One question, how do I make a video about myself? There's nothing interesting about me. I don't think i have any good selling points that would make people interested.

Sounds like you need a therapy session. Everyone has a life (no matter how dismal it may seem to them) and people are naturally interested in others. The very fact that you are on here trying to improve your situation is of interest to someone out there.
What I mean is, people don't want to hear how I have a full time job, and only use the internet for some extra spending money. They want to get advice from people who make a ton of money, go on exotic vacations, have a fancy car, etc.  Or they want to learn about someone who has a ton of referrals and can show them how to do the same thing. I can't figure out how to build up my strong points in a video, if I can even find my strong points.

Now that makes more sense, but you are DEAD WRONG. Meeting someone who is just like them (full time job, need extra money) makes people realize they are not so different. They can identify with your problems and read your solution with real interest, then when they see how you actually started making even a few dollars, they can "Paint Themselves Into The Picture", which is what it takes to get anyone to take action. Pretty soon, you can add in your experience with getting lots of referrals and taking exotic vacations just like I do.

Believe me, when I started on the Internet at the end of 2000, the only advantage I had over you was lots of time. I just retired and was scared to death because I couldn't see how we could possibly enjoy retirement on what Social Security paid us, but I sure didn't want to go get another job. The thing most people overlook is that as little as an extra $300 a month can CHANGE YOUR LIFE!

Once that transformation starts to take place, it feeds on itself and expands at a much faster rate. You can NOT EVEN IMAGINE what that does for you, until it happens. It's still happening to me all the time and I have been doing this stuff for over 11 years now.

So stop sabotaging your future and start exercising with what you have now to get even more, it's really that simple. Just like a body builder didn't start out with six pack abs, you can build your marketing muscle one sit-up at a time. Just Do It!

The only way I do it is "Naturally". There are lots of contrived methods to increase views, but that's all they are is views and what I want is contacts. I do have a training course that I took that helped a lot, but most of it is just common sense. I think it comes down to a quote I once heard, "He who helps the most people, wins the game".

I've had no problem getting a decent amount of referrals, but not a single person has ever cashed out.  It kind of stinks since I've never made a YouTube video.  I suppose I could try, but I wouldn't even know how to get people to watch that either lol.

How many is a decent amount of referrals? I have over 800 and 4 cashed out this month, so it takes an OBSCENE amount, not just decent. You also need to realize that it sometimes takes months to cashout for some people, so you can't give up on them. I have had some months with 15 cashouts, which still seems small compared to the 800 who could have.

Okay, I have an embarrassing amount lol.  I can understand people eventually trailing off, but I kind of expected others to start strong like I did.  Seeing what happens with you, I definitely feel a bit better.  I guess since I was so eager to get going, I expected others to be too.  But maybe they'll catch on eventually.  In the meantime, I suppose I could give the YouTube video a whirl.  I wish this site was a little more mobile friendly.  A few of my referrals don't use a computer, so they signed up, but didn't do anything else really.  I never understood why until I tried to do the daily email from my phone and couldn't submit the information since it didn't have a link to click where it normally does on the computer.

If you would be willing to track me down and make contact, I can show you how to turn those "Phone Friends" into cash flow just by showing them how to blog from their phone. No experience necessary, just be living a life you can talk about, or willing to talk about someone else's.

Thanks, but there is a method to my madness and it pays off. I love helping people who are struggling just like I was when I started out 11 years ago, but the bottom line is they end up helping me back! What I did for 30 years before I retired 11 years ago was own a computer business that had nothing to do with the Internet. I sold and set up networks for auto dealers to sell cars with all over the country. In fact my head programmer is still selling our software today. It was fun, but very travel intensive, so that's why I love Internet Marketing so much, I am home a lot more.
