Hey all, Even though there's been a lot of discussion regarding CPA Network acceptance on this forum and there's some truly great advice out there - there's a few issues with most of the discussed techniques: * (Claim to be doing PPC) - This one has been used for ages, and consequently the CPA networks have smartened up quite a bit, having started asking different PPC-related questions which a newbie who actually doesn't have any idea about PPC simply can't answer and/or starts stuttering. * (Register a business) - Not feasible for those looking for a $0-investment startup. * (Create a website with a few affiliate links) - Takes a little bit of time and is generally not suitable for people who are afraid of long phone conversations, as the networks often want to know quite a bit about your plans regarding marketing your website. Based on this, I decided to share a quick technique that I've suggested to some of my mates in the past and as a result, all of them have been accepted to most networks they have applied to. Ok, so here goes - a simple 2-Step method on how to get accepted quickly and without much hassle. Step 1 Apply for an account with the CPA Network of your choice, leaving the website field of the registration application empty or using google.com as your site and saying the following in the 'description' or 'additional comments' field (not word-by-word please - do yourself a favour): Or alternatively: You can top any of the above statements up by something like "I am, however, looking into starting with CPA offers myself very soon" - to avoid the network simply issuing you with a referral link and not an actual account (unlikely, but may happen.) Step 2 After submitting your application, wait for a day and then (IMPORTANT!) give the network a phonecall asking about the status of your application. This speeds up the process quite a bit and shows them that you're actually eager to promote them. I can't stress this enough - showing initiative and phoning THEM (as opposed to waiting for a week and having them phone you) is important! When talking to your future Affiliate Manager, use the very same script that I described in Step 1. If the AM asks you questions about your book, you can simply say that it will be on PPC advertising (or use any other topic), which you personally don't know a lot about but your co-author does. You're just helping him out in terms of admin tasks, content revision etc. etc. - This will beautifully eliminate the risk of getting caught for not knowing that you're talking about. That's it! I had a friend try this exact technique a few weeks back and he got accepted to all 6 networks that he applied to, proving that it's something that works incredibly well. All the best, Bryan P.S. As with everything - use your imagination. Chances are that after this post all major networks will get tons of applications, all copy-pasted from my post so unless you're creative, you'll be "busted".
