    I've been reading up on the CPA articles in this section and have a decent idea that what I am after could probably get me banned quickly with the networks.

    As of right now, I am using a content locker (built my own with css, html, jquery) because content locker pro was causing some weird delays on the 1st link click so the users were somehow not seeing the locker or offers.

    Doing my own lets it come up instantly. Anyways, I had to use an IP address API so I could determine if users were coming from the United States or international. The conversions I was seeing led me to believe many of my international visitors were getting hit with different ads then what I wanted. So I threw in some PHP logic that feeds XYZ ads to the U.S. and ABC ads to the international crew inside my custom locker.

    I am getting about 3-5 conversions ($5-7 per day) out of about 20-40 clicks on the U.S. offers. Not really sure how good that is relative to others. 0 leads on any of the international ones.

    I have considered doing the Zip submit approach against a captcha setup while redirecting my referer, but as stated earlier, my initial concern is the advertisers noticing 1st page zip submits, but no other follow ups.

    My current offers are stuff like iPad 2 email submit, iPhone email submit, and Call of Duty email submit. So 3-5 ppl are actually doing those per day in order to access my file downloads.

    I feel like I have particular things in place that has this all prepared to work really well. I have solid traffic growth that is gaining by 10-20% per day (this is focused targetted traffic). Nearly 50% of that traffic is ending up on my content locker page with the intent to download. I couldn't ask for better traffic and focused visitors. I am properly handling my referer by using the 3 website approach (website 1 is where I link to with parameters for website 2 (offer link) and website 3 - temp site prior to offer) so website 3 appears as the referer. Website 3 has links/ads that match what is on my content locker page.

    I basically need to

    1. Convert more people with my locker
    2. Consider different types of ads that are more appealing (the ones I have are super simple though)
    3. would love to do the zip approach (huge conversion) but don't want to get banned or caught too easily

    Would it be worth paying someone a small bit of money to go out to my offer with affiliate ID and do a complete fill of the 2nd page offer (whether its zip, email, etc..)? probably done with proxies?

    Just need some advice or opinions.

    Thanks everyone.

    small summary? Can't tell if you are being sarcastic or serious. What do you want to know?

    I was being serious.

    OP. Your best bet would be to get a site up and running. Simple WP. Probably copy another site as is. Throw in some youtube videos. Make it look legit. Then go out there and sign up with all the affiliate networks that carry Zip Submits. Maxbounty seems to have a lot of them.

    Spread yourself out across all networks. Not more than $30-$50/day with any single network in the beginning. You should stay under the radar for a while.

    Within a network, you have multiple advertisers, each with one or many Zip Submits. Pick one offer per advertiser and send traffic to only that. One way to find out if its the same advertiser is to ask your Affiliate Manager. Another way is to look at the Campaign Names. If they say YourFreeGiftZone iPad2 and YourFreeGiftZone Samsung Galaxy, then its the same advertiser. Don't run both offers. Sometimes its not as crystal. I look at the payout - One advertiser will generally offer the exact same payout for various Zip Submits. So if you see a bunch of $1.35 payouts strung together, they are probably from the same advertiser.
