    So guys, I basically did what some guys here suggested in getting accepted by all the major CPA network. I told them I do not have a website and I would use PPC marketing to drive traffic to their offers. I received a mail from one of the representatives there asking me to call them. The problem is I am in India and there is a large time gap between our countries of operation, also I do not know what they will ask. SO i just wanted to ask, IS HYDRA WORTH THE EFFORT???
    also if there is any other CPA network that has good offers please tell me.
    HOW DOES HYDRA PAY???

    Regards
    Love, Peace and Respect:23:

    I have been very happy with Hydra. They pay via PP on the 15-16th every month and I've never had an issue.

    They always call... I've done a handful of interviews with them.. this is the standard format:

    how long have you been doing IM?
    How will you promote our offers?
    if you say PPC they will ask more specific things like:
    What offers are you currently running? (make sure you have a list of at least 5-- name a couple and save a few just in case they ask for more)
    What is your monthly budget?

    Just do your research. If you couldn't BE a PPC marketer than how are you going to pretend to be one?

    my first CPA application was at Hydra too. SHOT DOWN

    But yes, I can confirm that FLOW is providing the same questions that I got when I applied.

    Hydra is one of the most honest networks out there. I would make the effort to give them a try.

    Good luck

    Hydra is well worth the effort. Tons of offers, payments never an issue.

    They will ask you the standard questions. Search the board for anwers.

    It was the very first CPA network that I appiled to and was accepted easily. I'm in Europe though.

    I agree, Hydra is one of my best converting networks and they aren't a bunch of shaving bastards like a lot of CPA networks are. I've been with them for over 2 years and always get paid on time and have never had an issue with them. They are one of the very few that I highly recommend.

    What type of problems does direct track have? I have thought about starting a network and am considering direct track. Could it be that the problems are with the affiliate network and not direct track? Is there a more reliable affiliate network solution?

    They have one of the best CPA offers in the market. I got accepted very easily, just remember you need to have a good website to show them how you to promote their offers.

    So as for hydra they are considered the best by most, they have tons of offers, like the biggest list you will find, and... they have good payment options ACH, PP, Check, Wire, whatever you want basically. IMO they require as much effort to get into as any other CPA thats worth joining, ionno why everyone says its so hard. I mean I guess they reviewed my website after the phone call before approving me which most networks don't but whatever... so it took a extra 24 hours.

    Anyways if the phone call is what is holding you back you need to deal with it because they all practically require a phone call, at least any of the good ones.

    Through my tests with my proprietary in house software Hydra has about a 3.2% lead descrepency. What that means is I lose on average about 3.2% of the leads I send through them whether it be a technical issue like pixel not firing, etc.

    That is the lowest I've personally found, most networks average closer to 9% and some upwards of 15% in my tests. There is a lot of factors involved like the tracking software they use, merchants being able to pull shady business, auto scrub, tech issues etc.

    Hydra has always paid me on time, and they have the best offers overall. They are the number 1 network I recommend.
