I see this allllll the time on Instagram now, these snake oil salesmen running some sort of scam. Let me know what you think about this kind of thing, I could be off the mark and they might actually be amazing. But to me, it looks like complete BS. Here is an example: instagram(dot)com/milllsy?utm_source=ig_profile_share&igshid=13jhe1gtnfcfe
This started out as a jokey guide I wrote when bored, but it actually pisses me off how much I see this. Step One: Pick a Niche and Set Up An Insta
Pick a niche first. Some examples are forex trading, dropshipping and binary options. Then create an Instagram account. Something like @dave_does_fx will do.
Be sure to include cool emojis in the bio such as dollar bills or the globe to show you have money and travel the world! Step Two: Create That Lifestyle
You need to create an image of yourself that will attract people who want to make money fast and never actually do any work in their lives.
To do this: Step 2.1 - Rent stuff.
First off, you need a car. A Lamborghini is an optimum choice, with a GTR and an R8 a close 2nd. Costs around $800 for the day, probably even less if you are a good boy on the road.
Next, you need a crib. Airbnb will do the trick. https://www.airbnb.co.uk/rooms/15740766?location=Los%20Angeles%2C%20CA&adults=2&children=0&infants=0&check_in=2018-11-13&check_out=2018-11-14&s=SdtPtVkq
- This one will do, £400 per night. Step 2.2 - Optional Step
This isn't a must but definitely helps make you more money from home. Buy some fake money. Get a big fat stack of it, the best picture is to hold it in front of your Lamborghini steering wheel with the caption "withdrawing this week's profit".
Again this is an optional step, but a good one. Rent some hot models. These babies cost about $20 per hour and really add that I'm the Wolf of Wall Street
vibe to your page. Fill your car and your fancy apartment with them, I think you can get 2 or 3 in a Lambo. Step 3 - Photography
This is my personal favorite step. You need to take as many pictures as possible, enough for a couple months of daily posts. Pose by the car, get different girls to pose by the car. Chill by the pool with a cocktail (post the caption "I Love Monday Mornings" for bonus points). Take pics of your fresh crib. Do whatever you need to do in order to look rich for the day, make people believe you are living the lifestyle, even though you aren't... yet. Step 4 - The Offer
Now you have the content, you need the offer. I'll stick with the forex trading example for this as well because I like consistency.
There are a few offers you can choose from. The first and most popular is creating a course. You need about 1-2 hours worth of content for this, and you just have to act like you know what you are on about and post some cough fake cough
results to show you are 100% legit and 100% real. Watch a few youtube videos and just put that into a powerpoint, you might actually have to do some work here, it could take a few hours even; but once done you can sell it for $199.99 (reduced from $499.99) and they won't even realise it was stuff they can find online for free.
Another offer is a sign-up bonus. You partner with a broker and offer your client an incentive for using your link (like they can copy your trades or something like that). The broker will either pay you a lump sum for every referral, or sometimes even pay commissions for every loss your client makes. When the client asks why they keep losing, you just ensure that you have to lose before you win, or something like that.
I have also seen methods like hiring a trader to recommend you trades and then passing these on to the client and taking 25% (or however much you want to ask for) of their profits. Of course, you aren't putting on the trades yourself so it doesn't matter if they lose. Great leverage! Step Five
This is probably the hardest step. You will actually have to get some clients results in the first few days. Why? So you can post them on your insta account and showoff your happy clients of course. Usually, the numbers I see are around £50 profit in a week (definitely enough to pay for your lavish lifestyle!). Never post the losers, and be sure to delete negative comments as soon as possible. Step Six - ADVERTISE
Use FB ads to promote your instagram account. Use pics of your fancy crib and car with CTA's like "Make Money Online Fast Today" - target people with interests in entrepreneurship, or better yet, hire someone on Fiverr to do it for you! People will start following you because you seem to have such a rich lifestyle and they want to emulate that. You convince them it is easy if you follow their advice and voila, make that money.
