    I'm relative new to CPA. I tried some methods found here.
    The profit was terrible. I don't want to say that these methods are worthless, I understood that you have to try the method first, and you have to get an idea how can you profit with it.
    This is because, 99% of the IM's wouldn't tell you, how he/she make $1000 / day.

    Example:
    Method on forum: Sell a car
    Your idea: If the car has a problem, repair it and publish it on eBay and
    mobile.de.

    That's how I'm making $10 per day with CPA + Facebook.

    But... As every IM, I want more and more profit :)

    I read about incentive offers, and I couldn't believe.
    I heard from my AM that I can give reward/cash/gift etc. to users, who complete the offer(s).

    I thinked about it and I have several very simple methods, how to make money from that:

    - Make a Get-Payed-To site and put the incentive offers on it.
    - Make a warez site and block the content with gateway (this one really works)
    - Find some freelancers, and pay $1 for lead


    The last one is that, I want to do; so:

    CPA incentive offer: $3 / lead
    Freelancer: $1 / lead
    Invest: $100
    Profit: $300 - $100 = $200

    Questions:

    - Is this method legit / is it white hat or black hat ?
    - Must I blank / fake the referrer while doing this ?
    - Is there something I need to know before doing this ?

    Note:

    If it works, then the first thing I'm gonna do is donate to BHW

    There is a lot of shaving going to on so if you pay someone 1$ per lead you'll probably end up losing money. Furthermore, some offers (although they are incentive) don't allow warez traffic.

    I know for warez, that's was just an example; of course, you can do it with any other niche.
    Thank you anyway.

    Okey, I heard that they shave, but the most important to me is:

    Is it legit to do ?

    Warez might not be such a bad idea after all. You could take a look at black hat code breaker to lock your content. BHCB has a feature that allows you to automatically blank the referrer. I believe that as long as your not sending fraud leads it is legit.

    It depends on the offer, with some offers you can do cash incentive but with most you can not. You have to talk to your account manager and he can point you in the right direction.

    I'm not a big fan of cash incentives anyway, it's hard to find people in the US that will fill in your offers for just a few cents and duplicate singups will get filtered out by the advertiser resulting in a low EPC.
