    I spotted a thread a week or so ago on here. The thread went into detail about using Ad f .ly to make some quick cash. You can find it here, I would say though, I found the numbers the OP claimed were far more than I was getting by spamming basically, I put my own twist on it!

    So here goes!

    The thread above DOES work but the numbers are crap. I found Instagram to be total rubbish so I hit Twitter as that's proper easy to 'game' by simply following marketers, SEOs, PR guys and anyone who sells a service.

    Instagram does work but you'll get reported pretty quickly but Twitter users, you seem to get away with it a bit more. Just use both. I haven't used on Facebook yet though, I'll probs not bother as its not enough for me to keep wasting a proxy or server space with so I'm showing here for some of you guys to rinse and twist

    Anyway here's what I'm doing
    • Have a couple of Twitter accounts that look like business owners.
    • Set up a custom domain with Ad f .ly
    • Once I've got domain working I used that link in my social BIOs
    • I then commented on anyone who mentioned SEO, Social media or Marketing related terms.
    • Target hashtags, big SEO accounts etc
    When I commented I simply said things like 'I'm on the hunt for a good SEO, do you think you could get in touch?' (spin and twist to your own needs)

    What I was finding is that whenever I contacted an SEO or marketer, I'd then get about 5 other people 'getting in touch' so I was getting 5 clicks to my referral link by publicly contacting one marketer. It's competitive as you know ha!

    The idea of my twist is that SEOs and services sellers will always check someone out if they feel they can get some cash from you/me. Let's face it, all they have to do is click your website and you get paid, it's as simple as that!!

    if you really want to be 'blackhat' get your custom link to direct back to Google ;) However, to stop/slow down people reporting my accounts I used a crappy WordPress theme with a basic contact form. I then used the emails as market research, keep tabs on the fancy auto-generated reports that SEOs pretend are custom SEO reports etc so its a double whammy for me, get paid to market research ;)

    nice twist.
    but I don't think there are thousands of these guys out there. Not enough for you to make some bucks anyways, am I wrong?

    $30 a week for nearly no work isn't big no lol. However it's a small way of getting cash for the noobs to kick start with, rather than following everyone who follows Trump or Lady Gaga lol

    Twist it

    well 30$ is quite a lot for many (including me) but that'll need 30k+ impressions / week.
    I don't know if we can really contact that many (or can we find that many SEO providers? )
    Please enlighten me

    Read the thread and work it out, put your own twist on it... I think I've detailed quite a bit for you to work on and the original thread I linked too gave quite a detailed step by step

    Unless you're looking for me to set up your server, accounts, proxies and put the kettle on?

    lmao. nah not at all. I'm already using the original thread's method and making some money with it.
    what I'm talking about is that waiting for business owners to contact you won't get as much traffic as contacting potential customers/ interested people.
    That's it mate ^^

    My OP isn't about getting customers. It's about ways of getting people to click my link so I get paid

    you have applied a good twist to my method. i use clickbaits to make users more curious about my posts and then I get them to click my links. you can try your method by twisting a little bit more and posting links on classified sites like CL. There are lots of ways to twist this method as you don't need targeted traffic for it.

    NO offence on your claim by the way :) Just your method didn't really work for me so I twisted with my own touch

    how often do you have to renew the offer? in other words, how soon do people stop clicking your link?

    Here comes everyone to copy your method word for word, oversaturate it, and make it less effective. Not big money anyway, but my point is to encourage noobs to find their own twists to these methods.
