    Hey there, I would like to get some tips from you guys.

    Basically I came up with a new Idea for a CPA offer. Its Blackhat of course and the offer is a free signup paying me $6-10 per person. All I will say is the site sells stuff and chances aren't very good my people will actually buy something.

    Now I came up with a dirty little trick into getting ppl to signup to this site, its not iframed or incentivized.

    My actual question is, what would you guys define as "under the radar" with a cpa network ?

    I made $220 on my first day after sending only 600 emails. So I can basically scale this thing up and make $1k+ a day but that will be stupid.

    Should I bring it down to around 300 emails a day aiming for $100?
    I don't wanna be put on rev share or completely blocked by the offer.


    *Forgot to add, I am throwing in some junk email traffic and got my rate down to ~10%

    spread it between 3-5 other networks if you can.... throw in some paid traffic to bring down your EPC.

    Yeah if no one is buying I'd stay below $50-100/day per account

    Yea at first I was getting a ratio of like 1:2 lol so I had to quickly find a way to fix that.

    Im not sure other networks has the same offer. I know copeac also has it but their only paying per sale and not per free signup like the 1 im using right now.

    More junk traffic and less per network to be safe

    I don't think traffic is his problem, he needs to mix *real* signups in with them.

    Yea it allows search traffic, maybe I should run a campaign for it with PPC for some low cost keyword.

    This brings up an interesting question. Do you think the CPA network looks at the % or the total amount paid out vs total sales?

    Makes me wonder if CPA is going to die out altogether because companies will get less and less roi as more and more people figure out how to BH the system.

    If NONE of your customers are buying, no amount will keep you under the radar. Even if your doing $50 per day, that's still 1500 a month.

    If the advertiser isnt happy with your leads, whether you send 100 or you send 1, eventually they are gonna pull you from the offer.

    Also, did you go through the offer on your own. Sometimes the advertiser does some pretty sneaky things to find out EXACTLY where your customer came from....

    Don't wanna burst your bubble or anything, but your gonna have to find a way to get some good customers/legit leads, if you want this method to last at all..

    I agree witht the previous poster. Mix in PPC traffic. If you get some conversion going for the advertiser they will be happy.
    Why not even buddy up with your AM and ask them how happy the advertiser is with you traffic (after you mixed in some PPC).
    Tell him you want a long term relationship since it's going so well for you (you founds some great keywords) and you know a win-win is required.

    Alright just signed up for bing and got a campaign running on there, hopefully its enough to cover me.

    No, I didnt signup myself nor did I pay other people to signup. Basically the people are signing up to it because they want to make money and I told them a trick on an email how they can make money by using that site.

    I agree with SMW. I would try to keep it under $100 per day each on a few different networks and throw in some junk traffic as well as some legit PPC traffic from Bing/MSN AdCenter. Google (in my opinion) is too damned expensive for this sort of thing.

    Alright, so I got paid 1k for my 1st week but I was asked to stop traffic and im switched to rev share.
    So now I want to ask, can you guys tell me what other networks are paying per free signup for bidz.

    Oh and I spent $60 on ppc traffic which didnt really help much I guess.
