    Hey guys, I am almost new and I feel like a small-time punk in the CPA game and I need some directions to go further. I have a freebie website which brings me about 100 USD/day - I drive my traffic to email/zip submits. In the other thread here I`ve read that organic traffic for CPA is for chumps and it got me thinking that I need to change my strategy.

    So my questions are: what can I basically do with the 'freebie' traffic email - isn`t it hard to monetize people who are not looking to buy anything?

    Please recommend me some good material to read and learn about doing CPA with ads cause I did not manage to find a good one. I`ve gathered some funds to start trying it. Thanks a lot.

    What kind of rubbish is that? Organic traffic is awesome if it works for you. Keep it up and work on getting more of it.

    The problem is not that you are not thinking right. Is just that you can just get so much organic traffic that its not scalable unless you target different keywords.

    For your niche i suggest scaling up to atleast 300-500 a day by spamming other sources of traffic. You need a system where you can scale up , and if you are already pushing zip email submits then it shouldn't be hard to push it through other sources of income.

    I tend to go on niches and areas where my traffic source is enough to maintain a 1-5k a day , organic traffic isnt possible unless you target multiple keywords, while other sources of income is as easy as increasing input.

    Where did you find e-mail submits that convert? I gave up on those. Feel free to PM me a link to that CPA network, I'll sign up under you.

    As for your question: $100/day may not be bad depending on what your traffic looks like. But yeah it's hard to monetize freebies. A friend of mine had some success with penny auctions but it might not be as good as what you are pulling now.

    Edit to add: If you're in the mood to go apeturd, you could basically create your own e-mail/zip submit offers, exactly like the ones you are promoting and then when they put in their information and click through towards the final page they will inevitably sign up for other offers, etc and you could probably pull a lot more cash. The problem is it will require a lot of coding and you've got to make sure that the merchants/network on the other end are okay with you pre-populating offers etc. Just a thought.

    I read it here http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/cpa/311398-damn-fed-up-cpa-money-making.html#post2828484 and It looks true - you can make way more money when working with PPV/Media buys if you know what you are doing. I want to start learning it and I am looking for some blueprint or something like that.

    Thanks for the tips. I`ll pm you a link.

    Oh sure, but those are two different animals and you can have great success with both. Anyways, paid methods are all about trying. Find an offer, throw some traffic at it, if it converts you optimize it if it does not, you move on to the next offer. It takes time and money to find a profitable offer. Sometime you can find one quickly, sometime you can go through 100 offers with no luck. You can always start by asking your affiliate manager for a list of good offers for PPC/PPV but they will usually just give you the same list that they give everyone or a list of top converting offers. PPV, Media and PPC are all pretty different and will take some getting use to. Do you have access to the vault? It's invite only but if you are in you can search for PPC blueprints and pick some course with the highest rating.

    media buys aren't easy games. It takes awhile before you can make real profit from it plus you need $10K for initial investment before you can see it really works. If you are willing to put your money at risk, go for it. The investment might worth it. I didnt properly tried though so cant say much about it.
