    Wow I was off for 2 - 3 years and some wierd stuff is going on. On every offer you have to apply and provide LP info, promotion info etc. Where did the competition security go? AMs asks you all sort of stuff which is no how connected to their business, back in 2009 all what my AM would ask me is: "Can you scale it up?". Today all you get is: "Whats your traffic source, are you doing something shady?,... etc.". And the advertisers... wow just wow. I runned a completely clean promotion, no fake traffic, no shady stuff behind and everything was wrong - fake leads, duplicate leads, same ip blablabla , on other cpa everything is ok with same offer just different country. I dont know if the advertiser has no clue of what "kinda market" he went to, or CPAs dont really know how to sell.

    Thats why I miss EWA so much, they did everything for the affiliates, well they screwed us up but somehow all CPAs does that in the end.

    There are a lot of frauders, these are necessary to prevent them.

    Also it's pretty funny when you know way more than your AM. Many new companies employs people with marketing and IT diplomas but they've no clue what the hell is going on CPA market.

    Always show them a fake LP ;) even if you are doing whitehat stuff or not. Not to be a dick on purpose but the majority of cpa companies are fishing for info for themselves so they can cut you out as the middle man. Also it is a hassle to inform them of changing landing pages just for when you want to run a simple split test, then have to wait for approval, then for these gimps to say no based on a simple rephrasing of the same text, it is madness. Small advertisers clearly don't understand how to sell their own product and large advertisers don't want to learn anything. It leaves a nice opportunity for these managers to exploit.

    Keep a tight lip when you talk about landing pages and traffic sources.

    Well Ive came out of the cave if you want like that because I was trying with offline/online business and because I thought I have enough money to not do BH any more, clearly that was not the case.

    I know all this shit about CPAs and the one who sad that its funny when you know more then your AM, i kinda feel the same. 4 - 5 years I had no fucking clue of what CPA even means, I was trying hard to get in to a CPA, but it was really better. They allowed and like I said didnt ask to much, well at start they ask how do you run traffic blablabla, but now, they want screenshots of PPV, which PPV, which keyword, I mean cmon, its that the way you do stuff. AMs are on answering via skype and for fuck sake they even use some expresions which I havent heard in a million years. Everything is just fucked up, things changed a lot, that was and is the whole point of this thread. I aint saying I am giving up or smthin, but just wanted to express my fellings ... a little like a "haters gonna hate" thread or smthin :D

    Peace out.

    my am said that i have quality leads and converts well and wanted me to scale up and has just given me a .20 pay bump...

    but...

    I am not getting decent conversion on my part. what does that mean? Well, now what I am doing is collecting emails and be monetizing them once they'll get into a decent numbers... :)
