    Targeted people: kids and adults
    Technique: premium SMS- hit and run


    Sign up at http://fort_u_mo.com (remove _)

    For_tumo is premium SMS provider with which you can earn money when user sends SMS from their mobile phone in order to get something.

    Fort_umo, of course, doesn't allow scams, but there is a way to cheat that. Create one simple page which looks clean and simple, but still professional. Write something like "To get password, please sent A1B1C1 to 12345". When users see that, they will write A1B1C1 and sent to 12345- you then earn money. After they have sent the SMS, they will receive returning SMS with message "your password is XXX"

    How should I sell?
    I would suggest you to buy .com for each website in order to look legit. Don't bother too much in making those websites because they won't be used more that 2 weeks. Install some tracker so you know when and how many user were/are online.

    What should I sell?
    You will sell e-books. That won't be those fat and big books adult people used to read- those books are only 2-3 pages, but if you write then nicely with pictures they should be more that 5-6 pages. Remember, we are targeting young people who can pay and who are not very familiar with online books (kids 10-14 y.o) and adult people (over 30 y.o).
    Write a book, or hire a writer for 10$ about anything that you think is popular. Here is my list: tutorials how to hack games, penis enlargement, breast enlargement, protect your kids from swine flu, increase your mussels how to learn very fast, how to loose/gain weight, how to kiss...
    Protect your e-book with an password and upload it to server.

    Don't know anything about the subject?
    Hire a freelancer writer. Or if your left side of the brain is develop, from 5 youtube videos and 10 texts you have read you can create an e-book in under 2 hours. You make nice package :)

    How to advertise?
    I would suggest to buy adwords and fb vouchers. You can get for 15$ 130$ worth online credits you can use to advertise on FB and Google. I would suggest using FB ads, because you can target very precisely, for ex. if you are selling how to protect your kids from swine flu target people who are engaged and who are over 30 years old.

    How much can I earn?
    Let's say that per day you bring 1000 people to your website. 10% will buy, thats 100 sales. If you earn per sale 2$, that's 200$ with an ease.

    If you are too greedy, write in ToS that users must send 2 SMS in order to get 2 passwords (1 is useless without the other)

    If you want to target globally, put an option for the users to complete 1 or 2 CPA offer if they don't want to sent SMS.

    What will visitor see?
    When visitor comes to your website they will see a description about your product (you describe it really good and convincingly). They will send SMS, get returning SMS with password, download book, enter password and view it.

    What will FRTmo see your main website you wrote that is your main source of income. On that website they won't find anything illegal so you are OK.

    --

    I am tired now, and I made few mistakes, but if you have any question ask me. Also, this is my first tutorial :)

    By "nothing" in thread title I meant books that don't contain too much information, but they bring profit to you.

    Surfer sends SMS to Fortumo, and Fortumo charges that SMS (prices vary 0.5-5$). You earn 30-50% commission from every SMS. There is Fortumo API so you can create random password generator which will protect password-protected website page.

    This seems like an interesting method. Did you mention anywhere on your webpage that you get charged x amount to send the SMS?

    I didn't use this method.

    I didn't use this method :)
    You need to write on all of your pages where you sell the price, but I think it can be avoided. On your main page post all regularly (price is stated...), but you can risk and on your sales page (which you won't show to fortumo) just write that is is cheaper than it actually is. But it is a big risk.

    Well, Fortumo must contact all mobile providers to pay them the money you earned using their premium numbers. Then fortumo takes small part (2-3%) and gives you rest.

    It really seems easy but i don't think its that simple. They make it look nice and easy when its going to take eternity to yield.

    Money can definately be made on fortumo. I tried a very disgraceful method involving job ads that Im now ashamed of, only thing is I made a few hundred quid but it took 5 months to actually see cash from the venture and I lost about a quarter of my original sum due to claim backs from customers complaining to their service provider. Be carefull with sms in the UK, you can really get into serious trouble if you don't adhere to the ofcom standards plus fortumo will fine your ass big time too, decent method all the same though thanks.
