A lot of people like to run email submit offers, but I bet you didn’t know many of them are already setup to be pre-poppable, did you? Even if nothing is mentioned in the description at the CPA network, simply try appending
&email@example.com to your affiliate link and see if it works.
&email= doesn’t work, also try
&firstname.lastname@example.org and see if that does it. If that doesn’t work either, then chances are that email submit is not pre-poppable – but try asking your AM to be sure.
Why Is This Useful?
This is allows you to create your own landing pages that are optimized for the “angle” you are going for. This allows you to craft landing pages that are perfectly optimized for the size of the CPV pop at the network you are using. Maybe you can’t direct-link because it has an annoying exit-pop on it and your traffic source will not approve it.
Regardless, learning how to make landing pages is huge for your success as an affiliate (in my opinion), so you might as well get started now learning the basics of html/css/php.
How to Stay Off The Email Submit Scrub
Has this happened to you? You setup a campaign and it’s performing great for the first day. Then, on day 2 the scrub starts setting in and you are no longer profitable. You start screaming expletives and start wondering how people make all this work.
The thing is, companies cannot afford to give you $1.35 or whatever if your traffic sucks! Think about it: Would you pay an affiliate for useless emails of people who never fill out the offers you need to make money? No, you wouldn’t – and these companies don’t either. They will scrub your ass so hard that your epc‘s go raw.
Okay, so how can you stay off the email submit scrub? Simply by driving quality traffic and using a landing page is the best way to do that. You want the highest % of people who at least sign up with all their information on Page 2 of the email submit funnel. And you want the highest % of people to start filling out offers because that is what the advertiser needs to make money.
A few years ago their was a guru “report” by Jonathan Van Clute called “Pre-Pop Profits”. In it he showed this landing page:
Can you see why the leads coming from this landing page are so much higher quality than the norm? They instruct people what they must do to claim their prize. And since the instructions are there, a bigger percentage of people do it. And since the advertiser is now making money from your traffic, they won’t kick you off the offer or scrub you to hell.
