    I don't have too much time to film my own video. I will consider this in the future. Now I am mainly contacting YouTubers directly.

    So you're looking for people to film videos for you to post on your channel? What subject/niche?

    Free traffic will always be king. I've played around with paid traffic in the past, and can only think of one offer that actually made me money. But even then, I was limited on how much traffic I could purchase so I was unable to scale my campaign.

    No, I ask them to post videos on their own channels as they have more fans. Few people will find the video if it is posted on my own channel. Sometimes it is a dedicated video, and sometimes it is a short mention in the video.

    I believe that in the beginning paying for traffic is quite smart, this way you can build your audience, etc. Later on, you can rely more on the free traffic, which will help you understand whether your on the right track with your business.

    Finding success with paid traffic is always limited by how much you can reasonably purchase. If your available buying power is restricted then the best use for paid traffic is for testing your copy I believe.

    And whether the traffic is "free" or paid your knowledge of the methods for putting that traffic to best use always determines how much success you have with it.
