CPA marketing is one of the easiest ways to make money on the Internet. The main reason why CPA marketing is more profitable than traditional affiliate marketing is that you can make money without making a sale. As a CPA affiliate, sometimes called a CPA publisher, you can get paid when someone submits their email address. Although the payout is clearly less than if you have made a sale, the conversion rates are much higher.
CPA stands for Cost Per Action and has been around for quite some time. Some people have made very good money by promoting CPA offers. If you can not get any further as a traditional affiliate, CPA marketing is the next step for you. Some experience of Internet marketing is good to have. You can get accepted by some of the CPA networks even if you are a beginner. But if you have a little bit of experience you can join most of the lucrative CPA networks.
Most of the CPA networks have a wide variety of different kinds of CPA offers. As a beginner, it is easy to get confused, you have email submits, ZIP code submits, forms, sales, trials, downloads and PIN submits just to mention the most common types. It is very important that you have a strategy, knowing what offers to focus on and how to promote them. Otherwise, you could be trying various offers forever without really making any money. Or more likely, get discouraged and give up. The the truth is that far from all CPA campaigns will be profitable. In order to make good money as a CPA affiliate you need to be able to drive targeted traffic to the right CPA offers.
