    Hi Guys,

    I have been away for a while and not posted any methods etc, didn't get time to as I was busy setting up Social Signifier and MarketMongoose with my team and partners.

    Now that its all setup nicely and stabilized, finally I got some time at hand now and I am back on my usual track, ie raping social networks and making money with CPA :). This is something which I love to do in my spare time and I think I will keep doing it as long as the CPA industry is alive.

    So starting this week I shall be posting some stuff for marketing on Linkedin, Instagram, Twitter, Youtube and my usual love FB.

    I called this thread Area 51 as the goal is to share 51 money making methods in next 51 weeks on each network. I will create a separate thread for each of the other networks in coming weeks once I do some test and jot down my ideas.

    This thread is dedicated to linkedin marketing.

    So here is the method for this week.

    Linkedin is a great hangout place for developers, marketers and serious people, they don't fall for the usual freebie email/zip submits. So you have to think of a smarter way here.

    Here is what I am doing. I join some high trafficed popular groups and wait for the admin to allow me in. Make sure your account looks natural, fully profiled and get some fake recommendations on it via your owned other accounts to make it look more legit.

    Once they let me in I post a simple job post like this -

    Job Title - Application testers needed in exchange of linkedin Recommendations.

    Job Post - We need 100 testers who own an iOS device to test out our app. In exchange you will get nice a recommendation and also an endorsement. If we like your test report, we can offer you a full time job in our company at a later stage.

    ================================================================================
    Note in job offers, sometimes I post that I will pay them for the tests, but I don't :p, so it can be like a job scam, depending on your moral limits, you can craft the deceit in the Job post copy. I do it cause I sell their information to a job lead buyer and he mails them REAL job offers to compensate for my deceit, and for me it is an additional income in combination with the CPA income I make, so basically killing 2 birds with the same stone.
    ================================================================================

    Once you do this, wait for some days and people will start chiming in and flood you with requests, that they are interested and bla bla. If you post that you will pay, you will be attacked by a spam of 100s of wannabie companies looking to test shit for you,most of the time these are just sales/marketing guys of outsourcing companies and they are very easy to be trapped as they know nothing about CPA. They install the app with ease. If you don't post that you will pay, people still love to get their resume boosted on linkedin and this comes for a welcome call to them. To scale the income make sure you post to only active groups and post on more and more of them. I have gotten betters response rates when I post that its a paid test position, but again you may/may not do it.


    Now next step is find CPA offers which pay for app installs, mobile app installs. I have had good success with a few, if you need the names PM me, I am not posting openly to protect the reputation of the networks and the advertiser might not like we are spamming linkedin via them.

    Now make a google docs excel, with the CPA offers shortened with some url shorter and create some Test Fields which makes it look genuine. You can ask them to rate the UI, the features etc on a scale of 10. Just make that excel look genuine and you will convert on 95% of the responses.

    Bingo, that's it. Once you mail them back the sheet asking to test the apps and get back to you with responses, your job is done.

    This is the response copy I use
    =====================================
    Hello,

    Thanks for responding to our ad for software testers.

    Here are the steps involved, please follow them carefully.

    1. Please open this Google sheet which has list of the all the applications you need to download and test - GOOGLE DOC LINK HERE

    2. Install and test the apps and give your feedback in the sheet above, please mention the device ids correctly because we will check them in the backend and we can only pay you based on that.

    3. Make sure you make a copy of the above sheet and send your feedback back to us in that sheet, as we are sending it to multiple testers; you won?t be able to make edits to the above sheet.


    Thanks a lot for taking up this task and helping us.
    =====================================

    Some of them might have additional questions, you might need to answer them, I just ask my staff to do it :p

    Most offers pay like 1-2.5$ per install so you can make a lot of money, linkedin has over 200 million members and I think it has just started to explode.

    If you have any questions, post here or PM me. I will be answer when I find time.

    Next thread on Area 51 instagram coming up in some days.

    Thanks Guys.

    The thing is that advertisers won't be happy of your generated leads because they will only install/download. They pay you money to make moore money. Soon you will get blacklisted.

    If the app is good and useful, many of them will use it. Just choose the apps carefully which can have varied user demographics and you should be ok.

    Remember, advertisers make money by pushing app updates etc too. Apps CPA is totally a different ball game than traditional email CPA.

    Advertisers have broader ways to make money off the installs.

    Great method, nice to see something new that isn't just WP, FB or traffic generation.

    I have a linkedin profile but should I be using a fake one for this? How do I add fake friends to make it more credible?

    Use a fake one obviously, you don't spam using your real identity ever in life man. Create a professional looking fake profile.

    Yes, but they're are not right audience which they want to have. These are people to just install/download. Just my thoughts and experience.
    Sure you can earn money, but don't expect it last long.

    Blackhat CPA is to get leads by gaming them to believe that they are getting the world :).

    To make money of them is the onus of the advertiser, and so far they have been able to make money of the leads, thats how I have been getting paid since 2010.

    Just my thoughts and experience.

    No income is stable and long term, even a site ranking page 1 gets hit and you go to zero from hero.

    That's the fun in BH, keep innovating new methods and make money doing it as long as it works.

    This method is not scamming the advertiser, he is getting a valid genuine lead, now how to make money of it, is his headache not mine.

    And we can have a separate debate on how legitimate the cpa industry is and what to do and what not to do lol. If you any questions on the method I am happy to help.

    This looks like a very good method :) Added the little rep I have :p

    Anyways, I was wondering, is there anyway that Linkedin Dominator can be used for this method and make it more profitable?
