What's The Best Way To Start Earning Income With CPA Offers?

by KateD 26 replies
Hi...

I'm quite familiar with affiliate sales and Adsense, but I haven't really done too much with CPA offers. But I am definitely interested in this strategy.

I have done some research on the forum and have gathered bits and pieces of info. But nothing that I can build on into a successful system.

So my question is: what's the best way to learn about CPA offers and use that knowledge to successfully make a consistent amount of income?


Is there an ebook or guide that can explain the basics and go into depth with the possibilities of CPA offers?

I work really well with systems and checklists. Is there a product that help me by giving a step by step overview?

What about landing pages? I have read a few people talking about creating/purchasing effective landing pages. Where can I get those?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

    Seriously (without the blatant affiliate program promotion), can someone give me some direction in this area?

    I can see the income potential there. Like I said, I am trying different things right now. But those things just aren't resulting in any revenue.

    Any guidance?

    Thanks.

    I am curious about this as well, i have a mortgage site that gets about 150 visitors a day and after my recent adsense ban i have been searching for other ways for it to bring in money.

    Do CPA banners ads or text links work or do they have very low conversions compared to a landing page?

      The way I work with CPA offers is I choose ones where I think I can get repeat business. I always have my own landing page with optin.

      I then send offers to that list.

      As an example, let us say you have created a site for beauty products. There is always an interest in the next new cream, or beauty offer.

      The long term benefit of a list far outweighs just sending traffic to the merchants landing page for a one time sale.

      I'm not sure about conversion rates just yet, but I have seen a ton of CPA offers in the mortgage and loan niches. You should definitely consoder it.

      I read your blog, so I know you switched over to affiliate promotions once your Adsense account was deactivativated.

      CPA might be your way to earn even more than selling affiliate programs and Adsense.

      Honestly, if you sign up to a CPA heavy network, their AMs will tell you everything you need to know. Or they should at any rate as it's in their best interests as they're getting commissions & bonuses from you performance.
      Harvey,

      Thanks for the post. I have been looking on the Warrior Forum and DP for additonal information. Like I said in an earlier post, I am gathering bits and pices of knowledge, but I was hoping to find an ebook that could go into details about all of the specifics.

      Of the ebooks that I do find for sale, I'd say that 80% of them dealt with Blackhat methods.

      All that being said, I know that I learn best by taking action.

      So while I continue to learn more about CPAs, I'm still going to take steps.

      I have found a decent looking CPA offer that I would like to promote. Its an Email Submit offer. SO basically for getting people to submit their email address, I get paid a commission of $1.50.

      I have already developed a large list of keyword phrases associated with this CPA. Today I should have the blog done that I'm promoting the CPA offer on.

      $1.50 may not seem like a lot. But here's my thinking:

      All the person has to do is submit their email address for a chance to win a few hundred dollars in purchases (something that this niche really needs anyway).

      So if I'm getting 100 people per day to that offer, I'm confident that 10% of them will take the few seconds to submit their email address. So that would be $15 per day.

      Now, if I can get the traffic up to say about 1000 visitors a day, then I should be able to generate $150 in lead income.

      Is my understanding of this accurate? I know that 10% conversion seems high, but if the person just needs to submit their email to potentially get something for free, I think 10% would be realistic.

      Any feedback on my thinking would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

        Hi Kate,

        do you want to use PPC to promote your blog?
        If you get $15 out of 100 visitors (conversion rate 10%, wow) than you would break even
        if you pay not more than $0.15 per click.
        it might be not easy to get a CPC of $0.15.

        good luck,
        Konja

          That's another thing I noticed. Most guides talk about using PPC for CPAs. Why wouldn't article marketing work with them?

            Kate, no reason it would not work with article marketing at all, just be sure the article is more generic. What I mean is, email submits come and go, if you write about a specific offer, it may not be around next month, or even next week. Other than that, its a great idea, and no reason you should not try it. Just don't give away all your plans

            that's right, article marketing works as well.
            But then it might take some time to get 1000 visitors a day.

            btw, some keywords that are very competitive in PPC have very little competition in organic search results. I have set up a blog with exactly 2 (!) posts targeting 2 keywords in the credit niche (very competitive in PPC), did only basic promotion and this blog made 140 € with a CPA offer (equals something like $200) within a couple of months (with almost zero work, it would do a lot better if I put more work in it).

        Hi....

        I mean a landing page that you send visitors and try to get them to click on the CPA promotion?

        And by "good" I mean one that converts well (one that gets a high percentage of people to go on and visit the CPA promotion).

        KateD

        P.S. I stayed up late last night creating a landing page for this Email Submit CPA offer I want to promote. I get paid $1.50 each time someone submits their email address (and its for a change to get $500 worth of products). I think it looks good (very unique from your typical landing page) but I won't know if it converts well into I send some traffic to it.

        I am having a ghostwriter create 10 articles for this promotion right now. We'll see what happens.

          Kate, great so see you getting into this.

          If you are going to create a landing page for getting people to email or zip submits, the important thing is to get them to take action. One the most popular ways to do this is with a simple " vote " landing page. Take a current topic or high traffic term, it could be " is Britney Spears still hot " vote yes or no.

          As an example of a page for this type of thing check this one, copy and paste into your browser( sorry too new here to make this a hyper link ! ) Mike Vick Survey - Michael Vick is the Atlanta Falcons Quarterback Dogfighting and Indicted for Running Dog Fights

          It is old but will give you the idea. I would suggest you just put your own creative slant on this idea. If you are getting articles written to help with this, that is great, just get those vote buttons in there !. You objective is to move them on to the offer.

          Hope this helps. I may have a couple of old case studies on this, so if your interested, send me a pm.

          Dave

            This is considered an incentive in the eyes of most networks now.. and they are really cracking down on incentivizable offers, its getting harder and harder to do them anymore.

    Speaking of CPA's and list building... Does anyone know how to grab the prospect's info then auto submit it to the CPA and re-direct them at the same time? Making the whole thing seamless?

    Dave,

    Thanks for the example of the landing page. Yeah, the one I'm promoting has something very similar. Basically a choice between 2 things that really have no real value (like the Vick example) and submitting their email for a gift certificate.

    At some point I'm going to add PPC. So I'm going to have to be extra creative to get as much conversion as possible from the traffic I will get initially.

    If you have an case studies, I would LOVE to see the. I really like going through case studies (when they take knowledge, act on it, and document the process and results).

    Thanks again.
