I'm starting this journey thread to keep myself motivated because I have a habit of dropping things once I have started them. I have been reading a lot of successful Youtube journey threads as of late and it inspired me to try my hand on youtube. I am tired of trying things and rarely making money. I am a stay at home dad with two kids so I have plenty of time to make some money. My wife and I struggle to make ends meet and it would really make our lives easier to have some extra cash flow. What my plan is so far: I will try to make one youtube video every other day. The off days will be used to backlink the videos I made the previous days. I will try to get what backlinks to the videos I can (i have no tools so this can be time consuming.) I am running vagex and 5 enhance views bot instances 24/7, plus u2bviews and addmefast macros. I will also probably occasionally buy from viralsocials.com to boost my views (whenever i can spare the extra cash) I will use my addmefast credits for social shares such as facebook share, twitter tweets etc. (I heard these can help rank videos a lot) All my videos will be in a slide show form with me talking over them promoting the products in a realistic way. (make up a back story about how it helped me etc) my goal is to make my voice and my story to sound as realistic as possible. I feel that people can sense when they are being advertised to. My PPD videos I will capture the screen using camstudio showing me testing the keygen/software/whatever I'm promoting. What I have so far: So far I have 3 clickbank videos and one PPD "keygen" type video. I plan to mainly focus on clickbank because every keyword i try seems to be saturated with videos for PPD. My clickbank keywords are all longtail with low competition. The products I am promoting usually have a gravity of between 20 and 40. I have been at this a few days and so far $0 dollars and very few hops. I hope to see that change ver soon. I will post screen shots of my clickbank analytics whenever there is something worth showing. Thanks if you took the time to read this, and wish me luck (I need it)!
