What happens to mobile submit leads? Why not keep them for yourself?

    I have seen some nice offers with $8/lead payouts for "free ipad" phone pin submissions, and it makes me wonder what exactly is being done with those leads. I know mobile marketing is about to explode and I want to jump in before things get too saturated or phone spam protection gets more sophisticated. I feel like I would be squandering an opportunity by simply handing over good leads to a CPA for 8 bucks a pop when there is obviously a bigger picture involved if companies can afford the high payouts. What is really being done on the backend?

    You've done no research.

    Have you actually looked at a pin submit offer? They usually make their money by blasting the victim with premium rate texts under the pretext of sending quiz questions or some shit, until the victim opts out . Read the small print on those "free ipad" type offers.

    Also, try a bit of research and digging. The promoter/Advertiser is usually stated.

    Mobile/Ringtones submits blew up years ago. The space has had it's own slaps over the years: disclosure, ease of opt-out etc.

    I, too, would like to get in on owning my own offers. Mobilemessenger is a name I have heard banded about. Check them out.
