    I was thinking, couldn't I just program an entire interface, applications, products, the whole deal. Bet I could make it look better than most of them out there. Then what else? Just approach advertisers on other network, try and get good commission rates and win over some marketers, surely getting the products on their first will make enough profit to pay for initial marketer checks. Anything else...? Support people? Surely running it by yourself with fake e-mails then getting a team as soon as it takes off?

    I've thought long and hard about creating my own CPA network multiple times. I just don't know where to start when it comes to getting advertisers on board. I'll check out that HasOffers URL. Thanks.

    If you don't have money to blow (i'm not talking about 5-10G's in the bank) or any connections, It is going to be very difficult to start your own network. Even If you did start the network, you would need to have some kind of relationships built with advertisers because they are not going to randomly allow a new network to promote their products without some kind of establishment. Here is a post from another thread:

    Generic networks are getting saturated yeah. I'd recommend you target a specific niche and get the advertisers in that niche, or perhaps target a local market?

    to be perfectly honest ive tried quite a few things and i've learned the following: building something is the easiest part of the job. Making it to work for you is give or take impossible. Assuming you will get a lot of traffic you could straight on jump to a vps or dedicated server solution. And even if you do know how to code and manage a server that is the last thing that should be on your mind. What you really need to have is a clear idea and the right approach. Best of luck from me!

    Not quite saturated but there is just too many of them. It's going to be a bit hard to get advertisers.

    Let's try to be optimistic. Target an area you have knowledge in, put in the required efforts, show that you can and you will succeed.
