1. Don't be scared
Remeber that affiliate managers and CPA Networks work to get both: advertisers and publishers. What does it mean? It means that they want YOU to be a part of their Network.
2. Be honest
Ne honest about your goal and your experience. In some cases it's much MORE better to tell that you're a newbie than to lie that you're very experienced.
3. Be enthusiastic
After you signed up and your application is received. Don't be scraed and immediately call/send email them. Just show that you really want to work with them!
There are some general topics about getting accepted to CPA Networks:
If you have a website - type it in. If it's just a wordpress blog - do it.
Useful tip: If there are just few posts on your blog or you just created a website. Try to find a Corporate/Business theme and install it. I always use this one:
Nova WordPress Theme | Elegant Themes
2. Your marketing experience
In general there are 2 types: using FREE traffic and driving PAID traffic. Before you begind to work with - they always ask what type of traffic do you prefer?
So it's necessary to find the type of traffic you love and can focus on. The easiest PAID traffic (in my opinion) is PPV (CPV). However it's not so easy to work with PPV.
So they ask these questions:
- What type of traffic do you prefer?
- What offers/niches do you like?
***I always answer that I know SEO (onsite and offsite). And I like to use it for long term prospective. But for short term and quick results - I like PPV and sometimes Banners.***
I alwas say this and it's true
In some cases they ask you to show your creatives (banners or landing pages). When I said that I like PPV - I was asked to show my creatives and I did it.
So, don't be scared! Just choose networks you like and apply. Remeber that sometimes you can be denied and it's not a problem. Just apply again and again to this network.
It was the first network I applied. I had no experience but I told that I'm good at SEO and also planning to work with PPV and I was approved. They called me from Canada.
No problem The same strategy.
This Network is great for Media Buys and PPV. Asked where did I hear about them? I asked that my friends recommended me.
5. EWA (ewanetwork.com)
This Network is private network but it's not so HARD to get accepted. I just sent them email and they didn't call. And approved me.
Tip: If you want to get accepted in EWA:
- You can find a referrer
- Or you can contact Ryan Eagle and ask for help - he will help you.
Important note: I'm not from US or Canada. I'm an "international affiliate". That's why in most cases I was communicating using: Email and AIM.
I hope it will help you.
Just remeber - don't be scared. CPA Network want to work with you. Start with Maxbounty (as I listed) and everything will be fine.
All my tips are according to my experience and courses where I got this information. As I told sometimes you can be denied - I was denied by NeverBlue
