It's hard to say what minimum is needed, but if you are a member of AdOn you are already on the cheapest network. Their pop unders start at .005 so it is cheapest. But there isn't a ton of traffic there either. You will need money to test offers, the higher the payout the more you might need. I would plan on losing money in the beginning and write it off as training

I think $100 is enough to start... Just make sure that you keep your test small... Too many targets will burn through your budget before you ever get a chance to acquire any significant data. The big key is just getting started as you will learn a lot from the experience.

razvan,

what i can tell you are my mistakes:
i needed more than 100$ in the beginning. i jumped from offer to offer, not analysing data, i was impatient, wasn't thinking much about the offer-target relationship...so made a lot of mistakes.
and for last, i didnt know about cpvden

so if you track, analyse your data and think before act, that 100$ will be enough for start.

Like Turtle said above, "Keep your test small".

Your best bet is to start with a zip/email submit and target the brands website if it isn't too spendy. For instance, promote an Apple Ipad submit on Apple.com/ipad (if that is a real url).

This is the best way to target interested consumers and keep your url targets very tight. You won't make big $$ until you scale the campaign out, but you will get conversions!

Be aware though, this isn't new info and you will have a lot of competition. It might be hard to keep your bids cheap enough to profit. Focus on deeper website links, or other niches!

Good Luck!

At least $500 to start, $1000 is better.

Pick your favorite niche.

Find out everything you can about that niche... offers, who's the big players/sellers, quantcast data, google ad planner data, alexa data, Compete.com (if you can afford it).

Type your niche into google or other SE. See what results come up. Click on ppc ads and see what landers they use. Click on niche banner ads on relevant sites and see what landers they use.

Check offers on offervault.com and offernut.com

Sign up for email newsletters from your niche using your own throwaway email address. See what ads you get (especially in your bulk folder), maybe you can recycle them into ppv.

Install adware on your computer. Visit those sites in your favorite niche.

Keep records of everything.

Get your tracking in place - cpvlab, tracking202, bevo, coach's tracker, whatever...

Don't be afraid to spend money on an offer in your niche.

Test like crazy and get good at that niche.

Then rinse and repeat.
