    Ok, I am a complete newbie, and I really haven't tried myself at affiliate programs, I just know small portion about them. I am just interested about email submits affiliate program that I saw that pay about $1.5 per email submit. I really don't understand how advertisers make money of it, but I have one stupid question to what answer is probably no, but I am gonna ask anyway. Is it possible for email submit aff programs with incentives, to put them on crowdsourcing website like microworkers, to let people submit their email there for let's say $0.5, which would mean that I would get profit from $1. I know this is probably impossible, because advertisers probably wouldn't get good leads with it, and it sounds too simple method that probably everyone would do and make hundreds of dollars a day with no effort. I know answer is probably no, but don't be too rough on me, I have no experience in this field of IM whatsoever...

    You know what I havent really thought about it.

    Some email submits require that the traffic be from a certain country so that could be a road block.

    But the biggest road block would be that bad leads coming from your account and also the quailty of traffic.

    You should try it out and see how long your account lasts.

    Regards.

    PS: You can think of your own money making ideas, you are already 90% ahead of the crowd here.

    No, I haven't yet signed for any affiliate programs, since I haven't got a website yet, or anything so I won't even try to get approved yet, but I think this couldn't be legit, it's just surreal and probably anyone would do this simple method and made hundreds a day for nothing... I just learned today that it is paid 1.5 dollars for just email submit, and I was just shocked at how this could be easy, and too good to be truth. Also I don't want to do it and see how long my account lasts, because I could regret it one day that I am banned from some respectable network.

    Well, that wouldn't the best method to be honest. Email submit offers tend to get shaved BADLY!
    Let's say you pay $5 submitted email (that's 10 emails at your proposed rate). Now, due to shaving
    your conversion was at 30% -> $4.5 ( 3 leads) as a result you just lost $0.50

    How do they make their money back? They simply spam to death all the submitted emails
    until the person eventually buy a weight loss offer or something. The advertisers of these offers
    always will face to problems which are their conversion rate will suck anyway
    ( they're spamming people at the end of they day) and all the fraudsters usually go
    for this type of offer so they will more likely end up with fake emails, bots, etc..

    I would focus on another type of offer if I were you!

    Best of luck!

    I just put it as an example $0.50 , people at microworkers averagely get tasks done for $0.10, and that is for even more complexed tasks than this, I would probably put it as $0.2 or $0.3 because it would already be at the top of the list of most paid on microworkers believe it or not, and I think lots of people would jump to just submit their email, that is like 5 sec job for them for 0.2 dollars.
