    Hello,

    I am a bit confused about my current situation. I've tried PPC in the past and it was EXPENSIVE! Now, I've tried outsourcing a few projects, but the freelancers are unable to complete them. Could someone PM me some tips or tell what I need to do to change my situation? I am not looking for a hand out, (I will accept them though) but a simple solution to put a few bucks in the bank.

    I apologize for being confused on the subject. However, reading through this and other forums, there is a lot of fraud going on. Why is it not acceptable to get help? Could I have more feedback before I quit trying to outsource?

    hahaha, First I don't think Indians filling out offers is very effective, nor will it get you paid for very long.

    Second, I think it's a little high and mighty to say "there's a thin line between fraud and black hat seo".....Actually there is no line, they are both fraud.

    Black hat SEO cheats the system and steals money just like having someone do your CPA offers for you, and quite frankly, taking a little money away from million dollar advertisers is probably a little cleaner than destroying your hard working white hat SEO competitors with BH tactics since they are generally broke.

    I feel the same way you do and I appreciate a seasoned BHer giving there take on the situation. No hard feeling izm, but the reason I asked the question was to be informed. I read a lot of different post with different points/views. But when you said die I took that to heart :( Just kidding, everyone is entitled to their opinion.

    bigkee42 - Why not just clarify your situation for us and elaborate on what exactly it is you're seeking advice on. Outsourcing CPA offers to freelancers via freelance websites?

    Yes, I wanted to know if it would be wise or a waste of time to outsource a CPA offer to freelancers via freelance websites. I do not want to get into any gross illegal acts, but I would like to find different options to endorse my CPA offers. I am new to all of this, so I rather ask the veteran to teach me a little here and there to prosper.

    There are some "methods" to getting this accomplished (via these type of websites) and it can bring in a nice chunk of change. It is VERY short term, and the odds of getting canned by the aff network is about 75-80%. I know or a certain tactic that DOES work, but needs some more work on the stealth aspect of it...

    But, if your insistent on outsourcing, why don't you go to people more familiar to you and that you know? (hint). Some of the trial offers that only charge '$x' and you receive '$15-20' is something to look in to...may work better with the technique(s) you are thinking about.

    Why keep coming back to it then? Seriously everything you have said in this thread has been completely unnecessary, what are you just trying to get your post count up :twitch:

    OP, Im sorry, Im still not understanding what you are saying, are you STRICTLY trying to outsource your CPA offers, or are you asking for other ways to make CPA work? Something you may be interested in is AffiliateTrades.com, you need an invite, but basically its an cpa offer swap.

    Hey bigkee42,

    I have some friends that do quite well with promoting CPA offers and they don't resort to unethical tactics, like getting phony signups just to earn commissions.

    If you do things right, you could earn a good income from CPA. If you concentrated your efforts into putting your offers in front of the right people that actually sign up because they're interested in the offer, you'll develop a good long term business relationship with the companies that pay you for those leads.

    If you go down the dark road, you may make a quick few dollars, but it won't last. Once the CPA companies catch on to your questionable methods, they'll cancel your account and you'll probably lose any payments due.

    Instead of cheating, do it the right way and make money over the long term, instead of just a quick, temporary few dollars.

    You mentioned that you did some PPC but it was expensive. How would you feel if someone had your PPC ads showing on their adsense site and had a bunch of 'freelancers' clicking those ads so they could earn AdSense commissions from Google - at your expense? Don't you think the CPA companies would feel that way too?

    If you need ideas about how to make money with CPA, there's an excellent method outlined in another thread on this forum - here's the link - hxxp://www*blackhatworld*com/blackhat-seo/making-money/2343-how-make-1000-day-exploiting-youtube*html

    Why not get off your ass and learn how to make PPC profitable for you? Sure it's a learning curve but there are some people out there that bust their ass to help people specifically with PPC to CPA.

    Self promotion. Slap me:p

    Outsourcing cpa offers to surfjunkydotcom is not a bad idea (hint)
