    My Favorite CPA Networks
    I read lots of forums and see lots of posts that warn against certain networks or list complaints against networks for one reason or another. I also read lots of posts with suggestions of how to be successful. I have learned a lot from reading posts of others and I have avoided disaster by reading forum posts. I am earning five figures a month now because of what I have learned. Now I'd like to give a little something back to others who are just getting started as CPA publishers.

    I have listed some of my favorite networks below based on support, advice, suggestions, timely payment, and even willingness to actually go out a secure offers for me to promote. These networks are listed in no particular order. On a scale of 1 to 10 they all rate at least an 8 for me. I am a publisher with 10 networks. I may add more to this list once they have passed the "payment test".

    MaxBounty
    Copeac
    RocketProfit
    Azoogle

    i feel so blessed by your benevolence.

    if you're towards the newer side of things, don't listen to this 4-posts-so-far bullshitter.

    if you're more developed in advanced tactics (like faking referral headers), have very few morals, are interested in running adware under a cover of privacy, don't mind being a part of the problem with scumming up the world's computers, are able to hide your identity (so when time comes when ftc chases you and other cheaters down, you can easily bolt) and would spam your mothers inbox with porn then folks like azoogle and these others are very likely for you.

    Hi Donuts! I've read and have been amused by many of your posts! I am flattered that one with your experience and noteriety has answered this humble newbies post! I am a real newbie. I have only been in CPA marketing for a few months so I really don't know what it is you're speaking of. Ignorance is bliss I guess . Anyway I don't engage in any tricky marketing techniques because honestly speaking I am not so clever or experienced. But I do bring with me marketing expertise from working in bricks and mortar retail and I employ those techniques to be successful. The CPA networks I mentioned have treated me well. I didn't expect to be attacked and called names for writing about my personal experiences, but since you have deemed it necessary to do so without knowing even the smallest bit about me I think really tells everyone who is the real b--------er regardless of how many posts you have. But I still find you entertaining and even loveable! If that is your real picture!

    LatvianLady, if you did some reading you would understand where Donuts is coming from. You need to read A LOT more before you dismiss what he has to say.

    Hi Loxly! I am not dismissing anything Mr. Donuts has to say. I would never dismiss the voice of experience. If he says a network is bad I believe he must have reason for doing so. I am only speaking from my experience and I guess he speaks from his. However, he is not an expert on me and has no right or grounds to say I am an underhanded marketer or any other pejoritive words about me just because I have experienced success with those networks. It is his comments about me that I dismiss. Bye the way, I have also read a few of your posts and learned from them. Thanks for the leassons!

    He may not be an expert on YOU but he is on the venue you are speaking about. And I am glad you have learned from me and others here, that's the point of posting

    Well have to disagree a little bit. She's talking about how she actually does with those networks. I'm not in them myself so what I have to say about them doesn't matter. It's like somebody was having another problem with another CPA network, xy7 and other good clean affiliates were posting about the great support they get from them.

    They can talk because they actually work with them.

    It's like over the years sometimes I've seen people give advice on merchants when they've never even had one link up. I actually have links up as others so they would actually know.

    I promote basically two specific offers, and since those offers seem to come and go fairly quickly with any given network, I find it necessary to belong to at least ten different networks in order to keep working without interruption. There only seems to be a few CPA networks that even have the offers I specialize in promoting in any sort of volume, so refusing to work with those networks means refusing to work. I personally can't afford to refuse work, and I'm in this to make money like everyone else, so as long as a network treats me fairly I'll promote their offers.

    Donuts,

    I'd respectfully ask that you do not include MaxBounty in your list. You know nothing about me personally, know nothing about how I operate my business, and I don't believe you are even an affiliate of MaxBounty.

    Your suggestions that I am a cheater, somehow hide my real identity and that I have very few morals are very insulting.

    Hi Steve,
    I believe you have misunderstood my post. The list of CPA networks I gave are ones that I think are great and that I am happy to be working with. Support has been great, payments made on time, communication has been great, etc. I have especially enjoyed working with MaxBounty. I only wish there was more there that I could promote. But that isn't your fault, it is mine for choosing the things I chose as a focus.

    In case anyone else misunderstands...MaxBounty, Copeac, Azoogle, and RocketProfit are my favorite networks to work with. I have NOT had any hassles with them. I have been paid on time, had great support, easy communication, and as I said some of them actually went out and found offers for me to promote when something wasn't readily available. If not for them success would be much more difficult for me.

    What about considering how those networks treat others?

    By the way, I never said they didn't make you money or that they don't provide you good service or that they didn't pay you on time and go out of their way to help you. But where you are doing yourself and others here a disservice here, is in what you're not discussing about sub-affiliate CPA networks. Perhaps you're ignorant of the things these parties engage in or perhaps you have no morals / don't care - nonetheless, the ability to make money shouldn't be your only criteria in choosing what you do with your time, money and efforts.

    If making money is your only criteria and you choose to cohort with thieves, you are complicit in providing cover (and volume) for their illicit activities at the very least. You're not building a sustainable business because you don't value your merchant partner's contribution to the relationship. And you're certainly not doing newbies any favors by discussing your gains without discussing the negative KNOWN aspects of the parties you're involved with.

    Read these recent threads and begin to recognize that sometimes nice guys, arent.

    If we're going to work towards getting our respective lists correct, please add ignorant to your list above.

    Mr Donuts,
    Assuming that all you say is true and that these and other networks have done bad things in the past, has anyone taken the time to investigate how they are operating now? Has anyone tried to find out if they have cleaned up their acts due to competition, pressure from forums, loss of advertisers, etc. Is there no room for redemption or are they doomed to hell forever without a chance to reconcile and improve. [edit] As I said before, if a network treats me fairly I'll promote their offers. If everyone did it this way bad networks would go out of existence and you wouldn't have to beat your drum anymore.

    LatvianLady, your last post is by far the most blasphemous, heretical, offensive post I've ever read. It definitely takes the cake for blatant hypocricy, hands down.

    Please don't drag The Lord into your crock of bullshit.

    Donuts....Heavy on the Do (as in $$$) and Lite on the Nuts....my hero and preserver of my sanity.

    LatvianLady go ahead and stick your head in the sand, you certainly won't be alone. But if you want a long-term viable business, I wouldn't be putting all my eggs in the CPA Network basket.

    And just because you don't see how they are harming your business doesn't mean that they aren't. Some things aren't as obvious as reversing leads or not paying. Do some research on some of the companies you've listed. There are infinite ways to cheat and some are rather good at it. And yeah...I watch for true reform in companies...not PR spin and smoke and mirrors. But reform is hard for companies when their fundamental business model is built on a pile of shit. And that shit is stinking up our whole industry and will eventually hit the fan. Just be sure your protected from the back blow when it hits.

    As I said, I read a lot of forums and I have found about 30 CPA networks that are mentioned consistently. Everyone gives the same basic list. And all of them are bad according to one person or another. But someone is working with them or they would go out of business. If I posed the question of who any of you would say are good networks to work with what would be your answer? And in the next posting will someone have something bad to say about them too? Let's try it and see. I don't know of any network in existence about which someone has not had something negative to say. So who do you work with...no one? Should everyone just forget about the CPA business and go work at Walmart? Like I said, if they treat me fine, I promote them.

    LL is a troll.
    Responding only feeds the troll and allows it to continue.
    I'm surprised it has not touted its success in pay-per-install.
