    Hey,

    Kinda noobish/novice with some scripting languages, but was wondering if it was possible in anyway, to extract or collect the email addresses when they are entered into email submits and passed thru the cpa network company....
    so that I could collect the leads as well to sell or use for w/e BH I feel like.

    if this is possible could someone please point me in the right direction or give any advice

    thanks.

    Well, it would be possible given certain conditions. It would be fairly complex to code and the dependencies would lay on the way that the CPA offer was coded.

    Pretty much you would need to frame the offer, then make a detection script that checked when the iframe changes pages, when it changes pages you can get the url of the new page from the iframe. Now the problem comes in with the url of the new page will only contain the email variable submitted IF the CPA form is using the GET method instead of POST or some sort of AJAX solution. In my experience, very few CPA offers use the GET method.

    All in all I don't think the payoff would be worth the effort.

    Yea, a friend mentioned to me he was speaking to the GodCPA guy (iFraming tool) and he was mentioning that he was looking into adding this feature to a framed submit.

    The easiest way I can think of doing this is to collect the email of the visitor in a normal form and then pass on the email address to the next page and pre-pop the email submit box. Now ,this will only work with email submits that allow pre-pops.

    it should be worth it given that a opt in name can go from 0.3 to 1+. But given that specific emails will be available to so many mailers who is subscribing to that networks feed, I'd say that email is almost useless unless you mail it only once within 24 hours of that user subscribing to that feed.

    might give this a try, thanks.

    one thing i have been doing with iframed offers is after they complete the offer, i redirect them to an "error" page with an autoresponder form, saying that the form didnt work because of a database error or w/e... and they need to enter it again...is working halfassed anyway lol, users are completing the offer for a free report...then i'm using the autoresponder series to backsale similar products...

    Another option yet would be to put a field and some text above the framed email submit

    Above the first field put "Enter your email address" under that field but above the framed email submit you then put "Confirm your email address below".

    Then you could use javascript to grab the contents of the first field when they move the cursor away from that field and send it via ajax to php/mysql.

    This of course would take some knowledge of coding to make happen.
