    Well, something seems to finally be working for me. I don't want to give many details, and I ask that you do not PM me because I will not be giving away anymore details than what I share in this thread.

    Anyways, I went from making practically nothing, to close to $500 today with CPA.

    I am promoting a single offer, using social traffic.

    Scaling it up for tomorrow and hoping to hit $1,000! :)

    The reason I am sharing this with you all, is not to brag or show off, but to show that even when things seem hopeless like they have for me for as long as I can remember for the most part, that you need to keep at it until you find something that works!

    Now get out there and make some money! $$$

    Haha yeah I know, I'm gonna scale this as high as it can go, get the most out of it as I can, then put the profits away until I have something tested and working to invest them in.

    Thanks!

    I'm not asking you to share your method...

    But would you mind sharing what Niche the CPA offer is?

    I was promoting Free Ipad and Free Iphone offers with social traffic and it was working pretty well.

    To be safe, I rotated offers. Well it turns out it was the same advertiser was over all of the offers (even seperate networks) and the traffic wasnt converting well. He blacklisted me from basically every good Ipad or Iphone offer. Now I have no idea what to promote :(

    Are you using high payout networks like NeverBlue and Maxbounty? Or are you being safe and doing Adscend Media or something. Thanks for any help.

    It's an iPad 3 offer. My AM actually called me today, then emailed me and told me that the advertiser is loving the traffic :)

    It's a less known network, payouts are still high. The only reason I am not sharing the network is because this offer is private anyway, and no one really needs to know who it is.

    Actually, I changed my mind, I'll share the network with anyone who wants to know besides you. :D

    Anyone wanting to know, PM me.

    Congrats Senor Black Hat,

    No need to share the method. Sometimes we all get so excited we just want to pop and there is no one in the real world who cares or listens. Sure, $500 a day will get anyone's attention, but here on BHW we REALLY feel your joy :)

    As previously mentioned, don't put all your eggs in one basket. That being said, perhaps you should focus all your time and energy on milking this sucker even if it eventually dries up. Good luck

    Haha, exactly! My parents were a little excited, but still skeptical. Even though I have gotten checks for 1k+ in the mail before, they have been for a month's worth of work. And I still felt little weary too, but when my AM told me that the advertiser loved the traffic, I nearly fainted. Now I don't care if people in the offline world are uninterested at all! :)

    Yeah, I think my best bet would be to milk this as much as I can, then start back at step 1 with a much more positive attitude and some money to invest when I find a long term method.

    Thanks again, bud!

    Who gives a moneky if you tell me your network or not, I just get fedup when people come on and sorta brag about thier earnings, nobody asked for your method, people asked for the network.

    I dont need your network, I get good pay out with peerfly with that offer. Ta very much

    Jeez the guy finally hits something good, and wants to share what he can with his fellow blackhatters, is polite and explains how he doesn't want to share his method (for obvious reasins DUH) and you all cyberbeg the guy for his method.

    Anyways, OP thanks for your inspirational story. I haven't hit my big one yet, but your story is what I'm going to think about everytime I feel discouraged. I'll think "Well, hell if that guy can do it, then I can too" and when I finally do hit a big one, I'll post a thread like this celebrating my success and hopefully inspiring someone else. AND, I'll maybe throw you a few Benjamins too, just too keep things real.

    PM me all the details, which social network, which cpa network, Offer id and STEP BY STEP method to promote it. It'd be better if you can set that up for me because I dont want to take any action. :rolleyes:
