    This is an experimental idea.

    Do you know what a MMORPG(Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game or MMO) is? WoW is very popular one and so is Age of Conan, you can also consider Second Life an MMO. They're all online games, in SL(Second Life) you've probably heard of people eWhoring for money but that's not exactly possible in WoW or Age of Conan.

    So if eWhoring isn't possible in these games how are we suppose to make money with them? Simple. Sell in-game currency. You might be asking " WTF?! How do we get that in mass amounts?" Easy. Use other companies. Now you're probably saying " I still don't see how we make money." That's because you probably don't know about sites like MMOBay(dot)net, they're like Ebay but for MMOs.

    I'll explain this step-by-step, so read carefully.

    First, you'll need to become an affiliate with a site like SwagVault(dot)com. There are hundreds of other sites you can use.

    Second, Make an account with a site like MMOBay(dot)net. There are a few other sites like this. Google "mmo auctions" if you want the others.

    Now that you have your 2 accounts you'll be selling gold from the site you became affiliates with on the sites like MMOBay(dot)net. You may be thinking "I still don't see how this works." If that's what you're thinking then read on.

    There are a few ways of doing this but I'll only explain one of them. So now that you have your affiliates account go to the auction site and see what games you can sell in-game currency for. WoW is the hugest one so we'll go with that. Go back to your affiliates site and see what increments they sell their gold in and prices. Once you find that out go and post up auctions with the same increments and price. Now you're probably wondering "How do I make money if I set my auctions prices to the same as my affiliate company?" Well, since we're sticking with one method here make all your auctions Buy It Now.

    Now this is the part that kind of concerns me because you'll need somebody else to do it for you. Whenever you make a sale you'll need somebody to use your affiliate link to make a purchase and use the info provided by the buyer. This is just the bare bones of this method so if you want a more full-proof method you'll have to get creative or I might post it here if enough people want it.

    :: bump :: this method has some potential. especially if your gold distributor is reliable.

    If you were in IRC you could have gotten some more info about this and a way to help increase sales.

    its cool i doubt ill be doing this. im involved in a lot as it is but was just bumping it because if your G supplier is good there is potential. Here is something else you could also do.. Create dummy WoW accounts and create an auto it script that spams the game. You could also spam guild forums.

    excellent idea. an incentive site where you cash in credits for wow gold would go viral fast.

    who wants to help JV this? just registered the perfect domain, have some scripts available, and i have been an officer in a popular guild on Illidan for a long long time. i even run the guild site.

    :: edit :: will need someone with enough knowledge to help get it all setup and running smoothly as I have so much going on that I won't have time to manage it all. I think maze will be in this JV as well.

    I used to do something similar apart from the fact that I was phishing WoW and just sold the gold off at around $27 for 1k g. I would help but don't have WoW installed anymore and internet in NZ sucks like hell... But if there's any other way to help out, just give me a hoot :)

    I used to do Neopets stuff like that. I had the site neopetsadoption or something like that..and would sell the stuff there using PPC for advertising. It actually worked out well - there's a site where you can buy it for say 10.00 for 1million, and then you sell it on the site for 20 or 21. Double your money.

    This is an interesting concept. So you're aiming at affiliate commission only or commission+spread?

    hehe, have been doing this same thing for over 3 years now =] ..... don't just think WoW think all games in one incentive site...gold, game cards, free console games, custom orders....yada yada..... outsource support (which there is a ton) and you have a nice 5-10k+ per month model ;)

    How have you managed to supply all of that, westee? Do you have an automated system? Also, how does it even out when they're just filling out a CPA form and you're giving them game cards, games, etc?

    With this, just affiliate commission but you can change it up with a little creativity.

    I might of been misunderstood

    1) find 10 CPA no CC offering 5 to 7 dollars per lead

    2) use a smart script that verifies the lead after a person fill them out then takes them to a final form that captures their character name, sever ect

    3) buy the 300 gold for a bout $15 from X site and give to character

    if you average $6 cpa offers you should make bout $45 everytime you give 300 gold away.

    That actually sounds pretty good. Have you tried this before? Any good results?

    no was just "spit balling" of the top of my head...

    but having access to a 9 million player community that is interested in what you are giving away has to work to some degree.

    I would be very interested in working with someone on this idea.

    If someone could develop the scripts that can verify that the user has completed the affiliate offers, then I can definitely advertise and drive traffic.

    This could be a gold mine - no pun intended. Pm me if someone has the expertise to do the scripting.

    Also - Couldn't you track if the CPA's were completed manually by logging into the affiliate accounts?

    This is a diggable idea... freebie site for game-gold. I'm not intimate with all the major affiliate networks, which one has the most non-cc CPA offers with that kind of PPL?

    hey,
    That method i used to use like 4 years ago with the game called runescape and i made around $40,000 , we basically ruined the game now lol.

    The way i used to get the ingame money was quite bad *cough* cracking *cough*

    recently i created a a wow cracker and made around $200 a day with it , it now needs to be updated.

    All im saying is that idea is quite old now and u need to find games which u know HOW they work.



    yay my first post :p
