    My AM is a very busy guy and can take a week for responses so figured I'd ask here.

    But yea just curious if Peerfly allows any type of offline marketing? I haven't started a campaign with them yet.. I'm kind of paranoid to be honest cause they seem so strict. Seems everyone on Peerfly is doing PPV/PPC methods.

    I was kind of hoping to do an offline method to test the waters and build up a small income and use that money to run ad campaigns.

    I'm 50/50 weather they allow offline or not. I mean, they really won't know where your traffic is coming from because I won't be directly linking to the offer, just a landing page that sends them to the offer... they could just assume everyone found my landing page via FB or CL (which is not the case) and just ban me for the hell of it? Maybe I'm just being paranoid? I really want to try this and take action but my paranoia is getting the best of me lol and like I said my AM can take a week to get back to me

    Have you thought about running the traffic with a different network where you can get in touch with an AM more easily? From what I understand ******* if very willing to try unusual traffic sources if you run it by them first. The truth is, with most networks, as long as the advertiser is happy with the traffic they don't really care where you get them from.

    If you want to stick with peerfly, have you tried calling your AM instead of emailing? this will get you instant results. Maybe try calling/AIMing/emailing their Traffic Manager/Compliance guy. All the info is on the peerfly contact page.

    every offer has different restrictions. if it not in the restrictions then i don't see why not. go for it!
    plus, like you said, if they're hitting a landing page first they're not going to know where the traffic originally came from.

    just be careful in regards to your CL comment as many offers don't allow classified ads so if you're trying to cover something up don't use CL as an excuse.

    having said that, i think you're just being overly paranoid :D
    i'm new at all this too and often feel the same but am learning that you've gotta just go for it, you're not going to progress if you don't just DO. you're not talking blackhat so hopefully they'd question you before banning and you can just tell them that you didn't know and it won't happen again. be honest. and seriously, the very worst case is that they ban you then just move on to a new network. you're not gonna get in trouble with the law so stop being such a pussy jk :silly:

    Some campaigns allow it but you have to get approval. You can contact me on AIM (Corey[@]PeerFly.com) or email me and I'll let you know if what you plan on doing would be allowed. :)

    Thanks for those encouraging last words! lol. But yes, all this will be whitehat offline stuff. Seems to have less competition. No way in hell would I risk using CL cause they specificly state it isn't allowed. Will try PPV/PPC methods once I get a small budget going from offline.
