    I've just started using copeac - and been looking at some of the incentivizeable offers such as: Netflix trial that pays $22.75 per free trial.

    There are a lot of other offers and copeac isn't the only network w/ incentivizable lead programs.

    What if you did a website listing a bunch of offers, then underneath each offer a statement like try netflix and we will donate $11 to charity.

    This is a win-win - customer gets a free netflix trial, you get 11.75, and a charity gets $11. By giving something back, you may even end up getting a lot more customers.

    I'm wondering if anybody has tried this with success?

    How would you verify who signed up? Or would you just donate to your chosen charity and do number of sign ups X 11.75?

    I would just do #of signups x $11 or I could even just do a 50% donation of my total monthly revenue from that marketing campaign.

    Of course I'd keep 100% for other sites not related to charity.

    dang it shhh aha i've had this idea brewing for a while. it seems like when u come up with an idea tons of other ppl come up with it at the same time so u really gotta be quick about getting it started.

    there already are some sites that do this but it would be possible to make this really big and become a 5 star charity.

    I think it would be cool to do something like this w/ green related charities / non-profits.

    Yeah, and write up a method on it if you can make it work. I think the biggest hurdle is finding targeted traffic, ie if you could get every red cross member in the world to a page jointodonateredcross.com, you would be a millionaire, just getting them the site name is the hard part.

    Oh I am well branded in the whitehat world - my blog gets 500+hits per day(when I don't write anything, on days that I do blog I get 2000+hits).

    I also have 6000 twitter followers. I could just blog about it and get some initial traffic, then work on some blackhat seo techniques, and maybe do some youtube marketing as well - maybe even get some radio stations or news media to talk about it, who knows!

    I could even make a lot more by compiling the whole method into an ebook, and selling it on DP for $75 a pop, lol.

    I'm going to put write a check for 50% of my monthly CPa income and send it to St Jude's Children's hospital, and/or other charities. I might add a poll as well so people can pick which charities matter most to them.

    Does it matter which charity he chooses? That doesnt really have any bearing on it.

    Good idea tabims

    Nice idea. This sounds like it'd be a great idea.

    Maybe you could put a list of available charities to donate and have each lead choose the charity they want to be donated to when they sign up?

    just thinking out loud...

    thats what i was gonna do!

    like each member has their own profile page and it would show how much money they have raised and to which charities they have chosen to send it to when they reach their goal amount.

    its not too farfetched because ive come across a few incentive sites where each member has a profile page that shows how many points they've earned and what prizes they've won.

    if i were to do this i would not steal any of it. also if u gonna go the non-profit route or charity route there are tax things things u apply for and also your organization will be scrutinized and rated on a 5 star point system. if u were to scam out ppl fronting as a charity u would be in big trouble.

    but u could still make money tho if u get a large user base u could have them complete offers to help keep the site up which earn them like a mug or w/e theres tons of possibilites all it takes is some action. a little research will probably uncover a shit load of these sites.

    also know there are authority sites who will either give your charity a thumbs up or thumbs down (http://www.causecast.org/)

    i love this idea too, i was thinking of setting up something similar to free online cash system.... but network shaving is something that makes me hesitate.
