Hello warriors, I know most of the cpa companies dont like craiglist traffic,

I have access to a tool that can get me countless leads and emails from CL,how can I use these leads?. and can I use these leads any other way besides cpa?
Thank you fellow warriors!

    Using Craigslist traffic could get you banned from many networks. They have a knack of finding out what their affiliates are up to and will discover your source of traffic.

    I've bid on "Craigslist" via PPC and PPV... and AN still get pissy about it.

    The bottom line is Craigslist produces shitty lead... people broke looking for a job, people broke looking for deals, people looking for sex .... ect.

      Besides CPA companies not liking Craigslist, Craigslist is a horrible way to gain leads. This is based on my personal experiences, but I'd avoid it.

    In my experience, Craigslist definitely generates quality much lower than desired in a promotion with CPA. With CPAlead, we do not accept this traffic source at all.

    There are many other ways to drive traffic that you could focus on which would be worth your time. Just my two cents !

    Craigslist can bring in some solid leads. I used to use it personally 5 or so years ago to market several biz opps and employment related offers; made a killing. However, most networks do not have any offers that allow Craigslist traffic as their advertiser selection does not allow it. Almost every offer we have in our system also does not allow this type of traffic but we do have a connection with several advertisers who are always looking for Craigslist traffic. We have ran into countless advertisers in the past who wanted nothing but Craigslist traffic, but everything is based on the advertiser / product owner on what they allow. If there is any specific vertical you are trying to capitalize on, we would be more than happy to discuss.

    Craigslist use to be awesome with CPA but the networks have come to despise Cl traffic. It's easy to just find another source of traffic.

    CL traffic is mostly crap. Advertisers don't want it. Unless they specifically tell you they DO, then don't send it.

    Why do you want to try to hide it and send it up to the affiliate networks when they are telling you to not send leads from that traffic source?

    Don't you understand that if you send bad leads to advertisers, they will stop running offers on affiliate networks? And guess what happens? No more money for you.
    Why would you risk screwing up the goose that lays the golden eggs by trying to rip them off?

      No, they don't understand that. Some will never understand that this industry is about the advertisers making money - not the networks nor the affiliates. If the advertisers aren't getting a return on their investment by getting good leads and ultimately making money from those leads, they'll take their advertising dollars elsewhere. Trying to circumvent the system, and hide traffic, etc., hurts all of us.

    Some of our clients who have always requested and ONLY requested craigslist traffic were: Ticket selling, Car Dealerships, Junk Car Buying, MLM (alot of these), Gig related campaigns, Several Call Centers would also be operated by obtaining their inbound calls using Craigslist. These type of industries though are completely different then your typical cpa advertisers. There is a need though for Craigslist traffic / leads.
