I have some questions today concerning email/zip submits:
1. When promoting an offer of this type, do I get paid really after an email or zip code is submitted on the submit page? I opened a bunch of preview landing pages of the offers I'd like to promote (I am with PeerFly) and tried to put in my own email address and see what would happen and in all cases I ended up on another page where I was prompted to fill in more information (my first and last name, my cell phone number, etc.). So, do I really get paid when the email is submitted already or when all of the boxes in the entire chain of pages has been filled out?
2. What I've also seen pop up after submitting an email address was a content-locker which required me to fill out some additional CPA offers to finally claim the free give-away that the primary offer was pitching. Isn't this shady/unethical? I think the person who visits the email submit site should get they landed there for right after submitting the email, am I wrong?
3. How does the advertiser who runs an email submit offer make money? Do they blast email newsletter series at their subscribers and make money promoting someone else's product or their own? In the case mentioned in question 1 (when the advertiser also requires physical address and cell phone), do they also send tangible mail to their prospect? What is the standard scenario?
