I have started learning CPA marketing since last August and actually started testing out in mid Nov while taking part in PublisherChallenge affiliate competition. I've managed to win as a new affiliate signup in the competition and my main strategy is using direct linking in 2nd tier PPC search engine like 7search and Looksmart. Initially, I did make consistent profits of about $7 USD for about consecutive 10 days for all the campaigns I created and I was pretty excited about it as I thought if I can consistently make it for 1 month, I will make a 200 plus dollar profits. However, I do not know what had happened and the leads were reduced significantly which in the end made a lost.
I was thinking whether is it still profitable to make significant money through direct linking to CPA offers from 2nd tier network? Has anyone make big profits through direct linking or should a simple landing page be created?
Thinking of starting direct linking with PPV traffic, has anyone make profits on tat area too?
