    Having never been consistent with a method, I'm going to try promoting my TV show streaming site for the duration of one month. To monetize the traffic, I've got 3 options: either CPA Lead, Zangocash or Perfecttracking (I'm approved on all 3). CPA Lead being the preferred choice, as Zangocash has got bad rep as spyware and Perfecttracking is a little unknown (although I have heard it converts up to 15% better than CPA Lead). During this time, I will STOP reading BHW (other than this thread) and WILL NOT work on any other methods.

    As for getting the traffic:
    1) Twitter: I've not really familiar with twitter yet, but I bet it could be really good for getting tv site traffic. Almost everybody loves tv shows, so I could create accounts tailored for specific tv-shows.
    2) Facebook & myspace: great accounts with a lot of friends. Use mass messaging to promote my site or create fan groups for specific tv-shows.
    3) Youtube: teaser videos with links in description / annotations.
    4) Social bookmarking: bookmark my videos en masse for low competition keywords.
    5) Videosites: yideo, sidereel etc (this is dubious, as I believe these sites ban you in a heart beat if you are using content protection gateways).

    I will post the updates to my journal in the following format:

    Shows added to my site (minimum of 40 per day):
    Revenue generated:
    Work done:
    Time Spent (minimum 5h per day):
    Reflection (what to change/other notes):

    My goal: a modest $20 per day.
    All criticism and suggestions and motivation is welcome. I will start on full throttle as 14th of July. After this test run, I will move on to bum marketing.

    Best of Luck... I've heard that CPA Lead shaves, but I don't know if it's true or not, you will be able to see it yourself. Also I would suggest you to try other affiliate network, Hydra, Neverblue and so on, but it's up to you.

    CPA Lead shaves, I'm sure of it. It didn't seem that bad though...they have LOW payments on campaigns though.

    I'll subscribe to your journal :)

    Shiit, I got my ass canned from Sidereel. I had 400 episode there and got a nice 1000 uniques per day. I was using a 5 minute delay on my gateway not to get banned. But it only worked for so long :p, i was making a mere $8 day. ************** shaves like hell. When I start getting new traffic, I think I will setup my own gateway (BHbreaker) with e-mail/zip-submits spread out over different networks. Hmm, now I need to find a way to get some traffic. Maybe try out facebook and myspace. Any suggestions welcome...

    Quick notes: You should forget about sidereel and similar sites (unless you've got bots to spam for you). Also set the delay to 30sec or something: the 5 minutes delay is killing you. Use Perfect Tracking (they convert better). If you're able to code in geo-targeting, then use blackhat codebreaker.

    Feel free to send me a PM with your url, and I'll take a look and give you a few pointers. I'm not very experienced in this niche myself, but I make way more than $20/day.
