    So I've been here 4, almost 5, months now. I've been doing tons of reading and steadily experimenting with different methods to see what works for me. I finally managed to start making money (about $600).

    It's mainly through pokerstars, I have family and friends who are into gambling and use it as their pass-time. So, I suggested setting up their accounts for them. Luckily, they have friends who have friends all using my marketing code.

    I know this isn't going to be reliable income, and I was wondering if you guys had any ideas of ways to scale it up hopefully without getting banned.

    It's currently my only method that's produced results so far. But I do have a few other methods I'm still currently waiting to cultivate and produce income. They just take time :\

    Thanks!

    If you will get $100 per signup. You can ask your friends if they know other friends, if they sign-up you will pay your friend $50. So instead of you are the affiliate, they become your affiliate.

    Or make it up like this, if you find a friend(s) who likes gamling also. You can see that if they send you a friend(s) they will get $50 add to there pokerstars account.
    Or you go and see them. And then pay them the $50 for the reffered friend.

    And if your AM, if any is asking where your sign-ups is comming from you can see them that you use email marketing and viral stratagies.

    But you still need to lower down your CTR and your eCPM so you won't get red hands pointing to you. Just buy some cheap traffic and reffer friends, and your friends needs to reffer there friends.

    Hope this post was helping, if so you know where to find the Thanks button :p

    I pretty much am already doing this, except offering $25 per sign-up. As I said, this isn't the only method I'm doing, I just don't want to risk the account getting banned since it's where I'm getting paid the most. I just don't have any other ideas on ways to scale it up beyond what I've already done. It'll get tapped out eventually, and there are only so many people among friends and family that need accounts.

    I've also got several websites (which I'm building links slowly), and autoblogs set up. I submit articles to AC, self written and otherwise. I post on craigslist, and have several campaigns from other affiliates starting up.

    I appreciate that you actually read my post :rolleyes:. I was just asking for input on possible ways (if there are any) to scale it up. Nothing I've read so far really would work in this case. I'm not begging to be spoon fed and I putting in the effort which hopefully will be fruitful.

    This just happens to be working right now, and I know that there must be a way to squeeze more out of it while it's working well.

    Poker's the most easiest way to make money because the companies pay out big to affiliates, you just have to be convincing. Go to poker chat rooms and set up a quick website with a convincing ebook which you give for free - with your aff link in it - you can find loads of poker ebooks and just edit them a bit, and then go to poker chat rooms and even twitter with the keyword "poker" and give your ebook to them for "FREE!" - this'd be automatic for you.

    Write a short report on how to make money with pokerstars.
    Give the ebook away for free to anyone who signup for pokerstars through your link. Also include your affiliate link in the ebook and give it away to your friends.
    If the book is well written it will go viral and bring in more sales.

    wow, thanks a lot guys. Once I have one written, I should be able to combine it with a few of my other methods that have decent traffic

    I appreciate the advice! :)

    I would be just be aware that offline marketing can be very short lived (as can anything i guess) but since you are marketing to only people you know you are limited and will basically run out of leads. You should try using craigslist or some kind of promoting that doesn't require tons of knowlege since you are obviously new, as am I. Of course you can't just say "i'll give you $25 to sign up here" on a CL post but you know, you can probably twist it some way. Just a thought, also there are tons of CL guides here

    Yea, it's very obvious. That is why I mention it isn't reliable and will be tapped out. That is the main purpose I posted so I could get some advice.

    I have fairly decent writing ability, so I'm gonna put a twist on the ebook suggestion. My other methods are showing promise, and with time I won't need to rely on this anymore :>
