    Hi all,

    I hope this is ok to post in this section. I have been an Amazon affiliate for about 4 years primarily doing SEO and gaining traffic from search engines. However, I wanted to take a try at CPA but am confused about a few things. Hoping I could get some advice.

    1 - Most people say to use a landing page. From what I see the offer itself I could promote also has a landing page. So does that essentially mean (if I am using PPC) that a searcher would click my ad, goto my landing page, and then i'd hope for them to click forward to the offer landing page and fill it out? I just thought that might be a lot of clicking.

    2 - Another item I have read is around tracking and re-optimizing your campaigns. Most tools I have looked at though are expensive for right now. Is there a free way to track your campaigns and receive useful metrics?

    3 - Spying on successful ads. Let's say I see an offer for Company XYZ Corp that I thinks looks promising. Do I just type in that company and see what ads show up to see how successful people are doing with that offer? Again I know there are paid tools but am trying to see what to use starting out.

    So are there any tracking methods that are free or a much lower cost? Seems to me that is a high monthly fee for someone starting out. Do most newbies make this investment right away?

    A mechanic can't work without tools.

    Hi dude, i think there is no need to run your ad with two opt-in, i think you can test your landing page, and try to set just one , it will be better for you i think!
    I think the only effective way that can help you spying on ads, should be by affording a spy-tool for this, it could be helpful for you! good luck.
