    I started about a few months ago with NO experience in internet marketing. I had no knowledge of SEO, HTML, website building, back links or anything technical related to the internet. I read hundreds of threads suggesting ?easy? ways of earning money, but I had no clue how to implement them. I?m 100% sure now that with determination and a bit of creativity it is possible to make money on ANY method posted on this website. Now I am sharing my success story. It is not a new method at all but I hope it will encourage some people to act and start making money!

    Knowledge and tools required:

    - Wordpress
    - A few CPA networks
    - Domain name
    - Hosting

    Wordpress is super easy to use and even a noob like me was able to learn how to use it fairly quickly.I assume most people that browse this site have at least some basic knowledge on how to build a website, just Wordpress makes life so much easier.


    Background of the method:

    So I created a TV show website back in August with about the top 20 shows that are currently airing on TV like House, Heroes, Gossip Girl and Grey?s Anatomy. I used a premium theme that I found on this forum that is made specifically for videos. I didn?t want to post all the episodes of the shows since it is really time consuming finding every episode if the show is in its 7th season. So I just posted the episodes of the current season because that is what people are looking for.

    The Method:

    It?s simple: you block the video with a gateway that forces people to fill out a survey or you?re CPA offer in order to access the video.

    White Hat version:

    Use CPAL3ad because they provide gateways with surveys that allow incentives.

    Black Hat version:

    Use CPA networks with either BlackHat CodeBreaker or the CPA Money Wizard Automated Content Protection (I prefer this one). You also have the fake your referral. For that, I use the CPA Redirector plugin with a white hat landing page!!(If you don?t understand how to do that you can search around on the forum or if a lot of people can?t find it, I?ll explain). Knock on wood I haven?t been banned yet.

    Traffic:

    I get 0 organic traffic since I suck at SEO All my traffic is from Web 2.0. I just bookmark my post, submit it to social media, yahoo answers and etc.

    In September, I made $2954 which is pretty much $100/day. I?m so happy that I finally found a method that works and will soon outsource a lot of work to increase my earnings and hopefully improve on SEO! $200/day here I come!

    If you have any questions, I?ll be happy to answer.

    #1 tip: Stop reading and start acting! :)

    1. Bought my domain from godaddy since all my other domains are from there

    2. Hosting out of Canadian hosting company at the moment, not sure how safe is it but I'm not hosting any movie/tv just embedding them. I'm gonna look to move my site to an offshore host once I find a reliable one!

    Basic E-mail submits work best like "get a free gift card at walmart" or similar to that. Since the traffic is not very targeted (i.e. single males 20-45), dating submits won't work well. Email and ZIP submits tend to work with everyone.

    Just out of curiousity, are you splitting this between multiple networks? And are you following any rules for spreading your leads? For instance, less than $25 per offer and less than $100 per network per day?

    I'm just thinking that most of these users will only fill out their email address, not filling out anything more, so spreading this method out might be necessary, and I was curious on your opinion with this. Thanks for your input :)

    Awesome method. I will definitely try this! How do you get the episodes? Do you just embed them from Hulu or what?

    Yea, right now I'm doing about $25 over 4 networks (only 1 offer on each network though) because I want to stay as low under the radar as possible.

    I don't like Hulu because they only have a few episodes up at a time and it only works for US visitors. So I find the videos on other sites. The best site is: Sidereel (it's a goldmine)

    Thanks for the info Craigs!

    I just had one question: are using a tool that can rotate your offers or are you just manually adding different links for different web 2.0 sites?

    With the CPA Automated Content Protector, you can show up to 5 offers at a time, most people will click the first one, but I just rotate it which one is on top throughout the day. I need to find an automated way, but right now I don't mind putting 1-2 hours a day if it's going to make me a $100:) As I learn more I'll be able to automate + scale

    First and foremost congratulations. Quick question for you why do you prefer CPA Automated Content Protector over the other gateway?
