Make money online from home by shortening links!
If you haven’t yet, sign up at Youtube!
Your main sources of video ideas are going to be www.sweetslyrics.com and www.directlyrics.com, go to those websites and check out their
latest music news. Very often if not daily, a new song or mix tape is released
from some very famous artists. Artists like Lady Gaga, Eminem, 50 Cents, Chris
Brown, Lil Wayne, Katy Perry and Britney Spears. The more famous the artist
the more money you make from this method.
Get as many new song names from these two sites as possible, you could also
try Google’s News search and search broad terms like, “new music” or “new
song” – and pick up brand new song releases that way too. Every little helps.
Now you should have a nice list of recently released hot of the press tracks to
cash in on.
REMEMBER: The key to this method is speed, persistence and consistency.
Running through the list of songs you’ve got now, head to YouTube and search
to see if any of them have already been uploaded, quite often the songs would
have been but you will notice that they would have uploaded quite recently
giving you enough time to duplicate their video (download – use KeepVid) and
re-upload the song on your YouTube account. Trust me; you don’t have to be
the first to rank no1 on YouTube search for anything… You just have to be the
best. I will explain further. But first download the videos, and if you’ve got a
super fast PC, remember that time is of the essence, reproduce the video, by
adding instructions right at the beginning and end of the video suggesting to
viewers that there are goodies to be found in the description that they do not
want to miss out on, you can do this in Movie Maker really easily… This trick
works really well and really explodes your earnings. Trust me on this one.
I recommend you reproduce as I just suggested but if you can’t or your PC
moves at a turtle pace then leave off the suggestion, why?, you don’t want to
pass up your opportunity to be in early. Not necessarily first, but early! If God
was to shine favour on you, you might even find you are indeed first to the
party and you get VIP treatment from YouTube.
Now your videos are up, you’ll find that they probably don’t show up for a
while. Not to worry, this is common – there is often a gap between a video
being uploaded and it hitting the YouTube search pages. But despite knowing
this, you mustn’t rest on your laurels!
In fact besides being early to the party, this is the most important bit.
If you are going to make a killing with this method, your video has got to rank
high enough on the most popular search term for your song! Let me help you
The first step to achieving popularity for your video is titling your video
extremely similar if not exactly the same as the most popular search term, and
by title I mean the actual title of your YouTube video! Not some title you add
to your movie file when publishing it in Movie Maker. Ok, so let’s say you
uploaded a Lil Wayne track titled – “That’s what they call me”. Fittingly you
should title your video – “Lil Wayne – That’s what they call me [2011 NEW
SONG]” or something along those lines! The most popular search term is
included – “Lil wayne that’s what they call me”, and the “[2011 NEW SONG]”
bit makes your video stand out from the others that might employ your strategy
too. What you fit into those braces could spell dessert or disaster so choose
Oh yeah, and pop a few relevant tags in there… don’t think they hold much
weight though as I see videos rank top even without any tags but you never see
that happen without an appropriate title. So pick your priorities right.
Next next step to making sure your video spearheads straight to the top of
YouTube search, or close enough to bank hard on , is actually really
Using the tricks I am teaching on YouTube I have had videos hit anywhere from
60,000 views to over 2,000,000 views! And you can imagine, my take home was
All you’ve got to do is ‘Like’ your video a few times… and you’re done.
Just kidding, liking wouldn’t hurt, but I seriously doubt it would affect rankings
too much, seeing as it can be gamed almost too easily. What you really need to
do is get traffic to your video.
Post a link to your video on music forums like Digital Spy and Buzz Jack
Now I know what you’re thinking… “The whole point of half of these steps was
to get traffic through YouTube, but now I have to get traffic to YouTube first?”
I know it sounds absurd but it’s true and it makes plenty of sense. YouTube
ranks your video based on its popularity and relevance and that is really all
that you must focus on. You’ve got the relevance, now you need the
popularity. Now let me further explain how YouTube reads this. If a video is
uploaded and in its first few minutes it gets a consistent stream of views, it
doesn’t have to be an avalanche, it is considered popular and indeed very
healthy. And that is what we are looking for. In fact getting an avalanche that
cannot be sustained beyond a few minutes or hours will hinder your chances
against other videos that have had a consistent growth at a steady natural rate.
So now YouTube has officially been dominated and the views start rolling in.
How do we go about making a bucket load on adfly?
But first remember when I said you should reproduce the video in software like
Movie Maker, or another one of your choice for that matter. That would have
been a good move. Just sayin’
But if you didn’t you could always add annotations to your videos, using
YouTube’s built in annotations engine and you could get the job done that way,
your choice, it’s more time efficient and editable because you don’t have to do
it before the video is uploaded, taking up a few valuable minutes and you can
always edit it later. However I do like doing it on video as that often makes
people trust it more as it almost acts as a verification that it’s your video and
not someone else’s and if done neatly enough it can push viewers to thinking it
was part of the song. Imagine what that can do to your earnings.
You want the link to target something directly related to your artist. I suggest
you pick something everyone who comes across the video would want to see for
themselves. It could be a shocking news story, here’s one off the top of my
head, in the case of Chris Brown, he always seems to accompany song releases
with controversial moments that are captured by video and that pays
dividends. Link to the news article! Maybe link to a YouTube related to the
You could just search YouTube for a video attractive a lot of attention that
relates to your artist and link to that. Of course all links will be masked with
Now be careful about this. Link relevant and don’t try to defraud adfly because
they have a deadly way of finding stuff out. Luckily I didn’t learn that from
NOTE: When linking, try not to use the default adfly URL, be different and less
recognizable, use one of their other redirect options like u.bb or 9.bb – VERY
That is the beauty of Adfly. You can actually make money ethically! Take advantage of it.
