    Now there are two steps to do in order to bank with CPA.

    1. Get traffic (e.g. youtube)
    2. Convince that traffic to actually click your link, do the survey and get to download the file.


    Convining is the key here. But till today, I have no idea...

    The more they want the content the more they are willing to make the survey.

    So the key is your content and how you present it, simple as that.

    Fake content.
    If the user didn't pay his money 99% times he will never complain.

    Depending in what niche you're in, you must look for the true gem that ppl want it, for free.

    Do some keyword research with YT keyword tool, look for what people are searching in YT and resolve around one of their biggest needs.

    You can either give a fake thing, or take more time and develop something of value, put your creativity at work.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for your reply bro. I know that. But what do you tell them so that they want your fake content?

    Surveys suck. ~30% of my traffic is going to surveys (because geo targeting didn't find real offer for them) and less than 1% from that actually complete the survey. It just doesn't work, no matter what the content is or how bad the wanna see it (conte locked - incentive traffic). The only thing that converts really well with content locker are simple things like first page email submits of some freebies (giftcards and such)

    I was actually thinking about sending all non us/uk traffic to youtube for view increasing because the stupid surveys are waste of traffic.

    You can try using Social Media Networks instead of Youtube to get traffic since they convert really well.

    I'm confused. Aren't surveys = offers literally? Let's say you're doing PPD. What the user sees before the download = survey (which ARE offers in detail?)?

    You are right actually.. Surveys are so 'saturated' that people are done with them, no one fills such and since surveys are not in the domain of interest, I mean they are not like iPhone offers, that doesn't make it any better.

    I'd suggest to, either promote individual offers that are proven to convert or do PPS (affiliate marketing).

    Promoting offers would mean that I should try to convince the user that the promoted offer is worth it, right?

    Yeah, you are right, what I meant is surveys are typically used in case when the original offer (specified in you link) is not available in the visitor's country or is expired. That's why I don't consider them real offers, I have never seen anyone willingly promoting them, they are just a "last resort" when the network doesn't have anything better to display.

    So did I get it right:

    Is it better to make a landing page about the promoted offer? (Let's say FREE iphone 5). And on that page I should convince them to complete that offer?

    It very much depends on your traffic and the offer. What you said - creating you own landing page and from that linking to the real offer - is usually called a presell, which means convincing and motivating the user to complete the offer. Sometimes it's good to not confuse the users and send them directly to advertiser's landing page (some of these LP are really good, you don't need anything else) and in other cases it's better to do a little more work and motivate the user before sending him to the final landing page (e.g. email submits - that's usually only a form with some pretty pictures, not very much explaining why you should complete it).

    btw split and test everything.

    Thank you so much. I learned a lot from your words, better said, you cleared so many things that confused me all the time.
    There's still one more thing.

    What do you say is better?

    Going the PPD way, so that on my landing page in convince them to download a file (which will bring me profit),
    or forgetting PPD and just doing this: YouTube > Landing Page > Offer

    What do you say? What's more profitable in your eyes?

    With PPD I could give them my own stuff (files etc) whilst linking to an offer actually depends on how good the offer is.

    There was a thread about this, PPD is usually easier to get in compared to CPA network, so it's better to use it for low quality traffic or things which are not allowed to do with CPA networks. If you get banned from PPD you just register another account, no big deal, but if you get banned from CPA network you would have to use another name or something, also there is usually a phone call required etc which makes it difficult.
    In conclusion - don't cheat CPA networks, it's not worth it :)

    There's no reason to go make a landing page if you're doing PPD and youtube.

    The video is there for a reason. Use the video to get their interest level higher and they'll do the offer.
    But if I were you, I'd do content locking, got myself a 0.53 epc with CLP.

    So when I do PPD + YouTube, I have to convince them in the video so that they want to click the link and download, right?
    And content locking is for Youtube > Landing Page > File or Offer?
