    I've often been jealous of forums legends like 7878 and Franklin Hatchett, all I've ever wanted is a money making method named after me.

    I concluded if I come up with a method that meet the following criteria, the Ste Fishkin name will stick:
    • easy to do
    • no barrier of entry
    • a method that's been done before
    • a complete idiot proof guide to doing basic shit
    • something I have not actually done

    My grand children will once ask me "what were you doing when you were 25", I can't say I fought the germans like my grand dad did, I can't say I solved world hunger or cure cancer... but I can say I changed the world with the Ste Fishkin amazon method. What I am about to tell you will change lives.

    So the basic idea behind this method is simple, when a user clicks on an amazon affiliate link a cookie is placed on their computer for 30 days. You get a commission on any sales during this period and after a while you get paid. The amount of commission you get depends on how many sales you make and the amount of money depends on what the person buys.

    Note: They do not have to buy the thing you linked them too, they could buy fucking anything from amazon during this 30 day period and you get paid.

    This is the core fundamental basics of amazon, the more people you push through your links, the more people have your cookie, the more likely you are to make a sale and the more you make.

    Now normally people go about producing large review sites and amazon stores to make money with amazon, but there really is an easier way. Forums...

    Forums are great places and you can find them on almost any topic, the ones you want to focus on are hobby forums where people are buying items. In my example I'm going to use Reef Keeping, the hobby of keeping marine fish alive in a small glass cube.

    A fantastic forum for this is reefcentral.com - there are many others I could pick, and this applies to any niche. If you find a forum with 250,000 members or more... this is totally worth your while.

    So it's time to pick our amazon product, anything at all to do with the niche of reef keeping will do, this coral pro reef salt (?) will do fine:
    http://www.amazon.com/Red-Sea-ARE11...&qid=1457171581&sr=8-2&keywords=reef+crystals

    So, let's head back to reef central.

    [​IMG]

    We can see the most popular forum by replies is the "reef discussion" forum, so it makes most sense to post there.

    The post we are going to put up is very simple, the entire idea of it is to engineer people to click the links. Most people in the real world do not know about amazon's affiliate program, they will not see what it is you are doing... they do not recognise affiliate links or anything to make them think "WTF, this dick heads trying to make money off us..."

    So, this is a template for a post I would use:

    That is it...

    It's a very simple and pleasant way to ask for help, and remember... if you're on a forum you're there because its something you are passionate about and most people are not ass hole trolls, they are there to help people. If you play the role of the new guy looking for help, you'll trick them into clicking the link and placing cookies on their computer for you to make money with.

    Here is another template you could use.

    The idea is very simple, play on the emotions of people who care about something and want to help people and be deliberately vague in your posts so they are forced to click the link to help you.

    That's it...

    No fucking content writing necessary, no domains, websites, hosting, wordpress... Just forum accounts.

    Anyone can do this, take action warriors!

    Here's some amazon earnings I found on google images

    As much as I like this method, I think you are mistaken in thinking the amazon cookie lasts for 30 days. It lasts for 24 hours only. So, you only get credited for whatever the person buys within a 24 hour period.

    However, if a person adds it to the cart but does not checkout, you will get credited for the sale if he checksout anytime within 90 days.

    https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/associates/help/t2/a11

    Also, another possible issue could be that amazon may not like you posting your affiliate links directly on forums. They have been trigger happy lately. If you start getting most of your sales through this, I think this might put your account at a serious risk.

    Thank you for share! No doubt, The method is interesting.

    But when I read this
    I am thinking is it OK to play on the emotions of people to make money? Worth it?

    Oh FFS dude.

    How can I ever be like Franklin Hatchett if I actually do the method myself.

    Since when do cookies last for 30 days? Amazon is smarter than that, it would lead to a bunch of spam. Case in point here.

    pretty smart idea if it was 30 days though

    I thought your real money making method was selling keywords like "Buy Golf Clubs Online" to Gullible dopes for $499

    Or am I missing something ?

    guys I just wanted a money making method named after me, does it matter if it works or not?

    I doubt the FH method worked either, why are you all picking on me :(

    I came into this thread through the new posts feature, wasn't interested too much until I noticed the word "reef" while scrolling through what you've written. I was like this dude must be epic, he's making it real big and he's making it from ASS. Unfortunately I realized you were a big disappoint and you were on about some fake reef. Reef to me is ASS. The real deal man.
