    Hi,

    I just received a couple questions from an affiliatenetwork, can anybody help me what should i answer ?

    1. Is your traffic incentivised or non ?
    2. What countries can you bring traffic from ?
    3. How will you be promoting our offers, by which methods?


    I'm a noob to cpa and don't even know the diff. between incentivised an non-incentivised traffic...please help me :)


    TIA

    non-incentivised (unless it states this is allowed in the t&c's)
    the other 2 cant be answered by anyone but yourself as we don't know what your doing

    if you're getting ready to do blackhat stuff, tell them its non incentive and that you're doing search, emailing, and media buys.

    3. PPC advertising and organic search engine results.

    If you get stuck with #2 I would suggest something like "Although I live in (your country) my site is hosted in the USA and most of my traffic comes from there.

    1) for more guaranteed acceptance, say NO. (unless it's, say, instantdollarz or other network that specializes in incentive traffic). incentivised traffic means you're forcing your visitors to fill in an offer, e.g. an email submit or purchasing a trial or whatever, to gain access to your site's private area, your e-book or whatever.. anyway the case being that they have to fill that offer to gain something.

    2) pretty obvious, what offers your network has? say states, say uk, say whatever they have.. states, canada, uk are usually pretty sure shots

    3) no need to say hardcore ppc if you're not doing it - they may require proof. if you're good at talking about it and faking screenshots, go ahead.. say you have seo sites, you do creative methods like poll sites. say you're starting to do more ppc but not yet so heavily.. anything that you can be sure to TALK with them later on or explain more. Just be honest.

    They are really just trying to make money as well and to be sure you are not an outright scammer. Ask your AM's AIM even and be proactive.. Should work, this has worked for me in the past, even being from outside US (this usually scares people for some reason).

    incentivised is as it states on the tin :D your offering them something (gifts etc) in return for completing your offer etc, i.e giving them an incentive for completing your cpa
