    I am currently in a job making ~$300 a week for social media management. Been seeing a lot of journeys regarding CPI/CPA are really inspirational, whether it be from facebook or instagram, that are making a lot of money.

    So... Advice

    Do you think I should stick with this stable job or go for CPI/CPA markerting?

    I don't see why one cannot do both? I am doing it...

    You better stick with CPA as there are a lot of materials available online when it comes to learning CPA. I never tried that CPI thing where you get pennies and the advertiser takes too long to pay affiliates.

    Is there a reason you can't do both?

    Kind of hard for someone to tell you what YOU should do in this situation, but here are a couple of huge questions you need to answer for yourself.

    Are you one who HAS TO HAVE stable income? Consider any responsibilities you might have. You know the answer, and it's a simple yes or no.

    Can you 'survive' if your CPI/CPA markerting plan takes a while to get to where you're expecting it to be. And by a while I mean at least twice as long as you're expecting it to take?

    Those are just a couple. I could hit you with a few dozen more REAL TALK questions but those two should get you thinking in the right direction.

    Good Luck with whichever direction you choose!

    Try both. After a while you'll discover yourself what you would prefer to do :)

    This depends on how much you need the money.

    I would highly recommend doing both until you realise whether you can do CPA. It's not easy...
