In this age of economic crisis, when everyone is looking for ways to earn money, you would probably be right in assuming that this is just one more fraud. How can something, costing hundreds of dollars, be given away free, and who in their right minds would be doing it?
Well, you are not to blame, and anyone who learns of a free iPad 3, for the first time, does smirk in disbelief. Several people, in fact, want proof that such an expensive product is really given off without any obligations to the recipient. The proof is available with the BBC, CNN and other news channels -
Once we explain the logic behind such offers, you will begin to feel there may be some truth in it after all. You see, marketing needs advertisements to bring the product in front of the customers. However, advertising is an expensive activity. For example, the prime-time TV advertisement slots sell for millions of dollars.
The alternative is called ‘affiliate marketing’. Marketers make people advertise their products. These people are then called affiliates and are paid for their efforts. The fact is this method is far cheaper than advertising on TV. Even though the audience coverage is not comparable to what TV is capable of, affiliate marketing converts more potential customers and gives better returns.
Therefore, how and whose ‘affiliate’ do you have to become, to earn your free iPad? Well, there are people like LOVEFiLM, who you may have seen on TV. You can sign up for a 14-day free trial, without obligations, with such people.
Now all you need to do is complete an offer from the advertisers. There are free offers as well, so ultimately you will not have to spend a cent. Once the offer is completed, get a few of your friends to do the same. After your friends have completed their orders, you are sent the free iPad as your commission as an affiliate of LOVEFiLM.
