    I'm working on a website where I will have an eBook available for download in exchange for a survey. I also plan to promote CPA-offers in other ways later on, but this project need to be finished first, therefore I've been looking for a CPA-network with a good content locker/gateway.

    Have been looking at several programs, been approved by a couple of them, and now it's time to choose.. I'd like to hear the opinions of other more experienced CPA-promoters who have used content lockers/gateways. I'm going to receive international visitors, so it's important that the offers are available in as many countries as possible. The networks with content lockers I found and been approved by:
    cp*Le*d
    InstantsDollarz.c*m
    MGCash.c*m
    Leadbolt.com
    blvd-media.c*m

    *******, lots of offers, good pay, and ability to choose what offers to include. Drawback, they have no affiliate program, which I intend to make some money off through my site..

    InstantDollarz: Seems most interesting so far, they have lots of offers from many countries, I think they might be the network with most offers, good payouts and affiliate program.

    MGCash.com: Not that many offers, seems to be paying less/offer in general. Have a nice option to content lock already downloaded files through an .exe file they provide, good idea for torrents probably.

    Leadbolt.com is my big question mark, since their content locker comes as it is, you cannot edit what offers you will provide.. Don't know how much the offers pay out in general. They claim to have offers for most countries in the world.

    blvd-media.c*m: fewer offers, not as high payouts. Their content locker looks good though.

    Any advice welcome.

    An eBook I'm writing, a little bit secretive about my project right now. ;-)

    Anyhow, instantdollarz unlocked their offers, but it sucks, lots of toolbars and that kind of shit that's probably full of spyware, don't wanna push that on people, still have a certain sense of moral even though I'm close to ending up to the street now..

    Is ******* better? Problem is that I cannot see any of the offers, because I'm not in the US, so I just have to guess what will work, not very effective way to work.. If I would have designed the CPA-networks site I would have made it so that you could view the offers from anywhere in the world when you are logged in to their network..

    Unfortunately Adscendmedia which you guys recommend didn't approve me. I sent them a more detailed e-mail with how I intend to make money with them, we'll see if they reply.

    I'm tempted to go for LeadB*lt though, they seems to be serious and have lots of good offers.. Problem with their content locker seems to be that you cannot change what offers are showing.

    A certain sense of morality?

    Oh please. I don't believe that for a second. If you're going to get paid and your system is going to work, who gives a crap what you "push" on people. It's not drugs, you're not going to be wrecking people's lives.

    The second you leave your "morality" aside and go where the better offers and money is, the more successful you will be.

    Morality will hold you back.

    P.S. You do realise what Black-hatting is right? You're kinda supposed to leave your morals at the door here.

    Reading your post gives me the impression that you're completely without moral and as long as you can make a buck you won't hesitate to do whatever it takes, but somehow I don't believe that, because you say you wouldn't sell crack to people because it would hurt them. So you DO care what impacts your actions have in peoples lifes. The question is where do you draw the line? I don't interpret blackhat as being without moral. If I can make a buck selling services to people, and I have to spam inboxes and forums to find customers, that's no problem to me, but in the eyes of many people it might seem like a very immoral thing to do. My actions in that case doesn't really do any real-world impact and it's how things work, everyone knows it. I find spam quite funny, it doesn't bother me and can give you a good laugh now and then. But to fool people into downloading toolbars, which are probably full of software that will harm peoples computers, that's a different thing, and I rather not take part of that.. It's not selling crack, no. Wouldn't do that either.

    I might be wrong, but my experience of toolbars is that they completely f*ck up your computer. Using blackhat methods is one thing, deceiving is another.

    Moral is something personal, even though many people would like you to believe that certain things are always wrong. If you ask a fundamentalist Christian he'll tell you that all sex outside of marriage is wrong because his scripture told him that. Your personal moral compass might tell you otherwise, and then , listen to yourself. If it doesn't feel right, don't do it. I would never put my moral aside. Sometimes I've bent the rules, yes. Does immoral behavior get rewarded in our society? Certainly. If you're a big enough crook you could even end up becoming president somewhere. Do the president sleep well at night? Probably not. Money and happiness doesn't always go hand in hand.

    Have you seen K-Pax?
    If we had no laws and government and corporations we wouldn't be forced to do the stupid things we do to make money on the Internet either.. :) I find Internet marketing an extremely stupid and time-wasting game, but I'm in a situation where I must find a way to make a living, and this is the way of least resistance, and if I do it right, I might be able to take some time off and enjoy life in the real world. The thing that attracts me is that it's virtual, you can make a fortune selling information of all kinds, but I know it's not real, and I think that it's utterly stupid the more I learn about it. The people that are signing up for the CPA offers are probably not the brightest shining lights on this planet, and a fool and his money are soon parted. Money is all virtual, with no true value except the value humanity as a collective assign to it as well, so no harm done there. But if I'm responsible for someone getting a virus because i promoted it to them through a toolbar offer, I wouldn't feel good.. Do you understand my moral definitions better now?

    I have a very simple and short reply to you, I left morality behind, way back in 2007 and I've been making circa $100,000 for the past 4 years. It's all legal and taxed income. I keep just the right side of the very blurred line.

    Had I let morals get in the way, I'd still be posting to a forum like, just like you are right now.

    You say you're in a position where you "must find a way to make a living", and I'm saying morals will hold you back.

    Do you not get the point that being a part of a blackhat forum and asking for advice already defines what you'd be willing to do to achieve your aims?

    If you're going to get hung up on a very human and very intangible concept such as morality, you're never going to hit the heights that you seem to want to ascend to.

    The best of luck to you, but I still maintain: leave you morals aside and make some money. 99% of the succesful members here will have done the same.

    P.S. If you're aching about what toolbars do to people, you need a severe reality check! You are not holding a gun to their heads, shouting "INSTALL THE F*CKING TOOLBAR MAN! I NEED THE CASH!"

    You made all that money, but you ARE still posting to a forum. ;-)

    I see what you're saying, but I don't agree with you. Have a good idea I'm working on that's partly based on CPA income and if I can avoid toolbars, I will do that, I hate them ;-). But if it's not possible to remove them from the content unlocker, I'll probably take what I can have and hope that people can think for themselves and don't download any bullshit.

    The amount of money I do, or do not make is irrelevant to which forums I choose to post in. I'd argue that there's many on this site who have made much more than me who are extremely active.

    It's a repository for information, what I choose to do with it is my business.

    Irrespective, you've stated your case and you have a clearly defined definition, in your mind, of what you think is moraly acceptible and I'm just trying to explain to you that this may hold you back.

    In closing, do what you're comfortable with and what you, personally, consider to be ethically and morally good and right. Conscience can be a horrible thing.
