    So I'm a college student. I think that I have a really good opportunity here (campus marketing), but I'm not sure how to use it.

    The obvious one is CPA offers. I don't know what would convert well here. A lot of the things that require surveys and "free trials" seem like they wouldn't be well received at all.

    Locked content? I thought about finals and class notes here, but everyone already knows the sites to go to look for those.

    Advertising Swagbucks/other GPT sites seems like the best bet.

    I've thought about homebrewing/e-cigarettes/etc. as well, but I feel like I'm in over my head with dropshipping and I doubt affiliate links are going to bring in much at all.

    Any advice is appreciated :D

    You won't know what's the best until you try them out and compare the stats.
    Here's an idea: print out a picture of a sexy girl with a domain on top of it that redirects to dating cpa offer.
    Go take action.

    I'm sure there are decent opportunities in which you can earn using the students that are at your college, but you don't exactly have to. I go full time to a university but I haven't taken the time to try to earn from them. I have used other methods like Amazon affiliates and dropshipping to pay for my tuition while I'm going. Just don't limit yourself.

    Assuming you're advertising offline, put up bandit signs or hand out fliers with {YourCollegeName}dating.com >> redirect to dating offer.
    Put fliers on thousands of cars advertising pay-per-call auto insurance (if you don't make money with this you aren't even trying).
    I would test other offers too - maybe DUI attorney offers. And paypercall will likely convert better than having people type in a domain name or using a QR code.

    You could also try health type offers (beauty stuff for girls, work-out / abs stuff for guys).

    But make sure to pick multiple offers, as many as you can find, and split test the hell out of them. For that matter, split test anything!

    Example...

    Print 50 flyers with offer #1, design #1 and drop them off in a location #1. Then print out another 50 flyers with offer #2, design #2 and drop them off around location #1. Repeat for every location / design / offer.

    Then with some proper tracking you will soon find out which offer design and location combinations are the best.

    Okay; if you care about your image on campus, I wouldn't put up pictures of sexy girls on posters & hang them up on your college.... Well I mean you could hire a freshmen to do it for you... But this is my suggestion:

    Colleges are all about showing their pride in their school. Join an affiliate program for 'Spirit Gear' that makes custom apparel that has your college's logo on them & other stuff. Not to mention Greek letters, etc.....If you join a good one, I'm sure you could make 10-20% commission on whatever sales you get.. just do some research!

    I mean I am not dissing anyone's ideas about the whole dating site and other CPA offers... but realistically if you want to do things like that on your campus, you are going to have to go through the Dean of Students, etc.... or you could end up in trouble if they find out it's you who is posting such ads on their campus.

    Another thing I could recommend is offering a DD taxi-service that you and some buds could have. THIS is something that you could post flyers out on your campus (firstly making sure it is ok to do so w/ your college's rules)... Put your phone number or email at the bottom and charge a flat rate of like $1/mile or something like that...

    All of these ideas aren't really BHW material, but can be integrated into a variety of ways. I myself am a Junior in college & have utilized the DD service.. But that brings in like $50/day on Friday & sometimes Saturday.

    best of luck. College bills suck

    You could apply for a non-student job on campus if they offer tuition reimbursement to employees. There's an article about a guy who went to Harvard for his Masters and it only cost him $500 because we got a normal job at the institution. I don't have enough posts to post the link but just search "
    [h=1]How I Obtained a Masters Degree from Harvard for $500-without Scholarships"[/h]

    If you want to have fun and earn money, try creating a few twitter, facebook, instagram, and snapchat profiles about your university. Like "*University Name* Probs". Or "*University Name* Blackouts", there's a lot of potential ideas.

    Spend time following everyone in your university, I would buy aged accounts to start with 500+ non related followers, so you can follow more and your profiles actually look popular, and you'll be more likely to get follow backs.

    Soon you have thousands of followers and fans across your channels, the best part is you just need to party and have fun to provide content for it. And college students will provide you with all the content you could ever need. If you make a confession or blackout account you'll get so many submissions you'll never be able to post them all.

    Then go around to local area bars, or businesses that rely on the college population. Sell them promotional posts, and help them draw attention to special events or deals they'll be having.

    It won't make you the most money you could possibly make, but at least its fun and won't seem like work quite as much.

    Colleges where u live must be freaking filled with rich people....

    You can't even get a student to pay 2$ for a beer here.

    I was going to write a bunch of bullshit ways to make money but college traffic probably unless from harvard etc is shitty.

    This probably is the best solid advice you will get the only fucking thing worth something on campus is a pussy.

    Broke college girls pussy=equal to $$

    Not that i'm recommending this as tbh there isn't that much money in it but if you're desperate and girls are too yeah you might be able to get around 1k a month for a girl and then take a cut out of it yourself.

    Also maybe this thread is something for u http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...aziest-funniest-method-im-still-laughing.html
