Can you be an honest person and also do CPA?

    Hi,

    I'm new to CPA, just got accepted into some cpa networks last week. I spent a couple of hours looking through the offers of one of the networks which is considered a top cpa network. To my surprise, I found that the vast majority of products come in one of four categories:

    1. unscrupulous companies with hundreds of complaints on the web of having charged people's cc's,

    2. skin products that don't work,

    3. free iphones/ipads/$1000 coupons which the user will probably never get,

    4. dating websites.

    Although no. 4 isn't perse dishonest, I am wondering why exactly they are willing to pay so much money for registrations. In any case, is it possible for someone who doesnt want to promote dating sites/porn and who wants to promote good products from honest companies to actually make a living from CPA?

    Or is it only the "loser" companies that need CPA for advertising to start with?

    Thanks in advance,

    No, there are hundreds of CPA offers that aren't shady rebills. Maybe you should find a product you want to promote and then looking for their affiliate program - rather than going to a massive broker?

    This offers are on a lot of cpa networks but if you want you can use one or more of them to convert into
    bucks

    Lead gen (you can also call it profiling how I did in the hacking world way before turning into an IM'er) while in general widely accepted as a fundamental "business" practice (and tolerated as such...) is and always will be in a gray ethical area: you've seen it for yourself -and don't even get me started with PPSale on the super-shitty CB products that's not technically CPA though- and I agree that the quasi-paradoxical outcome of this industry is that dating offers might be most legit form of it. At least you tend to "be gravitated towards" what you signed up for. They're prone to other forms of scams but that's a secondary issue potentially related but NOT directly implied with the very core of this kind of promotion. I think millions of ppl in the other areas you mentioned are still waiting for their iphones and freebies.. ;)
