Default Where to start?

Hey everyone, I've migrated from PPC-Coach and would love to learn about this new traffic source. So far I have spent the day reading posts, watching the videos, and scouring the rest of the site for info on how to get started. Am I missing something or is there not that much info? Or is CPV a lot simpler than PPC? I guess I was looking for a month 1 section that gives me a guide on where to start and what to do. I'm probably missing something really obvious as usual......

Anyways, if I have it correct, I should:

1. sign up to some CPV networks
2. watch the videos on how to launch campaigns on various networks
3. LAUNCH!!!

Is there anything I am missing? Thanks in advance, and I hope to learn a lot from you guys!

Ok got it, thanks again. That was pretty much my understanding, I guess I was expecting to be overloaded with info......

Also one more question, are there certain networks that I should apply to as a newbie? Like ones that will let me in with no phone interview? I have a good business page btw. Also, i'm not looking for any short cuts but I do realize it will take me a few weeks or even a month to know what i'm doing and to be able to "talk the talk," and I don't want to apply to the "better" networks and get denied right away, and then not be able to reapply until much later. Are my concerns warranted or should I just apply anyways?

Thanks

Dude, do not sweat applying to the affiliate networks (you mean the aff networks, right?).

We're talking about CPA networks here. They're into so much shady stuff that there's not much you could do to get them not to want you except: a) come off as a time-waster or B) come off as a fraud.

That said, if you refuse to talk on the phone, you might come off as a possible time-waster or fraud. Why won't you talk on the phone? They just want to make sure you're not robobotting 1000 aff network sign-ups.

Oh my bad, I should have clarified, I meant the CPV networks. I'm already a member of a handful of decent CPA networks, and I'm past the "scared to talk on the phone" stage, thank god lol.

As for CPV networks I've applied to Media Traffic, AdOn, Lead Impact, and Direct CPV. I'm going to call each of them this morning and make sure my accounts are up and running, or if not, what I need to do to get them up and running. I guess my only concern was on how to get accepted to Traffic Vance, but I found a few guides on here, and can probably get a referral......

That should be enough networks for now. Anyways, i'm glad to get step 1 out of the way.........

Sounds like you are right on track. Most of those smaller networks are easy to get into as long as you are not from certain countries. Traffic Vance is the hardest to get into as they really research you before accepting you. Let us know if you need help getting accepted to any of the ones you have already applied for.

it's actually a lot more difficult than you might imagine to get into some cpa networks these days also. coop and i both got our applications rejected from a certain network. i was only approved after having another network owner vouch for me

In a short answer to the op's question, zango and mediatraffic are pretty easy to get into, Adon is harder and TV is probably the hardest, just based on my own experience. But just keep in mind their biggest concern is avoiding timewasters and frauds and since you're not either one, if you can get that message across clearly, you can get in. I would apply to mt and zango, get in, spend a little money and test it out with them, and then you'll be able to say confidently to TV et al that "I have experience in cpv, I've spent some money with mt and zango, but I've heard you guys are the real deal."

Sorry, but your post made it sound like you were reluctant to talk on the phone, which you shouldn't be, for any reason. When they called me they just wanted to make sure I was who I said I was, that my phone number was my phone number and not a skype number or something, my address and not a forwarding station, etc. And that I knew a little bit about cpv and was ready to spend a couple thousand a month. I think you might actually get more scrutiny if you're in a LLC or inc., but maybe I'm wrong?

Hey thanks for the response. I just sent in my application to Traffic Vance, and will call them in the morning. AdOn was pretty easy to get into, as were Media Traffic and Lead Impact. Traffic Vance should be okay as soon as I can find a reference........
