    Ive just discovered BHW a couple of weeks ago. Before that I knew NOTHING about internet marketing.

    You can make decent money with CPA offers if you just get yourself a way to get traffic or give an incentive.

    And before I start, this is a gathering of everything I found here on BHW. Nothing new.

    Oh and Im Canadian.

    STEP 1: The first thing you need is a host. I chose hostgator because it is super easy. If you're a noob, go with hostgator. Take the swam package at 14$ a month and get a coupon code (search google) to get it for $5.

    STEP 2: Register some domains. I would suggest going to co.cc to get some domains for free because if you don't know what you're doing spending money on domain isn't good. Now play with it and get your domain hosted, get an email address that you host with your domain name. If you don't know how, learn!!

    STEP 3: Go to wordpress and learn how yo use it. Build some blogs (3 or so) about anything with a couple of posts and some ads. If you don't know how, LEARN! Once you get into one CPA company, put the CPA ads on them as the other companies will see that and like it.

    STEP 4: You need to be ready to answer all those questions from the CPA company:

    Q:How many uniques a month do you get?
    A:50000-100000
    Q:How do you get traffic?
    A:I build blogs and webpages and I get traffic through PPC on google.
    Q:How long have you been doing Internet Marketing?
    A:1 year and a half
    Q:What has worked for you in the past?
    A:Only PPC
    Q:What vertical/category/kind of offer you want to promote, or have promoted in the past?
    A:Anything that converts, I've done gaming, freebies, health, ringtones, email submit, etc..
    Q:Do you offer incentives?
    A:NO
    Q:How much do you spend on advertising?
    A:100$ per day
    Q:Do you work with other network, which ones?
    A:YES, name any that you have been accepted at or name any random ones.
    Q:How did you hear about us?
    A:My friend told me, but he doesn't work with you.

    STEP 5: On a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday (not a Friday), go apply to all of those. Use your email with your domain. Use your websites. And use your pre-rehearsed answers to fill the forms.

    AzoogleAds
    Maxbounty
    Co Prosper
    Ads4Dough
    Copeac
    CPA Storm
    CPA Empire
    Hydra Network
    NeverBlueAds
    Primary Ads
    Rocket Profit
    Advaliant
    Aquasis
    BluePhoenix
    IncentaClick
    Market Leverage
    Panthera Network
    Revenue Loop
    RexTopia
    LeaderMarkets
    ROI Rocket

    Step 6: Between 1PM-6PM (weekday) call all of them. You should have all their numbers in your email inbox. They WILL call you and if you don't pick up you WILL get denied. Might as well call them and be ready.

    If you are nervous call a friend and talk a bit before (don't tell him about the CPA thing). Walk while you call them (or do something else like driving or laundry etc). It gives momentum and confidence.

    Call all of them after the others. Don't get lazy. If you get denied disregard it. Drink a redbull or whatever makes you feel focused. Momentum is key.

    Thats a great post. Helps people get over the fear of bringing the internet into real life and getting past mental blockages that inhibit your performance.

    Good honestly in there that I'm sure any new blood would be able to relate too!

    Just don't be SO new that you copy HIS answers verbatim!

    This is a great post for any newbie. To be honest, if someone can't follow that set of simple instructions, he/she should just be like a snow flake and melt away.........

    one other thing, make a point of blocking EVERYTHING else out and do this for about 3 or 4 hours at a time and ALWAYS follow up with them.

    Also, have a ready made answer if/when you get knocked back from them, something like "can you be more specific cause I've never been knocked back before and as we are professional fulltime IM's, growing steadily over the past few years we might still need an account in future. We are always looking for new offers to test and we thought you would have been a good fit."

    if anyone want a massive list of CPA companies to target shoot me a PM

    There's one thing that can get you in trouble, if you say you receive XXX amount of traffic, some networks will check you out and see where is your site or blog standing in terms of traffic.

    i live outside the u.s. too.
    check how they pay if they can send you a check or via paypal...
    also check the tax related stuff.. they will ask you to fill a form...

    one problem if they do call is the time zones but.
    i believe there is also a post here about cpa companies that dont call you so it might be good starting with them...

    also great post i just followed your instructions twisting them a bit and applied to Hydra....wish me luck...
    LOL!!!

    Great Post!

    Confidence is key when talking to the Networks.
    Don't be a prick or get too cocky, but if you put off a
    vibe that you are the best, you know what you are doing, they'll
    accept you. If not, move on.

    I've been accepted to every network I've applied to, even using
    a website that gets like 10 hits a day. lol

    As for non us affiliates, aren't there affiliate networks over seas?
    I could have sworn there was one I wanted to apply to but I couldn't
    because they were located in the UK? Hmmm.

    I applied last night at Ne_ver_blue and they called me the next day from British Columbia. I was sleeping when they called (I sleep during the day), and he left a message saying to call back at his extension. Seemed like a nice guy.

    Interesting, because I'm in the UK, and have applied to over 70 networks in the last week, been refused on paper by around 30% , all of which 100% have approved my application after a brief phone call.

    Being in the UK is simply not a problem at all.

    Sometimes they ask this question...."What type of affiliate marketing do you do?" Email, Search or Web?
    • Should I pick all 3 or is picking all 3 a red flag?
    • If I only pick one which one should it be?

    Thanks for any answers.

    I would usually say Search / web

    Well i just spend 5 days signing up to 100+ networks ...

    I have been denied about 5 so far they won't tell me why except one said I did not own my domains .I emailed them back I own that domain and 130 more,But I guess your company does not want to make money ..

    Most CPA Network allow redirecting url to offer so using Topgen and DPGP"(DoorwayPageGeneratorPro to run offers beside my other sites .
    I was only using cj.com for a long while but now going more cpa networks.cj.com one of those that hate redirecting marketing as I call it ...
