    I havent tried this YET... But I will.

    What I am thinking is this. Remember I am new to this, so be kind, haha:D

    Ok so I have just bought a domain name and I have Linked my domain directly to an affliate link associated with the domain name.

    My plan now is to get some business cards made up, some flyers, an A-frame sign and some posters, and some sign up forms.

    What I then will do is go to what they call "sexpo" they have it once a year here and they get 60,000 people over the weekend.

    I will then sign people up there and then with the forms and then, I will go to my domain link and type in there details and then the information will go to there email.
    the reason I will do it is because if I am only giving them information and leaving it in there hands, most likely most of them wont sign up they will forget about it.

    At $33usd per sign up I imagine I could be on a winner.

    What are your thoughts everyone , How can I improve this?
    has anyone tried it? should I go through with it ?
    does anyone Great ideas for products ?

    You will be signing them all up with the same ip. Since your method really isn't blackhat you can get permission from the advertiser to do things like this so they can sign directly up at at the "sexpo" and the advertiser will know they will all come from the same ip.

    Nothing really new here.

    The problem that I see is that this can be categorized as fraud by the CPA company (I'm assuming you use CPA) because it will looks like you sign-up yourself many times from same PC (even when the data and details are from real persons) that will end up you will need a lots of proxies. But then arise another problem which is the conversion rate (the rate between people that follow that affiliate link and people that actually signing up). I assume that your domain/website is new and it have zero or low traffic at this moment.

    I think it will be better if you just give people information and let them sign-up by themselves.

    I hope it helps you.

    I suggest you do a mailing list-basis...have them all opt in and blast them a day after.

    It wouldn't be fraud if you get permission and notify the advertiser what you plan to do. In the early years of IM I did something similar and it worked well, but it's less work what we do now.

    It's a good idea, but it would be wise to get permission from all the right people before doing this, since you'll be doing it all from the same computer.

    You could even run a real store like this. Lease a small building, have people come in and order what they want, maybe have some displays of the real products, and then order the product through your affiliate link on your in store computer and ship it to the address they provide.

    You would have an unlimited inventory at your hands and the best part about it is that you wouldn't have to keep stock.

    Most of the people that have posted replies to this message seem to be concerned that you'll have problems because you'll be signing up many people all from the same IP address. There's an easy solution to this problem - there's software available that allows you to quickly change proxies at the click of a button. That way, each signup will have a different IP address from the previous signup.

    Get permission to sign them all up on the same IP first, make sure you make it clear what you intend to do. Don't try to hide your IP, you are doing nothing wrong.

    I agree with others when they say nothing really new here BUT the big difference between you and them is that you are doing it. If you use this strategy you can make a LOT of money in a weekend. Don't procrastinate, don't let anyone put you off. Phone up, get permission, get a stand and make some cash.

    Good luck mate.

    Oh and report back when you are done so all the others can say "wow, I wish I had done that".

    Am I the only one that groans when I see threads that say...

    "have the perfect way to make alot of money.."

    followed by....

    "I haven't tried this yet..."

    ?

    And you've left out key parts to your brilliant idea.

    -Sexpo's and the like charge money to vend or display there. Rates vary. But free its not.

    -You need around 60 thousand sign up sheets or 60k people at a porn convention to touch your laptop. :eek: While I have never ordered more than 10K fliers at a time, I'm going to guess print and shipping on some sign ups is expensive, and printing your own is a part time job.

    -Also at Porn'o'rama's you'll need hot chicks at your booth. Hot chicks cost money. Uglier girls cost less. You did buy a booth right? And tables that look fly? What are you wearing? Do you look good and engaging to wrangle up potential sign ups?


    Your idea isn't bad, just needs some more thought put into it. Learn from my mistakes! For example I stopped an offline business card campaign because I needed to get a few thousand hits per day. Even if I get 5000 biz cards out in the streets a day, I'd need a 40% return which I'll never see. So even though the biz cards were generating traffic, I switched up my offline methods because I'd never hit an effective ratio. And where I live we have intersections that see 60k visits a day, without conventions in town.

    With a little bit of thought and a calculator you can know how good or bad your idea is. Numbers are a beautiful thing.

    Don't let my terse and dry tone be offensive, thats just how I talk. I'm really trying to help.

    I still think I'm a noob but these threads by noobs saying how they got some great way to make money but haven't tried it yet are WACK.

    Why not try it first and then report back?

    I can show you how to make a million.......stop posting on BHW, keep reading and searching, and do it.

    How could you do this? I'd really like to know. On the surface it sounds like a great idea but you would still have the same problem you'd have if you just took their info and signed them up later? I'm not being negative, I just want to know what you had in mind when you posted this. :)

    This is a spin off of an established mall method that was posted here somewhere I believe.

    You find the right offer, call the advertiser, tell them you are getting a booth and will be signing people up on the spot. They understand, and most will approve you.

    Or you could go the unemployment office, stand outside the doors and promote Monster.com :)

    Call the CPA company and you should be fine with doing this.
    I was when I did something along those lines =)

    Firstly Thanks all for the feedback it is awesom ..
    but
    everyone seems to be concerened that ti would like bad making sales all from the same IP address..... even if I was trying to get as many sales from my IP address, I dont think the company would be that unhappy as.

    The product/service would cost $49.49 and they pay me a commision of $30 ..

    Love to hear more thoughts.

    As for the good looking girls. pay them strictly on commision..... and maybe some free love haha.

    but in all seriousness... you are right about the start up costs . Money I dont have .. I need to go back to the drawing board.

    Any one from the east coast of australia here wanna do some brain storming with me face to face ?

    cpa is cost per action, you get involved by applying to cpa companies

    for example

    hydra
    xy7
    Market Leverage
    Amped Media

    There are many more as well

    If you plan on spending a lot of time doing offline marketing you might want to speak to your affiliate manager. Just remember that a sign-up is not a guarantee to get paid. Make sure you know what your affiliates except for a particular campaign before you go and waist hours on marketing it. Nothing more shitty than getting 100's of dollars only to see them kill the campaign
