    Hey,

    I'm a CPA newbie, I've been trying these two things for the last 3 months:

    1) YouTube videos. It was a lot of work, promoted different products, had almost 100 videos up, still only made around 40$ in three months. Looks like it's not worth it.

    2) POF. Even worse. I had a lot of pictures, laser targeting, three different landing pages, tested a lot. Still lost 4 times as much as I made.


    POF I already gave up. YouTube well, sometimes I'm creating a few new videos.

    But since a friend of mine makes a living only on promoting adult offers I've been thinking of doing that too.
    Promoting offers for the American, British and German market on Trafficjunky and JuicyAds.
    I heard though from some people that the adult niche is even more difficult than POF etc. And that you have to have a big budget to even get started.

    Is that true? Wouldn't you recommend adult traffic/offers for newbies? I'd love to hear your opinion and advices.

    Thanks!

    nothing gonna be easy man, if you quitting everything at every turn just cause it got rough or the results arent what you expected what makes the adult niche any different.

    Theirs people making a living off youtube, there people making a living off pof, but you quit those two.

    and yes there people making a living off adult traffic. What happens when it gets tough and the results arent what you expected? you gonna quit.


    Hard Work. Dedication.

    Everything that I have read about making money on the Internet suggests that making money in the "adult" section is harder than making money in any other section. The rationale for this seemingly counterintuitive observation is that everyone thinks it is easier to make money in the "adult" market, and therefore it is completely saturated.


    Obviously there are going to be exceptions to that rule. However, I would imagine that as a beginner it would be more difficult for you to identify those exceptions therefore you are better off persisting in the non-adult side of things were you have already conducted some experiments in marketing, and therefore should have some information to enable you to fine-tune your marketing and improve on your previous experience.

    Why haven't you asked your "friend" that makes a living with adult offers? Then come back and tell us what he said.

    Unfortunately he doesn't want to share any tips or secrets, yea I know, a great friend hahaha.
    I didn't quit YouTube- I'm still uploading videos but nothing seems to work well. I quit POF because after promoting an offer for a month and
    losing 4x as much as making I thought it's not worth it.
