    I thought it was about time I gave something back. You can pretty much copy this method exactly as is and im 99.9% sure you will make some good $$$ from it.

    Ok so this one involves posting in the jobs section. Make up a company name for a modelling agency. Say that you are advertising for talent scouts. You are after people who can spot natural beauty and approach people from modelling jobs. Make up some benefits / salarry, work conditions blar blar.

    Now, when they email back you can setup a delayed auto response something along the lines of

    "Many thanks for your enquiry.

    We have had an overwhelming response in regards to our advertisement for the talent scout(s) position and because of this we would like all applicants to take a brief test for us to prove that they have an eye for natural beauty.

    We will require all applicants to give us examples of what they think natural beauty is. For this we will require you to signup to one of our partners dating sites (insert affiliate link here) and pick out 5 profiles that you consider to be model material.

    Please then email us back with the profiles you have chosen and will be in touch shortly to decide which candidates have made it through to the next stage.

    Kind Regards

    Blar blar blar."

    ----------------------------------

    Now, the best offers for this are going to be free signups for dating websites, the ones that usually pay out around $4 per free signup.

    I have not tried this myself yet as i have 101 other things going on but I thought id give it away and let someone else hopefully have some success with it :)

    I wouldn't try this with rude since they only give $1/signup. It's MUCH better with the CPA dating offers, they pay $3-5 and don't scare people with massive amounts of porn when they log on.

    OK, and what will the advertisers say when they notice ZERO conversions 'in the backend' ?

    Same deal you have with a lot of blackhat techniques, your essentially sending leads that wont often convert, its the nature of the business. Most times you will get away with it, if your overly concerned and plan on making a big campaign out of it then I would send some ppc traffic to it, some leads that actually WILL convert.
