    I am an 18 year old full time college student with (surprisingly) a decent chunk of free time on my hands. I have been essentially looking in to IM for the past 4 years (yes, 4 years) without taking any major action whatsoever. I will admit, I am lazy and I tend to envy those who work hard and make decent salaries on the web. Im doing my best to overcome my laziness so that i can pay off student loans and help my family through a tight and emotional economic situation. My parents are both working very hard at low-wage jobs while managing the debts which have cursed them throughout their lives. I hate to see the emotions which run through their minds all the time. They attempt not to express stress in front of us (the children), but its obviously quite clear. Honestly speaking, I got involved in the very black/unethical side of online money making (not i didnt say internet marketing because it was far from it). However, without going in to detail, I realize that the right way to make money is by proper work and commitment while respecting morality and ethics. So i have left all that behind me..

    I have decided to begin applying to CPA networks so that I can possibly delve in to the world of content promotion. However, I need your help BHW. I have applied to multiple companies and i have been denied (regardless of following some steps on this very site). I believe my main issue is that I do not have a site. I do have some wordpress experience but it is very minor. If someone can provide examples of sites that they have used to be accepted in to cpa networks, I would greatly appreciate it. I would like to make one site that would get me accepted in to a majority of cpa networks.

    MY goals:
    - Get accepted in to at least 2 major networks (my top choices are peerfly, and adscend media).
    - Follow some money making methods on this site (specifically torrents and youtube, eventually seo for long term)
    - Start making a passive income of $50 daily within 4 weeks. I personally believe that this is a lofty goal based on some of the methods i have witnessed in occurrence on this site.

    BIG NOTE: I basically threw my whole life story at you guys. I had no intention of doing so when i began creating this thread, but it all came out. This is one of the most "giving" forums I have ever seen in my life, and i believe that you would all have some form of feedback/advice for my situation and my goals. Anything would be appreciated.

    Some men give up their designs when they have almost reached the goal; while others, on the contrary, obtain a victory by exerting, at the last moment, more vigorous efforts than before.

    EDIT: After seeing all the influential replies I have decided to keep a journal of my journey. I will keep everyone updated with my work and my earnings. Thanks a lot.

    Jay, your introduction totally caught my attention. i started reading this and thought to myself, thank god! finally, someone just like me, with the same issues! I am 19, in college, and have a good amount of free time after class and saw this as an opportunity to gain some knowledge on this stuff and possible make money, but i need some guidance. I have been doing a ton of research on this forum and i am still stuck! i just want to make my own site so i can apply to a CPA network, but i want to see some kind of example to help me get started. my friend worked as an affiliate for some CPA sites and made 20grand in 3 months, hes been helping me out a little, but he is so busy with his own studies/life, i dont want to keep nagging him about it, so he lead me to this forum to find people that can help me out. i was going to message you, but since im a newbie on here, i cant. i would love to stay in contact with you since we are in the same predicament. if you could just send me a message so we can team up and get over this initial bump.
    thanks,
    Adam

    the ONLY way to have a good online income is by working hard. there is no cutting corners. the cosmos will not allow you to succeed unless you work hard. SEO is great for long term residual income but it takes a long time to start ranking and earning money. you will probably see faster results from youtube marketing since there are many methods that you can implement on youtube. just be creative, work hard, and dont quit :)

    What do you mean black side of internet marketing? Explain lol. Were you into spam or something?

    Also, how would you market something on YouTube? Like make a video, "Free iPhone?"

    YouTube is a great source for traffic...

    Spamming was something i did at one point but there was much more to that (doing unnecessary and unethical things to get that extra penny). While i did obtain some good paychecks here and there, i could not keep doing something which was not only risky but mentally painful. And as for youtube i plan to follow the "journey back to $50/day" thread in the money making section. Instead of sharecash i plan to use some incentive cpa offers.

    Can you kindly point me in the direction to those threads that talked about getting traffic to cpa without using a website. Will be very happy, if you do that for us.

    So do you want somebody to suck your dick and lead the way? If you want to actually be successful,than you're going to have to work and get the experience in. Something you have to realize is, "I realize that the right way to make money is by proper work and commitment while respecting morality and ethics." CPA isn't right for you if that's how you feel. All of those $40+ payouts wont convert or are free trial rebills. I think you need to learn a little more about CPA before you depend on it for income unless it's just extra money. Also Adscend media is in a big lawsuit with Facebook at the moment, so more if they get sued they will be out and Peerfly shaves like no other. Look into EWA,********,007 CPA. Have fun learning. Sorry if I sounded a little rude, but what I said is the truth and it needed to be said. Also get in the Facebook chats, meet people,etc. A site is helpful but is in no way necessary.
