    Guys,

    I need some general insights (not methods), as well as maybe an ethics check on filling out ones own offers. I have a (purchased) method that is pretty airtight. I'm wondering - if I spread out over 20 or so affiliate networks, is it likely that I'll get bounced for low (or no) conversions? I could probably send a couple of leads for a couple of high-paying offerings on each network (I would have other traffic as well, although the quality might not be that high). I really just want to earn the money back that I paid for the method - I'm not really interested in doing this long term. Thoughts are appreciated.

    -e-

    If you spread them out accross networks, and only do a few offers, maybe just above the minimum to be paid, I dont see any problems.
    Worst case usually after a while, you might either get booted from teh network, or told to stop promoting the offer, due to "poor lead quality". In those cases, you usually still get paid before getting shown the door, this is assuming you did it SMARTLY, i.e. no crap proxies, clearing cookies & cache, no putting "123 Fuckyou St." as address, etc.

    However, if you do too much leads, and none convert, you might get kicked out because of fraud, and then... you dont get paid.

    Think of it this way... if you did 5 leads, and no one converted to buy the full product or whatever... then it could simply mean the people werent interested in the product, were looking for freebies, etc.

    But if you have 200 leads... and not one single one buys anything... then the company will start asking itself some serious questions as to what the hell is going on, as well as giving them a strong excuse NOT to pay you.

    As for the "ethics" part... I wont even bother getting into that, theres a few posts devoted to that already in different threads. This is the Black Hats forum after all... so I dont think anyone would start crying "Waahhh!! Wahhh! Youre stealing! Bad!"

    So then you'd just buy traffic to offset this all then?

    Yes, exactly.
