Am I leaving money on the table by leaving my CPA to PPI networks?

    I'm currently earning ~$10 / day with a side project which involves youtube vidoes
    and a pay per install network. I'm getting somewhere around 60 install / day and
    it got me thinking. Is it worth the time / risk locking the content myself or is it better
    to leave it to the PPI company? I'm an experienced coder used to big projects in both web based and
    desktop based languages.

    The thing is, I have international traffic with users from all across the globe.
    As almost every other person in the PPI business I'm dealing with fake files,
    which means that my traffic isn't really worth shit to CPA companies as they
    all want stuff for free.

    I'm earning okay with this as a side project that I'm not investing any time into
    but I feel like I could squeeze more money from it.

    Do you think it's worth it locking the content myself instead of leaving it to the PPI-company?
    Do you know of a CPA-company that deals with international traffic? I'm getting very shitty pay for
    most countries with the PPI-network I'm currently using, sometimes as low as $0.02 for countries such as
    South Korea while conversions from the USA pays around a dollar per install.

    I tried posting a thread on this in the CPA sub-forum but it seems that part of this place is dead.

    Why not try CPA for 10 days..
    Then if you think it earns higher than your PPI earnings, maintain and scale it up.

    Actually, I'm very comfortable with this at the moment since I don't have to pay
    for hosting or a domain or anything like that at the moment. Investing in my own domain and
    a host for this would cost me, and I could potentially lose money.

    I'm used to gathering US leads, but International traffic is new to me, and I would really
    appreciate input from someone who is used to dealing with it.

    Why don't you try to earn some more money using links monetization? It sounds like you have quite heavy traffic websites which are working for you without any efforts. You can use link monetization to earn some more...

    PM me if you want some more info!

    Everyone has different results. YOU need to test, swap out your download links to a content locker or something. See which one converts best.

    10 days? What results do you expect in 10 days as someone who has no experience with CPA?

    Well I am an affiliate in MaxBounty network. They have some sick PPI offers. They are on average $2 pay per install. Some offers are up to $5 per install. If you have traffic for PPI, I would recommend joining MaxBounty, you could bank really hard with this network.
    If you would like to get some more info about joining the network, or to get more details about the offers(like an example & etc), just PM, or PM me your skype( I prefer to talk through skype).

    If you're getting 60 installs a day you will probably make a lot less money with CPA or maybe even nothing. I would stick with PPI, but try to switch your links for a few days.

    Well it all depends on the networks. I didn't work with PPI, or install offers from CPA, but in Maxbounty with 60 installs you could earn about $120. The only obstacle there mightbe is the type of install ofers on MB, they might less convert than PPI offers. He should try to join a good CPA network, not something like CPALead or CPAGrip.

    Hm, yeah maybe that would be something. I have around 4000 videos (all with just a few views each) so making for example adfly links to all of them
    would be quite a project haha.

    I've looked at the offers on MaxBounty but non of them are good for international traffic :(
