    Hi guys. I need some guidance.

    I recently stumbled upon danieledwards' $150 a day from Instagram thread and I'm thinking of doing the same thing but with legit item giveaways. Is that a good idea? How can I monetize this in a non-spammy way?

    Giveaways are not real giveaways at all, products donĀ“t even exist most of the times, they are ment to lead people to a page and capture their email address or made them suscribe to something, and then spam them with your affiliate offers. Make them add you and share your post so all their contacts will see you and they will see your future "contests", lead them to you landing page, capture their emails and then you will have your opt in list to spam your affiliate offers.

    Isn't there a monetizing method where you get paid when someone fills up a survey? I actually intend to give out items to a random participant as I mentioned in my OP.

    You can lead them to a CPA site to fill a survey or any other content locker you like and get a few bucks. But a list and new followers will be more valuable and you will be able to monetize it more than once with different offers, you may even sell it for more money than you would get with surveys. People tend to give up when they see a survey, but they are more willing to give you their mail for a contest.

    If you give a prize for real, better for you, make sure to show the winner with the prize to all the contest participants, so they will share more easily your future contests.

    That's what I'm thinking too...I guess I'm gonna have to rethink the monetization angle.

    Yup...was planning on doing this.

    Try different methods, the best way to learn is trying and failing until you hit what work best for you. The worst thing to do is not taking action, if you don`t try you won`t win. Best of Lucks!!!
