This method I was shown by my IM buddy on Skype last night.
I was blown away and surprised (in a good way) how easy he makes
money for a living
with just YouTube.
Being so excited and pumped up I JUST HAD to document that!
What surprised me the most is that he’s making money:
▪ without creating any videos!
▪ without even uploading any videos!
The only thing he uses is his empty personal YouTube account. And nope, this doesn’t
involve comment spam or anything illegal.
While we were having a chat, he told me only the basics.
But that’s more than enough for me to figure out all the rest 🙂
The method is super simple:
1. He find high trafficked YouTube videos (I will show you how in just a moment)
2. He message the video owners and ask them if they could add his affiliate
link in the description box for a one time, or recurring fee.
That’s it! Simple as that.
Takes around 10 min to implement and if agreed, he start making money almost
INSTANTLY. Total genius!
What’s the fee you ask?
It depends on the niche and how savvy those video owners are.
Usually it cost him around $10 to $20 (one-time payment).
„The AffManual 2.0“ by Raimundas M. Page 3
Just imagine a kid having a viral video that knows nothing about internet marketing.
Offering him a free $20 for just throwing a link in the description is like a dream come true
Some video owners are smarter and could ask a recurring fee. Which is also not bad
considering if you made money in the first month and the traffic (views) are still stable.
So, if you are ready to test this stuff, let’s move on to the Step-By-Step process and some
LIVE examples to get some ideas running.
Finding a trending (high
There are a few ways of finding these kind of videos.
First is an official YouTube Trends Dashboard website:
„The AffManual 2.0“ by Raimundas M. Page 4
Using TrendsDashboard you can spot videos that are currently trending and getting
momentum in a real time.
Some of them are by established channels, but there are also many videos from innocent
YouTube users that caught some crazy event, uploaded to Youtube and went viral.
These should be your first target to choose.
Another obvious place would be clicking on the „Popular on Youtube“ link
(https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCF0pVplsI8R5kcAqgtoRqoA) as shown below:
Again, lots of videos to target.
Which videos get the most views?
Below are categories that get the most views and interest:
• Music videos (single tracks, remixes, mixes)
• Trailers (movie trailers)
• Games (Minecraft, GTA and etc.)
• Magic tricks
• Viral/event/funny videos (filmed with smartphones by amateurs)
• Pet videos (cute puppies, dogs, cats)
Keep in mind that any of these categories can be monetized.
We will overview monetization strategies in just a moment.

After doing some research on this method, I have picked a few examples to get a closer
look on how they have been monetized.
One video that really caught my eye was:
It’s a dubstep music mix with over 2.8 mill views and growing.
„The AffManual 2.0“ by Raimundas M. Page 6
Take a look at the description 😉 Clickbank affiliate link!
What I like about this particular example is how smart this guy adopt the angle to the
Since this is a music video, he found a Beat Making Software on Clickbank and boom 🙂
Luckily for us, there are many similar videos (with many different music styles to choose
from) that are waiting for us to add our affiliate link.
PLEASE NOTE: I’ve not tested this personally, so I can’t guarantee any results. But since
he’s using his affiliate link for a while now, that means it is working for him.
Here’s another great example. This time in the „Magic Tricks“ niche.
„The AffManual 2.0“ by Raimundas M. Page 7
Magic trick related videos get a nice amount of views too and I know for sure that
Clickbank has some great offers in that niche as well.
Another example is again in the music niche.
Katy Perry remix video.
This guy is using a very similar approach as the above dude with the dubstep mix.
So I guess it’s working after all?
„The AffManual 2.0“ by Raimundas M. Page 8
How to monetize
Above examples are somehow related to the affiliate offer, but you will often find videos
that are very generic (funny/prank/event and etc.)
These videos are untargeted and for a very broad demographic. This is where I’ve seen
many marketers use CPA email submit offers (such as Free iPad, Free iPhone).
How it works?
Every time someone click on the link and enter his or her email address, you get paid
anywhere from $1.20 to $2.
With a very highly trafficked videos these numbers can add up very quickly.
If you don’t have an account in any CPA network, I recommend joining
They have many email/zip submit offers you can use.

Contacting the owner
and proposing a deal
Let’s find a video.
Visit the „Popular on YouTube“ section by clicking here:
Ok. So, after scrolling down a bit, one video in the “Cars & Vehicles” category already got
Let’s see what is inside…
„The AffManual 2.0“ by Raimundas M. Page 10
Looks good to me.
No link in the description box.
Uploaded today and already has 13K views.
Not much, but I would probably still offer 10 bucks for adding my „Free iPhone“ CPA link
in the description box.
Auto insurance CPA offer would be also a smart idea to test on this one as well.
Let’s message the author:
1. Click on his channel name below the video.
2. Inside the channel hit „About“.
3. And then click on „Send message“.
„The AffManual 2.0“ by Raimundas M. Page 11
I would write something like this:
Nothing fancy.. Attention grabbing Subject and a quick message.
I would wait for him to get back and then negotiate the price depending on how fast he
replied and how excited the owner would sound in his message.
„The AffManual 2.0“ by Raimundas M. Page 12
If the owner is excited and replied very fast, that means he’s desperate and probably one
time $10 payment would be more than enough.
What you are about to discover is something that is going on under the radar, but no one
is talking about very loudly.
One of the reasons is that Youtube don’t allow that kind of practice.
The good news is though that it’s not easy for Youtube to control or catch those who are
Some of the highest caliber affiliates I know are making crap load of money simply by
buying already successful Youtube channels and monetizing with CPA and affiliate offers.
Basically, they go and find channels with videos that get a lot of traffic and are somehow
related to the Clickbank offers.
Then they message the Youtube channel owner and offer anywhere from $100 to $200

How To Make Money Buying YouTube Accounts
I’ve been playing around with buying Youtube accounts lately for traffic and wanted to
share some of my story…
Now you might be wondering why would anyone want to buy a Youtube account?
Well if you can find a good account with a lot of views in your niche then you can promote
your website or affiliate links on those accounts pretty easily.
Take for example this video…
As you can see, this video has 77,258 views on it
It’s not a ton, but if the account has 20-30 videos like this then it would be well worth it to
try and buy the account.
All you have to do is go to Clickbank and find a workout of diet product and promote it with
an affiliate link under the video.
You can also add annotations to the video so that you can direct them to your URL
„The AffManual 2.0“ by Raimundas M. Page 14
(redirect it) as well…
Now the other way you can do this is to find accounts that have just 1-2 KILLER videos
with millions of views.
This is what I try to do.
Most of these accounts are run by kids who have no clue that the views they have are
So for a 12 year old kid, if you offered him $100 for the account he would probably gladly
HOW TO BUY THE ACCOUNT AND MAKE AN OFFER
This is where it boils down to a numbers game.
Most of the accounts you want, you’ll have a hard time getting an answer from the owner.
And if you do, most of them are skeptical that you’re going to scam them or steal their
identity (cant happen, but people are skeptical)
I heard some good tips on this from a Jason Moffat video I watched a while back – he said
that what was working for him was using something like this in a private Youtube
Hey, I just came across your Youtube account and Im interested in buying it.
My buddy and I are having a competition to see who can get the most traffic to
our websites and I want to use some of the videos you have to do that.
If you want to setup the videos on another account thats fine with me, I just
want your account as it is.
I can pay you like $100 for the account – and Ill send you the money via
Paypal or a check in the mail.
Let me know if youre interested.
Now one of the keys to this is that you have to find accounts that someone has no
emotional or economic attachment to.
If someone has a bunch of workout videos for their own site and they are making money
with it, they arent going to sell it to you.
And if some little kid has a bunch of his favorite WoW clips on his account, then he’s prolly
going to be hesitant with giving it up…
This is why you either have to tell them they can keep all the vids and move them to a new
account – or you need to find accounts that just have 1-2 really good videos that have 1
„The AffManual 2.0“ by Raimundas M. Page 15
WHAT TO DO ONCE YOU HAVE THE ACCOUNT
Once you agree on a price, then all you need to do is get the password from them.
Make sure you change it right away (along with any other information)
And then you can start to monetize the videos by linking them to your affiliate links – or by
sending them to your own website.
The best ways to link up is in the “About” box and also put annotations on the screen that
direct people to your website or redirecting URL.
One of the easiest ways to figure out which accounts to buy would be to go Clickbank and
find products that would fit certain types of videos.
So if there is a Youtube video of a 7 year old doing a killer solo on guitar then find a “learn
how to play guitar” product on Clickbank and put an affiliate link in there.
You could literally do this for almost every niche that has a product on Clickbank.
MY EXPERIENCES BUYING YOUTUBE ACCOUNTS
So far I’ve bought 5 accounts for $650 total.
My total affiliate commission made off all the accounts has been $1750.
Now the good thing is, if these accounts all stay active and the traffic stays the same, I’ll
make an extra $10,000-$12,000 dollars this year off the accounts.
I havent hit a MAJOR winner ($5k or more per month), but Im going to keep trying to see if
I can find one…
Pretty powerful huh?
Hope you enjoyed this report 🙂
