    Decided to have my first real attempt at CPA, starting today.

    I have tried a few times in the past but always chucked it in too quick, favouring the guaranteed income from Adsense.

    So I already have an account with Trade Doubler (don't know if anyone else uses them here?), i have picked out 4 of the most relevant offers to my niche and set up and 1/4 rotation of those offers - over the next few days I plan to track which ad performs best in terms of CTR and also conversion rate.

    I think trade doubler can do this automatically but i haven't worked that out yet:)

    If things go reasonably well I will look at a few other networks to see if I can find offers even more targeted to my audience.

    Any tips welcome:)

    I used TradeDoubler in the past, it can do what you need.

    Hit me up if you get stuck or want some advise.

    Traffic comes mostly from google search. Some returning visitors, a little bit from twitter and a bit from external links.

    how are you guys finding tradedoubler- im just coming into cpa after adsense ban, any tips you can give as it seems quite a different beast what with the larger commitments required to make sales and all.

    ^^ its been hard work so far, I'm just working to find the best offer for my sites- obviously it's not as quick and easy as adsense, but I guess if you find the right offer then there's lots to be made.

    I have also signed up with cj and another site, can't remember name right now. And I'm experimenting with a few different offers.

    Glad you reminded me about CJ as Id written them off as just another digital bullshit products network like clickbank(/shitbank) but taking another look they have some good fashion related programs here- so I was wrong in my assumption and they are more like tradedoubler in that sense.
