CPA? Newbie inside -.-"

10 replies
Greetings Warrior Forum Community!

I'm an absolute newbie to this site especially to to the world of CPA.
I badly need some mentor. Anyone can guide me please? I have some questions:
1. Do I really have to make my own site? Do I really have to buy a host? Or can I just use a free blog? I only have a very little capital.
2. What if I don't know anything about web designing? I don't know how to create a website at all!
3. What hosting site do you recommend?
4. I have no sites as of this moment. Does it mean I can't register to any CPA networks?
5. How can you earn money on CPA?
6. I've read a thread about mobile CPA. Do I have to buy another domain name for that? Or I can just use my old domain?

And also, please give me some advice on how to start. I've read almost all the threads here but I can't really understand how to do it. T_T

    I am also newbie like you. still getting ready. But I think I can answer some of your question as I also asked those question here:

    1. Do I really have to make my own site? Do I really have to buy a host? Or can I just use a free blog? I only have a very little capital.
    You don't have to make your own website. But Free blog will not work. it is better to have a hosting account so that you can promote through landing page. But you can start without your own website.

    2. What if I don't know anything about web designing? I don't know how to create a website at all!
    To Start you don't need to know. web-designing. Making a simple landing page is not that tough though.

    3. What hosting site do you recommend?
    If you buy hosting account I use hostgator. I think you can use freehostia for free.

    4. I have no sites as of this moment. Does it mean I can't register to any CPA networks?
    You can as I got approved from peerfly without having my website. Perfly is very good

    5. How can you earn money on CPA?
    answer will be very big. To make it simple:
    Join in any CPA netwrok. For example " peerfly
    Choose a product
    Advertise that product through (PPC, PPV etc)
    If people take action (Buy, Sign up etc) you will earn

    6. I've read a thread about mobile CPA. Do I have to buy another domain name for that? Or I can just use my old domain?
    I don't know about Mobile CPA

    And also, please give me some advice on how to start. I've read almost all the threads here but I can't really understand how to do it. T_T

    Ask questions here and read other threads. Most probably all of your answers already answered in this forum

    1. In order to be really successful, you will probably want to have a domain for tracking and a domain for hosting your landing pages. Yes, you COULD start without them but it will be rather difficult. Lack of capital can be a big obstacle when starting with CPA, so maybe focus on free traffic methods with CPA first to get some money, then go from there.

    2. Learn how to do it, it's not that difficult. Also, there are plenty of landing page tools out there to help you create them.

    3. Tons of hosting reviews in another subforum here, just check those out. Or, since money is a factor for you, look to see if anyone has a hosting deal running currently.

    4. You can apply to CPA networks without a website. It makes it harder for them to approve you but I personally approve people without websites all the time.

    5. You earn money by getting people to complete the necessary action for the offer. You can get people to do that through a variety of means, but usually paid traffic sources like CPC, media buys and PPV traffic are the most popular.

    7. You can probably use your old domain, there isn't a reason why you shouldn't be able to at least. But mobile CPA has some different factors that go into it so if you're not comfortable with the way CPA works I might suggest not diving into mobile right away. Although it can be cheaper and less competitive.

    Jinnah has answered it perfectly. About promoting product via PPC/PPV you need to go further deep.
    Search about what type of product you must choose to promote. Whats the criteria to select it. And how to promote. You will get plenty of resources.

    All the best.

  • 1. Do I really have to make my own site? Do I really have to buy a host? Or can I just use a free blog? I only have a very little capital.

    You can use wordpress / blogpost. Having your own domain and hosting definitely helps


    2. What if I don't know anything about web designing? I don't know how to create a website at all!

    You do not need, wordpress is easy to use and implement. Best is Google loves wordpress

    3. What hosting site do you recommend?

    Hostgator is one of the best. There are coupons for 1 penny, let me know if you need one

    4. I have no sites as of this moment. Does it mean I can't register to any CPA networks?

    CPA networks expect you to have your own domain. You need to explain how you get traffic. If you can answer it properly, you can get inside the network

    5. How can you earn money on CPA?
    Depends on offers. There are offers for zip submit, email submit, 1st page submit, free trial etc

    6. I've read a thread about mobile CPA. Do I have to buy another domain name for that? Or I can just use my old domain?
    This is again too broad, there are pay per call, pay for app installation etc

    And also, please give me some advice on how to start. I've read almost all the threads here but I can't really understand how to do it. T_T[/QUOTE]

    There are many methods and each one has its own way of working. More than the method, it is about doing it correctly and repeating it. Get a mentor,it helps.

    In order to start look for CPA methods on this very forum and start implementing them yourself. Post questions and look for answers if you have doubts. Almost everyone who is successful with CPA started in this manner. The key is patience and focus. Hope you succeed!

    1. Do I really have to make my own site? Do I really have to buy a host? Or can I just use a free blog? I only have a very little capital.

    Yes, you need your own hosting and own site. Or you can try direct linking at first, but it doesn't typically convert as well.

    2. What if I don't know anything about web designing? I don't know how to create a website at all!

    Google around and take time to learn it, you will need knowledge of HTML and CSS.

    3. What hosting site do you recommend?


    GreenGeeks or HostGator for budget hosting plans, then when you get the money go to a VPS at LiquidWeb or BeyondHosting.

    4. I have no sites as of this moment. Does it mean I can't register to any CPA networks?

    No, you can still apply. If you get denied just call them and explain.

    5. How can you earn money on CPA?

    That is pretty broad question. There is no 1 specific way. Since you are low on cash, I would suggest sticking with Free Traffic Methods.

    6. I've read a thread about mobile CPA. Do I have to buy another domain name for that? Or I can just use my old domain?

    Nearly any domain can work.

    Welcome to Warrior Forum!

    1. Do I really have to make my own site? Do I really have to buy a host? Or can I just use a free blog? I only have a very little capital.

    No! You don't need to make any website if you use paid traffic such as PPV, PPC, PoF, Media Buys etc. But hosting is what you really need because you need to find a place to install your tracking software in order to track your visitor's stat. If you have a little budget, I'd suggest you to try a free blog and using SEO to monetize it. Anyway, SEO takes time and lots of effort so I don't like it lol

    2. What if I don't know anything about web designing? I don't know how to create a website at all!

    If you use paid traffic, you can use Direct Link method and don't need to design anything. Just test and track. But if you want to monetize your blog using SEO, many free blog services have many themes available for you.


    3. What hosting site do you recommend?

    I recommed BeyondHosting, Liquidweb, and Hostgator.

    4. I have no sites as of this moment. Does it mean I can't register to any CPA networks?

    No, it doesn't! There are many affiliate networks out there welcome newbies! You just need to show them you really want to work with them. These networks are PeerFly, WolfStormMedia, AdWorksMedia, etc!

    5. How can you earn money on CPA?

    I use PPV to generate leads and make money from CPA.

    6. I've read a thread about mobile CPA. Do I have to buy another domain name for that? Or I can just use my old domain?

    I tried mobile for a while and found that the traffic volume is very high and tracking software can't handle that flood of traffic. I think most of mobile marketers use Direct Linking method and mobile tracking software called iMobiTrax? I'm not sure about that but I don't think you need to use a new domain name.

    Hope this help!
