Like I've promised in this thread:

I'll share how I make $100/day sending traffic to cpa offers.
I've seen many newbie struggling to make their first $100 in Affiliate Marketing.
You see, most people do not make money in Affiliate Marketing because they make everything too complicated.
They want to read everything from Niche Research
to Keyword Tracking
before they start.
I am going to show you how I make $100 a day with one simple method: running polls online.
This technique is not new, and I didn’t invent it either. It’s been used for years, but it has proven itself to work just fine.
Just like any other thing in life, I’ve more success with this method than the others because I take extra efforts in maximizing every detail and work hard on it.
This method alone is making me $100 almost every day. Some days I am even generating over $200 from this simple method.
Anyone should be able to follow these methods and start right away after reading the following steps:
Step 1: Getting Poll Ideas
I go direct to Yahoo Buzz Index. http://buzzlog.buzz.yahoo.com/overall/
Yahoo Buzz Index shows the top overall searches in Yahoo every day. The data is collected from Yahoo Search log files.
This is what I'll do.....
My strategy is: Always look for a popular event, be it sport tournament, political scandal, NBA finals etc....I prefer events that last for a few weeks so my polls will have a longer life span.
But the sneaky part is, I don't run polls on event itself. I run polls on people involves in the event.
I don't run polls like:
Do You Like This Year's NBA Finals?
MVP 2009: Make Your Case, Lebron or Kobe.
People only vote when they're emotionally connected to your poll. People don't care about the sport event; they are only interested in their sport stars. As simple as that.
May be I'll run a poll on an event if the next 911 strikes again. Only "event" like that will have impact
Get the idea now? Always on people (idol, political icon, sport stars, celebrity host, etc....) People, people, people, remember that and you'll make money running polls online.
Step 2: Signed up as an affiliate in a few CPA campaigns network.
I picked up email submit offer to promote. Email submits offers pay out $1.00 to $1.30 to me when someone enters his email.
Step 3: Run ad in Google AdWords.
I ran my ad in Google “content network” to get dirt cheap clicks; meaning, my ads will only appear in those websites with AdSense on them.
I started with $0.20 to attract traffic, then slowly bid down to around $0.10- $0.07 over 48 hours. For certain niche, I get tons of traffic even at $0.07 per click.
Step 4: Set Up Landing Page
Get a domain, host my landing pages.
Send traffic from Google ads to the landing pages.
When visitors land on my page, take my survey, I thank them for their opinion and then offer a free gift as a thank you for participating in the survey.
I send them to the offer page, they enter their email, and I get paid $1.30.
Since my cost is only $0.07, I made a lot of money with this simple method.
Step 5: Keywords Selection
As Google Content Network is theme triggered, NOT keyword triggered, I don't care much on keyword.
Just open up KeywordElite and use whatever spit out by the software. To save time, I only select Google and Yahoo data. Ignore ask.com and WordTracker....they give tons of junk.
I'm lazy to delete those junks later.
This technique works very well short-term because it relies on recent news events.
Most people fail in polls only for 3 reasons.
1.Either they don't have the right tools (I’ve a few scripts to automate stuff)
2.or they don't have the right knowledge
3.or they're not working hard enough.
