I am a complete newbie to cpa's.

Here is what I did. In 48 hours!

1. Got sick of clickbank!
2. Looked into CPA's
3. Read hundreds of posts on this forum.
4. Applied to maxbounty
5. Got accepted.
6. Picked a product
7. Did keyword research - picked 2 keywords
8. Wrote an ad and direct linked (for testing)
9. Before my ad even said approved in adwords i showed 8 clicks and one sale ($30+)


I know this is not typical but it gives me hope!

Thanks Warriors

    Congrats on your first sale. I have been reading up myself over the past few days while applying for CPA networks. I have alreadys been accepted into Max Bounty, Azoogle Ads, XY7, and Copeac. Getting my LLC set up at the moment along with my site and doing research. I hope to start promoting late this week / weekend or early next week. Don't want to go off half cocked.

    Max Bounty from what I can tell has some really good offers going on and look forward to doing marketing for them. Your early success gives me hope as I'm sure it does others as well.

    Thanks for sharing.

      Travis Clark,

      How long did it take for you to get approval with Azoogle? I had applied with Max Bounty and was denied. I sent an email to the AM with more information and additional websites and asked him to reconsider. I was accepted. I am with some of the same ones you've been accepted to, but I haven't heard from Azoogle. I was just curious how long does their application process take. I've even called them and they refer me back to their website to check on the application process online.

        Azoogle never approved my application until I called and spoke directly to an AM. I left at least two separate voice mails on their affiliate line and never received a call back.

        Call them and tell the receptionist that you want to speak directly to an AM and you'll likely be approved.

          I was finally approved last week! I waited for about 3 weeks. I called once and spoke to a woman who told me that I had to wait on an AM to call. Well, the AM called me, but I wasn't at home. I returned her call and she stated I had already been approved! I told her well that's funny because I have not been able to sign in. So, now I'm up and going. Thanks for the post!

        I had problems with Azoogle. Got accepted into CPA Empire, CJ, Hydra and Google. So I met everyone else's criteria. But they flat out declined me and it took a while for them to decline.

    Way to go! That is pretty amazing in such a short time.
    I have to get a more official privacy policy together on my site for my applications.

    Thanks for the encouragement.

      Pretty Good! I woke to 2 more sales! Net profit in less than 24hrs is around $70.

      My CTR is over 7%, so i think my ad is working.

      My next step is making a landing page to pre-sell and collect emails!

      I got my domain name. Now just working on the copy. This is fun!

    Congrats! I'm new too. Got my first two sales at Clickbank. Couldn't make one more to claim the money. After five months still no success.

    I purchased the New CPA Method from Stephon "Phon" Rudd. Couldn't subscribe to Guaranteedsignups.org cause I live outside the US. I tried with Guaranteedsignups.us but couldn't find anywhere on their page to sign up. Can anyone please help?

      Great! Did Maxbounty call you with questions before approving you? Neverblue called me and I wasn't available and they are like we're really busy and you have to be at the phone when we call. So they didn't accept me. So, I hope Maxbounty doesn't go through a "be at the phone" protocol.

    It's been a couple weeks, but congrats anyway! I just made my first "sale" (it was a free ringtone PIN submit) today and made $15! Not a lot, but it's really boosted my morale. Hope things are still going well for you.

      Remember that consistency in earning is most important, because if it occur after one month that it was one sale during this month it is not a success, anyway keep doing...,
      to your success.

    There's nothing wrong with CB. Actually you should promote both CB and CPA. This way CB gives you weekly payment while CPA gives you net15 or net30 payout. This way you have a healthy cashflow all year round.

    i can get lots of top 10 organic results with link popularity actions.
    not so adept at other tactics so i am wondering what is working for people on cpa campaigns.

    Same question here: did you just put your aff. link in the ad? I did the same thing to tryout CPA and the very next day received an e-mail from big G not to do that. Or what else did you do?

    Nice going though!
