    This is strange...

    Affiliates may run Adware or Spyware campaigns however they must not promote or market any school brands (via text links, logos, or banners). All marketing efforts must utilize a generic ad unit.

    Does this mean that this advertiser says it is ok to run this via spyware and adware?

    It blows me away that this would be on CJ and they just come out and say it.

    The only terms I see with their program at SAS is:

    We do not accept incentivized traffic

    Sure do reverse a lot. A negative $4.04 for the 30 day EPC.

    Ha, Ha.

    Of course, this is not necessarily a sign that the merchant is bad. This is what happens when a foolish merchant allows an incentive spammer into a leads program. The 7 day EPC is $161. This program is probably dealing with tens of thousands of bogus leads.

    Not all evil comes from merchants and networks. There are evil affiliates as well.

    "Affiliates may run Adware or Spyware campaigns"

    That's a sign to me a merchant is bad.

    Question
    Out of curiosity,how can these online schools pay so much per lead when most people never really follow-up after they sign up.A friend works as an admissions advisor with an online school,she says its real difficult to have people actually enroll.My question is this,i am interested in signing up for the online school affiliate programme and i would love these questions answered.My friend could not answer these questions,so i did a search online and found this site.

    How would you define a lead ?
    Under what circumstances can a lead be disqualified ?
    Are there charge backs?
    What are acceptable and non acceptable forms of promoting these online schools? Can you put flyers out cos i am thinking wide.
    What if someone signs up and the enrollment guy calls and cust says i am not interested,i just signed up just for the fun,is that still considered a lead?

    Thanks.
    Neal.
