    Basically run a Craigslist campaign. In my response email, send them to a blog where I have the CPA url link.

    This way I don't need to do the DMR, and customers are actually clicking through my website.


    Is there anyway they can track it came from CL? Also, what else should I be careful with when doing it this way?

    Thanks for your help on this one.

    Make sure you are driving your conversions down with junk traffic.

    Spread your conversions out among as many different CPA networks as possible...you can earn good money by just taking a little each day from each network.

    I don't think there is a specific number....but CL traffic converts very well for me (what little I have done). Sitting at 25% will raise suspicion.

    Keep your conversions around 5% or less and you will be safer.

    How much per day depends on the offer....if it is a low paying offer then stay under $20 - $30 and you will be good to go. Do that on 20 networks and you are making good money.

    Higher paying offers....have one or two conversions per day and no one should notice.

    This is all just opinion from some limited experience over the last few months....if any more seasoned vets want to correct me I would love to hear it!

    My offer pays out at $4.50

    Thanks for the help so far!

    If anyone else wants to weigh in, I would love to hear your advice aswell.

    are you sending the visitor straight to the offer or to your blog? if you're going to your blog, you probably won't have to worry about conversions being too high (unless you're using some bh method to force them) as everyone probably won't sign up.

    if you're going straight to the offer, you've gotta fake the referrer - use brad's cpa redirector to make sure people won't find out your leads are from cl
