    HI All

    Just wanted to let you guys know about a method I have been using for about 12 months. This is not black hat, just good sense.

    Approach your local newspaper and ask if they wil run a competition where there readers will win a free website. (newspapers love offering their readers competitions to enter). I have 5 local newspapers where I live and 4 out of the 5 accept this offer every time I run it usually once every 8-12 weeks.

    The newspaper person will take some details and you give them some ideas of copy such as "we have been making money for local business for the last 3 years etc etc.

    All you need to do is ask the newspaper to send all competition entrys to you once they have selected the winner ( they do this cause they know you want the leads)

    Now all you have to do is wait for the entrys to come in, ring them all sating they didnt win the prize but you are offering all entrants a half price website. Now all these people wanted a website in the first place (except the odd one or two who will apply for any competition), just tell them that it is a deal they had with the newspaper that all entries will get at least 50% off. We all know that we can charge what we want for making websites etc. so charge them what you want.

    I have ran this offer 5 times in 4 papers ie 20 individual ads. On average i get 48 responses including name, address, telephone number, and email address and I will convert 6 of these to paying business. On top of that i will use the 40 odd or so contact details i get and pay my little bro £10 to fill out cps offers with their details. I cover my tracks by telling my CPA network I am doing some sort of real world marketing event where the entrants will fill out details using a laptop to explain the same IP.(never had a problem with this. just make sure you tell them first!!!!)

    Hope this helps some of you guys make a buck or two. If you find it use full give us a thanks

    And you did this in UK? I am suprised. I can find offline marketing very hard here - it's almost impossible! Kudos. Just curious, was is strictly local newspapers, or did you do county ones as well?

    yes just local newspapers, im based in the midlands and we have a few free papers, these are the best and easiest to get accepted by and a couple of regional, not county wide though, when the newspaper asks you for images etc just use SE logos, seem to get a better response
