    If you optimise your ads, and collect email leads and sell your own stuff on top of that, you should be getting more than that.

    Tons of people do arb. What is your advertising / partner setup? What partners are you using? What is your site vertical? Are you using outstream video and overlay ads? Likewise, what vendors are you buying traffic from? I'm happy to help out if you need it.

    Just remember that you need to keep it in the open, you can't offer any kind of service

    Nice one, a while to go yet before you qualify, you're giving some good advice on threads, don't spoil it by breaking the rules. You know what you are doing, so many newbies try to sell via pm thinking they won't get caught. Just a heads up

    You need to examine your earning partners who u make money from and quality of traffic you are using... chances are one or both is not up to par. People are still making money with arbitrage just that their traffic levels are higher, quality of traffic is high quality and their ad networks/ad management is top notch. All ad networks are NOT equal. Cpm rates can change drastically

    You can arbitrage a lot really,
    I think this topic refers to buying and selling ads.
    E.G Making a website, placing ads, paying for traffic in hopes of making more return on the ads on the site. Classic ad arbitrage. Apparently, it's saturated now, but there will always be pockets of money to be made, correct?

    It’s saturated but people are still doing it at a high level. I been doing it over a decade. The key is being in premium cpm ad networks/ad management companies which totally depends on the niche your website is... also buying clean and high quality real traffic via reliable clean sources... now days u can get kick out of ad network earning wise if they detect you using bot or ivt traffic. The key is finding real sources at the most affordable rates

    Not sure if this counts but I used to do solo ads back in 2012 with a squeeze page + product offer which paid for itself. It grew my email list to 10,000 in 3 weeks and generated $70,000 in profits in very little time. Things were a lot easier back then.

    I still do it with facebook and adsense but it has got harder. I still do six figures a month but the ROI used to be 100% and now it is at 48%. Google keeps making more and more changes making it harder.

    FB to AdSense arb? Is it even worth it? You're doing Tier1, right?

    If you have a good niche with a high cost per click it is. I had a lot of months I was doing $130k a month a month with a $80k profit. But adsense is a big risk and now they have started not showing ads on your site if you are getting traffic from FB.

    Right arbitrage still works for cpm,cpc and cpa. People just have to come to turns with spending. Scaling up and having the funds to do so is also critical to traffic arbitrage.

    I have been doing cpm arbitrage for over a decade the key is clean good quality traffic sources and cash!

    If you are new to arbitrage, don't start with popular sources as FB and IG, too crowded there. Better to work with more niched traffic sources. Arbitrage in 2019 is a lot of test performed, tracker - to ban bad sources etc.. So it's not an easy game rn for beginners.
