    YouTube + CPA Journey To $150 A Month (2017)

    After Fiverr screwed me over this past month and cut my income down by 85% (FOR NO REASON) I decided it was time for me to explore other money-making avenues.

    Something I have always been good at is creating and establishing a brand on YouTube. I'm also very good at YouTube SEO, so I figured I would combine these things together and use them to make some money with YouTube and CPA offers.

    My plan is basically the same as the typical YouTube and CPA plan. The only difference is I will be incorporating social media into the mix to drive traffic to my videos, and I will also be establishing a legit brand (for the most part). This isn't going to be a journey where I just create some spammy YouTube accounts and crap out 10 videos every day- that's not how I like to do things.

    Addressing the goal money amount, the reason why I'm keeping it low at $5 a day or $150 a month is because I am going to be using the money I earn to fund other projects and to pay for some automation programs. I've always been a fan of reinvesting money earned, and the money I earn from this journey will be for just that. I'm also a fan of being realistic and $5 is a realistic amount to earn from this method.

    What I've Done So Far
    (2017-05-28)
    - Picked the brand name
    - Created the YouTube channel
    - Created the matching Twitter profile
    - Designed a logo
    - Created a YouTube banner and display picture
    - Created a Twitter header and display picture

    Conclusion
    To start, I plan on updating this journey every 3-7 days. Providing daily updates isn't worth it at the start since I probably won't earn anything for the first week or so.

    If you have any questions, let me know!

    EARNINGS (2017-05-28) = $0

    Thanks!

    Thanks! I'll be using CPAGrip- I like their content lockers/URL lockers. I will be promoting niche offers for iOS games. I'll be customizing the content lockers/URL lockers to match the game I'm promoting.

    I'm a level 2 seller with over 240 sales and $4000 revenue- I don't think making a new Fiverr account would do me any good. If I'm not getting any sales on my current account then the platform must be broken.

    It is for establishing a brand and looking trustworthy. I wouldn't trust a video from some random channel with no branding personally.

    YouTube + CPA Journey To $150 A Month (2017)
    UPDATE #1

    It's time for the first update! This week went pretty much how I expected it to. The thing that I need to mention (which I did mention in the journey's introduction) is that I have other projects I am working on along with this journey, which is why I didn't go crazy and upload 10 videos or anything like that. With this said, I'm sure I can put a little bit more time into creating videos and promoting the videos in the future. As for the videos I did upload, things went pretty well! 1 of the videos ended up ranking for a few terms which will help the video gain more organic traffic over time, and I'm expecting to be able to rank more videos in the future.

    What I Did This Week
    (2017-05-28 to 2017-06-03)

    - started targeting prospective followers on Twitter, ended up gaining 4 followers after following 117 people (I didn't put much effort into this).
    - uploaded 3 videos, got a total of 75 organic views across the 3 videos.
    - I got 54 total views on my CPA offers/content locker pages this week, with 28 clicks and 1 lead.

    Goals For The Upcoming Week
    (2017-06-04 to 2017-06-10)

    - upload a minimum of 3 videos (hopefully I can get 4 or 5 up if I have time).
    - get more active on my Twitter marketing, hopefully, I'll start gaining some targeted followers.

    Conclusion

    To conclude, I guess you could say this week was pretty good progress in terms of getting into the swing of things. I wasn't expecting to make any money at all for at least 2-3 weeks, so making some profit was a nice little bonus. I'm glad this isn't my only project that I have going on at the moment because it's amazing how hard it is to get people to simply enter their email address into a content locker. Regardless, I'm happy with how this week went, and I know that as time goes on I'll start earning more and more money. I'll probably create an actual content marketing strategy in the future, maybe I'll focus on 1 topic for an entire week so then I can target people better than uploading a video every day on a different topic.

    EARNINGS (2017-06-03) = $1.73
