    This is a simple method, it's not really a new concept but I just want to stress the importance of the simplicity because it proves that you do not have to spend 5 hours to make $5. (and yes the title does say meth head to make you wtf)

    As I said, I'm not saying anything that hasn't already been said before, but imho the quickest, easiest way to make some cash is to find people with a problem and provide them a solution to their problem. In fact, this is the basis around which most of IM is designed.

    That being said, a very common "problem" people need to have solved is when they want some big name new product being released. Now, I'm sure you're aware that there are already numerous advertisements (let's use the ipad for example, log into any cpa offer network you are a member of and search through the campaigns for apple products) that deal with this and you are probably thinking no fucking shit. However, something I witnessed (sadly) first hand over the past couple of days would seem to indicate that you people are NOT KEEPING TRACK OF BETA PROGRAM LAUNCHES!

    To be more specific,
    Code:
    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/blog/3542796?page=1#page-comments
    Hopefully if you followed this link you had some gears turning in your head. What I linked to was a post that Blizzard (a video game company, if you are not aware) made announcing their launch of the beta program for Diablo 3. This post allowed comments (although there were some requirements to post, none of which I met) and at the peak this post was receiving roughly around 5-10 comments PER MINUTE. That is an assload of people in one place all wanting the same thing. Folks, it does not get any easier than that. All that would have to be done in a situation like this is get people hyped up and get them willing to fill out some short bs offer. The money made off of something like this would not be fantastic, but to some newcomers, seeing even $20 for something requiring so little effort can be such a great motivation.

    Now some of you are probably thinking "Well gee, Mr.Battlepope, this doesn't do us any good because now there are 50 people posting comments on this whine whine etc". STFU and stop for a second. Take the information here and apply it elsewhere with a twist. Do a little research on some products that are going to have a beta launch soon, you will find loads of video games with beta programs. Then find a high traffic blog/forum dealing with this product(because it will blow up on product beta release) and figure out a way to monetize it. Yes, you will probably run into some walls here and there in your efforts, but that is what these forums are for, a helpful community and spreading ideas.

    BHW is a great source of information, but it is just that: information. Reading threads on this forum will not magically make 50k appear in your bank account, so do yourself a favor: stop spending hours reading methods, just learn from others and figure out what does and doesn't work, apply your knowledge with hard work, and watch the results. Also, stop doing methods word for word because that is what causes oversaturation and ruins something for everyone, and I say this because I will not be surprised if i check the post I linked to earlier to find it full of generic spam from other members here.
    Good luck, and thanks.
    P.S. and to everyone who says this has been shared before, it seems a lot of people have forgotten about monetizing simple things like this and tend to try to overcomplicate everything.

    Well I sincerely hope that this is of some use to at least someone. I'm really looking forward to checking that post tomorrow to find it has been overrun with spam. Take that Blizzard!
