    Ok guys i got an idea for some of you that are into doing CPA stuff
    If your in the US im sure you know of the newspaper USA TODAY
    its the biggest in the country heres some Demographics

    3.6 million daily readers with an average household income of $77,799.
    Average age: 47
    Reaches 800,000 self-employed readers every day. 500,000 are self-employed at home!

    So heres the game plan very easy no bs no stress
    we can set this up let it do its thing and we all make some good coin

    So how do we do it?

    1. Figure out a niche we want to hit seeing how shit is going in the us
    im thinking Debt, forclosure, Loan offers will do the trick something with a good $20-$25 per submit higher the better we just need to make sure
    they dont have to pull out a CC or input SSN# people sometimes stay clear
    from those do to all the fraud idenity theft shit people see on tv :eek:lol

    2. We pick the offer from one of our networks that we decide

    3. Gather our links and put them on a rotator heres the rotator i use
    http://rotator4pro.com/index.php forward the rotator link to a catchy domain

    4. Create and agree on the copy of the ad

    5. Place our ad sit back watch the action and if it hits big R&R rinse&repeat

    Whats the cost of the ad?
    $300 usd for a 4 line mini display ad

    Deadline for the ad?
    3:00 PM E.S.T.
    2 Days Before Insertion

    When will the Ad show?
    If its in by wed we will be in the USA Today Weekend edition :D

    How do we keep the cost down but at the same time make enough coin so we can all be happy?
    Im thinking 5-10 people per ad ran 6 people / $300= $50 Per person

    the rotator can be set so we all have equal traffic

    Some quick math...
    $25payout * 100signups= $2500 divided by 6 people = $416 - $50cost of the Ad $366profit

    so your thinking 100 signups?? WTF Mr.Uknowns on that good shit again!
    just.....
    look at the demographics again 3.6 million daily readers! now if you have done any offline/direct mail marketing the goal is touch at least 1% sooooo
    1% of 3,600,000 drum roll pleaseeeee 36,000 so even if we lowballed the shit out of this thing and say .25% thats still 9000 times that by the $25 per submit :eek: were swiming in the fucken cash!

    now before you start thinking none of this is possible its just to good to be
    true read this post again and keep a few things in mind

    1. Our ad copy has to be catchy
    2. we need a catchy domain
    3. The offer has to be a good payout $20+
    4. The offer has to be non threating to the reader meaning
    no SSN# no CC required

    with that said guys and gals id love to hear your thoughts on this!

    Thanks:cool:
    Mr.Unknown

    Hope you dont take this the wrong way but having done this type of advertising before let me show you a bit better way to do this. First the newspaper you are looking to advertise in is only going to post that ad for one day at that price and to only 3.6 million.

    Now you could advertise this way and reach 14 million people and you will see the ads , traffic and people coming in for months to come. Most of these listed in the link IM going to share have websites where you guessed they will put your ad online free just for being in there papers. It does cost a bit more but you will make a ton more cash and try to lower your expectations down from 1% to less than .05% and you will still come out way ahead. I would be intrested in what your planning also we should make it so we can advertise to these people again and again for future giveaways and things they might be intrested in. http://www.nationwideadvertising.com/natclasadnet1.html

    plus you could just put 5 ads in USA today for $1500 and reach 18 million+ readers.

    Yes but look at the residual which is if you use the nationwide site the smaller papers seem to get read and free internet ads as well which will get indexed

    I was thinking about this last week and called a couple of my AM's just to see if they allowed any print ads at all and they all said no. So you just need to be sure to spoof the referrer eh?

    I have cash & time to invest as well so count me in.

    Thanks for that link Gawd. I think I saw that in a similar post a few months back but the thread was moved to JV before I bookmarked it and have been looking for it ever since.

    That's not that big of a difference. It's $1,400 for 14M and $350 for 3.6M. The cost for the National ad ends up being $0.0001 per view while the USA Today ad only ends up being $0.000102 per view which is only 0.000002 difference.hat means your paying about $7.20 more per 3.6 million in USA Today than the other. Not that big of a difference.
