    Hello, This is basically not a trick or hack/crack. I am sure many would have tried it already but I am writing this to share an experience only. This is a pure white hat technique that may or may not work in different cases. I just tried it one time and it worked. The idea works on tools like WP Plugins, themes etc but may be tried with other things too but digital products only.

    I badly needed the pro version of social locker for wordperss. I had free version already but did not have money to buy the pro one. I simply wrote an email to the developer that was available on sales page, told hime that I want to review his plugin on my website related to Internet Marketing and showed him the link to it. I said that pro version will help me write a better and detailed review of their product. Astonishingly he did not take more than a few hours to reply that email with a license key to pro version. My website only just started 2 months back and has about 10 articles in it. It is not recieving any traffic also. Of course I reviewd his plugin in depth. Wrote a 1000+ word article on that.

    Few of you might be thinking that that is too much of work, but no that was not. A thousand words article for a plugin of $24, it doesn't get better than that. All you guys have to do is be honest and do what you promise to do.

    1. Find something you really need (A digital product)
    2. Email the developer/seller (Be Honest)
    3. Write review or make a video for YT or anything you can do good

    I dont know if that was all luck. Will surely try this again with any other product and get back to you guys.

    Great Advice, thank you.
    For experience when your website is well related to some niche and you have great reviews on it, they will contact you.
    Also the affiliate summit is a great place where to meet lots of developers.

    Nice method, but why do you have an IM website if you're not making money for the plugins you need? Don't get me wrong, but I wouldn't teach people how to make money if I wasn't making any. Anyway, thanks for the share, it's a nice and whitehat method that won't hurt the developers in any way, kudos to you for that :)

    I found messaging the people who makes some of the plugins/other tools is very helpful. I remember I purchased a Poker movie a while ago the day it got released, and I messaged the creators how incredible it was and they sent me a bunch of unreleased footage (Like deleted scenes) months before they posted it to the website. This was also the day they released it so I am sure they were busy!! So that is always something to keep in mind that people forget. Thanks for the reminder friend!!

    Thanks everybody for responses. I never said that I never made money or that I dont know ways to make money. There were times when I made $200 a day. Just some rough days goin on buddy.

    Nothing new here, but thanks for sharing OP. This method is a win-win, as you get to potentially get the tool for free and actually create a good relationship with the vendor that could be useful for future gigs.

    Well, without knowing about the OP, I can only assume any of the following,

    • OP is a penny-pincher.
    • OP's website is too new to make money (or OP just started IM again)
    • OP may understand the techniques but is unwilling to implement them (I'm like this with black hat SEO, although I usually run a quick test on the method and make a little bit of money with it before I write about it, just to make sure it works and I understand it).
