    So i decided to get into IM about a month ago and i jumped right in with almost no knowledge of what I was doing. Needless to say the few projects I started were extremely unsuccessful. So I forgot everything I knew about the internet and I have spent a lot of time reading various tutorials and methods on this website to make my next attempt successful. Now there are a few methods involving CPA that I am going to try with my own twist, the only issue I am having is getting accepted into these CPA networks. It almost seems like I am automatically being denied because I do not have a website with loads of traffic or some such bs. My question is this, are there any decent CPA networks out there that offer freebies/giveaways that are not nearly impossible to be accepted in to? I have tried many networks and one of the main issues I'm running in to is the phone verification. These as****** will not answer their phones!!!
    If anyone knows of a CPA network that does not require phone verification or various other bs hoops to jump through I would really appreciate knowing about them.
    Also I am in CJ, but I am having a hell of a problem actually getting accepted by the advertisers on the network. On top of that I'm a bit skeptical about using CJ for the next method I want to try out as it may result in being banned if I don't do everything perfectly, and without much experience in this that probably will not happen.

    Peerfly and Adscend both accepted my application without any phone calls. Could try those out.

    With Peerfly you don't need any phone call. That is the only network I know of that does this

    I'm always amazed when I see people worrying about getting accepted into a CPA network and receiving the dreaded "phone call". Even when I first started in IM years ago, I never had a problem getting accepted into a network. I suppose it's just a matter of confidence.

    When they ask for a Web site, I always use my blog which has my real name as the domain. There are maybe 6 or 7 posts on there, no big deal. If they want something else, I tell them that I prefer not to expose my methods any more than I have to.

    When they ask what methods I use to promote offers, I tell them that I've tried pretty much at one point or another, then I rattle off a few... e-mail, PPC, banner ads, social networks, etc. I often make it a point that I do NOT use any blackhat methods.

    When they ask for numbers, I usually say something like "I've run big campaigns and small ones. If something works, I'll scale it up as much as I possible can."

    When they ask what kind of offers I'm looking for, I tell them that I've run all kinds and then throw out a few no-duh ones: dating, credit, insurance, etc. Sometimes I'll also say that I often browse the offers to find something the piques my interest, then I'll build a campaign around it to test.

    When they ask what other networks I'm in, I tell them I actively work about a dozen and rattle off a few of the best, including some referral-only networks.

    Everything I tell them is TRUE in my case, but they don't know that. I don't think I've ever been turned down after a phone call... usually they have my account approved right away. Don't be scared, it's really no big deal and the call might last all of a minute or two. If you're not comfortable bullshitting them, talk about what you know and are confident about. Tell them that you've been doing it for six months or so and have had some losers and a few winning campaigns, but now you'd like to try a new offer niche because you have some ideas about how to promote it. Be prepared to say in general how you'll do it, but be somewhat vague.

    Before applying, browse through their offers and find something that appeals to you. Think about how you'll promote it and make sure it's within the parameters of the offer. If the offer says no social networks, don't plan on using Facebook ads. Duh. A lot of times they'll ask you if there was a particular offer you were looking to promote, so it's good to have an answer ready. Otherwise, you'll come off as a clueless lookey-loo.

    Final tip... don't get into a network with the intent of scamming them. I know this is a black hat board, but my experience is that while BH techniques can sometimes make you short-term money (IF the CPA network doesn't figure out your scam and hold your funds), but it's seldom a good long-term strategy.

    Anyway, that's just my advice.

    i got accepted to one without a phone call by talking to an AM on AIM instead, you could try that.

    it all depends on the network, some are easy to get into and some are hard.

    You would think this is funny, but I got accepted into m4xb0uN7y when I was 13 and just started learning about this industry. The phone call was the most fun part, I just said I had so many twitter followers, youtube subscribers and blog visitors and my manager accepted me. Talk like you know more than other people and they will start thinking, "If I don't accept ______ into our network we will lose out."

    PS: If you don't have a website just say you make new websites for every campaign you utilize.

    I suggest WolfStormMedia. Its old proven CPA company with probably the highest payouts in the industry (at least for email and zip submits), no phone call, they will ask you questions via email.

    It is an invite-only network, i can sent you invitation if you want and help you with questions they ask to get you approved...

    Phone calls are the norm, but verifying phone numbers with something like gmail or craigslist phone verification just screams no to me. If you don't want my google voice number, there are a million other networks I can join that won't require such bs. I feel this way after my info was either sold to another affiliate network or transferred to a partner site... Or if they somehow hacked their databases and emailed all the affiliates to join up. It happens. Just get used to phone calls. BS. Hype yourself up. Say you have years of experience. And don't reveal too much. Usually you're in.

    First, thanks for all the great feedback. Second, (I know I'll probably get flamed for this) I did some more research on here about affiliate networks and found that setting your website as FB, YT, and Twitter increase acceptance rate by roughly 10000%. My inbox is now full of emails informing me that I've been accepted to various networks and various advertisers. Now that the easy part is done it's time to find something else to pull my hair out over. And I'm sure I'll have plenty of opportunities for that in the next few months.
    Thanks.
