    Ok, this is gonna be long, but informative the whole way through, so read it thoroughly, and when your done, read it again.


    How to resurrect the dead!

    Dead techniques, that is..

    So many people ask "how are you making money online"
    or say they "are making nothing" and that they "tried everything I've read"
    and still they come up emtpy handed. Some people may earn a small trickle of cash
    here and there, and some will get nothing. And i'm about to tell you why and how to change this.

    There are many ebooks and help files out there teaching methods and techniques that either
    worked, or still work and are on their way out, because people are no longer making $ on them.
    But why?

    Firstly, most of these methods were used to death and barely work any more for whatever reason, be it oversaturation, people catch on to it, sites or technology no longer allows it, etc. That is why this information gets released, because they can sell it in an ebook to people after they found it not useful anymore, and everyone buys the ebook and drives it into the dirt due to oversaturation and squeeze out every last bit of life.

    Sometimes this is the best time to jump on something because there is no competetion anymore because everyone else followed the crowd to the "new latest and greatest" thing to come along, and they will all be busy killing that..

    Right now I see everyone jumping on the google payload that just came out. Lets see how long it takes for that to be killed. Dont follow everyone else right now because you will almost assuredly be wasting your time.

    In the words of the late,great bodybuilder Mike Mentzer..
    "If you want to lead the orchestra, you must first turn your back to the crowd"


    So you ask..

    "how can you make money from this??"

    Here is a method I personally use for resurrecting "dead" techniques (and there is certainly no shortage, many ebooks through the years have been sold for many ways of earning cash online)
    Dig around and find one that appeals to you, and that is step one. Step 2 if figuring out "why it stopped working for people".

    Now comes the hard part, (well, hard for SOME, easy for others)
    You see, doing this type of thinking sometimes takes a certain "aptitude" of thinking to be successful. Some people have this ability, and some simply dont. Its not an insult, but some people simply dont have the proper aptitude to "think outside the box". They pick up an ebook and blindly follow, step-by-step the instructions as if they are making a cake from a recipe, and then they fail. You need to be able to put your own creative spin on things to "make it your own", and if you dont possess this method of thinking, you will always just be picking up the crumbs and scraps of others who are really earning, and this may honestly not be the best business for you to be in, and be successful, unfortunately. I am not gonna BS you like people selling ebooks saying its so easy a caveman can do it on autopilot, etc.. aint gonna happen..

    Ok, so how do find out why it stopped working?


    Ok, this will take some thought, but most any method can be brought back to life if you can figure out why, and we will go step by step through the process together in this text and revive one.

    First thing, look at an obvious "method killer". This one is responsible for most dead techniques, and that is the "BOT" programs designed to make your life easier. These things for the most part are garbage and cut into your earnings because you cant give it the TLC certain things need. I am not ruling out entirely the use of BOT or automated programs, because for certain things they are a great help, but for others they are self-defeating. What is the point of using a automated program and not earning barely anything, when you could work for an hour manually and actually have some success? Is it for piece of mind to say "it took me 5 seconds to run a program and earn"? And you are NOT really earning? I would much rather put in 3 real hours of work and actually EARN something instead of running a series of programs for a little while a day and hope to earn anything possible. Bragging rights to tell your friends it took you three minutes to run a program everyday and earn $15 is not gonna fill your bank account, sorry amigo, i dont care what the latest and greatest ad copy told you.

    Let us RESURRECT a method together now, step-by-step.

    Ok, now we will take a look at something together, maybe myspace and see if we can revive it, bear in mind that i have not done anything with myspace yet, but this is the steps i would take to revive it, and you will learn from it if you pay attention, and you can apply this to just about anything.

    1) Figure out why it failed
    2) Work around failures or fix reason
    3) Make a way to use it to earn for you

    Lets look at step 1 now.

    Lets look at myspace and list some of the reasons many people say it no longer works for them. Although many people say they are still successful with it, most others say it has died. Lets figure out why together.

    Ok, pretend I am joe schmo and I just received a friend request sent to me, probably from someone using the damned autoprogram, named "JEN". Lets pick this apart.

    1) The profile of "JEN" looks like a regular profile with a pic of a hot chick. Just one pic is there.
    2) Jen has 1 friend. Tom. Maybe 2 or 3 in some instances.
    3) Jen has in her bio section a BIG link that says "CLICK HERE for my XXXX whatever site"

    I can continue here but I think you can see where Im going with this.. I wouldnt add this person, because to me this looks like obvious BS person, and it will look that way to anyone else with 3 brain cells or more.

    Now we move to step 2 to fix these problems

    Step one is the easiest to fix. Go to myspace, pick a remote location no one heard of and pull up a profile of a hot girl with a couple different pics in her profile. Create a new profile in a well populated area that is very far away from her location for your new profile. Now your profile will have multiple pics. easy enough, step 2 coming up.

    Step 2 is more time consuming, but is probably the most important. Anyone would be suspicious of someone with only 1 or 2 friends. So maybe make sure the original profile you "steal" in step one has at least 8 girl friends. You will steal these too. Some of these people may actually have pictures of all or some of them together, so it will really look authentic. Make sure all these 8 profiles you create are all accepted as friends by each other in the top 8. Almost like setting up a blog farm, you now will have a "friend farm" LOL.

    Ok, now this looks more natural doesn't it? A LOT more people will not even give a second thought to accept this friend. It takes a little longer to create, but in the long run it will pay off much better than doing the typical spamming crap everyone else is doing copying offf each other.

    How would I go about getting friends? I would only request friendships to people within driving distance to these "fake friend farm" friends. Guys will do anything for a hot chick that it is assumed lives just around the corner from him. If you followed step one this should be in a populated area and should be tons of people there. Add a bunch of people to each of these.

    You will probably find that you only have to add new friends occasionally, because i can almost guarantee that most of the time, these "fake friends farm" will have tons of requests every day for people wanting to be their friends (depending on how hot they are, lol)

    -------------------

    Ok, so far, im sure MANY of you had a light bulb go off in your head and have thought of many ways to monetize this. I know I have thought of so many just typing this up. As i said, this is not something ive done, i just did this step by step together with you on the fly with no prethoughts, I am just showing you the technique i use to revive things people say are dead..

    Ok so how do we fix step 3 and monetize this? I am thinking of many ways right now, and I will share them in a followup if there is interest in this. If people want me to continue this just say so, if there is no interest, i will just do it on my own and use what i am currently thinking. Maybe we can do this as a group and throw all our ideas together and see what we can come up with to get some discussion going.

    But the point of all this is..
    YOU CAN USE THESE STEPS TO WORK WITH JUST ABOUT ANYTHING THAT PEOPLE SAY IS DEAD AND NO LONGER PROFITABLE. There is almost always a way

    Thanks for the read, I'm looking forward to more posts on this matter.

    It's pretty obvious why people are selling such "make thousands now!" ebooks for only $7, the method is probably saturated and useless if you read the book word for word. I know I've bought many of those ebooks as a newb with very little success :(

    glad to see some people liked it and found it useful. its good to think outside the box sometimes you will find gold.

    i was gonna add more to it but my hands got tired of typing lol.

    i am also gonna try some of the things that popped into my head when i was typing it up. i have a few good theories of how to monetize the myspace example. i just want to finish working on what im doing with another project first, another "dead" thing many others moved away from.

    Good info- you can also use Google Images to get pictures for profiles.

    but you would need multiple pics of the same person if you were going to follow that example. it would be pretty hard to use google images to find pics of the same person unless it was someone famous.

    unless you are going to use just one pic for the profile, which goes against the point i was making, which is most people with 1 pic in their profile are fake people.

    I found someone at Scriptlance who provided me with 250 sets of photos (3-4 photos per girlie) for about $40. Saved me a lot of time and effort searching for photo sets.
