Method 1: Getting Paid to Complete Offers

September 15, 2008

Lets talk about the first method that you can use to make money with Freebie Trading. In order to be a Freebie Trader, you are going to need to have Freebie sites that you can refer people to. In order to get those sites, you need to go green for others at those sites.

To go green is to register at a Freebie site (using someone's referral link) and complete the offer requirements. On some sites, this means completing one credit worth of offers. On others more, and on others less. What's great about doing this is that YOU GET PAID to do it.

By going green on 1 site, you can get paid anywhere from $10 – $60, with the average being around $25 per green. Now lets say you spent $3 for your green. That's not a bad deal.

Did you know that there are TENS OF THOUSANDS of people out there that are willing to PAY YOU to go green at their Freebie Sites?

Now, there are a few things to keep in mind when going green:

Choose your sites wisely
The sites that you choose are the sites that you will by using when you move on to method 2. If you buy a really crappy house and then move into it, you will have a lot of problems in the future. The same thing goes for going green. Many people jump into freebie trading, not knowing what they are doing, end up greening on a few sites, making some money, but then are in a bad place when they try to move on. Read more about the sites by reading my article entitled “How to Choose Freebie Sites“.

Start Small
As I mentioned above, you can get paid anywhere between $10 and $60 for going green at 1 site. However, the sites that you would get paid $60 for requires you to complete many more offers and are much harder to get referrals for when you move on to method 2. My recommendation would be to start with sites that you get paid $20 – $30 for your green, and I never recommend sites that pay more than $40. Read more about this in my article “Start small, start Smart

Instant unfortunately doesn't always mean INSTANT
I'm not going to lie to you. With every business that you find online, there will be some negatives. This is one of those negatives with Freebie Trading. When you check out offers to complete in order to go green on a particular site, there is a crediting time listed. In many cases, it says instant. That “instant” means that the particular offer usually credits instantly. However, that is when everything goes according to plan, which isn't always the case. However, the freebie sites want you to get credited, because if you don't get credited, they don't get paid.

Method 1 doesn't last forever
There is one thing that you should know about project payday. It is a little misleading in terms of how much you are able to make using method 1. What you will notice when you start going green on sites is that many of the sites have similar offers. However, you are ONLY allowed to complete an offer ONCE. Because of this, it is difficult to go green on more than 10 – 15 sites. By the time a person has done 4 to 6 sites, they start feeling that it is getting much harder to continue with method 1 fully. As a Freebie Trader, for long term success, you will need to move to method 2. Read more about this in my article “The Freebie Equation

All of that being said, let me emphasize the following. Although your goal is to move on to method 2, that in no way diminished the IMPORTANCE of Method 1. It is in method 1 that you lay the foundation for method 2. The skills you learn while doing method 1 are the skills that you will need to teach your referral. Try to learn as much as possible at each step of the way.

If you have any questions (or comments) about this method, you may post them here. If not, lets dive right into Method 2
