    I have been thinking about doing the following:
    print some flyers, saying something like "this website is giving away free ipads. go to win-ipad-lol.com
    post them everywhere i go.
    monetize the traffic

    I have a few questions

    1. would it be illegal to post these flyers in the US? sounds like a crime to me, since you are lying for monetary gain??
    2. has anyone done this offline method before? how was your success rate?
    2. assuming I get lots of traffic, what is the most profitable way of converting the traffic to $$

    It's illegal in most places, but you probably won't go to jail - instead people will just get pissed at you. I doubt you convert much on it, frankly I wouldn't waste my time with models like this - learn how to build a business like SEO or how to consult - just my $.02.

    I've seen alot of post flyers in US gig in fiverr. If it's illegal they can't do that.

    BTW, your idea is great. Thanks for share this stuff
