Then, you post ads on Craigslist offering a product offered for free by the site for well under market value. When someone emails you, you respond and say that you’ve already sold it, but you can tell them where you got the product for free, giving them your affiliate link. They sign up, complete an offer, and you get $50‐$350. 1. Sign up for an offer site. There are two offer sites I use for this method: 1. xbox3604free.com. Pros: This site offers $350 per 6 people you refer. It also has more offers people are willing to do from more reputable companies, so people you refer are more likely to complete the offers. Cons: You can’t get a payout until $350, and it can take up to 24 hours to get your payment. It also only has the Xbox360. 2. gifts.innovus.net. Pros: Multiple offers that can be completed including Xbox360, iPhone, and Playstation3. This means you can diversify more easily and increase your revenue. The payout is $50 per referral that completes an offer. Cons: The offers that have to be completed are from less reputable companies, thus referrals are less likely to complete them. 2. Complete an offer a. For xbox3604free.com, I recommend doing one of the following offers. 1. Napster ‐ If you have a credit card, this one is easy to cancel online and they’re a super reputable company. 2. Photocubbie – same deal, also need a credit card.
Copyright 2009 Karbin Inc. 3. Jamster – This one costs some money, but no credit card required, just a cell phone. b. For gifts.innovus.net, you can simply convert a completed referral into being a finished offer for you. Otherwise, do the web‐hosting plan – you can be anywhere in the world and use paypal to pay. Note: If you have PayPal and are based in one of a few countries (definitely USA, probably some others) you can create a virtual credit card that only works for one use, so you don’t have to remember to complete free trials. Go to the Paypal plug‐in page to install it. It’s in the left‐hand sidebar, under ‘tools’. 3. Make an email account.

Outlook 2002: http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=70770 Outlook 2003: http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=13278 Outlook 2007: http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=86373 4. Set up your outlook account to check for mail every twenty minutes. (from dummies.com) 5. Setting auto responder: 1.Open Outlook Express Email program.

Go to the first one and select the box where the subject line contains specific words. 4. Go to the Box 2 and tick the box that says Reply with message 5. Go to box number three and click on contains specific words 6. Type in what words will be in the subject line of the email when they email you. You want to make one of these for each product you’ll be selling. Personally, I put in one for subject like with “xbox”, one for “ps3” one for “playstation” and so forth. 6. RECAP: So what we have so far is an email account with an autoresponder set up that will reply every 20 minutes to emails. You also have two accounts set up with free ipod sites. 7. The email from step 6: For this one, we’re setting up the messages that you said “reply with” in step 5. You need to create one message for xbox and one message for ps3. The messages I use are as follows Hey,Im sorry, Ive sold the xbox already, but thanks for your interest. I might haveanother in a few days, but if youd like to get it for free you can sign up attinyurl.comThe offers are pretty easy, i recommend doing XX and YY offers. Then you canget the Xbox for free - thats what I do to make money on the side. Regards, Noah Pryor

The tinyurl.com is a Tinyurl.com translation of your affiliate link. Just go to tinyurl.com and put in your affiliate link. This makes it so that you automatically respond whenever an email is sent to you saying you’re sold out, but telling them where to get it for free. They’ll sign up because they have your testimony that it’s a legitimate site, and they can get an xbox 360 or ps3 for free – it’s win/win. 8. Write your Craigslist posting. You need to write several variations of each of these, because Craigslist has a duplicate post detector. I usually do something like this: title: Xbox 360 for sale, new in box ‐ $150. Selling Xbox 360 – itʼs new in box, all accessories with it, thereʼs nothing wrongwith it. Iʼm selling it so cheap because I already have one and donʼt need thisone. Please email me using the email above. Box is sealed.<picture of xbox 360>Note on pricing: Don’t set the price on the Xbox 360 too low, if it I people will see it as suspicious and won’t want to email you, or if they do email you, they will be skeptical about the legitimacy of the offer. They may think you’re a scammer, and will probably tell you such in profanity‐laced emails. Note on pictures: Some pictures you can use are attached in a folder 9. Post on Craigslist! Go to Craigslist.com, choose a city – I recommend Houston, Dallas, New York City, etc to start off, and then expanding. Post an ad in each city under electronics for both the Xbox 360 and the playstation 3. Once you do those two and get comfortable with it you can expand into televisions and other goods. With innovus.net, you can advertise any product, because they’ll ship you any
Copyright 2009 Karbin Inc. product ‐ $50 for every referral. For example, if you had three referrals, you could get any product up to $150 dollars in value. However, if the product isn’t explicitly listed on the “choose your gift page”, then people are much less likely to sign up and complete an offer. 10. That’s it! You’re done – you can tweak your methods and experiment with other offer sites, but really all you have to do is keep posting ads and expanding to a variety of cities and the money will start coming in. 11.
