    Note: I have not tested this personally, but it should work if you put in the effort.

    Every 90's kid dreamt of this job I'm sure. Playing games and getting paid for it. This is almost what we are going to do. Why almost? We aren't really going to "play" the game, but we are going to run it. Which game is this? None other than Dota 2!

    So, what's the idea? We are going to appeal to all the gamers who will do anything to get that rare in-game hat, weapon and courier for their game.

    Lets start from the beginning.


    1. We are going to make a text file in notepad. Put whatever you want in it. Make some ASCII art if you're good at that sort of thing.
    2. Upload the txt file to Cleanfiles or any other PPD network. For ease of access, try change the bit.ly extension to something memorable, people are going to be typing the link manually.
    3. Run Dota 2. If you don't have it, go and install Steam: http://steampowered.com and download the game, it's free.
    4. Once in the game, you'll see there's a chat widget thing on the right hand side of the screen. Join as many chat channels as you possibly can. Valve has conveniently placed them in order from full to empty. (I think 1000 is the max amount of people that can be in a channel at once).
    5. Make a convincing message. Something along the lines of "I'm giving away some accounts with a rare courier in each of them. http://bit.ly/YOURLINK"
    6. Copy this message and paste it in all the chat channels every now and then, for as long as you feel you can handle it. Your account may get reported and "Silenced" for spam, so try switching Steam accounts every so often.

    That's about it. Like I said in the beginning, I haven't personally tested this method, so I'd be excited to see if anyone has success with it.
    Good luck guys!

    What about Cleanfiles trying to remove fake content? There was a thread about that I think.

    Yet Another In Game Chat Spam Method

    I don't know how many active members are on DotA 2, but I remember I made some decent money back when Garena was hot (1mm+ users), but there was premium membership. I can't say for sure that someone will bother to do anything just for a hat.

    It might be even a better idea if combined with a landing page for building a list, gamers are known for buying stuff online.

    Then don't use fake content. Do a Google search about the hat in question, see how it can be obtained (even official FAQ works), paste the info in a txt/pdf or jut download a guide from YT and lock that. Now advertising "How to get THE HAT for free!" isn't fake.

    I did something similar but with beta keys! I got my sharecash account banned for false advertisement LOL
    So I would reccomend using a cpa company that doesnt care or wont ban you for false files
    It made me 28$ in 1 day so this does realy work!

    I use this method for a lot of new and old games with actually giving the people what they want. Also I sell them a few services on the side if they actually do want to get into the whole YouTube / Twitch scene.

    Lol, experiment with your wording and keep at it like moorish said.

    It will take work.. How much are you willing to put in?

    This also works with League of Legends, I have been gaming that for a long time.
    Pro tip: Free RP ;)

    I think it depends too on what you're giving away? Like giving away a new courier doesn't actually do anything since it's just a skin, so no one is getting exited about that.

    There is a guy spamming Youtube (probably someone here) with a message like below so maybe give that a try.


    Hello Dota 2 players, check out this link:
