    Hi. I'm going to be making about 500 flyers to promote a weight loss program. I was originally thinking of promoting an acai free trial, but I'm not sure. I registered a domain called www.loseweight"mycity".com, "mycity" being the metro area that I'm going to target. I've got a friend whose girlfriend delivers newspapers and she's going to slip my flyers in the newspaper, so it looks like an insert.:) What weight loss product is really hot right now that you guys think will have the best chance of converting?

    You can never go wrong with acai berry IMO. I still think it's got plenty life left in it, especially marketing it offline. Also at $40+ per free* trial, you won't need many conversions to turn a profit.

    No, this is the first time that I'll be trying flyers. I got the idea from this forum, and I'm excited to see if it'll work. onlyme, do you have any experience with anything like this?

    not yet, but this weekend will be doing a test run, in all honesty, im not sure 500 would make enough impact, im near a few big cities with lots of traffic and shopping malls, trains, buses, airports, all that good stuff, so im thinking trying this with 8-10k flyers, I will report back my results for ya though:)

    I think about advertising on the front page of a popular newspaper. Anyone have some statistics? It will cost me 1.5k for a front page banner for 1 week. What kinda hits/conversions can I expect from that?

    Anyone created any Acai Berry free trial flyers?
    This is what I'm going to be testing out shortly, just setting up a quick landing page, not sure whether to simply redirect to the offer or do have an actual landing page.

    Sounds good though :p

    I would redirect straight to the offer to start with if it was me. There's no point in going to the toruble of building a landing page if you go out and distribute the flyers and it turns out not to work that well.

    If it does work, build a landing page which captures there names and emails. Then you can promote weight loss shit to them until the end of time. (Or until they unsubscribe :))

    What I'm doing is setting up a landing page about losing weight with Acai Berry and the Colon Cleanse thinggyy..

    I've already designed my first flyer, i'll be ordering a thousand of them which promote Acai Berry, if it works out then i'll order more to deliver them, and deliver one about colon cleanse later......

    I'm offering 3 different acai berry trials, so I need a site.

    But that's how it's going for me so far, i'll update!

    edit --
    Also I'm adding my subscribe to aweber code thing on it before they get taken to the offer they chose so i can send them further emails etc.

    Did you design the flyer yourself? I need a good designer to make my flyer as this is not one of my strengths. Do you recommend anyone?

    WeRX or whatever it's called. You can get them and sell them on your own, or have them buy it directly, etc. I got the URL somewhere, message me if you want it.

    Create a flier that reads:

    Hi my name is ________ and god came to me in a dream and told me to spread the word on gods weight loss.. God told me to tell you to go to this website..

    God wants you to lose 10 pounds by next Sunday...

    Name your website.. lose 10 pounds by god.com

    Keep god theme going on website, have the top line have a testimonial about some lady who prayed she would lose weight.. and god sent her to this site.. she lost twice as much.

    Put fliers on cars at churches..

    I would probably go with acai too. It's completely unsaturated offline.

    For the flyers, you could use something like this:
    Code:
    http://www.corkboardcash.com/
    Comes up with 60 flyer templates for Weight Loss & BizOp (you have to make up your own ad copy though) that you can edit. It also has those flaps at the bottom you can cut & people can tear out.

    If you guys want me to upload it I'll put it up. Might have already been shared, I don't know. But I'll go find it later if you're interested.
