    hey guys Ive been dealing with mostly email and and zip submits. I figured out a semi grey hat way of getting real people to sign up to these offers. I am Using a double meta refresh to hide the referer.

    So heres what happens. I start promoting an offer, In one day i get around 250 clicks to that offer, and about a 20 percent conversion ratio on this email submit. All is good make some decent money.

    day 2 comes... I change nothing at all , get the same amount of clicks, but not one conversion at all. This is kinda of odd, Not One Conversion... When the day before was awesome?

    This has happened on 3 different networks. Various Different offers from email to zip, and its really really pissing me off.could the double meta refresh be screwing it up? but then why does it work for one day?

    Change offers, I notice the same things no some offers.

    In fact just in the last 2 weeks I've had one offer I was promoting change from an incentivized email submit to a 5 page form w/ same payout at maxbounty and another go from saying "all traffic is ok" to "ask your affiliate manager for approval." and I'm talking within 48 hours of me starting the campaign, freaks me out lol.

    If you are using a craigslist autoposter then you need to change accounts each day or more. Some networks will block your link the day after you earn a lot. The same happened to me and I figured it out. Get like 5 different zip or email submits and spam a different one each day, that way you allow the network to block your link to save the advertiser money, and you don't waste your time trying to get conversions.

    Yes if you're working with email/zip submits expect to be scrubbed hard. These guys can't pay $1-$2 per email/zip submit unless they make their money back, if you're leads aren't making them money they aren't going to pay for them.

    I had the exact same thing happen with Never*Blue. Took about a week before any conversions would happen with that ad. It was a zip sumbit.

    Me too, i try to rotate my networks now not pulling too much from each network, it seems if you get a nice day with good numbers, the next day you can guarantee it will be a crap day:) so i give them some cool down time and come back a few days later.
