    Yes I am promoting white hat stuff and making a lot of money. I have found white hat stuff is easy to monetize and you don't have to fear about getting caught by your CPA network. Everything goes smooth.

    I'm currently earning about $10-$20 a day by locking my custom made themes.

    Of course. If everybody would be locking fake stuff then there would be no content locking offers available any longer as the number of complaints would be outrageous!

    I used to run a content locking site that did around $500 a day in average with a combination of organic traffic and PPC, completely white hat.

    The key here is to think outside of the box and come up with content that isn't readily available for free but that there's demand for.

    As soon as you start ripping ideas from forums you're destined to fail as those same ideas are being utilised by a number of other people/sites and needless to say, people are not willing to jump through hoops to get their hands on information that they can get from elsewhere for free.

    To recap, to be successful in content locking your content has to be:
    1) Either unique or something that isn't readily available for free online;
    2) Something that there is demand for.

    It also helps to think about the demographic that you're targeting. For instance, 20-30 year old males are far less likely to convert than say 40-50 year old females. Similarly, people with lower income convert much better than professionals.

    Yeah, this is somewhat true. I think its because, they always try to test or try to attain to a better position or trying to get the particular thing, eventhough it costs them.

    But the point here as you said, "bryanon", either unique or something that is not easily available for free online.

    Guys,

    PLEASE stop PM-ing me:
    1) asking what niche I operated in;
    2) asking for tips.

    I will not reply to these PMs as you obviously haven't either read or understood my reply in the thread. Like I said above, YOU need to think outside of the box and come up with an idea on your own - bearing in mind the two criteria - the content needs to be: 1) unique or difficult to find; 2) in demand.

    If you have tried earlier and failed then in all likelihood it either didn't match one or both of these criteria or you didn't get enough (targeted) traffic.

    I'm happy to answer questions in public threads for everyone to benefit from but will not be "coaching" people privately, especially if I have to repeat what I've already said.

    Thanks,
    Bryan

    Yes you are right Bryanon. Taking ideas and niches from a public forum will not going to help you out if you are planing on something long term. What is most important is having a unique idea and thinking outside of box. It took me 6 months to find out a secret traffic source which was not saturated at all. I can see everybody here goes with the typical Youtube traffic + fake hacking niche but again that's not sustainable and long-term. Use all available traffic sources and do not rely on a single traffic source even on if it is the organic search. There should be a backup.

    Yes. Many new artists are find this way is really to attract to their content. EBook writers. Basically all your content which you have been produced is considering a white hat
