How much money do I need to learn how to send paid traffic to CPA offers?

11 replies
I know that the standard answer is "it depends," but lets talk about what a good amount I can save to give myself a good chance at beating the learning curve before I go broke. I am currently working on learning copywriting. I'm actually very fortunate in that I'm getting paid to learn. I'm going to set up a sales funnel for my dad's financial services firm. At the end of the project I should have about 10K to spend.

How reasonable is it for me to expect to be able to learn how to send paid traffic to a CPA offer with that kind of bankroll? What do you guys think my chances at success are if I learn copywriting really well?

    As KJ said $2,500 is safe to get started to break yourself into parts.

    But of course, I suggest you to study more before getting into CPA marketing, if you're on the line of promoting Cost Per Lead, copywriting probably not what could be used, instead if you promoting Cost Per Sales, copywriting skill is a MUST on the landing page.

    Really, read on this forum before you getting into paid traffic source.
    Pay attention to post from Greedy, KJ, PPC-Coach, Kenster, ChrisBa, they are more likely to pinpoint the question.

    Here, couple of thread to start out.

    $10K is more than enough to get you started and building yourself an online biz through paid traffic... provided that you re-invest majority of profits back into your business.

    In fact, I'd have you put about $5K of that away to save it for those winning campaigns... and use the remaining $5K to master a paid traffic source. I'd have you start on Facebook running compliant offers using simple landing pages.

    First, you'd have to master your mindset... and understand that you might run through a portion of your budget with little to no results, but understanding that it's DATA that you're buying <--- hopefully you already know this.

    And that the DATA you're buying will help you optimize future campaigns.

    Always start slow at first, and work your way up.

    I always set aside a minimum of £300-400 for any new campaign to test the waters. This is usually enough to see if its viable, and if after a few tweaks I can make it profitable once the negative ROI keywords have been cut ... so I can concentrate on the positive ROI keywords. Short-term you will usually always lose a bit of money as you test keywords (or at least break even) ... but then after you tweak your campaign it's all profit.

    Any questions just let me know

    10k is plenty to start with and I know this isn't the answer you want but it really does depend on a lot of factors, you might hit it big on your first campaign or you might blow through your first 3k without making a penny back, you won't know until you actually start.

    Sure having a background in copywriting helps but it doesn't guarantee success, there's much more involved when creating a profitable campaign. As long as you learn something from your failed campaigns and apply it then you'll be set. Expect to have lots of failed campaigns, it's part of the game.

    you know, the big cost in sent paid traffic to cpa offers is from testing, testing, testing and testing before you get winning/profitable campaign. so to be smart in campaign testing is important on this *GAMES*

    Hi NateJasper,

    I had some success with Teespring on Facebook Ads with a $500 budget.

    I know you want a direct answer and amount on how much you need but nobody will ever know that. It depends on so many factors because paid traffic can be unpredictable.

    Something that works for one person sometimes (or most of the time) wont work for another.

    Look at some threads on this forum, learn a method & start testing it.

    I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can't accept not trying.

    If you get lucky with your 1st try $1000 is enough. Sometimes when you're doing paid traffic, Luck is also included in your equations.

    I always recommend to start once you have saved up over $800 - $1,000, so $10,000 should be plenty.

    The odds of your success all come down to effort, dedication, and a little luck.

    $10k should be more than enough. For most people I recommend at least $1-2k
