CPA Coach training program

52 replies
As the title says, im looking to find the best CPA training program. I've been on warrior forum for months as a visitor and now want to start promoting CPA offers through PPC.

As for my experience, im really tech savvy with computer engineering background. I'm also an SEO consultant for small businesses.

I'm trying to choose between PPC Coach, Six Months From Today and William Souza 1-on-1 training.

Which one would be the best if I specifically want to promote CPA offers through PPC?

    If you have the money and strength to start hitting the CPA niche with PPC marketing I truly recommend you to start with the adwords tutorials which are available for free on the internet, here's a good link for you to start at: Learn with Google ? Advice and information about online marketing for businesses

    I can't recommend you a course to begin with since I've always learned everything by my own, most of the times the hard way.

    A quick tip for you would be to start with a few adwords vouchers and do a few test campaigns. You can buy $500 worth of adwords vouchers for as cheap as $5. This way you won't lose big money whenever you stumble upon a campaign that is not that successful.

    Hey thanks for the tip, i'll keep it in mind.
    I've already read tons of books about adwords and such since ive been doing SEO for quite a while and PPC manager. I'm more stuck into the technical aspect of your CPA landing page to the actual CPA offer since with the google update and such, direct linking is a no no, which is why im looking for CPA training itself.

    The only downside of robyun's advice is you'll be banned pretty much instantly for pushing cpa offers on adwords. (There are ways to do it, but it's not as easy as it used to be). You've got be either be a real business or pretend to be one to get on Adwords with CPA offers now.

    That said, there are alternative ppc platforms you can use that work well still.

    Hey PPC Coach, can you explain me the difference between your ppc coach program and six months from today? im trying to debate whihc one to join, then debate between the chosen choice and william's training...

      Sure, I have to say that I own PPC Coach 100% and I am a 50.50 partner with Chad in SMFT though, so I might not be the best guy to ask as I'm very bias. But the difference is SMFT is more of an overall coaching/mentoring site where we can deal with more then just ppc traffic, plus you get Chad too who is awesome and knows his stuff.

      Williams training is also good though. I don't think you'll go wrong with any of the options to be honest.

    If you're looking to specifically learn PPC, then why not join a program designed specifically for that? PPC-Coach has been around a long time and focuses on that as the primary training material

      If you're just starting in the CPA game and test campaigns on your own, your failure rate is high. WHY?

      When you fail on 4-6 campaigns, you stop.
      No one will motivate you to take action.
      You spend more, coaches knows how to minimize testing costs.

      We have different beliefs and believe having a coach is better even if you're already successful. You can share ideas and expand businesses together with your coach

        there are plenty of guys who could be coaches if they so chose, and will share their knowledge and wont charge 160 bucks an hour for the privelage, on boards such as Stack that Money, Aff Playbook etc
        I think the money is better spent there. All the case studies etc teach you plenty. If you google Case studies for POF, case studies for Leadimpact, etc etc, there are tons of examples and case studies that teach you

        now walk in blind and start blowing money? on your own? sure I agree with you, waste of time and money

      What is the difference between PPC Coach - PPC Formula 3.0 and Traffic Blackbook
      {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[6134411].message }}
  • Profile picture of the author Omid
    I'd start with 7search. Its traffic is cheap and good for learning. Just spend a couple of hundred bux and you'll see how it works.

    After you learned how to test and track you campaigns to find the winners you'll be able to go with larger networks with more quality traffic and more $$$

    P.S: I personally know William Souza and tried Traffic Black Book by Chad Hamzeh ("Six Months From Today" owner). Also, PPC-Coach is one of the most respectful mentoring programs. I think you'd learn a lot if you go with any of them but you need to take action which is the most crucial part!

    Hmm tough one

    I started out by just testing stuff myself, then all I do now is PPC (Adowrds) -> collect leads (i.e. insurance) --> Sell leads to companies. Didn't need coaching but a few tips in the right direction from the right people did help a bit

    Any questions just let me know,

    Coaching can really bring a breakthrough in the quest to make an income online. As has been mentioned above, the answers to your questions can be found online (like most answers to many things to be fair). However, a coach condenses all the info so that you do not have to spend infinite amounts of time seeking the information, which oftentimes may not be accurate.

    Whatever coaching program you choose, as long as you follow your coach, your chances of success increase significantly.

    Why are you looking for a coach for PPC?, if you know SEO.thats all you need to make a good amount of money, its a slow process but you cant go wrong, I tried everything, bought many WSO PPC, 7 search, POF, FB, Coaching, nothing really worked, MY CASE, I decided one day to focus on SEO, guess what? I went from minus $1000 to $1000 a month with just one site, my problem was that i wanted to start making money right away, big mistake, PPC might work, but you need lotsa $$$, it you have the money go for it, if you want to go straight to the gold pot SEO, is the way to go..

      Coaching only speed things up and have a proper guide. Be sure you know who's coaching you.

      It boils down to how much action you taking.

      I know someone (highly successful) test about 5-10 campaigns a day . Yes A SINGLE DAY.

      He's definitely more successful than I am and also he doesn't talk as much as I do (hehe) in forums

    When coaches helped me in the past, they were sure to point out crucial mistakes that a typical novice would completely surpass. Believe it or not, there are tons and tons of mini-mistakes that novices make that are costing them money. A coach can monitor every move you make, correcting these subtleties to help you get on the right track. You can go it your own, but I feel like everyone has been coached one way or another in this industry.

    It was after coaching that people really started to understand what it takes to make money.

    If you want personalized 1-on-1 coaching try William's coaching. SMFT and PPC Coach have trial period offers - try them out first and see which one suits you best. All are good if you make good use of them and take action on what you learn.

    If you intend to spend $150-$200 on coaching over the next few months but end up being unable to decide between paid options try a free method. Spend $200 on testing campaigns and post results here on this forum. You'll be pleasantly surprised by the amount of feedback that you get, provided you publish enough details :-).

    I haven't tried any of those, but always heard good things about them.

    If I were in the position to choose, I'd go for Six Month From Today or PPC-Coach. Nothing against Williams' program, but I believe Private Forums are better to learn from.

    ATTENTION: Do you wanna make up to 100$ a DAY with 20 minutes of super-easy work?

    I would've thought there would be one for Warriors members... but can't find any here or on Google, well those I found were from last year so I doubt they are still effective.

    If you could also please state if its a recurring discount (monthly discount) or just the 1st month discount.

          PPC Coach is a coaching site first, course second. I do have a forum with over 150,000 posts from the past 4.5 years and am now actively updating all the content that I show, (to avoid being called outdated). I've trained closer to 9,700 affiliates now, (just checked my stats) and have over 500 posted legit success stories. (some guys don't post theirs).

          I help people succeed with CPA marketing, marketing their own product and marketing their own service if they have one. I also own a couple other membership sites, my own ppc agency and a CPA network which PPC Coach members get access to with their membership. They also get access to several custom coded tools and the PPC Coach Tracker, which is like P202 on steroids.

          PPC Formula is a good course too, but it's a course. You won't get support and coaching with it.

          Traffic Blackbook is far better then PPC Formula imho. It covers more, goes in more depth and the writer knows more then the PPC Formula writer. I have to state I'm bias there to as I'm partners with the Traffic Blackbook owner in sixmonthsfromtoday.com.

          There's been a lot of membership sites launched in the past couple years and some have lasted, others have failed. What's new and cool today might be gone tomorrow. The good part is all these new sites make everyone stay on their toes and provide the most value they can to stay in business. That means the end user gets the best of the best.

          I'm the owner, I was just trying to be funny. Obviously I can't give you an unbiased review. If you do a search on the forum, you can probably find more opinions about it. If you have any specific questions feel free to shoot me a PM or email.

          Yes, it's possible to make much more than $200/day with CPA but it's not going to be easy and it will probably take you a while.

    It's always good to take advantage of the free trials for Adwords or the Bing Marketing Center. Run your tests, keep ads simple, assess bounce. Shut off the ads at the trial amount otherwise a fire will start in your wallet.

    If I remember correctly Rand Fishkin said that around 25% of all traffic clicks on PPC ads. So you're fighting for a significantly smaller portion.

    Here's a tip: One time I saw a guy who who's ad looked like this...

    Title:
    Car Insurance Quotes
    Description:
    (Recommended Site)

    Instead of a little snippet he put "(Recommended Site)". I wonder if it boosted his traffic because people thought it was Google supported?

    Anyway good luck.

    Even some of the greatest athletes in singular sports like tennis , golf etc. have coaches. They might have eventually been successful, but I wonder how long it would have taken them?

    And, would they have maintained their elite status?


    Sure you can learn things on your own for free or cheap, but be prepared to suffer some mental and financial bruises along the way.

    I have go through few courses, read a lot stories, case studies etc online and now I have enought knowledge to making my own campaigns. From this I am learning a lot. But I agree that with professional coach you can become "master" in a short period of time. Because things are hard to master not to learn

    TAKE ACTION!! ( My biggest mistake was that I have never take action, go through lot courses and than need few month to implement what I have learned, so my biggest suggestion is to take action, earn some money, I have in mind few k$ and reinvest this in QUALITY coaching program which will lead you to 1+k$ daily profit.

    Actually, it's not a tactic although seen by many to be one. It's closed to morons. We interview each member that asks to get in. Individually.

    As far as all posts linking in not getting a cut. Can you explain your logic and why you say this? Our affiliate program on the web is tracked via 30 day cookie. We've never had a single complaint from an affiliate either. We've got two of them have make over $5,000+ monthly just from promoting us. It's a closed affiliate program as well only allowing people whom we want to promote us into.
