I would definitely call them right after you hit the submit button.
Be very confident, but not arrogant.
Tell them you promote using ppc. They may ask you for a website. This is to trip you up. Emphasize you are driving traffic using ppc.
Ask them, "What's hot?" and "Any good exclusives?" If you know, tell them what offer(s) you plan to promote. If you can tie the offer with a news event...even better. Let them know you are a player in this game and not some tire kicker.
But here is one secret, that will get you approved, I've never told anyone this and it works every time....
Start DROPPING NAMES!!!
Say something like, "Yeah, I been around and was coached by Amit over at PPC Classroom"or "I was trained by Gauher...let's make some money..." Something like that. They all know Gauher, Mark Roth, Anik, Amish Shah, Keith Baxter. You can also start dropping their competitors names, ie "Yeah, I'm over at Azoogle and wanted to know what offers you guys have.". For you copywriters out there, this is using social proof at its best!!!
Hey that just reminds me. Call modernclick.com. They are owned by Keith Baxter. He'll let you in. If you have any problems with modernclick...PM me!
Hope this helps
