Today I am going to share you about what I know about CPA/CPL.
If you want to make money as a CPA/CPL affiliate, there are 2 methods.
1. Promote directing link via CPC/CPM
2. Building your email list
There is no "best" method. Different methods require different skills.
For method 1, you need to know how to redirect your directing link to your own domain. And also you need to stay focused on one paid traffic source.
When you start advertising on Facebook, you need to know:
- What is CTR (Click through Rate)?
- What is a Bid?
- What is frequency/reach?
- Where can I find the impressions?
- How to claculate the CR (conversion rate)?
- What is the relationship between CTR and the bid?
You will have lots of questions once you join. But I want you to know there is not shortcut. You have to take action and learn from your mistakes (both money & time).
I personally think this method is one kind of investment. The more money you can invest, the more money you can make. But it doesn't take you lots of time, you just need to know, you have to test, test and test until you find a winning campaign. And you can increase the budget to $100/day easily.
Another bad news is, the winning campaign can be dead tomorrow. However, you can create another campaign to test again.
For method 2, it will take a lot more time to develop your email list which involves
- creating your landing page/squeeze page,
- setting up your auto-responder,
- drawing traffic from forum, blog, article, fans page, paid traffic...
- writing your email campaign
After a few months’ preparation, you may see the results.
So this method may take you a lot of time and energy but if you have your email list, you can make solid money for the long term.
One more thing I want to remind on: you should choose different offers.
For Method 1, you better select some offers that have the following features:
- Free Sign Up
- Easy to finish
- No Email Confirmation Required
- No Credit Card Number Required
For Method 2, you can choose high price CPAs, because if you build a good relationship with your subscribers, they are willing to buy something from you again and again.
Again, there is no “The Best". Each Method can make you a lot of money but you have to put your time and energy to learn until you become another Expert!
