Rags to Riches in the CPA Kingdom Part - I


Firstly - Welcome to Rags to Riches in the CPA Kingdom.
What this is .... and What this is NOT!


What this is: (This is what I hope to achieve, with the thread)
  • Your hub for starting your own successful online CPA business
  • Why you should be in CPA marketing right now!
  • How to think like a marketer! From active marketing to smart marketing
  • How to combine online technology with smart marketing, and still keep the flow!
  • How to outsource smart and achieve reasonable goals.
  • How to automate, scale and move on!


What this is NOT:
This is Not your quick magic bullet system to success, you are Not going to wake up tomorrow morning and be stinking rich, unless you take action!

You need to learn from this, put this in action (Test test test), contribute and you will succeed.

Ok so lets get started,

So you have been reading thread after thread, and the whole CPA marketing buzz has got you going.
Well there is a good reason why you are feeling this way, cause it is rocking and you need to be there now to get your peace of the pie! Like they say - "You snoozzzzz you loooossseee"

You need to stay focus, be prepared and just do it!

But hey do you have a plan of action yet??

Before we dig-in, I need you too take a couple of min, think through what you want from your long term goals (flash thought), then a quick thought of what your short term plans are, now get your long term plan to blend in with your short term and vice verse. I am sure you will agree just by doing so, this gives you a good idea of where you are now, where you are planning to be in a few moths, and where you are planning to be in the long run! - I am sure a lot of you must have very exciting CPA fortune futures!

So first we have:
  1. Networks:
    Use this thread as your wiki to finding great new CPA Networks, find great new offers in new networks.
    Applying to networks - This is not such a big deal! Just take the time, answer the questions as honest as possible, and signup - punto. * We can create a complete thread about this topic, the most important is to sign-up. (If you are going for a job interview and they expect you to fill out an application, which 99% expected world wide, how would you go about doing this? If you really want the job, then you are going to complete that application in flash time and as accurate and correct as possible- there is no difference in the CPA Industrty, the only difference is, that you are not applying for a job :-)
  2. Campaigns:
    Start with smaller campaigns at first, then work your way up to bigger fish. Remember advertisers know very well what the market prices are for campaigns, cost per click etc etc, so if you are looking at higher paying offers, then you need to take in consideration that you might (listen to might, there are exceptions to the rule) be entering a very competitive niche! Check out epc (earning per click - once again this differs from campaign to campaign), network earning, get an over all feeling for the campaign and the market available for the campaign.


  1. Promotional methods - Driving traffic baby:
This is once again a thread on its own, but start with free methods (even though there is no such thing as free traffic, your time and effort is not free!) of traffic, then use a
percentage of your monthly earnings, reinvest into paid searches.
Jump into the paid traffic now! (This is my personal opinion - and yes you are going to loose money, and yes I have lost money, but I was able to recover all my losses within several days!)

Start with:
  1. PPV
  2. Myads
  3. Facebook (cpm)
  4. Google adwords
  5. PPC

Test and Tracking


This is where the fun part of CPA marketing starts, if you are not testing and tracking, then you are loosing and leaving a lot of money on the playing field. You need to test and track virtually everything.


Use (prosper202 / tracking202) - They have an excellent free and paid platform that you can use for all your tracking needs. Learn the word SubID - And from now on everything is SubId'd!


SubID play a vital role in my outsourcing - I have roughly about 93 active video owners. (Im giving away a big traffic source of mine :-) I use SubId and excel spread sheets! - I am running virtually my own affiliate network, within the youtube environmental! My video owners send me quality traffic and they are getting conversions, I am able to record their earnings via the SubID and pay them accordingly!


So remember - there are advertisers out there that are willing to pay million's of dollars, for savvy marketers like you and me, to tap into the billion dollar industry and earn a great living! They expect you to use smart marketing tactics, with simple effective technology to reach your goals. Smart marketers use smart tactics to earn and scale their revenue streams!


Well this is it for now.... (to be honest, I need to take my sister to the airport, she is doing a diving trip around Africa, and she has been bugging me all morning!)


If there are enough thanks, and interests then I will complete this thread in a second edition with more detailed info.

All the best of luck to all the warrior marketers!

If there is any doubts, uncertainty, additional advise, or anything that you would like to know/ask, please feel free to do so and I will try respond back asap)

Best Regards

      As your first step - Have a well strategic plan, that you have thought through with reachable goal. You will need to change your plan of action at a later stage, and you need to be prepared to adapt quick to be able to stay streamline in this industry.

      Once you have a plan of action - Take action.
      Start applying to get into networks.
      Start testing campaigns
      Start tracking campaigns
      But most important be a smart marketer!

      All the best of luck!

      Thanks bud - The most important thing for me is that everyone succeeds, its just getting through the tough times seems to be endless, but once you have cracked the code, is all open road to success.

      I hope you will find the time to put these efforts into practice, you will be surprised to see how well this really works.

              Hi Simtex,

              I don't really do this at all, but if you are prepared to go through a tough interview, as well as good track record (that you will have to prove to me), then I might consider accepting you into SocialGalore.com

              I personally feel its wrong, judging a character cause he is not based in europe or america or any given developed country, and this is the only reason I am prepared to give you a chance - You need to prove me wrong.

              I do though know from experience, that there are several countries, that I will not be naming, that strive on fraudulent leads, so I understand that we as networks are getting tough on applications.

              I am going to say this load and clear right here - You cheat, you out! No second chance, no mercy.

              You play the game fair and square - And I will make you a champion.

              All the best of luck

    Yep it is unfortunate that peoples applications are often declined because of the country they are from, but you have to look at it from all angles. If a network has been burned repeatedly by people of a certain nation, it only makes sense for them to reject future applications from that area. Its just not worth the risk and it stinks for the legit marketers from that country, but its the way it is.

    Its great to see Vince jump in here and offer you a potential spot, should you check out in his rigorous diligence.

    As my mom always said, if there's a will, theres a way. If you want to join a network bad enough, I dont care where youre from, if you try hard enough you can get accepted. Sure you ay have to work 10x harder or show 10x the proof of legitimacy, but at least theres a way!

    Good luck!
