Anyone actually make a living with CPA?

Anyone out there actually make a living just with CPA offers alone? I've had some success but it seems hard to make a consistent income as offers will just stop converting and then I have to go on to the next one.

What type of offers have you had the most success with?

    Not every time this happenes i do have some offers in my portfolio which i am been running for two years now and they are still here , On other hand i`d say don`t even wait for offers to go down instead you should keep testing other offers too and that's what i do , rite now my 50% budget only goes on testing offers

    And yeah my bills are paid through earnings from CPA Marketing and its my bread n butter

    That's awesome. And maybe you can't answer this, but PPC or SEO? Or something secret.

    Internet marketing is all about testing and learning what works. Yes it can be a painful process and most people will fail, same reason why most brick and mortar businesses fail.

    Nobody will tell you where they are making the most money off of. Whenever one of us does, 500+ wannabes jump onto the product/market/keyword/etc and flood the niche. I've seen it happen many times.

    Most offers/products can be made to work if you take the right approach. Heck, I know somebody that makes a good profit promoting Amazon stuff using Adwords (I'm still stumped on how he does that considering you get like a 4% commission). Which leads to another point - what works for one person won't necessarily work for you.

    There is no secret but consistency and handwork. I can remember when i was noob i was running after secrets too but the day i focused on only one thing only one traffic source that changed my life , believe me choose one traffic source and don't leave it till you succeed in it . I do PPV btw no big secret at all it all requires patience and testing

    Actually there is no secret behind making money with CPA. I'd say only testing and tracking will make you a CPA rockstar. That's what I'm doing and it is not something that you can reach in a few days. Like everything else there is a learning curve.

    Get a coach or a good course and follow their instructions otherwise you have to learn everything by yourself which I wouldn't do.

    Yes there are TONS of people making a living off of CPA marketing (Good Livings). You need to put in the work to get anything back. Read, read, read, and then read some more OR if you prefer to not read about how to do this work. Learn to reverse engineer and constantly do it to successful advertising campaigns. Teach yourself how others are doing it, make it better and do it yourself.

    I think Blamads offer a training or coaching program as well, you should try it and see how it goes.

    It's not your fault ,
    sometimes Google missing something and lose the ability to show real statistics.
    Wait and try to see the next.
    You can do SEO by expert ,it may work I think.

    Tip: When asking if anyone is making a living doing something, also ask what country they are from. There are people from all over the world posting to the forums and cost of living varies greatly.

    If you aren't careful, this happens:

    And that great thing to "earn a living" online won't get you very far in a developed nation. The average Indian doctor makes under $4,000 USD per year. So keep that in mind next time you see posters from that region acting like they swing a big stick in ebiz.



    To answer the question...
    Yes, there are people in the western world making a living with CPA, but it isn't great money unless you can push high levels of traffic and you know how to work it. The caveat with CPA is you are often dealing with a middle man. For instance, if you send insurance leads they are probably going to a broker. You are better off getting an insurance license in your state and keeping the leads for yourself. Your commissions are then an ongoing % of the insurance policy as long as they keep it. You don't get that with CPA. Of course, then we're talking something more involved than throwing some pages up.

    I have a lot of publishers that are either making a living strictly from affiliate marketing or are using affiliate marketing to help fund other online businesses. It's definitely possible

    I know some people making multiple livings a day with CPA, I think you've got to be very prodent to succeed at it over time, and form good relationships with networks you can trust. I think that's one area in particular where a good reputation goes a long, long way.

    CPA can definitely make a full time living, and a very good one at that, but be prepared to invest and likely lose a certain amount of money at the start. It can take a while to test methods out and twist them until they are turning a profit, different offers will suit different methods and testing is the name of the game. Keep going and you will start seeing some results which will propel you on to bigger riches, once you find what works, replicate it and scale it up as much as you can

    I've been blessed to have been making full time living for over 5 years now.

    I've had success with all types of offers. If you have the skills it doesn't matter.

    No better way to say it man, spot on. SEO is, and always has been, fighting a losing battle. Got banned from adsense a couple of weeks ago after all my SEO effort felt better after the recent EMD update tho LOL so technically it just came to me earlier.

    I have been since 2004.

    The thing is there's no secrets. Yes I work for myself but I work MORE then most employees by a long shot. It's not easy or push button or set and forget like most would have you believe. Even with the long term methods, (like list building), you have to maintain it.

    The big affiliates I know put in 16 to 18 hour days 7 days a week. They also make a ton of money but haven't learned to enjoy it yet. (They will with age though).
