    I've been testing this Marketing technique I'm about to tell you for little over a week now and it's had some pretty impressive results.

    There are probably ten million people online, looking for downloads at any given time. Of course, a lot of them could be looking for porn or free software but still, reaching a minimum of a million people on any given day does offer some rather intriguing possibilities.

    People like using file services to download music for two simple reasons, they're free, and there is an incredible selection. The fact is Pandora's Box has been opened. In Napster's wake, other quasi-legal services quickly emerged... a lot of them. Even if they are closed, others will succeed them.

    Major record companies would like to think otherwise but they are never going to stop file sharing. Net users are file sharers...plain and simple. Long before the Internet came into being, people made cassette tapes of their favorite music for their friends...cd burners are so much easier and faster.

    So how can you use this to help your viral marketing campaign along? Think about this. Once someone downloads your MP3 files or whatever in a .zip or .rar, viral marketing begins. You could add a text file linking to you site in the .rar or.zip, you could require a password which the user can get from signing up at an offer you get paid for, you could even just send them to a page and require them to opt in to your list before you send them the actual file.

    After two users start sharing your files, suddenly, your music and it's .zip or .rar file is on the hard drive of a second computer...then a third... and on and on. When users are searching and they find your music on a lot of different computers, they are more likely to download the files. It's just a matter of time before you'll find your files showing up in more and more places.

    You can use this technique in so many different ways it's a never-ending possibility of cash flow.

    So get to it, and SHARE :)

    CPA offers make sense, but getting opt ins or trying to try to sell to thieves is another beast. I'd like to believe that it could be so easy but look at it like this. Say I want to promote a clickbank ebook and I write a report and it goes viral on the torrent sites. If people read the report and want the ebook, they're just going to go directly back to where they got the report and try to get the whole book free. Please, someone tell me they've made money from a list made up from the filesharing generation.

    You just have to sell them something that they can not download from torrents. Think wise.
    Physical products or access to membership websites for instance.

    That's true, but as Nick says...

    I think paid forums, membership sites, and physical items are your best bets if you're going to think about implementing this technique.

    You can either start your own, or become an affiliate for sites already set up.
