It’s the truth. It is so much easier to succeed now than before not just in CPA marketing, but in any business that you are in.
In the past, there wasn’t even anything call tracking software. There was nothing. Everything was manual subid tracking on the network itself. I will have to download the data into excel and download my traffic expenses into excel and then do manual optimizing and calculating the EPC using excel.
Golden rule of CPA marketing: EPC > CPC = PPC (Profit Per View)
1) Right now, we have so many tools to help you with your business that make it such a breeze to do tracking and optimization.
The first that came out was Prosper202 which was sufficient and then it was CPVLab which came and overtake the throne. Then right now we have Volumn, iMobiTrax and so many tracking software that can help you with your business.
Tracking has never been easier than before and so much time efficient than before.
2) In the past, there’s no such thing call spytool. We had to manually pretend to be the user and surf around the Internet in order to see what other marketers are doing. This took up a lot of time in terms of researching and doing competitor analysis.
Right now, we have so many spytool out there that can help you with a blink of an eye. Just click a few buttons and you can see EVERYTHING out there on the Internet now.
Yes, they are expensive tools to get, but the data you can get from them is invaluable and that’s why they command such a premium price. However, if you are not at that level of being comfortable with your business, I wouldn’t suggest you to get them now.
It is so much easier now than before to work on your CPA business than before.
3) In the past, there was no proper mentors and no proper courses out there on CPA marketing, there were a lot of scattered information all over the forums and all over the Internet and CPA marketers blog on Affbuzz. Everything that I learn was through trial and error and there was no one to ask except to bang wall and learn things the hard way. Countless hours were spent reading and trying without even knowing if it was good or bad.
Right now, there are so many structured forum and courses out there that you can learn CPA marketing properly with a proven system. Find a good mentor and then just follow and learn his system. Either you do it by paying them for their time and system, or you offer to work for them for free and then learn along the way.
Do not expect someone to coach you and teach you for free. They do not owe you a living and you shouldn’t expect anything first.
If I wanted to learn from someone, I would first make a initial connection by seeing how can I add value and contribute to the mentor first before anything else. In that way, you start to gain trust and may become friends.
There is really no point in going up to someone and tell them, Hi xxx, How Can I Make Money with CPA Marketing. Can you teach me how?
If you want someone to help you, you need to demonstrate that you can help him first isn’t it?
With this 3 points that I have mention out, do you think it is easier or harder to succeed now in CPA marketing than before?
Everything starts from the conversation you have with your mind, if you keep thinking it’s going to tough and it is a lot tougher now, then it will be the truth for you.
If you keep thinking it is a lot easier now than before and the opportunities are still growing, then it will be the truth for you.
The truth is, there is no right or wrong, whatever you tell your mind, will always be right. So in that case, why not think positively?
