First, you should know that new CPA accounts are watched carefully. Any new affiliates first few leads through my network were manually verified through the client. So early leads must be solid. Second, you can expect 1 conversion for every 10,000 untargeted emails sent. Third, I make my CPA money offline. Online has not been as good to me. Pass out flyers at ballgames, or get a booth. The method is to go to a minor league ballgame and pay about a $100 dollars per game for a booth. This is work. You can get booth space the day of the game as these people are desperate for revenue. Create or buy some cheap free gift. In my case I give away cheap stuff from Wal-Mart. Get a decent paying lead and promote your gift. You should double your money by first pitch. This is work. Asses will have to be unglued from couch. Make it blackhat by using proxies or just clear it with your AM. Most will be cool so long as they are solid leads. Another way is just to sandblast every free bulletin board you can find wth your easy to remember, tear off at the bottom domain that redirects. Again, asses must be unglued. Must be willing to make effort. I am still interested in job that pays per minute ass glued to the couch, but have yet to find one. These are not really blackhat or for the advanced guys on here, but for a noob with some drive, this will make a bit of decent money for them.
