    Everyone talks about promoting CPA offers, email submits and locking content with locker. No one talks about traffic :)

    With about 50+ decent and legit cpa networks around, its really easy to get accepted into a few, if you are among the ones who didnt get accepted, I suggest reading the useful "stickies".

    I'm starting this thread where people can discuss about traffic concepts. This thread doesn't ask or encourage you to tell your traffic methods because -

    1. Sooner or later methods die
    2. No one want to kill their cash cow

    What most people rarely discuss is the concepts that can bring traffic. If you don't have any traffic, you'll never make money.

    Let's discuss about traffic concepts, ideas. Really, it will help. Sharing ideas won't hurt you in any ways as long as your not revealing your methods.

    Let's discuss the following -

    1. Your main source of traffic (SEO/FB/YT/Twitter/Others)
    2. Stats
    3. How reliable is it in the long term
    4. Your experience and some valubale tips :)

    I'll start -

    I get my traffic from different sources, mainly YouTube and PPC. Nothing major yet but only about a thousand UVs a day resulting in $20-50 on an average day.

    I think, YouTube can be tricky, earlier, I used to think if 1 video makes you 5 cents a day 1k videos will make you $50 a day! Not true at all.

    YouTube is all about ranking high for your keywords. 1 high ranking video or viral video can make you $50 a day, and more, on the other hand, 1k videos can bring you 0.00$ a day.

    I think the trick is to balance between the quantity and the quality, if you can do 10 videos a day, on different topics that can interest masses then it could bring great earnings for you. Do your kw research, make vids (or copy from somewhere:D), Spread your vids on different accounts, Description link and annotations are very important! And Lastly, don't forget to use BH ways to improve video rankings by boosting views, ratings, few comments etc:)

    Thats about YouTube, Correct me if I'm wrong anywhere:) Your Turn Now!

    I think CL is a awesome traffic provider,you just need to get around their "security" =D,anyways so yeah,it gets 58,591,283 UV per month, now tell me is that isn't an awesome amount of traffic?, I'm currently making $20-30 from there,but I know I will make way more pretty soon. You just need to have fresh ideas and come out with a way of monetizing a section of it. People are pretty gullible...Enough Said!

    Note to OP: I'm currently trying to get my hands on to Youtube and know how to create good videos etc (Used to sell them on Fiverr, and currently selling them in a site that pays in Euro,it cost more than the dollar lol). I will like you to see some of my videos and, if possible have a chat with you and share ideas back and forward.

    Best regards.

    Yes, I've read some great CL success stories in past. Not sure if people are still doing good with CL.

    Regarding your Videos, sure, send me a PM, I'd like to see your vids:)

    Close to 70 Views to the thread and only 1 response? I'm assuming ppl are more interested in methods to make $$$ rather than sharing/learnin concepts:p

    All i can say is.. It´s quite easy if u have bots to run among with your methods.

    Best method is to make a custom bot for you, and only you...

    When u knew u are "Alone in the field" u know u can pump out cash from that site alone...

    So, making a custom bot from someone that can code one for you, 300-400$ .. Can make u 100X that amount in a month. =>

    Hi Ericsson, Speaking of bots, I have a program - win automation, you can make bots with it. It's pretty easy, try it out sometime.

    I made 1 for my youtube related work and its really nice. You don't need to have great programming knowledge, but atleast basics are required (loops, conditions, control flow)

    Bots can really really help a lot.

    As for me, I rely on SEO to get me traffic. The advantage of Search Engine traffic is that it can be really well targeted and convert very well.

    But, the disadvantage of SEO traffic is that it is unreliable. You have rankings today but you might lose them tomorrow. It is very unpredictable because it depends on a lot of things (200+ algorithm components)

    Over time, I have gotten a lot better at SEO and am able to rank for really competitive terms real fast. But, it still takes time and patience until you start to make some money.

    I want to try FB traffic. I have tried once before but failed miserably. I tried a JV with a FB marketer, last a month until his traffic source died. made some good cash very fast.

    Yeah, thats so true, So SEO traffic good until Google slaps your sites and they fall down to $0 a day but its pretty much reliable in comparison to other traffic sources. May be your sites can get slapped once in a while but that usually a slow process and you could make some good cash before that.

    FB + CPA has a LOT of potential. Recently CandyBar made a thread and posted his script that made him 18k in a single day!!!

    I'm trying to get into FB as well but that shit isn't easy.

    Drop me a PM sometime if you would like to outline a plan and work on FB together. As far as I know, FB traffic can only be built if you either do a JV or buy a hell of a lot status updates etc from sellers. Otherwise, if you try to build it up on your own, you wont go far and you will just burn yourself out.

    so many ways to get traffic.. i'm not worried.
    i am more concern about the landing page/ presell. what's best strategy for CPA , especially email/zip submit. simple design? add testimonial/proof ?

    btw, i use SEO for traffic. long term , highly targeted traffic .. it's still long to get page #1 but i'm cool. i have another eggs :)

    Ericcson,

    What exactly would the bot do? I'm not sure I understand, I'm not that familiar with bots but it sounds like I need to get familiar real quick.
