    Hey guys,

    I saw the similar thread below but my q's are a little different...

    Basically I'm going to be using IG to drive traffic to my CPA offers. I have my own domain and a landing page so I understand that will keep IG happy?

    Anyway, I want to make sure I also keep my CPA network happy too as I will be paying for mentions to a giveaway photo that tells people if they click the link and fill in the offer, that they can win what they see in the picture. Obviously I don't think the CPA network will like this so - how can I be safe and avoid getting banned from the network?

    Someone told me that I should cloak my links? Any thoughts/advice would be massively and greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Cheers.

    CPA networks don't really give a f*** as long as it's real traffic

    But they can shave your earnings or suspend your account just because your traffic source is deemed not "legit".

    Best to cloak at all times.

    How can I do that exactly?

    I understand how to just change the way my URL appears but I assume more than that needs to be done...

    Someone told me I need some redirect script?

    Basically the method I'll be using on IG will be 'incentivising' them to fill click and fill out my CPA link which I understand is not allowed. If I can hide my traffic source (i.e my network don't see I've been using Insta to get my traffic) then could I be ok?

    Anyone knowledgable enough to answer this?

    Don't do that. Non incentive advertiser has the right not to pay when they determine the traffic quality is poor. To put it in simple terms, is sales don't occur and advertiser don't make money, they have the right to refuse payment to CPA networks. And CPA network will then refuse payment to you as they are not paid as well. Use your method for incentive offers. There are many incentive offers out there. Check out CPAleads.

    Thanks. Just to elaborate by incentivising I'm talking about directing traffic to a giveaway photo that tells them they can win what they see in the picture if they click my link in the bio which leads to my landing page and then my offer which is an email submit.

    Is this still not ok by my CPA network?

    P.S I assume by the above that an 'incentive CPA offer' isn't an offer that rewards people if they complete the offer but rather an offer than traffic can be directed to as a result of offering them an incentive to do so?

    Thanks again for the help.
