How to Get Accepted by CPA Affiliate Networks & The eBay Affiliate Network Truth

===========================================
1. How to get accepted by CPA affiliate networks
===========================================

Thanks for all your great feedback on the make money giving away freebies post I made.

However, some people have trouble when they try to join the CPA networks but without a high traffic website.

A blog reader told me that most of my listed CPA companies require the website should have at least 1000 visitors per month, in one of them they even need 10,000!

So how can you get your applications accepted?

Most CPA networks have comments section in the application. You just explain in the comments block that you are going to use Pay-per-click and purchase some banners or text links to send traffic with direct linking.

You can even try calling in them to get your application manually reviewed.

This should get you into the most CPA networks.

===========================================
2. The eBay affiliate program truth
===========================================

A subscriber asked for my opinion of the Build A Niche Store script(not an affiliate link), which create content sites through the eBay affiliate programs.

I haven’t personally tried BANS but I don’t suggest anybody to buy it, because the eBay affiliate program is not as profitable as some other ones like Clickbank, even Adsense. Since eBay is only sharing a small part of their bid revenue, about 4% of the closing value of a winning bid, which is not generous compare to 75% of Clickbank sale and 78% of Adsense revenue share.

In fact, personally I’ve never had a good experience with the eBay’s affiliate program. If you really want to use BANS, you need to get approved by eBay Partner Network firstly. But the weird thing is I never get approved!

When they was handling their affiliate program with CJ (which turned out to be a big fail) and my affiliate application got declined automatically.

And on April 2008 they finally dropped CJ and built their affiliate program in house. I tried to join their eBay Partner Network but no response from them since I submitted my application.

And even worse, they banned hundreds of affiliates this month for reason that the traffic they were sending to eBay was “significantly less engaged”.

And here’s even a Squidoo len by a sacked eBay affiliate:

So for most for you, what you need is to follow a proven working system, not something that could make you money right now. (Remember the biggest money-making obstacle?)

Here are some proven working marketing systems by Marlon Sanders if you’re lack of one:

Promo Dashboard (Promo in 3 simple steps with list building)

Marketing Dashboard (Setting up your own online business like the experts)

Design Dashboard (Create amazing web pages that sell products like crazy)

Affiliate Dashboard (Launch your own affiliate program & getting streams of active affiliates)

Each of Marlon’s “Dashboard” products is a easy to follow system. I do love the 6 row of lovely icons, each icon is a single step for you to take. Easy and fun. I’m sure you’ll love them too.

Always remember you don’t need to chase the latest money-making opportunities all the time. What you need is just a system, a proven working system.

And always let me know what you think by leaving your comment below.

To your amazing success!

Make Your First $100 Online by Giving Away Free Stuff – Part 2

Henry here with your second part. I hope you found part 1 helpful.

Now let’s go down to the sections that how to actually find a profitable market and build your affiliate websites.

And if you missed part 1 of the article, you can view it here:

Step 2: Select give-away offers & Keyword research.

Before I select the offers, I browse each of my favorite networks because the same offer in different networks may have different commissions.

Now I’ll give you an example:

ORC – Apple iPod nano (Web & Search Traffic Only)

Description: New Apple® iPod® nano. As Thin as a No. 2 Pencil. Stores up to 3 Days of Songs! Participate in the offer and surfers can get it for free. Complete both page one and page two for the lead to be generated. ZIP code required.

You see, when someone clicks the link, and complete the simple two-page signup process; you get $2.40 per lead.

Maybe it doesn’t sound much, but what if you can get 1000s of people sign up for you?
Yeah, this will bring you a nice stream of income.

Now let’s do some keyword research to see if it is worth building a separate affiliate site to solely promote free iPod offers.

Download Keyword Buzz software free here:

Keyword Buzz is a keyword research software that can help you find 1000s of search terms and analyze the demand and supply of any niche market.

Let’s try the keyword “free ipod”

Now the number in the searches column is how many times per day the keyword gets searched.

Wow, you see that more than 1,000 people are searching for free ipods on the Internet every day. Profitable market, uh?

For my part, if your targeted keywords have more than 50 searches per day it’s usually worth building an entire site for that and related keyword.
