    Here is a method I have been doing for quite some time now. It works great on a large variety of offers. I generally just do typical CPA offer/email submit methods for monetization, however some creativity can help you generate some huge profits from this method.

    This method is mainly for people who live in large cities.

    I live in a large American city about 10 blocks away from a professional football stadium. While there may not be a football game everyday, chances are there is a big concert or something along those lines every couple days or atleast once a week. Thousands of people come to these events and park in the parking lots.

    1. Each Sunday go to the Stadium Box Office and ask for a schedule of events going on that week. I have checked online and some large stadiums have schedules available and some do not. The stadium in my city doesn't have them available online however they are available for pick up in person.

    2. Research Research Research. This is very important. I have found that by preparing and trying to target my methods as much as possible to the people attending the event, I can get much better conversion rates. Figure out what type of event you are going to target. For Example Music Lovers attending a Concert.

    3. For this method you will be generating a HUGE ammount of leads, so don't be afraid to spend *SOME* money. Buy a domain that somewhat caters to the people you are targeting. I have been doing this method for about 2 months now and in the course of my work I have bought 5 domains that seem to cover ever possible event that comes around. Total Investment: $40.

    4. Print flyers targeting the event. Create a simple flier in MS Word or another similar program. Put some attractive title on it like: "For Our Fans!" and include information about how as a thank to all the fans who attended the concert, there is a give away to win the instruments used in that nights concert. All they have to do is go to the website, submit their email and fill in some additional information on the next page.

    5. Create a simple landing page that can be used over and over but directs the visitors to a CPA offer or some other means of monetizing the traffic.

    6. About 30-45 minutes after the event BEGINS walk up to the stadium, enter the parking lot and start placing fliers on cars. I generally print about 10 fliers/ page and print about 10,000 pages. Printing this large volume of pages can be very difficult, but if you are creative you can do it for a very low cost. I have a friend who works in an office and he prints them off for me at nights. Only charges me $20 for the whole batch.

    7. When you are distributing the fliers, there may be security guards and such in the parking lot walking around. I have only been "caught" once. When I got "caught" I simply told the security guard I worked for the band and was distributing a simple thank you note written from the band to all their adoring fans.

    8. It helps to also have some people help you out with flier distribution. I pay 3 local kids $20 a night to help me distribute the fliers. With 4 people distributing it goes pretty quick (< 1 hour).

    This method generally earns me in the neighbor hood of 8,000 to 25,000 web views a night and about 40% convert so if you monetize it correctly you can generate huge income with this method.

    I think what get's me such a high conversion rate is the CPA network I have been using. When I first started this method, I rotated networks and was getting anywhere between 5% and about 30%. After a few times trying, I finally found a good, small, but paying CPA network.

    Lots of trial and error has got me to the 40% mark. I don't think there is much more I can do to up that CTR without paying people to fill out the offers for me!

    lol this is awesome. A very good idea if you can get cheap paper like you can. For the normal person like us (no connections) it would cost us a lot more to get started. I wonder how much it would be to get an office supply to print them out....?

    You can try other areas with high traffic, malls, grocery stores, high schools, colleges.

    Be creative and good luck!

    I also tried to monetize off of stadium traffic, but thought too hard. I tried using FexMax for Bluetooth but in the US, there was little use. Even if they have bluetooth on (for a headset for ie) they have no idea what a "someone is asking to connect" message is, and get scared and delete immediately even if they accept. Regular ole' paper seemed to have better results... live and learn.

    Very good idea. The conversion rate of 40% is really possible, I guess.

    40% is doable i have experienced that, but 8,000-25,000? That is a very high response rate. How many people attend to a concert or even a game, 30k? 40k perhaps? Even if all liked your flier, how did they find the time to go to your website and follow the steps?

    I don't know, man. No offense but those numbers sound BS to me. If you would've said 500-1000 then yeah, i could say why not. But your claim is ridiculously high.

    So what CPA network is this? I live in orange county a few miles from a HUGE concert venue. Then again, I also live about 10-15 minutes from Angels Stadium..hmmmmmmmmmm

    Mind sharing one of your flyers?

    Thanks for sharing this btw :)

    Sharing a flyer would be nice, since 40% is pretty damn amazing, almost half!

    thats what I am wondering... I would be suprised if you got a 25 percent rate just going to the website.. THEN you have the conversions ontop of that maybe 10 -15 percent of that actually give you a lead...

    reason I said it must be a very "catchy" flyer to grab that much attention

    whats the flyer say? In theory this is one of the few methods you dont need to worry about over saturating

    sounds fishy 8000-25k by just having 10k fliers.25k visitors hell its like you are giving to each second person a flier and he is just running home and filling your email submit out

    Here is some expansion on the method to answer some questions:

    I print out 10,000 pages for each event. My pages generally have 6 or 8 fliers PER PAGE. So when I put these fliers on cars, I am really passing out 60,000 or so fliers. Getting 8k to 25k webviews translates to about a 12.5% "go home and go to website percentage".

    For my flier design, I include a picture of the band, team, or company hosting the event at my stadium. For bands I use a recent album covers. On the flier I include the text, "Thank you to our adoring fans! As a special thank you, go to www.sometargeteddomain.com to receive your free gift." THen have that be a landing page that then directs the users to a CPA offer or some other monetization method.

    From the 8k to 25k webviews I convert about 40%.

    Hope this clarifies any questions.

    60k fliers with 4 people thats 15k per person.You know how difficult it is to give away 15k fliers?And that would be like each damn person would get a flier from you .I cant imagine how you and 3 more people are giving each person a flier

    So 4 people can hand out 60,000 flyers in just 1 hour?

    That is 15,000 flyers you yourself puts up on that many cars in just 1 hour?

    Are you Superman?
