    I have been using ebooks to
    promote some of the niche
    CPA offers now.

    Do you think I need to use
    double meta refresh etc ?

    If so then how? I have no idea.

    The links are in the pdf.

    When people download the
    ebook from the directories and occasionally
    fill the lead form, I get the commission.

    What do you think is the flip side to this?

    Any BH method applicable with this form of
    promotion?

    How will the networks know, if I am paying people
    to complete the offers or not?As the clicks are
    not coming from any site, would they still have a
    referrrer?

    Share your thoughts.

    Thanks for all the contribution.

    If you own the ebooks, then IMO you should have nothing to worry about.
    On the other hand, if you're jacking others' ebooks, do it. There's a thread that tells how to do it on here.

    Always use double meta refreshes, even if its legit. It gives you a lil' alliby if you start promoting blackhat.

    Young guns,

    The ebooks are mine.

    But those are crap stuff. I only stuff links
    everywhere.

    Using meta refresh would mean- that I will have to create
    landing pages etc. But is that needed anyway,since people
    would first download the ebook on their pc and then open
    it and click on links etc .

    Would that be any referrer at all ?

    Any other flip side to this method?

    Yes the ebooks are mine.

    All crap stuff with links all over.

    But meta refresh would mean, that
    I would need landing pages etc.

    But do you guys really think the ebooks
    would give out any referrer? Because I
    have hyper linked the text to the affiliate
    sites directly.

    I am not sure if it can show the referrer since
    I am sending the ebook to the people who would
    be interested to complete the offers via email.

    And I have no sites where I have put my aff
    links or something.

    Can the links from the ebook reveal any sort of
    referrer at all? Please throw some light.

    Cheers to all.

    some cap networks have links for Direct Redirect For Downloadable Software Publishing
    you can use them for your ebooks.

    hey mraxe

    would you care to share your method with us? It sounds like a very interesting method.

    From what I gather, you are putting together niche related ebooks and putting them into ebook directories for people to download?

    This is what you would have to do....for all your affliate links send them off to landing pages that have instant metarefreshes on them. It'll seem like it goes straight to the offers. But the bad thing about this is that you can never delete your landing pages... lol

    You should never link directly to the CPA landing page. If the offer gets stopped you will lose all that traffic. You should setup a tracking system on a domain you own and direct traffic to it, using the tracking script to redirect however you see fit to the CPA landing page.

    Yes, the flipsides pointed are truly something
    that deserves my attention.

    Thank you BHW members.

    But what about the referrer ? Would there be
    any referrer that would be passed on to the
    network with this method?

    I'm not sure if there is any referrer info passed from the e-book. However if you want a quick way to check, create a php file on your server with the following code:


    Code:
    
    <?php
    session_start();
    $referrer = $_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER'];
    echo $referrer;
    ?>
    
    
    Then save and link to the file from the e-book. If the page loads blank then there is no referrer info. Otherwise, the page will display the referrer info. You should be able to use this to check your referrer info from anywhere.

    Hope this helps.

    Recently I'm using almost similiar method but the conversion rate is too low. Maybe it's too early to judge. The thing is I've no idea which CPA offers to promote as I'm still fairly new in this. What I'm promoting is adult dating affiliate where the link in the pdf that goes direct to the merchant's landing page for free profile sign-up.

    The initial method I'm using is upload the file to rapidshare and then post it all over rapidshare's forum. To-date just 7 fourms and I know there are many more. Within 2 weeks I got 1000 downloads and 200 clicks on the affiliate link. Guess what? Only 4 people sign-up! That's free sign-up and not paid!

    As I can see the method works and I believe I can get more download as I only did 20% of promoting it. But maybe I chose the wrong program to promote. Anyone can give a better suggestion to which is the ideal program to promote? I'm looking more to CPA offers, zip/email submit.

    Thanks.

    For ebooks I would double meta refresh each link. Normally you would need a site to forward the link to a domain set up with a script in order to double meta refresh your offer. This site called My Safe Link at http://mysafelink.com will allow you to both hide and and double meta refresh it. After you've created that link you can make even more money from your efforts by masking the link again by using Link Bee at http://linkbee.com.

    Hope this helped
