A Simple Way To Make Affiliate Money?

17 replies
Hi,

I have peiced together the following incredibly simple method of making money using YouTube videos but here's the disclaimer or caveat. I haven't actually tried it myself ss im not very technical with YouTube. I have seen a video which explains how to download videos from YouTube but I don't know if it is actually possible or if indeed it is possible to add affiliate links to YouTube videos.



1. Download creative commons videos from YouTube. Find the videos usibg creative commons search engine and download them using a Firefox add on.

2. Upload video back to YouTube under your own account. Add affiliate links to Amazon using bitly short URLs.

3. Post your copy of the video on related Facebook groups.

    Also, Amazon is not the best program for this type of thing. What is? 2 words: Content lockers

    Don't you think a lot of time will be lost in making this method work? I mean download re upload all that. I have had my own share of troubles with Youtube, had success one time when I had struck gold with providing fake zbigz premium accounts with content lockers like fileice. If you don't mind all the bad mouthing you can earn around 50 bucks with that. My video ranked first for the term how to get zbigz premium account for free and it had some 9k exact match search, however not many were willing to complete surveys though

    I think we should build relate website or blog with huge traffic. After all, think about affiliate products on them and hope convert visitors to customers. Just my idea !

    This is one of those things that work in theory.

    In practice that kind of spam activity is rather time consuming and will not make any significant money.

    The easiest way to download youtube videos is

    www.keepvid.com

    You just copy and past the video url into their box and then when you click download it will give you a couple of diffferent format options and you just choose one.

    THe file will end up in your internet downloads folder.

    and if you want to just download the audio from a youtube video you can use

    www.snipmp3.com


    Now about your method, I personally don't think it is the greatest method because it is an easy way to get your channel banned or deleted by Youtube.

    But then again there are those who are having success with it so go ahead and test it out.

    This is one of those methods that works "in theory" but not in reality.

    By the way, downloading and uploading is a huge waste of time if you're using this method. You could simply use the YouTube Video Editor to use the creative commons videos without having to actually download or upload anything.

    Amazon will ban you soon if you do this. Direct the traffic to your website/blog and then send them to Amazon

    I see you're still looking for the quick shortcut, then, rather than for a real business based on providing value?

    Well, enough people above have commented on some of the obvious shortcomings and failings of this "idea" for you not to need to hear any more of them from me, I think. I wish you well in changing your mind about the underlying basis of internet marketing and providing value to people in exchange for your income. If and when you eventually make that leap, you might even achieve some stable income and a real business.

    YT will also ban you for copy right infringement.

    You are better off creating a few good videos and starting from there investing the proceeds in more videos till you reach your threshold.

      totally agree - you will get banned soon - on Youtube you better create some of your own content for longer term then just something for short term, the strategy you want to try could work only for short term - but you better focus on long term and quality

    I wouldn't recommend that method to anyone. It would most likely take hundreds of videos to make a decent income from something like that and you could spend the time it would take to do this on something more proven, profitable, and effective.

    Thanks guys.

    I found one site that allows you to embed YouTube videos on your site but add affiliate links to it. Might try that.
