Is it ok to hire a Freelancer to gain CPA Leads

22 replies
I am just wandering. I have a Peerfly account. Not using that account for years and it just have few bucks in my balance. So, my account is still up until now.

I found that there are freelancers in freelancer.com that offer CPA leads for cheap price. Not just about 10 to 20 offers which can be fraud leads, but massive leads like 500, 1000 per week. (Well, I have no experience over CPA marketing. So, that count is a massive count for me.)

The price for that amount of leads looks like affordable to me. So, I would like to test that with my Peerfly account. At the same time I don't want to get banned because of this activity.

So, I would like to ask from guru's that is this method allowed in Peerfly?

    Yes you are allowed to this but you can't do with all offers. Check whether in Allowed marking types, they allow brokering of leads.
    If it is allowed then you can go ahead and do something like this.
    But I think there is lot of risk involved in this because you might be suspend from peerfly if they indulge in any fraudulent activities.

    Best bet would be contact your AM or email Luke.

    I've thought about this too. But "If it's too good to be true, it probably is".

    If the guy can get thousands of leads per week he can be making himself 1000's a week. It sounds a bit dodgy to me and have never tried to do it at the risk of getting banned.

    Also I remember seeing warning emails from my max bounty account talking about avoiding offers from outsourcing sites for CPA leads. I've definately thought about doing the same thing, though.

      That's what exactly I am thinking. But if it's ok to use this method, I am gonna try it. My account is non using account anyway. So, no big risk.

    No no no. Don't use any freelance lead gen service unless you want to risk getting your peerfly account suspended. That's fraud/trash traffic.

        There are tones of posts on how to bring in traffic to your cpa offers.
        Take a deep look on those posts and choose any one method and try to master it before moving on to another.

    Don't do it my friend because they all fake and dead leads which going to take you no where. You gona get banned and black listed.

    Never ever outsource lead generation. I wouldn't go any further then Traffic generation when it comes to out sourcing. Traffic generation and lead generation are way to different thing. Telling some 1 to post 5 article and telling some 1 get you 5 leads are very different things.

    That's a bad lead man. Remember that their is a backend process that advertiser put in their product, if that leads don't convert, they might notice that their is something shady with your leads. Result, either suspension or banned account.

    I could go a lot of places and pay almost nothing for "traffic" that is absolute garbage that wont convert and if they do convert they wont ever buy anything.

    Thats not the type of "traffic" sponsors want. They want buyers, they are in business to make money.
    Try to stick to traditional methods. Never sign up for anyone selling guaranteed cpa conversions type traffic, or we use multiple IPs. What? to hide your scamming?

    See , Nobody is paying you for just an email submit, there are things after that which really matter for the advertiser.
    If you think you will successfully make people to enter their emails ,eventually you will matter no more to the advertisers.
    Not only will they blacklist you but may also ban you from the network forever and forfeit your money.

    Fastest way to get your account banned. Don't do it. These networks are getting smarter now and will detect fradulent leads. Good luck!

    I seen a lot of leads generator on Freelancer.com, he asked me to pay him first then only he will generate the leads for me. Well, i have been scammed before on Freelancer.com and FOR SURE wouldn't repeat it. Don't depend on Freelancer.com if you get scam because they CAN'T do anything. If you still want to try it, you may try for small amount of a few bucks first and see if it works. I would recommend that you avoid to pay them first. It is better if you try to Microworkers website, you can hire people to submit leads and you only pay once you are satisfied with it. BTW, Peerfly doesn't allow incentive traffic. LimelightCPa allows that, so try checking them out.

    I'm with the PPs - too good to be true for sure. Beware of anyone who says that they can send you guaranteed leads in exchange for money. I've never seen a case where this wasn't fraud. If they could really send 1000s of real leads a week, wouldn't they do so through their own account?

    Usually these "guaranteed leads" are just the freelancer paying people to fill out fake info into the lead forms (or doing it themselves). But since the fraudulent leads are being sent through your network account, YOU are the one who ends up paying the price - usually in the form of reversed leads and cancelled accounts.

    Yes this seemed like a no brainer but I did think about it initially. It then hit me that if it were so easy to do so, wouldnt every one in internet marketing to it and then get paid a hell of a lot for literally no work. Then I thought to myself, heck no thanks, Im not risking it! I use these sites for other stuff like fb likes and backlinks tho. Nothing wrong with that. For instance entering fb competitions!

    I have first hand experience with such traffic.

    Firstly, majority of those freelancers (who promise leads) are just scammers who will run away with your money as soon as you send it to them.

    Let's say, a few of these guys are legit, but their "leads" aren't. When I first started out in CPA, it was so tempting, but once I understood the model, I gave up on the idea of freelancer leads.

    It's just common sense. If their leads are that good, why are they selling them?

    So yeah, stay as far as possible.

  • i agree with everyone here. getting someone to send leads through cpa offers would be considered fraud and get you shut down quickly. i am partnered with a cpa company and have seen this happen to lots of people in the past.

    your best bet to generating lead signups to cpa offers is to either use paid marketing or mail directly from your own email list.

    As a partner in a cpa network, i actually sell fresh CPA leads, and they can also be imported into your autoresponder account as well. Alot of out clients mail both CPA offers and clickbank type offers with their leads and do very well. So, instead of setting up a squeeze page and doing adswaps and buying solo ads, you can simply buy CPA leads directly to build your list, then have an autoresponder campaign built up so your new leads get your emails each day with offers, and freebies. This is how alot of the big boys do it these days.

    If anyone is interested in buying fresh CPA leads, get in touch for pricing. Leads start as low as .35 per lead!
