    I was thinking..I live in a town of 5000 people, and I could print enough flyers to send to each mail box saying go to this website to win an iPod or something. Does this sound like it could work or is it stupid?

    It can work, but the biggest problem is whether your network accept offline network or not, you should check those before implementing. Or looking for one that accept offline traffic.

    Out of those 5000 people:

    - 500 are over 60, so they don't really give a fuck about an iPod;
    - 1000 are parents, which don't really need an iPod even if they had one as they work all day;
    - 1000 are kids, which don't really care about an iPod as they want to play games all day and eat candy.

    You are left with 2,500 people to target now. Do you really think its worth the money and time invested for a CPA product?

    If you were to open a restaurant, a pizza place or something of that kind, then this can work out.

    It doesn't have to be an iPod though. It could be something universal like a chance to win money or something.

    The time it would take to deliver plus the costs would make it a waste of time and money. I used to use flyers, however I used them in a targeted way and not just a random hit and hope.

    What if you were selling a product and you set up a site to take PayPal. I know there are always people desperate to spend their money on something

    I think all were thinking about this solution. But has mickyfu said you have to target your flyers and post it on walls where you think can be interested people in what you're selling. There is no way to make sales posting flyers everywhere without reason (it's offline spam).

    Of course it can work, but you have to work on targeting the right people. Don't just send flyers promoting ipads or iphones to random houses. And also, don't promote the $1 offers. Sign up with a proper CPA network, not the ones everyone uses to lock their fake hacks.

    I will give you a clue, in the UK people are desperate to throw their money away, gambling is big. I paid people to hand flyers to people going in and out of bookmakers, and made good money doing it. These are highly targeted people. Just randomly handing out leaflets is simply random, and probably not going to be profitable.

    I think you might have better success with a MLM campaign then do that mate.

    I think 5k people a small target mate also you will need to ask your AM if they allow offline traffic at all....if you were in the UK or other European countries where there is a lot of crowd outside the football stadiums you know fans coming...this is one angle but there are so many possibilities

    Pointless... mass offline mail doesn't work nowadays
    You will get smth like 0,1% conversion while wasting a lot of money on printing, distribution etc
