Question Regarding CPA Offers & Getting Credit For Somebody Supplying Email, ETC.

4 replies
Hello Warriors:

Question please about CPA offers and how the typical company operates.

If you were promoting 10 CPA offers (I always use fake names as I am not attempting to plug the CPA Company or offer) from ABCD CPA Company would you get credit in the following scenario:

You have 10 offers with the link on a Text File, Word Doc, or Excel Sheet. You send the file to friends, family, co-workers, neighbors (with their permission). They fill out the offers.

Does that count as legit and you get paid the 2.00 or whatever for the email submit or does the person filling out the form always have to be sent to the link via a website, blog, Facebook, Twitter page, etc. so the ABCD CPA Company knows the traffic came from a legit source and no games are being played?

If they don't care how the traffic arrives, wouldn't that enable a lot of fraud?

Thanks for clarification. I'm always curious even if it is not something I partake, to learn about the ins and outs of a form of marketing.

Everyone be well and safe,
CF

    There is a reason you do not ask the company itself. It's very Blackhat.

    Actually a game is being played obviously.

    If you owned the Company would you want leads that were someones prepared list of family and friends? What are the odds they will follow thru in a funnel?

    Just my humble.

      Thanks for reply but question was not answered.

      Black Hat, Grey, or White, could you please tell me (I do not have any CPA Campaigns, it is strictly for knowledge) would the CPA Company detect the folks doing this because the email submits are not coming from a Website, Blog, or Social Media.

      Thanks for you answer.

    It really depends on the Advertiser/Vendor as to what type of traffic they accept. With that said, There are many people that create "How To" .pdf's that they give away. Within these .pdf's there are affiliate links.

    Example: Create .pdf on email marketing and have affiliate links to autoresponders, i.e. Aweber or Getresponse.

    There are alos those that, in the past, have created lists on excel such as "Great Fathers Day Gift Ideas" that had Amazon links to the products.

    Most CPA advertisers are tracking all their links so if they are getting a lot of signups from a bad source then they will just not pay for that source.

    All in all it is probably not a good idea

    A bar of iron cost $5. Made into horseshoes, it's worth $12. Made into needles, it's worth $3500. Made into balance springs for watches, it's worth $300,000. Your value is determined by what you are able to make of yourself

      Hi Agmccall:

      Thanks for well thought out response. As mentioned, this is not something I have done or will consider. It was all about curiosity.

      The logic would dictate that in the day in age of analytics being prevalent from sports to radio/tv ratings to affiliate marketing, trying to undermine the process would not go unnoticed.

      Have a safe and great holiday weekend!
