The second method of making money in the Freebie Industry involves getting paid directly from the Freebie Site for referring others to complete offers. This is the method that makes you the real money over the longer term.
As mentioned before, the limitation of method 1 is that there are only a certain number of offers, many of which are similar from Site to Site. Since you can only do an offer once, that limits the number of sites that you can go green on. I haven't seen 1 person that has been able to green on 20 sites. If you are that one unseen person, I would love to meet you. Let me know so that I can write an article about you.
The beauty of this method is that you no longer have to complete offers. Your main concern is getting referrals, and for every referral you can receive anywhere between $10 and $60, depending on the site. Can you see how that adds up? Check out my post entitled The Freebie Equation to see what the earning potential in this method is.
The Project Payday Lie
There are a few things to keep in mind while doing this. As greatful as I am to Project Payday for introducting me to this awesome industry, I will be honest with you and let you know up front that they tend to exaggerate the income potential (once again), in terms of how much you can make on an hourly basis by doing method 2. According to their website, you can EASILY make at LEAST $50 per hour of work. Now, if that were true, I would quit my full time job right now!
Although they exaggerated the truth a little, the fact remains that you can make a good amount of money with this method.
Reputation is EVERYTHING
Whether you are getting your referrals from a forum, or some other means, it's all about your reputation. Honesty and a willingness to help others go a LONG way. When people see that you know what you are talking about and that you want to help them succeed . . guess what . . . they will want to work with YOU. Read more on this topic in my article entitled How to Get Referrals at Freebie Forums.
So – Method 2 is where it's at. Method 1
is an important stepping stone to your method 2 success. Use the information you've been given to go out there and start getting your referrals. If you have questions about this method (or comments), you can post them here.
There is one more method to making money with freebies. Although I'm not a big fan of this method, I will give you the theory behind this 3rd Method.
