How does CPA (cost per acquisition), affiliate marketing, etc., work? Any success, experience, ideas?

I have heard that things such as CPA marketing, email list marketing, affiliate, etc., are all ways some people have become millionaires at doing online.

My questions and concerns are simple, and any of the following are opt-outs for me:

1.Is CPA investment-free(i.e., do I need to invest money to have the possibility to make it)?

2.Is the time put in equivalent to the money put out(i.e., I won’t work 8 hours a day for 5 days a week to earn $12.00 only).

3.Is money earned directly accessible, deposited, or in any way reachable to me(i.e., is the money made able to be withdrawn, is there minimum required limits to withdraw, etc.)?

Also, does anyone here have experience with affiliate marketing, CPA marketing, and the like?

I’d like some pointers here. I don’t expect to be a millionaire overnight (though who wouldn’t wish for that), but I don’t want time, money, and efforts going to waste for little or no return. Thanks.

PS: I have very, VERY little income as of now, and barely getting anywhere off my businesses/self-employment. I can’t work most “real” hourly jobs like most people do for reasons I won’t give here, and problems preventing me from doing so(none illegal/criminal related).

    I do have experience in affiliate marketing as well as helping small businesses of any type successfully market online. Yes there are companies that meet your criteria, I would love for you to email me so I can share my knowledge with you. I am also in a similar situation as far as a “real job” goes, and quite possibly the same.

    Answers to your questions:

    1. Is CPA investment-free?

    - It is free to join CPA Networks (or should be free otherwise AVOID) but as a beginner I would start off with affiliate marketing as CPA marketing is a lot more complex. Most of the top CPA networks will only accept already successful affiliates anyway.

    2. Is the time put in equivalent to the money put out?

    - That depends on the quality of the work that you put in. For example, writing a quick product review, and highlighting just the good features, will be time wasted. But writing a comprehensive and honest product review, including all the pros AND cons, will be time well spent. People search for product reviews to find real info because they can find the ‘features’ and ‘best bits’ on the product sales page.

    3. Is money earned directly accessible, deposited, or in any way reachable to me?

    - There are many affiliate networks that offer instant commissions. Some of the best ones to consider are:

    http://rapbank.com
    https://www.digiresults.com
    http://paydotcom.com

    Also, there are many free affiliate marketing courses online for beginners. Here are a couple of highly recommended ones to get you started:
