    I've already used tube increaser for my campaigns but still cannot get a single lead for campaigns like ringtone offers. If it still works then what am I doing wrong?

    How many CPA leads do you get per month from your youtube video?
    My goal is just to have at least 10 leads per month.

    Can you suggest some ways to make it effective?

    Thanks.

    It definitely still works. You just have to stick with a video and pick your videos wisely. Good keywords is another big requirement. Right now, I mainly use YT for Ringtones and 100 to 200+ days are often.

    Hey Artho,

    I can tell you that youtube still works for ringtones as well. Are you watermarking your videos. You have to make sure you pick videos at are popular...or are upcoming. Watch MTV and BETs countdowns to see which videos are popular.......rip, watermark, then upload them. Use tubeincreaser to add views to your video (probably thinking duhhh)....add ratings and favorites to the video as well......after about 3 to 5 days of doing this on a single video...i've found my videos usually go viral for about 2 to 3 days...then I have to start the process all over again.

    Here's my video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7p-ja6LSzrc
    I know putting it here makes it a target...but I hope there is honor on this board.

    Upload Video:
    Add Tags:
    Add a watermark or youtube annotation:
    Day 1: Increase views by about 5k to 7k
    Day 1: Add about 300 ratings
    Day 1: Add about 100 favorites
    Day 2: Increase another 5k views
    Day 2: Add another 200 ratings
    Day 2: Add another 100 favorites
    Day 3: Add another 5k views
    Day 3: Add another 300 ratings
    Day 3: Add another 100 ratings

    After day 3...your video should be viral....all you have to do is wait till you see lots of comments coming into your video....and you'll know you've gone viral. For me this usually lasts about 3 days. A week at most....but during that time...i get LOTS of conversions.

    yeh youtube still works lol i use it and still do. you dont just upload a video and increase views and hope for the rest. theres mroe to it than that. u need to have the right keywords in title. description and name of video file itself. same with tags..

    look at whats being searched for. old or new, study music channels on tv for popular plays. use them as starting point to. help spread the word about ur vids aswell. ie yahoo answers u can ask a question like. what do you guys think of this tune. then inc ur video url. use forums to. digg it. stumble it to. etc etc

    Yup, well said. Make sure you use a lot of tags and pick videos that are not too saturated but not unpopular either. It's really a matter of quantity (quality too) but the more videos you have out there the greater your success. The CTR is actually very good when people actually type in or click the link.

    @Unlimited - is that your car in your avatar?

    Another thing I tend to do is track my videos by subid. So once a video starts getting hits and being popular....i can tell which video converts the best for me.

    Is it better to watermark it with "get the ringtone @ url?"

    also would it be better if I said it was free?

    Great info! I know Tubeincreaser can increase the views, but what are you using to bump the favorites and ratings? How many other accounts do you have?

    Has it been picked up already by your aff network? Message on webpage - Your subscription to this campaign needs to be approved by merchant.

    I wouldn't worry too much about the honour amongst us, more so, whoever else is watching this board

    Thanks for letting me know that!!
    I was not thinking...I'll go and take this down now.


    As for how I get ratings and favorites. I use TubeBooster 2.0. Its pretty robust and does the job. Coupled with good proxies you should be golden.

    I purchased 1k youtube accounts from someone on this board a few months ago. I forget the guys name...but his yahoo messenger ID is: innovative_tech_asr

    He's a good guy and I would do business with him again. His accounts were all good and they are still active after 2 months of purchasing and using them.

    Not to make this an advertisement for him.....just wanted to give him his props.

    Most companies have put the nix on using the word "FREE" for ringtone offers...basically because they sure as fuck aren't free.

    Well, what kind of views and clickthrus are you getting? With some offers you make money on volume alone, so a 0.5% (not 5%, 1/2 of 1 %) conversion isn't bad(1 in 200). Heck for some offers, I'll take 1 in 500. Especially if it's a ringtone offer or some other higher paying offer.

    1% or a little less isn't bad, even for a targeted offer that only pays me between $1-$2.

    I think sometimes people expect miracles because of all the hype surrounding YouTube. Sure...once in awhile you hit a niche that takes off and starts making money right away, but it isn't "magic".

    I'd hardly say YouTube to CPS is "DEAD". It won't be dead until YouTube kills clickable links. Even then you'll still see some type in traffic.
