    No, with email submits you get paid when the person submits their name and email address on the first page only... (sometimes email address only).

    However, some offers (still named email submits... don't know why) require that the person completes part of page two or three...etc.

    This is unlikely in your case. But anyway, double check the requirements of your offer.

    Possible Reasons for you not seeing leads, in order of the most likely to be:


    1- Network shaving. Not only that, but traffic from video sharing sites and yahoo answers isn't necessarily 100% US traffic (which is required for most of the offers).

    If your offer is for US traffic, I suggest re-testing in a US only media. Even if doing blackhat just to test. Drive around 100 submits and see if any lead shows up. If not, drop the darn network! Choose a better one.

    2- Offer EXPIRED or paused at the specific network. Sometimes even when offer expires, the leads still are able to go to the main site, but you don't get commission.

    3- Something wrong with the aff link retrieved.

    4- You have read your stats wrongly. Make sure the date periods are correct.

    5- A weird delay in their stats reporting.

    6- Network updating their system and you probably missed an email from them notifying you about that.


    It can't possibly be out of the above possibilities....

    I had 60 hits today for my laptop offer....no leads :( I have a strange feeling that because it is the end of the month that the advertiser hit their budget? Any thoughts? I thought it was just me

    Well I was using the free item giveaway via cl. I had a double meta refresh going to another webpage where I had the offer paged iframed so I don't think they could track the offer back to cl anyways, plus it was all manual email replys. I did this for over a week with around 800 clicks and got 1 lead credited into my account. They were split almost evenly between 2 cpa networks one was like 350 and the other 450ish. It has been over a week now since it wasn't converting at all I stopped. Plus like I said I had 3 friends try from their homes so the ips would be diff and didn't get credit for any of these. I have heard of shaving and poor response but that was ridiculous.

    Then most likely the network is a heavy shaver. Usually email submits have mass shaving but it varies from network to another.

    Try another email submit from the same network and market it the same way for a day or two, then watch the results.

    If it is reporting leads, then do the following:

    - Go to offervault.com and affspy.com ... signup quickly (takes a coupla mins), then search for that same laptop offer in other networks. I hope you are already affiliated with other networks.

    - Grab it from another network and test it out. If still no leads reporting, drop the muthafuka!

    This is rare, but I have had one similar email submit that somehow had the shaving from the advertiser (does this make sense?!). No matter where I grab it from, there is always heavy shaving. But other offers are performing ok with the same networks.
