13 replies
Hello,
Am new to cpa marketing and internet marketing in general, I recently joined peerfly and was wondering how people make over $100 a day, I even know someone who makes $700 a day.

How do they do this and what are some of the best paid or free methods of getting traffics to CPA offers

    There is no CPA or CPL miracle method...

    They do this by attracting qualified traffic to their offers.

    The important point is not so much the program (all recognized programs are valid) but how to conquer traffic and convert that traffic.

    • Thanks for your swift response.
      I have over 800 visitors to my page everyday and yesterday I got 37 unique clicks on peerfly but no leads nor conversions.

  • How are the conversions made, do I need to wait for some days or is real time?

    On Peerfly? I find the free offers are the best. Just be sure that you're pushing quality offers and not linking directly from your page.

    Send the traffic like so:

    page > blog post > offer landing page.

    Use contextual links (link to the offers by way of text in your blog posts).

    I talk quite a lot on the subject here on WF. Perhaps have a dig around and branch out to other Warriors. You'll find plenty of methods.

    All the best!

    • How do you know quality offers, is it by cr or EPC?

        You get a feel for this with experience. Bad offers can still have very high EPC (in fact, many of them tend to). Without experience, you need to read their consumer reviews online (not affiliate reviews), sign up to them (not through your own links and be sure to delete cookies), and just ask yourself if the lander looks professional, if the service seems to genuinely solve problems. The reason you want a quality offer is so than people trust you and you're not messing people about. We've all joined bad offers before and it sucks. So part of being an IMer is sort of being in quality control mode. Part of the service you offer the consumer is making sure that they're getting a good deal - even on a free offer.

        Cheers,

        Tom

  • Yes this is exactly how my traffic is being distributed.
    Search Engine > blog post > offer landing page

    99% of my traffic are from bing, Google and Yahoo. I don't do ads just regular SEO which was done by an expert on fiverr, but still I get clicks but no leads.
    Although I think most of the clicks are bots, recently I installed a bot detecting software on my site to see if my suspicions were correct and it detected 8 scrapping bots.

      It's possible the chap on Fiverr is sending you bot traffic to justify his payment and future payments. However, other side of the coin, perhaps you're just not sending enough traffic or doing enough to convert what you have. I tend to average an EPC of $1.50 to $3.50 on free traffic and I'm dealing in 6 and 7 figure traffic volumes. The fact that you've taken action and you're here asking questions is brilliant. (You're ahead of the curve.) What I'd recommend now is not hiring any more SEO gigs off Fiverr. Instead, learn traffic generation and apply what you learn. I talk about it quite a lot on WF, so perhaps check out my posts, and we have a bunch of other guys here who are big into traffic. But you also want to think conversions. No point having oodles of traffic without that. I talk about that, too, and then you have someone like Jason Kanigan, who's an authority on sales and conversions.

      You ask for methods in your post. It really depends on your skills, interests, and experience. I can tell you that YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter are currently doing very well for me, in terms of free traffic generation.

      Hope some of that helps!

      Cheers,

      Tom

      • Thanks,
        I tried clicking on your profile name but it didn't open your profile so I did a search and got an answer you wrote about using YouTube videos.
        I haven't tried social media traffics before but will be given it a try today.

        Thanks once again

    I've been promoting affiliate / CPA offers for over 17 years.

    I heavily promote PPL (pay per lead...lead generation) offers. This is because there is no credit card / purchase required to complete an offer. All a user has to do is fill out a form, so conversion rates are typically much higher compared to offers that require a sale to be made.

    I favor offers that have a make, get or save money benefit to them, as they have overall worked the best. They also tend to have the greatest mass appeal (will be of interest to a large general audience), so the potential exists to produce high volume and they are fairly easy to cross promote on the back-end.

    Some of the verticals (niches) I have done extremely well with are: education, insurance, loans, debt, credit, mortgage, assistance, discount offers, homeowner offers, etc...

    The bulk of the PPL offers that I promote pay $20-$40 per lead, but I also promote offers that pay more and less. You don't want to get too caught up on what an offer pays because how well it converts is just as important. For example, if you have an offer that pays $9, but if it converts at 2X or more of a $20 offer, then it will perform about the same or possibly better. At the same time, if you have an offer that pays $90 and it converts poorly, it may not even be worth promoting.

    I have also done just as good with dating website sign-ups and pretty good with free trial + S/H offers. I also promote a very limited number of offers that are straight sales. However, in addition to having mass appeal I also look for one of the following...

    1) The product is new and/or novel-unique and you can't purchase it locally or even something similar. I don't waste my time with it once something similar shows up in Walmart.

    2) The buyer can truly get what is being offered at a decent discount.

    3) Solves a house is on fire type problem.

    However, I mainly promote non-PPL offers on the backend.

    Bottom line, it's far easier to get someone fill out a short form than to get them to pull out their credit card and make a purchase. So why struggle with trying to sell this or that, when you can provide free information that users want/need and get paid well doing it.

    I drive traffic and build responsive email lists using fresh / targeted 3rd party email data and generating real-time, co-reg leads.

    3rd party data is email leads of users that have shown an interest in a specific PPL niche or offer and have given permission to receive messages from third parties. You get the opt-in record of each user and it's 100% can-spam compliant.

    Co-reg is simply where I place an ad for a specific PPL offer on a co-registration network and their publishers display it at the time a user is signing up with them and can request more info about my offer. When a user requests more info their contact info is then automatically imported into my ESP account and they are sent a message regarding the offer. Which I pay on a per lead basis.

    So with the above, I am getting fresh / targeted leads specifically for the PPL offers I'm promoting. However, they are not typically as responsive as a high-quality opt-in list that you build yourself. So to compensate for this you need to work with higher volume. This is not a big deal since the cost is much cheaper and highly scalable compared to traditional list building methods.

    When mailing, you want to skim off the top any fast-track conversions and then for long-term success, you want to always be collecting your opens / clickers, segmenting and removing unresponsive users...converting the leads from quantity to quality and into responsive lists. Which you can then also cross-promote other offers on the back-end.

    So basically the real reason I promote PPL offers because they provide the path of least resistance to generating conversions/$$$ and converting the data into cash producing assets.

    There's actually more to it than it sounds, but done right it can be extremely profitable. Everyone that I know that is in the business and knows what they are doing, for the most part, does 6-7 figures. While that's a huge range, much comes down to one's ability to scale and effectively build / manage the infrastructure needed to scale.

    Something to think about.

    You pretty much want to master a niche initially and a traffic source.
    Overall you may use a landing page to send traffic to the affiliate offer.
    I have used Instagram as far as free traffic. Scaling that free traffic may be hard. Bingads, Facebook, pop traffic are all traffic sources that have worked.

    While there is no best, I would look at ppc or ppv to start out.

    Understand who is the visitor coming to your site and match the offer from cpa network that would complement them. If I am male 30 yr old, I aint interested in skin care but bodybuilding and ripped abs, sure give that to me...


    Gotcha?
