    This is untested method and i have not made any money off it. It is just an idea , but i cant see why it would not make you $$$ per day on complete auto-pilot.


    I thought of this method today in the petrol station and i thought this is something that can be shared with a lot of people because it is virtually unsaturable. Its quite cool how after you have been doing IM for a while , you will start seeing everything around with a different perspective. "How to make money off this " perspective :p

    Ok what you will promote are CPA offers that give a customer a chance to win gas vouchers. I checked around networks and it seems that there are at least 40-50 different offers for that. Best way of finding out is :
    Code:
    http://www.offervault.com/
    . Go there , register (it is free) and what it basically does is allows you to search for CPA offers around all the networks for a particular keyword. So our keyword is "gas". Type it in and you will see that there are 69 offers related to that. There are loads of email submit and Zip submit offers that pay anywhere up to $2 per page.

    So this is what you do.
    Step 1:You will design and print out leaflets that says " Win $250 worth of gas voucher. Simply go to gascpaoffer. com and enter your postcode/email.

    Step 2:Go to your petrol stations and speak to the person who is on the counter or even the manager. Explain who you are and what you do. Explain how you get paid. And make this offer. That you will pay them lets say $0.5 for every person who will visit the site and complete the offer. If he/she agrees then give them the leaflets and they will start handing out them to people who will buy petrol from them. Maybe even give them a script of what they have to say . Something like that should work well : We are running a promotion where you could win a $250 gas voucher simply by entering your zip code. Would you be interested in something like that? " The reason for that is that you dont want them to waste leaflets on people who are interested.That way the leaflets will be received only by those who are interested.

    That is pretty much it. Times are tough and everyone is desperate for money, so many people will take every opportunity to get stuff for free. So these kind of offers are converting extremely well at the moment.
    Repeat this with as many stations you want. The way i see it you should not have a problem with getting a lot of people on board. Its very easy to scale up and once set up , its basically automated.

    Alternatively you could just stand in front of the station and give leaflets to people yourself.

    Some tips that should make it work even better.

    1. Get a geotargeted domain. So not just getgasvoucher.c0m but a dallas.getgasvoucher.c0m
    2. On the leaflet you can says , for a higher chance of winning sign up with these sites as well, and include 2 other offers on it. That way one leaflet could get you potentially 3 signups and lets say each is paying $1.50 per email/survey/zip submit. That would make you $4.50 per person. Which is $2.50 for you.
    3. This is blackhat: To increase your chances of winning ,email all your friends and increase your chances by 350%. More people you refer ,higher are you chances. Tell them that offer is tracked to them , so that way you can see who has signed up under them.

    I am based in UK and i did not manage to find a similar offer for UK. They tend to be US and Canada offers. That is a real shame, since i would love to use it. I am planning to visit US in the end of the summer, so i will try to set up something like that there.
    If you are from UK and have seen offers like that , then would be great if you could PM me. Or if that inspires you or you come up with methods how to twist it, then would also be great if you could PM me or post in this thread.

    Anyways i will wrap it up and wish you luck.
    Regards,

    I'm going to do this, tomorrow. No joke. I'm going to go to my three nearest gas stations, 2 are within walking distance, one is like 4 train stops away. Going to ask for the manager for a business proposal tell him I'll give him 75cents for each customer at the gas station who goes to my website and enters their email. For now I'm just going to ask if I can hang flyers around so I'll print out like 6 of them and tape 1 at every pump. But once I have some money around I'll have like leaflets people can take (or cheaper, business cards - check vistaprint), good because people won't have to memorize the address. The 6 flyers will do for now though.

    Each gas station will have its own url for easy tracking.

    Legit doing this tomorrow. Thanks!

    Here is another strategy for making more money and wasting less supplies. I am not positive what a leaflet is but you can print out an ad on a piece of regular paper saying "Want $250 worth of gas for free? Enter to win your free gas today!" and then on the same side but sideways going down type the url multiple times with "Win Free Gas" above it. Then just slice the paper between each url + quote and let them tear them off when needed. This will make sure that only people who want them will rip them off. Might make it more of a guaranteed commision.

    dude... the guys in the gas stations don't even go outside and look at the pumps... just walk around putting them up and if there is someone filling gas just say excuse me I'm just putting up a few ads for the manager you should check them out... tape up 10 at each pump lol

    Awesome idea, but how will the gas station manager going to track the signups? or this is just pure blackness and you are never going to give the gas station their share of the earnings?

    give the fliers or leaflets to a homeless person or a bum that always hang around there and give him free liquor for passing them out.

    Get him laid.

    This is a pretty good offline catch and works with a lot of sources.

    Such as winning free pizza and tipping the pizza guy an extra $10 to hand them out with every pizza.

    You could probably even pay a mailman off to put a pamphlet in people's mailboxes.. who cares if it's legal/spam or not.. show him some green, and I guarantee he does it.

    Offline marketing is golden.

    This is a really good technique, you just need to put some work into it and it should be able to work with a lot of other stuff too if you think outside the box. Just go to places where people are in need of stuff like these places:

    You can go to all the laundry mats in town and hang up fliers saying something like "win a free washer and dryer" or "free detergent for a year" and than stick you cpa offer in.

    You can also go to all the local cheapest grocery stores like family dollar and hang up fliers saying for free groceries or some type of related cpa offer for cheap food or free food.

    You can even go to all those churches that offer help to people in need and hang up fliers around there.

    You get the idea... You can tag up your whole town with all types of offers if you go to the right places.

    Nice little method you thought up there enrikole. The market for this type of thing is limitless. I can't think of many gas station managers/owners that wouldn't put these on their counters for a chance to make a little extra cash. Especially all the foreign run gas stations that are not part of a big chain. Gas stations get a ton of traffic daily and if you get in even just 25 locations in your city, you're going to get daily conversions.

    Another thing that you could do is put the current month on your flyers. So it would say something like "April Gas Giveaway". This way, you can make new ones each month and just change the offer you're promoting so regular customers to the gas station can take a new flyer each month and they don't feel like they are limited to the deal one time.

    Don't forget to talk to your AM first. If you get 100% of your leads coming from the same small geo area they may think you're doing some kind of tricky craigslist (because its local areas) spamming etc. Let them know whats going on first or at least come up with a story.

    I'd be really interested to see how this idea works out for some people. If anyone tries it out, please post your results here.

    The foreign gas station workers are the guys i thought of at first. They are not part of big chains, so they can easily make the decisions with out being afraid of corporate guys coming down on them.
    I like the current month offer.That should increase the offers.

    Another tip is to say on the flyer win $100 and the cross it out and make it say win $250 - limited time offer.
    And another one is to say "only 89 left" then cross it out and say "67" left etc. <Both of these should add urgency.

    I have been in marketing for a LOOOONG time and personally studied with a few of the big named marketing teachers.

    We tried something like this about 15 years ago and one guy went to an airline company(can't remember which one) and asked them to put a small add on the back of their boarding cards.

    Long story short they told him they would test it for a month for free and they wanted a rev share only.

    Their months boarding passes was about 4 million at the time per month and he made a killing.

    In fact he went on nd built a biz around it and sold it for a 'decent' amount about 3 years later.

    The thing is, this is even easier now.

    So get off your arses and do it.

    oscar....

    ps

    I do do some of this just now so I can say that, only thing is , even tho I know how good this is, I don't do enough of it

    Imagine if you would get a like a big chain on board. And they would agree to do it with all their stations. I can imagine, you would cash in pretty well. Then hire few people to take care of distribution , another one take care off accounts and then just leave it running all by it self.

    I know a lot of pubs tills can be auto updated thru modem

    so.......

    getting a deal with the maintainer/customer could probably mean having them load your ads onto the till receipts automatically, taking care of the people required to deliver the leaflets AND get a few chains who are selling beer at the rate of say 100 drinks a minute every minute they are open and you can imagine the numbers

    I totally agree, once you start thinking in a money making mindset, you are amazed how you look at everything and think how can I make money off of this? There is so much focus on online marketing that so many people forget there is a lot to be made using offline techniques too. Great share!
