Is all CPA like this?

14 replies
I don't want to sound holier-than-thou, but having signed up to Peerfly and Clicksure, I'm really frustrated that so many offers out there are well out of my comfort zone. I really don't want to promote:
+ Adult offers
+ Homeopathic or unproven BS herbal "therapies"
+ Payday loans and credit cards
+ Products with overwhelmingly negative reviews on WF
+ Spyware, malware
+ Dating sites (nothing wrong with them per se, but I just don't want to do it)

..so that's ruled out a massive chunk.

If that's what you do, that's your choice; all I'm saying is that I personally don't want to promote them.

So does my squeamishness rule out CPA for me, or are there other warriors out there with the same kind of attitude successfully promoting CPA, and if so, can you give me some tips?

(I can see the reaction now: "Welcome to CPA - if you don't like it, don't do it" - but is there another way?)

    So, what do you want to promote? There are thousands of other fantastic CPA offers available. On PeerFly, you may want to take a look at our games and As Seen on TV products for example.

    You took out a massive chunk of offers, but there's still plenty available

    Try commission junction or linkshare. Their offers are probably more your speed.

    Yes, you could check out Commision Junction or Linkshare.

    Also I would recommend these types of offers (all found on Peerfly, and other CPA Netwokrs)...

    Insurance
    Education / Scholarships
    Home Improvement
    Legal
    Real Estate
    Travel Offers
    Technology Things (Hosting, Back-Up, ect.)

    Do any of those hold you interest?

        We have a range of offers converting well for us right now. Here are our top converters as of this morning:



        We're in the process of adding an additional "Incent Peer" to PeerFly that will include our incentive offers as well as our content locker. You can see a complete list of our top converting offers (including incent) at:

        I'll be updating PeerFlyOffers.com over the next week or so to allow you to see either incent/traditional CPA or both

      I definitely agree with Greedy, there are many CPA networks to promote out there, you just have to find something that interest you.

    Great response Greedy. There are definitely a ton of different areas you can look into. As said you could very well checkout CJ or Linkshare but I think at this point your best bet would be reaching out your AM(s) and speaking to them directly. I'm sure Peerfly has something for you.

    Why not visit odigger.com or offervault.com and start doing some searches for what you're interested in. You might be surprised on how many different types of offers exist.

    I agree that there are plenty of CPA offers that I would never touch. I mostly do lead generation for financial products, but only products that I think are sound (insurances, loans with reasonable conditions/rates), not horrible loans like payday loans and logbook loans. Let me know if you are interested in CPA for proper financial products in the UK and I can send you in the right direction.

    I mentor in CPA marketing, especially lead generation. PM me for info.

    There are tons of opportunities with CPA that don't involve the markets you mentioned. You may want to try promoting brokerage accounts, weight loss, fitness, energy, electronics and apparel. Either way, log into Offervault, Linkshare, or Commission Junction and browse through their offers. If you're not that into CPA...no sweat. I really like selling physical products and doing e-commerce sites. The notion that those areas are saturated are way off. There is a ton of growth in those areas as long as you are able to find the markets and generate traffic. The mistake people make is thinking that internet marketing is unlike offline business when in fact it isn't. Building a business is about identifying opportunities, find creative and efficient ways to provide value and capitalizing on those markets. It's not some esoteric secret formula that the snake oil salesman want to sell you. Anyway, you can do some research and reach your own conclusions.
