    Hey guys,

    Some of you know me, some don't. One year ago or so I was a jr.vip here and many of you know that I used to bank really good by combining CPA offers with craigslist. However posting on craigslist and getting decent results went downhill in the past few months and I head to reorientate myself onto other methods. Here is a quick brainstorm I made for an offline method. This may have been posted before but slightly different, this is my personal twist, here it goes.

    1.
    - You need to look for e-mail submit offers or the so called "free offers". A few good ones are the e-mail offers which offer free vouchers (eg. "$100 home depot voucher", "$500 victoria secret voucher", "$100 pizza hut voucher").
    2.
    - What you need to do is to print a few flyers that contain links to your offers. On these flyers you should write something like "Get a free $100 gift card for your next visit here: link".
    3.
    - You will hand these flyers near targeted areas, depending on your offer. You will stick by the exit of home depot stores, pizza hut restaurants or anywhere near them. Super targeted!

    If you don't like handing flyers by your own you can outsource this step, just pay a kid a 2-3 bucks / hour and he will be more than satisfied to do the job for you.

    People will sign up like their life will depend on this because of two aspects:
    - It looks like a serious offer - the flyer thing makes it personal and they trust the offer more than if they would have discovered it online.
    - They have nothing to lose.

    I hope you enjoyed my little idea, cheers! :nemoflow:

    You can buy a dot com and redirect it to the affiliate link. You can even blank the referrer. Eaaaasy.

    You are aware this is highly illegal right? lol.. like $1000s of dollars in fines. Otherwise alot of people would go to the actual email submit offers homes, such as best buy, target, walmart, home depot, victoria's secret, burger king, etc etc and do this all the time for EASY money. Not worth the amount of trouble you can get into for soliciting like this though..

    Why would we thank the op for his "idea" ... this isnt a method that he's even done.
    Plus, its already been shared numerous times on this forum.

    I have read where others have successfully done this but they put the flyers on the cars in the parking lot.

    Not to be a method basher but I have done this before and here are my results

    1.) you get about 15minutes before they kick you off their property. Longer if you hit the parking lots.
    2.) No kid is going to work for $3/hour. Thats just crazy.
    3.) Even with a nice color flyer, they didnt convert like u say/would think they do.
    4.) It sucks ass and feels degrading walking around parking lots putting fliers on windshields.
    5.) I made $17 and spent $25ish and about 9 hours of my time.
    6.) if someone can show me how to post to CL I would pay them $$$ I constantly get flagged and removed in minutes.

    Most metro areas have flyer distribution services where one can outsource the effort to, and who will efficiently blanket the neighborhoods of your choice with the flyers. Takes care of the legalities, the low pay, the social awkwardness, etc. of the whole effort.

    thx for share, simple idea that should work but many times does not.

    I had a half page flyer designed by a marketing graphics professional (30 years experience ), printed and had my step son put on windshields of local home depot, fluyers where specialized for the location. It had a redirect to a home depot card email offer.

    Two parking lots maybe 300 cars each. Conversion 0%. Not a single conversion. My cost about $30, ink, gas, design + my time. Also did the same thing with safeway and groceries. Still same, no Conversions.

    I even tried even gas card offer (ZIP). Placed small (business card size) on the counter and on the pumps in the Gas Station. Result: 0% conversions.

    Than created simple landing page ( no iframe/sliced ) placed ads on CL selling home depot gift cards, with direct link to landing page and another trial was replying via email (too much work without auto responder). Made about $120, Cost $0.00 + my time.
    go figure.

    Honestly best way I noticed offline to online is pure self interest and greed. Simply give an honest incentive. " Hey fill this out and get $$"

    I guess I suck at offline :-(.
