    Hi all,

    I am pretty new to IM and after hours of reading on this site i would like to start off with CPA.
    I have been accepted into a couple already and would like to know what the best starting point would be? I have read lots as I say but am still not sure where to start ie, CPA and Youtube, CPA & PPC, etc I would like to start with PPC but funds are low as I have lost my job hence giving this a go! If I went down the CPA Youtube route what would be the best way to get traffic to the videos or should I just do lots of videos with different keywords etc promoting the same product?
    If I went down the PPC route do you have any suggestions on what converts well? is there a best time of day to place the adds etc.
    I don't want spoon feeding I just need pointing in the right direction as I cant afford to lose money at the moment.

    Many Thanks

    Start off with social media traffic from sites like facebook, twitter, youtube etc because its free and you can understand how to drive more traffic over time. Then you can buy traffic from other places.

    Exactly what I was going to say.
    Keep your expenses low and concentrate on free methods.
    In my opinion, YouTube is a good start as it is comparatively easy and can yield great and quick results.

    Yes, social traffic is the best for startups. But keep in mind one thing, ALWAYS focus on one method only. Don't try to drive traffic through Youtube, Facebook, Instagram, etc , all together.

    If you think it's easier to create a fanpage and promote it, DO IT, if you think it's easier to upload videos daily - DO IT. But don't do more things at the same time because you won't stay focused.

    After some months when you have a steady income you can start to scale up with other methods too.

    Good luck buddy.

    Make sure to connect them somehow together, it will boost the traffic higher.
