    Hey guys,

    I make some great money running an article outsourcing firm but I've been looking to get something more passive. Recently I've been dabbling with CPA to try to build that type of income.

    I picked up Poll Control (great investment) and my goal is to use it to run polls on PPC using cheaply targeted keywords. (Ideally, target a cheap keyword and send the poll responder to a cpa offer....my biggest problem with this method is being google slapped for not having a relevant landing page which is a whole other issue...)

    Anyway, made a poll today about the release of Windows 7.

    Are you going to download the Windows 7 Beta?

    And I put the following instructions:

    Step One: Cast your vote below.
    Step Two: IMPORTANT To ensure there is only one vote per person you must complete the information on the following pages! This will qualify you for a FREE laptop in exchange for your time!

    Of course - the following 2 page CPA offer is for a sony vaio (and is converting at .54 EPC network wide)

    On the rest of the page I have youtube vids and a yahoo news feed about Windows 7.

    So how did I get traffic and some conversions very quickly? Simple - I'm a teenager in college who actively uses facebook. Slapped that sucker into my status message and it gets broadcasted to all of my nosy body friends.

    I made my status: <MY NAME> wants to know if you're going to dl windows 7! <LINK TO POLL> (Put in your info to get the laptop!)

    Sure enough, got 18 clicks on YES and 3 converted so far. (Just changed the copy to say that you have to put in your info for your vote to be counted so more people will do it.

    Now, $7 isn't much at all....but it's showing me that I do have a resource I can tap into and now that I'm tweaking my copy I should even get more conversions in the future when I do similar things.

    Again, not a lot of money .... but something for you to think about and ideally, expand on.

    (PS: If you can help me with my landing pages getting slapped I'd be more than grateful!)

    It sounds like you have mostly pictures and videos on your landing page. Use your keywords as a bold title at the top of the page some how. Add a paragraph of text with your keywords between your videos. Then use your keywords again at the end of the page. Since Google can only read text. This should improve your quality score.

    Good Luck and update us on how it turns out.

    I filled out the meta, and I have the keywords used all over the place from the Yahoo RSS feed - I will try to type out my own stuff somewhere on the page as weel - thanks for the heads up!
