    Well I've got the concept down, I did it back in the day, but then fell off the face of the planet for a couple years.

    The community I live in is a small island, with tons of tourists, and lots of retired old people. Also, there is a huge hippy group of people.

    I've thought of doing some travel offers, health offers, shopping offers, job offers etc.

    My method of distribution will be flyers in busy parking lots, small signs at busy intersections, at the employment office (for job offers), etc. Do you have any other effective modes of distribution that I've not yet thought of (I'm at a writers block in terms of marketing and thinking outside the box, I've lost touch with my inner IM/OM beast)


    I need some help thinking outside the box here, or a push in the right direction again. I used to do just flyers and made a nice chunk of change daily, but need something fresh.


    Lets give this discussion a shot.

    For more bang for your buck you're better off going to businesses that directly service the tourists and others on that island and doing a JV with them.... let them know you can help with boosting business and revenue by letting say a restaurant hand out small flyers (or business cards) with your CPA offer on it. That way you cut down on your effort and let others do the work for you, cut them part of your earnings.

    Hit up beauty salons, restaurants, spa's, etc... anyone that comes in contact with a steady stream of customers (tourists) and get a CPA offer that pays decent. Works like a charm because everyone wants more revenue for their biz.:D

    Looking down at the top of your mom's head
    diet offers on restaurant menus. "Did you eat to much, check out 2fatdotcom or something (redirect to free trial offer)

    the old netflix offer on pizza box JV with local pizza shop (classic)

    Never underestimate the free diabetes meters (trust me I know), you can offer a free guide (make a five page leaflet) and put in docs offices that pimps the docs office you are in (makes the docs happy) and also has a free diabetes meter coupon code which is your url that just redirects to liberty medical or whatever.

    grocery store warfare- this is one of my classics
    go to magazines in the store and stuff fliers in all of them especially the health ones that match your offer, no one sees you do it, and people will be like "hmmmm wtf is this.. " same with the books section and greeting cards as long as its relevant.

    and if your flier is good you get some action

    thats all I can think of now.

    Thats not bad, see, you've got my "thinking outside the box" motor crankin up again, i lost it for a while.

    The doctors office is a great start, we have tons of health fitness places, TONS of "Emergency care" places. Also, we have tons of spas, restaurants, all due to the high influx of tourists we get. This little town could turn out to be quite profitable with the proper research.

    I have an idea brewin now, I'm going to work on it and post the method here after trial. It should be interesting.


    More ideas are welcome here - could really get a lot of peoples brains movin!

    I've thought of doing this but i am going to be offering ringtones through a phone survey. I send the link for the offer directly to their phone and complete the offer. i figure they may be less likely to read the terms. And since they opt -in its all legit.

    I've been hearing about SMS marketing, is there some type of tool similar to the bluetooth marketing broadcaster for SMS? Or are you just buying cell # lists?

    I could think of a hundred things to market to mass cell phone users.

    I'm getting cards printed now and my twist is to list both my website and text message option for walmart giftcard. I figure everyone has cell these days so here's my method.

    I have them text "1000walmart" to "DOTNET" (368638) telling them to follow directions first being confirm their email, that way I get them on my list so I can continue to email them more CPA offers.

    Then I set the AW AR to redirect to CPA offer page and surprisingly it shows the email submit only on my cell phone so I really think this will get me a lot of conversions.

    My biggest problem I have is I really don't want to do the legwork so if anyone has any ideas please let me know.

    PM me if you want more exact way of this method as it is pretty easy to setup. There is really very little costs, domain, hosting, AR account, mobile site (free but can use paid to save phone #'s which I will probably do but not necessary)

    Thats not bad at all. though the amount of actual leg work required its better to get a better paying offer for ringtones

    I've heard you can make bank on youtube with ringtones. Go to onlylyrics and pick out the top new releases then go to youtube and do a search to see if anyone has uploaded any videos.

    If you find little exact word competition, grab a video then reload it on your account then add a caption with your CPA ringtone url.

    Go to fiverr and get some views and comments to make it appear popular.
