    Ok. This one is so simple. I went to the local college a few days ago to do some offline promoting for another product. When I got there I noticed on EVERY bulletin board was the same ad to do data entry work online. EVERY single tab on EVERY single flier was missing. They had taken them all!

    I decided to do a survey site instead. I'm sure you could do textbooks, surveys, data entry. Use your imagination. I set up an easy one with CB took me all of 5 minutes. Started running it a few days ago and have been getting a couple of sales a day. Easy money. Here's the complete method.



    Go sign up for a decent looking survey affiliate program. Make sure it looks clean and professional and is not one of the crappier sites.

    Use micr*soft w*rd template feature to make a flyer. In W*rd 2007 they are under marketing fliers. Mine was a simple flier with pull tabs at the bottom that simply said :

    STUDENTS MAKE EASY CASH TAKING SURVEYS ONLINE!

    (picture of a hand holding cash)

    WWW.XXXX.COM

    (I bought a .com domain name so I didn't have to mess with any aff ID on the flier and did a simple redirect in my hosting control panel.)

    Go slap them up on some bulletin boards around the school. I took a mini stapler and put the fliers in a simple school type $1 folder. Walk up to a board, 2 quick staples and move on. I do about 20-25 boards in an hour. I live in a big city so there are tons of schools around. If you are in a smaller town try to think of places where students hang out. Maybe make 1/4 sheet fliers and ask if you can put them at the local businesses.

    Let the sales start to roll in. There is no reason you should not make $50 a day with this method with minimal work.

    It's a good idea. Think ive heard it mentioned before.

    Would be better if it was backed up with results.

    For this particular college and the survey program the stats are:

    2 days, 21 clicks, 3 sales, $60+. That's one round of fliers, going back in the morning.

    This method will work but you also can do same in supermarket bulletin boards etc and also postings for work from home type sites are hot right now.

    i'm too lazy to go anywhere... why leave your computer and waste time and energy to make money offline when you can make so much more money online?

    CB == clickbank in this context? Or is this a CPA offer? I'm clearly not understanding... :(

    there are actually legitimate market research agents that advertise at universities and organise for people to do market research group sessions with marketing firms. the students make about $40 per hour in these. perhaps these existing programs make your ads look like they may be more legit and the students are used to the idea already.

    There is no reason this won't work, especially the flier would looks very attractive to me if I find it one year ago.

    I am getting at least 10-20 hits a day on this offer, just from these fliers. I am not converting very high (about 1 in 25) so I am rotating offers. If anyone knows of a survey offer that converts well, please pass it on.

    Thanks!

    Ok. Switched offers to a One page email submit for a survey. Pay's a little over a buck. Not huge money, but I am converting 33% so far. That's crazy. Only up to about $5 a day, but it's been consistent every day and that's from one school. I 've posted fliers twice now, and just did the second one last night. On almost ALL of my fliers there were tabs missing, and most had about half gone.

    I figure if I had this offer running the whole time, it would be well over $225 so far with a 33% conversion rate. Not bad for a few hours work.

    I don't see why it has to be a " Vs. " at all. Do both.

    Next time I go I am taking 2 different fliers for 2 completely different offers, and post them both at the same time. I'm already there.

    I just had to smack myself when I thought about this last night as I was tacking that 2nd batch up.
