  • As of Newbie start with $10 per day and check the traffic quality if it convert well then invest more amount.
    Facebook and Bing ads are the best place to promote the offer for more profit.

    CPA is very simple: you get paid when someone clicks on your affiliate link and completes an action. The "action" can be just about anything, but usually consists of: Filling out a form.

      CPA marketing is when you make people take some action (e g. submit an email, or register an account etc.), and you get paid for that.

      It's pretty much the easiest way to make some quick cash online with little to no money to invest.

    There is no Fixed amount here. If you can invest a good amount of money, you may get a good amount return. Here there is no highest or, lowest amount of money to invest. I hope you will understand.

    they pay around $2 per email submit you simply need to get converting traffic to that offer.

    fbads would be a good place start you may want to read some methods on using facebook ads first as it can be costly if you get it wrong.

    Your Am is a good person to ask what traffic providers are working the best with the offers you want to promote its a long shot but some times they tell you don't forget to Geo target or you will be sending traffic to oblivion

    If you don't want to spend any money find out how to market for free. You can market CPA products without spending money. Its been done. I agree with Zephyrion. if you go the free route tho you might consider marketing something other then CPA because companies want results and you gotta know that you know you can bring them results. They also will quiz you before they even accept you on how you will be worthwhile to them. There is tons of other stuff to promote besides CPA.

    This is difficult to say. Because it depends on you, I mean what type traffic you want. It depends on traffic quality. I think

    My honest recommendation is to have 300-500$ to test with, so that you can run ads long enough to get data and possibly make conversions. 1000$ is an even better number.

    Keep in mind this is not "required", I was running ads with 100$ to spend, but I found that having more money would have helped alot.

    Hello, CPA promoting likewise looks great to me, and I was intrigued and discovered something cool.

    The greater part of individuals join a CPA Network, and Promote offers. They utilize PPV Networks are Traffic source, similar to TrafficVance and LeadImpact.

    LeadImpact is anything but difficult to join, and there offer is around $0.015. Which implies If you contribute $10 a day you will get 666 perspectives, It a major bet, If you can get individuals joining from these 666, lets say 20 individuals and you get $2 for every you will earn substantial sums of money.

    In any case, its not the case everytime. A few offers are great while others are most certainly not. So you may free cash. Also, Tracking is better than average, So you can take care of what sources profit and everything you do is to make new crusade and focus on those destinations.

    Expectation this may help you

    It totally depends on experience, how experience you are? This is not all about money, this all about skills, experience, resources, and knowledge. If you are experienced one, you know how to bring maximum ROI. Whereas, an inexperienced one may lose total investment.

    If you are talking about making serious money. Money you can live on, you need at least $3,000 to $5,000 to capitalize your business to START. It takes money to make money.

    You can make money with CPA without a website (arbitrage traffic) or with a website.

    However, you still need traffic and lots of it to make money. You can get that traffic a couple ways, organically or buy it.

    You could literally age and die waiting for organic traffic if your website/ social media page sucks. You will spend countless hours, days, years trying to get meaningful traffic. And then when you think you have the secret sauce, Google, FB, IG or whatever will blow you out of the water with changes to their algorithms or TOS so your hard work and labor go down the drain.

    On the other hand, you can buy targeted traffic with a better chance of making sales or conversions while you are still alive. If anything, with the data you collect quickly you can decide whether the products or services or leads you are marketing is worth even pursuing. This is something you cannot do with search engine optimizing for organic traffic; make quick decisions.

    Everyone ignores that you not only need money to buy traffic but you also need money for tools to operate your CPA business. e.g. you need a tracker $99/mo, you need ad spy tools $200/mo, you need Photoshop, you need a VPS server $50+/mo (not cheap Hostgator stuff) etc.

    You can get free stuff or do it manually but you will be at a disadvantage starting out. The cost for tools alone shows you can't do it for $500 to start. We are talking about a real business not I want to try. "Try" in CPA is guaranteed failure. It's brutal.

    If you don't have at least $3,000 of capital to start and have website and internet skills, then you might consider doing an eCommerce store and buy FB traffic. You are still going to need hundreds of dollars to at least to a 6 month test with concerted effort.

    Also consider what @yasinfaruk said "you may lose your total investment", truer words were never spoken when doing CPA marketing.

    If all of the above makes your stomach turn, then the best and biggest investment to make right now is in our mindset. Get that straight and nothing can hold you back from success. Entrepreneurs have to be tough and resilient.

    All the success to you in your business journey!

    Its all about testing various campaigns and offers to see which converts best as you cannot determined except you do some testing. once you know the winning offers or campaigns you can then decide how much you want to invest in the campaigns to scale it up for more profits.

    Hope that helps
