How I'm Making Money with Offline CPA Drop Cards

161 replies
I just wanted to share how I'm making some money with offline CPA marketing.

What I decided to promote is an email submit offer from PeerFly for a free iPad 2, that pays me $1.40 per conversion.

What I did was designed my own drop card that has the iPad 2 offer on one side and a $100 bill on the other side, but what I do is fold my drop card in four and that make my drop card look like real money and people pick it up thinking it's real and that get's my drop card readership.

You can see a few pictures of my drop card below to give you a better idea what it looks like.

I just started using this method today and I droped I think around 100 drop cards when I was out and about today and I just checked my PeerFly account and I made $14, so that's 10 conversion, I don't think that to bad for my first day.

I had 2,500 drop cards printed and plan to get them all out to the public in the next week, so I will post back here in the next week or so with an update as to my earnings, etc.

I just wanted to share this idea and see what you guys had to say?

All the best,

Martin

    That's very clever.

    I'll check back to see how you go.

    On a sort of related tip...

    This post reminded me of a pub that I used to frequent in my old city.

    The owners had glued coins and notes all over the place and it was always good lullz to watch people dig em out.

      I get my drop cards printed online at www.gotprint.com i paid like $32 for 2,500 cards including shipping, i don't think you will find a better deal online then that.

      I hope this helps,

        Martin, thanks for information and keeping us informed. A quick question - where on that site should we look for the drop cards. I'm not seeing anything in that price range on it or any other drop card site I can find in Google.

          Jack,

          Drop cards are just regular size business cards, you won't find drop cards advertised as drop cards on most online printing websites.

          If you click on this link http://gotprint.net/g/pricing.do you will see on the right side a banner ad adverting 5000 full color business cards for $46.40.

          I hope this helps,

          Martin

    How about doing the same thing with a payday loan offer, or something with a higher payout, Tweak it just a bit
    Maybe do the same thing at colleges with a scholarship or student loan or grant offer

    Going about various places dropping 2500 cards is a lot of work on a lot of days. On the other hand if you outsource there is no way of knowing whether the cards have been distributed/ dropped, other than a photo or two by the outsourcer.

    The idea is good but the problem for most lies in execution. Good post.

    Ya the conversion ratio is great though, its just that with how long it takes to distribute them, 14 bucks is not worth it. Thats why I said go for higher paying offer

                Don't do in countries that hate freedom or the rule nit pickers will report you and you might get arrested. They now have cameras everywhere. More and more countries hate freedom ti's harder and harder to do what you are doing in some countries.

    The card design is brilliant. One thing you may want to be careful of is the whole "WIN" thing. Unless it's actually an offer that uses those words, you might get in trouble with your CPA network. Good luck though, and def keep us posted!

      I just wanted to share an update on this idea, as I forgot all about this post and to be honset this idea did go as planed.

      In a nutshell I did get all 5,000 of my cpa drop card out to the public and did earn around $500 with it, but would have earned a hell of alot more, but the cpa network I was involved with shut my link down as they say I violated the rules, even with the fact I got permission to use my drop card from them, but I'm not going to go on about that, I just wanted to let everyone know the idea does work, but there are still some risks and that if you are going to use drop cards in your local area double check and get proof you have permission to use them, so you don't end up like I did.

      All the best,

      Martin

        never ever use links to a CPA network directly
        Always use links you are in control of

        its easy to register a new domain for that purpose
        and just redirect it to the CPA offers link

        in case you lose the offer
        just replace the link

        thats true for all your online and offline promotions

      In a nutshell I had already told the network I was using drop cards and was told it was fine, but after like 2 weeks I got an email telling me the advertiser of the offer requested for me to stop promoting thier offer in my area and the network blacklisted me from promoting the ipad email submit offer.

      Thanks, while reading this thread I tried to figure out what drop cards are. Never heard about them.

      From your remark I guess they indeed get dropped, like on the footpath or so?

      I guess I would incur a huge cleaning bill for doing that around here.

    LOL ... epic post. Loving it, best offline marketing strategy I seen in a long time.

    Here's what I think you could improve on though: The offer! $1.40 a pop isn't going to cover your expenses as you can't scale. Use your same angle, but concentrate on pay-per-lead offers that pay at least $20-30 bucks (i.e. insurance quotes, loan apps, etc).

    I think you could scale that WAY up this way ... very smart way of grabbing attention. Also, might want to consider where you drop them off (letterbox, pidgeon hole, street, etc.)

    But great idea, love it!

      He said the $14 came from about 100 dropcards and it costs $32 for 2,500 cards so isn't that about $1.28 for 100 cards which makes the net profit about $12.72.

      Unless i've missed something, how is that not covering the expenses?

      Per per lead sounds an interesting idea, but as the traffic won't be targeted it might be tough even to get 1 conversion from 100 cards.

    Get in some big apartment buildings with a ton of units / floor. Tape one of these suckers on every door. Like a ninja. Would this be a nice way to distribute? Just an idea!

      Jon,

      Your idea could work, but if a manager of the apartment buildings see you distributing cards or flyers they will ask you to leave in most cases.

      What I do for big apartment buildings is I find out who the person is that delivers newspapers there and I work out a deal with them to distribute my flyers with the newspapers and this way I don't have to do the leg work myself.

      Just an idea to consider.

      All the best,

      Martin

    I think this is a great idea. What if you put two offers on it? A simple offer like the Ipad offer and then one that pays a little more?
    Watch out for those littering fines.

      GforceSage,

      Thanks for the kind words.

      Yes, you can have 2 offers on one drop card, I have had success with offering a Clickbank product on one side and a CPA offer on the other side, so by all means use the space on your drop card as best as you can to promote.

      To your success,

      Martin

      Here are some of the ways I'm having my drop cards distributed and I do have an advantage as being in the offline advertisng business I have conections and friends that own businesses and who are willing to help me.

      The first way I get my drop cards distributed is from my friend who owns a corner store/meat deli and he let me staple my drop card to all of his meat packages store flyer and he places them in his customers bag.

      Another ways i get my drop cards distributed is the chinese take-out place I eat at every other day, let me place a business card holder display by the register.

      I also have a friend who owns a barber shop and he gives one of my drop cards to each of his clients.

      Another way is my best friend Ed who owns a computer repair store also let me place a business card holder display on his counter.

      Now I also place a few of my drop cards on all the bulletin boards I go by everyday when I'm out and about handling business and I drop a card or two on all the resting benches I go by.

      I'm also talking with a friend of mine who teaches at a local college and I'm trying to work out a deal with him to leave my drop cards in hot spots or high traffic areas of the college.

      I'm not an exspert at CPA marketing I'm still learning and trying to find out what works and what dosn't, but wanted to share what I was doing and thought it might interest others.

      I hope this answers your question and helps.

      All the best,

      Martin

        I just wanted to say, that I used to be in a MLM and we used these all the time. They do work. I want to thank you for sharing because although your method is simple..you have proven that it works and its just what many of us need to take action. So I sincerely thank you for sharing and wish you more success in this campaign.

    Not going to lie, I tremendously respect people doing manual bum methods like drop cards. It shows they are willing to roll up their sleeves and work their tales off to learn this business. I'm not saying drop cards are one of the best methods out there, I'm just saying the people who are willing to do methods like this are the ones who are more serious about doing whatever it takes to succeed...and I respect that.

    That's exactly how I started!

          How about adding a QR code so that people with smart phones can just scan the card to go to your site/offer. Of course, you will have to be sure that your site is optimized for mobile viewing.

            Where you gonna put QR code? If you put like 'Scan .this. to win a free iphone' - in my opinion your conversion rate will be low. I'm using QR codes only for discounts/or gain likes, followers n stuff.

            Examples:

            Scan to like us and get 100% discount of this and this product.
            and etc..

            But you should give a chance, create one or two drop cards campaigns in different medias, track them, and see how it goes. All that stuff requires action! Just take action and create a case study in this CPA Forum section, I bet a lot people would like to see it.

            Good luck anyway

    Nice idea, I just to use a method dropping flyers with iPad offers and similar in lectures halls inbetween lectures when it was empty and that method was very successful, so many students have laptops or iphones with them at all times, a lot picked them up and went online straight away, but this didn't really have the imagination of this.

    I know of a company near me that buys golds, I once picked up a 2 pence coin, and it was labelled on the opposite site '£70...this would be worth if it was gold' and their web address, made me but was a very innovative idea at the time

    I don't think he'll be fined for littering, cause someone will definitely pick the card up upon seeing "money", and if that person chooses to drop the card upon opening it, then the littering offense would go to that person wouldn't it :p

    Idea is great have to give it that. Can be used to market a whole lot of other stuff, but needs some work on further research to find out good locations for dropping and also to get more targeted "pickers"

    This is a really really great idea. But like what others are saying the offers payout is too little.
    How about a loan/refurnish your home/insurance/make money from home offers promote them in mailbox?
    1) deign a mailer and put it in an envelope
    2) similar drop cards
    3) pamphlets
    I think this will have a better impact as people will actually check their mailbox for letters and stuff while going up the lift they have the time to actually read and think about the offer.
    On top of that they can go directly to their computer the moment they reach home. SO yeah i guess this might work. I might give this a try. But still looking forward to more input from you guys

        Just found this thread. Very clever idea! I have an account with one CPA network but haven't figured out how to make it work. I might try something along this line.

        Martin, could I ask you a couple of questions about your drop-card method? And to everyone on this thread, maybe a question about CPA networks generally and what gets your account banned ...

        1. Martin, you indicate that you are still using this method, even though one of your accounts was banned for you doing this. So you're using different offers, or a whole different network maybe, for your current "card dropping?"

        2. Does the link printed on the card go directly to the offer (using a short-link maybe), or to a domain of yours? If the latter, did you create your own landing/sales page, or do you just do a redirect?

        3. I've thought about doing offline CPA marketing such as flyers around colleges. Do the advertisers or the networks see a bunch of responses suddenly coming from one city as a red flag that maybe you are doing something they don't want you to do (like card dropping!)?

        4. If I just did this without asking if it's OK, how would they find out? (Kind of a different way of stating question 3, I guess.)

        5. Why would the advertiser/network care if someone got them leads with this? You're not incentivizing, or spamming Craigslist or anything like that.

        Thanks,

          Steve
          The CPA network might care because with email submits, the advertiser is obviously capturing email addresses to build their list. If the people who find the card rarely use the internet, then they might not want them as leads (since they found the card offline, they might not even use the internet at all).

      Yes, the "tickets" were just the stock paper. Was a heavier stock and much more durable!

          Same core concept as the drop cards but used Ticket Stock paper which was 1) different 2) better stock 3) cheaper

          It requires mucho work and sweat but it works!

      Drop cards are also great for promoting Clickbank.com and JvZoo.com products offline just find a high selling product that has a high appeal to most people and buy a domain name to forward to your affiliate link and create an ad to place on a drop card or half page flyer and hand them out door to door, etc and make money.

      All the best,

    Lol, this is classic definition of Ninja marketing, right?



    It shouldn't have been too much of an issue when your CPA account (or offer) got cancelled; just quickly find another one to promote and redirect your URL to that offer. Problem solved.

    Also, there are tons of gigs like this on Fiverr for anyone who wants to ramp it up, but I'm always concerned about people actually doing the work; what if they rip you off?

    I guess, you can set up a private URL for each job and see if they get any results, if they don't oh well, if they do, hire them again.

    Also, I would definitely try some higher paying offers, maybe even some "Make Money Online" offers, everyone is broke now adays and I bet people might check it out.

    Good luck to you in any event.



    PS: Have you ever had any other complaints? Or someone chasing you down the street "HEY YOU DROPPED THIS!"

      I'm also talking with a friend of mine who teaches at a local college and I'm trying to work out a deal with him to leave my drop cards in hot spots or high traffic areas of the college.

      I'm not an exspert at CPA marketing I'm still learning and trying to find out what works and what dosn't, but wanted to share what I was doing and thought it might interest others.

      I hope this answers your question and helps.

      All the best,

      Martin

        Hi Martin,

        I have a question, when you put the drop cards at the chinese restaurant and the the other stores, do you still fold the drop cards?? or just using a business card stand?

        thanks

        Another ways i get my drop cards distributed is the chinese take-out place I eat at every other day, let me place a business card holder display by the register.

        I also have a friend who owns a barber shop and he gives one of my drop cards to each of his clients.

      As far as I know you are not allowed to palce anything inside anyones
      mailboxes it againt the law, so I would stick with the normal ways of
      distributing drop cards, so not to get into trouble.

      Just ask your affiliate managers. There should be no reason why you can't market Cost Per Sale offers offline.

    I need to find an offer for Canada and do this around here. I know. Set a few out in public restrooms in malls and and in coffee shops, like Tim Hortons and Starbucks and a few local coffee hangouts.

    What I did was designed my own drop card that has the iPad 2 offer on one side and a $100 bill on the other side, but what I do is fold my drop card in four and that make my drop card look like real money and people pick it up thinking it's real and that get's my drop card readership.

    You can see a few pictures of my drop card below to give you a better idea what it looks like.

    I just started using this method today and I droped I think around 100 drop cards when I was out and about today and I just checked my PeerFly account and I made $14, so that's 10 conversion, I don't think that to bad for my first day.

    I had 2,500 drop cards printed and plan to get them all out to the public in the next week, so I will post back here in the next week or so with an update as to my earnings, etc.

    I just wanted to share this idea and see what you guys had to say?

    All the best,

    Martin

    Martin,
    Sorry to hear that your idea didn't work for your CPA campaign (there are many CPA networks around) but it is ingenius for many types of direct mail type campaigns. Some of the networks such as NeverBlue.com have a disclaimer in the fine print on their homepages that offline advertising is prohibited.

      star007,

      I have switched from promoting CPA offer to promoting affiliate products
      on drop cards and have had pretty good success with it. I use promote money making and weight loss products from Clickbank and JVZoo. I place one money making affiliate products on one side of drop card and weight loss product on other side.

      All the best,

      Martin

    Hey guys, i notice a few of you are suggesting different ways of distribution such as mailboxes and flyers etc. I think the conversion rate is so high because the lead picked sopmething up off the floor or bench or wherever, they will look at it, and if they think that they will do it, they will a=take it home and do it. If not, they will most likely throw it on the floor again. 50 50 chance it will land face down meaning the next person is going to pick it up etc.

    If they rent interested, they will chuck it back down and someone who is will pick it up and keep it.

    Flyers in someones letterbox however, if they don't like it, its going in the bin.

    If someone keeps that bit of paper they found in public, they want to take action.

    How much would you say we should pay to outsource? I agree a 12 pack and a pizza would cut it but just in case the person wants cash? Thanks in advance.

    Sarevok, excellent ideas added to the OP. To both, a big thanks.

    The idea of just re-directing to a completely different offer is BRILLIANT to say the least.

    Just highlighting this so any one who fast forwards to the last page does not miss this gem.

    Just think outside the box guys, there are tons of ways to make money (non 9-5) Its all about "MINDSET"

    Kenster, do you mind sharing where you could acquire a good deal on the ticket stock? Do you have any contacts? Thanks.

    Thanks for that - I had no idea Peerfly had that rule. I guess it is best to write each one and ask clear permission to conduct a method. Just to be on the safe side.

    Also read Neverfly wouldn't allow this.

    I will definitely give CB products a try using this methodology.

    Also,

    That was excellent advice. Thanks for that.

    From what I read (most recent) OP says one side use make money offer and the other side use weight loss offer. Great idea.

    Places to leave would be cars outside mall and even door steps (besides obvious choices)

    Thanks to Martin for all the great ideas and input. I have definitely picked up some gold nuggets and combed through each post.

      Unfortunately not, I haven't done this type of stuff in a long time.

    I have used drop cards before for other ventures. They look fantastic in person! However yours are DIRT cheap compared to what I have seen and paid. Usually about $145 for 1,000 cards.

    I used dollarcardmarketing.com. The cards were taller than a business card, 4 inches x 3 5/8. This is the height of a real bill, so they looked more like real money and had the correct looking color security thread that is placed in bills. They were also printed on stock that looked and felt very close to the real thing. How do yours look? (can't tell from the photos).

    Also, the new $100 bills are out now. I wonder if anyone has those cards yet?

    Below is a scan of a real $100 bill and half of the the drop card. Both scanned at actual size. The one on the left is the real deal, the one on the right is the drop card.

    And yes, these are 100% legal as they are only 2/3 the side of a real bill. (mising the middle third of a bill).
