Thank You For Denying Me

15 replies
I not being sarcastic, it mean from the heart. Not long ago, I apply for a big well known cpa network. And today I got the reply saying my application denied.

Funny thing is, I don't feel angry or unhappy or those feeling you have, when you don't get what you want.

Actually I feeling glad I got rejected. I know it sound funny or weird to some.

The big reason why I having this feeling, simple I unsure what I want from the start. I one of those who are jack of all trade master of none people.

My focus keeping changing from one to another like a blink of an eye. So it a good thing I got denied. And good the world have no end yet because of this.

Till I get organize, I will then reapply again

Thank for reading this post

    I understand about all the thing actually. SEO, Pay Per Click, Pay Per View, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, etc.

    Problem is I like most 99.99% marketer here who love:
    1. Jump from one offer to another
    2. Keeping buying shining object.
    3. Jump from one traffic to another

    The knowledge is within me, but I love busy myself with useless thing.

      Why do you LOVE to busy yourself with USELESS THINGS??

      You may understand how each of those works in theory but unless you have actually implemented each to the point of profit, then you don't really know how they work.

      In essence why are you studying internet marketing? Are you just reading for enjoyment? or are you looking to really build a business and produce an income?

      I'm really not trying to come across as harsh I'm just curious, I feel if this is merely an interest for you then maybe your efforts will be better channelled elsewhere into another hobby.

      Have you made any money from internet marketing and if so what method did you use to make that money?

      I was like you, 1 to 2 years ago.

      But, I realize that if I want to actually earn some money, I have to focus on only one and make it a success. Only then I can move on to the next thing.

    I was like that a few months back also. That taught me a lot, however now I am spending about 4 hours a day making sites and backlinking and occassionally popping back to the forum.

    Its a little bit more draining but a lot more satisfying. At least I am doing something now, and learning the doing (Adsense sites)

    I'm with Jason - it might sound harsh, but you really need some focus in your business.

    That doesn't mean that you HAVE to get accepted into this CPA network, but it does mean that you need to pick a strategy and stick with it until you get results from. Stop jumping around from one thing to another... That is one of the sole reasons that so many newbies fail. They can't ever settle down and commit to one method, as you yourself noted.

    So just STOP!

    You have everything you need to succeed except for the work ethic. If you accept that as true, then what are you going to do about it? :confused:

    Take a day or two if you need to, clear your head. Work out a CLEAR business plan or strategy that you are going to implement over the next month, and then STICK TO IT! No matter what. Then at the end of the month, evaluate your progress and make another month-long business plan ( ideally using the same strategies) and continue building your empire one brick at a time.

    I know it's frustrating to see so many shiny objects lying around just waiting to be capitalized on, but at some point you have to become master of your own procrastination and buckle down to start seriously working towards your goals.

      An excellent post. I wouldn't say I was exactly like the OP, but I have been 'studying' IM for a few months now, which I do believe is an important step, as it does help you to reach that stage where you settle down and commit to one thing - but as Stephen and Jason both say above, there is a time for sustained action too. I am at that stage now and intend to start working hard on the area and methods I have chosen to concentrate on.

    In my opinion, the best way to start(without money) on the internet is like this, a very simple, classic, but highly effective method:

    Create a website/blog about something you are passionate about, keep pushing quality content, learn SEO, get in touch with others who share the same passion with you and don't stop.

    I know a lot of guy who start like this and now are successful. Why?
    1. It's about something you love, you'll gonna like what you are doing, so you won't get bored so easily and give up(which is the number 1 reason for failing)
    2. Quality content will attract users, people will share your stuff with their friends or on the internet, word-of-mouth is the most powerful marketing method and it's free
    3. Focusing on only 1 website will help you be organized, allows you more time to create quality content and more time for promoting it

    It may require some time to earn enough money from it, but when you figure out how things work you'll have a stable and successful source of income.

    In my experience, if I get denied, it's typically because the recruitment staff have evaluated the information supplied in my application and determined I have little to no potential in making money legitimately with their network.

    Therefore, in most cases, I'm happy too. As it's typically a denial in my own interest.

    One thing I did was join the war room when I first came to the forum
    as great as it is, all the free stuff in there, IMO that is a bit of a distraction, that room

    every thread is a new idea a new WSO even though its free,
    after a while going to that room you will be so confused and distracted thinking OH OH now I will try this idea, NO NO now I will try this one

    Stay out of that room IMO it takes up too much time and leads you all over the place on wild goose chases

    not saying some of the info there is not valuable, its just that there are SO
    many ideas there you will not know where to focus your time, after a while. The
    more time you spend in that room, actually the worse off you are IMO

    Once i started hanging out on the adsense forum for a few months and concentrating on basic SEO skills, kw research etc etc, that taught me so much. Learning basic kw research and SEO IMO can be applied to any IM method, once you know how to get free traffic and how to get to the top echelons of Google (a critical skill to master IMO) You can monetize those sites a number of ways, with Adsense, or with Amazon, Clickbank, or even with CPA. and the traffic is all free , for the most part. One of my new niches, most of the main kws get 100k + exact searches /month, and they can be monetized with Adsense OR CPA, so those are like double or triple hitters. Well worth the long term strategy of ranking those sites. Imagine being number 1 on google for a 100k/month term? and that term gets $4/click on Adsense? Thats money in the bank


    Now that I feel I have that area under control I came to the CPA forum. to start learning CPA

    That's it about being a noob though everything is so new and exciting. You're first conversion is an incredible high but eventually you'll see a profit and just think damn is that all I need some tweaking to do. You'll settle down in time. Part of the jumping around is good it let's you know what you like and what you don't like.

    I also think you guys are off base by yelling at the OP and saying YOU HAVE TO START DOING XYZ .

    Either the op doesnt need the money, or whatever, they dont need a father to tell them what to do. I am sure that if they really want to settle down and focus they will. If they dont , its their choice also.

    I think I know which major network you applied to!

    I did apply and was accepted after 2+ weeks. But then I decided to turn THEM down.

    For a company that makes profits based on affiliates, I am sure they are making enough money to outsource their approval system 10X over and make a one day turnaround. Instead, they want to make YOU feel like its a priviledge to belong to that network.

    Thank you very much for all the reply. It hard to swallow, but worth much.

    I starting to see the "light" after hanging out at the dark side for sometime. "Reviewing" of the material the dark side offers. Then I notice, it all the same thing I learn since 2007.

    My exposure to internet marketing, come about after joining now defunct success university.

    Back then I have a mentor, but when the news broke out. And the friction at Singapore branch. Thing get ugly, and I get lost.

    While my mentor now success doing forex, and another become a well known im guru.

    I left with nothing.

    These trouble me a lot, feel cheated.

    Then I wonder off, no knowing what to do in life. I just go to work, enjoy the pain and that all.

    Alarm bell start ringing, when new boss come as new demand are order.

    So I scramble to make money online because I want to leave with some money to pay the bill. This lead me to lot of crash and burn moment.

    That my story.

    Again thank you for the reply.


    @RySpencer I blind with cpa offer because, it a easy thing do to

    My second problem is which affiliate network to choose.

    CJ I have 24 offer which I don't bother to do anything after reading horror story about them

    Clickbank same 10 account and nothing happening as I heard horror story about their refund rate.

    market health same due to their pay out, heard bad thing about them

    amazon join nothing happening I dead confuse with them.

    Note this not excuse for me.

    Problem notice I just afraid of these and that which lead to buying shining product hoping the fear will go away.

    I know you guy will screw me for this and thank you for it.
