    About two years ago when I looked into advertising through (established) CPA networks the minimum monthly budget they required was $5-10k.

    This may easily have changed by now, though, so your best bet is to drop them an e-mail or call them and find it out yourself!

    There's nothing about monthly/yearly price/budget on their website. I have sent them an email (12-14) days ago and there's still no reply from them. Try emailing them, maybe you're lucky and you'll get their reply.

    I think the best way it to make a call to them. I never got any replys on emails.

    Has anyone advertised on CJ and spun a profit? It seems that if you have a product and other people are willing to sell it for you then it's almost impossible not to make a profit?

    I'd love to hear your thoughts.

    Thanks.

    The problem you'd quickly be facing is:

    a) If your campaign is pay-per-sale then your product / pitch page / pricing needs to be very attractive to get decent affiliates promoting it.

    b) If your campaign is pay-per-lead then obviously, you need to have a great way to monetize those leads and if you fail to do so then you'll end up losing lots of money.

    Thanks for the feedback - I understand all of that.

    What is the potenial threat of losing money then, the fact that the 'buyer' may want a refund I suppose?

    What is stopping one of us from writing an e-book about a subject and selling it for $50 and someone else doing all the work to sell that?

    If the only object in the way is that CJ want you to commit to $5000 then I am sure we can spin a profit quickly?

    What sort of email address are you emailing from? I have noticed that with larger companies they often will ignore emails from hotmail/gmail and the like.

    If your really from China yes go ahead and look as professional as possible. When I joined about 2 years ago I just told them I was interested in affiliate marketing. I did have a website at the time.

    In my experience there is a far greater chance of a response. *Generally* speaking, professionals do not email from a gmail account.
