    Most will say no.
    But ask you affiliate manager.
    That's what they are there for.
    They will tell you no.

    And if you are like I was, you do it anyway.:rolleyes:

    Ask your affiliate manager or do it other way. Make a squeeze page and get them on your list instead of sending them directly.

    Money isn't the most important thing in live, but it's reasonably close to oxygen on the "gotta have it" scale.

    I heard of some gurus sending a ton of traffic via cl, but the leads would ultimately turn out to be sub par and aff mgrs would give you the talk about getting banned.

    I could be wrong but can't you build a landing page on craigslist and then once someone clicks on it and it goes to your CPA website you created?

    Craigslist traffic is fraudulent. Any network that openly says they'll accept craigslist traffic doesn't last long. Most of them don't care what you do as long as you're smart about it & don't get caught.

    These restrictions are actually normally set at the offer level and not the network level, but I do not know of any offers or networks that allow this

    There are ways around it, I know of a couple tricks.. Think of it this way you can advertise the offer on your site but have traffic coming from craigslist, traffic still come from your site but is generated by craigslist post.. This works but I do not use it anymore as I have grown past that stage.

    Still use at your own risk!

    Listen, to send clean traffic from CL you haft to redirect to YOUR lander (this does not violate the rules of CPA), then give the user the option to fill the CPA. Just sell the hit on your lander and profit. Don't forget to capture an e-mail for your efforts. Also you can not auto redirect from you lander to the offer, most CPAs will ban this action, however, if the user initiates the action, it is clean.

      Landing page or no landing page, if someone who got to your offer via craigslist goes through the proper channels to report it to the advertiser, you will not be paid any of your commission owed & also sometimes lose your account at the network.

      I was reported for craigslist traffic half a dozen times when I first started in IM. I wasn't even posting a link on CL, I was building lists & sending out email. Lists scanned for known spamtraps, my own landing pages, & everything cloaked. The bottom line with CL traffic is don't get caught & make sure you don't run it to the same network account you're generating legit commission on, because you might just lose that too.

      @Mikestankowski I wouldn't say not worth it, as I spent years generating xx,xxx monthly from CL. But by all means if you have legit traffic sources, that's a better route.

          Are you saying they allow you to link back to a landing page on CL for CPA offers?

          Thanks

    I am curious as to why this would not be permitted? What would be the bad results of promoting on CL?

    although there are still some networks that are still cl friendly i suppose you stay away and look for other traffic source.

    I just got accepted into Max Bounty. Anyone know if they don't like CL posting? Im curious like the other guy...why is this frowned upon? The person is choosing to click your ad and choosing to click your link so it's not like you are hijacking their computer and forcing them to go to your cpa offer....I don't get it...

      This thread is quite funny in a sense and I respect facts being told by people who know the deal within CPA. But you know what i'm really tired of? The fact that majority of people on this thread says no reputable network allows CL or the garbage networks allow CL...honestly I can say that is BS and 9 times outta 10 you don't know what you are talking about and regurgitating answers seen by others.

      I can name 3 reputable networks that in fact do allow CL from my personal experience but I would rather not say to protect my account. It may not be allowed for every offer inside of the network but for most email/zip submits it is for the simple fact that it converts on the backend.

      If you send traffic to a lander you are safe. You might even be able to get away with posting directly on CL if the network allows it. But all of the noob talk about how EVERY network doesn't accept it really irritates me at times. I can tell for a fact that you have neither pushed the boundaries or sat down to speak with your AM about it.

      To answer your question....Yes it does work pick your networks wisely though.

    I would suggest against this, unless your CPA manager says it's okay.

    But also consider, that craigslist basically hates people who promote affiliate offers.

    Keep that in mind.
