I Think I figured It Out...

    OK, So for whatever reason, we lost our internet connection
    yesterday, so had no internet all day or night long. Of course
    I was kind of freaking out, because I had ads running on Facebook,
    POF, and a couple of other places, and didn't want to end up
    spending $3000 for nothing! Well, I finally got everything shut
    off using my cell phone, then sat around thinking about things
    for the night.

    Got up this morning hoping the internet repair guy would be
    early, but he never showed up. Again, for-whatever reason, our
    internet connection just started working out of the blue again! I
    don't know what's going on, go figure, doesn't make any sense to
    me either! ha ha

    So, I got online and started running all over the place reading
    everything I could find on CPA marketing and mobile advertising.
    After the last few hours of reading and scouring the internet for
    info, I think I see now what has happened (for me at least).

    I have come to realize here today, that the big jump into mobile
    marketing happened over the last 3 years or so. So, many many
    people made it big so-to-speak in mobile, because they got in
    when you should have... when it was new and wide open to about

    Now, although there are a ton of people claiming to be able to show
    you how to make it big in CPA mobile, the real truth of the matter is,
    that horse has run it's course, and unless you have many thousands
    of dollars to dedicate to testing to find what's going to work, you need
    to stay on the porch. Remember, if you're going to run with the big
    dogs, get your wallet out or you best stay your butt on the porch?

    I remember watching a video recently where Greg Davis himself told
    everyone watching, that if you didn't have money to work with, you
    would be pretty much wasting your time, and your money.

    I watch all of Greg's stuff when I can, I think he is a great marketer
    and knows what he is talking about, so I respect his judgement when
    it comes to CPA and mobile. He hasn't made millions by not knowing
    what he's talking about, that's for sure.

    So, I think many of us have missed the boat. The big money income
    from mobile was from 2009/2010 to 2013. Now everyone and there
    grandma is trying to do it, and it's just not that easy any more. I hear
    people talking about remembering the days they used to get traffic
    for .002 and .005 per click!! Why can't you do that any more? Because
    the market is saturated to death with everyone trying to make their
    $1000 a day!

    I also know from years of playing the internet marketing game, that the
    big dogs will always get first dibs on the kick-butt offers. The little guys
    get the scraps if there is anything left after the big dogs have taken their

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to be a downer, but I am also trying to
    be realistic and looking at the big picture. Yes, I think you can still make
    money at CPA and mobile, but I also think you need a hell of a lot more
    to work with than $100, $200, $500 even more than $2000!

    I think the opportunities are out there, but you're going to need to find
    them, and that may cost a few thousand to dig them out. I few thousand
    may not be very much to some people, but it's the difference between
    eating and feeding my kids and losing it all "hoping" to hit just the right
    one and make it.

    I thought I had the right idea when I came back to the internet, and still
    think I do, but the "guru's" just are not out there. I contacted two of them
    who actually advertise one their sites that they would train people for
    $x.xxx amount of dollars, but never contacted me back! It sounds like a
    good idea at first, but the secrets get held pretty tightly to the vest when
    it comes down to teaching someone what really works. To many people
    doing what "really" works, and it doesn't work anymore. Can you say
    1 cent facebook clicks?

    I would love to take Greg up on his $50,000 offer and get some training
    from him, but come on... ha ha, where am I going to get $50,000 from?
    ha ha If I had $50,000, I'd feel like a millionaire!

    So anyway, I'm going to hold onto what little money I have left and move
    along in life. The World is a changing place, and I don't think there is a hell
    of a lot of time left to really make much before the big banksters pull the
    plug. I was hoping to take part in the fun before it all goes to hell, but I
    waited to long on this one.

    I may look around for a mentor a bit longer, but I'm not going to waste any
    more money just tossing it at campaign after campaign hoping something

    I wish you all the best of luck and hope happiness finds it's way to you.


    P.S. I didn't proof read this, so if there are errors... sorry! ;)

    Just a note,

    I decided I would give CPA Evolution a try. I emailed William
    and he responded very quickly, so that was a good sign to
    me, considering everyone else who claimed to be an expert
    at this stuff never once emailed me back.

    Now that I am in the members area, to be honest so far, it looks
    pretty sweet. Oops, guess you can guess my age with that
    comment. There is a lot more in there than I expected, and a
    few bonuses.

    So, I will follow along the plan and we will see if I can make
    a go at this CPA stuff one last time. It will feel good having
    some direction at last though.

    Peace to all,

    Hi, Patrick. It is pretty sweet. Yup, I use that word, too. :) I think William will be a big help, he's a well-respected, knowledgeable and experienced mentor.

    When you get a chance, you can also check out Cashmoneyaffiliate here on Affiliatefix. He does extremely well in mobile and has offered plenty of advice, guides, case studies.

    Here are a few of his links. The actual landing pages and strategies he uses are in The Dojo.


    Good luck and enjoy learning from William!

    Hi Shirley,

    Well, I have had some time to go through things inside of CPA Evolution, and I am totally
    stoked! I believe this is what I was looking for all along since coming back to the internet.
    So I am glad I took the chance and signed up, I think this will be a very positive thing for
    me (and those who signed up).

    Yes, I purchased CMA's ebook on mobile cpa, and it is a very good read. I think more people
    should read it and learn what he teaches, it's some pretty heavy stuff, not the same old stuff
    that you hear about everywhere else.

    So, I am on my way, and I think it was fate (the Universe / God / Higher Power / whichever
    works best for you) that led me to William and CPA Evolution, and I am ready for an incredible
    positive journey from here on out.

    I was getting so frustrated looking for a coach or mentor and here he was right in front of me
    the whole time! ha ha I'm just glad that I stopped and really looked before walking away. I
    was asking and seeking, and the Universe was supplying, I just needed to slow down and
    see it.

    Peace To All,

    Hey Patrick

    I like your blunt honesty. It is sorely missed at times in this industry and in fact the world in general. Yes there will always be money to be made but you are right. if you want to make the big money you have to be able to test and scale on a larger picture. there are ways to get around what your talking about and it is something we have been working on for some time now. it is all trial and error and as "used" as that statement is, it is still true. We are happy with making what we need to stay relevant and support the charities that need the help. Money is not everything my man. My philosophy is to find what truly makes you happy. There will always be ways to make it.

    Hi again, Patrick. Love what you wrote! I also wonder how many things we miss simply because we don't slow down enough to notice them.
