    Hey guys, I have been doing quite a bit of reading on both CPA and CB.
    CPA is smaller payouts, but higher conversions, while CB is higher payouts but less conversions.
    Which do you think is better for long term, consistent money making?

    I would like to begin making a job out of this, so I am more worried about keeping the money flowing than seeing spikes in profit followed by nothing. Unfortunately I do not have any real money to invest in this, so that would also have to be a factor on effectiveness.

    I know CPA takes quite a bit more work since you need a lot more traffic to get any real money out of it whereas CB is more about your selling technique.


    Any help on the matter would be greatly appreciated, and apologies for the most likely noobish questions.

    How can we get accepted to groups such as Ad Sense Media? They denied me whereas Adwork Media accepted.

    They're both great monetization methods.

    Clickbank is a shark's nest because most make money online courses uses it. You will be fighting tooth and nail both very experienced affiliates and newbies such as yourself. There's still plenty of money in it but it's something to consider. Becoming a vendor is the ultimate trophy, of course.

    CPA has been pretty stable for me. I only started CPA when I already had money to spend from doing CB. CPA seems to build much slower in terms of profit but doesn't feel like such a rat race.

    This is based off my own experience and nothing else so take that for what it's worth!

    Thank you Natmicon, I'm currently using CPA on my own website which then links it's posts to Twitter and facebook on an hourly basis. So I'm hoping leads will slowly begin to trickle in with a bit more time. I bought some real followers and a month of niche related traffic to my site.
    How long should one stick with a venture (with little or no profit) before he/she should consider it a failure?

    I'm doing ClickBank at the moment and soon will be starting a new CPA project, but let me tell you, getting conversions on your ClickBank products is hard (I'm an affiliate). It takes me around 120-130 hops to generate a sale. Whereas doing CPA might only have like 5-10 impressions a conversions. But when there's a sale made I would receive a commission of $20 (higher when I get upsales).

    CPA is more suited for beginners in my opinion, as there's a wide array of niches you can choose of. ClickBank is probably for the more experienced because you are actually selling products to people, and people aren't easily convinced to buy things online. ClickBank also has a limited amount of niches to choose from, so you can expect some pretty hard competition depending on the product you're promoting.

    What method do you guys use for CPA or CB that works well? Social networks, blogs, single keywords, multi-keyword sites?
