    I just had a thought, maybe stupid, but as i am not familliar with cpa offers dont know how this could work.

    Walking at fairs, or even the mall you always see companies set up registrations to win something. basically paper lead generation.

    If you set up a computer and had people fill out a cpa to register to win an ipod or Grill or something like that [depending on your cpa] you could pay someone minimum wage to sit there and mind your computer.

    If you get in the right situation you could get a good bit of registrants.
    problems would be filling out info for the giveaway, and for the offer. I guess setting up through iframe would work.

    And you would have to use incentivised offers for you giveaway.

    What are your thoughts?

    besides Im crazy [I already know that]

    Sounds great if you can actually trick people into signing up. To make it worth the cost you'd have to sign up like a hundred people a day minimum though, ya?

    The only problem i can see with this is that this would all be generated all by the same computers...Only way around this is you would have to set something up with your CPA network and get permission or something...or it would just look like your filling in your own ads

    Its actually a pretty good idea. But he's right you'll have to get permission from the CPA network for it to work. Not to mention the mall itself in order to set up shop.

    Now that's thinking outside the box. But if you're at the mall and you've got you're little booth set up, wouldn't you have to pay rent or something?

    You could even promote ringtones pretty well if you're next to a cell phone junk booth. It's an idea.

    Not a bad idea.... but yeah, same computer, same (or similar) IPs could be a problem.

    Auto-rotating socks5 proxies after every participant completes form, maybe vmware to setup a few different os's on one box to keep the volume going, relevant cpa offers to what you giving away(free ipod, iphone, etc) and get them to crank through those forms bc yeah you are going to need a few hundred people per day to make a setup like that worth it. Keen idea though, I like the creativity :)

    Since it's not really anything blackhat, why not just contact your affiliate mangager and tell them what you're doing? If they don't believe you, just go to a different network...or you can go ahead and set it up and take a pic of the setup and show it to them.

    Arguably this is just as if not more effective than sites like cashcrate.com. I think a site like Incentaclick would have no issue with you running a promo like this.

    I would have a ton of offers to choose from so you can have the person pick something they are generally interested in like a trial of some sort.

    Yes, this is exactly what I would do as well. What might really make it worthwhile if you were going to go to the trouble of having a kiosk and an employee, would be to negotiate deals with the companies themselves rather than the middle men at the affiliate networks.

    Some wisdom in those words...It wouldn't take much time for you to prove to them that these are good leads. As a percentage probably better than what the CPAs give them. A "live" lead like this would be more willing to follow through on the offer b/c its more of a real experience to them than a quick visit to a website. Your quality score would be through the roof with mall people, esp. with things like ringtones, seasonals, etc...

    This is a great idea for European countries though. We have a lot of fares and all kinds of markets where a stand costs maybe 50 dollars a day. You can even stand there yourself.

    I would suggest adding in something that will attract people though. Like you fill a big glass bottle with marbles or other small items. Then you have people guess how many there are in there. Then you set up a simple page with a submit form for the amount they are guessing. This page sends them to the offer where they have to put in their details to get the item sent to them. All of this free ofcourse.

    Thanks for the input,

    If I was a network i would want these kind of leads. I would be surprised if they would not allow it.

    I was thinking of setting up at what we call flea markets here, where a stand is $5-$10 a day. We have a carnival here, that gets enough people to it to sell enough tickets to give away a car.

    If you could get the right offers/givaways you could do ok.

    I was thinking also of Toyota every year has a stand that they give away something to everyone that fills out their info at the fair. You could do something like this with hats, or somthing like that that you can get for less than $1.

    I am just not familiar enough to know what kind of money you can get per lead.
