    Hello,

    What do you think about following torrent method. Do you think this marketing method is still worth of trying:

    1) The user downloads your torrent. He opens the file and finds it is
    password-protected. However, you have attached the password file.
    The password file tells them to visit your website to get the password.

    2) The user goes to your website and sees an email form. The user types
    in his email. Once he submits his information, he is automatically
    redirected to your Clickbank hoplink, which redirects to a product
    sales page. If the user buys the product, your Clickbank account is
    credited with a percentage of the sale. You will effectively be
    gathering emails and generating sales all at once. You can sell the
    email list or broadcast offers to them and make thousands of dollars
    per email.

    3) The user receives a password in his email after confirming his email is
    real. He unzips the password-protected zip file and finds the file is
    legit, so he seeds/shares the torrent file.

    4) The torrent spreads. 1 seed turned into 2 seeds. 2 seeds turned into 4
    seeds. 4 seeds turned into 8 seeds. The effect is exponential or
    multiplies. Your income from selling the Clickbank product begins to
    multiply with the torrent.

    5) After you get about 50+ seeds, you free your upload bandwidth by not
    sharing that torrent anymore. You create a new torrent and begin
    sharing that; thus creating a new revenue stream.

    6) You email all your users with more Clickbank hoplinks convincing
    them to buy. They buy the products and you have just created yet
    another easy revenue stream by just simply emailing to your list.

    See attachment for more information.

    What do you want to sell them?

    All in all, if your torrent doesn't get to fast deleted, what the biggest problem is, it's a good method for getting more from torrents.

    This is an old method and big torrent sites like tpb pick up on password protected files pretty quickly and ban your account

    In my experience 2 things happen. One you are reported on the torrent site and the torrent is taken down, eventually you get banned. and two, the quality of the traffic is really, really low. They are only following to get the password, they are not interested in being sidetracked. The method is fairly old so most won't even fall for it, they will (report you maybe and) move on to find what they are looking for.

    I also found that the bigger the file size the more likely you would get banned.

    This is just one man's puny opinion and as always you should investigate this yourself to find out if it works for you, or if you can spin it any better than I did.

    Put yourself in the mindset of the average torrent user.

    Do you really think that they are going to be in the mood to purchase a product while they are downloading free movies/music/games?

    Thats prpbably what he is doing.

    There is money to be made on torrents though, just need to be creative, ie make them think they are getting something for free. I do anywhere from $20to $100 a day using torrents with 1 affiliate. Just depends on how much time I put in. And you can do even more if you can get a torrent to go viral. I'm still looking for a solution to fake the number of seeds and peers.:D

    lol, international zip submits... thats an oxymoron right there

    to the OP: your fatal flaw is in the existence of comments on torrent sites... thats the problem with putting a static password on a file. ie. first comment: this guys a douche spamming his afflinks, the pass is "thiswasabadidea123"

    Thanks but it's not a zip submit or other cpa, its adult friend finder.

    And if you can spoof the seeds pm me and I can go over my method.

    password protecting a torrent pisses off the average torrent user what i would suggest is find a hot movie/software and repack it but have it be a site where they can go to watch or download what ever it was that they were suppose to be getting and then use a cpascript to monetize it

    why not just post your torrents from a cheap offshore server and use Seedking to inject the trackers to rank in the top 5? It uses UDP injection techniques and there's proxy support built in.. My buddy is the programmer for the project, torrentspoofing.com
