    Hey guys!

    The bulk of my time is spent managing my amazon affiliate websites but ive been looking take on a project on the side. After recently being accepted into Maxbounty, I have decided to give bing ads PPC a crack. After spending the afternoon researching and reading, i've decided to target the older demographic which I hear works best with bing. The four cpa offers are geared towards the older crowd and are all pay per lead email converts. Right now im trying to build a landing page (which i'm struggling really hard with btw). My question and the purpose of this thread:

    1. Is their money to be made with PPC and Cpa offers in 2016? Do they work best with pay per sale or pay per lead type offers?

    2. Any good resources when it comes to making landing pages? I was looking up fiverr gigs but majority of them look like trash.

    Thanks guys

    1. Yes. Pay per lead convert better since theres a lower barrier of entry. Pay per sale can be lucrative but theres a ton of testing to be done up front (which requires quite a big budget).

    2. Use a landing page plugin. Instabuilder, profit builder etc. theres so many. Theres no reason why anyone should struggle to build a landing page in 2016, theres ton of tools available.

    Whatever you do, make sure you are using a tracker to see which keywords are converting, then you can pause the ones that are losing you money :)

    I have seen people earn $5,000 or more a day with CPA+PPC. I tried it once and made a ROI of 500% daily until my Facebook ad account got banned, only tried Pay per lead.

    There is always the testing and failing part though, so you better have a good budget for it.

    1. Yes. Both.
    2. I use WP Profit Builder (keep your landing pages simple, for best conversions IMO), because of the cool animations and easy integration.
    This. This. And more this. I'm using ClickMagick for my tracking needs, and it does the job, nicely. I've used Voluum in the past, which was also great. Either would work, but they do cost money to use. This investment is a MUST! Search for free tracking solutions, as I'm sure some may exist. I just posted what works for me. Hope that helps.

    This is why I love this fucking forum, thanks a ton guys! Really Appreciate it! I have the resources needed now to start this project of mine. Forgive me if this sound really noobish but when building the Landing Page, should it redirect to the offer page where the email lead is or does landing page I create have the actual offer inside it. For example:

    My Landing page at mydomain.com------->CPA PPL Offer

    or

    My Landing Page with the CPA Email Submit form embedded into my LP for the customer to fill out.

    I ask because I notice that the offers at maxbounty have "preview landing Page" which made me do a double take.

    Thanks again guys.

    There is money to be made in 2016, there is
    Actually you have done a good thing choosing Bing as a traffic source for those offers, and the demographics also suits the offers...and yes there is money to be made with PPC + CPS offers in 2016 and beyond, that's what I feel....

    I suppose either could work if you do it right. I allow my landing page to capture their email (for me to have access to in the future), and then I redirect them to a thank you page, which lets them know to check their email AND soft sells the offer I'm promoting. Once they click the button below or however I word it, that button click will take them to the CPA landing page.

    No problem OP, glad to help :)

    As for your question - I like keeping things simple. So I either do:

    1) Landing page mydomain.com ---> CPA offer

    2) Landjing page to capture emails ---> CPA offer

    There's no need for a thank you page, you can set your "Thank you page" as the CPA offer url (make sure you use your unique affiliate url though, to get credit).

    So which one should you use? Well that depends on many things:

    1) Are the offers you selected related to each other? If so, use method 2, you will get a better ROI in the long run

    2) Are there ways to monetize the subscribers if you choose method 2? If not, method 1 will do just fine.

    3) If the offers are unrelated to each other, are they all pay per sale? If so, you will have to use method 2 again, to be able to get them to convert via email

    In other words, only use method 1 if you only care about making money upfront and/or theres no way of monetizing subscribers further.

    Hope it helps, I have done CPA before so I know quite a bit about it :)
