    I want to start getting into promoting CPA offers and was wondering what the best source of traffic is to send to them for conversions.

    I just bought an e-book that talks about using contextual advertising to drive traffic to your campaign. This could get kind of expensive and I was wondering if any other cheaper junk traffic was worth running like expired domain traffic or PPC on the content network.

    There are hundreds of types of CPA offers all with overlapping or different optimal sources. Too tough to give a general suggestion ...

    I was wondering more if cheap traffic is worth buying for CPA offers and if it will get you a return on your investment. You know like those sites that offer you 100,000 hits for $50. I know the only way to really know is test it out, but I was wondering if anybody has tried it.

    Test with adwords if you want PPC

    Blacklinks, most of the traffic that you get from those "$50 buys 100000 hits" programs is junk. In fact all of it is junk and you are unlikely to see any conversions.

    crsk8andsno56 rightly suggested that you stick with adwords if you want to buy ads for CPA offers. You might also want to give Yahoo marketing a shot.

    Its not easy to get CPA Offers to convert as a lot of users have caught on to the "Free iphone" offers on the web. I've never had success advertising with Banners with those offers.

    Junk traffic is often times not even good enough when you want nothing but impressions...

    I still have success with such offers.

    What you can do is stay away from tech savvy market...

    And yeah, iPhone is kind of old.... but there are other offers and new offers coming up with no scrub.

    Although, I believe it is not the offer that is important but where you market and how creative is your marketing ;)

    Phone my*space and tell them you are a major advertiser and would like to advertise on their homepage.

    In the mean time, sell you house, car, jewelry, and rob a bank.

    Add banner to my*space home page

    Buy bigger house

    Rinse

    Repeat

    YOu stole my super secret plan!

    Just ordered that stuff to play around a little bit.

    So form my point of view: take an offer, find a few 10 thousand relevant keywords, produce doorways
    profit?

    Sorry, but I think if you have quality traffic you also - or better - can use rev share models. So I also think exactly junk traffic is the right for cpa - especially if people have only to sign up for a profile or something like that, as you never will see them

    Depends on the offer you choose. There are so many ways to get traffic for cpa offers but the main ones are cpc try 2nd 3rd tier search engines other than google. CPM banner advertising. Co-reg. Also Email drops are huge you can make some money fast. Like within days on email drops targeting 5 million subscriber you can get .50cpm on some lists that convert run a list test of 1million and get 98%delievery gurantee and 3% open rate.

    I like the sound of the email drops. I've never tried that before. Do you have any suggestions of sources to try?
