    Successful Whitehat Campaign Seeks Investors

    I am part of a three person team that has been successfully implementing an offline campaign utilizing college campuses. Because all three of us live in different states (all native English), we are looking to scale up our success with investors since three separate school institutions can be used, possibly more.

    Some understandable questions and answers you may have.

    Is it whitehat?

    --Our method/offer is 200% whitehat, and on our small scale tests it performed remarkably. There is no gray area here at all.

    What is requested of the investor?

    --Other than the investment, nothing. We handle the work. The idea is to scale up, the size of our crew is big enough to pull it off already.

    Have you been paid by the company whose offer you have been promoting?

    --Yes. Payment is net 30.

    Who are the targets?

    --College students.

    Where did you test it successfully?

    --2 Community Colleges. We low-balled our expectations on purpose and decided to try community colleges before major college campuses to gauge student interest.

    What do you do to push your offer?

    --Thousands of fliers and business cards is what we?ll reveal. The other aspect is a clever secret that has really paid off. Again, it is whitehat.

    How much is the investment?

    --Minimum per investor is $200. You are welcome to invest more, and if interested, we will discuss how a larger investment will yield you personally more profits.

    What kind of profit can investors expect?

    --By our math we think we can double any investor?s initial investment. At the end of the campaign, each investor will also receive a report of the method.

    What happens if the plan goes to hell?

    --If for whatever reason unforeseen circumstances arise, your investment will be refunded in full.

    Who is this good for?

    --Anyone who has other projects going on but wants to earn profits by another team putting in the work. If nothing else, you learn the method upon completion.

    Serious inquiries only please cordially PM! Thanks for your time!

    To answer one of the same PMs we are getting. Yes, if the 3 campuses we use are successful we will scale up again. We are starting with those 3 first though. Hope this helps those who PM'd and asked.

    this can actually be very successful. OP, if your team is doing what I think they are it is a great idea. PM me and I'll let you know about another offer that converts well with the college crowd. it should be right up your alley.

    I'm just going on the record and saying that if this is for a scholarship offer it's not going to back out for the advertisers. But I am intrigued if its not one of these offers.

    Back out means turns into a valid saleable lead for the advertiser (why they are paying $$$ for the CPA in the first place). The main driver behind these scholarship offers has been for online universities to back solicit the participants (Strayer, Phoenix, Devry, Other Online Unis.). They want people who are out of work and thinking of returning to school NOT currently enrolled students. How do I know? I've worked on a direct basis with both of the leading advertisers in this space. Not to say that you won't get a check but scale it up enough and it will become an issue.

    I thought it was quite odd as well that they would consider current students not ideal leads but would rather have unemployed people who might return to school??? There has also been some changes in the for profit university industry in regards to compensation and how the sales folks enroll new students.

    I think one question most people would be interested in is what is the turnaround ETA?

    monster I did PM you back, not sure why it didn't go through. in the PM i said my team is not looking to expand until after this campaign, but we appreciate your interest. as to the other questions, turnaround for profits is 30 days, which is when the affiliate pays us (Net 30)

    oh ok hm ya idk why. so say maybe after this campaign (30 days I'm guessing, because you say turnaround is 30 days and you mention that investors will receive the details of the method after) you will be interested in my offer?

    Offline CPA - great! You can just get an offer like 'Win a free iPad' from a CPA company, print hundreds of flyers and leave them in classrooms before people come in and watch your affiliate earnings increase. Works well (not tested by myself, but by many others)

    monster-- possibly, will let you know if we change our mind. right now we are certainly not eager to give the method out except for those that invest. wouldn't be fair to them.

    krzysiekz-- agreed, however ours is nothing like a free ipad or any of that stuff. we are using something that directly relates to college students, hence its great conversion.

    supamanjon-- guarantee is that we double your investment or your money back when we get paid Net 30 (we have been paid before, we aren't just hoping). we dont have any contracts ironed out with current investors since you could just file a dispute with paypal anyway if you were unhappy. that said, if you are interested we can work together on a contract

    hope that helps, happy holidays
