    Ok so second method posting today from me. I recently helped out a guy here also - http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/making-money/767885-services-local-businesses.html which reminded me of something else I did using the same kind of service.

    We all know how important it is to build an email list. But a few people don't have a product or anything to offer.

    I came up with this method a few years ago when I was having trouble getting email signups while a more popular local high street store were doing the same and getting plenty.

    Now unfortunately the guy i purchased the service from has since stopped doing it but I have substituted my little English town for NEW YORK CITY BABEH WOOOOOO MERICA!!!!

    So here goes ...

    What does this require?
    Email Account
    Fiverr Account
    About $20 - $50 spare dollars

    Step 1 : Fiverr
    - Head over to fiverr.com and navigate into the Flyers and Handouts section.
    - Sort by high rating and choose a city (Our example is New York)
    - Find a good seller - https://www.fiverr.com/extrainput/post-50-flyers-in-new-york-city-or-manhattan-colleges (Not mine choose whatever you like)
    - Contact the seller and see exactly where they are situated and where they will be handing the flyers out, As in Street Names etc ...

    Step 2 : Research Time
    - Open a new Google page and search for local business who are on or near where the flyers will be being handed out.
    - Email them and ask them if you can run a local lead campaign for them. You will bring in leads if they are willing to offer some kind of exclusive. I usually ask for a 25% off voucher code to be set up just for my campaign.
    - I had 6 out of 10 local businesses agree and send me a voucher code exclusive just to me.

    Step 3 : Autoresponder set up.
    - Sign up to Getresponse or Aweber (Or mailchimp if you're a cheapo) and set it up so whenever someone signs up to your form they get sent the code automatically.

    Step 4 : Domain and Landing Page
    - Grab a domain name. A cheap .info will do. So for example [BUSINESSNAME]Coupon.info
    - Create a landing page anyway you prefer, example wordpress, weebly, leadpages etc ...

    Step 5 : Flyer Design
    - Either grab a free flyer template and brand it with the stores name, logo and colours or head over to fiverr and have one made. Make sure to include your domain name and ideally a QR code leading to your page (You can generate QR codes for free online or have one made at fiverr).

    Step 6 : Final Words.
    People will get handed the flyer, see it's from an official local brand and not some cheap coupon site and be intrigued. They head to the website enter their email which gets added to your list and they get a coupon to use. They enter the store buy a coffee and a doughnut (or whatever) and mention your coupon. They get 25% off.

    Two things will happen after this. You can offer all the signups other related products and the company you helped will be begging for a larger campaign which of course .... you charge them for.

    You're welcome :D

    Did you charge them for the initial campaign? - No I did it for free (That increases the yes replies as they have nothing to lose but I still gain email subscribers and a more likely chance they will want a future paid service)

    What if they all say no? - Move on to a new town / city

    Do I have to use Fiverr or can I pay for my own flyer distribution in any place and town I wish?
    - Of course but I use fiverr for this example since it's dirt cheap

    You mentioned a large campaign, How much did you charge them for it? - One I charged $600 for a 10,000 distribution and another paid me $500 per month (Paid in a single 6 month chunk of $3000) to do a 10,000 distribution every single month.

    Why contact the business? Just do the flyers anyway, add their brand and get subscribers? - Because that's a dick move. If you do it without asking them they will end up getting people coming in asking about the flyer discount all day. The guy handing out the flyer will be quizzed, the people in the area will lose trust in flyers. Why do that when you can do it probably and gain so much more.
