    Hello everyone, I'm going to try to keep this as basic as I can. This method is aimed at the just starting BH'er or anyone who wants to make an easy $5-25 a day while being able to work on other things. I personally do this daily.

    Basics:
    Creating Twitter Accounts
    Following 1k Recently Active Users Per Account
    Automating Tweeting/Following/Un-following
    Gaining Referrals/Profits

    Things You Will Need: (All but the common sense included)
    Hummingbird
    Common Sense
    Optional: RoboForm
    13 or Older, Any Country

    Step 1: Gather 10 or so believable pictures of attractive girls, no obvious or tacky pornstar-like ones. That just screams of fake.

    Step 2: Get/Install Hummingbird, it can be found here:

    Code:
    http://www.rapidspread.com/file.jsp?id=xd4gwqzeqr
    Code:
    http://www.virustotal.com/analisis/b805ad7f75dcf94fdbdab489bbfe3b56de5b91eb523c9ec6517672ca8684bd1b-1244440273
    Step 3-Optional: Get/Install RoboForm, this is a handy program for auto-filling out forms, thus speeds up making Tweeter accounts. The free version works perfectly.

    It can be found here:

    Code:
    http://download.cnet.com/RoboForm/3000-2092_4-10037672.html
    Step 4: Setup your RoboForm auto-fill settings by creating an identity. You'll need to set a random name in the Person tab, and a random email prefix you're going to use. For example use something like dfgoet@yahoo.com, and once you auto-fill the Twitter sign up form with RoboForm you'll just add a number to the email for example, dfgoet1@yahoo.com, dfgoet2@yahoo.com, dfgoet3@yahoo.com and so on.
    Under the Authentication tab you'll want to set a Favorite User ID and Favorite Password, use the same method as the emails with adding a number after the prefix for the account names as well. You'll be able to create a Twitter account in about 5 seconds once you're used to it.

    Step 5: Add one of the random pictures from Step 1 to the account. I find it most efficient to make accounts 10 at a time.

    Step 6: To automate your Tweeting/Following/Un-following/DMing sign up at:

    Code:
    www.tweetlater.com
    Add each of the accounts to Tweetlater, check the Auto-Follow and Auto-Unfollow boxes when adding the accounts. Optionally you can set the Auto Greeting which will send a DM (Direct Message) to anyone who follows you, this is basically a private message. Using DM's to spam your links will get your Twitter accounts banned much quicker than not using one, but once you get faster at making accounts it will be more time efficent to use DM's. So test this out on your own and see what works for you.

    Step 7: Now the most important thing, where you're going to earn money from. You'll be signing up for CashCrate which normally is pretty crappy money but with getting referals you earn 20% of what they do starting off and once you have 50 referals you make $1 for each after 50, which ends up being pretty amazing.

    Code:
    http://cashcrate.com
    Step 8: Go into your Referal Info in CashCrate and find your referal link. At this step you can either buy a cheap domain and forward it to your referal link or find a link shortening service that you can trust. I use bit.ly, you can track all your views very well there.

    Step 9: Making your Auto-Tweets. Open Notepad and make up 20 believeable events that could happen during your normal day, which will be used to make people believe you are real so they follow you back on Twitter. Keep in mind Twitter has a 140 character limit with Tweets. Each Tweet should be on it's own line, that is how TweetLater knows which Tweet is which. Now create 3 lines advertising your CashCrate link, make it something people will want to try without making it sound fake or pushy.

    Try something like this:

    Code:
    Made $12 this hour filling out surveys at REFLINKHERE
    Want to make $9-14 an hour doing simple surveys? REFLINKHERE
    I've been asked a lot how I am able to support myself working at home, the answer is by doing surveys here. REFLINKHERE
    Now copy and paste those 3 messages so there is 100s of lines of it. 100 lines will be 2.4 days of Tweets. I perfer to do about 10 days worth. Now go back into TweetLater and click Tweets, and than Upload. Change the start time to 15 minutes or so ahead, and the time between Tweets to 35 minutes. Upload the text file you just made to each account, make sure to change the bottom setting back to minutes instead of hours after each account.

    Step 10: Open up a few Hummingbirds and login to 1 account each. You will be using Hummingbird to follow recently active users. Since you will easyily be able to make dozens of accounts a day I wouldn't suggest trying to target niches, just go with the active users. To find active users you just need to follow those following the most popular users on Twitter. When you click to see who is following a certain person it is ordered in most recent to follow, so this gets you loads of active users.

    You can find the most active users at:

    Code:
    http://twitterholic.com/
    Just use the find users, find the profile, click to view their followers and follow all. It will take about 35-40 minutes for Hummingbird to follow 1k people, which is the daily limit. You can do this with multiple copies of Hummingbird at one time but personally when I run 5 or more some stop following early and I have to start that Hummingbird again. Go down the Twitterholic list and only follow each persons followers once per day to make sure each account has different users it's following.

    Step 11: Rinse and repeat. Tweek parts of the guide as you see needed. They payout to most every country by check once a month on the 1st or 15th depending on your referral amounts.

    I hope this helps some of you out there. Don't get discouraged early on, because the real money comes after you get those first 50 referrals when you start getting $1 each + 25% of whatever they make. I'd suggest keeping an earnings log that you update once or so a day so you can track your progress. If you have any other questions feel free to post and I'll answer as soon as I check the thread.

    CashCrate is a load of shit when you're trying to just earn money without referrals or an easy way to get them. But once you get past that first 50 referrals and get $1 each, it's worth it in my book to spend like 30 minutes a day on it. Just gotta get the hang of it.

    If you're worried about the payment check out their forums there is a thread with over 1,200 posts of payment proofs.

    Did you forget which forum you're on? Tell any admin/account manager you're even a member of this forum and you'd be safe to assume they'd ban you. That's why you mask your referral ID.

    :D

    one question. since we are posting a redirect link, can we combine it with DMR so that referral is blanked? does it work with sites like cashcrate? or should i use a simple redirect?

    working on the other steps at the moment. thanks

    They don't mind blanked referrals. Most of the advertising techniques that are promoted on their forums are offline ones, like leaving business cards in books at the library and stuff like that. So definitely no questions asked.

    use tinyurl for what? masking the url? yes you can do that. but tinyurl is too obvious. it would be better to use a lesser known service like the one mentioned. or if you are lucky enough to have your own site use DMR.

    Thank you very much!
    I've always wanted to start twitter as some secondary income thing, without spending way to much time on it.
    I think this guide has made me start it.

    Using cashcrate is probably very good when your not doing niches.

    I've done a lot of reading recently while researching twitter, while this method promoted has one end in mind its the end of your twitter account if you do it this way.

    Try to find the icon that launches Hummingbird located here:

    Code:
    Hit Start (Bottom left corner of Screen)
    Run
    Type "Local Settings"
    Click "Apps" Folder
    Click "2.0" Folder
    Click ".YXD" Folder. There is also A data folder so it's not the "Data" Folder. I have only 2
    Click ".RNO" Folder. I only had this one to choose from.
    Select and Click the "Humm" folder
    And there is the ".exe" folder.
    Click through the other folders in those folders until you can find the icon that launches the program, than paste the crack over it.

    If you do not automate DMs your accounts will go much longer without being banned. The whole point is being able to make accounts fast enough to where by the time any of your accounts get reviewed for spamming you've gotten many referrals from that one account. I have yet to be banned on an account that I don't have auto-DMs on, with auto-DMs you get more clicks to your link but you can expect to be banned within a day or two. But once again that isn't even a problem once you get the hang of it and can make accounts quickly.

    Looks great, good instructions...

    1 question:

    Once you have created the text file, you say 'Upload to Tweetlater' however in the Add New Tweet, I dont see how I can upload the file! Is it just a copy and paste into the box? Does that mean that if I put 1 tweet per line in the text file it will recognise that if ALL is pasted in the tweet box?

    in tweetlater click on tweets. Under that you will see a row of buttons appear there is a button there labelled upload.

    Two things I would add. If you put a link in every tweet you will get banned real quick.If you dont get about getting banned spam the crap out of it.

    The other thing is vary the time between tweets. otherwise the banhammer is coming down. If you post ever 30 minutes you might as well put a sign on your head saying ban me.

    Personally I create a lot of accounts then follow/unfollow and wait until I have thousands of followers before unleashing more spam than monthy python ever saw.

    It might take a while to build up followers and accounts but once it gets rolling its like a production line.

    This is a very similar method posted by Money2spare on the "welcome back method" but yours are much more detailed i would say especially for newbie.

    Money2spare method is promoting clickbank product while yours is cashrate.

    Anyway, thanks for the efforts of sharing!

    Lets make some cash online!

    "Thanks" button pressed! You deserve it for putting this up.

    There are tons of guides out there to getting referrals to programs like Cash Crate and other GPTs. Once you get dozens of them the OP's technique should really shine. See:

    Nice method but I might do something else rather than cashcrate.

    There is just one thing I'm wondering.
    I like this method, but if you've been doing it for a while won't your ip be banned?

    If you create 50 accounts and at some point they've all been banned, then maybe your ip could be in danger.
    But then again, the twitter creators ain't advanced at all.
