    Hello fellow Blackhatters,
    I recently got to a great CPA offer targeting one certain game (huuuuuuge popularity). So I went on to build a landing page and it became quite good. Then I coupled the landing page with a need to share the link in facebook, then the visitor will be redirected to a page. This page has a geo targeting script. US traffic will be sent to the offer, International traffic to a simple Fileice Download.
    I spent whole yesterday to build up the site. But now when it comes to traffic, I fail miserably.
    I created two YouTube videos with the gameplay of the game and then linking to my landing page. I also answered a few related Yahoo! Answers questions. The offer is an e-mail submit and offers free beta access to the game (release of the game will be in about a month and a half). If you want to get a better view on my landing page, shoot me a PM - I will be glad to show you the page.

    I thought that advertising through Facebook would be the best idea since visitors will have to share the site in order to proceed to the offer, thus I make sure that the visitor is already signed up to Facebook. The landing page has the potential to go viral, so that's what I'm aiming for.
    But my problem now is how to send traffic through Facebook? I tried posting to related pages, tried spamming my link to friends on crap accounts. I think I also need to say that I have no fanpage above 1k fans, so advertising through them would also be pointless.
    Traffic-wise I don't aim to rely only on Facebook, so you can suggest me anything.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Sincerely,
    anfyd

    Edit: I'm also open for a Joint Venture - just anyhing that could drive traffic because I see a high potential in the niche. Excuse my crappy English knowledge.

    Still seeking advice.

    Seems to me that a lot only reply for the site and then try to copy it since no one send me a further response... But I don't care, I can't do anything with the site anyways if I can't get any traffic.

    I think that making game related videos on youtube is quite a good idea. Also if you are sure that is has potential maybe you should push some traffic through adwords?

    Yes, I also thought of getting some Adwords vouchers and see if it converts - thank you!

    Unfortunately my start-up money is very limited so I can't test things out the way I think I need to... Especially now where Adwords vouchers are getting more and more expensive; yes, I have a small wallet :->

    Going to try it with more YouTube videos like suggested.

    Your sharingan saw this method, didn't it, Sasuke? :D


    Edit: Okay, I downloaded 3 more gameplay videos off YouTube. The only problem I see is that they are very difficult to rank among those hundreds of Lets Play channels with above 1,000,000 views on every single video.

    A question:
    Anyone knows a reliable, cheap domain registrar accepting Paypal?

    To answer your question, reliable and cheap domain name registrars are namechap and namesilo. Namesilo will give you free whois privacy for 9 bucks (8 bucks with coupons - search google for "namesilo coupons"). Also, namesilo propagates the nameserver really quickly so you'll only have to wait only about 10 minutes after buying the domain.

    As for youtube, don't expect quick results from it. It takes time providing you keep feeding the videos continuous views and comments etc. Do you have private proxies? Shoot me a PM if you do.

    If the game isn't out yet you can make a fake cover and put it in a game box to make it look like you have the game early. I did a method just like yours years back and made upwards of $1000. Tease the people with your game box and tell them you got the game early from your site. If your lucky it will go viral. Mine was Black Ops a few years ago and it went so viral that I got a cease and desist from the game developer and video was taken down. Haha

    this is a great method, make this video, pump up the views with vagex+add comments+likes etc.+ share the video everywhere, blog commenting+forum posting+reddit+digg+tumblr+pinterest+yahoo answers+social monkee+linkicious.me+socialadr-------Bank
    P.S. repeat every day, make more videos and do all the same or more again, target slightly different keywords.
