    Good Day... What's you all's thought on Zip & Email submits?

    I just picked one offer out of one of my affiliate networks and went through to process... and it seems like they (merchant) is upselling them on the back end for all of the TOP paying CPA offers.

    My question is why would I want to exert all of this energy getting people to fill out Zip's and Emails for $1.00 -$1.70?

    As a complete newbie am I missing something here?

    I do understand some money is better than none but. With the energy that go into marketing I think I could channel that energy elsewhere.

    I hope that made sense.

    It is your choice. If you don't fill it is worth it then don't do it.
    Sometimes it is the easiest to do to make $200 bucks.

    Yeah it does seem pretty simple. I just had a thought. Would it be wise (recommended) for me to copy one of these zip / email submit campaigns and collect the email addresses myself?

    And upsell my own CPA affiliate offers. Instead of the 1.00 payout I can collect email addresses that I can sell and hope that someone bites on one of the CPA offers on the back end.

    Do you think that'll work? I'm sure someone has thought of this before. I'm sure the "merchants" behind the "free gift cards" are probably just big time affiliates themselves.

    What do you think? I shouldn't take too much time to code/design landing pages etc.

    if u r going to sell emails than no1 is going to pay u 1$ per id
    and email submits are easiest to promote
    they pay u 1$ for just 1 field

    oh no... I know you can't make too much selling email addresses.

    I didn't mean $1.00 per... actually I don't even care about the email sale. I'm looking at the backend CPA offer... Some of those offers that was promoted behind those email submits pay out $25 - $45 dollars.

    So I wasn't too concerned about the email address.

    The problem is most (read most once again) guys who submit emails or zip will not buy products. Someone who is interested in free iphones or free ringtones will not buy credit card or such. But if you can manage to convert a part of your collected list that would be great. If you are in need of quick cash go for submits. Else build your list.

    They are worth it if you can get cheap advertising and convert them

    It really doesnt matter what your offer is. Traffic is EVERYTHING. If you dont have traffic, you have nothing.

    Then thing to look at is Quality/Quanity. If you have a shitload if untargeted generic traffic, maybe a single field will work for you. But if you have target high quality traffic, direct it to a more complex cpa with a bigger payout or your own product.

    In my opinion - Zips and emails are awesome if you have run hundreds/thousands of people. CPA/creditcard activated offers are better for targeted people where you send maybe lower more target numbers.

    Test, test and then test again and you will figure it out man.

    Doesnt have to be target you just have to tell them they have to do it in order to get something. Thats the ol tride and true method for me of zip/emails then you will always get 30% - not actually because they scrub you to nothing but 30% of the people will fill it in

    Yes sir, that what I noticed is that the zip/email was like get a home depot card but then on then on the second page it was like... "You must choose one of these offers" and the offers had nothing to do with the Home Depot.

    I'll start with just the zip/email and see how that works out.

    I've made some good money with Zip offers, but you need lots of traffic. Doesn't have to be targetted, but when you do have targetted traffic, it works even better.

    If you have someone who is looking for a Best Buy gift card, and you present them with the offer, that coverts better. It's just common sense.

    The trick is to get very cheap traffic that converts. If your thinking adwords, think again. That's few and far between.

    I did really well with PPV traffic for a long time before the niche got saturated. Just my 2 cents.

    Well from my experience, incentive email/zip submits are very temporary if your bring 2000 shitty email submits that go nowhere. Better the traffic, the more leverage you have - then you can start demanding higher rates from your cpa network.
