    Hey guys!

    This is my take on a method, shared by Furious George. You can find it in the money making section, it's called "Easy way to make money, anyone can do this, if you do the work!". I have some original ideas and twists, which I'm going to show here, but all the credit should go to him. The thread is not a journey, it's a case study. I will simply work on the method, share my experiences here and try to prove his title right. If you're not familiar with the method I strongly suggest you read his thread - there are some gems shared in it.

    Ok, what have I done so far:

    Day 1

    1. I've bought some hosting and domain for 18 bucks - used some promo on a hosting forum, since I don't really care about reliability and speed etc. - I just need to host a 5 page website and use mail.

    2. I "bought" XSP ( hats off to you BHW! ) and ripped off some dude's sales page on WF, because I didn't felt like writing one of my own, edited the text to suit my needs better and plastered it in XSP . Created a contact us page, ToS, privacy etc. - just copied from some sites.

    3. Set robots txt to nofollow, noidex etc. - I don't want to create duplicate content issues for the WF dude and I don't plan to get any traffic from Google.

    4. Made 2 email accounts office and dmca - I'll send mails from the first, and send DMCA notices from the second.

    5. Added the domain mail to Paypal and created a Paypal button.

    6. Found 16 products on Clickbank so far. I'm gonna send the emails later.

    In summary around 4 hours of work and I'm ready to send the emails.

    I'll post my progress daily in the thread along with some changes to the original method. If you're interested in this method as well subscribe to the thread or post your experiences.

    p.s: Anyone wondering why I'm not posting in the original thread - It's because that's my personal let's say "journey" and i don't want to threadjack Furious George.

    I have tried and it works, it's really a time consuming method so I stopped soon. Good luck bro.

    Same here, but it could of very well been me not choosing the right niche of product to go after. I'll keep an eye on this, maybe get inspired to give it another go.

    Yes, I post it that way, so I can bypass the spam system.

    I don't choose any niche, I search warez on forums and check the price, if it's $30 to $80 I will send them an email. I don't know if I'm doing right, but I feel I can't ask for big amount if the price is under $30.

    I will try to sell them for $47, but willing to negotiate.
    BTW 20 emails send so far, more in queue.
    I'll update my progress later.

    RESULTS:

    Hey guys,

    Here is my report:

    emails sent: 250
    sales made: 0
    hours working on this : more than 40

    90% of the replays are something in the lines of "I'm aware of the sharing issues. I don't care about that"
    5% say they are spammed to death with this service offerings
    5% say they'll think about it

    In verdict I still believe this method is viable and money can be made with this. For example I have a few people I'm negotiating with right now and maybe I'll make a sale. However finding the products is extremely slow work and I honestly think my time is worth more. It seems a bit saturated at this point, however once again the method is legit for someone with A LOT of time on their hands.

    Your results are very discouraging, i wanted to try the method, but i have no time to spare.
    Are you going to invest more time into this ?

    I am not surprised that the method is saturated, Mr George's thread is viewed 19,712 times, probably 1-2% took action.
