    I was just reading a report on CPA marketing from someone who's considered a reputable internet marketer.

    This is what he had to say:

    "The CPA industry has become so competitive that networks will go to extreme
    lengths to keep their top affiliates by supplying them with what they want.

    I am referring to sex, drugs and you name it.

    I have had CPA networks tell me that they have to offer these things in order to compete.

    Seriously.

    Getting into the CPA game has no barriers to entry and virtually anybody with a computer and credit card can start driving traffic within minutes to a CPA network.

    That is why a lot of super affiliates are young guys who are making a ton of money. Some CPA networks know what motivates young guys and cater to their needs. I can see young guys easily ruining their lives by getting caught up in the rock-star lifestyle that a lot of money from this business can bring."


    Is this shit true? Anyone here been incentivized by a CPA network offering them sex and drugs?

    Shit that made me laugh.

    I've never been offered when I was working with CPA but I've never been a top affiliate because I spread my money around various networks to stay under the radar.

    Yes, they offer. Super Affiliate means - you make around 100k volume per month / minimum. So - it means also, you generate minimum 50-60k revenue + corporate image by the advertiser. So, for 50-60 - what is a hooker?

    I know a guy, 19 years old, make 250k per month. So, this article is %100 true - they just ruin their lives.

    Any 19 would go crazy with 250k per month.

    Surely those affiliates that earn millions can afford a proper model themselves rather than shagging some free dirty hooker. If this is true then its quite sad. If somebody is switching to a different affiliate then there is a reason behind it. I don't think hookers or drugs would stop somebody from making that switch and earning extra 5%/year or whatever.

    This is not uncommon in many competitive businesses, it is not reserved for cpa.
    Many strip joints offer to charge your corp credit card under a sister company that does not sound as seedy so you can entertain/party with clients and not let the whole world know you are buying them lap dances.

    The top affiliates GET their OWN hookers...And not from the network lol - Haven't heard of a CPA network that sent in an escort for their top affiliate. Some of the IM'ers I know of are dirt. They shag hookers on a regular basis.

    CPA networks give out free shit to affiliates that are too stupid to realize instead of smiling at their new plasma TV gift they should've been asking for a better payout.

    If I made 250k a month I would not give much of a shit about some random hooker.
