    Hi everyone,
    I want to get into CPA marketing, so I need to get into first company to get me started. I bought domain, and hosting yesterday and today I filled my blog with some content, so I want your opinion on it. Is it good enough to be considered as acceptable by CPA companies (specifically Maxbounty)?
    Thank you.

    I applied to CPA networks with domains that weren't even developed yet. As in, they had been registered and had been parked with my hosting company but had absolutely zero content whatsoever.

    What did I do? I told my AMs that the sites were under reconstruction and that I had wiped the slate clean. As long as you can tell them a good enough story and convince them that you aren't a total noob to the industry you should be fine.

    I'm currently working with one of the biggest CPA networks right now and I got in after a phone call with zero experience whatsoever and a blank webpage.

    If you know what you are talking about and call the CPA company you will get into any network easy. Webpage to show em or not.

    Sometimes you don't even need a site to get accepted. Say you email market and offline market as well.

    Any site is good enough. Sometimes you may want to hire someone for $100 to create a nice looking layout for you if you can't make one and get accepted

    you should be fine though :)

    just tell them some bullshit about how good are you at internet marketing and ppc marketing,when they ask your niche,just say that you can promote all offers as far as they convert.Its that simple.

    Yes, most of them love adwords traffic and email traffic. you can tell them you have a large email list and have lots of experience on adwords, and you have generate $2000 a week, you just want to test their exclusive offers~

    Home Page:
    Am I the first guy to open your site and say if it's good enough?
    (Guys... the bit(dot)ly/YUAhW he posted is actually a link to his site!)

    IMHO your site definitely looks good enough for inclusion.
    • Looks very clean, white-hat.
    • Visuals are good quality.
    • Content is good. Not unique, I guess, but that won't be a prob at all (if they ask about it in the interview - tell the truth! Uniqueness won't matter, as long as they know you're a "clean" and honest site)
    • The only thing I would change b4 contacting the CPA companies is remove the ad that appears every few pages (such as when clicking "previous posts" a couple times). You can always add it back again after getting approved.
    Hope this helped!,
    Cheers,
    Brad

    I tried to click several times on "previous post", but never see any add appearing... Hmm.. Are you hitting "previous post" several times fast, or what?

    Thanks for the actual answer to my question btw... ;)

    Thanks for this tip man.

    i have accts at over 50 cpa accts and i have only been turned down by advertising.com. when you ask "is my site good enough?" think about this... i don't even have a site!

    Just a suggestion. Don't use the right hand side area to sleep. Give users something useful there. It will help you to get repeat visitors.

    (This has nothing to do with CPA but with traffic)

    I don't think it is a good site.
    - The network is interested in your site to know you better and to check you are real. The site is clearly a dummy site and nothing relates it to you. Where is your name, are you the owner, how can you be contacted, etc... ?
    Anyone can claim being the owner of this site, so it's worthless to a CPA Network.
    - The site has 10 PLR(?) articles and looking at the posts it only exists 1 week. They might think you've been on the internet for a week only and want to check out what aff. marketing is.

    If I was a from a CPA Network, I'd reject your application just because of this site, as I have the impression you are not taking this business serious.

    your site is def good enough

    The points in the previous post are good points tho'

    But in my opinion your aff manager will look at the site and put a tick in that box then he will turn his attention to you.

    You need to be able to convince him that you MIGHT be able to make him money.

    Appear knowledgeble, tell him about your experience, mention where you will get traffic and the types of offers you are looking for and don't forget to tell them you will slowly test each offer at first then ramp up if/when the numbers point to going in that direction.

    The site is good enough so I would def get into a few networks, go to www dot stats*remote dot com/programs and apply to say 5 networks, call them all up after about 2 hours saying your calling to get approved now.

    Have you q's and answers ready.

    Learn from what the results are but if you don't get in simply apply to another few having learned from your mistakes. Rinse and repeat till you have enough.

    Just so you know, when I got into this about 4 years ago my site was hand built (really crap) and it was about paying people to fill out non incentivized leads and I never got knocked back once. I know things are different now but that is still the site I use now and now I do a lot of biz with the networks.

    Make sure you have roboform for the submissions to save time

    When you get onboard join aff*spy dot com and offer*vault dot com to compare offers

    Hope that helps
