    (I'm a beginner so I will write this "review" from a beginners view...)

    Hey guys,

    so I just took action:

    -spent the last month with reading forum threads, browsing the internet and learning from experts.

    -made the decision to go deep in cpa
    (I don't want to stand in the spotlight and advertise products IN PERSON)

    -gave me the push and signed up for maxbounty
    (I was pretty nervous to do the telephone interview, because English isn't my first language, BUT the interview was quick and easy to menage and he gave me access to maxbounty)

    -and hallelujah there are a LOT offers you can promote!

    -searched for a "clickthunnel-like" all -in-one builder. I'm a student and don't have $100/month to spend on "just getting into the topic and test around". I found a cheap one (based in Germany) called GooLux24 for $61/55€ for 3 months.......and its bad..... like REALLY bad.... building a landing page with this builder is extremely pathetic. Its like a WordPress document you can edit but have to click a preview button to see what you have changed on your final landing page. No real time editing possible) :/
    Anyway... it works

    -I choose 3 promotions so far and my skills in Photoshop really helped me to create not good but decent ad banner for social sites like Facebook and Instagram (my main traffic)

    -so far I'm running 3 promotions. One at google search (very expensive) and two at Instagram.
    non of them made me a conversion and at the end I will have spend $111/100€. But I guess this is how you learn and I should see this as an investment in my learning-curve.

    For all my fellow newbies: My view should not be the reason to not start with ANY affiliate marketing method BUT you should have some money to spend because nowadays nothing is really free and spending it on the right things ;) will help you ALLOT.

    So I will update this when something crazy happens but for now thank you for reading and if you have any advice for my please let me hear!!
    For example I would like to know how much you think I have to test (testing multiple campaigns which will be profitable)....

    Learning never stops!
    That being said,
    have a nice day
    Niklas G.

    This should probably be in the journey section.

    Are you using tracking software to gather data?

    If not stop your ads until you get this figured out.

    I don't know paid ads but I do know many people feel you have to collect a lot of data to be successful and without the right data collection you will never be

    Also card.co is showing me a 7 day free trial and then 9 bucks a year

    Seems like I should have spend more time on googleing :D ($100 is not my absolute limit but was supposed to be mentioned I think


    Can I change the section?
    Yeah I know I need to get a decent tracker but for now I use the intern tracking options from the sites I use.

    I wouldn't recommend paid advertising at all if you're a beginner. You have no idea what sells, you have no idea how to write good copy, no idea how people think and you're just gonna end up blowing your money. Try social media, Quora and other free alternatives until you learn the ropes. Trust me, this is the only advice you need, for now.

    How did you get accepted in Maxbounty?
    Did you used your own business website and business [email protected]?
    Was the call via Skype?
    What questions and answers?
    And the last one, how Google ads accepted your landing page, I know there are many problems with CPA??

    I'm afraid they are alot of questions, sorry and thanks in advance

    Nah man its all good I had the same questions at the beginning :)

    I made an extra email - to have it separated from my privat stuff
    Call was with mobile phone, now i use skype for quick chats when I have questions for my affiliate manager
    Question was How I would promote my stuff - I said paid advertisment But dont just copy my answers because honestly pays out (they will help you a lot because they get money if you do too)
    Landingpage = no problems with google, google, facebook etc dont want you to directly link the webside you promote (this looks scamy)
