I have been a freebie site trader for a little over a year. I really enjoy the opportunity to make some extra cash from home. As I have stated in other post, you won’t get rich from freebie trading. However, you can make substantial money. I do most of my trading on the Free Lunchroom forum. My screen name is Vancollins. On that forum, I learned a lot about the business and have made some wonderful friends. It is no one strategy that is right for everyone. However, I can share some of the strategies that I have learned over the last year.
Let start out with the facts. It is very unlikely that you will make $500 in one day doing freebie trading. However, it is easy to make at least $500 in your first 7 to 10 days doing freebie sites. However, you need a strategy.
There are many different strategies you can use. One is not superior to another. I have outlined just 1 way to do it. There are many. You need to do what is comfortable to you. Also, you can change or alter your plan at anytime. Just make sure you following a plan.
The following strategy is for someone that is looking at moving to method 2 rather quickly. The basis of this strategy is as follows:
- You need experience in completing sites.
- You need to built up your Trader Rating (TR).
- You need to get verified on Free Lunch Room.
- You need to do green 4 green trading BEFORE moving exclusively to paying referrals
- You need to built up cash in your paypal account
Complete 6 sites where you are paid for your green.
Look for sites that only require 1 referral for cash out. This will come in handy when you move to green 4 green trades. These should be easy, 1 credit sites that require no more than 2 to 3 offers to complete. Although there are many great sites out there, I recommend Zip Nada Zilch sites because they have guaranteed credit. You can use this for a max of 2 offers.
Do the sites 1 at a time. If you have problems with credits from one site, consider looking at a different network. There are many great sites out there. You can do these with the same trader or with different traders.
Once you have completed this, you should have $150 in your paypal account.
Next, do a TraInn site for cash.
Look for one of the TraInn sites that require 6 or less referrals for cash out. You will have no problems finding someone to pay you $25 for a green on TraInn. Many times, traders are looking for refs on TraInn sites but they do not advertise it. Check with one of the traders that you did the first 6 sites for.
Once you completed this step, you should have $175 in your paypal account.
At this point you have a TR of 7 and you should be looking at green 4 green trades. The first thing you want to do is get verified on FLR. This cost $50, however, it is an essential investment on your part if you want to do this long term.
Once you have completed this step, you should have $125 in you paypal account.
You do not have to wait until you are verified to begin green for green trading. At this point you want to develop your trade thread in the Referral 4 Referral section of Free Lunch Room. List the six sites that you have and state that you are interested in green 4 green trades. Look for easy 1 credit sites such as Cash4allmankind, Giftmonster, Prizeoasis or others. Remember, the person with the lowest TR goes first. You will find that many people looking to g4g have a lower TR than 7 so you should be able to do several of these with the other trader going first. Try to do four green 4 green trades. Also, since you have used sites that require only 1 referral for cash out, you will be able to cash out as soon as the other trader greens. You do not have to wait. Each cashout is worth $40.
You may think that it is hard to green on sites by this time because you have done all of the cheap offers. But realize that if you were paying for refs at this point, you would pay someone $20-$25 to green for you. You may not be able to do $2 offers at this point but you can spend up to $20-$25 on a site and still come out ahead. Most offers do not cost this much.
Once you have completed this step, you should have $285 in you paypal account and a TR of 11.
Now you are ready to complete your first TraInn site. Although TraInn sites are non repeatable, most pay $50 per referral and only require 1 offer to green. Do green 4 green trades to complete your TraInn site. Only do other TraInn sites. TraInn sites only require 1 offer to green so you should be able to do it. If you have a site that requires 6 referrals for cash out, the payout is $300.
Once you have completed this step, you should have $585 in you paypal account and a TR of 17.
Before you do anything else, PAY OFF THE OFFER CHARGES ON YOUR CREDIT CARD. You have probably spend about $100-$125 on offers at this point. Pay it off.
At this point, you are ready to pay for referrals. You have gained experience in completing sites, built up your TR, gotten verified on FLR, done green 4 green trading BEFORE moving exclusively to paying referrals and built up cash in your paypal account. Happy Trading
