I just learned about this forum yesterday so I have a LOT to learn about how things work in this new (to me) world.

I'm here because I want to repeat the success I just had with my first freebie site. I don't know if I'm allowed to mention the site so I won't risk screwing up my very first post here. The important thing is that I deposited a check for $1360. Needless to say, I want to repeat the process - this time in a more efficient and timely manner. No referrals were required for the offer I did, so I'm starting from scratch in working with trades and paid referrals.

If anyone reading this is inclined to offer newbie advice, I appreciate it very much. I read most of the newbie indoctrination posts so I'm itching to start learning the ropes here.

I've done a cursory search of the various freebie sites and have found a couple that offer cash prizes (my preference), but I'm interested in anyone's experience (good or bad) with specific sites.

My other question is - is there a standard $ amount to offer someone for going green, or is it largely dependent on the value of the prize? Thanks!

Hey man. $1360 is awesome for your first freebie payout. DIY sites are great. Looks like you're looking to make a switch over to Referral type sites. These are great as well.

The first step that you will need to take is to get your TR up a little bit, as this is a very important factor later on when attempting to find refs.

In the beginning, it's best to pick sites you want to do and then find the person paying the best for greens on each one. I suggest trading with a member with a TR of at least 50 for your first few trades, and make sure to set up all trades in the Trades Manager.

The standard amount of $ to offer for going green is 50% of the payout. So, if a site pays $40 per ref, then paying $20 is standard.

Let me know if you have any other questions at all. I'm online most of the day M-F. D

Thanks very much for the thoughtful and fast reply. I've moderated a Yahoo group for almost 4 years, so I have a lot of appreciation for when forum members do more than just shadow!

Something you said made me realize that I had a question but didn't know it yet - Is there anywhere I can go to browse a list of DIY sites as opposed to referral sites? Is anyone categorizing them like that?

Thanks again for welcoming the newbie.

Head towards the bottom of the forums main page.

There is a whole sub-section for DIY.

Best of luck

it was and the promotion was for a Nikon D200. Since they sent cash, I assume they didn't have the camera any longer? No complaints though - I was going to sell it anyway.
