    I've probably sumbitted 2 applications to about 5-6 different cpa websites, and all but one has denied me on several occassions.

    cpaway was the only one to accept, but it wont let me login :/



    is there any tips to "fluff" up my applications to have them accept me?

    When I 1st applied to CPA networks couple of years ago, I got approved by 4 of them without having a website. Now i guess that you should get the rep on the phone feel your way through the conversation, tell them you have just signed up and ask them what to do next. be honest about how your are going to promote , if you know what you are doing and you have a game plan then you shouldn't be denied. You can also find them on linkedin.

    I wouldn't "fluff" anything. Be honest and straightforward and give them a call.

    Talk up your experience in other areas (If you have any); e.g. I have been a very successful IM marketer for the last few years promoting clickbank / CJ whatever and I would like to move into CPA offers blah blah blah

    Be honest and work with your affiliate manager, they really do want you to succeed. Having said that, cover your tracks if you are doing BH as whilst some affiliate managers *will* turn a blind eye, they do have to report to someone else further up the chain.

    Cheers

    Looking down at the top of your mom's head
    there is a whole section here on this topic, called CPA. Inside there are about three sticky threads outlining exactly what you need to do to get accepted, written by people who know whats up.

    But since here we are anyway, I can tell you the biggest thing people fuck up is fluffing up the application. Here is how I got accepted into every fucking one I applied for the first time I tried when I did not know shit:

    1- create a blog about internet marketing and make 5 posts. in the 5 posts talk about different ppc platforms and what you like / don't like about them, here are some to talk about...7search, bidvertiser, looksmart, miva (make sure you say miva sucks in your blog or they will know you are not in the game) adknowledge (mention how expensive they are) and post how you are just starting to get into ppv.

    2- in one of the pages post your real picture and say something like "My name is xxxxxx and I love advertising online it is my passion and I am getting better every day, I have been marketing online for just over a year and have come so far, welcome to my blog, if you see something you like please post a comment!"

    3- on your application check NO on the question about if you use incentives. Also put this exactly into your application where it asks what you do for traffic

    "I like to use PPC to drive targeted traffic to relevant offers and match the demographics of the audience to the offers so I can maximize my conversions. I am in the process of building my email list so I can have a long term asset of more targeted traffic. I am relatively new to the CPA space only one year in, but I am determined to become successful with your network"

    Use that or something close and don't bullshit on your app. These people are going to know you are full of shit. If you are a noob, say it, but make sure you know the game and the terminology.

    3- submit your application during THEIR BUSINESS HOURS NOT 3AM and as soon as you submit CALL THEM IMMEDIATELY and tell them "I just submitted my app and I wanted to call and introduce myself and see what I can do to help the process along" if you don't do that step don't come crying to me because that will get you accepted 99% of the time and if you are too scared to do that than you need to find another line of work.

    Best of luck, remember, CPA section, top 3 stickies, you will succeed.

    Above all, keep trying, there are MANY networks who are lenient about who they accept. Do a little research on here and you should have 5-10 accounts up in the next two weeks.

    Make sure you use a professional email address when you sign up. CPA agents look for that as well. Using free email services will decrease your chances of acceptance.

    i normally say i do PPC traffic, get about 10 sales a day for
    an average offer. build landers, email opt ins. about 500 uniques a day.

    talk like you know the business to give confidence that the aff manager
    don't need to spoon feed you all day.

    they are looking for folks that can contribute to the network.

    most importantly, when they call, don't talk like a hot shot, what 10,000 uniques a day, 100s of sales.

    Get on the phone, be realistic, act like you know what you're talking about a little.

    Acting like a hotshot actually worked for me originally.
