    Sup guys

    I know this is such a newbie question, but on a few website I have a cpa survey and I was wondering how the advertisers are making money? there are so many examples, I mean, $0.50 for just your name address and e-mail?

    They make money on the backend, once they have their name and **********. They can sell them directly, sell their info to other companies, etc.

    For instance if its $500 gift card someone has to complete lots of trial/insurance etc offers. Most of them stop after completing couple so they dont receive gift and advertiser gets money. :) But thats the reason for scrub if **********s are not making any money to advertiser he scrubs you.

    Cheers

    Well there is a multi-billion business behind these things as you may guess. We are just little peons doing the dirty work really. Doesn't matter if you are making 1-5k/day in CPA.

    You are helping a multibillion dollars company get their best research straight for their next product, or build them a list that will bring them 10 times what they promises (but sometimes don't) to give you.

    That one business which is behind surveys and similar is the closest to "the sure thing" when it comes to investing money in something.
