    I am not expecting some magic answer but I am really at a lost. I have about 3k USD to spend and I really want to get started on CPA. I really do not know any strategy and I have looked around and the sticky just tell you how to get accepted. I am currently accepted into Limelight CPA and StrongerAds.

    So my basic plan for right now is to build up a Facebook fanpage and aim for 100k fans and make a Twitter account and get 50k real followers.

    This sounds like a good plan so far?

    Also, how can I spend some of my money to get fans and followers faster. Real fans not bots. I have used TweetAttack and have 700 fans, most are real.

    I would suggest choosing a micro-niche, and starting up a blog. With the amount of money you have saved up, you could hire a freelancer to create it, you could even hire a writer to write you up some keyword rich entries.

    Also, it's very difficult to supply "real followers" so be VERY CAUTIOUS when looking for someone who says they can supply you with more than 1000 followers in a very short amount of time.

    If you don't understand cpa why are you going to throw $3000 at it? Keep reading and post back when you have some specific questions for the boards.

    I'm not throwing 3000$ at it. Please read my post, I said I am building up a fan page and getting Twitter followers. I am just wondering if I can get the process done faster.

    First of all, let me shatter your reality cause you will end up throwing your 3k at it in vain.

    Those services, that offer social media services like fans, followers, subscribers etc. There are mainly 2 people that buy these, small business owners , mostly people not into IM much or dont know much about social media and people like you that think these services is a sure way to throw money at it and get fans,followers that they can later monetize to make their money.

    Try to find threads where people actually bought these services and actually made their money back and/or profit. You won't find them, the only manageable way to build real fans,followers is to actually do them yourself or promote them with fan pages/facebook ads etc. Using various tools to promote them, because what you will eventually find out is that you can get higher quality fans and at a much cheaper if you just buy the tools and do them yourself. Trust me with 3000 dollars , I could easily set up an operation with ease that could bring me fan pages with atleast 1 million fans and possibly more.I would just invest into tools, ips, server and some labor.

    I'd try other avenues than Twitter. Twitter traffic converts very, very poorly. There are a lot of other methods you can use other than fanpages also. Have you thought of youtube? You can blast videos and still make recurring conversions months after the fact (I'm still getting conversions from 3+ months ago when I tested it out). I'm going to be going back and doing more.

    Like others said, don't go investing money until you get the general concept first. You use money to scale, not to learn. :)

    I will advise you to spend some time to read a lot of stuffs from this forum before you dabble into internet marketing. Even if you hire a freelancer, it is still useless if you do not know what you are doing.

    buy some adwords or fb and test test test, and when you find a solid campaign that is bringing in a decent roi then you spend your money and invest.

    people sell adwords voucher $100 for $5 I believe, so spend $150 for adwords voucher and get 3000$ of credit, Yeah I know Sound easier then done.
