    So after about two days of searching for ways to make some cash online, I came across BHW. (Tired of busting my *** every weekend for $20)

    After scouring the forums for hours today I decided I could make a decent amount of cash doing some offline CPA-ing, and then if it is successful move onto bigger things. I'm fortunate enough to have two grocery stores (One being Wal-Mart :D), three gas stations, a health food store, a mall, and a load of restaurants, all within walking and bike distance.

    If I make separate flyers for each place I would drop them off at or on cars and target the ads that I inlcude based on the people that are there, I am optimistic I can turn some good profit.

    For example the ads that would be included on the seperate flyers could be something like this-

    Cigarette ads for the Gas Stations
    Gift Cards, Coupon offers, for Wally Mart
    Health related ads, fitness, for the Health Food store
    Gift Cards, Fitness, for the fastfood places in my area like McDonalds lol
    And maybe some style or electronic ones for the mall.

    If it is really successful maybe even an ad in the News Paper!

    Now here is some questions regarding CPA's.
    Do all of the major CPA companies accept PayPal? I do not have access to a bank account or anything. I'm not sure with how the payment methods work.

    I saw a sticky about that you do not need a website when signing up.
    (Can't post links yet but it was Pofecker's thread)

    I honestly do not care about talking to an AM after submitting an application, I'm good at talking ;), just the whole website thing just seems WAY to complicated for my noob self.

    If everything goes planned I will start signing up for a CPA tomorrow. How many would you guys suggest getting accepted into before I start making any flyers?

    After reading through some threads about doing things offline and distributing flyers many people reccomended getting a website set up because it would get more people to convert or something. (I can't remember lol too late)

    Would setting up like a free blog help?

    Well that's it for questions. Any tips or help is greatly appreciated, so is a list of good CPA companies :p. I'll keep you guys posted on what I make if I decide to go through with this. Seeing some other peoples success at doing this stuff offline has gotton me very optimistic.

    I am proud to be part of the BHW community. :D

    Seems like you got a good plan.

    There are some CPA that accept without website. Just make sure when signing up to let them know you will promote offline.

    Almost all companies send check for payment.

    Keep us updated.

    If you have someone that is trustworthy, you could hire them to pass out flyers for you.

    Ya I might do that. There's a lot of people that will post flyers on fiverr. I found a featured seller that will put up a flyer on each gas pump at 50 different gas stations. Nearly 200 flyers for 5$, no printing or anything done on my part. Pretty good deal if you ask me.

    I will be experimenting many different ways in the coming weeks. (Business cards, bulletin board, fiverr :)....)

    Offline works, but it is a NUMBERS game!

    You need to hit the streets with a ton of fliers to truly judge a campaign.

    Best of luck!
