    Dear BHW friends,

    I'm planning on starting ppc + cpa in the near future so i'm saving up some money for it, so knowing that i have never done this before how much money do you think i need to start from the learning process and then try to make a profit out of it ? 1k dollars maybe, or is 2 or 3 safer ?

    And what networks do you guys think it's better to start with, 2nd tier networks like 7search or big networks like google and bing ?

    Thanks in advance

    Id say a minimum of $1,000 that you can afford to lose, the more the better.
    You will be doing a lot of testing to find things that work, offers that convert etc.. But once you do you can bank hard.

    Bing should be a good start or you can go with FB also google hates affs....so does FB but you are ok with promoting offers on FB without the need of a cloaker.

    starting with a few partners its the best way to go. That way you can do more testing and when you find what gives most profit you put all the money on it and repeat.

    Unfortunately, i don't know anyone in real life who's into internet marketing like i am. And also if you go it alone there's more risk but more money to win.

    I think $1k is good enough but more is better. Though you want to invest pretty well amount so you should join well known reputed CPA network.
    PeerFly, MaxBounty. You can also promote Click Bank, Link Share, JVZoo Products.

    Greedyness is not a good way to go.

    It's not about greed really, it's just that i don't know anyone who's into internet marketing and i don't know if i would be comfortable working with someone i meet online

    Since when has it been considered greed to work on your own? I prefer to work solo as do a lot of people.
    Has absolutely nothing to do with being greedy. No one is relying on me and vice versa.

    I would suggest either POF, Bing, or FB. These self service platforms offer relatively low CPC's compared to adwords.

    You'll need at least $1k-$5k depending on your experience.

    A tracker is a must and be sure to split test many creatives and LP's.
