    I know there are good methods out there to make quick cash especially using a CPA network. I had one particular method that involved instagram and I made about 300 bucks using it despite being a complete newb. Eventually my accounts got banned and now I'm looking into other methods. I plan to take advantage of the other black hat type methods of spamming/using bots to promote hard and make some serious cash.

    My concern is that I know something like that won't last, I'd probably make serious money for a couple of months but it seems like inevitably I'd get banned off the platform I'm using or the method will become obsolete. What are some good white hat methods to make money that will last for years to come and large potential for growth? Specifically something that involves a CPA network because so far I like the network that I'm on and there's potential to earn good money. Only problem is each offer in the US (where I'm from) is a page submit and worth $1.50-$2.50 and the offers are for the most part random, it'd be hard to select one and then make a niche website for that one offer. Thoughts?

    You want sustainability?

    Email lists (provide value so they actually stay)
    Physical products business (E-commerce)
    Marketing services (offline)
    Media buys. Find campaigns that will profit for a long time to come
    Your own products

    If you want something easy stick to what you are doing now. Want something nice and long term with the potentiality
    to scale to 6 figures and beyond per month? Work hard and set up real businesses. I suggest looking up
    Trey Lewellin, Russel Brunson, Donald Wilson and the likes to get some inspiration as to what is really possible.

    Cheers

    I copy that;

    Now if you want to keep doing what you were doing, the key will be adaptability, reactivity & scale up. You can't just take a method, make a quick buck of it and cry when it's over. You have to think of exit strategies. Whenever I start something shady, fishy or that won't last long, I always ask myself tons of "what if".

    What if my account get banned ? Can I make another one quickly? Can I protect more this one ? Can I find a way to keep those leads I had ?
    What if the method get saturated ? Can I find something to bring more values that competitors ? Is there another similar unsaturated market around ? Can I try on a similar site ?
    What if the site/app catch up with my business ? Is there something else I can do on their platform ?

    Always think in advance, never rely on what brings you bacon today, but on what will tomorrow.

    I was thinking more of something that you have all rights to and own. For example owning a website that can passively create 100 bucks a day and potentially more. By doing this you won't have to rely on other platforms, or your accounts getting banned, etc. You'd have full control. The only problem is I'm not sure how to generate solid traffic on a website (besides SEO but that takes months and months to see any small results).

    I also don't really have a good baseline. I made my first website a couple of months ago (it was an amazon affiliate site) but it failed and I only made about $13 out of it in like 1-2 months of work. Are there any good starting guides that aren't saturated on how to create something white hat that has the potential to grow?

    The issue isn't really saturation of the method, though, so much as it's probably saturation of the particular niche you chose. Obviously no guide is going to share what niche is both unsaturated and profitable, so that's up to you to find out. Since you tried something and have decided it failed (word to the wise, 1-2 months may not be long enough to determine success in a whitehat project), why not analyze what went wrong and see if you can adjust course?

    Im not bashing CPA but in general its not the best for long lasting. CPA is usually more for when you got something really targeted or if you get viral and find a way to do some incentive stuff.
    if you want to build something that is stable then youre gonna need to make your money off of display ads and videos.

    Inevitably, you will get banned. Methods dry up, like you say.

    You have to create value for others or for society if you want to get paid long-term. (It can take years for some people to learn this simple secret, especially in the internet marketing field.) Basically, how much value you can create determines how much money society will be willing to give you. I can tell you from having worked for years to build something that lasts: tricks, schemes, and other methods that leave you scrambling every day to rebuild will never last long, and you'll just end up working longer hours. You can automate them to make them work faster, use bots etc, but what really lasts for a long time is creating a system that creates value for others, automatically.

    I'm not sure what that is for you - for me, it was building a way for others to automate easier and faster. For you, maybe it will be in creating a CPA network, or in writing better content than others, or in aggregating information, or sending very targeted traffic exactly where it needs to go. What is definitely true is that you can do it, with the right effort and tools.

    didn't read all replays here but here's my few cents. whatever u wan a last long enough to make you money make sure its white hat as black hat tactics known well to die at some point and you have to start again or look for other ways, also good tip it's to have back-up plan for example when brown stuff hit the fence where u gone a run what u gone a to do, also safe, reinvest, scale & repeat...
