    On Saturday morning, I woke up and found out that my bike was stolen. I knew that it was someone from our neighborhood since they are the only ones that knew about my bike. So I decided to come up with a plan to get my money back for my bike plus more.

    What's the Plan?

    Using tactics called, "Offline Marketing", we're going to be using them as pawns to generate leads for us.
    This method can be used in so many different ways so be sure to try and think of a twist.
    The plan is to put up flyers or papers (your choice) on doors of your neighbors house or street poles. These flyers will have a short message telling them that they can make money from their home.
    For example, a flyer can say,
    "Want to own a website to make money while you are sleeping? Email me at [email protected] to find out more!"
    Many people want to make money while they sleep so you'll get a ton of emails to you if you did this right. The email's itself are useful since you can build an email list but I won't cover that here.

    To the Method

    You have the emails and those people are interested in making money online.
    We are going to take advantage of a program called, "Hostgator" because they offer good hosting for cheap prices.
    Hostgator allows you to refer clients or people to their website to purchase hosting and give you commission for doing so.
    However, here's the fun part. You can get $50+ per purchase even if your customer or client purchased a penny hosting package. So lets place this in reality and show you how it goes.

    Reality Game Plan

    First, we will signup for their affiliate program. Once you are in, you can continue. This step will take the longest because it does take them quite a time to approve you (1-3 days) but once you're in, you can start banking.
    Second of all, we will get our affiliate link and send it to your neighbor through the email. You will tell them to signup to Hostgator using that link and use the penny coupon to get a month of hosting for a penny. Tell them that they can take advantage of this offer to see if they really want to make money online.
    Also be sure to tell them that once they sign up (make sure to tell them to buy a domain as it is needed in registration), you will guide them into making their website and get them started.
    Once your done sending this email asking them to register and get a domain to everyone that emailed you, you will start seeing the commissions start piling up on your dashboard.
    Now, in order to keep your profit, you need to make sure that they connect the name servers and install WordPress on their domain and hosting plan.
    Once WordPress is installed, you can ditch them there or you can actually help them out and install a few plugins and a theme that looks decent.
    Don't waste your time too much, just spend just enough time to get them started.
    If you don't want neighbors finding you after you ditched them, use this method in a different neighbor hood.

    How to Scale this Method

    The first few customers, you should spend some time going things over with them so that you get the hang of how this works.
    But scaling is the most important factor of every company or business so I have thought of a way to scale this method very well.
    First, set up an auto responder so that once someone emails you, it shoots them an email right back telling them to buy the hosting and a domain. This will greatly speed up the process and if they are techie, you can generate money right away. However, some people don't know how to connect name servers so you should watch out for those neighbors.
    Secondly, hire some students or kids in your neighborhood to put up flyers all around the neighborhood and other neighborhoods as well. Kids these days will do so much for little money so pay them around $5 for 100 flyers they put up or so.

    Also note,

    Hostgator's commission varies depending on how many signups you have per day.
    If you follow the game plan very carefully and scale very well, you can easily make more than $10,000 a month. This is because every 1-5 people you refer, you get $50 and every 21+ you refer, you get $120 per signup.
    More details can be found on their affiliate page.

    Final Words

    If you can really scale and market, then this method will be the bomb for you. If you know how to build an email list, you can even make even more bank because you have people that are relevant to your cause.
    I easily made $5,000 as a 11 year old using this method and it still works. I know walking around the neighborhood putting up flyers is a daunting task, but if you can do it, you can make so much money.
    Now, go and try it out!

    Interesting method to be honest.
    I would send them one email as soon as they signed up for the email list containing the webhost aff link and a guide on how to set up nameserver, buy a domain, buy hosting and set up WordPress
    Then after a week I would hit them up with another basic ebook containing some amazon product review site method. (Stuffed with more affiliate links :) )

    Sounds like a fun method man!

    How would you go about checking if people actually delivered your flyers? Mostly trust right?

    P.s: Didn't know that you would get a commission if they sign up with that 1 cent plan.

    Hello,

    I read your post 2 times, and I don't understand one thing: what's the link between your story (your stolent bike) and your method (make free websites with affiliate hostgator)?

    Hard to believe you came up with this plan at 11 years old but good method regardless...

    This entire thing reads like a WSO gone wrong...

    You got your bike stolen, so instead of talking to the police or knocking on doors like a normal person you are going to get them to sign up to affiliate offers and buy a new bike?

    were you dropped on your head as a child?

    Well this is a Very old method but now presented with a little twist, you can also tell people that you are going to build websited for them for free and do everything else, this works much better with local small businesses where you go and tell them that you are willingto build them a website for free which usually costs around $500 to build your portfolio and then later upsell them on things like seo etc!Also hostator and others pay u after two months after the prrson that reffered you has been with them for 2 months if you ditch them and they cancell their hosting befor the second month you get nothing

    He just assumed the neighbors had something do with his bike so his idea of revenge was to get them to sign up with his Affiliate Links. Wow.

    The method itself is a little funny. I like the way OP thinks tbh. For anyone trying this just go ahead and setup a Getresponse autoresponder right from the start. It's pretty simple.

    Edit : Saw Wilson's post. Lmao. I wonder why you didn't scale this up.

    I actually stopped doing it because one neighbor found me after I ditched them and told my parents.. My parents told me to stop so I just listened to them. Also, Sort of beat my $5/day goal too..

    What would knocking doors do? Everyone has a lie and I already reported it to the police. They didn't really care much if a $100 bike

    While this method may actually work, I find it rather funny that OP come up with it (considering that this is really his own) when his bike got stolen. Like, seriously? Your neighbor stole your bike and you didn't seek the authorities' help? Imagine what method you may come up when someone burn down your house. j/k :)

    You should write up the film script and send it into Hollywood. I can smell "Best foreign language film 2017"

    "A heartwarming tale of a young bikeless villagers triumph over adversity"
