    I have not been in this forum for very long but it seems there is a lot of discussion relating to CPA and using black hat methods to acquire the leads.

    I am not concerned with whether the leads provide legitimate or illegitimate information but what seems to be the most important thing is whether the overall leads for the CPA offer convert well.

    I imagine using BH methods with CPA will results in very low or even 0 conversions, what I would like to know is how you avoid any problems and stay under the radar with the CPA networks if your conversions are very low, how do you avoid your offers beeing canceled or even you CPA account being
    banned due to such poor conversions?

    The obvious solution to me is to promote many cpa offers under one account and spread your traffic out over many different cpa networks so you are making very small amounts of money with each network, are there any other solutions to this problem?

    Thanks
    Stephan

    I have been in the CPA Industry for many years and have never had an account of mine cancelled due to poor conversions.

    However, if you want to be safe, you are correct in stating the obvious solution with spreading your traffic across different CPA networks.

    Now go out there and make yourself some cash!

    Try many different offers under the same niche, and do split testing. It's not likely that you'll get banned outright for poor conversions, your AM may ask you to stop promoting that particular offer first.

    I see, so if your AM doesnt contact you to cancel what your promoting, does it mean its good to go? Or are there any cases that a CPA company will ban your account without any notice whatsoever because of poor conversion?

    In extreme cases you could get banned immediately for fraud (if there are a lot of fake information filled out) or perhaps if your AM contacts you and you do not respond at all.

    black hat methods doesn mean to have fake info, if you get smart enough you can have legit info, even if the offers dont convert you can use those profits to invest in some ppc from 2nd tier search engines and have like 10% or even 20% convertion rates, that should do it, if you go black hat on everything is most likely that you will get banned sooner or later mix it up and you can have a good long term business

    I just tried a new email submit offer by blackhat, paying $1.5 per lead. On my first day I earned $300 more or less with 60% conversion rate. I then stop promoting it. So if no one converts from those leads, will I be banned? Im in constant contact with my AM and telling him I do email campaigns.
