Please keep this thread clean. Don't post one liners to say "I might give it a try". Enough of all the "make $1000/day" crap. Lets turn this thread into a little directory of realistic methods you have actually made money with. I noticed that recently people started posting methods that they "think" might work, that somebody else "made" money with or they would exaggerate their earnings. Just because you've made a $20 sale in one hour it does not mean that you are earning $200 every day easily. So feel free to either link or post methods that you personally have used to make money and would realistically think that the readers would be able to do what you did. 1) Write a "make money online" ebook. Buy a new domain and setup a landing page. This will be used to generate some last minute cash at the end of your product's life cycle. Go to DP and PM a few regular "leechers" that go around asking people for a free review copy. Make sure they have some itrader and rep. Ask them to write a good review for you in exchange for a copy. Your main objective is to flood the first page with good reviews. Sheep chain reaction will then start and your sales will sky rocket. Once you sucked DP dry go on SitePoint and sell your ebook business for 3 to 12 times your monthly revenue. I won't tell you the exact figure I've made in case the tax men are listening (Low xx.xxx in the last 2 years) 2) http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/cookie-stuffing/46390-easy-2k-month-clickbank.html (Sorry JrVIP only) I am loving this one! Don't do it on DP. Do it on a diet forum for example, away from other webmasters. I make some good sales every other day. I tend to go for big, expensive products. 3) Pretend that you have something that a user needs. Some sort of software or a video. Create a fake download page and ask them to fill in a survey or download some PPI or submit their email address in order to access the page. This method has been discussed here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/making-money/19996-lets-brainstorm.html a while back (Some links are dead) yet this method still works a treat even now days. Newbs can save time by using cpalead.com to quickly protect your content and in combination with this: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/making-money/67171-make-some-money-idiots.html you should not have any problems with finding a target user. 4) Classified ads lies. This method has been discussed here a number of times with various twists. The concept is simple. Find a CPA product to promote, make an attractive post on a classified site such as CL and when you get emails from people replying to your ad lie to them in order to get them to complete a CPA offer. Here is an example: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/making-money/67194-method-has-made-me-100-daily-2-weeks-now-idiot-proof.html This works a treat with pretty much any product. For example lipstick CPA offer. Say that you are giving away some lipstick samples and when people contact you tell them that you have already run out and point them to your offer. TIP: Don't use an auto responder. Copy and paste a generic response by hand and edit the first line to make it sound personal. 5) Screw faking YouTube views. Download popular sexy videos that YouTube did not delete after a few weeks, watermark them with a great big image at the end of the with an arrow pointing towards your link in description, saying: "Get laid tonight for real" (Or something along the lines). Reaupload the videos. Point cloaked link to AFF or other adult dating website. Any kind of products people can't pirate work. Viagra, penis enlargement tools, sex toys work a treat. When I first started I spent a night re-uploading around 70 videos. I had my first sale when I woke up in the morning. 6) Download an Ebook via Torrent, fill it up with affiliate links and re-upload it again. I find that "How to get laid" Ebooks work best. Poker ebooks pay well but Torrent users tend to get suspicious. 7) Do you know how many results you get when you go to Yahoo answers and search for: "Where can I buy" ? 134,874. That's 134,874 people who want to spend their money but don't know where. All you need to do is to point them to your affiliate link. Obviously some people are looking for the best place to buy fresh fish in their city so you can't sell them much there but some other questions are less difficult. Try searching for "which should I buy" or "what one to buy". OMG I have such a big problem, I don't know whether I should buy this 50 inch plasma or this 47 inch LCD. Then you come along, plug your affiliate link and tell them a horror story about the other product (Best way of doing this). Tell them that the other TV blew up collapsed on your 5 month old puppy you really loved. (Well, you get the idea) 8) E-whoring... E-whoring worked, works and will work. There is why BHW has a great big section dedicated to E-whoring. http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/f104-e-whoring/ I did it out of curiosity even though I was making good money by then anyway. After making $400 in the first day I almost quit my mainstream business. 9) http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/making-money/47775-make-500-day-giving-people-free-websites-offline-marketing.html because I do a bit of web design myself I would go through local business listings in magazines or newspapers and contact small businesses without a website and offer them one for a price the can not resist... (Not free like OP mentioned). Oooops I'm out of time. Hope you guys can share some of the methods that work for you as well.
