The minute I joined sitepoint I was impressed by their sales market , but then I saw their actual forum .
So first the fastest way of making big money will be sitepoint forum – the contest section. The actual website is 99designs (a part from sitepoint). There is a section for : designing contests , marketing , feedback and development. When someone starts a thread saying “I need a logo – 500$” – you post reply your sample and it is set up for the contest . The thread starter decides the best of them and sends a reply to owners ( could be 2 or more winners ). The contests usually end in a week and the money put up for winning places is over 300$ – so that means you can design something , put it up for the contest and win 500$ in a week, rather than putting up for bid on a lame forum.
Get a “pay per registration” registration affiliate , join and use adwords or yahoo.market ( which I wrote about in previous posts ) . I suggests the ones that pay over 80$ , because the risk you take when searchers click your link and don’t sign up is big. The turn point of this is search and buy vouchers on forums for yahoo , facebook , or adwords . Otherwise it won’t actually be a good win / loss ratio. (search on DP – buy sell trade)
