    I have been reading all day about cpa and i just can't wrap my head around what' happening. I have lots of autoblogs and mfs sitess, i know hoe to build and design, i know ppc - but i never did cpa.

    i know you need an account, but after that what happen? what do i create? I know i need to clicks and addy or zip fille but how? do i build a page? wp or html? is it s simple type landing page like an mfa page? a full blown blog?

    Im lost. I posted earlier to see if someone could point me towards a solid credible read if they have time. Thanks dudes.

    Home Page:
    Build a website. Sign up with a cpa company. Post ad on website. People click and buy or click and fill out info. You get paid how much it says it worth. Most cpa you can choice a banner to use that sends them to the page they fill out.

    Not really. CPA networks offer a range of different types of offers, so you can choose the best type of offer to use on your site, or through whatever method you choose. Its the same deal though, you perform an action (make a sale, get an email or Zip etc), and you get paid commision.

    Most CPA offers supply you a banner link or email text & graphics. As long as you have the traffic, you just plop a CPA banner on your page and off they go. They just have to fill out a bullsh*t form with their email, and you get paid a buck. (or so)

    What your asking these people to do is make their lives as painful as possible by giving away their email, then phone number, then credit card, etc. (YOU don't do this, they hammer anyone dumb enough to sign up with a legit email)

    The mantra around here is it's "easy" to make money with CPA stuff. Sure...as long as you have the traffic to direct to them. Most of the stuff is crap and getting someone to believe their bullsh*t offer that usually includes "FREE" or "EASY".

    Now, I DIDN'T say you can't make money with this. I have a whole site dedicated to free gift cards. I shake my head every time some idiot signs up for one of them. I feel like emailing them and going "WHAT THE F*CK IS WRONG WITH YOU?"

    Did I mention IM has drained me of all morals? :p
