    hello.
    I am a member of many cpa companies and i promote incentive offers through my gpt site. Many members of my gpt site completed the offer and provided the welcome email recieved after they confirmed their email address as well as their country and ip address. yet when i look at my account there is no conversions, only leads and impressions.

    why is that .. I have tried to contact the affiliate managers but they are not helpful at all..

    the networks am experiencing this problem with every single offer :
    limelightCpa
    rocketcpa
    cpajuice
    nameoffers
    cpaway
    gooffers

    i have asked the manager to make sure the offers are running before i promote them and they seem to be ok. is the problem with me or with the network.

    please help. this is going to drive me crazy as im not doing anything wrong but no conversions at all..

    thanks

    First off i'd suggest joining a few better reputation networks which do not have a history of shaving. You can find those on affiliatepaying.com main page.

    Now onto the main thing, if you are joining a mainly paid traffic run network [ meaning most of the publishers are running paid traffic ] I wouldn't recommend doing incentive on those sites unless they're REALLY good! You'd be better off joining a network that is mainly focused on incentive offers, as those advertisers are willing to pay for incentivized traffic.

    With that being said, i'd say that the problem most likely lies with you. The thing with these networks is that the advertisers scrub people by performance. That means that your EPC depends on how well your traffic converts for the advertiser on the backend [ those offers after they signed up and all ]. And with incentive traffic, that % is pretty low. The advertisers will then scrub you to a point of where they can make a profit/break even from your traffic. That's why sometimes you get someone who really did the offer but showed up no conversions. You're most likely getting scrubbed by the advertiser. If the advertiser is really really not getting anything off the traffic, the CPA network will just take you off the offer.

    Hope that helps. Most of the Top CPA Networks will run this way. Sometimes when first starting off on the offer when the advertiser hasn't determined the quality of your traffic your EPC's will be skyrocketing, and then gradually will get lower or stay the same if your traffic is amazing. That's why Paid Traffic is good and a good landing page is critical for these CPA Networks.

    Hope that helps!
