Very interesting approach i must say! Clearly an "out-of-the-box" idea and it gets me thinking.... few years ago i did something similar but then with nude celebs and an payment option, worked like a charm but for some reason i stopped doing this. Maybe it's worth to give it another try with a more web2.0 approach, who knows
This is already being done by people, its a good idea & works.
Your first idea is good, but it's for programmers, i stoped building applications since 2007, but may be i should restart ....
about ebooks and videos, people don't like submitting their emails just if you give them interresting offers ...
Dumb question perhaps but how do you know if a person completed the free offer, CPA offer redirect, etc? What type of CPA offers work well for you in this example and are also confirmable that the visitor completed the action?
Isnt every method in some sort of usage, that doesnt really make any sense:chairshot
You would just check you stats in the cpa network, I would think that anything related would work good.
So you're (or rather one of) the guy(s) that make(s) downloading shit off IsoHunt or PirateBay difficult for non geeks?
*sigh* If I were paid maybe $5-10 for each person that wanted me to show them how to download things properly I wouldn't be here..
Come to think of it... I'll sell anyone reading an 'ebook' on how to do just that.
Jk cool technique. You lil' deviant.
Yeah but how would he associate that person to what the stats show? The stats to be generic, just showing a conversion (or not).
Thanx for all the responses so far - love the feedback! Will be back on 2 morro now. The wife nagging - YOU'RE NEVER OFF THAT BLOODY COMPUTER - I just laugh and tell her how it pays for her cut'n blowdry at that bloody salon.
Great idea, thinking out of the box. Too bad many of us here don't know how to software program..or else i'd try your idea myself.
I'll post an example dummy software for all your delectation tomorrow. Going down the pub now.
Nice, now I need to work out how to automate it and upscale it all!
Just a quick question with the emails what do you do with them apart from cpa offers? Perhaps you could trick them with some kind of thing saying ** YOU HAVE BEEN CAUGHT PIRATING XYZ SOFTWARE ** then post a link to the aff. program of that software - please buy a legitimate copy within 48 hours or you will receive letters from our lawyers or something to that effect, then stick up their ip and all that jazz - can you get their name from the pc?
so, after he fills out the CPA offer and enters his email address in your software, he gets what? the real software, or nothing?
You could also fill out the cpa offer for the customer automatically in the background (webbrowser object, of course if there is no captcha).
I am not sure if someone would enter his real email/data into any fields on some warez site or software.
I get round the 'real email' issue by sending them a username and serial for the 'software' to the email they enter. This is needed to use the software. Of course once these are entered and the software runs it generates an error code, ie. this processor type is not supported etc. By this time they have completed the free offer, or visited my website, or done what I want them to do.
Oh and for anyone with a bit of techie knowledge, the person installing the software cannot get around registration by disconnecting from the internet and typing in the username and serial as they are verified remotely. This allows me to get all the juicy PC info and the email address.
