I've came across lots of useful information that other members kindly provided me and others with, information that more or less useful always come in handy or one day I'm it sure will, I thought it came the time where I could provide something as well for this community, I will share with you what I used to make my first bucks on the Internet and launched me on the IM, SEO and others, being this one of the reasons I've used to pick this method, it really goes well with newbies. Times ago I've came across my first IFW (Incentive Freebies Website), FreebieJeebies, an UK based company that pays people (in cash or freebies) to refer other people and complete one offer (they may be free or paid, usually the free ones require a credit card). For each referral of yours that complete an offer (aka turns green) they pay you 17£ (~27$) in cash or 20£ in prizes, this gifts can be almost anything. This will be the website used on this thread as it's the only one I've tested, actually paid and is 100% safe and legit. ■ The Method: Setup: -First you'll have to sign up to FreebieJeebies, you can choose one of their many sites, (apple, ps3, gifts, sports, hdtv and many others), at the time I've chosen: - apple.freebiejeebies.co.uk being this one related to apple products. (my aff. link:FreebieJeebies) -When Signing-up to FreebieJeebies I advise you to use real information here and also not to create more than one account on the same website, as they are very careful with those matters; -Now you have your own affiliate link and can start gathering referrals. -If you are serious about this you can complete the offer right now (cause in order to receive your earnings you need to have completed one offer) or you can see how many referrals you can get and complete the offer later. There is also something else you can do instead of completing an offer which is to giveaway 3 referrals and it's like you've completed your offer (that doesn't usually compensate has you can complete an offer for as low as 5$ and those referrals would be worth something like ~81$). -Regarding the offers you have available, they will depend on the place you are located, FreebieJeebies works for everyone in the world (except Philippines I think), and the offers you have available will depend on your location, choose one from the available for you. -Now you are all set to start earning referrals, this is obviously the toughest part, I will share here the methods I've tried and others I think that may have worked, I've kept this white hat, once FreebieJeebies is very strict about scamming. Gaining Referrals: This is what really matters, gaining the referrals, the methods I'm posting here have good chance of giving you referrals, it will all depend on YOU, yes I can't do this part for you I can only point the way, you'll have to use your skills, social engineering and salesman power, as you'll need to remove certain fears and claim new feelings on people, for instance make it clear this isn't some scam and make them belive they can have something they want for free. Some of this methods shall be easier, others more complex or time spending (remember you take what you worked for). -This is the first and the easiest method I'm presenting, Simply ask friends or family to sign-up under your referral link, tell them that way they are helping you to get an iPhone, new TV, etc. This method works better when you've already received something from FJ as proof it actually works, it is a simple, but easy and effective method, though it's quite finite. Note: Make sure no one signs-up with the same IP as you or same house hold details. -Try a referral exchange site, on this sites you win/buy points that can used to get referrals for your program, I've used getref.com for this, though don't expect great results as now a days the competition is too high. I belive this site may have some potential I never found, but isn't one of my favorites methods for this. (Aff. Link: GetRef) -Make trades, for example complete an offer for someone else and let them complete one for you as your referral, a good place for this the exceem.co.uk community. -Buy referrals, you can also pay someone to complete and offer as your referral, make sure to pay them less than what you'll receive (17£~27$) and you'll make profit. -Create an ebook about IFW, or how to get an iPod or whatever with your aff. link and distribute it the way you prefer. -Sell a Gig on fiverr (others) about how to get a free iPhone, iPod, etc. This works good, if propose to coach the person through the process, or if you prefer you can just leave your aff link on the description. -Create ads everywhere claiming to give for free an iPhone, iPod, Computer, HDTV or any other of FreebieJeebies products, with your referral link in it. This method as great success you can do it for free on websites like craigslist, random foruns, bogs, communities, etc. or if you will use adwords or others, try to target people, cause here it can make an huge difference. -Create your own website or page on any web 2.0 platform, rank it high on google or if you prefer get it traffic any other way, is to point that there are people living from this method... -Use your imagination, everything works with this, that's why this, as I said before, works great with newbies, simply creating fliers claiming to give free things and giving them away will work, just do, just do something... I hope you like it and can cash something out with this, please let me know what you think about it or if you have any doubts just ask, I'll try to clarify. Best regards!
