    Hey guys I've recently been making some money for craigslist with a job network cpa offer. I usually get 1 or 2 conversions per post that I manually type up and submit. I was wondering what other kinds of CPA offers that you were promoting were profitable. (Ex. Dating, Ringtones, etc.)

    Thanks,



    John

    $1-$1.50 per lead. I then promote a site via craigslist that is loaded with these offers. I can't give specific details cuz its from an ebook my friend purchased here and I will get banned. sry :(

    Do you use proxy's to submit the offers? Have your AM's gave you any crap about the sources?

    if you put a link in an ad for them to type directly shouldn't the AMs be happy as its considered to be "ok" traffic cuz its direct. if u make it a link from cl then they will see where its coming from. but if u make them type it is that organic?

    Yeah, most networks frown on CL traffic...so make sure you cloak where the traffic is coming from. Also, getting back to your original question (notice how we all got off topic). I'm finding that the following categories work well on CL:

    1. Biz Ops
    2. Dating Offers

    I've not tried ringtones or any other type offer on CL.....but i guess I could think outside the box and try to promote something else there.....

    Just my 2 cents

    No. I dont use proxies because I live in the area where I am posting. My affiliate manager doesn't know because I send organic traffic from craigslist to my site where the link is. Another good offer to promote via craigslist that I found yesterday was Hostgator. They pay $100 per purchase of any hosting plan. I am trying to write up an ad copy that would look good on craigslist. I might post it up here after I'm done writing

    Hostgator is great as an affiliate program....however, they hold off payment for 2 month (60 days) before they pay you.

    Is there really going to be a big market for website hosting services on Craigslist?

    Obviously, testing is the only way to find out and I respect you for your desire to try it, but I highly doubt many people think Craigslist when they are in the mood to find internet hosting solutions.

    @stunna: I'm just looking for more opportunities. I am already making a consistent income on craigslist with cpa offers. I am going to test it and see what happens. I will post back l8r today or tommorow after I make some posts.

    interested in what ur promoting jbryant. i too use CL and am getting about $1.25 per lead.

    i get the CL reader to go straight to my site via a link and use a double meta refresh to hopefully confuse my AM.

    just started posting CL ads last night and have made $25 so far in about 18 hours with 5 posts in 5 SMALL cities. About to go postal and do about 20 cities and see what today brings.

    sprinklin' some junk traffic for sure

    Yes, I've finally been successful just this week with CL. I hit my first $100 days (2 days in a row) with very little work using a CPA for $1.50 per signup. What I'm doing is pretty black hat and I'm just waiting to get busted. LOL not sure how long I can go... but I'm up to $500 in 7 days. But I post my CL ad which has a link to my detour website (of if they ignore the link and email I have an autoresponse with the link). I'm at about a 47% conversion which I think is much too high, but haven't had luck lowering it. (I've been at $0 for 2 months now and suddenly have a $500 week... I'm afraid of raising eyebrows). I sent an email to my AR saying something like "Hey, I've finally had time to start doing some promotions and look at the results!" hoping that will calm any suspicions)

    So the link from the CL goes to a detour site, which double metas to the site I'm supposed to send traffic from. I'm very excited because this is the first time I've got anything to work well. I'm tasting victory and have no intention of going back to a $0 balance again... but I'm working on getting a little more white hat so I don't have to keep looking over my shoulder. :)

    I would tell you guys more about what I'm promoting, but it seems that I have very few competitors at the moment for this niche and I don't want to lose my good thing after only 1 week. But the decoy site definately seems to make my CL ads stick whereas before (when posting to the same sections in CL) I got ghosted all the time. I'm not even changing my ips or email address... but I don't post more than 9 ads in 3 cities in a 24 hour period. And every ad is written on the fly so it will be somewhat different than the others I have posted... no duplicates.

    Hope some of that might help someone.
