I'm writing this because I want to brag about the type of revenue I've been generating. I've been doing very well with CPA.

Why brag? 3 reasons:

1) I see some people, "Can you really make good money with CPA?" Yes, you can! I quit my job because I literally make more in my sleep than I did during a full work day.

2) I may want to release a CPA WSO in the future, so I want to establish some cheap credibility.

3) I hope you find this inspiring, or maybe even a little maddening. There's nothing wrong with feeling jealous. Jealousy has been a great motivator throughout my life.

My bragging:

I consistently make over $500/day in profit, even on my slowest day. Yesterday I made $1,903.25 in revenue, all with CPA (profit was about $1200). Today I will make more; I'm already over $700 in profit and the day is young.

Here is a screenshot from my Neverblue acct from just today. There are still 14 hours to go in the day, and NB is just ONE of my CPA networks:



Yes, I could easily fake this, but I didn't. Sorry for blocking most of the info out, but I'm cautious (almost forgot to block my aff ID!).

I haven't been doing this long enough to the point where I can retire just yet, but I plan to keep making enough money to be very comfortable. Don't let anyone tell you that you can't make a living with CPA, even in this economy.

So this isn't a total waste of your time, some quick tips:

1) I learned a lot of basic info from the WF when I was just starting, but now that I generally know what I'm doing, I try not to waste too much time here. I've learned 1000 times more through experience than I did reading the WF or any WSOs.

2) You know how most networks list the most popular offers? I make most of my money with offers that aren't on that list. Sure, sometimes I make a lot with popular offers, but more often I promote obscure ones. It's up to you to find the offers that work for you. Don't get distracted by what the network tells you to run.

3) Affiliate managers are there to help you with problems you encounter or to give pay bumps (don't forget to ask!), but they will not give you too many tips on how to make money. If they knew exactly what to do to make money, they would do it themselves (and some do). They can tell you what's popular, but not much more than that.

4) You don't need a coach. I got a coach when I started, and it was a complete waste of money (that individual has since been banned from the WF).

5) I've never begged anyone for tips or to help me out, and I've never met another successful marketer who has either. When I get a message saying, "I just lost my job and I could really use some help with CPA," it makes me feel really bad for them. I try to help, however, there's not much I can say that will help them in the long-term. Sadly, somebody with this mindset probably won't succeed ("Somebody else has the answer, and if they will just tell me, I will be successful").

Anyway, that is my rant and my shameless bragging. Take it for what it's worth.

      Congratulations on your success.

      Yes, as you said... Affiliate Managers become more successful when you become more successful, so keeping a solid relationship with them is essential.

      And, as you said, once you are converting an offer well with quality traffic, absolutely ask for a pay bump on those offers. The worst that can happen is they say no, but if your traffic is good quality and the advertiser likes it, that usually doesn't happen.

      Looking forward to you publishing some of your success methods with the community! Keep it up!

    CPA_Ian,

    If you don't mind me asking what methods are you using to drive traffic to the CPA offers you're promoting?

      Yeah, over $1,000/day in revenue is common, though I'm not quite there in terms of profit. However, I have had the occasional week where I averaged $1000 in profit, including this week (today alone I already generated $1,200 in profit, and the night is still young - plus we got that extra over of daylight savings time here in the U.S., right?).

      More bragging, I know

        Congrats on the success, What kind of traffic source do you use?
        Adwords, PPV or something else.

    Every times a post like this appear, there are 2 types of question that you can see
    1- what is your method?
    2- what is your traffic source

    whoever ask those two don't deserve to be in this business

    I've been officially in the CPA game for about a week now and can really see the potential.

    Hopefully I will be in your shoes within a few months. I know it takes a little while to profect methods and everything, so I will be looking forward to that day!
    $50 a day would be great! haha.

    Hey Ian

    Ahhh, I like it

    Finally someone else who has the balls to say "I make a crapload of money". What's your method?

    I make 5 figures a month solely by doing lead generation + paid traffic (Adwords, Yahoo, BING, Media Buys, FB). Mostly financial offers due to the high margins.

    What about you?

    Hey Ian, Much congrats man!!

    I love to see affiliates talk of their success and rightfully so. Beginners tend to feel sometimes that AMs put them on when we talk of power pubs like yourself doing great.

    Keep it up, I hope shortly I'll see your post showing 1k days.. Much congrats!

        Congrats, keep it up. It's definitely possible. I like how you said you learned 1000 more by doing than reading. Reading is great (sometimes I do too much), but it is so true that you learn way more doing. I still work a normal job as well, I've been in IT for 14 years. I'll hire an engineer who has practical, on-the-job expierience over someone with tons of certs and no experience any day of the week.

    couple of questions: do you make your own landing pages for all the offers? And, what kind of offer payout works best for you? Small like 5-10$ or higher ones?

      That's awesome, I love seeing these results, as I have only been an IM for 5mths now (and made a big $250!), and I have been going nuts over all the info, tips and tricks of the trade etc, so much to learn, but seeing and hearing genuine results like this is very inspirational. I am some what jealous too! But as everyone says find what you're good at and work work work at it.

      Well done!
