    For my newbie friends or anyone that is looking for some quick money over a period of time I came up with an idea that is doable and very cost effective.

    First, how annoying and dangerous is it to see people texting while driving. Well stats show each year, 21% of fatal car crashes involving teenagers between the ages of 16 and 19 were the result of cell phone usage. This result has been expected to grow as much as 4% every year. Now that is an alarming rate and you probably have seen Oprah and her stand against no texting or cell phone use while driving.(Also, lets not make this political as if you do drive when you text or talk that?s up to you just talking about a method. So, your probably saying what the F*&K already get to the damn point, okay I will.

    1. Get a domain with a great keyword in it like textingteendriver or something similar. Find a good discount I like name.com but you can always go with something else.

    2. The theme should be eye catching but honestly any theme with the ability to hold pictures will do. It?s smart to rotate the pictures around and check to see which photo has a better viewing rate and google analysis is great for that.

    3. (This takes some work and it is not necessary but could make your site stand out) go with a friend(wish I had one jk lol) while he or she is driving and take pictures of people on their phones while they are driving and post them up. Now, you can either put a shame list up, put stats on how dangerous it is to drive while texting etc but the point is you can profit by adsense or amazon(think of wireless solutions of ear pieces) and run with it.

    4. Now the problem you may have is the person wanting to take down the picture, I don?t know if this is possible but tell them to sign up for a cpa offer or use C P A L E A D on the picture and lock it or use wpguardian on your site and you will take it down. Sounds ehhh okay I guess. (You can monetize your site with cpa related items and add the all important Opera link about texting and the video and put below it a poll or anything, you could lock the video down also. Here is the link btw http://www.oprah.com/oprahshow/The-Dangers-of-Texting-While-Driving-No-Phone-Zone-Video

    5. How do I get traffic, use youtube my friends, its easy to put together a slideshow of people on their cell phone or even better submit it to a press release and show how much of a service your doing as informing others how dangerous driving while texting is a danger to the public and your taking upon yourself to help spread the word. Remember, Facebook and social media sites are you friends for traffic.

    Lastly, I didn?t try this out as I am doing other methods at the moment and I am in the process of moving but I felt I should give back to a community that has helped me make money online and with out it I would have nothing. So, I am not asking for thanks or reps but I just wanted to give back and if the idea is crappy then I do apologize but I thought it could be molded into different things. Any questions I will answer them as best I can and wishing everyone the best.

    Thanks for the share MrNewbie :)

    Just to throw this out there.. might also want to think about teen parenting forums/communities and maybe work this site out with a twist. You could still use the same stats and then maybe redirect to a offer that promotes car insurance. Simply state that the example insurance company offers a save drivers discount which your kids might be elligable for so not texting while driving keeps them safe and saves you money! :) Those offers pay good and don't convert to bad with the right Idea. Many insurance companies have a save driver discount and conversion will be good because parents love both their kids and money!

    A valiant effort but im sorry - this isnt going to work.

    Let's look at the facts - your going to drive around and take pictures of people texting while driving? How many are you likely to take per hour? How much petrol is going to cost you to drive around?

    Your then going to put the pictures on a site, great, but what are the chances of the person you took the picture of ever seeing your site? Even with some amazing promotion you are still more likely to win the lottery than for that person to ever come across your site.

    You will get paid what, $2.50 for each cpa lead conversion? Sorry dude but this isnt going to make you a profit. Brave idea though, at least your thinking outside the box :)

    I see many people making many videos with sound on youtube,how do these people make those videos?What software do they use for that purpose?
    And how do you integrate sound with a video showing pictures?

    I do see your point as I was just stating you could drive around(if you happen to be with friends or just doing everyday things, not going out of your way and of course you have to be a passenger), also meaning if you wanted to put extra time in it or just get pictures from photobucket
    HTML:
    http://photobucket.com/images/driving%20texting/
    or something like that could be feasible Your right, most people will not see their face on the site but if you do a group on facebook it could get noticed. Plus, locking down any content like someone said above, redirecting, could bring in some money. Its not word for word but a general idea.

    Oh and you can use windows movie maker to make the slide show.

    Sorry if my comments are all over the place and like I have stated before this is just an idea to be stretched or molded not to be taken word for word but will be happy to answer or help out.

    who says you even have to show their faces to prove that they were caught texting. Send them mass messages via facebook, or make a group saying 'have you ever texted while you were driving? if so, your probably have been sprung. Find your photo at www.whaterver.com and have a snoop at your friends while your at it'

    This is a great example of the power of brainstorming.

    So many people get stuck thinking, "how can I come up with something people will be interested in." Well this is an example of how you do it.

    Just an everyday thing that keeps being reported on, and because mrnewbie has his brain open to ideas, here comes this halfformed was to make money with something a little different.

    My guess is that ideas like this occur to mrnewbie several times a day, even though most don't gel into as good an idea as this one.

    Just keep this type of thought process going on in the back of your head all the time. You'll soon have notepads overflowing with ideas just waiting for you to try out.
