    I have one or two months before I am broke. I need $2K by mid-February.

    Should I spend my time/traffic on CPA or Clickbank?

    I've been able to make $600 in a month with CB but have no experience with CPA... but I've heard CPA pays more with the same traffic. (I don't know for sure.)

    Thank you!

    Well, CPA offers are easier to convert as there are offers that just require ZIP submits or trial signups. But for Clickbank products, the customer needs to fork out $$$ to get something.

    So without a doubt, go for CPA.

    I'm kind of leaning that way. That's what I've heard.

    I have a lot to learn... quickly! :(

    Adsense if possible is your best bet. Customer has to click on an ad and you make money.

    Next would be cpa as there are many many different kinds of offers that you can get paid for. You can get paid for someone just entering their email address, or a little more information.

    Number 3 would be to go with cj.com or amazon, because you can do specific products and make good money.

    My fourth cause I can't think of anything else would be clickbank. Not anywhere close to my favorite, but you have made $600 with them before, so maybe you should scale that up if possible.

    Good luck on your venture, starting from scratch that is a long but doable reach.

    Hmmm.

    Can anyone recommend a CPA crash course?

    I don't belong to any CPA sites. I think I have to have an existing website to get accepted. Any thoughts? I have a bunch of backed up WP sites that look real. I can restore.

    with your limited time you should stick with whats already making you money already and just focus on scaling it/refining it. Makes very little sense to hop from one method to another because

    1- youre on a deadline
    2- youll be new to cpa so most of that time will be spent learning
    3- no guarantees youll make any money.


    dont go for CPA because you heard its more lucrative. As stated above you have limited time before you go broke, its hardly time to experiment with a new method that may or may not make you money right?

    It all depends on your resources man. Whenever you try anything new there's always some trial and error though so if you can just scale what's worked for you that's a better way to go. And I just want to be realistic. For some people it takes weeks, some months, and for a lot it just never happens so brace yourself. If I told you it's likely you're going to post asking questions on here and find a way to get you that money I'd be giving you really bad advice.

    depends on niche, if you find a good niche which converts well, then you will able to make money on cpa.

    Men if you are already making money in CB is better just to scale it up since you got only 2 1/2 months to get 2k, you dont have the time to lean CPA that well, you need to experiment a lot of products.

    If you've done some research in a method and you've done it well and you need urgent money, what is the best approach? :)

    Regards,
    Antonio

    go get a job.

    it takes money to make money on the internet. The more you have the quicker you can scale up. Unless you have the capital to start properly, it will not be quick for you at all. Sorry, but thats the truth. Or you can believe all the broke ass people who are telling you otherwise.

    Yeah I'd have to disagree with you there. There's plenty of methods that cost nothing, having money might make work easier though. Not to mention the guy has already made $600 on CB, just work twice as hard as you did that month OP.

    Man, let me tell you from experience, it's hard to make money online when you're in panic mode. Good luck

    Man - just scale it up - unless I've misunderstood your making $600/month - Dec-Jan-Feb your almost at $2k as it is! Add another $200/month (think 1 sale a week) to what you are doing and you've done it. CPA is very competitive as well!

    A very good point. Moreover when you most likely fail the first time you might make the mistake to give up on that method for good. Nothing is worse than associating some failure with negative emotions. That's the limbo compulsive gamblers, psychologically impotent dudes and desperate overweight persons are in. If they keep looking for a well paid job / follow certified professional's advice / eat less than they burn they'd see great results in less than 6 months.

    Same risk with you rushing to find stuff that works. Not that you have a choice it seems but keep that in mind when deciding something is not for you.

    Well, it's been a few months since I did that. But I KNOW I can do it so I CAN do it again.

    Thanks everyone for all your feedback. I'm going to do CB and Adsense on some autoblogs.

    Wish me luck! :)
