    I know of a few good incentive networks that payout daily (sometimes hourly) directly to paypal and I'm wondering how I can find people to complete the offers. I have no problem covering the cost of the offers which is likely no more than $5-$10, but it's an issue to find the people to actually complete them.

    This could be a real goldmine....it's something like $200 paypal for every 4 or 5 people you get to finish up the sites. That's not a lot of people and scaling it could be mega profitable.

    Anyone got any ideas? I don't really care about the methods of finding people...oh and the catch is they have to be from the US (US residence, phone, and IP).

    Waiting for your responses...thanks!

    You could find any type of offer you wanted. I have thought about this too and I can't come up with a good answer. Wish I could.

    I don't mean an incentive network, like Hydra or MaxBounty where you have to find incentive offers. I mean a site built up with incentive offers. Not GPT based, but a referral based incentive site. I want to know how to get the people to sign up and complete one or two offers. They complete one or two $2 CC offers and they're done. I'd just reimburse their costs, so they wouldn't lose out on anything.

    Check out that CPA Master download bro. Same as ********* and its exactly what you want to do.

    Care to share those networks your working with? (the ones you said pay through paypal, sometimes even hourly)

    Here's one that you can check out.

    Code:
    bonusnetwork.org
    I think they have about 8 sites set up total under their network, but the owners are pretty decent. They screen accounts for fraud and all but as long as your info is all in line then you should be good to go. I think they payout via masspay too so no worries about getting chopped for fees.

    I myself just haven't had the success of getting people to go through with the whole sign up and complete offers thing.

    I'll check that out though...thanks!

    There are hundreds upon hundreds of these sites. I did all the Transcendent Innovations sites. The only way I did them was to pay people $30 to do it and I got a $50 payout.

    Would love a better way of doing this.

    You are basically talking about freebies websites, go to freelunchroom, it is one of the biggest forum for this kind of deal.

    If they pay you like $40 per completed referral, offer 50-70% of the payout there and you'll easily find people to complete it for you,

    hope it helps :)

    Is there a place where I can find people that's not saturated. I'm well aware of the freebie forums but I want to find somewhere that I don't have to always do that. It's too time consuming that way...you have to explain to people how to do this and that, and it really isn't all that complicated. People who haven't been introduced to freebie forums will be more likely to just get it done and over with, and I'm trying to figure out where to find them!

    I suggest you find a few bux sites that stopped paying and use their forums to get people to sign up under you. The owners and moderators are usually long gone and you can find a bunch of people there moaning about the money they lost. Another good thing is that you'll probably only have to pay them a few dollars (if that) because compared to the pennies they used to get from clicking ads, a few dollars is a lot of money for them. The downside is that a lot of them are not from U.S.

    I have a great deal of experience on these sites, In fact, in 2008 I generated over $500,000 on them (including about $50,000 to BonusNetwork.)

    Most of the networks offer daily payouts. And most of them will pay one a single "green." A green is usally worth $40, but on some networks they are as much as $50.

    The three biggest tips I would give you are as follows:

    1. Look for sites that pay daily. Many do now. They ALL pay through Paypal, most without fees.
    2. Look for sites that have a lot of offers (Git-r-free has over 500!) that credit well. (at least 30% of offers don't credit.)
    3. Talk to the owners of the sites and build a relationship. They will overlook issues on your folks, and help smooth issues out. And trust me, there are lots of issues.)

    From what all the owners tell me, I was the top money earner in the industry. My business model was simple: recruit people to "work from home" for me. I paid them for every "green" on time every time. I emailed them new offers daily. I offered video training, phone support, contests, etc.

    The #2 guy from what folks tell me was a MLM guy. He allowed folks to jojn the MLM by doing offers, and then they recruited fols to do the same.

    The #3 guy made youtube videos, and drove traffic that way.

    The forums truly suck. 90% of the people in there want to pay you to green, so you are in there competing with those 90 people to get 10 newbies to go green for you. As soon as the noob has been there 2 days, they become a trader like you! Now its 91 trying to catch 9!

    I can tell you the industry is on the decline. All of the offers on these sites allow the offer to be incentvized, and therefore have ton of cancellations. They offers shave like hell (or dont credit) and then most of the freebie sites shave even more. Many of the offers have hidden offers, and dont let you cancel (phones dont get answered, etc.)

    While many of my "employees" made good money, there are only so many offers, so it cant really be a long term gig - plus they all get burned eventually. All thats fine if you business model is okay with that, but part of why I made so much was because my approach was not to burn people.

    I finally had to make the decision to shut my site down, as I couldt feel good about what was happening on the offers. Like I said, Im okay with most BH stuff, but when I am recruiting someone, talking to them on the phone, training them, and they get scammed for $1000 - just not my cup of tea.

    PM me if anyone wants the names of the best networks and their owners. Or if youd like more advice on the industry, etc.

    Again, I know the industry in and out. I'm trying to figure out where to get the traffic that will convert. If you can shed some light in this it would be a great help. And I'm not really concerned about the methods...of course, black hat is welcome. :)

    Here's how you get traffic to convert. Post on CL for a jobs listing. Be specific, have a good looking web page and actually talk to the people rather than sending them an autoresponse.

    He already told you that he recruited people who wanted to work from home, CL is a great tool to do so.

    @QualitySEO

    Yes, I recruited all of my folks from CL. I ran jobs ads. I would get about 2500 responses a week, all answered by autoresponder. But here is my secret: anyone who wanted to work with me had to talk to me via phone. I know it sounds like a ton of trouble, but for me, it was worth it - I could speak to 6 ppl an hour, and the average person went on to complete 3-5 sites (@ $40 each.) Every hour was VERY profitable!

    @multimedia

    Yes, over $500,000 all in Freebie Sites. I know its hard to believe, but it was true. Now remember, I was paying folks to green, so I only netted $200,000. And yes, I guess Im a noob here. But everyone is new here at one time or another. Some folks start here and go elsewhere. I started elsewhere and have decided to start visiting here more. My freebie methods were 100% white hat. Not because I think they are "better" but because it's all I knew. I can tell you this...BH is more fun!

    @Masterfunkd is 100% right. Targeted traffic (CL job seekers) plus a good site (mine looked real, but not too polished) and I spoke to people. So many people have tried to copy my business model, and almost all tried to convert without the phone call. And they all failed. I'm not saying you cant profit without a call - but ask yourself this...how many work from home opps have you seen where you get to talk to a real person here in the US on the phone? It was magic.

    How many ads did you have to run? I've done CL before, but it was BEFORE all these strict rules were in place. I used to get a good response for anything that I posted there, but now I'm a little put off by the fact that they charge you for an ad and the high risk of flagging or ghosting.

    I have known a friend working the same in freebie sites and he did thru PPC. His ppc converts well coz he got an average of $500-$1000 a day. I also work just a few days with these freebie sites but thru email marketing and to date I have only 2 converts with a minimum of email sent. I would try also to pay someone to complete offers and I will reimburse the cost they did to complete the trial offers.

    My ratios were 10:1. Meaning if I ran an ad, and got 10 responses, 1 would set up a phone call with me. You can do the math from there.

    As for CL, most of lasy tear I was able to beat them using free ads. Once I could no longer beat them, I went to paid ads. 4-6 per week yielded more business than I could handle.

    Paid ads rarely get flagged down if written like a real job. The filters on paid job ads are so low. I was able to post all 6 every week, with my same gmail, and my real ip, and my normal cc. Eventually they were all banned (my ip, my cc, and my name and address.) Then I just moved to ip rental, prepaid cards, etc. But my point is - I have never had a ghosted ad or flagged ad in a paid city - ever.

    Hey, this sounds like a decent idea.
    Could anyone give me a low down on how this actually works?

    Hi @ all-

    I have a realy dumb question, but when checking out this site bonusnetwork.org i didnt find any place to register as affiliate. Could any1 maybe tell me how to join these freebie sites as affiliate? Do I have to contact the owners directly or is there a sign up form somewhere?

    Would realy appreciate if any1 could tell me, since i looked @ the whole site, but as i said, i just didnt find any place where i could sign up as affiliate.
