The Secret to Making Money with CPA networks

Posted on October 19, 2006 in Affiliate Tips  

Any one that visits any of the webmaster forums out there has seen some newbie or even someone with some experience that is frustrated post; what is the secret? It’s not rocket science so I will share the secret to my CPA success in today’s article.

Secret #1:

Don’t listen to the nay sayers. No matter what leap of faith you take or what field you try to explore within any online marketing people will always tell you, you can’t do it or it’s to saturated. DON’T listen to them….. Why….  Because if you are creative enough there is always room for you to make money and good money at that.

Secret #2:

Test, Test, Test. Many people get into the CPA game and lose $100 and then give up or even lose $1,000’s and then give up. The Key is to test, don’t jump all in give it time do small trials until you find what works. Once you find out what works multiple it to other sites or landing pages in that field or another offer.

Secret #3:

Check out the competition. Many people get gung-ho and go all in throw up an I-frame landing page and just wait for the money to roll in. I am not going to lie. Sometimes you will get lucky and that will work. But 90% of the time you need a good landing page. I don’t want you to go and copy people’s landing page but change the color… but use the look and feel of there pages and make your own unique one. 

Secret #4:

When the money comes in don’t blow it all. I have heard too many stories of people that made it big made $40K in one month spent it all then 3 months later are struggling to make $1K as the offer they were promoting ended or there success in that field was just short lived. Most CPA offers can remain steady for some time but some you have to get the money while the getting is good. So save some of that money so that when the rough times hit you still have money to do the first 3 secrets again.

I hope yall have found this article informative. If you have a specific question or area of CPA promotion, networks (Maxbounty, Azoogle, CPA Empire, HydraMedia) or offers you would want me to cover just leave a comment.  As always I recommend all of my Top 5 CPA Networks.

    Reading your blog posts and some others i have an impression that it makes sense to promote CPA offers with PPC (AdWords, Yahoo! and MSN AdCenter) primarily and in ceratin niches only (financial, ringtones and a few others).

    Do you agree?

    Actually the best is FREE traffic that you don’t pay for. as far a search PPC promotion any offer can be promoted in this manner and make money you just have to be creative enough to get cheap clicks and high converts :) While the profit margin may not be as high for cheaper payout offers… profit is profit..

    I just started with CPA and I’m getting my butt kicked. I’m trying to generate my traffic purely through PPC and most days end up in the red. Are you generating most of your “free traffic” using seo (organic search listings)?
