    hey guys im new here,

    been in the internet marketing business a few years now and only recently ive tried my hand at cpa.

    im a member at copeac and ads4dough. ive tried numerous email submit campaigns with both networks and have sent 100s of people through to the offers in each of my campaigns. 100s of people are submitting their emails but im not being credited with a lead for any. i even tried submitting emails by proxy to see if it was working and i still wasnt given a lead. ive spent $100s on advertising and should have made $1000s in return yet i havent made a thing (well i made around $3 on one campaign, even though i had recieved hundreds of email submits).

    my AM said to me "some offers have strict filters", but literally 1000s of people have submitted their emails and i havent made a cent.

    any ideas what is going on? i really need the help

    thanks

    If you say you have hundreds of emails submitted thus actual registered leads that show up in your stats when you're logged in then that should be showing you results in the column labeled with "Total" as well.

    Results in the "Clicks" column doesn't mean a submitted email...a completed action.

    when i filled emails in using a proxy i monitored my stats page to see what effect it had. as i entered my email address and clicked submit it was registered as a 'click' and not a 'lead'. so thats how i know theyre submitting emails, the only time i get a 'click' is when someone submits their email. so all these clicks showing up should actually be leads.

    any ideas? cheers

    all the emails being submitted are being counted as clicks. i know this as i have monitored my stats everytime ive submitted emails through a proxy. everytime i enter an email adress its registered as a click. so i know emails are being submitted, there just not being counted as leads, just clicks instead.

    this is so frustrating, thanks for the help in advance

    Lol..

    Click = Someone hitting your CPA landing page
    Lead = Someone entering their email address

    You sure it pays out on 1-field//first page? Sometimes they have to fill out more than that for you to get paid.

    just switch offers and/or networks

    i dont understand the thinking of some of these advertisers sometimes. they expect people to send them leads, then they pull BS like scrubbing like this, and do they expect people to still send them traffic? people are not stupid, they will pause the campaign and send the traffic to a different offer and that advertiser will never get any more than a handful of leads that way before the publisher notices its not profitable.

    i agree maybe the problem is that, also try different networks and see if the same keeps happening
    some companies do tell you how many pages needed to be filled and when do you get paid ( 2 page, 3 page..etc..)

    i asked my AM for a list of 1st page offers and the same happened, no leads being credited. guess ill just have to join some more networks and see how that goes.

    If this is happening with Copeac i would contact Mike Crongel to get this sorted, with the amount of leads you say you generate scrubbing that of a large amount doesn't sound like how Copeac or Ads4Dough operate.

    Scrubbing happens with all the networks, but this sounds more like excessive shaving and that's just not the type of practice i expect from these two kick ass networks.

    Here's one for ya, I had 10 different family members scattered throughout the US go to a simple sight I set up and asked them to click on a banner for experiment. They were all interested in the offer anyways so, no foul right. Easy $70 bucks I thought before I pushed it real hard.

    It was a simple 6 field register that payed $7 on first page submit and limited to 50 leads a day for new fire's. Keep in mind 50 leads, not clicks.

    All different IP's, emails, last names etc.

    Neverblue only counted - 1

    Now who's shaving, neverblue or the advertiser - that is the question?

    To bad somone couldn't come up with a code/program that Identified the shaver, then we'd know who to go to. How much is being sniped from our efforts.

    Something that would track who pulled the OKEY DOKE!

    I know it's close to christmas and all, but these guy's are getting ridiculous.
