First post, first contribution. This is not very newbie friendly. It takes alot of work but the income possibility is endless, the sky?s the limit. But I think it?s a good read as it contains a lot of great ideas that you can twist or spin. This is a method I developed 4 or 5 months back with lots of success. This method involves Forex. If you don?t know what is Forex, google it. For your information, Forex is a very popular niche simply because it contains hype. ?You can make $1000 per day?, ?My bot does your trading 24/7? yada yada yada and all that shit. Now, although I was a Forex trader one time ago, and I have knowledge in Forex trading, that doesn?t mean you can?t bank from this. There are two ways to do this: The Evil Black Hat Way and The Not So Black Hat Way. For long term success, I suggest you choose the latter. What To Promote There are basically two types of Forex affiliate programs that you can promote. One is basically a lead based, you get from $5-$20 for every free Demo Account registration or software demo installation, last time I checked CJ has a few of these. The second one is where you bank the most and the one I used, you get $50-$150 for every Real Account registration that makes a minimum or certain amount of deposits. To be precise the one I used was Etoro. They have direct affiliate program, and also in Neverblue and CJ. Personally I?ve tried them all and of course sometimes they shave. Choose one that suits you the best. The Evil Black Hat Way This is pretty easy for you guys who can just create a simple site with a nice layout. You?re going to be creating a FAKE membership type of website. Your site is basically giving Free Membership to gain access to Paid Premium Forex Products. Now go to google or Clickbank to find Forex Products that are hot in the market right now. Take 5-10 and list them all in your website. Then, create a fake registration page on your website, and set it to redirect to your special monetization page. The Not So Black Hat Way This is suited for long term purposes. If you want to bank on this method longer, go with this route. In this step you are actually building a real website that gives a Free Membership to Paid Premium Forex Products. When I made my website I use the best free tool in the whole world, Wordpress. Use the plugin Memberwing (free) for your membership website needs. First, you need to gather at least 10 popular Forex products. Just do a google search to find out which products are hot right now. Download these products and upload it to your website so that your members can download it. Forex**optical.com is a good site to download forex products. Integrate Wordpress post and Memberwing variables and you have a good looking membership website. To create your registration page, get the plugin cforms II(free). You need to create the whole First Name field, Last Name field and so on and set it to redirect to your special monetization page after the user has finished the form. Special Monetization Page This is where the magic comes in. In this page you will make all the excuses and bullshits to try to make them signup with your affiliate offers. Example like: NOTE: This is not exactly the same as the one I used. I made alot of modifications here and there so that it won?t be the same. My point is, make something up, if you?re an ewhore you can do alot better than this to convince people to sign up with your affiliate offers. And also, notice I ask them to email me back when they completed the step? This is how you filter the ones that actually registered with Etoro, and the one that didn?t. And of course, this is where you check your affiliate account to see if you have made any conversions. As with ewhore, sometimes these people lie, they say they have registered but they were just trying to get in for free. So watch out for this too, although I?m pretty sure there are some shaving going around. So for those who confirmed they have registered with Etoro and made deposits, give them access to your membership portal, make them happy. (You can do this by going to your Wordpress options and add new user, again, I don?t want to go deep into this). Targetting and Promoting I know most of you will say, people know how to look for download links for these products. Rapidshare, Mediafire and all similar shit have many of these Forex products stored in their server, shared by many people for free. But let me ask you this, do all people know? How about those in third world countries where the people are just starting to learn/hear about Forex and know nothing much? This is where you bank in. This is where you take advantage. Not all people know how to download paid products for free. You?re not going to target people in the US, UK or Canada to make you money with your Forex membership site, you?re only going to target those who live in countries where people usually pay good money to get good products. (Hint: Asian Countries) As for promoting, first you?re gonna need the country first. Take one country for a start, then do a google search to find out their most popular classified ad sites. Take UK for example, note that this is just an example. Gumtree is their most popular classified site. Then Gumtree is where you?re gonna promote your Forex membership site. Words like FREE is a great tease. NOTE: Most of the countries that I post in, they don?t have a classified site with big locations, so sometimes you should go spend some bucks on paid listing or some sort. Or, the Blackhat way, you can try to learn how they feature listings on the front page and exploit it with your blackhat tools or anything. The sky?s the limit. Crucial Steps To Stay Under The Radar Now this is the most crucial step. First, you don?t want your AM to find out about your Forex membership site. If they find out about it, then you?re gonna get banned for doing incentive to get Forex program sign ups. Second, you don?t want the owners of the Forex products listed in your page to find out that you?re sharing their shit for ?free?. So, you?re gonna want to first and foremost block search engines from indexing your membership site. Yes, you?re gonna lost SEO value, but trust me my friend, don?t be greedy, if you market the right way, you can get lots of targetted traffic from classified sites. To do this, create a robots.txt file and throw it in the root of your webserver. Code: User-agent: * Disallow: / Also, if you?re using Wordpress to make your membership site, there should be an option to hide your site from search engines, enable it. As for final step I?d recommend you to only allow certain IP ranges to access your membership site. For example, if you?re only targetting US users, create an .htaccess files and put it in your root folder of your webserver. (Note: This is not the complete IP range of US. It?s too long.) Code: order deny,allow allow from 220.127.116.11/7 allow from 18.104.22.168/32 allow from 22.214.171.124/29 allow from 126.96.36.199/28 allow from 188.8.131.52/26 deny from all As for referer, I just blanked it. DMR sucks because it doesn?t redirect on some browsers. So, be safe and use SSL to blank out your referer. If your AM ask anything about your traffic, be smart and tell him some good legitimate shit. Conclusion I just laid out how I made 5 figures in total with Forex Affiliate Programs. Now, don?t come to me saying this won?t work because I have personally made it to work, it just takes abit of work to setup everything. The main reason I took the time to write all this is not for you to just copy paste my work. BHW guys are creative so I want to see some ideas and twists to this method. Maybe you can use it for other affiliate programs? Just share your ideas! Probably if you?re too evil you can just create a simple page with professional layout that promises good shit about Forex like guaranteed 100 pips per day or anything like that and convince them to believe it and lastly make them sign up with your affiliate offers in your registration page. But the thing with Forex is, it?s kind of different with other affiliate programs that involves money or purchasing. With Forex, even if you never give them whatever incentive you promise, the chance is they?re just going to trade the money they deposited into their Forex account. Same applies to Online Casino. So the chargeback rate is probably low. But I will never know that for sure, since with this method I always give them the incentive that I promise. If you?re wondering why I?m not using this method anymore, it?s not because it?s saturated or overused or anything. The classified sites and the countries that I bank on seem to catch up on my method and I could see a decrease in conversions every single day. I ended up selling my Forex membership website that made me 5 figures in total for $10,000 and still made money from this project coz I made the new owner signed up under my Etoro referral link So, have fun with this! And please don?t sell this on DP if I found out this is being sold ANYWHERE I will definitely hunt you down! Oh and since I just registered here, Hello BHW Community! I spent a good time writing this and proof reading it, I?d appreciate if you could hit the Give Rep or Thanks button Good day!
