How's it going everyone.

Not sure if this is a waste of time. But I JUST WANT TO SAY HOW EXCITED I AM TO HAVE FOUND THIS FORUM. Brute ****in honesty and no bullshit about mindset and the real world work that needs to be done to get started in Online marketing.

As it's probably been posted here 35,000,000 times I'm newer then new with this shit. I know my direction is going to be CPA (because I don't have a product or service I can provide for myself) but that's the extent of my knowledge

I was getting caught up in all the guru shit and knew that throwing money at all of them would leave me in the same spot and pissed off.

This forum reminds me how I went from a 300 lb fat kid to being obsessed with fitness and bodybuilding. I learned through forums like this and put in the hard work in order to learn "most of it) on my own.

I am now turning 30 next month and I know. I can't WRK FOR THE MAN. The rest of my life. I need to start somewhere. And I know it may take a while. But if you never start NOTHING EVER HAPPENS.

I'm cirrently waiting for approval on maxbounty (which I was reccomemded to sign up for ) and I will be going from there. I have no programs or apps for landing pages and websites so I know I will need that as welll.

If anyone has any words of wisdom or info on what programs I should acquire to start building a CPA buisness please let me know.

Thanks again for being a part of this forum and SHOOTING PEOPLE STRAIGHT

    Charles,


    Welcome to the Warrior Forum.


    It sounds as though you are aware that not everything you read online is helpful or truthful. That is a good skill to have - understanding what is hype and what will actually help you to earn money online. You must apply that skill here at the WF because many folks here love to give advice but don't actually have profitable online businesses.


    I'm sorry about not being able to help you with CPA ... I don't personally use that business model so I won't pretend to know anything about it. You can use the search function to pull up threads in the archive that should be helpful to you.


    The very best in your new found interest in online marketing.

    Hi and welcome Charles, yes gurus you learn a lot and don't get very far.

    I have been online for over 10 years, and tried a lot of things, most unsuccessful, some a little, and one or two a reasonable amount.

    But none very.

    Although my present one, is showing a lot of potential, (trading).

    So learn what you can here, have a few laughs alone the way, take sig, bait posts with a grain of salt, and be wary of shiny objects.

    Hey Charles,

    Welcome to the forum.

    Yeah, working for the man sucks.

    I would like to point out something that I think will help if it's ok with you...

    "...how I went from a 300 lb fat kid to being obsessed with fitness and bodybuilding"

    You have a product right there!!

    CPA is a hard nut to crack unless you have deep pockets to test your funnel, ads, and landing pages.

    It would be much easier to create a product like that above...and get affiliates to promote for you.

    Yes, it might take a little time to learn how to write a good sales letter...but not nearly as hard as the CPA route...and the info is out there. Check out Gary Halberts Stuff for Free on the web.

    In addition, opting to pay for copywriter would for a product like that would be better(and most likely cheaper) than spending money on testing CPA...

    And at the end of the day, you have an asset. You have an opportunity to get an army of affiliates to send you traffic and build your buyers list.

    So what does that mean at the end of the day?

    You can send emails and get paid.

    I hope this helps.

    -Mark

      I thought about it but the industry is very very saturated. And I have accomplished nothing in the industry ALSo I don't personally have the "look" and from being around the scene for so long people will throw away money to the fitness industry if it's from somone that looks the part. Not about how much someone knows

      Sorry about that

        Networking is a valuable asset in business. Can you team-up with someone that does "look the part"?

  • As far as I'm concerned the Warrior forum is one of the best sites on the Internet. I've been a regular visitor since sometime in 1999.

    There is a lot of cream here that can help you build a business or extra money and there is also a big portion of crap that will hurt you, get you fined, make you lose money, get you banned from places like FB or Google, and maybe even send you to jail. Learning to discern between the two can be a challenge for beginners.

    You can know the difference by doing your due diligence, not falling for every smile and helpful post, and by keeping in mind that if it's too good to be true it probably is.

    Read and follow our rules. Help others - even most beginners have value of some sort they can add to the community.

    I don't have a clue about CPA so I can't help you there.

    Again, welcome to the forum.

    Mark

    PS Some people get offended, rightly or wrongly, with the s*** type language. You may consider holding back on that.

    Great to see you Charles.

    Focus on a few mentors and study their blogs. Treat IM as school.Read. Study. Take notes. Study. Learn. Then apply. Then you can invest money in courses of folks who have been helping you for free; this is being clear on spending money to make money, versus wasting money on strangers you do not resonate with.

    Happy marketing.

    Step One - Learn how to get targeted traffic that has value.

    Step Two - Learn how to convert and optimize that traffic.

    It's also helpful if you provide as much info about yourself as possible:
    What's your budget?
    What assets do you already have? Software? Domain and hosting? Autoresponder service...etc.?
    What skills do you have?
    Are you a "people person" or tend to be more of a loner?

      I wouldn't say that budget is unlimited however if it gets me success and making money faster (while learning everything I need to to be self sufficient) i can throw money at this.

      As far as assets. NONE. Waiting tonhave an interview with maxbounty.

      as far as skills. NONE

      I do have the gift of gab tho and when I believe in something I find myself persuading and selling people on these ideas. (Usually while I'm drinking and usually using their "acceptance " as verification that what I'm thinking of is a good idea . No money ever comes of those efforts tho

      I have the drive and determination t become successful , My problem is procrastination and not being able to be confident enough to go all in on an idea.

    Do some ground work while you are waiting for MaxBounty approval.
    1) Create a landing page.
    2) Join a email marketing company (Get response, aweber etc.)
    3) Start a blog.
    4) Improve your social media presence.
    And then, when the approval comes, you are ready for the onslaught.. Go Bang!!!!!
