    Hey guys
    I see a lot of messages everyday from newbies taht they can't earn a penny online no matter what they do.

    I'll share a simple method I tried several weeks ago (wanted to create new income stream) but I quickly realize yo ucan;t earn much using that method though you can earn some starting money to invest into something different (i think you can earn up to 5-6$ a day with it, don't think it's possibleto earn much more than that)

    So let's start. The whole method is very simple and basic.

    I used G2A Goldmine (g2a affiliate programm, u get % from sold games) they sell mostly CD-key for games.

    I started to think where I can find lots of potential buyes and I came up with themost obvious place - Steam forum. A palce where there are thousand of games who HAVE steam installed (most CD keys from G2A are for steam) and most of them bought game for steam in the past - perfect place.

    I started to post some topics with my G2a links but I found out that steam filteres G2A links and yo ucannot actualyl use them (i think they also filter all bitly links and other shorteners) So i decided to do it the other way - I headed to reddit, found a subreddit that has NO moderation at all (subreddits with 0 peole online and no moderation is perfect) Created posts there like 'How to buy steam games with huge discounts" and posted inside my G2A link saying that there is a great sale of steam games on G2A site and you can get a discount up to 80%

    Then again I headed to steam forums and started to post topics like "Reddit guide;How to buy steam games with huge discount" where I posted a link to my Reddit topic with my G2A link.


    That's it. Simple as it is. You can start getting clicks in minutes actually.


    So in several words
    1)Register on G2A goldmine
    2)Create a reddit topic with your G2A link and it's benefit for steam gamers
    3)Create topics on steam forums promoting you reddit post
    4)Repeat





    Something I learned:
    1) You can only do that via steam client. So you log in steam client and post in forums via client (you can't go directly to steam forums through browser, they activate forum accounts for weeks)
    2)This is stil lconsidered spam by steam, your accs will get banned. You can create new ones for free via steam client and continue.
    3)Posts in gerenal forums works the best (and you won't be able to post in most of specific game related subforums anyway)


    So that's it. you can't get rich using that, but you can earn some money to start working in some other niche)

    This is such a perfect method for noobs. Plus, that twist can be used for LOADS of other methods as well.

    Another good traffic source is twitch.tv. I've seen a few people promote their affiliate link awhile back.

    Sorry for my newbie question, but I don't have any experience with Reddit.

    You said: "find a subreddit that has NO moderation at all". How can I find subreddit without moderation and what to search for in the subreddit section. Something like: "subreddit: steam games", "subreddit: steam" or the name doesn't matter.

    Anyway your twist is cool.

    I would appreciate it. A lot of people on here use DO as well so I think they'd like to see the instructions too.
