    Is it a profitable business or hard to break into... any experiences? How about using incentive offers as main traffic resource?

    No it shouldn't be too hard really ...

    Put a free hosting up, submit it to free hosting portals and once the traffic starts pouring in, you'll just have to manage your bandwidth.

    You'll offer your users upgrade option to $0.95 trial hostgator .. and also make money off ads put in those sites you host..

    It's a workable blueprint for hosting affilliates that rack in anywhere from 2k to 10k a month

    ---------
    method 2
    ---------
    pay for targeted traffic

    -----------
    method 3
    ----------
    offer to help people out with installing their wordpress, in exchange for them signing up to hosting services ..

    Yep the freehosting method has been around for quite a few years and is still profitable. I knew what it was as soon as I glanced at the page so I didnt actually read it and perhaps the guy added this in but upselling paid hosting is not the only revenue model from a free site.

    The people who typically look for free hosting (besides link spammers) are newbies to internet marketing and are trying to get a site up for little to no cost.

    These people are targets for hundreds of products, services, and memberships which you can earn a serious flood of commissions on.

    very true .. they might be interested in making money with their sites ... and you should build a product for them ..

    You could drive affiliate sales to money making products, but the real profit is in making your own and keeping people paying you a monthly fee for your services, upsell them for a high quality product that has a $1000 price tag ..

    Lots of twists here ..

    Dan, if you know programming you can use Yahoo's API to scrape answers in any category...if not, you can use
    hXXp://www. icomotion. c0m/ico-content/

    There is a working copy in the downloads section
