    Hello,


    First of all, my point in opening this thread is to provide some motivation. Several threads here helped and kept me motivated while I was under depression. Though I don't participate much in the discussions, I keep on reading and BHW is always a good source of inspiration to me.

    There is no new information or a method in particular in this thread. I am sorry if you get disappointed.

    Last year I reached $10K pm milestone (posted on BHW and link to my old thread - http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/making-money/591634-just-hit-10-000-pm-thank-you-bhw.html) and now after a lot of hardships and ups & downs I finally reached $1K per day.


    This time, I did this with CPA. I saw a service thread last year on BHW which was launched by a Jr Exec VIP. Unfortunately that did not turn out well and got a refund after a long time. But I did my research and created some campaigns on my own, lost thousands of dollars. Did a lot of mistakes but finally I have created a few campaigns that gave me some decent ROI.


    I tested, tested and tested.
    I learned optimization for CPA landers (search G for tons of optimization tips).
    I was able to get some good traffic deals but that required bulk purchases. I took investments from some investors and purchased traffic for my tested campaigns that are giving good ROI.
    There were several 1K-3K days actually but paid most of the money to investors as promised. Then Paypal screwed me big time with limitations, etc. Also got in to personal problems, long story short - Got in to debts. It took me 2-3 months to recover, recently we had a second child.


    My newborn son - http://screencast.com/t/5NvKFsUzh

    How did I recover?

    One of my JV partners helped me out and also, I opened a BST thread here which resulted in several sales(around 100). I was able to fund my campaigns with money from both the sources. Now I closed the BST to complete current orders and also spend time on CPA campaigns.

    I am working 15hrs a day to come out of my issues and get back in to business while also taking care of my family.


    Since 10 days, I am consistently making 1K per day from CPA campaigns
    I have also used some spy tools like boxofads. If you are just getting in to CPA and want to try spy tools, I would highly suggest not to copy campaigns which you find using spy tools. That simply do not work. Use spy tools only to get some idea of what others are doing and what elements they are using. Test the elements within your campaigns and use them accordingly.


    Coming to the traffic, I have used lead impact when I started and then adwords. Adwords banned me for promoting weight loss offers.


    Now, I found some other traffic sources that are giving me good ROI.


    My suggestions to the newbies who want to try CPA and paid traffic


    - Pick ever green niches, no matter how competitive they are.
    - Work on 1 traffic source at a time until you master it.
    - Understand what your customers/people need and design your LPs trying to show a solution to their problems.
    - Try to capture leads and then drive traffic to cpa offers and I highly suggest not to drive direct traffic to the offer pages. First capture leads and then direct your leads to offer page. Other wise you are leaving a lot of money on the table.
    - Restrict IPs of all popular spy tools

    Tools I use-

    OP2 for capturing leads( video LPs works great)
    Getresponse
    vimeo for video hosting.
    CPVLab for tracking
    Shutterstock for images

    Let me know if you have any question by posting here and I will try to answer as many of them as possible.

    I will try to keep an eye on this thread at least 2-3 times a days.

    Best of luck

    Awesome results! CPVLabs is good for tracking, but... I suppose the important thing is that you ARE tracking. :)
    I've not yet tried boxofads, but I've heard many great things about it! I use something similar, but slightly different, and it works for me.
    Dude, you're doing an amazing job, and I know you will keep it going!

    Thank you very much and yes BOA is good and I am hearing even more good things about Adbeat. Have you used it?

    If we don't track, we loose money... simple, like you said its damn important.

    Thank you and are you from AP or Telangana?

    Good to see a fellow telugu member here

    I am not in to mobile cpa campaigns yet, I work with peerfly, AAO, more niche etc

    both ppc and ppv.

    thank you very much

    I usually work for PPS and hardly PPL.

    Find an offer, Create an LP, test, optimize, drive traffic, capture leads and promote PPS and some times PPL offers. Nothing new, same old stuff but finding out right offers and building profitable campaigns is what it is...

    Thanks for all the information you have provided. Can you share any of website you are promoting? or you have worked in past which was successful. What all you said above is awesome, but still i feel i am far away to start anything with it. Would love to see a website and do some reverse Engineering.

    I'm actually using the Adbeat 14 day trial, now, and while I really like what I'm seeing, I keep hearing so many great things about a popular competitor of theirs, and I'll try their 7 day trial, when I conclude the trial of Adbeat. I'm definitely going to keep one of them, but at this time, I'm not sure which.

    BoA, mind you, is slightly different than the two of these. They'd be used for similar purposes, but for different platforms. So you'd essentially keep BoA, but add one of these as sort of another means, if you so choose to do so.

    How do you block IPs of spy tools? I mean they can't be that stupid to use same server for website and spying?

    OP literally gave you a business model. I know folks who do ppc who are making a living out of it.

    @op, are you also doing fb ads too?

    Congrats on your newborn child and it's nice that you recovered from that low point in your life.

    I wish you continued success with CPA marketing while you keep keeping other members when you can.

    I am also into CPA right now.
    And seriously, its a real headache.
    Tracking and testing and testing and testing and lander etc.
    But yes, once you master the traffic source it can bring real profit :)
    Good Luck and God bless you, your son and your family :)
