    So as the title says, this is a method that I very recently found here. It sounded reasonably simple to execute, so I gave it a go, and as I expected - it worked. If you're looking to make thousands a day using this method, then I don't think that's going to be easy - but if you're just starting up and you're looking for a very simple and straight forward method, then this should be a perfect fit for you.

    STEP 1

    The original method involved using special events such as the Superbowl or the World Cup - but in my case, I found the app niche to work out perfectly. What you're looking to do is find any popular app on the App Store, or on Google Play. For example, for my initial test I picked the app 'Crossy Road'. For my second execution, I picked 'Tinder Plus'. What you're looking to do is pick something which you can provide 'cheats' or 'hacks' for. For example, for my first attempt, I picked 'Crossy Road' - a game where your character must cross each road by dodging the oncoming vehicles. I realised the game was more than frustrating once you got to a higher level and so I wanted to provide people with the 'solution' to getting rid of their frustration. In this case, I offered users an 'invincibility glitch'. For the 'Tinder Plus' app, I offered to provide 'free access to Tinder's pro features'.

    STEP 2

    So once you have found an app which you can give away something for (whether that's a cheat, hack, gold, gems, coins whatever), you want to register a quick domain for it. Doesn't really matter what you choose so long as its relevant to what you're offering. We're going to be monetising this site with mobile offers, but you can choose to monetise it any way you like (although mobile offers seem to work best when working with apps). Now the design of the site is completely up to you, but as you can imagine, the more 'convincing' it looks - the better your site will convert. I've seen some extremely basic sites out there that are working well, so don't stress out too much about the site. Just make sure you have a clear CTA and also ensure that your site looks fine on mobile. I would recommend using a responsive theme which basically takes care of everything for you.

    Here is an example of a pretty simple site I found (some as basic, and some looked pretty convincing - but like I said, it won't matter too much so long as your site isn't completely horrific).

    [​IMG]

    I'm pretty sure you can make yours look much better than the above but I hope you get the idea. Just have a simple landing page, add a few images, add some content and instructions and then have a big enough link or CTA that stands out and screams 'click me!'. To monetise the site, like I said I used mobile offers and there are plenty of networks out there you can join. I used Ogmobi - but there are lots out there. The way it works is whenever someone installs and opens a free app, you get paid. Payouts are usually anywhere between $0.35 on the low side to around $0.85 on the higher end. This might not seem like much but unlike other offers where people need to fill out 10 minute surveys, this has a much higher conversation rate. After all, all it takes is for them to install an app and that never takes over a minute or 2. You don't have to actually 'provide the cheat' but if you want - you can always redirect the user to a video on Youtube with the cheat or something similar. Be creative here.

    STEP 3

    Now that you have actually created a site or a landing page - you need to promote it. Now you could choose to do forum spamming, SEO etc but here we do something different. I give full credit to the original poster of this method (link at the top of this thread) for this technique. We're going to use Facebook. Make sure you use a dummy account for this (you'll understand why in a bit) and it would be good if you could phone verify it.

    Once you're logged in, go ahead and search for a page related to the app you are promoting. In my case, I picked the official page for the game.

    [​IMG]

    I would avoid pages with lower 'likes' as you probably won't reach a wide enough audience.

    Find one of the latest posts on the page, and comment something a little similar to:

    [​IMG]

    Feel free to be creative with whatever you say. Just make sure you tell people what they can get, and make sure you mention the 'give this a thumbs up if it worked for you' statement. Now that you've posted it - it's probably gone to the bottom of the comments pile. We're going to use Likelikego to boost it.

    STEP 4

    When you're on Likelikego, click on 'get an access token' and then follow the instructions. There is a detailed explanation here. What you're basically doing is boosting your comment to the top of the comments list. Now make sure you're aware that on some pages it will be really hard to go to the top (especially if the top comments have 1000+ likes etc - which is why I recommend picking an app or game that is not too popular, but at the same time, has enough potential to bring in traffic).

    Once you've boosted your comment to the top, it should look something like:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    You should find your comment at the top of the list. Now.. if you don't find your comment at the top, then I would recommend trying it again but without the link. It should work, and after around 15 minutes edit and add in your link to the site. One thing I have noticed from doing this is that Facebook can sometimes restrict your comments from going to the top - even if you have the 'likes' and there's no way around this except from creating another account. To avoid this type of restriction, keep your posts looking natural and not spammy. Don't post comment after comment just to try and bang out quantity.

    STEP 5

    You can always go the step further and have another account to reply to on your first comment. You could say something like 'can't believe this actually worked - thanks!' and then send some likes to that comment too. Again, be creative. Repeat this step on different posts and pages you find related to your app - but like I said, keep everything natural as you don't want to get any restrictions. Take it too fast and you could also possibly be banned by the page admin from sharing links on that particular page (in which case you simply need another account).

    There are also other sites you can use to increase your likes in the same way, such as this and this. More likes = better chance of ranking top of the comments pile. I've seen some people order likes from Fiverr but I see no reason why you'd need to do that when you can get hundreds of likes for free using sites like the above.

    Notice how I used a bit.ly link. This allows me to track the clicks and traffic. After doing the initial test on this method myself, I got a few of my VA's doing it for me. I've tried different apps and niches (remember, you don't have to just do apps. Like the original poster of this method, you could do sports events, phone unlocks, live streams, etc). Don't just stop after posting on a single page. Find other related pages and post there too. Build more accounts, post in different places and boost all the comments.

    Here are some of the stats on one of my campaigns (one of my newer ones):

    [​IMG]

    You're probably wondering how many of those 447 people converted and went through with the mobile offer on my site? Take a look:

    [​IMG]

    As you can see, around 200 of the 447 people went through by clicking the CTA to the mobile offer page - and then around 100 of those 200 people converted by installing a free app - and I was paid anywhere from $0.30 - $1 per conversion.

    Note that some offers pay higher than others depending on the country of the user, device, etc.

    Now if you're thinking 'whaaat.. only $58.30' then think again.. this is just from 1 site. For those who have the time to execute different campaigns for different apps, you could potentially make good money from this providing the users are converting on your site. Obviously a better designed landing page will convert more than a simple page with text blocks and text links.

    I'm not saying this method is a gold mine but if used correctly, it does work. And to be honest, the only investment you need is the money for the domain (everything else is all down to how much time you are willing to allocate working on this).

    I'm definitely going to have to try this spoonfeed method sometime over the next week, it looks simple enough for an web design/cpa idiot for me to follow :p

    I have been doing something similar with mobile traffic + apps, however I didn't think of using facebook. I typically do instagram and pinterest, but I never see as many hits as you do. My site is fully ready to try this method :) thanks.

    Over how long did it take to generate that income (from the time of posting the comment to the time of taking the screenshot)?

    This is wonderful Leith! You explained the process very well and it helps that you provided photos and sources to sweeten the deal. Mobile apps had taken the market by storm so it's really not impossible to find ways and monetize any of the popular apps in Google play or App store. I'm going to give this a try soon. Hopefully I can follow your lead and also earn nice money using this trick.

    Not sure all networks would be entirely happy with this traffic but this is still a solid twist

    Great method. I'll try this a few times, and share my results. I already have a good customizable .blogger landing page for this. Thanks a lot for spoonfeeding me.

    I'm using Ogmobi but there are other choices you can look into too. Any network should work.

    Just about a day.

    Usually, no. In the above example, yes, I provided them a video on how to achieve what they wanted.

    Yeah, it would be worth double checking with your network PM but usually they should be fine with it.
