Any Suggestions for offline CPA?

Hello all,

I was wondering if anyone knows what a marketing newbie could do offline in a city with 2.3 mill population? one of the most popular intersections here must receive atleast 70,000 people a day and I thought this would be great to stand there and hand out flyers or postcards with affiliate offers that target the masses. But I have seen people taking about how they are doing this stuff, and notice someone always says something along the lines of you can get banned from the affiliate network for doing that, or fined for handing them out. Does anyone know where I could find affiliate products to offer offline and not get in trouble for it?


A bit about me - I have never done any marketing except the 5 courses I took in Business school. I have learned alot about marketing in the last few years and am very passionate about it. I am very creative and I think outside the box easily. I know basic HTML and CSS but only made websites in Business school and they didnt turn out that great but I got good marks. I am a fast learner and got very good grades in college (honors), not bragging just want to show that I put my all into learning.

I hope this starts up a good conversation with lots of ideas for any new warriors that join the site and perhaps older members aswell

Thank You

    You can use postcards to send responders to a website, capture the email address, and send the subscriber on to a CPA offer.

    You can rent lists that are a subset of your local population. Test out the campaign with the smallest amount you can rent the first time. If you at least break even, make improvements and increase the size of your mailing. Target different subsets and compare the results.

    Develop and test various opt-in pages, and keep improving your campaigns.

      I dont mean to offline business or anything. I mean CPA that would allow me to set up on a high traffic area.

      I mean like buy a wireless internet card have a small booth and a big poster saying something like "win free Ipad" or "win 500 starbucks gift cert" they ask we let them sign up email/postalcode and they are entered into it and I receive the CPA .

      But I like warrior Roys idea and then I am capturing their e-mail for me to send more CPA offers later. The best part of this is I signed up to rogers 2 months back for 2 iphones and received a free Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 4G 16GB so I can use my tablet to get their e-mails I will make the offer (for my tablet last like 1-2 months stand out there handing out postcards and get tons of CPA offers out before I even do the draw for the Samsung Tablet

      Talk about self liquidating offer !!!

      Thank You Again Warrior Roy !!!

    Have you considered starting your own PA practice? Keep your 9 to 5 job for the money while you start your own tax practice after work or on the weekends during the busy tax season. Clients trust their taxes to anyone who has the CPA designation, whether or not you have the experience. You could also start a bookkeeping practice and see where it leads you. Just a suggestion.

    Offline CPA is more common than most people think. One of the most popular is handing out flyers at a computer lab at a University. So the students are right in front of the computer. Offers like "Win an iPad" or any giveaway work best.

    But the trick is to put the name of the Universtity in the title. For example "Attention Yale University Students" or "Special Offer For Yale Students", etc.

    So rather than standing at an intersection, you should go to your local university, that way you can target them with an offer you think would appeal to that crowd rather than shooting arrows in the air.

    I hope this helps :-)

    Blessings.

    Look into Pay Per Call offers. This is a popular offline method for driving leads / conversions for advertisers who are in the affiliate space. You get your own assigned telephone number that you drive / transfer calls to either online or offline. Some of the advertisers require that you prescreen these people using your own phone system and then you just simply transfer the call over to the number that is provided to you. You can go to ringrevenue.com to check out some of the affiliate networks who are using their services.

    We also house 2 of our own private call campaigns within the biz opp and student loan debt / debt settlement that take offline promotion. The action is a bit different then your regular transfer but you can earn more money. We have a foreclosure prevention program in the mix as well. If you need any info or assistance, let me know.
