    Hey Guys,

    I'm not 100% sure if this is the best place to post this, but I found one BHW member who posted the CPA project in his SIG located here:http://www.ezwares.info/CPAProject/index.php (not affiliate link or anything)

    The one thing is, I can't find where I found his sig and I completely forgot the name.

    Any reviews on this one or better yet if you can direct me to the person who owns the site it would be better.

    I'm interested but there is no contact information on his sales site. :)


    All the best,

    Catz

    What do you want to know about it? It's a small private community of members who fill out each others cpa offers.

    Oh ok, so its basically like affiliate trades, only a paid version of it? Ok, not worth it in my opinion then.

    Yeah basically, although since they pay they're more motivated then members of say affiliate trades and a few of them are earning $50-$100 a day there.

    As a member there for a while now, I have to say that it is worth it. People actually fill out the offers, unlike the other places there. The key is to have as many CPA Accounts as possible, and I have many.

    Also, just a side note: I have tripled several of my CPA Checks from the offers that I have posted there over the last 2 months or so. Again, you get out of it what you put in to it, and if you put a little work in to it, you will get more than your fair share out of it.

    It is definately not for LAZY people. It is a sharing community and if you are too stingy to help others, or too lazy to post an offer of your own occassionally, obviously you will not make as much! Common damned sense, but most people don't think like I do.

    Recommended, and a + in my book.

    It's unsustainable especially since it's paid. A content club is more sustainable...

    Not all offers require anyone to 'buy' anything.... if you look around at different CPA Companies, you will find a plentiful amount of offers that don't require you to send people to actually purchase anything.

    Actually, it seems to be more sustainable because of it. Would anyone neglect to go to some site if they Paid for it's content? I don't think so... makes me want to check it out more often, so I get my money's worth out of it. Like the old saying, "You get what you pay for."

    How many people are in it and what type of offer do they usually fill out? I'm just asking, plus I'm not from the US would that be a disadvantage?

    Been thinking of joining this one also, but I didn't have much success with affiliatetrades due to low activity. I think this program can work out if you cover your tracks well.

    At last count, over 320 from what I saw. Most of the offers are Single Page Offers, then Multi-Page Offers. Several members are not from the US - They use Proxies when needed. (ie. Hidemyass.com, etc...)

    There are a total of 325 members and there are lot of different offers you can fill out and post.

    Here's a screen shot:

    Not being in the US would be a bit of a disadvantage as you would only be able to complete other peoples offers by using a proxy.

    I'm obviously biased since I put so much work into my own CPA delivery system, but whether people fill the offers or not, this is not long term by any means.

    Affiliate Trades was infiltrated overnight by CPA networks, do you really think $39 a month will deter them from shutting down hundreds of fraudulent affiliates on the CPA project ? :)

    Beyond that the same people are filling the same information with no regard for authenticity. There are only so many networks and the duplicate leads and fake info are adding up quick.

    I should also point out AGAIN, that CPA networks are now considering lawsuits against those that are caught on these forums. Before they couldn't really do anything but take your commissions away, but now they have cold hard evidence that you are committing fraud and committing larceny. Even if offers allow incentivisation, this still breaks the terms of service, and since most of the offers promoted there, strictly prohibit incentivisation, you would be knowingly engaging in fraud.

    Not good. Just a helpful warning of whats to come.

    I think you meant "NOT" being in the US....

    There are many socks 4 and 5, along with secure proxies out there, all mentioned inside by the way.

    People have such short memories or just haven't been around the game long enough to realize how dumb this is.

    CPA were prevalent a few years ago, and then fake affiliates and cheaters ruined it. Companies and advertisers were losing money, so the model faded away. Now it is back and it's happening again.

    All things like this do is make it harder in the long run for the little guy.

    All those posts you see from people who can't get approved by a network? That's because networks are afraid to let smaller affiliates sign up fearing fraud.

    This kind of stuff is fraud, plain and simple. I signed up thru a sig link when the thing first opened and once I saw what is was I was out.

    Personal opinion- it appeals to lazy people. Those who can't make money with CPA because they don't want to do the work. It's not hard to make money with CPA, some people are jsut lazy.

    I agree with you 100% Punn, this isn't a real business model and should not be used as an income source period. I have an acocunt there (I was given it for free) and most of it's members aren't actually doing anything anyway. Aside from that, the chances of getting caught are increasing ever day as this community becomes more and more public. Soon there will be cpa managers who sign up and they will find and cancel your accounts.

    Point taken. Yes, I'm at the point where I'm getting a few thousand each month and I think I just need to expand on my niches and offers and everything will be better.
