    Hello everyone. Never shared a method on BHW before, but i've found some extremely useful information on this forum so I thought i'd share a nice little earner for those good with viral marketing. I saw someone using this method on whatsapp using url schemes. An URL scheme is something like "fb://" - clicking on this on your mobile will open the Facebook App.

    We're going to be using WhatsApp since you can open Whatsapp and pre-append text using this peice of code:

    Code:
    <a href="whatsapp://send?text=Hey! :)">Click me!</a>
    Paste that HTML and visit your site on your mobile.. click the a href and whatsapp will open and the user can select who to send the message to. I'm not going to spoonfeed the exact method, but here is some dummy code which will force them to invite 10 friends

    Code:
    <script>       c=0;
           var image;
           function fn1(x)
    
    
           {
    
    
           if( /Android|webOS|iPhone|iPad|iPod|BlackBerry|IEMobile|Opera Mini/i.test(navigator.userAgent) ) {
    
    
    // some code..
    
    
           ++c;
           if(c <= 10)
    
    
           {
               window.open("whatsapp://send?text=Hey!");
           }
    
    
           else
               window.open("next.php")
    
    
           }
    
    
           else {
           window.alert("Please invite via your mobile browser");
    
    
           }
    
    
           }
    
    
           function fn2(x)
           {
    
    
           if(c >= 10)
    
    
           {
               window.open("next.php")
           }
    
    
           else
    
    
           {
               window.alert("Please Invite atleast 10 friends to continue You have invited "+c);
           }
           }
           </script>
    and then add some buttons:

    Code:
    <input type="image" src="//i.imgur.com/X5MuFPQ.png" id="b1" name="button" value="click" onclick="fn1(this)" class="button"/>
    <input type="image" src=//i.imgur.com/ojMmcB6.png" id="b1" name="button" value="click" onclick="fn2(this)" class="button"/>
    
    This will force the user to invite 10 friends before being able to press the second button which goes to your CPA offer.

    This doesn't just work on Whatsapp, google for "url schemes" and you can see it works on most popular mobile apps.. you can create so many twists from this.

    Happy earning and going viral!

    Every now and then something comes along that looks good even without the meat and potatoes. Great implementation, and subtle direction OP. Way to go.

    Ok guys, like he said he isn't going to spoon feed this one to you. You're going to have to think outside the box, and imagine ways you can use this to create massive social accounts, or otherwise viral campaigns. That's all. You can find the TECHNICAL aspects of this by following OPs advice, and googling "Url Schemes." OP has pointed out that this "exploit" could be implemented on any of a number of other mobile apps. That means you can build your own apps implementing these strategies, and you can exploit some existing application platforms such as whatsapp to do things you might not have previously considered. You'll have to come up with WHAT those things are yourself.

    Once again I'll re-iterate I think this information is valuable in the right hands. Thanks again OP!

    Smart method for sure but,if you want to try,check if it's legal in your country to spam via whatsapp.
