    It's Cost Per Action which means that if you promote a cpa offer and people take the action that is required (usualy you should make them subscribe on a list) you will get paid...

    Here's a simple example.

    1. You advertise a dating offer on Facebook which costs you $0.50 per click
    2. A Facebook user sees your ad and clicks on it
    3. Your ad redirects them to a dating website
    4. The Facebook user enters their details eg name, email, phone
    5. You get paid $3 for bringing a new lead to the dating company

    So your profit is $2.50 ($3 less $0.50 Facebook cost per click)

    Ok, I missed out a lot of details on Facebook campaigns, tracking and demographics research but that is essentially how it works.

    You get paid when someone completes an action to fill in the email address for example.

    You need to pay for the advertising costs and as long as you are earning more than what you pay out, that's your net profits.

    Hope that helps!

        Yep, CPA means cost per action. That action can be anything really, someone filling out a form, someone buying a product, someone filling out a survey, someone entering their email in a form, there's several "actions" that can be paid for.

        Your job is to send traffic to the CPA offers and get paid a commission in return when the action is complete. There's CPA networks out there that provide the offers you can run and there's various forms of traffic generation you can use.

        CPA marketing is a big world and before diving in, I'd do a little research on what works and what doesn't.

    Hi,

    It seems a cool way to look at facebook is start a like page (or buy one with lots of likes if you have the cash). With a like page you can use html code.

    Which means you can set links up to your CPA sales page without a big messy url.
    people click say ''Skincream'' instead of
    ''ht tp://skincream.com/offer/hsdghangel/15265''

    You can put long links straight on facebook walls and in messages but its likely to disregarded as spam.

    The networks that run CPA's are quite hardcore in their requirements.
    They will want to know your plan and what you are going to do for them.

    best of luck,

    JosephPeter ''its all about the list''

    Anything is possible though if you keep your eyes on the prize.

    At first you have to chose some good CPA sites then promote through Facebook. If you want to earn money from CPA program first you have to study some good ebook about CPA.

    Some people will tell you CPA is Cost Per Acquisition or Action but the true meaning of CPA is Certified Public Accountant. Are you planning to be an accountant? It's a tough game man.
