    Had this great idea while I was at U2's concert at Croke park last month.
    You know the way Bono asks people to hold up their phones during the concert. I thought this would would be a great opportunity for some CPA offers.

    Bear with me.

    Create a short video advertising your CPA ringtone offer with your CPA url appearing somewhere in the video.
    You could throw in U2 music video clips etc be creative. You could even leave instructions telling them to pass this video on to their friends.
    Put this video on your phone.
    Name your phone Bono, U2 or One Campaign and throughout the concert send this video out to as many people as you can via bluetooth!

    So people are going to be holding their phone up and will feel it vibrate or light up brighter and they will think it's part of the show when they see it's from bono!! :callyou:

    This has not been tried by me (but is truly avantgarde!) but may be an opportunity for those of you who will be attending their 360 tour over the coming year! You might even make the price of the concert ticket back!!:p

    There has to be at least somebody on this forum who will be going to a U2 concert between now or next year or someother major outdoor gigs. I'd imagine music festivals would convert well!?

    Glad to see another U2 fan around. I went to Croke park on the 25th, and also attended London on the 15th (what a great playlist, what a shitty crowd)

    About the idea.... You will definetely get some exposure, but how much??? The bigger the file and the bigger the distance between sender and receiver the longer it takes to send a file. And video files may be even bigger... How much time are you gonna lose sending files?

    I'd rather watch the concert than wasting the time on my phone.

    Good thinking, but I'm not sure if it would be worthy or doable (in terms of volume of videos sent).


    I would do this BEFORE the concert, when people are queing up....this way you are more likely to get people looking at their phones. At the same time, during the queuing time, there are some ladies going around with small laptops advertising the ONE campaign, so people may be more aware about it.

    At my computer... how else would I be on a forum?
    This gives me an idea... I could try to make a program that is always trying to send a CPA URL like that over bluetooth. Whenever you are going thorugh a crowded place, you turn it on, and hope some teenagers are looking at their cellphones :p this would really require no work, but it probably wouldnt make too much. After leaving it on a while, i'm sure you could get a few downloads. What CPA companies offer cellphone CPA links though? Would it have to be for smartphones/iphones?

    This can also work for free movie tickets/movie survey CPA when you're queue-ing movie tix.
