    So I was thinking about this.

    Say people open their CPA accounts and read every offer eg Iphone 5,Giftcards,free downloaders and simply make a website/blog about it and promote it.When people visit and,they'll definitely click and upon clicking see that it's the exact same thing like Win Iphone 5.Won't they be more then EVER inclined to complete it?

    Isn't this what most people do?

    Are you talking about landing page?

    Wonder if he is talking about those "games" like shoot 5 iphones to get free and so which are flash based ads. I always shoot 4 and leave. Though some have gone to that they say 5 but redirect after first click.

    Even if someone plays the "game" it does not mean they want to fill in their information and compete the offer really.

    I think you guys are over-thinking it. He just wants to know if making a site out of all the "get free stuff", "win iphone/ipad/ipwn/ismack!" (reference), "receive gifts" CPA offers and bringing traffic to it would make money. Am I right, OP? Like, not a landing page for one offer, but sort of a review site for those offers or whatever you want to call it. Basically putting a lot of CPA offers into one place (all the "free stuff" category offers, that is) and shooting it to freebie and prize seekers...
    Funny I stumbled upon this thread, because I just finished exactly that kind of site myself. Just searching where to get targeted traffic. Like the OP, I would also want to know your opinion, BHW members.

    Holy shit! How did you get from his post to that? Wow! Did you work on the original Enigma decoder or do you have a doctor's degree in Egyptology? I'm rarely impressed, but that just took my breath away. When I read his post my brain just froze completely and I had to do a hard reboot.

    Well done!

    Agree with bigbong have no idea how the heck he understood that. That said I think ranking a pageful of flash CPA offers would be next to friggin impossible. It's hard enough WITH content, can't imagine without. But I may have misunderstood his (rather cryptic) question.

    Well ok, maybe ranking for organic traffic is difficult for such a website. But landing pages are also rarely ranked for google. And a lot of people doing CPA choose other kinds of traffic, like YT, Yahoo answers, classifieds, etc. So I think the same implies here.

    As I said, I just finished that kind of website (described by OP and clarified by me) and now I'm searching for the right audience. It seems that more and more people are starting to realize that these "complete a survey to get free stuff" offers are bs. They're not as gullible and naive as they used to be. Yahoo answers is full of know-at-alls that completely destroy your plans of getting traffic from there (they flag you or start explaining that these offers are scams). YT is the same, although you can turn off comments and rating, but that instantly alerts anyone who watches your vid that it's bs. Classifieds are insanely strict. And I consider myself a newbie, so I can't talk for the pros who are probably banking real hard from craigslist or some other classifieds site... But I just don't know how.

    Anyways, just realized that this thread is not about what I just wrote.

    To the OP: I'll let you know how's it going for me with that website you described. Maybe it'll be bad, maybe it'll be gold. Either way, I'll tell you.

    P.S. - as we're already discussing this, maybe someone knows where to find freebie/prize seekers? This is quite targeted...

    Thanks in advance to anyone who replies!

    A complete website full of those offers wont be a good idea in my opinion. Multi-offer landing pages, however, can sometimes bring in lots of cash. I don't recommend using free traffic methods for this one though. I'm actually quite surprised from reading around that most BHW people don't deal with paid traffic at all when it comes to cpa, when this is one of the best ways to do it. Such landing pages nevertheless take a lot of split-testing and optimization before you can make them profitable, but if you reach the point where you're in profit the ROI can be very big. Not to mention that you really have to have experience with your paid traffic of choice ( and overall with paid traffic ). My thinking is, if you research the demographics well, some media buys and perhaps PPV can do well for those.

    Just throwing in my thoughts here. Might as well work with the free traffic methods and a full site, who knows? Test, test, test and test some more.

    Of course my plan for the long run is to get into paid traffic: PPV, PPC, media buys... But I just don't have the funds for that right now. I'm going to try to build up some cash with free traffic, then do research on paid traffic and get into that game. From what I read here and on other forums - that's where the big money is.

    Thanks for the opinion and suggestions!
