    Call me stupid but it just hit me that one of the best way to make money doin internet marketing is finding new cash cow methods, testing them, then writing an ebook. My problem is, how do you protect your ebook as im looking to go into the business of method flipping. As of right now i have a method thats bringing in alot of cash, a method that CANNOT and WILL NOT be Saturated but im afraid to sell it..however, @ the same time i understand the potential behind selling an ebook. so wat is one to do??

    I'd be interested. Shoot me a PM if you want with a price and what the method entails.

    Only way you can make money on-line is to teach others on how to make on-line and profit from it?Is that so?

    The best way to avoid piracy is to add it to the BHW do not share list. :)

    I completely agree, if you do this then that will help greatly. Otherwise your ebook will get passed out a lot. Hell it still will from person to person any way you go about it. You just have to market it hard when you first release it and squeeze all that you can out of it while you can.

    I also like wooglin's method.

    Why people who make quality ebooks (I don't mean like those sold on DP and other 4.99 crap) don't make their ebooks as some exe software with license verifications ? I guess that's possible ?? If it is that would certainly drop a piracy rate.

    Why sell a method that cannot be saturated and currently makes you $100k per year running your bots? Why not scale it up to 500k or 1mil a year because if you sold it to 10 people, all of them will want to make as much as possible or am I missing something?

    yes, this method cannot be saturated but i fear that one day someone Blackhat will come across me doing it and you know the rest from there...because as it is, the website im currently running it on already have ppl running cpa offers.....

    as far as why dont i scale it up.. cuz im afraid numbers that incredible might raise red flags and i dont want to be scrutinized.. sometimes it better to drift right below the radar.. yes im aware i can split it across multiple accs but im perfectly happy with where its @ right now.. Im just lookin to bank quickyly off an ebook....

    I'm not sure what youre asking...

    You want to make an eBook, you say you know how, and how all that works, but you're afraid to do one. What do you need from us, a confidence booster?

    YOU CAN DO IT BRO.

    Because most of them are twats that don't really know anything about how to protect that kind of stuff. They might be pros in one way, but it doesn't mean they are pros in publishing.

    They stopped carrying about figuring it out though when they realized that if they just fashion the ebooks to be nothing but upselling tools instead of actually helping people, then they can get those that don't pay for it on that back end. :)

    A verification system is indeed possible like you mentioned, but like I said, they don't care because the bottom line is that most of whats out there, are nothing but well crafted commercials you are buying. :)

    If what you are saying is true, then you forget this ebook business and get things setup on your end to be able to use multiple accounts with your method.

    Start a thread offering a JV setup where people can make money doing nothing and you will share 50% of the revenues with them, and you will do all the work.

    Make sure you setup your campaigns proper so they never know your traffic sources, thats a no brainer. Though you will have to show a little good faith and at least disclose some of what you will be doing so that people know you are not doing something that will result in them losing their accounts or something.

    Be honest the whole way through with your JVs. Let them know how things are going every week or two.

    Just to test the waters, I would recommend having an initial offer to work with 5 people. Setup whatever criteria you like in determining what the five must have. If you are using this forum, I would recommend opening it up only to Jr. Reg and above perhaps. Or something who has X number of 'Thanked', like 10 maybe so you know you are getting someone who is not a noob looking to rip you off or something.

    Without knowing more about the risks involved in this method of yours, I can't offer any more advice.

    If you decide to go this way just shoot me a PM and I will try and help you out with the details of this. I might even ask for a JV too if it turns out to be something I would be interested in. :)

    End result for you will be FAR FAR greater profits than you ever could have seen from an ebook like some pointed out, would be free here, or in some other BH forum in no time.

    I know guys who are doing something like this with adsense accounts to the tune of over 100 accounts. If you just take a little time to get organized, that can be you with this. If it's unlimited, then you got a golden goose, and I just showed you have to get her laying those golden eggs for you. ;) That will be $19.99 now please for the pdf version. :silly:

    i came to the conclusion you dont even have to be banking to sell anytihng. just come across as an authority and get some approval and you can sell dirt

    Because most people would be pi$$ed to get an exe instead of a PDF.
    One reason being, like me, people use Linux/Unix and not bug-ridden Winblows... another being that its probably encrypted and binded to be a FUD PPI.

    I assume you mean JV with others and their adsense?
    Cos theres no way they can have 100 accounts themselves.


    OP - I would second going for a JV, its a no brainer really and has much higher returns. Sure there are gonna be a few tw@ts who try & screw you over, but its there loss once you drop them and theres plenty to take their place.
    Selling it as an eBook... NO NO NO!! lol :eek:
    If anything, take on 10 newbs at $300 a pop and tutor them in your ways for 2 weeks.

    Im quite curious now as to what it is you are doing! lol

    unknown00,

    I would definitely look at doing JV stuff with other people. Scale up your method, don't just sell it and have it get saturated or discovered and blocked (if you're doing black hat).

    Just be sure to keep the keys to your method to yourself.

    Or, if you really want to do an ebook, wait until it looks like your method is still making money but is on the downward slope, and then pump the ebook out, so that you can cash in on the method again before it goes bad...

    Just my thought. If you are looking for a JV let me know, I'd be happy to see what I can do to help (and make money).

    Yes that's what I was referring to. He is doing JVs to gain access to adsense accounts that he uses in his network. He does a 20/80 split I believe because of all his promo costs involved. I suggested 50/50 here only because I don't know all the details about what he has.

    I'm glad everyone agrees with my JV suggestion and killing this ebook stuff. :) ... unknown00, seriously, just arrange to work with others if it's a matter of needing more accounts to scale. It is far more money than you think this ebook stuff will make, and you get to retain control.
