    Hey Guys,

    It's been ages since the last time I've posted a money making method over here, so I thought I'd give it a go.

    Quick disclaimer: as usual, I'm not going to spoon-feed anybody, always suggest people to NOT use any methods shared on a public forum as-is but instead add their own twists to make them unique (and profit far more), and I won't reply to any questions via PM (I'll happily reply if the question is asked within the thread so others could benefit as well).

    With that out of the way, let's get started :)

    Method

    This method involves creating tiny, simple sites, content locking them (putting a content gateway to your site so that the user has to complete a CPA offer to view the content) and getting targeted traffic from Facebook.

    I'm not by any means claiming that the method is anything new or unique - in fact, hundreds (if not more) people are doing it on daily basis, but it's still far from getting saturated and one of the easiest content locking methods out there to profit from.

    Overview

    What the method is all about is grabbing the latest celebrity gossip story that is out there, creating a very simple website based on the story (don't worry - you don't need any content or anything fancy, if you know how to use WordPress then that's quite enough), putting up a Facebook page promoting the gossip story and profiting!

    Step 1 - Find the story / stories to target

    This is by far the easiest part.

    There are so many celebrity gossip stories out there that all it takes is a quick look at a random celebrity gossip blog and you've got your story!
    In this example, we'll use "Rumer Willis And Jayson Blair's Miami Beach Date" which came out yesterday.

    P.S. Always bear in mind that SEX SELLS. I.e. if there's a hot story of a celebrity showing off a boob or someone grabbing someone else's backside etc. then these are your favourite stories!

    Step 2 - Create a Website

    Now I won't teach you how to create a website but the kind of site you need is really something that anyone on BHW should be able to do in 20 minutes tops!

    All you need is a simple, one-page website with nothing but two images (about the story) on the front page. That's it!

    Domain wise, you can either stick the site up to one of your existing domain names or just go get a .info domain name for $1.

    Step 3 - Create your Content Locker

    You then want to create a content locker to put up on your newly created website.

    There are lots of options out there but I obviously suggest Content Lock Pro (a shameless self plug here :)) With that said, though, the method will work with any content locker out there, but you'd generally want to stay away from those offered directly by CPA networks (such as Blamads, Adscend, Adwork, etc.) as using a 3rd party locker will give you much more freedom and you also won't have to disclose your traffic source to the network.

    Make your content locker as simple as possible, and have it simply say "Please enter your e-mail address on one of the following pages to view the rest of the images on this site").

    Step 4 - Facebook Page

    Your next step is to set up a Facebook Group. The only thing you have to bear in mind is to use the title of the story (or something similar to the title) as the name of the group.

    Step 5 - Traffic

    There are obviously a lot of different ways to drive traffic (just have a look around on BHW!) but the easiest here is to shop around a bit right here on BHW and buy a service (or a few!) offering "everything facebook", i.e. group members, likes, etc.

    Just make sure to first check out the reviews as you want the service to be good!

    Now, in some cases you end up with 100% bot traffic that won't generate you a single click, but very often you'll get real likes and your story goes viral very quickly!

    IMPORTANT! Because of this, it's extremely important that you don't give up after your first page hasn't taken off as expected. You can easily have 5 failures but if the 6th page you create goes viral then this will EASILY pay for the time you spent on the first five pages, plus much more. It's also important to be popping those sites out on ongoing basis, as one gossip story only stays popular for a limited amount of time.

    That's it!

    It's as simple as that!

    For full disclosure let me say that I'm not using this method myself any longer, not because it doesn't have massive potential but simply because it's relatively work-heavy, but I still believe it's a FANTASTIC way for beginners to go out there and make their first few grand that they can then invest in more passive projects.

    I've been suggesting this method to many CLP buyers and so far have seen some great feedback, indicating that the method still works wonders, even though it's nothing new.

    Bonus Tip

    When setting up your content locker, MAKE ABSOLUTELY SURE that you add as many international offers as possible. Often times, Facebook traffic will be from many very different countries and you don't want to miss out on all of the non-US traffic by only having US offers within your locker!

    More to come ....

    There are a few extremely powerful additions that can be added to this strategy and can increase your profit 10-fold, but I'll be posting about these in a week or two ;)

    Take care!
    Bryan

    Awesome share, thanks for this. I've always wanted to try Facebook monetizing too. Right now i'm not working at any CPA network, since i'm a total noob on the field and i keep listening that they don't accept newbies.

    But it seems like a pretty solid method. My question here is about getting those FB stats... Do you know any Service that you could recommend? For the likes, votes, members and stuff like that? I know there's a lot here and out there, but i ask for one that you could personally recommend upon your experience or the one of someone you know.

    Thanks in advice

    You dont have to tell them, that you might be a so called "newbie".
    You cant get accepted, if you dont even try to get accepted. :)

    Acceptance wise - take a look at the CPA section of this forum. There are some very decent "how to get accepted" guides over there, one of them is also a sticky if I remember right.

    Facebook service - I'm afraid there isn't a single one that I can recommend as this kind of services come and go all the time and what was good two months ago may well not deliver now. Your best bet is to take a look at many different services and make sure there are *recent* positive reviews.

    So the only way your getting traffic is by purchasing "likes" to your facebook page you created? thats it?

    Rather than only purchasing likes I'd suggest to look for "everything facebook" services, where you get likes, wall posts, etc. etc.

    There's also countless of other ways to drive traffic to this kind of stories (other social networks, video sharing, etc.) and tons more if you go the extra mile and add more content to the pages you're creating / alter the news stories.

    It's all down to creativity. There are LOTS of ways how this basic method can be twisted.

    Love the method. Just a few questions..firstly, if I made up a false rumour, would that get me into legal trouble and/or trouble with my AM? Secondly, right now, I can't afford to invest in CLP BUT would most CPA companies get angry with FB traffic? Excuse the noobishness, I've been into web design for the past two years, but I'm trying to explore other methods.

    If you made up false rumours then you definitely want to cover your tracks very well.

    As for CPA networks and Facebook traffic, most networks/advertisers indeed donĀ“t like this so you have to either pick your offers carefully and/or hide the sources of your traffic well.

    Cool. And can Blogger be used for this or is it vital to get a domain?

    @ StrictlyBiznez : Blogger is 3rd party too. You can't install what you want in it or you will have to use javascript or html.

    Buy a cheap .info domain name and a cheap hosting account, this is way better

    Either that, or get a free subdomain. As NedieNed pointed out, Blogger (and to my knowledge hosted wordpress) can't be used as it doesn't support JavaScript which is required for any content locker to work.

    The power of this method is that you can drive traffic from different social media sites not just Facebook. As long as you have a fully functional content locker, then the sky is limit.

    Correct :)

    Getting traffic is largely down to your own imagination, and the more creative you are the best you will do!

    I also got a question about this method in another thread which I'm replying to here to keep the other thread on topic:

    Setting up the Facebook group isn't difficult at all. This takes literally minutes once you've gotten used to how it works.

    I'm going to post the "part 2" some time late this week or the beginning of next when I get a chance!

    Definitely a very nice way to boost traffic, yep :)

    You need to be very careful though as Facebook is cracking down hard on like-jackers and most like-jacking scripts out there seize to work soon after they're released.
