    Hey everyone I was wondering is there like a guide to on how to start your own CPA Network.

    How do you get the ads for your network and how would you make money off it.

    A video would be great.

    Ah I was in the same spot as you a while ago. It's not really easy to start a network. Most people would turn you down and say its so difficult to do, but if you look - they asked the same questions as well. I'll keep the name calling to myself.

    You need a lot of time on your hands. A while ago, CPAsaw Adam told me that he stayed up for 30 days without any efficient amount of sleep.

    I won't make a guide on how to start, but I studied it for about a month.

    You need to contact advertisers. I found some CPA networks and visited landing pages and looked on the bottom of the page. You could contact the advertiser.

    OR, do what every other new HasOffers network is doing and borrow CPA offers from bigger networks. I forget what this is called exactly.

    It's a really long process and it takes time. It truly takes research and true understanding on how everything works.

    You can do it, but you'll probably fail a lot and lose money at the start. Usually takes more than one person too. With networks on BHW, it's usually like 2-3 people that are owners and co-owners.

    Also, the owner of CPA infinity I believe OR it was someone else, had a good point a week ago. He said it costs a lot of startup money because of the platform. HasOffers costs quite a lot for the unlimited package. You can go with the lower package, but it only allows 10 offers. This is for a
    Dating website basically. This isn't for an actual affiliate network. Network you'd need the unlimited package which is like $1,000. Or, go ahead and find a developer that's willing to code your own. Haha. Which is at least $10,000.

    I had a trial account at HasOffers. A fairly good platform to say the least. I had a few offers but I didn't have the monthly payment for the HasOffers platform so I emailed the guy and paused my account until I got more advertisers. Cupid PLC was my only one. I guess it's not as easy as you think.

    take it from someone who used to own a CPA network, and was lucky enough to get bought out and walk away...you have NO idea what your getting into...especially asking questions like that.

    Here's a guy who teaches you how to do everything, I watched a few of the videos and they are pretty good. I did not purchase whatever he had to sell though.

    I don't think anyone is turning you down, but only helping you. It's difficult. I tried for months and I'm not doing it now. You need money to make it happen. I think that's all you really need... People said you need like $25,000 for the platform, months of testing - and pay your affiliates. You'll lose money at first and then a couple months, you'll gain.

    If you think you're up to it, no one can stop you. Look at current networks today. Find the problem with them. Fix the problem by offering something better and you'll gain affiliates.
    My word isn't much to people that run a network like zero-day and m0nster. I think that's his username.

    I have only been researching it for a few months like a year ago.

    don't go at it alone I'll say that much
    be prepaired for anything and everything to go wrong
    start up money is an issue but not the main one, time available is. I've worked at this 10+ hours a day for months now and don't really see it slowing down much. my partner has worked even more .

    if you have a good number of affiliates you can bring in but not a ton of business knowledge and time i'd suggest trying to just be an AM at another network you can trust

    If you have to ask for a guide, then you aren't ready for the responsibilities.

    Liquid Start-up Cash is one of the most important factors. If you do not have the start-up funds ready to flow to your affiliates before you get paid by the advertiser then GoodLuck. Quick payments to affiliates are necessary.

    What happens when advertiser doesn't pay you? Are you going to pay out your affiliates out of your own pocket?

    Are you ready to undertake this not as a full-time job, but as a lifestyle?

    I recommend you gain more experience first,

    To Your Success,


    Best,
    JR

    Dont bother starting a network unless you have exclusive offers that convert and enough cash and time before affiliates start to trust you.

    Not a good business model anymore your 5 years too late.

    If I was going to do it I'd go be an AM first. I personally don't believe it's as easy as it looks or as hard as people say it is, I mean if Tim or Vito can do it, I can surely fucking do it.

    That's my belief though. Belief is everything when you're trying to succeed at anything in life. Always remember that.

    Look at some of the dickwads in our society who are successful.

    If they can do it, I can most assuredly do it, and so can you.
