    Hello there people

    I am trying my hand at promoting some CPA offers. I just got accepted into Adscend media.

    I like one of their offers but the banners they give out are horrible. The offer promoted a iPod Touch 64 MB and the landing page looks great.

    But, the banner they give is a blue button that simply says "Great offer". It looks awful.

    Can I put up my own image and then just link it to the offer. I tried to contact my account manager about this and there was no response. I guess they ignored me because I am small fish (as of now).

    Will be nice to get some advice here. I want to play by the rules and don't want to get banned or see my leads discounted because I broke their TOS.

    When it comes to CPA offers, promo material (if there is any at all) usually is horrible so creating your own banners if perfectly OK, and even encouraged.

    Don't use Adscend if you're doing non-incent promo though (which it looks you are since you're interested in banners). Adscend are an incent network and therefore their payouts are considerably lower than those of other networks.

    Thank you for your comments. Honestly, I don't get CPA marketing too well. You are right. This adscend media does not allow incentives. But, it says soft incentive is ok.

    I am currently promoting an offer for a free ipod touch which will pay a small amount for an email submit. What do they mean by no incentives. I mean, I just put a picture of a iPod touch and said free Ipod touch next to it and linked it to the offer page. Is that an incentive?

    Sorry for such as newbie post. I haven't done any CPA in the past. I also got denied by several CPA networks because I made the mistake of applying to them before my site got a lot of traffic. So, I have to work with Adscend for now.....
