    Hey BHW,

    So I finally took some action today and bought what I hope is a profitable domain. It's of the form wina<product>.com , and the product is one that people would be highly interested in winning, so I don't think that'll be a problem.

    That said, I'm looking for the best way to monetize it, given that I'm not in the states and would like to receive all payment to an unverified paypal account... I know that sounds tough, but for reasons I won't get into, receiving a check is simply very, very difficult for me.

    I was thinking probably CPA, having a form (i-framed perhaps) , "Fill in your details below for a chance to win" type of a thing, as well as collecting emails to claim later on that I'm giving out a second one and for people to try again and stuff, but also having a product related blog below that, for SEO and to make the site seem more legit...

    Now that said, will CPA companies be cool with this? I'm guessing I'll have to blank the referrers, but also which companies would be good for me to use, and would they freak out if I had a sudden spike in traffic, etc? Also, should I just stick to e-mail/zip submits, or use longer forms?

    Any ideas or feedback?
    Thanks in advance,
    Femir

    Also, just thought I'd mention that I don't exactly have a ton of expendable cash, so yeah... bought the domain and I'mma try and get some hosting, but that's about it...

    do a search in the forum there are some threads of how you can get some free hosting at least till you able to actually buy a host, congrats on taking a step most people just sit on the side line and never do nothing then complain that they are not making any money, you at least took a chance and there fore are way ahead of so many other people.
