This method is nothing new but I'll share with you my twist on it. I've used this technique from time to time, when I need some extra cash fast, but if you're willing to do the (little) work involved, you can turn this in a long term business. Here's what's covered: 1. How I choose free zip/email submits. 2. How to build laser targeted email lists. 3. What to say in the promotional mail. 4. How to send 12k emails / day almost free 1. Best Offers Obviously you will need a CPA account to get started. Head over to you Free stuff / Email submits section and scan through the offers. Although general offers like a Free iPad will work, the narrower the audience is, the more success you will have. You need to chose offers where you can visualize the group of interested people. I'll give you some pointers here, but you need to make the decision by yourself. Don't worry, usually if you exclude the general offers, remaining ones can be grouped by interests. Country specific (non US), beauty products, women apparel, sport fans, gamers, internet marketers, these make specific niches and you will have more success converting them. And don't worry, excluding non US groups, you can also hit them with generic offers after the initial stage. 2. Scraping emails For this step I use GSA Email Spider but you can use any spider you can configure accordingly. After you've decided about what offer to promote, you need to gather leads. I will demonstrate this stage with some examples I had used before. --- Example 1 At some point there was a free tarot reading (CA only) over at MB. Notice I've chosen a country specific - Canadian offer. BONUS TIP: Here you can go the extra mile and, if you're not familiar with the certain country, you can head over to wikipedia and save a list of the top cities by population. Now go do some Google searches for "[country name] forum" and "[city name] forum". Do this for all the previously researched cities. Each time you do a search go through the first 10-20 results (never beyond second page) and save a list of country & city related forums. --- --- Example 2 The famous free NFL Jersey is obviously related to NFL fans, which also is your "seed" niche. For this offer you should search Google for "NFL forum" or "NFL fans forum" and for every nfl team using "[nfl team] forum". Save a list of nfl fans & nfl teams related forums. --- Visit each forum saved and try to find some random user profile. If it's available for members only you need to register and save the credentials for further use with GSA. Now here's the tricky part. For each forum you will need to find the "memberlist" page. While for most forums this will be available from the menu ("Members List"), some have it hidden or disabled. If is disabled, no luck, head over to the next one, but if it's hidden it migh be worth to do a Google search for "site:domainname.tld/forum/ inurl:memberlist" (use the actual forum url). Once you've found a valid forum, visit the memberlist and get a feel of the permalink structure (browse through memberlist pages. page 1, page 2, last). Some forums have the pages delimited by their number (ex: page 1 has &p=1 in url, page 2 has &p=2, etc) while others will jump groups of members (ex: page 1 will have &start=50, page 2 will have &start=100, etc). Now you will need to save in a txt file all memberlist pages, but don't do it by hand, use excel or some other formula to generate the pages. Copy from the forum first page, second page and the last one and auto generate the pages between by replacing the unique identifier you found earlier (page number or group of members). Save this txt file separately for each forum (ex: forum-name_memberlist.txt). By now you should have a couple if not several memberlist files related to you CPA offer. For each of this list you will do a GSA campaign. Check "Use URL as start" and If the forum requires login, complete the credential saved before. Check to parse sites only 1 lvl deep (so from memberlist page will only crawl member profiles), check don't parse external sites and import the forums memberlist, generated earlier (forum-name_memberlist.txt), for URL's in Queue. Now hit resume and let GSA do it's magic. When the program finishes, save the gathered emails (email only) in a new txt file (forum-name_emails.txt). Repeat the GSA crawl for every forum-name_memberlist.txt saved for this offer. At the end of this step you should have several email list (forum-name_emails.txt) extracted from forums related to your offer. 3. What to say? This section will be very short, I will illustrate with messages I've sent myself. No matter what offer or forum, the From field in the inbox must NOT reveal a email address, it must show a first name or a forum nickname. Again, regardless of the offer or targeted forum, the subject line must be something like "New Message at %forumname% Forum". For the body, here's some messages I've sent: --- Example 1 - free tarot reading. Code: Hi, As you know from %forumname% I gave away 10 free online tarot reading sessions to mark my new website launch. All spots were taken and I wanted to let you know first that I'm giving away 10 more sessions. Hurry and secure your spot at CPAOFFERPAGE before I update my forum thread. Best wishes, WHATEVER --- Example 2 - free NFL jersey Code: Hi there, If you didn't catch my thread over at %forumname% about the free NFL jersey giveaway, here's the website again: CPAOFFERPAGE I know they have a limited supply but it seems there still are some jerseys left. Hurry and get one for yourself before they run out. Best wishes, WHATEVER Basically, what you need to do in the message is point out you're also a member at their forum, you're well known there (writing threads, helping people), your offer is/was public on the forum and this is not just a spam mail and for some reason the offer was renew or that is still available but only for a limited time / number of items. Also emphasis scarcity by mentioning that the new offer will soon be available for everyone so they must act fast. Be short and concise and direct them to the cpa offer. 4. Spend only $2 one time and send 12k emails each day Because I saw a rising in threads asking for guides on how to mass mail, here's one and it costs almost nothing. Buy a cheap domain using a promo code or even get a .info (max $1.99). Register for 1 cent hosting at hostgator. Install Interspire (available in the download section here). Limit interspire to send max 500 emails / hour (hostgator limitations), that's 1 mail every 8 seconds. Set your sending email with a first name or nickname (I mentioned this earlier). Create a new campaign for each forum, Before you import the gathered emails you will need to move them in a CSV file with the first column containing the emails and a second one filled with the FORUM_NAME (actual forum name) for every email, like this: Code: [email protected][email protected][email protected] When importing the CSV file set first column as emails and second one as FIRSTNAME (in interspire). Assign each email list to the corresponding interspire forum campaign. Create the template so where you need to mention the forum's name to enter the wildcard %firstname%. Send each campaign, one after another. This way, you can send 12k emails per day for every domain hosted at hostgator. If you need to send more emails per day just repeat the above steps, register new domain, hosting and install interspire. I know this is a long guide but it is a sure hit. You can do it over and over again, for any offer. And don't forget, after sending targeted emails you can always spam to death all lists with generic iPad offers while still using the same forum member angle.
