IFW's: What are they and how do they work.

The biggest question out there is "How do I get something for free?". All incentive freebie sites work basically the same way:

1. You create an account at the Freebie site (for free).
2. You try an advertiser's offer (these are usually free trials).
3. You get a certain number of referrals (people who sign up under you) who also try an advertiser's offer. The number of referrals is usually from one to ten.
4. You get your freebie in the mail.

Does it work? Is it a scam? It does work and no it is not a scam. The freebie sites make an enormous amount of money doing this and are more than willing to give you your freebie.

Freebie companies get PAID by advertisers to get new customers to try their offers. Everyone that signs up on a freebie site must complete an offer. The companies that provide these offers will pay the freebie site for referring new customers. On average, the advertising offer pays $35 to $50 for a new signup. It is very expensive for companies to advertise; so if the company gets a new customer out of it, it is well worth the expense.

By now, most are saying "Thats great but how do I get referrals?". Trading forums have popped up that do nothing but trade referrals either for cash or referral for referral. There are several of them and these sites are growing all the time. You can make immediate money by doing offers for someone else; anywhere from $25 to $100 in one day. There is no up front cash requirement or cost. Let me repeat that, THERE IS NO COST TO START.

There are several ways to get started, you can go straight to a trading forum and jump in. Or, you can go to the premier training program, Project Payday. The only cost is to complete one trial offer to receive this valuable training. The freebie sites support this training program so that new users understand what is involved and how to go about completing offers and getting referrals. This site has very in depth lessons on everything from signing up on a trading forum to cashing out on a freebie site. There are also videos that explain everything in detail and walk you through the whole process.

What is a Green?

It is important to understand the term "Green"; what it is and what it means. Almost everyonin the incentive freebie world uses this term.

Once a person or referral completes a sponsor offer, that is a "Green".

This is called a green because all IFWs color code a users status. When someone first signs up and has not completed an offer, they are color coded yellow. Once a user completes an offer and gets credit for doing so, their status changes to green. In addition, if a user breaks a IFWs term of service, their status changes to red.

The term "green" is used alot in relation to IFWs. You might hear "he went green for me". They are talking about a person that they referred to a IFW who completed their offer and got credit. Or in the trading forums, you will see "paying on green"; which means they are offering to pay people to signup on their referral link and complete an offer.
