    Hey BHW noobs! I've seen some excellent techniques in this forum about getting accepted into the CPA networks. Most of them require that you "stretch the truth", so to speak. I decided to try something simple and just be as honest as possible.

    A couple of days ago I applied to 7 networks. So far I've been accepted to three. This is what I put on my application. For a website I put Squidoo.com. For website description I said I'd be creating lenses and writing articles to drive traffic to my minisites/landing pages.

    Most of the applications asked for a range in numbers or dollars. I checked the lowest (because I'm new, keeping it honest). Are you an affiliate for any other networks? I put the ones I already applied to (positive thinking). For the types of offers I'm interested in most, I put biz opps, diet & fitness, health & beauty, tho I imagine you could put anything you want. Methods of promotion? Articles, SEO, PPC, Banner ads.

    In the comments box I wrote something like this: I'll be creating Squidoo lenses and writing articles to drive traffic to my minisites/landing pages. Once I see I'm getting good results, then I'll ramp it up with some PPC and banner ad placement. I've also invested in PPC & CPA coaching (BHW, but don't say that!)LOL They don't have to know it's free!

    Then I called them or they called me and I answered.:callyou:
    Sorry for the lengthy post but so far this has gotten me into Amped Media, Motive Interactive, and Market Leverage. Hope this helps.

    P.S. please be creative and change it around a bit. Instead of Squidoo, maybe Hubpages. You get the idea.

    I have one nice blog that Im going to use to apply to all of them. If you apply with a website it helps if you have an email@yourdomain.com from what Ive heard.

    Was thinking of using a blog with some posts. But if a random site can be used, I might just try submitting that. Gotta polish my lying skills. lol

    Yes, you can use random website to sign up. Which is funny. I guess they don't have much time to check who is the real owner of the site. And that loophole is what people like us use to our advantage :).

    All hail BH.

    You're welcome my friend. I'm from the USA. Keep trying as I know there's some networks that you can apply to. Look into OFFERVAULT.COM and AFFSPY.COM. Those are free directories that list the CPA networks, the types of offers, and I think the countries they accept. GOOD LUCK!

    Whilst I don't mean to be negative...No serious online marketer thinks about doing CPA without having a website.
    Many fail to take IM as a proper business and expect to see fast results for everything. Start out with a few niche websites..do some marketing and then start offering your traffic to the CPA companies.

    Appreciate the comment, my friend. And you're probably right. After reading several comments from BHW noobs on other threads about getting accepted however, I found that many of them, like me, didn't have a website. Nor did they feel comfortable lying.

    Since this method worked for me, I thought I'd share it with other noobs. I only applied to seven networks and so far I've been accepted by Amped Media, Market Leverage, Motive Interactive, and XY7. I was denied by Hydra and I'm still waiting approval from Never Blue and Azoogle.

    Now that I've got my foot in the door, I can create articles and lenses and blogs, whatever.....and start getting traffic to those offers.

    I respect the fact that you shared your method. Kudos for that..

    It's just that sometimes I feel that these kind of things kinda alter the focus for newbies in a negative manner.
    The concept should be to get a bunch of traffic first by getting targeted people to your pages and then channeling that traffic to these CPA companies.
    Whilst there are definitely tons of methods that work without having a properly established website (like the various Craigslist methods..) It is always good to establish a base first as that kinda sets you up well for the long term.
    Again...this may just be a rant from me that's probably got less to do with your method above..its just that I keep seeing so many people quitting just because they fail to see IM as a business that is long term and requires effort.

    I always get accepted without a site, not that I do not have any but I don't like them viewing my landing pages. I just say I do PPC and article marketing. I call them a day after I apply and they always accept me.

    Hey Jake, glad to see you've had success getting accepted without a website. There's really no "one way" to get accepted, but yours certainly is brief and to the point.

    Thanks for sharing! :30:
