Make Money Online From File Sharing Programs

Aug 26, 2008
People make money online doing all sorts of things, from freelancing and selling products online, to joining affiliate programs and CPM/CPA programs. But there is another way to make thousands of dollars a month doing something you probably already do! This process is called file sharing. Maybe you've heard of sites like Kazaa, Limewire or Torrent; programs that allow communities of people to share and download content, photos, programs, music and much more.

Well, these other file sharing programs allow you to do the same things, except with these programs you can also get paid! In fact, in most cases you can actually earn a residual income, which is what we are all aiming for anyway! So, how does this work exactly? Do you get paid per view? Or is it like CPM programs where you get paid per thousand views? How do you get paid? Can you use PayPal? Usually there is some sort of a point structure put into place, so each time your file gets a unique "hit" you will be paid. These sites also usually pay with either check or PayPal. I like the ones that do it by PayPal just because its convenient for me and quick. And, these sites also have some sort of a minimum allowed before payment is allowed to be executed. For example:

10000 Points: $10 USD
50000 Points: $50 USD
100000 Points: $100 USD
500000 Points: $500 USD
1000000 Points: $1000 USD

So let's say the minimum payout is $10. So, if you receive 10,000 points which equals $10 then you can payout as soon as you get 10,000 hits, or you can wait until you accumulate more. These sites are pretty nice because getting a unique visitor to a page is pretty simple. You can use all sorts of different methods. On some of these sites I checked out, the owners and members are boasting that it's absolutely possible to make $1000 to $2000 per month. That alone is pretty terrific. And, I'm sure if you try these sites out and get JUST $10 you will be absolutely hooked because for one it's easy, for two it's quick, and for three it seems like it could be a lot of fun figuring out which "categories" are more popular than the others.

If you are looking for sites like this that allow you to get paid by sharing files you can take a look at the following sites just to get an idea of what I'm talking about:

Trap17
Ziddu
ShareaPic
ShareZone
BizHat

And of course you can also try Google to find more sites like the ones listed above. I wish you luck in finding the perfect program and remember; have fun!
