Making a PLAN for $50+/day with CPA

by Smalt
17 replies
So guys,since I've been here I've understood that without a plan and a rpoper "path" I won't be able to succeed.

I have decided to put myself down and do some work,that will pay off later.Like no "quick money", no products...just set up a cpa campaign and do different stuff to get traffic.

So,I am in need of a plan,to follow all the time...any help?
Thanks

    No one is going to give you a step-by-step guide on how to succeed and make money.

    I would start trying to make $1/day. Be realistic. Remember you have to spend money to make money in some instances.

    There’s no ONE plan that works for everyone because everyone has different resources and skills. For example, will you be making your own landers or outsourcing? Your budget will greatly affect your plan as well.

    But here’s some stuff I wish someone told me when I first learned about CPA.

    I'd pick one traffic source to start with and master it. When I first started out I made the mistake of trying to do everything at once which resulted in me getting extremely frustrated. Honestly, search is probably the easiest traffic source to learn first but it’s totally up to you.

    Then figure out what you'd like to promote. If you have a limited budget, lower end offers like submits or other lead gen stuff (offers not requiring a credit card like edu) might be best to start out with.


    When it comes to choosing what offers to run, DON'T GUESS!


    Ask your AM what’s hot. Ask him what kind of EPCs the offer is getting. How are other affiliates running it? What type of landers? What traffic source? Yes, you can ask your AM this.

    You can make cpa marketing as easy or as complicated as you want. I prefer to keep things simple and just replicate what’s working for others.

    Do you have hosting already set up? How are you going to track your campaigns? Prosper? Bevo?

    So to sum up here are the main elements you need to figure out before you spend your first dime:

    1. Traffic
    2. Offer
    3. Hosting
    4. Tracking

    choose a niche, do some keyword research, ask your aff manager for help to choose the best converting offer for your niche, track everyting - landing pages, keywords.

    you will spend some money in the beginning to find the profitable keywords/landing page combination, but after removing nonconverting traffic sources you're golden

    All of the above is correct and you should follow it and one of the biggest things you will need to ALWAYS do and I repeat ALWAYS DO is split test everything( which coincides with being able to remove nonconverting keywords, traffic sources, titles ads and so on as convert2seo said ). Always test and track and improve. You will see that split testing a lone is VERY powerful.

    Sticking to one traffic source and mastering it is always a must. Don't hop around and drive yourself crazy and try to learn every single marketing method as this alone can make you feel almost impossible to make a dime in this industry.

    One last thing..stay away from those phony fake ebooks and don't purchase hundreds of how to books.

    Experience is the best teacher. If you learn and prosper from it.

      CPA can be difficult but I've found that some offline flyers work well on colleges around the bookstore for free food offers and stuff like that.

      Here's one you can try to see what happens. I've had success with this one a few months ago. I made a QR code that goes directly to a CPA offer that's a zip submit.

      Just print the qr code on a white sheet of paper or post card and drop them everywhere. People are going to scan the card. If they continue on you get paid. Places like bulletin boards and tables where you see other cards. Get permission first and try adding Scan Me on the card.

      In a couple weeks I'll post my results from my latest effort to let you know if it's still working as well as it did in the past.

        Just curious to know how do people scan the QR code? Do they take it somewhere?

          Sorry I forgot to add that detail. A QR code is a scanable code that people can scan with their smart phones. For Example my personal QR Code is

          So the code is printed on a card with the word scan me in red below it. People with smart phones scan it and get sent right to a CPA offer that's a zip submit or email submit.

          I don't have numbers as I've only done this once and it was very limited, but I made about $20 with only 5 or 6 flyers placed in a couple key locations. Places with foot traffic.

          So if you have a smartphone scan the code above and it will take you to a link where you can follow me on twitter or my Facebook page.

          Hope that helps

            7search (or an equivalent) plus good CPA offers, works well, you have to stay on top of your PPC bidding, but other than that if you find a good offer that converts whether it be zip submit or email or download or whatever, you find one that converts and stay on top of your ppc bidding on 7 search or an equivalent PPC hosting website, then you should start seeing some money, after that just make more campaigns or up the scale size and youll see plenty of doe rolling in Goodluck!

              Thanks guys for "bombing" with replies!

              I'd like to tell you some things about me:
              - I have a very good knowledge of HTML/CSS/PHP,so I can easily make a noce lander for me.
              - I know C++ if this helps in any way :p
              - I have a domain + Offshore Unlimited hosting


              Maybe some more details..but my mail problem is traffic.I cannot decide how to get it and as you say stay with one resource only.

              Also,I don't have any money to spend,so I want to make some from 0.

      Great advice. Particularly "Sticking to one traffic source and mastering it is always a must"

      I got same advice from Warrior Forum's CPA veteran Mike Morgan. He has two great WSO's out on this. Dirt cheap $ too.

    GOOD! At least come out with a PLAN. That will be your guide.

    A lot of people just want to make money online but do not have a plan which is a no no.

    Try use workflowy.com as your to do list. I have it run all the time when I switch my browswer. I use it ALL the time very slick tool

    95% of Warriors ebooks are based on following:
    Find a affiliate product from some affiliate site to promote
    Make sure he got nice comission ( 20 USD or more )
    Make a marketing campaign : Make web site, make nice design, do a SEO, get traffic from backlinks, facebook, twitter, google+, youtube, forums and so on.
    Get ur site in top10 on google with desired keyword
    Make a profit
    Thats it.

      After making the hardest step with the traffic,do sales come automatically?
      And also, how much time does it take to complete all these?
