    We've run across an opportunity to give away government phones. $9 per phone given, paid weekly. Takes 2 minutes to sign up customer (in person or online). Only catch is they have to show their Drivers License/ID and Medicaid or EBT card. One phone per household. Any ideas how we can scale this up?

    You want to scale up how people claim governor phones?
    Why not do like they used to in my neighborhood, put up a tent with "FREE PHONES! FREE DONUT & COFFEE! SIGNUP" they would have a line half the block. All the neighborhood junkies, hookers, pimps, and thieves were stopping over. Go into the real world and scale up.

    The LifeLine programs are for low income earners, no? Or is this some other scheme? It's quite tricky to monetise that demographic because generally speaking they don't have any residual income to spend. Presumably you wouldn't be handling the documents either as they themselves would have to apply - as far as I'm aware it's not something you can do on their behalf unless you set up a program in your State through official channels to distribute of offer the service.

    I will find more details tomorrow, but to my knowledge they would upload their Drivers License and EBT card, input their social, and that's it. Yes, it's a program like Lifeline and others. They don't need income, as the phone is free. The only reason why they might need income is to upload their paystubs. But they wouldn't need to do that if they're already on a government program like EBT.

    I Supose u are in USA? If so anay free item would spread as fire in subburbs for people in need ( i guess ) so basically target people on FB living in areas where the income is low.

    As poor people may wont have any way to go online or use internet, use the poeple on Fb you have targeted as "RELAY" To spread by mouth your offer , then they can go a cyber cafe or what ever .

    Just direct contact with this users ( hard work at the begining ) let them share for you any info on their walls, so their frieds acan act to as spread army.

    Is this is too slow ...

    Try also contacting places where people could go and do an offline marketing, press realease , put flyiers in stores or charity places.

    Other idea, take yellow pages, look for the districts you may think more pople would accep the free offer, call them ask how many menber familis are, if all have phone if they want a free one etc and let them contact you in case they say no...

    This also would spread as fire btw neighbours.

    Maybe is not a good idea, but hope it helps, is hardwork maybe but an idea that also could bias in a political manner if they are from goverment , so you can ask to do the work to the major in charge in each city , so you dont move, you offer free "propaganda" to the major , they gave free phones , get people happy , they do the work and you get profits.
