    I have joined couple of networks last month and I am using a Download + Password (rar) -> Website + content locker METHOD :p.

    I mainly use Sharecash because they have the best payout ratio's from what I see:

    So I have created 10-20 downloads for each of the following network:

    • Sharecash
    • CPAl€ad
    • LeadBolt
    • MGCash
    • Dengee
    Now from what I have noticed the last days and weeks.

    Sharecash (best IMO)
    CPAl€ad, have used them just for 2 days ($1.80, hmmm, $.8 for 1 lead : is that good?)
    Leadbolt: 8$ in 1-2 weeks
    MGCash ($3.3)
    Dengee (the worst IMO, they say they have 5$ payouts for every submit, $1.3 until now)


    I heard that SMS submits (90% of content lockers are sms submits) have an avg. payout of 10$, so the CPA networks give a certain % of that payout. I know some networks give 50/50, but the reason people hate sharecash is that theirs payouts are extremly low, I have seen other sides of sharecash, I have had many times conversions of 1.8$ for 1 download, while the other networks range from $.20-$.80 / conversion, haven't seen higher

    Sharecash also gives you like $0.60 for a submit that gets you $1 when you're on a network. So they are taking a pretty big cut.

    Best locker is your own locker :)

    Leadbolt has been much better to me than Sharecash has ever been.

    My own offers??
    How does that work then, haven't seen that on BHW discussed before.
    Or is it something like: Choosing a content locker from e.g Leadbolt and customizing the offers to display??

    With your own locker you can essentially add any offer you want from any network... networks like Leadbolt that have their own gateway/content locker tend to pay less than those which don't have them (probably because the traffic coming from a content locker is less valuable than ones that are more voluntary) so you can earn more by using other affiliate networks.

    However, this may well be against their terms and conditions so you have to be careful. That being said, if you use Content Locker Pro which is sold on this forum, you can blank where your traffic comes from anyway!

    Well, instead of sayin "noob", say something like:
    I recommend you to use... :)D)

    thanks


    btw, yes I am a noob, but atleast I'm a noob that does earn money thanks to BHW :D
    --

    EDIT: I will stop using sharecash these days (maybe tomorow, maybe the day after tomorow), I got like a $5.3 payout for just 1 Lead (survey on my ContentLocker). And that is everything compared to Sharecash, That is the bigges payout I have ever seen!

    IMO, If Sharecash is working for you, then use it right now to make the money that you can use later to invest in. Honestly applying to CPANetworks and learning to manage your own offers on the content locker and testing is a lot more work compared to just point click on Sharecash.

    What I would do (It's what I did too!) Is start proportioning your time reading about CPA and the other half doing what you're doing now to make money. It's a different game, not like sharecash once you get into CPA :).

    Good Luck!

    Having your own locker:

    What does this mean?

    Basically you are the network. Networks like leadbolt etc broker offers from advertisers and allow you to use their content locker and pay you a % per conversion. They are basically the middlemen, meaning you lose maximum earning potential.

    If you have your own locker you can add any offer you want from a variety of CPA networks which offer higher payouts per offer. You should use offers that are allowed to be incentivized to avoid being banned by your cpa network (it will either say if offer is allowed to be incent or not, if not just ask your AM) although this is BHW and you can easily incentivize any offer you like and make more monies :)..

    How to make my own content locker?

    Well there are a couple of options here:

    1) Pay someone to code your own locker.
    2) Pay for Meathead1234 content locker (check his thread out here)
    3) Use a free locker (theres a thread on BHW offering a free content locker here)

    Conclusion:

    If your looking to make the maximum out of your users, then your own content locker is the only way. It may take abit of time setting up, but in the long run its more than worth it. If you are just starting out in the incent world, then sign up to places like leadbolt, blamads, adscend media, cpale@d, mgcash, whitefire etc.

    ENJOY!

    Thank you for all the tips & information you guys provide!!!

    Well I know already one thing that these companies such as Sharecash, Leadbolt, etc... they are just a medium between the Users & the Advertising Companies, so (I)/we lose a lot of money using them... but if we create own content lockers directly from those Advertisers/Publishers we take the big money without any cuts.

    I know that already, so... where do I find those advertisers... is it companies such as CPAWAY, that provide these Incentive CPA leads?

    I have been accepted by Adscendmedia (4th attempt) Yesterday! And I started using theirs File locking gateway. (for the password file). So the content locker is Hostend on THEIR website...

    Less than 12 hours passed since I uploaded some stuff, but I only have 7 leads total ($9.25 balance), the $$ is very good compared to other networks!!!!!
    BUT, I do not get that many conversions, I have already 10+ conversions on sharecash, and only 7 on Adscendmedia, could this be due to people do not like the website from Adscendmedia? (To me it does look too empty spaced/too white)...

    Maybe I should host it on my own website with a simple & clean landing page + content locker???

    what u guys think

    Your conversion is extremely high, I usually get 10 conversions per 300 clicks.

    I use sms lockers right now, as you can put your own cost of unlock and period that people can spend after they subscribe with sms. I like to make it appear after several time.
