If you were planning on using a script from FSRevolution then don't bother theres like 1,000 freebie sites with that, Anyways from some of the site owners I have talked to it takes a good while till you actually start making profit, & If your relying on the forums from a4f here and referralswapper for everyone I wouldn't bother either..From the ranges I have heard its about 2-4k investment to get everything up and running "not including your first payout ext..." IMO the way you get stuff completed as fast as you do the "user" end would be so much more profitable "less work" also. Just my 2 cents
I would make sure you have a big capital to start off with. Like $5,000. I think it would make your site get off to a better start. Also, the more you are on for support, the better. Remember that you are competing with tons of new sites out there... everyone decided to make their own. Make sure you are committed, only the best will last.
the more you are on support, the more whiny IMs you will get from people wondering why their instant offer hasn't credited yet and why you haven't answered the support ticket they sent 5 minutes ago.
as myjobisthis mentioned - if you rely on the people who hang out on the freebie boards, you're going to limit yourself. you'd need to find a niche or large group of people (a group with a combined non-freebie interest) and get them to register and sign up for trial offers.
in my opinion it's just not worth it.
I got more than enough to invest on it and got a good team for support and to design the site, and my ideas will defenetly lead to a great freebie site just gotta do more research so more help would be appreciated 8)

Work on your spelling before you start responding to support tickets ;)

i'm sure that's sarcastic comment and a shot at the poster, since you already attacked his basic freebie-site questions...
...but why should he worry about spelling?
freepay is still sending responses with spelling errors and butchered sentences.
account holders will be more happy with a real response with a mistake or two than a canned one with no mistakes (or no response at all).
so many freebie sites
my suggestion? Find a new idea. Or at least a new extrapolation for the basic concept.
When I worked for RewardzNetwork we made about $200 profit the first month, $1,000 the second, $2,000 the 3rd, and then about $1,000 each month steadily, but we couldn't get the exact profit because some people completed offers that we got paid for way back when they opened up, but are cashing out now, but it's somewhere around there, I was just talking about it with the owner the other day.
Takes a huge amount of effort, or expensive support, which costs $100's a month.
Many freebiests make more than most of the site owners except large companies like trainn, oc, etc. You have much less hassle just doing freebies and not worrying about trying to run your own site and you will make more than almost any owner out there.

Thanks for the info, yea i gotten a lot of feedback that i would just keep making more if i kept doing freebies, I'm just curious what the profits would be in owning a successful freebie site, since myself i made big profits just doing freebies and thought opening a freebie site would be the next level.
gmario, go for it!! But my suggestion is don't be the normal FSR site. Their popping up everyday and people like craftycash are complaining no one is doing their site. The interest just isn't there for very new networks unless you are unique as in you pay right away not the 15th of every month but then you take the risk of leads being reserved and you lose money. It would help to get a respected person on the forums to have on your support team, a newbie won't do. And so many people are complaining about instant credit offers it becomes a hassle...I would make a site that has no instant offers that way people can't bitch the second they do an offer and it doesn't credit or the owner isn't at their computer to credit their offer in 5 seconds.
You will have to be able to accept criticism at it's highest. I remember reward bull first came out people gave that guy the most shit I've seen but his site was unique and neat. Turns out the site started to become a success but now is not..
Plus the profits won't be great until you get a big user database with constant offer completions. First month will be rough but people like jkirk had a nice turn out in the start I believe just because he's respected around the forums so i bet he's doing well ) You could be making thousands of dollars profit or little...it depends how successful you are.
If you are serious about starting a site make sure that your payout ratio is above $40 and have a unique site. You can fsr if you wish but make sure the layout is nothing like the others. There are many new site using the FSR that are successful despite all the doubt, so you do have a chance to make it.
40/ref means nothing when everything is partial credit though

Also don't do 35 a credit because you [b6666434910]cannot[/b6666434910] compete with 123stuff4free sites at all.
Full credits should pay you a little over 40, half credits should pay you somewhere between 20 and 30, don't put hosting offers on your site since they're a huge risk of not paying and revoking every little thing....
With a nice ass script, 5k capital and a 40 and over a referral you should do okay....
Also, approve in days like Trainn, you should have a bit more safety of actually getting paid that way.
Thx for the great help, and yes i did notice that site paying lower seem to be failing since us users tend to go for sites that pay $40 or above so i know all about that.
