    What do you guys think of paying for cpa leads like email submits, dating offers on freelancer? I see people posting projects for it all the time. Is it legit can you find some decent traffic/revenue doing this? Just a curious idea.

    I really doubt it because they would probably have their own offers to have filled instead of applying for a job to fill someone else's. The thing about Freelancer is that people apply for jobs even if they are not at all qualified, so if someone was telling you that he could get you leads that are real then most likely he is trying to fool you and your account will get banned, etc. Some of those guys are just desperate to get money, and will lie through their teeth in order to get it.

    Ok. you will make money with this.. You can even send this way 1000 lead a day to make even $2k a day with email submits.... but........

    1. Leads won't convert for the advertiser -> warning to CPA network -> you - > BAN
    2. You screw up with faking the refferer -> BAN

    One way to do it succesfully is to mix them with real leads and traffic..

    Make it like 50/50 so lead still will convert for the advertiser and you will get double money from cpa network....

    BUT...

    Don't do it! It's blackhat.. and against Cpa network TOS so this method will always lead to Banning you from the netowork.

    I doubt that you can find decent traffic provider in freelance, however, if you still want to try this, I would recommend to ask for previous CPA related jobs examples of the provider and ask some more tricky questions about CPA networks, to make sure that he knows, what he is doing :rolleyes:

    Every single freelancer lead supplier is a fraud, why? If they had their own leads why the fuck would they be throwing them away?

    They will make money, you will get banned. Don't do it.

    I TRIED THIS .... and i thought i got away with it then on the 30th day of net 30 i got an email , no money will be sent and i was banned.

    i was paying $0.10 pay up front or i agreed $0.50 pay after 30 days on net 30, the guy took the net 30 , no money waste of time. the offer was a $1.50 submit.

    mixed in with lots of other traffic, to make the conversion rate right , well 8-10% banned and lost money.

    DO NOT DO IT.

    It will get you banned easily. And to find a good freelancer is not that easy too. And if you get banned you are not only lost the money you earned on CPA, also you lost money from your pocket to pay freelancers. And this whole time, you have to worry about if you will get banned or not, and if freelancer really doing their job right. Waste money, time and your brain cells plus CPA account. Not worth it.
