    Hi,

    I started IM back in 2004 when every thing was super easy but as didn't speak English I had to learn it first. It took me around 2 years to teach myself English, SEO, affiliate marketing, adsense.... I wasn't making more than 100$ per month but it was enough to keep me dreaming and motivated.

    I had some hard times so I gave up IM for a while, then I came back with an idea that is allowing me to live from my IM efforts with adsense. I make more than 3K/m + affiliates comm and it's growing by +10% each month.

    3 months ago I shifted my attention to the offline side of internet marketing. Beside some small clients I closed a 10k deal and have a similar deal on the way.
    I use magic submitter to rank my clients websites and plan to buy Scrapebox or xrumer, but that is another story.

    In short, i'm doing well :)

    As I have some free time i'm wondering if CPA is still worth it. I'm planning to use solely free traffic from the SE and target Canadian offers and clients (=moderate to weak competition). I will Create a website and advertise it (on and off page optimization, heavy linking campaigns using magic submitter, scrapebox or xrumer, linkwheel and other blackhat methods...).

    Do you think that this have any chance to work ?

    Is someone using the same techniques or something similar and seeing results ($$$$) ?

    Thank you for your help.

    could you please elaborate more.
    Are you making "good" money from cpa ? Maybe could you share with us the results from a previous campaign without disclosing your techniques and niche ?

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Yeah don't go for it its dead. Networks don't pay anymore they cheat on your leads. They shave on your earnings they force you to send traffic to them and at last they ban you without any payment. ;)

    I could say exactly the same thing about Google Adsense, but that doesn't mean it doesn't work ;).

    Of course it is.

    Just find an innovative way to bank. Create your own method.

    of course CPA will always work it just evolves back in 08 used to make 20k+ a month now scraping by at 7-8k a month, because the game changes and if you can't keep up or in my case don't put the effort to keep up your income goes way down... it's like asking if sex sells, yup in 20,000 years it probably still will- just with hot robots and possibly aliens

    It's well-worth it to me because I just started this past month (January 21st or so) and made $150 between then and February 1st. And in the past 5 days, I've averaged enough per day to land $500 this month, which is way more than I've ever made online, and I have many plans underway to expand and earn more. The only money I've made besides CPA is with contextual and cloud advertising, and it was only $50 after several months...

    No, CPA is not dead, just choose good network with reputation. You can still earn a lot of money with free targeted traffic from search engines.

    CPA is going to be worth it... And since you are going to be mostly targeting your area, that will be quite profitable, as most try US only...

    ^^^ lol classic


    @ OP - Just like any long term business model, it takes a shitload of time, trial and error and blood sweat and tears to build out successful long term campaigns. No answer you're going to get in this thread is going to teach you how to do that. It all comes down to digging into your campaigns and working your ass off to optimize into profitability, then bankrolling your earnings into many different promotional methods on each campaign.

    Do that and you'll be hitting $1K+ days...everyday.

    and to answer your question...yes it has a chance to work.

    Very very very very alive. Choose your partners carefully and build strong relationships with them.
