    Hi Im after some advice please.

    I have been making a bit of money with friends and family over the last 2 years through referral splitting with them and its worked out quite nicely. Since exhausting that avenue I have tried subscribing to various forums, posting freeads etc for which I have also managed to pickup a handful of people who have signed up.

    I am either getting lots of views and personal messages but not many people taking me up on the deal or the forums just scrub my thread as they class it as advertising or not very relevant. I guess my question is how can I turn these people views, pms etc into real hard cash - am I doing something wrong????

    Thanks

    OK so sounds like you are getting family to sign up for offers that cost less than initial outlay and splitting commissions?

    if so, then maybe this is something you should think about doing offline. Talk to more friends and get then to talk to their friends etc. Build yourself a private forum/portole or even a cash back site. Then get try and incentivise them to keep gettign more and more of thier friends involved, and before you know if you will build up a good solid and trusted community which you will then be able to open to public and make good money from.

    Remember Posting on other forums and sites is pretty much like 'Cold Calling', take up and trust is always low!

    depends on your deal, over priced service or something a person slightly suspects might be scam there not going to convert, high dollar transactions require you to call them on the phone to relieve their concerns, so long as you are legitimate, you have nothing to hide from getting to know your customer. Most people want services done for them and are not willing to lift a finger but are willing to pay to have someone else do their work for them.

    This is the case you are right. However I dont ask for any money up front the referral I moffer are for sports books etc, so you deposit directly into website accounts of household names. Im not sure if its the way Im wording my ads? Im being totally up fron in my threads without going overboard so that I dont get picked up by the referral companies
