How many full time CPA Marketers?

30 replies
I have decided to pursue CPA Marketing full time and quit a job I wasn't enjoying. I am wondering how many others in here are making a living from a full time gig doing CPA marketing?

    I am. Not really hard because the NZ dollar is really weak compared to the US (nearly double) so I can live comfortably off a one or two grand a week. It's actually pretty easy to make money online, just concentrate on one method and stick to it until you make money. Do not ever give up and don't try doing too many methods at once or you'll have information (and stress) overload.

      That about sums it up! I think this is pretty much the #1 key to success in anything.

    I'm also a full time cpa marketer.

    The trouble that most people face when they first start is knowing what to do as there are so many different options/methods out there for you to choose from.

    Stick with one and follow it through until you have success. If you focus enough it will happen faster then you think.

    I'm fulltime, but it requires an amazing amount of discipline, especially if your someone that is used to a 9 to 5. You must now treat that business like a 9 to 5, and hopefully you've got enough capital to get your venture off to the right start, cuz you cannot build this business for free.

    But I wish you the best with your new venture, your at least taking control and taking the chance, many wish they could at least do that and they can't, so my hats off to you.

    Avoid info overload, and concentrate maybe on one niche or category at a time. Test, test, test, test, test, test...oh did I mention you need to test?

    Your at the right place, cuz forums like warrior forum are a Godsend, especially for someone like you just starting out.

    Good luck!

      I'd love to get a really realistic estimate on how much capital is really required. How much should I budget for PPC (I know "it depends" but the question is really more...how long x how much -- 4 weeks worth, six weeks at XYZ per day, or what?)

      Then what are the time costs? Do you figure 1 in 5 campaigns will break even? How many do you start at once, etc?

      It's not just traffic generation methods that set your head spinning, so any real world examples are greatly appreciated.

    I want to hear some good CPA stories.
    I bought Gauher Chaudhary PPC Forumula 2.0 3 weeks ago, went through about half of it and then tried to use what I learned to improve a PPC campaign I have for a Clickbank product I am an affiliate for. None of what I implemented made any increase in sales. I got discouraged because I followed the exact advice. I know PPC Formula is geared toward CPA but I thought it would work for affiliate marketing also.

    Additionally, I am working on two major sites which I am planning to launch in 3 weeks which is taking lots of my time.

    The thing with CPA marketing is you have to put time into building landing pages and silo sites. When I hear that guys are getting traffic for pennies, I get discouraged because I don't get how they can get targeted traffic soooo cheap through PPC. The one affiliate landing page I have has PPC clicks at around 40 cents for a 3-5 position in Google. This campaign is profitable. I've tried reducing the CPC but then my sales go down. I get discouraged because I feel that perhaps only these top guys like Gauher/Shoemoney can get clicks this cheap because of their account history.

    Am I wrong?

      I have not purchased PPCF 2.0, so I cannot say without a doubt, but I believe that most of the cheap "for pennies" clicks are in the content network. They probably target specific sites and create ads around the keywords in that site.

      I haven't seen penny clicks through search in quite a while.

      Keep going through the course, keep implementing what Gauher is teaching and I am sure that you will come out profitable in the end.

      I read somewhere that 7/10 CPA campaigns lose money, but once you find that one that is a money maker, you can upscale it like crazy and those 7 don't matter.

      Keep on keeping on and good luck with everything!

      CPA marketing isn't really any different than clickbank. Some offers work, some don't. Some you can direct link, some you will need a solid landing site. I'm not sure what you tried for the clickbank campaign, but any one technique may or may not work for a particular campaign.

      Account history is not as big a factor as people make it out to be. EVERYONE starts out with no account history, yet there are new people every month that are seeing big success with PPC.

      For your original question - I have been full time for almost a year now, started with clickbank and moved to CPA.

      You can make PPC to CPA work if you focus and work on it consistently.

    That's a big step and an important one.

    I quit my crappy job four months after I started CPA marketing. It might have been a bit impulsive but I never looked back. The four months before quiting and a few months after quitting, I lived pretty frugally. And up until now, CPA marketing and website development paid all my bills full time.

    I am about to make the plunge this week. I am in a crappy job with a verbally abusive boss. The job market is rough right now and I've been learning IM for the past year or so. I'm not making enough in IM yet to afford to quit my job but I can't mentally take the stress of my current job. I figure if I just go for it and focus on it 50+ hours per week I will succeed.

    Any mentor types out there want to help me with this plunge, I'm all ears.

    Earlier I mentioned that I was planning on making the leap soon. Well I actually made the leap today. I worked for a verbally abusive boss who constantly threatened me and degraded me. I finally told him to get lost. The little bit of money that I'm making through IM is all I have left. I guess it's time to really ramp it up. I've got to get to where I'm making about $100 per day to be comfortable and continue my current lifestyle. Anyone want to take me under their wing and work hand in hand with me?

    Friday is my last day before going solo. I'm a web developer in Central London and I'm lucky to have had the chance to experience a wide range of skill requirements which have helped me.

    It's a big step, but I'm already making five figures a month from it part-time so I'm not too worried.

    If you're going to work for yourself full-time, you should make it your first priority to get your taxes sorted. It's not worth risking it on the sly.
