Method 2: Getting paid Directly from the Freebie Site

September 15, 2008

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.

    Hi Leslie. I haven’t greened on 20 sites, but pretty close. I’ve personally greened 18 sites and am currently working on a 19th.

    I know a lot of traders just green a few and then get a lot of free greens, and I’ve gotten my share of free greens, too. But, my goal is to be as successful as you and some other veteran traders are, so my iTR is very important to me and I’m making the best effort I can to raise it.

    I am currently transitioning to Method 2, and actually just had my first ref green for me a few days ago! Yay Me, and Project Payday! I signed up to be a Project Payday Mentor and the guy who just greened for me is someone placed in my mentoring line from PPD. Not only has he greened for me once but is lined up to do 2 more sites with me, as well.

    Also, I just received a PM to pay for my first sticky ever on FLR & can’t wait to see how much that propels me forward in this venture!

    Thanks for this website. It has excellent advice and tips all around. A lot of it I had already learned from being around FLR and posting, and reading, and posting, and reading, and posting some more. LOL — you get the idea. But someone newly starting at FLR will find all the posts here INVALUABLE!!!!

  • Hi Wendy, greening on 19 sites (in my opinion) is quite an accomplishment. I’ve personally greened on 10. It sounds like you are on the right track, I wish you all the best.

    Earl, not knowing how to get referrals is not a bad thing. We’ve all been there. It can be a challenge to get started, but once you get started in the correct way, you should be fine.

    The key is making sure you are setting yourself up for success. Follow the tips I have here and you should be fine. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to post them on this blog and I will answer them to the best of my ability.

    Happy Greening!

      So Method 1 is how you get your referrals.
      When I move onto method 2, Besides the sites I went green on, on method 1 . When I sign up with other sites to add to my trades. Do I have to do an offer and go green on the site to get the referral link? Or can I just register on the site then refer someone else to the site to do the offer?

    • Leslie says:

      You get the referral link as soon as you register. However, if you don’t complete offers, you can’t cash out. You want to start off with method 1 and then move to method 2. Once you’ve gone green, that’s when you want to start referring people. If you do it before greening, you run the risk of not being able to go green and never getting paid.
