    Hey guys.

    I want to get started into CPA and would like to know the best ways to do so.

    I have $200 to invest and was thinking about getting coaching from someone reputable. But is it worth it?

    What would be some better solutions and ways to start/invest my money.

    When I did try a while back I always got denied by CPA companies because of the site I put down. So maybe putting some money into getting a good site made.

    So yea what would be my best option to get started? I was thinking about Pofeckers coaching. For $200 he will help me get accepted into a few different networks and show me how to make $50ish a day. This seems pretty reasonable but because he is a pretty busy guy. He doesn't respond to my PM's that quickly.

    Would it be better to invest my $200 somewhere else than CPA? Or would it be a good start. All advice is appreciated.

    You can invest $200 in for example google adwords to drive traffc to a email optin page where u build an email list in a niche.

    You could invest in coaching... or you could use the forum as a coach!

    I disagree with nossie, don't get into Adwords until you're really experienced. It's a wonderful way to lose cash quickly.

    I agree with shade. Depending on the market, adwords will suck up that $200 in less than a day... There are plenty of tutorials on CPA here and on the web, dont spend it on coaching when you can coach yourself.

    The best thing to do with that $200 is get some domains purchased to set up your CPA offer landing pages. But DONT spend it on coaching... Use your resources and this forum is a great start

    Adwords isnt scary at all. As long as you remember to limit the daily budget and test on the small scale first.

    My advice is to split your money into 2... $100 and $100...
    From what I see, it seems that you do not have a lot of money to start and therefore I have to advice you AGAINST getting a coaching until you have earned yourself some money...I also advice AGAINST getting into any membership site, you will likely be overwhelmed by the wealth of information and you will likely froze into inaction...

    The first $100 is to be spent on domain, hosting, article buying (SEO optimized for the offer), maybe some design for your website... You have to decide what offer you want to do first before you take this first advice... In a sentence, you will optimizing this 1 website for 1 offer...

    The second $100 is to be spent on advertising... Go to the BST section of BHW particularly services for sale, you can get a lot of backlinking service for $100... This way you can get yourself a stream of steady visitor... When you are new, don't go with adwords... I reserve adwords only when you have a steady income...

    Also learn to get free traffic, there are TONS of these methods in BHW (youtube, craiglist, social bookmarking, etc.)... I do not want to point any particular thread...

    Get your next $200 and do as I have adviced over and over until you reach your desired income level...
