    What do you say in order to get accepted? What has worked the best for you?

    I usually say I do SEO or PPC, but sometimes that just isn't enough. I'm currently working on getting into two major players programs and need some fresh ideas.

    What you honestly doing? I've been straightforward with blackhat stuff, and the bottom line is, as long as you deliver quality leads, everyone's happy.

    To get accepted all you have to do is answer your phone when they ring you and spend 5-15 mins bullshitting about the other networks you are with, never fails :p

    Same and I haven't been told I can't do anything which I'm doing, so I'm fine, as long as I'm getting the leads, their not going to complain. Although I'm not 'allowed' to use cakeslice / godcpa.

    The leads are quality, but I can't tell the exact source to them (CL) because its banned by the advertiser. That is no problem though as I can easily fake the referrer. The problem is that the advertiser I'm trying to setup a link with mostly accepts the major players like cnn, yahoo and alike. So far the acceptance process has been a pain in the ass. I've been trying to get in for 3 weeks with no luck so far, but I'm being persistent. Eventually they'll let me in.

    Home Page:
    You just need to be detailed in what you do without revealing your exact traffic source. If you have an email list, don't just say you email. Say you have large list of targeted email addresses that are all opt-in and how you market them. Just don't give up how you do it b/c it really isn't their business where it comes from.

    Also, if they are quality leads, most networks would care less where they come from. If you are generating fraud leads, and I am not saying you do at all, then you will be banned of course. But if you are just driving traffic and helping people find offers they are truly interested in, you will not have a problem. Just expand on your business model a bit and I am sure you can get in to most networks. Also, drop a few names of the bigger affiliate networks that you are already in too. That seems to help a lot.

    yea, possibly say that you own a website and you use PPC's to direct your traffic to the site.
