    Hi guys,

    I've been doing email submits for quite some time now and I noticed something really interesting with one of the CPA networks - it doesn't matter how much traffic I send the earnings stay almost the same. If I send 80 clicks a day I get about 8 leads, when I send over 150 clicks I always get less than 5 leads.

    Isn't that cool! :cool:

    I'm thinking of switching to another network where the payouts are smaller but hopefully they don't shave that much.

    My question to you guys is how much of your emails/zip submits are being shaved and can you recommend a CPA network where they stop pressing the "SHAVE" button from time to time?

    I think most of the networks shave from time to time :) I would trust and suggest you StrongerAds because they are owned by reputable BHW members and have a great community.

    I often wonder about shaving. Unfortunately we have a tough time proving it. Would be great if someone could get some hard evidence.

    In 99.99% of the cases it is the advertiser.
    EVERY email submit scrubs like a madman (or it wouldn't be profitable). There have been many case studies where people copied the exact submit landing page and captured the emails themselves, the conversion difference was on average 500% better.

    There is no such thing as a consistant submit offer, unless it's a noob advertiser.
    The solution is to not promote submits and go for longer forms.

    Problem here is you cant really proof that they are shaving :(

    You don't need proof, everybody knows it's a fact.
    Short submits simply shave and scrub like mad, ask ANY reputable network, neverblue, peerfly etc, it's just the nature of submits...

    Anything can and will sometimes be shaved/scrubbed. But it is generally less severe with longer form leadgen type stuff.

    It's definitely one of the top 10. I signed up for another network (not on the list) and behold - the leads increased three times. I'm just waiting to receive my first payment and directing 90% of my traffic there.

    Today I switched back to the 'famous' one and see all day - hits with no leads :cool:

    Hehe you're not talking about Maxbounty right now? When I changed away from them, my CPA income tripled with similar offers and same traffic.
