Two Tactics To Get Free Content The Easy Way

    I actually thought of this a few weeks back and was going to post it on here, but then I thought it dumb lol. THEN, I was on Harros site and saw he made a post awhile back in 09 about free content and how to get it a different way. I actually am a content provider, but sometimes its just a pain in the ass to write write write for nothing in return (short term anyway). Anyway, usually I just lurk, but I figured since so many people were looking for content on here, maybe I could make my mark. I didn't see anyone posting anything like this yet - if so, sorry about that!

    First, you have to get a few accounts going on some of these freelancer sites:

    Code:
    Elance.com 
    Aquent.com
    Adveres.com ? another cool marketplace for freelancers.
    Ework.com 
    Freelance Auction 
    Freelance Auction Network 
    Freelance.com 
    Freelance Writers 
    Freelancefree.com 
    Freelancewriting.com
    Freelancewebprojects.com
    Freelanceseek.com 
    Getafreelancer 
    Guru.com 
    Ifreelance.com
    Projectlance.com
    Scriptlance.com 
    Freelancer.com
    etc

    It can ultimately be ANY freelancer site, as long as its a site where WRITERS can bid on content projects.

    Secondly, you need to post a job. Yea, you should see where I am going with this already. But, if not, Ill clue you in. Our company places a lot of bids and a lot of posts on these freelance sites and one thing I notice a lot of are project posters looking for content that want "samples".

    I try to make my post pretty legit so it doesn't sound too spammy or fake. Something along the lines of:

    "We are looking for content writers that would like to make $800 a month writing content for us. This content will include website content, blogs and articles ranging from 400 words to 600 words each. Each article must be edited and unique! All we ask from our bidders is to please provide a sample on blah blah blah. If we find that this piece is anywhere else, we will not be choosing you as the winning bid."

    I know this sounds too good to be true, but it's not. I mostly use this tactic for our own business website for article marketing. When asking for the type of content (blah blah blah) you can ask for something specific ie; The Keywords for the content are: example, 1, 2, 3, whatever. Or you can be broad about it and just ask them for a sample that is unique.

    Then, you have tons of bids, which you can weed out if they don't provide a sample. And you get people that actually PM you with their samples. Nine out of ten times they will send a unique piece of content - which you can then take a use however you see fit. You can even spin this a few times if that's your thing.

    ====
    Tactic #2:

    Since we DO have a content and Internet marketing site, we are always looking for writers to join our company when they visit our website. So, one thing we have implemented is an application form. This simply states for the writer that in order to join the team, they must write a content piece. In our case, we made it on Wine & Cheese Pairings so we could article market our Wine and Cheese store online. I would say we get about 5 articles almost every single day that are 100% unique.

    Most of these writers don't do article marketing or anything like that, so they have no need for the article in the future. This is the content you are stealing to market your own sites, or whatever you are using the content for. Again, you can be specific and tell them that in order to join the team, they have to write about whateverwhatever or you can just have them write about anything.

    The point is - free CONTENT. If its sh*t content, throw it out. There's always more where it came from. If you really are hard up, and you need that content, read through it quickly, fix anything that sounds retarded, spell check, grammar check (I like pro.spellcheckplus.com) and you are done. Took you 1.3 seconds to edit it rather than 30-45 minutes to write it.

    By the way, you can also do this with rewrites. Take a rewrite, attach it to your post on the freelance site, and say - "I need rewrites. Please write a rewritten sample of this article." Voila. Free content rewrites.

    Try it out.

    P.S sites like Freelancer*com MAKE you pay $5 to post a bid. However, if you do not choose a bidder and you cancel the project, you get your money back right away. So, take $5, use it, reuse it, rinse and repeat. Pretty simple and incredibly cost efficient.

    116 views and no thanks? Booo. I have seen a lot more of these "sample" posts on Freelancer.com as of late. If I am bidding on a job and mention my username on here, just try to be a little honest and not screw over the person lol that suggested you DO this tactic!

    I wouldn't do that. It's against my principles - I like to pay people who did a good job and deserve to be payed - and also I don't see it as a scalable thing to base your business on. What would happen if 4 out of 10 people that require articles would do it like this, just for the free content and canceling their bid requests. You'd have everybody stop giving custom samples. They would write a few articles about whatever and always give those as samples.

    Tell us OP, do you consider yourself a successful marketer? I am only asking because I have a theory that if someone has to cheat he is not really making much. I prefer to be so well off that I can afford to pay good wages. What so you think?

    As I actually said in my post above, I am a content provider (and marketer) and I do consider myself to be plenty o' successful.

    BTW this is a black hat forum. You see people everyday "cheating" people, so why I am getting hung with a noose, I'm not sure LOL. But, whatever.

    Blackhatworld is not about how to cheat people, or how to screw them for their hard work! Such people, who screw or cheat people arent welcomed to BHW and are dumpted here : http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/f31-shit-list/

    Blackhat doesnt really point to screwing, cheating of kicking out an individual for the work he do!! If people here try to cheat someone, that would be either Google, Facebook, Craiglist and so on! Ripping a person for his work isnt called a Tactic, but should be trashed right away!

    And for guiding us to be a Dick, and for spoonfeeding people how to get a person work for free, you need Thanks? What else do you need? + Reps?


    Thank God that, out of those 116 views you had, no one - Repped you, and pray that the coming views will make you no harm!

    This is the scummiest method I have ever read. Its $1 for 100 words which is nothing, ripping people off and wasting their time for a few hundred words is very trashy.
    OP- you fail!

    I for one am not hanging you. It's a cruel world so if it's not you or me, it's somebody else that would to such things. Besides most cheap content providers are rehashing heavily (an euphemism for copy & paste) so it's stealing too.

    My point was that it is a lot more rewarding to reach a point where you actually want to spend money for the sake of sticking it to the tax man. I love it when my business is having so much expenditures that we have to pay peanuts. So I don't mind overpaying. Or buying 10 of the latest game rigs every 3 months or so. Write offs ftw :)

    Thinking that cheating other people is working will never get you to a phase when where you see e.g. 'cheap airline tickets' you'd be like 'meh'.

    That's what I was trying to say.

    Not a nice method. You can do it but it's not a long term thing. Karma is a bitch, you know.

    Sorry... but thumbs down to this thread....

    Stealing someone's time and selling them fake dreams is something I would like to do to you so that you know what the other person goes through.

    I can understand playing around with a cpa offer that barely takes a minute or two of a person's time, but to write an article you need to place your ass on your desk for a hour or even longer, sometimes battling all kinds of disturbances.

    Some newbie article writers take half a day to churn out one article. Anyways "what goes around comes back">

    You are only adding further "SHAME" by requesting a thank you for such a thread...You can't handle the fact that no one thanked you for a post ((You are only getting a sense of what it feels when you dont get paid for your work/contribution, though you just wrote this on your free time)) If mere thanks matters a bit to you, then dollars matter a lot more to others out there.

    "extremephp" has already expressed rest of my thoughts.

    lol this thread and the two negative feedbacks on my reputation crack me up. Thousands upon thousands of people on this forum, and they all use spinners. Hey guess what doofus? Guess where people GET content FOR the spun content? They steal it. So do yourself a favor and before you open your big dumb mouth - THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE SAYING!
