    Congrats on your success!!!

    When you surpass your goals and expectations it's a wonderful felling.

    Inquiring minds will want to know what free traffic methods you used.

    Please advise.

      Thank u. I used social networking sites, put up a nice pic and add as many friends as i can a day. The more friends you add a day the more traffic. Put a video on your profile and a sign up button under the video and also make the video autoplay. I used youtube since i know how to rank well and get on the first page of results.

        so what are you doing to replace that ?

      glad to hear.... so you could say promote a dating site.... setup a profile of a woman with some info and whatnot, then you're just mass adding friends (single guys) and getting conversions that way.

      interesting...

        What tools do you use? Especially if your on a mac
        {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[1436985].message }}
        • Profile picture of the author tysaustin
          I dont have a mac so I wouldnt know what tools to use for that. But yea when using social sites I typically jus add people set up my profile about what im offering but never message people about it unless they request info because you will get your account deleted fast by just messaging people about your product. Videos are the best way to show people about your product so just put a video on the profile so u wont have to explain to people on what ur offering or selling. If they like the video they will check out your site. I have gotten over 1,000 visitors a week to my site just using social media. So if u cant pay for advertising this is a great free way to get traffic.

        Idk I havent tried promoting dating offers yet but that could work. Ive seen some people setup a profile of a woman and message me about them wanting to talk to me on the dating site they were promoting so they could get me signed up.

      Ranked well for what? Actually I dont use facebook right now. You cant add that many friends on facebook at a time or your account will get deleted. I used myspace and tagged because u can put a video on autoplay on your profile and add more people on those social sites.

        Hey Ty, Did you do any sort of CPA marketing prior to joining Lidango? I went to their website to sign up as a publisher and they want to know info about my website. I have not yet started CPA but I have been studying it for about 6 months, just been too busy to start.. but I'm ready now! I build websites for people all the time, but I have not created a website for myself for marketing any sort of CPA offers. Did you have a website when you joined? Any suggestions on getting accepted?

        Thanks!

          ty,

          thanks dude, the dating stuff is easy money i think.... hmm.... so you could setup a profile on myspace (or whatever site).... of a hot/cute girl, with some text....

          what type of stuff are you putting in the profile?

          I've seen these before some have banner ads for the offer, others have a text link within the profiles themselves for the offer... (like free ipods/iphones)

          difference from what you said you're doing is you're not messaging ppl... you're just mass adding ppl to get new friends, they check out your profile, watch a video (any suggestions on what works best for the video?) and they click a link or type in the url from there.

          you get paid.

          gonna check out that adder software tonight...

          wonder how to make this stuff FTC compliant .... because the profile is essentially an add. i guess you'd have to put the disclaimer somewhere or something.... "advertisement" or "compensated affiliate".... last thing i'd want is the feds on your rear end.

            I believe this is a blackhat technique called e-whoring.

              redz, lol never heard of that before.... sounds fitting i guess.

              If you're not emailing anyone, just mass adding friends, i don't think its that bad? if they're interested from there, they'll click the link. if not, they're not going to hear from you again...

              now if you're messaging people, thats bad, i wouldn't do that....

            Yes I just put a video on the profile and under it a button that says start now and after they click it it takes them to my landing page. No I dont need a disclaimer because the profile isnt an ad it only has a video and a link at the bottom of the video.

    I have heard great stuff about Lidango, before. Good to see you are doing well, although some are hesitant to use social media if the cpa network allows it then you're half good.

    Tysaustin, looks like that second link could be an affiliate link, I assume, which is not allowed. If it isn't, nevermind.

    Lidango is great but they are normally pretty straight shooter about whitehat and transparent marketing.

    But agreed, they are one of my favorite networks and have great offers.

            Oh ok, i think your using the 1 month free tril. becouse if the tool you use is friend adder elite, it costs more than $120 for one that works for multiple networks, although you can get it cheaper for each network. i think its about $30 if your getting it for say just 1 network like twitter or utube.
            if anybody wants it its friendadderelite, i havnt used it myself so i dont know if the trial version works all the way, but if you used the same one then it must work.
            By the way if you do some search on cnet and other download sites, you can find some basic friend adders for free.

    Be careful with this strategy. Myspace and Facebook consider this spam and will come after the network. I know as I just settled a suit with them. We had an affiliate running to a blog lander and then to us and had no idea it was social spam traffic. They don't take kindly to this stuff. This person had a link on their profile and was just adding friends to get them to come to their profile and click on their link.

    Just trying to give you all a heads up and word of warning. As they will come after the network and I think in most networks TOS at this point they will give up your info for myspace and facebook spam because most networks require this to settle most suits.

    Hate to rain on your parade plenty of ways to make money not spamming myspace/facebook out there. Be careful and get rich!

        Personally if I was going to invest my time into learning to do something. I'd want it be able to scale well and not risk legal action. So the short answer is yes.

    I'm curious...after looking at your conversions...how are you averaging 96% conversions and not getting questioned by your AM?

    Did about $20,000 with Lidango, have to say good network but the main guys I worked with there left, so I pretty much did the same, great network though, professional and good backend system.
