    What was I thinking?!
    There's so many CPA programs out there, and I never really understood how to DO CPA offers, until Yesterday, and it was then that it hit me....

    I'm going to get fuckin RICH!! I'm going to put every minute of every workday into maximizing earnings from CPA programs.....and I'm going to show the world what's up!

    I have SO MANY different ideas STORMING through my head right now, and I don't understand why I didn't pick up on this before?!?!...

    I mean, they'll pay me $2.00 for someone to enter their Fuckin E-mail ?!?!

    Hopefully, I end up making bank from this new *understanding*.... and if I do, i'll include it in my new (make money guide :p) ***COMING SOON***

    Has anyone else JUST figured out CPA ?.....lol

    BTW- I Love you Wakka... :D , In a good way

    great to hear that you are doing well. but dont think youre getting rich fast. getting paid is the hardest part! cover your tracks well when youre doing blackhat stuff.

    Use long tail-low competition keywords at starting.

    CPA is not as easy as it seems. I was once like you when I first "discovered" CPA.

    Problems include: networking shaving and down right bad tracking. And if you're doing something grey/blackhat, the networks will drop you like a hot potato without asking questions.

    People also tend to put in fake info when asked to provide personal information. Ask yourself, how many times have you put in some made up emails and phone numbers in those forms? And all those fake leads will get scrubbed.

    Baton,

    What sort of real lead vs scrubbed lead ratio do you see? I am about to start trying out some CPA work and want to know what to expect?

    CPA has the biggest pile of gold out there right now IMHO. The problem is you there can be a lot of learning curve road blocks. Those can be expensive both in terms of time and money.

    It's not quite as simple as getting someone to enter there email address. Well, I take that back it is that simple, and is easy to make lots of money on paper. The only problem is that the affiliate will ban you and keep your money if none of the submits are converting.

    So you need some quality traffic as well as some shit traffic? I need some traffic where they actually want to sign up to get X and are willing to do some offers to get it?

    not sure about that particular offer but most expect the submitter to sign up for some type of service, or make some type of purchase. Read the terms of service carefully.

    Think of it this way; you're getting paid to for someone to enter their name and email.

    Does that make sense to you? They're not going to hand out money for nothing in return. They have to be earning something on their side and if they don't get it they'll scrub, ban, whatever.

    scrubbing means not crediting you for a lead you produced for the merchant/network basically all networks/merchants do it here and there and some networks simply rob you so choose your offers/networks carefully.
