Whats good with it. Well quick short story about me, I have known about the other small IM forums, but never really wandered off to establish myself on them besides BHW(this isn't my bhw username, is a different one).Sadly that forum, especially the youtube section that I greatly cherish, is going down hill and words on the street is that the staff members are debating on closing it. So I decided to make this new forum , mostly the youtube section and ewhoring, my new home and get myself comfy.
Now I have spent quite a lot of my IM years in social networks, i did start out on Facebook, and then I have been on Youtube ever since.
Since BHW is getting to big now so I rather not talk about any of these methods/ideas/discoveries/tricks on there since it would get saturated very quickly and would get patched by youtube faster than here and just I am not happy how that forum is being run right now. I am more into the underground forums of IM(ones that haven't been discovered yet) than the big ones.
Lets talk about youtube marketing, as you all know youtube has a huge amount of visitors that you can monetize luckily enough there is more than 1 way to monetize youtube and from those ways there are more niches you can do.By ways i mean, uploading, commenting, commenting and rating, subscribing(subs 4 subs, etc), sending messages, etc.
So what am going to plan on doing is to write methods that would be categorize within each category or categories, and sometimes it will include using third party software/services/websites etc. So uploading methods, comment rating methods, mass messaging methods etc.Meaning, this is Part 1 of hopefully many series to come.
Now as most of you might know, movie sites were pretty big back in the day (like 1-3 years ago). They were easy money making and there were people making hundreds a day some thousands with very few sites. Today is a different time, cpa networks got all these copyrights lawsuits and most of them stopped accepting any affiliates promoting any copyright content. So there are now very few networks where you can actually promote movie sites(will mention a few where you can sign up).
There are 2 ways of doing this, promoting trailers or promoting movies, tv shows etc.
If you promote trailer sites, then is a lot less money since its hard to monetize this with cpa, so the only option I see is to promote this type of movie trailer sites with adsense, intext-advertising(will mention a few where you can sign up). While movie sites, tv shows etc are more profitable when monetized by cpa networks(only the ones that accept it).Keep in mind though that this niche is pretty saturated and it doesnt bring a fraction of what it did before, but if you keep working at it it should be a pretty semi-automated 10-40 dollar days. More if you can be part of the 1-5% that can make more than that.
First , we need to actually set up the site . You can choose to use any of the premade wordpress scripts out there but it would cost you since they are not free or you can make the site yourself and get the movies from somewhere else. IF you choose to go the latter, then let then check at the bottom of the thread for the more info since I will not go into details of how to setup your site and the process .
If your going to do movie trailers then check out some automated movie
trailer scripts that you can buy(check end of thread for more info), or
you can always do your own and automated with yahoo movie trailers.
Remember that how you monetize trailers and actual full movies/tv shows sites is different.
Movie sites/tv shows you offer them the movie but you content lock it with a content locker(mgcash provides one)
just like *SPAM* type sites operate. But with movie trailer sites ,
the chances of people doing a survey just to watch a simple movie
trailer is very low and you will lose your traffic to potential adsense, intext-advertising and pop ups revenue and what not if you prompt
them to fill out a survey. So in other words you earn less with a movie
trailer site, but the risk is lower since you will most likely not get a
C&D or copyright complains, but hey no risk no gain.
If you do this manually you are going to start earning very little, uploading methods are supposed to be semi automatic.So if you can get access to some very basic good bots for youtube you will be one step ahead. Also in the uploading game your speed at what you are uploading matters,and dont forget to get some proxies too but you dont need them if you dont upload much, if you want to upload with your own internet connection you better have a fast connection , else get a dedicated server or vps(get windows if you are using a windows program to upload).
The objective would be to eventually have your vps or dedicated server uploading atleast 8 hours a day if not 24 hours a day and just spend like 1 to 2 hours a day at most every day(or when you need to), more if you are barely starting out, getting your bot ready to start uploading while you are gone.( so get a stable bot)
You might be asking so what videos do I upload. Well if you want to reinvent the wheel you can go ahead and get animoto, or windows movie maker and make your own videos(which I will not go into details about how to create your own videos), but that would defeat the purpose of time and efficiency. The best way would be to upload videos that are already there and just rip them and reupload them on your youtube accounts, thats the best way in my opinion unless you are covering a very uncompetitive movie,tv niche and there are no videos in youtube but thats rare.
What Videos to get:
What videos NOT to get:
(you can upload the videos Not to get if your lazy and uploading a lot of videos that is not time efficient to look over the vidoes that you are ripping to upload, most people that do this are doing them by bots that scrape by keywords and upload a lot or is automatic)
Notice that you don't want to get videos that have the url in the video watermarked, or in a slideshow because your promoting their site. You want to get videos that have something like "Click in the link in the description to watch movie". One tip to notice is that the longer the video is, like 8-13 mins the more clicks you can get thats because users would think is actually part of the episode since is not a 30 secs to 2 min video which most of them will think is fake.Sure you won't convert all of them that watch your video , but it helps to get your video notice.Remember your videos that you upload will look like something like this
Watch [Movie/Tv Show] Season x Episode x Part x online
Watch [Movie/Tv Show] Season x Episode x Part x online FULL EPISODE
Watch [Movie/Tv Show] Season x Episode x Part x online HQ
Method 2 - Straight linking FREE CPA offers from a video
This is one of the easiest methods to do for uploading, but its not as expandable and big as other methods of uploading since there are very few cpa offers you can promote using this method.
So just as the title says it, this method involves uploading videos that are related to basically free email submits.
Step 1 :
Since most people that do this method don't really have a website, then the first thing you should do is to get in a good cpa network that has plenty of free email submits to choose from. You want to find ones that you can get credit for 1st page submit, but its okay if you use a 2nd page submit.Making sure you have the right network is what going to matter as you want one that pays high on their email submit offers and has a lot to choose from.
(For more info about cpa networks to join check bottom of the thread please)
Step 2 :
So the videos that you will be uploading will be videos like, free walmart giftcard, free ipods, free ipads pretty much any apple product as those are high in demand. You can also do games, like free bf3 games, free cod mw2, black ops etc.Remember if you want to reinvent the wheel you know what to do, else like my previous method mentioned.Rip and Reupload!!!
What Videos to get:
What videos NOT to get:
I dont have anything specific, but pretty much try to avoid any videos that show a person talking and just focus more on the ones that are slideshows based, since you can basically download and reupload them by the bulk.
Step 3 :
This should be easy, put your cpa offer link in your description and bank.Due to the fact that there are only so many offers you can do this with, this method is hard to expand into the hundreds a day but its easy to do it if you need chunk change and your into mass uploading and not too much into quality.
Method 3 - Promoting Amazon Videos
Now lets move down to some real money makers, this method is more time consuming than the others but it actually involves promoting amazon products through videos, which gets you commission from amazon affiliate program. The big difference here is that, most of the times you will need to upload your own videos, videos that you created, since most people that are doing this method are youtube seasoners they know their shit more than most people think. Don't forget this method will not get you instant cash, in fact amazon Payments are made on a Net-90 basis. But don't get discourage as this is one of the methods that pays the best over the long haul and can be scaled pretty big, and most stable in my opinion.This one is for the youtube money-maker season-er or the ones that care about building a passive income empire from youtube videos.Step 1 :
Needless to say, you will need to sign up for amazon affiliate program and get approved before you can start, I will not go into detail about how to do this so use google to find out if you need help with this.
After that first thing that should cross your mind is whether you want to just promote amazon products by linking from your videos with your affiliate link or if you want to actually get an amazon store, either by some kind of amazon wordpress plugin or by making it your own.
you choose to go the site route, then you will have a much better setup.Plus if you ever get your site making some money, as these sites usually can run on their own without doing much work once you get
organic traffic or stable traffic ( aka uploading a fuckload of videos to youtube.),then you can actually sell your site on Flippa.com.
Step 2 :
Your next step should be creating the videos and using the right tools to create them. Windows Movie maker, animoto and other tools for video editing are the first things that should come to your mind when creating these videos just like the other methods.
Very few people out there that are creating videos on the fly with automated tools,api etc , thats because this actually requires time to make some slideshows or video reviews about the product . So its not easy to automate that unless you have a great setup with some automation tools that can create automated videos with images and soundtrack if you wish. If you have some cash to spend you can use animoto api and stupeflix api to do all this, but it won't be free and it will require some programming skills.
(Check bottom of the thread for more info on these api's)
Also keep in mind, you can upload other people's videos but you will get better results if you create your own since there is more than 1 way to create them and you dont risk the chance of having them get taken down easily since these people guard their videos more than any other youtube money makers I know given the fact that they put a lot of time and effort creating them , not including clickbank affiliates who are in almost the same category as these people.
Step 3 :
Now the videos that you will be trying to upload are essentially any product that you can find on amazon, which is almost like a walmart.(FYI amazon is walmart greatest online competitor)
So if your promoting like "winter coats
" then you want to go ahead and grab some affiliate links to some winter coats and make a video about that specific product.
So if you want to do it simple, something like this on the title will do
Skechers Raspberry Radiance Girls Jacket
Now I told you that this method is one that many youtube seasoners and pro's do, so just making videos with your product and review isn't what everyone is doing. So you can do all sorts of videos for this, like putting multiple products in one video. For example
Best Winter Coats for WomenBest Winter Coats for Women: BGSD Women's Thinsulate Filled Hooded Long Coat
Check this guy out so you can see how he promotes winter coats.- http://www.youtube.com/user/BestWinterCoats
Check this guy out for vacuum cleaners(warning his videos are very well done lol) - http://www.youtube.com/user/buyingvacuum
I think I don't need to say that winter coats are only in style for the winter, but I wanted to show you guys this method with a seasonal product example instead of the most common products like electronics, like laptops, cameras , tv's which pay more per commission(check at the bottom of the thread for amazon's commission), but there is more competition with these niches and is hard to rank your video with just a simple slide show or review product. So ultimately if you want to succeed using this method , choose products that are low in competition on youtube and your videos would rank easily for the keywords you are targeting. And remember for seasonal products, always promote them before the season starts(1-2 weeks before) or at the beginning of the season so you can catch the wave earlier, of hungry shoppers looking to spend their money, and not be left out at the end when season is ending.
So the more obscure you go the less competition there is, so if you want to go and promote diapers then you shouldn't have a problem ranking (although i don't know how many people are looking to buy diapers on youtube lol)
Well thats it for now, I will either continue a second part to a couple more uploading methods, or start a new part on a different area of youtube .
Using unicode characters in the title is another way to
get your video noticed, people tend to like flashy catchy things. So if
you have a catchy title you will stand out from the rest. This easy to
follow tip works like a charm and its easy to implement.
☺ ► ★ ❤ ⌦ Title ⌫
(More info where you can get a library for all these unicodes characters at the bottom of the thread)
Adding Fake Comments:
You get much better results if you add fake comments to the videos you upload, things like. "Thanks this video helped me a lot"
or "This video is awesome!" etc. Remember to actually try to make your comments relevant to your video or niche, but you can also add some generic comments too.I am against fake views, as it just messes up your actual statistics and doesn't give any real improvement to your videos performance in my opinion in the long run, so I didnt list that as an option as I have never done that in my youtube experience nor will I plan in doing as a matter of fact I believe thats what noobies do when they start youtube .
Things to keep in mind:
Questions like how many videos per account, how many accounts per proxy,how many tv shows episode per account are all subject your taste. Personally I would do around 20 videos per account , and around 5-10 accounts per proxy. Unless your accounts are low quality and are likely to get banned in a week without touching them then you should probably do less videos per account and less accounts per proxy. Remember this is a numbers game, a lot of accounts will get banned, videos removed, and most of the traffic comes within the first 1-2 weeks of the videos uploaded(for most methods). So overall if you upload many videos a day you should have a passive income from all the videos you have on youtube.So once again if you are not doing the videos and just reuploading other people's videos then its mostly about quantity instead of quality , so the more you upload the more you make.
Youtube cares about accounts, and from experience since I have created thousands of accounts myself by my bots. How you create them and what you use to create them will matter a lot in terms of banning, so what you do with them wont really be the only factor of why your accounts get banned. Don't forget to ask your account provider how he creates them and what emails he uses. If you are creating them yourselves, stay away from most free email providers like yahoo for example. Those are very low quality emails and youtube has started to catch on to youtube accounts with yahoo emails. Best advice I would give you is to actually make accounts with different emails(and proxies of course) and use them to see if you notice any pattern, youtube is always changing their system without most people noticing.This should be obvious but always check your proxy or ip against any blacklists like spamhaus to make sure your ip isnt blacklisted as that would easily cause your uploading, or any activity on youtube to be removed.
If you still have more questions feel free to ask them here but remember 90% of what a great IM
youtube'r will learn is by looking at other peoples niches in youtube
and examining what they do. This thread will just give you a basic idea
of what to do and some extra tips, but always remember to spend 90% on
youtube analyzing your competition and 10% posting on forums when
starting out. You will learn a lot more doing that.

Notes:I didnt put any *SPAM* type networks due to the fact that if you are thinking of monetizing anything with those networks then your probably thinking about earning cents a month, those networks arent worth sending traffic unless you have a fuckload of junk or almost useless traffic, which most people don't have traffic to burn or have barely any traffic.
