CPA marketing is when you make people take some action (e g. submit an email, or register an account etc.), and you get paid for that.
It’s pretty much the easiest way to make some quick cash online with little to no money to invest.
You don’t have to be a guru to do it, neither do you have to run a site, although if you already have a site, you will do better when it comes to CPA networks’ approval.
Anyway, you will get approved either way, cause you are reading my post which will tell you how.
Peerfly and a few other networks have closed shop this year.
It’s a tough business, Facebook’s cheap ads didn’t help much either, and it got too tough for them. Sad news, but it is what it is.
You can apply to any other network (just do a quick Google search if you don’t know who they are), but I haven’t cut a special deal, like with Peerfly, for you yet. I’ll come and update the article once I have time to talk to someone at another network.
You have to apply to Peerfly first, as they are cool, approve people pretty easy and have offers as good as the top networks (update: they have become one of the top networks through the years).
And yes, this is a referral link up there… you need to be referred by me so you can get approved easier. I’ve rarely had people referred by me not approved, if you use that link, you will be pretty much good to go.
You just need some more information on how to fill your approval application and here you go:
1 Be extremely honest with them, yet find the way to lie to them LOL.
Now you are probably like:
Vladi, What the f..k are you talking about?
Since you are probably new to this, they will not like you for it, which is why you have to color up things a bit.
Although all CPA approval staff have been around forever and know when someone lies, they always let you do it if they like you. And for them to like you, you have to show them you really want to make it happen and will legitimately promote their offers.
They have to approve you since they know most people who look to get involved with CPA marketing are the ones who have no money to invest, or are new to online marketing. So they pick the ones they like, and not just the professionals. The can’t afford approving only seasoned marketers, cause they will run out of business.
And the best way to let them know you are serious about CPA marketing is to call right after you fill out your application.
Once you get approved by Peerfly, you can pretty much get approved everywhere after that… not immediately, though. You need to do some business, make some cash so you have what to show.
2 After you are in, you need to pick the right offer.
There isn’t really a right offer, the quality of an offer (how well it will convert) mainly depends on what traffic you send to it.
However, email/zip submits are known to be the easiest to convert, so they are recommended.
aaaah yes, traffic
The fastest way, as well as cheapest, to get traffic and get things rolling is PPC, and more specifically – 7search PPC.
7search is gone, they’ve been out of business for a while and I hadn’t realized it. Thanks, David, for letting me know… and you can skip to Bing.
You only need 25 bucks to start running campaigns there and their traffic is pretty cool for CPAs, plus you can direct link to your CPA offer.
update: They changed the minimum account activation to $50, so you need $50 to start, however you can find $25, $50 or $100 coupons online, you just need to search for them.
The bad thing, though, is it seems like their traffic has gone more to the bad side lately.
You can blacklist IDs but can’t block domains, so it’s impossible to completely block bot generated traffic.
I guess they were better a few years ago.
If you have the time to tweak your campaigns, you CAN turn them into profit, but you will have to play with them for sure.
Also, you need to ask them to enable the blacklisting feature as it is not automatically enabled.
You can use Bing (their traffic is also cool and cheap), or any other PPC search engine, or paid marketing source if you will. You just have to make sure your ROI is right. CPA marketing is all about the maths.
If you don’t want fast results with cheap paid ads, you can build a Facebook page about a game, people love playing games, they will go register to play, you will make money and everybody would be happy.
Like I said in the comments, I’ve done this with ‘world of tanks‘ and it still brings me money although I haven’t posted anything on the page since forever.
For more traffic ideas read this:
I just added this today, as I’ve been getting shit loads of emails from people seeking personal coaching.
Since I don’t have the time to coach each of you, plus I’m not cheap and know you might be tight on money, I reached out to a friend who runs this forum:
… and asked if they had people that could guide you.
There are a lot of cool folks like me there who post tons of value for free, you can even meet me, I hang out there when I have time.
Doesn’t get much better than this.
You know I’ll always take care of you.
Click the image, go register and by tomorrow you can know even more than I do LOL.
4 Don’t quit after a few negative campaigns.
You will probably have to waste a few dollars until you get used to the system. After that, you will turn that 25 bucks into 50 like it’s a game.
5 When you start making money, reinvest in traffic and leverage PPC until you start making more money.
Don’t rush into spending you money on shit. Buy traffic and send it to those offers since you would already know what works.
6 Go to Peefly right now, don’t waste time over-thinking the simple things.
Thinking is the opposite of acting, and with CPA marketing you don’t need that much thinking.
You need to do what you already read:
– Get approved
– Get cheap (or free) traffic like I showed you
– Send it to a cool offer to make profit.
In about a few months, you can start cashing in big time.
Well, at least big time for most people.
And I really love to say that, so you might have already read it on my blog, but it’s the essence of success:
The Internet is pretty simple, those who complicate things are the ones who don’t know shit. 🙂
