    This is a pretty straight forward method and the whole idea behind it is to bring huge buyer orientated traffic to your amazon affiliate link.



    First go to Amazon.com and pick a free kindle book.The perfect choice would be one that has both paperback and kindle edition and the paperback actually costs a few bucks.Try to avoid the most famous authors like Arthur Conan Doyle for example.Now when your done with the first step build a simple fake landing page for the book.It shouldn't contain more than the image,book description and a page about the author.Make sure that the LP looks like its the authors site.You can even put a few more of his titles to make it more realistic.


    How To Promote:

    If you completed the steps above you should have a decent looking landing page loaded with your amazon affiliate links that leads to an amazon freebie.The easiest way to go is to target the major bargain/freebie websites like SlickDeals and FatWallet.A thread in both of these sites can bring you a few thousand views and believe it or not quite a few people will actually buy something else from Amazon while downloading the free book or during the next 24 hours.To receive best results don't just stick with the two major players on the market there are literally hundreds of freebie and deal sites with decent traffic,many of those will pick your offer directly from SD and FW and the ones that don't you can email.Below I have attached a list of 79 deal forums that have freebie sections.

    A Few Notes:
    This traffic wont convert as good as SE traffic to a buy keyword but because of the huge volume you will be able to make a decent number of sales.

    For best results try to avoid the word kindle in both the landing page and the forum threads that you will create because the main idea is to get as much as many people possible to amazon and you wouldn't want to limit yourself only to the ones that actually own a kindle.

    Again USE THE LIST ATTACHED BELOW. More Deal Sites = More Traffic

    This method can get easily saturated so as usual the best way to profit is to come up with your own twists.

    If you do this at slickdeals I can guarantee you will be banned. If you post in the freebies or hot deal sections, they require direct to item links.
    If you send to landers, or even attempt to attach a affilliate code you will get a nice banhammer.

    Update: I used this method, not through forums, but in tracking the link I received 161 hits from it in less than 24h!

    Of course I will have to wait and see if sales develop from it, but it does work. This gave me half of my regular daily hits in just the one shoot out. Thanks again Haspel.

    How do you find these websites? Are you using specific footprint + Scrapebox? That would be great if you could learn us how to fishing rather than giving us the fish itself!

    Very good idea man! For free landing page creators there are some free on Google or wiz.com is good too, then you can buy info domain or just use http://www.dot.tk/ to get .tk domain. I've only one doubt, if I get lots of traffic to my amazon affiliate links Could I get a ban from Amazon? Maybe it's better to make a new amazon aff account for test.

    Ops sorry I feel tired atm I didn't read the original thread date, this thread is from 2010 lol

    It should be still working although I assume the deal sites list will need refreshing :)

    Would it be too much for me to ask you refresh the your list with these kind of sites?
    It will really push me up. I'm new to all of this,any kind of help is welcomed.

    Thank you on whatever you decide to do :)

    Cheers :)
