    Does anyone here worked directly with the advertisers?

    Since last year I'm giving this company 3000-5000 leads a month and they must be loving my traffic and it must be converting well on their end. Also never heard any complains about my traffic.

    If i want to work directly with the advertiser how do I approach them if I want more payout than what I'm getting with the CPA Network I am currently in now??

    Or Is it better to just use CPA networks for better tracking? Any thoughts?

    if they are paying on time and good, you should stay with them to keep away from un-necessary hassle.

    On the other hand, with that volume of good leads you should be getting top dollar. Go ahead and ask your affiliate manager for a raise in you payment for those offers.

    Excellent chance you'll get it.

    You're in a justified position to haggle for a better price from your affiliate manager. Threatening to switch CPA networks works real well.

    All CPA networks take a % from each lead. I mean advertiser gives you $2.5 for an eMail Submit, they will offer you $1.8-2, of course some will offer $1-1.2 just to bank more ;) If you want to promote an offer directly, just go to the landing page of your offer and contact them. Or research on google.

    Yes if your traffic is that good, just ask for better money.

    I would also suggests sticking with the network. The % you pay them from your earnings is very much worth all the trouble they are saving you from. Communicating with advertisers is a very tricky business, and networks do all of that​ for you. Stick with what works. Don't fix it if it ain't broke.

    You can easily work directly with an advertiser. But keep in mind, 95% of the time you will be paid out monthly net-30 until you push a few months worth of traffic and they verify that you're traffic is very good quality. Networks float payments 90% of the time. Plus advertisers usually don't pay on time, so be warned that you will need to send the advertiser an invoice every month, then wait 30 days to hopefully get your payment on time, that is if there was no rejected leads. Networks cover a lot of the hassle. If you want to take care of all of the hassle for 10 cents more, by all means.

    There are pros and cons of both.

    Some have worked with advertisers directly and came back to us. Sometimes they claim to even have better EPC's with us at Society Invite. While im not sure why this happens, it does. I can speculate that advertisers do have a form of scrubbing, and when we combine traffic with other affiliates there is a much larger pool so the advertiser is less likely to scrub the traffic.

    If cash flow is important, many advertisers pay net 30 while we pay weekly.

    1. Check your TOS that there isnt a non-competition clause (likely a way around it, but what you dont know hurts)
    2. Approach the advertiser like a business: whats in it for them to take on another point of contact with no increase in traffic (ie you subtract your traffic from CPA network & shift it directly is no net gain)
    3. Think about finding an additional way to monetize that same traffic instead of putting energy to get ??? extra net

    You can also try to contact few companies directly, they will pay much more for a lead if your traffic is legit.
    Just a suggestion.You can be your own CPA-network serving just yourself.

    Contact your affiliate manager and ask for more. Can't lose anything with doing so.
