    Adscend Media rejected me. it was my first time applying for a CPA network, and it really got me down. feel like giving up. my site is (almost) ready to go, and it's only going to work with a content locker... otherwise there's no point to it.

    all they said was that i didn't give them enough information. so why didn't they ask me for more instead of just rejecting me straight out?

    is blam ads harder to get into? i thought adscend was easy... obviously not.

    feeling depressed now. i sent them an email back as well, giving them a piece of my mind, which was probably the wrong thing to do, but i read the rejection email when i was drunk.

    how the hell am i supposed to get experience when i can't get accepted??

    blehhhh! :(:(:(:(:(

    In all honesty, for every 1 network that rejects you there are 2 that are likely to accept you. Just my personal experience. Get accepted with a few of those networks, get a little experience and retry adsend later after you've got a few networks under your belt.

    Good luck man, keep your head up

    don't take getting rejected personally, otherwise you're gonna have a hell of alot of hurt coming throughout your IM journey..

    rejection is just a learning experience, instead of blasting them for rejecting ya, ask them why then the next time you apply for an account use your learnings and you'll get accepted.. worst thing for you to do is to give up before you get anywhere..

    thanks for the encouragement, everyone :)

    i won't give up, i'll just apply for a few more networks over the weekend. but the site i spent five days making is now going to go to waste if i can't get into a network with content locking.

    anyways, i'm working on another site as well, so i'll keep going with that one.

    thanks guys! :)

    and i agree with you, it probably isn't a big deal, but i just hate being rejected!

    Contact Jeremy_AM He is an AM for Adscend Media. Ask him the reason for rejection and explain clearly about your promotional methods.

    Don't worry that's common for everyone when they start CPA. First you may apply some newbie friendly networks such as MaxBounty and PeerFly.
    Always call the networks after applying, that will increase the chance of getting approved.

    Oh noez, everything is lost now. I mean about the drinks you had. As for the CPA, damn, you are like my little cousin. If he gets rejected by a girl, than oh boy, he thinks that that's the end of the world. As he got another girl in no time, better and which converted like crazy, so you will find a better CPA network. Maybe it's their loss, or maybe the one who rejected you was also drunk. You'll be ok in no time buddy, hang in there, don't give up!

    Look at it this way...
    When I get rejected I tell myself "They lost out on my great services" and move on...

    CPA are not really strict as you think, you just gotta know them, try CPA Bull (ronywilliam is part of the team) and I'm sure you'll get get into some CPA sites, it's easy, just read the threads how to get accepted into CPA, call CPA etc.

    if you apply to one network and get rejected, it's not a big deal.
    if you apply to 10 networks and get rejected from all of them, then you're doing something wrong

    it's all about sample size ;)

    adscendmedia and cpla lead approved me few weeks ago.

    It would be a good idea to think of an idea before you apply, because that's pretty much the most important thing, you need to promote your idea, so the one that's reading your application will get interested, there's not a worse thing to do than just writing "I have a good idea, that'll make me alot of cash"
    You have to promote it, like really make it interesting, this is a example of a way to promote the idea.

    example 1:

    "I have this great idea, that I think will get me alot of cash, I'd like to share it with you, so you can judge whether I'm good enough for adscendmedia or not.
    I have great experience in muscles and fitness, and how to eat right, so the idea is basically making a site, write a ebook, and offer it on the site, but in order to get to the download content, they'll have to fill the survey.
    I think the idea sounds good, what do you think?
    I think it can get me alot of cash, as many peoples on the internet is interested in getting muscles, and eating right, I will spend alot of time and cash on promoting it, I have great experience in SEO"

    example 2:

    "Hi, I intend to promote your ads using a range of online marketing techniques. I
    am an online marketing expert and I will be using email marketing, article
    marketing and social network marketing to promote the products. Furthermore, I
    will be promoting your products on my blog and my website [your url] and will
    generate traffic using a range of PPC methods geared towards different niches. I
    look forward to work with you and promote more of your products."

    change those words that do you think it is not related to your niche.

    I hope it helps. Update this thread when they approved you with this method..


    ENJOY! GOODLUCK MATE!

    CPA Bull....what an appropriately titled piece of software. It advertised that you could submit to 150 networks yet upon actually using it it only submits you to like 30 or so. When a company blatantly deceives people like that right off it rubs me the wrong way.

    Hopefully they 'fix' that soon.

    Besides that, manual submission is definitely a better way to go.

    Networks will reject you for little or no reason. Just keep the motivation high, theres money to be made and you have to go get it. Nothing about any of this stuff will be easy, it's all trial and error.

    i got rejected by surehits because the $200 custom surehits tailored theme apparently was too cookie cutter for them :(

    site design and uniqueness is just as important.

    thanks everybody. the next one i apply to i'll try and explain better, what my plan is. i did tell them how i was going to get the traffic to my site, but i suppose i should have gone into more detail.

    i told them i was going to have a facebook page, and get people to my site from there. and i'll also be posting videos online, and getting people to my site from there as well. i thought that's all i would have to tell them. clearly not.

    thanks everyone! i'll keep trying!
