    My Suggestion for Affiliate Marketing: Never use Email Submits

    Hey guys,

    After being pissed around by 3 companies (and about 2-3k) in regards to email submit offers I have the following advice:

    Never use email submit offers unless you want to risk not being paid.

    Most affiliate networks will tell you "Our email submits are converting high and we will pay out for them no matter what"

    And thats just a load of crap and a few months down the line and them saying "No we won't be paying out your leads because of some excuse" I'm sure you will be annoyed as I was.

    If you want to risk not being paid go ahead

    A good amount of that payment was supposed to be mine. I'm still struggling because of it!

    I differ this. i guess if you are with good affiliate network and are promoting a whitehat way there is no problem of getting paid even if its a email submit. offcourse some companies are bull shit but we need to move on and look for other offers.

    I have also stopped promoting Email submit offers for the same reason. I have tried many companies but none of the offers convert. I have more than 100 clicks for some of the offers but all have 1 or 2 conversions. I am pretty sure most of the networks are just shaving leads.

    100 clicks and 1-2 sales = 1-2% conversion ratio. Thats pretty good for emails.

    But personally, I don't do email submits. Most of them are scams. It is funny to see ads like "Blast your email to 75 MILLION recipients. All this for $35." Just think about it. The bandwidth cost would be morethan $35.

    I rely on my own email lists. Maybe someday I allow someone else to post on them.

    U got it wrong..email offers are those where you will get paid when a visitor submits his email to your merchant..and you get $1 - $5 for each email submit depending on the offer you promote.

    not that you have to promote your offer through email..
