    Ok

    Obvoiusly, its not black hat if all I do is direct targeted traffic to one of the many thousands of email and or zip submit offers....so my question is...does this direct approach not work or simply not work as well as BH methods?

    I am aware of and own BHCB...but if I am simply promoting an email submit for a free trip to Vegas I dont really need to lock any content?

    I am also aware of godcpa....but what is the point of totally covering one crappy offer with another more appealing offer...as the traffic on the back end will obviously not convert at all for the advertiser?


    I GUESS WHAT I AM SEEKING HERE IS A LITTLE GUIDANCE AS TO HOW TO BEST GET STARTED

    I already get how to be accepted into the networks and all that.....

    What I mean is .... if I want to go BH...I set up a page with some juicy content....and pick 3 decent paying email submit offers and implement BHCB to lock the content until the user submits one of the offers

    BUT....then...I obviously need to suplement these submits with both PPC traffic (that actually has a chance of converting) and junk traffic so my submit ratio is not to high

    To me, this seems like allot of work? Wouldn't it just be easier to try and find the best offers and run creative campaigns on CL to drive lots of free traffic to the offer and let the chips fall where they may?

    Or...is this last option just a pipe dream as it is almost impossible to just run good ads on CL and get straight up submits...making it necessary to use BHCB, iframes or incentives?

    My last question is...If an offer is incentiveisable and it pays $1.80 for an email submit for a free trip to Vegas....how might one go about providing and incentive to the user to fill this out? Pay them some percentage via paypal?...this seems to split hairs...with paypal fees and so on?

    thx in advance for any help or guidance

    I'm not sure affiliate companies are paying out to Chernobil.

    @ theartfuldodger
    The numbers you pull are encouraging. I tried some few methods in the past an failed. Time to get back.
