    I am new to IM and haven't done much yet, so right now I'm just thinking of how I can promote offers. What if I used CL to recruit "secret shoppers" and told them they could complete some free trial offers for money? I would pay them something like a 1/4 of the payout I get from affiliates and everyone would be happy. They get to keep the product they bought, and they get paid for it. I also get paid.

    It just seems to easy though. Is there anything wrong with this method?

    theres a method called cpa domination which does just this. trial offers are the way to go, give it a try. you can get leads by either advertising on cl or harvesting the email addys of all those on cl looking for a job.

    Is there anyway to verify they've actually done a specific offer though?

    Do you mean sub ID's that you can use/input at your affiliate netowrk?

    right ,,, pass some sort of sub id to your users that will show in your sub id stats so you can see who completed. example: hxxp://mystupidcrap.com/index.php?subid=1234

    if each person your having do this has a diff sub id you'll be able to know which offers were completed.

    find a gtp script that passes sub id of your users or create or higher a programmer to wipe one up for ya. your going to want to hide your referrer and make sure you do! just saying ... or ghetto way is just email spread sheet.
