Few beginner questions about CPA

Hello all,

My name is Goran and I'm from Croatia (Europe), 26 years old.

I'm interested in promoting CPA offers but I would really appreciate if you guys can answer to my beginner questions before I even start.

I have watched some courses and tutorials about promoting CPA offers so I have basic understanding how this works but there are some things I would like to ask.

1) I have initial budget of $1000, I've heard that is a minimum to start. Do I have to have $1000 every month or that's the budget I can continue to work with?

2) If you are promoting for example dating offers and you manage to make profitable campaign, and that offer dies at some point, can you apply the same (or similar) settings for some other dating offer, or you need to test everything from the beginning in order to make a new campaign in the same niche profitable?

3) How often offers die and what to do when you have running campaign and offer dies in the meantime?

4) I can see that many people are earning $50/day. What is the average amount of dollars they need to spend that day to achieve earnings of $50? I know it may vary a lot, but if you can tell me approximate amount?

5) If you manage to make some campaign profitable, and you want to scale it up, how can you know you will get the same result again?

6) Is it difficult to make $50 per day? :)

Thank you very much in advance for your answers.

Hello Goran, first of all you should know difference between incentive and non-incentive CPA marketing.

Incentive CPA - When you offer some valuable content to your visitors and you force them to complete an offer to gain access to that digital content you are offering. (You can use monetization tools from your network such as content/link/file/video locker)

Non-incentive CPA - It`s what you have mentioned, promoting an offer directly to people who are interested in that offer. People are usually promoting direct offers using paid traffic sources as you said, but for sure you will need bigger budget then those 1000$.

- This forum is mainly for incent CPA, means you can get a lot of info to get started. I would suggest you to save more money to start with paid traffic, why not to do some content locking to make passive income stream from it? Once you have enough passive income, you can move to the next step. You will need more than just a testing budget, also be prepared that it is possible that you will make close to nothing in revenue in the start while you don`t gain more experience.

1)
- 1000$ is okay to get started to buy some data, but don`t forget that you have some additional monthly costs like tracker(Voluum,iMobitrax), dedicated server,etc. Don`t foget you are competiting with guys who are investing that amount daily to get high volume.

2)
Try to run it as your offer you were running, obviously you will have to test it from the beginning If you can`t make it profitable after some time. Also your best bet would be to ask your affiliate manager what creatives work the best for your offer.

3)
Advertiser can pause that offer on your network, can blacklist you on the offer If he is not happy with traffic quality. If that happens, ask your affiliate manager for similar offer in the same vertical or you can find out what other network has that offer.

4)
It`s totally depends on experience, budget or the offer you are running. You only see what those people generate in revenue but you don`t know their costs.

5)
You will be able to recognize it after you gained some experience, scaling is not an easy task at all.

6)
"You might not even make $3,500 in your first year. However, if you work at it and keep focused you can be successful."

1) As you said you are a beginner to CPA, I wouldn't advise you to invest money before you've learned the basic stuff yet. The only thing you should spend money on at start is a domain, host and a website (if you can't code it urself). Also there's alot of people giving away landing pages for free that you can use. Start there, earn your first $$ and then move to more advanced methods.

2) Depends from network to network. Talk with the affiliate manager on the network you decide to use, he'll give you a 100x times better answer than any of us here.

3) Most networks will tell you on the website if an offer has expired and what new offers they've added. Some offers gets paused sometimes (because of several reasons, ex: budget, low quality traffic etc). I haven't had any problems with this. Talk to your affiliate manager if you feel unsecure.

4) If you know how to code your own website (or find an already made landing page for free), get free hosting and a free domain. Then you can make $50/day without any investment, remember that you'll have to get the traffic on your own aswell, which can be a pain in the ass in the beginning when you dont know how to do it & don't invest any money.

5) Trial and error. You won't get ANY better results then trying it yourself first and find out what's working best for you. When you've found out what works best with you and what you would want to scale, just scale and try. If it doesn't work out for you after that, you got experience about it & know what to do and what not to do the next time.

6) Depends really on how quick you learn new things, if you take ACTION (most important part), if you get lazy and work 2 hours/day and then play computer games or using facebook at the same time you are working.
Difference between the guys that earns the most is that they know what they are doing with their time. "Everyone has time, what you do with your time, is only up to you."
Read & learn - take action - trial and error - results - REVERSE AND REPEAT. You will never be successfull in ANYTHING if you dont follow these steps.

Thank you so much guys for your answers. I really appropriate it.

I can conclude that I'm nowhere near ready to dive into CPA stuff then.

I didn't knew what content locking is so I found what that means. If I do that, I'm going to need traffic anyway, so I need to invest in paid traffic if I wan't to see some results right? Or you have something else on your mind?

Do you have any recommendations what should be my starting point, course, tutorial or anything on the topic of content locking, so I have basic understanding how it works so I can search the forum more efficiently?

Thank you in advance.

Actually I found this thread cpaelites.com/Thread-VIDEO-Content-Locking-Webinars which seems good starting point. But please do let me know if you have any other recommendations.

Thanks

I would say it would be the best to start with free traffic sources.
Some of them could be YouTube, SEO(Ranking on Google), Forums, Social Websites and such. You could try paid traffic aswell with a little to no deposit amount because if you don't know what you're doing you could end up wasting all the money without getting a conversion. You need to test a lot for paid traffic. You can find a lot of guides on here or even on google on how to use content lock.

$1000 is already big for an investment. the question is what traffic do you want to invest it in? SEO? FB ads? etc. etc. The capitals are much different on every traffic types.

He is talking about paid traffic - PPC/PPV/Media Buying and 1K$ is not much money to be honest, he can burn it easily. 2K$ should be enough to buying some data, more testing budget you have there are more chances that you will make your campaign profitable.

Thank you guys for helping me, I appreciate your answers.

Maybe I should start with some free traffic sources as komplexed said.
Although I would rather pay for traffic but maybe I should wait to gain some experience first not to drain my money fast.

The thing is I'm really not good with with driving free traffic. I do know some basic SEO stuff and how it works, read quite few articles about it but I don't think I'm gonna be able to rank websites in niches that are competitive enough for content locking. I might try though...
Or do you have any suggestion for reliable paid and not too expensive SEO services?

I think I could do FB and other social networks. That seems like a good option for me. Maybe I can focus only on this traffic source as I heard that it's good to master once traffic source at the time, test everything and see what is working the best?

Regarding to the youtube, unfortunately that's my biggest disadvantage as my spoken English is very limited and I'm kind of introvert person so I really don't like recording myself. Is there any other way to leverage the power of youtube?

Thanks
