Default Best way to learn about CPA ??

Hi guys,

I've been involved in affiliate-type marketing forever, but never tried doing CPA.

How or where would I learn about the best way to tackle the CPA market? Again, I'm not a total newbie, just new to CPA.

Any help or assistance (without trying to sell me an info-book ) would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Join some affiliate networks. NeverBlue, MaxBounty, Conver2Media, ect...

Just search around the forums till you find a method or traffic source you like.

Then keep testing it until you have success, and be committed to it.

Plenty of Fish Ads or "POF" is a great starting traffic source for beginners. It helps you learn a lot of fundamentals.

Not sure why people say "CPA" it's all just selling other people's stuff for a commission.



There's lots of good courses out there though. Check out Kensters stuff or Chad from Traffic black book.

1. Join the CPA fix
2. Follow Kenster's posts

3. Google a lot about CPA and learn how to sort quality posts from hype and so called "Gurus". You should learn enough about how to sort it, with first two tips, above

Good place to learn is right here on the forum. Good folks to learn from are Kenster, Mike Morgan, and several others.

Several good ebooks in the WSO section too -- but you no wanna any info book

Now, truthfully, succeeding in cpa marketing isn't rocket science. It's like any other marketing... you have to test and track everything: Offers, Landing Pages, Marketing Venues, Lists, Copy, etc.

I think the biggest problem for most is getting traffic. Which is why I'd recommend getting started with either CPV or PPC if you can afford to. Results are fast... win or lose

I agree with the previous posters to this thread. There are many good threads on CPA marketing in this forum. You can search for CPA on Google (as suggested by others) and also check out EzineArticles. Joining a CPA network can be tricky but you might want to try MaxBounty and PeerFly which are always willing to take on new publishers. They also have some top notch training.

If you are planning on PPC traffic for CPA then it can be done pretty fast with the available resources on this forum.

For a fastest action plan based guide search for Kenster posts on this forum. There are two parts and he explains clearly the process.

The most important thing, CPA is something that has be learned by practice. You can pick up kensters thread and start building a campaign.

Note: Keep the budget on the campaigns low if you are going with PPC.

This is a good advice.

Get some materials to learn the basics, but always focus on your own campaigns and learn from your own experiences. This is the fastest way to become a successful internet marketer.

I would suggest you to learn about the PPC and PPV traffic sources, it's not really hard to learn about what is CPA and how to promote it.

Sorry for the delay in getting back to this post, I got pulled in another direction.

I probably should have been more specific -- I certainly know what CPA is, and I've belonged to most CPA networks since many of them started... but I guess I need to learn more about how to properly promote them via PPC. Any thoughts on this?

Also, what "type" of product or program would you personally say is best to promote via PPC?

Lastly, for Kenster: You seem be a rock star around here. Kudos to you. Please PM me if you have any personal words of wisdom for an old affiliate guy that needs to re-energize with something new.

Thanks again!

Thanks,

I would strongly suggest not direct linking...it significantly limits your traffic potential while simultaneously builds a short term income!

Many of the biggest traffic sources make it difficult or hard to direct link or it simply isn't the best way to maximize the LV of the prospect. I'm not saying you can't do it, I'm just saying it's better to go the non direct-arbitrage route if possible...in most cases that is!

It's both! LOL

Direct linking severely limits your creativity and ability to use angles.

To sum it up...

Direct Linking = Beginner CPA Marketer or
Simple/Easy Campaign that doesn't require anything else.

Building custom landing pages = Intermediate to Pro CPA Marketer or
Necessary due to offer type and/or traffic source

So, it all depends on the specific situation or circumstance.
