The Dark Side Of CPA
Marketing (Avoid these CPA Mistakes)
It's tempting. And I should know.
I'm talking about "Blackhat". Not the kind you buy from
stores and put on your head, but the kind of person you are and what you represent if you do it
I'm talking about "dirty" tactics, methods and strategies
that involve you doing things a little immoral to get what you want more of -- profits -- and doing it
totally against the rules and illegally.
This is what I call the dark side ofCPA market.
It's not about what's right or wrong because it's subjective
and most of it is common sense, but you have to keep in mind who you're hitting below the belt to score
record profits for yourself.
When businesses that provide these offers fail to make money
because they're paying out money they shouldn't be because of BlackhatCPA methods, do you think those businesses stay open for
Even worst. Do you think Blackhatters get away with
They do not. At least, not for long anyway. Because here's
They WILL be caught. If not
now; then tomorrow; and if not tomorrow then certainly within 30 - 60 days. And usually, they catch them off
guard because what black hatters don't know is that they're being "watched" while they continue to do illegal
activity thinking they're getting away with something.
CPA Networks refuse to pay out any monies owed to anyone suspicious of illegal marketing
activities numbering in the hundreds of thousands of wasted dollars.
And do you want to hear the funny
It's just as much, if not more
work, to do blackhat marketing than it does to do "white-hat" (the act of supplying good leads to offers, staying
on the up-and-up,
and not trying to illegally game a working system).
Here's just one reason why you want to stay away from the
blackhat marketing temptation:
They track everything you do. There are records on what
converted and what didn't, IP addresses, servers, even what browser you're using. Let's assume you covered
ALL of your bases, you still won't be able to account for when they do random calls to people who fill out
the most basic email/zip offers forms.
The dark side of CPA marketing is black hat methods. There is nothing out there currently that does
the most damage to the CPA industry than people who think they
can get away with online business murder. No matter how frustrated you are now, it's always worth sticking
with pure White hat methods and strategies that DO work, and will work longer
than any blackhat technique.
