just wanted to give some more positive input and information.
As I continue to study more and more all the cpa/affiliate marketing.
Its a no brainer that the "real" money is in Your own product, no need to worry about shaving networks, and if your traffic is legit or not.
Just create your own product, and build your business around it.
That is what I am working on currently, is building my own product becoming the advertiser, full control of my own product.
if i want leverage, I will go into the cpa networks, if not I know how to promote and generate traffic.
Why not keep all the money for me?.. Sometimes it seems like you are working for a corporation, having to follow all these rules, and the people are the top are cutting you short blah blah...
Get out there and create your own product.
just my 2cents
