How much cash is needed for PPC to CPA?

24 replies
The majority of people say that if you have a small budget then don't
even think about jumping into CPA. Especially if you are a newbie like
I am.

My question is How much money does a person need to
start out with PPC to CPA?

I know that this is a general question and there is no absolute answer
because alot of different factors can produce diffent answers.

Any advice would be helpful

    $2-3000 minimum to test the amount of offers needed to find stable, profitable revenue. About $5000 is better.

    It's different for everyone and depends on your skills and relationships as well ass testing and luck. My two cents anyway.

    Thankyou for replying.

    I was curious because I heard one person say that $1000 was around
    a minimum amount to start with. The person is an expert already so he
    might have underestimated the amount that a beginner needs to start
    with because it is now so easy to him.

    Again, I understand that different factors will determine different
    standards.

      When using PPC, the type of niches you are in will decide the cost per click of your PPC keywords (e.g. loan and insurance related kws are expensive in general).

      Possible solution is: find a less expensive niche to start with OR target fewer PPC kws at the begining till you make some money, then move on and pump up your PPC campaigns (e.g. add more kws, optimize your kws & ads, buying some tools/software to help you making more money, etc.).

      Tip: you don't need a million dollar to make another million dollar.

      Just my 2 cents

    You don't neet much money to star PPC campaign there is a daily budget (put it on $10),
    1. Find good keywords
    2. Structure your campaign right
    3. $0,1 - $0,2 per click or less depends on the market

    Practice will teach you: You can spend $5k in 30 days and learn nothing, spend this money for a year is better. (One year experience is better than 1 month)

    As long as you are accurately tracking your results, you don't need much money to get an idea of how well your PPC money is working for you.

    If you start with no budget and expect to get some traction and build your business, you are fighting seriously long odds. You need to run multiple campaigns simultaneously and at least 100 QUALITY clicks per offer to make a decision.

    People start with $20 and make it but that is completely the exception and not the norm at all.

    Too many people think you can just start with nothing in this biz and it's sad because it ain't gonna happen 9.5 out of 10 times.

    i agree if you are doing PPC to CPA you really need to be in the $5,000+ range to see a good test and make sure you split test the mo-fo!!!! I have seen people spend far less and do well but that take a ton of luck - of course i know some affiliate who do organic SEO and buy links and make over 150k net -a month - so who knows

      Hi

      Just trying out Hlola for the past couple of days...initial impressions...7/10...

      I normally use Prosper202 which is the real benchmark for me and as yet Hlola doesn't compare..

    what's the best, user friendly tracker out there which can track both clickbank and other major CPA sites. The problems I have with many tracker is that commission earned in USD, but Google Ads in local currency which does not match up.

    Any hints?

    It depends on the offer.

    I wanted to promote ****. And then I realized I needed 5,000 to even think about getting started with that.

    LOL.

    SO if you find one, make sure you have money or get started early.

      I'd suggest testing 10 campaigns at $10 or $20 a piece.

      $100 to $200 - but I can show you how to make this without paying a penny, posting any articles, making any squidoo lenses, or any of that mess.

    If you don't mind me asking. How did you promote it for free?

    Like honestbizpro said, there are many ways to do this without having to spend a lot if any money. I know something that have been working for me is by offering reviews and giving out free information that goes along with what I have spoken; that would also benefit the person and would inspire them to click on my link are fill out information.

    One of the things that I had to understand is that people already want what you are offering they just need a little extra bump to help them go all the way and by providing honest review along with more free information helps them to decide a lot easier.

    Thanks Again Warriors for being great teachers, and helping new students like I use to be, to understand what works.

    Making money with CPA is no secret. It takes money to make money. However, if you do not know what you are doing, you will end up making less than you spent. With the right guide you can invest little and start seeing money fast and lots of it. Starting with CPA can be costly so you need to know what you are doing first. Jump From a "Rookie" to a Pro...
