    So I have been having some success with CPA offers today but I was just wondering one thing.. Let's just say that I am sending a lot of unemployed people to cpa offers with slight incentive. I'm thinking that will will probably hurt the conversions on the advertiser's side, and they will probably notify the cpa network of the bad traffic. Will I get banned, or will I just get paid less per signup?

    I know it's possible to select potential CPA offer clients by their geographical location but surely it's not possible to do the same by occupation (or not in this case); is it?

    In all likely hood they would probably just pull you off the offer

    spread them out over several CPA networks that way your conversion ratio will fly under the radar and all your offers are'nt funnelled thru one CPA. Never know when you may have to jump ship. Doe'snt hurt to have a backup

    damn cuz it converting pretty well.. If only there was a way to see how many purchases they got off of their leads.. You think a $100 product would get less than 10% conversion from their leads? (lead = user signed up).

    Maybe I could just email all of them a fake newspaper promoting that specific product they signed up for, saying why they should buy it, etc. Wonder if that'd raise the conversions back up.

    impalarick, what happens when you run out of networks? I guess you could use your friends' names or something lol. The only prob is that now I have to get accepted a lot, but oh well, I feel better knowing that there's still a way to actually get money off of this method :).

    A lot of AMs hate having to tell you that you have beened banned from running certain offers because it affects their paycheck, too. But most of the time, that's all they will do, they'll request you redirect your links from particular offers because the advertiser is not getting good leads.

    I always like to keep daily earnings very low, no more than $20 per offer, to stay under the radar. A couple weeks ago I got careless and ran a lot of traffic to a couple offers and made about $75 for the day for each, and sure enough, a couple days later I was asked to stop promoting those offers.

    what types of offers were those tho? I was hoping to make at least $50-$100 per day per network. I'm promoting an offer that gets users to sign up with their phone number and address and other stuff, so wouldn't these types of offers convert better on the advertiser's side regardless? (Since they got some personal information).

    I sure hope so..

    When he says spread it over a few networks he means 5 or so.
    With a couple as a back up.

    oic but what if I want to make more than $250 per day? I thought the safe under-the-radar rule was something like $50 per day per network or something?

    you could in theory create multiple accounts at one network, if you can get approved :)
