(The first few paragraphs are just my background) So here is my story. I recently lost my job like many other americans its a tough life out there. Getting a job isnt really the problem its holding it for me. Im no slacker by any means im always on time. I always seek to do the best i can.
I was told by an online friend of mine about this whole cpa thing which i had never heard of prior to him telling me. He had a lot of success and shared many stories with me of others who had the same luck. Well, this pumped me up i took to my bank and scrapped together $50 and bought myself a ebook that my friend recommended. What really caught me about that ebook is that the creator promised to help us. Well he disappeared short after i bought it and that really disappointed me.
A month later i had figured out exactly how to do everything and i was ready to get going. I had dreaded the day for a while in a way as i had to spend a lot more money. Which i didnt have in the first place. I bought a domain and got vps for it from beyond hosting. Then i applied to maxbounty and neverblue. Got accepted. Then i was left to find the best traffic provider. Well the ebook stressed how awesome lead impact was. It was $1000 it hurt me to think about. However, I ended up gutting through it and bought into it.
A week later i got my first campaign set up along with prosper202 for tracking my keywords. Well before i placed a bid on my keywords i checked in with my online friend who promised to help me. When i contacted him there was no response back. I had tried to contact my friend 2 weeks prior just to give a heads up to tell him where im at and there was no response even then.
I ended up launching my campaign anyways and within the first hour or so lost about $50. That really has hit my morale hard. I seeked help from my affilate manager from maxbounty and after about 4 days of waiting for a response of what i should be doing, I got a less than pleasing answer. So no help from them. People on here have told me to buy affplaybook but i just cant afford it.
Today I just realized my vps hosting with beyond hosting expired. Thats another $50! I decided that id try to seek some expert help before i lose anymore money. I knew that this would take some money to get started and your first campaign isnt always a winner. But, I was told that the best people had mentors and thats really what i need.
Nobody likes to share their methods. I get that. I just need some kind of direction from those who have had success with ppv/cpv.
