CPA Marketing Tips From An Amateur


I’ll be honest with you, CPA marketing is fucking hard, there are definitely easier ways to make money online, and I’m definitely not making a bazillion dollars as a CPA marketer yet so I’m probably not the best person to be giving you any CPA Marketing Tips but a bunch of the people on my VIP Subscribers List have been asking about my progress so here are my best CPA Marketing Tips:

My Best CPA Marketing Tips:

1. Don’t try to direct link the offers. Unless you’re in a small market without much competition it’s nearly impossible to profitably direct link anything. If was that

2. Spy on the other people who are promoting the offer. Use to see where the most traffic is coming in from, you’ll probably find that there’s an advertorial sending the most traffic. Advertorials make the most sales, which allows the advertiser to pay the most for the traffic, so they tend to buy most or all of it.

3. Learn to create advertorials. They work. The goal is to convince people that they’re reading an article or editorial. If misleading people to make more money is uncomfortable to you then get out of marketing now.  You’re just not cut out for it.

4. Don’t be afraid to spend money. You’ve got to buy some data. You’re never going to be profitable right away. When you start a campaign your goal is to identify profitable advertising targets.

5. Hire a coach if you can afford one. Seriously. Figuring it out on your own is way to hard.

So far that’s all I’ve come up with. Those are my best CPA marketing tips, I’ll continue to put out more content on the subject as my skills improve so keep checking back for more if it’s something you’re interested in.It’s all about testing and tracking.

Being a great salesman helps, being able to write copy helps, being able to design websites helps a lot. Any skill that’ll allow you to create and test landers quickly (don’t forget to focus on advertorials, farticles, flogs etc… think misdirection)

Nothing more annoying than having to wait a week to get your ads back from the programmer while your competitors are building their own in just a couple hours.

Leadpages Review AND Tutorial


In this post I’m going to review Leadpages for you and I’ll include a tutorial or two as well to help get you started using it to build your business. If there’s something specific you would like to do with Lead pages that hasn’t been included in this review then please let me know and I’ll do my best to learn it and shoot a video showing you how to do it.
You can get a free trial so you can follow along with the set up tutorial by clicking here now.

My First Review!

This is the first time I’ve done an official review on anything so don’t be to hard on me if this review sucks. I usually try to stick to putting out trainings and tutorials instead of reviews.

Free Trial

After reading this review and watching the tutorials you can click here now to start you free leadpages trial. It’s really pretty awesome. I highly recommend it.

I love Leadpages for a few reasons:

1. It’s inexpensive compared to the alternative s
2. It’s super easy to use
3. You don’t need a website if you don’t want to have one because Lead pages will host all the pages it creates for you.

Leadlinks is a really cool feature that lets you move people from one list to another based on what email links they click on. This is useful for marketers who promote several related offers.

Most of the people who join your list will never buy your main offer, but they might be like to buy something else instead so promoting other products is a great way to further monetize your list.

You might get 1% of the people on your list to buy your main offer, which is pretty good, maybe even profitable. But that leaves another 99% of your list that hasn’t been monetized. You could double your income just by finding another product that gets a 1% conversion.

Imagine having ten or twelve products and being able to monetize 12% of your list instead of only 1% ?!?! Many of the people on your list will buy more than one product, which means even more money in your pocket.

Split Testing

Spit testing is the most important skill you can develop as a marketer. Seriously. Just start doing it. Split testing is marketing. There’s nothing more imortant.

Split testing is built in so you don’t have to worry about learning much, just follow the onscreen instructions and you’ll be good to go. Split testing is so powerful that you can double or triple your income with split testing.

Imagine getting a 10% raise for changing the background color from blue or gray. Or even for underlining a few words. Without split testing you’ll never figure this kind of stuff out.

Obviously your message is really important, but layout and color changes can take a good message and double or triple the return that you get using it.


Leadpages is loaded with templates. All kinds of templates. Templates for opt in pages, templates for sales pages, templates for thank you pages, even templates for launch funnels.

Many of the templates are designed in partnerships with very powerful marketers. Because leadpages already has so many templates to choose from, you don’t really have to know much about marketing to get started using it. Just log in and pick one.

WordPress Plugin

One cool feature is the wordpress plugin that’s included at no extra cost. Basically it allows you to put the pages you’ve created on your wordpress site without doing any coding. This way your links will be “” instead of the lead pages url.

Plus if your wordpress site is on a fast server you’ll get faster load times so you’ll never lose any visitors, like if you’re using ppv ads or something like that where fractions of a second can make a huge difference.

Easy To Use: All Point And Click

Point and click technology. Leadpages is all point and click. You don’t need to do anything but point and click, no coding. You might need to copy and paste from time to time, but that’s the most complicated part.

Easy setup

Easy set up. Lead pages is really easy to set up, just integrate your autoresponder (I prefer Get Response) and start creating your pages.

One of the biggest things that keeps people from making money online is the fact that there’s so much to learn. It”s one less thing to stop you or hold you back from making money online.

Lead pages Alternatives

There are a few leadpages alternatives, but only one of them is really any competition. Clickfunnels has some functionality that leadpages doesn’t have, but it’s also two times as expensive.

Another alternative is epic squeeze pro, which is a wordpress plugin. Its cool because you only have to pay once, but it sucks because it only creates one kind of landing page and nothing else. You can swap out the background image but that’s about it.

Optimize press is another alternative. Honestly I’ve never used optimize press so I really comment on it. I’ve got a few friends who used to use it but stopped when they found leadpages.

 Review Summary

Leadpages is a very powerful tool that can be used to get customers for online businesses as well as offline businesses. Obviously it’ll allow you to create really high converting landing pages, but it’ll also allow you to create thank you pages, sales pages, advertorials, launch funnels, and even help you segment your email lists.

I’ve personally used this tool for lots and lots of different business growth strategies and you can too. It’s used by some of the wealthiest marketers on earth. When it first came out it revolutionized the internet marketing industry and it’s only continued to improve since then.

Pretty much anybody can use it because it’s easy to set up and all of it’s features are pretty much point and click. It’s my favorite sales funnel software, I use it to build all of my landing pages and even some of my sales pages. I don’t generally use thank you pages, but that’s because I use single opt in so it’s really not necessary.

Most marketers use double opt in to build their lists but I don’t think it’s really necessary these days but I guess you’ll have to test it out for yourself and see which one gets you paid the most.
