I play these a lot for the first prize of one or two seats to a tournament with real money prize pools. I mostly only play the .10 or .15 cent buy ins but I'm finding myself on the losing end way more then I care to admit lol, any advice on how I can make it to the second/final table and walk away with a win on a more consistent basis? Any advice would be more then appreciated, thanks.

Play more aggressively, take more flips and put the pressure on. All sounds obvious but shootouts reward aggression.

If these tournaments you can not win victories try your hand at other kinds of tournaments.

Thanks for the info, the aggression makes sense because those are the players that seem to beat most often, and as far as trying other tournaments and stuff, with my very small bankroll, these .15-.10 cent buy ins toward higher money buy in tournaments are very slim pickings around pokerstars I've found, I'm not doing too bad at mtt, since I started just a few months ago I've managed to bring my percentage from the bottom 25% to mostly on average better then the top 20-30%. So I am improving lol. I'll try the aggression tactic consistently for a little bit, if I can't pull it off, then I'll take the second advice and just stay away from them lol Thanks again for the advice, much appreciated.
