    I've had this idea for a while now but never put it into action.

    OK there are betting shops all over the place, even more now since the recession as shops closed down and reopen as bookies.

    Bookies are a license to print money. They attract mostly down-and-out men with dreams of getting rich.

    There are machines in these betting shops called FBOTs (fixed odd betting terminals). These machines are highly addictive and rob your money and most people play roulette.

    So here's my idea:

    Find those Clickbank roulette books (anyone got any links?) and print them out cheap. I know a high-volume copy shop near me that can do them.

    Staple each book and sell them. I think £5 is a good amount, seeing as these people are dropping hundreds and more into the machine and are desperate to win back all the money they lost. :D Maybe you could even sell it for a tenner. Downside is you probably can't sell more than one copy at each place as punters may share.

    Works better in bigger bookies where you won't be spotted so easily.

    If necessary, just hang outside where people go for cigarette breaks. Bookie can't do anything about it even if they wanted to.

    Only thing I will say is, don't do it local. Get on your bike, find a bookies, sell, move on, etc.

    What do you think?

    Sounds good, the idea is new so it may just work.

    Have you tried it yet? Any results?

    Interesting, although selling crappy ebooks on the internet behind a website is one thing, going into a bookies and flogging it is very much another!
    I think you'd definitely need a bike.

    I'd give them a flyer of some sort with your link on it, and perhaps a LP with one of those "make £1000's with my automatic gambling software" that I've seen pop up a lot recently

    better off standing outside a gala bingo handing out bingo flyers.

    There are plenty of affiliate schemes for horse racing and sports tipsters.
    Create a mobile squeeze page and have stickers printed with a strong call to action,
    (Big Winner guaranteed this weekend), some fake previous results, your site address
    and a qr code on it.
    Stick them in non obvious places where the punters will see them but not the staff.
    Hit them on a Saturday morning when all the builders are in there and
    Sunday before the big football matches.

    Interesting idea, but the clientele in those bookie joints scare the shit out of me. I will pass.

    No I'm not going for internet stuff, I want to sell there and then.

    btw I noticed the CB guide is a software :( must be an ebook somewhere.

    Yes, some are Chinese but not all. Whites, africans you name it, they are all addicted.

    And these men are from all walks of life. Some dumb and some smart. Low and middle class. Gambling affects them all. Don't think of a stereotypical drunk man. All kinds of men are in there. If you don't know it, go look and see for yourself. Many show live football and these places have become male hangouts if they don't wanna buy tons of beer.

    And they are highly addicted. Just do a google search for FBOT and you will see how crazy these guys are. They are not betting a safe £10 per week or anything and respecting their limits.

    These machines are evil. They are all controlled by one machine in Milton Keynes and designed to milk you dry. These guys will easily pay 10 quid if it gives them some hope. That's what you're really selling them! :D


    Sure, you could sell horse racing guides and stuff. But better to go after these crazy roulette players.

    why not hand out leaflets with your affiliate links to online casinos for them to spew money on rather than trying to sell some crappy roulette system which doesn't work.
    Either of which, I believe, is illegal though ( to do in the shop)

    forget the online angle.

    any mug punter who is in a bookies instead of getting the best odds online is dumb anyway. these guys don't use internet to gamble. think about it.

    yes the roulette system is crap. of course it is! all these systems sold are crap, that goes without saying it.


    selling books in a bookies is not illegal but they sure won't like it and might kick me out. like i said, they can't do shit about selling outside where the smokers are.
