“How do websites make money with CPA?” may be yet another question you may have when starting out in internet marketing. A CPA (Cost Per Action) network is simply a network of advertisers that will pay you a commission to advertise for them. The customer doesn’t necessarily have to buy something, they just want them to take a specific action. It can be the action of giving their email address and other personal information, or it can be signing up for a trial offer. If the potential customer uses your web page with your affiliate link to complete the action, you will earn a commission.
CPA marketing can be very lucrative if done correctly. In order to start earning money with CPA you must get accepted to at least 1 CPA network. Through this network is where you will get the offers and affiliate links to promote to your website viewers.
Getting accepted to CPA networks is not as hard as it may seem and if you don’t get accepted to one, move on to the next, there are quite a few to choose from. First you need to go to the networks website. You will need to fill out an application in order to be accepted by the CPA network.. They will ask for the domain name of the website you plan to use to promote products. If you do not have a website set up as of yet, you may want to put something like: willdiscussonphoneinterview.com. This will let the application reviewer know that you wish to talk further about possible opportunities over the phone.
After you fill out your application, try to call the network soon after and notify them that you have submitted an application. You do this to show you are eager to get to work and make money. Be honest on your application and let them know that you plan to build web pages around the offers for a custom campaign.
Overvault and Affspy are 2 websites that you can use if you are searching for a specific niche or offer but need to find out what network carries the offer.
Once your campaign is set up, your next, but most important step is getting traffic. It is highly recommended to seek free methods of traffic when you are new to CPA. Paying for traffic can get very expensive and you should only take this route when you have some experience under your belt.
To make a long-term business out of CPA, you want to build a list for yourself and then send them to the CPA offer. Your #1 goal is to get and keep a customer for their lifetime value. Build a list so you can sell to them over and over again. After the customer has completed the first offer, you can present them with other CPA offers that may interest them in the future. Use the information you already have about what they are interested in or searching for online.
For example, if a person signs up to your list looking for information on “payday loans”, this means they are probably in debt or have trouble with money. In this case, offers in the debt market are what you should present to them in the future. Focusing on a broader market and keeping in mind possible future offers when choosing CPA offers, can turn a 1 time customer into a lifetime customer.
