    Craiglist + CPA = blackhat (I think you already knew this). Yes, craiglist was really good few years ago for promoting different CPA offers and even e-whoring. But, now there's such a competition that it's very hard to trick people sign up for your offers.

    If you're tricking the user in anyway, you're ability to be paid for your efforts is 50/50 at best.

      Craigslist is just traffic and isn't just about tricking people. That's what 99% of CPAers who try Craigslist do, but that's the wrong way to approach it. Like Coach said, tricking people will likely get your commissions denied so it's not worth it.


      I'm tired of defending CL as a good traffic source because most people want to take shortcuts and do it the wrong way. But I will say this...

      For 95% of marketers reading this, stay away from CL. For the 5% who are willing to work within the rules of CL and who are willing to think a little bit creatively, CL can be a goldmine.

      Just saying

    Excuse me for posting to this old thread, but I think it is better to post into existing topic related to craigslist and cpa. I have a working method that brings $90-$100 daily (but it requires some daily manual work).

    If anyone is interested just send PM, I will share it with the warriorforum members for free.

      Banned by whom? Craigslist ADs are related to the affiliate offer that you're promoting. Affiliate program owner gets new customers. Why would you get banned?

      I personally used craigslist for cpa for years, and never got banned.

    Plenty of BlueFart craigslist methods to do, but do you really want to get banned from your CPA Network, and possible all CPA networks? Not worth it Imo, but Ewhoring can make you a lot of money really fast, so you never know......some are willing to risk it all Goodluck!

    Craiglists+CPA= a very short term way to make money

    Its only a matter of time before craigslist finds a way to stop all the people sending credit card and FREE IPHONE offers

    Using craigslist to "trick" users is in violation of almost every major CPA network's T&C and in violation of Craiglist's T&C. It's illegal and unethical

      Have you considered using craigslist to not trick users? That works too.

      Gotta know how to qualify and filter your traffic.

      As far as advertisers and networks not liking the traffic its not always true and its easy to filter or "hide" that the traffic/lead actually originated from craigslist.

      Getting traffic to your own offers, clickbank offers, or CPA offers that originate from CL can be profitable.

      The ROI on CL can also be REALLY HIGH. Much higher than PPC/Media buying. Less Risk too as its cheaper to test.

          when it comes to craigslist it has a lot to do with creativity of the offer and how you qualify/filter the traffic to the CPA/CB/Whatever offer you promote.

          i personally like CL because its less risk (money) to start and scale up. PPC/Media Buying can be more risky when starting out and scaling up.

          Then a working offer you have on CL you can take to PPC/Media Buy with the money you already made.

          CL is a good place to start if you can get ads up. You don't need 10-20-50 ads up a day to make money, but you will certainly make more if you do have a working method.

            I would love to see the entire sales funnel throughout this system. I actually think CL traffic is not as bad as made out to be. It's the "tricksters" that ruin things.

              I can tell you how the sales funnel works but not my niche. The niche and method is not being used by anyone else on craigslist. Just a creative method. The key is getting something to work and getting posts up for cheapest price possible so ROI is highest.

              For this method Im posting a direct link on craigslist to my website. The person goes to my website and fills out information - then I direct them to my offer and at the same time they receive an email from my site.

              Then my callers call each person up following up with them helping them complete the offer and/or asking why they didnt do it. My site filters leads before they get to the CPA offer and I capture information from them and follow up with phone calls and emails.

                Most of the time Craigslist traffic is not allowed. There are many ways around and ones that keep popping up to profit from CL. My suggetion: talk to your AM. Best bet to not get screwed, but you still take the chance.

                  I'll say it over and over. Craigslist is not allowed, and most likely if you are using craigslist you are doing something fraudulent, misleading and illegal.

                  Again: Putting advertisements that trick users is not only unethical, but in many cases illegal.

                    Thats incorrect.

                    Most networks say they don't allow it but when you speak to the AM/Advertiser it can be a different story. Especially when you tell them not to pay if it doesn't back out for them/or if they dont get paid.

                    Generally speaking you are right, but it is not always the case. For smart marketers we just ask personally or we dont ask and still make it happen.

                    I can build a list off craigslist and send links in my email as well as banners and text on my website to filter traffic as it is not directly from craigslist they are from my list now.

                    This thread is about CPA, but craigslist can be used to make money outside of CPA like selling your own product/service or even clickbank.

                    You do not have to put up misleading ads on craigslist to make money. Your just generalizing all craigslist marketers into one category. Thats like saying all "internet marketing" or "internet products" are a scam because there is a crowd out there scamming people. Get real- its BS.

                      Sorry, mainly talking about people who put fake ads about products. Ie, I have a IPOD, then send them to another site. That's potentially illegal and a violation of Craigslist T&C. I would be concerned about possibly being a test case for Craigslist.

                  Yup they have to call hundreds of people. My callers call even if they do fill out the offer. We call everyone that signs up to my site. And my site isnt just an email and phone number. We get tons of information from the people.

                  The payouts I deal with pay over 20+. Right now I only have one offer but I can add more. Some offers can pay 30+ for single offer and $50-100 for a sale.

                    Your approach to using Craigslist is one of the smartest I've seen in AGES..

                    I see exactly what Pace Lattin is talking about though. 99.9% of people are going to put a fake product up and try to bait/switch the consumer.

                    I can tell you are using it as a legitimate traffic source ( purely whitehat ), and that is what most people fail to see about Craigslist.

                    I'd like to add you to my Skype too, if you use it.

    Best to stay away from CL when it comes to CPA as most offers don't allow it. However, if you feel comfortable with it, it's still always best to check with your AM.
