Called Neverblue Ads, but got the cold shoulder?

    So after a week and a half of reading about CPA, I decided to give it a try. I've been doing article marketing and PPC for about 1 year now and have quit IM multiple times because I just can't seem to get anywhere..

    Anyways, I read the threads on how to get accepted into CPA networks, so after I applied for Neverblue Ads I waited a good 36 hours before I called them.

    As I speak to the "receptionist" she tells me that I've been assigned an Affiliate Manager and she redirects me to him. I talk to him and I tell him that "I recently applied to your network as an affiliate, and was just wondering if there was any information you needed from me to help expedite the approval process"

    He seemed like a nice guy, and asked me if he could call me back in 10-15 minutes to go over the application.

    I told him that would be fine, even though I had to be at my 9-5 in 30 minutes. I waited a good 30 minutes before I finally left, and never heard from the guy. No calls, no messages, no nothing.

    Is there anything to this, or am I just being pessimistic?

    Unless you have a nefarious past (and the AM found it), it's likely he just got busy and forgot you. I'm not using NB, so can't speak with authority. But don't give up easily, and also don't forget there are MANY CPA networks out there.. just do a search here on BHW and you'll find plenty.

    But this particular case... call them again... this time he should owe you a favor.

    Thanks showbizvet,

    That was the first thought that crossed my mind. I've never done CPA before so I can't see him finding anything "bad" about me.

    I've also got a handsome list of all the good CPA networks thanks to a few threads here at BHW.. I've applied to a dozen of them, but so far only COPEAC has called me. I returned the phone call, but got an answering machine so I left a message, and never got a call back..

    Perhaps I need to call them again and be the squeaky wheel?

    Sounds like you might have just been impatient b4 work. Call them back, they forget too. Never had a prob talking to my AM there and it helps to do what you did, call, sometimes twice. I'm sure you'll get in. It took them two days to get back with me for approval, but was with no prob. Wouldn't worry too much.

    Calling them back would definitely show initiative.

    The like people who show some dedication and burning desire to run their offers.

    got approved for all the big ones I applied for this week. I didn't answer neverblueads phone call. called them back 5 days later. thaught I had everything ready. he asked what cpa companies I work with I said copeac so he asks me for my manager name :eek: I couldn't answer because I didn't get approved for it at that time (got approved 2 hours later for copeac) so I said could you hold please, then since I had workers in my house I got back on the phone and told him they broke something in my house and I needed to call him back. an hour later I got the approval. it was the first cpa phone call for me. After that I learned to just speak casual, make them feel comfortable and dominate the conversation.

    I tell them how I advertise my site and where I get traffic from. I tell them about my ebay experience and my EPN experience. they just want to know that you know seo ppc so you can advertise their offers.

    One more thing unlike the how to get approved threads on BHW. I applied anytime I wanted even at 3am. when they call I mention I'm a stay at home mom and run my business from home. and if my kids are making too much noise I'm ok with it.

    Maybe when I apply with my tax id for a second account I'll go for the professional company script;)

    Did you got a email in which you either got approved or denied? If not, call again, they probably forgot as stated above.

    Call them back. NB is one of the Big Dogz on the block.

    Be careful how you run your offers as well. If your WH fine.. But BH needs to be carefully protected, they do quality checks quite often from my experience.

    I applied for NB like 2 months ago, called them a couple of times but did go through to speak to anybody. After a week or 2 I got a call from them, following the same lame script questions (by the way it was my first CPA company to deal with) and I was accepted. So yeah, I think too that you need more patience. GL

    He probably got busy with phone calls and forgot to call you back. He may have put it on a paper to do and will get back with you at the end of the day. If not, give him a call back.

    Neverblue is good... started promoting a free offer, on copeac I would get 0.5$ per lead, on neverblue I get 1.5$ per lead on the exact same offer :eek:

    If I can get 100 people to do it, that's 100$ more. If I can get 1k, that's an aditional 1000$ :eek:

    It took me 2 and a half weeks for them to say something... just wait, and they'll call. As long as you don't get a refusal e-mail, you just have to wait.

    I was accepted by NB. They left me a voicemail and I returned the call and was accepted. If you can show a legit form of traffic, you don't have anything to be afraid of. If you make money, they make money.
