    Just Curious,

    I have gone through the entire Zero Friction Course....both the PDF's and the videos and it is a pretty good course overall.

    My question is ....In the examples of actual PPC and Media campaign implementation, it just all seems so easy and to good to be true??

    In other words, pick a Forclosure offer from a network, load a bunch of targeted keywords into MSN, bid $1.00 a click and send the traffic to the provided landing page and "make a living" of $4K to $10K in profit per month from this one campaign???

    Maybe I am missing something but I just can't believe that every PPC campaign, Media Buy and Ad placed on MySpace for a popular offer is wildly profitable, even with amazing keyword targeting and great copy?

    The text on one example claims they made $50K in 2 months with 1 tooth whiting landing page?

    What am I missing here? Is CPA marketing really that easy?

    It's not as simple as plugging in keywords and such, you still need to optimize and split-test. You need to spend money to attain data, which in turn you use to better your campaigns. The other day I had to blow through $100 before I started seeing profit...sometimes you spend less and sometimes you spend a lot more. Seems like they're showing you the gist of it, but not really going into details about research and optimization?

    As for the $50k in 2 months isn't hard to attain using PPC. CPA marketing has huge huge earnings potential, but I wouldn't say it's really easy to get to that earning mark.

    Thanks for your input. I have studied all the courses out there on CPA mktg and recently attended Ad tech in NYC so I am well aware of all the options out there with which to promote CPA offers via PPC, Media Buys, Social networking and Opt-In email list rental.....however, I believe as you say that you really do need a detailed, extensive, very targeted list of keywords if you are going to be successful with PPC.

    So, to start, I was going to engage in Media Buys however, I have heard allot of negatives about the Ad Brites of the world with regard to click fraud and the like. There are many Ad Buying "Networks" ...but again here the offers really have to be lazer targeted to the audience and the average epc's need to be pretty high to see a return on investment if you are paying high cpm's for impressions.

    I guess in a nutshell, Im just trying to figure out the best strategy or approach to utilize in order to simplify the process and get profitable as quickly as possible.....

    I guess there is no easy answer ...its all just testing and trial and error?


    BTW...on the 50K in profit in 2 months....what they are failing to tell you is that they probably had ad spend on PPC of $48K...haha....hell, maybe the spend was $52K??

    Do they show you proof they made 50k or is it like their sales page where you can see their edited screenshot for their EPC that has a red line under the word. All fake. Sure there are many people making a killing with CPA and PPC but I think their main source of income is selling the course. It is so heavily marketed on Twitter.

    No it is actually in the members area where they are sharing the landing page with the members that they simply state that they made $50K with the lander ...showing no proof of this.

    I have the link to the members area...PM me if you want it

    Is this the upsell to ZFM where u get to copy and paste their ads? Do they tell u their cost for the ad? I almost purchased it but was very leery and decided against it.
    I enjoyed the course and it told u just enough to get you in trouble, but they did not reveal all you have to learn by testing and retesting and failing and trying again and again until u get it right.

    But, i would not copy their ads because if you did not follow what they did exactly to the "T" and changed one tiny little iota, you can lose your ass.

    do they show you every type of ad? Like ppc ads, media buys, my space, msn, i do not believe i saw ppv in the list.

    Also applied to cpabullet weeks ago and never got a reply back from them. Do they really exist and did you apply there.

    Hey everyone...this is my first post, so please bear with me. Just to piggy back off of "webgal", I have also applied to CPA Bullet as well, which is an affiliate network ZFM mentions in it's course. However, like "webgal", I too haven't rec'd any type of call or email letting me know the status of my application. Also, calling them gets me to an unattended voicemail. If anyone has any info they can share on this network, that would be great.

    Also, in reference to ZFM, I have watched most of the videos and that got me excited and ready to go with CPA. However, after some trial and error campains, there is definitely some intricate details left out of the course as far as what to watch out for on the sites mentioned such as my (space), adbr**e and b*ys*llads. Since I took a HUGE loss very quickly, I'm trying to get more in depth and so far, by using PPCFormula2.0, it seems like the better course to go with. More information and more detail...that can be found by searching around on this site as well. Just my opinion though guys. Take care.

    I've tried to apply to CPAbullet a few month ago..
    Till now I haven't got any email or call regarding my application..
    I've tried to send them an email but no reply..
    Not a good network to start with I guess.

    CPA Marketing isn't that easy as it seems. Yes you can make lots of money by combining CPA and PPC but you need find profitable keywords that really convert.

    Some people get lucky and find their combination early and some go ahead and steal other people's keywords. Still, some don't find profitable keywords and lose their shirt in the PPC process. It is the game of keywords my friend :)

    If he claims you can make that much with msn ppc, think again.

    Traffic there is lower than in google adwords and yahoo....

    You REALLY need to find highly searched for terms and increase the overall number of your keywords.... compared to your adwords campaigns.

    Always target "buying" keywords or specific "product names"... piggyback on your direct competition, copy their winning campaigns that have been running for a long time.... and split test every f****g thing!

    Test and have patience to eliminate the bad ads, keywords, landing pages...etc. then you will gain momentum and have only the winning mix.

    i have never felt comfortable with what the owner of this product gives out.

    it all seems like basic advise he gives out, just re packs it all into different products.
