The other day, I was confronted by a referral on the Anything4Free trading forums. He was worried that, if he put in all of the effort now, freebie trading wouldn’t be worth it in the long run in terms of the time spent. He wanted my advice on the matter.
I started a trade with you some time ago. Sorry it’s taken so long. Been a lot of stuff going on. I did have some questions for you, since I’m pretty much new to this whole freebie thing, with only a couple trades under my belt.
Basically, I’m just worried that eventually this whole thing will be a waste of my time and too much work for the little profit I get back from it. The trial offers are pretty much static – they don’t change much – and I have already been having problems finding offers I’m genuinely interested in. My question is, won’t all the offer possibilities dry up with method 1? I don’t find too many that are worth doing… like, they cost too much to where the profit made off of them is hardly worth it. Do you just have to eek by to get your trade rating to four and then start doing method 2? Is that really the way to make money with this?
I enjoy the strategy of it, and making $ of course. I’m just worried I’m going to be disappointed in the long run.
Thanks for your time,

Before I talk about missing credit requests, I think we should refresh our memory and touch briefly on freebie trading terminology for any confused readers out there. In my Beginner’s Guide to Anything4Free: Method 1 post, I briefly discussed the term IFW. IFW stands for Incentivized Freebie Website or simply websites for which you complete a certain number of offers in order to earn a reward, often cash but sometimes items as well. If you’re trading in Method 1, you would complete offers on IFWs and get paid by the trader your completing the offers for. For method 2, you recruit other traders to IFWs so that you can receive a gift from the IFW after your referrals get credited for all required offers.
Now that I’ve re-informed you exactly what IFWs are, let’s talk about missing credit requests. When you complete an offer on an IFW, you must wait a bit for credit. Often times, the offer gets credited within a few hours after completion. Sometimes the offer won’t get credited until 24 hours have passed. “Instant” offers, for example, shouldn’t take longer than 24 hours to receive credit. Other offers that aren’t “instant” can take days to credit. So, if there’s so much variation, how do you know when to submit a missing credit request?
Because freebie trading has very good money making potential, many people want to give it a try, but they’re unsure with how to start. As I mentioned in my Project Payday Review, there are three ways to make money from trading. In this guide I focus on getting started with the forums Anything4Free. Continue reading
