I just started with CJ about 2 months ago. I began by posting direct links on Craigslist (which I did not know was against the rules at the time). In my first day I made $150 with just 10 posts. I then did nothing for 3 days, and made $80, $60, and $60 respectively. They questioned me about it, and I was honest with them. I told them I was new to this, and that I didn't know it was against the rules to use CL. I also told them not to pay me, that I was working on website so I could do things the right way. I even told the merchant that I expected the leads to be reversed. They still sent me my check. Anyways, here's the important part. I've been talking with my merchant, and they said that they have NO PROBLEM with me using CL, as long as they approve my ads, and my landing pages first. They've already approved my method. CJ also said they have no problem with me using CL, as long as my website doesn't simply redirect to the merchant's site, and that (this is their exact words) I should keep that in mind while I'm building my site. I'm facing a little bit of a dilemma here. On the one hand, I can try to get full approval from CJ. If they approve my method, which it sounds like they might, I can immediately scale it up 10 times and be pulling $1k per day no problem. If they deny me, I'll be SOL when it comes to traffic. On the other hand, I could hide the fact that my traffic is coming from CL, control the flow so as to build up earnings gradually, and be constantly worried about being banned. Does anyone have similar experiences with CJ? Can the merchant dictate how they will allow you to generate traffic, over riding what CJ says? Any advice would be a great help guys. Thanks.
