.

    Anyhow, since I'm back home I decided to jump right into this project once again. For the past 2 days, I gathered some useful things and information, what has changed. I'm still going to do CPA content locking on TV show site.

    Till now I obtain:

    A landing page (TV show site) with a content locker on it. I use MGcash, hopefully it's good.
    100 YT accounts for me to play with.

    Yesterday, I made a small video with one image, saying something like: "Can't upload video on Youtube, check out the link in description to watch it on another site". Wanted to upload same video multiple times for 10 different TV shows, but they were rejected by YT, because it was duplicated content.

    I wanted to ask you guys, should I make 10 different videos or I can simply just make one longer, second smaller, third even more smaller etc.? Also wanted to ask, should I use proxies to upload my videos to multiple accounts?

    good luck, i wish you well....!

    is there a reason why you're using a free domain? some places allow you to get a domain for 99c or $1.99.

    it sucks that you messed up with peerfly the first time. they're a very good network. as someone else said, try again, and if you get a rejection email, perhaps email the approval guy (his name escapes me right now) and explain your intentions. don't do anything against their rules again.

    i didn't get rejected by them, but i did get an email asking for further info until they approve me, what i planned on doing etc., and i got approved. i didn't have a website or anything. i just told them what i planned on doing. honesty is the best policy!

    just do the right thing, and you won't have any problems at all.

    all you can do is try again! honestly, i love peerfly. do the right thing by them and they'll do the right thing by you.

    good luck, and keep us updated!

    edit: by the way, i'm on a 3G thing at the moment because my internet's getting transferred to my new house, and it really sucks! i never want to use 3G again, lol

    I'm not bothering with Peerfly for now, since I'm going with content locking. They are good indeed with a lot of great offers, but right now I have Max account, so whenever I need some email submit offers I go there.

    As of for now, I have set up MGcash content locker for my Tv show site to see how it works out. Also have adscend media account and leadb0lt, so I can switch if I don't like something.

    Still looking for someone who can answer my YT questions, thanks!

    Just wanted to remind that I do it all manually for now, using fireuploader plugin for firefox. But I'm really looking forward to buy Video Marketing Blaster, once I save enough money from my project.

    ok, well it sounds like you know what you're doing.. just make sure that you aren't doing anything against your network's rules (it'll end badly), but do what you want. i hope the best for you, just keep it real.

    I'm not putting Max account on this project, because it's definitelly against their rules, as I said. I will be using MGcash, adscendmedia, leadb0lt with this re-start project. Thanks and will do my best.

    I'm using free domain, yes. Noone sees it until they click shorten link, that's placed in description. Plus I don't think it really matters for me to spend money now on domain, as I'm not trying rank it. I'm milking it from YT.
