    Hi members,

    What does mean Incentivized offers exactly?

    I read that it means giving visitors an incetivise (bonus, free ebook...).

    But what if the conversion was 1 email submit for each 3 visitors (33.33%) come from a landing page that encourages them to sign up (without any bonus, just some info about the service) to get free offers (ex: free ipod).

    Is it OK when doing that for a merchant who prevents incetivises?

    Or it's "Incentivized" only when I give something to let others fill the forms.

    Any clarification, suggestion ?

    thanks.

    Home Page:
    Incentivized means you giving the user a bonus for completing to offer. This ranges from points -> money.

    The offer is the offer, regardless if its free ipod, car, etc and can be whatever, and generally advertisers don't like on page encouragement to fill something out.

    My question:

    So, I can practically send 0 value leads to them? And they won't argue about it?

    They probably won't argue, they'll just shave or kick you off the offer.

    So, a landing page that encourages people to fill forms or to buy, because of info/design, and converts 50% (1 lead each 2 visits) won't let the merchant consider this incentivized. Right?
