    I'm in the process of writing an actual book (not ebook) about my adventures in cpa. The good, bad and ugly. I'm doing research right now of what the most legendary offers in the industry have been...past and present...

    I'd like input from the group on what cpa offers over the last 5 years have been monster successes. I mean, huge successes. I'd also like the 'current' monsters out there....

    Thanks a bunch, and everyone that gives valuable input here will get a copy of the book when it is released (I dont have a release date yet, but I'm like 70% done with it).

    The whole free ipod thing that began around 2004, which utilized CPA offers (think the company was called Gratis).

    Free Gift Vouchers
    Free Laptops / Mac Books
    Free Acai

    Have been the biggest successes imo.

    Biggest fails for me were Teeth Whitening - i just couldnt get that stuff to convert no matter what i did! hundreds and hundreds of clicks, no converts. and Free Makeup offers.

    Both took me by surprise as i thought they would shift like crazy, maby it was just me marketing it wrong (i suspect it was) but dammit i gave it a damn good go.

    Also, informational products never did it for me. eBooks died a death about 10 years ago.

    I think something that's definitely worth mentioning is mobile offers (IQ tests etc.)

    Both the advertisers and those publishers who know how to use them make a bank with them and I consider them the sneakiest offers available (easily beating 'free trials' and 'free stuff' email submits), simply because in most cases the customer isn't even properly notified of the fact that they would be immediately charged - and often enough they don't find it out until months later, unless they analyze their mobile bill very carefully.

    Thx bryanon,

    This is an example of a perfect post...he tells us what is hot, and WHY he feels it's a cpa juggernaut...

    Looking for more posts like this...also, please do not just repost the same stuff that's been posted already, unless you have additional insight to give...

    Definitely This... Ringtones turned my eye from white hat SEO to black hat affiliate promotions.

    It worked because it met a need, cell phones were just becoming powerful enough to make polyphonic ringtones and mp3s a consumer commodity and the firmly established CPA model made alot of companies more than willing to experiment with a campaign.

    Haha add to this ubiquity of PPC advertising, and the rise of Youtube, and it was just a perfect storm of opportunity and consumer interest.

    Acai by far, since Oprah / Dr.Oz mentioned it, do some research on the whole HARPO legal cases, there are plenty of legal documents available.

    Freecr€ditreport.c0m is without a doubt a legend.

    They went from banners, to ghetto ass TV commercials a couple years back that looked like they were made using wind0ws m0vie maker, to commercials that match the quality of some fortune 500 companies. They're no longer a CPA offer company anymore.
    They're a freaking brand.

    Do you guys have any idea what C0nsumer Info's yearly revenues are? Between 45 and 50 million per year. And you know their overhead isn't shit - they don't ship anything or have any inventory. Genius really.
