    Seriously do not flag this. I lost my job over 3 months ago!
    How could you not help me? It won't cost you ANYTHING but some time! Seriously help a guy out! I am not selling ANYTHING!
    Can you help me out by filling out a couple of these offers for me?
    I need to fill out 10 a day at least! I still have car payments!
    Do not flag this please!
    Tell your friends to help me too okay?

    Well what approach should I take? I am struggling here....3 months and I have made very little online. My goal to start it just 300-400 a month. It would be a INSANE relief you have no idea.

    That is a really interesting idea. I would suggest sending them to a blog and having them do one offer. They may just feel a little pity and fill out an offer.

    in this method you just look like a begger. No one likes beggers, people would just get annoyed and not fill anything out. People are only interested in stuff that somehow benefits them.

    Yeah I'd have to agree, your method is way off track.

    You gotta build that since of them getting what "they want" not what "you want".

    But in a since, it's what you want -*money*. Throw in a few ways to turn that one visitor into muliple leads through various networks whether it be follow up email/list, ebook with links to other things related, trail of bread crumbs to get what they want and you got a pretty good recipe. Then scale whats working, automate.....

    Being or sounding desperate is not a way to make sales. People can smell it and they run the other way. If I had seen that ad I would have flagged it just to put you out of your misery.

    You need to act and market your offer like it is the SHIT!! That people would be CRAZY not to get in on it. I didn't look at your offers but from the posts I read they didn't seem to great. It's been written here a million times. Find a HUNGARY niche and give them what they want. NOT the other way around. And please...don't ever run an ad like that again :D

    Good Luck,
