How To Make $500 By Spending $50-$100 This Week With Robinhoods Referral Program

Hey Fastlane Forum,

Just to be clear there are no affiliate links in this post, I make a sum total of $0 by sharing this info. I'm just doing it to give some value. If I need to make any changes to the thread to keep it compliant with the rules definitely let me know. This has nothing to do with day trading or investing. This is about using the referral program that Robinhood is promoting, its basically affiliate marketing.

This is a two step process.
1) Creating a robinhood account (if you already have one go to step #2)
2) Creating a Propeller Ads advertiser account and running ads

So, lets just jump right into it. Robinhood has a referral program where you get a random stock worth $5 give or take for every person you refer to the app, signs up, and gets approved for an account. We use pop up ads to generate the traffic to get these referrals. The cap robinhood has is $500. So once you get $500 in referrals you can't get any more. Propeller ads minimum deposit is $100. In the cases with my friends and I we've only had to spend $50 on ads to cap out at the $500 in referrals. After you get $500, Robinhood makes you keep the money in your account for 30 days before you can withdrawal to your bank account.

If you already have a Robinhood account, great. If not, create one. You can download it on the app store (Google Play and Apple) or use your desktop Robinhood. Then go to Account > Free Stocks > Grab your referral link. It should look like share.robinhood.com/randomusernameandnumbers

Next go to Propeller Ads Propeller Ads – Display and Mobile Advertising Network and create an Advertiser account. Not a Publisher account. Deposit $100 under the "add funds" column. Then copy these campaign settings (will post images below).

Campaign Name: anything
Principle Model: SmartCPM
Ad Format: OnClick (Popunder)
Target URL: your share.robinhood referral link
Frequency: 1
Capping: 24h
CPA goal value: $0
Countries: United States
CPM: $0.5
Cities: Leave blank
Daily campaign budget: $10
Total campaign budget: $100
Audience: leave blank
Campaign schedule: Don't touch
Date start: today
Ad delivery method: Standard
Targeting: Advanced
Connection type: mobile
OS types: mobile
OS's: iOS
OS Versions: leave blank
Device types: phone
Devices: iPhone
Mobile ISP: leave blank
Proxy: not proxy
Browsers, browser language, zone limitation: leave blank
Do not check the box for "i want to get traffic from anti-adblock zones"

Click save changes, wait for campaign to be approved, and monitor. If your ad isnt spending increase the CPM bid $0.10, continue increasing $0.10/day until it spends. You'll get notified on Robinhood when a new person signs up. Then you just go to the Free Stocks tab in Robinhood again, and it'll let you play this card game where you pick a random card and then you get your free stock. In every case I've seen you'll get to the $500 before the week is over. Then you have to wait 30 days to withdraw. Cashing out is a two step process. You have to sell your individual stocks in Robinhood to get "buying power", then with that "buying power" you can withdraw the money to your bank. Let me know if you have any questions.

This feels like a lot of work to make $400 that I have to wait a month for. Thanks for sharing though, Im sure there are a few people who will benefit, or maybe learn about investing because they are forced to.

I really wanted to try this, but had an issue depositing funds. Could it work with any other ad platform?

There is a delay between the time people download the app, sign up for an account, and have the staff at robinhood approve their account. You don't get a free stock for people that just download the app, and most people don't create an account immediately. You won't get a free stock until the final step where robinhood approves their account. You can see pending accounts under the Free Stocks tab. You can also send a reminder notification for your pending accounts for them to finish the application. How many pending do you have? I wouldn't turn off the ads at only $4 spent. On all accounts I don't start getting conversions until 2-3 days in, or $20ish spent, because of the delay. I'm also concerned why you said 0 clicks, we're running pop up ads and there's no tracking code with robinhood so you would have no idea if you had 0 clicks or 10,000 people click. Its not like Facebook where you see how many people click because there is nothing to click, its a pop up. Maybe you can post a screenshot of the campaign and I can give more advice?

Propeller ads has really good popup traffic so I would try to figure out the depositing funds situation before trying other traffic sources. Zeropark would work really good for this, as others I know have ran this offer on there, but there's an application process to get approved for Zeropark and not everyone gets through.

I guess works for USA citizens only. Can I use fake adress, mobile number or I will need to aprove them?
You'll need a social security number to be approved for robinhood, its part of the brokerage/trading process. Maybe you can partner with someone in the USA to have them make an account and you run the ads?

I believe small chance, that this would be beneficial for anyone as the ad spending is cheap. I'll pass, but thank you for providing as such a great opportunity :)

I'm still encouraging people to try this. I've done it with 4 people and it was successful everytime. Don't be like the guy who spent $5 and quit because he didn't get results in 24 hours.

Where are the pop up ads being shown? Are you targeting certain URL's or is it random? Or are you strictly targeting Robinhood.com?
The pop ups are being shown on the sites that propeller ads work with. There's no targeting in terms of niches or interests. The only targeting we're doing are people browsing on iPhones.

Alright, will have to keep trying. I use robinhood, so not afraid to mess with this a little bit more.

Still bumping this. Like I said I did this with 4 people. I recently found out one of the people I taught has starting teaching multiple other people and they've all had success with this exact method as well. So far as I can tell only one person tried it and didn't understand how it works, thus gave up in 24 hours then never responded when I asked him to post screenshots of the campaign. And the other guy that said he would try this is in this thread is MIA, so I guess he never really did try it, I even messaged him and got no response.

This is seriously one of the easiest ways you'll make $500 guys. Its so easy that I'm actually shocked no one has actually given this a real effort to try yet. There's a bunch of threads about people trying to figure out how to make money. Thats why I made this thread. Sure it's not a multi-million dollar campaign, but it'll help out people that need a quick 500 bucks that they can use towards testing ads or something. There's no secret, I posted exactly what to do in the first post, I was really expecting this to blow up. By the time people in this thread get around to it, it'll be saturated by all the people that did it when the timing was right lol

Nice. How many pendings do you have in your robinhood (the people that signed up but are waiting to get approved)? I would stop the ad at $50 spend and you'll see a ton more referral commissions come in in a few days from the people who downloaded the app but havent signed up yet and the people who signed up but are waiting to be approved, you'll possibly reach the $500 cap or come close.

Had to go through hoops and send them pics of my driver's license and credit cards so that I could finally fund my account after my bank's fraud detection wouldn't let anything go through.

Just started my campaign, so I will report back what happens!

Thank you for posting this.

Haven't seen anything since I started campaign. Upping CPM to $0.60. Maybe they are slow over the weekend.
