Got Accepted into First CPA Network I Tried!

16 replies
Thanks Kenster and others who emphasized how important it is to CALL the CPA.

I applied for MaxBounty yesterday, left a message this am, saying I was calling about my application, and just had a pleasant conversation with my affiliate rep.

Her first question was, "Have you done any CPA advertising before?"

My answer was, "I'm going to be completely honest with you. No I haven't."

Then I went on to explain how I was transitioning from an offline business that was costing me thousands a month in advertising, and how I was getting education and training from the Warrior Forum, etc., etc.

She told me on the phone that I was accepted.

Yeah!

p.s. - I don't think it was my website that got me in: Get Rid of Your Double Chin

    SWEEEEEEEEEEEET. Congrats and goes to show that honesty goes a long way. Not sure how much knowledge you have but I think its a good argument if you can explain you have never done CPA but know a lot about it and am ready to start promoting.

    Of course you will need to have the lingo and knowledge to justify it.

    But goes to show the networks aren't just looking for million dollar affiliates!

    Congrats, now time to start promoting the offers. MB is great!

      Kenster - Thanks. You know I'm only on page 24 of your guide, and I've still got to read it through another 3 times (per your instructions.)

      Just for fun, I've put a banner ad on one of my blogs and have sent out some tweets.

      No conversions yet (I'm not suprised) but at least I can test the MB tracking.

    It's a funny business. I was accepted the first four times. When I applied to the fifth, I was turned down, even though I mentioned that I was already doing business with four other CPA companies.

    Got accepted to Max Bounty easy, didn't call my rep, she called me. Told her I didn't know a thing but do know SEO, and highly motivated to learn the rest. Got accepted on the phone. Real short conversation.

    Nice one!!

    I just recently got accepted into one of the big daddies @ neverblue.

    What a lot of people don't realise is that it's in the network's best interest to get motivated affiliates onboard, so as long as you walk the walk and talk the talk you'll be fine.

    My brother in law, is trying to get into the ewa network - Let's see how that one pans out.

      I just got accepted in my first CPA network also. It was very easy. I just called the network and was promised a return call that same day. A few hours later they called back. They asked about my traffic generation methods and that was basically it.

    It's kind of funny how many people overlook this simple thing (the call).. and its not even as much of what you say opposed to actually calling

    I take a slightly differnet approach and its got me in every time.

    I make a high quality application then I just wait for them to call me. I put the onus on them. When they do call I am honest with them but before I finish telling them what i do I get accepted no problems. Sometimes Ive had very long conversations with the rep only because they are always very interested in the things I am doing.

    Ive done this with Maxbounty and Copeac - works for me anyway!!
