    Hello all,

    I'm fairly new to this game, but I have several killer ideas for offline marketing using CPA promotions. My only concern, however, is that my methods for driving traffic will obviously generate extremely high (95%+) conversions -- since if someone bothers to type in the URL from a flyer or business card describing the offer, they will almost certainly complete the process. So, my questions are as follows:

    1) Will the high conversions be a problem for the network? I have to imagine that seeing such high conversions from a new signup, they would assume I'm simply entering fake leads myself through proxies and ban me quick -- before I get paid, of course.

    2) Will working offline in general be a problem for the networks, on the whole? Are there some networks that explicitly allow / disallow offline marketing, and which ones would these be?

    3) I'm in a major metropolitan area, and there are several large universities nearby. I plan to do some of my marketing on these campuses. The problem is that several of these campuses have large, free wi-fi networks for their students and guests -- so a great deal of my traffic will come (from the network's POV) from the same IP or IP range. Will this be a problem?

    Thanks in advance. These forums have provided me with a ton of great information so far, and with these final pieces to the puzzle I'll be on my way. I promise to pay you all back with my ideas if they work out :)

    in my opinion you'll be fine just explain what you're doing to them and they'll understand the high conversions, you probably won't even have to explain until they start asking. and as long as the leads you are sending them are converting on the advertisers end, which they will, you will be 100% okay.

    i dont think there sohuld be a problem with offline marketing since you are still bringing real people that are interested in offer. At least in my case it was everything ok.
