    Hi guys. Some of you may have heard about Youtube Media Buying, probably through George Brown.

    http://www.trafficultimatumgeorgebrown.com/

    Go to Video #1 and Video #2 for the details.

    Basically the jist of it is you find high traffic videos and PM the uploader if they will place your link in their video's description box for a payment (say $30).

    Anyhow, I've tried this method out with my own PMs. So far I'm only getting one reply out of 20, and no one has agreed to accept payment to add my link in the description box.

    Anyone have any helpful tips or hints?

    Hey,

    I tried this back in 08/09 when it was much less competetive and was offering peanuts for videos with a high amount of views.

    It worked out ok but converted best with notifications at the bottom of the video (in green or blue - did some testing). Having a link in the description bar is going to get you no-where unless the video is related to looking in the escription bar e.g. for downloading something.

    I was doing clickbank products but if you expect it to convert... it wont.

    Funnily enough, what worked best for me is Make Money Online niche in music videos aimed at young people (I wouldn't of expected it but that's why it's important to test).

    Obviously you should constantly listen to Capital/WildFM etc for new songs that keep being played and immediately jump to youtube and contact video uploaders. This way you'll get the most for you're money as people will flood in and see your notification.
