    I recently applyed to some good CPA network. I phoned them and i talked with the lady for some time.

    After the phone conversation she wants me to give her my landing page for some pruduct i told her i was promoting via Amazon.

    Now, the problem is i m not promoting that product, so i cant show her the landing page.

    What are my options?
    The conversation on the phone went well, but she was really asking a lot of questions and i wanted to impress her to much so i made that part up as i did not know that she will want some more evidence. I already showed her one of my sites which is very cool looking and i think she liked it.


    Can i tell her i m promoting with PPC campaigns directly to the amazon aff link or what?

    Please help me as i would really like to come in this network.
    Thanks

    Hmmmm, So you lied right off the bat...?

    Not the best idea.

    How about you say that you promote through micro niche sites with traffic primarily driven by SEO. Tell her that although she sounds like a nice lady, you have heard of affiliate managers stealing niches/techniques/ideas and you will have to respectfully decline, to show her any specific landing pages.

    Just tell her that the majority of the traffic you intend to send to that network will be PPC driven via a blog style squeeze page.

    Quite funny that you are saying "not the best idea." ROFLOL

    This is some guidelines how you can get accepted into those networks.
    And in many of those guides, people are helping approval by lying, so i don´t know what the bad idea there?

    What you should have told her is that you've had other networks trying to copy you in the past to try to take some of your traffic. At that point she should just make the decision on if they want to accept you from the first lander you showed them. No point in starting off lying to your AMs like was said above.

    Yes, i was following the guidelines from the bhw posts. They are great. It helped me a lot. I put together a really solid campaign, it is just the lady was hammering me with so many questions and wanting proof for some. I provided her with enaugh details.

    I did not notice in any of the posts that you have to provide more than one of your sites.

    That just sucks. So should i buy an aged domain and put one page of content on or should i go with the aReJay answer.

    If you can setup it then you can do it... no issue... Or you can simple make excuse like aRejay said...

    I think she will approve your account anyway... It's just their habit to see all before they approve...

    I could make some landing page, but it would not be really profi like. I dont know if the landing page is the all or nothing factor which makes or brakes her decision.

    Plus i dont think it looks good if yyou have landing page -- page rank 0 and the site is new or some months old.


    Can anybody help me write a good letter that points out the sucking up to the network, the no landing page part and some flattering of the lady :)


    If there is some native english speaker that can take 5 minutes i would really appreciated it.

    I m not native english speakir so this is more difficult for me to do. Thanks Guys so much. This is really the best forum i have ever been in. In i have been in many.

    Just try to make the landing page look as professional looking as possible. Outsource this if need be.

    Tell her that this is not an active campaign you are running, rather just an example of what her network can expect to see from you (that will explain the new domain and low pr/rank).

    Because it was a lie that he had no way of supporting. At least if he said he was doing SEO/PPC and pushing micro niche sites he could hide behind not sharing his niche/keywords etc.

    Rather than just saying he's pushing Amazon. Now he may have to show his 'Amazon' earnings.

    Lying is bad idea, now he's in problems and if he just said the truth he would be accepted till now.

    i dont promote lying, but if i were to find myself in that problem I would probably search all over the net for a lander page for whatever product I had lied about, all she wants to do is see if their network currently has your offer already to make your traffic switch over smooth and easy from past cpa to new cpa network. If she doesn't have it, she will be searching all over the net trying to find one just like you were earlier.
