    Try different techniques and methods, its not that hard. For me, cpa is the easiest money.

    But if its not for you then you should go back to the thing where you were good...

    I hear you Scarlet Pimp, unless you are tricking people with some scam apartments or credit scores, nobody voluntarily enters their email address into a CPA for cause they know they will get spammed forever.

    Nobody on BHW has ever put forth an up and up strategy for CPA. They always have a scam with it and to me thats not a business model.

    PPC to CPA = long term business model with long term high profit earnings... without tricking a soul.

    Remember, there's a lot more to CPA than just email and zip submits. ;)

    Hey Tygrus, I agree with you 100% that way too many people on this forum get caught up in trying to "game" the CPA space. IMHO it's extremely short-sighted and only serves in hurting the whole CPA industry.

    Here's a few detailed posts I made regarding how I manage my long term whitehat campaigns..

    How are you driving traffic? It sounds like you don't have enough traffic volume to have the number of consumers you'de need to drive and find profits. Have you tried other offer types like trials/rebills because that's where the real money is in CPA in IMO.

    Btw, I wanted to thank you for all of your shares in the lounge. My "coffee breaks" during my workdays are spent reading a lot them.

    i was using adwords (til they canned my account) to drive traffic. i got some visitors but no takers. if they wanted the ebook then they'd have to click a codebreaker link and fill in their info.

    i offered visa cards and restaurant discount cards. dunno anything about trials/rebills... tell me more about this...

    Like redtide said, a lot of how much money you make is a reflection of how effectively you are marketing. Even if you weren't doing CPA, as you say CPA "isn't for you," if you can't market whatever it is you are doing, whether it's a gaming forum or a local business, you won't get traffic or conversions.

    Yesterday I bought a $5.95 Facebook coupon ($50 value) and started up an ad. As of now, I've made a total of $11.15 from 38 visits (8 leads, 21% conversion), and I've set my campaign to expire in 5 more days, not including today. So it really is how you market it.

    Umm... trials/rebills are the offers all CPA networks have that pay much more per lead ($10 - $100+) than email/zip submits but typically require a CC submit from the consumer. ;)

    Don't kill the NB account. They are one of the 'legit' networks. You'll find other ways
