    this summer I have a lot of free time, I live in amsterdam and was thinking about doing some study on offline marketing.

    I can use a car, bike , motorcycle and a plane (what a plane? yes my mom has one..)

    I want to test a few things:

    1. walking with a shirt in amsterdam all day
    2. stickers around the dam and kalverstraat
    3. flyer's
    4. flying over amsterdam and the dutch shore with a plane ( I assume you understood I would use a plane for that)+ big banner behind it

    any more suggestions? I am very interested myself what these results will bring compared with the costs. since I can get the most things free like the plane I am not losing a lot money.

    Interesting thread, subscribed to see how you do with the various methods. Since you are in Amsterdam you could try giving away rolling papers branded with a website to tourists? Maybe it's too much effort to get them made and delivered to you compared to the other ways.

    Are you going to use different sites to measure the traffic levels of each method? I always wondered if people ever take action after seeing planes with banners on them. Good luck on your quest.

    I think I just go for some 301 domains and with GA I can check referring sites, so that wouldn't be a big problem,.

    but I am also really curious myself. how much people will go to that kind of link?
