This post is part of the “This Is Quick” case study:
More to come!
Before I begin this article, here’s something to look at:
Winzip, limewire, pdf reader, video converters and all other softwares all of them are free, but ever wonder why the dudes who made it gave it all away in exchange of nothing?!
No, their not dumb, actually they’re the smart guys. Just think about it again. If you downloaded adobe’s pdf reader will you be able to edit the pdf files? No. how? You buy the whole product.
The scheme is quite simple to understand. You give something away in EXCHANGE of what you need.
About That Picture
When I checked my stats in Text Link Ads this morning, that commission made me laugh, simply because I see how the “Give It Away and Get Rich” scheme works. I mean, if you look at the referral link, you’ll see that it came from the link of my free report (if you want to get it, use the form in the header. Obviously) and all I did was plug a little affiliate link there and poof.
$25 is chicken feed, I know. But think positive, there were only 500+ people who have signed-up in the newsletter and that’s just in 3 weeks of time, what more for next month?! When the report goes viral because of the master resell rights?
What Actually Do You Need In Exchange
If you have something that you want to give and you think people would love to get, what will you get from them in order to pull some cash giving away stuff?
- Personal information – Of course, name, address, telephone number, etc.
- E-mail address – The goldmine in the online world, see the first part for more explanation
- What they need – If you think you didn’t have that much success on your first giveaway, you may want to ask some of those who got the product for some suggestions and so on.
Building a Brand Through Giveaways
Not all people who give free stuff want money, some just want fame, popularity or most importantly branding. A great example of this is Mozilla. Mozilla has become an authority in giving away free stuff and trying to make them better and battling their way to fame against Microsoft, add to the fact that they are battling against the big daddy, they’re getting some star dust on their way through.
And oh, don’t forget lovely WordPress!

Ok, now to get things done. If you haven’t downloaded my report yet, I’m giving it away for FREE . Just fill up the form above with your name and email address (what I need) and I’ll send you the link instantly.
Oh yea, I almost forgot. You can make money with it, sell it, offer it as a giveaway or just share it with your friend (branding part) but take note, your limits are not to edit it (where I make money)
