    I thought up this idea last night, it is untested but it should work as it plays on peoples needs and satisfying them. ( i don't think this has been shared before )

    [​IMG]

    Step 1: buy a domain, preferably a .org, with the word career(s) in it.

    Ex: HealthCareers.org , AdministrationCareers.org

    Try and make it as easy to remember and as broad and vague as possible ( to reach the largest target audience)

    Step 2: Make a simple, yet effective little flyer that goes on a colored sheet of standard printer paper. You want to convey the message that YOU can help THEM get a career in the specified field.

    It would also be a good idea to include the web address on the bottom w/ little cut outs so they can take it and remember it.

    Execution:

    What you will be doing is going to your local unemployement office or area of high unemployment ( every city has at least one ) and put these flyers up. If you know a local spot where unemployed people hang out, ask the owner if you can put up your flyer to help the people out.

    On your site you can either redirect or put some BS text and a banner to a CPA offer for resumes, credit reports, jobs, etc. get creative.

    Tips:

    Check CJ they have a TON of offers that would work for this method.

    Since this is unchartered waters, people wont be suspecting a fraud or anything of the sort ( unlike Craigslist where almost everybody is hesitant ).

    :D Please leave a thanks or +rep if you feel you can benefit from this :D

    This is a modified version of something that's been going around for a while around my area. There are constantly flyers detailing "work-at-home" jobs which just lead to either a ClickBank hoplink or a CPA offer.

    It's a good method if you can deploy enough people to post these flyers all across a certain regional area though and continue doing so!

    Of course, getting the statistics for conversions is quite impossible here. Some people will take these and never visit the site. Others will visit and immediately be turned off, but they're already "blanks" to us in the first place even if we advertised it online. Tread lightly on this one, especially with what you place in the contents of your ad.

    Yea Team Zissou is right, tread lightly on this one, you have to look at the cost for you to print the ad as well. You could print 1000 ads but at what cost? If the profit out measures the cost, then by all means, do it! lol This is a good idea thoug, I want to try it in a way thats a little different though

    Great !

    This was sort of just a platform to get the ideas flowing.

    You could probably go and get a stack of 1k colored papers from office depot and print those badboys on your home printer ( as a test, of course Kinko's would be your best bet for mass printing ).


    You have to concider how desperate these people are for jobs. They have NO income and any glimmer of hope they see they will jump on it (I hate how unethical that sounds lol)

    But then none of them have cc info to submit and all of the leads will fail because they are all poor and have no jobs. Do you think the networks will like that too much? idk

    Debt cure offers have super high payouts. If you know that they have high debts, use that ;)

    Its all about understanding the potential leads, you could make a killing with this method if you can predict what type of offers they would gravitate towards

    Now debt offers sound like they would work. I mean hell, they already are in debt and have no money. Why not "help them out." lol

    Debt seems like the way to go with this method then :)

    All your leads will be in the same area.
    Could cause a suspicion if it's a violation of TOS.

    I like the idea to get me thinking of a twist.
    Thanks!!

    I agree, spreading this over different geo locations will be important to recieving your payout, but it's a great share!

    Best of luck with it

    What TOS would this be violating? just tell your AM in advance of what you are doing.
    You could probably even get an arrangement to get your own 800 number and input their data yourself.

    Actually.. Doing that is cheap. Well for me it is because I am good with Photoshop. But all you have to do is get some nice paper, white, blue, red, pink, or whatever color you want. You can probably spend $20 for a pack of them. Then if you can photoshop or know someone that can, have them make you an add/flyer cheaply and you print it out yourself, or you can take it to some business and they will do it for you pretty cheap.

    Anyways, this is a great method!! Keep it up!! :D
