    I'm trying to help out a few buddies of mine get into CPA, and I was wondering (since I knew my shit) if CPA networks are forgiving with noobs? Any experience, you know, honest guys who say they're just starting out...

    Let me know your experiences. Since I'd then decide if we do the honest approach or the bull (i'm extremely experienced) approach.


    All the best,

    I think they have to be noob friendly to an extent. I mean everyone has to start somewhere. However, even a noob can act like a seasoned pro. Thats what I did when I first started joining CPA networks. If they explain to the network their situation as a beginner but explain that they have a seasoned veteran coaching them, they may be allowed in anyways. I'm not sure, but I took the "act like a pro" approach when I got started.

    Based on my own experiences, I'd go the "I'm extremely experienced" route! I haven't found a network yet that's excited about bringing a noob on board. But, I'd also be interested to hear if others had a different story?

    Its not that hard to sound like you're the shit. When I started I didn't know anything. I just made sure I had an answer to all their questions and that was it!! I told them I hada few years of experience and bla bla

    Also I almost only speak to my AM with IM so if they ask something I dont know I just dont reply

    Just like with women, you're best bet is to act like you have done it before. In business, if I have someone working for me, considering that I have to pay him, I want some experienced already that can make me money twofold from what I'm paying him. If he's a noob, it will be harder to teach him, or for him to develop his skills until he is at an acceptable level for making money for him, and for me.

    Haha. Yeah. I knew my stuff when I got in. I just wanted to know, your experiences. Since I think it would be a better learning experience for people to do the 'honest' route.

    Lol.

    They kind of are noob-friendly.. but gear mostly towards the big money makers who will really make them some dough!

    Just say that you do PPC, $100-200 daily budget, been into marketing for 1.5/2 years etc and you'll be fine
