10 Ways To Get Referrals For GPT Sites – Part 1

Many “Getting Paid To” sites have referral programs where you can refer other people to their site. If the referral signs up, you earn additional money on top of your current profits you are making on the site itself.

For example, you may be able to earn 20% of whatever your referrals earn on the GPT site. Following this example, If you were to refer 100 people to the GPT site and each of them earned $20 per month, you are looking at an extra $400 in earnings.  Not bad.

If you are already using GPT sites to make cash, referral programs are a great way to increase your overall earnings. If you take advantage of these referral programs and refer lots of people to the GPT sites that you participate on, you could eventually make money without much effort.

In other words, you can sit back and let your referrals make you money. However, you still need to make an effort to help your referrals along the way and answer any questions they may have. So, it’s not like getting thousands of referrals and bam – you are making a few extra thousands a month without doing anything.

If you want active referrals who will make you some extra money in referral commissions, you need to encourage them to be active and offer to help them get started.  Teach them the tricks you use and the trip-ups you have had on GPT sites and it will be rewarded.

If you go about it the right way, you can really make a mint using GPT referral programs.  After time, it is possible to make fairly easy residual money by working hard for referrals up front.

So, how do you even get referrals? In part 1 of this 2 part series, you will learn 5 different ways to get referrals online. Part 2 will reveal 5 different offline methods that you can use to get referrals.

Let’s get started.

Getting Referrals Online

1. Banner Advertising

Many GPT sites provide members with promotional banners that they can use to recruit referrals. You can take these banners and advertise them over the Internet.

There are several ways that you can go about it. If you are a member of some forums that allow users to put banners in their signature, you could try adding your promotional banner to your signature and participate on the forum to get your banner exposed to potential referrals. This method works best when you are participating on forums related to making money.

You could also find some websites that offer banner advertising and pay to have your banner placed on websites that may help you gain some new referrals. You need to have some basic knowledge of media buying before trying out this method or else you could lose money or get ripped off.

2. Videos

There are many videos about GPT sites sitting on YouTube right now getting lots of views. The ones who are getting all those views and have their referral link in the description should be getting a nice amount of referrals.

You can take a similar approach. Create some videos about the GPT sites that you are a member of and post them on popular video sharing sites such as YouTube. You can show off payment proofs, create tutorials on how to use the site, or just give basic tips on how to make money with GPT sites.

If you can properly optimize your videos with keywords, create engaging videos, stay consistent, and promote your videos, you could start getting a steady flow of referrals coming from your videos.

3. Forums

One way that people learn about making money online is by frequenting discussion forums that focus on the topic of making money on the Internet. There are a number of these types of forums online.

Find a few of these forums that allow you to have a link your signature, join, and participate – keeping mind of the forum rules. Try not to drop your referral links in your signature right off the bat. Contribute to the discussions for a week or two and then add your referral links in your signature.

Don’t just add a raw referral link to your signature. Be creative and add some text that will lure browsers to check out your link.

And don’t forget to check out the actual forums of the GPT sites themselves. Many members are able to get new referrals just by regularly posting on the forum of the GPT site.

4. Social Media

Everyone is using some form of social media these days whether it is Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or even Tumblr. If you already have some friends, fans, or followers on some of your social media profiles, tell them about how you are making extra cash from home for free.

Share some of your proof of payments, post some videos you have made, or just bring it up in a casual interaction. If they want more information, send them your referral link, or even better, a webpage that explains how it works and gives visitors access to your referral link.

This method is better because some GPT sites prohibit members from posting referral links on social media sites. However, there is nothing wrong with sharing a link to your own website which has your referral links listed on there.

5. Email

There is a nice little feature that most people don’t use when it comes to emails. Signatures!  Every time you send an email, you can include a custom signature. Your signature can include just about anything you want, and GPT referral links are perfect.

You can add a little snippet about how you make free cash and include your referral link. Here’s an example. Cashcrate helps fill my tank for free! Click Here if you want to learn more :)”.

Earn Money Selling PLR Content

Private Label Rights (PLR) content has been a popular resource for quite some time. For marketers, it is an ideal way to gain access to content that is cheap and that they can repackage, edit, rebrand, and even claim as their own.

As a writer, the idea behind selling PLR content is simple: Bulk sales.

Let’s just say you have 10 articles of about 500 words each. If you were to sell them normally, you might get anything from $50 to $100 for the entire lot, but if you were to sell them as a PLR content package for as little as $20 – you could make a lot more.

At $20 per lot, if you sell 10 lots you’ve already made $200. And if you sell 100 lots, that’s $2,000 right there!

Of course, if you’re interested in actually making money selling PLR content, there are three main bases that you need to cover if you intend to be successful at it: Continue reading
