I’ve seen some people really need a step-by-step guide on how to get
approved by CPA networks.
When I was first started with affiliate marketing, I didn’t even have a
website which CPA networks “love” to see. Yet I’ve been approved by
practically every major CPA network that I have applied to.
Read and apply my steps, you shouldn’t have a problem getting approved
by most of the networks you apply to.
Sign Up With CPA Networks
For every CPA networks, you need to show them a decent website to get
approved. It MUST be you own site, a few networks will require you to
show ownership of your website before they’ll approve your application.
My friend received this message from Azoogle when he applied:
“If your domain(s) are privately registered, you will need to email us a
receipt from your domain registrar or a screenshot of your online
management panel—something showing the domain name and your name
and address—so that we can verify ownership.....”
As long as it’s your own website, it could be a totally unrelated website
to show them, this doesn't matter.
When I was first started, I showed them my personal website. I used
that “unrelated’ site to apply to a few networks and get approved
without any problems.
When you fill out the affiliate application form, there is usually a field
where you can put any message for the administrators who will review
and approve your application.
Tell them you’re going to run PPC direct linking so your website isn’t
really all that applicable.
Make it sound like you’re a seasoned CPA marketer. Tell them you’re
already with a few other networks and someone said something good
about them, so you want to try out their offers.
Build a Site To Show CPA Networks
If you don’t have a site and you’re too lazy to build one from scratch,
there is a short cut.
I've a little trick where you get to set up a professional website in 5
It’s simple and fast.
You download a free script, upload it to your hosting, a few clicks more
and you're done. It gives you a great site that most networks "love".
Last year, I tried this with Azoogle and I was approved in 24 hours!
If you need this little script, pm me and I'll send it to you free. For this
method to work, you need to get a domain name and get it hosted.
(Edit: guys, the script doesn't work anymore to get you approved in 2010.
Like I mentioned in this thread, one day it'll just get saturated, so the
best option is to build a unique blog (using WP), and order some PLR
articles to build up content.)
Call CPA Networks for Fast Approval
After you’ve sent in your application, you should receive their reply in
a short while.
Normally they’ll send a message to you through an autoresponder. Read
their message, find their phone number and call them immediately.
This is what you need to say over the phone:
“Hi, I’ve just signed up as an affiliate, and I want to talk to an affiliate
manager to get me approved”
When you’re on the line with an Affiliate Manager, tell him/her you’ve just
sent in your application and you would appreciate if he can get you
approved as soon as possible so that you can send traffic.
They might ask you a few simple questions like how did you find them, how
do you drive traffic, what offers do you plan to run with them etc....
Tell them your fellow members from Warrior Forum recommend them. A
couple of members there are having some success with their offers and
you’re planning to test some of those offers with your traffic.
Tell them you’re a ppc marketer and you do direct to merchant pay per clicks.
This is sufficient to “convince” them you know your stuff and to get you
