I am new in the whole IM area, and definatly new to BHW, but I have done research. I think the most profitable, entry level experience is through CPA offers. But I have a few questions about them. I have read the FAQ's, read articles, and searched, maybe not vehemently, but couldnt find the answers. I have just a few questions Keep in mind, I am new and some questions might be a duh answer, but I don't know and can't find them so..yea. 1. What exactly is a legit, good, conversion rate. Say out of 1,000 visitors that click your offer, view it, whatever. I would think that a incentived offer would convert more than an unincentived offer, probaly like 800/1000 compared to 600/1000? Is that a reasonable guess? 2. What does an average CPA completion pay? I would think 1 or 2 cent for an email and zipcode? Maybe 7 or 8 cent for a full name address zip email etc. But what does the CPA expect with this, its basically hit or miss. 3. Running off of question 2, what does a CPA expect. Say I get 800/1000 to do the action. Now ive made $64 bucks. The CPA has to convert or sell the list or whatever for more than $64. That means out of 800 people, say they make 5 bucks a person for a sell. They have to sell 15 people just to get there money back. 4. Now my main question. Does it matter what kind of traffic I generate to complete the leads, as long as it is legit traffic? I plan to make people complete the offer by password protecting a file they want and making them do an offer to get it. Is this frowned upon? As long as the offer gets completed and they sell, do they care? Say they pay me 8 cent for the set of info, 800 sets, thats $64 they spent. Now if they only profit $2 per person that converts, they need a conversion rate of less that 6% to make a profit. So does it matter how I get people to do it, as long as they do it? If my ideas and assumptions are completly off please call me on it. And if you read the whole thing make a response, something, even if its just GTFO BHW. Thanks.
