No, it's not what it sounds like. I'm sure he would appreciate what I did.
If you've ever been to his blog, you know that he posts some amazing stuff. I'm always on the hunt for viral YouTube videos. I often use them as entertaining content for my list.
So, to make $3,879, I simply embedded one of Tim's video on my website and mentioned it in my newsletter. I told them to forward the email to their friends if they like the video. I put some Adsense ads under the video and cashed in.
It was amazing how people started referring others to the page and it went viral. People were sending me thank you emails as if I created the video. All this and I didn't ask them to buy anything.
Here's the video - Video From The Recipe Secrets Newsletter
If you notice, there is not much else to do on that page after watching the video except click the ads. This is a great way to use Adsense. I don't really care if they leave my site because they're on my list and they'll be back.
If you have any amazing videos you'd like me to jack, let me know LOL.
