    So over the past few months ive been developing a strategy with fellow BHW bdooley930 and its been converting great for us.
    The key to the movie niche:
    -youtube colors work
    -no survey content locker crap if you want to make real money
    -create an atmosphere that makes the viewer feel like he or she is actually going to be able to watch the movie.
    - 3 page strategy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    What is the 3 page strategy?
    Its simple, ITS YOUR MONEY MAKER! When a viewer lands on your page, there is a good chance he/she will have been through a ton of other bullcrap movie sites. Once they have browsed your site for the movie they want to watch and they click watch now? you send them to third page with an flv player. At this point the viewer is like holly crap I finally found the movie.
    At this point they may still be skeptical but little do they know you have anticipated this skepticism. What you have to do is upload the beginning of a movie that shows a popular movie studio IE fox, paramount, etc . This way when the viewer hits play its looks like the movie is legitimately about to begin playing (at this point they are sold, and probs already have the popcorn being made). At about 10 second in you set up cue point that pauses the movie and shoots up a ?LOG IN NOW OR SIGN UP FOR A FREE TRIAL?. Now because the user is so committed they are almost always going to click sign up now for a free trial. At this point I shoot them to the affiliate offer, which is perfectly tailored to this recipe.
    Once the user signups for a free trial I get paid my $12.00. Since I have developed this strategy with bdooley930 I always convert at a min 1%.
    Now a lot of you are going to say well that sounds great, but how do I create the player page?
    Well as our way to say thank you to BHW, bdooley930 will be sending out code for the player page to anyone who request it.
    As well, if you would like to see this strategy in full affect don?t be afraid to pm me or bdooley930.
    Rock On

    Nice twist on a classic method there.

    And I do think you'd have higher conversions with this compared to content lockers. Just from the fact that your whole site is actually viewable by the user.

    It'd be interesting to see (If you have these stats) your plays:eek:ffer signup ratio, I'm assuming your 1% conversion is Uniques:signups?

    Nice share

    Nice twist for the movie site. How about hiding the player time bar or faking it look like more than 30 seconds so that visitors can be convinced that there is a movie.

    rockyonfire, you can either make the flv longer, or make the controls transparent, not sure about a fake time. I've tried a fixed time, and then the cuepoint fails.

    @ dooley ive tried a whole bunch of things for the player time. I think im just gonna look into loading a full movie in there and do a cuepoint.

    definitely a good twist. I have been working on this niche too. Typically I would do Ok considering the traffic, but within a few days, it would go to no leads. The funny part is I would switch affiliate companies, and I would get conversions, then a few days later, it would die to nothing again. I have been trying to think of why that is happening.
    Gonna Pm you now for more info.

    Thanks again.

    I do a similar thing. I take like a minute from a movie and distort it.
    Message on the page is that the player installed on their comp doesn't support the format of the movie.
    Of course I offer them an alternative...:D

    Only problem are the refunds/chargebacks since you're not delivering.
    I added a fake submit field where they have to enter their payment ID (like PP transaction ID) to get a free list with more movies. It's just a list with some moviesites that actually have movies.
    This seems to calm down some buyers because refunds dropped after I added that to the site.

    As for the playbar. I use Easy Video Player and hide the controls.

    Very good points, the system only works as well as the company you use to send them to after you have set them up. That's what makes our system great we send them to something that converts with no refund rate.

    what is "good" here? All about cheating people. I do not want to talk about ethics or moral values. But what is suggested in this thread is far from them. this is not black hat.

    I think this thread is a joint venture to get users to sign up for their affiliate company. If you check the affiliate forum here at BHW you will see that the OP announced a new movie / tv affiliate back in February and updated the thread yesterday to include information about this post. I would have not thought anything about it but when I received an email with site files in it there was also a link to their affiliate with a referral.

    Also there new "company" has not had any reviews such as paid members from this forum etc.. I have a feeling this was a great attempt to fuck with peoples time and money in my opinion. Last of all the files weren't anything but a black page with fake media player and links directing to affiliate. Nothing new, nothing fantastic. Sorry :(

    I understand that everyone thinks everything is a scam, but what we are giving it the raw code to make the same thing we are profiting greatly from, if you just want to write it off, that's fine. It's works awesome for us, if you take some time and work the code or ask us questions you will be converting and profiting from your traffic as we are.
