    I can send decent traffic towards Zip Submit offers. For instance, for an iPad Zip Submit, I can do about 3000 clicks a day from people actually looking to win an iPad for free. All legitimate hits. All here in the States. 1 in 7, leave their Zip. EPC of about 20 cents on $1.50 payout.

    Problems are the same - scrubbed leads, abrupt requests to halt campaigns.

    I want to be able to maximize my profits. What should I do?

    Thanks.

    If the leads are legit... I don't see what the problem is.

    The only thing I would think of is to spread your traffic across a few different networks. Then contact your affiliate manager on the best converting one and tell them you can send loads more traffic if they can handle it and are willing to pay.

    Where is your traffic coming from? Honestly nearly all submit advertisers shave. But the bigger thing you need to realize is, if they are asking you to halt your campaign just like that, then your leads are obviously not making them money. If it was making them money, they would want you to keep going, so the quality of you're leads isn't good enough. Think about where you're getting traffic from, and how to improve them. Maybe the offer is a 1st page submit, and you should switch over to a 2nd page submit. Obviously you will get less $, but it would be more stable and long term.

    My Traffic is strictly through email campaigns. Abrupt halts are rare, so the quality is decent. One campaign I've done over $5K in sales in the last couple of months. Some other campaigns, a little lesser. Scrubbed leads are very common.

    I guess my question is how best to optimize here?

    Spreading across networks makes sense. It increases my time commitment, but I can deal with that.

    Can I use some of the BHW services where they send traffic from all around the world to a particular link --- 10K unique page visits for 10 bucks or something --- to increase my True EPC and beat the scrubbing?

    Any other ways to optimize?

    Depending on how its tracked and what filters are on the backend, sending junk traffic can potentially hurt you because some sites might flag their fraud filters.

    Spreading it is your best bet. Make sure you're CAN SPAM compliant. Do everything right on your end and don't get complaints.
