    I don't read this part of BHW usually so forgive me if this method has been stated before or if you think it is complete crap.

    I used to make a decent amount of money with adsense for domains but that no longer exist.

    I am considering getting back into the domain parking game so here is what i was thinking...
    -set up a domain with a domain parking site and advertise the domain through flyers. You could go to popular events (concerts, sporting events) and pass out flyers or put flyers on car windshields. For example, one could go to a New York Yankees game and pass out flyers for the site yankeesfannewyork.com (that is not my domain and it is available if you want it, lol). You could motivate them even more to go to the site by saying that if they go to it, they could get something free (you can be creative here). Once they get to the site they will see the ads and a good amount of the people will click the ads. Lets say that you are able to give out 3,000 flyers at a game, if 1,250 go to the site, that could end up being some decent money.


    Another note, I read on another thread that drives traffic to parked somains through pictures that the best way to stay ok with the domain parking site that you use, is to have multiple domains registered with them. Don't just register one and have it sit a few days and then all of a sudden slam it with thousands of views.

    I am going to try this soon. Hopefully I might have motivated someone else to try something similar out. Good luck.

    You could also try this method with a landing page and with a CPA offer.

    Flyering parked domains?
    If you are going to go to the cost and hassle of flyering, you want a better payout than a few .c ad click!

    The hassle is too much otherwise not a bad idea considering most of the traffic would be type-in :)

    Yea, you're most likely right, but I live near a big stadium so I might try it out. You could probably make a few hundred easily, although, it might be even better to find a good cpa offer.

    Count with from those 3000 flyers 300 people actually go to the site and at the max 100 will click the ads, if each ad gives you 1$, you may be able to do some, but remember about the cost of the flyers and all the time it took you to do this...

    Am also into domain parking a little bit.
    You plan is reasonable though, but if you gonna put such energy in promotion, let it be a complete website instead of a parked domain that ll give you only few cents per click.

    Thats an even better thought. Considering the effort you want to put it, the return should be considerable too, not just remaining cents after more than half is kept by big daddy (parking company).

    "pass out flyers or put flyers on car windshields"... are you insane man.

    Internet marketers don't put flyers on cars or give handouts to people.

    This might not be a bad idea. I have seen some fivr gigs where people would distribute flyers around their neighborhood. If you could make more on the clicks then what you spend then you will be golden.

    HAS EVERYONE GONE MAD!
    Lets take a poll from reputable marketers.
    Who here would want to go hand out flyers?

    The best thing you have going for yourself is time. How you manage your time will determine how much money you make.
    If you want to make $20.00 and waist hours handing out flyers, then knock yourself out.

    I don't think people have gone mad at all. Really, tell me, what's SO WRONG about doing offline marketing with flyers? So what if it doesn't meet up to your standards, if it is marketing, it's marketing. There's nothing wrong with advertising physically. People post up ads on light poles, street lights, doorknobs, etc all the time! You name it!

    I don't think a huge criticism over handling out flyers is necessary. Rather, you can give you input why you think it's not effective than stating people are INSANE to think about this method. If this is for the insane, I guess most salesman are too right?


    For future references, "waist hours" is not grammatically correct. Waist is a region of a body. You mean "waste hours."

    Good luck!

    flyers don't work. trust me. i know from experience.

    used to throw huge parties. we would go flyer everywhere there was parties. probably passed out 10,000. the rate of return (or even hits onto the website that was listed large) plus giving the people who went from the flyer a huge discount was so low it wasn't even worth it. hell we got higher roi from facebook ads.

    it's not worth the time or energy - you will be excited to do it the first time, but afterward you'll see the return isn't what you think.

    If you could find a CPA offer or something equivalent and made a content lock or just plain ol email submit CPA form on a website that would be easy to promote. Imagine going to a Yankees game and handing out or placing somewhere fliers for free Yankees stuff. Chance to win season tickets. Memorabilia. Anything. The fans there will go to it, and if all you need is email submits you would profit some. Would it take work? Sure. Get a friend or friends to help though and offer them either money to help or a % of your money made.

    Handing out flyers is something you do in high school or maybe college. It is not worth my time for such little rewards.
    There are many ways of marketing on the internet to make money. I believe that the longer you do marketing online, the better you get.
    Handing out flyers is like taking 4 steps back in your online marketing career. I have over 10+ years of marketing experience and would not advise someone to hand our flyers.

    If an experienced marketer thinks I am wrong, please come out and say so, but I am willing to bet that 99% of them would agree with me.

    3000 flyers and 1000 will visit the site - not sure what type of business are you in, but unless you give them free beer that is a stupid thing to say.

    lets say 300 go to the website - unlikely but anyway.... 10% is a stretch...

    out of those anothe 10% click the $2 adsense link - 60 bucks...

    --------------

    then you paid how many hours to someone to distribute the flyers, how much did they cost you...?

    fail

    Many people on this forum are newbies and on a limited budget. . It all depends upon determination and efforts. If they go out and do this and see the small amount of money they receive then it would be an aspiration for them to work harder online.

    But if they make money by giving away flyers then let it be. Who know what they learn by doing this. Every coin has two sides :D
