Hey guys,

I am not at all a CPA guy but I want to get a little taste of it over the next couple of months. My question to you guys/gals is this:

Is it against CPA networks TOS to generate ONLY offline leads?

What about offline leads all from the same city?

I am by no means trying to create fake leads, but rather I want to generate offline leads for my CPA offers here in my home city.

Is this going to be a problem? I don't see why it would as the leads are still legit people.

    No, it's not against the TOS of most CPA networks to generate only offline needs as long as your leads are located in the cities or state which the CPA network accepts for a particular offer. However, the best way to stay out of trouble when promoting CPA offers is by first discussing your marketing strategy with your affiliate manager.

      Hey,

      No that shouldn't be a problem at all. I did loads of offline promotion when I first started and occassionally still run campaigns offline.

      Just have a quick chat with your affiliate manager and inform him of what you're going to be doing and you should be fine

    It's not about the networks' rules, but some advertisers don't like offline traffic. So, before start printing flyers and generating leads, contact your affiliate manager to make sure that this type of traffic is accepted by the offers you intend to promote.

      There has been some issues with fraud lately with offline marketing promotions. So definitely talk to your AM at your network you're working with and explain what you're trying to do. Typically I'd suggest starting with a cost per sale. If you don't have a great relationship with the network you're working with and you go after a cost per sale product it'll be a lot easier for them to trust what you're doing. Run a sale item for a while with good feedback, build trust and you shouldn't have any issue promoting anything you want in the future.

      hi, wmcfer:

      cpa stands for "cost per acquisition" or "cost per action".

      it is a great way of earning income on the internet because you don't need to sell anything to make money: you publish a free offer, let's say teeth whitening, where the prospect who reads your offer just has to fill in his email address (or whatever info is required), when he submits the request for his free teeth whitening sample you get paid! so the great thing is that your "customer" does not even have to decide to pull out her credit card in order for you to get paid for each lead submitted to the cpa network you belong to.

      here is a link about cpa:
      Cost per action - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

      i encourage you to search the warriorforum with the "cpa" keyword, since you will find great free info here about this incredible method to make your online income.

      kind regrads,
      tom

    This will vary offer by offer, normally it's ok, but you NEED to speak with your AM to confirm.

    I agree with what Smaxor said - it really depends on the offer. Make sure your affiliate manager knows EXACTLY what you are doing and what offer you are running it on.

    That way they can check with the advertiser and make sure that they'll allow it. Some advertisers strictly do not want it - while others are a bit more open to it.
