How to make money with CPA marketing

Many of the people might have heard about CPA (Cost Per Action) or PPA (Pay Per Action). But, they are not aware of the exact strategies to make money with CPA marketing. From my perspective apart from AdSense and other advertising options one should also try CPA marketing. In the recent times, it has become a popular source for many affiliate marketers and bloggers. The reason is quite simple ; Unlike other campaigns users don’t need to buy anything as the offers are absolutely free.

How does CPA marketing work?

Being a CPA marketer you get paid when a potential user clicks your affiliate link and completes an action. The action could be anything like visiting a website, subscribing to a newsletter, filling a form, downloading a free software or playing a game. CPA marketers could easily make money in no time as users love ‘free’ stuff. There are no restrictions with the platform you are promoting.

One could simply start with Blogger blog or WordPress blog but getting approval from CPA networks is not an easy thing. There are tens of hundreds of CPA networks but one should carefully choose the reputed one. CPA marketers must check the niche, reputation of the network, type of the campaigns and payout before getting started.

CPA networks manually review each application and they will not approve if they aren’t satisfied with the applicant details. Generally they prefer affiliates with prior experience. If one hasn’t any, they would like to hear about long-term goals, daily traffic, current budget and type of campaigns you are going to run. Some networks may straightaway approve you as a CPA marketer. In other words, approval process depends on reputation of the CPA network.

When you apply as a CPA marketer be specific about your goals and shouldn’t try to bluff them with fake experiences. Many people often forget to emphasize more on long-term goals. CPA networks simply love affiliate marketers who have established websites or blogs with good number of followers.

Be honest while approaching CPA networks. You will get an affiliate link once approved as a CPA marketer. Marketers can track their earnings and conversions on their network dashboards. Being a CPA marketer you would be assigned an Affiliate manager to assist you in all areas.

How one can get more benefit with CPA marketing?

It is better to join a reputable and established CPA network to gain more profits. One should ensure that they pay on time without delay. The earnings totally depend on the network and niche. Some networks may pay $0.50 to signup for a newsletter or $20 to join a website. One should figure out the best campaigns which are relevant to your niche. Making the site informative and attractive helps to attract more traffic which results in good conversions.

One can really make money with CPA marketing if they are passionate about those specific niches they are going to promote. Don’t panic if you get rejected by any CPA network. Analyze the mistakes and try to improve in those areas. Sites like Offervault and odigger help you to find amazing and genuine CPA deals.

The main advantage is affiliate manager will contact you every time they come up with the new offers. On the downside CPA marketers may feel annoying when they need to talk on phone with CPA network people while joining.

Conclusion :

Before joining any CPA network make sure that you have a great website and it is performing well. Moreover, it is the passion which drives towards the success.  Newbies should utilize all the resources available to find best CPA deals.

  2. Great article. I am looking to try my hands on CPA marketing, and I could not get a better article than this. The only thing which I did not find was how do we promote our CPA product? How do you drive traffic to it?

    1. Hi Gautham,

      Nice to see you again. I’m glad you like this article. Actually I was planning to write a post on promoting CPA products. But, let me explain you briefly the best ways to promote a CPA product. Generally some reputed networks come up with their own landing pages where you need to redirect users. If they are not offering them then you could simply launch a landing page where you could send potential users for action. You could also use Social media like Facebook pages, Twitter, Youtube and Google+ to drive users. It is always better to go with PPC rather than depending on organic traffic to get good results. I wish you great success with CPA marketing. Thanks for asking. 🙂

  11. I still haven’t understood the difference between CPA and PPD/Affiliate marketing. Will you mind explaining it?
    Also, can I start CPA on a blog of mine? Hope that you review it and tell me if I can start with the same blog or go for others.

    1. Hi Anchit,

      Thanks for stopping by my post. Pay per download is a performance based model and it is a type of CPA marketing. 90% of the companies who are doing PPD campaigns are scamsters as they indulge in illegal activities like spreading adware and spyware along with toolbars and games. It is better to stay away from them. I recommend you to go with PPA campaigns. Your site is fantabulous and you can go with it. I wish you good luck. 🙂
