It's been a while since I've written up a method and it's been even longer since I gave one away for free, so I thought it was about time. This won't make you rich, but if you can fog a mirror, you can make a few bucks with it. So why "the hat trick"? Well, in hockey a hat trick is when the same player scores three goals in the same game. With this method, you're going to make money from three different sources thereby killing three birds with one stone. Actually, if you're smart, you might be able to pull income from FOUR sources. Best of all, this is mostly white hat - it's just a way to maximize your profits. So the method is to give people what they want. Yep, simple isn't it? Give people what they want, and you get what you want - which is money. It's nice how the world works that way sometimes. You are going to find things or answers that people are desperately searching for, and you are going to help them locate them. This will become more clear in a minute, just hang in there. Example: I just went over to Yahoo Answers and looked at some questions. Here's a hot one... "Are there any Pokeman Platinum cheat codes that work in the U.S.?" So let's say you go out and find some cheat codes that work in the U.S. If you've got a website or a blog, make a post with the cheat codes in them (this will still work if you don't have one, you can either just go get a Blogger blog, or just put the codes in a document). Now, are you going to answer the question and link to your post with the cheat codes? Hell no. First, you are going to create an account with LinkBucks (see my sig below). LinkBucks is basically a link shortening service (kind of like TinyURL) except that they pay you when someone clicks on the link. If you choose, the "Intermission" ad, you get paid the most. So you create your account with LinkBucks. Then, are you going to answer the question with a LinkBucks link that points to your blog post? Hell no. We've got more money to make first. You are also going to create an account with ShareCash (again, see my sig). ShareCash is a file uploading site like Rapidshare or Mediafire. The difference is that the user needs to complete an offer first before they can download the file, paying you $0.20 to $1.00 per download. So are you going to answer the question with a LinkBucks link that points to your ShareCash download link to download a text document containing the cheat codes? Hell no. The document that you upload to ShareCash is going to say, "Turns out ShareCash doesn't allow cheat codes to be uploaded, so just go to my blog post here to find the cheat codes." Then you paste a link to your blog post in the document. Then, on that blog post, you are going to install the CPA Lead gateway (see my sig below once again). You can read more about the CPA Lead gateway here... http://www.blippitt.com/caution-earnings-are-about-to-explode Basically, the user hits your page and then is prompted to, you guessed it, complete an offer in order to view your "protected content" - which gets you paid. See an example here... http://www.blippitt.com/club-penguin-easter-egg-hunt-2009-eggs-and-bonus-cheats So, let's recap... 1) Find a hot question or topic to answer, or find a rare video, etc. 2) Post the answers to the question or the video to your blog. 3) Protect that post with the CPA Lead gateway. 4) Create a Word doc or PDF file with a link pointing to your blog post. 5) Upload the document to ShareCash. 6) Answer the question with a LinkBucks link pointing to your ShareCash link. Question --> LinkBucks --> ShareCash --> CPALead --> Answer I said you might even be able to earn from four sources. Of course, a savvy marketer will work affiliate links into the answer as well. If someone is looking for cheap or rare concert tickets, work in your StubHub or Ticketmaster affiliate link. Be creative. Don't limit yourself to Yahoo Answers. Find questions in other forums that you can answer with this technique. Oh, and very important, CPA Lead does NOT allow porn or adult content. They will also ban you if you try to fake people out. Don't post a fake video link that doesn't work and then try to protect it with the gateway. Be sure you really have something of value to give your user or you will get banned. Also, don't post ShareCash links on BHW. They're not allowed here. cguru: Find more money-making ideas here... http://www.blippitt.com/tag/make-200-per-day Have fun!
