    Hi,

    I'm thinking about promoting a dating or diet/health offer in a local newspaper. Peopl then have to go online and sign up for the offer.

    1) Do you think that idea could work? Or is a different kind of offers better for that method, e.g. email submits?

    2) Do you have any experience with newspaper ads for locked content, e.g. an ebook?

    3) How do newspaper ads work for you in general?

    Thanks a lot!

    add a coupon on the newspaper so you can track your conversions, but I don't think that the method is good.

    It's pretty much a nice idea and actually does work with nice twists. You just have to pick a good newspaper and nice offer and see how the conversation process goes.

    Instead of paying for ads in local newspaper, why don't you just distribute flyers? Should be cheaper.
