Ok, I know that you might be skeptical about this entire industry. However, I can assure you that by the time you have read this 3 Part Series, you will no longer be skeptical.
Proof Part 1: Where the money comes from
Lets look specifically at how these companies are able to afford these “free products” that they are sending you. The freebie sites have established relationships with a number of legitimate online companies that pay them to refer individuals to try out their services. Lets look at 2 specific companies: Blockbuster online and Credit Check Total.
You might not know this, but these 2 companies (among many others) will pay you if you get someone to try out their services. Want proof? Visit the following links:
Now lets do the math. Blockbuster will pay you $33 per referral, and CreditCheck Total will pay you $24 per referral. That means if you get someone to try out those 2 offers, you will be paid $57.
This is exactly what the freebie sites do. Lets say you want to get a Free Ipod Touch. The going rate for an 8Gb Ipod Touch is $299. For proof Click here.
Lets say you sign up at a freebie site and complete those 2 offers. Not only that, you get 6 friends to sign up at these freebie sites and they complete offers that pay the freebie sites similar amounts. That Freebie site has just made 7 * $57, which gives them a total of $399.
Do you see why they do not mind buying you an Ipod touch? Yes, they spent $299, but they made $100 for getting you that Ipod touch. It’s a WIN-WIN Situation.
Now, if you think THAT sounds good, let me let you in on a little secret. When companies are able to refer a lot of people to these programs, they do not get paid the same standard rates that everyone else gets. They are able to negotiate higher payouts with these sites to make even MORE money. If that isn’t win-win, I don’t know what is!
