How to Get Free Stuff Online <ul><li>Carl Leighton </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.macbookgratis.com </li></ul>
How this Works <ul><li>Advertisers spend millions of dollars each year finding new customers. Much of this money is spent on middlemen, like the Google AdSense Program, or TV commercials. </li></ul><ul><li>Incentive Freebie Networks (IFW) are simply another middleman. But, rather than simply print ads on their website, they offer free trials of the advertisers’ products. </li></ul><ul><li>For each person that signs up for a trial offer, the IFW makes money. They then use some of that money to pay for the products used to repay the people who signed up. </li></ul>
An Example <ul><li>Say you are looking for an iPod Shuffle. So you search around, and find a website that offers one for just 3 referrals. </li></ul><ul><li>Once you have signed up for the website, you would then complete one of the advertiser offers yourself. </li></ul><ul><li>After this step is done, you simply need to find 3 other people who then sign up using your special “referral” link. This link is given to you by the IFW, and is unique. </li></ul><ul><li>Once all of the offers have been verified, the IFW will then ship the iPod Shuffle directly to your home. </li></ul>
Let’s Begin <ul><li>The first step to getting free stuff online is to choose what you want to receive. This determines what network to sign up for. The list below gives many of the options available. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Apple Computers and Gadgets </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Consoles and Games </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Mobile Phones </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>TV’s and Home Theaters </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Cameras and Camcorders </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sports Equipment </li></ul></ul>
Sign Up <ul><li>Once you have made your choice, go ahead and complete the sign up process for your chosen network. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Word of Advice: Don’t use a false address or email. It can get your account suspended, and it will prevent you from collecting a free item from that network. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>You will need to check for a confirmation email from the IFW. Be sure to check your junk folder for the email, because it tends to end up there. Click on the confirmation link to continue. </li></ul>
Complete an Offer <ul><li>Once your account is verified, you will need to complete one of the advertisers offers. Choose one, click on it, and get started. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>I prefer to complete the offers for the online auctions or the online casino games. Although you have to spend a few dollars initially, you don’t have to keep spending money if you don’t want to. The free offers have a trial period, but still require a credit card. They will also automatically bill you at the end of the trial. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Remember, you have to actually try the service offered. Simply signing up, and then canceling once the offer is credited to you, is fraud, and will cost you your account. Consider yourself warned. </li></ul>
Find Referrals <ul><li>The final step in the process is to find other people to complete the same process as you. In your account page, you will find a referral link. It looks something like this: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>http://apple.freebiejeebies.co.uk/567453 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>This link is different for each user. The one above is actually one of mine. </li></ul><ul><li>To get referrals, you simply need to get people to sign up using that link. Add it to your social network profiles, email signatures, and forum signatures. As long as you don’t spam, simple curiosity will make people check it out. </li></ul>
Tips and Tricks <ul><li>It helps to start out small. Things like an iPod are much easier to earn than an iMac. Likewise, convincing people to sign up becomes easier if you have proof. And an iPod is much easier to carry around with you. </li></ul><ul><li>Do not make any video or article claiming to have found a “hack” or “unlimited points.” Any action that you take that misrepresents an IFW will get you banned. Period. Don’t do it. </li></ul><ul><li>Be creative in your techniques for finding referrals. Make flyers, business cards, and leave them where you can. Who knows what you will accomplish… </li></ul>
