    Hi BHW members,

    I have a website which is in the niche of "make money online" and I'm right now ranking top 10 for a lot of keywords which I have been optimizing for.

    Right now I have only adsense on my websites and only from that I'm making a lot but when I visit my competitors websites, no one of them has adsense on theirs! :O

    They have so called forms where you can submit your information (name, adress, number, email and so on) if you want to make money online. Well I have opted in for some of them just to see what happens but I want to ask you if you know how they profit from these? Do they sell clickbank products or do they just want to have their emails for future promotion? Or do they want them to sell their products in an affiliate manner? Or is it CPA?

    Would appreciate if someone could clarify what they do and if it's more profitable than adsense, cause then I'm going to switch to it right away.

    Regards

    Well I don't think so, because they tell you that they can make you make money free. They want you to fill out a form and so one and sometime they offer you a free report or something similar.

    I'm not sure then what happens, have signed up on their form now, will be updating with what happens, but if anyone knows exactly what they do by experience, let us know :)

    Probably using mailing lists to sell or promote products ;)

    most of the make money online guys are in it to sell you the recipe to there program they dont want ^G ads nse ads because they dont want to give away a potential 100 sale inexchange for 30¢ and give the cunstomer to someone else to sell the $100 program the emails are so they can spam the fuck out of you until you think their the god of IM and buy or break down in tears and buy to get them to go away

    Probably gathering lists or something or other. Every site doesn't have to make money, it could just be a component of the method to make money.

    My money is on someone wise.

    Thanks to all for replying.

    I think that you are right and I also thought so but wanted to have it confirmed.
    I think they collect the data and send automated emails in order to the customer about their success and blabla and finally they convince the visitor to buy their products, whether it's a eBook guide or a MLM program.

    I think I might consider this method, it requires a lot of job (making the product) but in the end I think it's going to pay off, because these search terms are high targeted and that means that the visitors want some product or guide and just directing them to some other websites by adsense isn't the best option.

    Keep these ideas coming, they are helpful! :)

    Btw I just popped by to say that I got some more mails from the signup.

    They first give you emails with only information and motivate you to start earning money online and tell you about their success (of course).

    Then they will start to talk about MLM business and finally they will show you a product, in this case it was a health product that you could sell and get rich I suppose :)

    But what I want to ask, is there anyone here on bhw which is doing this and are they profiting?
    I have only adsense and I have a good income, but if this is better, then I might just change.

    Would appreciate some help regarding this.
    Thanks

    Probably building a list and hitting the visitor with an offer wall upon email submission as well as once they verify the subscription. Then they send newsletters filled with affiliate offers and most of these guys do well.

    Well in this case, I have subscribed to them to see, they give you information about MLM marketing and then wants you to sell a product which is for health, a health drink actually.

    It's quite interesting, wonder if so many people actually buy this and think they are going to earn a lot.

    if it works dont fix it... leave adsense if you like the income ....

    but if the niche is good and the compition isnt to bad start a second site and use it for the collect email sell product plan ... hell you can even link your adsense acount to it to send it traffics...
