    Well, this is my first post and after reading many many posts i have been inspired to start doing some BH methods. I got into accepted into a cpa network using the useful tips i found here and have created a wordpress blog. I am using this wordpress blog with cpa-redirector to fake the referrals. What i am attempting to do is go on craigslist and post ads for used cars at a cheap price and pretend im a dealer. When i get responses i email them back something like this. i am trying to get them to sign up for an insurance cpa offer that pays 3.00 for a one page form submit. I reply to them :
    I describe to them wat the mn means since im using the magic number to redirect them to the offer. I have received at least 50 responses with two ads up in Long Island, Ny and Delaware. After emailing them i have received 24 clicks but no conversions. Wondering if anyone had any helpful suggestions on how to improve this method or my pitch. Thanks.

    At my computer... how else would I be on a forum?
    This is not something I would do but go ahead and keep trying.

    I would say just increase the amount of posts on CL and make sure the landing page looks professional (something a dealer would tell you) and young, gullible people who haven't bought cars before will fall for it.

    usually for these kind of insurance offers, the advertisers will call up your leads and verified with them on the source so if they are not converting, you bet you will get banned pretty soon.

    Not too bad, but as mentioned above once your leads dont convert the company you are promoting will call your leads and enquire as to where they got their website from.

    To improve conversions, have a look at your wording...you have a few grammer mistakes in that text, and if that is the exact text you are using then that is the problem with your conversions...with those kinds of mistakes it just screams SCAM!
    (e.g "...your salesman will contact you" change to something along the lines of "...a member of our sales department will contact you...")
    Make it seem more professional, more like something that an actual car dealer WOULD send to a potential customer..

    As for the magic number thing, i would never reveal that kind of link to my leads. It looks like an affiliate link (even though directly its not an affiliate link). You must not give your leads ANY REASON AT ALL TO DOUBT YOU! They must not for one second even think that the reply they are reading might be some kind of scam..

    If it were me:
    First thing i would do is set up a website for a car dealer, eg. mycarsite.com
    Then i would create a gallery on my car site for all the cars i have for sale.
    I would then set up my magic number link as a redirect of my actual car site, eg: mycarsite.com/your_quote (When they visit this link they are redirected to the magic number link)
    I would also create an email address at my carsite's domain e.g sales@mycarsite.com
    Now i would post as you have. And as people reply i would contact them using my sales@mycarsite.com email address. I would also give them a link to my car site to view more details of the car they want to purchase.
    Then i would say, if they are still interested to click on www.mycarsite.com/your_quote and complete the form to get an instant insurance quote for the car and allow us to capture their details. A member of our sales department will be in contact with them soon to arrange a test drive... (or something similar)

    Remember, the key is NOT give them ANY REASON TO DOUBT YOU! So spend a week or two and develop a very nice car site. Something that looks like a company would actually want to present to their leads to persuade them to buy a car from them. Every aspect of your response to your leads must seem like its coming from an actual company. Remember not to make yourself sound too desperate. A real car dealer will have many people replying to their ads.

    Your conversions will skyrocket if you use a two response approach. i.e When they first reply you say something like "...hi im jon doe from mycarsite.com, thanks for your interest, to view more on the car visit mycarsite.com/chev1232, dont hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like to arrange a test drive.." Then only some of the people will reply back, but you know that these people are very interested in the car and will jump through many hoops to get it, you can then reply to them with something like "...blah blah (all the most generic questions answered) to arrange a test drive go to mycarsite.com/your_quote to get an instant insurance quote and allow us to capture your details and a member of our sales team blah blah..."

    Also, you my want to consider promoting a credit report instead...

    Anyway man, im really rambling on here...i hope this give you some good advice and that you refine your method to start making you big money...good luck

    SpeakToTMan, thank you for your great suggestions and i will put them fully to use.

    I tried using the credit report before the insurance saying how they should fill it out so we are not dealing with any fraudalent people but most ppl replied back "i dont good credit anyway" "no way im sending you my credit info" etc.

    Also, you say how to not give the magic number to your leads. How would i go about not revealing the number? using tinyurl? i thought u need the magic number in their to redirect them. Thanks.

    you could say: "while you are waiting for someone to get back with you, click here to see how much insurance will run you on this kind of car". i do something like this with my legitimate promotions and it works fine.

    Very nice twist. See, all it takes is a little bit of thinking outside the box.

    conversions aren't always instantaneous. some statistics are on a 5 minute delay, and some businesses wait to verify stuff before they give you the conversion. just be patient and it'll pop up eventually

    what i do to hide my mn is this -

    setup a redirect in your cpanel

    so - http://www.yourdomain.com/insurance

    redirects to http://www.yourdomain.com/?mn=xxx

    depending on the network it can take up to 24 hours to see results. some are slow as shit.
