    I sell kettle corn from a tent at a couple of farmers markets. (I'm making $1,000 a day on that alone. Grueling hard work though.) This is what I've got:

    The location: I've got a booth/tent setup for the rest of the year at a busy farmers market.

    Customers: at least 200 people are already buying something from me a day. (Who will be back the next week looking for more.)

    The incentive: I sell a $4 bag of kettle corn that costs me .40 cents to make. I'm willing to give away my product for "free" if someone does/fills out something at a CPA network.

    I'm already signed up at a couple of CPA networks.

    You guys have any suggestions on what sort of program I should send my customers to get get/qualify for a free bag of kettle corn? How would you go about doing this?

    I'm assuming I could attach a business card with a web address to every bag I sell. They take it home and fill out whatever offer at their computer. (thus, I'm not driving traffic from a single IP) Once they've filled out what ever offer, they remember something about an offer page and email me with the results. I give them the free bag when they come back next week.

    Someone mentioned doing a contest on another thread. I was just going to have them fill out a gift card offer or something. What do you think?

    Is all that worth it for them to get a $4 bag of kettle corn? I mean, they go home, fill it out online, then email you to prove they did it etc? Also, since you are doing an incentive, what kind of free incentive offer can you promote and what is the payout on such an offer? Free incentive offers usually offer very low payout from what I remember.

    If you wanted a fully legit solution you could go get a ton of cheap business cards from VistaPrint, get some catchy phrases on it and add a referral link to a site like CashCrate. Just get a little display where they can grab a card if they want to. Sure CashCrate is craptastic if you don't have a way to get referrals but you get $1 per active referral after the first 50. You could put something on the business card along the lines of, "Share the wealth and pass this card onto a friend."

    On a sidenote: That's a ton of kettlecorn.

    Why don't you bring a laptop with a wireless internet connection to your booth and have the customers/referrals sign up in person for their instant free kernel corn? As someone in that other thread suggested, first let your affiliate manager know a little about how you plan to market their offers and that the leads/traffic will all come from the same ip address. Get the agreement in a fax or email so you won't get banned for filling out your own offers then proceed from there.

    Dude! sign up for CPAbullet they allow people to sell CPA stuff at kiosk in the malls. This is perfect for your situation I think. Just check with them to see if they allow you to do it in the farmers market. Just don't mention the incentives.

    Is that a legit site and CPA network? They have generic lorem ipsum filler text that comes with template sites on one of their pages and at least one of their links doesn't work.

    Personally I would stick to selling the bags for $4... Most incentive offers, especially the email submits or the 2 page form fills pay between $0.50 and $2.00... So you will be losing out on money.

    Donno...I signed up with them but my application was denied. Hopefully, you'll have some luck. Didn't receive any phone call or anything at all.

    It's a farmers market, so it's in the middle of a parking lot next to a church. Doubt there's a wifi connection out other.


    I know that. I'm thinking along the lines of "fill out these THREE offers and get a free bag."

    Or maybe "get a bag at half price if you fill out these offers"

    Code:

    This sounds interesting. I'll check it out.

    The other thing is my customers are so loyal to me, they'd willing give me their email to keep up to date with their "kettle corn drug source."

    Just have them print the confirmation/second page and bring them in. That cuts down on their time of having to email you and then you don't have to keep accurate records. Just change the offer each week so that it's only valid for a certain week so they can't print a bunch of copies.

    You can find free dating profile offers for $5. Just incentivize it with them and let your AM know you're going to be distributing a ton of business cards in your area. Tell them the cards are highly targeted to people that WANT or NEED to sign up and get a date. You conversion rates won't be questioned then.
