    Hi

    this is my first post on bhw :)

    anyways, i am very new in the cpa buisness and just started a camaign. As offer i have choosen one from cj, which only requires email submit for successfull lead.
    "The user must complete our 1st page (landing page) by inserting their e-mail address."

    I am using some very blackhat methods to promote the offer, therefore i am sure at least 30-40% of the visitors will enter their email.

    Now, i checked my stats at CJ today and saw: 150 clicks - no lead. Now i started up my virtual machine, chose a good proxy and tryed the affilitate link myself using a rnd email.

    The stats on CJ did change and i got one more click, but leads are still 0, allthough i have personally filled in the email...

    Now i realy wonder where the problem could be? Or could it be that they wait with confirming the leads? (i looked in the inbox of the mail i used to test, but had no kind of confirmation email from the advertiser).

    I know the answer to this problem might be pretty simple, but as i said, i am very new to the whole thing and right now i have no idea why no lead is being counted. Any1 might has an idea whats going on?

    sad to let you know but,

    email submit offers are dying these days...

    it would be better for you to come up with another method for diff kind of offers..

    Ok, not to turn this into a pissing contest or anything, but how much money have YOU made with e-mail submits and where are you getting your information from?

    I have made multiple thousands with them and have yet to see any signs or talks of them dying in any of the networks I work with.

    even if its dying, i still want to take my share of the corps^^

    i did some further testing, and could it be that they only count a full lead after 2nd page (adress) submit, allthough they claim at cj.com that they do count from first page (email) submit?

    also i tryed to do one lead myself with a couple of different networks and advertisers and i never get any lead, just a click counted, allthough i filled in email each time.
    maybe they are slow on updating and the counts will be display as leads tomorrow?

    any ideas?

    And do you understand the reasoning behind the shaving and also the payout structure of the offers themselves?

    Saying that they are dying is inane, because most of the advertisers are making the ~$1.75 CPA back right on the front end.

    Any other profit from co-reg and conversions on the ad offers themselves is just gravy for the advertiser.

    I don't think email submits will be dead for good. It just shaves alot. So you have to be extra crafty to make your method work.
