As you know, CPA marketing is one of the easiest and most lucrative ways to make money on the Internet. You must belong to a CPA network to have access to the CPA offers so in this Report, you will learn all about CPA networks and then learn exactly how to apply and get accepted to the top networks. Instead of simply giving you a short blueprint for the CPA network application process, we also decided to explain some background information so you can understand why you are doing things instead of doing them with blind faith. The more you understand how everything works, the better prepared you will be to take advantage of the lucrative world of CPA marketing.

Here's a short overview of what we will cover:
  • Role of the CPA network
  • Dangers of CPA networks
  • CPA networks and fraud
  • Role of affiliate managers
  • The CPA application process
  • The affiliate screening process
  • My personal experience
  • Some other brief points

CPA Networks are effectively the middlemen in the process of CPA Marketing. On one side, they negotiate deals with advertisers like eHarmony and Netflix who are looking to buy leads. They also help these advertisers set up their CPA offers. On the other side, they manage all the affiliates in their network who are looking to make a commission by getting traffic to the CPA offers and getting leads for the advertisers. The CPA networks are thus facilitators. They essentially create a CPA offer marketplace for advertisers to find affiliates and affiliates to find advertisers.

CPA networks also take care of the tracking and cash flow between the advertisers and the affiliates. They track which affiliates are earning what commissions and they get money from the advertiser for these leads and then payout the money to the affiliates. The CPA Networks make a small cut of each transaction, and that's how they make their money. So, if Netflix is willing to pay $20 per lead, the CPA network may pay the affiliate $19 per lead and keep $1. You may be asking yourself, "Can the affiliate just bypass the CPA network, work directly with the advertiser, and negotiate a better commission, such as the full $20 instead of the $19?" The answer is both yes and no. If you are a super affiliate pushing a lot of traffic and leads, then the advertiser may work a private deal with you. But, if you are new or don't have the ability to push a lot of traffic, advertisers won't work with individual affiliates. Unless you are doing at least 4 figures a day for one advertiser, you should take the traditional route and run through the CPA network.

Another important point to remember is that there are literally hundreds of CPA networks out there, but many of the smaller networks have far fewer offers and may be less reliable and more risky. It would really be a bummer to earn $5,000 in commissions and the network decides they don't want to pay you or the network goes out of business before paying you. This doesn't happen often, but it can happen. With the development of software platforms in recent years, it is extremely simple to set up a CPA Network, so many pop up all the time. Your best bet is to stick with the larger, more established networks we have provided at the end of this report. They have become large and successful because they do things the right and honest way.

Another interesting fact about many networks that many people aren't aware of, is that the networks themselves are also affiliates. This "proprietary marketing" is when networks drive traffic to their own offers. They aren't always just facilitating transactions; they are also generating them as well!

However, everything isn't all rainbows and butterflies at CPA networks - there is a lot of risk and garbage that networks have to deal with on a regular basis, which is why they have an application process instead of just accepting everybody. As mentioned above, networks deal with the cash flowing from advertisers to affiliates. In the ideal scenario for the CPA Network, they will tell the advertisers how many leads their affiliates generated; they will then receive money for the leads from the advertiser and then pay out the commissions to the affiliates. There is zero risk for the CPA networks here because they are waiting to get money from the advertiser and once received, then they pay out the commission to the affiliates.

However, this isn't always how it works, and networks can take on considerable risk at times because of the timing of cash flow. In many circumstances when there are affiliates generating sizable daily commissions, the affiliates don't want to wait up to a month for the network to collect from the advertiser first. Remember, some affiliates are pushing $20,000 or more a day, so they want to get paid right away.

Imagine this scenario....one of the network's super affiliates earns $5,000 a day in commissions from a particular insurance company CPA offer. Because the affiliate is pushing such large volume, the CPA network decides to wire commissions every day to this affiliate. But, perhaps the insurance company who is running the CPA offer only pays the CPA network every few weeks. In this example, the network is essentially paying the affiliate the $5,000 in commissions every day out of pocket with the expectation that the insurance company will reimburse them in a few weeks. So there is a time period where the network is giving out their own money and must then wait to be reimbursed by the advertiser. But what happens if the insurance company comes back to the CPA network in a few weeks and argues that the leads were terrible or even fraudulent and they aren't paying for them. In this scenario, the CPA network just paid the affiliate $5,000 per day for a few weeks and isn't getting reimbursed by the advertiser. So, there are many scenarios where CPA networks take on considerable risk.

Since there are many CPA marketers who scam and deceive people into filling out their CPA offers, the above scenario is very real and very much a concern for CPA networks, hence the reason they have an application process.


Affiliate Managers at CPA Networks

When you join a CPA network, you will be assigned an affiliate manager, who is sometimes referred to as an account manager. Affiliate managers represent a group of affiliates and they are your point of contact if you have any questions about the network or CPA offers at the network. Your affiliate manager is a great resource because they know all the details about the CPA offers on their network and they know which offers are converting well and which ones aren't. They have access to a wide range of information and data from all the affiliate's campaigns, and therefore it's very important to get to know your affiliate manager and begin a good relationship with them right from day one.

What we normally suggest is to give your affiliate manager a call, text, or instant message as soon as you get accepted to the CPA network. Let them know you just joined their network and wanted to reach out to say hello and introduce yourself. This will get your relationship off to a good start.

I would also suggest communicating with them on a weekly basis to keep communication open and to keep your name in their memory. Remember, your affiliate manager can help you tremendously and if you have a good relationship they may divulge some pretty powerful information or let you promote 'private' CPA offers, which aren't available to the general public. If they become comfortable with you, they can also be more lenient on the rules of the CPA offers.

Your affiliate manager is your ally and a phenomenal resource. Now, let's move on to the actual application process so you can start applying to networks and getting access to CPA offers!


CPA Network Application Process: Part II

Applying and getting accepted into CPA networks is not difficult if you know the right steps to take - and that's the goal of this guide. When I was a complete newbie, I knew very little about CPA marketing when I applied and I got accepted into something like 12 of 13 networks I applied to. And this is with substantially less knowledge about CPA then you learned in the NAME TAKEN OUT IM Boot Camp and without all the knowledge you are learning in this report, never mind everything you will learn on the rest of this site...but more about my experience later. The point is that you shouldn't freak out about the application - it really is super simple!


The Application Process

This report is literally the longest and most comprehensive CPA network application resource I have ever seen. Even the $17 and $27 eBooks about applying to networks don't go into this much detail! What I fear is that because this is long and details everything you need to know, that you will automatically assume the process is hard. Let me assure you, it's not. I just want to give you the most information and most ammunition possible. Remember, our goal is to actually help you make some serious money online, not just go through the motions. And just to ease any fears you may have, I HAVE NEVER heard of anybody who couldn't get into at least two CPA networks.

As we discussed in an earlier section, networks take on a lot of risk by accepting affiliates. Sometimes CPA Networks must pay commissions out of pocket before they receive money from the advertisers so they have financial exposure. If these commissions are "bad leads" such as those from scammers and fraudsters, then the network probably won't get paid from the advertisers, which means they just forfeited all that money. This is why CPA networks have a screening and application process to try and weed out the fraudsters and scammers. There are dozens of scammers and fraudsters trying to get into these networks every day, so this is a very serious concern for the CPA networks. There is common misunderstanding that networks are trying to weed out "newbies" or newer marketers in the screening process. For some networks this may be true, but the vast majority of network care less about how experienced you are and care more about whether you will be doing anything sketchy as an affiliate -- they are weeding out the fraudsters, not the newbies.
What are the networks looking for in the screening process? Well, they are generally looking for affiliates that will promote offers the right way and for affiliates that have a good base understanding of what CPA is.
Now there are certain countries and regions that are known for having rampant fraud, so affiliates from these locations will be scrutinized more in the application process. For example, if you are from Nigeria, it will be more difficult to apply, but it's certainly not impossible. It just means you will need to demonstrate more proof you know what you are doing and will promote the offers the right way. If you are from the United States, the UK, Australia, or any developed nation, you won't have anything to worry about here.

Again, I have never met ANYBODY who hasn't been able to get into at least two CPA networks! Here is a brief rundown of how the application will work:

Step 1: Find a CPA Network You Wish To Join
Step 2: Go to Their Site and Find the Affiliate/Publisher Application
Step 3: Fill Out The Application
Step 4:
Try Reaching Out To the Network (optional, but will help)
Step 5: Phone Screening (sometimes)
Step 6: Once Accepted, Take A Look At All The Possible Offers To Promote Step 7: Make Some Serious Money Promoting The Offers



Step 1: Finding a CPA Network to Join

At the end of this report, we have listed some of the best and most reputable CPA networks there are. Most of the larger networks we recommend have a wide range of CPA Offers so you really only need to belong to 1 or 2 of these networks to start off with. If you want to have even a wider variety of offers, you can certainly belong to more networks though.

If you are looking for a network that carries a specific offer, you can go to one of the CPA offer directories we have for you at the end of this report and find out which networks host the offer.


Step 2: Find Application on the Network

We have conveniently given you the links to the affiliate/publisher applications of a few of our favorite CPA networks at the end of this report. If you need to find the application of a network not listed, just go to the CPA Network's home page and find the affiliate/publisher section and the Join Now or Apply Now directions should be right there.


Step 3: Fill Out the Affiliate/Publisher Applications

The applications of all networks are pretty similar and very simple to fill out. The following are the main pieces of information the networks generally ask for on their applications:

Personal Information: Name, address, email, etc
Tax ID Number: Social Security Number if you are getting checks made out to you. If you are running through a business and want a check made out to your business, you will put in your business EIN number, which is the Tax ID for businesses. If you do not have a Tax ID number, just put in zeros and explain you are from a different country when you reach out to them. Sometimes they have a separate application for affiliates from other countries.
Web Site: If you have a website, it may help to submit it. (discussed later) Experience: Your internet marketing experience
Your Plan: How you will be promoting the CPA offers (PPC, SEO, etc)


Step 4: Try Reaching Out to the Network

Networks look favorably at affiliates who show initiative...it shows they are willing to take action and shows you are probably not a scammer. Most scammers try and slide by the application process unnoticed. By calling the network, this will give them a good feeling you are legitimate. Many networks will reach out to you, but it's a good practice to try reaching out to the network first. Some networks approve/disapprove applications without ever doing a phone screen, but we will go into that in the next step. You can sometimes find a contact phone number at the network's web site you are applying to or you can try doing a Google search. If you can't find a number (some networks don't make it public), try finding an email address of somebody at the network. If you still can't find a phone number, don't worry, this step is an optional step.

When you call or reach out to the network, you should ask to speak with somebody regarding a recent application you submitted. You should call within 24 hours of submitting the application. When you speak to the appropriate person, just explain that you submitted your application and wanted to make sure they received it because you are looking to promote some of their offers. Then just tell them they can reach out to you if they have any questions about the application. In many cases, they will review your application right on the spot and either accept or deny you or ask you a few questions about how you plan to promote their offers. This is super simple stuff. And should take 2 minutes max.

Again, this step is optional, but you will get better results if you take the initiative to do it!


Step 5: Phone Screening

The phone screening is when the network will call you and ask you a few short questions to make sure you aren't doing anything sketchy. Some networks just pick and choose who they decide to call and automatically accept or deny other applications. This is a measure they do to prevent fraudsters. The phone questions shouldn't take more than 2 or 3 minutes to complete, so it's certainly nothing to stress about. I will tell you the exact questions I was asked in the next section and tell you exactly how I answered them, and I got accepted into all but one network when I was just starting in CPA. Here are some common questions:

  • How long have you been promoting CPA offers?
  • How do you plan on promoting the offers?
  • Do you belong to any other networks? If so, which ones?
  • How much traffic do you anticipate generating?
  • How much do you spend daily/weekly/monthly?
  • How did you hear about our network?
  • What kind of offers do you like?
  • What niche of offers are you interested in?


Step 6: Once Accepted - Explore the Offers

Once you get accepted, start looking around to check out the network and the different CPA offers they have. Just explore a bit so when it's time to promote, you know how to navigate the site


Step 7: Make Money

Now that you are accepted, spend some time learning everything there is to learn about traffic generation here at Warrior Forum.


My Experience

I don't remember the exact stats, but out of the 13 networks I applied to, maybe 5 of the networks called to speak with me. Most of the phone screenings were about 2 minutes long, I was only vaguely familiar with CPA marketing, I didn't have a web site, and I still got accepted into all but 1 network. Trust me when I say this special report is far more information than I had when I was applying so you are already ahead of me!

I will admit that when I applied, I inflated certain answers a bit because although networks don't mind accepting newbies, if they think you have some experience, I thought at the time it would help get accepted. Of course honesty is the best policy though! This is how I answered the above questions when I was first starting out and applied to the networks.

How long have you been promoting CPA offers? I have been promoting Clickbank products for about 5 months and have seen decent success so I am looking to start using my experience with Clickbank marketing to get into CPA Marketing. I just started in CPA about 1 month ago.

How do you plan on promoting the offers? I plan on using PPC (pay per click) to drive traffic to a landing page and then having CPA offers on my landing page. I have used review style landing pages with success.

Do you belong to any other networks? If so, which ones? Yes, I have recently been accepted into Copeac but am looking to have a wider range of CPA offers to choose from and that's why I am looking to get accepted into your network. I have heard great things about you.

How much traffic do you anticipate generating? I have my budget right now at $50/day so the amount of traffic depends on the cost of clicks for the keywords I pick. I look to focus on long-tail keywords to get cheaper clicks to start with.

How much do you spend daily/weekly/monthly? Right now I am budgeting $50 a day, but I have been seeing success on one of my weight loss campaigns so I may start increasing my budget when I get my commission checks.

How did you hear about our network?
I heard about your network through Warrior Forum. (You can tell them you heard about it from the Warrior Forum Internet Marketing community!)

What kind of offers do you like? As I said, I've had success with weight loss right now, so I am hoping your network has some good weight loss offers I can test out. I am also running an email submit campaign on one of my sites right now, which is doing okay.

What niche of offers are you interested in? I am looking to test out different niches. I look forward to speaking with my affiliate manager to see what is hot right now on your network so I can test out!
The networks that did call normally asked just 3 or 4 of the above questions. I sounded confident and got accepted on the spot to every network I spoke with on the phone. So it's not that bad guys and gals!


CPA Network Application Process: Part III

In this section we will discuss a few other issues relating to CPA network acceptance. This will include various tips and tricks as well as one of the most common questions relating to CPA network acceptance..."should I submit a site or not?" If you still have any questions after reading this section, please head over to the forums and ask. We are more than happy to help resolve any lingering questions.


To Submit a Site or Not to Submit A Site

"Should I apply with a site?" This is one of the most common questions I get asked regarding CPA network acceptance. When I applied I didn't submit a site at all. I told the network I was promoting on the search engines (PPC) and built landing pages around each offer I promoted. In the spot where it asked for my domain I put www.will-discuss-in-phone-interview.com or www.LandingPageisOfferSpecific.com so they knew I didn't have a main site I would be promoting the CPA offer on, but rather I would build a landing page to promote each offer. The general purpose of the CPA networks wishing to see your domain is just to see if you know what you are doing. If it's your first day in Internet marketing and you don't even know what a domain is, then they probably don't want you in their network. It's more or less just to prove you can make a site and one more barrier to weed out the scammers.

The way I approached it is certainly a possible way around the site rule, but many people say submitting a real site of your own is better, and that's probably true. Luckily, here at NAME TAKEN OUT we show you exactly how to build a WordPress web site and I promise it's super easy so don't worry. There are two types of sites that people generally use. You can either build a company web site like a marketing company site or you can build a sample landing page like one you would use as a pre-sell page for your CPA offer. Alternatively, you can pay to have somebody else create a quick site for you. The videos show you how to build a quick and beautiful site, but this is the basic process:
  • Get a domain and hosting
  • Install Wordpress
  • Install a free theme/skin (Skinpress.com o Free-wp-themes.com o Wpskins.com)
  • Create your own content or buy PLR rights to some content to use  Install privacy policy and contact form plugin

If you go to the Video Training section of NAME TAKEN OUT, you can follow along and we will show you exactly how to build a word press site step-by-step! Once you build one site the above process won't take more than 20 minutes to do from start to finish.
Please note, if you submit somebody else's web site in the application, it's possible the CPA network may ask you to prove you own the domain. They sometimes look at the public Who Is records of web sites people submit and if it doesn't show you as the owner, or if its listed as private, they can ask you to prove ownership by sending them proof of purchase or a receipt. I'm really not sure how often this happens though.

Please remember that the site you submit is more or less a dummy site intended to show the network that you know what you are doing and you have a basic understanding of how things work - which after reading this guide you should! This IS NOT the site that you must promote your CPA offers on. This is a common misunderstanding. You can promote CPA offers on any domain you wish once you are accepted.


Some Other Quick Tips...

Start With Second Tier Networks - Use As Leverage
This is something that can help tremendously in getting into the larger, more established networks. Most people go right to the top and start applying to the top few CPA networks. When they are asked what other CPA networks they have worked with, they say none and then get denied. If you start applying to the 2nd tier networks, it's substantially easier to get accepted and there may be auto- approval so no phone screening. Once you get accepted to one or two of these networks, then you should approach the larger networks. Once you say you already belong to a few networks (even if they are smaller), you are much more likely to get accepted because it gives you instant credibility.

Email@Yoursite.com
If you registered a site, set up an email address at that domain. This is normally free. For example, if your domain is kenster.com, then set up your email as yourname@kenster.com. We go over this in the training videos that show how to set up hosting. This instantly shows you own the site and gives you credibility, as most scammers use free email addresses like Gmail or Hotmail. This is what I did when I applied and may be the reason I got instantly approved by many of the networks.

Confidence - Telephone Verification Process
The most important part of your telephone verification (if you have one) is to be confident and have a full plan to promote the CPA offers. Read through the training material here and come up with a few good strategies. If you show you have a plan of action, it will demonstrate you are serious about promoting their offers! One of the main purposes of the telephone verification process is because they know most scammers and fraudsters like to fly under the radar and not give away their phone numbers, so just the mere fact that they are speaking to you on the phone makes them a little more comfortable you will be promoting the offers the right way. Have a good plan of attack will seal the deal!

Honesty Goes a Long Way
Honesty is the best policy. Some people inflate a little bit when applying and in truth, the networks probably expect it. But, don't go around boasting huge numbers or pretending you are a super affiliate unless you really are. They don't mind having newer marketers in their network but they do mind having liars, so don't say you will be spending $10,000 a day in advertising if you haven't spent a dime yet! Use common sense.

Fraud Swap List
I don't expect anybody here at the NAME TAKEN OUT community to be a fraudster or scammer, but just so you are all aware, network owners know each other and sometimes share information about scammers. If you scam one network, there is a chance you will make it on the "fraud swap list" so other networks know to look out for you. Just do things the right way. There is plenty of money to be made the ethical and honest way so there is no reason to start scamming people.

If You Get Denied
If you get denied, just move onto another network. There are literally hundreds of networks so don't give up you don't get in the first few. I have never heard of anybody who got denied to 20 in a row, but if for some strange reason it happens, just move on. My bet is that most of you will get accepted to at least one of the first few networks you apply to. CPA marketing can be incredibly lucrative for non-quitters, so don't quit, just move onto the next network!

Reapply after a Month or Two
If for some reason you want to go back to a network that previously denied you, just wait a month or two and then reapply. Make sure to call the network or write a note in the application to let them know you already applied and weren't accepted but you've been doing well the last few months and you want to try testing some of their offers. You can tell them which networks you are currently working with and that should help them change their mind about your application.

Referral Helps - Forums
Believe it or not, many members here at NAME TAKEN OUT are affiliate managers or owners of CPA networks. Affiliate managers and owners also visit forums like Warrior Forum, so you can always reach out to them there. As a hint, start a conversation FIRST and after some communication, then tell them you will be applying to their network and if they have any suggestions. They can give you a referral right on the spot or automatically accept your application if they like you. This is yet another weapon to add to your CPA network application toolbox.

If International - Say Most Traffic is US Based
If you happen to be an international affiliate from outside a developing country, making the network aware that your traffic is US based can help a lot. So, put a note in the application or when you speak to the network, make sure to bring it up!

Company Name Works Better
If you started a company to do your Internet marketing, it's probably better to register as a company as opposed to an individual. Of course this only works if you have a company.


Parting Words

Alright, I promise you that the application process isn't terribly difficult. I know this special report is more than you ever probably wanted to know about CPA networks and about getting accepted but I would rather err on the side of giving you too much information than too little information.

Be confident, come up with a plan, start reviewing the information on this site, and then start applying to networks. CPA is a great way to make a lot of money this is the first critical step you must take!

As Always...


May We All Succeed & Prosper,

      Thanks. Great guide. I have a question regarding website and landing page. I m fairly new to CPA. The way I am trying to do is by having a wordpress website and then have custom landing pages for each offer that I am promoting. Each custom page provides a brief information on the offer to the visitors and make them want to know more on the offer by providing a link to the merchant's landing page. Is this how you are presenting the offers? Is this the right way? Appreciate your input. Thanks.

      2nd tier network means they can't draw advertisers themselves, they use links and offers from first tier networks and let their affiliates to promote. They get money from first tier networks and hand down some to their affiliates. Most of the has offer platform networks are 2nd tier or 3rd tier networks.

        A lot of times 2nd tier networks have re-brokered offers but many people refer to 2nd tier networks more broadly as smaller, lesser known networks as well. I have seen both definitions...though in truth, they are pretty similar.

            I am just starting out and applying to some networks and I have tried applying to neverblue as well as calling them and I keep getting an error in the sign up where you verify your phone number saying that my number is not valid which it is, it's a landline and I am in America. So I was wondering if you or anyone else has experienced this or might know what I am doing wrong? Should I also enter my country code like +11then 10 digit phone number?

            And second about doing PPC with CPA. I have made a landing page before for a clickbank product and it was a review/recommendation style site and I put it on adwords and after 2 days of it being live it got shut down by google. I know that google has cracked down a lot on PPC for pages like this so would this be any different with a landing page for a CPA offer?

            Is this how you are doing your PPC with a landing page and then redirecting visitor to the offer page?

            Is PPC your biggest traffic source for CPA currently?


            Thanks for this post.

            That weird about Neverblue. In general I suggest people not start with Neverblue because its one of the tougher networks to get into so I always suggest starting with smaller networks and then piggybacking into the larger networks.

            As for PPC, Google Adwords is extremely tough to do straight CPA campaigns. People are still doing it and digging the offer deeper into the sales funnel but that just dilutes the profits normally. So it's still possible but very tough...particularly with just traditional landers.

            But the smaller PPC engines still are more liberal

            I don't work with them but have heard of them. Not sure what you are asking, but if you apply the regular way and be sure to put a lot of time into your application (since you are from India) that should help a lot!

            Best of luck

        If you're already generating profits with other networks it shouldn't be hard to get accepted by the big networks.

          Yep, networks understand that you will be cross network split testing. Plus if you belong to another network, it gives them more comfort knowing you are legit.

          Of course they know each other and if they check and you don't belong to the other network = bad news

    Hi warriors,
    i'm new in this forum and new in IM. And after looking where i can successed decided to give a try on CPA. Started sending applications to networks and already approved in maxbounty. but have some problems with CPALead. first they denied, after that i wrote them that i will do everything in legit way, and that they don't have to worry. then they wrote me that they can approve me, but they must to know how i will promote, and what will be main forms of traffic generation. so i wrote them back that i planing to send traffic from ppc to my landing page(don't have such jet) and so on. also that will use youtube.
    so the last answer was that they dont suport PPC traffic(don't understand why).
    so at this point i'm a little bit confused. i feel that i'm only from one step to be approved, but don't know what to write back.
    any ideas?

      They may have got scared because you said Youtube...though most incent networks are very lenient in terms of traffic source...compared to traditional networks. I would try speaking with somebody on the phone to you can gauge them and they can gauge you. Perhaps its just mis-communication.

      Thanks!!!

      I would say head to head that CPA is much easier to convert. Sometimes its substantially easier!!! But clickbank has its place...there are lots of micro niches in clickbank that are good to sell, whereas CPA sticks with the very general niches unless you get creative

        Yep, I really feel for people in countries where the a few grapes spoil the bundle. But I always say, if you want it bad enough, you can still have it. Same is true for marketers in Nigeria. It may be tougher to get in, but I'm sure there are plenty of big-time Nigerian CPA and IMers out there.

      Yep...keep in mind that most traffic can be converted from one form to another...like telemarketing traffic can be turned into regular web traffic or email traffic by sending people to your site or your squeeze page

    Great job Kenster. I would also recommend to write something about you to the application platform. In the past, I wrote a few nice sentences about my plans, earning goals and education in IM. I also wrote that I have NO experiences in marketing, only know theory basics. I simply tried to be as honest as possible. And no wonder that I was accepted by more than a half networks I tried to get in without a phone call. And I'm not even an american... central Europe. Just make sure guys that you are honest in the application process and show them that you have a serious interest to be a part of their network.

    Hi Ken,

    Thanks a ton for this wonderful guide about CPA. It is certainly one of the best newbie's easy reference material on understanding CPA, how to apply etc.

    I have a question though. If you have a website that is in a particular niche and you are promoting something that is in a totally different niche or even something in the same niche, would your landing or squeeze page change?

    How do you set this squeeze page up in the first place? Is it some sort of a common form that would suit all campaigns - that is the only part you have left out of this otherwise useful writeup.

    Can you or anybody else from the forum clarify the above point please?

    Thanks again

      Its always good to be honest but a lot of networks get spooked if you say you are doing anything but the primary online traffic sources. They can't track offline traffic so they may wrongly believe that you are saying this just because you plan on doing something funky like DMR or something

      So use your judgment...you will have a better chance at getting in if you go the online route on the app

      For the application process you don't need to change your lander. As for the actual campaign, yes you will. You need to laser target the demographics as much as possible and this will change greatly from niche to niche. Lots of split testing!

      double meta refresh to remove or blank the referrer and hide your traffic tracks. Before you use, be sure you know all the benefits AND downsides of using. Don't want anybody getting in trouble

      I didn't attach because I wrote this a while ago and my top networks is always changing. I would take a look at the forums here at WF and find some of the network owners that frequent here...for the most part, all those networks are proactive and legit!

    Hi Kenster,
    So glad I kept reading until I reached your post. Thanks so much for your detailed info. The comment about listing a website and not having to assume that they expect me to use that particular website is a point not mentioned in other postings that I have read, but sure saves me time deciding which of my sites to submit.
    Now that I have covered your comments, I am ready to apply with much more confidence than I had before reading your post.
    Many thanks,
    Lee

    I am just wondering about the call from CPA Company.
    Maybe I missed that in that thread, so sorry if someone allready pointed this out.

    I like to be "one step before others", and when I was trying to get into some of CPA Networks, I tried to call them, before they called me. Trust me or not, but they love personal contact, since they are sure that they are working with legit and real person, who is doing real business.

    The same thing during the work for them, I was once a week calling my AM just to talk with him what is new in business.

    In my opinion build a good relationship is a must.

    Thanks Kenster, this was great info that actually helped me get into a couple of networks a short time ago.

    I have a question about offline CPA. Some people say their networks allow it and others, including mine, say itʻs not allowed at any stage of marketing. Are you aware of any that do allow whitehat offline marketing? I donʻt plan on using DMR but want to drive offline traffic to a landing page or something legitimate. Any thoughts?

    BTW, when filling in the application what would you recommend people with absolutely zero experience in marketing write?

    Thank you...

      I just sold a site that has all kinds of wordpress tutorials on it, I would have let you join that.

      Hmmm, I mean wordpress is pretty simple, you should just download it and any specific questions, check youtube. That's where I got most of my wordpress training when I was first learning.

      I have not read every post on this thread, but I find that being proactive in the application process seams to make things run more smoothly and gets you accepted much quicker sometimes. If you find an offer on OfferVault that you want to run and have traffic for that niche, I usually call up the AM before I even apply. If the AM you are speaking with is going to be helping you out or assigned to you, it is good to find out how much they know about running your verticals and also to see if your personalities "click here" <-(pun intended). Some AMs just manage affiliates and some AMs are affiliates or were and can help you out much more if need be. My 2 cents!

      Great Thread!

      Cheers!

      Brian

    Thank you so much Kenster! I am making my way through Rags to Riches, and am very grateful for that also!!

    I have a question about traffic: Do you think it will sound completely naive to a CPA network (or is it naive) if I plan on generating traffic by backlinking on relevant forums and blogs, along with article marketing?

    I am new and don't have money to spend/lose on PPC right now (And I would like to have a sense of what I am doing before pursuing this source of traffic).

    I might also mention/pursue social networks and social bookmarking, if that sounds allright? Will heed your advice and focus on one or two methods first... just wondering if the first two methods might turn networks off. I am a newbie and I do want to be honest - but I also don't want to shoot myself in the foot before I even get going

    I found your sixfiguremission site (with the cpa traffic source info) and that was very helpful too!

    So thanks so much!! Can't wait to get back to you with tales of success

    Blessings Kenster!

      Hello Kenster:

      Thank you for openly sharing your Ultimate CPA Network Acceptance Report.

      I've been approved in the past two days by (2) tier-1 CPA networks... one of the networks approved me within 1-hour... but unfortunately I learned (after-the-fact) that their AM's were too overloaded to provide CLASS-A support... unable to accommodate my request for a serious pre-campaign meeting (via phone or skype).

      I have developed proprietary Google Page-One ranking strategies, which I am prepared to implement with a low-cost high-commission type CPA offer to start... such as: JustCloud, MyPC Backup, ZipCloud, BackupGenie, sugarsync, etc.

      Any recommendations and perhaps CPA network referrals from experienced CPA marketers or even networks... would be welcomed and appreciated (credentials available).

      Feel free to PM.

      Positively,

      Alan

      As I tell people, getting into the best of best networks out there is super easy...just do those little tiny extra steps that most people don't do.

      The same is true for being highly successful. One of my favorite quotes is that Highly Successful people simply do the little things that others aren't willing to do.
