    Is it legit/whitehat to post CPA offers in craigslist freebies? Like say my CPA is a free laptop, can I post an offer for a free laptop, have them email me, and then have them submit thier email to it without breaking any rules? I'm not worried about my CPA networks rules i'm worried about like a false craigslist ad kind of thing that craigslist would leaglly punish you for. And is this even a good method? even if people did email me would they be likely to fill out the offer? if anyone else has some good whitehat methods to make money on CPA through craigslist let me know!

    1) That will get flagged super fast. So your biggest challenge is right there.
    2) It IS Against CL TOS to post ads for affiliate programs on their site.
    3) You will need to come up with a more creative method than "here's a free laptop" if you want to actually get a decent amount of traffic from that site.

    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.
    Home Page:
    To find out what works just respond to some of the ads on CxL and you'll see what others are doing. If you see the same/similar ad with the same/similar response to your inquiry, you will know what is working.

    At that point, you have to make some adjustments so it looks like you are offering something different, place some ads and see what converts.
