    I am about to open your run-of-the-mill GPT site. Do surveys, get steam codes. So on and so forth. I am about 1-2 weeks away from opening into beta. There is a referral system about to be in place. Refs will make 10%. I would like to know if anyone has any effective ideas on advertising the site. I assume SEO won't be INCREDIBLY useful but will absolutely play a part. With the high saturation, SEO is kind of on the back of my list, with whitehat SEO absolutely being plausible.

    My main thing is I need to be able to launch and just get it out there into the hands of some people. I am going to have a fantastic video right on the front page and I feel like I will hook a good amount of people. I just need them to see it.

    People think that GPT sites are just a big scam nowadays so even if it is legit it won't take off or it would be very difficult to get people to trust your site.

    I own a GPT site and it's only been going downhill for years now. Sorry to say :(

    Success is possible if you put a good spin on the normal GPT site though. Good luck!

    Well I am going to be very legit about it. The only true issue is, my site will specialize in giving out codes for giftcards and netflix, steam games and such. No testimonial pictures for me :(. So I have to figure out something with that.

    Your best bet is to scalp new members from other similar sites that will let you send a competing offer (helps to have a good spin of your own as said above) and take their active members. Buy guaranteed unique visitors and take in the active users of that program.

    If helps if you tweak your lander for the traffic and even better to get the site owner to endorse your site. Asking never hurts.

    Yahoo Answers,CL, but like others said, market is kind of saturated right now, I tried it with a twist, targeting 18+ and it didn't go very well....if you want some unique tips, check out mine GetPaidToSocialMedia(dot)com,

    Well guys, I just opened into beta. Got three signups but it seems as if none of them did surveys or invited anyone. Still trying to find ways to get members.

    Have you tried advertising on websites like TBN, HF, CN? Those are all websites filled with people willing to do some GPT work for a few bucks.

    If you have no idea what you're talking about, PM me and I'll reply back (when I get 15 posts) with the links that I'm referring to. They're not the same types of forums, so mods, please don't think I'm trying to advertise competing marketing websites.
