    Hello everyone!

    First; just want to say thanks for having me on BHW. I honestly absolutely love this place.

    Because I do, I wanted to share one of my favorite methods for making money online.

    Now, this isn't so much Internet Marketing (although it certainly can be), but is an online based business model that many of you can use to make extra money.

    What you're doing is creating a "Flyer Distribution" business online.

    I've discussed this somewhat in a prior thread where I talked about a way to make extra money on Fiverr with this. But Fiverr is just one platform to sell your services.

    Okay, so here's the basic model: You're going to advertise flyer distribution services for businesses, music artists, events, religious causes, who the fuck ever really. You set your prices beforehand obviously and differentiate between if the customer wants the flyers distributed AND printed? Or just distributed? Will they upload it to you or ship to you? Write down all the prices for what you'll charge for that.

    I live in America and work with the American Dollar, so with that said, I usually charge 2:1 either way honestly (unless for small orders). So for example, if a customer orders say 1000 flyers to be distributed, I would charge $500 for the order.

    "BUT NHN ARE YOU KIDDING ME? THIS SUCKS, I DON'T WANT TO DISTRIBUTE FUCKING FLYERS! THIS ISNT PASSIVE OR AUTOMATED!"

    Yeah, no shit, neither do I. And I don't.

    So here's where a little creativity and just general internet savvy come into play.

    I advertise my services a number of ways and one of the 'perks' is that I can essentially advertise anywhere.

    One day, I got an order, for exactly 1000 flyers to be distributed in Chicago. Order was $500 (why I mentioned it above lol). Now, I don't live anywhere near Chicago. Tragic. So what you do is simply throw up a few CL ads in Gigs in the Chicago area for someone to distribute flyers. LOL. Simple and stupid, but works. You put the ad up "Need someone to distribute flyers, need photo proof of completed work, you get paid once you send photo proof of completed work, blahblah). You put the gig up for $50-$100, your preference really. And sure as shit, you'll get plenty of hitups. They'll send you photo proof of completed work (usually ask for like 10 pics, maybe 20) and send that to the buyer. Buyer is satisfied and (in my case) comes back for another order. Now, in that first order, the order was for $500 and I paid the distributor $100, so my profit was $400 for doing next to nothing.

    So, in short, you're advertising flyer distribution services and then (very easily) outsourcing the work. You're essentially sending a few emails and there is next to no work or skill really needed to it. It's a great newbie method and it's honestly one of my better income streams. I promote my services on Fiverr and Craigslist only, by the way, but I would imagine with a few more twists I could easily get more clientele. I just don't need to and don't want to, it's just one of my many deals. But you could perhaps make a small website for the business? Social Media? There's a million ways you can promote your services and/or add another spin to it to gain more clientele.

    Anyways, thanks for reading! I hope this helps a newbie or someone earn some more money and perhaps even start a little business out of it. It certainly can be done and to this day makes me a sizeable income. Please feel free to ask any questions and don't forget to like, share, and subscribe lolz no but really thanks again for reading!

    Very cool method to hustle some cash. Imagine if you were a bit more active with your marketing, like emailing companies or contacting them on their website contact form. You could probably do actually really well doing this.

    Exactly this. I can only imagine what kind of business I'd be doing if I took this up a notch. Like I said, utilizing a website, social media, emailing companies/contacting them, etc it can all lead to even more business. I don't do any of that and I still make a very good part time income off the business. But yeah, this can certainly have some twists added on and some more effort/different marketing to turn it into a full time hustle.

    Not sure why you can charge that much for damn flyers in the US. I live in west europe and I used to do some flyers as teenager and got like 10-15 cents/flyer
    That would've been 100-150$ tops for 1k

    And how exactly would I even go about finding places that want flyers put up? Any websites or anything I should look out for?

    Exactly that last part my friend. This model can obviously be applied to a million different types of businesses.

    You should man, it's easy and makes pretty good money!

    You severely undersold your services my dude. And I understand different currencies and whatnot, but you can also distribute anywhere via this model. Even in the U.S! ;)

    I use Fiverr and Craigslist honestly. And I get plenty of business between both. You can certainly (as mentioned) email businesses, post in other classified websites your services, UpWork, Freelancer, a million other ways to sell your services. Just gotta get creative my dude.

    If only this was possible in my country. I'd definitely try this out. 1000 flyers + distribution = $30~$50 USD all in all. 3rd World Problems. :(

    Thats pretty fucking creative. How are you accepting payments? paypal? - are you hosting your own website?

    Again, Very nice my friend. I hope youre killing it.

    I think you're all kinda missing the part of this where you can do it no matter where you live. I've distributed flyers in the UK, among other countries, and I don't live there. That's the beauty of the internet -- if any of you guys can write/speak freaking English, you're pretty much good to go. Just advertise your services on U.S classified sites/forums/fiverr and subcontract out virtually the same way. Or you can make a website and subcontract out. Either way, you definitely can do this and anyone can do this from anywhere. That's the beauty of it.

    Hell yeah my dude, that's what's up!


    Thanks my dude! I like to think that I myself am pretty fucking creative lol. I have many income streams and almost all of them (particularly the successful ones) came from some serious creative thinking, which of course is a foundation for any successful venture.

    And yeah, I accept payments via PayPal (and orders through Fiverr which pays via PayPal of course). I'm not hosting my own website at all, although if I were, and if I put more into it, I'm sure I could make way more money. But no, I did it the no-cost way so to speak, and didn't make a website. For anyone looking to turn this into a legit business, I would def recommend a website/social media/etc as it'll help get sales. Because this is on the lower-end of my income totem pole, I don't really put much into it anymore and I get orders on Fiverr/responses to ads all the time. That's what I'm trying to tell you guys too -- put next to no effort into this and I make probably an extra $100-$200/week on average. Some weeks are more, never less than $100/week though. Which again tells you that if you make a website, put some effort, actually give a fuck, etc you'll probably make good money if not a full time income.

    So do you require your distributer to take pics of every place they put the flyers? How do you know for sure they distributed all of them? I mean, they could just take 10 pics in 10 different places where they put 1 flyer each and then just trash the rest.
