More than 2 months ago I bought from someone a EBook about CPA Marketing which I read and paid attention, performed step by step, made follow up to keywords, campaigns and stuff and by now Im not seeing profit but losts.
Of course I know that I am new and that It takes times to learn the basics that a book cant teach but well, 2 months 230Usd used in LI without significant coversions arent a good start, I am thinking about ask for a refund in LI (First deposit is 1000) and follow any good tip that you may hand me.
I dont have a website..Yet, But currently working on creating one.

Thanks in advance!

    Well to start with, Are you building your website using Wordpress?
    Most marketers use Wordpress of it's diversity..!!

    But how about your mindset?
    The better you understand the mindset of your future customers,
    the better you can serve them, and make money in the process as well.

    And there are several Internet marketing courses where you don't need
    money to start with Plus learning IM in the process as well.....

    Try this if other courses failed,
    Like, "How to sell affiliate products"

      Hello Fonzan and thank you so much for you kind answer.
      Well, I am at this moment checking WP templates to see which one fills my interest, hope to finish it and get it ready in a couple of days.
      Do you think that taking that money I put into Paid Traffic into another kind of IM source? Or it is a good start?
      I will be looking for the IM courses you talk about.

      thank you again.

    No systems or method is wrong here...and almost all of them are explaining the same proven formula...So, no reason to be disheartened about any failure at first... At first, You should focus on your failures and learnings by implementing any method....

    Please understand that almost all successful marketer here have lost money in their first instance... The most important thing here is...to be focused on this one method only and make it successful....Learn and implement....Never quit or jump over another method....

    Find...the answer...why it failed...and move ahead...

    Best of Luck!

      Hey J.D.,
      You need to definitely get that Site up and going. It is pretty much like the Foundation of a house.

      You cant live in a house without a properly built Foundation. For the most part , at least

    You didn't fail... you gathered data...

    You now know what specific angle doesn't work...

    And you better get comfortable with losing money here and there because the failures will provide you with the lessons you need to learn to succeed...

    So ask yourself... what are the lessons?

    Otherwise you'll just quit and tell everbody "I tried it, it didn't work"... you need to have guts in this biz..

    Hello Guys, Its me Once again asking for some support.
    At this time Ive almost finished creating my webpage. A warrior told me that Its the most imprtant tool i need for this bussiness because promoting links is not that efficient. Now my question is Should I put my webpage URL to LeadImpact and add different keyword that lead to my webpage? If so, How can I check in T202 which keyword sent traffic to my webpage and which one converted?

    thanks in advance!

    You should be happy you failed. Because you now know what method doesn't work for you. Try testing different methods with CPA and you will make money guaranteed. Try different ad providers i.e. Facebook ads, 7 search, Media Buying etc.

    Jesus. Those prices are nuts.

    The first warning sign I'm seeing here is you don't have a website. And this isn't you're fault. It appears to be the product's. I honestly wouldn't know where to start by offering advice. It's a big subject. If you ask some pointed questions, I'll lend a hand.

      Stop buying, start learning.

      As has already been said there is a host of free advice here.

      I have some rules about buying WSO's

      1/ I only buy from sellers that have a proven track record which can be verified by a little research here on WF.

      2/ I only buy WSO's that specifically add to knowledge I need for a current project

      3/ If the WSO does not conform to its sales page I ask for a refund.

    I think you are moving too fast, Making money Online is not as easy as most make it out to be.
    I do not think you should rush into paid traffic until you understand the game fully.
    I think you should first set up a wordpress blog in the niche you are in, buy some quality
    articles and put them on your blog and then you can put banners on your there.
    It is also best to send your traffic to a lead capture page where the person have to capture there contact details before sending them to the CPA Offer page. You can build your list this way and market over and over to that list.details, and you will these contact details.
    Most importantly do not give up easily, most successful Internet Marketers got burnt first before
    they they saw success.

    If you fail at something, you have two choices:

    1. Quit
    2. Learn from the experience and go forward.

    No matter what you are selling, you need to match the offer to the prospect. If your offer isn't selling, either the offer is presented badly, or you are talking to the wrong audience.

    Doing CPA without a website? ummm.

    Well, I'd say congratulations because you already jumped through the first hoop and got a bit closer to success. Failures will be there and you have to be prepared at all times...especially with the "magic bullet" courses. The point is did you learn your lesson?

    My advice: Stop suffering from the Shiny Object Syndrome and get real.
    Best of luck.

    Should I send Paid Traffic with LeadImpact to my webpage initial page only?
    No. You should not send any traffic until you learn how to convert it.

    Learn email marketing and how to follow up with prospects, first.

    The first thing that i've learned is if you wanna compete in affiliate marketing you can't think of it like a TRY. You have to dedicate all your TIME, MONEY, and ENERGY to this.

    The important thing in paid traffic. Finding keyword research, find traffic source fit offer and use tracking for analyze and optimize. I found many affiliate marketers lost huge budget (more than $1000) before get profit. But the good of paid traffic is if you find traffic source with profit. I call this passive income.

    Keep motivation and your hard work.

    I'm not sure what you've done with Lead Impact so far.

    How many campaigns have you run, and how much did you spend and test on each campaign? I find that sometimes people pull out of a campaign too soon before they can properly determine if it will yield a good ROI.

    Also, landing or interstitial pages tend to convert better than many of the CPA offer pages, which can seem too "salesy" and aggressive. Are you going to start testing this traffic with landing pages soon? If not, I'd highly suggest doing so.

    There isn't a secret...

    People always search for secrets and they are buying shyness objects every day. STOP buying them and start working.

    Well when it come to make money online, people usually complicate to much.
    I was in the same position, but I learn one simple model.

    First learn
    Then do
    And teach other to do

    Make it simple and don't complicate too much...

    You can master process or outsource anything (copywriting, webinars, technical stuff) you hate doing along the way.

    I have a friend who is using Lead Impact successfully and he doesn't have a blog. He is sending direct traffic from lead impact to a very 'highly converting' sales page. Not something you would find in clickbank though because it's not offered there.

    My friend is one of my coaches & his best year in IM so far has been $500,000 USD.

    I have a blog and was considering using lead impact very soon. But I am not planning on sending this traffic to my blog. I will send directly to a very powerful sales page.

    I know it works because our team has already tested lead impact with it.

    Disclaimer: Our team is comprised of some very advanced marketers. So use caution when ever you spend money and on how much you spend.

    It doesn't matter where you send traffic to but what does matter is knowing how IM works and getting some experience under your belt.

    You did not fail. You just have to learn and keep learning by taking more action.

    The only way to learn is by 'doing' just like you already have but take it down a notch or three.

    You need to slow down and get a better 'understanding' of how 'conversions' are made in IM. Don't stop but take it easy. Then keep learning from your mistakes.

    That's how you get the skill sets of a marketer.

    But the key is to NOT go broke in the process.
