    This is something I was gonna do, but I decided to work on something bigger. This method involves reselling hosting plans, and driving traffic to your site. I will set this up step by step to show you. I have tried this (but on a much smaller scale) and it worked well. If you give this full potential you will make alot of money in a short time.


    1. Purchase a reseller hosting plan. They cost as low as $90 per year.
    2. Once you have purchased the reseller program, you can use your free hosting to set up your website
    3. Choose a working method (that requires a website) to build your site around (there are plenty here at bhw)
    4. Set up your free email that you also get with your reseller program and set up the auto responder
    5. In the auto responder you will actually give the method for free, but since they will need to set up a website, you will direct them to your reseller website to order from (Like you are referring them)
    6. Then you will go to as many free (or cheap) job boards/classifieds that you can find, and post an employment ad
    7. Make sure to hide your email address, and actually type it in within the ad. (the reason for this is that many sites now monitor emails that are sent to and from ad posters)
    8. Add to the traffic by promoting via facebook, twitter, ect.
    9. Then just check your back office regularly for conversions :)


    The average profit for 1 basic hosting plan on reseller accounts is $3 per month. So if you make 1000 sales, you will be making $3000 monthly residual income. And before anyone gets their panties in a wad about targeting job seekers, keep in mind that you will be giving them a money making method for free, and it will be 100% up to them whether they order hosting and try the method or not.

    Also the great thing is that everything you will need from hosting, to email marketing, to ssl, ect comes free with most reseller plans.

    WRONG! :)

    There are reseller programs you can join for FREE. They work like a white label affiliate programs. Most of them provide you with ready to use template based nice looking website. The key here is to setup say 3 different hosting plans - 1) really cheap, no mysql, only one domain; 2) mid-priced with mysql and 3 domains allowed and 3) pro - overpriced with unlimited mysql and domains allowed. Then .... make them purchase your cheap plan (you make money) and help them build a simple HTML site. In a week or so send another email and guide them how to optimize the site (give them samples all wordpress sites, lol) and give them an option to upgrade the plan (you make more money).... In another week or so send another email and explain them how to set up 50 MNS or so... say they already have all they need to try this out with 2 sites, and hopefully some clients will upgrade to pro plan (TIP: give them a discount code):)

    Enjoy!

    P.S.

    No action, no money :)

    Nice twist. I remember method shared mostly on each corner where you offer Free Web Diz For signing up under your hosting plan. Which is works, but involves lot's of manual work.

    Yes it is recurring commission, but it depends on how they pay. If they pay monthly then you get paid monthly, if they pay every 3 months or yearly, then you would get paid when they pay.

    Good thinking NFL... This won't make millions but definitely good for making some extra cash on the side.

    Tbh this method can be applied anywhere, say you give away "how to hook up hot chicks" ebook for free and put a dating cpa link inside.
