CPA offers, why is there no direct linking to landing pages

    I have seen some fairly good landing pages for offers on MaxBounty. I would fill them out if I were interested in the offer. But all the affiliate tools show sample banners (a few, I think, even showed text ads that had worked) but there seems to be no direct linking.

    Is this because of Google? Does it matter if I would be getting traffic from DNTX or some other zero-click outfit? Is it the seller who says no because it is just easier with no direct linking (or to be compliant with Google)?

    Are there direct linking offers?

    It seems a little redundant to build a landing page to send them to another landing page (especially if it is only to fill out 5 or 6 fields of information. Or do you not build a landing page and just use banners on BuySellAds or something like that?

    How does having 2 LPs to a simple form offer help?

    Or am I even more lost on CPA than I thought. Are my assumptions wrong?

    I imagine the offers impose this to lower their legal risk.

    When you're direct-linking, the Display URL in the ads are usually that of the advertiser. If the affiliates are using misleading ads with direct-linking, most (that don't monitor the redirect hops) would assume that it's the advertiser's campaign. On the other hand, if a third-party landing page is being used, their URLs wouldn't directly show up in the ads; nor would the visitor be taken to it first. It basically gives the advertiser an "out" and allows them to point the finger at the affiliate, should there be any misleading advertising.

    For me, I just focus on the quality of traffic and traffic that much.

    For the landing page. It does require a custom that draws the eye to complete the survey.

    Some people succeed by offering free bermanfat things for others after they fill out the survey

    Do you use KW traffic only, or for zip submits do you just use any traffic from the country the offer is good for.
    So, if I want to do a address, email form for a wind $500 to help stop smoking offer (from Offersgonewild) would I just use traffic from the USA (that is where the offer is good) or would I go after KWs too. I was thinking of DNTX, I also thought I might throw some Instavisits visitors too, just to figure it out. that is 75% USA and the rest is from anywhere.

    ClickBank is probably the easiest, but some of their offers are using some dated landers, etc.
    MaxBounty is also easy to get into, they make it possible for new, inexperienced guys to break into the business.
    I like them.
    JVZoo is a no hassle sign up but I just went there for stop smoking offers and only 1 in 5 of the offers I clicked on had an LP, the rest went to 404 pages. They don't seem to keep very careful track of their inverntory. (BTW, same is sometimes true of ClickBank)
    There is Peerfly too.

    If your a new guy to IM, these are some good places to go because they will give you a chance to get started. they don't put a turd load of hurdles in your way.
    To look for offers, try OfferVault. but most of their offers have barriers, like experience and previous sales, to entry.

    There are literally hundreds of more that I have not tried and may not have heard of. So don't stop with these, somebody will give you a chance to sell a product you are interested in.

    Odigger is another place to explore offers.

    Hopefully some more experienced marketers will step in on this thread and give you a bigger, better list to work with.

    The hardest part is to get people to believe in you.

    Because they have to fill out the survey.

    So you have to provide benefits such as free ebooks, free software, or free gift to your loyal visitors.

    You can not burn visitors who have not been targeted to complete the survey, because they are not interested.

    here is a Giant list from Warrior Forum of traffic and offer providers. I haven't reviewed it but I at least knew some of the names on the list, so it could be a good source.
    Normally, I wouldn't put Warrior stuff up here because, frankly, I think it is beneath the dignity of BHW users to have dealings with people who pimp so much trash, but here it is anyway. It is free, and I did glance at it and it looks alright
