    I've recently came up with this idea and have been using it for the past week with great results. It involves buying gold from online vendors for cheap and trading it in game for leads.

    First you purchase a SHORT AND EASY TO REMEMBER domain name, or use one you already have. Next, register with a CPA network such as CPALead or EliteCommission.com. If you want to sign up under my referral link for sharing this method, just PM me. I'd appreciate it. Pick an email submit or zip submit off of your network that has a high payout. After that, place a meta refresh on that domain directing toward your offer. Then you should stock up on gold. You can obtain gold relatively cheap, $5-10 for a good amount that should yield $50-100~ profit.

    Now simply approach low-level players in the MMO you have gold in and tell them your offer. Remember to make use of the "whisper" or "tell" function in the game you are playing.

    This is probably the easiest fast cash method I've used. They'll most often jump at the chance because the gold you offer them is going to appear to be a lot to them but is cheap for you. For example, if you were to trade 1K gold for a lead you would get 300 leads for $10. There is always a constant flow of players so it can be scaled quite well. Not to mention outsourcing and bot possibilities..

    You can also get players to be friends with you and whenever they need gold they can contact you. You can get them to complete a different offer each time. This is important because you will be scrubbed if they do the same offer over and over again.

    There are tons of games to do this in so it's pretty hard to saturate. It should be a good long-term earner.

    Free:
    Runescape (great because it's browser based, they don't have to go far to complete your offer)
    Maplestory
    Hero Online
    Dofus
    Fly For fun

    Pay Monthly:
    World of Warcraft
    Age of Conan
    Eve Online (currency called Isk)
    EverQuest 2
    Hellgate London
    Tabula Rasa


    To find vendors just google "gamename" gold. Most of them are legit and deliver within an hour and they all accept PayPal.

    Have you tested this? Wouldnt you need to spend all day online on the games to get sign ups? Or do you outsource?

    I've played tons of MMO's back in the day, and one thing you should known is the player's general consensus that almost everything is a virus. If you tell them to alt tab and go to a website, 95% of them will first say "IS IT A VIRUS" then you will have to spend a good 10 minutes trying to convince them that they are not actually downloading anything, and etc. Could work, if you have a ton of patience.

    Yes I've tested this, it doesn't take long to get a lead. These games are flooded with players. It's not a $60/hour method alone but it's great for easy cash. That's where outsourcing comes in. You could even get the players to get their friends to come to you and they get gold for referring them.

    Andre it all depends on the game you're playing.

    Kevin, why not outsource it to India or Asia? I would be interested in your results, but dont have the time to put into it or put the money into outsourcing it before it is fully tested.

    Yeah, it'd be easy to outsource this. Just go to DP and offer 25%.. If they generate 20 an hour and you get $1 per lead, they get $5. Not bad for an Indian. The only problem is they will catch on fast and probably use the method themselves, if they can get into a CPA network that is.

    Dude, what's up with the comment's about "Asia". I'm from Singapore in Asia and we're probably more technologically advanced than wherever you live in the US.

    Not this again. All of the guys I work with online for outsourcing are from China, India, and a few small Asian countrys. This is not about race and I am not trying to make any comments about Singapore, chill out dude.

    Yeah, see if you can outsource people from Singapore for the rates that you offer China and India.

    Peace.

    If you buy gold in bulk you could practically give it away and still make a profit.

    $30 could yield $300 profit.

    I'm sorry but you know what I mean. Not trying to be offensive, but in reality it's good pay for the majority of them. Since when did BHW start getting so offended?

    As do I, both in the US and India, now this shit is getting old, outsourcing isnt a derogatory term, and if they were not good people to do business with then it wouldnt be worth outsourcing.

    This is the second time in 24 hours that this stupid stuff has come up, outsourcing deals with the economic inequalities of two countries not the intelligence or anything else of the people of those countrys.

    You could offer upfront pay or half then and half after because the gold is so cheap. It wouldn't be a bad idea to do these things either:

    • Buy an already leveled up character.
    • Buy power leveling.
    • Play the game yourself and on the way make money. This way you make friends who would be repeat customers and also level your character up.
    • Buy weapons and armor to make yourself at least look high level.

    outsourced workers arent blackhat, they are basically employees for all intensive purposes, but yes, I agree, I dont care about any color other than green.

    If I may, I want to share my experience in this method.

    It's funny because I came up with the exact same idea about 2 weeks ago. I have a virtual assistant who is super nice and helpful. In the beginning I told her to work the chatrooms. We tried all the methods. Ewhoring (telling the dudes we are doing some school project or some BS like that... and ask them politely if they could help fill out the lead). Didn't work. Most men, horny teens, even kids nowadays are much smarter than that. Usually they would just disppear the moment you tell them to do something like that. Or they would say they've done it but all the leads won't convert coz they put in some BS emails. We also tried the spamming route. Didn't work either.

    So then one night I had the most brilliant idea (I thought so at the time lol) Me and my assistant got on SecondLife and started going around asking people if they want free lindens. (the currency in the game which can be used to buy clothing, sex etc... can also convert back to real money) I thought people there must jump at the chance of filling in some surveys for some lindens, since they are used to that idea in those camp sites in there that bascially do the same thing. WRONG!

    You WOULD NOT BELIEVE how dumb these people are. Well, most of them anyway. They would say to you you're a scammer and want to plant virus on their computers. One time, this girl told me she's a real life model. And I asked if she would like some free lindens. She said yes, but refused to fill in some email offers for me. i believe this is what she said "i'm not giving my email to any strangers. In case you're a stalker and come visit me in the middle of the night".... hahahaha.... I guess models are not that smart afterall.

    So yeah, my point is... this doesn't work that good. I tried this method full time for about 1 week. And I only get like 5 sign ups in total. I don't know about other games like Runscape or WoW... so I can't speak for those. But i can't imagine the result would be spectacular.

    It's all about the game you target. Second Life isn't a great game to do this on because it's already done. Not to mention the currency is expensive to buy. The real value in this method is in the outsourcing, not doing it yourself.

    They is a site for americans which give rewards for playing games what they do is sell information like how long you play the game etc to survey companies and they get paid. Now if we can replicate that then it will be a gold mine!

    the site is jact.com

    Quite an old method but it works great. :)
    To the people that are actually going to try this method out, be careful if you are going to go for Runescape because they do have strict rules and you can easily get your account banned because of real world trading. So be careful who you buy your gold from and how much unless you want to get banned in the game and lose your money. lol
