Tips for Running CPA Offers on Craigslist: Part 3


Previously we’ve seen some ways to get your ads on classified ad sites to stay there and also to make a maximum amount of money while minimizing problems. Here are some final tips on how you can run successful affiliate campaigns by using classified ad sites:

 

  • Look at the other ads

 

When you want to put ads on Craigslist or any other classified ads site, the first thing that you would need to do is to take a look for yourself about how all the other ads in the section look like. Look at the titles, the formatting as well as the wording used in the ads. Do people post pictures? Do they post contact information in the ad? What words or expressions are used more often? These are all things that will help your ad look normal and make it less likely to be flagged or reported as spam. Also, you should obviously avoid making any outrageous claims in your ad to draw attention to it such as “Get a free house!” or things like that. If you do, it would probably be flagged as spam very quickly.

 

  • Use a local IP

 

Classified ads sites such as Craiglist and Backpage are mainly designed for local people to post local offers. So if you post an ad in a city that is not yours, you will need to use an IP address that is located in the area that you are targeting. You might not need this for all the classified ads sites, however Craigslist is known to be very strict regarding this and your ads in many categories will not appear if the IP address that you are posting from is not local to the area. To solve this problem, there are various workarounds. You could use a proxy, or a VPN service that will give you an IP address in the area where you are intending to post your ad.

 

  • Don’t mislead people or make false promises

 

Selling something from a CPA offer is one thing. However, deliberately misleading people by making false promises is another. Examples of this would include: promising someone a job if they fill out a survey, telling someone they are approved for a mortgage if they get a free credit report from your offer, etc. With some creativity, there are quite a few ways that you can promote CPA offers on classified ads sites without promising people things that don’t exist.

 

  • Check the rules for the offer you are promoting

 

Many affiliate networks recognize that classified ads sites are an important source of traffic and are used by thousands of marketers. However, some may have specific rules as to what kind of ads can be posted, as well as the sites they can be posted on. On some offers, classified ad traffic may be banned altogether, while on some you are not allowed to direct link to the offer itself. In any case, make sure you check the terms of every offer you want to promote before starting a campaign.

Tips for Running CPA Offers on Craigslist: Part 2


Yesterday, we have seen some tips on how to reduce problems while advertising CPA offers on classified ads sites. You’ve seen some tips such as not using an autoresponder, not direct linking and also being creative in your ads. Here are some more tips for you which will help minimize instances of your ads being flagged or reported as spam:

 

  • Don’t use a sales copy as your reply

 

You’ve probably seen what a sales copy looks like. This is what you get to see whenever you get on the home page for any Clickbank product, or any other information product that is sold through other channels. Sales copies are cleverly worded with words that are of different sizes, fonts, underlined, etc. Sales copy writing is a million dollar industry, with professional copywriters charging thousands of dollars for a single sales page. Sounds profitable and useful, right? Well, it may be good for a website, but using a “sale copy” tactic in a reply to someone who replies to your ad, or even worse, in your ad itself is pretty much a guarantee that you will get flagged or reported as spam. Don’t do it. It’s just not worth the effort. Even if most people will not flag you, they will simply pass by your reply, as it will look plainly obvious that you are trying to sell them something or are getting them to sign up for something.

 

  • Personalize your reply

 

The person who replies to your ad has written the message themselves. You should too. Use their name in the message. Answer any questions or remarks that they have made in their reply. This will give the person who is reading your message more of an assurance that you are actually a real, human being and not some spam bot that is sending out automated messages to all those who reply.

 

  • Don’t include your link in the first message

 

This is another useful tactic in minimizing the amount of times that your ads will get flagged down. In your first email, you will basically acknowledge what the person said to you, answer any questions, add some more information and then ask them to confirm that they are still interested in what you have to offer them. While some marketers may think that making someone jump through hoops to get to the offer is bad and that it will reduce conversions, this is actually not the case.

 

Yes, there are some people who will flake and not reply to you. Try sending out another message asking them if they are still interested. If they don’t reply, just drop them. The same people who will bail out at this time will be the ones that wouldn’t sign up for your offer in the first place. Plus there are also those who like to play “Internet Sheriff” and reply to some ads, only to see if there will be a web link that looks like a CPA offer included in the message you send to them. If so, they will flag your ad or report it as “spam”.

Tips for Running CPA Offers on Craigslist: Part 1


Even though it may have gotten more difficult in recent times, it is still possible to use Craigslist (and other classified ads sites) to promote some CPA offers, and there are still many merchants and networks which allow this kind of promotion. While these tips work for Craigslist, they will obviously be good for any other similar classified ads site out there.

 

However, many people report having problems, such as getting their ads flagged within minutes, or having their ads not appearing. Here are some tips that will help you get the most out of classified ads sites when used with CPA campaigns.

 

  • Don’t direct link to a CPA offer

 

While this may seem pretty obvious, a lot of new marketers seem oblivious to the fact that if you put an affiliate link directly into your ad, you will get flagged down rapidly, or your ad will not appear at all. You basically have two ways that you can use to direct traffic from a classified ads site to an affiliate or CPA offer. Either you build your own landing page and register a domain for it, or you have people email you and then reply to them by email. The approach that you will use will vary depending on what you are promoting, but the second option seems to be the most popular and effective for the majority of CPA offers.

 

  • Don’t use an autoresponder

 

An autoresponder is an email feature which automatically sends a reply with a pre-formatted message to anyone who sends you an email. Autoresponders have their value and are in fact extremely useful for some types of marketing. However, for classified ads, they are not a tool that you can use. Whenever someone gets an automated response to an email that they’ve sent, it automatically shows that something “spammy” is going on. Therefore, you are highly likely to get your ad flagged as spam very quickly if you use an autoresponder. I know that replying to emails personally takes time, but this is something that needs to be done if you want to have success. The task could be outsourced very cheaply as well. If you have to use an autoresponder (not recommended and we will get into more reasons later on) at least use one which is on a delay of a few hours and does not reply to emails automatically as soon as they are received.

 

  • Be creative in your ads

 

There are certain words such as “make money online” which will get your ad flagged right away. Furthermore, avoid copy pasting ads that you saw in an e-book or in a forum post that details some money making method for Craigslist. These have a high tendency to get flagged right away, since chances are there are many other people who have used them before you. Therefore, the bottom line here is: the ad that you post needs to be creative.

What Types of Sites to Use a Content Locker On?

What Types of Sites to Use a Content Locker On?


Previous, we’ve talked about using a content locker to make some money from CPA offers. Basically a content locker is an application which lets you require that users fill out a CPA offer before they can access your content, hence the name “content locker”. However, many webmasters wonder as to exactly what kind of site this type of set up would be appropriate for. Those who want to build a website may also want some ideas as to what kind of content you can put on a website to make it work well with this CPA tool.

 

Obviously, if you have an e-commerce site or a site, using a content locker would be quite dumb, since you want to make buyers jump through as few hoops as possible before they could buy something from you. However, if you have a site that provides content for free, then using one might be a good choice. Here are some examples of sites where such a tool would work quite well:

 

  • Free video game / arcade sites

 

These are websites where people can come to play free online video games, usually games made in flash.

 

  • News portals

 

Sites where visitors come to read some news, which can be general or which can be specific to a certain niche. It is much better if the news focuses on a specific niche or industry, as this will increase the number of visitors that actually fill out the offer rather than just click out and go get what they want somewhere else. Remember, there are plenty of general news sites, in fact there are hundreds of them. However sites that offer updates on a specific niche are fewer in number.

 

  • Templates / graphics sites

 

There are a lot of people who search the web looking for free images they can put on their site, or some free website templates that they can use on it. This is a great way to monetize such a site.

 

  • Ebook download sites

 

If you created an e-book and want to monetize it without actually selling it, you can use a content locker to require the visitor to fill out a CPA offer, and make a few dollars for you, before they can access the download link to get their e-book.

 

Some Other Considerations

 

Of course, these are just some examples of websites where such a tool can be used. There are plenty of other things that you can offer on your site as well. The key element here is that all sites that are suitable to use a CPA gateway with provide some kind of free content to the user.

 

There is also something else that you can do to monetize your site and that is require a small PayPal donation of $1 or $2 to access all the content without having to complete an offer. Some users may not want to fill out an offer over fears that they will get spammed, etc. However many of them wouldn’t mind paying $1 or $2, especially if they think that what you have to offer will be useful to them.

Using a Content Locker for CPA

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Using a Content Locker for CPA


One of the ways to earn money by using CPA networks is by using a content locker, also called a gateway on your website. This is something that can be used with incentive offers to increase conversions. Now what exactly does a gateway do? The principle is very simple. When a user gets to your page, a content gateway will pop up, asking them to complete a CPA offer before they get access to the content presented. These offers are usually short email submits or mobile offers that pay around $1 to $2 a lead.

 

Is this better than simply having CPA text ads or banners on your site? Well, the answer is usually yes. Many people are used to seeing ad banners, especially the cheesy “Shoot X to get an iPhone” type of ads and will usually ignore them. However, with a content gateway, they will actually have to complete one offer before they get access to the content that they want. Sure, some of them will simply walk away and go to another website. However, some of the visitors will complete the offer, especially if they are really looking forward to seeing the content that is presented on your website.

 

Many of you may be thinking: sounds great! How do I set this up on my site? There are essentially two ways to do this: either you can sign up for a CPA network such as CPA Lead or Adscend Media, that offers CPA content locking gateways, or use a third party script with incentive offers from another network. Of course, the first would be much easier, as the script has already been designed by the CPA network and all you would need to do is to insert some pre formatted code on your website. If you do use a third party script with another network, make sure that you only do so with incentive offers. Also, discuss with your affiliate manager first to see if you are allowed to do so, to make sure that there are no restrictions on this type of marketing with the network that you are using.

 

One question that remains is: should you use this on your site at all? The answer here will vary. If you have a completely new website that you’ve just started sending traffic to, then this might be a good idea. However, on the other hand if you have an established site with plenty of regular visitors, you may want to think twice before using a content locker on it. This is because if you are already making a good amount of revenue from these visitors from “regular” CPA offers or pay per click ads, you might risk losing some of your regular traffic if these visitors don’t really like the idea of filling out a CPA offer to get to your content. But there is always a compromise, for example you can set up a “premium” section of your website that requires filling out a CPA offer to access. Or you could display the gateway only to random users, or after they have visited a certain amount of pages on your website.

Using Craigslist for Affiliate Marketing: What Not to Do

Using Craigslist for Affiliate Marketing: What Not to Do


There is a lot of talk in internet marketing communities about using traffic from Craigslist to publish affiliate or CPA offers. While it is possible to do so, there are certain practices to avoid. Here are some things not to do when using Craigslist.

 

  • Don’t use it for offers where it is not allowed

 

CPA networks are aware of the fact that some marketers use Craigslist. Some networks ban this type of promotion outright, some forbid it for certain offers, while certain allow it as long as you follow some rules set forth by them. If you do not want to get banned from the network and possible lose the earnings that you have made, you should comply with any rules that they have. When in doubt, contact your affiliate manager just to be sure.

 

  • Don’t simply put in your affiliate links and banners all over the place

 

Craigslist is mainly designed for local businesses and individuals to post ads and not a place to spam affiliate offers. Any blatant affiliate links and offers will be flagged down rather quickly by users of the site. Simply put, do not direct link from a Craigslist post to an affiliate offer. Your post will probably be gone within minutes anyways.

 

  • Don’t post in the wrong category just to get traffic

 

If you post an ad in a category that is irrelevant, it will get flagged down almost instantly. The bottom line is, keep your postings to categories where they are relevant if you want them to have any chance of staying up.

 

  • Don’t attempt to trick or mislead people

 

This is one of the biggest things not to do when using Craiglist. While it was quite popular with black hat marketers about 2 years ago, Craigslist, affiliate networks and merchants have all come down on this and took action to prevent it from happening.

 

Now, what exactly is “misleading” people? Some examples would be: posting a fake job offer, telling people that they got the job, but that they simply need to complete a biz opp offer to “verify their info”. Or putting up an ad for an apartment and then telling people that they need to pass a credit check, then sending them over to a credit report affiliate offer. One other trick that was popular consisted of offering people a job and then telling them to buy a video conferencing software from an affiliate offer as the “training” for the job would be done remotely. In all cases, this is misleading people, as the apartment or job that was promised to them simply does not exist.

 

If you do this, soon enough, somebody will complain to the merchant and say “Hey! You promised me a job if I signed up on your site! How come nothing happened?” and you will simply end up banned.

Is it Still Possible to use Craigslist to Make Money Online?

Is it Still Possible to use Craigslist to Make Money Online?


Craigslist is a popular and free online classified ads site. While it certainly isn’t as popular as say Google or Facebook, it is still one of the most popular sites on the internet, with millions of users from all around the world visiting it. This has given online marketers a lot of ideas on how to monetize all of this traffic. Unfortunately, Craigslist is not what it used to be when it comes to internet marketing and you have black hat marketers to thank for that. What some people did went far beyond just spamming CPA offers to downright lying to people such as promising them jobs or mortgages if they complete a CPA offer for a credit report or a biz opp. As a response to that, Craigslist has upped its security mechanism and has even posted warning in many of its sections that specifically mention affiliate marketing.

 

But this doesn’t mean that is is completely useless to online entrepreneurs. There are a few ways to use it for your online marketing efforts. Here are some of them:

 

  • Promoting your e-commerce site

 

If you have a website that sells merchandise, then you can still use Craigslist to promote it. For example, if you sell clothes or electronics in your online shop, then you can post an ad in the proper section of Craigslist and get some traffic to it that way. Make sure to post in the right section, or your ad will be flagged down rather quickly. Also, don’t post the same ad in different cities at the same time. While there is nothing wrong with a global e-commerce site posting ads in multiple cities, remember that Craigslist is not mainly aimed at internet marketers, but rather for small, local businesses to post ads in the city where they operate.

 

  • Providing services

 

If you offer some services that can be done over the internet, then you can use Craigslist to get some business too. For example, if you create websites for businesses and individuals, then you can put an ad in the right section to promote that. There are plenty of services that you can do over the internet and have your clients pay your by Paypal or another payment system. Some examples include: translation, writing, graphic design, flier/advertising design, promotional video creations and a whole lot more. If you want to appear more professional and therefore more trustworthy when providing these services, you can always create a simple “business” style website that gives details of what you do and your prices, as well as get a toll free phone number to get your clients to reach you. You can get one for a few dollars a month and then forward it to your cell phone, or just leave it to always go to voicemail. Here’s a tip to get more sales: put a special discount or coupon code in your ad and tell readers to mention it when they order.

Start Your Own Web Marketing Agency

Start Your Own Web Marketing Agency


We all know that running affiliate or CPA offers is a great way to bring in big money online. If you have been at it for a while, you have probably developed some useful internet marketing skills. If you want to make some fast cash, you can use these skills to your advantage by doing another type of marketing work: helping local businesses make their presence known online.

Note that this method is not something new or earth shaking. It has been discussed in many threads all over internet marketing forums. It has also been the topic of several informational products, some which sell for several hundred dollars. But you don’t really need these “super” products to do this. Some basic skills and resourcefulness are all that you would need.

To get started you will need the following:

Your own website and domain name – You don’t have to make it into a beautiful site filled with multimedia content (unless you can actually do this in a short amount of time). Just a regular site based on a free “business” template that is provided by many hosts will do.

A dedicated phone number. A toll free number would be great and can be obtained for less than $15 a month. Yes, you really need a phone number for your business. This will make it appear a lot more “professional” in the eyes of your clients and you will also appear more trustworthy in their eyes. If you are low on funds at the moment then there are plenty of free services online which give you a virtual phone number that you can use for an internet phone application and it also comes complete with voicemail.

Basic web design skills. You don’t need to be an expert. However, you should be able to create a basic website on your own. This is actually quite easy today, due to the fact that there are thousands of templates and web builder programs available online for free or at a low cost. You will just need to know how to use them efficiently.

Decent web marketing and promotion skills. Again, no need to be an expert. However, you will need to know how to do basic SEO, PPC (pay per click ads), social media marketing and using business directories and classified ads. If there is an area of marketing that you are not too familiar with, then simply read some materials online in order to learn more about it. There’s plenty of free stuff available online if you look in the right places.

Now, what will we be doing with this? Basically, you are going to be running your own web marketing agency, providing your clients with a complete set of solutions to use the internet in order to get new customers and increase their profits. While this is an actual BUSINESS that you will be running (and not just slapping up a few ads and calling it a day), you can make it as small or as big as you like. Check back tomorrow for more information on how to get clients and what to offer them.

How To Stay Up To Date As An Internet Marketer

How To Stay Up To Date As An Internet Marketer


Staying ahead of new developments in the internet marketing world is crucial to the survival of your online business. You see, the whole industry is one that is rapidly changing. New sites, services and ways to earn money pop up all the time. The opposite also happens as some shut down for various reasons. So how do you ensure that you stay up to date with what is happening?

Networking is important.

This is a well known fact in many businesses. In internet marketing, even more so. Even if you run a home business and are the only person in your company, this doesn’t mean that you have to do everything alone. Find other internet marketers to share advice, information and money making techniques with. Chances are, you will learn things that you otherwise would never have known.

Participate in industry forums.

Some online marketers are very active in internet marketing related forums. Others don’t really like them and consider them a waste of time. Whatever your opinion on web forums is, they can be a treasure trove of information and new opportunities. For example, when a new CPA network launches, chances are they will first advertise in industry related forums in order to get some new affiliates on board. You can also use forums to ask questions about things that you aren’t sure of and help others who might benefit from the knowledge that you have acquired. That way, everyone wins.

Talk to your affiliate managers and other contacts.

CPA account managers are there to help you earn more money. As they get bonuses based on how successful their affiliates are, account managers have an interest in you making a lot of money with their network. After all, if you make money, so do they. These people can give you some useful advice on which offers are doing well and can suggest you some to run in your campaigns.

Follow the news.

Consider this: when gas prices were soaring, so were sales of products that help people reduce their fuel consumption and find alternative sources of energy. When the recession hit, offers that dealt with business opportunities and government grants have become much more popular. Do you think all of this is a coincidence? By staying ahead of the news and current events, you will find it a lot more easy to take advantage of money making opportunities, as you will have a better idea of what people will be searching for. It is also a good idea to keep up to date on what’s happening in other parts of the world too. Even if you are based in the USA, there are plenty of CPA offers that you can run which target traffic from Europe, Australia, or Canada. Spend a few minutes each day to see what is going on in those places and whether this would create an opportunity for you to earn even more money.

Why Multiple Streams Of Income Are Important In The Online World

Why Multiple Streams Of Income Are Important In The Online World


If you’ve been reading certain guides on online business, you may have been told that in order to succeed you need to have “multiple streams of income”. Now what does this mean? And most importantly, is it actually true or is it simply a gimmick that is used by product creators to try and have you buy their guides?

Simply put, having multiple streams of income means that you are making money online through various different sources. It’s actually as simple as that. And it is also a concept that can be applied to any online money making activity, whether you are running affiliate offers, selling your own products, providing services or publishing pay per click advertisements on your site.

Now is it something that is really necessary to have? If you are running a business that is bringing you a full time income, then the answer is yes. Now why is that? So that your business can keep operating even if one of your income sources declines or dries up completely. Sure, you may think that it won’t happen to you, but if you’ve read any internet marketing forum, you will find plenty of stories about it happening to other marketers.

There are certain products or offers which are only popular during a certain time and then their popularity decreases. Think of the Acai Berry CPA offers that were all the rage about a year ago. Sure, a lot of marketers made money from them. Some made very serious amounts of cash. But a few months after it peaked, the offer started going down due to the fact that the product received some negative press due to questionable claims made by manufacturers, plus many people complaining that they were having a hard time canceling their subscription to this rebill offer.

There has also been cases where some smaller CPA or affiliate networks were having trouble paying those who run their offers. Some people were getting paid late, others ended up not getting their money at all in some cases. Obviously, if you only work with one network and they have trouble paying their affiliates, this will spell trouble for your business as well.

Organizing multiple streams of income is not difficult at all. Say if you are a CPA marketer, you simply have to work with a few different networks and run some different campaigns on each. You don’t even have to do it all at once if it would be too hard for you to manage. For example, you could run offers from network A for the first half of the month and network B for the other half.

If you are a freelancer such as a content writer or web designer, advertise your services on a few different sites and not only one. Also, work with a few different clients if possible. That way, if one of your regular clients who you’ve worked for during many months suddenly doesn’t need any work done during this month, you won’t be left scrambling to find other ones.

Can “Cheap” Traffic Be Effective For CPA Offers?

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Can “Cheap” Traffic Be Effective For CPA Offers?


When looking for a way to advertise some CPA offers online, you may have come across providers which offer cheap traffic coming from popup, popunder and intersitial (your page is displayed while another page is loading) ads. By browsing the internet, you may have seen these ads yourself. They are especially popular on sites which offer downloads, flash games, video sharing or picture uploading. As an internet marketer, the main question that might come to your mind is: does the traffic coming from these ads have the potential to earn me money?

The short answer is yes. However, you need to be aware of a few things before you run a campaign with traffic coming from these ad sources. Here are a few things that you need to consider:

The offer type that you should promote:

People who will be viewing these ads will NOT usually be in buying mode. That is, they will not be shopping for a product to buy. This is due to the fact that most of these ads are served on sites which primarily provide entertainment and distractions to the viewers. Therefore, promoting any offer which requires the buyer to use their credit card (even for a completely free trial) or to buy anything will usually give you poor results. So poor, that you have better odds of winning $50 in a scratch-off ticket than getting a conversion.

They work best with CPA offers that require very little action from the viewer. Email submit offers are pretty much the best thing to use them with. Even though they pay quite little (between $1 and $1.50 per lead usually), the traffic is very inexpensive and this makes it possible to turn a profit if you do it the right way.

Catching the users attention:

If you link directly to the offer, you will get poor results. The user will probably just get annoyed and ignore your ad or just close it. Therefore, you need to build a simple landing page that includes elements designed to get their attention to your ad and make them take the necessary action, which is clicking through to the offer and entering their email address.

There are various ways to do this. The first one would be to include a simple Javascript code that will make a dialog box appear (similar to a Windows error message). The dialog box can say “You have been selected to get [whatever your CPA offer is giving] for FREE! Only your email address is required to claim your gift!” Another tactic that you can try using is making use of an audio recording that tells the user they have been selected to receive a prize and they should enter their email address on the next page to claim it.

Don’t be afraid to experiment and try various things to get conversions. Remember, the traffic is quite cheap (you can get 1000 US visitors for less than $2 on some sites) so even if 1 out of every 200 people that see your ad actually do the email submit, you will still come out ahead.

Earning From Biz Opp CPA Offers – Part 1

Earning From Biz Opp CPA Offers – Part 1


Here’s another way to earn money quite easily from a certain category of CPA offers. This method focuses mainly on business opportunity (biz opp) lead offers. Before we begin, let’s take a look at what these offers are and how they work in order to gain a better understanding of what we will be doing here. Biz opp lead offers are CPA offers where the visitor fills in some contact details in exchange for information about joining a business opportunity or getting some tools to make money online. This could be anywhere from a single field email submit to complete contact details with name, address, phone number, etc.

The main difference between these and other biz opp offers is that the buyer will not be required to provide a credit card number or pay anything for you to get credit. The merchant makes money either by trying to upsell a paid membership (similar to dating offers) or by attempting to have the client join a paid business opportunity (most often used for offers related to multi level marketing programs). In any case, you don’t earn any additional money if they buy something later on and you also don’t lose anything if they don’t. The goal is just to get the visitor to provide their contact info.

How much do these offers pay? The exact payout will vary from offer to offer. It can go anywhere from $1 for a simple email submit to $6 for submitting 2 pages of information.

Now that you know a bit more background information about these offers, the question remains, how to get good quality traffic to them? Of course, there are various ways to send traffic to CPA offers. However, they won’t all be profitable for you. Advertising via Google Adwords is pretty much out. The competition for keywords such as “make money online” or “make money with eBay” is very intense and the price per click can get very high. Due to the fact that the payout is only a few dollars per lead it will be quite difficult to make a decent profit.

You will need to use a traffic source that is both free and can bring a relatively large amount of visitors to your site. There are two traffic sources that you can use for this: offline marketing and online classified ad sites.

Now in online classifieds it may sound easy to just post ads and send clicks to your website, this is not the way to go. Your ads will often be either ignored by the viewers or marked as “spam” and deleted. There is another approach that you can take in order to increase the effectiveness that your ads have and make viewers much more willing to sign up for the offer you are pushing.

Becoming A Merchant – The Other Side Of CPA – Part 4


Well now that you have your product, required funding as well as a merchant account, there will be something else that you need: some staff. While at first, you may think that you can manage this business all by yourself. Sure, this might be true if you only make a dozen or so sales a day. However, when your business quickly begins to grow, it will also rapidly become too overwhelming for one person to handle every aspect of it.

One of the most important parts of owning a rebill CPA offer is customer service. You need to be able to answer your customers should they want to cancel their subscription, have not received their product, or have some other problem. If you have just one phone number that is always busy and it takes you a week to answer your emails, this will leave your customers dissatisfied. And if they want to cancel, or have not gotten their product, they will simply end up charging back through their credit card company.

There are alternatives to actually having an office and hiring staff locally. You can outsource many functions of your business, including the customer service to a 3rd party. There are plenty of call centers which can handle queries from your customers and treat requests such as cancellations. All you have to do is set up a web based interface to let them do the transactions and a knowledge base with answers to questions that customers may ask.

As for many administrative tasks, such as dealing with the vendor that is shipping out your merchandise and doing general admin and accounting functions, this can be outsourced to a virtual assistant. You can find many offshore outsourcing companies doing business on internet marketing forums. It is usually possible to have a dedicated, full time virtual assistant working for you for $200 to $400 a month.

While this short guide has given you the general framework needed in order to build and operate this kind of business, it is far from complete. After all, a truly detailed guide covering every aspect of this topic would probably be several hundred pages long. Therefore, you need to go out and seek the necessary information on this business.

There are a few ebooks and guides which deal about this topic that you can read, which will give you more detailed guidance. But don’t forget that there is something a lot more valuable than any written guide: actual human interaction. Even though this is your own business and you are the sole person responsible for its success it doesn’t mean that you have to do everything all by yourself. Network with other marketers who are running this kind of business or planning to set one up. Exchange information, practical advice and ideas with them. Ask questions on marketing forums. The better prepared you are, the less likely you will be to make costly mistakes and the more profitable your business will be.

Another Easy Way To Make Money With CPA Offers – The Poll Method


Ever wondered if there was an easy way to make money with CPA email submit offers? Don’t worry, there are some ways that you can make a decent amount of money promoting these types of offers. At first, it may seem quite difficult to earn some cash from an offer that pays $1 to $2 per lead. The key here is to get traffic to the offer which is inexpensive and converts well enough for you to make a decent amount of cash. This is possible to do by making use of pay per click advertising services such as Google Adwords.

Now normally, running these offers and sending traffic straight to the merchant would not be so profitable. You will face rather stiff competition and the price per click would almost guarantee that you lose money. But there is a way to change all of that. It’s called the “poll” method.

The first thing you need to do is to find a topic that is hot in searches and is trending right now. Issues that are in the news right now are very good choices. Google has a service called Google Trends (trends.google.com), which allows you to see the current hot searches. You would then pick some topics and run their related keywords through the Google Adwords keywords tool. This will allow you to find the one with the least expensive keywords.

Now here’s the main part of the method. In order to promote the offer, we will create a poll. That’s right, a one question survey. For example, if there is an election going on in the United States, the poll could simply be something like “Who will become the next president? Candidate A or Candidate B? Vote now to get a [Insert freebie promoted in email submit offer]” Once the user votes, they are told to enter their email on the next page and redirected to the email submit offer.

Now, how do you design the poll page? You have two options. Either you can get a poll script that is made for this purpose. There are plenty which are floating around for download in some internet marketing forums. They are relatively easy to install if you have some experience with running scripts on your web server.

If not, then simply design a page with the options and two radio buttons (the round options that let the user make a selection) which actually do nothing and a “click here to vote” button which goes to the next page telling the user to enter his email on the offer page, and then automatically redirects him to that offer. There’s nothing really wrong about that, since, after all, you’re not here to collect statistics, but to make money from the email submits. Technically, the poll is only used to draw the user’s attention and nothing more.
