It can be challenging to find a list of publishers to advertise with. One of the more reliable sources is called Directory of Ezines which is run by Charlie Page. Alternatively, you can look for email newsletters publishers on your own to see if they’re open to selling you a sponsorship spot. But be on the lookout for lesser known email ad networks as well. Many affiliate marketers have reported using various networks with varying degrees of success.
You probably have heard of the $5/day method. This method only works well, when you create multiple adsets at $5/day. It is very important that when using the Facebook/Instagram ad platform that you split test different interests, ad copy, ad creatives and you can only do that with more than one adset. So do not be fooled by marketers who tell you, you only need “$5 per day” for Facebook/Instagram ads. After spending thousands of dollars on the platform I can tell you that this is not true. What they forget to mention is that you should set up multiple adsets, each at $5/day and test the adsets against each other to see which one performs better.
Some of the most often overlooked tools are YouTube’s Cards and Featured Content tools. When used correctly, you can actively suggest more content for viewers to watch, potentially converting a single view into a longer, more engaging viewing session of your videos. To find views sourced from these tools, look for Video Cards & Annotations, Featured Content and Channel under the Traffic Sources of YouTube Analytics.
Hi Beven, Good questions. I used all these networks, otherwise, I wouldn’t write about them or recommend them on my blog. I believe that all these networks are good at providing you with conversions, it just depends on your product/service/etc and what your goals are. For example, let’s say you would want to advertise your digital startup agency, you could very well have great success in advertising it on Bing and Facebook, and get some nice leads that might convert into sales later on, but if you would try and advertise the same agency on Popads for example, you won’t see that much success I’m afraid. It’s all about the offer and what you’re promoting and what you’re goals are. Like in the example above, Popads might not work for your digital agency, but it can work for someone that is doing dating cpa offers, betting, casino, make money online, etc… So all of these companies have their uses.
The traffic quality is of high standard as compared to pop traffic because advertisers target their audience based on keywords and specific websites related to their niche. This ensures that the traffic is highly targeted. It is quite cheap at the same time and sometimes you can receive views in as low as 1 cent. Below are the lists of networks which provide PPV traffic:

From what I understood from the YT brand managers is that how your video is watched in the first 24 hours will decide how much it will promote your video on home and suggested. Retention (%) and amount of subscribers checking your video (with good % retention) are the most critical for them. Of course it's not the whole picture but it's a very important one.


When you visit the Home screen, YouTube will recommend videos from your subscriptions, videos watched by similar viewers, new videos and more. It’s also a place where your videos will be found by non-subscribers,  how  YouTube recommends these videos, how well the video has engaged and satisfied some of the viewers plus  your search and watch history, how often you’ve watched videos from another channel or on a particular topic and how many times YouTube has already shown that video to you.
About your question, well I will be honest with you… I tried a few things for Brazil, nothing really worked well … no idea why… Tried Dating & survey CPA offers without any success, with over 3k clicks to each offer = 0 conversions with multiple landing pages etc. It’s weird, I get conversions from Mexico, Nicaragua, Argentina, Peru etc… but nothing in Brazil after 3k clicks. I also tried Adsense and I got only my money back or maybe just a little bit of profit like if I invested $10 I would get back either $9-10 or $11-$12 in adsense, and that is with all the advertisement done in Portuguese and the content of the site was in Portuguese also. So not that good of an experience for me with Brazil, I’ve talked with another marketer friend about this and he also struggles a bit on Brazil, he told me that it’s all about the way you’re selling things over there and you need to understand the culture etc… Not really sure what that means but at least I wasn’t the only one who failed lol.

By selecting the “Views” section from the dashboard – as shown in the image above, you can just use the slider bar with a date range above it to customize your report date range.  Once you are able to change dates, you can pin-point how traffic increased as a result of a particular campaign or any other marketing effort that was sending viewers to your YouTube channel.  The rest of the report metrics will also adjust automatically to the date range selected.
These are all great points. I have not seen you mention SEO but I am sure you have covered that in other posts. I can attest to the effectiveness of SEO in the tags and description. I made a video that was sort of a dud at first. All I did was change the tags and add some keywords to the description and the video started appearing in the search and browse features. Just that. I was getting 300 views per day from 2 videos. Not bad, I think, for something that had a big oval zero.
Views per unique viewers is the amount of times the average viewer watches your video. This metric tells you if people can’t get enough of your video and keep rewatching it. Video topics with a lot of views per unique viewers could also be your most popular content topics, and if you cover them more, you could generate more views, watch time, and subscribers.
Thank you so much for your reply, i really appreciate it man, and your reply in itself deserve to be an article for start up newbies, i just want to let you know that i will make a niche website and try to get an audiance from the social networks first, like you said it’s a slow process & painful, but it DOES work, better than investing in media buying with such a small capital, thanks for making my head straight on this one !
Step one. Find an email list owner. These persons are usually blog or website owners who have a lead opt in form for capturing emails for persons who are interested in receiving their content. Before you contact the owner, check to see that content is frequently updated just in case the blog is an abandoned blog. Obviously, choose a blog or website that is closely related to your area of specialisation since the email list subscribers are more likely to understand what you are selling and hopefully buy it.
The customer journey is extremely varied, so remember that in reality, a mix of pay-per-click advertising and other organic channels is probably the best way to bring potential customers down the funnel. As long as you understand the importance of building trust and providing value first without asking for anything in return, you will achieve results from these paid traffic sources. And don’t get too caught up in expecting people to go down the funnel the way you want them to. The funnel doesn’t actually look anything like a funnel. It looks more like this:
