The CPA Marketing Series And Affiliate Directory

What’s the CPA Marketing Series? Quite simply I am going to walk you thru step by precious step over the course of March on how to get into the world of CPA Marketing. First let me comment that yes my partners and I are launching our own Affiliate CPA Network. So in case your wondering at the end of the month if I posted all the information that is about to come just for my own personal gain I will tell you right now that it’s simply not the case. I have never really done anything like that other than a few affiliate links here and there on this blog. Now will writing all of the following and teaching you this hurt my chances of you WANTING to be a Publisher in my network? As a matter of fact, it possibly could. However I believe in the power of persuasion. In all the things you have ever read online, I can promise you one thing. Your never, ever going to get information like what I am about to share with you, WITHOUT spending a lot of money that only contain bits and pieces here and there.

One last word on the CPA Marketing Series. I am well aware of the nature of conversations from the *whities* on CPA Marketing. This offer is junk, this offer is deceiving, blah blah blah. If your one of those types, feel free to NOT participate in the conversations that follow. You will only waste your time. Your comment will simply be deleted and if you persist please feel free to get a proxy or aircard. I’ve done every form of spam on the planet, so if you think your a badass and feel compelled to test me, by all means dont hold back. Give me your best. This series is designed for the insane amount of people interested in specifically promoting CPA offers who as in this blog’s readership greatly outweigh the ones who have issues with it. If your not into CPA Marketing please note that a lot of what I will share works directly in conjunction with Affiliate Marketing (specifically retail) and will probably be of value to you as well. Also dont hold back on the questions. We want everything out in the open and detailed as possible.


Nothing is going to be left out. March is going to be one of the most (if not the most) informative months for CPA Marketing and making money online in general you will ever read. You see I have an advantage. I dont really care to be a PPC Guy, an Email Guy, and SEO Guy, a Web 2.0 Guy etc. I prefer to be ALL of them at once. Sure I probably could make 300-400K a month solely doing PPC to CPA. However I believe in diversity and as far as being an Affiliate Marketer is concerned it only makes sense to have 1,000 Publishers doing the work for you. That’s Leverage. That’s the easy way.

Prepare your ink cartridges and go to Wally World and buy loads of paper. I conjunction with a lot of writing there will also be video. I will be doing a lot of the talking thru video. I have a newborn baby on the way anytime, A CPA Network launching, I just partnered up with yet another awesome marketer solely for PPC, and I also start my college this coming week. I got a lot on my plate so I am not going to do any contests this month, nor will you see any posts whatsoever this month of nonchalant bullshit. Every post is in regards to making money in March. Think of it as Ruckles March Madness.

 State of the Affiliate Directory

I got a ton of questions on this one. People are wondering why in the world I would ever promote other networks, allow them the opportunity to advertise on my blog or even take the time to write about them when I am in partnership with my own Affiliate Network. That might seem crazy right? I would never NOT allow networks to advertise on here nor would I ever be one biased Affiliate Network type of guy. Sure it probably does hurt me in recruiting new publishers but then again Ruckles has probably thought and sat on this for a long time so there is probably a curve to it right? The fact of the matter is that every network is different. Some are stronger than others, some offer better offers, some just have better staff. You will never see me compare our network to another. That’s not our style nor is it any part of our purpose. CashTactics is my personal blog. If you want a company blog then yes, you will have that too. :)

So absolutely there is an Affiliate Directory and yes I intend to spank everyone on the Internet in terms of the amount of Affiliate Networks, CPA Networks and Advertising spots on the Net. If you think Affiliate Seeking or Affiliate Scout is badass then your going to get a real kick out of what I plan on bringing to the table.

Hey Ruck, can’t wait for this. March is going to be a great month.

Got slapped with a hefty bill a couple of weeks ago and been working non stop to pay it off. This news couldn’t have come at a better time.

For all that are going to follow Ruck’s cpa guides please post your results in the forum so we can share the wealth and help each other.

Maybe you could set up a ‘march’ category for us to use.

March 4, 2008

Ruck this is perfect timing since I am just starting to get into CPAs. I signed up for quite a few a while back and had just never used them. Hopefully this doesn’t get to technical to start with cuz I am kind of slow. This is going to be awesome.

I may have to Skype you if I get to confused. :-)

Boy you sure know how to keep your plate full.

I’m so excited I think I just peed a little.

The hell with college basketball, CPA March Madness FTW!

March 4, 2008

Ahh well I dont watch TV, only movies. Since nothing good comes out on tomorrow, thought this would be perfect timing :)

March 4, 2008

I’m getting my popcorn ready

March 4, 2008

Ahh FINALLY the Ruckinator Has arrived !!!

Dude this has been a long time in the makings for ya,this is going to awesome for us as well as you.

I have been dieing for the day of the Huge announcement and the day has finally come upon us.

From here on in it’s nothing but success for all of us that apply and dedicate our self’s to learning this .

Hey if Ruck has all those things on his plate all at one time, and is willling to do this for us at the same time.The least we could do is give it a little effort show and some dedication to him to learn CPA marking and succeed with it. It’s a Win Win Situation

Ruck —
This is awesome; I am so excited about this – but, on the other hand,
I hope you are taking some time off for the family. We’ll survive the wait. Can you tell I’m a mom of three? ;)

Knowing you, you’ve probably already written it all up and just need to upload it!

Thanks for all you do for us here, I’m sure you will have many loyal followers joining your new network, myself included.

Have a good one!

March 4, 2008

I’m a father of 3 as well :) with the newborn due any day now. However, I have written zero words on this so far. Nope, I did not want to do it that way. I will be writing over the course of the month as if I had not even been promoting an offer yet.

And I shouldn’t. Because honestly there are things we should discuss before ever choosing one.

March 4, 2008

Very cool, Ruck. The part I like is the way you always take it from BEFORE step 1, whereas other folks just give you the middle and end and leave it up to you to figure out the first steps.

Looking forward to learning it. I have kinda had a hard time finding networks…so many to choose from and it’s hard to focus.

March 4, 2008

oh snap. its on boys and girls …

March 4, 2008

hell yea man. i will be ready to suck up everything your throw out this month. this i sgonna be huge and i look forward to it. thanks in advance.

March 4, 2008

I’m hooked!
Balance is good my friend. Be careful not to throw too many things in the air. Is there anything that we can do to prepare ourselves in advance for Ruck’s March Madness Course? Have a certain software, readup on anything, buy a crap load of domains? Anything? Or just be patient?

March 4, 2008

Ahh well, as long as your joined with some networks you could even setup as we move along. As a matter of fact, I would prefer you to do it that way. I am expecting to hear some great success stories in the forum from this. Since this will span a month (yes a month probably) it would probably allow you enough time to move along at our pace.

March 4, 2008

Way excited Ruck!

Me and HugePedlar just finished our CPA landing page generator based off of that file I sent you. I hope I can put it to good use with this!

So would you consider this a course in PPC marketing/traffic brokering?

March 4, 2008


We are going to cover PPC to CPA heavily but I will also be bringing some email and banner/text link talk into the mix as well.

March 4, 2008

Man, have Bead and I arrived at the right time! Thanks in advance, Ruck, for your generosity of time and effort (and patience too heh). We have our app in to CPA Empire. So, we’ll be hoping it gets approved in time to follow along with you.

March 4, 2008

Wow Ruck,
Very cool. I’ll be following along. CPA seems this “other thing” that is different than the rest. I can’t wait to learn.


March 4, 2008

This sounds like it will be one hell of a course Ruck. I cannot wait to see what this brings, especially to my wallet!

March 4, 2008


All the best to you on the pending birth of the new addition to your family :-).

I’m really looking forward to absorbing what you’ll be teaching us this month. My primary interest is in applying it to affiliate marketing of physical products.

I really appreciate ( and I’m sure all of your regular readers do too) you taking the time to share with us your knowledge of what works in making money online.


March 6, 2008

You’re A bad ASS…. Man

March 6, 2008

Hey Ruck… what did you mean by this sentence:

“However I believe in diversity and as far as being an Affiliate Marketer is concerned it only makes sense to have 1,000 Publishers doing the work for you.”

Does that mean it makes sense to use the 1,000 sites (publishers?) on the AdWords content network to drive traffic with PPC?

March 6, 2008

@ Rip – No, I was speaking in regards to myself as I will be a co-partner in running a CPA Network. Having publishers promoting offers throughout our network gives me a little bit more of a broader reach than just promoting offers and products by myself.

March 10, 2008

Ruck, this is now, officially, my favorite blog. Amazing content… Just went through about 2 more hours worth of reading. I’m very impressed with what you’re doing here.

March 23, 2008

nice ..i am following this series for my blog.

March 4, 2009

Hey Ruck I am glad I found this blog and at the right time I have been doing affiliate marketing for about 3 months and I really like it everyday I am learning alot of course I have made some costly mistakes especially in the PPC market.

I am thankful that you are giving something that I know is worth its weight in gold.

In any event…. looking forward to the series…
