Ok, so we are going to look at this Net Flix offer. They are going to give us $20 (approx - depending on the network, some as low as $16, but its trivial) for every free month trial offer we sell.
Now we need to start thinking who, and when are people intrigued with a free movie offer. Now at a mall... not so much, your best bet would be to sell gift certificates. But how about when they just ordered a pizza for a night in?
So we are going to target local pizza delivery places. Now selling this idea is freaking easy! Make a flyer, it says something like "Thanks for ordering from Joes Pizza! With every pizza this month you get a free month of Net Flix! Go to: 'your forwarding URL'" and a cool picture of Net Flix logo or whatever.
Now you can take the lazy rout, or the ambitious rout. You can send out an email to every Pizza Delivery place or go to each place. Now, right now I am going from place to place. I have 7 stores that are doing this for me and just want 3 more till im happy (I make about $300 a month from each place)
This is what your going to do- its rediculously easy, I've only had one place shoot me down so far. Walk in, ask to speak to the owner. Tell the straight up "I'm not selling anything! I'm just offering a suggestion to better monetize the delivery aspect of your business" Use words like monetize or merchandise or GP (Gross Profit) - it builds a litle credability to you. Now your going to tell them you are affiliated with Net Flix (you will be at this point) and tell them you would like them to give out one of these flyers to each of their customers, you will be adding value to your customers and we will be providing the flyers. And, with every person that signs up for a free month with Net Flix - we will pay you $6!! (baha) Tell them how you will be tracking through the link and will bring them a report at the end of the month and pay them cash yadda yada.
Just take a few mins and think about this...
You are printing 1/4 page flyers - for 10 bucks you have 2000 (enough for one place) you arnt even giving away 1/3 of your profit to someone, who is going to be doing all of the work for you! giving you every one of there clients! and now here is the best part of this whole thing - If one place isnt worth your time - offer them a buy out. Tell them they can buy the whole thing, changing what they get paid from $6 to $20, but all they have to do is make there own flyers, and oh ya, pay you $2000! Than all you do is set them up with an account at NetFlix. Its Brilliant.
Now like I said, I have 7 stores under me and I have done this buy out twice now. One was for $1500 (they were only making me $100 a month so I figured I may as well try something) And the other was for $3200 - Now they were making $400 dollars a month. You will notice there isnt a lot of math in how I sell to them. I just shoot for what I think I can get out of them. If they are REALLY enjoying the money, than aim high!!
OK, well I hope this helps a few of you out. This is my first offline endear and I have never been happier - Hit the thanks and show your support!
