Over the previous summer, as some of you may know, Diablo 3 was released. The way the items were generated within the game allowed for easy arbitrage on the auction house. Two items with the same name could have wildly different stats, with one being worth several magnitudes more than the other. But since the in game auction house search didn't really have a good way to search for items based on stats, there would often be high stats items up for significantly less than what they were worth, because people would just search for the item by name, and price theirs based on the lowest one. Follow me? I would purchase these items, and then sell these items for what they were worth. My average flip was 400% ROI, with some exceedingly rare items fetching 2000% ROI. Doing this manually, I was making upwards of 20,000,000 gold per day spending about 4 hours on it. At this point I decided to automate the process. I spent the next week creating a bot that would identify and purchase these high value items for me. I also decided to purchase 7 more Diablo 3 accounts, as there was an in-game limit of 20 auctions up at any one time. This limit made it difficult to flip my items effectively, and I'd often have excess items sitting around, losing value. I now had 160 auction slots to work with. I also purchased 100 million gold from chinese sources, to have some working capital. Using VMWare across 2 computers I had 5 instances of my bot running. The process was almost completely automated. All I had to do was log on once a day, price the items out, and sell them... About an hour or two worth of work. I also spent half an hour a day on improving my bot, implementing randomization patterns to appear human, error checking, various other things to make the operation smoother. At this point, I was pulling in well over 200 million gold per day. By this point I'm sure you're asking, "so what! you made a bunch of fake money in a video game!" Well here's what you're missing: Diablo 3 had an in-game real money auction house (RMAH) as well, which effectively and easily converts gold into real money. The going rate for gold (at the time) was between $4-5. Do the math. I was making over $800 a day from 2 hours worth of work. However, the game had serious inflation issues, with gold inflating 50% weekly. Certain high value items would mostly retain their USD value, so I ended up selling mostly those on the RMAH, and selling the rest of my items for gold to continue funding my operation. Of course, my earnings fell over time, but I was still earning a very impressive amount of money. That is, until the developers decided to ruin the gravy train some months later. They not only improved searching algorithms for the auction house, but also gave it an entirely new interface. This effectively broke my bot, and made it easier for players to properly price their items. I did not feel like recoding my bot to work with this new interface, and also the pool of people spending real money was beginning to dwindle, so I stopped all operations. And now to the point of the matter, you won't see this method mentioned anywhere online. Even now, you won't find it anywhere, even though it has been saturated for months and is no longer viable. There are still people making money off this method, but like many methods posted on here, it requires a huge time investment to make a decent amount of money. I would not recommend it. If a method is making someone money, it won't be posted! It's as simple as that. No one wants to ruin their method. Any method you see on here is most likely a speculative idea or worked at some point, but doesn't now. If it does not fall into one of these three, it will get saturated, if not for the simple fact that it's now out in the wild. Don't waste your time with these methods! They will get saturated FAST. I have recently started a website that basically runs itself using a script I developed. I spend 30 mins a day on linkbuilding. A week later I am already making $20 / day off it, and that number will continue to rise as the site is highly scalable. I expect $100 / day within the next month. Without going into specifics, for reasons already mentioned, what I am doing is not even remotely similar to anything that is posted on this site, or others, for that matter. I've tried my fair share of methods on here. I've copied some verbatim... I've twisted some... The result was always less than stellar. No one is going to spoon feed you on how to make money. There's a ton of useful information on here, but you shouldn't take the methods posted very seriously. Develop your own method, and keep it a secret. Your time is valuable, so spend it doing valuable things.
