    Seeing too many getting into content locking and ppd lately, including myself, I found a blog post on a site listing out some ideas that can be used with content lockers.


    Content Locking Ideas


    Entertainment and Video Sites

    Everybody wants to see the latest videos and viral clips online. Throw up a nice video hosting website with a unique template and find some exclusive legal content. Gain traffic via social media or SEO and lock the videos with your gateway.

    Instructional Videos


    Play the guitar? Good at computer games? Make some instructional videos on "how to" and post them on YouTube. Only post the first video and then link back to the rest of the video on your site. Content lock the follow up videos.

    Software Downloads

    Either acquire or create some software that user will want to download. Make a site explaining all the benefits etc but lock the download link with a CPA gateway.

    Templates


    If you can make templates for Wordpress etc then make some nice ones. List them on template sites but lock the download file with a content lock. Also you can include the content lock within the code of the template so when the downloaded installs it, it will have your lock on the page.

    File Conversions

    If you can program or have someone who can, why not make a site that will offer users conversions from file to file. They input the file and click the convert button where they are taken to another screen to fill out a CPA gateway to download their converted file.

    Free Trials

    Say for example you own a gaming website or a product that users will sign up for. Offer them a free trial and then in return for the full version they must fill out some incentive offers. Maybe make them do one a month in return for the full product.

    Help and Advice

    Have an expert field? For example can you program? Make a support ticket system or forum where by you offer free support but they must first complete a gateway to submit the ticket or thread.

    Memberships

    I was the first ever to do this, but if you have a website or forum whereby you can offer an exclusive membership package for example VIP with extra features. You will get far much more activity and earnings if you offer it to them for free in exchange for filling out some offers on a gateway styled like your website/forum.

    URL Shortener

    If you can acquire a URL shortener or a similar script, offer it for free but on the point of the user getting the result they want, lock it with a gateway.

    Write an eBook

    It doesn't matter what the niche is but you can also build a list of it. Write a book about something you enjoy for example gaming. Post it on a website with a opt in page and then set a password for the book that a user will have to complete a content locking gateway to see. You can choose which offers to show depending on your books niche.

    Hot Trends

    Find out whats trending and write your own variation of the news or get the video etc everyone wants to see. Place it on a unique website and lock the "View Video" link.

    Cheats and Codes

    There is a huge audience and big traffic in gaming online. Make a site dedicated to game cheats and codes and describe them as much as possible. Make the user want the cheat that bad that they will be willing to convert an offer on your gateway.

    Guides and Tutorials

    Write some guides or tutorials and place them on a website. Place each chapter on a separate page. Now give the user a few chapters free until they are hooked in and then lock the next chapters with your gateway.

    YouTube

    People search for EVERYTHING on YouTube, so if it's something that people want, it's something you can lock. Create a video with keywords related to the search subject and then place a link in the footer to the answer, locked!

    GPT

    Get Paid To sites are great for earning with content locking. Users are rewarded with points/prizes in exchange for filling out incentive gateways.

    Torrents

    Download the latest videos and music and convert them into torrents. Then zip them but add a password to the file. Then zip the two files with another file explaining you can get the password at this URL. Place the password on the URL but with a content locker on top.

    Support

    If you have a site with regular members, offer free support to them via your support tab. In order for them to see the support reply they must first fill out a CPA gateway.

    Graphics and Stock images

    Do you graphic design? Offer free graphics on forums in exchange for customers filling out incentive CPA offers on your gateway. Alternatively throw up a site with some icon sets or free stock graphics etc, give them a few free but content lock the download button for the full sets on your site.

    Adult/Porn

    Always check that the offers can be used for adult traffic. Build or buy a porn site with traffic and lock some of the more exclusive videos with a gateway. Also you can offer full membership in return for them filling out offers.

    Donations

    A lot of sites have donation tabs on their pages to ask users to donate for their work. Although i think its tacky, instead why not have a donations tab where by a user can donate by filling out and incentive offer. This way they don't even need to spend money!


    Buy Websites

    One of the best ways to get started in content locking is to buy bargain websites that aren't being monetized for content locking. You can easily find sites on Flippa and other popular forums etc that are already receiving traffic and haven't been using CPA gateways. Just because another person is selling a site it doesn't mean you can't earn from it. Most people don't even think about gateways. Be on the look out for sites you can add a gateway to at some point in the users transactions and bank!

    Just thought sharing to get the newbies started.

    I recommend Adworkmedia CPA network, they have all tools needed to set up your campaigns. The downside of going with a CPA network is that you're limited to their offers, but I talked to a manager and he said they're always on hunt for more offers for the publishers.

    Promotion of what? I was looking for ideas the other day and found this, I thought it was helpful and wanted to share it.. I removed any links and shared the vital data but at the same time not taking any credits. The links at the bottom are bhw compliant.

    I just banked hard on the Final Fantasy 14 beta release ;)
    The video game niche is very profitable.

    Leverage folks, I have a friend who level his character to 25 in 3 games and is a total fanatic about MMO games.
    I had him write up a guide and I paid him of course. Stuck this on a content locked page and voila. The game is officially released today I believe.
    He has a passion for the game, I have a passion for making money, this game is going to be very popular so I see a lot of money coming from this.

    Very nice list. Some advertisers don't like these leads though as they don't always back out. Best be careful!

    I advice to always talk to the AM, no matter what you are doing because if they don't like it, you're not gonna like what they'll do either. Don't let out too much, just see how far you can stretch it.

    I've recommended a network at the end of OP, check it out and let me know if you're having any problems (approval, getting started etc.).

    Great share mate. However, some advertisers prefer not to go with these leads. Useful though.

    Nice of you sharing this with us. For those complaining I see absolutely no self promotion going on here.
