    I'd like to hear from people who are either experienced in CPA, network owners, or affiliate managers.

    I understand that most networks allow incent on their offers. Is it against TOS to pay someone outright to fill out offers?

    I mean, if I were to create a website and tell someone I'll pay them $5 an hour to fill out as many offers as they can...wouldn't that get me banned pretty quickly?

    (I'm just wondering this because someone just offered this to me as a job without disclosing that's what they were doing.)

    I don't see why you couldn't do that. I mean its the same as content locking a page.

    Not really.
    It's the same concept but different result for the advertiser.

    Most of the time offers are soft-incent like content locking. You make them fill something out so they can get their prize.

    Hard incent offers are those which people are paid for their input. Most GPT sites are set up in this fashion. Prime example - Cashcrate.

    If you were going to set up an Incentive site I would highly suggest getting an account at PointClickTrack, AxonMedia, and Red Fire Network.

    Need more info, hit me up with a pm. I've been in the process of getting my ducks in a row for a new GPT site.

    you talk about hard/cash incentive offers , you can find offers like this but they pay low for it and shaving a lot , your idea isn't new and you can do it but you should blank your traffic .

    Blank it? And completely give the network to shave it all? Fake the referrer if necessary, otherwise join a site that is all about promoting these offers.

    Check out CashCrate seriously, they are a brilliant business model to follow.

    Oh no. I wasn't asking because I want to set up my own site. I was asking because someone was trying to pay me to fill out a shitton of offers. It didn't sound right to me.

    there's been a few threads about doing this. most people get banned because the people filling out the offers and getting paid to do it, aren't following through once they've submitted their email or filled out the survey or whatever. so they get caught out pretty quick.

    Nope, These site wont succeed nor will last long.

    Offering cash to fill off the offer is not someone who is generally intrested in the offer.

    Content locking they at least get to choose what they want to fill out.

    Big difference between incent and fraudulent leads... Traffic needs to back out for the advertiser no matter if its incent or not..

    I think they try to mix cash incentive leads with normal leads and get away with it.

    Yeah, it's as simple as, CPA companies act as middle-men between an advertiser that pays them and the publisher: you. Incentive is just another way to entice your prospects. If someone pays visitors to perform the action, he/she's obviously generating fraudulent leads that are not going to convert for the advertiser (whatever conversion they agreed on) hence you'll either get shaved, banned, depending on how smart/lucky you are. As someone said incentive and fraud are 2 very different things.

    It's a numbers game where you measure performances according to statistics not linear arithmetic, so someone will certainly get away even with low quality leads but in the long run I can't see how such a business model could be sustainable if everyone were to do this scammy scheme. Of course someone could reply it's a CPA problem, not theirs...

    But as a general note, I'd tend to say you'll hear a good chunk of them whine a few days before payday ;) HTH!
