    Hey members, thanks for viewing my post!

    Alright so I came up with an easy way to collect general information (Name, Phone #, Email, Address etc.) from local residents and I'm trying to find out how to best monetize the data.


    Method:
    Setup a large container of some sort in the mall (or high traffic area) and advertise a weekly drawing for a $200 gas card. You should be able to collect hundreds if not thousand entries per week.


    What could be done with this information? I thought about finding an advertiser who would accept manual entries into a CPA offer, but they usually have ads on the back-end in an effort to drive leads themselves to offset marketing costs or generate additional revenue. If I were submitting the info manually, they wouldn't get any conversions on the back-end.

    Any ideas?

    Hmm, if you were to put one in the public area like a town center or something it would probably get removed by the council. It's a decent idea if you get it to work but I'm not sure you'll find an advertiser that will want to monetize such a small amount of data in just one local area. There are better methods using the internet that will allow you to gain leads from all different countries at a much higher scale with a lot less effort.
