    haha so I had to share this idea of mine.. I work at a mall and lucky for me we have a tabacco shop in our mall who's owner has always been friendly to me :)

    Long story short I found a email submit offer that pays $1.50 per submit and he is now starting to carry my flyers tomorrow about a cigarette survey which gives the consumer a chance to win a $100 visa gift card lol.. Dropping off 50 flyers tomorrow as a test run lol.

    The opportunitys are out there ;)

    Keep us posted on how this works out. How much is each flyer costing you? A lot will be just thrown away but some may be used.

    Might lose him some business when they find out it's a bogus offer. Overall, it does have potential. Hopefully you setup a front domain because I can't imagine response rates would be good if it's a ridiculous looking url.

    Nah going to buy a $1 .info domain tonight lol. Yeah .com is more familiar but .info will look more realistic for a customer survey

    Nice man.

    Offline is indeed overlooked. I need to also look into offline advertising. The profit is out there!

    Know one well remember a .info, most of the people don't even know what a .info is. Go with a .com, its only $6 its not like its a big investment.

    If you have the connections, I bet you could do this with anyone. :p

    That would be pretty hard to prove. If you ever got caught (big if), I'm sure you could pony up the dough and be fine anyway. Regardless, you're taking in their emails, not giving out your address and blood samples. ;)

    true indeed. been banking on that very fact.

    i think its because when u advertise offline for your online venture, people think you're legit and don't have to think twice.

    If your going with your own domain make the people input their email in your landing page also so you could collect them for future email marketing.

    Hey that's a good conversion ratio. Keep the updates coming, also...it might be a good idea to find out how many people are taking your fliers per day to find out what kind of traffic you are getting but not seeing.
