We are looking for people handing out vouchers for us - how to find them?


0

Should we place an ad somewhere? Where?

The jobs are as follows: people are handing vouchers out to people wearing eyeglasses. If people buy, then a commission is paid (voucher code).

Many thanks for any help (yes we tried adwords, but it does not work so very well for us...)

Have you tried Craigslist? Their events gigs section sounds suited to what you're looking for, and would allow you to target major cities (assuming your product is nationally, or even internationally, available).

  • Jay, thank you, Craigslist looks perfect, BUT they won't let me post outside my home city? Whenever I try to post for a US-city, they say I must register with a US-phone number (my main location currently is in Europe, I have a US-telephone number from Skype, but Craigslist says they "could not verify it", although its working perfectly) – Philobus 7 years ago
  • HMMM....Craigslist does not seem to be very useful. I successfully posted this in 1 european city, but now whenever I want to post this to a 2nd city, Craigslist does not let me ("You may only post your listing in one category and on one site at a time. Craigslist readers strongly prefer not to see the same posting listed multiple times.") That seems to be ridiculous. It would perfectly make sense to post our ad in all cities worldwide.... – Philobus 7 years ago
  • You can post in multiple cities, but you have to use a different email address for each. I've done that in the past. Of course this only works if you're only posting your ad in a few cities. – Zuly Gonzalez 7 years ago
  • Really difficult with Craigslist....But i just tried Kijiji, there it seems to be easy to post everywhere. But do people looking for jobs look into Kijiji at all in the States? – Philobus 7 years ago
  • Wasn't aware of the multiple cities difficulty. I think Zuly's workaround is worth pursuing; Craigslist gets many times the traffic of Kijiji, worldwide and in the US: http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/kijiji.com+craigslist.org#trafficstats + http://siteanalytics.compete.com/craigslist.org+kijiji.com/ - Also, sent you a quick e-mail with another option -- a friend who has extensive experience with this kind of offline marketing. – Jay Neely 7 years ago
  • Thank you for your help. WHY is it CL does not want us to post to several cities (we have a completely legitimate offer)? We would pay for it.... Looks like a business opportunity for someone? – Philobus 7 years ago
  • You'd have to ask them for sure, but I imagine it's because they're mainly a city-focused service, and most of the types of offers people want to post in multiple cities are completely irrelevant to location (fill out online surveys & similar shady offers). – Jay Neely 7 years ago

Sorry you didn't get an answer the first time around. Let me try again.

As for where to advertise the flyer job...The only thing I can think of right now is Craigslist. But I'm not sure I would trust someone I find on Craigslist. Hopefully others here can help. I'll keep thinking about it, and if I think of something else, I'll update my answer.

Other Considerations: Do you have a Twitter account and/or Facebook Fan Page? If so, you can advertise the job that way. If you don't, you should seriously consider it. That's a good way to not only advertise these jobs, but also advertise your product. I looked at your web site (got the link from your other post) and didn't see a Twitter or Facebook badge on your site.

Another option is to involve your current customers. It sounds like you have some happy customers. Consider asking them to spread the word. Maybe instead of getting people to hand out flyers, you can give your current customers the commission for referrals that end up purchasing your product. You can even do a combination of both people handing out flyers and customer referrels. If using your current customers, you may also be able to offer a discount on their next purchase.

Good luck!

  • Zuly, thank you. Started existing customer referral program several days ago. so far no overwhelming success, but I might have to try harder. i only have a handful followers on twitter, so i think tweeting it out won't move much. I started a Facebook fanpage, but I guess it will take many months to build up a serious fanbase (but we'd like to earn more money right now ;-) ) – Philobus 7 years ago
  • Yes, it does take time. I suggest you put "follow me" Twitter and Facebook buttons on your website. – Zuly Gonzalez 7 years ago
