    Hi

    I just recently applied to some CPA networks, and while ive been waiting for approval, ive been fascinated by the research ive done on this.

    The problem i initially face tho, is having absolutely nothing to invest capital wise, only an extravagent amount of free time haha

    I have a few ideas for what kind of offers i need to pursue and the general free ways to find traffic, but i would be much more confident if I had some guidance from experienced peers.

    I would appreciate any advice offered, but please dont just post to say starting with nothing is stupid, I know that.

    If enough time is invested, im sure I can generate enough revenue to justify the hours.

    Thanks

    No one would say starting with time is stupid; time is your greatest resource. You should look in the CPA category though, and not the affiliate programs.
    Make YouTube videos, learn a valuable skill. DO something, don't just sit and wonder what to do.

    I have basic computer skills, particularly audio and video production, but from what I understand, my main objective would be to drive traffic, are there certain methods that one would use if paying for adspace wasnt an option? Ive read craigslist is one tool alot of people use. I appreciate your response :)

    If you've got free time and no money, I would recommend Fiverr.
    I know it may not be what you're interested in atm, but you can make fairly good money for (or at least to help start) your CPA activities
    Oh and I started with nothing last summer, using Fiverr. Within a month or so I had made about a grand - don't ever feel restricted by having little to start with.
    Hope this helped!

    Starting with nothing is the only way to go in my opinion....it forces you to learn every aspect of your business.

    The more you know about what you do, the more successful you will be

    Try to make a YouTube video that goes viral. Do some crazy stunt, and share it with the internet.
