I wanted to take some time and explain how to SUCCEED in buying traffic for CPA offers.
I've spent HOURS reading through people's frustrations and feel the need to provide some insight and help.
This is all based on my experience and successes over the last 4 years online.
I'm pretty confident this will cause some controversy - but I'd rather tell the TRUTH then give you some fabrication about how easy it is to succeed online.
The REALITY is affiliate marketing is extremely difficult ... and less then 1% make any money doing it.
So here's what you need to understand.
1.) In today's competitive marketplace ... YOU need to run offers direct with advertisers and avoid networks. The reason being is because most networks take 15 - 20% margins.
Think about it this way ...
IF your competing against a network buying traffic for the same offer on the same traffic platform like Traffic Vance for example, the network has more spending power and will outperform you. You can't compete - hence why most people in affiliate marketing FAIL.
This 15 - 20% margin is many times the PROFIT of a campaign.
This is one way in the difference between success and failure in buying traffic.
I've been doing affiliate marketing for the last 4 years ... AND also am a product owner with my own offers. We focus primarily on bizz opp and skin. The majority of our traffic we buy ourselves ... but also have affiliates that work directly with us.
YOU need to pick "1" market ... master it - then find the owners of the offer directly to succeed.
2.) You need to have the right tracking technology and tools. I've had proprietary tracking technology developed for my company so we can track and optimize our campaigns on a very granular level. Without this, your chances of success in affiliate marketing are DOOMED entirely. Again, just speaking honestly through experience.
3.) If you wanna bank on google and bing to traditional weight loss, skin and bizz opp offers - you need a cloaking solution. These markets make the MOST money - and are the 50k / day campaigns - but you need a cloaker to compete in today's marketplace on the major PPC search engines.
This is a tool my team uses in house and essentially makes buying traffic on Google very SIMPLE.
4.) You need to understand the market. The idea should be to stick to one market ... perform due diligence through understanding WHERE the most profitable media is being purchased - and then reverse engineer the ENTIRE process.
This way your GUARANTEED to succeed when you launch your campaigns.
Think about it ... if you know the guy who is buying 2k worth of traffic a day ... and make 100% ROI ... so making 2k profit ... and you know his text ads, landing pages, offers, keywords, etc - and you take his funnel but change a couple elements of it ... your GONNA make some serious money.
This is how all the big players do it online - and how my company has done it for years.
5.) Have a partner in your traffic business who knows what there doing and can mastermind with you on your campaigns. IF you don't have a second set of eyeballs - and eyeballs from someone with experience to give you advice on how to turn a losing campaign into a 6 figure / day campaign ... your gonna keep losing money.
I'm sorry to be so blunt - but you need to collaborate with people succeeding to begin succeeding yourself. It's the law of business and the universe.
There are many other key ingredients to having a successful traffic business for CPA offers.
My goal in 2013 is to connect with NEW marketers ... whether newbies or advanced ....
I want to give back to the community ... and really help people succeed.
I'd love to connect with you and see how I can help you with your business.
