    Anyone used offline methods like flyers? I have a good area to target for an offer and Im wondering what you guys think about this. Id buy a domain and redirect it to the offer. The area is pretty targeted for the offer. Think handing out free personal trainer coupons outside a gym, etc.

    It depends, a lot of flyers just get thrown in the bin. The cost to test isn't too expensive, so it could be worth a try. let us know how you get on though.

    Just hit it, its cheap to kick in and a round drive wont cost much.

    Tip: INCLUDE A QR CODE!

    Not in the USA - that never got any traction on any level that matters but maybe in some other countries it would be good.

    Pizza places used to be a good target for this sort of thing. Making a deal with them to print coupons for them for free and having Netflix affiliate offers on there as well was a thing for a while. Generate the offer on a 8.5 X 11, have 1/2 pizza coupons and 1/2 Netflix coupons and have it slapped on the pizza box.

    I don't know that it is working anymore or if there is even a Netflix affiliate offer.

    Would school campuses work well?

    I think it greatly depends on your niche, might be good for free things like netflix trial/loan etc

    Just my 2 cents ..
    unless you can make sure they will read the flyer , its a waste of money.
    most people when they get home , check the mail , throw the flyers and check the mail for any envelopes in their name.

    take it for what its worth.
