    the card looks like this:
    Matt G
    His URL

    It's large white letters on a black card.

    It goes to a simple optimize press capture page with him talking. He manages a retail store and hands them out to customers. Since he tells him in the video to opt in after talking to him in the store, his card to lead conversion is 87%

    Makes you wonder how opt-outs affect his store sales.

    That's a great idea, especially with the card. Why go for anything fancy or have additional information? Name, URL. I like that. Nothing else for the customer to do but visit the website. And the fact that it is such an uncommon card probably increases curiosity, which only makes them that much more likely to visit the site to see what it's about. I guess simplicity can go a long way.

    That is pretty cool, but may I ask what is he doing with those optins?
    Is he using them for store marketing or sending them his own offers?
    Will he not get into trouble for promoting his business at someone else's store?
    Neat marketing anyways.

    I would recommend using this method, by dressing very sharp, and going down to your local busy mall. Pretend to be a member of staff, and just ask anyone if you can help them, for those people that you do help, give them a card, and a pitch. They will think you own the place.

    We can print your cards on high quality paper at low prices and also help set up your opt-in page if needed. ;)

    He went to vista print and got the cheap cards made, signed up for an offer that pays well and started handing them out

    His website name is makemoneywithmattg so from the short little pitch he gives and the url on the card, they are primed for exactly what they are being offered. his pitch follows the motto be brief, be excellent, and be gone.

    it forwards to a sales page with a high paying offer.

    If he was caught, he'd probably get in trouble

    I'm not sure if he'd get into trouble. But why don't you take a picture of the card and post it up?

    He'd bank a lot more getting those leads to sign up to his email list instead completing offers. He's not building his list but the list of someone else. Everyone knows the money is in the list.

    EDIT: Oh I just caught he's an employee. Yeah I'm sure the business owner would have his ass for this. Hard to trust employees these days and people wonder why unemployment keeps rising.

    It is building his list. It's an optimize press cp that puts leads in his awebr. when they optin, they see a sales video for a system

    I can do that but I don't have one on me. It looks pretty much exactly like the diagram I made at the top. He builds rapport and gives his brief pitch about making some extra money, and hands out a card that has his name and the url MakeMoneyWithMattG below it. You can look at that page but basically if you were curious enough to put that web address in, you would see the guy that gave you the card telling you to opt in.

    He doesn't give his phone number so no questions can be asked

    There are some NLP facts, stats, and research behind the name "Matt G" Don't be one of those newbies that wants to reinvent the wheel, just change your name and follow the damn directions.

    Bet you can increase conversion by using letterpress cards.
