Lock.im CPA Link Locking Methods
Note: If you are not yet a member of Lock.im, Signup for a free account now.
Lock.im is a link locker & link shortener. In reality, 99.9% of people don’t just use it to shorten
links though. The real benefit of using the site/service is to earn money by locking links/urls. You
have probably seen websites around the internet that request that you fill out a particular survey
before you are shown the actual content. This is what Lock.im does for you. You simply create a
free account with the service. Then you just type in the URL that you would like to lock, and you
are provided with a shortened URL (i.e. http://Lock.im/7Mtx2).
Every time someone is directed to this URL they are asked to choose from a list of surveys to
complete, in order to see the content of your web page, download a file, etc (whatever your
locked URL is). Once they complete the very quick survey, you will receive money in your
Lock.im account (anywhere from $0.20 to $7.00 per survey).
I must say that I have yet to see any $7.00 surveys but have seen some for over $1.50 per
person that filled it out. Payments take less than 7 days to process and deposit in your PayPal
account. Pretty simple, huh?
I have used some techniques to find examples of sites that have used Lock.im to generate a
profit. These methods are being used by many individuals, including me, that are making over
$5,000/month using Lock.im. With that said, I do know of others that are generating a lot more
than this. I only spend about 20 minutes or so a day working with Lock.im, so the potential to
make a lot more is there.
First, I must start by telling you that you must be able to generate interest from the public, or
create good content in order to really make a lot of money using this service. In this document, I
will first provide many different ways to utilize Lock.im to make the most money.
Keep in mind that there are so many other ways to generate money using Lock.im, than the
ones I have gone over below. Any links that you feel people would be willing to spend a little time
to fill out a survey for, are worth a shot using a locked Lock.im link.
To get started, here are some very successful methods (I will start with the more well known
methods, and work my way up to the more unique and profitable ones):
1) The Freemium Model
Are you a writer of an ebook, or creator of other valuable digital content? Have you tried selling
this content with results you weren’t too fond of? Here is a solution. Make it FREE, and earn even
more than you would if you had charged for it. By making it free and locking it with a Lock.im
URL, you make your potential downloaders fill out a brief survey before they can download the
free content. Each time they fill out the survey, you will earn money. Lock.im has several large
content creators using their service in place of traditional payforproduct offerings.
2) The Yahoo Answers Method
This is one of the simplest and easiest of methods to utilize, and better yet it can also be one of
the highest paying ones. Here are the steps in order to monetize this method using Lock.im: Go
to http://answers.yahoo.com, click “advanced search”, then type in 'where to download' in the
'keywords section'. Click on the 'question status' and change to ‘open questions’.
There will be 100s or even 1000s of results. All you have to do is click on one of the results. Let’s
say for example, the result says “'where can I download The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo for free”.
You then go to Google and search 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo free download'. You will get a
bunch of results. Find a good download link for “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” movie, and then
copy the URL link of the download. After this, go to http://Lock.im/, login, and click “add link”.
Then click download and it will lock your link with your own unique Lock.im URL.
After doing this, and retreiving your Lock.im locked URL, post that locked link on Yahoo answers:
Note that Yahoo Answers does not allow Lock.im URLs, so you must remove the 'http://' and put
brackets around the ' . ' for example like this ( Lock(.)im/bKVHw ). Make sure you also let the
readers know, 'You may be required to complete a survey to unlock the download’.
You can just keep repeating this process for each answer (takes only a few minutes for each
answer), and you can use this same method for millions of other things, such as games,
passwords, mp3s, ebooks, etc.
You can also use Yahoo Answers to target a specific niche. For example, “Dogs”. You can
search Yahoo Answers for “Dogs”, and then subscribe to the RSS feed. This way you will be
notified whenever someone asks a question about “Dogs”. As soon as you see that question pop
up, you will be able to be the first one to answer it. Now, when you answer, you could provide a
resource, such as an ebook about dogs, or simply do the research yourself, and use
Pastebin.com (see resources at bottom of this book for more info), and post your own details
that answer the question there. Then lock you Pastebin.com url using Lock.im and provide that
as a source for your answer or even the answer itself.
You will be surprised how many of these people visit your locked URL and take the brief survey.
Not only will the poster of the question be interested, but others that were wondering the same
thing will as well.Note: You may also need to make multiple Yahoo accounts since you can only
answer 20 questions a day. The more locked link answers you do,the more likely your account
will get suspended from Yahoo answers, do don’t use an account that is important to you.
3) The YouTube Split Video Strategy
Create Youtube videos, and then only publish part of the video publicly. Make the second part of
the video “unlisted” and then lock it using a Lock.im url. In the description of part 1 of the video,
provide a link to “Part 2”. That link will be a Lock.im locked URL. Each time someone wants to
watch “Part 2” of your video, they would have to fill out a survey, thus earning you money.
4) The YouTube Hacks/Cracks/Trainer Method
Make a brief youtube video explaining that you have found a hack for something, or have a way
to do something. Then say, “Click” The link below in the description of this video to download the
Hack, Crack, Video, or whatever else it is you are offering. Then lock the download with a
Lock.im URL, and post it int he description as well. Each time someone wishes to download the
content, they will have to take a brief survey, in which you will earn money for. You may or may
not want to forewarn users that they will need to take a brief survey. (See more awesome
Youtube examples in the pages to follow)
5) The Talent Method
This method is used by those who have a talent. This will include book authors, musicians,
singers, etc. Most of these people, if they aren’t already famous, like to just get their name out
there. Many of these individuals give away their content for free. Why not make a little extra
money while doing it? Some of these talented people are now using Lock.imto give there content
away for fee, allthewhile making some money at the same time.
6) The Awesome Find Method
This is an easy method to use. You simply find files that have been uploaded to other websites
such as filestube, hotfile, etc, or upload content yourself. For example, you may find a movie that
has been uploaded somewhere, or an awesome ebook. You simply lock the download URL
using a Lock.im link locker URL, and advertise it anywhere you want, including on forums, a
website, your blog, other blogs, facebook, twitter etc. Each time someone wants to download
that file, they will be asked to complete a survey first. Each time they do, you will earn money.
7) Twitter Topic Method
This is a great method if you want to take the time. It requires that you use a twitter account to
follow people that are currently following someone else. For example, you can follow people that
are following the official “Iron Man 2” Twitter page. A good percentage of these people will then
follow you back. Once you have built up a decent amount of followers on this account, you can
then begin making money. Look for things related to “Iron Man 2”. For example, “Free Iron Man 2
Movie Download”, or “Free Iron Man 2 TShirt”. Then lock the URL to this offer using Lock.im,
and post it on your wall. Since you will have a bunch of “Iron Man 2” fans following you, you
should get a great response, simply by making a tweet such as, “Free Iron Man 2 TShirt Just
Answer a short survey and it’s yours!!”. You can use this method on virtually anything.
8) Facebook Fanpage Method
As you know, there are literally millions of Facebook Fanpages, some of which have over 1
million followers each. You can definitely use this to your advantage. Simply find a
download/product/resource that you want to lock using Lock.im. Lock it and then find a related
fan page. For example. If you have found a website that give away free Justin Bieber Sun
Glasses, lock that link using Lock.im and then search Facebook for “Justin Bieber”. You will find
multiple page with many followers. Just visit some of those pages and post something like, “I
found a cool website that is giving away free Justin Bieber sunglasses. All you have to do is
answer a brief survey... check it out at http://Lock.im/xxxxx(your locked link)”. This can be done
with virtually anything, including free movie downloads, game downloads, ebooks, or just cool
websites. Most Facebook pages allow you to post directly to a wall as well as comment under
the page’s wall posts. Commenting under the page’s wall posts that already have a lot of
comments and likes will be the most beneficial. Facebook Games Some Facebook games
allow you to type while playing them. This can be beneficial if you have a locked link related to the
game. For example you may be playing a game of Minecraft, and you could offer a free Minecraft
game addon via a locked Lock.im URL.
9) Forum Posting Method
There are many forums out there that are online to provide information on things such as:
Where to download free movies Where to stream live sporting events Where to get free stuff
Where to get coupon codesYou can use this to your advantage. Next time instead of simply
posting a URL to a resource such as a free movie download, a coupon, a breaking news story,
etc on forums, use a Lock.imlocked link in its place. Simply lock the URL using Lock.im and post
that on the forum. You will earn money for every person that takes the brief survey to unlock it.
Live Streaming Events There are many forums where you could post links to locked Live
Streaming events. All you have to do is find a relevant folder, lock your live streaming URL using
Lock.im and then post the link with a brief description (If you prefer blackhat methods, you could
even lock a link to something other than the live streaming event, as your readers will not know
that it is bogus until it is unlocked). For example. If you have found a live streaming NBA Playoff
game, you should look for forums with folders discussing the NBA or Basketball. There is one
Forum that you can pretty much post any live streaming event at, and that is CherryShares.com.
I know for a fact that there are people posting links to live streaming events such as sporting
events, press conferences, and even (nonlive) TV shows. More specifically the URL to the
folder where you can pretty much freely post these links is:
http://forum.cherrycredits.com/forum/categories/view/cashshop. However, if you browse around
the forum, you will find that people make these posts just about anywhere. Some of them have
as many as 2,000 views. Imagine how much money you would make with Lock.im if only ½ of
those people took the survey! Some of these posters don’t even post real links, they just lock
something else and claim that it is a live streaming event. Browse around the forum. Most of the
top Lock.im earners surely use this site and other forums to make a living using the service.
10) Partial Upload Method
This works great for ebooks, and some videos. The strategy is that you take an ebook (novel,
instructional book, “how to” book, etc) take out the majority of the content, while leaving only a
little bit (i.e. the first chapter). Then at the end of it, you put a link to your locked Lock.im URL
which will allow the reader/viewer to download the entire version. There are many sites which
allow for free uploads of PDF files. (slideshare.com, sharepdf.net, freepdfhosting.com,
keepandshare.com, pdfcast.org, scribd.com, planetpdf.com, searchpdfbooks.com). If you are
doing a review, Youtube is the best place to upload but there are also other free video sites. This
can also be done with MP3s, and just about any content you can imagine. Need to edit a PDF?
There are a lot of ways to do this, just search google for “Free PDF Editor”. One that I have used
in the past is: http://download.cnet.com/PDFillPDFEditor/30006675_410295757.htmlNeed to
find a good novel to do this with? Check out Amazon.com or the Barnes and Nobel’s website
(http://bn.com) They list the hottest books. There are plenty of websites that offer free book
downloads (note: this would be a blackhat method).
11) Social Networking ‘Attractive Female’ Method
Create a profile on Facebook, Orkut or Google Plus using photos of a very attractive female.
Request male and female friends from the UK, UK and Canada (especially single males). After
you have a good number of friends on your fake profile, you will have these members’ attention.
Make posts such as, “Click here to see my sexy photos”, “Click here if you would like to date
me”, “Vote for me as the sexiest female!”, “Wanna see my nude pics?”, etc. All of these links
should be locked by Lock.im. You can even say in your posts, something along the lines of, “Are
you single? Would you date me? Check out my sexy photos. After taking this brief survey!” Then
provide your locked Lock.im URL. You will be surprised how many men take the bait.
12) The Adult Photo Post Method
As you know, the adult industry is flourishing on the internet. It always has been, and always will
be. There are literally millions of people surfing the internet for adult photos and videos at any
given time. This is where you can really take advantage. There are plenty of websites online
such as http://forum.dumpstersluts.com/, http://pinporn.com and http://4chan.org that you can
browse around and find videos, movies, pictures, animated GIFs, and free porn site passwords.
You can then search google for other adult forums (Search for “Adult forum”, “Porn forum”, etc).
Visit these sites, register for an account, and then take the videos, pictures, and passwords you
have received from other sites and lock them using a Lock.im URL. If you have links to download
a video, simply lock that link with Lock.im. If you have text (passwords), you have several
options. You could create a simple webpage or blogger.com blog and put the text there, or use
services like http://pastebin.com/. Pastebin allows you to type in (or paste) text, then click on
submit. You will get a unique pastebin.com URL. Then take that url and lock it using Lock.im and
spread it around on other sites. This is a method that never gets old, and can always make you a
ton of money.Many pornography forums allow you to post locked links, and links to videos,
photos, passwords, etc. However for those that do not, all you have to do is put these links in
your signature. Each time you reply or make a new post, your signature will be on display. Make
the links attractive by saying things like “Free Pamela Anderson Nude Video Click here!”, or “My
library of over 1,000 adult passwords download now!”. Then just make normal brief posts on
these forums and your signature will get plenty of views.You can also use http://4chan.org to
post these images. Just post a single image in one of the adult sections of the site
(http://boards.4chan.org/s/, or http://boards.4chan.org/hc/), then let your readers know that they
can download the entire photo library or photo set at your locked Lock.im URL. You will be
surprised how many people click the link and take the brief survey.
13) Free Digital Comic Method
Ok, I’m not a fan of comics. Never have been, never will be. They just don’t interest me.
However, I have used this method alone to make close to $300 per week using Lock.im. The first
step is finding free online comics. You can search google, and you should get plenty of results.
However my favorite resource is http://www.lorencollins.net/freecomic/. You can download just
about anything. After downloading these, you have several options. First you want to lock the
URL to the download link, using Lock.im. Then you can either create a website (Wordpress or
Blogger blog), and a brief entry for each new comic. You could write a brief review of it, and then
provide the “Download this Comic Book Now” link (Your locked Lock.im URL). Too lazy to build
your own website? There is another method. Find comic book related forums, and post your
locked Lock.im URL there. One of the best forums (at least it’s kind of like a forum) for this is
4chan.org (more specifically the comic book section at: http://boards.4chan.org/co/). Make a
new post, and post an image of the front cover of the comic book. Then beside it, post your
download link (locked Lock.im URL). You should also post a small description of the book, so
that it garners some interest. If you can get some friends to comment on it, that will help even
14) Roms and Emulator Method
Many Lock.im users swear by this method. It is quite simple to utilize and can really earn you a
ton of money. This method however, can be a bit more time consuming, in that it works best
when you have the ability to create your own website. To start off, you will want to search for
Nintendo DS roms and emulators in Google. This can be done with any roms or emulators
(NES, Sega Genesis, PS3, Xbox, etc). Then download as many of these as you can.
http://mininova.com is a good place to find roms and emulators. You will then upload these roms
to your site, a free upload site, or simply use the download URL that you got them from. You will
then lock these URLs using Lock.im. After doing this, create a nice looking website, and provide
details for the games you are allowing people to download. The download link should be directing
to the Lock.im locked URL. Make sure to keep your site updated, by frequently adding new roms
on a daily/weekly basis. Add your site to rom and emulator directories, and post links to it places.
You can also submit your site to search engines, as well as social news sites like Digg.com,
Stumbleupon.com, reddit.com etc.Be sure to put a disclaimer on your site stating that all roms
downloaded need to be deleted within 24 hours unless the legal copy is owned. Otherwise you
could potentially get in legal trouble.
15) Your Own ‘Free Stuff’ Website
Running your own website has a lot of benefits. Firstly, your site will get indexed by search
engines (more specifically, Google). I suggest making a Wordpress.com website, so that you
can make new blog entries whenever you feel like it. These individual entries will get indexed by
Google, thus you will have perpetual traffic. For example, you may wish to start a “Free Sports
Streaming” website where you post new entries for current sporting events. You may give a brief
preview of the event and then provide a “Stream this event live” link. That link will be a locked
Lock.im url. You can also do this for free MP3s, Movies, Games, Passwords, or whatever else
you can imagine. You could mix this method with other methods. Instead of posting links to your
Lock.im locked URL on forums, social networking sites, Digg, Reddit, etc, why not create a new
blog entry and post the URL to that entry on these sites? You will get repeat visitors, people
tweeting your site, and many more benefits.
16) The Blackhat Methods
Many people have made a lot of money on Lock.im simply baiting people into filling out surveys
by offering free stuff. This ranges from books, to movies, to video games, to nude photos of
celebrities, to live streaming events, free products, free adult website passwords, and much
more. We have found that even though this stuff is offered, several Lock.im users more or less
trick people into filling out the surveys only to tell them that these things aren’t really free. We
don’t condone this method, but thought we would at least inform you of it. Depending on your
morals, you could make even more money employing black hat methods.Another Blackhat
method includes uploading videos to Youtube, such as “House Episode 3 season 4”. However,
the video that is uploaded is not really an episode of “House” but rather a brief video saying
“Youtube disallowed this video, so please visit the link you see below”. Then the Youtube user
uses a Lock.im locked URL to go to the full version of the video. Whether or not they really link to
the full video or not is up to them.
17) Your Own Unique Method
There are an infinite amount of ways you can earn a living using Lock.im to lock your links. The
best ways you use will be totally unique ideas that no one has even tried before. Experiment! You
will be surprised how much money you can earn from simple little ideas that take only minutes to
put in place.
Here are some highly recommended resources that will help you make even more money
http://animoto.com This is a great site for editing videos. It’s free to use, and you can add
actual text links on your videos. You can then download these and upload them directly to
Youtube. This is a great way to get people to click on your Lock.im URLs, rather than just
posting them in the description of the video.
http://www.tvlinks.eu/tvshows/ You can pretty much find any TV show on this site. Lock the
link and share!
http://pastebin.com/ Have text that you want to lock and then share? This site allows you to
type in any text, save it and then get your unique Pastbin.com URL. Lock this URL link using
Lock.im and then advertise it!
http://www.primopdf.com Free PDF editors/creators.
http://vagex.com/ This is a method of getting hits to your Youtube videos. Although most of
these hits won’t help you make money directly, as they probably won’t click on your Lock.im
links, it will increase your “Views” total, which means a higher ranking in the Youtube search,
hence a higher Google ranking as well. http://www.screencastomatic.com/ This is a great
way to create a video of your screen. For example, you could use Powerpoint, to create a
slideshow and make a video of that slideshow to put on Youtube.
http://www.jamendo.com/en This is a site that allows you to add royalty free music to your
http://www.tubemogul.com/ This site allows you to submit your videos to multiple videos sites
https://ads.youtube.com/keyword_tool This tools allows you to see what people are searching
for on Youtube. This can help you pick your title of your own Youtube videos.
http://downloadyoutubevideo.org/ or http://keepvid.com These are sites that allow you to
download Youtube videos to your computer. This can be very useful in many ways.
http://rankings.bigboards.com/?p=all These are huge lists of large forums online. They are
great for posting anything from your referral link in your signature, to links to locked Lock.im
URLs, etc. Make sure you pick the right folders to post in.
http://bit.ly This is a common link shortener. Sure you don’t need to use it but it can help you in
some cases. Many people don’t click on Lock.im URLs because they know that it will ask them
to take a survey. In these cases, you can hide the Lock.im URL by using bit.ly to cover it up.
Instead your url will be something like bit.ly/3dksl/ rather than your normal Lock.im shorted URL.
It will still do the same thing, but people won’t realize it is Lock.im until after it is clicked.
Thank you for reading.
