    I'm looking for an affiliate program or more ideas on how to use offline advertising with college kids.

    I go to school on a 16,000 student campus.....I have access to all halls and can post flyers and slip postcards under dorm doors. My first idea was to refer people to a survey site (which we all know are shit to do yourself) advertising "Make Money in your dorm" on the postcards

    People sign up with my referal and do surveys, I get a % commission for every survey they do.

    My concerns: Even with a decent amount of referals, each survey still only pays out to me .20 or .30 cents and I possibly won't even make back what it costs to print postcards when they realize the surveys pay nothing lol.

    I am well aware of CPA networks and I'm a member of a few....however I feel that most of the offers do not appeal to college kids, "make money with surveys" I feel like would and they could churn away at let's say 5 surveys, which would pay out more than a simple cpa offer.

    Any thoughts and suggestions on this? Thanks BHW

    Whats the country?

    What level is the college? - No offence to you, but are there programs there that would attract people who would be dumb enough to do stuff online?

    I know a lot of dating sites have a high payout for join ups.

    No offense taken...it's a state university....plenty of people dumb and smart which is why I would like to take the opportunity to monetize.

    Thanks for suggesting dating offers, good to look into, I suppose I just shouldn't get caught putting them under peoples doors :)

    I am a beginner but you could always try CPA with the common niches. "Win a Macbook!", "Free PSN Codes", etc. Awhile back I even tried giving away NBA tickets but I never had any success with it, maybe you can!

    Check out pay per call offers.

    There were offers that either helped students get loans or get out of debt (caused by student loans). These are seasonal offers but I'm sure if they exist anymore.

    Just contact a few pay per call networks and let them know that you're interested in edu pay per calls.

    Most of the dating offers on PayPerLead payout for like 24 and older men... Just keep that in mind when you are looking at offers.
    the Pay Per Sale are for whom ever... But most PPL are 24+M.

    You could sell these to online masters programs. Look up Deltak and Pearson. All they do is lead gen for universities.
