    Do you know the new craze of creating fake newspaper type of pages? Similar to this one here mentioned before
    Code:

    Well there is something that works even better. I have not seen anyone else do this before.

    1) Create a dummy forum targeting your niche.
    2) Fill it up with fake topics/users/forums/stats. There are many mods that you can use. I remember seeing a fake stats mod for phpBB not that long ago.
    3) Create a new topic specifically targeting the product you are going to promote via Adwords or whatever.
    4) Have a split personality discussion with yourself via multiple accounts. Make it sound realistic by having different writing styles and using different type of language. You can have an illiterate noob who does not capitalize his "I" and turns lol into lllllllllllooooooooooooool; followed by a hyperbolic cosmopolitan indulging himself with an exquisite dictionary of unaccustomed formulae.

    I wish I could show you an example but there is no way I'm letting anyone else copy me this time so don't even bother PMing me.

    Here is a quick summary to give you an idea what the conversation should sound like. You will need to expand and make every person sound realistic.

    Thread - anyone tried -product-?

    OP: Has anyone had any experience with -product-? -random story- I saw somebody talk about it the other day but it might have been a spammer. Can't find that topic now. By the way, -random realistic offtopic- the competition thread has also dessapeared somewhere :confused:

    Reply 1 - Not sure man, have not used it. blaaa blaa blaaa

    Reply 2 - I would say -product- is probably the best one I tried so far. -alternative product- is also quite good but -random story- it gave my girlfriend a spot on her ass for some reason.

    Reply 3 - Random crap

    Reply 4 - Positive review

    Replay 5 - Somewhat positive review

    Reply 6 - Random crap

    Replay 7 - Amazingly positive review

    Reply 8 - Random offtopic crap

    etc.

    Don't be afraid to give an odd negative or neutral review or go offtopic. Nothing in real world is 100%. Always keep in mind that your main objective is not to sell but to fool somebody into thinking they are on a real forum.

    What you do then is charge people for registering to the forum in case somebody might decide to join. You are actually killing two birds with one stone. You will stop people from registering without making them suspicious with "New registrations closed" message and you will add some credibility to what people have just red. Who would you trust more? A guy in the suit or pyjamas? Same thing online. Information found on a $100/month membership forum might appear more creditworthy compared to a good old public forum. Besides, they might just be stupid enough to join and give you that $100 :)

    Crank up your Adwords campaign and watch the product sell like never before!

    I was thinking affiliate marketing rather than CPA. For example CB products. But hey, whatever works. Even though I can't see how CPA companies would close up on this. I only just started doing this myself and have not seen anyone else do it. Besides, how would they know?
