    Ok, most u know I run a heap of CPA accounts and I try to keep my leads how should I say "SEXY" so today a JV client sent me a letter from the Advertiser,

    Hey XXXX,

    The advertisers of xxxxxxxxxx and xxxxxxxxxx are very happy with the lead quality
    you have been producing and have asked for more traffic. Therefore, I would like to
    offer you a higher payout for both of these offers.

    If I increase the payouts on each, can you deliver higher volume?

    Thanks,

    xxx xxxxx
    xxxxxxxxxxxxx inc


    Sounds good huh? Well my issue is this how can they tell lead quality in less then a week not to mention I just started with this certain network know more then 5 days ago, just as a test platform. I think its a set up, I mean im not xtreme blackhat, but I'm not a little angel, I just get worried when all of sudden my leads are the best around, when I know that's B%$## Sh^%

    sounds fishy to me. I never had that kind of letter come up before...I would approach this with extreme caution. did you check the email tosee if the address sounds legit?

    It is quite possible that you are converting well and people aren't canceling. You will often get bumps for performance - on nearly every kind of offer.

    Tell them you want to get payment before you scale up your campaign. Its one of your "rules" that you dont scale until you see money in the bank.

    I assume you told them you were doing PPC marketing right?

    If you want to play it safe simply say that you are at about the max budget for this month. This may even get them to issue you payment early ;)

    Ask them if they can payout your earnings so far as a sign of trust, If they do so go ahead and boost the traffic volume.
    Edit: I like wowhaxor's idea.

    No... That's sounds sketchy as hell. Do what wowhaxor and the person above him said and say:

    "Sorry, I don't have any extra money to throw at these campaigns right now. However if you could bump my payout date then that would a completely different story. Let me know if you can, if so I would be more than happy to send more traffic over.

    Thanks!"

    I don't know about that one, they might get your traffic, and
    stiff you
