    Hello All,

    I have a question here.

    Just wanted to know what are the different methods that are called as incentivizing.

    I joined Hydra 2 days before and in all the offer they say that "May be Incentivized - No"

    I am planning to do a poll method for one of the campain in Hydra which again says "No" to Incentivized.

    Am i against the TOS now?

    Could someone give me an idea to be on safer side.

    Thanks

    I don't do polls, but If my understanding is correct, incentivizing is defined as giving something in exchange for filling it in. In a poll method the usual system (there are variations that needs to use incentivized) you ask them to fill out a poll and IF they want a free xxx they put in their email and start doing whatever the advertiser asks them to do.

    Incentivized means you are offering an incentive (a bonus or bribe) to get the person to fill out the offer. The incentive could be anything (access to something, a password, an eBook, a software program, cash, gift cards, etc). If the person is filling out the offer to get what you are offering, not necessarily because they are interested in the offer itself, that means it was incentivized. That is what it means. Get it?

    Ask your AM if polls are okay, because I asked my AM at Copeac and he said it's fine to use any offers with polls and not just incentivized offers.

    CPA networks can be pretty stupid sometimes. Maxbounty doesn't allow using their INCENTIVIZED offers on incentivized site.

    WTH are they called incentivized offers then ?

    Some advertisers will tell you that just having "chance to win" in your ad or lander is incentivised... anything to chargeback I guess...
