    Did they call you? Or you didn't answer phone call from them? The most common reason why most people were rejected is because they were not answering phone call. You can even call them, asking them how your application is going on. Even though there are some CPA network require people with experience, but many networks out there are are doing this only because their main concern is whether you are legit person or not. But this might not always be the case because there are many people out there still get accepted even without phone call.

      Nope i did not get any calls.Anyway linkshare replied few moments back and said the website is not good enough .So it seems like a optin page website is a no go when applying for a network.

      So should i not give a website name at all while filling the form?

    You have to have a plan to promote offers. Always, go to affpaying.com and find affiliate managers of all metworks. Talk to them, share how you want to promote offers. If they like, ask if you apply whether they will accept you or not.

    Mention the name of that manager in the application. It helped me a lot.

    However, in cases like PeerFly. I had the worst experience ever. They will only accept you if you have earned $500 from their preferred networks. This seemed funny to me.

    I am mentoring a few guys for video marketing to promote, they got accepted in PeerFly a long ago, but when I applied they rejected me.

    In this case, try MaxBounty. They are awesome. Specially the affiliate managers and Joe Ferguson. I love them

    Initially, you may try CPAlead, they will accept you quickly.

    Be honest in your application and straightforward. Let them know how you want to promote offers. That’s i!

    Like Danzozafar said, reach out to the affiliate managers of the network you are tryinh to get in and let them know about your promotion methods.
    Just be honest in your application and you will easily get accepted

    PeerFly and Maxbounty are pretty easy to get accepted in.
    If you are looking to join PeerFly, hit up LukePeerfly he is affiliate manager at Peerfly and he is also on this forum.

      William Souza (CPA guru and owner of CPA evolution) told me to Mention his name to Luke. Souza is my FB friend and we often chat.

      I talked to Luke and Even with Corey (He actually approves)

      Luke asked my email address, Corey was also fine.

      I thought I am gonna get that advantage. But in vein I got rejected. It feels some sorta bitter when things go left instead of going right.

      I have spent thousands of bucks behind these traffic methods, I use paid LP creator (leadpages and megaphone). On the other hand, my student of YouTube marketing got nothing, but he has an approved PeerFly account. Kinda jealousy working inside I think or something else to be honest

    In order to be accepted into a network (especially MaxBounty) there are two important points that you'll want to remember.

    1. Be honest. Even if you're new to CPA don't try and make yourself out to be something you're not.

    2. Explain your plan for promoting offers at that network. Your traffic sources, strategy, niche, etc.

    If you do both of these things you greatly improve your chances of being approved.

    Good luck!

    calling them out after filling up your application is the best way to get in to be honest..
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[9544743].message }}
    • I agree with the above, calling them is always the best thing to do. Don't call them the exact same day you send the application, but the next day. If you're to shy to talk over the phone you can add an affiliate manger from that network to skype and talk to them. Explain that you are a real person and just starting out and I'm sure they'll understand. You can find affiliate managers skype ID's on affpaying.com when you click on the reviews for any network.

      Last but not least, don't get discouraged if you're not approved by one, move on to the next and that's it

    Yes, the best thing you can do in my opinion is to get them on the phone/skype and talk to them. And be honest with them about how you plan to promote their products, how much experience you have and don't be afraid to ask them questions about anything you don't understand (The same goes for future questions on new campaigns as well).

    I would also re-apply to places that have turned you down in a few weeks. This time call them first before you fill out the application form again.

    It helps alot to have a website in place especially if it's related to something the cpa network promotes. It could be a simple blog.
    You need to know what avenues you plan on taking to promote their products. Eg. if you using ppc let them know and how you plan on setting up campaign. You want them to know that you know what you are doing and you are serious about working with them. They are going to call you. What helps alot if you call them before they call you. This shows them that you are serious which is all they really want to know.

    Best way is really to have a "company style" website or even a blog for that matter. Linkshare, CJ, rakuten etc. are a bit different than the "regular" CPA networks since most of their pubs are running banner ads on their sites. With that said, you won't get an LCP approved.

    But seriously, there are hundreds of networks out there that you can apply to. So it's not like you won't be able to get signed up to a network. Some networks just don't want random people with no referrals, some networks don't really give a crap.

    Bottom line is, keep applying. There are so many it's ridiculous.

    I have never, ever gotten approved at any of the networks I applied to.

    I make money now from Amazon and the niche CPA networks that emailed me to ask me to join. How to do that?

    - create a good niche website
    - rank that website on the first page of SERPs
    - write a press release (make sure it has your real contact info prominently displayed)

    I got emails from affiliate managers right after I published a press release. They probably noticed that I was ranking for some great "money" keywords.

    The best way NOT to get rejected is to call them up first on the phone, have an informal chat so they can learn more about yourself and your company ... and then submit the application. I find that once they already know who you are, its a lot easier and quicker to get accepted. Also having a professional media or corporate type website is beneficial.

    Build a nice website first and have a good enough traffic then apply. Be sure to check confirmation emails or calls from them.
