    I mean we all have conscience,dont we?
    some of our techniques involve luring the visitors to get something and then fool them around to earn us money.
    Today i was doing such a trick,but it hurts me a bit when i send them emails to fill out my cpa offers and all. I mean luring porn watchers is ok because those are just jerks.
    My conscience pricks me because these are hard working people but on the other side it doesnt cost them any money.Just a few minutes.
    So its like a battle within me.
    hav u experienced such a situation before?:(
    i am totally confused.
    I would like a word of advice from you experienced guys because this dispute is costing me lot of money because it has happened with me many times that started a campaign or trick and then left it in middle because i didnt feel like cheating or luring them into cpa.
    pl. advice and sorry for the long post.

    I know how you feel. This how you resolve it. Find something you hate. For example I hate soap operas,therefore soap opera fans are my "customers" :) Do you think Paris Hilton is a dumb broad? Do you think Paris Hilton`s fans are even dumber than her? You get the point.

    I often feel guilt when knowing that some people is working hard and I'm literally is stealing their commissions and at the same time spending most of my day's on the sofa watching TV. What I get hit by the guilt I most often go to my PP and check the stats. Seeing the money keep ticking in makes all the guilt goes away and I feel kind of happy instead and can go back to my sofa.

    *lol*

    Well.. This was actually not true. I work hard for the money and so does most of us in one way or another. To be a BH marketeer doesn't mean that one have to fool people to make money. One can use and choose various techniques and just go as far as once consciousness let one. I myself is using some BH techniques to drive traffic and I do cloak some of my sites. Nothing wrong in that and is making the conversion somewhat more secure for the visitors that comes to my sites by offering them cookies, who can blame me? We all do what we can to make a living and I don't care if it's BH or WH techniques as long as I don't break my own norms and rules. I don't steal and one doesn't have to for making money online.

    And if that doesn't work for you... Just check the the stats on your PP and you will for sure feel a lot better as a BH then a WH marketeer. ;)

    it's a dog eat dog world. if you don't think the cpa networks are fucking you without batting an eye than think again. just think of your "customers" as the first in line to get fucked. you are last. volume is where profit comes from. just think of it that way.

    Conscience is imaginary :) It is just rooted into your mind because society says what is wrong and what is right. If you would not be raised this way, you would not have conscience.

    Yeah, honestly, I couldnt scam people for real money. It just sucks. Spamming people though, I don't have any problem with it.

    And as for scamming the affiliate programs / merchants, I don't plan on doing it forever, and they can afford a couple of ks. I don't feel bad at all. They make so much anyway. And in the long term, I bet I will make them a shitload of money.
