You read this article so whether you plan to get into online money-making and marketing or you look for more instruments, sources, and ideas in case you’re a seasoned marketer or a webmaster. First things first: let’s see what CPA marketing is and how it differs from affiliate marketing. Next, we’ll describe major traffic sources for CPA offers’ promotion and then take a good look at some CPA Networks considering their advantages and disadvantages in key aspects.
As the name implies CPA (‘Cost per Action’) marketing is all about getting a specific action from the traffic. Well, action can be filling up a form, submitting an e-mail or a phone number, downloading a file, etc. In other words, you’re paid when you drive traffic to a specific task. Once your traffic converts into leads, further conversion into sales will be out of your mission. You are paid for the lead. Usually, your income may vary between $0.50 and $20 per lead. Though, there are high-paying offers (usually they involve entering credit card data) that allow you to earn $50 and more. Sounds pretty alluring, right?
If you’re familiar with affiliate marketing you should know that it means sales. In CPA marketing you make money from a particular action, such as downloading an app, promoting free trials, pin submitting and so on. Let’s state the obvious: people don’t like spending money and they are much less suspicious about actions that do not involve their credit cards.
So in some respects making money via CPA marketing is easier than with affiliate marketing. Important: with CPA networks you get paid faster than in case of affiliate marketing. One more positive point – in affiliate marketing you’re on your own whereas CPA networks provide you with an affiliate manager who assists with choosing the best offer and advises on promotion methods.
Traffic is the key aspect of both CPA marketing and affiliate marketing. Some CPA offers can be limited to specific GEO locations or traffic sources; therefore, it’s important to check all the details of the offer.
So, the major part of your time will be spent on generating traffic. To be really successful you need to remember that we, online marketers, know where to get high-quality traffic, but we can never guarantee the results. Why? Because our success depends on several factors, such as quality of your landing page (both images and text), GEO, language, age and gender of your targeted audience, the popularity of the topic, etc. That is why it is important not to go blind but to test. Testing allows improving the efficiency of your campaign and, in many cases, save some money.
There are numerous methods and traffic sources to promote CPA offers. Let’s see some of them below.
A marketer took advantage of targeted Facebook ads and generated traffic to Inflamaya gel offer from Everad.
Filters: men and women, 30+. Ads were published only in Facebook newsfeed. Ads costs during 1.5 week — $4 615; earnings from sales — $15 720; profit — $11 105 (240%).
CPA networks promote various CPA offers with the help of marketers and webmasters. The coolest thing about CPA networks is that they guide you through various offers: latest offers, highest converting offers, top offers, and so on. It’s a win-win option because CPA networks want to make money, so they are interested in your success as well.
Attention: CPA networks always need marketers more than marketers need them. Always be confident, specify verticals you’re interested in, and what traffic sources you’ve worked with. Beginners, don’t lose hope! These are several CPA networks that give instant approvals: ClickDealer, CPAGrip, CPAfull, AdscendMedia, Convert2Media, AdworkMedia, etc.
Anyway, before joining a network check all the details related to the offer (landing page, GEO, traffic sources, and payout rates).

Besides being one of the traffic sources, forums are a great source of information and experience exchange too.

And don’t forget Reddit, r/SEO, a very popular and active place for marketers and SEOs where all your questions will be answered.
