    I read all the CPA related posts (including the Sticky posts) on how to get approved, etc. I now need few suggestions -

    Using Sub-domains for CPA signups

    Can I make a Website on free subdomain (like .co.cc or .blogspot.com or .wordpress.com) and use it to sign up in CPA sites? I already have a blog at blogger (cyberdrop.blogspot.com) which I used to sign up at Max Bounty and Neverblue. They both rejected me. Max Bounty told me that my site's content quality is good but then they don't have any products that would suit my blog & hence they are rejecting my application. I asked them back what kind of site are they looking for then? NO reply from them.

    Joining CPA without websites

    I am in India and I am not scared to talk over the phone but then I don't know what I would say as my traffic source if it's not website. I read in this forum that we can say PPC, Adwords as the reason but I am zero in those field and hence I don't know how far I can pretend as if I know what I am talking about.

    If I were to apply with them again, what kind of site should I create? I will get it ready and give it a second shot! I'm really hoping to enter CPA and start off my earnings with e-mail or zip signups. I am no good at e-whoring Lol However, I can manage to get people sign up.

    Any sensible suggestions, please?

    EDIT: Also, from what I have read in this forum, having a higher PR or huge traffic (I get only 20 unique visitors per day to my blog) is not really needed to get approved by CPA. Because we can say that I am in the process of promoting it. My query is - Do they ask you how did you bring in so much traffic with just 20 unique visitors a day kind of questions during the payout?

    Hey, getting approved to CPA networks when promoting via websites is pretty hard, because you should stick to the niche of your blog for offers, if you start promoting a load of random offers and your saying the traffic is coming from your website, when it's obviously not, the CPA network are going to look into it.

    The best way to get approved into a CPA network is simply say. "I promote via PPC, using companies such as AdBrite, Facebook advertising and sometimes Google Adwords", then they will ask you how much you invest in PPC, then simply say "Depending on how well the offer is converting for me, I invest between $1000 and $5000 a week in PPC".

    If you say the above, you won't need a website, your better of making the application, then calling the network within seconds to say the above and get your interview done, so you know what your saying and your prepared.

    Thanks Alex for your reply. I better read and gain some knowledge on PPC now. No matter whether I promote it through PPC or pay others to do stuff or by some BH methods, I should atleast be confident when I talk about PPC. The thing is I talk crap & sound like a lamer when I talk about something I don't know. So, yeah I better gain some knowledge on PPC.

    Still a good idea to know what you're talking about, especially if you're going to lie and say you do it, so excellent thinking on your part twisted. Give our PPC forums a look over and if you want to make your life easier, focus on one PPC platform such as Adwords and research about it until you're confident with your knowledge of it (should take 1-2 hours at most if you just want to fool the AM.)

    The reason I say Adwords is because it's very popular among affiliates and it's something that you can find a lot of knowledge about so you don't have to do too much digging. You can also say you're part of Gauher Chaudry's PPCF group and that you're learning from them...they're somewhat known in the industry so I'd say that's a good reference.

    i always just use my 'online consultant' company website when applying and say i promote via the content network.

    i also copy paste my 'resume' into the comment area on all my applications, so when they call, there really isn't much to ask since every detail of my IM experience is already included with my application.. the phone calls never lasted more than 5 min and i've been accepted to over 30 networks using this simple method.. good luck!
