    Okay since I'm new here I though I'd share one of my methods with you to build my reputation a bit. I'm not entirely sure if this method has been posted on here before, so please don't flame me if it has.

    This method is entirely whitehat, and I actually got it off a friend of mine who said he's making about $150 a day from it and like I said I don't know where he got it from so it may not be unique, but fortunately its something that doesn't get saturated.

    This is to do with non-online marketing of your website to promote dating offers. This will work best if you live in a populated area, a city in particular.

    Okay here it goes:

    First off you need a and have signed up to a good affiliate network that has one-page dating offers (neverblue or copeac etc).

    Now go and buy a domain that is dating related, make sure you get a .com one as its important that its memorable. (This coupon: OYH3 will get you ones for $7.49 at GoDaddy).

    Now make a sub-domain for this domain using the city you live in, or the zipcode for the subdomain. e.g NY.LOCALDATEZ.COM OR 11377.LOCALDATEZ.COM or WOODSIDE.LOCALDATEZ.COM etc and redirect this straight to a one-page dating offer.

    Dating offers pay extremely well, start off with free ones first; many of which pay about $4.50 just for a name, age and email (one-page submits).

    Next up is making a sign or banner, either use word, or photoshop (if you can be bothered) and create a large, bold, font and have something like:
    "MEET LOCAL SINGLES FREE WITH ZIPCODE.YOURWEBSITE.COM"

    Print a few off on some nice looking paper and then get it laminated.

    Now attach your sign to a sign post and put them in busy places where lots of people will see - e.g. intersection or busy sidewalk etc.

    And now wait for the money to start rolling in. Create more subdomain for different areas and create larger signs etc once you've made some $$$. In total this method will cost you about $20 (domain, sign and petrol)

    To start with I though it was a stupid idea, but I've seen it in action and believe me it works, a lot of people often forget the powers of offline internet marketing :)

    But just look at the logic ---> Thousands of People See Your Sign Each Day ---> Of Which 100 Visit Your Site ---> About One in 5 Converts ---> 20 x $4.50 (for each offer) = $90 Just From 2-3 Signs Per Day.
    - Of the people that visit your site if they actually bothered visiting it there's a good chance they will fill out the first page of an offer, so often the conversion rate is much higher than 20%

    Try this with just a few signs, and if you have great success stamp them all around the place, and pretty soon you'll see some major cash coming you way.

    Obviously this one does require a little bit of work and it may seem like a strange idea, but if you're willing to put in a little time I can assure you it's very profitable.

    It is whitehat so you really have nothing to worry about, if your AM asks where your traffic from, and why the high conversion rate just say you're using offline marketing and explain.

    I see these signs all over the place. Most of them appear to be custom coded dating sites instead of just affiliate redirects. I would have personally just gone with the redirect method myself

    Nice idea. And it's pretty dirt cheap with the marketing investment. Handing out flyers on the street works too if you have the time.

    Those signs are all over the place where I live.

    Couldn't you get a large fine for putting those signs on public property?

    Your better off paying a flyer company to post them through letterboxes.

    Not a bad idea, now to find some areas with decent people-traffic.

    Hi all!

    MontyzPython posted this idea a couple of weeks ago, with a download link. See it at:

    Maybe we could combine these two threads?? :)

    Hey all!

    The link MontyzPython gave was to a blog entry. To make it a little easier to review, I copied it to a doc file. Enjoy! :)

    I've seen jobs listed on CL for 'sign placers'. They put the signs up friday night, take them back down sunday night/monday morning or something like that. I think it saves them from the littering laws, plus traffic is lighter at night.

    And yeah, these signs are all over where I live, only instead of dating, it's related to mattresses or renting/buying homes in many cases.

    I have had good results with something similar and posted flyers all over town. One place that worked well was laundry room bulletin boards in apartment complexes and make little strips along the bottom of the flyer where they can tear it off and have the site address. I used to live in a college town where there were tons of apt buildings so it wasn't too hard to hit alot of them in a short time. It is some work but paid off when i needed cash.

    Lol its good to see some more New Zealanders here :)

    If you have a look on Google's Keyword External Tool you'll see that dating keywords can go as high as $20.00! So the price of a $2 for a large number of visitors really is a steal.

    Has anyone else had success with this yet?
