    Hi all

    I try to promote a cpa offer from Maxbounty that is related to my instagram channel.

    i masked the affiliate link from Maxbounty with my own domain. So I put www.owndomain.com in my Instagram profile..

    When clicking the link, I do not get to the CPA offer, instead I get an Instagram error message saying:
    "Problem with this link. the link blablabla.... may be malicious."

    Any advise on how to get around that ? a mobile optimized landing page ?

    masking and redirect will not work. use a pre lander and CTA button.

    Thanks for the quick response.

    I know how to make a simple Landing page but not sure how I do optimize it for mobile... do you use a specific LP builder?

    I have a question, I made a prelander with blogspot but still get some sort of warning on instagram about asking if they really want to go to the website.... and out of 68 clicks from short link... I am only getting 8 clicks to the prelander.....which is really low click...
    ARG, clicks don't even get to see my prelander :/ because of that stupid warning scaring them off....

    It's bit.do/goo.gl -(Stupid Ig warning)-> Prelander with blogspot -> button to offer
    Is there something I am missing here?

    Maxbounty started to be a problem for me too when sharing links on facebook a year or two ago.
    I started using a cloacker but dont know how much will that leave out of ur profit, because they are not that cheap.

    Social media in general does not like direct linking and a cloaker is not only expensive it is just part of the process of masking the link.

    The suggestion above about a landing page with a CTA on it works better anyway from my experience in most verticals.

    You'll be able to sell them just a little bit more before they go to the link and your conversions should be higher.

    If you used the same URL too many times, then it's your domain/url issue. Otherwise it's a straight up blogger issue. Use other sites.

    Just use a landing page. And have it setup as your purchase .com domain. It should bypass IG check.
