    Hi Guys,

    im a beginner in the field of affiliate marketing and have several questions on how to monetize my idea.
    I want to know if its illegal to make money this way?

    My Idea/Niche:

    You all know the game GTA V which was released on September 16th this year. GTA V includes the game GTA ONLINE where you are able to play with people over the internet. I have written a fake Tool in C# where the kiddies think they could play GTA Online on unofficial servers before the official release date of the game. I think this would have high potential to monetize. Unfortunately GTA Online is released now and this would not work anymore. I only want to ask you, if my following technique would be successful for future ideas. What would you do different?

    My technique
    :

    1. Write the fake tool in C# (done)
    2. Create a Youtube account and create a video tutorial on how to use the fake tool
    3. Create a Google Blogger blog with instructions and embed the video in the blog
    4. Create a Sharecash account and lock the content (Fake Tool).
    5. Cash out with Sharecash

    My questions:

    Would you try to monetize this kind of idea?
    Is it illegal to monetize such an idea?
    How would you promote the youtube video? --> It think people will notice it fast, that the tool is not working
    Is sharecash a good PPD Provider for this? Or should i search for alternatives?
    Should i give sharecash my real data?
    I live in Germany... Is anybody here that could tell me about how to do that with the local taxes?


    I would be very happy if anybody could answer my questions. Sorry about the amount of questions but i want to get started as soon as possible with another ideas.

    Many thanks in advance,

    linkiwinki

    For most of the questions, you will find an answer here. ShareCash is good, but I have heard good things about FileIce and CleanFiles. You might have to check them.

    Cleanfiles and every PPD network is doing a legit business and you are paid in a legit way and since you are a beginner you won't have to pay taxes upto some amount that is fixed by German Govt You can look for that amount and when you get paid by cleanfiles or ny other ppd network they don't define how you earned as its a PPD affiliate network and it is a registered business company.so just relax and start implementing and make money.

    - It's not illegal but some PPD hate fake files but you can add password to your software and upload pass.txt to PPD.
    - Do SEO on your videos (there are some good guides available in the forum)
    - Go for cleanfiles. Its own by a BHW member and you will get accepted without any documents

    You won't be able to go too far with fake files and programs.
    You can always expect you are banned from those cpa companies the next morning.
    The other problem is you will not get visitors to come back to your website since they will not like to make themselves fool again with fake files.
