    I tested out a survey offer that pays $5 upon completion, but get this- the user has to answer 10 questions. yes 10 questions. And these are stupid brain teaser questions. Who the hell is gonna complete all those steps? A joke

    Yeah they are very frustrating - but if the user wants your content bad enough they will complete it!

    don't forget the 10/month they have to pay with their phone ;)
    oh and don't forget that 3/4 will NOT get to your content even if they complete it correctly (its still the best cpa network tho)

    What were you expecting? 5 bucks for them to answer one single question?

    How exactly do you "test" out a survey from CPA lead? I just registered with CPA lead earlier today couldn't find out through there FAQ section. I went for the hell of it and clicked the link to the survey and completed it, only to find out what tricks did the survey had up its sleeve. After I completed, I actually got paid a buck something. I'm sure its against CPA lead rules to complete your own surveys. So how can I "test" these surveys without screwing up?

    People are making 1-5k a day on there so I would say they are not too big of a joke at all ;D

    It is, the censor filter doesn't detect it when you type it as 2 words, and the staff here sure doesn't like people doing that

    According to the website the EPC is less than I'm making with adsense. Not going to switch unless I do adult. but i cant see anyone doing a 10 page survey for porn.

    maybe i'll test it later but this seems like one of those things where you need tons of clicks to make good money.

    Yeah the idea of locking content and make users complete a survey sounded great to me until I actually tried one of their "surveys." Nothing is more annoying then offers in disguise. Unless your pushing shit tons of traffic with amazing content at the other end, they fucking suck.

    They have worked out for me, but there is a good amount of shaving going on. I mentioned it once in their chat room, and got banned for it.

    Wow you guys are making good bank. I guess I will have to look deeper into the surveys. They all seem like crap surveys, but I suppose it's all in how you present it...
